Sundry Time

In my previous post I ‘complained’ about going back to my in-laws due to the lack of cooling system. In this post, I won’t be complaining. Instead I just want to share what my in-laws do. My FIL runs a sundry shop and they live upstairs. Period.

As for Ethan, everything he sees there fascinates him. This is one of them.. Do you know what they are doing here?

    My FIL runs a kindergarten… and has been hunting my head down to help him out in the kindy. *horrified* I adore my FIL to bits… unfortunately, it can't be said the same with my MIL. :(

    cleffairy – Pls!!!!!!!!!!! YOU kenot teach little children!!!! You'll corrupt their innocent mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Horrifying!!!!!!!! lol.. (banyak nya exclamation!!!!!!!!)

  • //

    From my childhood's impressions, those who run sundry shops,mostly are loaded ones,(got money a lot a lot one) but most of them are very simple and down to earth lots too.Ethan was learning how to separate the chaffs from the garlic right? I guess Malay they call durang, in english it is called durang"ing"hey take care now

  • //

    yes, i know what is happening there.. i grew up staying next door to a sundry shop :)

  • //

    *roll eyes at Merryn's statement* Who say I cannot teach little children? LOL… I taught a lot of little children and they happened to excel in English. Unfortunately, it can't be said the same with my Alien. *sigh* So stressful. ppl's kids I can teach, own anak, so susah wanna teach.Let me teach you some history… if you pandai… who is famous with…'Divorce beheaded and die, divorced beheaded survived!'? LOL… can you guess?My 8 years old students knows who is famous wif this. :P Blekksss!

  • //

    Cleff.. I think I still agree with Merryn that you shouldn't teach, or maybe teach, but not let them reading your blog.. muahahha… btw, that's shallots and not garlic la eugene…:DMerryn, you should take Ethan back more often before this kind of sundry shop 'tutup' kedai for good..

  • //

    LOL… too late for that d… I'm already teaching. *pengsan*

  • //

    Those are shallots right? Ethan seemed to be enjoying doing it. So sweet.

  • //

    eugene – Thank you. I tak tau what they call it until now u thought me… 'durang-ing' lol.. cool :D i dunno bout the a lot a lot of money part lah.. tak involve in that.. william got his own money! lol.. hahahahhaa..

  • //

  • //

  • //

    There's nothing like family… Try watching this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IL1ED8CdKFs

    Separating the small red onions from the loose skin by using moving air – that's a good experience for a young child. Seldom nowadays city children get to experience simple things like this.

  • //

    wah, runs a mini market, mciam ni, drinks, junks all can take & whack, no need to pay. hahaha!

  • //

    that captures surely shows how much he's fascinated

  • //

    Bring Ethan there more often. It's a good exposure. I wished I can bring Jonathan to work in my dad's orchard just like what I used to do those days.
