School Holiday

Glitter Graphics

It has been 1 week into the school holiday now but my 3 stooges have not been enjoying it instead they have been confined to the house ! And all that was due to the !@#$%^ viral fever ! Started with Natasha who got it on Saturday (1st day of school holiday) and was passed on to Alyiah on Sunday morning and followed by Aidan on that very same nite. All 3 of them were sick meaning all the whining, crying, whimper & grouchy at the same time !

However, alhamdulillah now they are all fine. They started asking for food and that is what I've been waiting to hear from them for the past 1 week. Well...let's not waste any more time, "Daddy, where shall we go for holiday ?"....

How time flies. Just few more weeks to go before we say goodbye to 2008. It will be an extensive holiday since Christmas is also approaching. This week will be last week of school for my 3 stooges. Yesterday they had an end of the year party at their school and all parents were asked to send in a plate of party finger food for the children to share at lunch time.

Moi being not in the mood to prepare anything fancy sent in Karipap for each of their classes. Hehe..coz that was what I had in my freezer - my last stash of Instant Frozen Food ! (Cik Da...cepat hantar stock baru !!!).

Oh ! and the children also received a surprise visit from Santa Claus...Ho ! Ho ! Ho !

MA-NL Gala Dinner

On Saturday, the Malaysian Association in the Netherlands (MANL) hosted a Gala Dinner which was held at the Malaysian Trade Centre in Rotterdam. We were served with food specially cooked by our Celebrity Chef, Chef Ismail and a performance from the MANL dance troupe and Akademi Fantasia 6 finalist, Nadia Haswani.

As Mr Dear just returned from his travels, he was not in the mood of attending the Dinner but as a reward for being a "good Mommy" while he was gone, he said it was okay for me to go, so I went with one of my good friend, Yany.

The food was good and the performance was not bad but what I enjoyed most was the company.

Hoera ! Natasha heeft haar A-diploma zwemmen

Glitter Graphics

Finally all our efforts - Mr Dear for paying, Mommy for transporting & of course Natasha for doing the swimming lessons, have been paid off ! She passed her test for the Swimming Diploma A, which was held on Saturday. For the next level, instead of Monday she will do her lessons every Friday and now, I definitely will not put as much pressure on her as I believe she's got the basics covered.

A day before Aidil Adha, we were invited to a Makan-Makan Do at Comey Lote's house. It was a small but joyful occasion and the food was splendid. There were, Beriyani Kambing, Ayam Masak Merah, Dalca, Acar, Jelatah, Mee Goreng, Tiramisu, Coctail Pudding (all these prepared by her ALONE) and a lot more kuih brought by some of her guests...

Alyiah's Christmas Production

Glitter Graphics

On Wednesday and Thursday, all parents of Year 1 and Year 2 children were invited to watch the children's production of How Big Is A Million ? (adapted from the story by Anna Milbourne and Serena Riglietti).

Overview of the story :

A baby penguin has begun to count and is intrigued to find out how big is a million is. He asks his mother to help him and she suggests that he goes out exploring to find things to count.

On his journey, he counts reindeer, kisses, snowflakes, snowmen, candles and Christmas baubles. But nothing, adds up to a million. Frustrated, he returns home to tell his mother. Seeing his dissapointment, she says she has a surprise for him and asks him to wait until its dark...

And finally, he found his million...stars !

The show was fantastic. The children were wonderful and cute at the same time and they sang very well ! Thumbs up to all teachers and their production team for making this production a succes !
