Standard One 2014


 My smart but weepy baby

The day after tomorrow marks a new milestone for my second daughter, Hafizah. She's going to embark on another journey by joining her sister in the primary school, SKKJ 1. She did well for her test during the Orientation Day last Saturday. That's why she's joining the first class, 1 Budi.(alhamdulillah).

I'm not so worried about her since she has got she some friends in her class. I just hope that she won't be so weepy anymore especially in the class. She's quite sensitive emotionally. Hopefully no one in her class will try to bully her. Based on Fathini's experience when she was in Standard One, there were some kids who love to bully other kids by asking for pocket money or borrowing stationery and not returning back what they borrowed.

We have to let her learn to be independent from day one as she really needs to be more matured. I've no doubt that she'll be good in her class and make friends as soon as possible. Let's hope that she'll know how to choose the friends that will teach her or encourage her with the positive attitudes.

My baby and me

Makanan Eksotik Di Musim Banjir (BM entry)

1. Hari ni setelah sekian lama, dapat aku merasa makan daging burung. Tak tahu nak cakap burung spesis apa sebab abahku sendiri yang pergi menembak burung di musim banjir. Memang hobi dia sejak dulu-dulu lagi. Kami adik-beradik dah biasa menolong untuk mencabut bulu burung, menyiang dan kemudian menggoreng daging burung. Rasanya? Dagingnya sikit je , macam liat-liat tapi ada rasa tak boleh nak digambarkan. Makan semasa nasi masih panas bersama dengan daging burung goreng kunyit memang jadi nostalgia untuk kami adik-beradik.

#gambar sekadar hiasan sbb tak sempat ambik gambar td.

2. Satu lagi makanan eksotik yang kami selalu makan masa musim banjir ialah belalang kunyit. Yang ni susah sikit nak dapat kecuali kita sanggup meredah air berlumpur banjir dan masuk dalam sawah. Belalang kunyit ni warnanya hijau dan saiznya tak besar sangat. Bila dapat tangkap, terus kami simpan dalam plastik dan bila balik kami akan buang dulu kaki belakang yang tajam tu. Letak je garam dan kunyit dan terus goreng. Rasanya? Rasa macam makan udang dan sangat rangup. Biasa kami ratah tanpa nasi dan makan ramai-ramai. Mesti yang akan rasa geli nak makan bila tgk belalang kan? Kalau tak biasa memang macam tu. Tapi bila sekali dah cuba, rupa belalang tu kita tak nampak dah sebab makan belalang ni lagi sedap dari makan keropok.

#gambar sbg hiasan lg. 


3. Kulat sisir adalah satu lagi makanan yg aku suka bila musim banjir. Dah lama sangat tak makan sebab macam susah nak cari je kat KJ ni. Yang paling sedap kulat ni dicampurkan ke dalam telur lepas tu goreng buat telur dadar. Kulat tu kena rendam dengan air garam sekejap baru rasanya lagi sedap sebenarnya. Nampak ada macam-macam resipi yang orang lain selalu buat. Kalaulah boleh cari lg, mesti sedap. Tapi kan, kulat ni dikira makanan eksotik ke?

Apa makanan eksotik yang korang pernah makan?

Great Lesson for Our Children.

Let's tell this story during their bed time:

Once upon a time there lived a very wealthy and wise man named Abdullah. He had two sons. His oldest son was very hard-working and used to earn his living all by himself. He never asked his father for any money. The youngest son of Abdullah was a very lazy guy and was unwilling to work at all and used to spend all his time enjoying with friends. He used to spend his father’s money and lead a very luxurious life like a prince. Abdullah got too much worried about his youngest son’s situation and thought he badly needed to do something about it. So one day Abdullah called his youngest son and told him to go to the market and earn some money and put a condition that if he was unable to bring home any money he would not be allowed to have his dinner that night. Out of fear that his father would not allow him to eat his dinner, the youngest son went to the market, but didn’t find any work. He came home and went to his mother and told her about it. His mother could not see him sad so she gave him 20 pounds.

