I've stopped buying them and I feel good about it. You can too.

The English Language

I take it you already know
Of tough and bough and cough and dough.
Others may stumble, but not you,
On hiccough, thorough, laugh and through.
Well done! And now you wish, perhaps,
To learn of less familiar traps.

Beware of heard, a dreadful word,
That looks like beard and sounds like bird;
And dead: it's said like bed and not like bead.
For goodness sake don;t call it deed.
Watch out for meat and great and threat;
They rhyme with suite and straight and debt.

A moth is not a moth in mother,
Nor both in bother, broth in brother;
And here is not a match for there.
Nor dear and fear for bear and pear.
And then there's dose and rose and lose -
Just look them up - and goose and choose,
And cork and work and cord and ward,
And font and front and word and sword,
And do and go and thwart and cart.

Come, come, I've hardly made a start!
A dreadful language? Man alive!
I'd mastered it when I was five!

To A Stranger With Love

I've never met her and so I don't know her personally. I knew her for her husband's blog. Since November I followed the blog to know about her struggles to an illness unknown to doctors. It is known as Santau.

She was a loving mother and wife. She was always there to volunteer in all religious activities that was done. She was the jewel of her family. She was loved by all her friends.

To her husband and children, please be strong. This is the challenge that Allah had given to you to test your Iman. The test is only given to special people.

Al-Fatihah to Sister Siti Aisha.

Mahabbah Lillah Camp

Last two weeks after coming back from Kuantan the kids had the opportunity to join a camp organized by JIM Penang. It was an eye opener for them joining kids from different backgrounds of education mainly those from Islamic school. The did enjoyed themselves and I on the other hand tried my best to help around with the activities but had to keep it at the minimum since I had a fever, flu and cough...

Origami session

Traditional eating session. Lunch in a big tray.

After the camp, we headed to our next destination, Melaka. As usual, the kids were busy with the pool activities. Monstermom joined them and too bad I forgot to apply the sunscreen lotion. What a nice tan I had....
Immidiately after Melaka, we rushed back to Kedah, to celebrate Eidul Adha. Last night, we are back in Penang.
Now I have to confine myself in the house hoping that tan will subside in a few weeks...
Piles of dirty laundry to catch up and not forgetting the dust all over the house.
Have a nice week!
