It was supposed to be a Children's Halloween Party cum soft launch of the new school building in Relau. So instead of going to Ipoh with daddy for a friend's wedding dinner, I staye dback and we all went to the party. At around 6pm we (you, me, Ah Kong and Ah Ma) headed towards Relau where the new school is located.
By the time we arrived at Desa Clarissa where the party was being held, it was already rather crowded with students and their family. We waited around and I tried to take some pictures. Several pictures didn't turn out right as I forgot to make adjustments (focus or flash) on the camera. Anyhow I did manage to get a few shots. Here you are with your friend Han Jie and his mummy (he was a little shy to pose for me):
Here's the lollipop which your friend Nicole gave you and your other classmates. She came with lollipops in a pumpkin Jack-O-Lantern container.
As I did not get an itinerary when we arrived, I was caught unaware that your class was to be the first to perform that day. But I did manage to get you dancing to the "Bunyi Guitar"
After all the children finished the performances, many changed into their Halloween costume. We had asked if you wanted a costume earlier that day, but you did not. So we bought you that green hat instead. Then it was time to decorate the pumpkin. When I heard the announcement, I asked you if you wanted to join and you very excitedly agreed to participate. It was a surprise to me as you're usually more shy to join into such activities.. Maybe it's because it's a school function that you didn't feel shy.
Listening to instructions from Teacher Sharmine
When everyone finished painting (the pumpkin, the floor and their clothes-some parent's clothes too!!!) each child was given a balloon and a tea light to be placed inside the pumpkin and we went downstairs. There, the lion dance troupe was waiting. And the mini "procession" began. We followed the lion dance troupe to the new school building nearby. Initially you did not want to hold the Jack-O-Lantern as you were afraid of the fire. But after a little convincing, you agreed to hold onto it. We walked and we walked and we walked and we finally arrived. Before heading back, we took a quick look around the new building (part of it which was opened for viewing) before heading back to the condo.
As it was getting late and we did not have supper yet, we decided to leave. Headed to Farlim for dinner in Tong Hoi Restaurant before heading home.
I expected you to be super tired from all the activities, but you stayed up till 12+ for daddy to get home. Less than 5 minutes after daddy said "hi" to you, you fell asleep.
