Nervous Wreck.... nearly....

Son Andy's 1st semester results is out today but he is still IPOH. When he called up his college in Penang to ask for his results, they didn't want to disclose to him. He must go collect it personally but after hearing from his college mates on "who passed" and "who failed", he was in a nervous frenzy.

Then he told me that if he could not get his GPA above 3, his scholarship will be automatically terminate! (oh gosh....Why now only u tell me this? The way u enjoyed yrself during the past few months, I am now more worried and nervous than u...)

He pestered me to call up the college, he said they might "give face" to the student's parent.... Ok, ok..let me try......

"Hello, education unit? May I know the results of my son, Andy so and so....from ......course... u see, we r from IPOH and I just want to know his GPA is above 3 or not... that is all I want to know....." (talking humbly and gently)

Thank goodness, the lady on the other line was very obliging, she said normally they don't disclose the results on the phone but she would check for me on the GPA... (silently, I prayed... prayed... holding breath....)

After a moment pause and some clicking computer sound, she said, "er, Andy.... passed all the subjects and his GPA is above 3."

pheeeewwwww, what a relief......


Till the next semester again... my heart can rest for now... for these few months, at least...

  20. Congrats! So this Sat, you can celebrate in Penang with all the good food!

  21. Nessa, thanks, if he can continue to sustain at this level, i m more than relieved..

    Ladyviral: yeah, actually anyone can call, right, as u said, but i explained to her that she doesnt hv to tell me the details, all i want to know is pass the subjects and above 3 or not..she didnt tell me more than that, it is being ethical la.. hahaa... yes, i believe P n C is very important in some organisations and it is very sensitive too when it comes to certain issues..

  22. oh sorry, Rachel, u r not ladyviral.. something wrong with my eyes just now...

    Pete: terima kasih but no, no celebration.. not a big issue.. haha..

  23. congratets!
    hahaha.. all my mum ever wanted and asked were also ABOVE 3.

    Hahaha.. if get 4 the best la..

  24. Dolly, i dare not expect that.. hahaa.. 4 , i pengsan terus.. above 3, i m very much relieved!

  25. Congrats to Andy! Well done :)

  26. congratulations to andy :D he made his mommy very proud.

  27. krystal, thanks... i dont know his detail results yet, might be ngam ngam passing mark for all...

    Barb, thanks to u too.. i m not that "proud" yet..haha.. goodness knows what results he is getting, but as long as he gets above 3, that is all matters.. the way he spent his nights in hostel, any mum will be worried stiff.. each time i call him, either he said in tv room or watching shows on his laptop.. only during exam time, he told me he was worried.. hak sei ngor..

  28. Well done Andy!! *clap clap clap*

  29. Ooh Well Done Andy! So any celebration? :P

  30. Annie: no need to clap la.. it is not 4 flat ma.. this is just ngam ngam hor. :)

    Cheeyee, it is nothing to be proud of.. i feel so shy already.. as i said just above 3, she said.. this saturday we will know more details.. NO CELEBRATION.. nothing big.. :)

    Sasha: thanks but i m just thankful that the scholarship is still safe ... :)

  31. you dont have to worry much about andy.. i know he can do it.. ;)

    i play alot during my uni days too!

  32. Ken: dont let him see this.. :))

  33. congratz to andy. he must be overjoyed. good luck for the future.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... 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

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
