可爱的女儿

Turning nine is a big deal.

Especially for an eight-year-old.

And with 9 being an auspicious number in the numerology within the Chinese culture, it’s an important year for this bright, intelligent, inquisitive, caring and beautiful girl.

Historically a number with strong ties to imperial rule, “nine” can be found in many aspects of life in the Beijing capital – from the height of the three major halls in the Forbidden City (9 Zhang 丈and 9 Chi 尺) to the nine rings of stones set in multiples of nine at the Temple of Heaven’s Circular Mound Altar.
