This is a big surprise cum early birthday present for little Shenny.
Papa and mommy plus Shenny went to visit a piano shop with Shenny's piano teacher early June, out of all pianos Shenny tried out, she told papa and mommy that she would like to have "this" model if she got to have one.
She didn't like rest of pianos, because she felt their keys are not hard enough plus felt like playing keyboard. She even gave us reason, since she already had a keyboard at home, she didn't want to have another piano feel like keyboard at home. She was very determine with her choice.
Even, her piano teacher was amazed with her decision because not many of her students do that especially at her age. Normally, those students would let their parents to decide which piano to buy home.
The piano that Shenny chose was for professional pianist and also the price is not within papa's budget. So how? Mommy asked papa, what should he decide now? He told me, if he was to buy the piano, he would consider Shenny's decision as priority.
After pondering for a few days plus her teacher agreed to get us further discount, papa and mommy secretly decided to order this piano as her birthday present, without telling Shenny. The piano got to deliver one week before (25/6/2011) Shenny turns to 6 year old.
Here is the video clip of her reaction to see her chosen piano at home.

Here are two songs she tried first:
