Daanish is half-way through his Year 1 mid-year examination. So far, he's done with 9 papers and there are 4 more coming within the next 2 days. The examination covers 7 subjects and includes everything they've learned since the beginning of the year.
"How were the tests, Abang?"
"Okay", he answered.
"Do you think you can get 100?"
"Yes!" replied confidently.
Today is the last day of school holiday, but Melaka is still packed with humans. We were in town yesterday afternoon, wanted to find out what the big deal was with Jonker 88's cendol. We ended up driving home disappointed after spending 40 useless minutes trying to find a single parking spot.
Ayra's school decided to hold their Sports Day slightly early this year. Our Little Princess was extremely excited as this would be her first. For the past week, she had been telling us what she'd be doing for the big day.
The game she participated was inspired by the movie, Madagascar.
The event started off with a parade by the mascots, teachers, and kids as they marched into the hall, followed by Negaraku, a pledge, and a warm-up session, where they danced to the song "Can't Stop the Feeling". From where we sat, we could tell how much Ayra was enjoying herself.
There were two games for the 3-year-olds. When it was the 4-year-olds' turn, Ayra started crying because she couldn't find us in the stands. Her friend, Alisha comforted and hugged her, which was very sweet. She managed to calm herself down and amazingly played the game very, very well.
And everyone got a Gold medal!
When I told the kids we were going to KidZania, they were not looking forward to it because when we went there for the first time last December (during the school holiday), it was 'all queue and no play'. The place was packed!
"If you're planning to go to KidZania, go during the weekend in the middle of the month. This is the time people don't wanna go because it's the 'dry season'."
Daanish sits for his first big kids' school exam today. He has four papers, one for each day of the week, except Friday.
"Are you ready, Abang?"
"Yes", he replied simply.
