Every Tuesday, in the WA newspaper, they have an Education lift-out.
Macam kat M’sia with all the major newspapers lah kan.
Starting this year, Miss 8’s class does a session going through what’s in the lift-out.
A few weeks ago, the have a special lift-out on Footy/ Aussie Rules.
They have to do a few maths exercise that revolves around footy and they also have to…
Predict the teams that will win each week!
Dah lah we all ni memang tak follow langsung footy ni so memang tak tau mana teams yang bagus and mana teams yang bottom of the ladder.
We said to Miss 8, “Just choose whichever team you like.” Which she did.
And out of the 9 games that were played last weekend, she picked SIX winning teams.
Punyalah gelak we all sebab a kid yang tak tau langsung pasal footy managed to do better than random chance, hehehe.
See, it is hard work choosing the winning teams . She has to do this until the footy season ends in September (sikit punya lama ke!).
On a different story, the technician came this morning.
He kept on telling me that the flame in the oven could be just from the manufacturing oil that was still there and it will gradually disappear once the oil is gone.
I kept on telling him that a brand new oven is not supposed to catch fire!
And then, he turned the grill element on and there wasn’t any flame at first so he was a bit smug thinking that he was right and I was wrong.
We left the oven on for quite a while watching it but still nothing happened.
Until he was on his way out when I sort of said, “I better take another look in the oven just to make sure everything is still in order and there’s no more fire in there.”
Lo and behold, there was a small flame next to the grill element.
(Masa ni I was feeling ecstatic sebab I could prove to him that I wasn’t hallucinating about the fire!)
Dia pun terkejut sama and quickly took a photo of the flame and then rang his boss up. But at the same time he kept on telling me, “Probably it’s still burning off the excess oil and you can always wipe the carbon off from the oven ceiling. I don’t think it will happen again.”
I pun tension lah so I said to him, “I am not going to have to call you guys every single time I switch on the grill because there’s a fire in it. I am lucky I got you to come out very quickly. Next time if it happens again, I might have to wait a week before a technician is available to come to my house. What am I suppoesed to do in the meantime? And I also do not want the extra work of having to wipe off the burnt residue on the ceiling everytime. I want a brand new oven!”
(banyak lagi I said to him at this stage but I was very polite all the time, hehehehe.)
So, dia pun accepted the fact that it is much easier for them to give me a brand new oven than having to come to my house every single time I switch on the grill, hehehehe.
But, the earliest I can get the new oven delivered and installed is late next week….
I just hope it can be installed before Miss 12’s birthday.
So, our dinner tonite didn’t use the oven at all.
In a way, The Other Half is quite ‘happy’ I can’t use the oven yet sebab he can melantak fried chips for dinner.
Selalunya, I will oven bake the frozen chips, memang jarang sangat2 lah I menggoreng chips ni. Lagi senang masuk dlm oven dari goreng.
But tonite, terpaksalah I menggoreng chips (which definitely tasted much better than the oven baked ones, hehehe.)
I made beef schnitzel, salad and french fries.
I guess in M’sia, you call this beef chops eh?
We love schnitzel sebab the leftover schnitzels can be used in sandwiches for lunch the next day .
