On Friday, the mil cooked a big pot of pumpkin chicken porridge and a big pot of ‘tau kok lup’ (a dish consisting of long beans, carrots, pork, prawns, preserved radish; all diced) to go with the porridge before leaving KL for Ipoh to attend a wedding dinner. The hubs drove back to Ipoh the next day to attend the wedding dinner. So I spent the weekend alone with the girls to do some quiet revision with Cass.
This year’s October has been a very busy month for the girls and me. Alycia’s PT3 exam has just concluded; as she’s in a Chinese Independent high school, she has another compulsory exam (UEC) to sit for, which will commence from next Monday for a week. Sherilyn’s finals also starts next Monday and but she won’t have much time to revise as this Dancing Queen will be away the entire Sunday on the eve of her exam for a dance competition. Cass’ finals started today.
Thank goodness this little brat started to get just a tad motivated on the eve of her final exam! Well, better late than never.
Just nine days ago I realized that there’s no more BM workbook for Cass to practise. I have finished revising the BM text book with her and she has also finished all the BM workbooks and test papers that I had bought for her. So I made a quick trip to Popular Bookstore and got her another BM workbook. Cass is pretty weak in her BM and needs lots of drilling on it. I didn’t really think that she could complete the entire workbook consisting of 9 assessments in 9 days but she did! On the eve of her BM finals yesterday (Sunday), she did a marathon of exercises and completed the entire workbook, plus marked the exercises herself as I was too busy. I was out chauffeuring the two older girls the whole of Saturday and did not have much time on Sunday.
Yesterday we snacked on mum’s freshly prepped boiled curry leaves chickpeas while revising. The hubs brought it back from Ipoh. Mum has been trying out new recipes everyday using her brand new Phillips pressure cooker. And she’s gifting me a brand new Phillips pressure cooker for Christmas! She’s trying out her new toy so that I can attend her tutorials during the December school hols. Thank you mummy 😘