In the evening when Abdullah asked his youngest son to show what he had earned that day, the son quickly presented the 20 pounds note and told father that was his earnings of the day. Abdullah was a very wise man and from his experience he guessed that the money was given to him by his mother. So Abdullah told the boy to tear the note and throw it in the pool. The son did as he was instructed by his father.


The next day Abdullah sent his wife to her friend’s place and told his youngest son to go to the market and earn some money with the warning of being deprived of the night’s dinner. This time the son with a very sad face went to his eldest brother and told him his situation. His eldest brother was very kind and loved his brother very much so he took a 10 pound note from his pocket and handed to his brother.


In the evening when Abdullah asked his youngest son to show his earning, he promptly showed him the 10 pound note that his brother gave him. As Abdullah was a man of wisdom he suspected this time the son might have got the money from his brother so Abdullah told his son to throw the money in the pool. The son did just as his father told him to do.


The next day Abdullah sent his eldest son on a business trip and told his youngest son to go to market and earn some money. This time as there was no one at home who could help him the son went to a shop in the market and asked for some work. The shopkeeper told him to transfer goods from the van into the shop. The son could not refuse and by the time he finished with all the work he was sweating profusely. He was soaked in sweat from head to toe and his feet were trembling and he felt excess pain in his body.


The son returned home in the evening with 5 pounds in his hand. His first earning of his life. He showed the money to his father. Abdullah told his son to throw the money in the pool. The son was shocked and aghast and cried out, “O Father! How can you ask me to throw the money into the pool ? This is my hard-earned money. My entire body is aching and you are asking me to throw this money? ”


The father replied with a big smile, “Son, on previous two occasions you didn’t once hesitate to throw the money into the pool because it was not your money and you just didn’t care, but this time you got so horrified and couldn’t even imagine throwing your hard-earned money in the pool. That’s exactly how a person feels when he sees his fruits of labour being wasted.


The son realized how wrong he was and he learnt a great lesson and got to know the importance of hard-work and the value of money. He promised to his father and himself that he would never by lazy and earn money on his own so he could enjoy the fruits of his labour in the right way.

Pray for Kuantan & help them.

We all know the flood situation in the east coast especially in Kuantan is really bad now. Some have got some helps but most are still waiting for some assistance as they are so desperate with the situation. My own brother who lives in Gambang (quite near to Kuantan) said that they are still a lot of people who needs food, water, clean clothes, blankets, diapers and toiletries. He and some of his colleagues from UMP (Universiti Malaysia Pahang) have delivered some food to some affected areas by focusing at the place where the authorities are not aware of their evacuation centre. There are some so called "illegal evacuation centre" because most evacuation centres are too crowded. My family members and I have made some small contributions by donating some amount of money to my brother so that he can go out and buy some supplies for the other flood victims. At least our small contributions can ease their burden during this tough time.

For those of you who wants to contribute too, you can also make some donations through my FB friend:


Hopefully the situation will improve soon. Let's pray for all of the flood victims.

Kalau sudah jodohnya........... (BM entry)

Sudah lama dia mencari idaman hati. Begitu ramai yang dia minati, satu pun tak menjadi. Selalunya dia dipandang sepi. Dek kerana kekurangan diri.

Kalau sudah jodohnya. Memang tak kemana. Akhirnya bersatu jua. Di saksikan sanak saudara.

Kini bermula episod baru. Sudah bergelar "Pengantin Baru". Kedua-duanya agak malu-malu. Mungkin kerana diusik selalu.

Tahniah sekali lagi adindaku dan isterinya; Mohd Rashdan dan Siti Amnah.

Kak Nur doakan kalian sentiasa berbahagia. Banyakkan bersabar dalam mengharungi pancaroba. Alam rumahtangga banyak dugaan dan cubaannya. Bukan mudah mengapai bahagia, tapi jangan hilang kasih-sayang di antara kalian berdua.

