    Ang bao: How much?

    How much should I put in the envelope, and do I give the envelope to everybody who is friendly to me, or just to one person, and then it gets pooled and distributed equally among all the stuff?

    Ooops just seen this post...

    Best to put an equal amount of $$$ in the packet ... cos according to my experience... the staff do compare their takings..... so U wanna come across as being a Fair person...

    Always end the figure with an *8* for good luck...

    Thanks Melissa. Since nobody replied I ended up giving nothing. I guess that's why they stopped smiling?

    Is it really you that gorgeous girl?

    well... its always nice to give a little something as a gesture of good will...Its not so much of how much but rather....the meaning behind the packets...

    what I do know its for good luck and prosperity....

    so that is why some people go around massively collecting packets....

    Picture - not me ... just some other gal that looks a tiny wad like me...lolx
