Google plus is confusing. I’m trying to link, from youtube, G+, and wordpress,… but its not working!!!
The girls got a new pet rabbit, courtesy of Daniel Creative School Bazaar. It’s white with black eyes and ears (kinda like Panda), but we don’t know if it’s a buck or a doe.
Although I protested on having more pets in the house, this little bunny just caught our family’s attention. Maybe it’s new, or maybe it has super hypnotic bunny power. Whatever it is, it has become the family’s new main attraction.
We haven’t got a cage for Snowie yet, so we put her in a temporary box, and went out for dinner.
When we came back, Snowie was missing. We looked for her frantically, and found her submerged in a bucket of liquid dishwasher, with only her nose and mouth sticking out, gasping frantically for air.
It was a case of emergency, so we quickly got Snowie out, wash away the dishwasher liquid, and dried it gently with a hairdryer. We the left alone her in her box, curled up in a ball, after realising we did all that we could at that moment.
I was afraid for the worst. Big Sis and Lil C said a little prayer for Snowie and went to bed.
The first thing next morning, the girls checked on Snowie, and they quickly woke me up, saying it’s ok. Snowie survived!!
Somehow this curious bunny jumped out of the box, explored the house and manage to jump into that bucket.
After last nights ordeal, I learnd a few interesting character from the girls and mommy…. Heeheehee, but that story is for another blog post.
Here is Big Sis with the Bunny Who Survived The Dishwasher Soap.
One of the things I still remember from my high school years is Oxymoron. An oxymoron is a figure of speech that combines contradictory terms. The reason I still remember this is because I had a great english teacher in Puan Julia, and it kinda stick. I hope I can teach this to Big Sis and Lil C.
Anyway, here are some examples of Oxymorons.
Props to you Puan Julia.
A lot of Lil C’s friends wanted to see this video, so here it is. Taken during Cambridge School Semarang graduation ceremony 2011. Enjoy!
Last december, Big Sis school had a year end bazaar event, held in their school. This bazaar was organized by the teachers of Daniel Creative School and also their students. They also tend to their booth/counter/corner after weeks of preparations, and I must say that its very well organized. Attendance was small at first, but as soon as its hits 9 am, heavy people traffic (ie parents) are coming in by the droves.
Check out some of the counters:
Nail arts counter Design & Technology counter
Games Counter Futsal Corner
Pet Corner Computer game room
Now the interesting part of this bazaar was the “monetary” currency used. they did not use any real money, but instead they had their own monetary denomination called the Danz. This kind of concept is almost similar to Kidzania in Jakarta.
Now, the students get to “earn” the Danz by accumulating points throughout the year. Which means, if you behaved well in class, do homeworks, respect class rules, and also have good school attendance,…. you will get a lot of extra points. At the end of the year, the points are converted to Danz.
Now for sure, not all children are the same, some may not have as many points to convert. So, in order to get more Danz, they get to “Work” for it. Now check out these flyers or jobs available, with their pay as well. (Very cute and nicely done)
On that day itself, parents are allowed to buy the Danz, but is limited to 15 Danz for students. Now this award system or concept will teach the students the importance money value. It also encourages the students to do well in school throughout the year. Now I did saw some parents and grandparents, trying to Buy the Danz for their children. But fortunately, the teacher in charge strict and will not cave in to the pressure of the parents.
Mommy was running the Design and Technology booth, where as Big Sis worked at computer lab. I know I’m biased but i have to say that Big Sis did well in school, hence she got a lot of Danzs. But it appears she’s not really into shopping, so she gave all her Danz to Lil C. Now LilC is the one that spent all the Danz… Lol!
It was really exciting to see all the character that emerges during this bazaar. Some students will work ghard to make a “sale”, some would just run away from their responsibility.
Good Job students and teachers. You all did a very good job.
