爸爸 was on business trip and was awoken with a call from 姐姐's school on Monday. He was still snoozing as it's still early where he was :) When he called me, he said the school teacher called because 姐姐 seems to have won some drawing competition. Initially he told me it's the one where he bring her to school. Then later after talking for a while we realize it must be the Malaysian-Japanese Students one. He said she'd be receiving a memo from school and that we're to bring her for the rehearsal and actual prize giving ceremony. We're so surprised, and just waited for the memo since we didn't know if she is eligible for a cert, or really got a prize.
Even when she brought back the memo, it just said she is on the winner list but no details. Luckily 爸爸 is back and he can bring her to the rehearsal, as it's at Seberang Jaya Library.

They were early for the prize-giving ceremony (Majlis Perasmian dan Upacara Penyampaian Hadiah), and lucky too as finding parking would be difficult with more people attending. Her school principal also attended this ceremony. 姐姐 sit separately from 爸爸. Luckily 爸爸 get to go so that he could take her photos. There's also dance performances but 爸爸 didn't take photos. TYT Tun graced the Majlis Perasmian Pameran Seni Lukis Pelajar-Pelajar Malaysia-Jepun.

She's very happy and honoured to be getting a prize in the competition. She got Sijil Cemerlang and plaque from Jabatan Pelajaran Pulau Pinang. As part of the Special Prize, she got a bagful of goodies sponsored by Consul General of Japan in Penang. There's a beautiful scroll which she asked not to open. Her school will be conducting its own prize-giving ceremony for other students who got the certs from this "Programme Friendly Relationship Through Pictures".
The Malaysian-Japanese Students' Art Exhibition will be shown in George Town branch library at Jalan Scotland from 11 to 15 July 2012.
