kids photo

actually this photo session was done a day after my final exam (which was a month past) and i was excited for the session. so i brought along my fren Iz to help me with the kids. i was just helping my fren who's her mother running a nursery/kindy at Taman permata. kids of 5-6 years of age are mostly love camera (i guess by the way they follow our instruction) and they even excited to see the outcome once i pushed the shutter...(which this make the session drag from 1 hr to 2 hrs long :D) but they are all nice kid.
so here are my 2 fav photos that i managed to do minor edit (which i jst edited it few minutes ago) using am not a PS fan really...:D

i prefer to capture their candid moment rather than a well-posing

they were asked to act like they're gossiping with each other, but they cant help laughing instead of the acting.

i have more nice (i think nice lah) photos in the same folder but i don't feel like editing all of i have to choose only two for the blog.

p/s:i thought i have no motivation to post a blog today...but accidently found this folder of photos which i never touch since then...:D . hope you like them. please drop me a comment if you have good / creative ideas in taking kids photos...thx in advance! :D

motivation...where are you?

yes, that's what i need right now. thinking of where to start, how to do it and manage time for it. havent started my proposal since end of november. even though target time has been set up and scheduled by i still feel demotivated of doing it now especially it's end of the year! where what most ppl think is 'holiday!'.

and i dont hv ideas of what to post in this blog because i dont have the motivation...

perkataan haram

sbg parent, memang normal that we teach our kids from not saying negative words, simple to say is to curse. words like 'bodo', 'babi', 'celaka', 'shit', and all the f words memang perlu dipantau by parents khuatir jadi kebiasaan budak2 bila membesar.

mya is very alert bila mama or daddy terrlepas cakap with those words...and now i need to 'spell' the curse words instead of saying it directly like "b.o.d.o na juar drebar merce ya ehs!" or twist the words to sth else like "shoot! main mcm s.i.a.l jak!"...
tapi rasanyer now mya can spell some i need to use more new words to replace those.

tetapi, blog kali ni bukan nak crita how to teach kid how to curse in a good jst nak share this story happened last nite. perasan tak buletin tv3 last nite (or was it last 2 nites?) pasal kandang babi kat kpg per tah...tak ingat. so of course the newscaster akan sebut this word 'babi' over n over again....

pemberita: Isu pembinaan kandang babi di kpg x. (reading the title)..
mya: MAAAAAAA!!! dier sebut 'babi' ma!!!
mama: (try hard to focus on her reading & without looking at the girl) aah lah...tak boleh kan mya...eieiee report polis lah mya sbb dier sebut 'b.a.b.i' (of course i spell this fret caught by mya of saying it).
pemberita: (continue reading the news)...bla..bla...'babi'....bla...bla..bla...'babi''babi. (well what do u expect if the title is about 'babi'? )

selagi pemberita sebut tht word...selagi itulah si mya kept bothering me of saying that 'tak boleh sebut 'babi' lah"...aduyaiiii...nasib baik jst for a few minutes...dibuat nyer ader rancangan 360 cerita pasal babi for an hour???? poning kapla den nak dgr!!

i wonder what is happen to the word 'khinzir' ? they dont use such word anymore nowadays?
p/s: i need to find more books about how to educate kids

November 23, 2009

A story worth sharing

I got this forwarded-email from my sister, and it is really touch my heart and was in tears when reading it. Whoever the writer is thank you for the story...-sob-sob...~~so here goes the story which is really worth sharing (as stated in the email's subject).

A story worth sharing


4 years ago, an accident took my beloved away and very often I wonder, how does my wife, who is now in the heavenly realm, feel right now? She must be feeling extremely sad for leaving a husband who is incapable to taking care of the house and the kid. 'cos that is the exact feeling that I have, as I feel that I have failed to provide for the physical and emotional needs of my child, and failed to be the dad and mum for my child.

There was one particular day, when I had an emergency at work. Hence, I had to leave home whilst my child was still sleeping. So thinking that there was still rice leftovers, I hastily cooked an egg and left after informing my sleepy child.


With the double r oles, I am often exhausted at work as well as when I am home. So after a long day, I came home, totally drained of all energy. So with just a brief hug and kiss for my child, I went straight into the room, skipping dinner. However, when I jumped into my bed with intention of just having a well-deserved sleep, all i heard and felt was broken porcelain and warm liquid! I flipped open my blanket, and there lies the source of the 'problem'... a broken bowl with instant noodles and a mess on the bedsheet and blanket!

