1. Completing my CF journal.
2. Make full use of my short visit to Doha. (honestly i dunno what to expect)
3. Watch Da Vinci Code either ngan et or Jie.
4. Celebrate et's birthday.
5. Organise Scavenger Hunt- FOC- for kids
6. Update my blog regularly
7. Perform umrah.

****************************************************************
Very the malas to online lately. reason being is my house is under renovation. Smer barang pun berserabut. Azizi Hj Ali said in his book (nt ah yg mana satu.. byk sgt) renovating house is Malaysian favourite pastime. In our case memang dah wajib sangat pun bila hujan asyik bocor jer... the pakciks had started off a week ago. Hopefully ble siap before school resume.

****************************************************************
30/5 - visit Pak Sulung.
He is my mom's eldest brother. Now paralysed after errr stroke kot. I rarely see him but since i was toddler he was the most dedicated uncle in the world. Being a very miskin family (yes we were) He always make a point to visit us and bring goodies.
He is a man of a few words. Was an Imam and Johan Musabaqah a few times. Very pious and respectable. Maybe sebab tu kot i was takut-takut to talk to him. Actually he is very kind. Never raised voice to others.
When he said Doakan Pak Sulung bila kat sana.. Errr rasanya ayat dia tu dah dijangka
but still menitis gak ayo mata... before we went home he gave the money i gave him to mom and asked her to buy apples.
I'm sure his daughter had took a good care of him (no offence to her) tapi as my mom put it, he never asked anything before. Tu sebagai peringatan to my mom lainkali kalau visit to bawak la buah jangan bawak food yang orang tu x ble makan..heheh

************************************************************
29/5 Joyride.

I love my bike. tak kisahla org lain ada motorcycle harga juta2 but my PDY 5247 is my most treasured bike. Kalau cuaca elok I prefer riding PDY dari bawak kete.. Rasa macam best jer bila bawak motor...

So today instead of driving I rode to Slim River. Nak pegi bank jer pun. Nak bayar hutang kat et la plak... benci betul bila hutang... nak tidur pun x lena...

The cashier tu buat peel plak... He said the account no is wrong.. OOOOO!!! called et but she was too bz to pick up.. Adala kot dlm 15mins tried so I went back to him ckp my fren can't be reached.. x smpat ckp he said.. dah ok... heklehhhh... Later et call and confirmed the no she gave tu mmg betul... Hangin!!!!!

To cool down g facial... Tapi nak marah gak coz budak tu baru 2 minggu kerja and sangatla x cekapnya... Tapi x jadi nak marah sebab dia sangat berbudi bahasa and rasa mcm berdosa besar kalau marah dia.. Afterall excited giler nak riding home.. Wuhuu

***********************************************************************

****************************************************************
27/5 KL

I was devastated.
a)Baby who volunteered nak outing sesama mengenselkan diri coz nak pindah rumah.. Dah tiba2 landlord nak umah tu balik..
b) Jie mendiamkan diri seribu bahasa ataupun it was me yang macam nak pangkah Jie.. heheheh
c) et did not reply my sms since yesterday. org call pun x angkat. either tipon kena curi r tak nak kawan. tapi rasanya alasan kedua tu x ble pakai sangat.

But I need to go to Kl coz nak beli few things for Scavenger Hunts and for myself. So sms Nik offer nak bawak my anak2 sedara balik kg. She can't give answer on the spot sbb kids smer tido lagi..

Makanya saya pun pergi ke KL menaiki bas dari Tanjong Malim dengan hati yang berat. Tempat pertama dituju was Turkuaz.. tu pun satu... xder plak tudung yang berkenan.. Pusing kedai lain pun sama.. Suddenly et called dan tiba2 dia yang sibuk tu ada masa nak temankan shopping. Masalah negaranya since x bwk cash I have to borrow from her nak tukar Riyal Saudi.. Jahatla et ni... orang bagi sms x nak balas.. Kan dah kena pinjamkan duit..

Tapi et x nak tgk Da Vinci Code sebab ada ustaz kata jangan sokong usaha yang memutarbelitkan sejarah islam.. iskkk .. xleh nak jawab la..

Et had to ferry her sis to mana ntah after Zohor. Therefore when Azan Zohor we parted. She send me to Bank Negara commuter station.

I called Jie, Nak tgk Da Vinci Code ke x nak? if not I naik tren g Shah Alam terus.. Waaa.... secara tiba2 Jie pun ada masa plak.. tapi sampai Subang pun dah kol 3.18p.m and movie tu start kol 3.10... Sampai ke Summit dlm kol 3.30 and the only seat available was seat depan.. Sangat keciwa.. tapi pas tu Jie beli ubi kayu rebus..and we ate yummy asam laksa..

We were running against time coz 5.30p.m he had to be in club sbb ada tournament.. he sent me to Bukit Naga and from there Baby taxied me to Shah Alam commuter station.. Anjang n kids came along.

Tapi pas tu she came out ngan idea lagi bijak.. naik bas je g kl x yah jalan jauh nak g puduraya.. Maka pusing2 satu Shah Alam tapi x jumpa bas pun.. Last2 naik tren jugak ngan izzudin and ilman..
First time tren ride for Ilman. Zuddin dah biasa.. tapi macam letih betul from the station nak g Pudu.. Ilman asyik nak tengok smer benda ended up terlepas bas kol 7.30p.m. the next bus was 9.00p.m.. Adusss!!!! Sangat letih..

Sampai umah.. pengsan.. What a day!!!

Tapi bila pk balik... I m grateful having frens like et n jie.. yang sibuk mcm mana pun still ada masa untuk kawannya ini... teng kiu!!!!!

On Teacher's Day

5 things i like abt 2006 Teacher's Day

1. Voted The Most Popular Teacher ... again... *sukasukasuka*...
2. Sang Kami Guru Malaysia song twice.. normally once a year jer... tp sbb atas permintaan ramaikan... cececece
3. Able to play games.... Slalu students tengok students jer main.. hehehhe
4. Lots of prezzie
5. Bermaafan... ala2 raya la plak... see... its sort of tradition... camner rasa nak marah pun ngan colleagues and students tapi on Teacher's Day automatically it is forgotten.. we sang, ate and played like nothing happened...

A packet of cocoa crunch

Until now, adiah yg paling x dpt lupa was from Ai Lin and Lai San. I was a subtitute teacher in Convent Greenlane, Penang in 1999. They were Year Four students.

I got many expensive presents from other students. Smer pun suka tapi i cant forget the way these two girls berdiri besides their desks and commented.. kaya lorrr.. i did not get them at that time... udahla tu depa ni asyik diskass in Hokkien plak .. mana nak paham...

Later when others went out for recess the two of them approached me... I still remember their words verbatim.. until now.... sangat menyentuh hati..

Ai Lin brought a packet of cocoa crunch for me... i guess that was meant for her lunch... Tak sampai hati nak ambik but then nak tolak lagi x sampai hati especially when she said dia x kaya mcam org lain... Sedih betulll...

That was the most delicious cocoa crunch i ever had in life!!!

Mad Trip

Yesterday was Mothers' Day. I bought my mom a tudung. Still remember last year Baby gave her M. Daud Kilau tape. Maafkan la si Baby, memang x beriman betul adiahnya.. hehehhe

Nik's n family coming home.

On Sunday I accompanied Et for another massage session at Kg Gajah. None of us bring camera. Cess!!!.. Thanx god this time we managed to reached the house without sesat2. Aminn

On our way home we stopped at Kompleks Sejarah Pasir Salak. Macam best.. Guess should take my anak2 sedara there later... Since we reached Sungkai early, so I did something yg x masuk akal... iskkkk...

Eh today Et spent bapakla banyak for me.. She gave me cloth for baju kurung, 2 cute tudungs, 2 t-shirts (kaler oren n red-balik umah terus pakai) and belanja makan lagi. Pas tu she sent me back to Sungkai... when I insisted to pay she said, bayar once u dpt gaji...

Masalahnya problemnyer... dengan segala mak nenek she gave, sebulan gaji pun lum tentu cukup nak bayar...

Masalahnya Et always think Teachers ni gaji ciput. Ni smer salah his bro... He has Phd but Et claimed her salary is much higher than him. Mcm x best kan bila asyik pau org nih.. (Yes Et I hope u read this!)

btw to all teachers.. Selamat Hari Guru! Selamat nyanyi lagu Hari Guru dengan ucapan... nyanyi la bersungguh-sungguh, setahun sekali jer tu...hehehhe...

Talking abt Hari Guru, I m so proud coz Mr Hashim's poem was published in Utusan er... bila eh... someone told me today.... Actually this is not the first time. He was the Champ for Exxon-Mobil Short Story Competition in 2004 and his articles were published countless time in newspaper and mags..Hidup Mr Hashim!!! Tak kisahla benda ni xder kena mengena ngan myself, tapi the fact that he is my colleague, so x pasal2 nak tumpang bangga sekali...

*****************************************************************************

A fren is coming home from Dubai on Wednesday. I am so excited to see this particular person. Dia kata dia akan try to finish final report earlier so that dia ble balik tomorrow.

I wish I could believe it... tp knowing my fren nih... rasanya2 mcm x kan terjadi jer... tp satu masa dulu dia penah ckp (menuduh sebenarnya!!) errrrr.....malasla ckp...

sbb nanti2 if dia tau, ayat pertamanya misti mcm ni... tolong jgn buat i mcm murid2 u kat sekolah..

masalahnya..dia tau ke how I treat my student?

Sekian, terima kasih...

Pakngah

When Istarted blogging nih, besides et, Pakngah was the first person I talked to. His advised me, ' rajin2lah menulis'.

I never close with any of my uncles. If they came to my house (selalunya time raya je la pun n kenduri) I hardly talk to them. Words failed me. But Pakngah is different. We're not relation. He was my cyberfren since 1999. I still can vividly remember our first email. Till now we still keep in touch. He is the pakcik I never had... Dia sangatla ramah so I don have to talk, I just listen...hehheheh..jgn marah Pakngah

When I told others abt Pakngah, (especially guys) their typical questions were
1. What he wants fr u?
2. Does his wife knows?
3. Old man? What do u want from him?
4. Married man? Y?

Konpius den... I guess they read sappy story too much... Guess they never had true friendships in their entire life.

When in reality, besides me, Pakngah and his family always had gathering with his cyberfrens. So apa masalahnya? ( haaa jawab!!!!)

We first met two yrs ago kot. Was shopping with sisters when he happened took baby naik commuter. He told me he was in front of Kamdar at that time. Masalah negaranya ada banyakla plak Kamdar kat situ. After tawaf few times maka I finally found em'. Rasa nak tercabut lutut... tapi in the end when he said, ' kalau Fizah ada misti org ingat Pakngah ada dua anak pompuan'. *suka! suka* Fizah is his only 12 yr old daughter. x kisahla kalau Pakngah saja nak amik ati pun... tapi suka gak bila disamakan ngan Fizah when in fact I m dua kali ganda tuanya...

Pas tu I visited Pakngah at his office last yr. Partly coz kebetulan I was around, mainly sbb Pakngah told sundry and all dia dpt office baru. He works in DBKL. So bila sampai tu I called him asking betul x his office tu kat depannya ada Bank Islam. When he said yes, maka dgn konpidennyer I proceed to the receptionist asking 2 see Pakngah.. errrr... that was when I realised, i do not know Pakngah's full name.

See..I always know Pakngah as Pakngah the DBKL engineer. Department mana pun x tau. Luckily, thanx to the TECHNOLOGY, within few seconds the problem was solved. Fuh!!!!...

Opsss... its not over yet....

Upon knowing the name of dept, the helpful receptionist guy with his sweeter than honey ready smile gave me a piece of paper and told me, department nih bukan kat sini dik, bangunan lagi satu...

I managed to get to Pakngah's office half an hour later. Again.. rasa nak tercabut lutut... mana nak tau kat depan the other building tu pun ada Bank Islam.. tarukla bank lain...

Mcm sama jer kejadiannya.. event both incident sangat tiring, akan tetapi ia tidak langsung memudarkan semangat meneruskan persaudaraan with Pakngah (ayat buku tuu!!!).. Hidup DBKL!!!

