{Review} I Theatre’s The Magic Paintbrush | An Amazing Full Circle

If you haven’t booked your tickets to The Magic Paintbrush yet, please do! This is a most amazing production by I Theatre as it is the finale production for their 15th year Anniversary Celebrations!

Super happy Trio – They love the theatres!

We went to the Drama Centre Theatre on Saturday with no clue what it would be like since it was an entirely new remake, redesigned play from its first staging. And we were totally blown away by the scale of the production!

The Magic Paintbrush was first performed 16 years ago in 2000 and was the inspiration for creating I Theatre as a theatre production company. How apt it is for this year’s 15th Anniversary celebrations to end on a high note with a reworked version of The Magic Paintbrush– I Theatre has come full circle and continues to bring so much joy and inspiration for local children’s theatre.

The play opens with what every parent and school going child would be able to relate to. A young girl preparing for exams and told to study hard, and not just do her best but “Be the Best”!

161027-6732

Shocking revelations indeed for every Singaporean parent to see themselves on stage perhaps? And then the magical journey begins …. when the girl Toni wishes she was someone else, wishes she was Ma Liang who is a poor but talented orphan. She thinks it’s way better not to have parents… and the inexplicable Magic Paintbrush grants her wish…

161027-6914

From there the audience is transported to another world in ancient China, where Toni is now (as she wished) Ma Liang, and she has to fend for herself, to work hard in order to survive and yet having no opportunities to explore her talent in painting because she has no money.

But Ma Liang is given an opportunity of a lifetime to do good, when he is given a Magic Paintbrush ~ Whatever he paints comes to life! Will he use this power to do good or to bring selfish benefits?

161027-7061

Wonderful lively cast that kept the audience excited!

What will he do when faced with personal danger? Will Ma Liang succumb to the threats of the greedy Emperor and his wicked schemes? What happens to Ma Liang?

161027-7132

Loved the beautiful costumes!

The new Magic Paintbrush is extravagant and grand, it is so big scale that even the adults will be captivated. The sets were beautifully designed and so impressive that you may not think it was for children’s theatre. I loved the upbeat music, the beautiful life-sized sets and the amazingly detailed costumes! WOW!!

161027-7100

Impressive stage set

Expect a visual treat from colourful sets and intricate costumes, to puppets and even a segment with black light theatre (which is always a hit with the children).

161027-7112

We enjoyed every bit of the 1.5hours at the Drama Centre Theatre and I think everyone in the audience would agree with me that I Theatre has outdone itself this time! The theatre was lit with laughter through out the play!

Our take way from the play was more than just the theatre fun. I asked Wey what he thought was the moral of the story… and was amazed that he told me “If you have the power to do good, do it. Make someone else happy. Don’t use it just to get more money or be rich, like the wicked Emperor!” Such valuable life lessons delivered in a beautiful play, I hope he keeps forever.

161027-7196

The Magic Paintbrush is indeed a fitting climax to a celebratory year for I Theatre! Once again thank you I Theatre and Congratulations! Thank you for bringing beautiful theatre to brighten the lives of the littlest ones and enchanting yet another generation with music and drama!

{Review} Fee-fi-fo-fum FUN! It’s Jack and the Beanstalk!

Just when I thought that every last fairy tale had been made into a theatre production, I’m surprised yet again that there’s yet one more! Yep, Jack and the Beanstalk is a classic fairy tale which we’ve yet seen on stage until now.

Together with Lyngo Theatre, Act 3 International brings this Giant of a fairy tale to stage at the National Library Black Box Theatre from 6 -18 September 2016.

Jack and the Beanstalk

Everyone knows the classic story about Jack who sells his cow, Milky White, for 5 magic beans that grew and grew overnight to reach a land above the clouds where the Giants live. Now join LYNGO‘s fun storytelling and hilarious exploration of the land of Giants and expect lots of fun surprises and squeals of laughter!

Jack and the Beanstalk

Smiling happy faces at Act 3i and Lyngo Theatre’s Jack and the Beanstalk

We had so much fun at today’s stage performance. The kids were all riveted to what was happening onstage. The set was simple as with the storyline that remained unchanged from the familiar, and yet every bit captivating with the well timed lighting cues and music.

