Who said homeschooling can only happen at home or near home? We are taking homeschooling overseas. That’s right, we are taking it to Hong Kong!
As the smarties get older, I have given them the responsibilities to pack their own luggage. Each of them have their own trunki to be responsible for. The smarties were really excited over this trip and they packed loads of “what they want” into their cute little luggage. Not surprisingly, as it turned out, this is the way they take care of their luggage: siting on it and having us to pull them along. (Did my plan backfired?)
Right before we checked in, we saw some really nice display with the use of cardboard. It was set up to celebrate the nation’s SG50 birthday and we managed to take some photos before heading to our gate.
Changi Airport’s Control Tower
Kallang Airport Control Tower
Right next to the cardboard exhibits was a wall full of luggage cases. It is displayed in a way of a ferris wheel representing Singapore Flyer with greetings attached on it. This idea is totally cool!
When we arrived in Hong Kong, we waited for the bus to get to our apartment. No fussing and no running around. So here they are stuck with us in the queue. Once we were on the bus, they noticed the difference. “Mummy, why this bus has luggage compartment while Singapore bus doesn’t have?”, asked the smarties. Along the way, they noticed the taxis are all in red while Singapore taxis are mostly in blue. Great awareness and observation, kiddos! Keep it up! But poor mummy and daddy have to keep answering their questions non stop throughout the journey…..
With a full satisfied tummy, we headed back to our apartment for a good night rest.
Stay tuned on what we did the next day of the homeschooling trip. 😉
