Sunday Ramblings

It's a great weekend, so far! Don't you all agree? Yeah, despite the rain for almost the whole day yesterday. Great weather today, not so hot and no rain!

Raimie had a school outing yesterday and off we went to school in the early morning despite it being a Saturday. He got to visit a "kerepek" factory, a nata de coco factory and then, getting all wet and muddy trying to catch a fish (or fishes). 

While Son was away, Mommy and Daddy went to Lake Garden for a run. We were late to join the MPIB My First Run Clinic (we attended it twice, so far) but said hello to Jamie when we bumped into him at the playground. He talked about "choosing your running shoes" on Saturday but we gave it a miss because we were late (and too slow to catch up with the others) and I decided to complete a 10K run around the lake and tackling the inclines of the Deer Park 3 times. Zaini chose to forgo the Deer Park inclines and just ran around the lake instead. 

Collected Zaini's Putrajaya Night Marathon race kit in the afternoon (I got mine couriered) and went to Bukit Bintang afterwards. I dunno. I think I'll enjoy doing a 42K way more than walking around Bukit Bintang. Two hours there and I was absolutely pooped! 

Sunday started early. Woke up at 5.00am but stayed in bed until 6.00am! Ahahah... Made it to Putrajaya at 7.00am. Not too late for a 2 hours' run today. ^^

Started the run with Zaini as he followed my slow-poke pace (3K at 22 minutes slow!) but we parted company after that, as he only wanted to do a 10K and I needed to do a 15K run. Met a number of friendly runners today. ^^

Got back home, shower & laundry time. Brunch. Blog-hopping. Facebooking. Raimie's school uniforms all ironed, thank goodness. All the dishes washed.  Now, this:
Cramming time! Raimie will sit for his year-end exam next week. Must catch-up and do a bit of last minute studying. When Son is studying, Mommy needs to study too as she needs to explain the questions that Son got wrong. Can't just tell him he has a wrong answer without explaining why it is wrong, can we? Oh! My poor brain! Am explaining (arguing, more like) those fractions question that he got confused and answered wrongly as I'm typing this.

  1. Nice! Nice! Mother and son bonding! If only all parents like that - often too busy with work and other things, even social activities. No time for their kids. So sad.

    1. No lah Arthur Oppa. Sometimes not so nice because occasionally there'll be shouting involved. kekeke

      I'm not busy mah... No life so can take care of my ONLY son. Have to understand also, some parents have busy life. ;p

  2. Good luck with your studies and your exam, Raimie! ^^ Todai awaits. :)

    Fractions? Ugh. All I know about fractions is that a fraction of a chocolate is never a good idea, and that you should eat the whole chocolate.

    Did Zaini enjoy his run? When's the next one?

    1. At the rate he's going, he's definitely not Todai material. Can't even do a decent, neatly written study note. hehe...

      I agree. You should always eat chocolates that way. It'll just be messy otherwise. Haha

      Zaini? I think so? We'll be doing our half next week. On Saturday night! ^^

      Let's see whether he'll enter more after that. :)

    2. Good luck to your son! You are good mummy and teacher. I have my dad to thank for teaching me Bahasa Malaysia when I was in Std. 2. The foundation pushed me to do well while my other siblings always almost failed their BM.

      Delete
    3. I never had my parents helping me with my studies. ;p

      Your Dad terer in BM? How come you ddin't help your siblings with their BM ah? tsk tsk ;)

    2. are you sure it's Raimie who has answered wrongly, or it's you yourself?? hahahaha, better get Zaini to double-check~~ :D

      Delete
    3. It's work the other way. Zaini will check and mark the workbooks but any explanation is done by me.

      Anyway, why you say ask Zaini to double-check? Because men is smarter than women? ;)

    1. Me too. My parents once wanted me to work at temporary teacher while waiting for SPM results (I was told by the people at Kem. Pendidikan that I can be a subsitute secondary English teacher with my results. Imagine a 17 y.o. teaching 13 y.o! o.O) but in the end, I refused. I do not like teaching!

      I'm too darn impatient and I absolutely abhor spoiled kids. How? ;)

  10. Nowadays, we cannot just rely on tuition and teachers, parents have to really get involved in kids' study.

    1. We should though. They are our kids and furthermore, nowadays parents are better educated and better equipped to teach our children. Right? :)