The wonderful acting and performance by just one very energetic engaging actor drew laughter from every corner of the theatre. That is the children’s theatre success of Lyngo ~ One man, all the laughter.

Jack and the Beanstalk

The Tiny house that Jack lives in…

The audience interaction was superb even without asking for anyone to come onstage or purposefully baiting the audience to participate. The atmosphere was so relaxed at the Black Box Theatre this afternoon that the children felt so at ease to shout out their thoughts right from where they sat at every possible moment. Watch for the really Enormous boot, tiny house, snow and showers of silver and gold and some squirts of ‘milk’ for the front seats! A really good show that wastes nothing!

Backstage Workshop Tour

If anything, don’t miss the Backstage Workshop Tour. There are limited spaces and tickets available for this and it’s really really worth doing!

Having fun at the Backstage Workshop Tour. Kids are encouraged to try it out and let their imagination flow

At the backstage workshop, you get the Meet and Greet to meet the man behind the amazing performance. But what’s most precious about this 30 minute workshop is that your kids get to explore theatre behind the scenes.

The children are encouraged to think how each scene is achieved, how and why a prop is made in that way, what lightings are used and why and what they noticed about the music used! I learnt that there were 45 different lighting cues for this short 50minute production! Wow!

Watch this mini-video of parts of the Backstage tour that we so enjoyed and loved!

As a parent interested in the Arts and wanting to cultivate the same love for Arts in my little one, I found this workshop really great creative fun. The kids were given every opportunity to interact with the actor, with the props and with what they had just watched, to explore and imagine.

I could see it really helped Wey put his creative thoughts in place as he thought through the play he just watched and how each scene was achieved.

Creating rain with air pressure!

The discussion was highly interactive as the kids were told and taught how things were done. Everyone even the adults had fun!

Making the audience believe that the boot was really SO HEAVY!! hahaa

So if you can help it, book this segment and stay the extra 30 minutes! No regrets whatsoever!

As the show ended, I couldn’t help but to ask the kiddos what they thought about Jack’s actions, was it right or wrong? Although the fairy tale doesn’t quite give a sense of Jack doing any wrong, and seems to celebrate the fact that he killed the Giant, my take home discussion for Wey was to check out his moral compass despite the fair tale’s presentation.
Jack and the Beanstalk

Presenting Lyngo Theatre and Wey! haha!

I was quite pleased that Wey’s immediate response was that Jack was not right to steal (not just once but actually thrice!) from the Giant. Wey said to me “Mama, being poor doesn’t mean he can steal from the Giant. And because he didn’t work hard for what he stole, he used it up so quickly and had to go back to steal again!” Wow!! Thank you, Wey! So we’re good in that department! hahah! Phew! So, there you have it, a great take home lesson and teaching opportunity for the kids too! 🙂
                                                                                                        .
Don’t miss this great fun opportunity to meet theatre in a fun innovative way with LYNGO, a UK based Children’s Theatre company. Their shows have delighted children for over 10 years, with their inventive use of beautifully designed and handmade ‘theatre toys’ with a genuine approach to playing and interacting with their audience. There is only one more weekend to catch this wonderful production. Book your tickets at SISTIC before the run ends on 18 September 2016!

{Review} Lion City Adventures | Secrets of the Heartlands – by Don Bosco

Don Bosco Lion City Adventures Secrets of the Heartlands
Today, let’s talk about Don Bosco‘s “Lion City Adventures – Secrets of the Heartlands” for primary school children since it’s school holidays now. With the book and some walking around, the kids can really get to know our Singapore towns (8 of them) with bites of history, quirky facts & cool stuffs and also get to solve some mysteries with the members of Lion City Adventuring Club (LCAC) as they go along from town to town.
.
Secrets of the Heartlands is the sequel to Lion City Adventures and it leads to the new title – Island of Legends, published just few weeks ago.
.
Don Bosco Lion City Adventures Secrets of the Heartlands

Together with the members of Lion City Adventuring Club (LCAC), we journey back in time to see how the fascinating heartlands of Singapore have evolved.  Each chapter contains a history of the neighbourhood, information about remarkable people and events and a fun activity. To make things more interesting, children will get to solve puzzles and mysteries as they unravel clues from town to town.

