Ox'picious Year

2009 is turning out to be a terrible year, by all accounts, though we are only one month into it. For the Chinese, 2009 has just started and true to tradition, we wish everyone a 'Fat' year. Many pass red packets around, but you can buy an ox home, like the one above too. It is carrying sacks of faux gold ingots on both sides and the whole ox costs S$168. It isn't made of bronze or gold, just some plastic, I think. I saw this in a neighbourhood shop just before the Chinese New Year.

I wonder if someone bought it?
