i ain't a teacher

i was in red baju kurung this morning for a function in school, with pearl necklace, white handbag and matching white shoes. some of the school children (especially those in year one) who doesn't know me yet thought that i am a teacher!

"assalamualaikum cikgu. cikgu cantik...", greeted them, when i walked by ;)

oik... ada ka? lol... so do i look like one anyway people hehe...

well, luckily both puteri and megat backed early today. i had another shower after we reached home around 2pm. this time i wore pink baju kurung. i know its seldom teachers in school saw me in that type of attire. like this morning, when i salam with one of them, she told me, "you look so cute...". cute ke? hehe... i normally wear my jacket suit or something ;) i had all those during my office life in kl many years back. so rather than i keep them in my wardrobe, its better for me to wear them for any special and suitable occasions right.

alright. about the PTA AGM at puteri's school, all the members agreed to appoint me as one of the committee members. and now that i am holding two different positions in two different schools, i am sure that i am gonna be a bit busy for the financial year 2008/09.

basically, planning and promoting PTA programmes and events is one of the most important responsibilities in a PTA. the PTA works to support the school's educational goals, to provide a safe and healthy learning environment, to enrich the learning experience, and to enhance the mutual understanding among the parents, and teachers. for the past years, both of the school's PTA have been playing a very important role in supporting education, operation, and administration, as well as safeguarding students and organizing community events.

with that rather good explanation, i dunno of why there are still some parents who do not have the initiative to attend PTA AGM. its only done once a year! so what's up with that. that's a very good time for parents and teachers to discuss things together. some even pull out when their name been selected for one of the nominees for the committee member, yet not even voted that time. don't they realize that we are doing this for our generations. we want them to succeed. so what's with me whose still the PTA vice president of my former primary school right? puteri do not study there no more. i do not even have kids there also. one thing that's always wandering around my mind-- i studied there before, and that i love my school so much. i want to help the teachers to make our school proud and succeed in whatever we do. i had received feedbacks that those are not monetize job (?). excuse me... i have given my reasons above, and that's about it. i do not need money to help the community. i look for my side income elsewhere, i.e. ventured into paid post for this blog and my baking blog too ;)

so what say you people?



program nilam

i have just came back from my former primary school (also puteri's) *phew*

what did i do there, you asked? since i am the PTA's vice president, i have been invited to join them this morning during the school's weekly assembly, with the president; followed by this launching ceremony of "Program NILAM 2008" for the school. i am sure those you malaysian mothers with school-going kids know about this programme. if you dunno what is it all about, then i dunno what to say ;)

so basically its the country's level programme to encourage school children to read. just imagine people, according to the national library's survey, the ratio of locals who read books to-date are two (2) pieces only! thats certainly not something good to be heard :(

the programme at the school has been launched by en mohd suhaimi b. hj. zahir, ppt, pegawai teknologi pendidikan, pkg talang. read more about this programme here.

about my position as the PTA's vice president, i have been selected for the same position again for the second time (on last friday, for the financial year 2008/09). for those who dunno, previously it was for the year 2007--09.

o yes... some of you may wonder, since my former primary school sk datin khadijah is an all-girls school, why on earth there are some boys there in the pic right. well they are some students from the special kids classes. i was so glad to know that the school has about more than 10 classes now compared to two only (sometimes 1.5) during my time ;) they are so special, yet that i cried every time i saw them. in fact i think the teachers who teach them are indeed truly amazing too.

where else i will be at my former secondary school this afternoon for their PTA AGM :)

警 察, 老 虎, 手 枪

i was at the family room, watching dunno what on tv when suddenly i heard the sound of the boys, echoing from the dining room-- "jǐng chá, lǎo hǔ, shǒu qiāng".

then i was like, "oik?!! what are they playing? that surely sounds like good for a video recording hehe...". i also thought that maybe its just something like our kind of "one, two, som...". what say you people--

translations: police, tiger, pistol 8)

kuE's note:
the other children in the video with megat were megat's cousins didin, shahriman and puyin [pôo yǐng/ผู้หญิง (that's little girl in thai, as her mother is from there)].

wash & blow in kuale

i have just came back from puteri's school. her school finished at 12 noon on friday. while megat at 1.05pm, but he will only go back at 1.35pm, for extra class. thats how chinese school here i.e. year three kids already have to attend extra classes in school. well its not a problem for me at all, as its for their own good also ;)

i dropped by the saloon earlier to get them to 'wash & blow' my hair. believe it or not people... its been almost a week since the last time i did it cuz i was so damn busy ler... *glurp* :~) luckily i have to attend my former primary school's (also puteri's) PTA AGM at 2pm, if not... hmm i dunno ler... hehe... one of the sisters at the saloon asked of the place i am going after that. hah! can you see that people? she's very much aware of my style already-- always wanna do my hair nicely whenever i am heading for any special functions or sort.

