We don’t really get to celebrate Chinese New Year here in Canada but this year – we were not only invited for a get together with some chinese kids and their families, Chloe also received a ang pow mailed all the way from Singapore. Of course – we all know who it is from – it’s from her Kai Mah ! Chloe’s Kai Mah is really , really thoughtful and you will see why below.
Chloe was very excited and cannot wait to show off her ang pow to everyone – it was already night time by the time we brought it home because it was a registered mail.
Not only was there money in it – they were “new” money – something I haven’t seen nor practice for the longest time since arriving here in Canada. As much as I would love to keep tradition going for Chloe – it is sometimes hard to do so – because I can’t even find an ang pow without getting it from the city. But we do try and it is people like her Kai Mah from Singapore that helps with teaching Chloe the culture I grew up in – afterall, she is half Chinese eh.
