A mini project

Two weeks ago, me and my boys had some mini project. Saw it at Pinterest, think it is quite interesting, i can try it with my boys. Here, our mini project....

First, collected some egg shells, when you break an egg, don't break it halve, just cut the top part, so you can have more space to fill the soil.

fill it like this...



this is how it look after you fill the soil


i let the boys do it...they are having fun.


fill all the egg shells with soil then add in the onion..



i fill another egg carton with some soil, another way to
plant spring onion.



few days later you will see some already growing..


after two weeks...tada.....nice and cute?? hahahah



this is our mini project, now waiting for the harvest time. :)

Fun Friday Night

~ Another backdated post ~

Last month, 20/04/2012 to be exact, there was a fun friday in my boys's school. Two weeks before the event, my boys already start count down to the date, they are so excited about it.

Once i reached home from work, i saw two of them already get themselve ready, shower and change and had light dinner. We leave the house around 6pm, lucky we are early!



The banner at the school
 


a big screen on the field, for the movie night.
 




We are early, and still not much people....
 


Game corner...we are early, so we don't need to queue!
 


The boys try out some game
 


Bowling! Use coconut as bowling ball and hit at the mineral water bottles!
 

Crash the cans!


daddy join them for the game

Cruz in action!


try to kick the balls into the hole.

after some game, they are queueing for this...the scary scary house!! Long queue and long waited! Like i said earlier, lucky we are early, later of the night, the queue was scary!!

 


this is the scary scary house


while the boys are queueing for the scary house, me and hub went for some food - nasi lemak!


Curry noodles or some noodles. The stalls are taking care by the teachers or some volunteers parent, the fund that they collect will go to the school fund.

kids are having fun at the field, and there are some dancing performance by the kids , before the movie night start.

there is an ice cream van too!! Nice ice cream and it come no cheap, RM4 per cup.


weather was not so good, later at night, it start drizzling...but everyone still enjoy, no one leave, some even hold umbrella and sit on the field and watch Puss in boots.



getting crowded...

We all had a fun night, we manage to finish watching one movie, it was a bit too late and next day my boys had extra class to attend need to wake up early, so we didn't stay back for the second show, Thor. My boys certainly enjoy themselves very very much that night!

Careers that Can Be Great for Moms

Moms necessarily have a full-time job. It’s called being a mom. For whatever reason, however, moms do not receive a salary for being a mom – excluding tax breaks and/or alimony payments. Life is expensive for anyone. Life is even more expensive for a mom, who is responsible for children. As such, many moms are interested in reentering the workplace. But, experience as a "mom" is not necessarily in high demand in today's job market. All is not lost. There are careers that take minimal amounts of training, and there are easy financing options for that training. The following are just a few of the potential careers for moms:



  • Forensic ScienceForensic science is a career that is most popularly exhibited on various crime-scene dramas. Although the depiction of what a forensic scientist actually does is not necessarily reflected on the screen, it is still an exciting and meaningful career option for anyone--including moms. Forensic scientists typically have a strong backing in science which usually means a four year undergraduate degree. Although the degree is a more extensive one than the degrees for other career options, other careers are nowhere near as exciting. As a forensic scientist, you are a key cog in the criminal justice system and/or academia. 


  • Paralegal CertificationParalegals assist attorneys in those attorneys' legal practice. Becoming a paralegal does not take the extensive training of a lawyer, but for those who have an aspiration to become a lawyer tucked away somewhere in the back of their mind, there is really no better access point to the profession than to become a paralegal first. Becoming a paralegal requires at least a two-year associates degree, but colleges also offer four-year degrees. When hiring paralegals, however, the main part is whether the attorney thinks you can do the job. Effective writing and oral communication skills are critical. If you want to be a lawyer later, consider doing the four-year degree, because a law degree is a graduate level degree that requires a bachelor degree first. For more information on how to become a paralegal, including what a paralegal does on a daily basis, go to http://www.paralegalcertification.com/.


  • Human Resource ManagerThis is a job where the "mom" skill-set is certainly applicable. Human resource managers basically make sure that the employees for their company are taken care of. In other words, it’s a little bit like making sure your kids bring their gym bags to school for practice, among other things. Obviously, the stakes are a bit higher when you are looking out for other's needs on a corporate level, but still, you get the point. To be a human resource manager, it is not always necessary to have a college degree at all; however, because professionals have a college degree, you will be at a great disadvantage without one. Most colleges offer degrees in human resource management, as well as graduate level work in the area.
