Staring at the wall - Part 5

"I for one would not be interested to supervise students who do not understand the value of experience and depth and breadth of knowledge. It is both insulting and demeaning on the reason of U** have no equipment and expert." - Profesor XYZ -

This is what happened when you tell a brutal truth. Sometimes honesty is not the best policy. Try lying.

Brothers and Sisters

Happy new year everyone!

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. ~ Chinese Proverb

It is good to share a good thing. A good thing to share with avid readers. A great booksale by Big Bad Wolf held once a year at South City Plaza near UPM and the average price for the book is roughly RM8, yes RM8 and the most expensive is RM20 which is definitely worth a bargain.

I tell you, it was epic- the sale. We off to KL at 8 sharp in the morning with reheated pizza for breakfast and sausage for Iris and breast milk for Iesha and we grabbed the books at 10.30 AM. People brought the luggage size elephant and they went manic over cheap books. It wasn't easy with the two small girls, but I tell you the cheap books really drove me nuts.

We did two rounds for book hunting since one was not enough; we only stopped for lunch and we used the last ounce of our very energy to grab the books. Poor Iris and Iesha they had to bear with my craziness but don't worry guys, you'll be thanking me for books are the treasure for the years to come.

I know it is too late to share it now, but don't worry bookworms, do believe in constant prayer that the Big Bad Wolf will do the sale again twice next year. They have a bookstore, BookXcess located in Amcorp Mall. They have Facebook too - try search BookXcess. (I am abusively using my husband's FB just to make sure I do not miss a bargain.)

We managed to get 68 books for only RM600. And I am so convinced that they will cost me more than RM2 K at the other bookstores. So here is my favorite snap of 2010.

The girls', mine and Bapak's.

Congrats Anya!

Graduation day is tough for adults. They go to the ceremony as parents. They come home as contemporaries. After twenty-two years of child-raising, they are unemployed. ~ Erma Bombeck

Graduation is a very hot day. ~ Iesha Aafreen

Graduation day is a day when you can have fully access to Mummy's milk, anytime, anywhere. ~ Iesha Aafreen

Graduation is a very boring day and a time to sleep with fury. ~ Iris Adeena

At commencement you wear your square-shaped mortarboards. My hope is that from time to time you will let your minds be bold, and wear sombreros. ~Paul Freund

Your schooling may be over, but remember that your education still continues. ~ Unknown

I love my big families. ~ Shahida

A graduation ceremony is an event where the commencement speaker tells thousands of students dressed in identical caps and gowns that "individuality" is the key to success. ~Robert Orben

Anyway, congrats Anya! You sure be someone!
