A Visit to Sydney

Many years of planning but we had never really able to book a flight to Sydney. This time, we are really going over. Flight has been booked. We are very excited but there's lots for my sister to do. As we would be staying at her house, she has to buy some memory foam toppers, pillows, blanket and bolsters. Besides that, she will be preparing an itinerary and rent a car for us. The Zoo would be a must go for the children as they are really looking forward to seeing the koala bears and kangaroos. I'm going to search for some other exciting places to visit in Sydney. I'm so excited!

Lots to do

It has been quite some time since I last updated this blog.  Gosh, now I realize how busy I was with my brother's wedding in December last year followed by homeschooling as well as baking and shopping for Chinese New Year.  Being busy is always better than having nothing to do.  Now that the wedding and Chinese New Year is over, I can focus more on homeschooling my son.

My Sister Is Back

Yeah, my sister is back and we are all so excited about it.  The kids adore her and would glue to her the whole day.  That means, I get my time off and could relax a little.  How nice! This time around, we are all busy preparing for my brother's wedding.  So, there's not much time for us to bake and cook, like we used to do whenever my sister is back.

Wearing Glasses

Wearing glasses is already very inconvenient for most people, especially during sports practices or sports events. I wore spectacles when I was in school and I married a man who also wears spectacles. So, as we expected, our children are all short sighted. Sometimes, when I look at people with presbyopia who also require a correction for astigmatism, myopia or hyperopia,I feel I am blessed. These people would need bifocal glasses and they may get bifocal lenses to help them see clearly. So, no matter how inconvenient glasses are, it's how we count our blessings that is important.

School Holidays

School holidays are usually filled with travels and vacations but this time around, we did not go anywhere or should I say we have no travel plans so far as we are all very busy.  The children are busy training for their Taekwondo tournament while I'm busy helping with the preparation of my brother's wedding.  So, this school holidays would be one without travel but will still be filled with fun and laughter.

The UPSR examination is finally over.  For the past few months, students sitting for this exam gave up all their fun time for studies, tuition classes and revisions.  Now, they could sing, laugh and play all day without the stress of what seems to be an important examinations.  For me, result is not everything, rather it is only a small part of our lives.  So, dear son, no matter what result you obtain, we will accept it with an open heart.

Life in the Village

Life in the village is different from life in the city. My children love going back to the village. They love to get in touch with the nature and they love doing sports there. One day when they were back in the village, they had the opportunity to ride on what seems like a 110cc atv. It was really a new experience for them. Children living in the city are confined at home most of the time. Even if they want to get outside, there is always worries about crime. That's why they love the village.
