Christmas and New Years may be over, but the festivities aren't. With Chinese New Year, it's time to gather the family, eat till you drop, and indulge in some friendly lo hei over reunion dinners.
A glorious 15 day celebration, Chinese New Year officially starts on Saturday, Jan 25, and ends on Saturday, Feb 8.
Apart from the delicious feasts and gatherings with loved ones, Chinese New Year is also about giving and receiving lucky red packets that we affectionately call ang baos (红包).
A symbol of good luck and happiness, these red packets are exchanged during this festive season between close family and relatives.
But just how much should you bao in an ang bao? Here's a rough estimate based on a regular Singaporean's income and not a Crazy Rich Asian's.PHOTO: SingSaver.com.sg
