Can you decipher what I am reciting? Scroll down for answers
1) 唐朝诗人李绅 《悯农》。
人之初，性本善。性相近，习相远。苟不教，性乃迁。教之道，贵以专。昔孟母，择邻处。子不学，断机杼. ........ . ..........
To date I also know the following:
4）唐朝诗人 孟浩然的 《春晓》
Initially, Mummy tried to teach me 春晓, but I ignored her. A few weeks later, I actually came back from school reciting it perfectly. You know how I learnt all these Chinese poems? By reciting after 宋老师 when she is showering us!!!! Mummy really don't know what to say..... think I am really a social learner........

Daddy and Mummy looked through the entire series of Little Miss YYY and felt there were quite a few that described me pretty well. But it got to be this, that was a perfect match for me ...
And the first page of this book explains everything (except the part about little brother and talking in my sleep). From the moment I wake up in the morning, my mouth keeps moving non-stop .... till I go for my afternoon nap. Then the cycle continues after my nap, till the time I go to bed at night. If only sleep is non-essential, how wonderful would that be ....
Sometimes, Daddy and Mummy wonder if they should just change my name from "Jing Ting" to "叽喳婆". Next time when I go to primary school, sure kenna punished by the teachers for talking non-stop during lessons !!!
First, Mummy washed the vegetable while I looked on..... Notice that I have my own apron? Cos previously I requested for it since Mummy also has an apron.
Then Mummy left me to finish plucking it on my own, while she prepares the rest of the meal. Mummy says she'll let me try other tasks as I get older. Yeah!!

Ready to go outside with our lanterns !!!
At the Central .... I insisted on carrying 表妹 lantern ....
And the year of the Goat ... for 公公
Not even 舅舅 can pacify her. She just wanted 舅母
The day before, Daddy and Mummy brought me to Chinatown to soak in the mid autumn festive as well ... initially we wanted to go to the kite flying festival, but it was so crowded that we changed our mind and went to Chinatown.

This is a 3-letter word game. The letters are kept in a container and the game is to form 3-letter words using the letters. Meant for 4 years and above ....
The word-rhyming game ... CAT, MAT, BAT, HAT, PAT ... the "AT" sound .... when Daddy and Mummy said CAT, I knew it starts with Clever Cat (C). MAT starts with Munchy Mike (M). HAT starts with Harry Hat Man (H). BAT starts with Bouncy Ben (B) and PAT starts with Petter Puppy (P). I learnt all those from Letterland in school !!! At least Daddy and Mummy knew I had been paying attention in class
姑姑 had taught me a few 3-letter words before ... so when Daddy tested me, I still remembered !!! ONE and BIG.
Then I learnt one 4-letter word : GOOD. When Daddy stretched me some more by testing a 5-letter word : NIGHT, I simply told Daddy
"I go get my pillow, OK"
Daddy and Mummy laughed out loud ... because I was smart enough to know that the words "Good Night" are sewn on my pillow case and the easiest way to spell NIGHT is to get my pillow out and spell the word accordingly ....
Tada !!! No mistake at all
Then Mummy told me to form my name ... in fact, I wrote my name on the teachers' day cards that I made previously so by right, I should know how to spell my name ... still missed some of the letters in my name (dunno whether it is because of mental block or not ... if kids do have mental block ... haha). Looks like I got to write my name more often. But the best part that I enjoyed most, is to draw letters from the container .... pull and push the handle and out came 2 letters !!!
Hope I will learn more words slowly by playing the game ....

Over the weekend, we passed by Waraku .... and because of me (I kept telling Daddy and Mummy that I want to eat at Waraku), they had to eat at Waraku ... and of course I get a new free toy again ...
The next evening, after school, I played with my new toy .... Fishing Game !!!
Who says you need to go outdoors for fishing ???

I love going to the library and borrowing books to read !!!

Since 叔叔 will be travelling to Thailand during his birthday, so we decided to celebrate his birthday early, before he flies off over the weekend.
Daddy picked me up early from school on Fri so that we can go and get a place at Ichiban Sushi at IMM. While waiting for 爷爷，奶奶，姑姑，叔叔 and Mummy to come, I did some self-entertainment .... remembered the Humpty Thumpty nursery rhyme that I heard at the show at Jurong Point ? Sang that as I was waiting ....
And finally the rest came .... since 叔叔 and I are quite 'heaty', Daddy bought a mango cake, instead of chocolate cake ....
Happy Birthday 叔叔 and enjoy your trip !!!

Uncle Telang, Auntie Winnie, Joel and Camille
Uncle Shucheng, Auntie Peiling and Amelia (Zhiyun)
Uncle Eng Kit, Auntie Jiawei and Kaiying
Uncle Eng Kit, Auntie Jiawei and Kaiying were the first to arrive at about 5 pm .... and then came Uncle Telang and family. While Mummy was busy preparing food for BBQ, Daddy and the rest went downstairs to set up the BBQ. But before that, Joel and I decided to change into our swimming costume to have some fun in the swimming pool. Auntie Jiawei initially wanted to have Kaiying join in the water fun, but decided not to, since it was a little late and too troublesome for Auntie Jiawei to change into her gear ...
So while Daddy and Uncle Telang (more of Uncle Telang actually) were setting up the BBQ fire, Joel and I played in the kiddy pool, with Auntie Winnie looking after us
See Uncle Shucheng and Auntie Peiling feeding Zhiyun, before they have their own dinner ... reminded Daddy of the same routine when I was younger .... sigh ... the greatness of parents !!!
But as least Zhiyun looked like she enjoyed her food (easier to feed), compared to me, when I was the same age ....
