HQ has been attending his new pre-school for 3 weeks now (as of today).
He's enjoying school and more willing to speak more Mandarin to the teachers and students compared to last year (He started school at 3 for the second half of 2009 at another pre-school).
Today he is taking his first ejaan for the following words - rambut, lelaki, perempuan and gigi. I think I only knew how to write those words when I was in Primary 2 or 3. And again, I knew naughts about this until mum updated me. Thanks mum! :-)
"Teacher Yong says I cannot speak English to her, must speak Mandarin only, because she teach Mandarin."
"Teacher Shuba teach us 1,2,3... but no plus and minus yet."
"Teacher Hew tell us a Mandarin story. I tell her I don't understand and ask her to tell the story in English. She say I must learn to listen more Mandarin."
"Teacher Harjit asked a boy to keep quiet today. I think Teacher Harjit likes me." :-D
"I eat 3 bowls of mee hoon today."
"The chicken porridge in school has lots of bones. I put the bones in my hand, and when I finished my porridge, I put the bowl in the basin and wash my hands. I eat one bowl only because got lots of bones. I like your porridge better, popo."
"Today we eat bread and drink Milo. I don't like the bread because got butter and kaya. But Teacher Mages say eat a little if don't like. So... I eat one piece only. I tell Teacher I want only kaya on my bread next time."
"Qing Qing is also in my class now."
Qing Qing is a schoolmate from HQ's previous school. Looks like Qing Qing changed school as well. HQ has been telling us "I will marry Qing Qing when I grow up." *rolls eyeballs* *slap forehead* *sweat*
(I am VERY tempted to put up her photos here, BUT I must practice restrain.)
"Koh Soon Yi has a big water bottle."
"Yiet Ling wears spectacles in class. But when we go to PE, she don't wear anymore."
"Kai Lin... this Kai Lin is another Kai Lin, not the Kai Lin-Kai Wen Kai Lin."
Kai Lin and Kai Wen are twin girls from his previous school.
"How come all your friends are girls?"
"Oh, got boys also. Chong Ju Fan shares biscuits with me." :-)
"Jaden... Kelvin... didn't give me anything. But we all play together."
"I fight with a boy in school today"
"Because I want to go in a room, my friends all say cannot go... so we fight. But we play-play fight only, nobody get hurt. Nobody cry." *grin*
