Hakim is the most serious of our 3 boys. He is always neat & likes everything clean. His hair is always combed into place (even at night in his pyjamas). His shirt is always buttoned up to the top (even at home). He finishes his homework on time every day (unlike Adlan). When he eats, he will clean up every single grain of rice on his plate. He is such a melancholy.
Hakim's highlight event of the year so far (where school is concerned) was when he was chosen to act in a drama sponsored by Digi for his school (this was before I started my blog). He was the narrator & he was fabulous! I saw him perform at Dewan Hang Tuah & was so proud of him!
Today Hakim's team from school took part in the choral speaking competition for primary schools in Malacca. This is the first time SK Ayer Keroh put together a choral speaking team & of course, they couldn't beat the schools with traditionally strong choral speaking teams like Convent. I went to see his team perform but I couldn't wait for the results.
When I picked him up from school at 4pm, Hakim was very quiet. I know he was really disappointed. I felt so sad for him as I could feel his pain. I hugged & kissed him & told him that he did so well in his solo part. I also told him that its ok that his team didn't win. What is important is that he experienced the whole event & he participated in team work.
When we reached home, Hakim reached into his school bag & gave me a present which he said he can't wait to give me for Mother's Day. It's a beautiful red rose. Adlina said that Hakim got it in school for RM1. To me, it is priceless.
He couldn't have given it to me at a better time. A beautiful rose from a gentleman.
Thank you, Hakim darling. Today, you are my hero.
