Same here. Tried to get my China friends to send me Ang bao a couple of times to see if can activate my WeChat wallet but without success.

I am wondering what went wrong
Once you click the Ang Bao, what is the prompt?

Supposedly based on my recent experience (Dec 2018), you will be asked to carry out 实名认证 real name verification, then add your SG credit card, you should be able to activate the wallet this way. Then you will be prompted again to add a mainland China bank card which I assume you do not have. So just skip this step.

Most likely you will still not be able to receive the Ang Bao. But then you can try to top up using 二维码收款 or third party top up service.
