25.02.2013 | 新年利是

[Volume 8 Issue 2, #1676]
昨日元宵過後, 農曆新年正式曲終人散喇, 大家今年派咗或逗咗幾多封利是呢?? 我尚係正印「花仔」一名, 當然繼續享有逗利是嘅權利啦, 感謝各路親朋戚友派俾我以上嘅利是(雖然今年感覺少咗好多封, 哈哈!!).. 講到利是, 我有一個習慣, 就係會將父母俾嘅利是收起到下一年, 今年係拆舊年佢哋俾嘅利是.. 以此類推, 即係話父母永遠都有封利是陪住自己, 長長久久.. 其實真係冇咩特別意思, 就係咁多年嚟嘅一個習慣, 咁做我有種為父母積福嘅感覺.. 呢種做法當然係完全冇根據啦, 不過真係感覺良好㗎, 好似為佢哋做啲嘢咁囉.. :)
after chap goh meh last night, it means the chinese new year is officially over, how many angpows have you given or received this year?? i am still a "flower boy" (this is how the chinese call unmarried guys regardless their age) so i receive angpows instead of giving of course, thank you all relatives and friends for the angpows above (though it seems i have less this year, haha!!).. talk about angpows, i actually have a habit to keep those given by my parents until the following year, so the current year is opening the angpows given the past year.. and so on, meaning there will always be angpows from them with me all the time, until eternity.. no special reason but just a habit, doing so i feel like i am indirectly blessing them.. of course this is not any tradition but it does make me feel good, as if i am doing good merits for my parents.. :)

  4. So what's your grand total? Come, book a ticket with the money and come and visit me in Sibu!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Did you say 'blessing them'? I thought it would be more like the recipient being blessed - that is why the monetary amount is not as important as the hongbao itself being referred to as lai-see as in lai-lai see-see. No?

    1. The angpow packet is very important to keep. That is the blessing for you from the person who gave you the angpow.

  6. 呢個做法我都唸過,不過到咗半年緊急關頭通常都唔work!哈哈

  7. Good morning, Ah Boy! Have you deposit your angpow's money into the bank? Follow Hot Mama's advice, must choose the most prosperous-looking cashier (or machine?) as today is a good day to bank-in $$$ and huat later!

    1. must be queueing up in front of the bank now la. That's why no time to reply comments hahaha

    2. Muahahahaha! I have passed the job to my jin jin. According to the fengshui master, you can try to pinjam the jamban in the bank. Go to the bank jamban, bring back a small bottle of the pipe water. Keep it in your house, you will be blessed with lots of wealth through out the year. Then, you can also drink the water if you want to get wealth for the rest of your life. This last statement I added one,

    3. This task, to pinjam jamban in the bank is quite impossible leh. The security guard will looks at you fiercely if you ever asked for, "Pinjam toilet kejap, Abang Guard?".

      The toilet is usually located inside the office and they don't simply allow strangers into it, Unless you have emergency case, like lau-sai :p

    4. MBB in Midvalley use jamban in the mall, I think. Betul tak?

      So use MidValley jamban, can ah? wakaka

      Delete
    5. errr drink that water ah....errr...scare scare la...reminds me of the bones in my office tanki LOL

      can la pinjam jamban in the bank...if ask nicely they will pinjam one...guard purposely look fierce mah.

      Eh If that is the case Bank Jamban no good...coz it's in RM mah...must pinjam jamban from gold shop la...those poh kong ...tomei...gold price will only increase and no decrease geh while RM fluctuate one.

  8. Good morning, SK and all! Oh, I received ang pows from my mum and god MIL. I gave a lot without counting. It's only once in a year. My kids received not much. Do you believe they don't even have over RM100 each? Well, my people gave very little, Rm6 or less. I gave max RM20 but I gave my kids more definitely.

    1. Oh, angpow consists RM5 is considered standard in my town here. When my daughter received RM10 angpow, she smiled from ear to ear.

      I also give RM5... stingy Ah Hua. But hey, it's the thought that counts, yes?

      Delete
    2. I agree, RM5 is the standard in my house too. Kekeke! My kids still received angpow at RM2 and RM4. Never mind, it is just a blessing in the angpow, and not so much the value of it.

      I still received angpow from my Auntie and my big sister.

      I will keep these two angpows for very a long time then only I realized I need to open it.

    3. This year I happily gave out ang pows the most and no qualms. I believe the more I give will be the more I receive. It apllies to everything we do in life.

      Delete
    4. Use toilet and collect bank water? How interesting dei! I know that it would be good to deposit money and donate to charity would be great. I will sit inside the bank for half hour and inhale the money chi.

    5. aiyo...angpau market rate is high...min rm5...

      J didnt receive much angpau la but the amount is big numbers . Probably coz its the only child so people tend to give more instead of RM5.

      Ya kids tend to be excited to see the number.

      haiz...this year J opps one time...an auntie gave him angpau and he opened immeiately. Before that have told him cannot open but guess he la k of sleep and too excited. Paiseh betul

  10. "how many angpows have you given or received this year?". I have 'output' and 'input', with more input than output, hehehehe!

    I received angpows solely from my parents and in laws, but I'm the keeper for my kids' angpow too, leaving little amount for them to keep underneath their pillow and the rest is deposited into the bank.

    1. my output is usually more than input coz only one child mah while others have more. LOL

  11. SK said Ang Pow Mari...Anay said Ang Pow pergi..! Lol

  12. Eh! Why my ang pow on top one ah? Is it the smallest amount floats on top and biggest sink heavily below?

    ReplyDelete

  24. i thought angpows are only for married ones????

    ReplyDelete
  25. i love that idea ... opening the angpows from last year instead of the current one ... apart from the excitement of knowing what's inside..the concept of checking that they had given you last year is very overwhelming

    ReplyDelete
  26. 今年换的800大元都去到7788了 =.="

    ReplyDelete
  27. hahah If I receive ang pao, at the same day I open it and view it. Not sure got bad meaning or not because I saw many people post that they open ang pao right after CNY which is right after 15th day of CNY . . . . huhuhu

    ReplyDelete
  28. I will feel kinda hand itchy if I don open my ang pao for this year because I might use them to buy snack and sweet drinks for myself hehehehe :P
