This is my 1st talent time ! I’m ecstatic! My mind is floating with so much to lèarn and practice. The day has finally arrived, 28th October, 2017.
During rehearsal the day before, i was very stress, so mom compromised with me that Ì don’t need to participate in costume competition. How relieved .
It was such a grant occasions, the yesterday empty hall has transformed into an multiple stars hall !
The hour has còme, Our 3 young handsome presenters, Bremen, Yung Han and Marcus introduced themselves to start the show.
The drummers playing a lively songs to catch the audience attention.
Then smoothly by our national anthem, Negara Ku. Everyone were to stand to respect the soñg. Some of our performers hold the Maĺaýsia flags.
Guest of honour, Dato Anthony Lim rendered his short speech. He congratulated Breakthru’s achievement on several areas , like the promotion of the Advance level of apprenticeships project, set up a society by parents of Breakthru called Parents and Community Empowerment Association. And aunty Phoebe’s coming up book.
A token of appreciation was presented to Dato for his opening speech by Aunty Lian Ai.

During the 1st scene, Eddison and Wai Chun drew under the sea pictures when the song were playing. Wow! They .can drew well.
The presenters gave a short introduction of Little Sun Kiddyland, before their cute tinny children performing Baby Shark dance. These children were so adorable in the theme costumes.

Next, it’s the 2nd awards giving to the ACE . A few of us were specially selected to hold the placards written the words ÀWARD TIME, to walk across the stage. And I’m one of them! I did it perfectly during rehearsal , when reached the mìddle stage, I paused to look with the placard facing the empty hall and then continued walking to the other end. But, today was different ! The hall was occupied with audiences, I’m lost because mom was not with me! I wanted to give my best but can’t. Am disappointed with myself but God knew me and that’s matter.

It was my turn to receive my award in this 3rd awards giving, I went on stage with mom. My award was Best Self Directed Learner Award! What an awesome award and encouragement ! I was awe by their appreciation and acknowledgement.
Aunty Phoebe gave speech but I’m still in my cloud mind with my award ! Haha…..
However, aunty Phoebe you are fabulous and a wondrous woman as in our Breakthru Superheroes video.

Everyone went home thereafter, joyfully awaken !