Boy, was I mad! I was so furious that I took a clothes hanger, charged straight at my child who was happily playing with his toy, and give him a good spanking! He merely cried but not asking for mercy, except a short explanation:

兒子告訴我說:「飯鍋裡的飯早上已經吃完了,晚餐在幼稚園吃了,但是到了晚上,爸爸還不回來,我就在櫥櫃的抽屜裡找到了泡麵。可是我想 到爸爸說不能亂動瓦斯爐,所以我就打開洗澡的水龍頭,用熱水泡了泡麵,一個自己吃,另一個想留給爸爸吃。因為怕泡麵涼掉,所以我就把它放在棉被裡,等你回來。可是因為我正在玩向朋友借來的玩具,所以忘了跟爸爸講。」

"Dad, I was hungry and there wasn't anymore leftover rice. But you were not back yet, hence I wanted to cook some instant noodles. But I remembered you reminding me not to touch or use the gas stove without any adults around, hence I turned on the shower and used the hot water from the bathroom to cook the noodles. One is for you and the other is for me. However, I was afraid that the noodles will turn cold, so I hid it under the blanket to keep it warm till you return. But I forgot to remind you 'cos I was playing with my toys...I am sorry Dad..."

我不想讓兒子看到我在流淚,所以衝到? ~手間,將水龍頭打開,大聲地哭。過了一陣子之後,我打起精神來,一面哄著兒子,一面也在他屁股上擦藥,讓他上床睡覺。當我清理好泡麵弄髒的床單和棉被後,打開兒子的房門一看,發現他仍舊發出哭泣聲,手裡還拿著媽媽的照片。我把頭靠在房門站了許久,看著這一幕。

At that moment, tears were starting to run down my cheeks...but I didn't want my son to see his dad crying so I dashed into the bathroom and cried with the shower head on to mask my cries. After that episode, I went towards my son to give him a tight hug and applied medication on him, while coaxing him to sleep. Then, it was time to clear up the mess on the bed. When everything was done and well past midnight, I passed my son's room, and saw that he was still crying, not from the pain on his little buttock, but from looking at the photograph of his beloved mummy.

自從在一年前發生這件事之後,我為了扮演好媽 媽的角色,更加用心地去照顧他。現在兒子快七歲了,不久後就要從幼稚園畢業,進入國小讀書。慶幸的是,兒子在這段時間毫無陰影,很開朗地成長

A year has passed since the episode, I have tried, in this period, to focus on giving him both the love of his dad and mum, and to attend to most of his needs. And soon, he is turning seven, and will be graduating from kindergarten. Fortunately, the incident did not leave a lasting impression on his childhood memories and he is still happily growing up.


However, not so long ago, I hit my boy again, with much regret. This time, his kindergarten teacher called, informing me of my son's absence from school. I took off early from work and went home, expecting him to explain. But he wasn't to be found, so I went around our house, calling out his name and eventually found him outside a stationery shop, happily playing computer games. I was fuming, brought him home and whack the hell out of him. He did not retaliate, except to say, 'I am sorry, Dad'. But after much probing, I realized that it was a 'Talent Show' organized by his school and the invite is for every student's mummy. And that was the reason for his absence as he has no mummy.....


Few days after the caning, my son came home to tell me, the kindergarten has recently taught him how to read and write. Since then, he has kept to himself and stayed in his room to practise his writing, which I am sure, would make my wife proud, if she was still around. 'cos he makes me proud too!

時間很快,又過了一年,到了冬天,街頭上都在播放著聖誕節的歌曲,我的兒子卻又闖了一個禍。我正要下班 的時候,接到一通社區郵局的電話,說我兒子把一綑沒有寫地址的信,惡作劇? a放在郵筒裡。每年到了年底,正是郵局最忙碌的時候,所以這對他們造成很大的困擾。雖然我已決定不再打孩子,但在急忙趕回家後,叫了兒子來,我又忍不住痛打他一頓。兒子這一次只是說他做錯了,卻沒有講出任何理由。我把他推到一個角落,不管了,自個兒跑到郵局領回那一綑惡作劇的信。我把信丟到他眼前說:「為什麼要這樣惡作劇?」兒子哭著回答說:「這些信是我要寄給媽媽的。」

