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".