*************************************************************************
Citer lain plak

1. Sunny Sunday at Sentul
Never been to Sentul for all my life. X terpk pun nk g sana. Last Sunday went there for a day course with Uda. Kira mcm terpaksala..

Punyala meraban2 ntah kemana. Called the office a few times, each answered by ustaz himself. Aduss!!! he gave directions yang sangatla mengelirukan. Ada Kfc sebelahnya ada maybank, lepas tu ada Esso.

Weh!!! ada berlambak2 KFC, Maybank n Esso kat situ.., Last2 asked for address.. tapi ustaz ni pun tak tau... At that time i was furious.. tapi my first lesson from Kak Sha was, whatever happens, remember that it might be His ways to test our patience.

Guess she's right. After took deep breath, we managed to find the building. takla susah sangat rupanya... The course was brilliant and helpful too. Glad I attend it.

2. My Oyen sneakers
Badly need new sneakers. Went to Sogo... found sneakers yang in my humble opinion sangatla cantik.. Orange!!! Bought a pair of orange sandal too... Rasa mcm best sgt2!!!!

These were responses from family n frens
a) Uda : Suka? Belila xper (sambil kerut2 kening)
b)Et : Orange? MasyaAllah.. kaler pink xder? Ko ada baju oyen ke? Abis tu x matching la plak ngan tudung yang et br beli utk ko nih sbb dia ada bunga pink.. (note: et is pink follower and we usually beli tshirt sama)
c) Kak Zah: Oren? hahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahah
d) Kak Sal : O? (mulut ternganga luas)
e) Jie : Ok tu, pakailah ngan seluar merah n baju kuning... heheh
f) Children : Misti cantik...

I still remember Dove Shampoo Ad once upon a time.. lebih kurang cengginila pompuan tu ckp...kanak2 ni hatinya baik, apa mereka cakap selalunya betollll!!... i couldnt agree more.

3. Forthnightly Meeting
We had another staff meeting 2day. Biasa je... nothing new. Kak Sha is an efficient boss who never bosses us around. Even she gave a day notice and ungodly hour (to us la kan...) to start off the meeting, no one complains.

In the end, she gave evryone a pair of bright red ladybirds choc.... Waaa... so sweet.. tapi x aci.. Nora amek lebih...*sigh! sigh*

4. Aiya!!! why owezz cry2?
Konpius... last week cried, week b4 cried, yesterday cried, 2day oso cried kaa?

what izit dis time? babysitter, colleague? poison letter?

or ur hubby dearest again?

very susah la like dis... sana cried, sini cried...

wish could help... but how? when others advised her, she will report to hubby dearest... pas tu mamat tu went to boss and complained that ppl sebuk jaga tepi kain org... ler...

now? no fren to go to.. what to do? u asked 4 it mah..

p/s ni ngumpat ker? et kata ngumpat only if kita sebut nama... x sebut pun... kira x ngumpat la eh..

5. Yas
Yesterday on my way to kedai xerox i saw Yas. He was one of my favorites since 4 yrs ago.. .

He changed from a very shy, soft spoken and polite boy into err... a total stranger last year. He ran away from home with silly reasons wic until now never make sense to me. Fortunately his father quickly saved him. It was a month away fr his PMR.

Bumped into him early this yr. Tried to talked to him, like before. It was hard..

Seeing him yesterday and knowing the fact that he quit school was harder.. Asked him to see me in the afternoon, but he never come. Search high n low for his no but to no avail..

Sebenarnya bukanla sedih sangat tapi bila tingat Yas, I cried my eyes out...

I was thinking Ada ke org nak amik dia keje? boleh ke dia survive? Siapa nanti kawan2 dia wen all his bestfrens (Amy n Rul) still in school...Nanti dia kena buli x ngan org kat luar sana?

In time like this... i wish i could turn back time... Pusing balik masa he was form one.... When he was still a naive and sweet 13 yrs boy. Very curious abt his surrounding... The time when he still ran to me when he had problems be it in lesson or frens... The time when he always hang around with Amy and Rul during recess, sharing their food together... The time when we laughed foolishly over some pranks from other classmates... See... i wish he will never change...

