It is part of the Chinese Tradition here in Malaysia to celebrate a baby's first full moon when she turns 1 month old. This coincides with the end of the new mum's confinement period, and both mother and baby are formally introduced to the extended family and friends for the first time.
Think of it as an Asian baby shower.
I was going through a parenting site through Yahoo! and compiled a list of 4 things NOT to get as gifts for the Full Moon party.
1. Cardboard Customized Baby Cot
If you wanted your friend's kid to sleep in cardboard, why not just BUY cardboard?
If anyone gave me this I'd honestly be insulted. Like "what you think I beggar ah??!"
This is going for $250 on ebay btw
2.Sperm Pins and Earrings
"wow isn't that a unique piece of jewelery!"
"why thank you"
"what is is actually??"
"oh nothing much, JUST MY HUSBAND'S SPERM"
Just to look at a sonogram in it's actual size, you'd have to squint here and there to make up what's where. But to minimize it's size 10 times smaller and turn it into a cuff link??
Imagine dad going
"I'm so proud of my baby, I wear her Everywhere!"
oh.. and my favorite
think DAD + SADDLE.
all you need to do is to strap it on dad! and he becomes a horse!
freggin out of this world
enjoy your day
