我愛你, momma yin.

a while back, i asked momma yin to start writing her emails to me in chinese [with accompanying english] so i could in some small way start improving my chinese skillz. she obliged and recently sent me this email for my birthday:

 

Dear Maymay : 

Today ( 今天 ) is  ( 是 ) your  ( 你的 ) birthday  ( 生日 ) ,
 
I ( 我 ) can’t ( 不敢 ) believe ( 相信 ) you  ( 你 ) are already  ( 己經 ) 26 ( 二十六歲 ) !
 
You ( 你 ) was born ( 出生時 )  only ( 只有 ) four pounds ( 四磅 ) !
 
Happy ( 快樂 ) Birthday ( 生日 ) !=生日快樂!
 
Love
Mom
 
 
i dont know why, but it made me smile. plus, i could read most of the characters! [well, with help from the accompanying english. but still. success!] it’s the small things.
