Today when I picked ds1 up from school, his teacher talked to me for a while. She was planning a CNY party in school and a whole week of chinese-related craft and projects and asked me about some stuff.

By the way, I just compiled another list of resources for celebrating Chinese New Year with kids, especially if you are not in your home country and it is difficult to experience the atmosphere.
Includes books, video clips, craft ideas and songs.

Here's the link: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/549003/a_multimedia_resource_list_for_kids.html

Then the teacher also told me that ds1 had insisted that an "aggressive disobedient" dinosaur be put in the thinking chair today. It was this toy dino that is in the classroom. The teacher said he wanted her to talk to the dinosaur and made sure he learnt his lesson and not be aggressive again in future.

I asked ds1 about it in the car later, and he said the dino was fighting with other dinos, so he had to be punished and had to think about his actions in the thinking chair.

The other thing is, our Tianjin move has a tentative date now. We'll probably be flying there on the 18th of March. Thereabouts.

I have just applied to the Intl School. But for apartments, we are unable to to do much right now. We'd just have to go there and be homeless for the 1st week, look at apartments right away once we reach, and then hopefully be able to move in asap once we decided on one.

The area of the apartment will definitely be less than what we are living in right now, but that's just how most apartments in China's cities are, just like in Singapore. We still hope to get one that has a spare bedroom so that any of our family or friends can visit and stay with us.

I have viewed so many apartment floor plans in the past weeks, and it seems like, most kitchens are also very small, similar to the trend apartments in Spore follow. Being used to larger kitchens here (especially those I see in friends' houses), and actually liking it very much, I find myself trying to look for apartments with big kitchens too, but they are really too expensive.

As for packing, I have a heap of boxes at the corner of my larger bedroom now. My rooms and shelves are looking more and more spacious as I pack. Quite a nice feeling, and just in time for CNY, just like doing spring cleaning! :-)
