A Note to Aunty

One day, Shenny was not feeling well in school, and she did not have appetite to eat her lunch. Before lunch time, she quickly wrote a short note, intending to put in her lunch box to inform aunty (who prepared lunch for her) on why she left her food untouch.

However, she changed her mind after seeing the food.
Below was our conversation:
Shenny: "Mommy, I was not feeling well this afternoon. I thought not to eat. I write this note to tell aunty. But later I change my mind. I finish the food because I don't want to waste food."
Mommy: "What is your lunch? "
Shenny: "Chee cheong fan ..." (she smiled)
So, that is her answer why she can eat eventhough not feeling well.

Parents & Kids Expo 2013

Shenny's music school took part at the Parents & Kids Expo 2013 in Kuala Lumpur Convention Center this year.
There were about 10 students (age ranges from 6 to 15) from her Ideal Music school to take part in the performance, and Shenny was one of them. Teacher Nicole chose their performance time slot at 1.30pm to 2pm on Sunday (1/9/2013).
On that day, they first met up at Booth B070 Hall 5 which is Young Chang reseller.  All kids had their warm-up practice there before actual performance.
Shenny had to perform two songs, one duet with David on Beauty and The Beast and individual performance on Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Below are Shenny's performance:

Beauty and The Beast

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

And this is another performer (Puah Zheng Yi) who was the Bronze winner (age 9 - 12) in Asia Piano Competition, recently held at Taiwan. He played the similar song at Parents & Kids Expo.
Mommy wishes Shenny would play like him one day.

Farm In The City

After reading a few bloggers' recommendation of the place, finally, Shenny got a chance to visit the Farm In The City last Sunday (28 July 2013).  Truly the place is quite a fun and learning place for kids in the city to visit although the entrance fee is quite dearly.
Shenny was excited to visit the place because she had opportunity to see, feed and touch animals.

And here is the video clip Shenny fed the birds on her palm.  She was extremely excited because there were so many birds stand on her palm to eat grains.  She felt like birds give her palm massaging.

Below were few interesting photos captured in farm:

Shenny's 8th Birthday

Shenny celebrated her eight year old birthday at home two weeks ago.
She invited eight friends and her three favorite teachers (Ukulele, Piano and Art) to her birthday party.
The following were some activities done in the party:
First, Shenny and her bestie Lyn Xuan sang A Thousand Years with piano accompanied by Shenny's piano teacher (Nicole Yap).  A Thousand Year song was initially introduced by Lyn Xuan.  Shenny found the song nice and gradually loved the song too.

Second, Shenny and her piano teacher played duet Beauty and The Beast.  All the guests  surrounded at piano side to listen to this beautiful piece.

Third, Shenny and her bestie Lyn Xuan entertain the crowd by singing A Thousand Years again while Lyn Xuan tried to play the song with ukulele.

Then, they had sometimes to play ukuleles (only those friends know ukulele joined the performance):

 After that, they had some games:

Before party ends, Shenny opened the birthday presents:

'..want to give...but I like..."

This is an extremely backdated post.  It was drafted by mommy three years ago in March, 2010. At that time, Shenny was 4 year old.  Mommy forgot to publish it in the blog.

Here is the story:

Shenny had her after school tea with mommy in Pak Li Restaurant today. While waiting for food to be served, Shenny took out a jelly from her pocket to show mommy. She happily told mommy that she got this jelly from her teacher and proudly added that she was the only one get this in the class. Mommy asked her why. She told mommy she was very behave in the class today.

After our tea, we went to shop some fruits in the Ong Tai Kim Supermarket. While mommy was choosing the fruit, another mommy with a little girl on hand also came to choose the fruit.
Shenny saw the girl cute and told mommy in soft voice, "I want to give this jelly to the little girl". Mommy told her gotta ask the little girl's mommy first, because some mommy does not want their children to accept things from a stranger. But Shenny didn't ask and she didn't give the jelly to the girl.

Afer a while, we bounced into the little girl again, mommy told shenny, if you really want to give the girl your jelly, go ahead. Shenny then answered mommy, I really want to give her my jelly but I like my jelly.. Ah...what kind of answer is this?

