My UK Visit – Part 1 – Chi Hung’s Gift

I went up to London on 2 February, the worst day to arrive, as it faces the worst weather conditions in 20 years.

This is to see my best friend, Chi Hung. She married Martin, a British and they now have 2 beautiful children, Timothy & Rachel. I truly enjoyed their hospitality staying with them for 5 days. Apart from the Chinese New Year cookies that I brought up for Chi Hung (which she truly missed, and the children enjoyed!), I wanted to give her something really special.

They have just finished renovating their house last year, but many walls remained empty. I thought, what makes a better gift to thank them then to give them a handpainted portrait of the family? We got the photo with the family got a friend to take. So finally after 2 months of sending to my artist the portrait to be replicated, it is finally completed. I am really happy the way the artist has defined the expressions of all the members.

So for a gift that is totally unique, I suggest giving a customized painting. This will really make your receipient say “Wow”.
