Taski Aisyah

Arifah has finished her pre-school programme, in Taski Saidatina Aisyah, ABIM.

The grand celebration is organised in a big hall in MPOB, Bangi. She took part in a play as a white bird, and it took me quite some while to find a full white attire. Luckily we found one which she agreed fit the criteria, and bought it in a shop at Nilai 1.

┬áThe title of the play is ‘Balasan Gajah yang Jahat”. She enjoyed the play.

Arifah also took part in the nasyid singing, entitled Mari Bersolat and Salam Perpisahan.

Its 7.35 am. The car had a high temperature again (the red lights at the water meter gave warning). I was on the way to the office. I did not panic. I have seen my husband did this so many times. First step, find a good place to stop, with a good source of water. Its 5 km away from R & R Nilai, I drove slowly to the pit stop and parked at the surau. I opened the car bonnet, and left the car to sit at a bench nearby to call my husband and then my students. I might not be able to make the 8 o’clock class. Then I went to the toilet, and sit some more. At 8.30 am, I looked at the radiator and there is no vapour coming out anymore, maybe I should open it. Then I put a lot of water inside the radiator, at least 4 litres, and closed it. After that, I started the engine, and the temperature is maintained at half of the meter. Good. I arrived safely at USIM to start my 9 o’clock class. I am so glad I did not miss 4 hrs of my classes today.

Hi everybody. Thank you for coming, reading and commenting. I do enjoy communicating virtually, because I find talking in real life sometimes easily lead to bad mouthing and complaining etc, which is something that I tried to avoid. So, here I am writing again. One of my students, Azri asked this morning, ‘Where did you get the idea to write all these stuff?’ I replied; ‘What I am writing is my thoughts. It is not difficult to get in touch with your feelings and then write it down. Write whatever is in your mind. It is easy.’ and then he started writing his blog.

Now, back to my stories. We went to Pantai Bagan Lalang in Sepang last weekend, on the way in the bus in front of Bandar Enstek, we saw a lot of traffic police going towards F1 Sepang. We went to accompany and create a rehlah programme for pre tamhidi students from China (all of them are muslim from birth) and we had a good time. Half of them have never been to a beach, and as soon as they stepped out from the bus, they were in the water. I am really greatful that we did not decide to bring them to the East Coast because they might drown!



My girls loves the beach as well. I have no problem at all with Arifah, she just tag along with the Chinese students, but Aidah as usual is on me all of the times, except when I am in the water. We created games, who get the most ‘kepah’, bowling using mineral bottles, building sand castle, army games and running on the beach. We even had to do group discussions in the water! Can you imagine, they wont go into the lecture room for indoor activity and discussions. During the night the activity is eating, because the director of the programme Ust Muhammad Ridhwan Rajendra bin Abdullah had bought and marinated lots of fresh meat, chicken and fish. We had a great BBQ with a lot of baked beans, bread and salad; Madinah style. Ust Ridhwan stayed in Madinah for 10 years before he decided to come back and work here. Anyway, it is nice to know his wife, Pn Yusnita. She teaches Arabic languange too, but to adult students in Subang Jaya. We arrived home, at 4 pm the following day after another swim and play in the open sea.

Now, the next event for me is the Program Penutup Aktiviti Pelajar yesterday. The students called it; Tamdidians Talentime Show. Most of my students performed; English choral speaking, Arabic pentomin, nasheed etc. I took this opportunity to snap a few pictures of Cikgu Fatimah and Cikgu Rahim, my ex-teacher from matrik but now becoming my collegues. I am going to compile all my teachers photo in my FB soon. OK, that is all for now. Good luck my students; I hope you will get good results.

A week’s summary

This week, I did not over stressed myself. On Tuesday, I went to Nilai 3 after work, to buy 12 metres more of our theme fabric / colour for Muzani’s wedding this July. The date is just around the corner, yet no physical preparation were made on the house. I need to initiate something soon especially Mynie’s ‘thing’. Now, I had a nice stroll just for an hour . Have a look at some baju kurung siap, lining ones, which cost only RM20. On Thursday I went to the bank, finished some official monthly business and then went to Pasar Tani. I havent been to one since like 5 years ago. It is quite different now. The stalls are nicer, more colourful with new theme. The products sold were improved from last time. Added ones are, pizza (RM1.50 for slice and RM12 for the whole box). At least two stalls are selling cakes, some frozen kuih, kerepek etc. 2 stalls sells lauk pauk. 2 stalls sell nasi ayam and nasi minyak, 2 stalls sell chicken… come to think of it, there are only two stalls for everything. Every hawker wears the same apron. I bought 2 kuih pau (ayam and daging), a cooked ikan duri for Eddy to break his fast, a very moist chocolate cake and 3 RM1.20 jagung for the girls. Today, ust Ridhwan invites me to be the judge in the students’ Arabic Pentomin, but I rather stay at UKM to do some reading because I am not planning to do any experiment yet. Oh, my student Ihsan gave me a savoury from Mesir, its delicious, thank you!
