The other night we went to parents info night for the PEAC program that Miss 9 has been accepted into.
Masa tengah tunggu the program to start, we all terdengar lah this lady behind us talking.
She was bragging about her son.
How clever and smart her son is and how he is so busy every nite going to all these extra curricular activities.
One night taekwando, another night footy, another night soccer and another night music stuff.
And he’s basically at the state level for each one of them judging from the way she bragged about him.
And their lives basically revolve around sending him to all these places until the other siblings felt left out.
And on and on she went talking about what the son can do and how impressed they were with his achievements.
We all yang duduk depan dia dah tak larat nak muntah!
Come on lah lady!
Every parent who was in that room all have bright kids or else they wouldn’t have been in that room listening to the PEAC information kan!
The kids who got into PEAC are the top 2 1/2% of all year 5 public school students.
Bukan anak you sorang aje yang pandai….
The Other Half pulak saje je mendajal, terus temberang cakap kuat2….
“I don’t know how Miss 9 is going to cope with having all these other students who are so much older than her in PEAC. She’s only 7 and yet so bright.!”
“I guess she’s going to do ok since her sister was only 10 when she started hight school.”
I teruslah elbowed him and said to him “kalau nak auta pun, agak2 lah, jangan lah temberang teruk2. People will think we have geniuses for kids!”
I guess doesn’t matter where you live kan, there will always be parents who think their kids are the smartest, the cleverest, the funniest, the brightest and the world revolves around their kids and them!
I don’t think it’s wrong to be proud of your kids’ achievements but to brag about it…….. hmmmmmmm……
I am so glad I wasn’t the one whe had to sit next to that lady, hehehehe….
Malam ni I made roast chicken again for dinner
But a different type of roast chicken, a wet version.
I made chicken with 40 cloves of garlic. I ikut recipe ini but I olah sikit. I didn’t use that much liquid and I added celery and carrots to the mix. I also subs the white wine with apple juice+vinegar mix.
I betul2 guna 40 cloves of garlic you! I letak under the chicken, inside the chicken, on top of the chicken, hahahahaha.
But once it’s been cooked, memang takde rasa garlic and bau garlic langsung.
But I lupa nak ambik gambar the chicken inside the pot once it’s cooked.
Ada gambar yang dah dipotong2 aje.
It’s so meltingly tender and fell off the bones.
Makan dengan oven-baked fries and garden salad with croutons.
This recipe makes a lot of gravy so I had to reduce and thicken it a bit.
And bila nak makan, just tuang the gravy onto the chicken.
The girls tak komplen langsung about the amount of garlic in it so I guess they didn’t know it was there lah kan.
