flown the nest
usually a trip down to The Little Red Dot during christmas would be a happy event for the wife. the lights, the shopping (not necessarily buying anything) & the festivities are sure to put a smile on her face.
not this time though.
we sent the little girl (she'll always be our little darling!) to boarding school yesterday. well, actually we helped her settle in the hostel with her stuff. the orientation, including buying uniforms & books, applying for student's pass, opening bank account, etc. starts this week.
it helped that her current school-mate who was also accepted into the new school is her room-mate. the other roomie turned out to be a cousin of another ex-schoolmate. friends....that's an important good start.
what's more crucial was that we were able to attend church & met some members, including the pastor, who offered to sort of "foster" her & help bring to her to church & related activities.
as expected, for the wife & the boy, both were all tears when it was time to leave.
for me, it's time for the eagle to soar.
**a note of thanks to Ling who also kindly offered her help . because it was a short trip, i didn't manage to contact her**
