A Friday ritual.

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week.

A simple, special, extraordinary moment.

A moment I want to pause, savor and remember – {this moment}

Being the gym commissioner for Ah Lo’s team tournament, one of the responsibility is to find the scorekeeper for all the games. At 10:30pm the night before, I was still scrambling to find one. I volunteered Mr. Piggy, so he got busy learning how to be a scorekeeper via youtube that night. LOL.

When the time came, I just asked Dai Bee to take over the job since he’s familiar with the game rules. He sat down and poked at the machine. Next thing, he was there all day long and kept going for the next 8 games. Great he can earned the extra cash while enjoying the games.

Woke up early to make sure Dai Bee has a hearty and healthy breakfast. Made sure he had all the documents and materials he needs for his test this morning. Mr. Piggy drove him there with a little extra time, gave him a phone (turned off of course) and wished him luck on his SAT.

At 9:10am, I received a call from Dai Bee, from Mr. Piggy’s phone. Immediately I thought it was odd, he couldn’t have finished it that quick?! Dai Bee’s voice carried a heavy disappointment, even cracked a little when he told me he was kicked out of the testing center because Mr. Piggy’s [stupid] phone went off. He had no idea the phone’s functionality, nor did he expect that it would go off.

When he came back, [while trying to hide my anger over Mr. Piggy’s phone], I explained to Dai Bee it wasn’t his fault and he shouldn’t feel bad about it at all.  I do feel bad for him though, knowing how he is, I just hope this incident wouldn’t affect him taking tests in the future.

 

Dai Bee just joined track-n-field at his school. This is the only school sport he’s joined in the last 3 years, only because it doesn’t require try-outs and everyone makes it. Finally after weeks of assessment, he is competing in the 200m event this Friday. These shoes are loaner from the school.

Dai Bee is taking on a new role starting this month! He’s a piano teacher now, teaching at beginning level and charging minimum wage. His first two students are his cousins who come weekly. While teaching, he’s also learning at the same time. We’ll see how far this goes.

Busy night for us with activities back to back. Dai Bee has a winter concert, where he performs for the orchestra and choir. Both Ah Lo and Dai Bee have basketball practices happening the same night. Luckily the timing works out beautifully as Ah Lo has practice during Dai Bee’s performance. The great thing was the performance and practice are in the same location! How great is that?! After performance, Dai Bee changed (from a musician to a basketball player).

Dai Bee is also the concertmaster at his school’s orchestra. Because he’s part of the choir, he only played one song (the “Little Drummer Boy). Still, I thought he did great (but then, I might be biased.) This kid never ceases to amaze me.

Dai Bee’s SSAT scores came back. The good news is that he does’t need to retake it.

TOTAL: 2259 (Vocabulary-755, Math-761 and Reading-743)

Considering he skipped a grade and didn’t take any prep courses, these are pretty awesome scores. Now one more thing to cross off the list.
