New Work & New School

As most of people knows, I am with new job currently, doing almost the same thing with my previous company, doing business development for the company. My hubby never understand my work nature. He he.. and with new work, I becoming more busier than ever. Kind a miss my old place. I had good time there.


And Payo also had to changed to new school. Sugar coated reason : Because near by to my house, and cheaper. Uncovered sugar coated : I am not satisfied with current pre-school. Yup! its a well known, famous for their Islamic Montessori concept. I don't really know what Payo has learned so far, its seems nothing. Perhaps on the shhuuuh part to ask me quite, and recite al Fatihah half way (always start with Malikiyaumiiddi)... Other than that? Nothing. When I asked the teacher, their response 'I don't know Puan, he always like that, don't mixed around, and don't response to my question' . He is the introvert type, the most shy person in school I presumed. He needs some encouragement to talk, and socialise. And it does not happen there. I had encounter such event that makes me thinking twice, of sending Payo there. The last few event confirms my decision.

1. On the Concert day.
We reached there around 1pm plus. They provide lunch to the parents, and I thought of feeding Payo with the Nasi and Chicken I dont know what style. But the teacher keep insisted to bring Payo to the group, since they about to start, so i ended up send him at the back stage. He was crying not allow me to go, and I have to be there with him.

During that occasion, I saw this lady, heavily pregnant, looks so annoyed with the kids' noise and asked them to be quite with the most fierce face. She didn't notice me since I am wearing the same color of jubah dress like the teachers. The only different color on hijab. After sometimes I left him at the back stage, hoping that he will be fine.

After the concert, he saw me and hugs me tightly, and crying so hard, as well as angry with me because I leave him there. Then he told me he is so hungry!. He did not eat anything during the concert . From 1pm till 4.30, not even a single water. Damn it. I asked the teacher where is the food, and they pointed me at the Gardenia Bread and Mineral water, and Payo being him, don't dare to take the food, if no one tell him or entertain him. He then pointed at the bread and eat them so badly. I was crying like hell, feels so guilty and mad at the same time. Why the teacher don't feed this children, and you guys feed them with gardenia bread and mineral water for lunch? are you kidding me? They asked money for the concert, with additional pay for extra seats!And can't even afford to give proper meal to the Children? Come on.

2. Final Year Review
Payo had trauma so bad because of the concert, and he don't even want to go school after that. Crying like hell. Then I decided to join their school holidays activities, with extra money to pay. They passed me all the so called árt work' that Payo did, which I doubt it was His, coz the work still looks too neat for 4 year old. Come on guys. Parents are not that stupid. I ask about his writing, cause I don't see anything. And his class teacher promised to have 1 on 1 session with him during school break. I just waited for that, nothing happened.

 I have sense Payo became more confused with what he have learned at  that school. Before he joined the school, he knows A to Z, numbers, and if u jumble it, But now he seems to have doubt, like he is not sure anymore.

It has been 1 and 1/2 month with new school. So far he seems excited. Everytime you wake him up for school, not much tantrum. Last time, if I mentioned the word 'SCHOOL' he will cry, tak nak'  school , or 'no school'. That is his chant every morning. Stress mak. Now,  Ókay Ammi'. So excited. Telling me stories. Its not famous, or franchise or anything like that. But I feel satisified so far, hope it will last.


I am ready Ammi! Peace!

Mengintai dari jauh.. First day. Teriak gak dia.. huhu..

Happy New Year 2017.

Day 18 2017.

It has been mix feeling leaving the year 2016. A lot of things had happened, the ups and down, the good and bad. THe great and not so great things.

But I have learned a lot throughout the journey, and first important lesson I have learned :

1. Only you should define yourself, not other people
Rather than worries about what people think about you, you should just think about your own feelings. Don't care about what other thinks about you. Even if it came from your family. If they don't support you or condemned the choice you made just because they feel that should be the way, as long as things are good according to Islam or law, its your choice. Just because you think the ideal of marriage is to be with your spouse 24-7, doesn't mean it suits to others, or if the person is single, is her/his choice to be sing Respect other people choice. Not condemn . Kapish?


2.  Don't judge.
When you starts to judge, you start to feel that you are way better than others. Stop doing that. We are no better than other people.
Stay humble, grounded. Sometimes a simple smile or Hi to Pak Guard also will make your day.

Don't Gossip, Jaga Aib
Don't simply share things that you are not too sure how thruthful is the source. And viral it, try to check the source. Zaman fitnah ni kena byk jaga2.

3. Think of  doing more Kindness & Goodness
Always think of ways of doing good. I always inspired from these people, Syed Azmi, Mr Kuan, Raja Shamri, to name a few, on their dedication to serve the community, by giving more of themself to other. Charity work, volunteerism. I need to do more of this.

Hope this will be applied in this 2017.

Cuti-cuti Sabah Bah!

Just came back from Sabah..

It has been a pleasant journey for us. Since I have free time, like 1 week free,and I have been wanting to have some small vacation, before I start with my new work. We have planned for few places , but since hubby got some issue with visa, we decided to travel within Malaysia, and decided to go to Sabah since none of us have been there. Its kind a last min deal. But Alhamdulillah, all went well.

Dah sampai...

