• Building Kindy Confidence, One Brownie at a Time

    So our brownies recently went for an adventure together with a kindergarten teacher. She leads a class of young children who need extra help with their English–and how wonderful these children, to learn English using brownies!

    As they are a little weak in their conversational skills, the idea was to let them sell something so that they would have to carry out a tiny conversation with someone. In that time, they would have to greet and make small talk (haha!), introduce their yummy brownies, throw in a little bit of persuasion tactics, make that sale, and offer gratitude before saying “Bye!” Though that may seem pretty easy for many of us, these children needed more work in this area, and this was going to be a really good exercise for them. Some of them did not know the concept of Dollars and Cents, and so a sale activity was going to help explain this in a real way.


    Brownies for Sale!

    Now, they made their own little signs to be attached to their paper plates of P.Osh brownies, and in that they learnt to write Dollars and Cents, with a little bit of Math work too. Beautiful, huh! Ready to go now!


    Would you?

    And so they went around their little kindergarten to sell brownies to teachers, and even outside to sell brownies to passers-by who were interested in getting some yummies for tea! Kudos to the other teachers who were patient to listen and talk to these enthusiastic learners of English!


    Would you?

    Teachers would also ask questions, and get the children to think beyond their scripts and get into actual, real-life, communications. And yes, the children did very well!


    How do the brownies taste?

    After all the hard work, it was time to taste some brownies! Reviews were rave, words of praise flowed, and we blush to see the extravagant praise lavished on those brownies… Well, anyway. So those brownies were an excellent reward for the day’s work, but more excellent were the lessons in English learnt! We hope these children continue to improve and never be afraid of speaking English–well, it’s only as hard as selling a brownie isn’t it? =)


  • Blog = Brownie Log?! =P

    Well, a Brownie Log was what we did for Christmas many years ago…

    Anyway, hello again! Today, we are going to introduce some interesting and important stuff about the P.Osh Blog. There are a million things to talk and write about, but time only for about 1 post a week. So, we’ve got to pick and choose, and bring to you information that would be relevant, useful, exciting, etc. for our dear readers! And of course, we will keep updating everyone about P.Osh–’cause that is super relevant to you, isn’t it?

    Our love for food requires that we blog about food! What kind of food? Well, there isn’t time for bad stuff, so we’ll only take on the good stuff. And so we’ll bring to you information about all kinds of good food around Singapore in a very organised manner (or so we hope!). IF you trust our taste, you may follow our recommendations, and feel free to tell us how accurate we were… or otherwise that we have half-dead taste buds–uh oh. And yes, we happen to have the most awesome grading system ever… BROWNIE POINTS! Though this sounds like some heavenly match up, honestly, we didn’t plan this (we’re not that great!). But why not, we will give honest feedback about the food establishments, and grade them according to Brownie Points. We have always been really strict on taste… but we will try to be gentle OK? Should you know of any place that could do with a review, suggestions, or tips, (or some publicity, heh) do suggest that place to us and we just might visit them soon!

    Our love for what we do requires that we blog about all things to do with baking, chocolates, and sweets! Yes, recipes, products, techniques, new stuff in baking, and everything else imaginable. If we think it might interest you, we will show it to you. So, if you have any questions about these things, do let us know, and we will do our best to help you out! Just don’t ask us about P.Osh recipes OK? =P

    Our love for good requires that we blog about what good our products have been up to! As you might know, our brownies and cookies have been used for fundraising activities and charitable causes for many years now. We have long thought about helping to give these various causes some publicity to let people know about their meaningful work and how they might help out. So we will do our best to shine the limelight on these good causes, and hopefully it will benefit them as well as our readers.

    And finally, our blog will not be complete if we did not share little P.Osh secrets about upcoming products, developments, and stuff like that! At P.Osh, R&D is immense fun and you would surely enjoy being a part of it. Give us your thoughts and suggestions, who knows, you may even become a Brownie Stylist soon enough!

    If we have left out something… oh wait, we must have left something out! So please, do let us know if there is a certain mainstay topic that you would like us to cover from time to time, and we will definitely consider adding that to our repertoire.

    Sounds good so far? Come back next week for our next post!

    Till then, be good.
