    The guy who said "It's more blessed to give than to receive." is obviously either not married or not Chinese.

    Anyway, dunno whether to start spring cleaning now.

    i agree, as you get older, you will recieve lesser in the amount, i also seen a fell in 1998, cos of the stupid financial crisis and ppl start to noe there is no job for life.

    My father just did the official spring cleaning yesterday.
    It to clean "for show". Something like that lah.
    He just clean the corners with some leaves (looks like bamboo leaves).
    The rest is up to us to clean ourselves.

    Remember when i was young, the whole family really clean the whole house.
    move the things out, clean and move them back.
    flood the kitchen floor and scrub...
    You are who you are. Shoot what you enjoy.

    Write outside the Ang Pows "Samples Only". The robbers will leave you alone.
