The first time daddy teach Sarah about the CNY greeting “Gong Xi Fa Cai”, she was kind of confuse and even show refusal; she has no idea about the words.
To make her feel more comfortable and easier to remember, I explained about the “usefulness” of this greeting phrase to her.
I told her that whenever she greets people with “Gong Xi Fa Cai”, she will get an Ang Pao; and I also showed her what’s inside the Ang Pao. She’s aware that she could use the money to buy things she likes…
The tricks worked! Now, she fall in love with the phrase so much and she like to say it loud and clear!
