granny's gold keepsake

every little baby born into this family gets a tiny gold chain from grandma for keepsake, including me. it has been in mom's keepsake in the safe deposit for almost 30 years now. I think grandma wants us to keep it as a token of remembrance of her, though she left us a long time ago.

Since the olden days, chinese are very keen in gold investing. must say they are right and clever too. over the decade, gold price increased so dramatically, it has become a luxury item highly sort after. it symbolised one's wealth and purchasing power. The richer ones invest in gold ingots of pure bullion cast in a convenient size and shape. these coins have a currency value so there's no worries that the value will depreciate.

Thanks to grandma, all of us have something to remember after her. something sentimental and of good value. in the future, i'll pass this to my son, hopefully he'll keep it with the family for as long as he can.
