Yes, I'm a bit off my "crafting" schedule...been pretty busy with a few agendas lately... getting the kids back to school, help Jojo to prepare for her 2nd Semester Examination (which will decide what class she will be group into for the next 5 years in primary...Yup, it's a very 'big deal' stuff here .... Malaysia!!!
Some parents took long leave from job just to accompany their children for the 'study week'. Nope, I'm not kidding! So, since I'm a SAHM - that mean I need to 'play' that part! Please don't judge about this issue, and for your information.. nope.. my parents don't do this when I was in school..never! But, the culture just change...why? It's just a 'culture' thing especially among the Chinese community here in Asia.
You can easily found the such conversation in market place.. in public bus station.. or any 'Kopitiam (local coffee shop)'..."Wah! your kids so big already ah? Go to school ah? What class? A class or B class? Why no go tuition meh? My kids go extra class everyday - after school tuition classes in the morning and I get a private tutor to teach my kids 1 to 1 at night!
I'm a former teacher and currently a part time tuition tutor.. but the idea of sending kids to tuition center everyday? It sound really exhausted and boring for me! I've been approached by a mother, asking me to provide tuition to her son (6 years old) - she want a 1 to 1 (1 tutor for 1 kid) session, 6 session per week, 2 hour per session...she willing to pay ..her intention - to ensure her son did not stay at home for TV or games or whatever.... don't be surprise...This is a very common thinking of all mom here!
