Ang pow or Red packets for Chinese New Year 2016
It's the time of the year again, next week we welcome the Chinese New Year - Year of the Monkey. So went around the respective banks to collect the complimentary angpow or red packets. During the Chinese New Year, ang pow or red envelopes are given by the married to the unmarried, most of whom are children. But we also give angpows to the eldery (our parents or eldery relatives). The amount in the angpow will depend on how close both parties are. The closer (being parents/childen) will receive generous amount while children of friends of friends will get lesser.
