Dear Robin of Sherwood ...

There are so many things about my son Muhammad Irfan that I have not shared here in this blog. For example, last year he has managed to obtain 5As in his UPSR exam (a very important examination that determines a placement at a secondary school). Today he goes to one of the top boarding schools in Malaysia. ALHAMDULILLAH. All his hard works have been rewarded handsomely by The Almighty. Our prayers, as parents, were answered.

His school, Sekolah Menengah Agama Persekutuan Kajang (SMAPK), holds the 'School of Excellence' status, granted by the Ministry of Education and its niche is in this one particular sport: Archery. For those who do not know, archery in Malaysia is considered an elite sport because very few schools make avail the facilities and equipment, due to the fact that they involve expensive investments. Surprisingly, many of Malaysia's talented archer originate from this school!

Irfan, somehow, has fallen in love with this game too. He is at present actively practising the proper techniques and skills and has improved tremendously since we bought him his very own archery set. I attach here some of his photos during training. I had never imagined that he will one day represent Malaysia in an international tournament, but who knows what will happen in the future, ya? There is beauty in Allah's secrets.

So dear Robin of Sherwood,
                                           Be afraid. Be very afraid...!   LOL.

Oh! Life...!

Last Friday when I sent my car to a workshop for some routine maintenance, the foreman told me his schedules were tight, so I have to leave the car overnight and come back Monday morning to pick it up. Reluctantly, I gave him the car keys and left the place, walking towards the main road. I made a quick call to my husband to fetch me, told him I’ll be waiting by the road side at an open area that resembles a mini park.

I waited about 45 minutes for him to come and rescue me. Well, you know, this waiting game could really test your mental stability and tire you out, especially when you've had a hard day at work.

So I was thinking....How nice it is to be able to relax under the trees, with gentle breeze stirring the air and the sound of birds chirping from the tree tops (apart from the sound of the engines roaring on the road...)

I sat on the grass and my brain tricked me for sitting on a thick, soft rug...Ahh... so calm and peaceful...

As I was about to doze off to the music of the nature suddenly this naughty baby porcupine (did I tell you earlier I was not alone?) poked my eyes with her fingers! Yes, you read that right, she poked my eyes!

“Ouch!!! What do you think you’re doing?!”

“Don’t sleep, mum!”

“Why not?”

“What if we get lost while you’re sleeping?”

Oh dear!
