My Name in Chinese



The envelope sent by Chi (Taiwan) contained red envelopes. In the Chinese New Year, adults give them to children with money inside. I received them filled with some New Year's items:
-a little piece of money that will give me a good begin of the year;
-an amazing stamp: it is a year of dragon (sorry, I put it upside down!);
-and the two syllables of my name in Chinese, from an old printing house.



Now I can write my name in Chinese!
