Ang Pao - Double This Year!!

The lunar year of Rabbit will be my 1st year of giving out Ang Pao =) And it will be DOUBLE! I found this statement from Wikipedia: “In keeping with Chinese customs, newly wedded couples are usually expected to be extremely generous with the amount offered in the red packets, so as to receive blessings for a blissful marriage.” Wow, the word “extremely” really carry a lot of weight here, hehehehe~ Anyway, to me, by giving out the Ang Pao means you are sharing the prosperous and happiness together with your family and friends, and for those married person who did not do so, it would mean that he or she would be "out of luck" in the new year….hehe!

I noticed nowadays the Ang Pao packet no longer produced in RED only, but there is also PINK, YELLOW, GOLD in color. I still prefer to have the Ang Pao in RED and PINK; it’s symbolizes good luck and is supposed to ward off evil spirits ^_^ Really can’t wait for the Chinese New Year, hope this Rabbit will brings all the lucks and prosperous to us =)
