Pork Pie Drums

Pork Pie Drums. What are they? Though they may sound delicious and my son would be interested to eat them, but unfortunately they're not food but a famous brand for musical instruments. They have products ranging from acoustic drums to drum accessories. Even if they're not something to eat, I'm sure my son would still like to have some since he likes drums and is even wanting to learn to play the drums. :)

Questions from the Kids

I'm always amazed as to how kids think and ask questions these days. When I was kid, I never asked a lot of questions. I was the kind of child who accepts almost everything that is being fed by the grown ups without exploring the ideas much since I was more concentrated  in  retaining the facts in my head. Remember the difference between the 'smart child' and the 'gifted child'? They say that the smart child , answers the questions correctly but the 'gifted child' asks the right question. Well, that proves that I'm not a gifted child. lol! Anyways, back to my kids' questions, they ask me questions like this: 

 - on the serpent tempting Eve: ' I thought God made everything good ... why is the serpent bad?' question from my 5 year old.
- on Matthew 6 God taking care of the birds and the lilies .. ' God loves the people most, right? But why the birds don't have to work for their food but people have to work first to get food? ' question from my 9 year old
- on David and Goliath: ' But Goliath is sooo tall and big.. how can a stone kill him??' question from my 5 year old. 

Oh, and there's so many other questions.. it's a good thing though that I know my Bible and I feel relieved whenever I hear their 'Ahhhs...' and see their eyes sparkle after I satisfactorily answer their questions. But for their more difficult questions like science and history, that's the time I tell them..'Let's check that on Google!!".  Yes, Mr. Google is my friend.. :)

Saving for Legoland

Last year our kids prayed and saved up to go to Kidzania in Malaysia. They were so consistent with saving all the cash gifts given to them and gathering the small coins they see in the house that they met their goal in a few months time. And this year, they're desiring to go to Legoland Malaysia and started saving money too. I couldn't help but smile as my son showed me a small zip lock bag full of coins and asked me if the money inside is enough to go to Legoland. Oh, they still had a long way to go...unless they get to gather those precious coins from . But even then, there's nothing to worry about since Legoland will always be there no matter how long it would take them to save up the right amount. But I know too that as they prayed and save, this will surely come to pass just as how they were able to go to Kidzania.
