Building their 'class nest"

Another back dated post. *sigh*

My boys already in their big school for a month plus, so far so good, they love their new school and they are looking forward to school everyday, not that they love to study, but they got a lot new friends to play with and they got tons of fun at school too!! *worried* Well, that will be in another post.

On the first week of school, we selected the parent class rep, and for the first few weeks we are quite busy, beside than busy with the kids on the new environment, new school and new friends, we parent also have to get to know each other well, exchange e mail, phone numbers, know their kids and not forget we also get together to do the decoration at our kid's new "class nest" on the weekend.

To my surprise, this school, like i mention here, they want we parent to involve in all the acitivity in school, one of it, we have to decorate the class ourself. The previous year students, they moved all their things away to their new classroom and for new standard one class , it will be totally empty except for the tables and chairs.

On the first week weekend, all of us went to school for the "big task". I am glad that, most parent are really sporting, they give in their idea, volunteer to bring things to decorate and cleaning tools and detergent to wipe tables and chairs and windows.

look at the parents, some are doing drawing, some are cleaning, some are wipping...
at the back it is totally emtpy and we have to put up the reading card board.

everyone working hard, except me clicking here and there. LOL!

ok, must show that i am working hard too!! LOL!
Sorry i have to blur out the parent's face without getting permission from them to post it here.

the new cabinets for all the acitivities book & execise books and the new decorate board with all the reading posters.

this is the reading corner. Yes, we even get the tables and chairs from ikea!!

new curtain for the class, oh yes, we get someone to come and tailor made it. Cool ya?

more deco and make it look more fun and interesting place to study.

the notice board near the class entrance, draw and decorate by one of the mummy, i salute her art talent. I admit i cannot do such nice art work.

Each class has their own class theme, we all agree we want to have "space" theme. One of the mummy did this very nice Rocket on the class entrance door! Pending is the children's photo in an astronauts helmet and we will paste it on the rocket and we are trying to look for some 3D planets stickers to stick it on the wall too.

Tada, this is the highlight of the class, the cute rocket!

This is just some update on my boys's new big school.

*wiping cob web*

I better start updating this blog before it grow more cob web.

How is everyone's Chinese New Year? Had a good one? As for me, not doing much, rotting in town, daily mall hopping and yet so lazy to update my blog * tsk tsk tsk*

Okay, now i better pen down how i celebrate my big 40 this year. As i mention in early post, this year my birthday fall on the Chinese New Year Eve. Everyone will be going back to their hometown or go somewhere holidays. My bunch of thoughtful friends arrange a meet up two weeks before my birthday, we went out for lunch at this restaurant again. I had blog about this place before, you can read it here and here.

Since Chinese New Year is round the corner, they had Yee Sang in their menu. Of course we order that and this is my first Yee Sang for 2012.

Yummylicious Yee Sang

juicy and tender ribs, one of my favorite.

Herbs Chicken in claypot

fried rice

this is also another their signature dish - Prawn and glass noodles with strong wine soup, this is also my favorite! Price is not cheap for this dish.

salted egg crabs...finger licking good.


We chat and enjoy the yummy food and last is the cake cutting session.

me and the three boys (the red color shirt boy is my ex colleague's boy) I don't know why he is so friendly that day, eventually when took this picture, he put his hand round my neck. He is a big fan of cake blowing and cake cutting. My two boys had out grown from that and show not so much interested, not only that, my two boys also lazy to sing birthday song to me. *tsk tsk tsk*

Don't ask why got so many candles. hahahhahahha..
One of my friend thought i am still in my sweet 30's, so this is the candles that she grab and the small little boy want to light all the candles on the cake.

See how excited is E-Jay, he is helping me to cut the cake. LOL