Don Bosco Lion City Adventures Secrets of the Heartlands

The eight (8) neighbourhoods featured include:

  • Kampong Bahru
  • Jalan Kayu
  • Marine Parade
  • Punggol
  • Queenstown
  • Tiong Bahru
  • Toa Payoh
  • Yishun
Lion City Adventures is a very informative and a good guide book on Singapore for primary school children.  Seldom is there a guide book that is published for the purpose of really appealing to the young ones with full-colored print and matchy illustrations that speaks to the little ones.  The font size is pretty good for the eye as well with catchy headers to capture the attention of the young ones.  Notice I am straying away from mini-fonts.  It’s like a sign of “flower eyes”.  Likewise, kids wouldn’t like tiny fonts too.  The layout of the pages is also not too dense such that it makes reading topics related to general interests boring.
.
The “Instant Expert” section listed some information that is so close to heart.  Even I had learnt a bit of facts I never did know (failed the super boring History in Sec 2, you see >.<).  Now that I’m older and wiser, such information becomes more interesting to me and that I am also more motivated to read and learn so as to share with the kids and make general knowledge about Singapore interesting for them.
Don Bosco Lion City Adventures Secrets of the Heartlands

My mum used to tell me about my grandfather sending her and my aunty out to buy 20c of Tock-Tock Mee and how they would steal a bite before they get home. As girls and being the elder ones amongst siblings, they don’t often get equal treatment in their generation.

Lion City Adventuring Club (LCAC) is also connected to the Sherlock Hong Adventures series of books which Jiejie loves so well.   I spotted different titles of the series in her school bag more than a few times by now.  I guess my gut feel was right then – Detective Sherlock Hong going around town to solve different mysteries having a historical link to Singapore’s olden days did attract the kids.  We shared about The Legend of Lady Yue earlier.
.
I like this series of Lion City Adventures personally and thought that the kids would benefit from something more interesting than fact sheets and boring history books.  Before they grow up too fast, becomes less inquisitive, more academic, now is the best time to start them on such little adventure journeys around Singapore while they are still in lower primary.  Ideally, use the book together with field trips for maximum benefits.  Also note that, having one book per child would allow them to develop and read at their own pace.  The kids would be impatient to share a book, especially if there more than two of them in the family.  Right now in June holiday is the best time to plan for field trips with the kids if your family is not travelling.
.

Retail Info

Each copy retails at $15.80.
.
All of Don Bosco’s books can be found at Popular, Kinokuniya and Times bookstores, by the way.  We spotted his books at Times Bookstore, Punggol Waterway during their media launch.  Alternatively, you might like to buy online at http://www.marshallcavendish.com/marshallcavendish/genref/SearchResults.aspx?ti=Lion%20City%20Adventures&is=&au=&im= .

About the Author

His books are created around brave and curious young characters who are forced to face incredible challenges and take on horrid villains. The plots are fast-paced and spiced up with a tasteful dose of imaginative magic.  To find out more, visit his website at www.supercoolbooks.com.

{Review} A Night with Shakespeare in the Park | Romeo and Juliet

Shakespeare In The Park - Romeo & Juliet

This Mother’s Day we decided to do something different … we had a rather unusual date night at the park, plus Shakespeare. Perhaps it was the thrill and exhilaration of doing something different, it felt fun, almost like a first date (haha)… Yup we were on our way to our very first Shakespeare in the Park at Fort Canning!

The hubs is not an outdoor person and we’ve largely never entertained the thought of Shakespeare in the Park for obvious reasons haha…. Singapore’s humid weather is not for the faint hearted.

Shakespeare in the Park Romeo and Juliet

On a rather unusual date with the hubs 🙂

As a Lit student back in my college days, I’d always wanted to catch a Shakespearean play. Back then, the arts scene was very different. There was markedly less support for the arts and probably less like-minded people committed to the arts. When I arrived at Fort Canning park on Sunday evening, I was really taken by surprise. A large crowd had already  gathered at the Gothic Gate way before 6.30pm! Wow!

Shakespeare in the Park Romeo and Juliet

Huge crowds gathering as early as 6pm, braving the humidity and heat for Shakespeare

It made me feel so proud to see Singapore out on a summer’s night coming for a night of Shakespeare 😉 Shakespeare indeed continues to hold his audience 400 years later!

