Spread virtual blessings through eAng Pow

Recognizing that many families may remain apart during this CNY season of reunion, Boost is bringing back its popular eAng Pow feature to make sure this all-important CNY tradition lives on. With eAng Pow, users can spread good luck and blessings to loved ones situated anywhere in the country.

Users can choose from vibrant eAng Pow packet designs with the option to include a personalized greeting to their friends and family. Festive seasons are also a time of giving back to communities in-need. Users can opt to channel their eAngPows as eDonations to a list of NGOs and charities found in the Boost app to care for and uplift those who face hardships in rebuilding their livelihood after a challenging 2021.

“CNY celebrations are a time to reconnect and rebuild with resilience in the new year. We all know the festivities are just not complete without an Ang Pow and for those living apart from friends and family during this time, we hope our eAng Pow feature can virtually help you continue to share abundance for a better year ahead,” added Abeykoon.

While everyone will be busy preparing for CNY, Boost would also like to remind all Malaysians to continue practicing social distancing and go cashless for a safer and more secure shopping experience while we battle the COVID-19 threat together.

With these incredible deals and rewards starting from the 8th of Jan, users can shop safely from the comfort of their homes for all their Chinese New Year needs. There will be more deals and offers coming up throughout the CNY period so stay tuned on our social pages on Facebook ( and Instagram (
