Creative gift from tutoree:
The pink envelop reads "PS to cut balloons", pointing to a toothpick in regards to the 6 small balloons on the side. Each balloon contained a small piece of paper with writing on it, reading "Dale: 博達 (Chinese Name): You are a good teacher: Weeeee! (answer to "what did the snail say riding on the turtle's back?")" amongst other things. The big paper reads "Dear Dale, Merry Xmas, You are a good TEACHER" and "Empty-pig Angela (sister)"

****"Good" here to describe teaching is clearly a relative term.****
