I don't know what to write today. Perhaps jotting an update on our little family would be a good entry for today since this blog is like a public diary to me :). Let me begin the updates on us from the youngest to the oldest ;).
Banyak updates on him tapi let it be in his blog. One thing I wanna write in my blog is, I'm so jealous when he always utters "Bibik.. bibik..". The helper has been with us for only about a month but he could say Bibik (very clear) already. I am with him for more than a year and 6 months and only recently that he utters "Mmi.. mmi.." (bukan Ummi pun uhukkk!!). I'm really envy! Only the good thing is, he always prefer me than anyone else :). Yes, that makes me such a proud mother ;).
She's not feeling well starting from last Thursday. Her body felt warm and heaty. But, it was only at night (demam malam I think). She complained of headache and asked me to massage her forehead. While we were climbing up the stairs yesterday evening, she told me, "Ummi.. nanti tolong picit kaki Coan ya. Kaki Coan rasa gedar la..". I asked her "Gedar? apa tu?". Then she said "Gedar la..". My husband and I giggled as we really have no idea of what gedar actually means. By the way, this girl likes a create a new vocabulary :).
After an almost every hour of nagging by Ummi and Abah, at last, she managed to complete her English workbook, a 90 pages of spelling exercises given by her teacher. It has to be completed and submitted before the winter break which will be on 5th December 2008. It wasn't that difficult (though there were times that I myself don't know what the questions required her to do) but she kept delaying the workbook. Yesterday, she completed it and today and the rest of 4 days more, she can enjoy watching her favorite channel or playing computer games, provided she doesn't have any other homework to be done :).
Neeza (the Ummi)
I've started my school vacation today! I'm gonna miss all the lovely teachers until 13th December 2008. Feels a bit weird actually since for the last whole month, I was not in the house during this time. Shahmey is sleeping at the moment and I'm in front of my laptop - checking and replying emails and also visiting blogger friends. Not to mention, updating my own blog :). Today's cooking? Well, I have some leftovers from yesterday night's kenduri doa selamat at Mr President's house. Reheating is the best thing to do. Perhaps, I'll add something to my own sambal ikan bilis leftover. Petai perhaps! yummy...
Abang (the Abah)
He's eagerly and busily preparing himself for the fifth pillar of Islam. He has finished the 5 day course (evening only) organized by the Da'wah Centre. I can't join him this time for a reason - I'm not fit for it yet!. He talks about it a lot and me, I just had to kinda ignore him since I'm actually sad. If I give comment or opinion about it further, I may end up crying since I know he'll be away for more than a day. After a year plus, this will be the first time we are gonna be temporarily separated. But, I have to accept the fact that he'll be away for a huge responsibility. I pray to Him for his safety and happiness. Also, I pray that he manage to complete his ibadah successfully. Ameen...
That's about it for today. By the way, this message is meant for you Abang. Thanks for the little something you bought me on the 27th Dec 2008. It'll surely save my eyes ;). I really appreciate it :).
