Operasi Membersih Rumah Sempena Cuti Sekolah

Cuti sekolah sudah bermula! Inilah masanya bagiku untuk mengemas rumah yang memang sudah lama tidak terurus. Kalau setakat menyapu lantai tu memang la kena buat hari2. Cuma bab2 pembersihan besar2an ni kena buat pada waktu yang betul2 terluang aje. Jadi aku mengambil kesempatan pada hari Jumaat yg mulia ini untuk membersihkan kipas siling yg sememangnya kotor. Manakala anak2ku pula mengemas buku2 mereka n membersihkan lantai. Aku juga tidak lupa membersihkan sarang labah-labah yg mengotorkan siling rumah tu…Harapan aku selepas ini agar pembersihan rumah ini dilakukan sekerap mungkin. InsyaAllah sekiranya aku tidak sibuk dgn urusan kerja n penjagaan 3 org anak yg masih kecil ni….

SELAMAT BERCUTI KEPADA SEMUA GURU DAN MURID YANG SEDANG MEMBACA ENTRIKU INI…..

HOW TO KNOW WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE READY TO HAVE KIDS:

MESS TEST
Smear peanut butter on the sofa and curtains. Place a fish stick behind the couch and leave it there all summer.
TOY TEST
Obtain a 55 gallon box of Legos (or you may substitute roofing tacks). Have a friend spread them all over the house. Put on a blindfold. Try to walk to the bathroom or kitchen. Do not scream because this would wake a child at night.
GROCERY STORE TEST
Borrow one or two small animals (goats are best) and take them with you as you shop. Always keep them in sight and pay for anything they eat or damage.
DRESSING TEST
Obtain one large, unhappy, live octopus. Stuff into a small net bag making sure that all the arms stay inside.
FEEDING TEST
Obtain a large plastic milk jug. Fill halfway with water. Suspend from the ceiling with a cord. Start the jug swinging. Try to insert spoonfuls of soggy cereal into the mouth of the jug, while pretending to be an airplane. Now dump the contents of the jug on the floor.
NIGHT TEST
Prepare by obtaining a small cloth bag and fill it with 8-12 pounds of sand. Soak it thoroughly in water. At 3:00p.m. begin to waltz and hum with the bag until 9:00p.m. Lay down your bag and set your alarm for 10:00p.m.Get up, pick up your bag, and sing every song you have ever heard. Make up about a dozen more and sing these too until 4:00a.m. Set alarm for 5:00a.m. Get up and make breakfast. Keep this up for 5 years. Look cheerful.
INGENUITY TEST
Take an egg carton. Using a pair of scissors and pot of paint, turn it into an alligator. Now take a toilet paper tube and turn it into an attractive Christmas candle. Use only scotch tape and a piece of foil. Last, take a milk carton, a ping-pong ball, and an empty box of Cocoa Puffs. Make an exact replica of the Eiffel Tower.
AUTOMOBILE TEST
Forget the BMW and buy a station wagon. Buy a chocolate ice cream cone and put it in the glove compartment. Leave it there. Get a dime. Stick it into the cassette player. Take a family size package of chocolate chip cookies. Mash them into the back seat. Run a garden rake along both sides of the car. There, perfect.
PHYSICAL TEST (Women)
Obtain a large bean bag chair and attach it to the front of your clothes. Leave it there for 9 months. Now remove 10 of the beans. And try not to notice your closet full of clothes.You won’t be wearing them for a while.
PHYSICAL TEST (Men)
Go to the nearest drug store. Set your wallet on the counter. Ask the clerk to help himself. Now proceed to the nearest food store. Go to the head office and arrange for your paycheck to be directly deposited to the store. Purchase a newspaper. Go home and read it quietly for the last time.
FINAL ASSIGNMENT
Find a couple who already have a small child. Lecture them on how they can improve their discipline, patience, tolerance, toilet training and child’s table manners. Suggest many ways they can improve. Emphasize to them that they should never allow their children torun wild. Enjoy this experience. It will be the last time you will have all the answers.

Belasungkawa untuk datuk saudaraku…..

Sampai ke rumah tepat jam 6.30 petang pada petang Selasa, 9 Februari 2010, aku menerima panggilan telefon dari abangku di kampong yang memaklumkan satu-satunya datuk saudaraku telah kembali ke rahmatullah kerana sakit tua. Allahyarham Haji Lutfi Sulaiman merupakan adik kepada nenek sebelah ibu. Pada hayatnya arwah bekerja sebagai guru sekolah rendah di Machang, Kelantan dan bersara sekitar awal tahun 1990an. Pada zaman lapangnya, arwah menjadi pak andam. Tetapi apabila pencen dari kerjayanya sebagai guru, maka dia hanya Cuma meminjamkan peralatan perkahwinan seperti pelamin dan bekas hantaran kepada orang-orang kampong.
Arwah pernah berkahwin pada zaman mudanya tetapi sudah berpisah dan tidak dikurniakan sebarang cahayamata. Jadi dia menumpahkan kasih sayangnya kepada anak-anak dan cucu-cucu saudara. Pernah juga dia mengambil anak angkat untuk menemaninya di rumah kerana dia tinggal berseorangan.
Seingat aku pada zaman kanak-kanak dan remaja, arwah selalu membuat majlis mengacau bubur asyura dan acara ini disertai oleh semua penduduk kampong. Selain daripada itu dia juga kerap mengadakan majlis berbuka puasa, kenduri kesyukuran dan doa selamat.
Tapi saya cukup terkilan kerana tidak dapat melawat arwah semasa dia sedang sakit kerana faktor kesibukan tugas dan menguruskan anak-anak yang masih kecil. Seingat aku ingin menziarahinya semasa cuti Tahun Baru Cina selama seminggu ini tetapi Allah telah menjemputnya lebih awal. Kepada Allahyarham Tok Su Tepi, aku akan menyedekahkan Al-Fatihah dan Surah Yassin buatmu. Semoga roh Tok Su ditempatkan di tempat orang-orang yang beriman. Amin…..

A daddy with his kid

Yes, I am a proud father of three young girls. They call me ‘daddy’ and we seem to be inseparable no matter what happens. It’s definitely hard to raise them when they are young, but I am sure that as time goes by, they can manage themselves. My eldest is 6 years old, the middle girl is 3 while the youngest will turn two on a day before Ramadan. OK, Ramadan is coming and I will take this opportunity to get closer to Allah. And one good thing, I will become slimmer after the fasting month. At present, my weight is 76kg but God willing, I can shed at least 3kg this time around. I hope so….
