A Grab driver by the name of David Yao shared a post on a group for private hire drivers on a pleasant experience in which he experienced while doing his job during the Chinese New Year festivities.

He shared that a female passenger which he had picked up gave him an ang bao of $80, pleasantly surprising him as he did not expect to get an ang bao from passengers anymore and furthermore he feels that the amount inside received from the passenger who is a ‘stranger’ in this context is very generous.

Based on an unofficial guide for ang bao rates in Singapore, a ‘stranger’ usually gets $4-$10 and an amount like $80 is usually only for closer family, relatives and friends.

Here is the netizen’s post

“Nv expect to get any angbao anymore.

Surprise to get one today and even more surprise this lady pax is so generous”
