My darling daughter Aisyah attended her Kindergarten's graduation yesterday. Along with receiving a plaque to mark the end of her pre-school studies, she had also performed with her classmates several acts and songs, which I thought was beautifully done. It was a great day all in all.
I am so proud of her. She has gone through so much in the span of two years - from not knowing a single Malay word, much less Arabic and Du'as and Qira'ati, whilst she was in the UK, to adjusting to new environment with extreme heat in Malaysia, to making a whole new sets of friends who thought she talked funny (she spoke with an accent at first), to losing her Nek Mi (grandma), forcing her to attend school full day from 8 am- 6 pm, and many more. She can now read in BM well, read in English a little slower, talks fluently in Malay, and I discovered that she is very talented in the arts - drawing and dancing in particular. She has very good memory and managed to memorize half of the Muqaddam already, which impresses me to no end, because I now it is none of my doing.
Alhamdulillah... I am happy just to see that she is happy. I just can't believe how time flies (cliche as this may sound). But really, she'll be seven next year and off to Primary School. Wow... I just pray that she will find the same peace and happiness at her new school soon, and make good new friends and keep the ones that she has close too.
Congratulations, honeybun! You've done so well, so far. Keep it up!
