Theme Day: Carat and Carrot

The first Theme Day of the year was held today. Last week, as soon as I brought the circular home, I told mummy eagerly "I choose CARROT!"

Why carrot?

... because I am in K2 Mandarin Elective and our assigned theme was Things Found Underground

Mummy felt that a carrot was too ordinary so she encouraged me to think of something else. She even gave me a few suggestions...

Mummy: How about potatoes?
Me: No
Mummy: A gopher?
Me: No
Mummy: An earthworm?
Me: Eeeeeee... no way!
Mummy: A gemstone? A diamond, perhaps?
Me: *eyes widened* Yes! I want diamond!
Mummy: But I thought you chose carrot? So make up your mind now... diamond or carrot?
Me: BOTH!

So diamond and carrot it was. However, we did not start our diamond project until the very last minute, which was this morning, just before going to school! It was rush-work done in a cincai manner and my diamond necklace was created in under 10 minutes...

Still clad in my pyjamas, I quickly cut out a diamond shape (drawn on a cereal box by mummy)

Applied glue and pasted the diamond picture on it

As for the carrot, mummy just grabbed one from the fridge. How easy is that? :p There was a reason behind why I insisted on bringing a carrot to school.

Things found underground... a no-carat diamond and a carrot ^-^

Now, check out my ENORMOUS diamond pendant hahaha!

The most fun part was what I did after school. Well, here's where the carrot came in. Meet Topsy & Turvy, my kindy's two pet rabbits that I very much wanted to feed...

Feeding Turvy


Extremely cute, soft and fluffy, Topsy & Turvy are loved and adored by all the kids in school, me included. Needless to say, I enjoyed feeding the bunnies and watching them nibble the carrot away.
