Homework on School Holiday

Adam brought back couple of workbook on his last day of school and together with a note for the parents to assist the kids to finish up the work assigned for them..

I counted the pages that Adam have to do.. and it is 58 pages!! I suspected that actually the work have to be done at school.. but knowing my son - who the teacher reported during his 1st progress report needs a lot of practice in writing - he didn't do it..  and since the school have this concept of no homework.. he was not sent back with a homework.. 

Sekarang Mama bertukar jadi naga!! singa pon boleh jugak..

the table

So.. I did this table just to monitor his homework progress.. and put it in front of him..

ni progress selepas mama jadi singa mengaum 2 hari
I guess this table give him some sort of encouragement to finish his homework.. he wanted to do more pages when he saw me striking off a couple of boxes..

Cinta Bersatu

Another song that I love the music.. a perfect song for a wedding.. and I was surprised to learn that the singer is Liyana Jasmay.. Wasn't she an actress??

(by: Liyana Jasmay)

Di matamu ku berharga
Kau perlakukan aku
Lebih dari mencintai dirimu

Di dekatmu ku merasa
Bahagianya aku
Dapat ruang cintamu

Hanya kamu saja
Yang mampu begitu
Mengerti aku

Kau sempurna bagiku
Tak kurang sesuatu
Kau terima apa adaku

Ku sempurna bagimu
Tak kurang sesuatu
Cinta bersatu

Cara mencintaiku

Yang membuatku diriku jatuh cinta padamu

Chicken Pox

Spotted couple of spots this morning.. and brought him straight to see the doctor.. and yes it is confirmed!

 Adam got it!

And I opted for the anti viral syrup as suggested by the doctor.. according to her the level of chicken pox attack differs.. some people get it the normal way.. some the pox would grow in the eyes in the mouth which in children case would be a torture for them..

And I noticed that Adam is no longer difficult with medicine.. and he no longer needs the syringe.. a medicine spoon would do.. and oh.. he's not being difficult or clingy.. I guess because he doesn't have the fever and not itchy (thanks to the itch syrup the doctor prescribed)..

his face.. I hope it won't leave scars
showing off his chicken pox and he's proud of it

Makan - Makan || Tappers Cafe, Shaftsbury Square

One of the lunch hour me and colleagues had the opportunity to try at another one of the cafe in Shaftsbury Square, Cyberjaya.. This time around our makan spot was chosen based on the review in Jalan-Jalan Cari Makan show.. Tappers was one of the cafe visited..

the interior

The cafe was full that time since it was lunch hour on a Friday..Luckily there were a place for us.. we requested for a bigger table which was also available that time but they said they were expecting a bigger group so we were seated at table for 4..


The manager (I guess) was the one entertaining us.. we were given the menu and was let to choose.. than he came for our order.. we asked about the specials.. so he suggested the Chicken Parmigiana.. he said it was featured in the JJCM show.. So we ordered one and another 3 dishes.. the menu came together with drinks.. The prices for lunch set was affordable..

our drinks - honey lemon, lemon juice and Goo Leng Ping which is actually the normal bandung
We didn't have to wait long for our drinks to be served.. then came our food.. but they served it one at a time.. by the time all our food were served, our table was too full.. and at the same time the vacant table for 6 that we requested earlier was seated by 2 person and not one of the staff said anything.. hurrmmmm.. 

We were satisfied with the food presentation but sorry to say that the taste was not to out liking.. it could be much better.. We concluded that after this we won't believe the review by this particular tv show.. and we won't be visiting this cafe in the new future..

roast chicken
According to my colleague, the chicken was a bit plain and bland.. she had to add chilli sauce for more taste..

Tappers Hainanese Chicken Chop
Actually this colleague of mine was craving for another kind of chicken chop but this is the only chicken chop available so she opted for this.. not to her liking..

chicken parmigiana
This was suppose to be the best.. but I didn't quite like the sauce.. something missing.. but all 4 of us agreed that the coleslaw and fries is good..

chicken schnitzel
 the portion is big hence the price is a bit higher than the other 3.. the sauce is the same sauce as the roast chicken.. she also added chilli sauce..

When I Was Your Man

Love the music!!

(by: Bruno Mars)

Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio but it don't sound the same
When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down
'Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name

It all just sounds like oooooh…
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party
'Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby's dancing
But she's dancing with another man

My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made, ohh…
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes

It all just sounds like oooooh…
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party
'Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby's dancing
But she's dancing with another man

Although it hurts
I'll be the first to say that I was wrong
Oh, I know I'm probably much too late
To try and apologize for my mistakes
But I just want you to know

I hope he buys you flowers
I hope he holds your hand
Give you all his hours
When he has the chance
Take you to every party
'Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man

Teachers Day

Adam's first teachers day.. Eventhough he went to play school last year.. but this year is the real school..I don't think he even now what Teacher's Day is.. bu I said to him to give "presents" to his aunties.. notice the word presents? that's the keyword to get his attention.. I gave all the teacher's because I really appreciate what they did to Adam.. He showed a lot of improvement from the first day I sent him to the school.. alhamdulillah.. a little appreciation won't hurt right?

I made the thank you card myself and asked Adam to write his name on the card
the final look of the card
the gift for each teacher

Do you guys remember what did you get for your teachers for Teacher's Day? I still remember when I was in kindie.. my mom had this garden full of blooming orchids.. early in the morning, she would gather up colourful orchids and made them into bouquets for my teachers.. when I went to school.. I mean when I get to appreciate that day.. I only gave my teachers pens.. Kilometrico pens to be exact.. all 3 colours! heeee.. and the gifts giving stop when I was in boarding school.. I guess money was the issue that time.. I prefer to spent my monthly allowances on me rather for other people.. hehehehe.. such a selfish girl I am..

p/s: at Adam's school, their teachers are known as aunties..
