Li Chun (lap Chun) 2023: When is the best time to deposit your money and how to avoid the queue? All you need to know!
Li Chun begins on February 4, 2023
Li Chun 立春 2023, known as “The Beginning of Spring”, falls on February 4th this year.
During Li Chun 立春, each Chinese zodiac sign is assigned a few auspicious times throughout the day.
The prevailing belief in Singapore is that by depositing funds into your bank account during these auspicious times (if you are aligned with your Chinese zodiac sign), you will enjoy happiness and stable income for the rest of the year.
Every year we have a culture of queuing at ATMs to deposit money on Li Chun, all for good luck.
This is the best time to deposit money this year!
The most favourable times to deposit funds are on February 4th, 2023 from 9:00 to 11:00 and from 11:00 to 13:00 for all zodiac signs except Tiger, Rabbit, Goat and Pig.
Likewise, unfavourable times are to be avoided on February 4th and 5th, 2023:
4 February: 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. (period “You”)
February 4: 9:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. (“Hai” period)
5 February: 23:00 – 01:00 (Zi period)
5 Feb: 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. (“Chen” period)

Hacks to avoid the queue of this Li Chun
With advances in technology, there are definitely ways we can bypass the process and create fewer queues.
Improving the current Li Chun process with e-wallets
Our current process includes:
Queuing at the ATM
Withdraw money from our physical wallet
Deposit money into the bank accounts
However, this process leads to long queues at the cash deposit machines and loss of time when queuing:

While we know Singaporeans queue for EVERYTHING, we know not everyone can stand in line for hours just to deposit money.
You can put some money into your digital wallets like Paynow, DBS PayLah! or OCBC Pay Anybody instead of heading to the ATM.
And to make the most of this opportunity, don’t forget to put your money in a savings account that pays you the highest interest rates.
