Be Optimus Day..

Today's ACSJ Teacher's Day celebration and in conjunction with that, the school is celebrating 'Be Yourself Day' which is actually one of The New Paper's branding event. On BYD, the students are able to come dressed in any costumes that best express their personalities..it is also a charity event as students are also encouraged to make a donation to help TNP raise funds for the President's Charity.

Anyway...the theme of BYD in ACSJ was 'Heroes'. I was having a hard time trying to explain to Aidan the attributes of a hero. He keeps associating heroes with 'superheroes' & superpowers. So, I tried using examples like firemen who risked their lives saving people & their homes or policemen who help to keep law & order by catching thieves. But the boy rebutted that they were merely doing their job so why should they be considered heroes then. Alamak..how to answer ah?? I should tell him that all mothers should be considered heroes especially if their kids are as smart-alec as the one I have..

In the end, Aidan as you can see from the picture above, decided to go as Optimus Prime, who in his opinion, was the ultimate hero..Saving earth from the evil Megatron & the Decepticons and sacrificing his life to save Sam Witwicky. Oh well, who am I to argue with the boy...I blame the media & Hollywood :P

To all teachers out there, have a "Happy Teacher's Day!". Definitely not an easy job which requires tons of patience and understanding (especially if you got a kid like Aidan in your class..). I salute u guys!

My boys school BYD is on 30 Sep. P5 theme is Cosplay so Tim is going to be Naruto. P2 theme is Animation movie and Royce has a hard time deciding who he wants to be...for now it is Master Wu Gui in Kungfu Panda! I've got to make a turtle shell for him!
Aug. 31st, 2009 05:58 am (UTC)
heh i don't have your ability of diy-ing costumes and im always amazed at how you can create them using the most simplest of materials. :)
Sep. 1st, 2009 03:33 am (UTC)
This time Tim's Naruto is not DIY cos we actually bought a costume for him when I was in KL 2 weekends ago. We can't find the right size for him in Singapore but was surprised to be able to get one from KL. Royce's Master Wu Gui will have to be DIY though...
Aug. 31st, 2009 08:24 am (UTC)

Aug. 31st, 2009 08:37 am (UTC)

Hey Angelia!

Aidan looks cute in his Optimus outfit! :D And a really handsome hero as well. :) Love reading your posts! Oh, congrats on your new apartment too!

Sep. 7th, 2009 05:42 pm (UTC)
I should tell him that all mothers should be considered heroes especially if their kids are as smart-alec as the one I have..

You can tell him that it's the job of firemen to fight fires, not to risk their lives or sometimes even die saving people from fires, and that makes them heroes.  Or tell him in Heroes all of them are normal people what.

Most importantly, a hero is someone you want to be like or emulate; you can't emulate being a massive transforming robot lor. :P

Next time got this hero day I help you convince him to go as a normal person.  And if I succeed I can lend him one of my spare uniforms, haha! :D

Healing from HIV-AIDS, i never taught dr.vudoo who could ever get my HIV-AIDS cured with his healing spell, i have tried almost everything but i could'nt find any solution on my disease, despite all these happening to me, i always spend alot to buy a HIV drugs from hospital and taking some several medications but no relieve, until one day i was just browsing on the internet when i come across a great post of !Michelle! who truly said that she was been diagnose with HIV and was healed that very week through the help of these great powerful healing spell doctor, sometime i really wonder why people called him Papa vudoo, i never knew it was alll because of the great and perfect work that he has been doing that is causing all this. so i quickly contacted him, and he ask me some few questions and he said a thing i will never forget that anyone who contacted him is ! always getting his or her healing in just 6 hours after doing all he ask you, so i was amazed all the time i heard that from him, so i did all things only to see that at the very day which he said i will be healed, all the strength that has left me before rush back and i becomes very strong and healthy, this disease almost kills my life all because of me, so i will to hospital to give the final test to the disease and the doctor said i am HIV negative, i am very amazed and happy about the healing dr.vudoo gave to me from the ancient part of Africa, you can email him now for your own healing too at: vudoospellsolution@hotmail.com
