The meeting of the 4 generation ended yesterday. Mischievous Elkan bid farewell to his grandmother and great-grandmother. It was quite an amazing "life lesson" for him when Auntie Amy showed him the bloodline. It is like a brand new discovery for him to see his daddy’s mum’s mum. And when Elkan found out that his favourite Grand Auntie Amy is the mother
of his fearsome and scary Uncle Chester, he gave us that priceless exclamation "What? You mean you are Uncle Chester’s mum?" (Chester, you should see that expression! It is hilarious!)
Mum got Felicia and I to plan a surprise birthday celebration for Auntie Amy. We decided to do that on their last day in Hong Kong. When the waiter brought in the cake, Elkan ran up to Auntie Amy and forced a hard kiss on her cheek! It was such a spontaneous act! He took Auntie Amy by surprise!
As it was still early, we brought the folks to do last-minute shopping at the Wanchai market and Causeway Bay.
When it was to say goodbye, there wasn’t any sadness or tears. Guess Elkan and his grannies know he is going back to Singapore soon. (And no one to nag about my obesity anymore!) We
have been prepping him about his school graduation and his returning
trip to Singapore. Elkan has enjoyed 3 excellent years outside
Singapore. It is time for him to head home to adjust the dynamic education footprint. And time to spend blissful time with his doting aunties and uncles back home.
