Abah was in Mingguan Malaysia today and above his was the photo of Datuk Dr.Zulkifli.
We rarely buy newspapers but bought it today after being alerted by Ummi early in the morning about Abah's handsome picture(her words not mine).
Adik and Abang came home from school,Adik took a look at the paper,read the headlines and quickly and loudly said,
"Abah,is it true that you and your friend are the pembunuh utama kanak-kanak?"
Abah and me was stunned for a minute before we both laughed till it hurt.....Abah was expecting you to be proud of him and were actually waiting for you to say,' "wah...hensem jugak abah ni"...or something along that line....(you said Abah was handsome like a 'pengantin' the last time Abah was in the paper)
Adik,adik....it never occur to us that you would say that.Itu lah,lain kali,jangan cepat sangat nak buka mulut,baca habis2 dulu....Same thing happens in your monthly tests/exams.You always got it wrong because you didnt read the instruction carefully or fully for that matter.You are so bright Adik,please dont let it go to waste because of your carelessness.
Okay,okay...I know you are just a 9 yr old,but still....if I dont remind you again and again,you now what will happen,right Adik?
The article was about pneumococus as a leading cause of pneumonia,meningitis and bacteraemia that kills nearly a million children under five every year worldwide. And the paper was quoting Abah and Dr Zul of course. We were even there with Abah last week when it took place in KL Hilton. Surely you havent forgotten our weekend rendezvous with Abah last week.Abah drove from Ipoh,we hopped on Airasia and then by shuttle bus to KL Sentral all on our own....first time for Mama to handle you kids singlehandedly.Alhamdulillah everything went fine....and the next day,we got to experience a long commuter ride to Rawang which you two enjoyed very much as towards the end of the journey,we had the whole car to ourselves. You have been on commuter and LRT before,in KL and Sydney,but it has been so long that you two become very 'jakun' and excited...hehehe.
Anyway,yesterday was hilarious....
