Flying Colours

We had an interesting day last Saturday. We went out to Shah Alam, to my handsome Abang Epi's alma mater, to attend his convocation day. For the uninitiated, the universities in Malaysia usually hold an annual affair where graduating students put on robes, mortar boards and go on stage to receive their scrolls. In Abang Epi's case, it was his day to receive his degree in Physiotherapy. Usually, close members of the family will be there to celebrate with the graduate. OK, let the pictures speak for themselves.

A very formal shot.
A not so formal shot. The bloke is Abang Epi's good friend who was the recipient of the Vice Chancellor's medal.
Another not so formal shot.
I am free....he said. A very very informal shot.
Family picture at the hospital, before the ceremony. As you all know, my Mak Long just had her surgery the day before.
A formal shot of Abang Epi and Kakak Nurul.
A not so formal shot of Abang Epi and Madam Pawpawrazzi.
Another informal shot with my Pak Long.
Abang Epi just loves the camera, eh?
Oh boy! Even the truck is not spared.
OMC! What's this? Hmmm....Abang Epi's graduation album is unique indeed.
We went back to the hospital after the ceremony so Mak Long gets another photo op.
Who's my teddy bear????
That's him on stage! We're proud of you, Abang Epi.
Angelina's note: My handsome Abang Epi is still single and available. The university offered him a teaching post as well as a place in the Master's programme. He accepted both. So, girls, I'm still accepting applications for the position of Mrs Epi. purrr....meow!

My heartiest congratulations to Abang Epi. Nothing pleases Pakcik more than seeing that kind of success among the Malay youths. This is the dream I have for so many poor children at Almanar, but, sadly, very few make it there.

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Dear Pakcik,
My Abang Epi didn't do too well at secondary school but somehow he excelled at uni. May your Al-Manar kids follow his footsteps. purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Kitcaboodles,
Madam Pawpawrazzi thinks she looks slimmer in this dress. Duh? purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Hey Brad,
Madam Pawpawrazzi worked so hard to get the best shots. We want his graduation album to be different than others. purrr...meow!

~Covert_Operations'78~ said...

Heartiest Congratulations to Abang Epi! Goal and Touchdown, indeed!

Sandy said...

woohoo ! Congratulations ! Btw, that robe is gorgeous, usually graduation robe is super boring, decorated with just school color's stripe, but this one has intricate embroidery (or was it merely printed ? Nonetheless, still very cool). Madam Pawparazzi looks really awesome too, but where are the kittehs?

Cat-from-Sydney said...

CO78,
Aaahh...finally. Someone understands the concept. But Abang Epi has shifted the goal post now. He hopes to graduate with a Masters degree in 2013. purr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
The robe was designed by former students of the university's school of fashion design. It is embroidery of the uni's emblem. We like its slim/silhouette styling. purrr...meow!

CAT
kena bayar down payment kalau nak book your abg epi to be my menantu....or not?

ninotaziz said...

Hmmm, I'd never thought I'd say this...but I have a lovely daughter who would KILL me 9at least virtual-ly) if she knew I posted this comment.

ninotaziz said...

Congratulations, Abang Epi. Well done!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty CS,
Downpayment untuk queue je baru. Full payment baru dapat top of the queue. But no guarantees.... Abang Epi will surely kill me now!
Apalah Aunty ni, kita bukan nak jual Abang Epi. Yang penting, boleh menawan hati dia dan seisi keluarga. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Ninot,
The prospect of you berbesan with my Mama....hmmm......think carefully. har har har *evil laughs*

Caro CATachresis said...

Many congrats. Looks like it was a very happy day :)

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Caro,
He is very happy, after all the slogging over the years. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...
