For the whole Thursday night, I’ve been dwelling with sorrow. And the emotion was so apparent the next morning that when I went to school, my colleagues said I looked SO sombre. Well, yeah, that’s what you looked like when you just cried vehemently – with puffy eyes and murky facial expression. But yeah, I like to swirl myself with Positivity. To dwell in sorrow is not good for my health – shunning away the Negativity and summon the Positivity is the essence to rejuvenate my mind and my innerself, I always believe. So, I make a pack with myself to NOT letting myself goaded by Negativity no more.

Anyway to recap; on last Wednesday, the school organized some-sort-of Durian Feast (“Makan-Makan”); on courtesy of Kak Sarah ( and last Tuesday, some Musang King Durians by Kak Masitah!). It was a blast especially for me who never opened durians because I am sort-of a pampered son (Yes, I admit I am ‘anak manja’. LOL!) and everything was done by Ayah who refused to let me do anything seemingly ‘dangerous’. So, Kak Sarah and Kak Zuraini were jokingly forcing me to open the durians by using ‘parang’ (machete)!! Hahahahahah! So you can imagine how my DAINTY fingers holding the machete. Hahahhaa! But it was a nice get-together with all my colleagues and we also feasted on “pengat durian” (some soup-like dish made from the flesh of durians) and also rice! It’s been ages since I last ate durians (scare if I were to fall sick); so I just ATE and ATE and ATE! Hahaha, feeling a little bit nauseous and feverish after that, though. But, Alhamdulillah for the ‘rezeki’! (,”)

This morning, Friday 29th July 2011; is the finale of the 3-weeks Co-Curriculum Carnival. The atmosphere was topsy-turvy and what’s more with rain pouring down cats and dogs since 4 A.M. until 7.30 A.M., the initial plan to conduct the Marching Competition was replaced to the Cultural Performances, slated first. I was roped-in as the eleventh hour emcee (MC) for the Cultural Performances since Kak Mala (the initial MC) was having some errands she needed to handle. So, Kak Lin asked me a favour and I have no qualm on helping them too. It was pretty amazing seeing all the uniform bodies representatives performing their talents! I have to say that SK Serendah’s pupils DO have exquisite talents and with brilliant ideas generated by creative TEACHERS, we can go further if only we were given chance to showcase the talents. Bravo!

After done emceeing the Cultural Performances, I went to have a peekaboo at the English Society’s booth where we were supposed to sell old magazines and books. Initially, I was slated to join Kak Sabihah & Kak Halina but because I was roped-in as the last minute emcee, I didn’t have the chance to join them. But I’ve done my part by announcing and gathering old magazines and books from the pupils and teachers 2 weeks prior to this Friday! Alhamdulillah, the books were sold out like hot pieces of cakes!

The marching competition was conducted around 10.30 A.M. All the 5 uniform bodies marched proudly and showcased their sturdy and smart marching lines. Around 11.30 A.M., the school organized an informal “cleansing the school’s compound” competition amongst the uniform bodies and we called the day off around 12.00 o’clock. On whole, it was an exhausting yet satisfying event for all of us, SK Serendah’s teachers, staffs and pupils.
