15.9.08 (Monday) - You Deserve It...

1) As usual, everytime the kids come home from school, they must relate to me what happens in school. Along told me about her French and Computer classes. Ain, smiling to show her happy face, told me she has been appointed as 'a helper'. When I asked her what that means, is it a class monitor? She said no. 'A helper' is someone in the class who has been rewarded 5 . The stars are given to those who are obedient in class, do not make noise, finish all the work teacher gives and can give the most correct answers for all the exercises given. 'A helper' is also given a privilege to assist other classmates if they have problems doing the exercises given.

So today, her Canadian teacher, Miss Claire, has rewarded her with the 5 . Her glowing face showed that she was so much flattered that she was the second (after a German boy) in the class of 25 students who has been given the stars. To us adults, it's probably just the stars, but to a seven-year-old girl, it is really something to boost up her motivation to go to school and learn. Right away, I gave her the hugs and a kiss and told her to inform her father when he comes back from Tehran tonight.

2) Today my sis-in-law's blog is featured in the NST on the Tech&U section. Read it here. She's been blogging since 2006 and she writes on life, family, career and most of all running. She was once overweight some time in 2003. You can check here to find out how running can make her as slim and young-looking as ever, and at the same time an optimistic person. She enjoys writing and she just has the flair of language.

p/s - We all kat negara pasir berdengung ni tumpang berbangga dari jauh.

Wah Ain; congrats and well done. Ni auntie tambah lagi satu STAR. Mesti Ain rasa elated n seminggu ni sengih aje, excited and overwhelmed. It proves that anak2 Malaysian dont have problems braving the hurdles dok kat mana2 pun. Bravo Malaysian kids.

Yup, I pernah baca kakk Haza nyer blog... interesting

Danash, Ravishing Red is a publisher ke writer? I have been comissioned to author my cake book naza but it has been a struggle, since you are not really an expert in this field. In the process...

Ain, goooood girl. Show to the world what Malaysian girls are capable of. Pas ni beat the Greman boy tu plak k.

Tq. Hopefully a good start for her. Klu ikut mak jadi cikgu je...eh jadi cikgu ok apa?? :) In reality, all parents hope that their kids will always be much much better than them, right.

domestic engineer said...

Ya la Doll, lama dah you tak menjenguk...macam-macam adaa. Sampaikan I ngan Jeda dah turn out to be 'businesswomen' tu pun you tak tau ni...ish rugi he he...wpun businesswomen untuk beberapa jam je.

Takpa Doll, kekadang shopping last minute lagi seronok, orang berpusu2 dgn lagu raya berkumandang. I'm gonna miss this!

domestic engineer said...

Tq Auntie Jeda, bagi STAR je...duit raya takda?? Iman pun apa kurangnya...nampak cerdik je, more matured than her age. Sama-sama la we pray the best for our kids!

domestic engineer said...

Ha apa lagi Wiz...go for it!! You have all our support. Nak proofreader...well, our pleasure. Choose je nak proofreader kat Dubai, kat Msia, anytime insyaAllah...hi hi.

Alhamdulillah Wiz. I pun mula2 rasa biasa je dia dapat bintang macam kat KG or Drjh 1 kat Msia. But when you all said, she's actually representing Malaysians, yes it's true kan.
