The wheels on a bike

Got his new bicycle during raya break, finally. It’s good that our house on a dead-end road, and the government decided to tar the road one day after PRU13 – he gets to swing his new bike around nicely. Of course I have to tag along. This is no longer 1990s where kids play outside alone. *teringat dulu dulu main basikal sampai bunyi azan maghrib baru balik, tapi ada jugak sesetengah tu nak balik sebab nak tengok doraemon* :).

One day AE said, “Mummy, teacher Kelly said bicycle has 2 wheels”

Me: Yes, that is correct

AE: But……what about the two small wheels at the back?

Me: Well, coz it is small, we just don’t count it. [that’s the best answer I can think of that time!]

Happy riding!

Multiple Intelligences

It has been forever I wanted to share this with the readers.

This theory of multiple intelligence above by Howard Gardner in 1983 suggests that a child can be intelligent in many areas, rather than traditionally just one type. Contohnya, kadang kadang ada orang cakap, “budak tu tak pandai sekolah, pandai melukis je.”. The first sentence contradicted where budak tu actually memang pandai. He possess a type of intelligence that not all people has. 

Hence when a child is young, it is vital if parents/guardians/teachers can discover which one of the above that child possesses. According to Gardner, the child have at least 4 of the intelligences above. But if this passion and skills are not nurtured, it can be gone when they become adult.

For example, a child with kinesthetic intelligence may lose it if he did not practice it when he is a child. Contohnya kalau student tu asik disuruh belajar dan baca buku tapi tak pernah bersukan atau pergi playground, maka lama lama hilanglah kemahiran kinestetic dia bila dia besar.

Instead, by recognizing and polishing these skills, the child will become a balanced person inshaAllah.

One thing that is different here is the scenic caves. It’s everywhere! Rock climbing is quiet famous at the Railay Beach apparently. AE swimming non-stop in the open sea.

Day 3: Phi Phi

Day 3: Phi Phi

Day 3: Phi Phi. I didn’t expect this little place is hustling and bustling with tourists! I’m tired here due to motion sickness. The waves was strong during the ferry journey from Railay Beach to Phi Phi. Nevertheless the others enjoyed themselves:). Next time we should spent overnight here.

Conclusion: We ❤ Krabi!.
