IT has become a trend for parents in China to throw luxurious banquets for children who successfully enter universities.
They would organise a banquet with about 30 to 40 tables and their guests would have to fork out ang pow for such events, according to China Press, citing a Xinhua News Agency report.
A guest said he spent 4,000 yuan (about RM2,200) on ang pow for the banquets recently, and that for every invitation, he gave at least RM100.
“I can no longer afford it,” he said.
Another guest who earns about RM3,300 a month said he spent about RM1,700 on ang pow last month alone.
Many guests interviewed said they could no longer afford to attend such events.
