Hi everyone,

Hope you and your ds/dd are coping well with Sec 1.
We are still trying to get used to the longer hours.
Wish everyone a very happy one week holiday in advance.

Direct translation from Hokkien would be "mountain tortoise"?

If that's so, the name must change with the times!
Where are all the feminists?
How come no one is protesting to the name?

Hmmm...The person who came up with the Chinese name must be a man! :evil:
Mountain tortoise in Hokkien (Singaporean), adapted from Teochew I thought is swakoo?

Sanba just means poor village. The theme of this year's Intl Women's day is poor village women rights, I heard it on the radio this morning

How has everyone been?
It's been a while since we come here and chat!
Come to think of it, we have survived one whole term! Yay!!! :dancing:

DD has been very busy with her CCAs so she is barely home before 6pm.
That's why I am so glad it's learning journey week this week...
I could actually spend some quality time with DD.

Do keep us updated on your DS/DD's progress in sec 1.
And let's continue to support one another in our children's educational journey! :snuggles:

Btw, Happy "firefly38"妇女节to all the Mummies! :evil: :wink:
Aiyo... No wonder my ears so itchy yesterday... Someone was calling my name... :lol: :wink:
But my 38 does not mean 山芭 or SamPat hor... It literally means 三八... Not 三月八日, but 八月三日, my birthday... :boogie: :boogie:

Hahaha...hello, firefly! :smile:
Good that you clarify...
Some of us have been wondering what your 38 stands for. :evil:
How's your DS doing in RI?
Enjoying his CCA?

My friend, whose DS is also in RI, is feeling pretty stressed.
Apparently, the boy failed an EL and a Math test.
Very kancheong...wondering if she should look for tutors for him.

DS seems to be coping fine, still can spend about an hour a day on FB & his favorite Pokemon game. But.. SEEMS TO BE only ah.. but I take that as equals to 'IS'... :wink:

Talking about CCA.. I think DS is enjoying his CCA so much, that he just can't stop singing! DS sings when he is studying, doing homework, bathing doing big business, even watching TV! Yes, WE are watching TV, and I just can't hear the sound from the TV at all!

Recently, DH can't tahan anymore and put a 'curfew' to DS' singing- "No singing after 10pm" DH tells DS.. But DS will still sing, but softly and secretly, in his room, till he falls asleep!

After that, it will be my turn to sing 'Let There Be Peace On Earth' to disturb DH, haha! :evil:
