May is the champion

Last Tuesday morning, I took a half day off, and together with my husband, we went supporting May in the singing competition final round at her kiddy. Last year, I chose a tough song for her, and she couldn't overcome her terrible stage fright, at the end she was eliminated at the preliminary round. Later I found out from her teacher that she had cold sweat all over her body that day. 

This year, when I knew that she was chosen to go into the final competition, I was so happy. There were around 150 students in preliminary round, only 20 were chosen to go into final round. Out 20 students, prizes were given to top 3 winners and 5 consolations winners. Everyday, I let her practice singing through karaoke VCD with microphone at home. I just wanted to see my 6 years old walking up to the stage bravely and singing her song confidently. If she could bring back a prize, that was a  bonus.
I stood at the middle of the floor, watching her and recording her with Nokia phone.
Her Papa walked from corner to corner, taking many blurry pictures with Sony digital camera.
When the kiddy principal announced the winners, I just hoped that she could get a consolation prize as a motivation for her terrific improvement. To our utterly surprised, her name was announced as the champion. She got another trophy from the colouring contest that held months ago. The champion trophy now has to be put on top of a cabinet, as it couldn't be fitted into the cabinet which was allocated to store only their trophies. 

Here is the video of her singing the competition song on stage. I was so proud of her, as she has managed to conquer her stage fright. She sang the song so loud and clear. A big applause to my younger girl for winning the champion.

Just a side note, we have bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7 to reward my princesses for their achievement in school. I restrict them to use it only on weekends. On other days, the Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7 is mine.

  11. Well done, May, daddy and mommy! Ian too is very skeptical in participating. He got chosen last year for the English story- telling competition but he turned it down. :( Still doing my best to motivate him so that he will be brave enough to step on stage one day. Always tell him losing or winning is not important, it's the exposure and experience gained that really counts.
