When we were living in Shanghai I used to ask my daughter (7 years old then) to write in Chinese character for some random things around the house, I was fascinated on how fast she get a hang of it, she was reading & singing fluently in Mandarin too! So when Charlene asked me to draw these 2 characters holding the hong bao (red envelope) with the Chinese character on the pull apart cupcakes cake I was thrilled, it feels somewhat familiar and I know I can pull it off.

Below is the email that I received from her in the evening :
