Ang Pao

Skip Zodiac-cetric and Glue-on Ang Pao

Giving out ang pao is a chinese tradition and it’s inevitable but you can do it the “eco-friendlier” way. Use generic pattern ang pao over zodiac-centric ang pao so you can save the leftovers for next year. Also, choose those slot-in ang pao instea of glue-on ang pao so that those who received your ang pao can also reuse it after taken out the money.
