We celebrated my father's birthday on the actual day, 19th August. Always good when it falls on a weekend!
Venue was Extra Super Tanker at Glo Damansara. The food was ok (overall rather salty though) and what I liked best was the duck with mantao. Bro-in-law ordered the food for the night and promptly forgot the details, so we had to guess what we were eating! I didn't take a single food photo.
All of us with the birthday boy!
Hmm somebody is not too happy
The not-happy one
It happened during Ah Mah's birthday last year, and it happened again. She really wanted to blow the candles and just could not reach them! Evidence from slightly earlier....
JE has been mentioning that she can't see the projected words in class. Since we were passing by at the optician...
Now let's see what's happening
Did you get the angle right?
Check properly, now
Oh?? Is that right??
That little busybody.
On JE, the shop guy said the machine does detect some power, but it only gives a rough estimate so he can't tell for sure. And that if he takes her in for the usual eye test, he doesn't think she will be able to tell accurately the point where things are clear or not. He recommended we take her to an eye doctor. And sit down at home with her, sit down and compare what we can see vs what she can.
After half an hour of vigorous effort, the paper is totally blank. I tell her to stop erasing and just leave it, the drawing is fine as long as teacher can tell what it is. (This is just to draw, from the options, which food she likes and which she doesn't like. In the correct box)
Teacher say must draw nice nice!
I cannot, I cannot!
She's in a Chinese school. There isn't all that much homework actually. But if someone keeps getting distracted looking for missing things/ sharpening pencils/ changing the pencil in use/ chatting to other people/ paying attention to everything else that is going on/ constantly erasing whatever she has written or drawn/ crying that she cannot do things... how to finish? Sigh.
