Back in full swing

01:00 Yannie 32 Comments

Festive and celebration were over. Time flies, the first quarter of the year is almost completed.  Everyone should back in full swing, be it at work or at school. 
May is chosen by the form teacher to be assistant monitor in the class. I like May to be a monitor. Because she is a bit different from her big sister. She is a quiet and timid girl.  I always worry that she may get bullied by her classmates.  I hope she can be louder and more bold after being a monitor.


First week of ting xie and ejaan from school for my Standard 3 and Standard 1.
Second week of ting xie, spelling and ejaan from tuition and school. My evening time after work is spent training them writing all these words.




We bought all these new workbooks for my two girls. This stack of workbooks consist of all subjects for Standard 3 and Standard 1.I told them, being at the top 5, a trip to Kidzania or Sunway Lagoon in the coming June holiday, fail to do so, stay at home.

  5. Congrats May! My #1 is very quiet and timid too, yet teachers like her and she is a school prefect. Hopefully this will boost their confidence and make them talk more.

  7. I was always the biggest sized students who were all automatically chosen to be monitors or prefects. My heart is always soft but my mouth damn garang and ganas that anay could spit fire when provoked! Wakakakaka....

    1. I was quiet and shy and soft-spoken back then. I was a moderate student and could easily hide among other students. I didn't have the chance to be monitor or prefect.

  8. It is very useful to have her testimonials mentioning that she was a prefect or monitors. it shows the candidate had some leadership skills.

  9. I suggest that she joins some short self defense classes during holidays. Just 3-4 trial sessions would be enough for a person to boost up their bravery and confidence. If any robbers mari in future, I am sure May can give her flying kick! Muahahaha!
