Bling bling at SAL

Last Friday the school hall was all bling and colourful for the annual SAL International Day. For the past week, everyone was busy with either preparing the costumes, the deco or rehearsals for the day. And I thought it would be a nice idea for teachers to have their very own t-shirts to wear on that day too. So I took home the silk screen which we used for the children's Alphabet-T and embellished the front with the initials of the teachers using crystal rhinestones. It was time consuming, and I took approx. 30-35 mins to silk-screen each T but the result was satisfying.

Lyne on the other hand spent like what...5 or 6 hours? just to construct the word "SAL runway" on the wall with 1 cent coins. The rest of the teachers, Pei Ting, Mie Mie and Eileen were marvellous with the children's costumes. The rabbit's masks and fairies wings were just like those in a fairy tale. Overall the show went quite smoothly, with a few minor hiccups here and there and a few stunned children (who did so well during rehearsals but were just overwhelmed by the crowd). We had also a wide spread of international cuisine, all contributed by the parents. Just to name a few, we had Kalam Polo (Iran), Croque Monsieur (France), Pavalova (NZ) and of course my favourite Nasi Lemak and Roti Jala (Malaysia).

This coming week will be our last week for Term 2! Am really looking forward to spend my holidays in Brisbane with all my sisters! :D
