I was in Primary 5. My sister, when she was at my age, could use a phone. According to my mom, its purpose was solely for my sister to use at her tuition. But she treated it like her own and my mom said nothing. I mentioned it to my mom a lot of times and also asked for a phone myself but kept getting rejected. Even when I had tuition, my mom did not let me have a phone to bring around. After PSLE, my mom finally was willing to let me have a phone.
I was in Primary 6. I made a deal with my parents. If I hit 245 for my PSLE, I must get a Xbox 360. After a bit of persuasion, they agreed as I was aiming to beat my brothers PSLE marks. I got 246. In the end I got my Xbox 360.
