APSS 2016 Best Sportman

I was wrong when i said 2015 was Adam's athletic year here

2015 was just a beginning. 2016 is his glory year, his athletic self showing up full force. After his shocking debut in MSSD Track & Field, his effort at MSSS Aquatic MSSD Football and brilliant performance during APSS Annual Athletic Meet, no one was surprised when he was crowned The Best Sportman. My only surprise was when he managed to get gold for long jump as well, which he never shown any interest at previously. But then, for someone with that set of long legs, long jump is probably piece of cake.

With 2016 Best Sportgirl - Trisya, whom is also our neighbour. Must be something in BJ water supply, that turns these kids into good looking sprinters :)

Congrats kiddos. You both were spectacular.

The Yellow Falcon!

I hope that Adam will continue running and swimming for his school for the next 5 years, and have fun while doing it. It was not easy for him, with numerous bone conditions to deal with, training schedule that clashes with classes and academic expectation to achieve but he did it anyway. Know that ayah and mummy will always be with you, Adam.

This is the gentlest of my Siddiqs. No speeding around on his bicycle, jumping into drains or climbing up the walls. Very prim and proper. Never came home looking like something the cat dragged in, which were the norms for his brothers.

But that is not to say that he escaped without his fair share of bruises and scrapes. He was pretty brave about it too. Not crying until he was safely back inside hotel room. Seen here with the latest knee injury after mini ATV accident. In which he hit Adam's ATV, not the other way round. He escaped unscatched during first tumble after speeding around a sharp corner but not so lucky the second time :)

Ah well...the joy of being 6.

2015 is Adam's athletic year

After his debut at MSSS Aquatic earlier this year, Adam surprised us with his other hidden talents at APSS sport day track events. And i have to admit, he is pretty good. With a bit more training plus mummy a little more strict about junk food, he can be next year school runner.

2nd place for 4x200m

Mummy, Aqil and Ayah pun yellow house juga

First place 200m

First place 100m

Second place 4x200m

He was seriously happy basking in the aftermath of it, even though yellow house ended up with 3rd place. We even let him skip his swimming assessment that night so that he could spend more time enjoying his time of glory.

Win or no, i was really impressed yellow house drum performance. Ustaz Admad is really talented. That was Adam - on Ustaz's right hand side. Good to know that all those drumming lessons at school were not wasted :)

2015 MSSS Aquatic

Adam's first try. Never thought he would qualify but he did. Good exposure for him. He will be better prepared next year.

His team mates

With their big tshirts muahahahaha!

The swim suit that disqualified him :)

Eid 2012

The raya itself was great. We went back to Kedah first.

But something worth celebrating happened on the first night at kampung - adam refused his nightly susu. And refused again the next night, and the next and the next. All through our one week raya holiday at kedah and terengganu.


Could this be the end of it? I really hope so. After 8+ years, i had almost given up trying to wean him off his milk bottle and resigning to the fact that he may want to bring his botol susu to his marriage bed (wonder how his future wife is going to handle that, but now i'll never know)

Lets hope the bottle is gone for good.
