Year of the Snake welcomes first baby






SINGAPORE: The Chinese Year of the Water Snake welcomed its first baby in Singapore at the stroke of midnight Saturday.

The 2.78-kilogramme bundle of joy is the first born to proud parents Koh Su Ming and Zhang Jing Jing.

The baby boy made his appearance a week earlier than expected.

An exhausted Madam Zhang said the labour lasted for 10 hours.

As the first child born in the Year of the Snake, the yet unnamed baby receives a cash gift in the form of an education endowment plan, among other things.

Mr Koh, the baby's father, said: "We feel very blessed that we have so many parties showering us with love and so many gifts, we feel very thankful."
