Come check out my food prices

Remember i mentioned that i needed to sell food so that i can save money to go to a private school? I was thinking the whole night and i finally came out with a price list. I called Mah Mah today after school to share it with her. Mami told me that i have to always discuss this with my business partners. I don't quite understand why but i did just that. I told Mah Mah that we should sell rice at two dollars and six cents, noodles at four dollars and eight cents and choc cake at six dollars and ten cents. Mah Mah said that we can't sell at that price because there is no more one cent gold coins. So i need to think again.

Mah Mah gave me a new food menu like jelly, sandwiches and some drinks like apple juice, carrot and milk, apple with carrot,ribena, orange juice and lemonade. Now i need to prepare my stall. I wonder when Mah Mah and Yeh Yeh are coming.

Which school should I go to next year?

Mami is cracking her head to decide which school I should be going for Primary 1. Dadi and Mami wants me to learn Mandarin, but they can't teach me Mandarin. They do not want me to rely on Tuition Teachers because they want me to study independently.

Mami had registered me in a Government Chinese School last year. My Kindergarden teachers are all for it in encouraging Mami to be bold in sending me to a Chinese School because I've been doing well in the Kindergarden. At the same time, I'm telling Mami that I don't want to go to a Chinese School. This is making Mami very indecisive.

Next month, I'll be going for an assessment at Sekolah Sri Sempurna. This is the next alternative for Dadi and Mami because the fees are a little more reasonable than other Private Schools and it has Mandarin as a subject. Though Dadi told me yesterday that he doesn't have the money to send me to a Private School, I had an idea.... heh...heh.... I shared this with my Yeh Yeh and Mah Mah yesterday over the phone, and they too think it's a good idea. In fact, my Mah Mah said that she will bake me a chocolate cake for it! Yum, Yum!

I told Yeh Yeh that we needed to collect some money. I will ask my Kakak to cook. Yeh Yeh and Mah Mah will carry my long table from Ben's room and put it under the house roof. They cannot put it at the gate in case it rains. Then they will help me sell food on the table. I will be in charge of calling my friends by ringing the bell from my bicycle to ask everyone to come and buy food. With the money, I hope to go to the Private School because I don't want to go to a Chinese School. I'm very frighten of fierce teachers and my cousins Nicolas Kor Kor and Ashley Cheh Cheh have been telling me that.

Now I need to call my Yeh Yeh and Mah Mah to see when they can come from Ipoh and sell food for me here under my house roof.

My Singapore Adventure

My adventure to Singapore during yearend in 2010

Hello again

It's been a long time since there was an update from me. The family was pretty busy with some changes but for a start, thank God that Ah Mah's health condition is stable and she stays in my house during the weekends to spend time with us.

I am turning 6 years old this month. As Mami always tell me "Benjamin, you are now a big boy. You need to start thinking like a big boy too".

Just to give you a few photos from last year.....

1) Paige boy for a wedding at church....

2) Spending some play time with cousins... Ashley and Tobin...

3) Went to Lost World, Ipoh with Yeh Yeh, Mah Mah, Dadi, Mami and Shaun TiTi...

Hope to be able to blog more this year. Cheers!
