黄凯源

Your Chinese name is 黄凯源 which was obtained with the help of your maternal Grandma who consulted a Chinese astrologist.


You are a Jedi, like your father before you

According to Aunty Jancy, it means source of victory. Mum and Dad felt it complements the meaning of your English name and went for it. It isn’t the most unique of Chinese name but it’s good enough for you.

Dad’s simplistic Chinese name, 黄有强 (given by your paternal Great Grandma), has offered much comedic value throughout his life at his expense (though he has been tempted a few times to brand 强 on his left deltoid), so he hopes your name won’t cause you much grief.

Your full name on your birth cert is Kaelen Sean Wong Hoi Yuen (it may be a hassle when you fill up forms in future), as Dad’s dialect is Cantonese, though he can’t speak it to save his life.

Coincidentally, Hoi Yuen Road is a street in Kwun Tong, Hong Kong, Dad’s favourite shopping destination, that is lined with cool factory outlets, such as Camelpaint building. Dad and Mum visited this street in May 2009, having booked the trip before we learnt you were conceived.

Dad looks forward to bringing you to Hong Kong, and it will most likely be when you’re in your late teens, when you’ll be able to appreciate cool kicks, sportswear and action figures. It’ll be just like the times when Dad brought his kid brother, your Uncle Eugene round hunting for comics in Singapore.

Dad hopes to show you the following places…

Maybe we can fit in a bus ride or two. 🙂

Hopefully, Aunty Kyn will have purchased her own property by then and we’ll also be able to meet up with Uncle Henry, who is one of the coolest friends Dad has made online.

Mum might be slightly less thrilled about revisiting HK though, as the morning sickness you caused her during our last trip there wasn’t the best of experiences.
