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...

    by right..the college didnt do the right thing cos its confidentiality. No integrity!!!

    yes although i know u r anxious... sorry la. i work in a similar organisation n i m very particular cos anything leak out unnecessary may impose a lot of implication one..

  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. :)

    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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
