Maryam and her phone..

Scene 1:

She was playing with her toy phone one morning, so I asked her

"Maryam tengah nak call siapa?"
"Maryam tak call sesiapa. Maryam tengah nak check email.."

Scene 2:

She was busy talking with someone over the phone, inviting her imaginary friend, Daisy to come along with her..as per video below =)



Oh yes, she got the phone when I was shopping for a gift for a newborn of a friend of mine. As usual she will also get her present whenever we shop for other people gifts.

Jalan-jalan Perth: Crabbing time!

*Stuck in my draft for quite sometime, now can only be published due to time constraint and busy with some other things*
We went to Mandurah, as early as 5.30o'clock in the morning. Oh yes, during that early morning on Boxing Day! hehe..Hoping that we will able to finish before the malls open at 10am. hehe..kononnya nak pergi berboxing day la kan. (Oh yes, most of the shopping malls here opens at 10am during the boxing day. Kalau di UK dulu, mahunya nak keluar pukul 9pagi, takde apa dah yang tinggal. Semua orang sanggup beratur seawal 3-4 pagi just to ensure they are the first to enter!

Memang tak sempat la kan nak balik bersiap for boxing day pukul 10, sebabnya ketam baru nak mengena umpan masa tu! Memanglah kami tak mahu lepaskan peluang la kan. hehe..so, akhirnya kami bergerak pulang jam 11.30 lebih kurang.hehhe...

Penuh bersemangat masing2 menuju ke destinasi penangkapan ketam



Bergaya di dalam khemah, yang dapat dibina tegak sekejap lepas tu tumbang


Crabbing bawah jambatan sahaja kali ini


Excited
Hasil tangkapan..salah satu baldi yang ada..
tu pun banyak ketam yang terpaksa dilepaskan dengan rela hati..


Awal-awal penangkapan..yang akhirnya jumlah keseluruhan 15 ekor sahaja..


Beranilah nak pegang bila ketam tu dah pengsan..

Oh ya, kebanyakan ketam yang diperolehi untuk harus diukur. Ini kerana anak-anak ketam, yang panjangnya tidak melepasi kriteria wajib dilepaskan semula. Ini peraturan wajib ya..kalau tidak, mahu kena saman oleh ranger kalau kena tangkap. Denda? AUD400-AUD700 kalau tak silap! Baik tak payah nak ambil risiko semata-mata kerana ketam ya..ehhe...Dan ada banyak lagi peraturannya, ketam yang mengandung, selain anak-anak ketam memang wajib dilepaskan semula ke dalam air. Dan seorang terhad untuk 10 ekor hasil tangkapan sahaja ya!

Tapi memandangkan kami datang 4 kereta, so dalam 20 orang - sah-sah lah average sorang dapat seekor la kan.huhu..

Kalau terasa nak makan ketam lagi, memang kenalah merajinkan diri untuk pergi crabbing selagi musimnya masih ada. Kalau nak harap pergi beli kat kedai seafood, alamatnya lupakan hasrat di hati nak ketam!

I sometimes feel that it is a difficult to get those Islamic books in Malaysia. Oh not the normal general Islamic books but those educational Islamic books for children. But Alhamdulillah, managed to get some of those and proudly want to share it with all of you- whom maybe on the same boat like myself on don't know where to get one.
 
If you are interested to get all or some of those, please feel free to browse through the "Kids corner" here =) The latest is the Allah Gave Me series books and more to come insyaAllah. Look out the space for more soooonnn! =D

Maryam on one lovely Sunday...

In the morning, I went out for some groceries alone with her while hubby stayed at home. We shopped as quickly as possible, since there were plenty of works that need to be done before 2pm. Got mostly what I want, and off we went to the cashier.

"It's $18.25 maam.."
"Err..."

My debit card was not in the purse!!!!!!

Korek punya korek pun still tak jumpa! Oh no! Dah lah memang jarang bawa enough cash. Sling bag yang kecil tu dikorek sehabis mungkin, peluh dah mula menitik. Cashier dah pandang semacam..Customer pun makin ramai beratur kat belakang...Aduhai, serius tak cukup..

"Err...can I cancel some of the item? I don't think I've enough cash"

******malu yang teramat*******

"Yeah, no problem. It's $16.50.

Alhamdulillah, cukup cash! Lepas bayar, hati mula rasa tak tenteram. Siapalah pulak yang nak curi debit card aku ni..Sambil mulut ni membebel2 cakap kat Maryam, kad bank ummi hilang...huhu..

Suddenly Maryam asked me..

"Kad bank ummi yang kaler pink tu ke?
"Aah, tak tahu lah siapa ambil..."

I was thinking to go and ask the cashier at the Oriental Market next door since the last time I used the card was there. But when I saw there were many people at the shop, I just waited outside the shop because I do not want to create chaos there..malu pun iya..huhu..

Maryam then innocently continue the conversation..

"Oh, kad pink ummi tu Maryam pinjam semalam buat beli barang kat kedai Maryam"

I was like.."ha? Maryam ambil kad bank Ummi? Sekarang kad tu ada kat mana?"

"Ada kat rumah, dalam handbeg Maryam.."

Memang tak terkata apa. Nak marah pun tak jadi, nak gelak pun iya! I remember she was playing with her immaginary friend, Daisy shopping for books and DVDs in the living room.

I quickly dialled my husband's number, and memang confirm the card was safely in her handbag!!!

Off we went back home. Nak continue shopping for other things kat Oriental Market pun terbantut since no money in hand.

Dalam kereta, while driving..memang kena lecture sikitlah Maryam. Huhu..I talked to her nicely that the bank card was not supposed to be taken off my purse. It's not a toy, bla bla bla..

She listened to me and setuju je dengan what I said. She then said,

"Maryam ada ambil duit ummi jugak tau"

"Ha? Duit yang mana, banyak ke?"

"Dua je, dua coins"

Sambung lagi lecture, nasihat bla bla bla..serius tak sangka dia boleh ambil the bank card and buat main. Sebab memang tak pernah dibuatnya sebelum ini.

Sampai je rumah, Maryam terus buka handbeg dia dan keluarkan my cards. Yup, one is my debit card and the one is my Airasia BIG royalty card. Hmm..the second card ada tulis BIG sebesar-besarnya, so she thought the card is for BigW shopping card. heheh..tu yang dia bawa main tu..huhu...

Reaksi Ayahnya? Ketawa je memanjang tengok karenah anaknya..huhu..

It's 5th day now!

It's almost a month without any entries.

And today, may be better than yesterday and the day before - our fifth day in the new Masihi year 2012.

About a month to go before Maryam started her new era, kindergarten year insyaAllah. She will turn 4 this year insyaAllah. And really looking forward for it and really excited to meet her new teacher and friends.

But for me, I've mixed feelings. Of course, am happy for her; as she will starts socialising, learning around with friends. But deep down in my heart, I don't want her to grow so fast! Huhu..I just missed her being a baby, cuddling in my arms, breastfeeding etc. Oh, I really missed those moments. It's not that I can't do that ie cuddling and manja2 with her (obviously not bf at this age!), but it's just she's grown up now. She a big girl now insyaAllah,  and hoping to cope well with her school, challenges ahead of her. May Allah guide her and us to the right path ALWAYS and wherever we go. Ameen.

Will story again on her new school later insyaAllah.
