so whats been happening with you?? Kak Ezza, I hope (if you read this la) you would have bantai-ed (bash!!) that kuranghajau neighbour of yours who had erected a wall between your house and theirs without telling you and also without making sure that your part of the wall is as nice as theirs! My brother had the same thing happened to him but the neighbour was nice enough to paint his side of the house as well..ye lah! This is why we should never have link houses...even one inch apart is enough - if only eh? Actually the majority of us know how to be good neighbours, but the others...
My neighbour pun taklah 100% ok but since we have decided that his bizzareness is cute and can be tolerated, we are ok lah. He is ok except for that one time when a fireant fell from my starfruit tree onto his new granddaughter- He was out with her (and he happened to be showing her the starfruit tree with the overhanging branch) ,and the kerengga fell and bit his cucu (grandaughter) and she yelled her pretty head off and he immediately took an axe to that branch !! and it was so ugly. The auntie told me apologetically what happened. Never mindlah its not my tree, its my landlord's! Still he came over the next day to the house offering to cut the branches properly since the first time round he hacked it violently. ha ha! In his enthusiasm he ter-hacked this indian fragrant flowery creeper that my landlord had specifically brought from India *(gulp!!) ! Now it's semi dead. Ok its totally dead and let's pray the landlord doesn't come and check ! Or else I will also be totally dead!
Yes we are renting the house..ok what...rumah quarters lah kiranye kan....I pun anak askar..as an army officer's daughter I am used to moving and living in a house NOT your own! Only thing is of course you can't tear down that wall to make a bigger room etc etc. ! No, he's not selling! I've asked!
We are now realising how much more savings we have to do - I spoke with this lady who sent her children overseas and you are talking about tens of thousands of POUNDS a year per CHILD..so I have decided since I have 5 children , to just do the best I can with what we have. Some one I know said that he wanted to send his daughter to the UK as he wants to give her the best education. I want that too! (or in Japanese, watashimo!!) but then, if its going to drain us and also deprive the others ...we will consider other options which may ALSO be the best for her...manalah tau..tengok tengok kalau kat NUS (singapore) , or UM (Malaysia) or Indonesia or Russia or France or wherever lah she finally lands-- she gets her dream job ..or meet her dream man (oh silap, that was MY motivation for Uni he he he) . But they have to do well first too!
Ok then you guys have a great morning. I am going to try to finish all those work that I have been sitting on (since I dont like the clients ha ha).
