How was your first day of Ramadhan? Mine was excellent as it marked the day my first-born fasted for the first time. He woke up for sahoor, performed his five times solah for the day, and went to the masjid for Taraweeh.
Yes, he is a big kid now. How time flies.
“The fasting person has two occasions for joy…”
Daanish is half-way through his Year 1 mid-year examination. So far, he's done with 9 papers and there are 4 more coming within the next 2 days. The examination covers 7 subjects and includes everything they've learned since the beginning of the year.
"How were the tests, Abang?"
"Okay", he answered.
"Do you think you can get 100?"
"Yes!" replied confidently.
I complained in a post about how Ayra refused to cycle even after we entertained her request for a new bicycle.
When we came home from work today, Ayra presented a Mother's Day gift she handmade at school for my wife. She followed the exact instruction her teacher gave. She said:
You hug, kiss and give the flower. Happy Mother's Day!
Last weekend, for Mother's Day we decided to have a staycation at our favorite hotel in KL. It's a good thing my dad works for Starwood because paying for a two-night stay at Le Méridien wouldn't be such an easy decision to make if we're there "just for the fun of it".
It only took 3 weeks to plan our family island vacation. And we picked Redang.
We drove for 5 hours from KL and stayed a night at one of the closest hotels to Shahbandar Jetty. The next morning, we had a quick breakfast at the coffee house. The only thing worth eating was the Nasi Dagang. Read my short review of the hotel on TripAdvisor here.
Today is the last day of school holiday, but Melaka is still packed with humans. We were in town yesterday afternoon, wanted to find out what the big deal was with Jonker 88's cendol. We ended up driving home disappointed after spending 40 useless minutes trying to find a single parking spot.
