NETIZEN DEVELOPS FORMULA TO CALCULATE HOW MUCH ANG PAO TO GIVE FOR WEDDINGS

A netizen has developed an amazingly accurate “Ang Pao Rate Calculator” for Singaporeans to use when going to their friends or relatives’ weddings.

Try it out and see how much you get!

“New formula for ang bao to pack for wedding:

AngBao$ = MarketRate x (1 – 1/[#ofYrsKnown]) x (1 – 1/[FreqOfContact]) + {optional}(MarketRate x [FeelGoodFactor] x [#ofYrsKnown]%) – {optional}([#ofYrsNoContact]/[#ofYrsKnown]x100%)

, where FeelGoodFactor range from 1 to 10, FreqOfContact can be # of times hang out or talked in the duration of friendship, #ofYrsNoContact is the number of years the person has not contacted you.

Example1: friend of 10yrs, frequently hang out, hotel wedding with rate of $150

AngBao$ = $150 x (1 – 0.1) x (1 – [1/100]) + {optional}($150 x 140%) – {optional}$0
= $190

Example2: friend of 10 years, never heard for 9 years, hotel with rate of $150

AngBao$ = $150 x (1 – 0.1) x (1 – [1/2]) + {optional}$0 – {optional}90%
= $8 rounded”
