An anniversary and a birthday...


So, yesterday the day had finally arrived and its hard to believe that I woke up with the knowledge that it won't be a typical Wednesday morning...(hubby took a day off amidst his busy schedule, thanks dear) its our most awaited anniversary - Our 25th anniversary...


I know what we have been through all these years, its not all shine throughout, I must admit and we have our ups and downs. Nevertheless, it was all worth it and those difficult times have made us wiser and our relationship become stronger...it was just a way for us to learn more about our strengths and weaknesses ( I know that I'm still learning even after all these years)... it added spice to our lives...

And I'm most grateful to my hubby for those wonderful years that we shared...

None-the-less,

Every time we celebrate our anniversary, there'll always be the third person who would join our special day because it is also her birthday - Nani has turned seventeen and she is in the middle of her Big Exam,SPM. Luckily, yesterday's was Add Math paper and she is not taking it so she could celebrate together with us...she has always been the 'baby' in the family and  got to choose the place to celebrate her birthday (even for other siblings)....

She chose The Manhattan Fish Market Restaurant (thank God)...


Happily choosing her menu

Delicious ' mud pie' and salad
Aan and abah



All smiles waiting for the cake...

And, the anniversary presents....

10 commandments of Human relations...


I found this Commandments of Human Relation in a torn book that I 'd like to do away. Just like to share it here so it'll not be gone with the book...
(L'ecole Des Ettiquette Training guide)


1. Speak to people

There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting 

2. Call people by name

The sweetest music to  any one's ear is the sound of their own name

3. Be friendly and helpful

If you want to have friends, you've to be friendly

4. Be cordial

Speak and act as if everything you do were genuine pleasure

5. Be considerate of others' feelings

This will be very much appreciated

6. Bear in mind others' opinion

There are three sides to a controversy - yours, the other person and the right one

7. Be genuinely interested in people

You can like almost everybody if you try

8. Be generous with praise; cautious with criticism

Remember, the best thing to do behind a person's back is to pat it

9. Be ready to go extra mile - willingly

What counts most in life is what we do for others

10. Smile at people

It takes 72 muscles to frown and only 14 to smile. And isn't the smile the fierst thing you notice about a person?

The Girl who...





I know its a bit too late for me to be reading this trilogy but what the heck,  better late than never, so the saying goes....When I first laid my eyes on these books last year, I've never thought that I would read them as obviously they are not my types, I don't really go for crime stories (even though, I read Sidney Sheldon's) but last month when my friend told me that she was reading the third book of this trilogy, it occurred to me that these books must be great...so, I bought the first two when I had the chance and they were on discount...

    By the end of October I've finished reading both of the great books, it took me about three weeks to finish those books, juggling my times reading and other routine. I must say the story is different from what I've normally read and it doesn't finish even after I've the second one...thus, I needed to get the third book.





The third book is the conclusion to all of the mysteries. Even so, for me the first book has a lasting impression and my favorite of the trilogy. By reading this trilogy, I've picked up a habit of drinking coffee (used to be my favorite)  as critics put it that we can't go over a few pages without mentioning coffee thus it really tempted the reader to be drinking coffee while reading...

Overall, I would rate this trilogy as awesome. For this year, I've read eight out of my goal of ten books. I've two more to go and most possibly I'll be reading Khaled Hosseini's...

November




credit

November has always been my favourite month of the year. This is because there are plenty of things that I'm looking forward to this month. The first thing that comes across my mind is that the school holiday is just around the corner. smiles. Secondly, in November there will my wedding anniversary and this year we are celebrating our 25th anniversary. Hmm...hard to believe it's been that long.

Nonetheless, before enjoying my holidays and celebrating anything there are loads of things that need to be settled down. First, today Nov. 14th is D Day for SPM candidates to be sitting for their exam. Not only the students are nervous, we the teachers are also having butterflies in our stomachs especially when we were sending them off to the exam hall this morning....I could see some parents were present as well to see their children off to their battle field. How lucky they are... and pity my daughter, Nani for not having even one parent to see her off to the exam hall...

Anyway, I've been praying hard in my heart for them (my daughter as well as my students) so that they would answer their papers with ease... I'm keeping my fingers crossed for them... Best of luck!

There were also a few things need to be done before the school ends for this year. There are times that I wish I had more than 24 hours a day so that I could finish the things without delay...unfortunately, some of the tasks  to be completed need the collaboration from the others thus, it's tedious and time consuming.

However, I've got the feeling that I'll manage and everything will be done accordingly...

Then, when I'm done without doubt I'll be enjoying my life anticipating and expecting for new excitements the holidays will bring...and there'll be a lot of planning and executing to be done preparing for 2012...can't wait...

Blessing moments



It's the time of the year when we are having an event that called " Majlis Restu Ilmu". It has become a yearly event at almost every school of late especially when the BIG day is nearing...SPM examination.



This is the time when students come to meet all the teachers and ask for their forgiveness and blessings. It was a touching moment for me when some of the students came with tears rolling down their cheeks asking for forgiveness. It does not necessarily mean that they have done great sins or broken my heart or anything like that. Its just their ways of coming clean with us, the teachers, so they believe that they would answer the exam well...

Some of them even came with their parents thanking us and asking for our blessings. I believe it was be due to the fact that this year's program was conducted by the president of PTA of our school who happens to be a motivator. He had given a very moving speech that touched deep in our hearts; the students, parents and  teachers.


The president with his beloved daughter


Some of the supportive parents
 

In the past, the relationship between students and teachers was clearly defined. The teacher's role was to teach while the student's was to learn. But now this relationship has been somewhat different and we know that teachers too have a lot to learn from the students as well as their parents... I guess the relationship now has been a two way street...and I must admit that I've learn a lot from my students...

Anyway, to all my beloved students and daughter, I'm wishing you

"All The Best In Your Exam... Do your Best!"
