Spicy Fragrant Wings

Wow! How long have it been since my last post? Sorry for the lack of post. My son's first exam is finally over. Phew! It's so stressful trying not to stress the boy too much. I don't remember my parents and teachers pushing me so much when I was having exams when I was younger. I don't even remember revising for exams. :P Times are different now. I'm not the type of parents who wants their kids to score As. I do hope and wish but I'm happy if he pass, especially when this is his first exam. I think he is the one who is stress because he kept saying he thinks he failed the exams. Sigh! Results won't be out till next Tuesday. But I'm not going to think about it anyway. For the first time, I actually looking forward to the June school holidays. I don't care if the kids make a mess of the house and make a lot of noise at home. Okay, maybe just a bit. I have sign up some holiday courses for the kids. No more English, Mathematics and Chinese. It's magic, science and baking!! My son is already looking forward to them.
