So Chinese New Year is finally here already. Which means… it’s the month of February already. Isn’t it unbelievable how we have already zoom on to the second month. Was really looking forward for this as its that time of the year where you meet up your Aunties, uncles and cousins. A time for a little catch up which really didn’t hurt anyone.
One thing we started was doing the old chinese tea serving ceremony for the nephews to learn. Something which I used to do when I was a kid growing up in my family.
传统 means “Tradition”
We try so hard to instruct our children in all the right things – teaching good from bad, explaining choices and consequences ― when in reality most lessons are learned through observation and experience. Perhaps we’d be better off training our youth to be highly observant. It is a great way of “teaching values” to the kids to learn and perhaps in the future when they have their own family, they will take up the tradition and it lives on.
I pray that they do this one day….
If I ever get married, I would like to have a wife like my brother. Their marriage is such a beautiful blessing. In life, we come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly. It’s an amazing journey witnessing their marriage and how they work things out with one another. You just can see the love from one another.
Heading down to melaka to spend time with Dad was a great one. We had an awesome dinner and great catchup with him.
Can you imagine us doing a funny face with my dad. Yeap… We actually did it. LOL!
I shall end this post here. More updates soon. A lot of exciting things happening in the month of March, the birthday month.
