Gloomy Wednesday...

Well, the sun is shining very, very brightly outside. The only gloomy thing is my heart.

I am stuck. And there's nothing I could do about it since I am depending on others to finish their jobs so that I could become unstuck. I've got 3 major things to settle within 3 weeks, but with the slow progress, I have serious doubt if these major things could be completed in time.

And I am having a terrible back pain today, which resulted in me couldn't do anything but lie down. Plus, the flu and cough bugs which have been attacking me for the past 3 weeks just don't want to go away!

To add salt to the wound, I am missing Hubby very much. And he's not around to share my woes. Hwaaa!!!

Hope tomorrow will be a shinier day. At least for my heart. Although I am very, very sure that all the above would not disappear tomorrow, at least I hope my heart is strong enough to just ignore the pains..

Sayang Anak Tangan-Tangankan..

Which loosely translate as 'If you love your kids, you've got to learn to punish them so that they could differentiate the good and the bad' or something like that..

I was at one of the fast food restaurant with my son to have an early dinner just now. We proceeded to the upper floor of the restaurant so that Daniel could play at the play area while we ate. There was just a family eating at one of the tables closer to the play area. We took another table close to them.

Then, a burly Malay guy came upstairs with 2 of his children. They went to the rest room area which was at the far end of the room from us. They approached 2 female workers who were cleaning the area, and he confronted them. The conversation went something like this:

Man: (asking his children) Siapa yang marah tadi? (Who scolded you just now?)

The kid must have pointed to one of the workers (I didn't bother to look at the incident)

Man: Kenapa awak marah anak saya tadi? (Why you scolded my child just now?)

Worker: Mana ada marah Encik! Lantai ni licin tadi saya cuci, jadi saya tak bagi diorang main kat sini takut jatuh. Mana saya ada marah diorang! (I didn't scold them, Sir! The floor was slippery just now after I cleaned them, so I didn't allow them to play around at this area so that they won't fall. I didn't scold them!)

Man: (Shouting to them, very angrily) Sampai menangis budak-budak ni tadi kena marah! Diorang ni budak-budak. Diorang tak tau apa-apa! Awak tu sebagai orang dewasa kena faham la. Jangan sesuka hati nak marah-marah budak-budak. Kalau tak boleh guna tandas, cakap baik-baik. Diorang bukannya faham! (You scolded them until they cried! They are just kids! They don't understand! You as adult should understand. Don't simply scold the kids. If the toilets couldn't be used, tell them nicely. They don't understand!)

And then he continued lecturing them on top of his voice for maybe another 5 minutes.

While I pretended not to care about the chaos, I couldn't help but feel pity for the worker, but also the guy for his lack of intelligence. It was not such a big deal that should have caused such a scene! First of all, he shouldn't have let his children wander around themselves upstairs when he was downstairs if he really cared about them. And, if that was they way he treated his children, it's not impossible that they would continue to be spoilt brats whom would cause more trouble to the people around them in the future.

Hallo brader! Orang lain pun sayang anak, ok! Rilekla...Kalau nak marah pun biarlah kena gaya dan tempatnya!

Daniel's school is currently being sealed!!

My goodness! I was shocked when I saw the 'X' taped all around Daniel's school compound when I sent him there on Monday morning. Macam a scene from CSI pulak! 2 of his teachers were waiting in front of the gate and told me that the school's activities would be held at the Dewan Masyarakat near there.

Upon reaching the hall, I asked the waiting teacher what had happened. She told me that the school was sealed because a particular resident (the neighbour of the school) made a complaint to MP** that the school was noisy, some times parents parked their cars in front of his house when sending off the kids and some times the drivers honked.

I tried to call the owner of Daniel's school that day but she didn't answer, but I did saw her the next day when I sent Daniel for school. She explained to me that the neighbour kept stressing to the MP** that he is a pilot, and he needs his rest. And he couldn't rest because of the noise that the kids made during lessons. The thing is, he normally flies during the school period, and when he's back for his rest, the school normally would be over. Maybe some times the time clashes, but it was not every day. And furthermore, he's going to move out soon. So, we really do not see the point of him protesting against the school!

Anyway, the Residents' Association there is on the school's side. They will be meeting again with MP** next week to debate on the issue. Too bad I am a committee of another section's RA, so I couldn't join the meeting. I hope they could resolve the issue soon, because as of now, I am very concerned about the comfort of the kids having lessons at the hall, what with the minimal facilities there and the current heatwave. Daniel's school is not the only kindy at that section. In fact there is at least a kindy at every streets at that section. The other kindies are not facing any such problem. Maybe their neighbours are not pilots, eh? Some people.... sheeeshhh!!!!

Today's Tazkirah..

I was flipping through the TV channels last Friday, during the Maulidur Rasul holiday, when I came across the programme 'Usrah' with Dato' Dr Fatimah el Zahra as the host. The discussion for the day was "Wasiat Rasulullah SAW kepada wanita" or something like that. It was such an interesting usrah and I would like to share some of the points that I remembered with you:

1) When Rasulullah SAW was on the Isra' & Mikraj journey, he saw many women inside hell. One of the reasons was women has 'too many mouths' for e.g. always argue with the husbands, are not thankful enough to their husbands, always talk bad about other people etc. There fore, women MUST always istighfar and sadaqah because these 'amal' could erase all the small sins that we 'unconsciously' do every day

2) Fatimah r.a, the daughter of Rasulullah SAW, once sadly told him that she was too tired doing house chores without any helper. She requested for a hand/maid to help her around the house. Rasululllah told her to recite "Subhanallah (33x), Alhamdulillah (33x) and Allahuakbar (34x)" every day before going to sleep. With this 'amal' we would feel strong to do all the chores without the help of any body, we would be patience with all the difficulties in our lives and most of all, we will gain endless 'pahala' as the reward from Allah SWT

One lady from the audience asked Dato' about the 'hukum' of a woman who treats her own mother and her mother-in-law differently. She said that we should treat both our own mothers and our mothers-in-law equally. As a matter of fact, we should treat our mothers-in-law better than we treat our own mothers, because we married the sons that they bore and bred with all the difficulties, and we took our husbands from their mothers 'ready-made' so easily. Therefore, they deserved to be treated nicely by us, the daughters-in-law

Those were some of the points that I could remember. Semoga bermanfaat, InsyaAllah..