Time passes by very quickly, and soon another year has passed. It's winter, and its Christmas time. Everywhere the christmas spirit is in every passer-by...Christmas carols and frantic shoppers....but alas, my son got into another trouble. When I was about to knock off from the day's work, the post office called. Due to the peak season, the post master was also on an edgy mood. He called to tell me that my son has attempted to post several letters with no addressee. Although I did make a promise never to hit my son again, I couldn't help but to hit him as I feel that this child of mine is really beyond control. Once again, as before, he apologized, ' I'm sorry, Dad' and no additional reason to explain. I pushed him towards a corner, went to the post office to collect the letters with no addressee and came home, and angrily questioned my son on his prank, during this time of the year.

His answer, amidst his sobbing, was : The letters were for Mummy.


My eyes grew teary, but I tried to control my emotions and continued to ask him: " But why did u post so many letters, at one time?" My son's reply was: " I have been writing to mummy for a long time, but each time I reach out for the post box, it was too high for me, hence I was not able to post the letters. But recently, when I went back to the postbox, I could reach it and I sent it all at once..."


After hearing this, I was lost. Lost at not knowing what to do, what to say....

I told my son, " Son, mummy is in the heavenly kingdom, so in future, if you have anything to tell her, just burn the letter and it will reach mummy. My son, on hearing this, was much pacified and calm, and soon after, he was sleeping soundly. On promising that I will burn the letters on his behalf, I brought the letters outside, but couldnt help opening the letter before they turn to ash.


And one of the letters broke my heart....

我很想念你!媽媽,今天在幼稚園有才藝表演,但是因為我沒有媽媽,所以沒有去參加,我也沒有告訴爸爸,怕爸爸會想念媽媽。爸爸到處去找我,但我為了讓爸爸看到我很開心的樣子,所以故意坐在 電動玩具面前,雖然爸爸罵我,但是我到最後也沒有告訴他原因。媽媽,我? 捖ㄛ搢鴘赤谷]為想念媽媽而哭泣,我想爸爸也跟我一樣,很想念媽媽吧!但是,媽,我現在已經記不清楚你的臉。媽媽,請你讓我在夢中,再一次能夠看到你的臉,好嗎?聽說把想念的人的照片放在懷裡睡覺,就會夢到那個人。可是,媽媽,為什麼你沒有出現在我的夢裡呢?」

Dear Mummy,

I miss you so much! Today, there was a 'Talent Show' in school, and the school invited all mothers for the show. But you are not around, so I did not want to participate as well. I did not tell Dad about it as I was afraid that Dad would start to cry and miss you all over again. Dad went around looking for me, but in order to hide my sadness, I sat in front of the computer and started playing games at one of the shops. Dad was furious, and he couldnt help it but scolded and hit me, but I did not tell him the real reason. Mummy, everyday I see Dad missing you and whenever he think of you, he is so sad and often hide and cry in his room. I think we both miss you very very much. Too much for our own good I think. But Mummy, I am starting to forget your face. Can you please appear in my dreams so that I can see your face and remember you? I heard that if you fall asleep with the photograph of the person whom you miss, you will see the person in your dreams. But mummy, why havent you appear?


After reading the letter, I cant stop sobbing. 'cos I can never replace the irreplaceable gap left behind by my wife....



For the females with children:

Don't do so much overtime. If you cannot finish the work, it must be some kind of problems within the company, and it is not your sole problem. Feedback to your boss. Endless overtime may not necessary be the answer to the problem. Take care of your health so that you can treasure and take care of yo ur little precious.


一定要想一想,有沒有辦法做到客人非我們不行,我們的差異化在哪裡,我們是否真的懂 客人的心,這比拼命喝酒,還重要,請務必要照顧自己的身體,才可以好好疼? p的小寶貝和你的愛人。

For the married men:

Drink less, smoke less, cos nothing can replace your good health, not even business nor clients.

Try thinking this way, are you able to work till your clients are totally dependent on you? or your boss is totally dependent on you? In this society, no one is indispensable.

Take care of your health, so that you can take care of your little precious and your loved ones.


For those singles out there:

Beauty lies in loving yourself first.

