Art competition

Last Saturday while I was away in Beijing, the centre where Yiu Yiu attends her art class organized a colouring competition and she participated in the category for children between the ages of 4 – 6. The children had to bring their own colour pencils and since I was away, her papa didn't know where I kept her good quality colour pencils so instead, she used the two boxes of leftover poor quality colour pencils that she uses for her day-to-day doodling and colouring.


With her classmate and best friend in kindy, Chloe, who's also her classmate in art class. The two pathetic boxes of colour pencils she used are in the foreground.

The poor dear had a hard time colouring her piece since she had limited choice of colours and the colour pigments didn't dispense smoothly. Nevertheless, I thought she did a really neat job with her piece, except for the monotony of her rainbow :-)


There were also an exhibition of artworks done by students of the centre and Yiu Yiu had her "World of Insects" pieces exhibited.



When the winners were announced, hubby said she was really upset that she didn't win. Aiyo! This girl is really competitive – wants to win all the time. We've to work harder to teach her to accept defeat graciously.

Announcing the winners

See how sour her face was?

Merryn/Mummy Moon/Chinnee - her unhappiness was showing through & through. LOL.

Little Lamb - thanks for the encouraging words :-)

Jazz - really? So Faythe is even more competitive :-)

ZMM - those are pre-printed art sheets from the centre. She coloured them during her class.
