We Went To Neverland And Saw Peter Pan!!!

Image
Thanks to AMBP, I had the chance to catch Peter Pan in Neverland at Sunway Lagoon Amphitheater last Friday Night (26th Nov) in the Grand Premier Show along with my Pixie Girl, Isabelle. We were indeed very excited to catch the show, and the entire process of getting ready and getting there was by itself enjoyable.
Collecting our complimentary tickets from the AMBP booth and heading our way to the Amphitheater, we were greeted by some horrifying spooky characters, who gracefully walked out dead from the Scream Park. Oh did I mention, we had a chance to see the Night Lagoon, Sunway has to offer the Public, and one of the many activities you can indulge in at night at the lagoon is the Scream Park. It's like being in Michael Jackson's Thriller Video! The walk to the Amphitheater was nice for two reasons, it was with Belle and the view of the lagoon - the lighting past the suspension bridge was beautiful! As we reached the gates of Neverland, we did therituals of every musicals…

The Deathly Hallows

Image
After watching Harry Potter - The Deathly Hallows Part 1, yesterday with Belle and CJ, and hearing about the Tale of the 3 brothers which JK Rowling had written about, I became very wishful in the fiction land I must say.

Since the 3 Peverell brothers asked for gift from Death to avoid being killed for figuring a way to cross a river, I somehow wish I could have those same 3 gifts they got.
Here's why:
1. The Elder wand: To change what I wish to in my life, and those around me.
2. The resurrection stone: To bring my parents back, have them meet my 3 lovely kids, and hug them real tight, tell them I love them and say THANK YOU for being my parents and then letting them go back to rest in peace.
3. The invisibility cloak: I would so wear it and go slap the living day lights out of the people who successfully seem to piss me off, especially the ones who love blaming others for their own self inflicted misfortunes!! They won't know what HIT them and that's definitely satisf…

Late bloomers

Image
Many of us were late bloomers ourselves, but somehow expect way to much from our kids for some apparent reason. Could it be because we somehow feel our kids need to achieve what we did not? Get what we didn't get as kids? or is it competition we have between other parents to keep our face up high?

I remember being a late bloomer myself. In school, rarely I got to be in the top 10 position after exams, but this was not the case when I went to uni. I realise the many times I have seen a flip in my achievements as I grew older.
Should we ignore this and expect our kids to be excellent from the start, or should we 'cut them some slack' and let them enjoy life and school at a balance and not judge them for things they may not achieve as well as the others?
We need to just make sure our children have a strong foundation to their knowledge in school and a wide experience to the world around them. All these, along with good grounds for civic sensibility, success will definitely …

The things we put up with?

Image
What a woman puts up with, in life is truly enormous. If you actually list it down, I'm sure it can go a mile long. Let me list a few and see how long it could go with explanations.

1. We put up with our parents as kids especially during our teens and early 20s, because we could never understand why they kept saying NO to what we wanted to do. Our fun was always wrong to their eyes?
2. We put up with our teachers, because some were unable to see how capable we truly were and most of them favored kids who were naturally smart of made intelligent by tuition teachers instead of themselves.. it's easier to educate smart kids?
3. We put up with our enemies in school, in university, at work because somehow they don't see eye to eye with us, and if we could kill them we would but we just tolerate them so that we can carry on with life?
4. We put up with our siblings. Come on! No family is perfect, and no one can say they never had a conflict or a misunderstanding amongst themsel…

"So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land! Peter Pan.

What's the bloody field for??

I placed my son in a school that has a great big field, fantastic for physical activities, but only to end up with teachers who were afraid of the sun.

I tell my son to run and enjoy the thrill, but sadly his educators only know how to hold his hand and tell him to STAY PUT!
I am so disappointed with the school I had chosen for my children's preschool education. I know that it was initially very good in all the aspect of its curriculum and activities, but after what I had to go through with my daughter's teacher shouting at my girl for finishing a chapter of her maths book in advanced, and then to have her party bags for her friends gone missing despite me giving it specifically for the absent kids at my daughter's birthday party in school, and above all having to hear her deny the scolding and the missing bags was absolutely mental!
Let me get to the part where she had her BM book in her bag for 4 weeks which meant they did not study the subject for 4 weeks.. that's …

Greener pastures?

"Should I work or should I stay home?"
"I regret quitting my job!" "I'm going mad being home, I need a break! I need my job back!"
Well these are just some of the common lines we hear from so many mums of this generation. NO they are not my lines. I have heard my share of it, I must say. Then again, no one is here to judge another, well at least not me. I believe every woman who is a mother, has her own right to deciding what she wants in her life. Many say they want a career, and when they have it, they grumble over the lack of time for their family, but these are the same women, who when given the opportunity to be at home, and not worry about monetary issues, choose to think they are being sentenced instead.
The grass is always greener on the other side, it's only when you get to the other side you will notice that someone planted carpet grass and made you think it was all green and dandy. I don't see why a stay home mum would want to jus…
