Our young, kind-hearted but poor orphan Laibao 來寶, who wished with all his soul to marry the lovely Peach Blossom 桃花姑娘

This is the young, kind-hearted but poor orphan Laibao 來寶, who wished with all his soul to marry the lovely Peach Blossom 桃花姑娘. Peach Blossom’s daddy demanded that Laibao brings him 3 unusual treasures, in order to allow Laibao to marry his daughter. Here is Laibao, in his best travelling suit and get-up, on his journey West to the Kunlun Mountains to ask the Western Queen Mother 西王母 Goddess to help him succeed in his quests.

Laibao made a make-shift sun umbrella tent over his head. He brought his water ladle with him so he could scoop fresh water from the springs to drink. In his excitement to get to Kunlun mountain in the shortest time possible, he hung his snack where he could eat without having to waste any time taking breaks! Young people can be so impatient sometimes!

Don’t Forget to Make a Baozi Snack for Laibao! A Calorie-Free Tutorial

Here is a calorie free snack your kiddos will love to make! Using Crayola Model magic, you can make a Char Siu Bao 叉燒包, or baozi for Laibao as he sets off in a hurry on this journey to the Kunlun Mountains in search of Xi Wangmu (Western Queen Mother).

When the baozi is dried, you should take a bite off it, so it looks like Laibao did have a snack earlier!

The Making of Laibao’s Ramshackle Home

Thursday,  November 1, 2012. Since I find it difficult to upkeep a pet at home as the children wish, I poured some of that longing into creating miniature make-believe homes for our “puppet-creatures”. Here is Laibao’s rickety, ramshackle home:
