ID: CA0015 Dear Amber
On this week's Dear Amber we talk about the Chinese opinions of beauty, and as Chinese New Year approaches, we learn about a very particular Chinese custom you will see in almost every household. And we answer a question about what exactly an "Ayi" is, and why you should have Ayi-envy if you aren't so privileged to have one! Enjoy, and please leave us your comments too!
