2013 Holiday Programmes

Obviously, this is a backdated post; and I’ve never thought of being delay for so long!

During the 2013 year-end holiday, Sarah has joined three holiday programmes at three different centers. The activities included arts & crafts, cooking/ baking, gym exercise and kids yoga.

The one Sarah enjoyed the most was doing yoga with a group of friends; by looking at the photos, I can feel her excitement in the class. Yoga is good for her as it increases the body flexibility, strength and concentration.

Sarah also learnt some arts and crafts techniques like weaving, T-shirt painting and soap-making. Every time she will came home with some art works that she has done at center, and she happily shared the knowledge with me.

Within three weeks, she’s amassed quite a lot of craft works. Therefore, we have turned one of the tables into her display corner.

P/S: Thanks Janice for the Yoga photos.

Perpustakaan Tun Uda & School Library

Sarah loves to spend time at bookshops since she was a toddler; she simply enjoys flipping through the books or listening to stories from us.

And then we came across some information about Perpustakaan Tun Uda at Shah Alam few months ago. It was the largest public library in Selangor and we decided to bring Sarah there, as we believe it will be an eye-opener for her since she never been to such place before.

It turned out we were impressed with the set up of the library; it is new, clean and the most of the places are fully carpeted…and their staffs were quite friendly too.

Sarah enjoyed herself so much in the children reading zone as it was well decorated with colourful furnitures and comfortable lighting. The gigantic “tree” and “hill” also helps to create a conducive reading atmosphere for her.

Kids are not allowed in other sections so we did not explore the whole library, but we did manage to borrow home some children books.

Sarah definitely learnt something from the visitation. She has a better understanding of library rules now, and it gives her courage to borrow the first book from school library recently.
