A REALLY Honest Child

My mom signed me up on some volunteer thing under Soka Gakkai (my Buddhism path, though I'm bordering on free thinking). PIC - person in charge, and deals with kids, that's all I know. On the way there I was just praying for patience and not to strangle any children =.=.

Anyway, it turns out that I'm just there to have a look at what a PIC does (luckily Alison is there... she's 6 years younger than me, but somehow we always get along pretty well)

Some highlights:
- When we were chanting, we usually kneel down. Since I was kneeling behind most people, I couldn't help but look at their feet turn pink, then blue-ish. Mmmm.... blue feet XD.

- Kids say the darnest things
PIC: What do you want to be when you grow up?
BOY: Ngo oi zhou SANN XIN!! (I want to be a God!)

FRIEND: *whisper to me* Tak ge... Oi sei zhin lor (Can... have to die first though)

Ouch ouch, my sides hurt from the double hit.

wow, 10 years is pretty long... my mom brings me to the Bunka Kaikan once in a while when they have activities there... I like the activities; orchestra, dance, backdrop etc. The only prob is that my chinese is not that good, so hard to communicate sometimes

nice to know there's another SGM member in the blog world!
