One big happy family...

The last 2 days had been very busy for me....my mum and my siblings came over....
it was such a havoc having almost everybody  from my BIG family around....
Luckily, I had renovated my house though not entirely complete....
or else there wouldn't be enough room for everybody.... 

It was practically all about cooking and eating and chatting......
I don't remember cooking so many times in my life for two days.... 
Anyway, it was all worth it...it seems that everybody was happy......


Almost everybody in the pic were coming....



Now, all my siblings had gone back and my mum is staying for a few weeks to spend time with my children.
Hope I will be able to give her the best time ever... so there will be some changes in my plan...
I will not be able to spend most of my time reading as planned cause it won't be appropriate for me to so while she is around....
I need to think of activities which will include her....
So, I think I need to concentrate on gardening since she loves gardening so much and my garden is dying....maybe some advice from the expert will 'relive' my garden...huhu..

The only thing that bothers me is that I'm afraid I won't be able to finish my reading list on time...anyway, I've finished 'The Last Song' and have started 'The Wedding Planner'.....

It's official

Officially, starting today I'm off from my work...no more duties and no more modules...
Apart from a couple pre-planned meetings, I'm having a loong holidays
and will break free form the routine ....

Well, there are so many things to do (or at least I planned to do) in about a month..
now, maybe I need a check list.....
Firstly, of course I need to do some housekeeping around the house....
there are places like kitchen, home library and garden which need some serious attention.

Next, I need to give home tuition to my three children who will be sitting for major exams next year..
UPSR, PMR and SPM ( huh, this is a real challenge!!)
I mean to get these three LAZY teenagers to study during school holiday??? Who am I kidding??
Well, at least I need to give a try...if it is not working, then, we'll think of other alternatives...

Then, I need to finish my reading list...now instead of three, I have five on the list (yesterday my dearest hubby bought me two new released novels as my anniversary gift...well, may be it's not a romantic gift idea... but I love it so much since I'm planning to spend a lot of time reading this holiday...)
 
A good thing is that I am almost finish reading the first book, The Last Song.....

Now, let's make the first move....

Selamat pengantin baru  Hairi, semoga bahagia ke anak cucu....

new members of the family



My eldest daughter brought a rabbit home last week, given by her friend...
It is loved by her siblings so much since they have always wanted a rabbit and/or a hamster for so long..
It is taken care of by them and they even named it..Caca Jr




Then, two days later, out of the blue, my youngest daughter called me at work
saying that her friend wanted to give her two hamsters because she is moving 
to a different town.....
Then, I told her if she really wanted to have the hamsters, 'go ahead and have it'
She accepted the hamsters happily.....
Now, they have two hamsters and a rabbit as their pets...
Welcome new members of the family...

JB, here we come....


Finally, after more than 5 years I am in JB again....
However, it is not as what I expected...JB is not the beautiful city that I had in mind.....
heavy traffic ........dirty places....hazy air.....

Anyway, we checked in at about 2.00pm,
the hotel is not bad, overlooking Singapore.........

M.U.E.T

I learnt some shocking facts about Malaysian students when I was invigilating MUET (Malaysian University English Test) at a local university yesterday. The first thing that learnt is that these students have rather lackadaisical attitude about almost everything...they didn't really care if they brought all the things required for the exam...such as the exam slip, identity card or the stationery. A number of them left their exam slips or rather lost them....while some didn't even bother to put their IC on the table (only did reluctantly when they were asked to do so....)

One funny incident occurred when one candidate brought only one pen and it was just happened to be that his pen was out of ink during the exam, one of my friends had to borrow a pen from the other candidate for him so that he could continue answering..... and the other incident when one of the candidates was caught writing someone else's index number on his answer sheet (for whatever reason it was.....)

These incidents showed that the university students in Malaysia have some serious attitude problems. Even though the situation above only happened during that particular time, we can infer that it is the reality among students nowadays and it reflects the attitude of young generation as a whole.......

Monday blues...

I think I have a Monday blues today, it's the kind of day when you don't get anything done right....or rather you don't know what is the right thing to do....it's kind of confusing and it is exactly what I feel right now....I'm confused....don't know what to do right now....My mind has not been tuned in to work after a long weekend....am working on it now...starting off by marking and more marking....

Big Flood at my hometown..



When I was a little girl, I had always been wondering of the thrill of having a flood in my area. Those days, the news about flood in the eastern part of Malaysia was a norm but not in the northern part like Kedah. Since the past few years, however, my hometown in Kedah has been hit by flood every time it's monsoon season like what we are having right now.

It reminds me of my nostalgic feeling, I really wanted to experience flood in my area. As far as I can remember, I have never experienced one. Even when my hometown has been badly hit, I still didn't get the chance to experience it because I 'm staying in different state.

But now, after seeing the news on tv and listening to story from my mother and relatives....about the lack of food supply, the terrible smell, no access road...etc,etc.......I don't think I want to experience it. Let it just be a nostalgia....

The photos are posted by my brother on his facebook on Nov 3rd...and it's still flooding now....

expect the unexpected

In this life, we have to expect the things that is least expected.......Last night, out of the blue my sister called me saying that my youngest sister was admitted to a newly operated private hospital....she was sent there by her friends cum her housemates..... they had to send her there due to a heavy traffic jam (to get to the public hospital) and her condition which was so bad at the time...

so, my sister (and my family) who is staying in the northern part of the country asked me to see her at the hospital and take her out of there.....the point is that, even though my family knew that my sister is suffering severe migraine since a few years ago...we never expected that she would be that bad and never in our lives suspected that she one day would be admitted for that...she does not have a medical insurance and the one that I have doesn't cover for a sister....

My family was worried if she to be admitted to the private hospital, the cost would be thousands of ringgit. The doctor (very young one) there insisted that she needed to be admitted to ensure that she was free from any viral infection .....

My hubby and I decided to take her to the nearest public hospital as my mother wanted me to take her there...At the emergency room in the hospital, we were forced to wait for almost an hour before we finally got to see the doctor (an old boring one) who was very sarcastic about my sister's condition...finally my sister was sent home by him with a painkiller ( what an irony.....)

Upon reaching home she went straight to bed and slept until almost midday....she woke up fine, had her breakfast and studied for her exam...Thank God, she is ok...it was a migraine after all..
The lesson that I learn here, we must be prepared for the things that we are least expected to happen (like getting a medical insurance).....and don't take things for granted (it could happen to anybody)...glad that finally everything ends well......

lalala....

Today is a holiday...

it's a holiday.....and it's a five- day Deepavali holiday...am looking forward to spending more time on reading (I haven't finished reading Paths of Glory which I started 4 months ago). I need too find time for that, but wait before that......need to do the house chores which I kind of ignored during the school days, prepare the module and marking and marking.....oh well, how could I ever spare a little time for myself to indulge in reading with all this waiting list?? Now, stop pondering and start reading....my goal is to finish at least 3 books on my reading list before the year ends.....
