Pre-loved Books: Sweet Valley Twins # 2 Teacher's Pet

Synopsis:

Playing favorites...

Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield are the best dancers in their ballet class. Both girls want to dance the solo in the upcoming recital. Elizabeth hates to compete with her sister but Jessica doesn't mind at all. She knows she's a better dancer than her twin. The problem is their ballet teacher. No matter what Jessica does, Madame Andre never notices her. But she's always praising Elizabeth.

It's not fair-and Jessica isn't going to settle for second best just because her twin sister is the teacher's pet.

Pre-loved Books for Beginners

I have been running out of space in my book case so I have to let go of some books. Unfortunately for me, as I love all my books and it's not easy which ones to give up. But fortunately for others, I decided to select a few to give away for free!

DOG ON LOG - this book is suitable for 3-5 years old and great for children who are learning about phonics and can read one-syllable-words. My daughter was given this book when she was in kindie. It is in very good condition and looks good as new. 



A ROYAL WEDDING and FAR FROM HOME - Original short stories of the princess-type-setting. All pages (maybe 5 or 6) are cardboard so these books are really sturdy! A little bit more challenging than the Dog on Log. This would be suitable for 4-7 years old maybe. It's not the ordinary words children encounter at the same time the story is not too lengthy to tire them.


For anyone who is interested, please let me know in the comments section. Pay only the shipping cost :)

Camilla by Madeleine L’Engle


Synopsis:

Fifteen-year-old Camilla Dickinson has led a sheltered life with her architect father and stunningly beautiful mother. But suddenly, the security she's always known vanishes as her parents' marriage begins to crumble-and Camilla is caught in the middle. Then she meets Frank, her best friend's brother, and he's someone she can really talk to about life, death, God, and her dream of becoming an astronomer. As Camilla and Frank roam the streets of New York City together, lost in conversation, and he introduces her to people who are so different from anyone she has met before, he opens her eyes to worlds beyond her own, almost as if he were a telescope helping her to see the stars. But sill Camilla's first love be all she hopes, or will Frank just add more heartbreak to her life?

Is It Too Late Now To Say Sorry?

I felt like singing this song now for an epic fail that just happened this morning on my way to work.

While waiting for the bus I started plugging my earphones because I was getting bored. At that moment the bus came so I quickly alighted before I could even play the music.

A Most Unforgettable Yum Cha Date

Last Monday, Ddith and I went to this Yum Cha restaurant that is close to the office. I was initally gonna take my husband to this place after my exams because we haven't spent quality time in a while. But he had something else planned for our family so I went with my big sister in the office instead.

It was an all you can eat voucher which I never bothered reading the fine print. We have never went to this place before and when I read the reviews, I was kind of disheartened. I expected a little bit of trouble so I printed both the voucher and booking confirmation. Surprisingly, when we arrived around 11:30am they just asked for my name and then seated us without hassles. We didn't even have to wait long.
