Disney on Ice

Answered a survey online in a bid to win tickets to Disney On Ice next year and at the end of the survey, there was a question about whether I’m interested to send my kids for a casting.. didn’t know what it was but I clicked ‘yes’.

Then 2 weeks ago, I received an email to request for photos or videos of my kids if I want them to be considered for the casting. I sent a few photos of my kids and a video of my girl..

She sang the song she was preparing for her graduation concert.. 

The next day, I got a call to inform me that the kids have been shortlisted for the casting and we arranged to bring the kids to go for a preliminary filming session..

The kids were very comfortable with the camera and were giggling most of the time although they didn’t use grammatical structures most of the time.. I took a video but it’s too long to be shared here.. 

The following day, I got an email to confirm that both had been selected for the filming. 

I couldn’t make it for the actually filming so I asked hubby to bring the kids there.. on the way there, his car broke down so he had to take a cab there.. 😓

According to him, he couldn’t take any photos or videos as he had to wait outside the studio..

After the filming, the kids got a big goody bag each and hubby was told that they would email me regarding the Cat 1 tickets for the Disney on Ice shows next March! Woohoo! I can’t wait to see the video on social media! 

Update: here’s the link to the short promo clip..


Jocelle’s Graduation

Finally, my girl had her graduation concert today..

She was dressed in a Korean hanbok for her performance but went to the stage in her graduation 🎓 gown first.. we were seated by the aisle so it was easy for us to take photos of her as she walked past..

She started with a song for the teachers. Then we waited for her performance which was the last one before the finale.. according to her, their performance was placed at the last cos it was the best.. haha..

Before her performance, she had a short emcee stint but the file is too big to be uploaded here..

The item we had been waiting for finally arrived! I didn’t take video of the first part as it was the boys’ part.. we paid for the DVD so we could see the entire performance but I just wanted to focus on her…

I had to agree that their item was the best! She danced so gracefully and confidently and I’m so proud of her!

After the finale, we took many photos of her with her friends and her teachers, it’s like she had just graduated from U… 😅


It’s nice that the graduands were each given a graduation bear!

Book Bugs

Brought the boy to the library yesterday to borrow some Chinese books.. with my card, we borrowed 14 books.. he told me he needed to scan 8 books in one receipt so that he could redeem book bugs cards.. however, he couldn’t redeem yesterday since they could only do the redemption on weekends.. we brought him to the library again and there was a self-service redemption corner where the kids can redeem their book bugs cards on their own..


He’s very motivated to borrow more books but I told him he has to read the books we borrowed first..