so can you people guess of the cost i have paid for the 'wash & blow' session only? RM9.00!!! yea... u heard me... i paid them RM9.00 only ;) i asked one of the three sisters of the damage that i should pay. first she told me that it was RM10.00; but then she quickly reconfirm it with her elder sister. after that she turned back to me and said, "RM9.00 saje lah". i was like, "owh ok... tq!".

look at that people-- how on earth you could get that price for a 'wash & blow' session in kl huh?!! tell me. well maybe that price is for a regular customer like me. but anyhow RM10.00 still cheap right. correct me if i am wrong 8)

i used to be very regular at thomas & guys when i was staying in subang before, so i know. beside, prices in klang valley are well known to be a boom! whatever it is, i dun care lar... as long as the local' are good too! take a look at my today's hair people, not bad right? so how much do you pay for yours?

what is life?

people like to say, as if it were obvious, that life is hard to define. this is misleading. life has properties that clearly distinguish it from everything else.

firstly, every living thing is cellular. in other words, it is either a single-celled creature or a creature composed of biological cells. every cell is bounded by its own outer membrane and contains a full set of instructions necessary for its operation and reproduction. furthermore, every cell uses the same operating system: "DNA makes RNA makes protein". DNA is a long complex molecule that contains the cell's instructions. it is transcribed into RNA, another long complex molecule similar to DNA; and then the RNA transcript is translated into protein. there are hundreds of billions of different proteins used by living things, but all of them are made from the same twenty amino acids, the "building blocks of life."



revamping the blog layout

just a warning. i'm revamping the blog layout so if things seem wonky or missing or scrambled for the next little while, that's why. i wanted something would reflect the supposed oldeness of the blogge, even though the blogge's not that olde... you know what i mean.

hopefully it will be sorted out soon. don't worry though, soon it will be a great new look, with the same craptacular content hehe...

the indon clans story

my grandmother's late elder sister married a guy (decease) from medan. that's how roughly we attached to the indonesian heritage a bit ;) unfortunately i have never been there yet. even kechik is likely knew more about it than me! lol... cuz she traveled there often. read more about her java travels here. i know i know... the places there are damn beautiful. ya i am sure i will stepped there someday.

so i was asked for trips there by our medan relatives earlier--"ha... kuE enggak pernah lagi jejak kaki ke medan. bila nya mau ke sana?" hehe... we met at my cousin ijoe's wedding reception at bukit chandan [that's where the masjid (mosque) ubudiah and istana (palace) iskandariah are located]. the akad nikah (solemnisation ceremony) was held last weekend at the bride's family place in gombak. i didn't go cuz i was so busy with my own agenda hehe... only mother, grandmother and some aunties went there. gosh!... i didn't even have the time to blog about my previous trip to kl, also with the school holidays :)

alright, back to ijoe's wedding reception, its just a simple one where only closed family and relatives were there; the spread of their indonesian food were so
scrumptious i tell you, all done from a gotong-royong by the indonesian clan--i like! o yes... do check out my plate, as it may looks familiar? if you don't get me, go here. that means it was indeed a truly kampung (village) style wedding.

my favourite pic this time is the above, of megat with his cousins shahriman and didin. view the rest of the pics in the slide below--



to ijoe & nita,
congratulations! may both of you live happily ever after...
love, chor!

hello Olympics, bye bye kittens!

obviously, when you're hosting a party you want your place to be relatively clean. dishes washed, dirty clothes in the hamper, pizza boxes in the trash, etc. and when you're hosting a party the size of the olympics you have even more to worry about. like dangerous cats.

though, the solution is easy. just cage them up and transport them to death camps on the outskirts of the city.

Thousands of pet cats in Beijing are being abandoned by their owners and sent to die in secretive government pounds as China mounts an aggressive drive to clean up the capital in preparation for the Olympic Games.

Hundreds of cats a day are being rounded and crammed into cages so small they cannot even turn around.

Then they are trucked to what animal welfare groups describe as death camps on the edges of the city.

