Reuven first written chinese word 呂

Take this chance to write this before reuven wake up. Haha.


Reuven first Chinese word (surname) written by himself with a decent stroke 呂!


today is a lesson for him to understand his name better and how to write.  thank God, After that day bed talk he is getting more and more interested in Chinese.  Although still can’t comment that he is excited , at least he is onto it now. 🙂

With colour pencil on his hand,imagination run wild and he drew on paper.

Reuven: daddy daddy look look I draw a robot!

daddy :just a minute, I am doing some work . I promise I be ready in a min.

Reuven: daddy ..don’t want to see ..(then he sulk face).

daddy: just imagine those video about daddy ignore their children when their children are so excited to show the joy.

I immediately stopped work. I am always constantly reminding myself that he is just happy to share at that moment. if I missed it, the feeling and the excitement will be gone.  I must grab it that moment to show more encouragement.

I take this chance to  interact with him more and take this chance to practise chinese stroke. haha and also explain about his Chinese name and Surname and we go by stage to write it.


he is so happy. ^ .^ seriously I also feel happy too. this is his first Chinese decent writing without any aids. although I admit it is quite easy to write. Haha but it is still a milestone:)

love you my boy. 🙂 jia yo! 🙂

by the way can try those colour pencil that are thicker in diameter and shorter. it is easier for them to grip and hold. I feel my boy improve alot and write it better. 🙂

An ColourFul art and craft work with Reuven- Easy DIY photo ‘frame’

Time Flies, now weekend again. Must catch up the blogging for last week some of the happening.


i remember after Reuven help me to choose the sofa colour, and some of my friends also commented that little one are attracted to colourful thing. i got this idea making  our ‘photo frame’. i drag this quite long, till last week at late evening, we finally make it happen. 🙂

Daddy : Reuven, did you want to do art and craft ?

Reuven : what is art and craft ?

Daddy : something to do with your hand, we need to do up the ‘photo frame’  i need your help, will you able to help me?

Reuven: two index finger touch on his left and right and with a cheeky smile. nodded his head and rush over.


some colour papers we get from popular and of cos grapes are our snack.  can see that his griping of glues and pen are getting better and better.


then he also participated to put up the photo on the wall. look at his happy face..and of cos mine too. haha . Quite a successful art and craft i think. 🙂 most important he become more confident and think out of the box when alot of shape, design  and colours combination i leave it to him to decide. he was really decisive.

you all can try that too. 🙂

Good nite everyone.

Learning to draw and Write

Today, Reuven was very excited about the colour pencils that was received yesterday from the birthday celebration.


I took this chance to share with him another lesson. At first i thought of teaching him to write his name , in the end i feel that he should be more comfortable ( as he is very happy when talk about shape)  and able to control his stroke. Then that will help to boost his confidence on writing.

imageFew months back ,i remember i guide him on how to hold the pencil, and today i share with him again, he hold it very well. I started to explain how to draw the triangle with those aided point. Such as demo, hold his hand to draw and keep repeat the steps.

imageLike saiding 1( continue from one point to another) , stop,(lift up the hand) , 2( join another point) stop, 3. ( join another point). He actually repeat what i said.

After a few practise, he manage to draw some decent triangle ! ( in green) . To reward him, i give him a star ! He is overjoyed and keep practising hard! He kept saiding, Daddy, i want stars !:)
