Today morning we woke up early and got ready. Orientation was to start at 8a.m. that day. Got you bathed and dressed then fed you breakfast and it was time to go to school. Not before I took some pictures of you. We had just got back late from KL the day before so no time for you to have a haircut. Doesn't matter...
Daddy dropped us off at school then went back to keep Evelyn company. We started by waiting at the staircase nearby your classroom. I had thought that it was the school hall, but I was mistaken. Soon the children were brought upstairs to the real school hall. Children and parents were welcomed and briefed. After a Wushu demonstration and some information were shared on the school activities, the children headed back to their classrooms. Everything was in Mandarin. A good thing I had friends who were Mandarin speaking who could help translate the work for me and what was mentioned by the teacher. Textbooks and workbooks were given while the parents also submitted some forms which were given to us when we went to school in June to pick the classes. While that was done, you went with another teacher who brought you to important locations, such as the toilet and the canteen.
When all was settled, we headed home and as your textbooks were very yucky, we headed out to buy you a new set of textbooks. Looks like my little baby is all set for school next Wednesday.

30th September was an important day for you and a day my heart was bursting with pride. It was your concert and graduation ceremony from kindy. Sigh.. my little boy is growing up so fast before my eyes.
I was still in confinement and thank goodness Evelyn was discharged the day before. Daddy dropped you off and then seeing that there was already a queue of parents, he joined the queue. Mummy dressed up warmly and then headed to school in another car with Ah Kong and Ah Ma. After waiting for a while, we headed upstairs. As with last year, the school gave senior citizens priority to enter the hall, so Ah Kong and Ah Ma headed upstairs and got us prime seats *grin*.
When everything was ready and everyone seated, the concert began with speeches followed by the graduating children singing the national and state anthem. Next was the speech from the children. I am proud to say that you were one of them. You presented the speech in Bahasa Malaysia.