With confidence and loving yourself, you will see the beauty in other things around you. You will be able to work better and happier. Don't let your health be affected by your work or your boss, so nothing matters more than your well being.
美其實是從愛自己的身體開始 --(蔣勳,身體美學)。
無入而不自得 -- (孔子)。

/你們一定要很自在,工作才能做的好,如果工作讓你/ 妳們的心情做的很辛苦,代表的是我們的公司不夠聰明,那也是公司什麼地方不對了,要勇敢的說出來,不要讓不聰明的工作與老闆,傷害了妳/你們的身體。

Hi, am trying to post this single line posting via mobile.

September 2, 2009


Yesterday she refused to go to school -reason - "i hurt my thumb". and yes she hurt her thumb while playing at Hartz excuse was accepted. She stayed at home the whole day n i didnt send her to her school & her babysitter's house. and as usual i let her do whatever 'mess' she wanted to do as long as it's in her room. So i can do my own 'work' - online laaa what else.

I thought i can have my own peace because she seem so busy for the first 1 hour. after that she kept going in & out of her room jst to get my attention like -
- 'ma i want dugro & nani (refer to her milk & warmwater)', - this is not supposed to happen 1 hour of after her 1st milk shot.
-'ma, i want to sheeshee (pee) - ok..i accept this one..
-'ma, can u plz help me i want to watch 'koya' - refer to my Korea drama DVD "My sassy girl" - yes she likes this drama a lot ok!
-'maaaaaaaa, come here plzzzzzzzzzzzzzz' - i hate this part...she called me to come to her room jst to help her to reach an-inch-away-drawing book??!!! urghhh....i got pissed off (not much lah as she jst 4years old maa) and i told her not to disturb me for such thing like that...
and she went like "hehhehe....ok boss! i love u ma!" - and there i sat back & helpless....-sigh-
- and guess it was not jst like that...

SO i asked her to bring her stuff outside near my 'working place' and do her stuff next to me. and she was sooo happy ..why? because she got BIGGER PLACE TO MESS UP!! long as i dont have to walk in & out her room!
since she loves to draw i gave her few pieces of my A4 papers and asked her to draw ME! which i guess that will let her to sit there drawing for quite a long time (and to keep her mouth shut as well hehe). AGAIN, i was wrong and she said "ma, i'm done! how to spell ur name?" Without looking at her i jst spell M.A.M.A and said "ok, if u done, now draw daddy" and happily she sat back and started drawing. few minutes later...."ma!, i'm done again! how to spell daddy?? "really? ok...that's fast lah mya...wowww ok...daddy = d.a.d.d.y"..(expressing my amaze face to her?which i think she loves tht most hahaha)..."hurm...then draw your baby janice" refer to her baby doll...and there she sat drawing quietly again and i didnt look at all the drawing as she stuck them onto her crayola whiteboard...
few moments later..."OK!!! done!! how to spell baby?" and then she wrote 'baby' somewhere on the drawing....andddd....owwhh i love this part when she said "maa, close your eyes" so i closed my eyes waiting for her to say...."SUR - PLAISE!!!! (surprise!)"

copyright by Mya

So, this is more or less - things that happen in my daily life if she was at home...guess i need to help her to polish & encourage her more toward real drawing & soon - painting. :D Maybe i'll bring her & her drawing kit to the zoo next time.
I wonder how will the elephant looks like in her drawing??? (hahaha cant help laughing evil-ly)

I love seeing my lil gurl singing this song. Owh only God knows how much she lovesss watching Hannah Montana the movie over & over again. and of course i do enjoy watching the movie with her. i hope Hannah's high energetic spirit will also flowing to my girl as she's growing up.
And so both of us really enjoy singing this song together 'The Climb' by Miley Cyrus

I can almost see it
That dream I'm dreaming but
There's a voice inside my head sayin,
You'll never reach it,
Every step I'm taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking but I
Got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high

There's always going to be another mountain
I'm always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain't about how fast I get there,
Ain't about what?s waiting on the other side
It's the climb

The struggles I'm facing,
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes they knock me down but
No I'm not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
And I,
I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on, cause

There's always going to be another mountain
I'm always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I'm going to have to lose,
Ain't about how fast I get there,
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

There's always going to be another mountain
I'm always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain't about how fast I get there,
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

Keep on moving
Keep climbing
Keep the faith baby
It's all about
It's all about
The climb
Keep the faith
Keep your faith


It's a very shocked news but it's not possible..God has all the fate, and we can jst pray for the very good fate to happen to us. I felt so glad to have such news that a kidnapped girl was found after 18 years!! but it's a very sad thing to know that she was grew up in a backyard tent and was raped and had 2 children.

