THE DAY BEFORE EMIL'S BIRTHDAY

Emil will be 6 tomorrow. As tomorrow is a Monday, we decided to fast forward his birthday celebration.

We have told Emil that he's not getting any toy for birthday gift from this year onwards and we will give books as presents instead. How did he take it? Well, let's just say that he did not jump through the roof when he heard that from us.

At the end of the day, he got half a dozen books from us, a digital wristwatch which is more expensive than mine from his aunt (my sis-in-law) and his grandmother and a yo-yo from me.

He blew his 6 candles at 10pm.

OPEN HOUSE DAY

Yesterday was filled with attending open houses. We went as far as Gombak and came back to Suri's house in Seri Petaling, which we scheduled as the last house. We had nasi putih, nasi beriani, nasi kerabu & nasi dagang at all the four houses that we attended.

While on our way back, it was already Maghrib, we decided that we haven't got enough. So we offer ourselves to Ajak to visit his house. The offer was accepted despite Danny, Ajak's second son is recovering from fever. But we specifically told Ajak and Evelyn not to trouble themselves to prepare anything for us. Nevertheless, Ajak & Evelyn went quite a length and cooked bihun goreng for us.

A day full of social activities.

REGISTERING EMIL

I have just finished the school registration for Emil for next year. But not before I was made to run from one place to another. I have to say that the runaround was partly my fault as the registration should be settled in the month of August ONLY. Being utterly lazy and ever the procrastinator, I took my time and went back to the school last week only to be told that the registration period already ended. The other part of the fault had to be attributed to the school officials as they could have offered a little bit more information than "...Cik datang balik Ogos nanti untuk sahkan pendaftaran...".

Anyway, all turned out ok in the end. So Insya Allah, Emil will join SK Bandar Seri Putra come January 2010.

WORDS

If you happen to meet this guy in the streets or anywhere for that matter, you might need to add few words to your existing vocabulary so that you can have a meaningful conversation with him. For ease of reference, I put down here some of the words together with their meanings:

1. manbob pen-pen ==> Spongebob Squarepants;

2. min min ==> vitamin;

3. chi-gep ==> kunci gate;

4. leh tak ==> boleh tak?;

5. amot ==> remote;

6. aalat ==> solat;

7. lagu hai-yap ==> lagu ‘You Raise Me Up’;

8. lagu sad ==> Auld Lang Syne;

9. ater pan ==> Peter Pan;

I will update the word bank regularly.

TRYING VERY, VERY HARD

Am trying very, very hard to update the blog...

Trying very, very hard to collect the thoughts and turn them into words...

But, but - am still lazy...

Maybe tomorrow...

Yes, it shall be tomorrow...

With pictures, hopefully...

No, no pictures, please...Pictures are shortcuts...

Put words, real words...

Yes, there shall be words...

But then, I shall save some words for I do not have many...
