Faaz Naqi's Sports Day


Brainy Bunch International Montessori (BBIM) has organized its Sports Day in mid March for two consecutive Saturdays (with two sessions each; morning and noon). BBIM Putra Heights (Faaz's school) together with 4 other branches have their Sports Day on the second Saturday; 22nd March 2014 (the morning session).


This year, the Sports Day was held at Dewan Sri Saujana, UNITEN, Bangi. Since my husband is currently on his oversea assignment, only me and the twins were available to give support for Faaz. My in-laws were away for a holiday and my mom was not well at that time. Since it started pretty early in the morning and it was scheduled to finish by noon, I brought along our helper. Just in case if the twinnies were restless, I had someone to look after them while I captured Faaz first sports moments for his daddy...




Falisya was so ready to cheer up for her big brother :)


After sending Faaz to her aunty, we went to register ourselves, got our goodie bag which included breakfast and colorful clapping hands for cheering up. We then went up to the 2nd floor where all the parents seated. We chose to sit at the middle of the hall.


The Sports Day started with the marching of the flagbearer and it was followed by the marching in of each of the BBIM branches according to their color and theme (this year's theme is "Under The Sea"). 


The three flag bearer marched in proudly


Of course for me, the moment that I've been waiting for was to see the BBIM Putra Heights team marched into the hall. Their theme is "Octopus", where one of the students, Adam Mikael (which is also my blogger friend - MommyNadia's eldest son) is being strolled on a special platform as he became the Octopus mascot. Sooo cute!!



It was not long ago before I spotted my son marched in politely into the hall. Tunduk siap! Hihi. Out of sudden I had this mixed feelings; thinking that it's another phase of my son's growing up life, and his daddy missed to see this live...


oh well, a typical "first time mommy" syndrome. Hehe :P





We tried our best to wave to Faaz from above but he did not see us. I saw him glancing all over the hall looking for me. Hihi, poor little darling...



The view of the hall as all 5 BBIM branches lined up in colors and theme. Very nice!



The highlight of the first round of this sports day was the performance by all students, dancing to the beat of "Under The Sea" song from the animated movie, The Little Mermaid. For weeks I knew Faaz has been practicing the steps and it was amazing to see how he put some efforts onto it although I know Faaz doesn't fancy dancing that much...


These photos sent by Faaz's class teacher, Uncle Bob few days before the Sports Day :)



and before the sports games started they announced the winner for best mascot. The winner went to BBIM Putra Heights! Yay!! I think they deserved to win (not bias ok!), their mascot was the most creative among all. Well done to the aunties and uncles of BBIM Putra Heights *Claps!* :)



The games started off with playschool group first. It was cute to see kids at the age of twinnies in action. So cute! Soon came the turn for regular and star classes. The host then announced that we, the parents were allowed to go down to witness our children in action closer. Alhamdulillah, we all went down and looked for Faaz.



Faaz and his friends, lining up before the matches begun..


Abam Faaz's cheerleaders. All wore pink that day in support for Faaz! Hihi



Abang was so happy that adik came to cheer for him...awww :)



In total, Faaz played 3 matches; The Ring Game, The Fishing Game and The Balancing Game. I managed to record Faaz in actions although I forgot to keep silent during the recording as I was too excited that I cheered for him erm...quite loud >.<  *shy*







In between the games, we did came to Faaz and I asked her sisters to give a can of milo to Faaz, in case he was thirsty. Faaz was happy that the twins brought him his favourite drink that he kindly willing to share the drinks with them. He also shared it with friends too! Awww,so proud of you son :)





Faaz posed before gave some of the drinks to his friends whom obviosly waiting to get a sip. Kesian, if only I bought more cans! Memang ada satu je tinggal...



Faaz in action, for his last match :)



Soon, came the moment that the kids look forward; the prize giving ceremony. As expected, Faaz so shy when Madam Ladyana gave him the medal. See lah his reaction...hahaha! Sabar je la :P



But it was totally different when I asked him to pose alone...



My proud boy with his first medal. Well done, son! :)


There were also matches for parents as the closure of this sports day. However, we made a move earlier because twinnies were restless. Before we went back home, I took some photos of Faaz as a memory of his first sports day :)


Faaz and his sisters... :)


Faaz and Uncle Bob! 
As usual, he was shy when he's around adults. :))

NICKELODEON'S 27th ANNUAL KIDS' CHOICE AWARDS

Nickelodeon Channel has never been a stranger to me. It was among my favourite Astro channel when I was a teenanger. I love watching the family-comedy shows but the show I've always looked forward each year was none other than the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards show.


