This is a discussion on CNY ang bao protocols within the Home Life, Relationships & Finance forum, part of the You and Your Family category; Originally Posted by meiteoh Meaning you give out two instead of one. Very siong!!! *Faint* So far I didn't hear ...
That's what my hubby side practise.
we've been doing that for the past 8 years and will do it this year and beyond too.
not xiong actually. cos give double but the amount half loh. end up same amount as giving one angbao. haha.
I feel very not environmental friendly but my hubby insist on following the tradition.
I see I see... Yeah actually quite waste of Angpows... Unless they find your angpow very nice, otherwise is just take the money and throw away.
my friends keep asking for angbao! so im not supposed to give them right?! zzzzzzzz
hah my friends also ask me to give AP after i marry but i tell them wait long long!
from what my cousin told me, those cousins or relatives who r older but single no need to give. (that's what they practise)=X just need to give relatives kids/friends kids(when we meet them). and if after i marry, the elders (like g.parents/uncles/aunts) still gimme AP, i will still take, cos its their well wishes and its also not good to reject ppl's AP. but if they dont give, im OK with it.
i think every family have their own culture so very hard to guage what is the standard practice.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
We only give 1 AP. Some people give 2, some give 1, but no1 bother about it. haha. My friends also ask for AP, I just ignore them haha.
