Smart Solat Camp 2009

Cikgu Rohaya menegur dengan penuh kasih sayang

Ustazah sedang memeriksa bacaan pelajar
dengan bersemangat.

Apa ke he nye kome ni Yong?

Amali wuduk

" Budget brp?" as AJK Hadiah (i like!!) I cant hide my excitement. just looove shopping for gifts.

"Nak berapa? " asked him. name is Shaharul Hilmi Ayub.

"ooo..." i understood. this is a no-frills person - dont guess.. seumur hidup saya cuma dua orang je yg species macam dia saya pernah jumpa.

"boss cakap budak2 disiplin kurang baik. Aku katala, mcm komputerla, kalau tiada anti-virus tak guna. sembahyang tu macam anti-virus la.. cegah dari buat jahat. kalau sembahyang pun tak reti sampai bila-bila pun susah nak didisiplin. kita bantu la pelan2, sok kita mati sok sapa nak sembahyangkan kita?" dia cakap. saya setuju.
"nak berapa?" dia tanya sambil seluk koceknya. a sign that i'm well understood.
Later when i relate this piece of story to a fren, Kak Salmiah Rais while we having a tea, she kind of stop eating and give me the look which i'm very familiar with.
"Akak nak kasi duit kan?" i hazard a guess.
"a'a nak berapa?" she asked..
" dah.. kita guna duit Tabung Kebajikan budaj2 ni je la kak, i'll ask Zudin to do the budget". a form 2 student whom i trust and appointed as treasurer.
But then these 2 people's generosity, humbled me.

sms yg masih disimpan

ari tu dgr kat radio.. mcm best plak..

so heres mine

1. couple of family n frends addresses -
angah, anjang, nick, et, len, reno sng bila jln2 n tetiba rasa nk kirim postcard

2. Aulia travel
No akaun dia.. sok nk join trip mana2 sng

- Mak dak jgn sedih nanti kami pun nangis
it was after my operation in 2006. i was in my bedroom n she was in uda's. no elaboration tho.

4. Nadia
- Mak Andak, abah muat baju tu. Ya minta maaf sebab patahkan basikal Zudin.
Aha.. it was on father's day this year. My mom organized a tahalil, she juz came home from Mecca n me fr China. Ole2 is a must la kan.. But Nadia my niece ada satu peel yg x taula dari sapa dia ikut. My bro-in-law Abang Dos baik orgnye, dia mmg ambik berat kat keluarga dia, my sister- her mom plak mmg very selfless sejak kecik.. tu yg x paham tu.
In 2006 masa balik dr West Sumatra, dia menangis guling2 sbb x dpt baju mcm adik2 dia. Costed me few hundred buck bwk dia soping ke Sogo pas tu. Last yr nangis lagi, masa balik Chiengmai sbb dia dpt ole2 kecik. Pas tu we gave her baju sepasang yg sepatutnya org lain dpt. This time around nangis x dapat earrings. Tapi dia dpt yg lebih mahal, dia x kira tu..
Last time ble la maafkan sbb kat umah my sis, malu-malu la ngan ayah dia, ni kat umah sendirik, siapla sy ceramahkan dia mlm tu especially lps dia ngamuk baling beskal adik dia yg bersusah payah sy bwk balik ke Malaysia.
"x padan langsung sikap awak dengan umur awak Nadia Aqilah" mcm kejam je ayat ni. Nadia dah thn 4 skrg, mana sesuai nak ngamuk2 mcm dulu lagi.
I told my sis i've scolded Nadia, dia kata x apa tu yg saya rasa x bersalah tu... but the next morning masa baca paper, Nadia told me that, "hari ni hari bapa la mak andak, Ya x sempat beli untuk abah".
Cair rasanya. Nadia is d only anak sedara yg x pernah lupa Hari ibu, hari bapa n hari guru. So we scoured d house n cari apa hadiah yg sesuai for her father. tu la cter sms tu.. n hope pas ni Nadia x buat perangai lagi...

