My UPSR story
Today is the day the UPSR result is announced. So, let me share my story with u about my experience getting the result.
It was the nerve-breaking moment (ye la, 1st big exam la katakan). That morning, before assembly, I bumped into Cikgu Mazlan and he asked me what was my expectation. I said I was nervous, but with a grin.
There, there was a big crowd at the canteen of SeKeTuL (as I address my primary school), as that's where they display the results.
I was a bit late, bcoz I had to meet a teacher, if I'm not mistaken. So, I pushed the crowd (being the brutal me), and tried to look for my name...
Cikgu Ismail (he looks really like Anwar Ibrahim) who was also in the crowd said "Hah..Is******... awak dapat apa?"
There...my eyeballs followed his fingers, pointing at my name.
Is****** Ismail A A A A
Spontaneously, I jumped in joy. "Yay!"
And Cikgu Ismail semi-sarcastically said "Org cakap Alhamdulillah, dia 'yay! pulak"
Then I left the scene. Ahhh...Cikgu Mail is always like that. He always sorta try to find my faults, whether he's just kidding or what, this time, I don't bother.
And from that moment, I was smiling ear to ear, uttering tahmid again and again.
Know why? Being a student who is always on top of the list for the batch, I desperately must get straight A's. I just can't bear getting a B for any of the subjects.
Back home, as I reached the backyard (we always use the back door), I quietly told Tok the results. Then, Mak popped out and asked "Hah?! What do U get?"
With a sedih-dibuat-buat-face, I answered "3A, 1B"
and in no time, Mak started hen-pecking "Tu la, org suruh belajar..bla..bla..."
Bcoz I don't like hearing 'em, I admitted "I got 4As la..."
And the sheepish Mak went in saying "Hmm..gatal!"
Today, I am not surprised to get a text msg from Sue when Amira got straight A's (it's 5A's now). I knew it already! Kudos, dear Kakak!
I hope little Adam will follow her steps one day. Ok guys, I'm signing off... am going back to force Adam to read encyclopaedia tonite. Hahaha.
p/s: Congrats to Irsyad, too! We never thought he (Sham's nephew) would make it :P
