Once upon a time – NBC

Once upon a time…life was simple and purrfect.

In a twinkling of an eye, I’m all grown up.  
And I had to attend the school’s orientation.

We were told to queue at the school hall like forever.

Then, the teachers took us for a school tour.

Yesterday was the fist day of school.
(Oopsie.., I should have kept my mouth closed
– my two front teeth are missing!)

No worries, Mom..  I’m all ready for Primary One.

Hmmm…it’s time to pay attention and try to look serious.

The part I love most about school is break time.

That’s all folks. Mewry Mewlodies!

PLANTastic CactUS!

It’s a scorcher!
It’s been unbearably hot and humid
for more than a week now.
My daughters thought it would be cool
to have their very own cactus
since it feels like we’re living in the desert.
My 11-year old chose the moon cactus,

just like her personality – reticent and artistic.
And my 6-year old picked one
that I do not even know what it’s called.

It’s a nice-looking succulent –  fresh and pleasant,
that compliments her carefree and vibrant nature.
They both have such distinct personalities
like day and night.
I bet the little one will never stop
annoying her big sister.
And I wish for big sister loads of patience
to endure the never-ending nonsense.
But I pray they’ll grow to be
confident and resilient
yet gentle and kind,
always loving and caring for each other,
that they’ll show up in good times
and times of dry spell in life.
Alone, a cact-I.
Together, a cact-US.
May they be bosom friends forever!

Parenthood…It’s about guiding the next generation, and forgiving the last.
