My Little Cutie Tin Man.

Sean was selected to the be the Tin Man in the school play.  A quick visit to the tailor with with some silver material - the suit was done.  When it came back - the suit was actually too small.  Hence - I decided to piece together a vest to cover the catastrophe.  Luckily it all worked out.

Sean looked pretty cute but he complained so much about the itchy silver material.  Plus to put silver face paint on him - I am telling you that this boy is quite wicked.  Plus I had to add more makeup like the eyebrows,  eye liner and lipstick - he was scandalised.  But I managed to pull rank and forced him.  I think he looked pretty good in the end.

Sean started recently being camera shy.

The kids went for a cooking class at Kampachi.  They had great fun making sushi, handling a real knife,  decorating futomaki etc.  It was a nice group and great to see that they were having loads of fun afterwards too.

Journal - Happy Birthday Harein

Harein and his beautiful cake.

Oh what a cake!

Beautiful settings - the garden outside Lafite.

Harein celebrated his birthday yesterday at the oh-so swanking Lafite,  Shangri-la Hotel.  I must say that both the venue and the party was so impressive!  Check out the photos.  Excuse my amateurish photos but we the kids had a ball at the party.

Journal - Wushu Exam

Kiddoes with their coach, ho Ro Bin - who is our previous Malaysian Junior Champion in Wushu.

Kiddoes practising their moves before the exams.

Sean was tested first - his moves were not executed according to his coach.

Clarissa is up next - she did better than Sean - phew!

The examiner - nope I couldn't see the marks.

Kids escaping and running off after the exam.

The kids went for their 2nd grade wushu exam yesterday.  I must say that they only did ok due to the lack of practise.  I am just hoping that they will pass.
