24 Jan 2012 – Second CNY day…
Today’s visit brought back much memories from the 1950s. Good to see Ken who is visiting from London. Auntie Kwok made the best butter cookies and they were thin enough to practically melt in your mouth. Have not tasted anything like her butter cookies since.
She is now 97yrs and doubtfully even remember that she was once my mother’s closest friend. Our families + the Leungs would meet up every weekend back then!
Kenson & Peggy are the childhood friends from the 1950s and today we try to meet up annually to somewhere that none of us have been. Kenson is also May’s godfather! Now that say something for friends for over half a century 🙂
Auntie Kwok is the only one still alive from the 3 families of her generation. Uncle Vincent & family immigrated to Australia in the mid 1960s. Uncle Vincent, auntie June and my parents are long gone. Kenson’s father and my mother left us in the early and mid 1960s.
Pix postings are from the 1950s and 60s, except the coloured one of auntie Kwok with Kenson.
A double rainbow was sighted a few days ago and in Chinese culture, a double rainbow is considered auspicious and a reason for reflection and meditation… !!
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest – Confucius
