Bloobi, took me a while. KSP's probably talking about purple $2's; red $10's and blue $50's!

Think the purple can't be $1000 right??!?! :!: :!:

This is our usual practise.

Other relatives' maids that we see at gathering - $2

Kids in general - $6 as we've 3 kids. Most exchange are $4 but they have 2 kids so cannot let ppl lugi.

Special cases - $10 (eg. unmarried grown up cousin)

Immediate nieces/ nephews - $20 (we all use the same rate for years) The funny thing is the most of them have 2 kids but we've 3 and youngest sil has 1. But it's still a flat rate per child.

Grandparents - $100 each

Parents - $200 each

Share market has been having diarrhoea lately so maybe some who got burnt might cut down the budget.....

$10 for first cousins and first cousins' kids and our 2 remaining single good friends :wink: ;
$20 for my sole niece and my sista (now gotta give her boyfren some more ...aiyah DH says this is future dividends :evil: );

Yah, nowadays, my minimum is $4 (last year $2 cos hangcheng pai). Not that this year is better like MMM says, but there's this feeling of inflation, like my plate of charkwayteow shrink like that.

Kids we meet, and maids - $4
My nephews and nieces - $20
Sister (bopian!) - $50
Parents, PIL -$100

Your parents sound so wonderful!
