To be real honest the idea of being a Dad one day was never in my list of goals in life. Not that i don’t fancy children but more like i feel i’m just not ready to be one yet. I am what many describe me as… A kid in a 38 year old man body.

A thought came to my mind recently when i was about to sleep. Normally i will try my best to stay awake until my wife and baby son fall asleep. Just in case my wife need my help with that little monster.  Oh anyway that thought…

I was  thinking why most Chinese people believe they are actually one year older than what is stated in their identification card. Example if i’m supposedly 29 this year, i will go around telling people i’m actually 30. And 10 minutes of wondering why… i finally got the answer…

Our age is normally calculated from the date of our birth. However we had forgotten the fact that we are actually alive and growing since our mom is conceived with us in their womb.  And the Chinese take that period into consideration.

Make sense…?
