New Dish #4 - Deep fried ribs and Acar Fish @ 3 September 2009

Misha has been staying at home since Wednesday (2 September) because her school was closed for one week. Reason?? High percentage of students having flu and because of the spreading of H1N1 again, the school has decided to close primary school.

Since no school, Misha has been quite busy at home - the students are given homeworks for 3 and 4 september - quite alot actually and besides school homeworks she has to do lots of exercises on her theory since her exam will be held next month. Anyway, I think it is good since all the works will keep her busy :)

Ok .. let's look at the new dishes I have tried :-

deep fried ribs

Acar fish
I will post the recipes here when I am free. Till then, take care :)

Herbal Duck Noodles Soup :)

Every weekends are very busy for me. Once of the things that I have to do is sit down and plan for the following weekdays' dinners. I really do find that it is quite difficult to plan as I really do not know what to cook. Anyway, last weekend, Misha did tell me that she wanted to eat noodles and I have decided to try "Herbal Duck Noodles Soup" then.

Conclusion is that the soup did come out delicious and both bosses love it very much and requested me to cook again next time :)

If you are interested to try out this, do get the recipe from here :)

School Lunch @ 27 August 2009

Today's lunch is simple - just some grilled chicken breat and sambal fish. Since I did not include any vegetables, I have given her 2 portions of fruits :)

I also prepared Egg Tart for her snack. Hopefully, she will finish all. Hubby told me that Misha will definately finish what I have prepared for her since she loves my food very much .. well .. hopefully she able to finish all.

Today will be a more relax day - no extra activities BUT still will have lots of homeworks from school and she has to do ABRSM Past year questions in personal capacity since her exam will be held during the 1st week of October. Imagine, sitting for Grade 2 but only started learning since late June... hopefully she can pass :)

School Lunch @ 24 August 2009

School started two days ago ... but I did not prepare any lunch for her because for the first few days, she actually need to "take care" of her new friend-ie a new student.

Misha has to bring the girl around and accompany her until she is comfortable with the school environment :)

But yesteday, she told me that if possible, she would like me to prepare some lunch for her so that she can eat rather than eating sandwich from the school :)

Anyway, I have prepared something simple for her so that she can finish them quickly :)

Let's have a look :)

one of the two new lunch bag :) She loves KUROMI now ... dunno why :)

For snack time and lunch time ..

Rice with some sambal ikan bilis/fried minced meat with potatoes and some veges; a small portion of oranges; sweet corn (in the blue wrapper); some junks! and Mr Juicy orange juice :)

That's her lunch for the day - yeah .. I supposed to decorate the rice .. with whatever cute things but .. NOOOO time!! I actually woke up at 730am .. which is considered late. Anyway, will try to do better next time :0

Till then.. bye!

Misha - Achievement

Something I think wrote to jot down.

Misha had passed her ABRSM Grade 2 Practical Exam - Flute ! She passed the exam with Merit even though she only started to practise consistently 2-3 months before the examination.

Frankly, I will expect her to pass only BUT pass with a merit does come as a surprise. Anyway, Misha, you did well ! Mummy and Daddy are very proud of you!

So, now she has to tell me what she wants as a rewards. Hahahaha .. . nothing comes free hor - kena reward her pulak :)

What time is it? Summer time!!!!!

Yeah yeah .. High School Musical song! Been listening to this particular song almost everyday now since Misha loves it so so much :)

Misha started her summer holidays today - two weeks earlier than scheduled. Why? The HK government actually "requested" all kindergardens,primary schools and child day care to close yesterday because there is a "serious" case of H1N1 found in one of the school here. Was told that there is about 10-11 cases of H1N1 found in that one school ... anyway, for precaution sake - all kindy, primary school and child care MUST close for 2 weeks - ie 2 weeks before summer holidays!

In another word, Misha will have about 10 weeks CUTI!! 10 weeks!! What to do .. need to plan but one thing I knew is that she has to do maths workbook everyday hahaha that's our normal ritual during summer holidays :)

Ok lar .. wish me good luck - anyway, I am sure that I will have a fruitful 10 weeks with her :) Till then, ta ta :)

Report Card - Second Semester @ Y4WK

5 June 2009

YES! Misha received her report card today ... well, not that excited lar since we already expected what teacher will write in the card:)

Basically, she is doing quite well in school. Her knowledge on most of the subjects are Outstanding except Chinese-consistent. So, Misha ... must put extra efforts in Chinese, ok?

Well, we hope that she will maintain this standard OR become better when she goes to Year 5 in September.

OH yeah ... something worth record down... :) Her teacher did mention something about her .. let's see .. what she has written :-

"Misha continues to be a principled and hard-working member of our class who can always be depended on the help out with classroom jobs and responsibilities. her enthusiasm towards her learning has continued throughout the year. Although her confidence as a communicator is an asset in many ways, she can sometimes be slightly domineering over less-confident communicators in her group. (Macam lar - my Misha bullies those less confident kids .. hahahaha) She is encouraged to lower her voices at times and give others more opportunities to share their ideas. (Another scarcastic remarks .. hahaha .. Misha told me that she wanted to see teacher so that the teacher can explain to her on this statement as she said that teacher never said that she has LOUD voices .. hahaha). Misha has continued to show commitment to her reading and has now widened her choice of reading materials to include a more varied selection of text types. She has shown improvement in her home-learning reflections and continues to look for ways to improve her understanding and skills"

Anyway, that's all for this round - will need to go to school on 19 June for Student Led Conference where the students need to explain to their parents on selected works that they have done :) And guess what, school will ends on 24 June ... It will be a long 8 weeks holidays!!! SUMMER HOLIDAYS!!!!

School Field Trip to Hong Kong History Museum

The Unit of Inquiry that Misha is doing in school is called "MIGRATION". Basically, the school wanted the students to know why people migrate etc etc etc. This will be their last UoI as school will be closed for the academy year on 24 June (Or 2 weeks earlier, if there is any H1N1 case found in the school).
Since I am the class parent for her class, I have to participate too. I will be going with the students today - to the History Museum. We will be going there by train!!
Hopefully, the batch of students under my case are easy to handle - otherwise havoc ... arghhh. Ok lar .. will blog more next round .. till then, have a good Monday :)

30 April 2009

Misha requested for spaghetti for lunch today. I have prepared the sauce a night before. So, what I need to do in the morning is to boil the spaghetti and decorate it.

Since I have only like 20 minutes to prepare the spaghetti and pack them - I have decided to decorate it with something simple. Cubs came into my mind!

Let's see my cute yet simple cubs!

more things can be done onto the cubs - like color it .. decorate with accessories eg ribbons/tiara etc etc . but .. me lazy hahaha :)
three little cubs sat on a pool of spaghetti :)
Misha's lunch for the day!

That's all for today! Bye!
