Still in the mood for honeymoon

Perhentian Island…here we come!
Last few years, I went there alone because I fell in love with the underwater scenery. But this time…not only that I come with the love of my life…but also with a baby in my tummy!

Being 5-month pregnant does not stop me from doing what I love. I just imagine as if I am showing the amazing underwater panorama to the little munchkin in my tummy.

Kamal, being a great diver...always makes sure that we see what we were supposed to see. The baby shark, turtle, and not to forget, Nemo in our hands! hehehe.

I could see Sham enjoying himself very much, that he was drifted away by the current and was reluctant to get onto the boat when time was up.

When we did not snorkel, we just rest on the beach. The funny thing is -the Caucasians would deliberately sunbathe under the sun, while the Asians would sneak under the shadows of trees. Hahaha! We have enough melanin, mate!

Guess... whose tummy is this? Mine or Sham's? :P

I'd like to say, this is the best honeymoon I ever had. It's a bit late...but why not? It was delayed because of the season, not that I didn't wanna come here earlier.
To Kamal, thanks a lot for the hospitality... and for everything. (He even climbed the coconut tree, to get me a young coconut). You are such a great friend!

Cikgu cikgu on the hall (of fame)...who is the fav of 'em all?

It must feel good to receive a text msg (or a call, or a card) from students who appreciate and remember us as teachers/lecturers/educators.

I myself remember with special warmth those teachers with whom I had encountered of the piquant kind. Those days, there were cikgus with stern voice and wicked-looking wooden ruler (the standard visual aids then) contrasted intriguingly with their smiling eyes.

My fav teachers are my English teachers in the primary school (Mr. P.Panjanathan and Miss Jenny Ooi Joo Lin).

Cikgu Panja a.k.a Sir has a strict character, with his serious one dares to make fun in his class or even when bumping into him. Even so, he always called me for nursery rhyme recital, or to show a role model to the other students. Hahaha!

Teacher Ooi on the other hand, is a friendly one. I remember she lent me her Girl Guide uniform for the 'An Honest Sampan Man' play. Despite her slim figure, the uniform was still baggy for a 12-year-old me!

Oh my... It'd be nice to meet them again after 15 years. I owe them a lot for providing me good English basics and seeing the potential in me. Am not sure of their whereabouts though.

Unfortunately, when 16th May comes, students only remember teachers. They don't think that lecturers are supposed to be celebrated too.

Mother's Day for the mama-to-be

It’s Mother’s Day!

We went out to Giant… and Sham bought me a book on Amalan Ibu Mengandung- by Ustazah Siti Noor Bahyah Mahamood as a gift.

It's very useful and informative!
