A Ten Dollar Note
This ten dollar note was able to buy my family lots of groceries and meat for a week!
I still remember it was very thrilling if my mother had two pieces of this note in her purse. And folks would always marvel whenever some timber guys had a stack of ten dollar notes banded by a rubber band.
One red note would always be a great angpow to receive and also to give to some one in need.
Very often a ten dollar note would go a long long way to help a needy student when many would never have seen a ten dollar note at all.
So a red note is always something very treasured and something which can stir up a lot of beautiful memories.......a beautiful thing on my mind.....is it the same for you?
