Otoshidama and New Year Holidays

---otoshidama---

During the January 1st, Japanese children receives cash envelopes from parents, grandparents and relatives and of course, the Sasaki clan is one big family!! Wakaba and Haruka had lots of otoshidama from them and to my surprise, I received from my MIL and Obachan (great grand mother)too!!\(^0^)/ We will keep the half of their money at the bank and it's up to them on how they will spend the half of it. Wakaba and Haruka bought some fukubukuro for shopping as planned before the new year and they wanted to save the other half of it. Good girls!!(mine is paubos na lol!!) never thought that on a very young age, they have learned to be thrifty like their Mom ( who?me?lol!)We celebrated our New Year holidays the busiest and yet a very happy one!!^_^
---while their wives were busy talking in the kitchen, here' s our husband and my BIL doing their part of taking care of the kids. Took a snap of it lol!---
--Wakaba, Haruka and cousin Yuina watching their favorite anime which make them stay silent for awhile lol!!--
---looking for some lucky bags for grabs for the new year that they received from their otoshidama. It' s amazing to hear them talking about what to spend on their money most especially when they said of not spending all of the money---
---Fukubukuro or lucky bags from Mr. Donuts( 10 donuts of your choice plus Mr.Donuts cutie character goods for 1,000 yen ), Rilakkuma(below pic), Fresh Pretty Cure( undies ), and bought some stationery sets,too---
---here' s what's inside of the lucky bag( heart shaped pillow, fleece blanket set, notebook, a file and coin purses for 2,000 yen)

Have a nice day to everybody!!^_^

Mga anak mo pala ang mayaman this 2010 mami clang hehehe. sa atin if kids gets cash we let them keep it or put it in the bank. But my husband kept all jake and justine and my cash we got from their grandma waaaa, yan sa sobrang kahirapan ng buhay pati pera ng anak kinukuha haaaysbuhay parang life.

Anyway, buti pa si haruka at wakaba they got to keep their own money. daming na shopping nga mga chikiting mo ahh, nakalugsong d i mo from bundok tralala heheh joke lng.

Napaka-ii ko talaga mga girls mo, sana ganyan din si azumi paglaki.. Wag magmana sa akin (at huwag din magmana sa mama ko na kechi lol)... sayang naman ang fukuburo sa Mr. donut, pweding pang regalo.. next time ulit.

Wow.. lots of "hung pao" that's a Chinese term for red envelope. That's a good start for the New Year Mommy Clangz..hahaha.

We have the same tradition Mommy, my Korean in-laws and the entire clan were giving red envelope too after we bowed for the elderly wearing the traditional Korean "Hanbook".
So if you have 2 to 3 kids, you will get lots of moolah hahaha..bec the kids need to bow once again for the uncles and aunts which means another set of red envelopes.

My little Koala YL collected a lot of dollars too but I keep it for him hahaha...

Thanks for the greetings Mommy Clangz, I really appreciate it. Take care. going to school na pala ang mga little princess mo..time is flying too fast.

It is nice to learn other country's tradition and practice. I think Japan is the one that I learn a lot thru your blog Mommy Clang.

Nice dyan pag New Year. Saya ng mga cheketing at may pera pa sila. That is what I did with Dorothy and David's money, I opened a bank account each of them para doon mapunta pag may mag bigay ng pera sa kanila if they dont like to spend it with other things. Si David naman may income sa kanyang pet guinea pig (male and female pair), kasi yong mga anak binibinta namin and the money goes to his account.

?Thanks for the visit..

Have a nice day always. Hugs to your sweet and cute kiddies.

Naku Clang good sign sa mga bata yan marunong humawak ng pera. Ang mga anak ko naman nadala sa akin kasi yung savings nila minsan inuutang ko waaah! kaya ayaw na nilang ipahawak sa akin. :(
