Be a clown again?

Attended Uncle Button’s creative teaching with balloon today. He has challenged me to let WaWa clown back in action. Well, for your information, WaWa clown made a public appearance at the Taman Tun Dr. Ismail Park on 23 December 2005 to bring Christmas joy to a group of children from the Rumah Hope.

Thank you Uncle button for your clear, easy and effective steps in sculpturing the balloons into beautiful shapes. I’ve learned that we can see the same thing with different perspectives.  You have inspired me to, once again, use balloons to bring joy in learning, especially to those that face difficulty in breaking through with their learning knots. Thank you for your DVDs. Indeed they are treasures that I’ve found to be successful with the balloons.
