Concert & Graduation Ceremony 2007

Ukhwah itu bermula dari pandangan mata.
Terbit kasih di dasar hati, dan berakhir dengan
jalinan kasih mesra sepanjang hayat.

Sals@biila's "Malam Graduasi & Jalinan Kasih" took place on Sunday, November 4th, 2007 in Hotel Singgahsana, PJ. It was a dinner, concert and graduation ceremony combined.

To share the joy, we invited grandparents from both sides as our special guests. We had a table to ourselves since there were 8 of us altogether (including Sofea & Aidiin).

Like all previous events held by the school, the concert opened with bacaan doa, first by the invited Ustaz, then by a 6-year-old boy, one of Sofea's classmates. The Ustaz was there to also present a short but informative ceramah on parenting.

The first kiddy event was a cute performance by the toddlers (2-year-olds) singing the teddy bear song. They were simply adorable!! Most of the little teddies were cooperative on stage, but some were crying and had to be consoled by their mommies. Although it was only one song (about 10 minutes, I think), towards the end, some teddies had started yawning and rubbing their eyes. hee hee hee. Comel-ness.

Next, it was the performance by the 3-year-olds. Aidiin is part of this group. He and his friends sang "Bapaku Pulang" (My Daddy Comes Home), complete with the car-driving actions using cut-out steering wheels, made of cardboard. I had initially thought Aidiin would have stage-fright or become shy, refusing to sing when he'd seen us, but he surprised me by being totally the opposite. He performed really well (and sung pretty loud, too!) and seemed to really enjoy himself. Difficult to accept the fact that my 'lil prince is no longer a baby. *sniff*

The other performances were by the 4-year-olds, the 5-year-olds and the 6-year-olds.

Here is a video from one of the 6-year-olds' performances. This was taken from the Dikir Barat performance, which Sofea took part in. Apart from this, she sung in the Choral Speaking and was the yellow 'Musical Princess' Robot in the Robotic Show. She also played the kompang as one the background musicians in one of the singing performances.

Throughout the many performances by the 6-year-olds, I could see how much my daughter has grown over the years. I couldn't really see it when she's at home, what with her manja-manja, occasional mengada-mengada, sometimes lazy and over-dependent behaviors.

But on that night, when she was amongst her friends and teachers, her maturity, independency and leadership qualities were displayed. Guilty pulak rasanya, coz at home, her Ayah and I sometimes nagged her for not acting her age. l stilll worry about her going Primary One though. Susah betul jadi Ibu ni. *sigh*

As usual-lah, I was occupied with taking pictures (check out the Graduation & Concert album) that night, sampai tak sempat nak makan puas-puas, although it was a buffet dinner. I didn't even get to desserts!
