Brothers and sisters make us happy and sometimes, sad. Often, they amuse us with their jokes, and other times, they annoy us. Above all, we love our siblings. Life wouldn’t be complete without them.
Recently, Starchild asked readers to send in letters on the topic, Siblings Day. Here’s what they had to say.
“My younger sibling Ying Tong is a cheerful and loving girl. We are like two peas in a pod. Sometimes we quarrel but in the end, we always forgive each other. I love Ying Tong very much,” says Low Ying Xi, nine.
Younger sibling Low Ying Tong, seven, writes: “My brother is very playful. We sometimes fight, but not every day. My brother loves to play the video game, Minecraft. I am blessed to have an older brother like Ying Xi.”
Cieyena Chan Pui Xin, nine, thinks her two brothers are cute and loving. “Darion loves to play and watch cartoons on TV. Damian enjoys sports activities like football and basketball.”
Jayden Tan Li Sheng, eight, thinks the world of his sisters, Julia and Jodie. His elder siblings are always around to help him with homework and take care of him when his parents are at work. “We always share our toys, play games and do activities together. Every evening, my sisters and I will go for a walk to a playground around our neighbourhood. I feel blessed to have them as my sisters.”
Jodie Tan Li Juen, 11, writes: “My siblings are my best friends. We are always very supportive of each other from doing house chores, school revision or cheering each other up. We often share fun stories with each other during mealtime.”
Six year old Bethany Wang Qi Syuen enjoys doing fun things with her younger brother Asher. “He likes to follow me wherever I go. Although we sometimes have disagreements, I really love having him as my brother and buddy.”
Sibling Asher Wang Qi Chuen, three, says: “I love my sister very much. She is willing to watch garbage truck videos with me. She also plays with my dinosaur toys and construction vehicles toys with me even though they are not her favourite activities. She is very special to me.”
Peheljot Kaur Sidhu, five, writes: “I have a younger brother who loves to copy whatever i do and take my toys. He has curly hair and mine is straight and long. He turns three this year and he loves monster trucks.” - Compiled by Sheela Chandran