5. my own sms- huhuhu
Slh sy ke tcer klu sy rse sdih? at first, bro mnta sy tny fmly mnta pstjuan... dorng dh stju, nenek n saudara2 pn ada y dh tau. tp las minute dia kte x jd. ya allah, sy rse malu rs dia main2kan hati sy. sy slalu kena buli kn...
thats d original msg i received on March 14, 2009 from an ex stdent yg sy dh edit kot x lagi sedih bunyiknya. wic makes sy betul2 x lalu makan. eventhough dia dah besar panjang, di mata saya dia masih anak murid saya sewaktu kali pertama sy jumpa 9 thn yg lalu.. hancur hati saya baca sms dia.. so i fwd this msg to the said bro whom i know very well (the advantage of being cekgu sekolah) with a little ermm mild advice - ABU (bkn nama sbnar) I DUNNO WAT HPPEN BUT ITS SURE DSTURBING
Abu did not reply my sms. That was d only text i send. Even we met plenty of times daily that subject never raised. Some things are better left unsaid, i guess.
Their relationships resumed shortly after that. Thanx god.
The mild advice is not something i m proud of. I juz hate masuk campur hal cenggini, but juz cant help it. Janganla buat pasal ngan my students... hilang akal ke hapa?
Didnt surprised me when she told me last week, they were dating and they saw me walking with a bunch of kids and the guy was like terkedu and his color changed , "teacher la.."
I didnt see them. And from my position n situation at that time there is no way i could see them. It was crowded and with the kids around its juz hard to be distracted to others.
"Dia mcm terus terdiam n mcm takut pun ada" add her..
The last thing i want in my life is scaring ppl. Therefore, i wish i don hv to send mild advice text to no one in future. x best la jd org yg ditakuti...

thanks baby

i hate Cameron Highland for obvious reason.. couldnt stand the steeply road. kids punya pasal sy layankan aje. like last year, d kids (diff bunch this yr) were handling a bloom stall.

everything was fine, took lots of pix, evry one had a jolly fun time, except pada hari kejadian, saturday morning, tergamak depa datang lambat. yeah rite!!! mana la bisness nak maju kot pukul 7 batang idung pun x nampak lagi. really blow my top!

other than that smer pun best. untung pun ok if not for something yg x diduga. we rewarded a few members in our group who worked harder than everyone. hopefully it will spurs others to follow their steps. Congrats to Group 5 (Kamarul, Nazua n Miza) for highest sales, izati the treasurer, syida d Pm, Atika for her devotion toward this sales, and 2 boys ban n shah.

on Sunday, woke up early and spent my entire morning at a workshop. cost me rm346.50. thats for timing belt, engine oil, brake oil (last tukar 2005) and filter. time consuming maa.. abis la baca Mingguan Malaysia n Sunday Star kat situ.

After that went straight home and read agatha christie - after d funeral and sidney sheldon's special delivery. a very old books i required from Novel Hut recently. yeah i m writers' nightmare..

Had special hol on Monday. Watch d long awaited Half-blood prince. A spectacular show indeed. Baby came a long way from Bangi to accompany me.

We had chic deluxe n double cheese burger for lunch, and after provoking d salesgirls we decided it was not a value buy no more i mean.. heyyy katanya RM5.95 je... baby was such in jolly gud mood afterall she got a free clinique set from her dear sister (i couldnt stand her nagging ok)

then we had doughnut wic baby claimed d craze in town but i don even noticed and my long time fav - asam laksa.

the doughnut with oreo was too sweet for my liking and d asam laksa was not as i used to remember. the broth lacked its oomph and somehow the taste of fish chunk irritates me. might be sbb perut kenyang so banyak songehla.. padahal suruh masak x tau jugak..

it was almost 10 wen i reached home eventhough we parted our way at 5. public transport sucks.. and a wee bit dissapointed with puduraya also, i heard it have been upgraded but.. well too much noise. in a way it was cleaner than before but an annoying young man tergamak meludah kat depan org ramai..

i mean i don minda if an old people done that... budak muda tu... lack of civic minded betul..

apart from smer kejadian yg saya komplen2 tu... i m very grateful having a sis like baby. thank baby for a wonderful monday.

next week kta g d proposal lak k?

bandwagon - here i jump!

i was quite flabbergasted with sudden response for the death of a political secretary. While i am deeply sorry to the deceased family, especially his fiancee, but i really couldnt fathom why these people put the blame solely to MACC?

