Not really...I don't have much relatives. Even if i had some they'd pretend to not know me just because my family is poor.
Oh yeah, for those "red bags"... That's a strange name to me...We call it "Ang Pao" over here! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>------------------

Miserly relatives, feh. We've always called them hong baos, literally meaning red bags. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>------------------

Oh, I forgot, that "Ang Pao" is in Hokkien, while "Hong Bao" is in Mandarin! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">
Is that right? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>------------------
