My daughter, Yuan, did well in a BM assessment for Std 1 pupils. To encourage her, I thought a surprise reward in the form of picking any book she likes the next time we visit MPH, would be a pleasant gift for her.
So I said, "Yuan, I am going to reward you for your excellent work in the BM test."
Without missing a heartbeat she asked, "What reward? A laptop?"
Kids these days....
