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! ;)

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

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!
