5th Week (11th ~ 17th Feb 2007)

According to Lo Ti Pat, Yueh Hui's fullmoon is on 11th Feb 2007. Early morning we clean her up and I perform hair cutting ceremony to trim her hair. We were debating whether to shave her hair or to just trim her hair. Chinese believe baby hair should be shaved bald on fullmoon day but modern practice has change a little bit. Since non of our parents insist to shive her, I decided to trim because maybe the tiny little hair can keep her head warm. By afternoon we went
to my Parents home at Jln Ipoh for praying ceremony. This is the first time we went back together to my parents' house. My mom is very happy and she set-up the praying table and we 'bai bai' together.
All my family members turn-out for our celebration dinner at home. Yit Ling's 2nd brother also joint us. Unfornutely, the baby is too busy sleeping, she did not came out from her room until later that night.We went back to SS2 after all the makan makan.
On 14th Feb, I collected fullmoon gift package from Uniq Food Trading at Puchong. I distributed 23 packages to APM AC and 17 packages to Unisys then 25 packages to APM AE. Of course, I delivered my family members.
It cost me almost RM1K for the above gift boxes. This Chinese traditional practice to return favour to those who sent gift to the baby. The most important item is the red eggs. Chinese used to ask a newly wed couple when to present 'red eggs'. That means new baby born.We went back to our home in Puchong together for the first time on 23rd Feb, one day before Chinese New Year's Eve.
