3.9.08 (Wed) - Going To School By Bus

If Monday was the orientation day for the kids, today Wednesday is their actual first day of school for the year. Today also saw Along and Ain riding a school bus (or more of a van) to school for the first time in their life.

A helper assisted Along fastening her seatbelt. There are two lady helpers on the van.

In Malaysia, going to school by bus was the thing that Along and Ain had always been dreaming of but we never let them. Now in Dubai they got to experience what they'd always wanted. All this while, their father always sent them to school in the morning and I fetched them from school in the evening. The first time Along and Ain rode a bus was when they were in kindergarten for a trip to Kuala Lumpur and Malacca. They were very excited then.
Since it's fasting month, their school hour will be from 8.30 am to 1.30 pm, as compared to the normal school hour from 8.00 am to 3.30 pm (including after school activity from 2.20 to 3.30 pm).
Reaching home at 3.00 pm today, they brought this back from school...a parent & student handbook. Cheerful faces, Along and Ain related to me that they've started learning, having homework and found more new friends today.
p/s - Believe it or not that's the van that we've got to pay dhs 1xxxx per year for the school bus fee!

Tu la. We pray the best for them. Kira lepas la hajat anak-anak I nak pegi sekolah naik bas. Diorang pun suka tengok citer Geng Bas Sekolah kat Astro Ceria dulu.

Yeah me too!! Tapi yang bestnya door to door delivery. Klu lmbt pagi bas tunggu, balik the assistant hantarkan anak2 I naik lift sampai ke rumah.
