Simple. Just have more kids than any of the families you visit.

Don't work.....families with lesser kids can give your children less. Especially if they think you already so rich.

Hmm...actually, what is the standard going rate now?

I heard anything below $4 is going to earn you the title of "cheapest-skate uncle". To be accepted, at least $6. To get respect, at least $10. To be worshipped, $50 and above.

That would put u somewhere between your great grandmother and your grandmother.

Come to think of it... I was just told of a very innovative way of distributing ang pows... put up a Christmas tree and hang all your ang pows up there. Put different values in your ang pows... from $2 to $50. When the kids come, get them to pick their own ang pows. So everything is based on luck lor... and nobody needs to complain.

Smart hor?

What a fantastic idea!!....the $50 ones hang high high...all the children cannot reach. Better still, don't put at all...but make sure they don't compare and smell a _rat_.

:lol: First of all....GXFC to all of you!!

When i read about the idea of hanging the ang bao on the xmas tree, i could not stop laughing!!!! WOnderful idea, might give it a go next year.. really like the idea of hanging the ONE with $50 note of the TIP of the tree. Doubt any child could go that HIGH!!

Nowadays, children are not STUPID. WHen they got an ang bao with $2 in it, they might be wondering "why this uncle or aunty so cheap=poh!" eheh...no doubt, all of us do know that the amount is not important But cant help it, dun wan to be branded cheap=poh!

Agreed that the going rate is $4-$6. Children of buddies, could go up to $20, with nephews/nieces at $50.