Maybe i watched serial Cantonese drama too much. (i grew up in d era of Police Cadet pukul 7-8 kat TV3 in d 80s until la the recently-showing Flaming butterfly kol 8.30-9.30 kat 8tv - sure x miss).

According to d drama- pergh!!! unfortunately i don hv DeNozo (NCIS) verbatim-film-quote - there are 3 posibbilities (based on d drama je)

1. its the underground-society wic the deceased was once linked to, a way of stopping him from revealing unnecessary details.

2. death is the best option under d circumstances - jz like a minister (negara mana eh) committed suicide while he was under investigation. but then if anyone committed suicide misti ada surat r anything.. xder plak yer..

3. accident r under duress r dutch courage r sleep walking - i know.. very lame

Since #2 n #3 macam x berapa masuk akal sangat, so from d start i tot it was #1. Even from the day i heard abt the discovery of sprawled body on the rooftop.

Afterall MACC was established six month ago, how come the rest of d suspects who came for interrogation still alive and kicking? Now... its something 2 ponder..

For the family it was an eternal loss. Thinking abt them, makes me feel sorry #1 ever crossed my mind. I m sure he was a good guy. Well.. i shudnt watched serial chinese drama too much..

What puzzled me a lot is - Whre is d CCTV? Show us d truth nothing but the truth.

x per ker kalau terharu?

I found collecting Nilam books was really uphill battle. No elaboration tho.

In the end i was so exhausted and demotivated. So i read my fav book wic i used to scour when I was down - First among equals by Jeffery Archer.. very x kena mengena but somehow it lift up my spirit... a bit.

Once the task was over i bought jars of cheap candy to distribute among the kids who hand in their book.

To each of them i said how thankful I am having them as a student. Most muttered their thanks quietly. But there was this sweet girl. Named is Syima from 5 Dahlia.

She said, nayy... rasa self worship plak kalau tulis kat blog nih..

Suffice to say i was so touched and hilang segala rasa exhausted and demotivated. People said they learn from teachers, but then in my case, i learn from the kid.

Like the words on the bamboo tree i saw in taman Herba, Bukit Tinggi West Sumatra. Sometimes we juz so self-centred until someone (in my case Syima la) knocked some senses to us.
Thank u Syima for making my day (dah lama dah.. saja je baru nak tulis)
Yes.. even until the moment i blog abt it, i m still rasa terharu.. X per ker?

Speaking abt movie.. Had a boom-boom-splash-errr-mini-drama 2day. Actually d drama took place on Tuesday, thanx god i wasnt around, attending a crash-course.. Course lagi..

Hal kecil saja, tapi dengan sifat semulajadi manusia suka membesar-besarkan cerita, cerita sedepa jadi sejengkal.

Called both parties. No, not going to reveal anything, but theres something i learnt loong ago but still aplied until dis very day...

Yang paling kuat nangis tu la yg bersalah.. crocodile tears!!

Sangat drama la dik... but no.. i m a pro now, so nangis la sampai banjir pun... so used to budak2 cengeng nih...isk isk isk

Untuk encik serba tau..

