Allan G Dumbong
Obelle, 10, is my eldest daugher who was born at Sarva Clinic, Kota Kinabalu on 14 July 1995. Up unitil now, she has a ttended a numebr of educational institutions. In pre-school she had attended "SuauSindak Nursery" (run by Pacos), Felicia Pre-School, Chung Hwa Kindergarten, Likas, and SJK(c) Chung Hwa, Likas. Currently, she is in Primary 5 at SJK(c) Shan Tao Kota Kinabalu.
Obelle is quite an expressive person, matured, and able to relate to adult topics of discussions easily. She commands four (4) languages, English, Mandarin, Malay and Kadazan. Besides school times, she also attended Abacus Mental Arithmetic and Piano lessons. She also attends Sunday School at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Kota Kinabalu and expected to receive her First Holy Communion in April 2006. There she mixed with friends from diverse backgrounds, Chinese, Malay and Kadazandusun. Apart from that, she is also communicating with a Caucasian American penpal in US.
Her hobbies are communicating with friends, attending family gatherings. Her games include badminton and golf. She has also registered as a Scout in her school.
Obelle is a lovely daughter of mine. We named her "Nobleia Teresa Dumbong", obviously for some significant reasons. Nobleia is from the word "Noble", Teresa is after "Mother Teresa" and Dumbong is the Kadazandusun surname that we are going to keep for generations to come.
I Love my daughter, Obelle, very much!
