"Freedom to live and to think about life for its own sake is important and even essential to a child. Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned." -John Holt.

Grandma's birthday bash, Melaka 25 September 2010
It was a short and sweet drive to Air Keroh, Melaka, which took 2 hours. We put up at Kings Apartment-hotel.. A cozy and affordable place for a big group like us, 19 people! It has a small wading pool but enhui didn't get to splash on.
Coffee-tea making set and complimentary first 6 bottles of water. Right- living room
First room and its attached bathroom. (the toilet flush malfunctioned but rectified by housekeeper immediately)
The second and third room. All rooms have attached bathroom.
Mom's birthday cake. I am the one who hold the fondant figurines with both thumb and index fingers! We have had a fabulous time, figuring out who was who and everyone seems to admire these figurines and had a good laugh about us (my siblings and I vs figurines). Mom is the one in red dress!
