Taman Kenit

It has a been a while… The last time the whole family travelled was.. Subhanallah, I can’t even remember. Sarah was five or six months kot. We are now having a taste of life with regular activities.

For example, Karate for kids every Tuesday night and Sunday morning. Sunday kuliah at the surau for me. Regular visits to surau for my better half plus morning breakfast with pakcik-pakcik pencen.

It’s nice, serene, peaceful and fulfilling.

But, we do miss being on the road – exploring quaint little towns, indulging in local cuisines, hearing strong and thick local dialects. Seronoknya!!!

The point of this post is actually to announce the creation of our micro-mini garden.

A row of 5 potted plants neatly arranged on a wooden bench. Subhanallah…these 5 species have brightened that barren spot. Imagine if we had 10, 20, 50, 100… silap-silap jadi amazon rainforest.

Persoalannya… bila dah start traveling nanti, siapa nak siram ya? (The bachelors next door?)

Homeschool silly-bus: Stage Performance 101

My job involves speaking and ‘performing’ to kids, teens and sometimes adults.  My sparring partner has always been my better half, Ridz aka Abi.  That’s how we make our living so far, alhamdulillah.

However, two weeks ago, I had two new sparring partners to accompany me on stage.  Hahahaha my backup singers…muahahaha… Muhammad and Musa.

We performed a Readers Theater, “Small Red Fish, Big Blue Fish”.  Musa was the narrator, Muhammad became the small red fish, and yours truly the BIG fish.  The event was Karnival Generasi Berilmu (KGB), held in Kompleks PKNS BBBangi.

dsc005201 It was supposed to be a storytelling corner but I changed the concept to Readers Theater (RT).  This is a popular activity to encourage literacy and love for reading.  Come on…storytelling, sorang je bercerita, RT ramai-ramai atas pentas.  No need to memorize scripts, no need for props and costumes.  Just a script and play with your voice and intonation.  Easy daisy!

The audience (parents & kiddos) and the crowd were sporting and supportive.  I couldn’t resist making them play rock, paper, scissors and sad, mad, glad.  The best thing was…they participated.  Coooooool!!!!
