Chinese Full Moon Custom

Published by under Parenting Joy

Normally the Chinese celebrate grandly when the baby in the family reaches 1 month after birth. This day also mark the end of the mother’s confinement period and finally free to allow out of the house. On the baby’s full month, some families host a dinner to entertain friends and relatives. Red hard-boiled eggs is usually distributed.

An odd number of eggs will be distributed if it’s a boy and even number of eggs if it is a girl. Friends and relatives usually give red packet in return, some also give jewelries and modern ones give hamper (it’s like baby shower)

The Chinese also practice the custom of shaving off the baby’s hair on its full month. The baby’s hair is wrapped up in a red cloth and sewn to the baby’s pillow. It seems that by doing this, the baby would not be timid or easily frightened. Nowadays, some of the traditional customs are still being practiced either in whole or in part by modern parents. The practice of distributing Full Moon Gift Pack is seen as a more convenience way to announce the arrival of a newborn in the family and also to thanks the relatives and friends for their gifts.

In a Full Moon Gift Pack, it usually consists of curry chicken, turmeric glutinous rice , pickled ginger, red eggs and Nyonya Ang Koo. The Ang Koo Kuih came in two special designs, if it’s a peach, it represent girl if it’s round then it represent a boy.

However the modern revised version of gift pack can only consist of some cakes , pastries and even roast chicken and red eggs but without the turmeric rice and curry chicken. All the pastry shops not from King’s Confectionery to Baker’s Cottage to even Ayamas has these packages now. However I remember SIL bringing back this nice little gift box after attending Melinda Looi’s son full moon, it’s something modern than what we normally seen in a Full Moon Gift Pack. I think I will consider that this time round, it’s from One Joy if I’m not mistaken.

During JS’s full moon, we did it quite grandly at PIL’s house where we have special food catering and invited friends and relatives over. It was too much a hassle and too much noice. For WH, I just ordered boxes of the conventional gift pack to distribute. Can’t remember where I ordered that from, maybe from Puchong. Besides that the family had quite dinner at Hilton. Just my in-laws and my parents. This time round, I guess I will do the same by distributing the gift packs and have quite family dinner.

Toddler’s Laughter

Published by under Parenting Joy

A toddler’s laughter is so real and unpretentious. Any little unintentional movement or action can make a toddler laughs and they find it very funny. They can laugh at their own little antics. It’s such a carefree world

Whenever WH started laughing and giggling around me, it’s so heart warming. The air is filled with so much joy, cheers and happiness and for once I can forgo my worries. A toddler’s laughter is so infectious that one can hardly find in a pre-schooler. This is one great reward of motherhood. I love to be surrounded my WH’s laughters.
