Chinese New Year is always so fun, I am so proud of being a Chinese because Ang Bao (Red Packet or aka Red Envelope) makes me happy. Actually it’s the same, in the west, Christmas gift makes people happy too, it’s just that we Chinese don’t buy gift, and cash is what we get. Simple and easy, no headache what to pick as gift for people.
Received quite a lot of ang bao in the past 15 days of Chinese New Year, now it ended and I got no chance to receive ang bao already. How much money inside the ang bao is not really important, the heart of giving and the happiness of receiving are more important. Some have good design too, mom purposely bought a lot of special designed ang bao from Guangzhou for Chinese New Year.
There’s also other not so pretty and simple design. I like to see good looking designed ang bao, but in the end I will still throw it all away. No point keeping it.
The best part is not the design it’s the-inside! =D
