Leadership or Keeping "Lowship"

Sports day is around the corner... i cant wait for it to be over.. its not that i m the one going for practices, running and puffing, but i seem to be involved when my 3rd precious is...she is so dedicated to her cheerleading team and she ends up doing everything..almost everything..sigh... i didnt know she is so serious in it till yesterday, when i fetched her from school, the first thing i noticed were her face and tearful eyes...after much coaxing, she only managed to tell me bits of here and there..and from the pieces i gathered, she is really stressful about this cheerleading thing.. firstly, we hv to look for the uniform for the 13 girls, from black skirt and red tshirts, pompom papers to nylon stockings...2ndly, she has to arrange their sizes and collect some upfront money, each estimating around 50rm...and today, today, this evening, sigh....she came back to tell me that one 50rm is missing from her pocket...haiyah....what shall i do? instead of paying 50rm, i hv to fork out another missing 50rm...she felt very bad too about losing it, what to do...she has so much on her sleeve, more than she can bear, 3rdly, she has to arrange the formation and all the movements and with 13 girls, i feel it is no joke for her being 14yrs and so petite, how much can she takes...she should dedicate some of the duties to a few others... i really hope this event will not be eating her too much of her....
When i see her down and out, i feel really sorry for her, wish i can do more for her, but what more can i do other than being a driver and getting those attire ready?? ...so it makes me wonder...
is it better for one child to keep a low profile in school (as i was those days) or should one take up challenges and experience some leadership skills the hard way??
anyway, i feel, being a leader or not, one should not be expecting too much about winning or not, it is more on cooperating, blending and clicking with each other that is more important... after all, pride will not pay but humility will...(by the way, am i talking sense??)

  1. Money missing is a very big thing for kids. I remembered I had a similar experience.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
