"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.

Transformer? 3 November 2010
Hui showed her new discovery of a toy-truck which can be transformed into a robot.
She could transform it really fast and will happily show you as many times as you would like to see it. :)
Truck vs robot.
Hui said 'you can put the arms behind or in front'. When En does it, she would forget one or two parts and Hui would prod her sister with a 'know-it-all' tone! :)
I try to avoid stereotyping mini-Men are from Mars or mini-Women from Venus. Inadvertently, Enhui are able to grasp it from others like "Girls must not climb. Only boys do", "Pink is not for boys" etc :)
