The Big 4

30 10 2011

No, we’re not talking about the Four Heavenly Kings 四大天王 and neither are we talking about the BPL teams of Man United, non-MU, non-MU and non-MU (go make up your own teams).

Yup, I’ve just turned 40!

Some may say that “40 is the new 30” and also “naughty 4-noughty” but whatever said and done, I hope I’m older AND wiser.

My birthday wish is for all family and friends to have good health and plentiful wealth.

Not enuff money to put the "nie" to Ronnie?

Happy birthday to ME!!!

Graduation Day 2011

29 10 2011

Today marks the graduation day for both Julia and Jason from Year 6 and Year 4 respectively. Well, technically it’s a pre-graduation celebration as both of them have yet to sit for their year-end exams. I guess the school didn’t want to distract the kids from their exam preparations, thus doing it earlier.

This year’s event would be a long one for both the missus and me, as they did the Year 3 to 5 session in the afternoon, leaving the Year 6 graduation ceremony towards the evening. That means we’ll be there from noon till night!

Jason’s dance performance seems an improvement compared to last year. His reflexes and co-ordination looks much better now.

Jason again got the Best Improvement Award for the second consecutive year. I guess he’s slowly but surely improving. WELL DONE, SON!

By the evening, it was time for Julia to graduate.

My princess graduates today

Once again, she proved her abilities by getting an award for the third consecutive year… two awards, in fact. The first being Best Reader – English, which was her second consecutive year getting it.

The icing on the cake was snagging the Best Reading Competition (English), which was held onstage during the event. She was pitted against three other children of equal caliber and she easily outdid them. WELL DONE, GIRL!

Darn it! I need a better camera

Next year will see Julia going to primary school in Standard One, while Jason will be enrolled to a new kindergarten in Midah. Here’s hoping they will carry on with their studies diligently and make all of us proud.





Birthday Gift for Myself

28 10 2011

My birthday is coming soon, and this being a BIG birthday (noughties are always big), I decided to get myself something special.

It’s a CD of my favourite Japanese band, Anzenchitai 安全地带, with their latest album 安全地带 XII which wouldn’t be released so soon in Malaysia and wouldn’t be easily found as well anyway. So I did the next best thing: I ordered it via the net from Hong Kong and voila!

安全地带 XII

Arrived just in time before we moved office, otherwise FedEx would have returned it to sender.
