An Important Reminder


I know that I have been so 'the hiatus' these few weeks.. for those who had visited my blog to see if there's any new update, thank you so so so much. I'll treat you with a plate of Hainanese Chicken Rice next time, but please don't ask for extra plate, lol... 

Last two weeks was a busy days for Mr Pocoyo too, he was at school for two Saturdays. It was a Lantern Celebration and the second one was the Teachers and Parents Day, I had attended both as requested by the school. Pocoyo has a good achievement in his academic so far except for his BM. His teacher informed me that he's weak in that subject. Anyway, I don't think it's serious because he started in July and I'm not gonna struggle to improve that 
at this moment, I will just let him enjoy the school first, after all he's only 4YO and he's expose to 3 languages now. He loves the school so much and that's the most important. 

It was a week ago when Pocoyo and his entire schoolmates went to the zoo, his dad was a bit reluctant to let him go because he was worry that the teachers couldn't control the kids but because of Mr Pocoyo was so excited, we let him go. I was at the school seeing him queuing up to the big bus nervously, few other moms were there too. I was really worry, what if the bus accident, what if the kids kidnapped in group etc etc... Me and few other moms were standing in the school compound waited till the tour bus left to Lok Kawi Zoo, we didn't talk much, we shared the same worries I believe. 

In the afternoon, me and the parents waited for an hour to pick up the kids, that was one of the most stressful day as the bus was behind the schedule, I remember sitting in the car kept looking at my watch waiting and waiting. The bus reached the school at 1.30pm with exhausted happy kids. Although it was a stressful day but it made me realized that my life is so moderate and most of the parents in that school are so rich but somehow we share the same worry in many ways. The only different is, if the kids were in trouble, the rich mom will cry in their shining Benz and I cry in my ordinary car, lol.

That was not the only thing, during the Lantern Celebration where it was also a potluck party, I had this uneasy feeling when some parents brought some giant size cheese cake , special chicken etc etc while Pocoyo and I arrived with wrapped banana cake from Multibake. Euuuwwww.. no class!

It was the day where the parents witnessed their kids learning abilities and we watched the kids dancing in group happily. Suddenly there was one little boy rolling on the floor, crying out loud abnormally. He was screaming requesting the teacher to change the music that was being played. Other kids were stunned looking at him as he was slapping the floor. The loving teacher, picked him up from the floor and played the song that he wanted. I couldn't help not to ask the principal what's wrong with the little boy, the madam said that he's actually an autism. It was painful to hear, I looked at the boy's mom who were at the corner sitting calmly and I blamed myself to underrate the low class banana cake. I should be grateful all the times, I arrived with small car, low class potluck food but my kid is healthy. I shouldn't feel 'euuww' when only kids were interested with the banana cake while the parents were lining up for the highclass food lol.. sobss lol sobss 

I shouldn't forget to be grateful. You too.

  1. yeah, nothing comes more important than your own kid being healthy and happy.. cheap banana cakes?? well, if it's delicious and the kids love them, why not?? and i could sense the kids may not like that giant expensive cheesecake at all~~ :p

  4. I often had this similar thoughts. I always told friends that all the rich and poor people will lie in the same sized coffins and buried inside same earth plots! All the materials in this world is just an illusion only. So when i sleep, I will purposely dream that I live in Malibu Beach bungalows and drive Ferrari before dozing off in deep sleep.
    Last weekend, I organized a gathering for school mates and when we parted outside the restaurant, my eyes glued at the BMWs, Porche and Benzs they sped off into the night. My wife yelled at me to stop admiring these people when our lives are happier than theirs in many ways too.

  5. this reminds me of a potluck party we had few years back at the church i went to. everyone brought nice, 'classy' home-made dishes.. (i brought my home-made cake decorated with beautiful icing ..eheheh) and this one woman, a mother of a few child, brought just plain friend ikan basung. when it was time to eat, nobody bothered to take her ikan basung..and i feel so sorry for her.

    forward to present: i love ikan basung goreng! punya sedang itu barang!

    i think what matters most is the thought. that counts more than the price of the food itself. and no matter how classy we are, spending thousands of dollars on skincare kunun ka, expensive clothings ka, at the end of the day when we die.. we'll leave behind all those things. the only things we can bring along with us is the things that we did during our lifetime - which will determine 'where' we'll go for eternally. :)

    (uiseh, aku bercakap mcm orang alim oh kan? hahahaha)
