these are Kaira's friends whom she plays with quite often. And thanks to them and their mummies, she has the opportunity to practice her Mandarin :)
when i look back, i see this really as a testimony of trusting in God's perfect plans and not worrying.
I remember when i first arrived in Netherlands, i was concerned how well-versed Kaira will be in chinese and also lamenting the fact that there are no "chinese enrichment classes" here for toddlers unlike in singapore.
Now, i am thankful that she has "good teachers" and a conducive environment for learning mandarin -- from our Chinese and Taiwanese friends. So much so that, i felt when we were last back home (fr Dec to Feb), her mandarin took a step back cos she was not exposed to it daily like now and she doesn't practice speaking it as frequently as she has to here. ;p
the next challenge i guess is character recognition and writing. that, i suppose, i will have to cross the bridge when it comes.
(the kids were watching cartoon. that's why i could capture all of them in one shot! otherwise, it's quite impossible ;p )
