Since I foresee that we won't be visiting anyone else this CNY, I tried to coax him again last Sunday (dinner at BIL's). If he doesn't wear it now, he won't be able to fit into them next year. After his bath, I tried to bribe him with Honeystars. I managed to wear and button for him but within 1 minute, he was trying to rip off the shirt again. Ok, maybe it wasn't comfortable for him. Too tight at the neck area? Never mind, no need to force him. So I changed him into normal clothes.
Then I went to take my bath. When I came down, I saw that he was in the Chinese costume. Kakak managed to wear it for him. And he was fine with it. Didn't look uncomfortable or anything. I asked her how many Honeystars she fed him with. She said none, she just bribed him but didn't give him any. Hmmm... my precious boy, so obedient to Kakak (well, sometimes he does bully her too). But hats off to her, she does have a way with kids.
XY wore her áo dài (traditional Vietnamese costume). And I managed to take a picture of them together. XY had to hold CE's hand. If not, he'd be running to me, want to kepoh and see what's in the camera.

When we went over to BIL's house, upon seeing that XY and CE were in traditional costumes, SIL tried to put on the Chinese costume for CH too. He's also refused to wear it all these while. But he allowed SIL to wear for him that night. Must be because he saw that CE was in a similar costume. Kids are such funny creatures. At 2+, he's already aware of fashion? Interesting... *scratch head* Too bad we don't celebrate Halloween here. I'm sure they'll look super cute in pirate costumes or medieval costumes.
Many hours later, CE decided he's had enough of that costume. He started to rip off his shirt again. I had no choice but to take off his shirt and pants, although we were in the living room. So he was only clad in his diaper. Guess he doesn't know the meaning of embarrassment. Had to borrow a pair of CH's pajamas. They're just 5 months apart and are almost of the same size.
Well, mission accomplished. They have both worn their traditional costumes.
