I brought Emil to Friday prayer today. He hysterically insisted to follow me. I cannot use the word 'no' lest he would not want to go at all in future. In the end, I relented and hoped for the best.

Alhamdulillah, all went well. He sat tight and listened through the 2 khutbahs, though he did perform some acrobatic moves in the process. He performed his 2 rakaats (aku memang tak khusyuk la, asyik menjeling je). After salam, gave him a kiss on the head and he hugged me in return. Rasa nak menangis pun ada masa tu.

Syukur Ya Allah...syukur.

ADUH!!!! BISA...

We started using help of an indonesian maid since last July. The 2 boys are now left under the care of the maid while we are at work. Household chores are now lightened to some extent.

However, of late, Emil has been speaking a mixture of English and Indonesian. Recently, for example, I had told him that he will not be able to unlock the keys to our house. He succeeded after few tenacious attempts. At that instant, he turned to me and casually said, "See, Emil BISA!!!"

Kari Paling Best Di Manjung

If you happen to be in Teluk Batik (or Manjung or Lumut), try to locate this small eatery just after the junction to Teluk Batik. This gerai is situated alongside the left side of the road heading to Teluk Murok (one sign says Teluk Muroh), just before Masjid Sultan Idris.

The makcik there cooks a very tasty curry that all caution about waistlines will be thrown away. I went there twice, first for breakfast and another for lunch. Both times, I had a very delicious and satisfying meals. The price was really, really cheap too.

Don't take my word for it. Please have a go yourself.
