One of the Activities

One of the Activities

After this trip, i also understand that Nuns are not just a nun who pray from day til night, clean the temple and meditating..  Nowadays, Nuns are mostly graduates.. they have their own professions.. some are architects – they plan to build Temples, Schools, Universities.. some are IT expert – they manage digitize JingWen (Prayers) projects… some are Principals, some are managers…

I also learned that 星云大师XinYun is a very intelligent and generous person who is already 80+ years old and still haven’t stop building facilites everywhere in the world for everyone. He is still very busy with his daily routine, write Newspaper articles to enlighten people, helping people.

P

The kids' rooms are so tidy.. i feel so paisei 😛

After hearing stories from some volunteers, I realised that I am one of the Luckiest person on earth… My eyes were full of tears when i entered the orphanage… I sobbed when I started to share with the rest of how i felt..

Upgraded Ben!

Time flies.. he is now a primary school kid!

At first, the school didn’t allow him to go to Primary 1 as he will only be 6 yrs old in March. We told him that he might not be able to go to Primary 1, and he said “I think is a good thing, because I’m scared to go to Primary 1, I might not be able to find my friends” I was surprised to hear wat he said as all the while i tot he is a very brave kid. But somehow the school decided to let him proceed to Primary 1.

I bought his Uniform from Hua Ho, then I bought the Badge at $1 from School and stitched on his plain uniform. We still save about $2 per uniform and the quality of the uniform from Hua Ho is better with hard collar. As usual, he likes to pose…

wj

Right before heading to school, we realised that we forgot to teach him on how to pee with his new pants.. is quite a challenging task, cos there is hook, zip and he is wearing underwear inside. I have no idea what’s the best way, should he just do it by unzipping the pants? How to get the “bird” out if he is wearing underwear? or should he remove the whole pants first? Luckily dad was at home..

wj2

All His ex  kindergarden-classmates moved to the same class as him in Primary 1, and hence he was very happy and started talking about BEN 10 stuff with his friend.. I sat beside him to wait for his teacher, and he pushed me away.. 😦

wj3

This is a much more decent scene compared to the 1st day when i went to Primary One.  My sister went to my classroom with a Belt and span it like a cowgirl. She wanted to ensure that everyone in the class know I have a big sister so that no one dare to Bully me.. I was nicer than my brother, i didn’t push her away, in fact I was so proud of her. But think about it now.. is really funny.. Haha..  imagine this…

Who dare to bully my little sister?!

Who dare to bully my little sister?!

Anyway, my sister is always there to protect me and take good care of me… so Sis, please get well soon!!
