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.

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.

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.

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.
