Winner

I punched my fist into the air and shouted out in joy as I drove my van past the ERP gantry this morning feeling just like Sebastian Vettel when he drove past the finishing line.

The ERP gantry starts @ 7.30am. I drove past the gantry @ 7.29am.

Never before

I've never finished reading a book in just 1 day. I've never been a bookworm and it's really hard to arouse that interest in me to read unless it's some motivation or inspirational books.

But this book titled "Daddy's little secret", I got it @ Popular bookstore on Sunday night within 5mins and the 40% discount tag on the book made me decision almost immediately.

I'm glad that I brought this book. It's a true life story about how this girl named Tina was sexually abused since the age of 9 till 26. And when she was @ that age, she already had 5 children.

It's a really sad book about how much she wishes to break through and get out of her current situation. Yet at the same time, it makes us be grateful of the wonderful life we have now.

Most importantly, the things that we took for granted always. For example, having the power to decided what we want to eat or wear was never a privilege for Tina.

If you are a fan of books like "A boy call it", then you should grab a copy of this. =)

A story worth sharing

A man came home from work late again, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year-old son waiting for him at the door.
“Daddy, may I ask you a question?”
“Yeah, sure, what is it?” replied the man.
“Daddy, how much money do you make an hour?
“That’s none of your business! What makes you ask such a thing?” the man said angrily.

“I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?” pleaded the little boy.
“If you must know, I make $20.00 an hour.”
“Oh,” the little boy replied, head bowed. Looking up, he said, “Daddy, may I borrow $10.00 please?”

The father was furious. “If the only reason you wanted to know how much money I make is just so you can borrow some to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. I work long, hard hours everyday and don’t have time for such childish games.”
The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even madder about the little boy’s questioning. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think he may have been a little hard on his son. Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $10.00, and he really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.
“Are you asleep son?” he asked.
“No daddy, I’m awake,” replied the boy.

“I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier,” said the man. “It’s been a long day and I took my aggravation out on you. Here’s that $10.00 you asked for.”
The little boy sat straight up, beaming. “Oh, thank you daddy!” he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow, he pulled out some more crumpled up bills.
The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at the man.

“Why did you want more money if you already had some?” the father grumbled.
“Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,” the little boy replied.

“Daddy, I have $20.00 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?”

Children Day thoughts...

When I was a child, I would always look forward to Children's Day. That's because, the school will always issue us with a file, a pen or sometimes a bag for our Children's Day.

We would receive either an eraser or if we were really really lucky, a push pop from our teachers. The norm would be a pencil, ruler or a pen from all our teachers. That was enough to cheer up the whole day or week perhaps.



But nowadays, if the kids receive just a pencil or eraser for their children day, it's never enough.

I must be very experienced in this field that I could actually list out their Children Day wishes. Here goes..

1) Ipad 2
2) Iphone 4
3) Flash and Dash
4) Lego Ninjago

Yet, 15years ago, the closest we would get to Ipad 2 are these handheld games....
Suddenly, the feeling of growing old comes into my mind as I'm blogging this. Argh.. Shall stop blogging this post. It's too cruel to bring back these memories! Help!!!!! Someone stop TIME pls.

Happy Children's Day! (Part 1)

Happy Children's Day!

The kiddos were fascinated with this year's Children's Day Present! Hee... We were just glad that they did! That kind of anticipation that the kiddos had when they knew Children Day was coming is simply priceless.

When Teacher Jerry told the kiddos, "Today, Teacher Jerry will give out Children's Day presents to the good children. Only my good boys and good girls will get them." Immediately, the class goes, "Woooo..."

Hee... Classic! I love their attitude and behaviour this week! If only I can have such performance every week... =p

I'd never reveal to the kiddos their Children's Day presents because that's a little thought from us. However, we definitely spent a great deal of time and effort to prepare for them! So, we could have given the kiddos a small piece of eraser or perhaps an ipad2. (More details on my next post)  =)

However,  this year is exceptionally special because we had received a lot of sponsorships and would like to thank all our sponsors and those who made it possible to put the world's happiest smile on the kiddos' faces.

Thank you!

Thank you to our main sponsors - Mentholatum Singapore Division. DKSH Singapore Pte Ltd for sponsoring us with SUNPLAY SPF 130 PA+++ Sunblocks. The kiddos love it! =)

Thank you to Sin Tat Toys Import & Export Trading for giving us a good deal whenever we go to your shop! Thank you Mr Soh! =)


Thank you to Burger King Singapore for your sponsorship in the Tiara & Crowns. The kids were having so much fun with it! =)

Thank you to DHL Express for your fast and prompt shipping services. We will definitely engage your services again! =)

Lastly, if anyone were to ask us, where do our passion to teach comes from? It's from them! The kiddos! =)
HAPPY CHILDREN'S DAY 2011 !!