Bayi umur setahun memberi peringatan kepada ibunya. (BM entry)

Ini bukan cubaan....Ini betul-betul terjadi. Bayi yang berusia setahun lebih telah memberi peringatan dan pengajaran kepada ibunya sendiri. Kejadian berlaku di rumahnya ketika azan asar baru berkumandang. Si ibu masih sibuk mengadap komputer dan agak hanyut dan asyik menggunakan akaun "Facebook". Bayi yang sudah terbiasa bila sahaja terdengar azan, dia cepat-cepat mengambil sejadah dan telekung si ibu dan  berkata, "Mama, Allahhuakbar"(dalam bunyi pelat bayi baru belajar bercakap). Si ibu rasa betul-betul malu dengan kealpaannya. Pada masa yang sama, si ibu juga sebenarnya bangga kerana bayi tersebut sudah tahu tentang apa maknanya azan. Jadi, si ibu cepat-cepat mengambil wudhu' untuk menyegerakan solat.

Bayi tersebut ialah Husna anak bongsu saya. Memang betullah kanak-kanak masih suci dan fikiran mereka senang dibentuk. Bila kita sudah membiasakan dengan didikan yang betul, INSHA ALLAH mereka tak akan tersasar jauh dari landasan sebenar. Cuma sekarang cabaran-cabaran di luar lebih banyak untuk anak-anak kita. Bila mereka remaja lagi perlu kita lengkapkan mereka dengan ilmu-ilmu lain supaya mereka tidak hanyut dengan dunia sekarang.

Pernak tak anak-anak anda sendiri mengingatkan anda tentang amal ibadat bila anda tengah leka membuat sesuatu?

Graduation 2013 - Aspring Kids Kindy (Part 2)

The continuation from PART ONE


Right after the speeches, the first performance took place. Our Muslims kids from the age of 10 to 4 (from the transit children to our kindy children) performed Nasyid "25 Rasul". I trained them to sing the song since last month and alhamdulillah they were able to perform it so well. 4 of them held tambourines as the instruments to be played along the song. The next item on the program was "It's a small world" sang by our 4,5 and 6 years old. They sang and also did some movements along with the music. The youngest children in our kindy were also given the chance to shine during the event. However only Danial who was so chirpy and excited to dance in front of the crowd. The other one, Zahra held her mummy's hand and asked her mummy to join in the dance. 


My hubby was our photographer (and he took some videos too) on that day. He carried 2 types of cameras and was so busy taking photos and making videos. That's why I could only include some photos here. Okay getting back to the event. Our 4, 5 years old were so awesome when they performed "Shakey,Shakey" dance. Based on the song from The Wiggles, the next item was also a dance using their song. All of the students performed another outstanding performance on "Hot Potato" song.


Our transit children had their own slot when they performed "Oh My English" scenes. They acted out three scenes; "Chop", "Repeat again" and "Borrow me". The parents laughed at the punched lines and we could see some acting talents from the 10,9 and 8 year-old kids. If only we had more time to practice, they would have done more scenes. We only practiced about 3 weeks before the event and we did it during their free time I.E. before they went off to their Religious School or before their parents fetched them in the evening. The 6 years old did a marvelous Indian Dance for us. The song called "Made In India" really took us to India for a while as we were entertained by their smooth dancing moves. The last songs were "Rasa Sayang" and "So Long Farewell" sang by all of the children including the transit children.



The event ended by 10. 30 a.m. After the event, we invited all of our guests to have some light refreshments. Most of them stayed until 12 as they chatted and got to know other parents as well. Some took photos with us-the teachers. Most of them said that the event was short, sweet and successful. I could see that they were happy and excited after they saw their children's performance. I'm glad that everything went well and really hope that we can organize a bigger event for next year.

Graduation 2013 @ Aspiring Kids Kindy (Part 1)

Last Sunday we had our Graduation 2013 to celebrate our students. As a new kindy which just started the operation early this year, our event was a small event. There were only 6 years old students who graduated from our kindy.

The event started on time as most of the kids arrived before 9 a.m. The parents looked so excited and most of them also arrived early with their kids. As the emcee for that day (thought of getting other emcee but we didn't have the budget-hehe), I was nervous before I started my duty. It's been a long time since I became the emcee.

Photos before the event started


By 9.10 a.m. the event started with everybody had to stand up to show their respect to the national anthem "Negaraku". Most parents sang along too. After that, I briefly shared with the audience about our kindy. Next, it was time for a short speech by my MIL as one of the directors of the kindy. She also gave the plaque and presents to our graduate students after her speech.




2 of the students gave a speech in English and Bahasa Malaysia right after the prize giving ceremony. If 2 years ago, my eldest daughter, Fathini gave the speech in English but this year, Hafizah didn't have the confidence like her elder sister. So that's why the teachers had chosen Alif and Sofea to give the speeches.



TO BE CONTINUED..................

You want to spoil your kids, be my guest BUT......

Lately Fathini who just finished sitting for her exams for both Primary School and her Religious School always shares with me some stories. The stories were about how some of the other parents promised to buy some presents like Ipad, handphone or remote control helicopter if their kids managed to achieve excellent result. When I asked Fathini, does it mean that she wants it too? She just shrugged her shoulders and told me she didn't mind.

I don't mind when other parents want to spoil their own kids. My only concern is when other unfortunate kids from poor families feel jealous and demand the same thing from their parents. Knowing kids, they like to brag about what they have and if possible would like to show off whenever they can. I have to admit that right now, we are also having some financial constraint. We don't really have the budget to spend lavishly on buying presents to our kids. I know that giving presents can be a good incentive to the kids BUT how far will we go into giving this incentive? Would we buy whatever our kids wish for just to encourage them to achieve excellent result?

My parents used to give this kind of incentive too but they never specified what kind of presents we would get. After we got the excellent result then only they would brought us for a special dinner treat or sometimes bought some not-so-expensive presents.

We are really hoping that not only Fathini but Hafizah and Husna will always try to achieve excellent result because they want to succeed and not because we have to promise them 1001 material stuffs that wouldn't even last that long.

Do you encourage your kids to get excellent result by making some promises too?

Kuat ketawa? byk tidur? Kurang bercakap? Senang menangis? Apa maknanya ye...

Renung-renungkanlah dan cuba refleksi diri sendiri..............

Psikologist mengatakan:

1. Apabila seseorang itu terlalu ketawa terbahak-bahak biarpun hanya perkara kecil yang langsung tidak lucu dan kelihatan bodoh, dia sebenarnya seorang yang mempunyai jiwa yang sangat sunyi.

2. Sekiranya seseorang itu banyak tidur, dia orang yang kuat bersedih.

3. Apabila dia kurang bercakap tetapi pantas dalam berbicara, bermakna dia menyimpan seribu rahsia.

4. Sekiranya dia sukar untuk mengeluarkan airmata, dia seorang yang lemah.

5. Kalau senang menangis meskipun benda yang kecil sahaja, dia seorang yang berhati lembut.

6. Dan sekiranya dia cepat marah biarpun perkara sekecil kuman, itu bermakna dia perlukan kasih sayang.

Berusahalah untuk memahami orang lain, selepas kita memahami diri kita sendiri. Bukan 100% betul, tetapi ada sedikit kebenarannya disitu....

Bridesmaids, Flower Girls+ A Flower Boy.

Last Saturday, we headed off to Ipoh to attend and helping out my hubby's cousin who was getting married. We missed the solemnization event because it was done on Friday - the day before. We only managed to attend the reception in the Community Hall in Meru, Ipoh.

We took off at 8 a.m. and arrived by 10.30 a.m. The journey was smooth and we didn't stop at all throughout the journey. My MIL wanted to arrive there early to avoid any traffic jam and to help her sister (the mother of the bride) with the last minute preparation of the reception. By the time we arrived at their house, they have done packed most of the guests' gifts. So, we basically just sit back and relaxed before getting ready.

All of us have our 'uniform' given by the bride. We had to sent to a tailor to make them.To be frank, I'm not a fan of the colour and the fabrics chosen but we didn't have other choices. I felt that mine was the worst since the colour resembled nurses uniform or factory workers uniform. For our kids, they had to wear white dresses with a blue ribbon on the waist. The fabric looked like curtain fabric (it's a see-through fabric too) and I do hate white dress for kids. Okay I better stop here about my disappointment on a small issue.

At 12 p.m. , most of us got ready to go to the hall except for the bride. 3 make-up artists were busy preparing her to look gorgeous on her big day. Thus, they had to take about 3 hours before they sent her to the hall.

The flower girls + a flower boy were ready 

At the hall, we were told to have our lunch first with the other guests who arrived early. We helped ourselves with the delicious food. Alhamdulillah the food was good and there were a variety of drinks too. As I've predicted, Husna stained her white dress while we were having lunch because she used both hands to eat on her own then smeared everything on the lap. Hafizah and Fathini did smeared their dresses a bit too. Luckily it was not so obvious.

The bride & groom with the groom's family members only arrived by 2.30 p.m. at the hall. By that time, Husna was already in the dreamland and our kids were also tired of waiting for so long. However, they were didn't make any face or complain (not like me eh... ). They performed their duty as being told by the eldest sister of the bride. The family members of the groom praised them and many took a lot photos with them. They even sprinkled more flowers after the bride and groom were already seated on the dais! Actually it was their first experience and they were so excited about it.

While the bride & groom were seating and posing on the dais, our job was to greet the guests who arrived. After greeting, we also handed over the gifts for the guests and asked them to go inside the hall. I only helped when I could leave Husna with someone else as she was taking her nap for almost the whole afternoon there. Oh...I forgot to mention that the rain showered down the whole afternoon. So, it was quite damp and wet outside of the hall. Thank god they put on 2 extra canopies where we could rest while waiting for the guests. 

The reception went on until 4.00 p.m. when most of the guests have gone and no more new guests arrived. We only managed to take the family photo with the bride & groom after that. Husna woke up just before we took the family photos. She could happily run around the hall with her siblings,cousins and other relatives while the catering workers busy packing up.

Nervous about the wedding.

It's been a long time since I posted the last entry. My laptop had to be repaired by my hubby as the screen became blank after it's been turned on for few minutes. This month, I'm busy with the preparation of our kindy Graduation & Concert 2013. So much work to do and things to be done. At the meantime, my brother Rashdan is also busy. This brother of mine is not like other so called 'normal' brother. (OKU) I've shared about his story before in other entries.

Alhamdulillah, at last he has found his soul mate. He's getting married next month! His soul mate is quite young (19 years old which is about the age like our youngest sister) but she looks matured. They have done most of the preparation and they are just waiting for the DAY. I'm a bit unhappy since I can't do so much to help them as it's so hard for me to go back to Kelantan. Even though I don't have to apply any leave but it's hard to leave our kindy unattended. Yes, I do have the staffs but if there's any problems, they'll call me and at the end I have to step in to solve it.

Hopefully, everything is really been settled by the others who can help us out. I can only call and discuss with other relatives to help us out. I reckon I'm more nervous about my brother's wedding more than mine 10 years ago.

Men VS Women: Why women take more time to get ready.



Does this always happen to you too? Yet, they (men) love to blame us and accuse us for being so fussy about look and appearance when we want to go out.

Al-fatihah utk Tok Mat. (BM entry)

Dua hari lepas, kami terima berita tentang kematian Tok Mat iaitu atok kepada suami saya yang tinggal di Kg Kepayang, Ipoh. Kami terima berita waktu tghr dan kami semua masih sibuk di tempat kerja masing-masing. Mak mertua (arwah adalah ayah mak mertua) bergegas pulang dari KPJ, Nilai. Ayah mertua pun turut pulang dari pejabatnya. Adik ipar dan isterinya juga segera pulang ke rumah untuk bertolak ke Ipoh. Hanya suami saya yang tidak dapat pulang segera kerana ada mesyuarat penting yang tidak dapat dielakkan. Yang lain-lain bertolak ke Ipoh selepas pukul 4 petang. Hanya kami yg bertolak selepas pukul 6 petang.

Saudara-mara di Ipoh memang terlalu cepat menguruskan pengebumian arwah. Hanya mak mertua dan ayah mertua saya yang dapat menatap wajah arwah buat kali terakhir. Kami yang lain-lain ni, tidak sempat. Suami saya agak terkilan tapi apa nak buat. Kami hanya dapat sama-sama bertahlil pada malam itu dan selepas berehat seketika sebelum pulang semula ke KJ keesokannya.

