I couldn't find a title really. But the story has nothing to do with anything blue except perhaps for Mia's mengaji costume.
This week is the start of the mengaji ("Quran recitation") class for all the children of our little Community here. 5 of the spouses of the students here kindly volunteered to teach/guide the children - Thank you kindly to them! Bless their kind hearts. And just a nice coincidence to the coming fasting month. Most of the classes started on Monday. Danish was assigned under Ustazah Zulaikha (she is an Ustazah back in Malaysia accompanying her husband doing his PhD in hmmm.... I am not quite sure what but whatever it is it is something to do with Biology & Chemistry sort of thing... ) and Mia under Cikgu Ina (a teacher back home - Mia normally call her Auntie Ina but for the mengaji session, conveniently change it to Cikgu Ina). Hakim has yet to start his class - his Ustaz Mahiz (a Lecturer back home) has yet to set a schedule. Anyway, so far, only Danish has faithfully went to class since Monday. Mia, though excited - not only for the trip to Auntie Ina's house but more importantly, she will be seeing her beloved friend Balqis - cannot make it on Monday as she is scheduled for a dental appointment (which she is also excited about as there will be stickers afterward!) Imagine how frustrated she became when a her appointment was brought forward to the next day!
Anyway, she was so excited to go to her mengaji session on Wednesday. I have never got the chance to start her yet. So, that morning there was just enough time to print some Arabic letters and briefly went through the letters with her once before Dina (another beloved friend) knocked at the door - it was time to go.
She was so excited when she came back. Yesterday, I asked her to get ready early. And so we have time to take some snaps of her in her mengaji gear. :-D
Excuse the big head scarf (as she called it)! It's Mum's
Waiting by the window so she can see when Dina arrived to go Mengaji together
A little message to my family : To Arifah, congratulation on the offer. Hopefully things will go smoothly and you will be here in no time! :-D And to Marhamah, Fatanah & Ain - take great care of yourselves, ya :-D Do send me photos of Muaz & Mikhail! And to Farihan, have you decided yet? And Aie! Are you coming over for the presentation? And Alfi, you sure you don't want to sample the landscape & the gardens here? Prayers to Allah always! :-D
