Oh.. talking about $1 angpows.. dear daughter received $1 angpow the yr before last! Omg. Almost fainted. After that, never went that house for visiting anymore. LOL.
i told my hubby last yr that my boss's hubby gave her $888 every cny for good luck n stuff. so good... so after that, my hubby also give me. but only $88. hahaha.... but i didnt give him. *guilty* dont know this yr will increase or not, since i gave him a cheeky little boy. HAHAHAHAHA....
o_O Like that I must also ask dear husband ... LOL.
Now economic no good .. how was the new year angpao will you give ?
i like the idea of giving red packets to hubby, i didn't know that red packet mean good luck and all the good stuff, now i do. does the bank have new notes now or do we have to ask for them?
My standard are, parents each is 80*4=320, hubby grandma $40, then niece/nephew will be $6, normal is $4 per packet.
Ya my dear husband said he will give me angbao coz we are husband n wife hahaaa...think i shld also give him to let him HUAT !!!!
My nieces and nephew all I give is $12, cos before I marry my cousins gave me $12... haha, now they also give the same amount to my dear son. . .
for parents depend on each year economy, from $88 t0 $188 each.
others from $4 to $6.
got 1 relative house, every year i go, the cousin always hide in the room and never come out to give ang pow one. So after 2 years, I go their house, I also never give ang pow to his children. . .
i start giving out red packet only last year, this yr i also keep a namelist of hw much i will be distributing...so i dont anyhow give too much...hehe! me super CAT right?
this yr i think i will give ouut $4 Red packet to those not too close children/ppl. TIMES are Bad...
we dont give parent ang pow as most of the CNY expenses are paid by us even the red packet $$$ is we sponsor so... ...
As for relatives, if i remember hw much they give me before married, i will give the same to their kids if not i have $10, $8 , $6 & $4 category.
Just give whatever you can afford
