Celebrations.

Hey folks! There are celebrations going on today (31 August 2011).
1. Malaysia's 54th National Day
2. First day of Eid-Fitr in New Zealand (second day in Malaysia)
3. My Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes it is my 22 birthday.

Well. this year's birthday reminds me of how old I am and how far I've grown in life. It was saddening that I am not celebrating any of these celebrations at home with my beloved family. However, I had the whole school singing 'Happy Birthday' to me. The whole Year 5 and 6 were non-stop wishing me Happy Birthday, I was given a Principal Birthday Certificate and better still, the whole staff room sang me Happy Birthday as well. How awesome was that!!! I would say that today's Epic moment of my life in 2011!!!!! Loving it and will treasure it till death for sure :)

Later that day, my mum called and we talked and I said, "Thanks Mum for giving birth to me". Really I am grateful for having her as my mum. She's the best!!

Raya this year was not as fun as it used to be. But we were celebrating it our way. All six of us brought our own dishes (biscuits and etc.) to school and threw the school's stuff with a little feast!

And yes,I can't thank God enough for giving me the opportunity to work with such a nice school!! The environment is awesome! The teachers are lovely and so do the students. I really wish that I could be one of the students studying there. But, deep down my heart, I would always be happy for having school at my previous schools.

Awww...I am pretty much aware that my writing this time around is a little bit unorganized. Initially, I wanted to write about the celebrations and yet I also wrote some about my experience at this New Zealand Primary School I am going for two weeks. Well, it supposed to be our holiday, but since the schools are not having their holidays yet and we have to have our practicum before we left the country for good, we have no other choice but to sacrifice our holidays for a priceless experience. Ole!!!

Before I ended my writing with Mr. Period, I would love to say trillions of thanks to those who wished my birthday today. Hope you all will be blessed in life here and after. Amin!

S.O.R.R.Y

I know very well that before I started with anything else, I should first apologize for not writing anything for a while now. Actually, I did write but it was either in my Tumblr or Facebook account. So, it is always a wise decision to follow these account as well :) Anyway, we are in the 17th of Ramadhan already. Feel like we just started fasting yesterday, right? Anyway, regarding fasting, I would love to congratulate my Norwegian friend (LARS) for his determination to try fasting for the whole month. Hopefully he will be blessed and live a happy life during and after Ramdahan. It is good to know and witness how non-Muslims trying to understand our belief and yet we refused to see it for ourselves. Ironic right? With 17 days over, there are 13 remaining more days before all Muslims will be celebrating Eid-Fitr. Frankly speaking, this year will be my second year celebrating it without my family. It would be saddening yet that is the sacrifice that I should be able to withstand. The celebration itself won't be as extravagant considering the it will be during my practicum sessions in New Zealand primary schools. Still, that should not be the excuse for me not to celebrate it right!

and yes, if you guys are well informed before, Auckland has never being snowing after the first fall on 1939. Surprisingly, miracle happened on last 15 of August - it was actually SNOWING in AUCKLAND CBD!!!! You can check the video which I posted on my Youtube channel (xchips99) as well as my Facebook page.

Well, that's all for now. I have to start revising for there tests which I will be having next Tuesday and Wednesday. Guess it will be hell of a week. Anyway, wich me luck and take care peeps!
