PMR Result - The Rainbow
Yesterday was another day that we have been waiting for anxiously. The release of the PMR results. This time it was not as bad as waiting for the UPSR results at the school. Dini just called MTS to find out what she gets. The day started as usual and before I left for work, I took her for breakfast, her favourite nasi lemak ayam goreng kampung untuk hilangkan darah gemuruh.
Everything went as usual until after 10am when I started to receive calls and 'sms'es from friends either informing me of their kids' results or asking about Dini's. It was only around 11am that Dini frantically trying to get me to break the news. I finally managed to talk to her when I called the house. She was overjoyed when her teacher called to inform that she got 9 straight As.
We later found out that 45 students in MTS obtained 9As and another 44 students with 8As from a total of close to 200 students. I thought that was a great achievement for students who not just studied the PMR subjects, but also learn another 10 religious subjects plus hafazan.
I salute the teachers and ustaz/ustazah who taught them. Good news from this part of the world don't always make it into the mainstream media....but then Maahad Tahfiz type of schools also did very well in Trengganu and Pahang.
Later in the evening, we all went to Nyang's house to celebrate her 90th birthday. It was a double celebrations when the Gombak clanners celebrated Nyang's birthday together with Dini's success in PMR. Thanks to Noni and Aunty Pit yang bertungkus lumus memasak for the occasion. It's been a while since the last gathering of Gombakclan. This year, we did not plan any trip to celebrate Nyang's birthday, just a little celebration at home. Selamat hari lahir yang ke-90 Tok/Nyang...semoga bertambah panjang umur dan hidup mendapat rahmat dan berkat.
We are grateful to Allah swt for granting this success to Dini and to all her teachers, ustaz and ustazah at MTS, Malkit and Durshan (Dini's tuition teachers), THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for your support, guidance and confidence that you all have in Dini. Our heartiest congratulations to Dini's friends at SKTS and MTS for their achievements. To those whom did not quite make it, there's always rooms for improvement. The journey is still very long and winding.
Special thanks to Tok Abah and Tok Mama yang bersusah payah menguruskan hal Dini di MTS, berulang alik ke Tanah Merah hampir setiap minggu dengan bekalan makanan yang tak pernah putus dan menghantar Dini ke airport. Berkat doa Tok Abah, Tok Mama, Tok Wan dan Tok yang berterusan, harapnya Dini akan terus berjaya.
To Dini, what can we say...thank you for giving us the "rainbow". We are so proud of you. We hope that you will continue to work hard and achieve your ambition in life. We love you Kakak.
