If I left anyone out, please do comment here and tell me. Comments that past 24 hours mark will not be counted. Girlie, its a green envelope for hari raya. Hahahaha... Look like most people think its a greeting cards. I don't know what happen but I already try to make it easy this time. Hehehehehe...

A green envelope (Malay: sampul hijau or sampul duit raya) is the Malay adaptation of the Chinese red envelope or ang pow, where Malay Muslims in Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore hand out money in green envelopes to their guests who visit their homes during Hari Raya Aidilfitri. The money that is put in the envelope should be a crisp banknote which will supposedly bring good luck to the recipient. The idea of handing out green envelopes is based on the Islamic concept of zakat, where every Muslim is required to provide at least 2.5% of their income to the poor people.
In Malaysia, Green envelope are given to any kids below the age of 12 years old that meet and greet Selamat Hari Raya to the open house host. The amount of money depends on how much the host can afford to give their guests. The envelope nowadays come with different sizes and color (not just green color). Some parents also give their Green packet to their children for a full month of fasting to encourage them doing so. Nowadays, most green packet come with at least one ringgit note.

Happy Eid ul-Fitr to all my reader around the world who celebrate it.

Chayo-chayo....
