|Why I am so smart and so stupid|
The news on this Wednesday reported a child at fifth grade primary school (P5) hid in the toilet for a long time. The Filipino helper knocked on the door. Silence. After 10 minutes, A cry was heard. It was found out the child had jumped out from the window and died. (news here)
Their cares do not stop but reaches till university. It’s amusing to read how Professor Choy talks about the ‘Monster Parents’ during the student information day in the Chinese University. In one demonstration of science experiment, parents participated, made notes, video – recorded it and then show it to their children at home. (article here) I wonder, who is the student? The parents or the children?
In fact, I found it funny when I happened to join a trip to visit the organic farms and a staff was showing how to make cookies, the man beside me, holding his 2 year – old child, translate all the procedures into English for him.
Unfortunately (or rather fortunately), I don’t have all these opportunities to learn during my childhood. I was sick for most of the times and so staying at home was big part of my life. When I was not sick, i went out to play, throw snowball or make snowman.
In Halloween, I disguised as vampire and played trick or treat in the neighborhood. I would have a large bag of candies that took me around a month to finish it.
Now I am in my 3rd year, studying Government and Laws Degree in the Hong Kong University.
