The last minute decision to celebrate Teacher's Day in Jonathan's school wasn't a wrong one I made.

Jonathan enjoyed it. H said it went well. I thank God for giving me strength to do it. Coupled with a few good friends who were there to help me. we had a good time. I could see from the stage that the teachers and those who attended had a good time. Praise the Lord.'s how I looked that day. Picture taken by a good friend with excellent photography skills.

Did the t-shirt myself...ironed on the day itself..It says "Teacher's Day Host 2007"

Look at this big nostrils!!! Aiyo!!! hahaha. Love the hair? Got it for $20.
Sunshades are cutout of cellophane paper, only 60 cents


When I was a relief teacher more than 20 years ago, I got more than 20 red pens! The most useful present for any pens...haha.

Now, it's different.

The day before Teacher's Day, the shops down at Tampines Mart were packed with children and their parents. Picking presents from a variety of gifts displayed outside the stores. There were gift bags of teddy bears, a pencil holders, artificial roses, stationary sets, all yelling "Buy Me!" hahaha.

Kids today have spending power...from their parents' pockets. And from the way they were buying, you will think they are trying to outdo each other....whose present is better than mine? Mine looks nicer than yours.

Well...that's just my thought.

They want to thank and show their appreciation to the teachers for all their hard work. Me as a parent also wanted to show appreciation.

For Jonathan, it is a totally different way of doing it. But we're glad we did the teachers and therapists their gifts.
