Last Friday (March 25) was the HEDCEN's Recognition Day. Students were asked to wear their best elegant ethnic costume, an ordinary feature of a HEDCEN student...they wear this every Wednesday.
This year, we are doubly happy because my 2 girls are both recognized.

Mayumi's first time to march down with her ethnic attire
Mayumi, Recipient of Academic Excellence,
Special Academic Excellence and Holistic Award
It was indeed a very challenging year for this girl but the warrior spirit in her prevails....I am so happy
seeing TALA sparkling and smiling as she walks her way to receive her Holistic Award.
It is Hubby's first to don a medal for Tala. (He was not around last year)
My dearest Tala, a 2nd time Holistic Awardee
Proud Lola, Mayumi receiving her Holistic Award
It was indeed a precious moment for us......It was indeed a good feeling that we would want to happily share with everyone....but more than that this is more of a wish and prayer that these moments may continue and our kids will be a blessing to others...
To our dearest Tala and Mayumi, may you have a discerning spirit and that may you recognize not only what is special but what is ordinary --- be thoughtful, helpful, honest and respectful.