Let's us pray & hope that our missing kids (Sharlini & other cases) will be found safe & sound.Amin.

I love my new mug bought some times last week. not to say that i support the brand which might lead ppl to say 'dont support Israel product' but the interest of collecting those customized mugs (n pray that the money i paid will not go to whatever association related with Israel's rejim). Plus i'll get a discount of RM2 for any beverage if i use my own mug at any of Starbucks. but all-in-all using mug can help in keeping our earth GREEN!

anyway, last nite i done with my first assignment presentation of my Digital Library class -woohooo!!!-. I thought i will present it next week, luckily i check the e-learning and jst realised that i have the possibility of presenting it last nite, so i got working on it from the morning till 5.30pm! and that makes me came late to class plus driving thru a massive traffic jam due to heavy rain?? i thought i can reach my faculty in 20 minutes as of tht time there's no sign of bad weather before i drive out frm the apartment. but ya it's all God will n i really have to go thru with it and pray that nothing bad will happen as i cant hardly see the road while driving....pretty bad huh...and driving 20-30km/h is not really gonna get me to the faculty in 20minutes!!! and i finally safely reach there by 6.40pm for my 6pm class. but luckily my classmate said the lecturer only started the class about 6.20pm. hope i'm not missing so much in that 20minutes late.

So what is the thing tht makes me happy today? hehe...please see my second para, line 1. heheh jst kid..that is one of it...but the other is...i've reconnected to my other long lost friend last week- my x-schoolmate, x-classmate in matrix, x-unimate!! :D

Alhamdullilah syukur to Allah SWT for giving me another Ramadhan and hopefully can celebrate Syawal with my family in a His blessful and harmony...InsyaAllah..
today is the 3rd day the M'sia Mulims perform their fasting i'badah and Alhamdullilah the haze is getting lesser and H1N1 is still undercontrol eventhough the news announced it was another H1N1 death making it a total of 69 death in Msia (as of today 9am).

Ramadan -a month of obligatory daily fasting in Islam is the ninth month in the Islamic lunar calendar. Daily fasts begin at dawn and end with sunset. Special nightly prayers called, Taraweeh prayers are held. The entire Quran is recited in these prayers in Mosques all around the world. This month provides an opportunity for Muslims to get closer to God. This is a month when a Muslim should try to:
bulletSee not what displeases Allah
bulletSpeak no evil
bulletHear no evil
bulletDo no evil
Look to Allah with fear and hope

"O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become God-fearing." (The Quran, 2:183) (Source:

Semoga Allah menerima amal ibadah kita dibulan Ramadhan ini dan juga diringankan beban derita saudara Islam kita yg menjadi mangsa perang di luar sana...Amin..

This picture was the last picture taken of our complete family, we've been losing our beloved brother (sitting front with purple Baju Melayu) for 2 years now. May Allah bless his soul..Al-Fatihah...

p/s: to my frens, beringat-ingatlah bila berbelanja di Bazaar Ramadhan...elakkan pembaziran...:D Selamat Berpuasa!

Mya came to me once i woke up from my afternoon nap and showed me this drawing by her:
i scrutinized it while looking at a toy next to her..which is famously known by almost all kids in this world! Not too fast with my assumption as i never knew spongebob has a kid or vice versa i asked her few questions:

me: Nice one! who's that?
Mya: Mama & mya laaa...

me: ic...which one is mama & which one mya?
Mya: mama pegang bunga, mya budak kecik..(momma with the flower & mya the small one)

me: Why mama ada bunga? (why momma has a flower with me? )
Mya: Daddy kasi la! (Daddy gave it to u!) --> i remember last time i got flower from my hubby was during my convocation day..:P

last question:
me: why we are in square shape?
Mya: sbb mcm spongebobb.... (so we're look like a-spongebob?)

mya's sketch - 10th Aug, 2009 - 4yrs 7mths
