Hi there!

Wow...... lamanya dah tak update blog ni.... I didnt even have the chance to wish you all Selamat Hari Raya...... and Maaf Zahir Batin....... Its still not too late eh?

So pada semua rakan bloggers. Helena ucapkan Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, Maaf Zahir Batin jika ada yang terkasar bahasa dan terlepas kata.....


What shud I write? There are many things to share.... from Raya preparations, the Raya itself, how the kids raya sakan, zafry's pool party on the 4th of raya, kids preparing their exams during puasa and after raya....... the results...... our dear angkasawan who just came back yesterday.....

mmm................

I was very very busy during puasa month, hence the loooooonnnnnngg silence. On top of that, I was trying very hard to prepare the kids for the final exams which was held a week before Raya. Kesiannya pulak tengok they all melepek and tak larat nak baca buku after buka puasa. Bila Helena tengok Anastassia lebih cergas selepas sahur, I changed her belajar time after sahur everyday.

However, the mission for the kids to study didnt go as well as planned. Sob... Sob...

Results are out, cant really say much about Anastassia, total marks improved tapi tak tau her position in aliran yet, itu yg critical tu..... Puteri as usual scored highest in every paper...... Zaryff's marks are not that good, his teacher said that since the papers are tough, budak2 tak dapat score.... mmm entahla... or maybe the teacher is just trying to be nice.... nantila tunggu dia dapat no brapa kali ni.

The current topic for the girls sekarang ni adalah school trip. The girls school menang Anugerah Cemerlang Kebangsaan, syukur...... after 3 years of hard work trying to grab that trophy. Zaryf's school also represented the State but since this is their 1st attempt.... ofcourse la tak menang.....

One of the prizes is the hadiah lawatan murid = RM100K. So semua students from Pra-Sekolah to Tahun 6 dapat pergi lawatan....... everything FOC. The kids are looking forward to it.

Zaryff's school was also in the news several times this month, tapi bec of our angkasawan. Zaryff was frustrated as his picture tak terselit kat gambar dalam paper tu..... hehe.... i told him, next time try to stand near your Guru Besar.....

Zaryff turned 8 on October 16, the 4th day of Hari Raya. We had our Open House on that day at the Villa, and petang tu buat a pool party...... The kids had a blast at the pool. And obviously Zaryff enjoyed himself tremendously.....

This weekend there's gonna be a School Concert at the girls school, Puteri will do her Choral Speaking in Arabic.... Anastasia will be in the Choral Speaking in English and she will also take part in an English Drama whereby Anastassia will be the prince, trying to woo Cinderella.

We had a great Raya. Mia came back from college and all the children enjoyed each other's company to the fullest. Takde gaduh2 pun. Walaupun Raya, Mia tetap berkepit with her school books, yela.... exam immediately after Raya.... what to do....

This year was the 1st Raya yang Helena TAK buat apa2 kuih pun..... hehe the kids complained bec they missed my chocolate chip cookies.... tapi what to do, with maid tak ada, keje melambak. And this is also the Raya which we did our shopping last minute!...... We only managed to buy Raya clothes on Thursday..... the day yang malam tu, orang dah nak tgk anak bulan! hehe..... tak pala..... janji semua sempat beli.....


Sorry if my entry kelam kabut...... kepala still serabut lagi ni.....

Finally, ada update. Selamat Hari Raya to you too

RM100k for lawatan sekolah? Banyak tu. U allow your kids to go on school trips? Anak2 I tak merasalah such trips, Papa tak kan bagi permission.

helena said...

Mamamia, the school dpt 100K for lawatan murid, 100K for pembangunan sekolah. Cikgu2 and Guru Besar pun dapat something jugak.... Mmg byk kan 100K, maybe mmg intention to give to ALL students kut.... kalau kasi sikit nanti ada yg tak dapat merasa.

