In Deep Concentration...

Ssshhh... please do not disturb or distract me. One wrong move can result in a "bloody injury"...

In deep concentration...

 *tik tak tik tak* Guess what am I doing?

Cutting my toenails for the first time! 

Mummy feels that it's high time I learn to cut my own fingernails and toenails because they are growing too fast (and she's just too lazy to help me with this). She's also curious to know... at what age do most kids learn to do this on their own?

Sports Carnival at Sunway Lagoon - Part 2

After the Sports Carnival ended at noon, we spent the rest of the afternoon at the Wildlife Interactive Zoo and Amusement Park in Sunway Lagoon. This was the first time I spent a day at a theme park with my friends.

This was my very first visit to the Sunway Wildlife Interactive Zoo

The 3 little musketeers... with my friends Aaron and Debora

We saw many small animals from rodents to primates, birds, reptiles, deer, tapir etc....

... as well as some large, wild and ferocious animals like crocodiles, puma and tigers 

Rabbits were about the only animals that we could touch here

At the fish pond

We also went on quite a number of rides in the amusement park. There was no crowd so we did not have to queue up for most of the rides here. We went on each of the rides at least twice.

Apache Pots, the spinning cups...

This "shoe ride" (Butch Cassidy Trail) was my favourite! 

BFF... Debora and I on the Wagon Wheel (ferris wheel)

The Vultures... I loved this ride too

The Carousel

Clowning around...

Ice-cream time!

The Pedestrian Suspension Bridge

I was not scared at all but Debora was. I held her hand and tried my best to make her feel secure... how sweet!

Grrrrrrrowl!

After spending about 12 hours in Sunway (including dinner in Sunway Pyramid), we finally felt tired enough to leave for home. Oh what a day!

Meow!

It's my kindergarten's Theme Day again today and the theme for my K2 class is "Animals on Land". For days, I couldn't decide which animal I wanted to be. First, I wanted to be a dog. Then it was a giraffe and then a mouse and dunno what else ... I kept changing my mind so mummy gave me a suggestion. She said "Just be yourself and tell teacher that you are a monkey" :p

Finally, I made up my mind and told mummy that I wanted to be a cat. Meow! As usual, we did not prepare anything until the very last minute. 5 minutes was all it took for mummy to come up with a pair of cat ears and a curly tail (peeled from a kitchen towel roll).

With zero face-painting and make-up skill, she managed to make me look somewhat like a cat, with one of her expired-long-ago make-up tool (a new and unused Estee Lauder eyebrow pencil that she got as a free gift more than a decade ago!)...

Happy cat

Angry cat!

Copy cat (pretending to be cat) purr, purr...

10th Sports Carnival at Sunway Lagoon - Part 1

We had an awesome, fun-filled day in Sunway Lagoon yesterday (Sunday 22/4) at my kindergarten's 10th Sports Carnival. I had lots of fun and came home giddy with happiness and excitement that lasted until the next day (today)!

I wanted this event noted down in my blog and told mummy... "Mummy you start like this... One day, a little girl went to Sunway Lagoon and won a lot of prizes! You must write like that ok". Hahaha!

*Excited* We woke up at 6:15am and reached the Surf Beach before 7:30am

Yipee yay! Sunway Lagoon, here we come again!

The Sports Carnival is held once in every 2 years. We also attended the previous event (the 9th) back in July 2010

The Surf Beach, where all the main events were held

Since we were early, we headed to the Creative Corners (game and activity booths) to while away some time...

I played almost all the games and won many small and cute gifts here

Doing stretching and warming-up exercises in the water... the carnival begins!

Mrs Headmistress launching the event

We were among the 1250 (record-breaking number of family members) who thronged the carnival 

Doing the mass-drill... an upbeat dance routine by the K2 pupils from all centres

Getting ready to take part in the sand-sculpting competition

Our Mega-Bloks sandcastle slowly taking shape... (mummy did not even take a photo of the completed sculpture because she did not anticipate that our simple design would win anything)

I did not help daddy with the sandcastle (I felt bored after a few minutes) and sneaked away to join my friends in the pool

Having a splashing good time!

Unveiling the daredevil in me... I went on this giant slide twice! 

Telematch time! I took part in 2 events... the "squeeze water into a bottle challenge" and the "drag the giant floatie race".

Go, go red team! However, no thanks to some kiasu parents who kept "taking over" the kids' roles and ignoring the games marshall's repeated warnings, our team was disqualified in the first event :(

Our lunch... KFC set meals

Enjoying my Colonel burger... this is probably my second time eating KFC, a very rare treat indeed.

Throughout the event, there were non-stop announcements for all the lucky draw, games, best this-and-that and competition winners. While having our lunch, one of the announcements caught our attention. Surprise, surprise! Daddy nearly choked on his chicken when we were announced the first prize winners of the Sand-Sculpting Competition!

1st prize winners... it's unbelievable!!! Honestly, we really did not deserve this win and felt sorry for the other teams who came up with much better designs than ours! *shy*

Finally... leftover gifts up for grabs just before the carnival ended!

Our prizes and goodie bags... both daddy and mummy suffered from sore arms after lugging these HEAVY stuff (including our personal belongings of bags, clothing, water etc.) from the theme park to the carpark, which was quite a distance away!

The most fun part... opening our presents! These two yellow boxes are the biggest prizes that we brought home. A very big thank you to the sponsors for their very generous contributions!

Philips radio/CD-player and DVD player. 

White board on a metal easel

Toys and misc stuff

Water tumblers

Vouchers and Pelikan gift pack

Stuffs inside the Pelikan gift pack

Sunway Lagoon's All Park entry tickets for 2 adults worth RM150

Collectible magazines and a very interesting book, Hotel Tales (it's a very good read especially for people like us who love to stay in hotels ;))

Other miscellaneous small gifts

Although I did not win any medals this time around, I did not feel any less happier. To me, the things here are worth much more than a medal *wink* Mummy has already given away many of the things here and she will be giving away more although I would like to keep EVERYTHING to myself hehe. You'd be surprised to know what I picked as my favourite present here... The Hot Wheels toy car set!

The Wonderful World of Ruoyi
