Valentine Day = Chocolate Day ?

On the Valentine Day, Shenny happily passed mommy her handmade weaving paper heart shape envelop from school at car.
There were two chocolates inside the envelop. She asked mommy to pick one of chocolates and eat it. Mommy did as was told.  The other chocolate would be given to papa later.

At home, mommy asked Shenny this question:

Mommy: Do you know what is Valentine Day?
Shenny: It is chocolate day.
Mommy: Why?
Shenny: Because you get to eat chocolate on that day.
Mommy: Oh..how do you feel after eating chocolate?
Shenny: ...feel sweet and happy. (grin at mommy)

Mommy reckon this is a very good answer and didn't further elaborate to her about the "real" meaning of Valentine Day.  Let her to think it this way till she realizes herself one day. 
Haha..I guess it is good to let her imagination flow for time-being, I think.

What do you think?

Festive Western song meets Eastern song

Shenny played these two songs during Chinese New Year eve early in the morning.

She was happy that she could practice her songs on real piano at her grandparents' house because she only had keyboard at home.

Both songs were taught by her music teacher (Kelly).
Jingle Bells was played according to piano lyrics (to prepare her to take up real piano lesson next month), while Of The Spring (大地回春), Shenny learnt by hearing although her teacher was kind enough to write the lyrics in her own special way, so that her students could pick up the song.

Here is her performance at her grandparents house.

Shenny also played Of The Spring (大地回春) on her little keyboard when we were on our way "balik kampung" to her grandparents house.
Here is the recording:
