The Waiting Game Part 2

I'm a nervous wreck! Sometime this week or next week, we would be bound to know which school Anastassia would go to next year.


Most of you would wonder why I make a big deal out of it. To tell you the truth, the reason for me encouraging the kids to be active in their koko and to excel in their studies are all because of this. So that they go to a good secondary school. Obviously getting in a normal sekolah harian doesnt mean the end of the world, its just that this is the target I set for my children since their first day of schooling ..... try to get into a boarding school..... a good one if possible.


However I lot of things happened during the waiting game.


1. I turned 39 on November 24..... hey I actually remember my actual age!! haha. Itupun pakai calculator nak kira hehe...... Seriously... I stopped counting at 30......

2. On my birthday, I got 2 nice suprises..... one was that Anastassia masuk paper...... it was a nice suprise considering that although reporters did come to the school on the days UPSR results were out, we found out that they received instruction to publicize luar bandar schools that had good results. And sekolah the kids tak masuk category.....

Gambar kecik..... tapi okayla..... suka sakan la si Anastassia....


3. On my birthday also, I got a call informing me that Anastassia has been nominated for the State's Pelajar Cemerlang Kokurikulum. Mmm..... memang terperanjat..... and it will be a tough fight but to be nominated is such a big thing for us already. Results would be in Jan- Feb time frame I guess.


4. Zaryff makin montel! Alahai..... Kakak Mia said that his face looks like a balloon now. I must do something la.....


5. Anastassia won a consolation prize for an Art competition...... Pu3 did not win but the goodies bag was great so budak yang tak menang pun akan rasa dia menang ..... hehe. Yang kelakarnya, the girl yang menang sat next to Anastassia during the competition.... and dok copy Anastassia's ideas...... tapi her shading is fantastic.... itu yang boleh menang tu..... Lagipun judges dia are the typical chinese judges whereby ada certain type of coloring yang they go for. Compared to my children in which cikgu seni mereka lebih tekankan cara menghidupkan lukisan..... so buat artline and all is a no-no....

So now tengah cari the right time nak use that hotel vouchers..... hehe


Hey, sorry you guys, I havent been hop-blogging for a while...... Hope to start again soon.... miss reading you all punya stories and going-ons.....

Helena said...

hi rizza... thx...

Pu3 came to me and said "Mama, Pu3 dah buat card untuk mama tau" and then she looked at me "Cantik tau" She looked at me again. ( I was wondering, so mana cardnyer)

Then she said "Kita buat cantik sangat mama, tapikan lepas buat tu kita tak tau kita letak mana....."

Hehe..... sweet2 Pu3 will always be my princess..... its the thought that counts sayang, I told her....

Hi Helena

My first time here. To reciprocate your kind visit to my blog. Hmmmm.... interesting stories about your kids and family. Very colorful. Happy belated birthday to you. You share the same birthdate as mt 4th Ace, Alina. I wish she is as gungho as you. I hope Anastassia will get an entry into KYS. It is a very good school, dynamic! I have best frens who have kids studying there and have personally interviewed ex-students from KYS. I envy moms who allow the kids to go to boarding school at 13 years. Both hubby and myself although are exboarding schoolers, we have different view. Will try to bloghop again here in the near future.

Helena,

Happy Belated Birthday. Stay 30 always... Hehehe!

Hmmmmm, I pun anxious nak tunggu Anastassia's KYS's interview results ni. I doa'kan she'll get it, insya Allah.

Update immediately after getting the results, okay? ;)

Take care.

rizza said...

Mama Rock said...

ps - happy belated nirthday to you and congrats to anastassia for her 5A's.

cikdinz said...

hepi besday kak.
kira tahun ni dapat hadiah best lah ye...

Helena said...

hi tireless mom..... great of you to come by....

So me and Alina shares the same birthday eh? fantastic! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALINA!!! I just love the date 24 Nov.... angka genap.... the word november pun ada ump.... hehe .... mulala i ni entah apa2.... but i coundnt have picked a better date to come out to the world...hehe

gungho? hehe... thats a first.

Yup I'm all for boarding schools... you're not? ye la... both ada pros and cons.... tak kisah actually kan, mana2 boleh belajar....

yes kys is good.... very good indeed.... i hope she gets a placing but to tell you the truth, it being a private school bothers me, esp now that sri inai closed down.. padahal in the biz since 1977... kesian kat pmr n spm students....

Im stil looking at her options.... kys like i said is very2 impressive... sbp... mrsm altho lambat tau results - feb....

Hey. do drop again yeah?
