On 3 /5 / 09 I took part in a program at Sekolah Kebangsaan Padang Hiliran (SKPH).
The name of the program was A Moment With English – Enjoying English
The program started at 9:00 AM and ended at 11.20 AM.
I read an article from my blog entitled the Swine Flu.
My big sister Kaman gave a speech about “The Creation Of Universe”.
Kaman also did a book reading.
She read ‘Budu Spell’ from a book ‘Growing Up In Terengganu’ by Awang Goneng.
My big sister Kashah did a story telling about a girl named Jannah.
My big sister Kafah sang a song about butterfly.
We sang two songs.
First was the ‘Khalifah Song’ and the next song was ‘Guantanamera‘.
The ‘Khalifah Song’ is an English song.
‘Guantanamera’ is a patriotic Spanish song from Cuba.
After the program we ate fried noodle keropok lekor.
The keropok lekor was tasty but the noodle was too spicy.
I met a lot of kakak and abang in SKPH and a lot of teachers too for example the Head Master and Teacher Siti.
All of them were very nice and I enjoyed visiting the school.
I am very happy because Kak Syaza and Abang Kimi wrote comments in my blog 😉
I think there will be more programs in SKPH.
I love going to SKPH!
