Today is the last day of school for Drama Queen and Cass. For Drama Queen, it is the final day for her in that school where she spent 6 years of primary education there and made many good friends. She has gone to the shopping mall with her gang of besties now to have a last get-together.
This year has been an extremely eventful and busy year for Drama Queen. Well, for me too. Yesterday the UPSR results were out. For someone who had only put in 30%~40% effort revising for all her exams, I would say that the results were not bad. I had actually expected worst off results. What is truly unbelievable to me is how she can score an ‘A’ for Chinese Writing!! When Drama Queen told me that one of the As is for Chinese Writing, I didn’t believe her as Chinese has always been her weakest subject. Nonetheless, I believe it was her creativity in writing that earned her an ‘A’. Kudos, Sherilyn!
Today marks the end of a 6-year chapter in Drama Queen’s life book. In 5 weeks, another even more exciting chapter awaits her and me. I pray that I will be able to manage this audacious and fearless girl who will turn teenager in less than 3 months. She has never failed to give me endless surprises, heart-stopping moments and plenty issues to overwork my grey matter, both at school and at home.
Drama Queen’s super hectic year has yet to come to an end. In fact, many exciting events are lined up until year end. She has a certificate and trophy presentation at Kidzania next week (thanks to Gleneagles), an ukulele camp end of November and an ukulele performance at a shopping mall in December. And the highlight of the year for her is not so much completing her UPSR exam but of her taking a flight with Alycia to Hong Kong sans her dad, grandma or me following. It will be Alycia and Drama Queen’s first time flying overseas on their own!! It’s a totally unplanned trip, courtesy of their ever generous aunt (hubs’ sister) in Hong Kong. A few years ago, Alycia and Drama Queen were gifted the same offer by their aunt but I wasn’t ready yet to let go of them traveling without adult supervision. I THINK I am quite ready now as they had traveled overseas several times and are quite familiar with the procedures. I think these 2 sisters will have a blast. After Hong Kong, we will be back in Ipoh for a week and the following week will be our road trip to Singapore to visit my new twin nephew and niece. I can’t wait to cuddle the two cuties.
But first things first. We MUST renew our passports PRONTO as they have expired!!
My healthy breakfast this morning: skinny sugar-free yoghurt with raw instant oats, raw pumpkin seeds, seasoned Korean seaweed, mum’s homemade fish floss and drizzle of palm syrup. A banana (high in prebiotics) and my dose of Izumio and Super Lutein. Pretty similar to what I had for breakkie yesterday. I need to pump in lots of good bacteria into my guts now.
