Like all conscientious Moms around the world, I try to introduce a variety of healthy and nutritious foods to my kids.
One of these are pomegranates, which were found plentiful one summer in China.
Seeing how Jamie Oliver cut the fruit into half and whacked the pulpy seeds out with a wooden spoon, I put on a similar show for the kids
They were most fascinated!
Then, I put the pomegranate in one bowl, invited them to nibble off the pulpy flesh and then place the seeds in another bowl:
See the 3 seeds in the blue bowl?
That’s the beginning and the end of the story of the pomegranate. -_-
Now that all of us have to do homework at night, the kids asked if they could listen to music as they worked and I said OK.
I was curious about the type of song they would choose and I laughed out loud when they chose Chinese New Year songs!!!
Thankfully, they chose the more melodious ones and it was really cute when the little one commented that she also sang the same song at her school. Wow, she loved it when her “school” does anything similar to her big bro’s school
And there we were, the adults tapping on the keyboards while the kids did some colouring and some inane English handwriting practice with a Chinese New Year song blasting away.
I am sure our neighbour must think that we are nuts since Chinese New Year is already over -_-
Anyway, I let the kids be because the enjoyed singing to that song so much hahaha.
The song has quite a lively tune – I wonder if it was composed on Sibelius Software?
It’s a really great song because we must have listened to it SIX times before I asked for a new tune
