I was ready to take a helicopter tour over Cambodia’s Angkor Wat recently but glad I didn’t because I wasn’t exactly interested in flying without CJ so for this summer I plan to re-plan the whole thing instead.
Jollibee birthday party
After Disneyland for CJ’s birthday last year, and a submarine ride the birthday before that, I want something he has never experienced before and that is a Jollibee party. I am probably more excited than he is.
School and extra-curricular lessons
CJ’s psychologist recommended a school so I’m going to check it out. Art, music and swimming are up on the list too.
I want to date CJ in either East Asia Royale Hotel or Paseo del Sol before I fly back to Bangkok. A lot of other interesting places came up on my search so these two are tentative, but I hope I can find one that will suit us best.
It is a family tradition but I want to read to CJ this time with more sense and sensibility (Jane Austen addict here :)). Strickland Gillilan’s poem will be my summer reading motivation:
I had a mother who read to me
Sagas of pirates who scoured the sea.
Cutlasses clenched in their yellow teeth;
“Blackbirds” stowed in the hold beneath.
I had a Mother who read me lays
Of ancient and gallant and golden days;
Stories of Marmion and Ivanhoe,
Which every boy has a right to know.
I had a Mother who read me tales
Of Gelert the hound of the hills of Wales,
True to his trust till his tragic death,
Faithfulness lent with his final breath.
I had a Mother who read me the things
That wholesome life to the boy heart brings-
Stories that stir with an upward touch.
Oh, that each mother of boys were such!
You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be —
I had a Mother who read to me.
