REVEALING 'one of those days' as a mama-mia...

On this particular morning, I was supposed to print out an essay for my girl the first thing I reached the office..oooppss..shhh... but little did I know, my office pc only support m/soft 2003 whereas she has done her essay in a 2007 version...so how to print??? And the problem is, she has to pass up the essay today ...(afternoon session)

Oh dear, cham...what to do??? Then my colleague told me...why not go cyber cafe to get it printed, but it would cost me a few ringgit $ to do that. I guess it was a good idea that time so I went looking for cyber cafes, never been to one before.... When I entered into 1st one, all I saw, in few rows were schoolboys, still dressed in uniform...(hak sei ngor.)... no need to go school meh?

Anyway, dont be a busybody (K-por), I approached a longhaired man at the counter, "can print m/soft 2007 version here ah?" The way he looked at me, he must be thinking that I m looking for my son there...then he said, "no printer, no printer"

To cut story short, after going in and out of 3 cyber cafes, I finally got the printed out version of her essay, quickly drove home, my hair all flustered, face almost all red becos of the hot- hot sun... upon reaching the door step, my little girl was surprised to see me and gave me a good hug in return...ahhhh... all my trouble going round Ipoh, was fast forgotten at that spur of the moment.. then rushed back to the office in full speed....

Hey, its not the end yet....when I fetched her from school that evening, naturally, I asked her about the essay... passed up already??? She was behind me but I can feel her grinning ..."Teacher said no need to pass up today, Friday first.....hehe...."

Wanna imagine my face???? ..........DON'T......

Take in some deep breaths.........S-L-O-W....LY...

  9. pdf are widely used nowadays. Tell you what, download 'cutepdf writer' from the internet and install onto your new PC. It's better this way so that you won't accidentally edited the Word file when printing.(don't think your kid will like the extra characters too for her teacher!) You cannot edit a pdf file.

  15. I enjoyed running around for the kids some years back...now, they even think we should be relaxing at home instead of trying to follow them...
