10 Dec

school holiday means we are out of school. my youngest sister, my nephew, niece and me are ecstatic bout having the whole month for us to lazing around and have fun! hence, we’ve decided to travel to kuantan and stay at my sis’ for a week.. as i was parenting for 2 hyperkids, i started to realise the mounting pressure a mother face to cater for growing children. i never say it’s easy but i always believe it’s manageable!

after 3 outings to the mall, i am more ready with a mommy tool belt .

  1. jacket – going to the mall can sometimes too cold for the kids. with the unexpected changing weather nowadays, it’s better to be careful and bring little comfort from home for them. if you are planning to catch a movie, it’ll definitely help
  2. wet wipes – these little urchins would munch, spin or fall anywhere they go. keeping wet wipes could wash off all the mess in secs 😛
  3. red zone – toy shop is the main attraction or even the toy section anywhere in malls. snacks, tidbits, ice cream and choc are other sections to avoid especially if your payday is a month away.

 

there’s many important hassle free factors to consider when they are at home too

  1. keep them occupied – hyperactive kids wouldnt stay quiet after 5 minutes. it’ll be a torture to them to sit still so, it’s our job to prepare them with things to do. provide them with toys or workbook to do colourings. kids love to paint!
  2. play play play – kiddos should be given equal n suitable toys to play with. if there’s more than 1 kid around, the toys should be according to their likings and interests. dont give them boring toys or more than what they needed. more spells trouble as one or another would want more than the other.
  3. enough titbits – as they play, children like to munch and drink. there’s no harm giving them frequent snacks as long as it’s healthy and low in sugar. giving too much of those will make them more active (sugar high alert).
  4. diapers ready – whenever they fall asleep, the tendency to wet their bed is high especially if they are too tired. so, moms, just put on the magic absorbent as precaution ( you dont want your rm300 carpet to have yellow spot do you)
  5. med box – flu, fever or even tummy ache, moms should always carry the right remedy for them. 

modernization and technology aid parents in managing their children with numerous gadgets and gizmos. i, however believe, a parent should be witty and organised in nurturing their children. although i was a surrogate mom for a week, yet, it was fulfilling and overwhelming

word COUNTS

Assalamualaikum 🙂 

Reminisce what she told me once;
” I think you’re good at reflective writing.”
So here we go!

I still can remember our first meeting. It was during the Minggu Haluan Pelajar. She was the one who explained to us about the House System in Boarding School. I remembered the master of ceremony introduced her as ‘Cik’.

“Oh, still single,”most of the students would probably think so.

They say, first impression counts. So as usual, I made my own judgment.

“She’s strict, obviously. I like the way she talks. I think she’s okay.”

Time passed by and all Form Four students had to sit for a special test. It was the method that the teachers decided to choose in order to know in which set we are suppose to be. A few days after that, I looked at the notice board, seeing my name in that teacher’s set. Yes, I am going to be in that strict young teacher’s set. I prayed that nothing bad will happen to me.

To know you
Is to love you

The lyrics were telling the truth. Being in the teacher’s set made me realized and discovered who she really is. She is a superb teacher, the one you can share your problems with. Well, of course I did not dare to do so. She is a great teacher, the one who treat you like sisters and friends. Still, that does not mean that we can play hide and seek with her. The barriers are still there where you should respect her just like you did to the other teachers.

I can perfectly tell you how she knew I am a blogger. We were assigned to describe about someone that we think should be known. Since I was doing the task with Nabihah Ishak, we decided to write about each other. So Che Nab, that is how they call her, wrote about me. On the paper, she wrote down my blog URL. My blog link with no error. And perhaps, that was how the teacher knew about it.

Whenever she told the whole class about something regarding blog, I would look somewhere else. I would not be proud to know that one of my teachers knew that I am a blogger. In my opinion, I guess they might read my blog and someday, maybe they would discover about my bad records at school. Or perhaps about the real me, who was not a good student as they once thought. These probability made me feel insecure. Until the moment I am writing this.

In her class, sometimes we would play simple games. She would say any words that came across her mind and we have to wrote something about it. We would submit that paper to her and the next day, we are going to smile to see her comments. She would leave some comments about what we were trying to tell her and not to be mention, at least a smile =)

When writing essays, some of my friends would tell her indirectly about the latest gossips in school. Sadly, she would not let us read the essays. It might be a problem to some teachers to have students who would tell them about hot gossips in their homework, but not for this 32 years old lady.

She would motivate us whenever we lose hopes. She would punish us by asking us to wait outside Bilik Kuliah for five minutes if we are late for her class. She would stay in Bilik Guru Perempuan and ask someone to deliver her message about what we have to complete on that day when she was not in a good mood to teach us. She would laugh to hear our nonsense talk. She would tell us to have some walk around the school when we are too sleepy. She would tell us to go to the toilet and wash our faces. She would be the one who would assure us that everything is going to be okay. She is the one, the coolest teacher I have ever had.

Thank you teacher for everything. I am begging for your forgiveness if I have ever hurt your feelings all this while. I am sorry if I could not give you high marks for English but I would like to let you that I have done my best in SPM.

