Start of Chinese Lesson --- Words Recognition

I started to introduce Chinese Lesson about 2 months back to Dan when we have yet to move house. All started with receive of the below series of chinese books 四五快读. It consists of total 7 books. The first 30 pages of the first book explain to parents the effective methods of learning Chinese. It is very importance to read through all pages if you wish to use the series for effective learning.

There is also a session explain the best ways to let your child remember what they have learned and introduce different type of games for the parents to play with your kids to further assist them in remember those words.

The best about the series is that it does not only teach the individual words, children can start learning forming simple sentances after each lesson...and continue with even longer sentances in the next level of books. Below show the result reap after a week of using the book, Level 1 - We have so far at Chapter 3... (Chapter 1 = 16 Words), (Chapter 2 = 8 Words), (Chapter 3 =8 Words), the progress of learning is going a bit slow nowadays as mummy is real busy with house moving....We shall continue soon to affect his momentum of learning...

Hong Kong+ Macau Trip - Day 4- 24Apr11

Here came the last day of the trip...However we will be staying for another day to bring Dan to the Disneyland.ya just ourselves left....All my colleagues will be headed home in the afternoon flight. I had hotel booked online at Disney Hollywood way before the trip and tickets purchased from Peter on the 1st day we met him.

After having our breakfast at hotel (breakfast included with the stay), we had some free time on our own.. We took the opportunity to uncover the swimming pool, gym and other amenities available in the hotel... The swimming pool is located at 40++ floor and the view is definitely paranomic that the view below (taken from our room).
After sending my colleagues to the Airport, Peter guided us to the Sunny Bay MTR Station to take the disney train to disney to make it a whole Disney great experience...The journey had started once you stepped your foot into the train as you will see Mickey Icon everywhere...

Oh yeah, we reached the Hotel.....
Check in counter...here's the corner for the lil fellow while the adult busy checking into the hotel.... Hotel Room with child height of toilet bowl and bath tub...The Hollywood Disney hotel is definitely child-friendly/highly recommended for those that heading to Disneyland with children. They even provide the bed guard rail just in case your child roll from the bed during the mid of their sleep...
Big Room+ Big Bed = Cozy and Comfortable Sleep..
Whole Day round of Disney Cartoons

After the snacks, we started to Q-up for some Disney Character...but time was so limited.....lots of them tell me nothing much in this Hong Kong because it is very small...however if you have small children with you, you will need at least 2 full Days in order to enjoy the disneyland fullest and taken photos with all the disney characters .... for us we only managed to take photo with Minnie lor.... so sad.....
Hi Minnie, we were waiting for you for so long and finally we met....
The Minnie is super friendly, beside standing still and take photo, she will tease/play with Dan and even give a big bear hug and kiss to him oh~~~

Next, we went for the 4D show...luckily we didnt wait long here...

We reached hotel about 9++pm, we were so hungry including Dan Dan and the noodle that daddy ordered was simply too good that Dan Dan slurped it all up...
If you have not enough of shopping spree in the Disneyland, there is one Disney Souvenir shop in the hotel too....

Before check out of the hotel, we went for breakfast at Chef Mickey.... it is one of the recommended buffet restaurant at Hollywood Hotel...




Everyone of us was having the real great time including our cold cold daddy....look at him playing/bonding with Dan Dan.....





After the breakfast, we took a stroll at the park...something special about this hotel, it has it own park that allows the guests to walk around and a small children playground for the last thing to children remembrance...
























Here's mark the end of our fantasy Disney Trip...of course non of us willing to leave the place especially the young man, look at his upset look...
