Kidz Cabin Sports Day 2015: Memorable opening

*WARNING: If you are an English teacher, or you speak English with a lot of dust (cakap English berhabuk), excuse me for the errors in my writing. Oh! My English!

Part 1

24 May 2015 - The Minister of Youth and Sports, YB Khairy Jamaluddin, has expressed many times in the medias about his concerns about the direction of the sports industry in our country. Thus, Sabriena's kindergarten, Kidz Cabin, at Ukay  Heights has taken necessary moves to respond to these needs of producing more worlds class athletes in our country. Sounds big, doesn't it? Yes! Kidz Cabin always produces big stuffs.

Happy to see the banner which was hand painted by me many-many years ago still being used. Thank you teachers!
My niece, Zila who is also one of the teachers in Kidz Cabin with her family.
Attending Fateh.
Kidz Cabin Sports Day was held at Selangor Sikh Union Kelab Aman, Jalan Aman. This year I wasn't one of the committee members. My wife was hospitalised at that time, and I have been very-very busy with work, and many other things. Let the younger and more energetic parents lead the team. After all, sports and youth seemed to be more relevant.

One of my old buddies, Azlan. Got to know him because our sons were in Kidz Cabin many years ago.
Teacher Fatimah preparing some drinks.
I wasn't that enthusiast like the previous years. I came in late that morning. Only Sabriena and I. Just the two of us. My wife wasn't feeling that well. Amier on the other hand was still in bed. I took my camera along to take pictures of the historical event. I had to park quite some distant away from the club. From the location where I parked my car, I had to take three buses and a commuter, and a taxi before I reached the destination. Phew! What a journey. When we arrived, the sports hall was already packed with children, parents and teachers. They were all so vibrant, colourful, happy and cheerful. Not like me and Sabriena. I handed over Sabriena to one of the teachers. And I took my camera from the bag to capture interesting moments I might be witnessing. 

The taekwondo masters will do their stuff in a short while.
Lots of food on the tables. Made me feel very hungry. I could even eat the tables.
Roy said he wants to eat Ngan Yin peanut. That was what the 'good' sign meant.
Teacher Ira messaging Bukit Aman. "Need some traffic policemen to control the children".
Parents showing happy faces.
Waiting for the show to begin.
"You must be the one everybody was talking about!'
They were not gossiping, just complaining about the GST.
Support to the green belted daughter.
More guests at the sports day.
Couldn't wait for the children to march in.
Hakim was telling some stories about his childhood experiences.
Put your heads in the holes, and you'll become a rock star.
The nicely decorated stage.
A father and a son.
Final motivational talk before the game began.
Since I didn't bring my wife with me, I felt a bit like "off line monkey". Kah kah kah! What I meant was feeling out of place, or  like the Malay saying - "kera sumbang". I only knew few people, namely Azlan, Hakim dan Roy. And well, some other parents too, whom I did not know their names. Luckily, I got my camera as my companion. "How are you Mr Camera?" "Fine, thank you". "Let's go click some pictures!" And so we went wandering the sports hall and acted like professional photographers.

To be continued...

"I want to answer the question!"
Everyone was quite nervous.
Teacher Datin Zarida expressed her concerns about the local badminton future after Datuk Lee Chong Wei era. Teacher Yaya (also my niece) pondered with agreement.
A proud parent.
Aida was also there.
Emcees for the day.
Teacher Yaya and Saleh - my niece and nephew.

Sukaneka SK Ampang 2015: Kelahiran juara-juara

Bahagian 2 (Akhir)

Setelah wisel permulaan ditiup, para peserta kelas Tahun 3 pun memulakan larian. Amier terlibat dengan larian secara berkumpulan ini. Peserta kena pakai topi keselamatan kontraktor. Kena tolak tayar motorsikal sejauh 100 meter. Lepas tu kena bawak bola ping-pong dalam sudu sejauh 3 kilometer. Patah balik. Tolak tayar motorsikal sekali lagi dan pass ke peserta selanjutnya. Nampak macam mudah kan? Tapi yang terjadi sangatlah melucukan.

Para peserta menolak tayar motorsikal.
Lepas tu kena bawak bola ping-pong dalam sudu pulak.
Tak semudah yang dijangkakan.
Pakai topi keselamatan tu aje dah menyukarkan pergerakan.
Bola ping-pong ni sering terpelanting keluar dari gelung.
Nak bawak bola ping-pong kena berhati-hati. Perlu patuhi had laju.
Mengambil bola yang ada di dalam sudu.
Giliran Amier menggolekkan tayar motorsikal.
Membawa motorsikal berhati-hati. Keselamatan perlu diutamakan.
So far so good. Amier bawak motor sangat cermat.
Amier semakin menghampiri check point.
Bagaikan seorang pelumba Motor GP profesional.
Amier perlu bawak bola ping-pong dalam sudu pulak.
Memastikan bola terletak kemas di dalam sudu plastik.
Perkara nombor satu yang paling menyusahkan peserta ialah topi keselamatan tu. Kepala murid-murid kecil. Topi tu besar. Bila pakai topi, pandangan bagai terhalang pasal topi tu terlalu besar sampai menutup mata. Dan sering kali topi terjatuh apabila murid berlari. Kena kutip lagi. Pakai balik topi tu. Dan jatuh lagi. Amier, dalam sukaneka kali ni nampaknya lebih steady dari tahun sudah. Pergerakannya berhati-hati. Tetapi taklah terlalu perlahan. Masa yang dicatat Amier kira baik jugaklah. Dalam perlumbaan itu, team kelas Amier jatuh nombor 2. Tahniah!

Membawa bola ping-pong dengan sangat cermat.
Semakin hampir ke check point.
Dan semakin hampir.
Di check point, Amier kena bawak tayar motor sekali lagi.
Acara sukaneka telah pun selesai.
Peralatan sedang dikemas oleh murid-murid kelas atas.
Setelah semua acara sukaneka berakhir, murid-murid diarahkan untuk berkumpul di dalam dewan sekolah. Hadiah disampaikan kepada kesemua peserta, dari Tahun 1 sampailah ke Tahun 3. Yang dapat nombor tercorot pun dapat hadiah pingat gangsa. Nombor dua dapat pingat perak. Dan juara mendapat pingat emas. Oleh kerana kelas Amier dapat nombor dua, mereka dapatlah pingat perak. Aku ucapkan tahniah kepada Amier. Tapi Amier macam tak puas hati pasal tak dapat pingat emas.

Lepas hadiah telah dibahagikan kepada murid-murid, para pelajar dibenarkan balik ke rumah dengan ibubapa masing-masing. Aku bawak Amier pulang ke rumah sebelum mengajaknya keluar menemani aku untuk ke pejabat imigresen di Putrajaya, dan ambil Wanie di sekolah asrama di Kajang. Hari tu memang merupakan hari yang memenatkan. Terutamanya bagi Amier.


Murid-murid berkumpul di dewan untuk menerima hadiah yang berupa pingat.
Cikgu mengagih-agihkan pingat kepada pemenang.
Kelas 3 Utarid. Naib juara sukaneka bagi kategori Tahun 3.
Murid-murid teruja dengan kemenangan ini.