The long queue to get inside was fast moving and picnic mats filled up the entire grounds quickly. We made our way further towards the right side of the stage seeing that most of the front was already filled. (It turns out that was a very good vantage point as most of the play actually took place on the right! So don’t be afraid to move on in and spread your mats without the squeeze!)

Once we got comfortable, we were ready for dinner before the show. The hubs prepared a really good Caesar’s salad, snacks and grapes while Shirley brought along sandwiches and drinks.  We were ready to kick off those shoes and experience our very first Shakespeare in the Park 🙂

Thankfully, it was cooler than imagined and everyone was all set for a fun relaxed night. The grounds was abuzz with friendly chatter, excited conversations and laughter. Friends catching up, couples hand in hand and families having a good time.

Perhaps the greatest love story ever told, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet needs no introduction. A classic tale of sweet forbidden love, the tragedy of a bitter family feud, SRT’s Romeo and Juliet opened to wild cheers from the audience as the skies darkened and the stars came out to play.

Romeo & Juliet

Set in a somewhat modern day city state, the simple stage was brilliantly done with different small sections separated by stairs and height levels plus a centre stage where Juliet’s bed and tomb eventually would be.

Cleverly designed multi-levelled, multi-sectioned stage

This made for easy change of scenes, zooming in for more intimate private moments (balcony scene) between the two lovebirds and zooming out for large scenes (fight scenes). I liked the clever crack running through across the entire stage, reminding the audience about the opposing feuding families we were about to meet.

Thomas Pang was delightful in his role as Romeo. Energetic, polished and spirited, this handsome Romeo would have caused younger hearts in the audience to fall helplessly in love with Romeo that night. 🙂

Thomas Pang and Cheryl Tan sharing a Romeo Juliet moment

Familiar face Cheryl Tan (who played Ivy Chan in Dick Lee’s Beauty World and Little Bo-Frilly in SRT’s Three Billy Goats Gruff) plays Juliet, with her usual vibrant and animated acting as in her previous roles. I would have appreciated a gentler more demure Juliet than the one at the park that night. But perhaps her characterisation was more in line with the modernity that the production was aiming for.

Juliet on her balcony thinking about her Romeo

Ramesh Panicker was every part the important Capulet patriarch, Juliet’s father, and played his role with presence and formality. One clearly got the sense that he was someone not to be trifled with.

Overall, the strong cast kept the entire audience riveted to the developments on stage which were fast paced and none too draggy.

Do also keep a look out for Edward Choy (Goh Keng Swee ~ The LKY Musical) who plays Paris the disappointed suitor, Shane Mardjuki (SRT’s Hello Goodbye) who plays Mercutio the impulsive friend of Romeo and Benjamin Chow (Lim Chin Siong ~ The LKY Musical/ The Troll in SRT’s The Three Billy Goats Gruff),  who plays Benvolio Montague.

Audiences will not have missed the dramatic accompanying music setting the mood of each scene so precisely. From the romantic scenes of the two young star-crossed lovers to the fight scenes as Tybalt challenges Romeo and then the sense of urgency and shock of Mercutio’s death, the music of Ruth Ling set the tone for the play to perfection. Special mention must also be made about the exquisite costumes designed by award winning Moe Kasim, which gave the play a distinctive modern yet Asian feel especially at the Capulet’s party.

Going to this play made me feel like a hopeful school girl again and brought back fond memories of those carefree college days. I had fun and am thankful for the special company I had that night – my beloved (who isn’t quite a Shakespearean fan)… but said he had a fun night too haha…

I am hopeful that we’ll be able to venture to more park productions if they come by again. However, it is highly likely that this Shakespeare in the Park- Romeo and Juliet would be the last park production for a while (unless a patron sponsor is found soon) so don’t miss out on this very special experience.

The run ends on May 22nd 2016, at Fort Canning, entrance by the Gothic Gate. Book your tickets at SISTIC, show details at end of post.

If you do go, be early as carpark is limited (nearest carpark – Carpark A, 50 spaces) but free at night 🙂 Otherwise, park at Park Mall and make a short walk across to Fort Canning Hill. Also everyone gets there early to get best seats as it’s free seating!

