One Word, Kumon

Fyi, that is a thinking face, not a sad face

To be exact, I've been in Kumon for 8 years, 10 months and a day since 3rd February 2002 until 4th December 2010. Why? That's cause I did my Kumon Completer Test yesterday and I managed to pass through it with a big, wide smile on my face, like this :D HEEEEEEEEE! The test was held in Millenium Tower, starting at 10.00am. I have to admit that I was pretty nervous on that day as it was sort of my final step in this Kumon programme. I couldn't really sleep well on the night before too because my mind was too busy worrying about the test. :O I know, silly me right? :P

Life as a Kumon student is not always easy. I have my great and rough moments throughout this whole programme. My great moments are the moment where my Mathematics school tests and examinations improved drastically ever since I joined Kumon. The moment where I manage to pass every single test from level A to level O. The moment where I was able to be 6 months ahead of my school level, 2 years and finally 3 years. The moment where I receive all my beautiful medals, trophies and certificates from my Kumon instructor. As for my rough moments, it would be those moment where I had trouble understanding the syllabus. The moment where I had trouble finding time to complete my daily worksheets. The moment where I got so stressed up and fed up with all the daily worksheets that are given to me. To tell you the truth, I even thought of giving this up for a few times, but I have to say that I'm really glad I didn't. :O

My first ever Kumon file

Honestly, all you need is patience, determination, hard work, passion and sacrifice all roll in to one in order to complete this programme. No shortcuts. If any of those is missing, I doubt it will be an easy process. It took me quite long to realize it, that's why it took me such a loooong time for me to complete this programme.

Here, I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have been there for me throughout this whole Kumon programme, especially;

My WHOLE family

They were the one who gave me the MOST love, moral support and as well as financial support for the pass 8 years, 10 months and a day without fail.

My Kumon Instructor, Madam Jennifer Yap

This picture is blur due to mummy's shaking hand. =/

She is the big lady boss who runs the Kumon Centre in Bandar Sri Damansara. She was the one who encouraged me, gave me advises and motivation to not give up and be strong about it.

My other Kumon teachers: Uncle Bala, Mr Tan and Cikgu Syaza

Cikgu Syaza

Uncle Bala who is coincidentally Nareen's dad was the one who help me through when I first started Kumon. As for Mr Tan, he was the one who guide me through when I was beyond my school level. Finally, Cikgu Syaza who was the cool teacher who never fail to make me understand and guide me through at my very last, final stage in Kumon.

My most adorable, chubby boy

This boy here is the one who was there for me whenever I get paranoid about my Kumon. He was the one who was willing to spend his time to comfort and listen to all my complains even though he is still sitting for his SPM.

My very best best friend

This superhuman here is the one who was willing to risk her life and waste her time by walking all the way to my house just to stare and teman me to do my Kumon revisions right after I texted her about me being so stressed up about it. Super betul, right? :O

Now, I shall say that;
(Dream come true! :D)
