Still Here...

Gosh! It's been about a month plus since I wrote my last entry. I had a million things I wanted to write about in the past month, but never got around to writing them down. I never seemed to have the time. The Raya month was in itself a busy time for me and others too I'm sure. With balik kampung and visiting relatives and friends as the main agenda.


I was pretty much occupied with all these but more so with a certain incident which happened on the 5th day of Raya. My son who was at my mom-in-law's house with his cousins decided to do what could only be described as a triple somersault which saw him landing or to be more precise slamming his face onto the leather sofa. Apparently he was running around the hall and had somehow rather tripped over his cousin's leg, thus resulting in the fall.


When I saw him after the fall, I nearly fainted from shock. The bruising and swelling was unbelievable. His nose had doubled instantly and lucky for him there was no bleeding nor fracture. Over the days, the bruise turned green, then blue, then purple, then green again and later became yellow...just like a true chameleon!
Anyway, it took about 2 weeks before his nose turned back to normal.. i.e to its orignal size and colour.


Hmm..at present when many of my colleagues are enjoying their break, I on the other hand have had to work. It's that time of the year when students have to sit for their exams and yours truly have to be on duty. And this will go on for another 2 weeks. I leave home as early as 6.10am and most times come home a good 12 hours later. By the time I reach home, I'm like a zombie just wanting to curl up in bed and sleeeeeppppp till next year!


When husband comes home after his night shifts, he doesn't bother to wake me up anymore...knowing that only a nuclear explosion would be able to wake me up from my deep and dead-tired slumber! And since I leave early the next day, there have been many days when I've hardly had a decent conversation with him. Perhaps the longest sentence I've managed to utter to him when he returned from work late one night was "Baju kat situ" (directing him to his pyjamas)...and that was it.


To be honest, I can't wait for my duty to end and I'll be able to enjoy the hols with the kids. For the time being, whilst this harried mama is busy at work, the kid's grandma has taken over. Thank God for Mak Tok who comes to the house everyday to make sure the kids eat, read and get their correct daily dose of TV-time.

Teaching is very tiring at times,let alone marking assignments, exam papers, doing admin work & all that. Besides, teachers (or lecturers for tht matter) are also asked to look for students who are weak and give them special attention which I believe is one heck of humongous task to accomplish.Too many of them especially if you are one of those who conduct mass lecture in a university and marking papers like 200 scripts. Nevertheless, it's a noble profession. Keep up the good work sis.

I think i'm becoming a big fan of this blog.
