Send best wishes to your family and friends

Customise your red packet

Choose from different red packet designs and greetings, or write your own unique message. Nothing can replace a personal touch after all.

Lucky money, lucky number

The Laisee is known to hold 'lucky money', so why not take it a step further? Make sure you pick a lucky number as the amount for the Laisee you give out. Fresh notes sound great, but nothing beats sending and receiving HKD88, HKD888 or HKD8,888! 

Say 'gong hei fat choi' no matter where you are

Whether you're near or far, you can tell your loved ones that you're thinking of them this Lunar New Year. Let them know you've sent them a Laisee with a beautifully designed greeting via your preferred messaging channel!

And if you're registered for FPS, your family, friends and colleagues will be able to send you Laisee too. So check out our Quick Start guide and register today to enjoy their festive greetings!
