Re: Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) Updates

Actually, at first I thought it's common sense too. Then hor...after finding out that CCS had to explain the rationale of "rationing" to business leaders in such detail, I started to accept that it doesn't come naturally to most people. Has it got to do with my observation of some highly educated p...

*I am actually quite disappointed with quite many highly educated people lacking critical thinking skills. Something wrong with our education system perhaps.

Re: All About Health Insurance

Which insurer offering cheaper but covers “as charge”? Any idea? Stick to NTUC if your kids are having it coz they are the more conscientious in the market. Some may appear cheaper now but years down the road, their increments may (likely to) surpass NTUC (that i ever researched and spoke to severa...

For the sake of my children, I would say no.

More often than not, for the sake of the children, the apparent answer is YES (I have seen many many cases).

*if your parents didn't divorce and forced themselves to stay together for the sake of the kid/s, you might have turned up worst.

Re: All About Working With Children Who Are Weak Academically

may I know what is OS ? All of us have OS in our hearts. Think younger kids may have more coz of their 'power positions' cannot be as equal to their parents as yet (and so can only 'OS'). :wink: 在日常生活中,我們常常會把內心想講卻沒有講出來的話稱之為「內心的 OS」,或者直接簡稱作「OS」。 像是你很討厭一個人,但又不想跟他撕破臉,對他擠出不情願的微笑時,你的內心可能正在狂罵他髒話。 這些髒話,就可...

Re: All About Working With Children Who Are Weak Academically

Kids, like us, hold OS in their hearts whenever they are tasked/scheduled/advised/reminded/nagged in different intensity to 'study hard'. All these OS will be reflected in the levels of rebellion when they grow further (eg, see news of those discovered pervert tertiary kids, that I believe many are ...

Re: All About Working With Children Who Are Weak Academically

Hi Hercules If your GN gets to a reasonable level for chinese one day, will you consider HCL for her if she qualifies? A child who struggled in chinese in the beginning, would you think we shld not aim too high or we shld not short change her new opportunities ? When my GN got ‘pleasing results’ at...
