Preserve the tradition of giving "ang pao"

shopee ang pao
On top of the festive food and drinks, superb dragon dances, and the last-minute shopping for new clothes, the Chinese also look forward to receiving red packets, or ang paos, during house visits and reunions with relatives. The giving of ang paos during Chinese New Year is a meaningful gesture, with the red color of the envelope symbolizing energy, happiness, and good luck. These are traditionally handled out by married couples to the young generations, as a sign of goodwill and a symbol of fortune. 

Although big gatherings are currently banned, you can still digitally send ang paos to your loved ones via ShopeePay! ShopeePay is Shopee's integrated mobile wallet that lets you pay for your online purchases, utility bills, NBI clearance, and radio-frequency identification (RFID) stickers. 

Here's how you can digitally money to friends and relatives.
