Well what's wrong when you look like your age? I am fifty-five so I must behave like fifty-five and look like fifty-five. And I don't understand why people must make themselves look younger than their age. People spent millions to look nicer, we can't make the time stop. Time is never eternal. So what 's wrong with fifty-five. Of course it's all up to you.

I managed to read these two books written in cartoon. I bought them in Gramedia, Grand Indonesia, Jakarta.

Diary of a Whimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney is about the life of a young school boy in US. I finished reading it while still in Jakarta. I think I would like to be a cartoonist after reading it.

But The Colour of Earth by Kim Dong Hwa is about a girl and her widow mother who alked about sex in a very symbolic way. I have this book in Indonesian - Warna Tanah. The drawing is very nice and the trees are drawn articulately.

It seems so sudden the year 2010 is coming to an end. It just seems to me. Well everybody knows this. This coming week is the very last week of 2010. It is full of school meetings and Jabatan meeting.

My father passed away in early January.

The two of us went to Kuala Terengganu, Kuantan, west coast of Johor, the very southern tip of Malaysia then go up to Melaca and Negeri Sembilan. It took us three days and three nights. I enjoyed this trip because we just want to enjoy the time together. This happened in April. Hope we can do it again this coming 2011'

I got my transfer in July from SMKSC to SMKS5.

I went to Bandung and Jakarta in July and again in late November. I went to Haadyai and Songkla in October.

My HEM in SMKSC promoted to Principal in April while my PK in SMKS5 promoted in December this year.

My second son Ucin had his convo in early December where we couldn't witness live.

Everything, I supposed everthing in this world has both sides of its characteristics. Just that to live we have to choose only one at any one moment. We can never get both.
So we simply have to make the correct choice. Sometimes we do make the wrong decision where at that particular moment it seems that the action taken is perfect to you. Later, much later you realise that it was wrong then. But somehow it seems again nothing can be done about it. I suppose it is Allah will then. We have to accept but at the same time we have to make an effort whatever it is.

I seldom had the chance to spend the evening with my kids especially to see a movie. So last night the three of us, Ucin, Ita an d me, went to watch Rapunzel cartoon in Cheras Leisure Mall. Before that we had dinner at Ani Sup Utara with Mak Yan, Pak Itam and Boboy. It is rare to spend some time with your own siblings at this age actually

Ucin Convocation

How to say I felt very very very slighted because both of us were denied admission to witness life Ucin Convocation in UITM this afternoon. After quieing a very long line, we were ushered to a hall next to the main venue. I really felt disappointed actually afterall one doesn't have kids to convo every year. I only have three kids.
I am glad for Ucin achievements.


We went home on Friday night by 1950 flight from Jakarta Soekarno by MAS. Touched down in KLIA at 2250 and we were backed to Bandar Warisan for the night.

The Friday morning we went to Masjid Istiqlal located at Taman Wijaya Kusuma, which is the biggest Masjid in South East Asia. It has five floors. Then we went to Mangga Dua to buy Indon handicraft, comparable to Tanah Abang and lastly we went for our last lunch at 24-hour Garuda.

I bought five books in Gramedia and one in Kinokuniya Grand Indonesia.

Suddenly surprisingly as if we have all the time in the world. We killed the few hours we had in Grand Indonesia again to bite and play the free wifi.
This morning we were in Tanah Abang. I bought a white blouse for myself and him. Later we went to Block M, then to Plaza Indonesia before the Grand.

My time

Just finished our makan in Grand Indonesia Foodstall, Jakarta. It is considered expensive eating here since this is their exclusive shopping mall. We were from Bandung by train at 1130 reaching Gambir Railway Station, Jakarta 1530 local time. We are staying in One Studio Residence, a motel exactly by Malaysian standard which is in the heart of Jakarta.
Posted in Grand Indonesia.
