lion dance to usher the year of the "golden pig"

read mom2ashley blog on the lion dance and wanna jot down that erika is terrified of the “dong dong dong chang” and of cos the lively dancing lion. she will be crying loudly and hugging daddy for dear life…and poor daddy gotta carry her away…as far as possible until she feels the distance is safe enough, then she stops wailing. not very good “yee see” (sign) la to see a child cry during chinese new year celebration…so we try our best to prepare her before a performance and cart her away when the tears start falling.

funnily she loves to watch lion dance on tv, or see pictures of them in magazines…its just the real thing is just way too much for her heart…especially the catchy beat of the drums. who can forget that pulsating beat?

hopefully she will outgrow this fear by next chinese new year.

ellisa on the other is not afraid…well at this moment she has no fear also la of most things. she can even point out pictures of lion dance and say “lye dan”.

ellisa ~ even my “lat lat” (spicy) ploy to stop her from eating some forbidden food also does not scare her…she will still try the food…and if really “lat lat” then she will “pui” (spit) out in a most un-girly fashion…and ask for “waaader…waaader”.

when i was a kid, i was also afraid of the lion dance! the combination of the music and the big huge lion scared me! luckily ashley didnt cry or anything..she was very curious and at the same time scared of it all!

I think most young kids are afraid of that loud drum sound. I am sure she will outgrow it by next NY. :)
