The normal mail arrived
Showed us the printed exam results, Alhamdulillah syukur!
Followed by the sms for UPU
Showed us the next place of destination to further your studies
Alhamdulillah syukur, as was requested in the list of your choice

Then came the magic question
Who should send you to the new campus?

Which car could accommodate your belongings?
Of course its none other than dad's
Shopping must be done, who would take you?
Dad of course!

Well done SON!
Whatever course was given to you
Do it well
AND don't forget our family motto
Be the BEST

So, there is only 8 days left
For you to be around, to look at our faces
Hear our voices and have meals with us
Hear the chuckle and hhhhaaaa
Who is it from?
Who else, none other than Amir Harith

Be on your way now my son
Perform well and aim high
May you succeed in whatever you may take and do
Mummy's prayers shall always
Be with you, always and always...

Don't forget to bring along
Your Red Sheafer Pen
Your bed linens, blankets and towelings
Your shirts, pants and all


May Allah Guide you
Bless you and Answer all your prayers
Be a good son, a good Muslim and a good citizen
Be aware of the "outside influence"
The "elements" that may distract you
From your focus in your life and your studies!!!!

I love you, your siblings love you!
Amir Harith loves you too.
WELL done dear

Fiz............CONGRATULATIONS from Mummy's little heart


One fine morning the phone rang. It gave such a nice feeling of ticklish down your goes...>

Hello, could I speak to ...Mdm...?

Yes, this is her speaking. May I help you Sir?

I learned that your company is doing ID? Is that right?

Yes Sir. Anything Sir?

Oh we are from Mont Sinclair, have you heard of us? We are organizing an Interior Exhibition soon at the Convention Center and we would like to invite you

Yes, I have...O? Thank you for inviting

May I know how many ID personnels have you got in your company?

After thinking out loud, real loud!...(long enough) to give a sensible and honest answer...

Sir, at the moment...there is only ME left. The rest have gone and they are freelancing now.

Never mind, I would like you to come to our exhibition in July. So there is only you doing this in your company? I would send you our invitation card soon.

YYYYYYYYYes, for the moment, yyyyyes. Thank you again and I shall be looking forward to receiving your invitation card.

You are welcome and hope to see you at the exhibition, don't miss it. Bye, bye. Have a good day.

Thank you , same to you. Bye bye. was only me all long doing this from my company. What made him think that there were others doing ID from RDMSB? Perhaps it's the name and its size.....

I couldn't help but almost bursting into laughter while the phone conversation went on.....and of course smiling in amusement for a few moments more...(this incident happened a couple of weeks ago)


still s
miling now as I am writing this light moments of short story to share with you...tra la la la, la la!

THE 80 cents EXODUS

As soon as the news was announced about the petrol price hike, everyone scramble out with their vehicles and queuing up all the way to the petrol stations. I did not go out. This house has five drivers, so I need not rush out and join the crowd. The station nearest to us was only one kilometer away but it was congested and at a stand I was told.

So, my two children maneuvered themselves to the one about two kilometers away. From the clocked-out time of 6.30p.m., they have just clocked-in and returned home, hungry and thirsty at 10.30p.m...Real exodus this time. The whole period on the journey to the nearest petrol station, was nothing more than switching off and switching on their engines at every half an hour interval. It simply would not move! so I was told

I could not imagine the jam on the exits to the pumps and anywhere nearer to the station...but I could imagine town folks cutting queues and blowing their horns at their own free wills.
this fact I am sure of, so no need to be told..

BUT dear readers, do not be surprised, there are those who do not even bother to go out and fill up their tanks to their fleet of cars...they would find their time tomorrow and comfortably filling them up one by one.

AND where was little Amir Harith all these time? He has also left home round about the same time as his uncle and aunt did. Did he go and queue as well? YES, of course he did. He went to UMMC for his regular injections. He is almost 5 months now. So, surely the paediatrician would have given his mom some panadols to take home just in case...
so, as much as I might have guessed
