胎毛笔

10 AUGUST 2010, TUESDAY

Finally Mommy received the 胎毛笔 from Uncle YS after waited for 2 years, 2 months, 3 weeks and 3 days. Kit boy had his first hair cut on 18 May 2008, just a day before Kit boy turns two months old and since then, Mommy started to source for companies that manufacture 胎毛笔. With the help from 小姑姐, we found 北京京华毛笔厂 and immediately Mommy emailed the particulars of this company which located in Beijing, China to Mommy's stepbrother, Uncle YS who is working in Beijing at that point of time.

Shortly after that, Mommy received a good news from Uncle YS that actually this company is situated quite near to his working place and he has got no problem to get it done for me. Mommy was so happy smiling from ear to ear and really can't wait to hand over those precious hair of little Kit boy to him during his next trip back to Malaysia.

I would like to say that 胎毛笔 is not that popular in Malaysia as compared to China and Taiwan. Therefore, not many companies are doing this in Malaysia and the only company that Mommy came across is the one that located in Johor.


胎毛是宝宝第一次的毛发,是人体唯一从母体带出并可永久保存的部分。用胎毛制笔是最传统的宝宝纪念品之一,历史源远流长,制笔工艺成熟。每支胎毛笔都要经过七十多道传统手工工艺精心制作而成,不仅造型美观而且易于书写。 (www.jhbaobao.com)


There are actually many different types and designs of 毛笔 but the one that Uncle YS selected for us is very unique with Kit boy's name and date of birth being engraved on it. Besides, it also came together with a laminated Certificate.



We met up with Uncle YS last Saturday and collected the 胎毛笔 from him. Uncle YS refused to tell Mommy how much is the 胎毛笔 and insisted to give it to Kit boy as a gift. So, I actually have got no idea how much is a custom made 胎毛笔 cost but is definitely not cheap despite it is in RMB.

Note to Uncle YS: Thank you very much, not only for the 胎毛笔 but also for all your effort to get it done. This would be Kit boy's most valuable gift.
