EID 1438 IS FINALLY HERE


One of the things people do is to create their own e-greeting cards to be posted on social media such as Facebook. And I managed to find the five pieces of "work of art" as early as 2013.

THE TRADITION OF GIFTS GIVING CONTINUES FOR EID


I was called by friends to drop by at SMK Taman Universiti after school as they had to pass to me some Eid cookies/goodies as well as Eid presents.








From the bottom of my heart, I am truly touched. Thanks everyone for the kind thoughts and generosity. Only God could repay your good deeds.

SPOT THE ERROR 101


Thanks to Mr. Fahmi Khan for the resource, all the way from Kedah (right?).

WHEN EID IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER [PART 2]


4 more days before Eid arrives this year. 2 more days before the school breaks for a 1-week holiday.

Time is running out. I could only continue doing the household chores after the Tarawikh prayers, which would be after 10.00 p.m. Sometimes I feel like I am doing an extreme makeover to the house and this happens annually.

Oh God, please make me stronger. :)

WHEN EID IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER


Eid is just around the corner and the madness has already begun.

This will be the time I will be more anxious, rather than excited, to welcome Eid. With a series of meetings and Iftar (breaking fast) in school, there is no way I can go back home early and spend more time to do the necessary preparation. I will have to think of small things that could be done in one day.








The cleaning was done today but that was just the beginning.

God please give me strength.

MY COLLECTIBLES - TEACHER'S DAY PRESENTS [PART 2]


Just another catalogue of my Teacher's Day presents that I still keep up until today.























I always believe that it is the thought that counts.

MY COLLECTIBLES - TEACHER'S DAY PRESENTS [PART 1]


Eid is coming. I took the effort to clear some of the clutter in the display cupboard at home which contained presents received and accumulated during Teacher's Day. I used to giggle and laugh every time opening the small packages and I couldn't believe that after may years, I still have them safely kept. I guess I miss the good old days every time I celebrate Teacher's Day in my two (new) schools.






















And the end product...








It is true after all it is the thought that counts.

I am now thinking of either opening a museum or having a car boot sale when I retire.

BOOK REVIEW - JODI PICOULT'S "SING YOU HOME"


The story of a husband and wife , Max and Zoe, who had to opt out for in vitro method to conceive. After several failed attempts, Max finally filed for a divorce and soon after that, turned into a very religious person. On the other hand, Zoe met a new life partner, got married but her spouse was a woman. They then tried to get the frozen and fertilized embryo as Zoe still wanted to have a baby, and here the conflict started as Max did give his consent. Then the courtroom drama began and in the readers would have to anticipate the ending who would be awarded of the custody of the unborn child. You have to read this on your own to find the answer.

Picoult has been writing quite a number of courtroom drama series it seems and I wonder if all of her books are in the same genre by now.

This should be my 9th Picoult's already. Here are her other books that I have read:


(1) Change of Heart
(2) My Sister's Keeper
(3) Plain Truth
(4) House Rules
(5) Picture Perfect
(6) Perfect Match
(7) Mercy
(8) Keeping Faith
(9) Lone Wolf

BIDDING FAREWELL TO OSAKA AT KANSAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT


21st MARCH 2017 ~ I had the chance to walk around the mall attached to the airport main building after my udon breakfast, and even managed to buy some souvenirs to take back home. My effort to wake up very early to get the airport really paid off after all.















Kansai Airport was actually built on reclaimed land on the ocean. If the weather was good that morning, I could probably get to see the view of the ocean from this spot.








This should be my very last post of my visit to Osaka and Kyoto last March. Just hope I would have the opportunity to go back there one more time to see and experience more.

Now I don't have anything more to write for my blog. I need to travel again desperately.