Happy 32th birthday to Teacher Yusnita:)
May Allah bless you always.
Wishing you would found your soul mate as soon as possible HEHE ,
have a great time with your love ones,
with a great health and of course, with the same warm smile on your face:)
Stay as you are.

domestic violence

24 Nov

a man with full force struck his fist on his wife’s jaw, ignoring the frightened children watching them in a tug of war between insanity & the desire to satisfy the hunger for pain. the vivid image of pure barbarism would remain deep in these children, in their hearts and mind. but the parents, would never care how it would defected the children inside. at the moment, what matters is satisfaction..

i witnessed such agonising tragedy with these two innocent eyes. watching such terror was heart breaking. i tried to help but i was hapless. weak compared to the energy of the madness driven in the blood of the predator and mind you, even the victim was in full throttle to defend the little soul left.

bruises & cuts were visible, yet, the hearts went weary & died.. it stopped beating once the so called husband made the first hit. the moment it touched and bruised the wife, she was practically dead inside. sadly, the children died too. died from an abnormal family relationship where it is normal for a father to  give a hard blow whenever his needs are not fulfilled. whenever the questions he asks are not answered and to as tiny as whenever the children ask for milk.

ironically, the victim would remain clingy and defensive to the abuser. the reason behind it would probably be out of dependence, yet, there are thousands of reason why and all of it would be unknown to us the outsider.  i pity the children. they didn’t respect their father but fear him. that is not love.. subsequently, the children would accept abusive force as means to get things done. to get whatever they want. little by little it’s portrayed in their normal day to day situation and fist fight is becoming routine and mandatory!

to consider nature vs nurture, when a man has the nature to beat off people just to show he’s right, it’ll nurture the same beastly attitude in his children especially to the sons. men tend to show their temper physically and most of the time, it would take a toll on the family.

abusive individual could come in any forms available. be it a fisherman or labour, but it could come from the intellectual group too. it’s the nature of these creatures which determine their doings, not the level of education they receive. it could be traumatically inherited or it’s in their blood.

just be careful out there. once they hit you, it might happen again!

 

 

 

 

cakes of the century

10 Jul

The common dictionary defines cake as a sweet food made by baking a mixture that usually contains sugar, eggs, flour, and butter or oil. Most of us like cakes for its pleasurable and sinfully delightful taste. Name any flavours you want, there’ll be tonnes sold anywhere your feet could carry you.

Cake making is not a mere keeping up to the demand of sales but more of an art & competition nowadays. There’s no more simple decorated nor flavoured cakes but extravagant & peculiar as it embodies the development of men’s ideas & creativity.

Ever watch Ultimate Cake Off or Cake Boss? Just to name a few shows that display the high but attainable skills & ingenuity in crafting a cake. The shows have actually expose us to the new perspective of how enjoyment plus need can aspire unthinkable creations. A magnificient & spectacular sweet delicacy.

Mitch turner is one of the prominent cake shop owners in the UK. Gordon Ramsay, the saucy chef of ‘hell’s kitchen’, quote her as the bentley of cake making masters. She is the famous owner of celebrity-favorite little venice cake company (lvcc) . Her clients, of many are noted figures like madonna, pierce brosnan, david beckam and even the Queen. Lvcc’s lines of cakes are artistically figured & eye catching which includes party cakes, coutoure wedding cakes and even vintage. the intricate feature of a cake at lvcc marked up the price which can mount to 1ook but it is only a small expense for the rich & famous.

exquisite collection of LVCC

on the contrary, there’s always two sides of a coin. we have beautifully crafted cakes and we also have eerily mind boggling cakes to fit particular occasions mainly Halloween. men are developing but also nastily creative that leads to preparing savage looking cakes or simply frightening, that it makes some of us nauseous just by looking at them. it could range from ghouls & ghosts, dark legends or plain sickening. browse the internet and you’ll find numerous sites  catering for ‘dark’ cakes or even supplying the recipes to bake or decorate them. mind you, these kinds of cakes are also popular in demand even for weddings! go figure.

lost my appetite 😦

all in all, cakes are moving forward. moving together with the advancement of technology and mind of humans. looking at how the designs now, we are either making a difference or becoming more subconsciously psychopath. i refuse the latter.

under the foundation, a letter was sent to my school inviting all students to participate in an essay competition. the english panel decided to ask every students to send in their essays entitled “why my mother is so important to me”.

all other writings are boring and cliche except one essay written by a boy. he wrote everything about why his mother is important to him like everyone else with only one significant difference. as a woman with demanding career, i was touched when he said how his mother gave up her job just to take care of him. i quote “she told me that having money was fun, but having me was better”

as it was a reflective essay, he sincerely described how the mother educates & takes care of him. i was blown away as i am in no position to quit as i don’t have kids neither i have anyone to depend on financially. i wish i could do the same if i ever have children of my own because i do think it’s a holly thing to do.

to all mothers, thank you 😛

17 again

7 Jul

i was interested to watch this teenage flick last year when i saw the making. it seemed funny & light. but dunno how, i forgot all about it. last nite, my wish came true, it was previewed on hbo. my sisters & i were overjoyed, not the fact that we are zac efron’s die hard fan or what, but the trailer was funny.

through out the movie, we were smiling ear to ear to the fact that when we wish we are young again, it will not be the same. we might dread the decisions we made, but those clumsy, foolish & even mindless decisions had made all the person we are today.

age has somehow turn us into a different individual with different needs & desires. we tend to forget why we do things in the past & the reasons behind all our mistakes. forget why certain things matter so much to us & certain things should just remain history.

wishing i too were 17 again & living a wonderful problem-free world.. 🙂
