November 2019


FROM THE EDITOR refer to page 5

Hi, We are selling this magazine. But we will keep it running at a high quality as it has been of, until we find a confident person to take over. More information of selling please refer to page 5. Both of us have been working respectively besides running this magazine since June 2015. Four years have come and gone. Over these years not only did we manage to make Your Child in Monash blossomed but also we got to meet many successful and determined business owners in the areas of Monash, Dandenong, Knox and beyond. Meanwhile since then my workload in a school has increased steadily every year and finally these two years being a full-time teacher besides running the magazines is taking its toll on me. Therefore we have decided to hand it over to another person, who is ready to make changes in life, with ambitions to increase family income, and to improve our local communities. Look forward to talking to you.

Editorial Are you racking your brain for unforgettable birthday party ideas for your kid? Or struggling to come up with something original and next level fun? Maybe even with an educational slant? If so, you can look not further - Reptile Encounters has got all of the bases covered for you! Just in case you don't know us, we're Melbourne's Premier Mobile Zoo and we've been throwing legendary kids' birthday parties all over Victoria for more than a decade! In between parties and events we keep ourselves busy delivering fun-filled, inspirational and highly educational wildlife programs to schools. We've been hosting super duper kids parties at our swanky new HQ in Burwood over last year and we'd just love for your little one and their pals to be next on our list. And how else could they tell their pals that they're on the guestlist next to a Saltwater croc, a Port Jackson shark, a Woma python and heaps more?! But as well as our star-studded cast of beautiful and fascinating creatures and characters from across our island, here at Reptile Encounters we pride ourselves on our super-friendly and switched on wildlife ambassadors. Our ambassadors are mega-passionate about the animals they deal with, but on top of that

they all absolutely love the kids they introduce them to and helping the interaction between them. As seasoned pros with top notch people skills, they're used to dealing with kids from tots to teens and shy to confident, and experts in getting each and every one of them comfortable and interacting. We'd bet there's probably one big question on your mind right now: safety. Well, you can relax in the knowledge that all are shows are 100% safe for kids of all ages, and all our ambassadors are comprehensively trained and boast a wealth of experience. And our purpose built Reptile Encounter HQ in Burwood is just the ultimate party venue! Open both on Saturday and on Sunday and with 1 ½ hour party slots throughout the day, it has space for up to 20 kids. We also have BBQ hire or BYO party food so you don't have to ferry all the regards over to the local KFC! Party slots at 10-11.30am, 12.30-2pm and 34.30pm Open both Saturday and Sunday BYO party food or BBQ Hire available Space for up to 20 children So if you would like to meet some of our amazing critters head to reptileencount ers.com.au or give us a call today on 1300 4 CROCS (27627)!

⼼理测验

图中你第⼀眼认为这是什么词?测出你的性格,有 些准哦!

A、爱你 别人眼中的你:虽然有时候会给人有独来独往的印象,但实际上的你是很慷慨大 方,且是个会和朋友分享的人。面对困难通常很有干劲,拥有非常坚强的意志, 不轻易认输;性格直爽,是一个负责且成熟的人。 实际的你:有点懒,喜欢用聪明的方法做事,为自己争取休息时间。任何事情都 希望做到最好,大多要求完美,是完美主义者。神秘。总希望别人了解自己内 心。 很珍惜身边很多朋友。敢爱敢恨。不过不喜欢的人你就不会去管。慢热。在没有 信任这个人之前,会保持距离。你渴望受到他人喜爱,却对自己吹毛求疵。 B、受伤 别人眼中的你:一个很聪明、很负责任的人,领导能力很强,身边的人大多对你 很信任,也很尊敬。外冷内热,对不熟的人会保持界线,很有距离感。自我保护 的意识比较强,不喜欢让人看到脆弱的一面。对于内心认知的好友都很力挺,是 个很讲义气的人。通常给人乐观、积极和勇于面对困难的感觉。 实际的你:真正的你其实十分成熟稳重。脾气不太好,但为了顾全大局,常常会 对很多事情忍耐。生性乐观,健忘不记仇,只要对方没碰到你的底线,一切都是 过眼云烟。 你对不熟悉的人大多保持距离,不是那么容易接近,混熟之后才能敞开心扉。你 平常不拘小节,但碰到自己在意或觉得重要的事情却不愿妥协,显得比较固执。 你经常表现出不在乎、无所谓的态度,其实内心别扭得很。虽然你的外表看起来 活泼、大方,但在面对感情的时候你是很缺乏安全感的。 C、爱作 别人眼中的你:强烈的故作坚强的性格,很多时候自觉委屈不想表现出来,不过 其实大家都看得出来。对于别人的请托不太会拒绝,是很可靠的一个人。别人对 你好定加倍奉还的代表,是值得信赖的人。 实际的你:善于隐藏真实的自己,除非是与你相当亲近的人,否则无法注意到你 的优点。你能替他人着想,面对意见不相同的情况,大多试图改变自己迎合对 方。跟你交谈后,就知道你很好相处。 你很怕麻烦别人,什么事都自己来,自尊心超强,经常因为不想自己给人看扁就 硬撑。面对感情,你虽然不会以貌取人,但对于另一半的外表还是有一定程度的 要求。 To advertise in Your Child in Monash call 0425 301 986

