In a bowl, combine the chicken, ham, scallions, celery, bamboo shoots, soy sauce, garlic clove, and ginger. Working with 1 wonton wrapper at a time, place 2 teaspoons filling in the center, gather up the corners and pinch together to form a pouch, leaving a frill at the top. Cut 20 chives in half and place in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water for 1 minute; rinse and drain. Deep fry the money bags in hot oil for 4-5 minutes until crispy and golden; drain on paper towels. Tie a chive around each money bag. Serve immediately.