Father Day 2013

Shenny would like to celebrate the Father Day in a restaurant instead at home.  Mommy then decided to have a simple dinner at a Japanese restaurant nearby. 
Shenny jokingly told her father: "We celebrate Father Day at restaurant but papa still needs to pay. hehehe.."

For this year, Shenny made two Father Day greeting cards and a handmade fan for her father.

1st Greeting card is quite humorous and made at home.

2nd Greeting card was made at her English tuition class.

A handmade fan with papa's face was made at her Art class.

As Special Guest

Shenny was invited as special guest to perform at a graduation concert organized by Ideal Music on 18 April 2013.

She performed two songs using ukulele as described below: 

1) El Condor Pasa

2)You Are My Sunshine:

(P.S. There was a different between these two songs. 
The difference was that Shenny had performed "You Are My Sunshine" for numerous times on stage while "El Condor Pasa" is the FIRST time. 
Though there was a slight hiccup at "El Condor Pasa", but mommy felt very proud of her attempt.  Also, she spent less than 3 days to practice the song.)

Her Rotooli

This is another back-dated post. Shenny did this in late January, 2013.

The Rotooli is a Paper Craft.  You may view the full process how it was made from this link.

The original price for this craft thingy is not cheap but mommy bought it during sale. The price is at 50% less than the original price.

Shenny enjoyed the process to make it.

Different Kind of Holiday Fun - Meet Ukulele Masters

Shenny and her Ukulele Sunshine Group headed north to Penang during last March school holiday (28/3/13 - 31/3/13).  Not all the members were able to make it.  However, there were a total of 30 persons to visit Penang this time.
The reason for us to head north was to meet up with Hawaiian Ukulele Master Mr. Kimo Hussey and Taiwanese Ukulele Master Mr. David Chen.  They were invited by Mr. Chew (the owner of Manuel Ukulele) to come to Penang Island to run workshops as well as hold a solo concert at Wawasan Open University.  And, Shenny and her group were given opportunity to perform on the same stage with them too as a pre event concert.

Indeed, this is an exciting trip with lots of knowledge gained from the two Ukulele Masters.
Mommy would like to thank teacher Kelly for organizing this trip and also thanks her for driving us to Penang (4 hours to Penang and 9 hours from Penang).  We had a few cars go to Penang but mommy and Shenny took a lift from teacher Kelly's car.  Papa didn't come with us.

Below are some photos of what we had done in this wonderful trip and definitely this is a memorable holiday trip for Shenny too:

28/3/13 - First day activities -
1 & 2 & 3 -> Quick rehearsal in the hotel room group photos at Wawasan Open University's main entrance

Write story

This is a very very very long back-dated post. Shenny did this when she was four year plus.  Mommy forgot to publish this and left it as draft copy in Shenny's blog.

Shenny always wants to find opportunity to use the computer.  Mommy thinks normally she will play games only if uses the computer.   Therefore, mommy sets a rule for her.  She is only allowed to touch the computer during weekends.  If she forgot to ask for it in weekends, then she just loses her chance to use the computer. 

Sometimes she gives excuses that she wants to learn to write her story in the computer.  It means that she doesn't play games but she is learning.  So, mommy has to give in her request to allow her to use the computer even weekdays.  And yes, she really keeps her promise that she doesn't touch the games stuff especially weekdays.

Wrote on 10/5/2010.

Wrote on 22/6/2010.   She made up the funny names.

** Both papa and mommy do help Shenny in spelling of words. Ideas are from her own.

Her Dolls

This is a backdated post.

Shenny still loves to play with her dolls.  Her dolls collection (big and small) were mostly given by her friends and teachers.  She called those small dolls as little children and big dolls as adult.

Shenny complains to mommy many times that she never has spare time to play with her barbie dolls nowadays.  The reason is that her time is filled up with other activities for eg. school homework, tuition and piano practicing.
However, Shenny immediately grabbed the chances to play with her dolls few weeks ago when mommy was not around.  And, she was caught red handed for playing with her dolls when mommy was back.  Then, she quickly explained to mommy that she had finished all the things that mommy asked her to do, therefore she thought that she would be allowed to play.  Viewing that she was really into the mood to play with her dolls, mommy allowed her to continue.

Below are a few shots of Shenny with her dolls:
