Tiring! That’s all I can say. Today, 10th July 2012, every schools throughout Malaysia is compulsory to organize a “Senamrobik” (aerobic) 1Murid, 1Sukan & 1Malaysia. It’s a new education policy popularized since last year and of course as Malaysian schools are merely the executors of the acts governed by The Authority, we have to oblige.
Ahmad Shahrin bin Haniza. My pupil who went missing from Serendah, Hulu Selangor but reportedly is found at Sungai Petani, Kedah. Mystery still revolve but what’s important he is found unharmed. Alhamdulillah. – Courtesy of Qayyim.
It was nice. Led and choreographed by creative Kak Rozita Kasmin, the entire school performed the aerobic routines though I have to say that the boys were not really keen. Fresh from the Sports Day, we have to do “Senamrobik”. Oh, well…. “Saya Menurut Perintah”, mate! On whole, although it was tiring but it was good for our limbs and sinew, to be honest!
Anyway, I’ve managed to catch the latest flick by Disney-PIXAR entitled “Brave”. It is a story about a Scottish princess who defies the odds and very bold in an unconventional way. When her wishes to “transform” her mother was taken LITERALLY by a demented-funny witch, she had to set things right. On whole, the movie has uncanny similarities with “Emperor’s New Groove” with the way the characters were illustrated on dialogue basis; especially the antagonistics are depicted in comical ways; still the plot is somewhat loose. There is something missing with the storyline – NOT the usual Disney-esque. STILL, I adored the BEAUTIFUL and scenic landscape of Scotland depicted. And the Celtic musical score by Patrick Doyle is BREATHTAKING as well as the unique accents of Scottish & Eire.
The film make me wanting to go to Scotland & Ireland. Oh, the fetish of kilts and bagpipes and tap-dancing! LMAO! On whole, the essence of the film talks about LOVING your mother although at times you dread the nags and acidic words BUT mothers always meant the best for us. Mothers know best. Always be there for us. So touched. *Sniff*
Talking about mothers, I have two events to sum up. Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS to my sister for having a baby in the womb! She’s a pregger! Oh, my… I wonder how my nephew, Rifqi reacted… I mean he has already got accustomed as the only pearl-in-the-family for almost 6 years. I am just happy for my sister. Alhamdulillah……! (,”) BUT, I hope our vacation WON’T be hindered by the pregnancy….! PLEASE! (,”)
Another story is about a boy who is quite close and friendly with me in my school who also happened to be the son of my senior colleague in school. He was reported LOST from the house at 9.30 a.m. He was alone in the house because he was having fever but the mother needed to go to work. He was already accustomed to being alone and what’s more, quite a sturdy and big boy to take care of himself. When the mother came home, the house was found to be in messy situation – drawers searched and loss of money. Gate sprung open!

Police reports were lodged. As teacher, I was shocked and restless when I heard that! That boy was undeniably a dramatic boy BUT quite intelligent. Where could he be??? The mother is a very calm person. I have fullest salute to her. She remains calm. I always have great admiration of her. She always very cool and prim and proper and her aura is impeccable as an educator. I always ask her a lot whenever I am in doubt. On the other hand, the boy also was quite friendly with me too as I have taught him when he was in Year 4 and also in Night Class in Year 6.
I felt restless. I needed to do something. Physically, I am no good contributor. But I do realize that I have presence in virtual world especially in Facebook. People respond quite frequently to my statuses and comments. Hence, I decided to do the circulation via Facebook when I saw one of my pupil’s mother initiated the same thing. At first, I was in doubt (I don’t want people to say I am being “OVER”; but then I thought about the boy and I just determined myself!); I composed a few circulations to be tagged and SHARED in Facebook and Alhamdulillah, the responses were satisfactory.
I am very thankful and grateful to those Facebook acquaintances who have SHARED the plight. I even recited Yassin and pray for the boy’s safety. People say that the prayer of a teacher has its own power….
The power of Doa & Tawakallah.
This morning, the whole school recited Yassin; hoping that the wound will be alleviated. ALHAMDULILLAH, it’s just God’s miracle. Around 11.00 o’clock, the mother SMS-ed to one of the clerk saying that the boy has been FOUND in SUNGAI PETANI, Kedah!!!!!!! Relieved at first but GOOSEBUMPS arose!! From Selangor to Sungai Petani, Kedah????? Where on earth this will be leading to??
According to the mother, the boy was found sleeping at Sungai Petani toll. The motive is yet to be discovered. Oh MY GOD! Alhamdulillah! The whole school was so relieved with that. Seems like ALLAH SWT has bestowed blessings upon the prayers of the teachers and also the parents.
Kudos to Malaysian policemen!
Whatever it is, as a teacher, my heart is so relieved to hear that the boy has been found! Thanks to all Malaysians who have contributed and also those who have SHARED the news via Facebook. And also to the Malaysian policemen, KUDOS!!! Heartiest and warmest thanks to them. Hopefully, the boy is in good condition.
Shahrin with Fahmi. 2 years ago in 2010 when the school organized a trip to Malacca. From my own lense.
Sir hopes Shahrin will be in good condition. Amin.
