The Twinkie Times

The life and times of a Chinese American. Born a Jersey boy, lived the expat life, attended boarding school (Lawrenceville), converted to a frat boy (Sigma Pi), got an MBA (Columbia), returned to China, and back to the East Coast now trying to carve out an identity and life as an Asian American dad (gulp) in the midst of a "tertial life crisis" ©

Merry TwiXmas

As we bust out our Santa hats, flip-flops, and shorts for this unseasonably warm Christmas Eve on the East Coast, we wanted to wish all of our friends and family a Happy Holidays and a healthy and successful New Year.  2015 has been nothing short of life-changing for us, oftentimes indescribable the mixed emotions of joy, exhaustion, love, despair, and hope.

We have the utmost respect for all parents now so as we prepare to ring in 2016, we wanted to say a big thank you to Mama Su, Mama Lau, Papa Lau, and all the generations before us for raising us and paving the way for us in our journey from adulthood into parenthood.

Please enjoy this short 2-minute video and fun holiday message:

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through Casa del Twin,
Not a creature was stirring, not even Calvin

The stockings were hung by the fireplace with care,
In hopes that the babies would not wake with a scare

The boys were snuggled in cribs each in their room,
Lucky us, let the Walking Dead binge-watch resume

When from the baby monitor there arose such a clatter,
The parents sprang from the bed to see what’s the matter

Peter was awake, such a happy little guy,
Toothless grin and round face like a Smiley Fry

Noah was sitting up, all giggles galore,
Laughing even when Calvin has a midnight accident on the floor

The boys had now learned how to stand,

But they were too scared to fall down and land

A bit of soothing & shooshing then cry it out:  just let them
Anyways our day would soon start at 4:30 A.M

Oh, the babies first Christmas, what a lovely sight
Happy holidays to all and to all a good night!
