"Yan yuen"

Mrs Wong told us that aside from praying for a happy, healthy and smart child, we need to pray that this child will have good "yan yuen". "Yan yuen" in Cantonese means have a good relation with people. She thinks it is very important for a person to be able to build good relationship naturally. She cited one 5 year old kid at her school - he came from a poor family - therefore this child is very dirty, dressed shambily, dark skinned, skinny and not good looking or cute.. and yet, despite all these, he's the favourite among all the teachers. It cannot be explained, this "yan yuen".. so it's very important we pray for our child to have this trait too.