Top of all... I wish i could be a better teacher to Yas.

Perkara yang merunsingkan fikiran saya


I was taught by my parents jgn amek hak org, jgn bohong and jgn campur hal org. The first two rs mcm boleh buat.

The last rule bothered me.

1. The Most Pelik Panel's Meeting x penah2 ada meeting yg gaduh2 (x la gaduh sgt sebenarnya pun).... this is my 1st time join this panel. Normally when ppl calonkan ur name for any project.. u just setuju jer... afterall kalau x reti nk buat nanti ada je good samaritans willing to help.
guess bkn smer org pkrannya sama.

tapi lagi pelik coz dlm miting tu ada 8 org jer. 2 kena tongue lashing kaw2 by 3 org n yg 3 org lain berkecuali.

Sadly, the dramas much too intimate to be dropped on in this blog without raising concerns. Besides, could see no point talking about those incidents. A mere bygones storm in a teacup. Mentioning them now will only rubs salt to wounds. pelik tp hillarious.

don ask me I was in wic group.

What i did last weekend

Had Malacca trip on Saturday. I thought I love bus ride.. turned out bapakla penat. So penat then Zana n I buat keje yg x penah dibuat orang... We overslept at public places.

First, we sort of melepak kat Rumah Perlis at Taman Mini Ayer Keroh. The quaint house had a makcik yg tgh goreng kuih ros. she also sold some kerepeks (chips). Even this makcik is friendly but she avoid gossiping..well.. an artist who works there. Best la makcik ni.. We had spicy tapioca kerepeks while sembang2 n tgk makcik tu goreng kuih ros. Sedar2 makcik tu plak tgk kitaorg tdo.. We spend abt 2 hrs kat Tmn Mini tu n kat umah tu je kitaorg pegi.. yg lain2 x smpat.. hehhe

Our nxt stop was Mahkota Parade. From there we plan to visit Stadhyus, museums, A famosa and etc.. But first we asked the local where to get authentic Malacca food. She suggested restoran 35(betulke namanya).. Off we go. True to the words, I found the asam pedas was superb! Next we walked to the nearby bazaar. Lepas dapat a few souvenirs for family n kengkawan we just sat down behind the building. Too tired to move. After some time we walked slowly to our bus.. bukan jauh sgt pun tp rasa mcm bapakla jauh.. after ntah brp kali stopped kat tepi jln, we found an empty bench in the Taman Merdeka and Zana terus tertidur ... Mak aihh tidur sambil duduk.. boleh plak si Zana nih..

Kesimpulannya... we have to go to Malacca again in the near future.. tapi bukanla naik bas lagi eh...

Thanx to Yeen, Lan and Kamal 4 their undivided attention kat children.. hehehe... jgn pangkah kitaorg berdua eh..

Et n Sunday... supposed we go to Seberang Perak last week. But the makcik was busy with her neighbour's wedding feast. I called her on Sunday morning, told by her daughter she's available after Zohor. Call et, dia kata on so call the makcik's house n asked for her address..,

Its been ages since I last balik kg. but I do remember masuk satu simpang ke Kg Gajah from Tlk Intan. we managed to reach Kg Gajah town on time. Had lunch and tanya org tu jln ke masjid n that kg. Lepas byk kali terlepas simpang and berbakul2 soklan kat any passerby we found the house.

Pak Ta reminds me of my wonderful Apak. Rupa, cara cakap dan ntah napa suddenly I realised... I missed my dad badly. Hel talked fondly of my dad too. They were close coz they r cousins.

Back 2 et.. dia kena interview ngan makcik. it just between the 2 of them.. x tau la apa citernyer.... I wished her luck.

on our way back pun sesat lagi... x aci betul org Kg Gajah ni.. tarukla signboard... dah tau ada simpang kot xder signboard mana nak tau tu simpang apa... hangin betul.

et said she wished she could come back to snap few pics. I couldn't agree more. pemandangan sgt la cantik. too bad we left our camera at home.
