Family Time

<<非诚勿扰>> is the current show that's capable of having our whole family gathered together in the living room every Sat & Sun night.

After a long day out, this is perhaps the best variety show that allows all of us to unwind. The show will start at 9.10pm on Starhub Channel 830. We would all be ready by 9.05pm on our usual places. Haha...

This is a pretty interesting show whereby they will have 24 single ladies deciding whether if they would want to date the single man on the show. There will be a total of 5 men per show and we would start guessing if he will be able to have a lady to leave the stage with him. Most of the time, we would start commenting the moment he appear. How he dress, how he walked and how he talked.

No doubt, there are some really sincere ones, there are some with really nice love stories. Well, I guess the best part is how each lady view the men from different perspectives.

The whole family is loving this show at the moment. And the most importantly, it gives us 4 hours of family bonding every sat & sun. I treasure such moments with my family.

Passion. Love. Commitments.

It's wonderful to know how much the kiddos enjoy my lesson. Just a few months ago, Aunreea was still in tears when she came  for Teacher Jerry's lesson. But now, she's swimming like a frog in the deep pool!

She's just 3 years old but I'm already preparing her for SwimSafer Stage 1! How cool! Hee... Here's a shot of her backstroke. Taught her for the 1st time & I'm surprised how well she can float on her back! Credits to Mr & Mrs Wee for bringing her to the pool often!

Every child can swim. Learning to swim well is a combination of a committed teacher & a student with passion to learn.

In a few years time, I won't be surprised if Aunreea is able to swim butterfly as well as Daryl! =)

The Next Big Thing is Already Here

Dedicated to those who are queuing up for the Iphone 5... I'm sure Teacher Summer would love this video. Haha...

Well, she can continue using her Samsung & I'm still contented with my Iphone 4.

It's all fated

Just as my wife & I were talking about how jealous we are to see her friends travelling to Thailand. We got an unexpected message from Aunty Joy! She was asking when we are going to Thailand!

Moments like these, we would always say "it's fated", the mighty one above us has plans for us...

If that sign was not obvious enough, we reached home tonight to be greeted by 2 letters from Thailand!

Our sponsored child from Thailand has wrote back to us! Using the color pencils that we gave it to him. Nice. I think he has a talent in drawing!

I asked him if he knew how to swim in my previous letter. Today I had my answer. I felt someone had squeezed my heart when I saw the reply. It was simple. It wrote "I can't swim. I don't have swimming course because I don't have a swimming pool at school." Arn't we lucky to have a pool that's within reach? Perhaps a 15min walk or a bus ride would get you to the nearest swimming pool? I feel in me that I can do something more to help him and his village.. Well, perhaps in March 2013.. Let's see what we can plan =)

Back to Singapore, Teacher Summer and I went shopping for a new Screen for our students! She says her current monitor is too small and she wants a bigger one for the students.. So, off we went to buy a bigger screen!

The old screen was 19". The new one 32". All for the benefits of our TWFEC students. Arn't they lucky? =)

Oh! Speaking of TV. Did you watch Channel 8 latest show <<我们等你>> "Don't stop believing" ? The little girl who played the character "毛毛" is my student! Hee... Proud of her!

Can you imagine the commotion she creates everytime she comes for my class? Hee... everyone will start calling her "Mao Mao"!!  "Mao Mao"!! Well, here's a photo of a superstar coach and a superstar actor! =)
