May 7

Dear Parents,

We're lucky!
May 7 is a school holiday in lieu for Vesak Day.
The children (hopefully) should be available for the entire day!
I might make adjustments to have lessons on Monday so that they can have a final revision before their SA1 paper as well as more time to rest after the paper.
I will issue a written memo to you once I work out the best schedule.

If he can do it, you can too!

Manikam is a 2nd year student from Singapore Poly.
He has a water phobia history because when he was young, his friends tried to duck him underwater in the deep pool causing him to be fearful of water.
When he decided to take up swimming lessons with the support and encouragement of his friends and family, he approached me.
My 1st lesson with Manikam - I could feel his stress and anxiety in the water.
With his determination to overcome his phobia, I gave him my all. Not my best but my all. I used all the methods I could think of, all kinds of metaphors and all kinds of floats to help him.
Today was his 5th lesson and guess what? He dare to go to the deep pool to swim now!! Wooo Hooo!! *clap clap*
If going into the deep pool was an achievement,then able to swim 5 meters in the deep pool must have been a miracle for him.
Well Done Manikam! If he can do it, so can you!

Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend 2013

I told my wife about this Walt Disney World Marathon in Orlando. And she gamely took on my challenge! It's always nice to have a supportive wife.

So, at the stroke of midnight, we registered for the marathon race. Wifey will be taking part in the 5k family run. Of course! I am joining her for the 5k run on Friday. After which, I will be taking up Disney goofy challenge. That is, a half marathon run on Saturday and a full marathon on Sunday. =)

And when you take up a goofy challenge  + a 5k run, its known as the Dopey challenge! Haha...
It's a dream for most runners to take part in the Disney World Marathon. For me, it's even more special. Because, not only am I keeping my promise to my wife. I am going to run with the cartoon character that has been growing up together with me.

I promised my wife I will take her on a world tour. Talk is cheap, fulfilling it takes alot of courage and commitment. But I am going to have just her as my wife in this lifetime, if I can't even keep my promise to her, who else can? So, I just took 1 small step by registering in this race. It's going to be the furthest country I am going to bring my wife to.

For me, it's going to be special because it's going to be the 1st time we are going to the States! Wooo HOOooo! Also, how can anyone not like to run in a place where every moment is magical? Just the thought of it makes my adrenaline rush up! Hee....

I can't wait to see Mickey Mouse!

And yes, we are going to the Magical Land - Disneyland! =)

JB A&W & Go Kart!

I found it! I found it!! A&W in JB!! Wooo Hooo!!! Gone are the days where we would take a ferry to Batam or Bintan. Gone are the days where we would take a flight to Bali or Thailand just to satisfy our craving for A&W!!

I have found A&W in Johor Baru! Woooo HOOOooo!!!! Okok, I know. Kids will be asking, why so excited over A&W Teacher Jerry?

Well, people from my era will definitely love the root beer float and who can ever forget about their curly fries? Hmmmm... Nostalgia.

Well, I'm just super glad that we found A&W! Hee....

After lunch, we headed to try out a new sport. Go Karting. It was an impromptu decision made on Sunday and so we went to Permas Go Karting. =D

Got to drive into a palm tree plantation. It's on roads like these that you wish your car was a 4wheel drive.

We had the whole circuit to ourselves! It was a good experience for the speed and thrill. Hee... =)
And yes, we are explorers of the world. =)
