It's been a good one so far! Hope everyone's enjoying the reunion dinners and angpau back where they are.

Are you in Netherlands or your name is just netherlands? Is angpau in min nan dialect?

Haha, I'm not in Netherlands. At the time of creating an account on here, I was casually glancing at a jacket that my Dutch cousin had gifted me, and it had Netherlands on it, so, tada.

I'm actually based in Malaysia. Also, I have no idea. We Malaysian-Chinese just romanize the word as 'angpau' or 'hongpau.'

Oh that's cool. I have a friend from Malaysia and I think the Chinese there is more based off Min nan language, so more Taiwanese.

I'm currently in Netherlands, thats why I was wondering. Haha.