Times Waterway Point is the seventh bookstore in Singapore for the group.  Adopting a cheerful orange palette, complemented by warm brown hues of wood structures and trims, this new bookstore exudes a welcoming and cosy vibe that makes browsing and shopping for books and lifestyle merchandise a delight.

“I Kill The Mockingbird” by Paul Acampora got me very curious.  I had loved “To Kill A Mockingbird” but not everybody does so.  This title is about an exciting plot to get the entire town talking about the well-known Harper Lee classic.  Controversial plans were put in place to get people to read the book.  What resulted from all their efforts was a mini revolution in the name of books.

I can’t possibly showcase all the interesting books I saw.  There are simply too many irresistable titles in the bookstore.  Shifting to Sengkang soon with a disapprovingly small bookshop at Seletar Mall, Times Bookstore at Waterway Point will very soon be our book heaven later this year.  We certainly look forward to returning here to spend the lazy afternoon with the kids.  Do check out the bookstore if you have the time.  It’s not everyday that we have such a big bookstore in the heartlands.  There is no need to go to town anymore!

With the new direction of targeting children and families and the launch of this new concept bookstore at Waterway Point, Times is proud to partner one of Singapore’s well-known homegrown celebrity mum, Diana Ser, as its Brand Advocate.  The partnership is based on the shared vision between Times and Diana Ser in advocating the benefits of reading via physical books and the importance of fun learning for children”, said Ms Lek.

In addition, Diana’s proficiency in not one but two important languages in Singapore gives a glimpse into Times’ plans for the future. With the aim of creating a holistic educational pit stop for children, Times recognises that Diana’s bilingualism in the English and Chinese languages makes her a good role model for the younger generation. This is opportune as Diana recently launched her online edutainment program, ‘Crazy About Chinese’, where she shares fun and easy ways through her personal journey of imparting the Chinese language to her four-year-old daughter, Jaymee.

“This partnership with Times is particularly exciting because we are both Singapore brands united in our belief for children to learn through play. Together, Times and Crazy About Chinese will also bring new energy, ideas and resources to parents who are keen to nurture their children to be bilingual!”, said Diana.
Looking ahead, Times will continue to expand its repertoire of Chinese books and products beyond the current English-centric domain, providing children with greater exposure to the Chinese language.

This 红帽子蓝帽子 series on the right is quite good. Unfortunately my close up photo got corrupted. Do check out this series with HYPY for self-reading and also higher level of difficulty as a step-up from kiddish Chinese titles.

{Review} 漂亮妈妈丑女佣 Primary 3 Chinese Supplementary Reader

漂亮妈妈丑女佣 Review

I just finished reading out loud this story to Jiejie last week.  It took me all of 1.5hrs and two glasses of water to complete the story, by the time which was 10 pm.  Ever since she reads independently, I have not been reading much to her and have conveniently ignored Chinese books too.  😦  Well, just mid last week, friends in her class chat group started alerting everybody about the urgency to complete a Chinese book review to be submitted the next day in preparation for next week’s show and tell.  I also caught warnings that the book is not an easy read too.  It was unusual of such commotion in the parents’ chat group.  While the topic of discussion was on-going, I was busy driving, settling the kids back from school and then to set them into their routine of homework and revision and nap after we got home.  I flipped through the book and knew I could leave her alone to the task.  The need to read the book with Jiejie nagged at me for hours ever since I got news of the urgency.  By the time I was ready to share the book with Jiejie, it was already past 8 pm, with the dishes left unwashed, pleading for my hubby to help after he got home from meeting.

Aside from the urgency to complete the book review, I found out that the book review is to be written down and presented in the form of Chinese Show & Tell for next Tuesday.  After worrying for a few hours, I found consolation that Jiejie had already quietly completed her book review while I was working with Didi.  I was seriously thankful that she knows her priorities amidst the revision work I had prepared for her to do for the next two days of Chinese and Maths tests.

