Grand Nephew's full month party

We had a small party to celebrate grand nephew's full month. According to chinese custom, when baby is one month old, a party will be held to introduce baby to relatives and friends.

Guests were given red dyed eggs to symbolize happiness and the renewal of life. For the chinese culture, Red is always associated with good luck.

Guests will give presents or money in red packets (ang pow or hong bao), closer family members will give golds as gifts. Hubby and me being granduncle and grandaunt, we bought a small gold chain and a pendant, with the high price of gold, it really costs us a fortune lol. But the happiness the baby bought, it is really worth it.
