Something to learn from kids...

While watching my kids performed during the rehearsal as well as the actual event and service during my church's 50th anniversary celebrations over the long weekend, I must said we have a thing or more to learn from them. Without any stage fright, they just come onto the stage and did what the church teachers had taught them to a beautiful singing and dancing performances. Unlike us adults, we tend to at least if not more, some stage fright before a social event. Definitely, they never think so much and just go out and do what they have learned, even though they may make a mistake or two.  

It was a busy weekend as after the rehearsal and the actual event, we drove off to the malls and reached home late. Though it was fun attending events as well as going around, we finally had a rest day on Sunday and we only went out for an afternoon coffee break. I truly enjoyed my church's service and celebration very much but it's also nice to wind down on a lazy afternoon.

Mushroom soup for my kid ... strange he wanted to have soup in the late afternoon.... hahaha
It's been a while my little princess never ordered her strawberry short cake and there she is again...

I also had some as she can't finished all
My wifey and I shared these kaya toasts while we trying to finish up the kids' meal.

And, Americano for both of us
Have a good week!

  1. Their inhibitions always stem from the adults!!! Typically Asian adults, parents and teachers included, are not as enthusiastic and encouraging as those western ones overseas - all too worried about "face" and losing it....or they're too busy making money, no time for this "nonsense", don't waste their time.

    1. STP - Yeah, they begin to 'unlearn' when they grow up , beginning with the peer pressure and then later, work pressure.

  6. There is a lot to learn from our children. They are simple thinking and less worry. Just yesterday our pastor was talking about leading simple life and be content with what we have. ;)

    Your girl is growing up to be a very beautiful girl. Lovely afternoon snack with your family.

  8. Nowadays, sometimes even kids are not allowed to be themselves. Got so much pressure.

    Glad to know yours are doing well. :)

    1. Lina - yeah, some teachers and parents controlled very tight and not much freedom for them to express themselves.

  9. I would say that some kids are just born with natural flair in public performance and speaking.
    I often wondered why I was brave since I was a kid till today (?) I find it just a natural courage
    that needed no coaxing at all. I first took the mike at 8 years old and spoke on the school's stage telling them a poetry! After that I told stories at 10 years old and conducted drama plays at 12 years old. It was even a horror play using my mum's bedsheets camouflaged as ghosts! In the end I went into TV after being spotted by talent scouts. Nothing to brag but just sharing that I thought it has something to do with in-born.

  13. I agree every day there is something new from the kids.

    The strawberry shortcake looks very yummy. I am not a huge fan of strawberry but don't mind eating as dessert.
