I am sort of lucky that I don’t have any after school tuition. I never had one before. Dad doesn’t believe in it. Dad said that, as it is, I already spend enough time in school and after school activities. He didn’t want me to have any tuition so that I can have time to relax and do my own stuff. He said that I should have time to play and time to grow up.
Some of my classmates have tuition every day of the week, even on Saturdays and Sundays. They often have tuition until ten o’clock in the evening. Aiyoh! Dad said that they have all sort of tuition now. Advance mental calculation, Professional vocal training, Advance English, Competitive Speaking, Mandarin for Business, Advance Stress Control he he...
I used to have ballet, but I stopped that now because I didn’t want to dance on my toes. So, now I only have piano, on Saturday. I am at grade 5, I think. That’s because I have not sat for any grading exams. When we first started on piano, dad insisted that I not take any piano exams. So, my piano teacher grades me as I go and I learn at my own pace. I am kind of slow but I enjoy playing the piano. When the rest were stressing-out over classical pieces for exams, I was playing songs like Beauty and the Beast. He he. Dad liked it a lot.
I might want to take up sewing or cushion making classes, next year. I have just completed my first cushion. Dad said that it looks almost professional. I was thinking of designing and making some cushion so that I can sell them but I am not even sure if I am good at it or not. He he... We’ll see. LoL.