漂亮妈妈丑女佣 Review

漂亮妈妈丑女佣 Review

The book review was presented in a 2-page sheet with 3 major topics, each topic guided with 3 questions relating to the story book.  The kids were only required to choose one topic and complete their 3 questions.  I quickly glanced through her completed questionaire and realize that she also had, as usual, simply answered her sentences with short sentences, much lesser than what she can do.  From her answers, she also had not understood the story well enough.  Since the worksheet is meant for Show & Tell, I offered her a story-telling session and explained that she should not just present her Show & Tell with 3 short sentences.  It would be so awkward and she would not be able to grasp a high score.  Gladly she took up the story-telling session offer and sat next to me to listen.  I decided to take it easy as we read the book, to make it a real story-telling session instead of rushing through it like it’s for exams and defeating the purpose of letting her enjoy the story.

Throughout the 1.5hrs of reading, we had meaningful discussions, with my best given in explaining the meaning of the Chinese Idioms to her too.  It was a great bonding session.  By the end of the session, I realised it had been so long since we shared a book together.  It once again reminded me to read stories to the kids – in Chinese.

<<漂亮妈妈丑女佣>> is a story about a Primary 4 girl by the name of 珊珊.  The story started with her verbal victory over her mum at the school gate on her first day of school in a new school.  珊珊 successfully “chased” her mum away from sending her right up to her class, claiming that she knew the way and that she is independent enough.  With disappointment and uncertainty, her mum left her at the school gate and went home.  She secretly rejoiced over the “battle”.

The opening already got Jiejie questioning me – Why wouldn’t 珊珊 want her mum to send her to her class?  Given the opportunity, she would be so happy to have mum with her.  Like what I had enjoyed, she had often said that she would want me to send her to school daily, all the way through university.  Like my mum always say, Jiejie is such a 小甜心!  I had been shuttling the kids ever since I stopped working full time.  I had also shared with the kids that my parents had lovingly sent me to university and my first job site when they started semi-retirement.  It happened all the way until I got comfortable enough to get to work with my first vehicle – a company issued pick-up truck.

珊珊 quickly attracted lots of attention from her classmates ever since she got transferred to this new school.  From her fancy stationary and non-repetitive fashionable apparels (the students are allowed to wear anything on non-uniform day which happens weekly.  They call it 便服日.) to having her daily bento filled with a variety of good food delivered during lunch time, her classmates deduced that she comes from a well-to-do family.  珊珊 conveniently rode on the fame and attention showered upon her.

珊珊 is weak in Mathematics.  Since the day she joined her class and got assigned to sit with another girl by the name of 佩玲, they have been best friends, with 佩玲 unreservedly helping 珊珊 along in her Mathematics whenever she was struggling.  On this day with a horrible storm, the same dark-skinned lady with an ugly scar on her face who delivered bento daily at the school gate was seen standing outside the classroom, dripping wet from head to toe.  In her hands, she carried a bento bag and stood patiently waiting.  珊珊 did not notice her presence as she was busy with her maths until 佩玲 nudged her.

漂亮妈妈丑女佣 Review

Upon seeing the lady, 珊珊 reacted strongly with her pencil thrown on the table, stormed out of the classroom, grabbed her bento bag and then shouted at the ugly lady.  “WHY are you here?!  DIDN’T I tell you not to appear outside my classroom??  Do you NOT understand instructions?!!”  All these while, the classmates watched while 珊珊 ungratefully demeaned the ugly lady who brought bento for her in the storm, who quietly allowed 珊珊 to shout at her without so much of a thanks.  When the ugly lady finally left, she turned her head to watch with a resigned look on her face, only to hear 珊珊 telling her classmates that she is her maid.

Jiejie was puzzled why 珊珊 had to be so mean to her helper.  I did not reveal much from the story line yet but told her that she is right to have the basic courtesy and humanity to question 珊珊’s actions.  No matter what level or background someone is from, a favour given is a kindness received and one has to be thankful for it.  

When asked why her parents had employed an ugly maid, 珊珊 replied that her mum preferred an ugly one so that the maid will behave herself and know her place in the family.  To many of us, it would more or less mean that the helper would be unlikely to “choot pattern” during her engagement especially when the employers are not at home.  All these words, were heard by the ugly lady and she merely walked away sadly.

By now, 珊珊 was seen as as a child coming from a wealthy family.  She adored the fawning and attention she received from her classmates.

