30.01.2012 | 利利是是

[Volume 7 Issue 1, #1309]
相信大家今日都開晒工返晒學喇, 新年一共逗(或派)咗幾多封利是?? 我就逗咗十八封咁啦, 其中一半仲要係同舊同學一個小小聚會中逗返嚟嘅, 呵呵!! 好多人話:「仲好意思?? 今年逗埋明年要派喇!!」.. 其實我絕對唔覺得醜囉, 親朋戚友派得利是俾我係佢哋福氣, 我開心接受係一種禮貌, 所以就算食到80歲, 都係同樣想法架.. :)
i believe everyone is back to work or study by today already, so how many angpows have you collected (or given)?? i got like 18 and half of them are from old classmates during a little gathering, haha!! many said "still getting angpows?? make sure this is the last year and you'll be giving next year!!".. frankly i never feel embarrass to get angpows, because i think it's a bliss to those relatives and friends to be able to give, and it's being polite to happily accept them right?? so even if i'm 80, i'll still think the same.. :)

  5. Every year it has become a painful chore just to get ready for ang pows! I had to run from bank to banks to get new notes! In the end, I got nothing as I wanted RM10 notes which were grabbed by early birds!

  6. I have given out almost 60 packets already.....my pocket is lighter.

  7. Like you, I do take the trouble to specially buy lovely and very exclusive red packets for those special ones like parents and close ones. I feel happy to give now unlike the first year when I went emo instead. Ha ha ha!

  8. I was shocked to see FB where some fellas complained or boasted their collection totals so openly. I thought it was silly!

  11. "make sure this is the last year and you'll be giving next year!!" I have said this phrase to my nephew and nieces. Every year, I still receive an Ang Pau from my Mum and my Quay Lo. My family is not too big so there are not many ang paus to give away. Still got few rounds of lunch to meet up with old classmates, dance mates and blogger friends so after that I will know how many have I given out:D. I am very happy to give out ang paus especially to the guards, a waitresses who serve us at a restaurant, jokeys that park our car because the smile I put on the face is more than what is inside the ang paus! Enjoy the rest of CNY. Cheers!

  24. I still give ang pows to my same-age-and-still-single friends. They do accept it with happy faces, I reckon there's a child in every heart despite the age :)
