My Little Excuse : Afraid of Monster

I had my music lesson last night. Mami was looking forward for yesterday to see if I would cry in Yamaha Class again when I am called out to sing. What do you think?

Yes, I cried again. I just could not hold on to my tears. My teacher was understanding enough and called another friend to hug me and sang with me. I stopped crying when my friend came out with me to sing.

Did Mami caned me at home? I told Mami that I did sing. Mami said that the deal was to sing alone. So, she wanted to cane me.

I immediately told her "Mami, I want to tell you the truth why I cried. You said that you would not cane me if I tell the truth (this was from other incident when he wanted to lie to me). So, I shall tell you the truth."

Mami replied that she would consider after hearing from me. I said "Mami, I did not want to sing because if I did, the monster would come and eat my friends. Then, there would be no more music class." I also told Mami that I wasn't scared of singing. I feel it is boring to sing. I don't like to sing. I only liked to play the electone.

Dadi heard this conversation in the car on the way home. He said he would give me 100 marks for imagination.

Did Mami caned me in the end? No, she did not. She gave me one last warning and if I ever cry again, she would cane me. She told me that she was disappointed that I lied about the monster. She asked me if I believed that monsters are real and I shaked my head. I knew it was just an excuse and it was a lie. I said sorry and Mami gave me a hug.

Cheeky Me

Mami wanted to take photographs of my cheeky looks. Did not know what "cheeky" meant. So, I tried my best to just smile....

Shy to sing

I am not shy to sing at home, but I am very shy to sing elsewhere.

Mami was very displeased with me yesterday. Perhaps I should use another word instead "displeased". I believe Mami was very angry with me yesterday.

I had my music lesson in Yamaha Music Centre last night. The teacher had already pre-empted us the previous week that we had to sing solo for the song "La-Di-Da", along with the actions. I did know how to sing, but I refused to go out alone to sing in front of all my friends. I ended up crying in class.

At the beginning, Mami comforted me and told me that she would accompany me to the front. She did, but I just could not stop crying. I refused to open my mouth.

My music teacher was so understanding. She hugged me and asked me to sing without doing any actions. I continued to close my mouth as soon as the music started to play.

Mami reminded me that if I continue to cry, I would be caned at home. I understood Mami because I had cried  many times during my music lessons here before. Mami had earlier told me that if I were to cry without any good reasons, she would cane me at home. Most of the time, I would cry due to over sensitivity. Despite me knowing that I would be caned later, I continued crying until the end of the class.

Once we arrived home, Mami caned me once on my left leg. She told me that I would have to continue practising this song at home and would be required to sing this song next week during my music lesson. If I do not sing again, I would be caned again after class. I cried and agreed with her.

I guess Mami caned me because of my stubbornness. This is not the first time singing in front of the class alone. But this time, I just did not want to do so.

My first Lego set

This is my first big boy Lego set. I've always owned Lego Duplos, but this is the first Lego bricks for me.

I chose this set to be my very first collection. Cool leh..... This is my Lego Dino Triceratops Trapper.

I do not want to be an old boy

Yesterday, my Ah Mah came into the bathroom while I was taking my bath. She picked up a few strand of hair and jokingly told me that it was mine. She did not want to admit that it was hers.

I immediately replied her "I do not want to waste my hair. Later I will be an old boy". She laughed and understood what I meant. I would not want my hair to fall off. I associate baldness to being old.

Is exam stress worth it?

My Benjamin Kor Kor is anxious over his exams next week. Meanwhile, I am still happy-go-lucky without any exam stress. Why? Hooray to my preschool! We don't have exams.

Of late, my Kor Kor and I have been playing with our Legos. We love the Dinosaur series which Ah Kim bought for Kor Kor last Christmas. This is what we have been playing with over the past few days at home......

Yesterday, Kor Kor asked Mami if he would receive any presents if he did well in his exams. Mami asked Kor Kor what he wanted and here it is...... the big present which Kor Kor has been dreaming off.

My Kor Kor has expensive taste. It is certainly very expensive. It cost more than RM500.

So, Mami made a deal with him. If Kor Kor managed to get the top 3 of 4 subjects, she would buy this for him. Kor Kor would have to score in BM, English, Maths and Science. If he doesn't, then Kor Kor would have to buy a smaller set of Lego Dinosaur. Kor Kor's alternate selection was this.....

Immediately after Mami's conversation with Kor Kor, I hugged Mami and asked "what about me?" I love to buy one too. Mami said that I would have to wait till Christmas and I told Mami that I really loved the Triceratops Dino Lego. So, I showed Mami the picture of what I wanted.

Shaun Shaun's selection

Mami did not promise me anything, but she said that she may buy if I was willing to sit for an exam prepared by Mami. I asked her if the exam would be an easy exam or difficult one. She replied "It has to be a difficult one because it is an end of year exams".

Sigh....I can't believe that I would have to sit for an examination just to buy this Triceratops Dino Lego.

Mami told me it was up to me to decide. She doesn't mind if I didn't want to take her exams. At least she gets to save her money buying such expensive presents.
