Riding On Two Wheels

Ever since moving to a landed house, I am getting lazy to exercise compared to the days when we lived in a condo where I had to walk him down and stay there with him, be it going to the playground, playing table tennis, basketball, badminton or swimming. 

Not anymore.  I can now sit back, relax and have a cuppa nescafe.  He rekindles friendships with the 7 yo Malay boy who lives across the road and a 9yo Indian boy few doors away.  Yes, 1Malaysia spirit!  LOL...  The 9yo even helped the boy remove the two baby wheels on his bike and taught him how to ride on two wheels and Wheeeee.... He now cycles like a "pro" on two wheels..  :)

On another note, I always encourage my boy to speak to his friends in their own language, here our conversation goes...

Mommy: Boy, Axx is a Malay, right, do you know that you can speak to him in Malay?
Ian: But he only speaks English with me worr.
Mommy: It's okay but you can always ask him to speak to you in Malay marr.
Ian: Hmmmm... but he only speaks English worr.  Axxx (the Indian boy) also speaks English. So, can I ask him to speak to me in Tamil??
Mommy: .................

So good to have neighbours as friends. Reminded me of my childhood time. It was fun and carefree. Nowadays, people are so busy and less opportunity to mix around with neighbour.

I miss those days where we can mingle with our neighbors. I live in a condo and I hardly see my neighbors :(

LOL! I don't mind if someone wanted to teach me Tamil!

Gone were the days where we run across to our neighbours' house for playtime. It's great to see Ian with his new friends.
