I still remember Kimi and I spending the whole hour in front of the television, being entertained by a group of characters called "muppets" consisting of a big yellow bird (Big Bird), a green gouchy one that lives in a trash can (Oscar), a blue muppet monster that loves cookies ( Cookie Monster) and the list goes on.
I learned a lot from Sesame Street. How to count (Count Von Count), how to "follow the arrow" (the song sometimes play in my head whenever I exit shopping malls..hehe) and how to be kind and generous.
Here are some of my favourite muppets which were my teachers and friends:

But my favourite muppet is:

Oscar is cool and tells it how it is. That's why he is my favourite. What is yours?
