Of sports, and birthdays...

Sorry, sorry, sorry... Have been busy, busy, busy!

Exams have started, and I need not say more :)

Anyway, before cerita jadi lemau, I'd better post this.

It's the time of the year when anak-anak kita get the tan, or rather - sun-burnt. Yup - it's Sports Day time :)

Hanna took part in the shot-putt event and she got silver for Class 2. Initially she thought she got the gold, but apparently the teachers also took into account the throws made by the students during the qualifying rounds. It's okay, dear. Silver is good :) You can always try for the gold next year, okay? No pics of her because her Sports Day was held on a Thursday and both Ayah and I couldn't be there :( Most parents couldn't make it. Maybe memang the school wanted it to be a closed thingy? I don't know.

Hanna was also involved in the handball tournament. She's in her school U-15 team and they also had the inter-school tourney last week. She was the Wing and one of the Strikers (I think?). Anyway, they won 1, and lost 2. So, their journey to the next level ended there :( But, I know she had fun practising and playing for her school. That's the most important thing, dear :)

Hasya was in the 200m and also the 4x100m events. She just missed the bronze medal for the 200m run by just a foot, I must say. But, YEAY!!! Her team got GOLD for the 4x100m event! We've never really seen her run on the tracks before, and I have to say, she can really sprint! It just so happened that three of the runners in her team were also with Hasya in the state rhythmic gymnastics team, which I blogged about here. Memang gymnasts ni kuat lari, kot? Hasya was also in the Perbarisan and her house - Tun Perak (Green) won first place.

Hilman pulak was in the Baling Bola dalam Bakul event and his team won the silver medal. And I think, if there was a prize for it, he would have also won the "Student Most-Resembling Udang Bakar" prize that day. Him, being so fair and gebu, habis muka jadi so merah! Kesian betul...

Overall, Green House got second place, behind Red House. And Hasya is praying hard that her legs would grow longer so that she can run faster, and beat Red House in all events next year. That's the spirit, my girl :)

Anyway, Mommy and Ayah are SO proud of you guys!! Well done :)

Petang tu, they didn't go for their Chess and Swimming classes. Balik from Sports - semua melepek...

In the evening - checked in at Sa*ja*a Im*ia* Resort again for a triple birthday celebration - Hasya's, Ibu's Idin's and also Sh*dy's a.k.a Mr.Engineer's birthdays, or in short - "HASYIDIN'S BIRTHDAY" :) It was a Pot-Luck thingy with spreads like Nasi Hujan Panas, Kari Daging, and Acar (On*ir's), Ayam Masak Merah (Moi), Ketam Masak Lemak, Lala Tumis (Ibu), Eclairs (J*), Satay Kajang Samuri (yang dibawa dari Taman Melawati ke KAJANG oleh Re*a, buleh?!), Nasi Lemak, Spaghetti Bolognaise dan macam-macam lagi.

Ibu was the games coordinator and the kids had some water games in the pool, which included water polo, and also a race. Who would have guessed - Hilman won the swimming event! (But, errrr...maybe because he was the ONLY one wearing flippers that night? Laju giler...Hehehe!)

We also had a Karaoke contest, and Ayah got the highest score of 98! Fuiyoooo... don't pray-pray, okay? :)

Another sleepover, but, the Kaum Ibu only went to bed at 4:30a.m :)

Sunday morning - left the "Resort" at 11:00a.m as Hasya and Hilman had their dancing lesson nun on the other side of KL...but, not before having a few rounds of Nasi Lemak with Sambal Sotong and Sambal Udang and Ayam Goreng, and Nasi Goreng Bibik Special. Breakfast included in the package, maaa...Kena lah makan, kan? ;)

Everybody had fun. And needless to say - everybody had extra kilos on them that weekend... :) And nobody cares. Hahaha!

Here are some pics.

Dear Shana,
Best betul kalau menang time sukan, kan? My kids belum lagi Sports Day. In May kot.

Meriahnya Birthday celebration!

Naz in Norway said...

Alhamdulillah Shana!
Anak anak you bagus bagus belaka in all arena.
You've done a good job :)
Here too we are nearing end of academic year. The kids go out for long outings twice a week. Balik rumah terus tersepuk macam kain buruk...haha!

Memang best, and selalunya masa Sports Day mak bapak yang excited lelebih, kan? :)

Hanna likes Sports Day coz' she can spend more time with her friends.

Hasya likes it coz' she's naturally very competitive.

Hilman likes it coz' dia dapat FOOD & DRINKS coupons...Hehehe!

Celebration meriah coz' sambut three birthdays sekali harung :)

Syukur Alhamdulillah.

Thank you, dear - but, sports ni I have to admit I don't really push them sangat. Their "talents" were discovered by their teachers :) But, of course once they're in anything, we're behind them 100%

The weather must be really nice over there this time of the year, kan? If I were one of your kids, I wouldn't mind tiring myself going for those long outings. Jadi kain buruk pun tak per... :)

IBU said...

waa... all active in sports!! very good!

my hafiz is so oblivious to sports segala - for now. Kesian i deprived of menyibuking tepi padang. you know me la kan.... hehehe

so what kept you all kaum ibu up till 4.30 am this time around?

ms hart said...

Meriahnya!!! Best...! My girls still recovering from the sun burnt! Walhal marching aje pun. But the daily practice was really taxing on their complexion I suppose. Happy belated birthday to your sweet Hasya!

wanshana said...


Tu lah tu...ikut siapa lah tu, kan?

I dulu, sekolah rendah ajer boleh harap wakil sekolah (netball, rounders, high jump segala), tapi bila dah masuk STF, tak ada chance le nak wakil sekolah coz' orang-orang macam you lagi terror(ists!) Hehehe! Setakat wakil rumah ajer boleh lerrr :)

I think Hafiz ni late-bloomer ni....Give him 2-3 years, and nanti you tak larat nak sorak/jadi pom-pom girl kat tepi stadium... Hehehe!

As for the late night session - to be frank I pun tak ingat sangat what we talked about. Was in and out of "consciousness" coz' penat and ngantuk giler...Hehehe!

Take care, you :)

Thank you, on Hasya's behalf :)

It'll take at least a month before they get their ori skin colour back, I think. Until then, they'll keep themselves amused comparing each other's "belang-belang" kat badan, kat tangan, kat kaki, kat muka, etc. :)

You're right - it was the rehearsals and practices yang buat they all tanned segala, kan?
