Music Book

The first page,
First song I'm going to learn,
For my primary school music class...
Is exactly the same,
As what mummy learnt,
In her primary one music book's first page.......

I sang in the school,
And sing together with my mummy,
In the home, too!~

Brings back a lot of sweet memory,
Of mummy's Primary School's life!~

'Drum' Set

I like to play drum a lot....
I take whatever I can find,
In my toy box...
Plus our recycled box...
And start making my own drum set...

I enjoy hitting my little 'drum',
With rhythmic beat!~

Till then...
I need to 'practice' more,
With my new drum set!~

Thistle PD Kids In Charge! Winner

After 4 board meetings,
With its first ever advisory board 
Comprising 10 kids aged7 – 12 years old
Thistle Port Dickson concluded its Kids in Charge! 
Initiative with a ceremony 
To pay tribute to the Board members...

Adam Mrani, 12 years old, 
The Grand Prize winner! 

Adam won a 6 day/5 night stay 
At Thistle London for a family of four, With return air tickets to London, 
Courtesy of SriLankan Airlines. 

He received his mock ticket 
From Mr Chinthaka Weerasinghe, 
Country Manager Malaysia, 
SriLankan Airlines 
And Mr John Murphy, 
General Manager of Thistle Port Dickson Resort.

“It was an awesome experience, 
In terms of what I learned 
And also the many friends I’ve made 
During the four Board Meetings,” 
Said Adam who is a student 
At S.K. Seri Mega in Kuala Lumpur. 
“I’m glad I was able to actively contribute 
And be a good team player 
During the various projects 
We had to undertake as Board Members. 
What I’ve learned will stand me in good stead 
For years to come.”

Adam’s proud mother, 
Vanitha Samuel, 
Was equally thrilled 
To see her son 
Declared the grand prize winner. 

“It was a truly amazing learning curve 
For Adam,
And the whole experience wasn’t so much a contest,
But involved a whole lot of mentoring and encouragement 
From the Thistle team and facilitator 
Who brought out each kid’s potential. 
In fact I can see the change in Adam, 
Who’s become more confident 
And more of a leader in many ways. 
And the rest of the parents have been so supportive 
And become very good friends as well,” 
said Vanitha.

Each Board member was tasked 
With coming up with ideas 
To transform Thistle PD 
Into Malaysia’s best hotel for kids, 
A place where kids can truly enjoy themselves. 

The ideas ranged across 
All aspects of the hotel’s operations, 
Including its F&B offerings, 
Accommodation, services, 
Amenities and activities.

Besides convening at the meetings, 
The Board members also conducted their own research, 
Interviewed staff of the hotel 
And conducted feasibility surveys 
To ensure the ideas presented 
Were practical, workable and cost effective.

Board members were judged by a panel of 5 judges, 
Who adjudicated the members 
Based on originality and creativity of ideas, 
As well as their overall performance 
Over the 4 Board meetings.

“We were indeed astounded by 
The wit, charm and creativity of these kids 
Over the 4 Board Meetings. 
Their brilliant ideas 
Truly reflect their high level of commitment. 
They have proven that 
Children are full of possibilities and surprises 
And they deserve to be given a chance 
To show the world what they are truly capable of. 
Kids today are more astute than ever before, 
And in our efforts to continually improve our services, 
We held this initiative 
To make Thistle Port Dickson Resort 
A true haven for kids, 
And the kids have been successful in this,” 
said John Murphy.

Each Board member was also rewarded 
With complimentary passes to Legoland Malaysia 
And a certificate of appreciation!

The idyllic Thistle Port Dickson Resort, 
Located just 80km from Kuala Lumpur 
Is set in 36 hectares of tropical landscaped gardens, 
Along a 3-kilometre stretch of a private sandy beach 
In Teluk Kemang, 
One of the most popular beaches in Port Dickson.  
Already recognized by a host of awards and accolades, 
Including the 2012 Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor, 
Thistle Port Dickson Resort boasts 251 luxuriously furnished rooms 
With views of either the Straits of Malacca 
Or the resort’s very own golf course. 
All room bookings at the resort 
Include complimentary unlimited wi-fi, watersports, 
Golf, tennis and many other activities.

Schooling Progress

Mummy's pretty worry about me,
During the first 2 days of schooling...
I kind of reassure her that,
I can handle my new environment and schooling pretty well by now.....

This new year,
I starting a habit of,
Expressing and summarize my feelings,
In my dear diary.....

I recorded down whatever happens in my life...
Mummy's relief to see my sad faces during school days last week,
Transformed into happy faces now...
Just because my class teacher said,
I performed very well on Monday......
I know it's a really small motivation,
But her words really inspired me to like schooling more...
Thank you, teacher!~

Mummy caters food in school canteen....
She thought just try out and see if I'll eat......
She's kind of surprise that I finished up all the food,
Despite that I'm always a picky eater,
I never ate any food that's prepared in kindy...
It's a really good progress for me, too!

The most important part is,
I see my mummy rush here rush there,
Adjusting her time to fetch me,
And woke up extra early,
To prepared my breakfast and lunch,
Before going to work...
The little part I can do is finish up the school food,
So that she don't need to spend extra effort,
To prepare recess time's food for me...

Yesterday during recess time,
When I reached canteen,
A kid's eating my food....
I didn't panicked at all...
I told the canteen's aunty,
And she prepared another set of meal for me.....
And I still finish my meal before the bell rings!~
I heard teacher told the kid to bring money to buy his own food tomorrow...
Mummy's pretty impressed that,
I handled the situation pretty well...........

Don't worry, mum.....
School is fun and I love schooling....
Teachers are very good,
And I have new friends here,
Which I still don't know their names yet...

I'm 7 years old this year
And I can learn to be independent in school!~

Chinese Calligraphy

As Chinese New Year is approaching soon...
We're all in CNY mood now........
Looking at our new clothes,
But can't wear it now......
Making me looking forward for CNY more....

We're not going to do any craft with angpow for the time being,
But we're going to start a really interesting activity with mummy:
Trying out Chinese Calligraphy for the first time!!!~~~~

My first impression is,
The black ink is kind of smelly!~
It's kind of tough to hold and write in the proper way...
But it's definitely a great start for us!~

Me and mei mei decided,
To transform our Chinese Calligraphy class,
Into Ink chopping time...
We paint our hands black...
And chop it on the newspaper.............

There's black ink all over our body!~
But it's definitely fun to get dirty sometimes....
Although the cleaning job is quite hectic...

Very fun Sunday Morning!~
