Everyday Like a Princess #RuleLikeElena

Hello peeps,

It's almost reaching the end of 2016 and this year Alhamdullilah has been good to us. :) Farissa turns 9 this year and she was able to participate in a lot of activities in her school and achieve great results for her final examination. It is important to know that all of this achievements comes with a lot of hardwork, commitment and positivity on her part. ;)

Earlier on this year, Farissa, along with 14 other girls were selected to join the Action Song team in her school. We were very happy as she was so ecstatic to perform along with her school friends. She has always been the performer type. They work really hard for all the 3 competitions that they participated in. Practiced was held almost everyday at school and they also came during the weekend.

During this moments that is crucial for Farissa to play a leadership and team player role. A pleasant character was definitely needed to mingle and be a part of 15 girls! They were the champions for all 3 competition and even won the Champion for the Action Song Competition (Cluster School) National Level 2016.
National Level 2016! Congratulations Team!

Performing since kindergarden :) love~

Farissa loves just being there for her little brother. They are 5 years apart but their bond is super tight. I am not going to lie that there is not bickering between them (this is normal). However, she shows tremendous patience and thoughtfulness when it comes to her little brother. You see, Ruzain has always been terrified of water (yup event the swimming pool). So, each time we go out for a swim,  Farissa will always be supportive and thoughtful. She will hold Ruzain's hand and never let go until he is comfortable enough in the water.

I found this character in her very interesting, as a big sister she would sometime become annoyed by her little brother attachment but somehow always tolerates it when he needed her.

Spying on the children, Farissa is teaching Ruzain to write his name.. :)

Farissa loves animals. She truly does. I guess she get this passion for animals from her grandmom in Johor (Nenma adopted 30 cats under her care). She has always been fascinated with animals of any kind.

Interesting fact! Farissa grandmummy and granddaddy has a huge 100 acres oil palm in Sarikei Sarawak. She loves to follow her grandparents and work on the farm. Dirt and sun burn doesn't scare her (..yet). :) During the previous school holiday, her granddaddy caught a squirrel in one of the critter's cage. Farissa being an animal advocate, she shows real compassion towards the small critter. Mr. Bob told me later that before going back home, Farissa had find some fruits and nuts for her furry friend and begged her grandparents to let it go. Oh Farissa.

I love dirt and working hard!

Loves hitch-hiking on her grandparents truck

Contemplating to let the poor squirrel go.. while Sting the dog wait patiently on her decision.. haha!

Touching a sting ray.. Learning about water creatures..

Saving the best for last... Farissa's best trait of all is resilience. You can throw any kind of challenges towards her and she will conquer it. :) As most parents know, the academic achievement nowadays has becoming a battle ground for students and parents that wants their children to be the best. For me, the most important key of all is to find balance between school work and extra activity outside of the class room.

Since, Farissa loves swimming, I have enrolled her in a Swim Train program for her to practice and be prepared for future competition. Her trainer pushes her hard but she wants to be the absolute best so she takes all shouts and critics like a champion. She improves tremendously on her techniques and timing. We are very proud for her to do so. Hope that she will continue to improve and show her resilience towards her objectives (to become a National Swimmer).. who knows.. :D

Study for exams.. Ruzain also wants to join in the revision..

Well guys, before I end this special entry dedicated to my beautiful daughter Farissa, I would like to share with guys a new Princess recently premiered at Astro Disney Channel (CH 615). Disney's Elena of Avalor is a special strong willed and courageous princess. Princess Elena has to overcome many challenges and learn to become a good ruler. This is really tough as she is really young and still a teenager.

We believe in Princess Elena capabilities because she has all the right traits in becoming a good ruler. She is thoughtful, resilient, compassionate and shows leadership skills #RuleLikeElena. Such similarities between Farissa and Princess Elena that makes me believe that Farissa is a princess in a way too. :) What do you guys think?
