Copy Cat

Thesedays, me & my hubby have our very own copy cat. Who else but our daughter Arissa. She likes to imitate whatever we are saying during most of our talks. Actully this act has started a long time ago . A time when she could only make sounds. She will laugh when we are laughing over something. And we will find ourseves laughing at her over this. I guess, maybe she didn't want to be left out from our conversation. But then, there's one thing that always sparks curiousity in me. She always seems to know that we are talking about her. How does she knows? well, all of sudden she make a sound or thesedays, utters some words that relates to our talk. For example, my MIL was telling us how Arissa cried looking for her missing tuk ummi who had gone out shopping. As my MIL was telling us the story, Arissa will chipped into our conversation by making the crying sound. And then she will said that she cried looking for her tuk ummi.

And this Lil Angle will repeat after whatever words we are using. I was in the kicthen washing my hands after dinner one nite when I heard someone calling me Y@ng. My hubby told me then, that Arissa heard him calling me by that name . So Arissa found it amusing that she too wanted to call me by that name.. And I found her smiling when she's saying it.

I have informed my maid to be careful with her words especially infront of Arissa. Just the other day, my maid refered my MIL's chinese neighbour as c!n@. In a matter of 2nds , Arissa who was there with me & my maid, uttered the same word. I quickly told Arissa that is not the right way to refer to that neighbour. Told her to say "uncle" which she went on to repeat it several times... But that vocab of "c!n@" is still in her memory as I heard her saying it yesterday...

When she talks, she will do it with a very strong facial expression. My mom always tells me how she likes seeing the way Arissa talks. The eyes, the head, the hands, all talk when she is talking to you.. Most of the times, u can't help not to be amused by this..

As her vocabs increased tremendously thesedays, the more challenging it is for me & hubby to talk her out from doing or wanting something... Tapi alhamdulillah, she is able to comprehend and understand to what ever we are saying to her so far..

She likes going to the park. Before this,to her any time of the day is a good time to go to the park. But she finally understand that it's not the good time to go to the park when it is a hot day. It will be her telling me " Mama, hot day!. Can not go to park"

All these new development in her makes me eager to know how my next 2nd, 3rd or 4th or 5th child will be. It's a wonderful, exciting, educational and enriching experience watching one child grow from baby to toddler and so forth.

Alhamdulillah. Nothing bad happened to all of us at my office. The tremors that we felt yesterday morning at office was longer than the one in 2004( tsunami time). Me & my collegues didn't evacuate our office when we felt it earlier. All of us was busy chatting the tremors that were happening... We only left our seats once we heard the news that there were big crowds standing outside our building.

While waiting to see if things are safe and clear from any upcoming tremors,me & my collegues felt a big disappointment on how our evacuation officers dealt with this issue. There were no announcement made after we felt the 1st tremors. No announcement were made either to tell us that things are safer after that... No doubts this people had done some many latihan kecemasan . But what did they do when the real things like this happened? NOTHING!!!!..
It was our GMD who had to tell us informally that we can go back to our office. My GMD was standing near our group at that time...

From hubby too, I found out that the TM's evacuation team dealt this things rather badly... The emergency announcement were chaos and not properly done. Hai ya!!!!! I thought ours was bad. Didn't expect the same things could happened to a big giant company like TM.

Gosh! I can’t believe I arrived so early at office today. Reached office at 6.55 am. I left home 5 minutes to 6.30 am . Today marks the 1st day of fasting for Muslim . Hence there’s a new working hours for Ramadan month. Mine starts at 7.45 am & finishes at 4.30 pm. I need to leave early as this one whole month of Ramadan , me& family are staying at my MIL’s house as she is all alone.

One thing that will always comes to my mind during fasting month is my fasting days when I was single and living just about 15 minutes drives from Bangsar. I like doing my terawih at bangsar mosque. It's comfy and the jemaah there are ok too . And maybe too because it's so easy to get there from my apartment. I miss allthis when I moved to my current house where there is a surau nearby. I somehow dont like the nearest mosque ( about 5 km from my house). Something about the mosque ambiance that I rather dont like.

Actually not only that I miss but also my life living at F@j@r!a. Imagine going to MidValley on weekdays nite. Sometimes, when I'm just bored or wanted to have my dinner, I can just easily drive to MV. No traffic & less crowd too there. And there's an LRT station just right behind my aprtmnt .. It was so easy to go to office or anywhere else too. Though I have a car, but I prefer to take the LRT to work... At that time, the traffic near the bulatan pahang was so bad as they were building the monorail.

And we have so many places to go for dating . Hehehe.. So what happened to my apartment theseday..... My office is shaking now..... bergegar! kuatnya goyang !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

selamat berpuasa k...
