My First Day of School Holiday

I did not have an interesting day, considering it was school holiday. I always wished that school holiday would really be a HOLIDAY. But, unfortunately not. If you want to know what I did, check out what my Shaun Shaun TiTi wrote here. What he did, was what I did too :(

Mixed Feelings for English Week 2015

Some of you would have read Shaun Shaun TiTi's blog on English Week. He expressed how happy he was with the prizes he obtained for English Week. He practically won in every event. I am proud of him, especially in his storytelling competition.

I have mixed feelings because there was an event which my partner and I was hoping to win. We had a poster designing competition. There were a few idioms given and we had to design a poster from the idiom we selected. We worked in pairs. My partner and I chose the idiom, "Practice Makes Perfect". We felt that our poster design was eye catching and nice. All our classmates praised our design too. However, we did not win any prize from this event.

Nevertheless, there were two more events. I won 1st prize for the Essay Writing competition and Boggle game. As what Shaun Shaun said, we are grateful to Dadi and Mami because we had the opportunity to practice playing boggle during the Chinese New Year holidays on their handphones.

I am still very grateful to have won for the essay and boggle competition. It was all good for me. God was certainly good to Shaun Shaun and I. We thank God for His grace, favour and mercies upon our lives.

Recycling! Recycling! Recycling!

I love to collect things which Mami disposes and reuse them to make something. I know that Mami doesn't like the idea because she tells me that most of the items I made were not useful, and they ended up in the bin anyway. I can make the silliest thing, but still find it nice. My Shaun Shaun TiTi calls me a rubbish collector. He too tells me it is a waste of time. However, I am still motivated to continue. Perhaps one day I will be able to make something useful.

My latest "invention" which I found useful was my home slippers. Mami challenged me to wear it at home to see if it was really "useful". I wore it but didn't feel comfortable with it. So, I guess I failed. Or perhaps I will one day redesign it to make it more comfortable, when I can get suitable materials to add padding to my slippers.

Have I Changed?

Over the years, many have said that I have not changed. I grew older but my face looked the same. Is it a compliment? Do I still look like a baby?

Here are some photos to share with you. If you see another boy in the photo, it would be my little Shaun Shaun TiTi.

The below is a picture of with my Cousin, a selfie taken just yesterday.

2015 Chinese New Year

It felt like a long Chinese New Year holiday this year. Our family went back to Ipoh on New Year's eve. We left at 5:15 a.m. in the morning and the traffic was a little heavier than usual. However, it only took us about 15 minutes extra from our usual travelling time to Ipoh.

This Chinese New Year was a little sad for our family. Firstly I fell ill with high fever on the day I arrived Ipoh. After two days, Shaun Shaun TiTi must have caught my virus and had fever too. While battling with fever, the family received news that Dadi's uncle passed away on the 1st day of Chinese New Year. 

So, instead of bright coloured clothes, Dadi and Mami had to go and buy dark coloured clothes in Ipoh to wear for the wake services.

Nevertheless, it was still a good trip back to Ipoh, spending time with my Yeh Yeh and Mah Mah. We had a good reunion dinner in a nearby restaurant. Food was good. I managed to see some of my cousins at the wake service. These are cousins whom I seldom meet. I managed to take a photo with one cousin.

We left from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur on the 4th day of Chinese New Year. Traffic was not as bad as expected as we left at about 9 a.m. It took us about 3 hours to arrive home. Praise God we travelled safely. 

Photos are little dark as we took
the photos outdoor at night.
