1st Day of the Holiday

I consider today the first day of my school holiday. I always feel that Monday is the start of the week. So, it feels like it today.

My holiday was a little boring. As usual, Mami expects Kor Kor and I to do some revision. She would always repeat herself by saying that school holidays are the best time to do revision. It is difficult to revise during school days. I agree with her because I would always complain if Mami tries to do revision with me during school days.

So, as expected, I had some workbooks to do. After awhile, I got distracted.

I know my head should not be down,
but this was after one hour of revision.

After revision, I went downstairs to watch a bible movie.

In the afternoon, Mami wanted to do some music theory revision with me, but to no avail :). I had to attend my regular Kumon class at Kumon centre. Was there for an hour. 

After Kumon, Mami made me happy by bringing me to the swimming pool to have an hour swim. It was so fun and refreshing. Of course I did not swim all the time. I played in the pool most of the time.

After dinner, I had to practice my music. Today, Ben Ben Kor Kor helped me with a new song. 

So, that was roughly how my first day of school holiday went by. Boring huh?

Lego Swamp Police - Box Of Bricks Midvalley

There is this new shop in Midvalley called Box Of Bricks. They are located at 3rd Floor. They are having a Lego exhibition with the theme Swamp Police - Catch the Crooks in the Wild. The exhibition is at Ground Floor, Mid Valley Centre Court from 11th to 22nd March 2015 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

We went as a family to see the legos offered, thinking of buying a Lego Technic present for my cousin Tobin. There were quite a good variety of series offered. A few had some discounts. However, most of the lego sets there were tagged as normal priced items. Nevertheless, there was a good teaser for lego purchases which caught Kor Kor's and my attention. With every purchase of RM100 and above, we are able to enter a mission game and we will be entitled to get a free minifigure series 12. There were also other promotions whereby some bigger sets purchased entitles you for a free lego. However, these are very limited. Quite a number of sets were sold out.

There are 3 steps to the Mission Game. 
1) You will be given a small container with lego bricks. Bring the container to the table provided and you will see a laminated document with the instructions to build a lego police car. You just have to build the police car as per the instructions.

2) Once you have build the police car, bring it to a station that has two tracks. It looked like a maze. Run your police car through the maze which leads you to the crooks.

3) Identify the crooks in the Mission Booklet provided to you by circling the crooks.

Once you finished the Mission Game, the police car is all yours.... Yeay!!! Not only that. You will also receive a poster and a cerfiticate of completion. Isn't that great?

It was a great experience for me and Ben Ben Kor Kor. We had lots of fun. If you want to participate, be sure to have your receipt of your purchases at all times. They require your receipt. So, if you are free, do drop by and believe me, it is worth it because you get a free lego police car, and don't forget to redeem your mini figure series 12 using the same receipt at Box of Bricks shop in Midvalley.

My free mini figure..... a little pink piggy

English Week 2015

This is probably my happiest post for the year. I am happy because this is a good achievement to me, though it may seem little to some.

My school organised an English Week last week. There were several activities for us to participate. I won 4 prizes from English Week.

There were 7 students in the class chosen to recite the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Dadi and Mami came to know about this on the eve of Chinese New Year. So, Dadi googled and did some homework. Dadi helped me with the storyline of Little Red Riding Hood, with a good twist of the story. The story was where Little Red was a wolf karate expert who could fight the wolf. The wolf ate Little Red's grandma and Little Red performed her wolf karate moves and the wolf vomited grandma out. From the 7 students, 3 were selected to enter the interclass story telling competition for English Week last week. I had two prizes from story telling, 1st prize within my class and 2nd prize for interclass competition.

Next, we had boggle competition within the class. We worked in a group of 4, but one of my group member was absent. So, there were only 3 of us and we won 1st prize for boggle competition. Thanks to Dadi and Mami who downloaded the boggle game into their handphones and I practiced playing boggle during the Chinese New Year holidays.

Finally we had a spelling competition. However, the spelling words were given earlier to us to go through before hand. I had all 30 words spelt out correctly, and won 1st prize for spelling too.

I was so happy to be able to come back with all my prizes, comprises mainly stationeries. It wasn't the prizes which I was happy about. It was the feeling of being recognized for my hard work.


To side track, last week I cried before bed because I thought I did poorly in my maths assessment. I found the questions tricky and difficult and I just received my paper yesterday. I was so happy to receive full marks for the paper. Yesterday was a double blessings for me.

God was certainly gracious with His favour upon me. Thank you God.

You can check out my Kor Kor's blog to read about his English Week too. He won two prizes.

Another Birthday Celebration - Ah Mah

Ah Mah's birthday falls on 4th March and she turned 65 years old. Oops!! Am I allowed to share her age here?

Ah Ku arranged for a Birthday dinner cum Chinese New Year dinner at a Japanese restaurant serving Japanese buffet. The restaurant was called Fukuden at Jalan Delima. The restaurant is opposite another Japanese restaurant across the street called Fukuya. We initially wanted to go there, but it was all fully booked. Both Fukuden and Fukuya are from the same group of companies. Nevertheless, Fukuden was a great place, serving good food. Mami loves the Salmon Sashimi the most. Dadi enjoyed the Beef Skewers. Being a child, I loved the ice cream the most. Super creamy.

I made a Birthday Card for her. It was a unique card as I made it in a form of an Activity Card. However, knowing Ah Mah's character, I knew she wouldn't participate in the activities written in her card. So, I guess it was in vain :(

There was another page of the card but Mami did not take a photo of that page.

Well, Happy Birthday Ah Mah. May God continue to bless you with good health... and stay young and beautiful.

Mami Loves Me, This I Know

This is a photo of my proud Mami, who loves Ben Ben Kor Kor and I. She constantly tells us that she is very proud of us, as we are handsome, smart and talented in music. She also constantly reminds us that it was God who has blessed us with these gifts and talents. We must use our talents for God. Sometimes, she will remind us of the bible story where talents not used, will be taken away from us. This is why Mami has encouraged Ben Ben Kor Kor to serve in his school worship team with his musical talent. She prays that I will do the same in the future too.

Side track a little, this is my Ah Mah. She loves us very much too. She is the one busy feeding us day and night. Her cooking is yummy! If only Mami could cook as well as her. 

7th Birthday Celebration

We did not do a big celebration for my birthday. We kept it simple and sweet.

My birthday happened to fall on the Chinese New Year period. We had a small gathering with 8 friends in my house, a day before my birthday. It was still a school holiday. We did not inform my friends that it was my birthday. We invited them for a playdate. However, most of them must have guessed and generously gave me presents. They even brought cakes for desserts. We played some toys and danced with X-box Kinect. I realised that some of my friends can really dance well. We ended up drawing as well. Everyone seemed to have enjoyed drawing more than anything else.

On my actual birthday, Mami bought a few slices of cake for our family to sing a birthday song for me at home. I really loved the cake. The slice of cake I chose was a mocha sponge cake. Yummy!!

Mami can't believe I am already 7 years old. Her desires is for my to grow to know Jesus, love Jesus and serve Jesus all the days of my life. Amen!
