Q: What do you think of the lucky money thing?

My parents want to help their divorced big daughter, who has a 9 years old son, so they gave the 9 yo boy thousands as the lucky money in Spring Festival as a way to help their daughter. My big sister will keep the money for her son for paying education fee and others.

But I think may be the boy thinks it is too easy to get money and become rotten. When he just finishes university and has no experience, he may not want to work on low paid job in the beginning as he could get thousands so easy when he was a kid and teenager.

All I can see here is envy that they didn't give it to you, sorry.

I consider all money lucky that resides in my wallet (ha ha ha). With that said, if the mother explained to the son that the money was to pay for his future education, perhaps the boy wouldn't consider it "free money" to buy everything. When I was young, savings bonds were used for that purpose. 

 

Hell, I don't know...if the boy is brought up properly, he won't be a lazy, greedy person. If he's brought up as a little emperor, he will be. It's all up to those who raise him.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
