    Aunty Becky, I am still counting all the years that we have met and yet to receive an ang pau from you. Kung hei fatt choi.

  6. Hi, Peter. It’s been a long time since we last met… Zone J (Zone 11) Christmas Gathering in 2005(???)
    Do get in touch when you’re back in Penang. God Bless, Susan

    I hope to meet all of you again. Wishing you a blessed year!

  7. One of the problems of being disabled is people don’t treat us as respectable adults. A blind friend told me once he was invited to a party for visually impaired persons. He was asked to play games that youngsters play. And also treated like children. An unmarried disabled person often do not have the same status as married siblings in same family. But I think some people may gave you ang pow for good luck. Anyway I wish you a happy and healthy new year.

    Gong xi fa cai. May you be blessed with good health and prosperity.

  8. I tells all my married relatives, friends, customers, clients, colleagues that as long as they want to give, I will accept. Even those younger than me in age, they still give me, as long as they are married!!

    Of course, sometimes, I do felt pai-seh, but on 2nd tot, nvm la… God willing, when I am qualified to give, they & their children will benefits !! 😉

    But I have been receiving ang paus for the entire 40 years of my life wor.