倦 鸟

编 者 随 笔

每年到这个时候,总是感觉无比疲倦。 或者是澳洲假日安排不均匀的原因。上半年复活节女王 节各种节日,铆足了劲让大家享受人生,下半年却能从七月 开始一直到现在,都要勤勤恳恳干活。日复一日,年复一 年,这怎能不让人疲倦? 日复一日的还有工作。作为一名老师,送走一批学生, 明年又有一批。学生们高考完欢呼雀跃,明年却还有一次高 考等着我,明年之后还有后年,直到有人能够接手。一些同 事看到学生毕业,无比激动,热泪盈眶,我一开始也是如 此,可是渐渐,自己的心大抵也疲倦了,竟然很少有起伏的 心情。除了感叹时光走得太快,竟也唤不起其它感想。这像 死水一样的心境,真是要不得。 这样的心境在太阳普照,万物复苏的春季更加格格不 入。 遥想那时生完小宝回去工作,只是上半职,通常教完几 节课就可以回家,回家小憩一会,或者带着妈妈和小宝去商 场逛逛,又或者在这样的春日里,踱步在林荫道上,看着这 树花开,那树争艳,走到大宝的幼儿园,带她回家。那时的 时光总是很长很长,仿佛永远不会天黑,我有那么多的时间 给孩子,给家庭,给自己,那才是生命本来该有的样子啊!

有时希望中彩票,这辈子就不不用再工作。当然,这种极小概率事件 每个人都会想想,却都很少实现。再看看现在的工作,全职,工资高了, 可是税后其实又高了多少呢?单位有一个职位比较高的人,整天疑心我是 不是要取而代之,其实她真的想多了,高一点的职位,工资多了一点,却 几乎不能给家里人任何时间,要出差,要日夜颠倒,谁稀罕呢?但可笑的 就是,人家却看成宝,生怕被人夺去。谁说外国人不在乎钱?人生观的不 同并不是只是因为人种,就是个人之间的差别。 工作是让我最累的地方了吧。几年前换了领导层,一阵血雨腥风之后, 新的领导踢走了很多之前同事,安插进了自己的眼线。新官上任三把火, 每一片都要把它燃烧净了,才安心种上自己的野心。

规矩多了,一言一行都有人监视着,这也不行那也不行,因为新的领 导深信听话的员工才是好员工。可是在你来之前,单位的风气是多么和 谐,要成绩有成绩,要氛围有氛围。为什么人总要做这些画蛇添足的事情 来显摆自己的能力呢? 我管这些叫心虚。大象无形,大音希声。真正有能力的领导是懂得让 每个员工发挥最大的能量,而不是让每个人都变成她的牵线木偶。而真正 好的工作应该是生活互补的调味剂,不是如此让人心累又神倦的突兀存 在。 现在我大抵知道自己的累并不是来自巨大的工作量,而是因为心灵的 不自由,还有人事相处的厌恶。我要有一座房子,面朝大海,春暖花开。 海子如是说。我有了这样的生活才知道,原来这样还不够,住你旁边的不 能是牛鬼蛇神,不然也白搭。 To advertise in Your Child in Monash call 0425 301 986
