Hari ini bawa anak-anak ke Carnival dekat Cinta Sayang Club. Bukan semua pun yang boleh dibawa sebab si Along dah balik ke kolejnya dan si Angah berada di Rawang rumah Alangnya. So yang tinggal si kecil berdua tu la, Kakak dan Adik. They were so excited in hearing that we are gonna take them to the Carnival. Tak pe la.... sekurang-kurangnya kurang lah sikit tahap keboringan mereka berdua tu. Maklumlah asyik kat rumah je, Mama dan Baba kerja.
Spent about 4 hours there, dah kecut pun tak nak keluar dari air juga. Nasib baik le ada Babanya nak temankan dalam air, if not, sure bising punya. Kali ini tak nak uploadkan pictures lagi lah. Nanti-nanti bila dah transfer, baru upload semula. Malas benar rasa malam ni.
Yang seronok nak dikongsi bukan la pasal anak-anak mandi tu sangat. Biasa sangatlah bagi they all tu, mandi kat situ ka, swimming pool ka, laut ka, tak kisah berapa puluh kali pun, tahap excitement tetap serupa. Tinggi sokmo!! Hai anak-anak......
Yang nak dikongsikan di sini adalah pengalaman saya menghabiskan masa menunggu anak2 dan Babanya mandi-manda. Berkesempatan pula berbual dengan seorang lelaki berketurunan Cina. Ingatkan dia dengan anak-anaknya. Bila sikakak menghampiri, saya menegur, " macam Melayu rupanya". Tau apa katanya. "Dia memang Melayu". Tercengang sebentar saya. Anaknya Melayu? Budak tu berkulit putih macam anak Cina tapi matanya tak sepet dan mukanya macam anak Melayu.
Dia terus bercerita, katanya anak jirannya tapi dah jadi macam anak sendiri. Ibubapa dah berpisah, anak 7 orang dan mereka org susah. Jiran nya sejak 20 tahun yang lalu (tapi sekarang sudah berpindah tempat tinggal )maka budak tu dah jadi rapat dengannya dan keluarga. Even call him Daddy. This man is a contractor dan punya 3 orang anak yang semuanya dah besar-besar belaka..The child actually sekolah kat SJK Cina and she speaks Manderin excellently.Lepas itu, datang pulak sikecil. 6 years old her age and to my other surprise to my own question : Dia pun Melayu juga. Dan anak kecil itu bukanlah adik kepada sikakak yang tadi tapi dari keluarga Melayu yang lain. Ya Allah...........manusia ini memang berhati mulia, cuma harapanku semoga janganlah akidah anak-anak itu dipesongkan. Bila time makan, dibiarkannya bebudak tu makan dulu, lepas dia org dah tak nak makan, pergi sambung mandi, baru dia makan. Masyaallah........Bila time nak balik, dipimpinnya tangan kedua-dua anak itu macam anak sendiri and who would be saying that those are not his sebab muka kedua-duanya memang macam anak Cina!

Here are some stories of us,the Malaysian Clipsters during our visit to the Singapore National Library on 15th August 2008
During our visit to this library, we were taken on a tour around the place.First, we were quickly ushered into a room where a librarian, Ms Shiela briefed us with slide shows of the functions of the library to the school going children, the resident and even foreigners.
There are several levels; each level caters according to the age group.There are the primary level, teenager and the adult section.Books are neatly placed and the library appeared richly stocked with books, Cds, magazines and other reading materials.
Honestly, we were deeply impressed by the facilities available. Most tasks are electronically run.The atmosphere in the library was set in such a way that it is made homely and very condusive and inviting to stay and spend time reading.There is comfortable furniture around to sit and relax while enjoying the books. The shelves are full of articles and imformative leaflets where readers can access with the latest information on the latest book titles etc......
Frankly speaking, we were amazed by what we saw during the visit to the library. It's a wonderful experience indeed and I would like you guys to feel and share the same wonderful feeling ...........
Happy reading and enjoy yourselves!!

Presentation time for the students is the most unfavourable moments as that will test their public speaking skill and confidence level. Grammar goes haywire and sentences jumbled-up here and there but those are the reality we as the lecturers here have to face. Having students who scored excellently in other core subjects but unable to present themselves well in English is a heartfell situation actually.
So we took her with her sister, Nurul Irdina Syaffiqa who was reluctant to take part. Nevermind that as long as she's happy,right? It was a two-hour assingment with lots of details to be completed and lots of the contestants were finaly got fed-up. Nobody in their right minds will force those young contestants to continue since the picture given was so detailed. Based on my experience as a former teacher, I questioned my hubby who answered me : honey, they are not teachers, how on earth will they know whether their picture suits the contestants or not. Well, that made sense.
Finally, my sweetheart let go of her picture unfinished. That's it and we did not force her as we respected her right.We headed towards Pizza Hut to ' celebrate her success in not completing her assingnment' he he......
