I am not sure if other Muslims in other countries do this, but in Singapore, we would go visiting, which is to go visit family members whom we do not see on the daily, like my Mom’s aunts or uncles, elderly relatives, distant cousins and so on. When I was a little kid, I would get really excited when we go visiting, that’s because we would get green packets (money envelope) with cash in it from the host, and/or if there are other guests at the same house, we would get more than one green packets from the people that’s visiting too. At the end of the day, it was always exciting to find out how much cash we accumulated from all the visiting. Oh memories…

Now that I’m older, I don’t have the same feeling as when I was little when my family and I would go visiting, because I don’t get anymore green packets. The tables have turned my friends. It’s my turn now to give green packets to small children. It’s a tradition or a cultural thing. So as soon as you reached adulthood, have a job and earn a decent pay, the green packets stopped coming, and your pocket gets thinner. Just kidding!

P.s Sorry for the grainy pictures. I am still learning how to edit my pictures and hopefully, I get the hang of it soon. 🙂
