Perkeso Vs. Prihatin

As a new staff in Prudential, I am required to submit my payroll details including my Socso No. I didn't keep it anywhere so last resort, called up the hotline. And here how it went ...

Perkeso : Hello Selamat Tengah Hari…

Me : Hello, macam mana cara kalau saya nak tahu no. socso …

Perkeso : Recorded song (Perkeso prihatin, pekerja gembira, Perkeso prihatin, majikan gembira…. ……) (after almost 2 minutes) Hello, Selamat Tengah Hari, boleh saya bantu?

Me : Yer, boleh saya dapatkan no. soc….

Perkeso : Recorded song (Perkeso prihatin, pekerja gembira,
Perkeso prihatin, majikan gembira…. ………) (after almost 5 minutes, Line disconnected)

And they claimed they are somewhat ‘Prihatin

After 3 attempts managed to get through. As confirmed by them, Perkeso number is actualy our own IC number. I just knew that...huhuhu

Aina's Art Attack!

Last Friday the kindergarten was having a feast in celebration of Teachers Day! So that Thursday evening, I helped Aina preparing something to present to the teachers, just as a token of appreciation for all their hard works.

I decided to have a go with a quilling technique since it doesn't need so many stuffs just a few coloured paper, double sided tape, Marker and a Pen.

Aina tightly rolling the strip around the handle, from one end to the other. She was really in good in this.

After done all the rollings, I then helped making a flower with it and glued them to the paper. Aina started writing the message.

Writing a signature at the bottom

Then she drew dots at the end of all the letters just to make it more fancy. Go Dotty Aina!!

Re-Write the sentence with nice colourful marker

I even put a used picture frame at the back so it stands

Wallah...the result was brilliant!!
So that Friday Morning I prepared some fried bihun for the feast and Aina handed over the gift to one of the teacher. The teacher said "Wah, cantiknyer Aina buat ker Mama buat?"....She looked at me and said "Sama sama" ...
To all teachers out there "HAPPY TEACHERS DAY!!"

Mothers Day Celebration 09

Date : 10th May 2009 (Mothers Day)
Venue : Parents’ house


We had secretly planned for this year’s Mothers Day celebration. Me and all my siblings. Gathered that Sunday Morning at my parents’ house complete with foods. We told Mom and Dad that the gathering was for Balqis (my niece) 2nd Birthday Celebration. Therefore we freely prepared what ever necessary without having them suspecting anything. Hehehe!

The event started at about 10.30 AM after confirming the absence of my siblings. I as the elders presented mom our special token of love and appreciation. As soon as mom saw it, she broke down in tears. It quickly caught me too. I put down the plaque and gave her hugs and kisses followed by the rest of my brothers and sisters. It was so tears dropping and heart touching moments that will always be long remembered and cherished. My mom got so deeply touched for she had never seen it coming.

Presenting the Plaque to mom

Hugs n kisses

Mom still sobbing with tears

Menu of the day :

1. Nasi Lemak

2. Macaroni Bakar

a. Seafood

b. Beef

3. Fried Bee Hoon

4. Fruits and Ice Cream for desserts

It should be more but sadly three of my siblings could not make it. They had unforeseen family matters. So only left me as the elders huhuhu…

The Plaque


“Happy Mother’s Day, from your ever loving children”

How hard it is to start with a word Thank You,

for it is beyond Thank You that we wish you to see,

from day one we couldn’t have done it without you,

for you’ve brought us up unconditionally.

Forgive us at giving birth, from all the suffering and pain,

we vow, god given……. for all of that will never ever come again.

Sometimes we wonder how you did it, but then of course there’s dad. Forgive us for being silly children, for sometimes we’ve made you mad.

We love you for the moment we’ve past asleep on your lap and you are always there

to guide us through,

with our very first steps..

Love the moment that you have spent, feeding us food with your very hand,

you’ve nursed us when we’re sick and made sure we’re well again.

For this memory will never fade and will never be forgotten.

Mom, be assured all this, are being passed down to your grandchildren.

Mom, you’ve given us protection, please do give us your blessings..

For us it became our motivation, to survive and carry on living.

Your love to us is our virtue, you’ve been created for a reason.

May Allah always love you, like you always love your children.

After the sobbing and wiping tears session were done, we continued with the second agenda of the day. Our niece 2nd Birthday Celebration.

Sweet Memories with Mom
There are so many great memories that I would love to share but if I do, Blogspot would be out of disk space!. Anyway, there is this one that is forever fresh in my mind.
I was a 4 year old toddler at that time and my late great grand mother was looking after me while mom out working. Somehow I fell down in some drain and injured myself. Actually it was not that bad, just a few cuts and bruisers on my knees. Still managed to walk though. I remembered that time that I got so scared of getting hurt more if I move my legs. I thought I was gonna die if I walk. So my late great grandmother carried me home. I stayed in bed the whole day not daring to move my legs even an inch.
Until mom got home that evening. Mom persuaded me to get up and walk but I didn’t wanna. I remembered mom tried so many things to lure me out from the bed. Eventually I agreed to get up after Mom said that she wanted to go out sight seeing and I will be left alone. So with much careful, I moved my legs and to my surprise it didn’t hurt at all, just felt a bit numb. Mom was right all along, I didn’t die. We went out that evening and I think we passed along some fun fare and for the first time I got to see a live Elephant in front of my eyes.

So there it was. A little episode of me and mom. I believe everyone must have these kind of small memories that would never fade away throughout your whole life. My advise, keep it.

Me and Mom (1981)

To my beloved mom,
There is no velvet so soft as your lap, no rose as lovely as your smile,
no path so flowery as that imprinted with your footsteps
Your arms were always open when I needed a hug.
Your heart understood when I needed a friend.
Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson.
Your strength and love has guided me and gave me wings to fly.
Love you so much!
My first ever Mothers Day Card from my beloved daughter

Aina's 5th Birthday Celebration - Part 2

Date : 6th May 2009
Venue : Taska Naluri Bestari

Last Wednesday, the kindergarten held a Birthday Party to celebrate those children who's birthday falls in April. So it's Aina's turn! Yippie!

The birthday kids
Normally they would have it in the Kota Damansara McDonald outlet, but because this time the number of birthday girls and boys were quite many so they decided to have a 'Take Out Party' instead, meaning Mc Donald came over and cheer the kids.
I guess Aina still couldn't figure out who was this big giant standing behind her.

6th Anniversary

Date : 17th April 2009

Venue : Quality Hotel Shah Alam

This year we decided to celebrate our anniversary a slightly different way. Friday afternoon, checked in to hotel. Spent our quality time together. Late evening, fetched the children and spent the night. No vacationing this year but it did bring the true meaning of honeymoon to me!

No one can know what the outcome of spending years together will be.

Being happy together is a gift,

And enduring love is the key.

Another year to create precious memories together.

Another year to discover new things to enjoy about each other.

Another year to builda life rich in love and laughter.

Another year to strengthen a marriage that defines "forever."
