Goodbye, Grade 2

In the blink of an eye, I've completed another academic year here in Shanghai. Last Wednesday, 18th June, was my last day of Grade 2. A few days before that, there was a prize giving ceremony in school. Daddy and mummy were invited to attend this event because I was a recipient of an award...

My classmates and I were all gathered in the gym when mummy arrived at school....she took a peek and stole a shot from behind the door :p

Chatting and playing with my bestie, MY, while waiting for the event to start

There were performances from some of the Co-curriculum Activities (CCA) too. For the 2013/2014 academic year, I joined Junior Soccer, LEGO Club and Junior Choir. For being in the choir group, I got to perform on stage....

Singing "Sing" (from The Carpenters) with my choir friends

Traditional Chinese musical instruments performance... mummy was so mesmerised by the charm and gracefulness of the performance that she made me pick this for my CCA next year!

I won an i4C award.... for possessing and displaying the following core values: initiative, care, commitment, collaboration and communication. 

Proud moment with my class teacher, Ms Mary

Yay, school's out and I will be enjoying a very long holiday until the new academic year starts on 25th August. Looking forward to our hometrip next month!

A Typical Saturday Outing

Every Saturday, when the weather permits (no rain), we like to go out for jalan-jalan. Sometimes, we explore new places of interest (tourist attractions) but on most days, we prefer to go somewhere not too crowded. 

A few weekends ago, we went to a popular shopping area in the city called Jing'an Temple. This is how our typical Saturday outing is like...

Jalan-jalan, take photos... Jing'an Temple in the background. We didn't go there to visit the temple but went shopping in the surrounding malls instead :p

Jing'an Temple (静安寺 "Temple of Peace and Tranquility") was first built in 247 AD in the Wu Kingdom during the Three Kingdoms period of ancient China. Originally located beside the Suzhou Creek, it was relocated to its current site in 1216 during the Song Dynasty. The current temple was rebuilt in the Qing Dynastybut, during the Cultural Revolution, the temple was converted into a plastic factory. In 1983, it was returned to its original purpose and renovated with the Jing'An Pagoda completed in 2010. Source: Wikipedia


With jalan-jalan, comes makan-makan as well. We usually have simple meals of either rice or noodles. For this outing, we had lunch in a sushi shop so we had both :)


More jalan-jalan after eating. The streets here are lined with lots of pretty flowers!

Flower walls... aren't they lovely?

Monster wall... err, this one not so lovely :p

Afternoon tea is a must-have too. The McCafe here serves very yummy macarons!

We usually head home after tea and have dinner somewhere near home (or sometimes we buy takeaways and enjoy dinner at home).

You Don't Need a Reason to Laugh

Daddy and mummy were laughing over something funny (that was beyond my comprehension). Their laughter was kinda contagious because I also started laughing along too...

Me: Hahahahaha!
Mummy: What are you laughing about? 
Me: When I hear people laugh, I also want to laugh. People laugh for a reason, I just laugh for no reason! *grins*

LOL!!! Like that also can @-@

They say that laughter is the best medicine so... just laugh lah! :D
