One of the worst days for me

Yesterday was really a challenge. Bertimpa2 cabaran yang diterima. Pagi ni, belum apa2 lagi... dah ada masalah. And its only 8:35 am. Oh Dear.... hope things would get better as the day passes by....






Okla.... dont wanna think about it. Just happy thoughts permitted here......




Yesterday, went to see Anastassia do her Pidato Dato Seri Najib which was held at Zaryff's school. As the day before, was the percubaan UPSR for the entire state..... it can be seen that all the std 6 participants fumbled their way through.... So those who did well were mostly std 5 students.... Apa taknya, the night before baru nak start practice.......




I hinted to the organizer that they should be a bit sensitive to the dates that they picked. Tapi sebenarnya tak menang pun ok gak.... hehe. To have Anastassia travel to Trengganu for her Choral Speaking in July is bad enough..... kalau menang, the finals will be in August. Tak kuasa nak let her go anywhere before UPSR.... Duduk rumah diam-diam.... crack the books!! hehe



Anastassia did well, esp kat face expression and intonasi.... however ada tergagap here and there due to lack of preparation. She was frustrated sebab every time practise, dia 100% lancar....


Anastassia with her friends during the competition in the library at Zaryff's school. Mmm.... macam tak banyak buku aje....

Helena, you are what I call a 'professional' mom. I can never be like you with my kids!!! hey, that's a compliment, ok??

Kak Elle said...

Do agree the library kind of small with so little books...mana pergi duit yuran yg di bayar??

Happy holidays Helena:)

rose said...

hai hot mama..
waahh..makin menjadi2 anak2 akak..
especially Anastassia..

nnti dia dapat pegi terengganu ye?
waa..kampung kiter tu..competition tu will be held kat skolah mana?

MAMAMIA said...

Going anywhere for the holiday?

U'r right, the timing of the Pidato is a bit off. Kesian Anastassia, mesti dia frust...

zino said...

ada gaya tu.. menang tak menang tak jadi soal.. yg penting semangat bertanding..

You're right about the organizers not being sensitive towards the Std 6 participants' circumstances. I bet kalau the timing baik punya, sure Anastassia guaranteed ke Terengganu!

But, it's okay - as you said, ada hikmahnya. And yang penting, she participated, did her best and enjoyed the experience.

So, this school break, sure Helena all out with Anastassia's prep for UPSR, kan? Not to worry too much - I'm sure she'll be more than fine for the exams...

Helena said...

myheartbleeds.... alamak... pro ke... hehe....

Hey dont be like me.... I'm a bit kelam kabut tau.... hehe.

Take care dearie.

Helena said...

Kak elle. The school is an old school. So either books dah banyak rosak ataupun they have yet to transfer all the books to the new library.... Library baru dlm gambar tu sebenarnya in a building yang baru dibina.

I plan to ask nanti.

You take care Kak elle....

Helena said...

rose, tak tau lagi bila Anastassia gi trengganu. Latest dapat tau, its gonna be in July.

Selalunya kebangsaan Level tak buat kat sekolah.... maybe kat Uni, or maktab kut.... hehe dah teringat kampung ker?? hehe

thx Hot Rosie!!! *wink*

Helena said...

mamamia.... tak gi mana la cuti ni... nak biar Anastassia settle down with her books....

Anastassia mmg frust... tapi bila dia tgk budak terror yg menang State level dulu pun tak lepas... dia tak rasa ralat la... hehe

Helena said...

zino... yes she has the talent.

One teacher yang every year bawak anak murid dia pegi kebangsaan commented... suara Anastassia dalam... a plus for pidato.... Gaya ada, bakat ada.... cuma kena polish up ajer....

Yes... janji peluang utk menunjuk bakat tu ada....

Helena said...

wan shana.... trengganu is a done deal... dia pegi for choral speaking. BUt pidato tu la.... finalnya tak tau mana but still out of the state....

Cuti ni.... dah almost 1 week.... sigh.... Anastassia still buat homework.... revision belum start.... just cant find the time nak mengadap dia....

Helena said...

marisa.... you read all??? wow.... I feel so honored to have u take the time to do it.

Glad you liked it... although at times, I was just rambling away.... hehe

take care dear...

Hi there bernard...

When you have a daughter who's got talent like that, you should encourage it. Memanglah, sometimes we worry for her studies, but it's ok. I'm sure she can manage it.

My second daughter pun macam tu jugak. Kadang2 bapak dia marah jugak sebab concentrate sangat on her debate/co-curiculum, but I said biar je lah. So far she's done well in both her studies & co-co, altho' they could have been better. As parents, biasalah... we always want the best for our children.

But congratulations to you for your dedication towards your children's studies and school matters. I'm not like you at all... and I'm ashamed of myself :(
