The drama continues….the teacher called again..(the conversation of course was in Mandarin but I have translated below…)
T-You know Kieran didn’t complete his homework..
Me-Yes yes, but there’s just too much, we are working on them..In fact we were doing it until 11 pm last night!
T-But he still has so much he hasn’t completed…
Me-Actually we already have difficulty completing the daily homework as it is and now we have a backlog of 5 days plus holiday homework..Give us some more time..
T-I know but he has to hurry up as the exam is coming in July and there’s so much to catch up..
Really I don’t give a damn about the exam la. Don’t finish the homework is like so terrible liddat…gimme a break la!!!!
Me-I really think the amount of homework you give is just way too much for such a young child to handle..
T-I know, I too pity them but we have no choice, all the classes are doing the same amount..
Now u r trying to say that my son is soooo dumbo and can’t catch up like the rest is it????
Me-Madam, we really are trying our very best. Please give us till end of this week.
T-I told him to do some of his work in class today but he ran away and disappeared..
Me-How can he run away and disappear??
Like how can you as a teacher allow that to happen? Now you too can’t even control him! How good of a teacher are you?? WTF! Bluekkkkkkkkkkk!
T-There is a time like story telling so he ran away for that purpose..
Ayooo…if I’m a kid I also will run away and go for story telling anytime versus doing boring ol homework la!
I don’t know la, I really didn’t want to continue the conversation and she kept repeating the same old thing and I began to sound disinterested and she sort of got the picture and let me off! I don’t know if it was becos of the phone call, I was extra hard on Kieran last night. I lost my patience and started screaming at him lor…I know I shouldn’t have but I really couldn’t help it. Apah was so clever, left early and went home while I waited with him to do the homework. We are doing the homework at Apoh’s place as my future sister in law (Aunty Fiona) can help with the Chinese part. When I stared at the Chinese characters which I didn’t understand I felt so helpless and stupid and then in turn really got me worked up. Poor Aunty Fiona was already very tired from work as she came back quite late and had dinner so late. However, she was really concerned and came to help immediately after she finished eating. She was so dedicated and patient and insisted we finished up but it was already 11.30 p.m.! I told her his mind was long gone ledi, but she insisted to finish up at least one more page! So by the time we packed up it was past midnight!!!
That was me doing the colouring part for him and aunty Fiona guiding him
Then as we were ready to go I realised Apah again didn’t hear what I told him. I already told him so many times that should he leave first he should take my car instead as all the laundry and other stuff were in my car. At least the maid can clear that when they reach home first. I was so freaking mad with him!!!! I was so tired with Kieran and then that! I also noticed that Kieran brought back his sandwich untouched and guess what was the reason??? The same old story again, he took money from his friend to buy sweets and chocolates. There I made him descent food and he rather not have it and prefer to take money from his friends again. Am I such a monster for being so protective over my son’s well being? The reason he still has all his milk teeth all proper and healthy till today (except for bottom front teeth, even those fell out naturally and the new ones grew back very fast) was the fact that I never introduced him Ribena or any other sweet drinks and also strictly no sweets. The only time he can enjoy sweets are from birthday parties and his piano classes. So I’ve not totally controlled him right??? I don’t know…. 😦
Anyways…back to happier things like the continuing account of my trip…
More goods from my
Amah mad ledi, tissue and wet tissue also buy from HK! What la, the disney packing was irresistable and of course the girly packing of the Kleenex has some lovely fragrance one leh! The top left hand pic is a soup pitcher (pour soup in and oil will float rite? So when u pour the oil remains on the top and you get less oil soup!!), middle one is a bag of hair accessories for Kylie which I got from Disney Shop in the airport (why cos Apah didn’t get her anything from Disneyland!!), various biscuit and jelly moulds in Hello Kitty and Disney characters and some prepacked soup ingredients.
The highlight of the household goods I got was this pooh bear cake mould which comes with the stencil to mark his eyes, nose etc…
Ok ok..that’s not what some of you want to see right..okok my new bag…yes I bought yet another Prada bag from the warehouse…of course at a very good discount, I think at least 50-60% off..
