UPM - My Playground

Pic taken from :

Today (July 15) is a very special day for my mom. This morning, I accompanied her to Majlis Gemilang Putra, a 5 in 1 event in which awards are given to selected UPM staffs (all categories of officers) for their excellent performance in doing their jobs. My mom was awarded with Anugerah Perkhidmatan Cemerlang. As a starter for the event, they made us sing Putra Gemilang, UPM song. It was not the song that made me recalled my childhood days, but it was the slide show. The slide show showed the random photos of Universiti Putra Malaysia. So, what's the relation ? Random photos of UPM and my childhood ? Closely related. Very close until I can say that I know UPM very well. Say it : location of the faculties, library (my favorite!), swimming pool (my favorite!) etc. 

My house is situated a stone's throw away from the campus. Basically, I grew up in the environment of a university. I always follow my mom to her workplaces. Besides that, I went to Makmal Taman Prasekolah (a preschool in UPM). The teachers are all educated. Some of them even has Ph.D in their divisions. Most of them have Master in social science field e.g human development. Since the kindergarten is open for all university staffs and students, I also had friends who're not Malaysians. One thing that I like the most in there is the swimming pool ! Yea, that kindergarten has a swimming pool. Below are some of the photos that I found in my photo albums :
