When I lived in Hong Kong many years ago we gweilos used to say Kung Hey Fat Choi! Smile

If I remember correctly, Christmas was Sing Dan Fai Lo. A little late for that though.

I wonder if it's still customary for workers to receive a month's salary as a bonus for Chinese New Year.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

A month's salary? Wow...

There is the angpow but I think it varies in amount of course. Smile

Remember Pakar, the wages of the average Hong Kong Chinese worker back in those years was about $HK 1,500/month, at that time about equal to $US 300/mo; and it was surely calculated as total annual salary cost. Still, I wonder if the tradition is still practiced.
