JMC stands for Junior Music Course by Yamaha Music School. It is meant for kids aged ~ 5 years old… So, at the end of each level (this time being the 3rd time), there will be a mini concert performed by all the students.. All students need to participate in a group singing/dancing session and a percussion performance.. on top of that, every student would play 2 repertoires and to sing / dance a song by themselves… Of course, the best part of this whole event is the gift exchange…
So, as a tradition, Mommy and HY would prepare some souvenirs for his beloved teacher and friends ahead of the event.. A nice sheep inspired by a facebook post for the teacher, a collage to illustrate the 4 seasons and button bookmarks were the end products of this exercise…
The best piece of art would be the gift for his beloved teacher, Ms Ow, who has encouraged and challenged him to do better since the start of his musical journey in Yamaha…
So for the song, titles Songs of the Seasons… Mommy and HY made a collage as a prop for his sing/dance session.. Here you go, all 4 seasons at the same time.. 🙂
Last but not least, not to miss out his “fighting comrades” a.k.a his classmates, the button bookmarks….
And here is the satisfied look after few days of hardwork [of course the sweaty look is for another reason which has nothing to do with this “exercise”.. :)]
Deepavali Festival brings a lot of joy to people around us… we can hear fireworks in our Neighbourhood, houses being light up in this Festival of Lights and the best thing for school going children, it’s a LOONNG weekend 😊😊.. to us personally there is another special meaning, i.e. The birth of our second boy😍
So since this is a holiday for the boys, Mommy has made the pancake with them.. so the boys were in charge of cooking the pancake, after the dough was prepared by Mommy…
So, these pancakes ended up in the following shapes and pattern… 😄😄
8 months after the unprecedented home birth of our beloved princess, she could finally taste the fruit of her own “Labour”! Let me explain further… 😊
Weeks after her delivery, we planted her placenta in a pot and planted it with a pomegranate tree. As the tree grew, we could see how it was feeding on the “nutrients” of her placenta. In Oct 2016, we manage to harvest the 1st fruit!
So Mommy gave her the juice (a little sour), mixed with some dragon fruits (sweet) and she finish it!
We were so proud of her and thankful to God for sending her to us… hope this symbolic and special tree would keep bearing fruits and grow healthily… 😍
We’ve bought a bunch of bananas and basically the boys love this fruit but the phlegm that usually builds up later is just unbearable.. So, mommy came up with the banana choc chip cake with them and it’s a big hit at home.. 🙂
Here are some pics of the cake in the making and the final product.. YUMMY (my personal favourite too.. )!!
