If you can get new $100 notes from your banks for the Lunar New Year this year, consider yourself lucky.
A spokesman for the Monetary Authority of Singapore's Currency Department told me this morning that the $100 is not a LNY issue. Only $2, $5, $10 and some $50 are.
So, if you were to ask your bank for $100 notes -- like I did -- you will be told that they have only recirculated notes. MAS says that it will only issue new $100 notes when there is a shortage of such notes.
I guess not many people put $100 notes in their ang pows. Anyway, two $50 will do the trick.
