Last Day Of Exam..

Today is my boy's last day of exam. Yippeeee!!  The boy and I are going back to my hometown in Sabah next Sunday for 5 days.  Double yippeeee!!! :)  My younger sister takes few days off from work and will be our personal escort throughout our stay there.  My mom has been busy scouting and stocking up on ingredients to cook me delish dishes that I can hardly savour here in KL.  Ian has been so excited about seeing his beloved cousins again..once together, they will not part with each other.. doing things together... eat, play and sleep non-stop till the day they have to say goodbye.  It's a yearly affair for us and sometimes hubby will join us but he can't make it this time due to work commitment. 

Before our "Balik Kampung: trip, we will have a picnic at our neighbourhood park with a friend of two kids this coming weekend.  I can't wait to see the kids roaming around freely in the park, have a dip of their feet in the shallow stream and not worrying about getting themselves wet and dirty.  How often do city kids these days get to do things like that with their packed school related activities? Looking back, my childhood spent in a small town and having grown up in a place where beauty of nature was just a stone's throw away, mine was by far more lucky and care-free compared to city kids these days. That's why I dropped the idea of sending him for tuition, never mind that he is not in the top 5 or 10 in class or worst, drops to normal class next year, as long as he is able to catch up with his studies and not lagged behind, that's good enough for me. 

He got back his Chinese and BM Penulisan papers, which he scored 92% and 91% respectively, good marks to me though there're few of them in his class who scored full marks. The standard is getting tougher and though Penulisan papers are not in the calculation of average marks, they do play a role in the marking system.  When more than one student have the same average marks (which is not uncommon),  the result of the Penulisan papers will be used to decide the position of the student in class.   I keep reminding myself not to set too high an expectation on my son and in the process, turning myself into a "Tiger Mom". *Keeping fingers crossed*

We will go for our "happy hour" after fetching him from school later and also to drop by at Popular Bookshop to grab the boy a book as promised.

Your tension moment is temporary over and now it is the time for you and Ian to rest and relax. I have to manage my stress well until next Wednesday. Good day to you.

Great. My girl hasn't even started her tests yet. However this term, we are much more relaxed. With all the illness we had recently, we have decided to let our standard drop so lets see where that takes us. To normal class will be more than fine with us.

He did well! Marks are just numbers. Come and see my students - all straight As in PMR and there is more in an old dried-up coconut than in their numbskulls. They're just good at excelling in exams, that's all.

Sandakan? Seafood paradise! Have a great time...
