My Latest Craze

A few months ago, I was hit by the UNO card game craze. For days, weeks and months, I was an addict high on UNO. Every night without fail, just before bedtime, I would drag daddy into a session of at least 10 games. On our fortnightly trips back to Seremban, I would "victimize" Gung-gung instead. With Gung-gung, we could play all day (from morning to night, no kidding!) and he was the only person patient enough to entertain my whims and fancies. I was declared the family's UNO champion after acing the game repeatedly and achieving numerous winning streaks.

Recently, I have moved on to another new card game... "fishing". Again, I am obsessed with this game.

"Fishing" after dinner...

"Fishing" before bedtime...

At the end of this game, some mental calculation (adding up the points) is required. Through this game, my addition has improved a lot. Counting in tens is easy-peasy for me now. I can also pair up numbers to form 10 rather quickly like 1 and 9, 2 and 8, 3 and 7 etc.

I'm also able to mentally add up 3-4 small numbers like 1+2+3, 2+2+4, 5+ 3+1 etc. Daddy doesn't mind playing this with me every night because it is good for polishing up my Maths.