The cull comes in the wake of a government campaign warning of the diseases cats carry and ordering residents to help clear the streets of them.

kuE's note:

here. take note that i dun dare to copy and paste their "disgustingly cruel" pics here in my blog--thats just not me :( but if you want to, just go to the link. some of you people may know that i am truly into saving the environment right, so obviously i hate those people who have done such thingy to animals. shame on you chinese!


yeah. that's not good.

i'm willing to bet that not every cat killed is disease ridden. though, the government seems to have done a good job at scaring the citizens into believing that all cats must die. even their pets that spend their days indoors, and are perfectly healthy. hopefully, the rest of the cats don't band together and overrun the olympic village.

since i have known about this terrible news, i would always think that our cat pussy is so lucky, whenever i look at him. you could see the difference of him from the last video i loaded about six months back. pussy now has grown to a very healthy male kampung (village) cat. fyi he (pussy) never eat any other food, as he only goes for cat food ;) puteri did try to place a fish in front of him. but he just sniffed it out, then walked away lol...

surprise is not a surprise

late last night i received quite a number of the star sms alerts informing the results of the country's 12th election day. surprise or no i.e. ministers like samy vellu and shahrizat have been defeated by the opposition parties. this really show that the "rakyat" has spoken! whatever it is like my bah wished, i do not care of who wins, as long as we live in peace and harmony ;)

on the other hand since there are too many places, i guess its enough for me to include screenshot result for kuale area. go here for more.

today in history...


  • international women's day
    i am certainly glad to be in this circle as there is a special day declared for all women around the globe.


  • malaysia's 12th election day
    with regards to the above, although i didn't vote for the election day, i was so proud of myself for bringing and helping my 80+ years old grandmother to do it. we left the house about 7.45am and reached the school' gate within minutes only. tsung wah' secondary school is very near with our house i tell you. its located on the other side of the back road. for those who dunno, laksa pak ngah is located behind the school. many people were already there at the school' gate especially the older generations. they look so excited and happy, including bah (the name we called our grandmother). i know their feelings. what when people like bah never missed to vote ever since the tunku abdul rahman era. unfortunately this grand daughter of hers never try to do it for her whole life ;) alright ler, maybe for the next one onwards insya allah... i did ask bah of her hoped for this day. she said that she do not cares of who gonna win, as she only hopes that our people will live in peace and harmony, thats all. great one there bah, way to go!...

-----

with that, i am so glad that this day also marked this post as my 555th' post in the blog ;) wohooo!!!...

alright then people, its time for me to sign-off for now. we gonna get ready to go to ipoh for my small cousin's 2nd birthday. how time flies so fast ya... baby natalia nadine (or boo as the family and friends called her) has grown to a very cute little girl now. i will see whether i can load her pic in my next post. they are back for holiday from abu dhabi early this week. if you are happened to be in my list on FB, i am sure you bumped into my auntie oyeen sometimes ;) opsss... did i say she's my cousin in that 199th' post hehe... she's actually my auntie lol...

the other day' stories

i reached home at about 5.30pm yesterday from a quick one night kl trip. i am so sorry that i didn't tell some of you. it was just a last minute plan with my sister. she has two tickets for harry connick jr [ehem... yes ween, he is sooo damn adorable in person i tell you ;) ], at dewan philharmonik petronas.

i only managed to meet my beloved sis S for lunch at tgif in pavilion. i am so glad that we met sis, i missed you sooo much! all the best for today's op ya? i know that everything gonna be alright.

i arrived pavilion very early to catch jco donuts for the first time and bought 2 dozens! hehe... ya it was my first time occay? and since i know that there's always long q, that's why i decided to get there early. puas hati! so i called my aunties back at home and asked them to come to the house around 5.30pm. hmm... what a wonderful experienced to enjoy the great donuts together with your loved ones ;) i simply loved it! yummy...

i got sober the night before but everything was alright, nothing to worry, as i know of how to develop myself well :) you know... its always like this when i bumped with some good friends in kl, thats kind of a normal thingy. before that was a really wonderful event for me--

lucien barbarin & i

i was one of the audience at harry connick jr and his big band 'my new orleans' tour. well some of you may not know that i can go with their type of music too. takes megat-- when i told him that i wanna go to the show, he asked me, "mama, you also like harry connick?!!" lol...

it was really a great one! harry is damn good looking for a 40 hehe... he's funny too! he really can make people laughed. he teased a couple who came late (their seats were at the front row) when he was about to sing, "hey you two... why you are so late. you forgot that the show started at 8.30 is it?". hah! ambik you... that was an event by international celebrities. so if you don't know, please bear in mind that they are very punctual with their timing. in fact earlier, harry told everyone already (while pointing his finger to the two empty seats) that, "i am sure that those two people gonna be embarrassed when they come in later during the show".

as you could see, my sister helped me to snap a pic of me with lucien barbarian, a well known trombonist who performs along with harry. lucien was there at the merchandise booth after the show. owh... if only harry was there too lol...

Wednesday, March 05, 2008

at the meantime let me have some relaxing hours at urban retreat. my turn is in about 10 minutes ;)
