- High school is a safe time to let children take risk, fail,
learn, and grow strength of character - or grit. Protective parents
can hurt the child, who may acquire a mentality of entitlement and
not the mental muscles to recover from a fall. This Web list is
inspired by Jennifer Meer's article "My parents let me fail,
which taught me how to live" and Salman Khan's view.

say about each attraction? We start from the ferry terminal, course

little natural wonder - flireflies on river bank.

includes reviews about local hawker food.

- Meteor showers are common - appearing every few weeks throughout
the year. The trick is to know which are the major shows, what
days, direction, time of night, and location to view them. Geminids
and Perseids are the reliables; Leonids is famous but
temperamental; Quadrantics are the dark horse. Follow them on
meteor calendar, learn their characters, avoid the moon and light
pollution, wait past mindnight for the bugs-on-the-windshield
effect, and bring a cup of hot chocolate.