1. Surat Pembaca di dalam Berita Harian, Sabtu 11 July, 2009
An UMNO man (dia yg tulis) said that masa 2 thn sblm PPSMI dimansuhkan is for "guru-guru PPSMI menyelenggara pendapatan mereka kerana elaun dipotong". Fuhh very insulting!!!
But nayy... I shud expect that when he used his party after his name. Mind u, dalam surat pembaca je. Why not just tulis nama, and whre u from instead of tulis company ke hapa, ke organisation r something. r u view representing ur organisation?
Pas tu, dia tulis suh org DBP jangan buat kerja lepaskan batok ditangga (ejaan dia patut batuk la tuan.. appraa) buat terjemahan yg asyik "melayukan" perkataan Inggeris..
Dia tau x ada berapa langkah penterjemahan spt yg digariskan oleh Baker 1962? Kalau dia tau misti dia tau bahawa pilihan yg dibuat oleh ITNM tu la yang terbaik lepas ambil kira semua langkah yang ada.
Dia tau x tetuang udara tu apa? Cuba sebut kat orang berapa kerat je yg tau..
Kalau tau.. jawabla.. mana terjemahan yang lebih baik? radio ke tetuang udara?

saja je taruk gmbar bunga... untuk menyejukkan ati yg panas...

Blood and water, wic is thicker?

family heirloom( hehehe)

Guess we dun hv much things in common unless our interest in political issues and supporting d same party.
While we, the women in d family speak non stop, our bros prefer to ignore us. Acho is included. teruk tul..
Eventhough Acho is our younger bro, being d eldest, he is d man of d house.
We still talked fondly of how he taught us things.. like how to change d gas, change flat tyre, change bulb, fixed leaking tap, checking car's and bike's engine, fixed broken furniture and fixed apa sajala barang umah yg rosak. If he could get his way, silap2 bumbung rumah pun dia suh kitaorang tukar..
He also taught me to drive, tapi after numerous futile attempt i lied that i m fasting and nak balik rumah before. the truth is he was a bad teacher.. dah sah2 kereta tu masuk semak, tolong je la reverse kan... tapi dia suruh gak saya reversed sendiri, pas tu marah2.. mana nak tau.. bengkeng sangat..
Actually that's how our father raised us. Cant blame him when he has 6 daughters before blessed with the first son, Acho...he juz continue d legacy.
Even until now, Acho still d first man we turned to when we r in need. he rarely express his opinion, but its d action that speaks louder.
like when i texted him, mintak due hengget kredit dah abis, pas tu ari dah mlm pas tu takut nak g pekan sorang2 pas tu jiran dpn umah xder pas tu mcm hari pun gelap, pas tu mcm takut kot apa2 jadi.. (well... kena convincing la kan)
he juz send kredit more than i expected...
lap u Cho!!!

If only u were here!!!

I've wrote about how do i feel on this event before. But still, i attended it. While others would run to d tailor for new dress, i simply put on a year old- our-family -baju-boria-masa-yus-kawin. a very cheap plain blue Myanmar Silk and a Chiengrai Sarung wic had seen her better days.

After subuh i texted et, telling her about it. her replied make my eyes moist, eventhough it was just a mere "congrats". its d unspoken things that make me so oh heart-broken. watever that means la kan...

Since my schooldays, i was told that ppl never see me mad and sad. It puzzled me before, coz i do have my fair share of bad days. Over the years i took it as a compliment. And i wont start being gloomy in public.

Heres a few things that i treasured most on this day
Met Kak Jah. Was my colleague, now she transferred to Slim River. A bubbly sis, cerita yg x kelakar pun ble kitaorang gelak berguling2. A gud cook, loves to eat and loves pampering us with her famous laksa pangkor. A great friend, i must say.

Sat next to two Norizans.

The orange Norizan is from Tapah. A fine lady, a likeable person too.

The peach tudung Norizan was my Advisor during my undergrad-trainees in 2000. She was okla..never gave me problems and very helpful. felt so lucky having a x-banyak-songeh-advisor like her. After grad we never keep in touch, was told she transferred to Kelantan.
Never tot i would see her again.

And the articulate MC of d day is Kak Noreha, my weekend housemate-cum-obersea-trip-mate.

I dunno, i still wish u r here.