On another day, it rained early in the morning and 珊珊 had a brand new dress soiled by the splashes of rain.  As usual, the ugly lady delivered her bento and because 珊珊 did not appear at the school gate (doing maths again), the ugly lady sent it up to her classroom and waited patiently in her soaking wet clothes.  As if a dormant volcano that suddenly erupted after decades, 珊珊 released her all her pent-up anger at the ugly lady without any reservations.

漂亮妈妈丑女佣 Review

An accident changed 珊珊’s life forever.  On this day that her classmate ran to inform her that her maid had met with an accident at the school gate, 珊珊 finally showed her inner feelings she had for her mother.  As you and I would have guessed it correctly, the ugly lady was actually her mother.  All these while, she had been embarassed of her mother’s looks and her family’s poverty.  She had taken advantage of her mother’s love for her as her entitlement to being bratty, even to the extent of claiming that her that her mum was actually her family’s domestic help.  With her mum bleeding profusely right now and not reacting to her cries, would she lose the support and love all of a sudden?  Would she become an orphan?

漂亮妈妈丑女佣 Review

This supplementary reader loaned by school is not an easy read for the P3s at all.  While I had no problem figuring out some of the highly-difficult Chinese Idioms and phrases, I did find myself stumbling over some Hanyu Pinyin (HYPY) pronounciation and awe-struck by the author’s choice of words.  Some of them are way beyond everyday-use of common Idioms.  If you ask me to recall and reapply the Idioms used right now, I frankly admit that I am unable to – even over simple things like describing bad weather.  I’m not talking about 雷电交加,风云密布,天色灰暗, 风和日丽 .  😦

I can safely say that most P3 kids would not pick up the book if it is not given as a homework.  Even if the book is fully printed with HYPY to assist, the cluttered pages, small fonts and difficulty of the words would only make things worse.  Had it not been issued by the school as an assignment, I would not have discovered the need to shift my focus on the kids’ school work back to Chinese.  I had relied on a Chinese Writing/Oral Enrichment class for Jiejie while Didi goes for regular enrichment class being the only one offered for P1 kids.  While they have been coping very well in the language, I have overlooked the need to constantly encourage them to read Chinese books.  Similar to picking up independent reading for English titles, what I should do now, is to read Chinese titles to them on a daily basis.  One day, hopefully still not too late, they would be willing to pick up and read a Chinese title on their own.

However I need to add that this book is a great resource for imparting values and promote higher level reading beyond illustrated books.  The HYPY helped alot with pronounciation and is going to be helpful to the kids as well.  Slowly (and painstakingly it will be), they would be able to pick up word recognition without the heavy reliant on HYPY.

<<漂亮妈妈丑女佣>> is part of a series of value-based story books by Taiwanese 李光福.   <<漂亮妈妈丑女佣>> teaches us to be grateful in life and not to take things for granted.  Other titles in the series are as shown below.  I would be ordering a set and hope to make use of them well.  You can find the titles under this series from the photos below and should be able to find the books on 当当 or Taobao.

{Giveaway} SRT’s 三只山羊 The Three Billy Goats Gruff ~ Share to Win a Family Package worth $192

Have you heard that Singapore Repertory Theatre’s The Little Company is staging The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff in Mandarin from 18 February – 26 March 2016?

It was such an enjoyable treat to watch the hugely successful brand new English production of The Three Billy Goats Gruff last year (Read our review here), that the children are really looking forward to watching this play again, but in Mandarin this time. Super Yay!

1446635913230

I’ve always been on the look out for fun Mandarin activities to engage Wey to spark his interest in the language. Having been to the Mandarin versions of TLC’s 金发姑娘和三只熊 Goldilocks and the Three Bears and 丑小鸭 The Ugly Duckling, I’m pretty sure The Three Billy Goats Gruff will come out making Mandarin an accessible fun language for the kids through hilarious dialogue, creative storytelling and catchy music!!

Meet “Baby”, “Middle” and “Big”, the Three Billy Goats Gruff with their forgetful almost silly caretaker, Little Bo-Frilly as they look for grass that always seems greener on the other side, especially now that they are in the middle of a dreadful drought! Together, the gang decide to cross the bridge to the other side of the valley, where lush green grass awaits. Yummy!!!

But wait! Hold on a minute! Below the bridge lives a frightening troll that (gulp!) loves to feast on goats (not kids! Phew! no worries haha)… Can they outsmart the monstrous greedy troll?
