Lawrence Wong May Be Giving S$3K Ang Pows To Each Of His Staff For CNY As He “Earned A Little More” This Year
Where do we sign up to work for the star?
Chinese New Year is just around the corner (reminder that we’re already more than halfway through January 2022), so for the latest episode of #JustSwipeLah, host Juin Teh sat down with Reunion Dinner stars Lawrence Wong, Xiang Yun, and Das Dharamahsena for a CNY-themed chat over their own mini hotpot meals.
Naturally, one of the topics that was brought up was ang pows, which are “very important things to prepare”, at least according to Xiang Yun.
When asked how she decides how much to give away every year, the veteran actress, 60, said that she usually sets aside S$5, S$10, or S$20 for each person, just as “a token”.
“I heard from my friend in China that they give red packets with the equivalent of S$50 inside,” she shared, before asking Lawrence, who’s been dividing his time between Singapore and China since skyrocketing to Yanxi Palace fame, if that’s the case for him when he’s over there.