My kids mmg i kasi pergi school trips. Tapi hp no cikgu mesti i simpan la, just in case. Memang la risaukan esp ada one trip which Mia went to Kedah last yr, and scheduled to arrive at 11pm.... risau beb.... masa tu musim hujan pulak tu....

Different students will go to different places. Depending mereka dalam tahun berapa. Anastassia akan ikut tahun 6 and prefects group (yg senior je) pergi Penang for 3 days.

Puteri will be going somewhere much nearer.... OKla tu, if jauh2, confirm ramai parents tak bagi.... sbb kecik lagi.

Hi Helena,

Of course it is not too late too late to wish..so here goes again, 'Happy Eid to you and family and everyone here'.

Now I am of the opinion it's ok kids are not top of the class for as long as they are balanced in their subjects and activities to prepare them for a better working life.

On the 6th Nov my alma mater contacted me if I could participate as a speaker at PD. I agreed..hmm..maybe Helena, I should think of doing this as a business..ha ha. Kidding..

NBK466 said...

Waahhh..musti best lagi grand sambut b'day sekali dgn OH raya.. Salam Aidilfitri buat Helena & family.

Helena said...

rose, zaryff ni as the youngest mmg manja sesangat. Hadiah yg dibeli few days earlier, nak bukak the same day. Tak tahan nak tunggu 16 oct. Menangis2 nak bukak immediately after the trip to Toys R Us. Sigh......

Selamat Hari Raya to u too...

Helena said...

kak sya.... ha'ah sibuk tang mana pun Helena tak paham....

Sebab Helena baca blog kak sya, rasanya kak sya lagi sibuk..... hehe

Helena said...

Suria, hi.... Selmat Hari Raya to u too. Thx for dropping by. :D

Helena said...

Kak Lady.... thx.... vice versa to u too....

Takpelah..... nanti boleh singgah lagi and boleh tinggalkan jejak lagi ok.... hehe

Helena said...

Ruby, hope you had a great Raya. I;m gonna have a hard time trying to slim down again.... sigh.... all those cookies.... are so tempting u know.... hehe

From the moment my kids started std 1, i told them I want them to be tops academically and also tops in koko..... boleh tak? hehe... the most difficult thing though, is to teach them on how to be brave and have a strong personality.... its tough coz my kids are all the shy type.

By the way, just came back from a State Level Arts Competition. Puteri won 4th price. I felt bad for Anastassia as she could not take part in it. (She had to perform at the same function)

So u'll be in PD eh? Which group will be participating? 4th formers? You know what, you shud think of venturing into biz. You have the contacts and PR, and obviously u have the skill. Hey why not? I am serious Ruby, think about it more, ok?

Helena said...

nbk.... grand.... penat siot wei.... hehe.

Penat esp kena check selalu for safety reasons.... anak Helena, Helena tak risau.... anak org2 lain tu....

maklang said...

selamat hari raya....Memang N3 sounds kelam kabut jugak...he..he..

cikdinz said...

anak-anak hari tuh kan tak sihat. jadi pelajaran tu terganggu lah sket. jgn letak harapan yg tinggi pada result kali ni....

Pootz in Boots said...

hello Helena... I thoughyt you have resigned from the cyberspace.... Selamat Hari Raya. So, how were you coping with the kids' final exam (results)?

helena said...

maklang..... hehe penulis tengah serabut... so n3 pun serabut la.....

helena said...

cik dinz... syukur results kali ni tak buat saya sakit dada.... hehe. Akan tetapi result keseluruhan tak keluar lagi, except for Zaryff punya.

eh anak2 sakit awal ramadhan... exam akhir ramadhan... so no excuse tau.

helena said...

pootz.. eh takdenya resign dari blogging.... heeh... was it that long?

Results aliran kids tak keluar lagi. Zaryff punya dah keluar, merosot sikit. Overall ok la... considering buat bulan puasa whereby tak dapat baca buku sangat sebab budak2 flat after school. Yang penting sekali results Anastassia. Maybe today tau kut...
