Hi
We did...$6 each, 1 for the driver and 1 for the helper, Aunite. And with 2 oranges for each of them. That's for my Kindy boy.
As for the Pri sch boy, we din do that for the bus driver and aunty.

I was thinking of giving $18 to both, is it too much? I just gave a box of mandarin oranges last week.

Guess it is up to individuals, whether or not to give and how much. We normally prepare some $6 ang baos and will give them out to the regular cleaners in our estate, sch bus drivers or any service personnel whom we engage. DH will even give to waiters/waitresses who serve our table at restaurants if we dine out during CNY.

Never give before. Always dun start anything if you dun want to maintain it for the next 6 years. $18 is a bit much...

I used to give $10 to my DD's van driver and auntie (Nursery to K2).

I gave $20 to my swimming instructor. He also gave $2 to all the children. I think it is personal preference; if you are happy with them, you can give some token of appreciation.
