We went to Majlis Ihtifal & Khatam Al-Quran held by KAFA Al-Waani, sekolah agama which Kakak is attending. Alhamdulillah, syukur Ya Allah, she got 3rd place in her class. (For her sekolah kebangsaan, she got 4th. Prizes are given to 1st-3rd place only).
The event was held in Sekolah Agama Menengah, Jalan Hulu Langat. I thought the event would take up 2 1/2 hours the most but we ended up going back way after 5.00 pm. Blame it on the long speeches delivered. Me think, this is an Ihtifal then just have your speeches short and sweet. Just congratulate the students and give some moral encouragement. Me think, it was like attending some kind of briefing. They held lotsa persembahan as well. But those persembahan were wayyyy entertaining than those long speeches.
When she went up the stage, I felt a lump in my throat. This is the girl whom her teacher bluntly told me 'dia slow' way back in 2008. So mommies, never lose hope on your child. Never lose faith. As Maher Zain renders 'InsyaAllah, InsyaAllah. InsyaAllah we'll find the way'.
