Singapore ‘No Boyfriend/Girlfriend’ and ‘Not Married’ face masks designed to avoid unwanted questions

SINGAPORE – As Chinese New Year celebrations draws near amid the worldwide pandemic, a face mask is essential when family members and friends go visiting each other. Singapore’s homegrown brand wheniwasfour has designed special face masks to fend off relationship status questions from kaypoh relatives.
With the ongoing pandemic, this year’s Chinese New Year celebrations will be quite different from what we are used to. Other than sticking to the eight-person rule during gatherings and using e-hongbaos instead of physical red packets, we’ll all have to don a face mask while visiting family and friends.
Well, there’s a silver lining to the mask-wearing if you are dreading being grilled by kaypoh relatives about your relationship status — you have the answer for them on your mask before the question comes if you get these ones from homegrown brand wheniwasfour.
Designed for Chinese New Year, these masks have phrases like “Happy new year. I do not have a boyfriend, I do not have a girlfriend” printed on the front of the mask in Chinese.
For those who are constantly being asked when the wedding bells are, consider getting the mask with “Happy new year. I still do not want to get married” on its front.
For couples who are married without a little one, there is also a mask for you that says “Happy new year, I still do not want to have a child”.
If you are blessed with relatives who know how to mind their own business, wheniwasfour has other themed masks that can help you jazz up your Chinese New Year #OOTD.
For instance, a bak kwa mask that looks similar to our favourite but very heaty Chinese New Year snack.
There is also the Huat Flakes mask which is inspired by the popular haw flakes snack that many of us 90’s kids would remember from our childhood, but with extra “prosperity”. Alternatively, get the Huatmate Condensed milk mask.
All the wheniwasfour masks cost $10.90 each and are available on their website or physical store at Bras Basah Complex.
