We held a Christmas party for our TD kids in Nangka this very sunny afternoon. I was having a headache so that put me into kind of a grumpy mood. But of course, I still managed to be cheerful and all smiling with my kids.
Two of the seven kids I tutor were absent for the Christmas party. I have a feeling they didn’t attend on purpose because… well, one of my kid’s family lives in a cardboard shack less than two square meters large. They are that poor. I guess she was too ashamed to show up without exchange gifts for her classmates? (It shouldn’t matter, right?) It makes me sad.
