T博客系列:我從霸凌經驗學到的事

趁著休假在家的空擋,我終於有機會去校車巴士站等小孩放學,而在巴士站,碰到了好久不見的M媽媽,聊聊兩人家庭的近況之外,M 媽媽突然八卦起來,問我知不知道隔壁S太太的八卦?

『什麼八卦?』 我最近工作忙,沒時間了解,也沒人跟我講。

M媽媽說,『哎呀,還不就是她小孩皮,在班上一直闖禍,跟幾個孩子吵架,還有打架,讓一些小朋友很害怕上學,其他家長很不開心』

『是喔?! 』我繼續問下去,『那學校怎麼處理?五歲的小男生本來就很皮啊!』

M媽媽口沫橫飛的說,『其他家長就聯合起來,告狀告到校長那去,就連家長會都被扯了進來,然後還大家坐下來一起開會』 『那最後結果如何?』 Continue reading

Off to Vietnam We Go! 出發!越南去!

1386

It was the trip that we have been planning for weeks – 8 families plus 17 kids.  Never mind the kids, I was super excited and SO ready for some sun, fun, beach, pool and plenty of pho!  Destination is Danang, a port city that sits on the South Central Coast of Vietnam.  Flight time from Hong Kong to Danang is only 1 hour and 40 minutes.  A short hop away and then this is what awaits – the perfect beach vacation.

計劃已久的復活節家庭旅遊終於要登場了!   因為有一對夫妻好友熱衷往峴港跑,去了兩次之後,也號召其他家庭一起參加他們的復活節旅行。最後揪一揪總共揪到了八個家庭,其中包含十七個小朋友一起出發。  不要說小孩子了,大人們都超級期待這次的旅行,我超級需要陽光,海灘,還有吃到飽的越南河粉。 峴港飛到香港需要坐兩個鐘頭不到的飛機,之後就可以盡心欣賞這樣風景…

T博客系列: 公主病 親吻也醒不過來的劇毒

我不清楚阿帕契是什麼東西。我也不想罵李倩蓉,因為有太多人比我更討厭她,更急著要罵。

整個新聞事件對我而言,比較重要的是,要怎樣教育出一個沒有公主病的女孩。 這個對我來說,遠比國軍機密更來得重要,因為家裡有一個小不點大的女娃,而她最迷戀的人物,就是”Princess”。

MM’s First School Interview 妹妹的面試初體驗

photo-49

 

Yesterday was MM’s first and only school interview and when i say school, I mean pre-nursery.  This is the only school that I applied for her.  I guess it’s because I’m pretty confident she’ll get in because her brother went there.  Also if she doesn’t get in, I thought i’ll just keep her at home for another year.  I’m sure the helpers would enjoy having her around…I think. MM picked out what she wanted the wear for the interview herself, and the shoes to go with.  She’s usually pretty quiet in a new environment and didn’t say much.  Yesterday was no different.  The only word she said the whole time she was there was “Thank you”.  It was more like a whisper but she did say it and I was relieved.  She did, however, waved bye to the teachers as we walked out. We’ll find out the result next week. For some reason, it’s extra emotional for mommy to see her little girl all grown up and ready for school.  I guess because she’s probably my last child.  Sniff sniff…

昨天帶妹妹去她第一次的學校面試.  可能是因為這是哥哥的舊學校,她幾乎是十拿九穩可以入學,所以我非常輕鬆,完全是以回娘家的心態進去學校的.  不僅非常輕鬆,根本有點心不在焉的,把時間看錯,遲到了半個小時才到.  但是看到很多熟悉的老師,真的非常開心.  老師們也不斷地打量妹妹,說她跟哥哥長得一模一樣. 在面試時,老師也沒問妹妹幾句,只顧著跟媽媽聊天.  妹妹全程只開了金口一次,就是要離開時跟老師說”謝謝”  不過她說了之後,我還真鬆了口氣. 昨天的心情是有點複雜,一方面開心看見之前非常照顧哥哥的老師們,跟她們報告哥哥的近況跟秀照片.  另外一方面看著妹妹小不點大的身影,也很感慨她已經這麼大了.  很有意見的自己挑選衣服跟鞋子.  妹妹可不可以不要那麼快長大?

Sushi is What’s for Dinner! 壽司晚餐自己來


IMG_4469

不知道為何小朋友們聽到晚上要吃壽司,就會興奮地大喊”sushi sushi”.  今天我除了想做壽司之外,也想試做加州捲給我老公吃.  先從小朋友的開始著手

I have no idea why the kids love them but every time when I tell them sushi is what’s for dinner, they jump up and down in excitement and shout “sushi, sushi” in unison.  Tonight, in addition to making sushi, I also wanted to attempt to make california rolls for hubby.

T博客系列: 我家的”瑪麗亞”

apartment-162212_1280

香港外傭案判決日前終於出爐.  只是,這還用法官判嗎?  你看那印尼女傭被打成那樣不成人形,有眼睛的人都看得出來,那位女僱主十分變態.  去年當這起受虐案被媒體報導時,也引發外界關注香港外傭人權議題.  當美國暢銷小說,描述黑人女傭在1960年代受到嚴重歧視被拍成電影”The Help“ (台灣片名’姊妹’)時,朋友們開玩笑說,你也應該寫一本僱主血淚史,叫做”The Ma’am” (太太).  血淚史是誇張講法,因為無論如何,外傭們還是屬於社會弱勢團體,工作時間長,有人被僱主剝削,更惡劣的就像香港印尼女傭的太太,不僅拳打腳踢,還精神虐待,但是說到聘請外傭,我的確頗有心得,因為什麼樣鳥事,都被我遇過.

T博客系列:成為母親後,遇上Mr.Grey

50-shades-of-grey-_2985755k

老實說, 我超級期待“格雷的五十道陰影”上映. 而且不止是我,我身邊所有的女性朋友都非常期待. 我們年過三十,結婚多年,大都生了小孩. 你可以說我們是人妻,師奶,媽咪,Cougar. 有些朋友甚至會義正言辭地告訴你,她是MILF (若是不清楚何謂MILF,請重看一次電影“美國派”).  沒錯,我們完全符合這本書/電影的target audience. 你可以說我們中了書商跟電影公司的計. 但真相是,這無關他人, this is about us. Continue reading
