Infrequent diary of a procrastinator

Ming’s Achievement

Written By: Tuen - Dec• 10•09

On Sunday, we attended St. Kevin’s presentation night. And for the first time since our kids started attending St. Kevin’s, we had something to look forward to at the presentation night. Ming had been awarded a certificate of academic excellence, which meant that he was amongst the top 10 percent of all students in his level. We had actually been hoping for him to be the dux of his class, but he was beaten to that by his classmate mainly, we think, because he did not do as well for physical education.

On the afternoon of the presentation day, Ming had to attend a rehearsal and I sent him down on my motorbike, which was the most convenient means of transport considering the timing and the location. After dropping him off, I even managed to contribute about $20 to Crown casino, which was nearby.

We’ve told Ming to aim for dux next year. Let’s hope he can improve his physical fitness and attain that!

Oh, this post is being composed on our flight to Bali. I shall submit this when I can get an internet connection.
