First Day to School; Baby Boy Meets World…
3rd January 2008 – Both of my kids, Ikhwan and Marsya, registered and went to their new school, hmmm kindergarten actually. Both of them were fired up and excited to begin their first day at school. Waking them up in the morning was not troublesome at all. However, the pace was slower because they just woke up and were still sleepy. I took a day off from work to accompany and witness their very first day together with my beloved wife.
Ikhwan and Marsya wore their shoes at the front door.
Tadika Ijazah. This is their English Medium Pre-School (which consists of two unit of houses transformed into a kindergarten) . It cost us RM1100 for registration for both of them. The monthly fees are RM90 per person. Well, it’s cheaper than the well establish Tadika Nuri franchise, which the registration cost about RM1100 per person and from RM150 monthly per person (check out Tadika Nuri website for more accurate figure). Nowadays, enrolling kids to kindergarten is like sending them to local university. The cost and maintenance is so high.
As for primary and secondary school is concern, believe it or not, this year, the entire cost (including uniform + school fees + etc) to send children to school is very high. I knew about this when I chatted with a bunch of friends at work and in my neighbourhood. Most of them complained on how ridiculously high the cost for school registration. I wonder how the lower income citizens can afford the cost!!! Hopefully, in future, we can enjoy totally 100% free education.

Ikhwan and Marsya playing the puzzle (are those thing called puzzle? I’m not sure). Ikhwan was still uncomfortable. Actually both of them fear us leaving. As we left, we can hear them shouting and crying. But, we have to leave them and let their teachers handle them. After school, they were OK and happy; and eager to go to school the next day.
A New Life, A New Beginning…
3rd January 2008 – A new baby boy was born about 0730 hours after the mother felt the contraction 3 hours before. He is my new nephew and their grand parents’ 2nd grandson. It was a normal birth delivery and the baby weighted 2.7 kg. It seems that the mother experienced an easy and fast delivery – no complications. Thank God. Hmm….at this moment, the baby don’t have a name yet. When are you going to name him Budeen?
Was he thinking? Or having a sweet wonderful dream?
He sleeps peacefully. He’s really cute and small. When will you bring him to JB Budeen?
Budeen, the father embraced his beloved new born son. Thanks for the photos bro.
Oh yea….while waiting at the hospital, it’s good to read zakiyamani.com. Well, after this browse via FireFox Ok….!
