Why You Should Encourage your Kids to Play Sports

It’s true what they say, that nothing can quite compare to the smell of fresh air, first thing in the morning. 50 years ago, parents were always telling their kids to go outside and make new friends, but in this day and age, that just doesn’t happen anymore. Now kids have smartphones, all of the games that they could ever want and more. This can make it hard to get them to go outside and have some fun. Sport is one of the best ways for you to encourage your kids to get out there and have some physical activity, and it is also a great way for you to encourage them to meet new friends as well!

Self-Esteem

When kids are out there playing sport, this can really help them to boost their self-esteem. It is also great for their confidence. They are being given the chance to score certain points or even to perfect their skills along the way. When your child is able to accomplish this target, they will soon realise that they can achieve anything and this is a great way for you to help kids if they are shy or even if they have a problem socialising with others.

Happiness

Children are made to play. When physical activity and exercise is underway, the endorphins that are in the body trigger and release, which helps to give you a very positive feeling. Sport is a very good way for you to do this and it is almost guaranteed that if your child is playing sport as part of a team then they will certainly have the time of their lives when they are out and on the field. If you are not sure which sport is right for your child, then why not consider taking them to a soccer academy? This is one of the best ways for you to pair your child with other beginners who may not know the ins and outs of the sport.

Social Skills

When your child participates in a sport, you will find that their social skills develop and you will also find that they can quickly learn things such as leadership, how to build a team and even how to communicate as well. This is an essential skill for later in life and it can also help them to broaden the amount of life skills that they have as well. The best thing about a team sport is that not only is your child learning to play as a group, but they are also learning to play with others and how to listen to their teachers. They will experience another form of discipline and this is one of the best ways for you to teach them how to respect authority and even how to listen when they are being spoken to.

Sport is a great way for you to boost your child’s happiness and it is also a great way for you to really show them how they can branch out and become better at what they do!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
