Scenerio In The School....

IT WAS AN OPEN DAY in my son's school yesterday whereby all parents have to go to the school to meet up with the teachers and at the same time getting the report cards from them...

As I was walking slowly past the school gate into the compound, I was surprised to see ladies, or should I say, mothers everywhere and these were the remarks that I heard as I passed them by...

Scenerio A-Mummy that walked fast

Mummy : .....Ok, today onwards, no more computers and handphone........hear me..no more!!

Son : Aw...aw... how can mum....no..no........ (grumbling away)

(I was thinking, hmmm..must be no good results)

Scenerio B-Mummy that lingered

Mummy 1 in loud voice : What did your son get ah? My son's position in the whole form is 35th la.. not that good also..... (wah, like that also not good ah??)

Mummy 2 responded : Not bad ma... my son is also around there............

(hmmm....not bad, these 2 mothers comparing their sons with each other)

Scenerio C - Yours truly here...

I walked up to the teacher, said good morning and sat down...

Teacher : Oh, your son is ........... he needs to pay more attention to these subjects... (pointed out a few subjects).....He can still catch up...there are 4 months more to go before the finals...

Me : Yeah, if less computer and less sms, he CAN SURELY do much better.....

Then Teacher looked at my son and said : When your mother can sacrificed so many years for you, can't you sacrifice JUST 4 months to do well for your exam?

Me : (speechless... so touchy)
Son : (smiling and nodding his head)

On the way out, I was thinking about the scenerios earlier, I feel kind of amused.. ... Should I be walking out fast or should I be lingering around to talk to other mothers??? Well, I walked out fast .... not because of his results .....but to rush back to the office!

As for my son, he is big enough to understand ... and if he doesnt, I hope he will read this blog... :))

  5. aiya...just encourage and motivates him, and let him have a balance schedule. 60% study, 20% sports, 20% leisure kinda thing. Marks and IQ not everything, EQ more important.

  7. Hi thanks for dropping by my site. With regards to your question about my "Money Domain"- It is actually my Website about Money or business Walk Through Money Online Journal..

    About grabbing opps from PPP, I used to have the same problem as you do when my blog/domain doesn't have PR(Page Rank)- Give it sometime for your blog to get PR, but make sure to regularly login to your PPP account. You'll probably get lucky to get few opps once in a while.
