My Graduation


Hello guys! Yesterday was an exciting day not only for myself but as well as for my friends, our families and the other graduands. It was a fantastic day aside from the fact that rained, however, that didn't stop us from enjoying the day.

It started at 11.00 am but we had to be there by 9.30 to register, collect our gowns, take photos and find out seats. Sam looked gorgeous in his shirt and tie so did my ever suppostive, ever loving... ever caring boyfriend :).

It was indeed a celebration of the success that we have achieved during the past 3 tedious years of our lives.

It was a great ceremony!!! Before the ceremony started (started promptly at 11.00 as scheduled), the camera was scanned through the people within the hall and the pictures were projected on a couple of widescreens on the stage... when all of sudden I've heard resounding 'awwww....!' from people so when I looked at the screens they were showing my son on focus... My friends and family recognized him in fact Rachael said to me on our way out of the hall... 'trust Grace's son on the screen'. By the way, the ceremony was broadcasted live on the university website. Apparently, the family of international students are able to watch the ceremony live.

Anyway, I have here uploaded 'a few' photos we've taken yesterday. I hope you enjoy browsing through them. I couldn't decide which ones to post so I do apologise if once again... I've posted loads :) Oh, I've still got a couple to come through taken by the official photographers for the occasion :)

Watch your posture Sammy!

They were just putting this on before social services starts knocking on my door ;)

The University chancellor et al

Waiting for my name to be called :)

We've been together in the past 3 years and we'll miss seeing each other almost everyday but hey, we agreed to meet and catch up every now and then whenever the opportunity arises ;)

Me and my bad posture :(... I wasn't ready for it!.... YAY!!! My roots needs sorting out :O

Rachael: Grace, you're such a little poser!

I don't know what that was

We've been told we were not allowed to throw the mortar boards up on the air. Boring!

Taxi!!! (There's always one, I know) Rachael thought it was hilarious! Look at her! Tart!

Rachael and Mandy amongst the crowd

Sam will be doing this as well one day :)

A doctor in the making ;)

What about you? What was your graduation day like? C'mon, I know you want to share it as well ;)
