Norah Diary: Home is where love stays
Nice to meet you all! I’m Norah. MydaddyPaul is fromNew Zealandand my mommy Rena is a Nanjing native. I was born in Nanjing, and will soon have my two years' birthday.
I’m the outcome of an international romance
Mommy met daddy whenshewas studying in New Zealand. They fell in love and got married in 2011. Then they lived in Japan for a while but eventually decided to come back to China.
Daddy has long been used to Chinese food. Mommy likes to have the spicy Sichuan food, which daddy loves and hates at the same time. Daddy told me that granny would feel strange that we always have Chinese food here, because they have dishes of different countries in New Zealand, today curry and tomorrow Thai food, then another cuisine the day after.
I may have two coffee shops
Daddy and mommy have a dream of opening a café here. Daddy is very good at making New Zealand hamburgers and mommy is an expert on latte art. They opened the first MOTU café at Laodongmen of Nanjing in 2014 and the second one in Xianlin this year.
Daddy often tells others, "We've met many friends and have a deeper understanding of the cultural customs and working environment here. We like Nanjing and China very much."
I’m going to New Zealand
My parents are so busy with their career and taking care of me that they haven't been to New Zealand for two years. Granny and grandpa came to China once this year, and we often have video chat. We plan to go back toNew Zealandin April this year, to see the place where daddy grew up and also visit my grandparents.
I have no idea about multi-cultural family. As long as I'm with mommy anddaddy, I am happy. Home is just where loves stays!
You must wonder how I can write so many characters. Indeed I can not, but I have my little secret. Just a hug to the pretty journalist, andshetook care of therest!
