Red Eggs

Rayyan will be turning 4yo this coming Wednesday i.e. 24 October 2012.

We decided to celebrate his birthday in advance which was yesterday. I will definitely share bout his birthday in my next entry.

As for today, will just rant about red eggs.



Since I was a kid, my mom used to prepare red eggs in all of our birthday celebration even tho it was only 2-3 eggs and I never really ask why but I know it is something to do with the Chinese culture inherit from our ancestors.

Yesterday, Tunung's hubby (asal Semenanjung) was kinda surprise to see red eggs on the table and I bet , unlike Sabahan, most of the Malays here are not aware of red eggs.

Red eggs Symbolize birth or a new start, prosperity and good fortune.
