Mo anvie sa!!

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Patrick wrote an interesting article  on his personal experience as a parent- how to cope with the wants of the kids. Many parents nowadays usually give in to the wants of their newborn. If they  (kids) do not get what they want, they would usually cry or “jette lecorps” until the parents gave in.  I happened to witness the scene in a well known supermarket whereby the kid(usually 3-5 years) would “jette lecorps” when the parent would not buy something the kid want.

Is there an age limit where parents should bear with the “anvie” of their kids? My cousin’s son (would be one in a few months)  would usually cry when he did not get what he want. Then his grandmother would coax him. It is not easy nowadays to try to reason with his/her kids when both parents are working. So to keep the kid from crying the parent would usually give in. As Patrick said his spouse and him would tell their child why they would not be buying this or that. At least the child would know why.

So how do you cope with the wants of your child? Do you maintain your stand?

Tonghua!

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

Am totally in love with this song much to the damn of my family and neighbour (as i maxed the volume :p) . You can see and listen to it on youtube. The English version by Jason chen is also cool.  It’s called tonghua (Fairy tale).

Here’s the lyrics in pinyin(sorry the editor does not recognise  mandarin characters)

Wang le you duo jiu zai mei ting dao ni
Dui wo shuo ni zui ai de gu shi
Wo xiang le hen jiu wo kai shi huang le
Shi bu shi wo you zuo cuo le shen me
# Ni ku zhe dui wo shuo tong hua li dou shi pian ren de
Wo bu ke neng shi ni de wang zi
Ye xu ni bu hui dong cong ni shuo ai wo yi hou
Wo de tian kong xing xing dou liang le

* Wo yuan bian cheng tong hua li ni ai de na ge tian shi
Zhang kai shuang shou bian cheng chi bang shou hu ni
Ni yao xiang xin xiang xin wo men hui xiang tong hua gu shi li
Xin fu he kuai le shi jie ju

Repeat # and *

Wo yao bian cheng tong hua li ni ai de na ge tian shi
Zhang kai shuang shou bian cheng chi bang shou hu ni
Ni yao xiang xin xiang xin wo men hui xiang tong hua gu shi li
Xin fu he kuai le shi jie ju

Wo hui bian cheng tong hua li ni ai de na ge tian shi
Zhang kai shuang shou bian cheng chi bang shou hu ni
Ni yao xiang xin xiang xin wo men hui xiang tong hua gu shi li
Xin fu he kuai le shi jie ju

Yi qi xie wo men de jie ju

It’s a love song but is very sad. The clip on youtube features the singer and his girlfriend together. One day the girl happened to suffer from a disease and she listened to his bf’s performance on her cellphone. After the performance, she collapsed in her hospital bed. Very sad… The singer is from Malaysia and from what i understood the song was a hit in China.

Enjoy!!! Bon weekend!!!
