When I started the blog, of course I have every intention to be updating my fellow friends and family to all the 'going-ons' around me, however things don't go according to plan. Time I do have, but there are other reasons why I could not spare my time for this.
That being said, I do have a lot happening between then and now. Well, for starters, my family and I spent a week in Gold Coast, Australia, end of November. We rented a 4 bedroom bungalow and rented a van. It was one of the best holidays we had. The kids had a blast at the theme parks while we adults went for a leisure drive or check out the shopping malls or farmers market. We also took a day to drive up to Brisbane. One thing that I was so attracted to is their houses built on the edges of the many lakes or what they term as waters. It is like a network of waterways and all those houses has a small jetty where they parked their boats. Its really lovely...
Then, early January, just like everyone else, the new school year starts. Getting back to the routine of urging my two boys to keep to their schedule. This year, Aiman is in Year 6 and Adam year 4. Both have extra 1/2 hr daily in school. Aiman for UPSR extra classes and Adam for his Tasmik and Bahasa Arab. So, they even has less time in between for lunch and zohor before agama school starts at 2.30pm. Poor fellas. This year I manage to arrange a home tuition for them. It's a three hour session on every Sunday afternoon.
Then, I was also kept busy for Adek's majlis bertunang. It was held on 16th January. Everything went quite well despite the short preparation time. Kakak will be engaged in February. Insyallah, the majlis will be held sometime in May. I will extend my invitation when we have confirmed the exact date. Ooo yes, Norlela came to my house for the bertunang the other day. Thanks Lela. For the rest, not that I don't want to invite, it wasn't a grand one. Just our close relatives and Lela happen to be nearby.
Me and Future BesanSo now, I am kept busy preparing for Kakak's engagement.
