Its already very good that you get money from your cousins - ie very close relatives.
I took the weddings for my bro and sis in law. Main PG. Multi-day overseas weddings (in laws are from Indonesia). Got nothing....not even APs. Even the bride's family jie meis all got ang pow.
I took 4 days leave total, ie 6-8 weekday weddings opportunity gone as I usually take 1/2 day for weekdays.
And that period i turned down 3 couples who are quite ready to book - loss of over 3k.
But cannot take money, coz my wife will hantum me. Bo bian...
Somemore overseas wedding....imagine i lug 3 cams overseas.... 150+ tables. Heng Singapore don't have.
But now FIL helped my wife and I earn hell lots in the NYSE now from April.
BIL also shared tips and helped earned a fair bit. Like tonight i no time to monitor LVS/BAC/FAZ as I got a wedding banquet to shoot, they all chip in to monitor, and later into the trading day all no need to sleep..... while I sleep as I have to work tomorrow.
My own parents want to invest/trade too, my mum asked her big brother to help - "ummm better not lar". LL.
So in the end my in-laws have to help her. I actually have account, but 20K limit do nuts man.... not that I don't wanna do.
This kind of lobang where to get? Broker also don't provide!
Family cannot kay gao so much lar....you give lobang, people usually will return favour...monetary or otherwise. Imagine if i charged $$$, you think they will be so willing to share their lobangs back now?
Its a pretty crude example, but I hope the point gets across. Family - don't have to count until the last dollar.
If outside friends, or distant relative....of course whack lar....
