It’s Gonna Be A Rush

Just received a letter from Raimie’s school informing parents about Sports Day practice sessions and the date of 2011 Sports Day. He’ll come home late every Wednesday for his practice.

Raimie’s school 53rd Annual Sports Day (quite an old school, don’t you think?) is going to be held on Saturday, May 14th. And the event clashed with my brother’s wedding!

I had agreed to be my brother’s photographer that day too! My brother has to find someone else to do it. Sorry, bro!

What can we do? I can’t ask Raimie to forgo his Sports Day and Zaini is a PIBG (PTA) committee member so support the event we must. So it’ll be a rush traveling immediately to my hometown that Saturday after the Sports Day event. Raimie may just have to attend his uncle’s wedding in his t-shirt and tracksuit that day. o.O

Let’s hope there isn’t going to be any massive jam on the highway and we arrive on time.

This kinda reminds me of the time we need to be there for both my younger sister’s wedding and Zaini’s younger brother’s wedding, which was held on the same day. Luckily Zaini’s brother married someone from my hometown so we were able to attend both weddings, but the rush to make sure we were there for both families - we made it to both their nikah (solemnization of marriage), berinai and bersanding (kinda like the wedding reception) - I didn’t even change outfit the whole day! Of course my relatives commented about that. How dare I wear the same outfit the whole day for such a big do! LOL

  5. @SK,
    Not sure yet what he'll be in. Practice just started yesterday. If it's like last year, then it'll be 50m & 50m relay.

    Attending sports day in wedding outfit! That'll sure make the bride & bridegroom stand out. :P
