yes. i do give angpows... but not specifically for CNY cleaning. angpow can range between 50-200 depending on maid performance over the year.

For CNY, yes
Not any for CNY cleaning.
She's paid for regular cleaning throughout the year.
If need lots of cleaning for CNY, to me it means regular cleaning not thorough.

Yes for CNY.

No additional cleaning needed for CNY as everything is taken out to clean at regular intervals throughout the year.

I don't give ang pows but I give goodies to tutors, coaches and bus drivers for the festive seasons, eg CNY cookies, mooncakes and log cakes.
