and presents. DD has been invited to a classmates sister's full moon baby party. I am clueless about whether she should take a present and if she should, is it for the baby or the Mum? Fortunatley there is a lot of red envelope stuff around because of CNY. Help.
Its a bit like a christening, a red paquet is fine but am sure a cute present for the baby would be much appreciated. Basically mother comes out of confinement and the baby is presented to the world. Dont feed DD before she goes. Its usually a banquet.

Have just asked my colleagues at work (in Singapore). Red packet is the norm or vouchers if there is a suitable department type store. There will be lots of food. I've never been to a party but have received lots of boxes full of cakes/red eggs from my colleagues celebrating full moon.
Thanks for that. No suitable shop really, the family are super rich so vouchers would be discarded I think, and I base that solely on DDs comments when the girl in question won an iPad. Could you ask your colleague whether there is a color that DD should not wear to the party? I am thinking white for some reason.
Laptop yes next week arriving Wednesday evening till Sunday. Although dh just thrown spanner in works to say his boss now not so keen on releasing him. Arggh. This is doing my head in! (Sorry for hi-jack Rips).
Well, we went and bought the baby, who has the most peculiarly non chinese name a baby grow. DD chose it, it's darkish blue with a brilliantly bright cupcake on the front. She is currently making a tag for the expensive ladybird paper bag thing we bought to put the baby grow in. <peace>
