Ruby Lee Age: 15 Top tunes: songs by Ella Koon I haven't opened my red packets yet, but I guess I would have about $2,000 - the same as every other year. I had hoped for more this year, as the economy is improving and people are more generous. I will put most of the money in the bank. Serena Lui Age: 15 Top tunes: Kelly Clarkson's Because of You I received more than $1,000. I'm a bit disappointed because I thought I'd get more than that. I didn't visit many relatives this year because I was lazy. Last year, I received almost $3,000. This year, I'll go shopping and spend the money on clothes and accessories. I want to get some new clothes for spring, including a Japanese brand T-shirt which costs $700. Yui Age: 16 Top tunes: Japanese songs I received $1,000 and gave half to my mother. I'm not as lucky as my friends who don't need to share their lai see with their parents. But I understand my parents' situation because they have to spend a lot of money over the Lunar New Year. I think I won't have to give them my lai see after I get married - but then I'll have to give out lai see. Shiu Chan Age: 16 Top tunes: I seldom listen to music I don't know because I haven't opened my red packets yet. According to tradition, lai see should only be opened after the 15th day of the Lunar New Year. In the past, I got about $800 to $900. I will spend the money on new clothes for spring. I enjoy Christmas more than Lunar New Year because there are more parties. Ben Wong Age: 18 Top tunes: I seldom listen to music I have no idea, I haven't counted the money yet. I would guess that I got several hundred dollars. I'm not sure what to do with the money, but Valentine's Day is around the corner, so I will have to buy a present for my girlfriend. There is nothing special that I want to buy for myself. I bought lots of things before the Lunar New Year.
