My holiday mood started that Friday, picked Mia up at 2:30pm, stopped at A&W which she regretted later coz we bumped into several of her seniors and also a group of wardens. After lunch, we went straight to the hp shop to top up her hp.
The last time we went there was 2 years ago. The place doesnt look as impressive as when it was first opened. I remember bringing Mia and Anastassia there almost every weekend when they were small. They love the park and also the KLCC Pool. Unfortunately, for Puteri and Zaryff, we stopped going right after Mia started std 1.
For the first time I gave Mia permission to start a friendster account, and boy, was she hooked. Most of her time at home was spent in front of the computer, smsing and doing her homework. (her school gives tonnes of homework) Anastassia started her own blog, whilst Puteri and Zaryff played with computer games.
During the AGM PIBG which was held just before school holidays, Zaryff's teacher told me that she entered Zaryff in a poem recital inter-class competition. So during the holidays I coached him to read "5 little Squirrels". After several minutes trying to memorize the poem, Zaryff said,
"Mama, do I have to hafal all?"
"Yes, Zaryff, of course"
"Tapi panjang sangatla mama...."
"Mana ada panjang. That's the shortest and easiest poem I could find"
Zaryff continued memorizing again.
5 Little Squirrels
Five little squirrels sitting on a tree.
The first one says, "What can you see?"
The second one says, "A man with a gun."
The third one says, "Let’s run, run, run."
The fourth one says, "Let's hide in the shed."
The fifth one says, "I’m not afraid."
And then, "Bang!" goes the gun.
And the five little squirrels all run, run, run.
"Can we change 5 Little Squirrels to 3 Little Squirrels?"
