Self-Praise is No Praise

"Mummy, I did it! I'm sooooo impressed!" Yes, I was impressed at myself for advancing to the next level of a mind-challenging game haha. Mummy told me this is called self-praise and I am not supposed to praise myself like that.

Well, we're talking about this Traffic Jam game again...

Traffic Jam (a ciplak version of the original Rush Hour) - the objective is to move the vehicle marked X to the Exit grid at the bottom.

After months (more than a year actually!) of being kept in a storage box, mummy took this out for me to play again. I started playing this game when I was barely 3 years old. I could only manage the Beginner's level then. There are four levels to this game...

Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Expert

Mummy described the Intermediate level to me as "medium hard". I decided to try the "medium hard" cards today, after completing all the cards in the Beginner's level (Easy).

When I first told mummy about my achievement, she appeared to be very doubtful and even suspected that I might have cheated (bad, bad mummy). She then watched me play (another card) and I aced it without any difficulty. It was her turn to be impressed :)

The triumphant 3-year-old me

The in-deep-concentration current me :)
