It's times like these that I wish I kept my Chinese...
But I know a few words on the right. If I were to take a stab at reading it, I'd say the bottom left 2 words on the right page say pony, or "small horse". That much I know. The same words are found at the top of that page...
And the second word down on the right page on the right side I think might mean "love" or "friendship" or something like that...
I guessing... My little pony Friendship is Magic? If I'm lucky, it's in one of those phrases... but I'm probably wrong.
And I'm thinking that instrument is the... "Er Hu"? I've seen it before; I've even considered learning it, but... I think it only has one string, so I'm probably wrong. A few variants I've seen had 2 strings, so I'd bet on Erhu.
But I thought that these things were called "hong-bao"(Red packet). My family has been celebrating this for our entire lives, and I'm almost completely sure it's not lai see. It may be a different language, but in mandarin (what most people call standard Chinese), it's definitely hong-bao. And I'm pretty sure your text is in Mandarin (simplified?). Otherwise my Chinese knowledge has gone to total crap.
I really wish I kept a bit more knowledge towards my family traditions... oh well. I'm probably making an ass of myself as I type this.

Yup the words on top are the Chinese translation they use for the show in Taiwan and Hong Kong [link]

Correct as well the instrument is an erhu.
Lai See is the Cantonese word for the Red Envelopes.
