Jade Seah hits the streets to find out how much ang pow money S'poreans will give

'Kena' a 'red bomb' (received a wedding invitation) and dreading the expensive red packet you have to 'bao' (pack)? Not sure how much money to give at weddings?

Here in Asia, we typically give red packets filled with an amount of cash rather than wedding presents, which is more of a Western tradition.

The amount to put in always takes a bit of figuring out - too much and you might look a bit of a show-off; too little and you look like a cheapskate or a bad friend/relative.

In her latest YouTube video, local celeb Jade Seah does the dirty for you and ambushes people on the streets in Singapore to find out how they figure this social situation out.
