January 21, 2019
Ahead of Chinese New Year, Bangkok Bank has prepared red ‘Ang Pao’ envelopes depicting auspicious magpies representing good fortune. The envelopes also carry the Chinese character ‘Fu’ representing ‘happiness’ and ‘luck,’ as well as four Chinese words, ‘Gong he xin xi,’ meaning ‘Best Wishes for New Year,’ which Chinese believe will bring good fortune and an auspicious year. Each year Bangkok Bank gives the red envelopes to its customers for them to use when giving blessings to their families and other people at Chinese New Year.
