New Challenge

It has been long since I last updated here.  *Blow spider webs and dust away*. School holidays are less than a week away.  I have no outdoor activities planned for the boy this time as we will gonna stuck at home anyway.  It's a new challenge having to take care of a difficult semi bedridden MIL. I am still grateful though as my FIL, a stroke survivor is very understanding and obedient and that kinda soften the edge of my otherwise rough days.  Oh well. 

We will have more indoor activities instead, starting to learn playing with his musical instruments like ukulele and flute from you tube, home science experiments, gardening etc.  He did quite well in his 2nd term exam, being able to squeeze himself to the top 20  for the whole standard 4 of about 300.  I think that's exceptionally well with no help of tuition and all.  However, the father believes he can do even better with outsourced tuition and be in the top 10. Oh well, his kiasu mode is on! My take is since we have plans of sending him to further studies in Singapore when he is 15, I would rather spend more time with him learning something beyond the local school syllabus.  Hmmm...

Visual Entertainment

We terminated subscription to a digital tv provider long ago when our son started primary school four years ago.  It was under utilized anyway as only the hubs watched the TV in the evening after work.

Now that the parents in-law are here staying with us for an indefinite length of time, we plan to subscribe to the digital tv providers once again.  The old folks coop up at home during weekdays so we hope by subscribing to the provider, it provides more choices of visual entertainment and they won't get too bored at home.
