Heng! Ong! Huat!

Angpow packets from Aeon Big. 5 in a pack with different colours and words. I don't know what Heng means and which dialect it is supposed to be in.

From Aeon.

from Quill City Mall

Same design when the cover is lifted up.

  1. Pretty angpow packets of different designs. I used to collect angpow packets many years ago but have since stopped. I also do not know the meaning of Heng.

  2. Quill city one is nice. The Aeon words are all in Hokkien... one of my uncles is named Heng but I have forgotten what it means!

  3. Your this post gave me the inspiration to post about my Ang Bao collection, do wait for my post

    If I am not wrong, heng should be a Teochew word, cos my friend is Teochew and her surname is heng

    I like the Cheongsam Ang Bao

    1. The meaning of Heng is Lucky, when you say somebody is heng, you mean he or she is lucky
