This year, the gift was partially bought and handmade. I ordered the cut-outs for the boxes which were folded by my Mum, sis, bro and Lu Kenn. I bought 500 pieces of batik-printed paper cranes which were folded in the origami style. On the cover of each box, I stamped a picture of 2 hearts, and stuck 3 stars. Inside the cover, the message reads:
Taste and see that the
LORD is good;
Mercy, peace and love
be yours in abundance.
Blessed Christmas &
Happy New Year
Seng Chor, Christine & Jordan.
2 sweets – Taste and see that the LORD is good;
3 cranes (1 big and 2 smaller ones) – Representing Mercy, peace and love. The biggest crane represents love.
The cranes represent goodwill in the Chinese custom.
I pray that each one of you will be blessed by this gift.
Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year 2007 to all!
