Does your husband gives angpow?

Very, very curious. I demand angpow every year. You know…like those rubbish collectors who will go from house to house and ask for angpows? I will also ‘teh’ for my angpow. (see the meaning of ‘teh’)

So, after ‘teh-ing’, I sure get my angpow. But hor, I usually stuffed the packet somewhere until I forget all about it. I think the packet I got last year is somewhere in my piles of clothes. My angpow is 5x more than what my kids get individually. So, can say very huge amount also lah. Enough for me to get a nice handphone or nice digicam.

Therefore, wives, do your husbands give angpows to you? I got it even when I was working. Is that a tradition of yours? Tell, please……And husbands, do you kasi angpow sama itu bini?

  1. ooh..yes. I demand angpow every year too. In fact i started demanding it since we started dating, but he never give until after we got married. I never open the angpow hubby gives. I keep them as it is. So, i never check the amt. But he tell me that he increase the amt every year, to symbolize that the relationship means more each year 🙂 .

  2. Erin – My atm not so yok sin and chau yong lah. Adoi! Hahaha.
