The other thing about CNY..

Posted by daddy leon On January - 29 - 2009

is about wearing new clothes! 

I bought this shirt. It has CNY spelt all over it. (although mummy thinks it looks like table cloth).

This top was a pressie from Aunt Peifen. Thanks!

To me, the best part of the Chinese New Year Holidays is that we get to “reunite’” with many of our relatives and friends and enjoy a good time of fellowship over sumptuous food. 

Nathaniel also got to enjoy good fellowship with his cousins and his friends albeit overwhelmed by the attention he attracted sometimes.  It was interesting to see Nathaniel warm up to his uncles and aunties, allowing them to carry him away under the disguise of the words “gai gai”.  What’s more interesting is how he reacts to his cousins and friends.  He would watch intently as they played, and in his own nonchalant way, he would blend into the fun.  Sometimes we caught him staring at an older ‘gor gor’ with admiration, his expression read:

“Wow! I want to do that next time when I grow up!”

We also wanted to see if Nathaniel would share his toys when he had friends over.  To our delight, he was most willing to.  Not a hint of selfishness as he displayed the qualities of a gracious host.  Well done Nathaniel!

The best part is there are 15 days to this celebration and more reunion dinners to come!

We should have a Chinese New Year type holiday every month!

What’s in a Name

Posted by daddy leon On January - 20 - 2009

My dad named my son 张宇轩.  Yvonne and myself had no clue what it meant but it sure sounded good.

My dad lovingly put this together for Nathaniel.



and further explained:

神态器宇不凡, 指 气宇轩昂, 英姿焕发 ,
一身正气, 光明磊落, 堂堂正正, 乃基督所怜爱的

心胸宽阔明亮, 性格直率豁朗, 是吾主所恩赐的

I love the fact that its so Christ centred. :D Thanks dad, its precisely what we hope in Nathaniel.
