"Am I 6 today?": Medina's Birthday's list.


Being the youngest in her class, Medina got many 6th birthday party invitations from her classmates since last year. So, she wants to have her own birthday party and invite her friends to her "party club". Unfortunately, her birthday is still 3 months away.
Starting few weeks ago, she keeps on asking us the same question almost every day: " Am I 6 years old, now?"? She wishes that she is 6.
And she starts to make a list. And the list is getting longer and longer.

Inek Berkunjung Ke Inggris Lagi!

Akhirnya,  setelah 4 tahun tak menginjakkan kakinya di Inggris,  datang mengunjugi Medina di Bristol. Dari 24 Januari hingga 12 Februari. Kali ini Akek absen dulu, dan Inek ditemani Tante Henny.  


Maka kami pun jalan-jalan. Tiga tempat utama tujuan kami adalah Bath (yang cuma sejam dari Bristol),  Cardiff (Ibukota Wales, sekitar 1,5  jam), dan tentu saja London yang sekitar 2,5 jam-an.

Di Bristol, kami pun mengeksplorasi khususnya daerah pusat kota (Harborside, Cathedral) dan tentu saja pusat belanja.
Bath adalah kota kecil yang isinya berkaitan dengan pernak pernik permandian. Di sini kami mencoba Fudge yang terkenal.
Cardiff adalah ibukota Wales yang bahasanya didominasi oleh konsonan. Selain Kastil, Bay-nya punya pemandangan yang indah, termasuk Doctor Who Experience.
London, tentu saja adalah daya tarik utama. Kami mengunjungi Big Ben dan sekitarnya (London Eye), juga ke daerah London Bridge dan Tower Bridge. Dan terakhir, ke Harrods yang gemerlapan.

Selain jalan-jalan, teman-teman kami di Bristol sangat baik hati mengundang makan dan mengajak jalan, di antaranya ke Swindon, Suspension Bridge, dan  Gloucester. Terima kasih banyak buat Mbak Willy, Mbak Nuning, Dewi Showering, dan Mbak Ina.

Medina's favorite stories:

Three little pigs:


Julia Donaldson's Room on the Broom

Other stories: Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo, Billy Goats Gruff, Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Of course Medina loves to recite short surah of Quran, daily prayers, and sleepover in Masjid, particularly during KIBAR event in April (Manchester)  and October (Southampton). And, of course in Pengajian Al Hijrah Bristol, our own congregational home.






Last but not least, Medina is not a mainstream girl. Her favorite character of three little pigs is the second pig, not the third one. Her favorite Trolls character is DJ Suki, not Poppy.
And she is now into home-Karaoke! :) 

So long 2016. Welcome 2017!

Brilliant appreciation: the 3rd Award this year!

Written by: Ibu Rossy

"Medina is an excellent learner because she is unstoppable like LBOT and is trying really hard with her writing". (the certificate, signed by B Pritchard, her teacher, 29/11/2016)


Alhamdulillah, Praise to Allah, Medina has won (another) award from school. This time is an appreciation for her effort in writing. So proud of my little angel, and appreciate what the school has done. This is really a brilliant idea to embrace the every progress of the learning process.

Every year, the school gives award to pupils (two pupils of each class) who
have put a lot of effort to achieve improvement. Some have improved in
writing, others in Math, andthere are also who spread positive environment
such as reading, embracing every challenge, etc; all the achievement that
cannot be represented by numbers/figures.
By appreciating the uniqueness of every child and their effort to improve in
every field they are struggling, surely it will boost their confidence and
motivation to achieve more.
Medina, I believe that this leap frog will bring you to another giant step in
the years ahead.
“ The place where we grew up influences the way of our thoughts, feelings
and action...” (From executive book summary of Hofstede, 2005).
