We're Together Again...

Took AA back from campus at around 11.45am... "ponteng" from office so as to beat the traffic jam. The journey took me more than 1 1/2 hours to and the time I reached office, I was beat.

Took Andy from the bus station around 7.30pm... seeing him getting down from the bus was a blissful feeling... My sons have grown up leh... all staying away from their home. Really looking forward to seeing them coming home after a long break....(2 weeks, long or not?)

In the car, I asked Andy about the PTPTN loan (study loan given to students)....when and what to submit.... I was more anxious than him bec' the loan would be able to "lighten" the burden. It cost around 60K for his course.

"So....when are u submitting the documents for the PTPTN loan?" I asked him...
His reply shocked me... "I don't want to take the loan."
"HUH??? WHY??" My voice grew louder than normal, out of shockness and a bit of "panic"

"I don't want .... , no need to take loan" he continued..., my hands still on the steering wheel, I wanted to give him a piece of my mind, and at that moment, I noticed his cheeky grin....

"Hey.. u mean...u got IT?" my voice softened, prayerfully wishing his answer would he YES...

"Yes, yes, mum....I GOT IT!" HE LAUGHED......

Thank you, God, THANK GOD.......

He got the Scholarship for this course....a scholarship I didn't expect him to get bec' there are many others who have better results than him....

All thanks and praise to our Lord for His amazing grace upon us again and again....HE IS TRULY GREAT!!


  1. mm... I will go through all this when my son grows up... *sigh*


  2. Amen! He is truly a great and loving God. He knows your heart's desire. :)

  3. yes, whatever happens, good or bad, continue to give thanks to Him.. He is always WITH US, IN US AND FOR US ALL....

  4. Congrats! so if go penang treat on him ya? hehe...joking joking...

  5. first son is AA, 2nd son is Andy ar..
    what does AA means??

    Congrats on the scholarship.

  6. God provides Claire. That is really a blessing. Congratulations to your son.

  7. Wow! Claire, now you nonid to scratch your head to pay for his fees. LOL... congrats to you and your family! =D

  8. Well, i bet it's not the JPA (Public Service Dept) scholarship. Anyway, good to know he's got it. Say congratulations to him ok?

    Now, make sure he studies hard. I certainly don't want him to waste funds the same way my students did. Though the money is "free", there's no excuse to take things lightly.


  9. Wow..this must be a very good news to you..praise Lord!!

  10. yes...thank God for His goodness.. yes, hope he really appreciates it and studies hard to keep up with his results... otherwise, it will be wasted and me have to pay back the sum plus 10 percent interest...
    Though it is only for tuition fees, it helps a lot knowing it is not a loan... now all i have to fork out is maintenance...hahaa.. maintaining him, feed him, give him lodging... etc etc...

  11. three cheers for the scholarship! haha

  12. Congrats, praise the Lord! It's really a weight off the shoulders! My daughter's on scholarship too...

  13. congrats to andy!
    AA means Aaron Andy right? =D

  14. wow...then u r richer now. need not to spend so much. Can belanja makan when im back.

  15. hahaha...i know u r going to say that, Chris.. but one thing u didnt know i m going to fork out more than RM700 per month for his food and about u subsidizing a bit???

  16. Wah Congratulations! This is indeed a very good news. I'm sure ur son will "sang sang seng seng" study hard so that you won't need to pay it back. :D

  17. Well done, Andy! Scholarship dun hv to pay back! ;)

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
