Amal's wedding




My hubby's youngest sister's wedding reception was held on 17 March at hubby's hometown and the following day was at the groom's place. Since she is the youngest in the family and probably the last one to be held at my in-laws', it was rather big by "kampung's" standard.

All the family members were helping out doing 'rewang' and it was the most tiring wedding that I've ever attended. It was a kind of wedding that I didn't get to enjoy and be part of...

Due to some last minute changes, my daughters and I had to cook for the 'makan berdamai' and we only got to change to our new dresses only after we've finished cooking at noon.  And by the time we were all exhausted and didn't even get the energy to take photos of our finished products...huhu...

However, we had to come out and entertain the guests and relatives (my mom and siblings came all the way from Kedah to Johor, so of course we need to entertain them).

Anyway, i'm so proud of my three daughters who helped out from the beginning till the end and still managed to be happy and all smiles at their aunt's wedding...


Congratulations...


The SPM result was released last Wednesday and it was the best result so far our school has achieved. Last year's result was also the best recorded SPM result in five years for overall achievement with the National Average Grade at 5.04 compared with 5.19 in 2010.


Congratulations to all my former students who had done our school proud...


Some of the best students who had done us proud...

Also, congratulations to my beloved daughter, Nani for the best SPM result for the family. Even though you didn't get straight A's, you've surpassed your big brother's achievement. 7a's is good enough and I'm so proud of you...



and congrats for passing your driving test a few week before the result was released.  I know you must be thrilled and excited to be driving to school to take your result...

Khal



Khal or Vinegar in English is probably one of the oldest and most versatile food item known to us. Nevertheless, I've  never thought that it (dates vinegar) could be used as medicine and what more shocking to me that it has been used as medicinal property since the beginning of Islam (maybe even longer than that) and was one of prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) favourite food.

And in an authentic hadith, the prophet (peace be upon him) has said 
''the best condiment is vinegar."

Thus, I've tried to find this date vinegar and been asking around. Thanks to a friend who has been taking this dates vinegar and had seen the result, introduced me with this along with some herbs...




I googled for more information about the health benefits of it and found it here


Dates vinegar has been used for years as both food and medicine in the Middle East and amongst the health benefits of dates vinegar are:
  • Weight Loss: Drinking dates vinegar will help suppress your appetite and reduce hunger.
  • Prevent cancer: As with eating apricot seeds, regular intake of dates vinegar will help prevent abdominal cancer.
  • Weak heart: Dates vinegar drink is an excellent remedy for weak heart.
  • Eases child birth: Drinking dates vinegar will ease the pain of childbirth. They are known to contain hormones which strengthen the uterus, help produce milk for nursing mothers and also prevent blood loss after childbirth. It also help built strength during convalescing.
  • Menstrual disorder: Help with menstrual disorders
  • Strengthen immunity system: The regular cleansing of the system will remove toxins from the body. This will help strengthen the immunity system. It will also helps in the gastric inflammation and relief constipation.
  • Being high in iron & potassium, it is good for Anemia
  • Fatigue: High in energy and is therefore good for fatigue.
  • Cough: Help to relief sore throat, persistent cough and removing phlegm.
  • Relieves headaches due to heat
  • Heals burns & skin inflammations when applied

5S,5S,5S...


When our school started to (requested to) participate in  the 5S programme, our already hectic life has become more hectic than ever... Whenever we've got free time, we'll be decluttering, organizing and categorizing our things and it's become endless until the end of school day every day. Thus, most of the teachers need to stay back almost every single day of the week to make sure everything is ready by the end of March. And now it's the middle of March already...hmmm...sometimes we are fed up with it but we've got to go on, for school's (and everybody's ) sake...

How I wish my office will look like this after so much time and energy I've given to it...

instead of  looking like this....




Nonetheless, there are many things that we have achieved and improved in the process...and as one of the internal auditors, I know what I'm talking about since I've seen the 'before' and 'after' of all the zones in the school. I know it's not easy for all teachers and students to achieve the target but they should be proud with what they've achieved so far...

 Here are some of the 'after' photos...

The overview of the staff-room


The rack for students' activities/exercises

The scene at one of the girls' dorms



Practically (apart from one or two particular spots), I think we are almost ready for the pre audit by the MPC on 23rd March and the final audit on 28th March. Keeping my fingers crossed...

Right now, during this one week school holidays I think I'm gonna start with 5S at home. Wish me luck...

Forgiveness


"To err is human, to forgive divine."



Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom. Without forgiveness life is governed by an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation. When someone says 'I can forgive but I cannot forget', is only one way of saying, "I will not forgive." Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note, torn into two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.

The weak can never forgive -- forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
