Her Holiday Grumbling

Her write-up is like this:

This belongs to 
1. Hau Shenny
2. Qi Xuan
3. Su Zhi Yi
Its a beautiful day and birds are singing and the air is full of pretty insects. But, there is a thing that I need to tell you...even it is Holiday we still need to go and work...................................

Mommy found this piece of write-up in Shenny's school bag recently. Actually, this was written in her last school holiday in August.
She and her friends (Qi Xuan and Su Zhi Yi) still have to go to their daycare teacher house and do their business (work/tuition) as usual even that is their school break.

Hmmm, what do they do normally at their daycare teacher house?
Actually, when they are at daycare teacher house, they sometimes help their teacher to do some house chores for example hanging clothes, rearranging bookshelf, cleansing balcony and etc...
And, they also have their quiet reading time, tv time, playtime and tuitions. Even sometimes, the teacher also bring them to swimming pool for a dip.
Mommy thought this is still not too bad as compared to other daycare centre. Shenny gets to learn something else outside from books.

Halloween Party

Shenny attended her first Halloween Party organised by Kidzspot at Great Eastern Mall last weekends.

Mommy didn't buy any Halloween costume for her as it was quite costly. However, mommy bought her a beautiful mask. Before that, mommy asked Shenny for what she would like to dress like in the Halloween Party. Her answer was to dress like a princess. Hehe..Shenny did look like a mystery princess when she put on the mask with her pinky dress.

Shenny and her friends were excited and curious as this was their first time attended the Halloween Party.
The organiser arranged a few games for kids such as catwalk (which they competed for the best dress up), treasure hunt (which they ran around the playground to search high and low for stickers and then used that to exchange for gifts),trick or treat (which they traveled from shop to shop in order to ask for treats) and other games.

First Story Telling Experience at Primary School

Shenny took part in her primary school English Story Telling on 5th September 2012.
This was her first stage performance at school this year. 

The story she presented was "The Sly Fox and The Little Red Hen".

The story is rather long for her age as commented by one of her teachers.  All other contestants for Standard One told their stories less than 2 minutes, while Shenny's story was more than that. 

Since her story was long, Shenny spoke very fast to deliver her story on time.  If not, she might finish her story after 5 minutes. 
She was seen a bit nervous at that time because this was her first time at school.

Here is the essay which she wrote all by herself.  Some of words like 'actually', 'cruise' , 'balcony' and etc..Shenny was not sure and she did check with mommy, however, mommy didn't give her the answer straight away but wanted her to find out herself through the phonic sound.  She did guess correctly some of words but some were not.

Buddies Reunion (2)

Shenny and her few kindy buddies had a second gathering during second term of school holiday (June 2012).

Thanks for Leanne's mommy initiated the plan and volunteered herself to purchase tickets for us earlier before school holiday began.  This time they had the gathering at Kidzania.   However, only Amber, Leanne, Shenny and Xavier could turn up.

Frankly to say that, one visit is not enough to play all.  They need to make second, third or more visits if to finish all games.

Below were few activities they did at Kidzania.

Leanne, Amber and Shenny were happily chit-chat.
These were our group on that day, include Xavier's sister, Leanne's sister and Amber's two big brothers.
All girls joined nursing, learn to take care baby.
Amber, Leanne and Shenny waiting at Air Asia counter. The waiting time is 1 hour plus.
Shenny worked as Flight Attendance for Air Asia.
Shenny as customer and Leanne as hair dresser.

Amber helped Leanne's sister did nail polish.

Both Shenny and Leanne joined wall climbing.

In fact, it was a real surprise to see Shenny dare herself to do this stunt.  Mommy was so proud of her.

Xavier (and his sister), Leanne (and her sister), Amber and Shenny joined the fashion show at end of day.

Her Hero

Mommy found this drawing in one of Shenny's moral subject's exercise books today.

On Saturday, mommy and papa went for Parent-Teacher meeting.  We spoke to a  few teachers and that included Shenny's Moral subject teacher too.  The teacher told us that she liked to ask her students to draw and she could find some answers through the drawing because through drawing, it could reveal inner side of a child.  Mommy reckons her approach is indeed very good, and make the subject becomes more interesting.

Funny Chat (Part 8)

This conversation happened many months ago, mommy could not remember the exact time. But this was real funny, mommy always thinks of it, therefore decides to keep a log in Shenny's diary.  Let her have a laugh of it in future. :)

Mommy overheard Shenny and her cousins' conversation.  They were trying to compare things they had at home.
The conversation was something like below:

Cousin 1 : I have ipad at home.
Cousin 2 : My father has iphone. I always played it at home.
Cousin 3 : I have Ben 10 school bag.. (this is boy's thing, of course Shenny won't have)
Cousin 1 and Cousin 2 immediately replied: I have too.
Cousin 2 : I have piano at home. (at that time, Shenny still had not owned a piano yet)

Above all items, Shenny didn't have any, she just listened, said nothing.

Her cousins continued comparing...
Cousin 2: My father's car has tv. I can watch cartoon in the car...
Cousin 1 & 3 : Yes, I have too....

Then out of sudden, Shenny opened her mouth...

Shenny: My house has a big SWIMMING POOL.

All her cousins were instantly quiet...and stopped comparing. you think this is a big JOKE?

Her Jewellery Tree

Last Saturday (3/3/2012), Shenny complained to mommy that she had not got chance to do art and craft at home for a very long time already.  Instead of going out, she requested to stay at home on Saturday afternoon.

Shenny wanted to work on jewellery tree, the Christmas present she received last year (<<click here>>).  That reminded mommy of the mission that need to be completed before next Christmas come.  Mommy immediately granted Shenny's request.

For this mission, it took two days to complete.  Shenny worked rather slow this time.  Mommy had to lend some hand for her, else it might take even longer.

Here are some shots of work progress:

First step, Shenny chose to paint pink and red colour on each wooden tree model.  

Second step, she slot the two wooden model across each other to form a tree.
Third step, Shenny painted some spots on wooden model to look like leaves and made some spot on tree trunk too. 
Fourth step, Shenny applied super-glue on each spot, so that she could stick twinkling/sparkling stuff to design the tree.  To do all these, Shenny worked a bit slow, that's why mommy came to help.  
Finally, Shenny posed with her jewellery tree.
Jewellery tree hung with some Shenny's hand accessories.
