The school is always active in organizing events to commemorate special occasions. So far, I have experienced of partaking the Qiyamulail (Sleeping Over) organized by the Panitia Agama Islam SK Sultanah Asma to commemorate the upcoming month of Ramadhan. Precious experience that one! Besides that, my KPLI friends and I also involved in the Independence Month (‘Bulan Kemerdekaan’) Celebration; for the Opening Ceremony which was held around 9th August 2009, we performed Dikir Barat with me as the gong-beater. For the upcoming Closing Ceremony at 6th September 2009, we are going to perform an Independence-themed sketch. I had completed the script-writing (Yes, me! LOL) and was told by Ustaz Solahuddin that the school has approve the script.
In conjunction with the Independence month celebration, today (20th August 2009) is being reserved as the day to conduct all the activities pertaining Independence Day. The event opened with patriotic songs-singing ( I bet there is no other working place in Malaysia that demand the workers to sing the patriotic songs; even during my banking days, I hardly sang National anthem! I am loving my new career now!) and then proceeded with the Ethnic & National Costumes. After a session with Marrybrown (Yes! They came to our school), the competition of “Creating-National Costumes-Using-Waste Products” was held. My, I have to say the teachers all were very creative! By using old newspapers and plastic bags, they were able to make fine national costumes! Bravo to the teachers!

Using patriotism as an excuse to act childish? Hahahhaa! Me, Di, Raymond & Apit.
On whole, it was an enjoyable occasion. I have to say my heart was and is filled with patriotism when my KPLI friends and I, the teachers and also the pupils were all singing the patriotic songs. I love Malaysia and to scumbags who try to poison the mind of the youngsters (whether of political, religion or sociological agendas) and jeopardizing the harmony of our Malaysian race, hear this. I am against you. Nobody is going to use these kids for personal agendas. They are the future of Malaysia. Treasure and thread them to live in harmony. Respect each other irregardless the barrier of ethnics and skin-colors.
Teacher Noraini a.k.a. my unofficial mentor is having fun!! Hahaha….
