• Unified Examination Certificate (UEC)

    Well, I did not arrange for the twins to study at Kuen Cheng High School, a Chinese independent school as most Chinese would refer to.  Will blog about Chinese High School another time. The twins chose to go there, after they sort of made their own research and findings on the comparison between Chinese High School, nation school, private school and international school.  Of course they would want international school, however, the parents budget does not permit. So, they chose Kuen Cheng.  Of the many Chinese High Schools in Klang Valley, they picked Kuen Cheng because of – many of their school mates would be.  Anyway, many of them are…

  • Spending Sunday

    We supposed to have a lunch date with my mother and brother, then turned out that my brother was under the weather a bit on that day.  So, we spent the time to hunt some revision books for our twins instead. 带孩子们到书店。#hisamueltan #travelgram #travel #petalingstreet #kualalumpur #heritage #heritagebuilding #oldbuilding A post shared by Samuel Tan (@hisamueltan) on May 16, 2016 at 4:27am PDT They are both in the Chinese High School, which means the choice is rather, limited.  How limited?  Like only 2 places we could find the revision books and work books in Malaysia – DJZ in Kajang as well as KL Commercial Book Co located in Jalan Sultan,…

  • Blessed Chinese New Year 恭贺新喜

    Many things like traditions, require quite a bit of persistent in maintaining them. Also the good habit, does not come by nature.  Requires constant enhancement, never give up kind of approach, in order to get things going. I see for the past few days it have been rather difficult times for me as a parent, facing challenges which I wish God would have lifted or taken away from me, just like Jesus told His Father in Luke 22:42 “Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” What caught my attention is the second part.  We…

  • Listen to Parent’s Teaching

    Reading Proverbs 1:8-19 this morning, the first verse that spoke to me:- Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.  ~ Proverbs 1:8 Very often the parenting is looking on father for the teaching, but Proverbs has reminded us that the teaching from mother is equally important.  Although in the old & and new testaments have illustrated that man is the head of the household.  That does not mean, the head would know everything nor able to provide any teaching or solution to the kids.

  • PAPA Blames Wanita :-)

    Persatuan Agensi Pembantu Rumah Asing Malaysia (PAPA) has blamed Wanita MCA for opposing the importing of Chinese maids from China as the acts is being terms as “selfish” and “loss of confidence” on the husbands. If Indonesian maids can be sexually abused or raped in Malaysia, what makes one think it would not happen to Chinese maids? Kudos to Wanita MCA and I stand by you. Again, we are happier with you (foreign maids).
