Tic Tac Toe
Recently, I have learned to play tic-tac-toe. I can understand the concept of the game very well but sometimes I still lack observation and strategy skills to excel in it.
Homemade tic-tac toe... made with Pyssla beads (Don't you just LOVE these beads? hehe) It's environmentally-friendly too... can play it again and again and again without wasting any paper :p
Every night, before going to bed, I will suggest playing (at least) a round of the game first.
Last weekend, daddy and mummy brought home a few bags of "junk" from Mah-Mah's house. While other people are busy spring-cleaning their homes and getting rid of stuff now, they actually brought back more stuff! These "junks" have been stored (left behind) in Mah-Mah's house since they moved out in 2004 (they stayed there for 4 years after marriage) to our current house. Well, among those "junks", they found a TREASURE!
It was one of the MANY souvenirs that daddy and mummy bought on their first honeymoon to New Zealand back in 2000 (The currency exchange was only NZ$1 to RM1.40 then).
Needless to say, this Balancing Whales instantly became my favourite toy. Day in, day out, I would stack and arrange them on my own while referring to the sample designs given. If daddy was around, he would play with me.
Yesterday, daddy told me he was busy with some work and asked me to play on my own first. I didn't quite like his idea so I suggested something better... "You one hand do work, one hand play with me lah!"
So one-hand-do-work and one-hand-play-with-me, he did! Hahaha!
