RECEIVED this just now. It’s a note from one of my favourite singers, Stefanie Sun, who gave birth last week to healthy baby boy.
Now, if my translation skills are what they used to be (and I do hope they’re not, because I was horrible at translations when I was younger… and when I say “younger” I mean “yesterday”) Stefanie said she wanted to sincerely thank all her friends for their support, and that she and her baby are doing well.
“From the moment the baby was born, I’ve been really, really busy doing what I need to do. Although it’s been non-stop, the important thing is that he’s sleeping well and drinking well. It feels really wonderful.
“People have wanted to know about Baby Xiangshui … but his temperament is a bit like me … and he has thick hair like my husband … ha ha!
“We received a lot of gifts and blessings, and my heart is overflowing. Please forgive me if I have been temporarily unable to thank you (it’s really busy being a mother!). But I sincerely thank you all.
“I will continue to work hard, waiting for me to come back!”
And here’s a picture of the mum and her newborn. Well, kinda.
And yes, isn’t it remarkable how babies come into this world with perfectly manicured digits?