Al-fatihah untuk Tok Mat (Muhamad b. Mahmud). Semoga rohnya dicucuri rahmat dan ditempatkan di kalangan orang-orang yang beriman.

No WhatsApp?

My own siblings and also my husband's siblings have been pestering us about installing WhatsApp on our mobile phone. But until now, we haven't done it?

So, are we considered outdated for not using the current fad? Most of them said that it's easier to use WhatsApp because it's free and you can send and share a lot of things within your group easily as it's all FREE! Compared to sending text messages that you have to pay for each message, Whatsapp is considered a better option.

Actually my hubby is the one who has forbidden me from installing WhatsApp. He doesn't like it because when we install WhatsApp, it's easy for others to know our current location. Thus, it makes us so vulnerable and put us in danger. May be many hasn't really realize this fact. That's why until I get the 'green light' from my hubby, I guess I won't be able to install the application to my mobile phone.

How many of you haven't install WhatsApp in your mobile phone?

Searching for sponsorships.

Right now, the teachers and I are busy searching for some sponsorships for our Graduation cum Concert 2013. The Graduation will be held on 27th October. We've managed to get some companies which have agreed to sponsor some drinks, food and decorations. The companies are Malaysian Milk Bhd, Tutti Frutti and Contra Enterprise. 2 of my friends were also so generous when they've agreed to help. One of them has transfered some money so that I can buy some food for our students. Another one has agreed to bake some cookies and brownies. Baking is her passion and also part time job, so she's so glad to donate some.

We'll keep trying our luck to get some more sponsorships as the date is drawing closer. If any of you is generous enough, you are most welcomed to pitch in too. Just PM me at aspiringkidskindy@gmail.com

A short picnic in Gold Coast Beach in Sepang.

Yesterday we went to Gold Coast Beach in Sepang (Pantai Bagan Lalang ler). It was not our first time there. We went there few months ago but we didn't bring any food and we had lunch in Morib before we checked out Gold Coast Beach.

We arrived by 10.30 a.m. and saw there were already quite a number of other families brought their family members and their own food too. Most of them even brought their own tents. We only brought a small mat with some food and water. Fathini and Hafizah brought their tools to make the sandcastle. Husna was just happy to tag along and play in the sand. We had to walk about 2 km before we could play in the water. There was a low tide at the beach and that's why everybody had to walk so far to play in the water.

My hubby and my elder daughters were walking towards the water

Some of the other families


Husna and I were left alone to take care of our things while my hubby and my other daughters had fun in the water. Husna entertained herself by walking around and helped me (sort of) to build our sand castle. We also ate some nuggets and observed how other families had their barbecued lunch there.

Our sand castle (Husna and I)

When my hubby and my elder daughters came back, we had our simple lunch comprising of white rice, stir-fried vegetables and fried chickens. Fathini and Hafizah rebuilt the sand castle while I brought Husna to enjoy herself in the shallow water. We left the place by 2 p.m. after it was getting hotter.

Status lawak tapi berbisa (Bm entry)

Saya ambik ni dari FB. Memang menarik untuk dikongsikan. hehe

Sempena musim UPSR/PMR/SPM, inilah alasan top 5 kalau kantoi exam yang mak ayah confirm tak marah (inspired by memanda menteri):

5) result exam saya masih baik berbanding anak-anak jiran.

4) result exam saya tak membebankan mak/ayah.


3) kalau tak suka result saya, pergi jadi mak/ayah orang lain!

2) mak/ayah kena ubah gaya hidup.

1) result exam saya adalah ketetapan Allah!

Even the-not-so-experts can help autistic kid.

Before this I've shared about an autistic kid (mild autism) in our kindy. The parents were quite desperate and didn't know where else to send the boy while they are busy managing 2 school canteens. He is the last child in his family and the other siblings are either working or attending school. I didn't have the confidence to teach the special need child but the other teachers asked me to take up the challenge. So the rest was already history.

Now he's been with us for more than 6 months. He has started to utter some words like,  "clever, good" and also sing some songs like "Happy birthday", "Rasa Sayang". Even his parents have noticed the progress and they are so excited about it.