For those who did not know, the Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards is a slime-tastic extravaganza where kids get to pay tribute to their favourites across the worlds of film, television, music and more. Apart from the signature green, gooey and slimy liquid, being a teen at that time of course I looked forward to see my favourite stars (singers and actors) being honoured and performed at the show...boyband especially. Haha!


Can't believe Nickelodeon is now in its 35th year globally and 16th year in Asia and my favourite award show has turned 27th this year. How time flew! Since I started my "official" Stay At Home Mom (SAHM) role last Monday, and coincidentally the 27th Annual Kids' Choice Awards (KCA) premiered on Astro 612 (Nickelodeon Channel) on that Monday evening, I decided to throw a simple pizza party and make a date to watch the show with my kids. I also invited my eldest niece to join us as well :)




Besides pizza, we have mushroom soups, garlic breads, BBQ chicken and carbonara pasta as our pizza party menu. Nyums!!





and being a sweetie, my niece Tasya also brought home made cuppies as desserts. The twins loved it! :)


The show started at 6pm Malaysia time, sharp. This year's award was hosted by the Hollywood hunk; Mr. Mark Wahlberg!


*sigh* :D


My niece was glued to the show while my son was serving himself some pizzas :D


Kicking off the KCA this year was internet sensation Todrick Hall with a pop performance medley featuring celeb cameos by Pharrell Williams, Austin Mahone and Cody Simpson, along with aerialists, cheerleaders and a step team. 






Celebrated magician David Blaine made his live awards show debut by facing his greatest challenge ever – slime – in an unforgettable moment that literally knocked his head off. Scary but cool! Faaz jaws were wide open when he saw the stunt! Haha!








Faaz was totally glued to David Blaine act while Tasya texted the results to her friends who can't watched it.



Among the award winners that received the orange blimps were Adam Sandler for Favorite Movie Actor; Jennifer Lawrence for Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Female Buttkicker; The Hunger Games: Catching Fire for Favorite Movie and Frozen for Favorite Animated Movie (Faaz and twinnies cheered happily as Frozen is their current favourite animated movie! :D).


Adam Sandler thanking his young voters :)


Faaz favourite hero, Robert Downey Jr. a.k.a Tony Stark (Ironman) won top honors for Favorite Male Buttkicker and Miranda Cosgrove took home the blimp for Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie for her role of Margo in Despicable Me 2. In the television categories, Favorite TV Actor to Ross Lynch and Favorite TV Actress to Ariana Grande. 






In music categories, orange blimps went to Selena Gomez for Favorite Female Singer; Justin Timberlake for Favorite Male Singer and One Direction nabbed Favorite Music Group and “Story of My Life” for Favorite Song.



Tasya and Faaz were glued to the TV the whole show :)




The highlight of the show was a special Lifetime Achievement Award presented to the Kids’ TV hitmaker Dan Schneider. The Award was presented to him by the stars of his mega-hit series iCarly (Nathan Kress, Noah Munck), Drake & Josh (Drake Bell, Josh Peck), Victorious (Victoria Justice, Avan Jogia, Daniella Monet, Leon Thomas III, Matt Bennett), Sam & Cat (Ariana Grande, Cameron Ocasio, Maree Cheatham, Zoran Korach), Kenan & Kel (Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell) and Zoey 101 (Chris Massey).




He never failed to make us laugh, on the Big Bang show or live show! Haha!



Of course, the KCA won't be complete without the gooey greeny slimy! Most of the presenters that night had the splash of those slimy thingy as surprises! Hihi :D






Wahlberg maintained throughout the show that he would be an unslimeable host, a challenge that was put to the test against worthy opponents like Williams, Kaley Cuoco and Jack Reynor -- all of whom got doused themselves in green goo. Ultimately, not even Optimus Prime could save Wahlberg from the massive drenching delivered by none other than Kevin Hart and the host’s own kids! Haha!




Gotcha!! :D




The star-studded telecast featured additional celebrity participants, including: Chris Rock, Jim Parsons, Jayma Mays, Kristen Bell, Chris Evans, Nicola Peltz, Shaun White, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, Queen Latifah, Michael Strahan, Carlos PenaVega, Zendaya, Debby Ryan, Andy Samberg, America Ferrera, Sophia Grace and Rosie from The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Will Arnett, Bella Thorne, Jake Short, Lea Michele, LL Cool J, James Maslow, Peta Murgatroyd, John Cena, The Bella Twins, Ross Lynch, Kendall Schmidt, cast members from The Haunted Hathaways, Instant Mom, The Thundermans, and many others.




For those who missed the show, fret not because you can still catch the re-run of the KCA via Nickelodeon Channel (Channel Astro 612) at the following time:
