Before the closure of schools....
Me: so who looks after you and your younger brother?
My primary 4 student : my mother.
Me: ok. Who cooks your breakfast and gets you ready for school?
The girl : my helper.
Me : cool. Who prepares your lunch?
The girl : sometimes my helper cooks it and delivers it to school or sometimes I pre order it. It is disgusting. Home cooked is better.
Me: that's good. Then how about when you return from school?
The student : I usually just have some snack like chips or instant noodles..
Me: instant noodles aren't healthy you know..
The student: I know, but what can I do..?
Me: then who helps with your homework?
The girl : I go to tutorials till late at night and sometimes MY HELPER helps with the revision
ME: what happens in the evening?
The girl : mum returns around 7. She's too tired to do much so we all have a quiet dinner prepared by THE HELPER and then we go to bed.
Me: how about weekends?
The girl : usually on Saturdays my mum goes out to yum char or to play mahjong with friends till late because she has a stressful life.
Me: then who looks after you on Saturday?
The girl : THE HELPER. She cooks and does other necessary things.
Me: right. Then what about Sundays?
The girl: some sundays we visit our grandparents where we play games with cousins and others we spend at home watching tv or playing phone games.
Me: then who actually LOOKS AFTER YOU?
The girl: MY MOTHER
my younger brother sent me this from Oz
Me: Anything with 4 legs is not to be taken seriously, a Chinese saying
I'm sure he learnt something new today
There is a rhubarb triangle within the area of the points formed Morley, Wakefield and Rothwell
The area once produced 90% of the world's winter forced rhubarb (whatever that is).
