一个风和日丽的一天. (Props to my improvement in Chinese) A young boy helping his father to prepare the ingredients for the pancakes. And this photo tells a part of my experiences in Taiwan as I walked down the streets. During my Taiwan trip, I have observed that there are kids helping out in their parents' food stalls. These kids that I've seen, definitely stands out from your usual school kids in Singapore. For most kids in SG, times spent after school are usually by tuitions, co-curriculum activities or most of the time, I call it the "go home club". It's only a handful that i've seen in SG, that kids are helping out in their parents' businesses. Even for me, I belong to the norms. These kids are different because they've learnt skills needed at a very young age, which is communication. And as they grow up, it becomes very natural for them and they are able to communicate well with people. Although they may not have the luxury or the privileges of having the lifestyle of well-to-do kids, their situation can spur them forward if they can make the best out of it.