We reached KK at 12.30, and grab our rental car at the KK airport. It is kind a good deal, but since we did not arrange it earlier, we did not manage to get Myvi. But still, they give us a good disc. Then for next 3 days, we will be in Kundasang Sabah. When we reached there, they have this package 5 in 1 ticket. So, bought for me and hubby , RM 39 each, and free for Payo (4yo and below is free)
The 5 in 1 deal




The journey all superb. But I still have some few regrets, which is :
1. Should extend it to another night, it feels so rushing. Maybe 1 night spend at KK town, and enjoyed their seafood. And jalan- jalan there.
2. Yeah, the seafood!!! I have no chance to try. Mana tau the main seafood area tu kat Dataran Todak, we passed  that area, tapi tak berhenti pon. Dah sampai hotel baru tahu. And going back its like 2 hours going and 2 hours coming back. So lupakan.Hu hu hu... Sedih.
3. Should bring the stroller for my 'anak bujang' Esp kat airport. The KLIA 2 airport  besar kot.. and gate hujung dunia.. 'Pengsan weh nak dukung dia', when he fall asleep and expect us to carry him all around.

Other than that.. takde apa kot.. It was all great.


It was cold, and we reached there when the sun almost about to set. We stopped at the Upside Down House first, and Chantek Gallery before that.
Control Macho

Beria nak angkat..




Harus la lambat sampai Kundasang. So we are damn hungry, my package includes dinner, but since we can't wait for dinner, we had our late lunch almost dinner at the town. The smells of smokey chicken wings attract us to the shop. And Oh God, we finished all 20 chicken wings, with nasi goreng and telur dadar, and terasa nikmat eating in cold weather.
Habis kena lahap..food lain x smpt nak snap..kelaparan

Dah dapat energy..mmg la..

Mengada..
 When we reach Kundasang. the view  Masha Allah.. Subhanallah.. memang breathtaking. Even you have capture 100 of pics but nothing beats the view from your own eyes. Masha Allah... View from our stay pon dah rasa magnificient. Our resort is facing the mount Kinabalu itself. Just imagine.
We continue enjoying the weather and scenery, to our hotel. And notice here its start getting dark by 6pm. And even day also starts early. Spend the time enjoying the view from our stay Pine Kinabalu Resort before we starts our tour.


Some of the pics..
Yup.. best pagi2 lepak minum teh.

From the balcony..

Testing..









Great view right guys?






We went to places like Sabah Tea, with free tour to the tea factory, but no picture allowed in the factory.

Moody..


Slowly taking his vibe..

Cepat la Ammi..

Tea plantation..nice

Hi Uolsss




Okay..I had great time..



And then went to the fish spa at Tagal Luanti River. Friends told me its kind a dangerous to try it for health reason. The thing is, I am too penggeli to put my feet with all fishes by the river. They are not even biting, lalu je dah terlompat-lompat. Tak sempat nak gigit.. hahahaha.. My hubby really tried and keep ouch ouch. Mana la anak bini dia tak takut.. Hahaha.. But I think the fish there all very manja and jinak. (Looks jinak but tak dapat pon nak tangkap pon).



Some of the pic
Dia punya takut.. hahahahaha

Yup.. I am soo geli...

Muka tahan nk menjerit..

He got bittern this time ..hahahahha


Pas rendam kaki terus kebulur..nampak cempedak goreng..apa lg


Next stop, Cattle Dairy Farm. it is very near to our stay. So it is so close to the mountain and can see all the black and white cow. But at this time Payo was a bit moody, so semua taknak.. ""I takut..I takut". When try to bring him near the cow. hehe..Lepas dapat ice cream baru mood okay sikit..terlompat-lompat balik.






Sebab ada pic kasut..cos I love it so much..and its a new shoes.hehehe

Cow yg Si Payo dok " Ï takut..I takut"


After than we stop at the Kundasang Memorial Park. I thought it was nothing here, until I saw the story behind it. I thought only few of Australia and Britain's army was died here. It was 2684, and only 8 survived! It happened when Japan take them as Prisoner of War and force them to walk for 256km from Ranau to Sandakan, that time there is no proper road side, it all just jungle and mountain. So all of them died except for 8 people. I think it should become a movie. Tragic really tragic.


I dunno why Payo posing like that..hahaha


Some of the wild beauty
Yup..posing sgt korang kan

Okay Ammi selfie sensorang lg besh..

I think its his signature pose.. 



After that, we went back to the same spot for our lunch, Restaurant Intan. Chicken wings,hot soup, with rice and telur dadar, and having all that while facing the Mount Kinabalu. Best time!


The mountain got covered by the cloud.. 

Plan to go to Strawberry Garden, but since its off season, we cancel the plan. We went to Kinabalu Park, where all the adventures starts for the climbers. Hubby tried to bring the car as close as to the starting point. Kind a scary route, and we have not stop for pic since it was heavy rain but we stop at Kiau Gap View, some stop towards the starting point, which actually we can see Mount Kinabalu clearly and really close up if its sunny.

Sejuk wehhh..


We went down, and went to Pekan Nabalu for some souvenir. Didn't get much souvenir, since I just realized I have left with few RM. But managed to get some t-shirts, key chains. Jadi lahhh..
Muka dah sememeh..


View from Pekan Nabalu..
Went back to Kundasang, had our dinner, and we are through for the day.

Dah nak pack balik..

Cedih..tak puas...

But can see that Payo really enjoyed the stay there. He was a bit scared when he got into plane. Siap ajak balik.. dah sampai hotel.. lupa dah terus nak go home.. he he..


Bye bye Sabah...I want to go home..





Bye bye Kundasang. We will come again one day.
Insha Allah.
