Coming from Singapore, where we don’t have the four seasons, we didn’t know that Easter actually marks the beginning of Spring. We never knew the significance of Easter (and the bunnies) to non-Christians and never immersed ourselves in the whole Easter festivities, besides attending church and celebrating the resurrection of Christ.
Back in Singapore, Mama didn’t like us playing with playdoh. She says we make too much mess and we love mixing all the colours together. See2 was also at the “putting everything into his mouth” age, and it was easier to forbid both of us from playing rather than letting See1 play in secret.
When Mama broke the news of our move to the US, she said that we will be moving to the land of Playdohs and Legos. We couldn’t be more excited. In fact, we asked for the Playdoh set we brought from Singapore, within days of arriving.
