Starchild: Malaysian children think the world of their siblings

Jodie Tan Li Juen, 11

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.”

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.”
