You might remember the money-scooping game that was all the rage last Chinese New Year (CNY).

A blindfolded individual will attempt to scoop money into a bowl or plate with utensils, usually a wok spatula.

While not as many people are playing the game this year, the results from those who have tried are still hilarious.

Organised by Jin Yinji

The game was recently played in veteran actress Jin Yinji's abode.

According to Chen Xiuhuan's Instagram post, Jin hosted a number of friends on the third day of CNY -- Jan. 24.

Jin can be seen happily spreading out a pile of S$2 and S$10 notes on a table before the game began.

Calvert Tay's attempt

Calvert Tay -- Zheng Geping and Hong Huifang's son -- managed to scoop a S$2 note in both his first and second attempts.

He wasn't that lucky during his final scoop.

This is how he reacted to winning a grand total of S$4:

The highlight of Chen's scoops was her second one:

However, as she tilted her bowl to allow the notes to be gathered more easily, onlookers returned her scooped notes to the table.

She eventually won S$18 without cheating:

Hong was the undeniable winner at the game. Although her first two scoops weren't the greatest, like such:

She did this on her final try:

The crowd (understandably) went wild at her success, and she was clearly taken aback too.
