From the time I started this blog, I have been complaining about how NOISY the Chinese are.
Isn’t it ironic that I actually LOVE karaoke and I play some really LOUD music when I’m cooking or doing housework?
Recently, I found a huge collection of music with my favourite artistes like Avril Lavigne, Blink 182, Linkin Park, Smashing Pumpkins and etc and had a good time even if I was stuck in a traffic jam.
The funniest thing is that the kids complained: “It’s too noisy!”
I laughed and said, “Do you want me to bring in the cows, chickens and pigs?”
Hahaha, they remember the kiddo’s first book “It’s Too Noisy” by Joanna Cole. This cute book is about a farmer who complains about his noisy home on the farm…
After ALL the years of listening to Barney and nursery rhymes, it’s nice to get back our music 🙂
Computer vision syndrome (计算机视觉综合征)
As electronic billboards, computer screens, screens of tablets and various mobile devices emit harmful blue light (蓝光), the name for eye problems caused by computer use is computer vision syndrome (CVS).
As we age, our eyes lose vital nutrients and the ability to protect them diminishes. Think of what you are doing to help your eyes stay healthy.
Since both of my children are in Chinese school, they have to do A LOT of reading and writing!
See below the one day Chinese homework for my kids when they were 6 years old:
Besides that, they also love to read books….
And play Minecraft or watch YouTube on weekends…
Although I limit their use of the iPad and online, I they still use their eyes a lot.
Many people are relying on reading glasses and contact lenses with the belief that poor vision is inevitable with the passing of time.
However, a proper diet and sufficient supplementation of beneficial nutrients can help maintain eye health.