We (the teachers) are also amazed to see his progress and hope to help him more. School environment has helped him to learn (a bit) about socialization even though he might not understand the whole concept. Seriously we are not sure how we've helped him. But one for sure, we never give him any "special" treatment. We treat him like the other kids and tell him to follow all the school rules.

Hopefully if he's going to stay in our school for another 2 years (he's 4 now), he' going to show some more improvements.

Penangan minyak naik 20 sen (BM entry)

Rasa nak berkongsi nukilan Dr Maza di sini. Memang ramai yang dah menulis pasal kenaikan harga minyak. Kebanyakan dari kita dah terasa pun tempiasnya. Tak percaya? Pergila keluar beli barang-barang keperluan dah bandingkan harga hari ini dari harga minggu lepas.

FULL VERSION BY DR MAZA
Kalian Rampas Subsidi kami, entah kemana di bawa lari
Kalian beritahu, wang mesti dicatu, kita menuju maju,
Kalian Kata: Jika tidak, semua menderita, habis harta Negara…
Kalian berbahasa:Bukan Barang Naik Harga…
Cuma sabsidi turun sahaja…….
Kami orang Desa,mungkin tidak pandai kira juta-juta….
Kami orang kecil kota, mungkin tidak sedemikian harta….
Jika kalian tipu sebegitu, biasanya kami diam selalu….
Tapi dapatkah kami dobohongi, tentang Suapan Saban Hari???
Apalah yang dapat diberitahu anak ke sekolah…..??
Papa semakin parah…wang semakin lelah??
Jika semalam berlauk, hari ini Cuma berkuah…
Kerana kerajaan kita sedang susah???
Maka Subsidi kita terpakasa diserah….
Jika semalam kau makan sepinggan, hari ini separuh..
Kerana barang makin angkuh, wang papa makin rapuh…
Apa yang dapat dibisik pada anak berkopiah ke Madrasah..??
Makananmu sayang, sebahangiannya sudah hilang…..
Jika mereka Tanya siapa yang membawa lari…
Kepada siapa patut kami tuding jari??
Janganlah nanti mereka membenci pertiwi….

Akibat mencuri harta rakyat mahrean ini….
Atau kami jadi insan curang…
Kami beritahu: Cuma sabsidi sahaja yang kurang??
Tiada apa yang hilang, nanti akan datang wang melayang….
Dengar Sini wahai yang tidak memijak bumi!
Pernahkah kalian mengintipi kehidupan kami…
Pernahkah kalian ngerti makna derita dan susah hati…
Kami yang semput bagai melukut di kota kedekut…
Kami yang bekerja hingga senja di desa yang makin tersiksa…
Bertarung nyawa dan masa, menghitung setiap belanja….
Pernahkah kau merasa???
Rumah bocor yang lanjut Usia
Baju dan kasut anak yang koyak,
Tinggal dalam rumah yang berasak-asak…
Siang kami sebak, malam kami sesak….
Sedangkan kalian manusia angkasa…
Istana permata dibina,kereta berjuta dirasa,
Elaun diserata, dari isteri sehingga seluruh keluarga…..
Hidangan yang teristimewa, konon meraya kemakmuran Negara…
Tapi kami masih di sini…di teratak ini…dengan lauk semalam…
Dengan hidangan yang tidak bertalam…dengan rumah yang suram…
Dengan wang yang hamper padam…
Tiada Istana lawa..tiada kereta berharga…
Tiada layanan diraja..tiada berbaju bergaya…
Tiada kediaman menteri..tiada hidangan V.I.P…
Tiada persen disana sini…tiada bahagian anak dan bini…
Tiba-tiba kalian kata : kamilah beban Negara..
Aduhai celaka bahasa yang kalian guna..
Kalian yang belasah.. kami yang bersalah..
Kalian buat untung..hutang kami tanggung..
Kalian mewah melimpah.. kami susah parah..
Kalian hilangkan wang…poket kami yang terbang…
Kalian makan Isi, kami dijadikan abdi…
Kembalilah kepada kami harta Negara…
Jangan hanya kalian sahaja yang merasa..
