Teehah and the pen

Today, something happened that really shook me to the core.

Teehah tripped while she was holding a black ball pen in her hand. I wasn't really paying attention to her as I was sweeping the bread crumbs off the floor. Just a minute ago, she was happily playing with her playskool castle and the next, she was lying on her face, screaming in agony! I turned towards her and to my horror, I saw the black devil pen penned under her tiny beautiful face, next to her right eye. Immediately, I knew something was wrong...I lifted her up and blood was trailing off from the wound underneath her eye. My panic button went off! All hell broke loose!

Then the paramedics came and we went to the hospital in the ambulance and Jill (one of the paramedics) was really sweet and she helped to calm me and teehah down. Kak zu was there as well. Midah and Marlina helped to look after the children (mine and kak zu's) while we were at the hospital.

We waited and waited and waited and waited for the doctors. We reached the hospital at half past two and we went home at half past six. Imagine that! It was indeed a very very loooong wait at the A&E. Auntie Zu left at 4.30 because she had to go to work. Then Rohaida and her mum came and they brought along some popias and nasik ayam ...Yummy!

Nevertheless, thank you Allah, Alhamdulillah everything was okay and according to the doctors, the cut under teehah's eye is superficial and it will heal on its own... well, we will have to wait and see, won't we.

Then babah came and took us home. The end!...

The moral of the story is.... buang semua pen hitam!

the children's anecdote


Minggu sudah, farah cirit birit and because of this she was off school for two days. I had to go to kak amy to help her because she was moving. Hence, I had to take farah with me. When we were there, farah went to the loo and while we were busy unpacking and packing things, we heard her shouted, "ummi ummi, tomorrow I can go to school, kakak dah tak sakit perut dah, berak kakak dah kuat!"


Today, the kids ada ceramah dgn ustaz maszlee about the differences between raya org islam and raya non-muslim... Ihsan was excited about it and when he got back from school, he confidently told me that, "ummi, ummi hari ni ada curabah ummi, curabah ustaz maszlee kat rumah aunti ayu"


A few weeks back, iman was helping me in the kitchen. He was peeling the onions and garlic and was trying to make small talk while doing the chore, "ummi, you know ada cerita melayu pasal these onions tau ummi"
"Ye ker, how do you know"
"Yes, my friends (his Malaysian friends) told me"
"what is it called then"
"bawang besar and bawang putih!"
