Last week, I signed up the girls and myself to attend a free motivational workshop conducted by Super Champz. It’s a 2.5 hours workshop held at PJ Hilton and parents must be present too. The kids were briefly taught the techniques of memorizing data in a fun and easy way. It’s a prelude and introduction to a 4-day seminar.
The big girl ain’t too eager to attend but she had to attend anyway! Cass was the most excited and she really enjoyed every bit of the workshop.
We reached PJ Hilton very early and waited for over 30 minutes before the workshop commenced.
At the end of the workshop, the kids who were in another room were brought in to join the parents. Several kids were randomly picked to ‘purge out’ verbally a list of 30 items that they were told to remember. The kids who were picked could spill out the list of 30 items that they went through a moment ago, in exact order of the list — in ascending and descending order. We were awed! When we left the room, Alycia, Sherilyn and Cass could also recite the list of 30 items that they were briefly shown… in exact order of the list and backwards as well.
Yes, I was awed and was very eager to sign up our girls for the seminar.
But the cost was yet to be revealed! A-ha…
When the coach revealed the price of the 4-day seminar to the parents, my jaw dropped when I saw the price on the whiteboard!! My enthusiasm slowly withered. I thought that the most it would cost would probably be about RM800 per kid but I was so outdated. Perhaps? It was a whopping 5-figure price and later slashed to a 4-figure price — RM5,000+ per kid!! Though I am pretty convinced that my girls would benefit from the 4-day intense seminar, the price turned me off instantly! If only we have the budget for this seminar for our girls, I would have no qualms and would have signed up at the end of the workshop.
After the workshop, hubby joined us for hi-tea at the coffee house of the hotel.
This chocolate fondue has been the highlight of the coffee house hi-tea for over 10 years. I still have pictures of Alycia who was about 4 years old and Sherilyn about 2+ years old in similar poses as done by Cass today (picture below). Those picture were taken 8 years ago, before Cass came along. How time flies!
Cass has been bugging me to bring her for a Halloween party. She is obsessed with dressing up as a vampire. Today she colored her lips with chocolate and pretended to be a vampire chomping down her plate of sinful desserts 😀
The haze has eased off a wee bit today. Schools throughout Malaysia will be reopened tomorrow, yipee!! I still very much prefer the girls to be in school. School for girls = me time. I regain my sanity each day during my peaceful quiet mornings. Only SAHMs and WFHMs would truly understand this statement!
