yeaR of birth
My mum was the one that was good at hoarding. My mum had a white wedding and she also got married in a cheongsam (traditional dress), I still got it. She was terrible for hoarding anything cute or miniature. She would go into Chinese shops and buy those little scented fans and we still got them. All of that. She was all into all that. You know, the little Chinese jackets, she had reversible ones, then she had these really beautiful ones that were really fancy and thin with rabbit fur.
I got a reversible one that was hers and a little one was mine as a child, that's why I still got mine. I use to wear them in Hong Kong and in the UK. My mum made us wear it here to keep warm around the house. It's in good condition, for years it was sealed. It hung there for a long time. I tried to get my son to wear it and then he stopped.
She had so many Chinese jackets but in various forms. I think we probably got about six left while others got old and trashed. You can't chuck them because she's died, now you can't throw them away.
