Wow.. I just remember celebrating Christmas and New Year and without realizing Chinese New Year just around the corner. Another shopping spree for others, especially those had a payday while others just window shopping.
What is great being a Malaysian and living in this country is being able to enjoy the public holidays, celebrate all the festivals and there are varieties of foods.. in any cuisines you want… everything are available here.
I just love being a Malaysian.. especially when it comes to any celebration.. i look forward to visit family and friends whom celebrate certain occasions.. i just love holidays.. but most of all i love foods.. time to eat…eat..eat.
This is the prediction i read and copied from www.chiff.com just for sharing;
The year of the Rabbit is traditionally associated with home and family, artistic pursuits, diplomacy, and keeping the peace. Therefore, 2011 is very likely to be a relatively calmer one than 2010 both on the world scene, as well as on a personal level.
Conversely, nations will also become more insular and increasingly lock down their borders to protect against the “other”. However, 2011 will also see new art movements projecting a distinct national identity taking the world by storm. Shrewd and creative new business partnerships will also form to the benefit of all.
Okay.. move along Tiger..hop in Rabbit!
Gong Xi Fa Chai!…. ang pow lai lai
I am proud that my daughter loves to draw, she is artistic.. and also talkative.. that makes a package of creative. She will be 5 years old this April, she don’t really know how to spell yet..but last week we wanted to shop for groceries.. so i was writing the list down while asking my husband what else we needed to buy.. suddenly she said she wanted to write.. well i gave her another piece of paper.. she asked..and she write something..i wonder how she wrote it.. she will ask ‘what else mummy?’.. apple.. ok.. ‘anything else?’..it was fun to see the way she ask and write..as if its so real.. i will add my list.. tv.. sofa.. . until i said.. ‘that’s it’.. ok..let me see.. My creative girl did not write it.. she draw.. she draw apple..tv..sofa.. most of the list are there.. and i let her bring her list with her.. oh ya she know what she draw.
Few days ago, there she was with her paper and pencil.. looking at me.. i asked what she was doing at that time.. she just said nothing while drawing something. She came to me with a smile..’mummy, look i draw your face’.. I said ‘waaa.. thank you.. this is beautiful..but why are there black dots on my face?’.. She said ‘you see lah.. ada dirty bah your face kan’… The statement she gave me was an insult..but yet honest.
This is it… i really need to get acne scar treatments for my face.. i really do.. i must!
A child is innocent and honest.. their opinion can be hurtful but so true..so listen!
Once we reached the chapter of marriage.. most of us are blessed to open another chapter that is parenting. It is truly a challenge, especially when there are still small and needed our attention… and can be a stressful when they grow up as teenagers. No matter what their age, how they behave, how challenging, how stressful they can be.. there are still our children.. and when they grow up.. being adult.. married.. taller than us.. successful than us.. there are still our children.
Parenting is a learning experience, if there are a system on dealing with children .. it will never works the same for every parents.. why? Because our children are different.. some are blessed with naturally smart, talkative, hyperactive, slow, gifted and some are just special.
There are hard and difficult times in parenting and I am sure you have been in a situation where you need a ‘remote control’ .. just to pause that moment..or fast forward.. just to do anything to fix the situation … or just say a magic word ‘hoodia‘ ‘hoohaa’ anything and it will be alright.
I believe a mother easily attached to their child’s emotion, it is easier for a mother to make a child listen and because mother make it in a creative way. Being a mother myself, i understand my hyperactive/sensitive son and talkative daughter’s needs.. when they angry..when they need attention. There are books on how to deal with children.. and again.. there are not the same with every child.. The best think to learn is to analyze your child.. one by one.. to make them listen to you.. you have to think the way their think..not the way you think.
And if you learn something about new on how to about handling children, share it with your spouse, parenting is not only a mother’s responsibility but both husband and wife. We all make mistakes but we never learned unless we try.
Happy children comes from creative parenting.. all the best!
