Xin nian kuai le, Jing Jing. Today is chuyi, which means the first day of the lunar new year. The year of the Ox-picous Ox has arrived and it is gonna be your year – the year you’ll be born in! Aren’t you excited?
We did a lot of visiting today. My mother, your grandmother has come to stay with us, so you would have met her. Daddy also brought me to visit his parents, your grandparents, your future grandaunts and uncles. We’ve been giving lots of ang pows these past 4 years, next year, we’ll be able to get some back, thanks to you. There’ll be lots of people who love you very much and wanna give you ang pows.
The next day, people came to visit our house. You would have met daddy’s secondary school friends, your uncle larry and dawn, uncle jonathan, sabine plus charlotte and lenny. Our neighbours, Ivan and Clara, also dropped in with Carine. Their number 2 is on the way, so soon, you’ll have your first playmate. It’ll be nice to have someone of your own age to play with right?
