It's full house again




The first quarter of the year is almost gone. Time move too fast and shifting smoothly unnoticed to the untrained eyes each remaining days. The popular axiom of time can fly is almost true, for mortal being like us can only match the warp-speed of time only in our dream. Many love to dream and prefer to remain in those paradoxical domain as long as possible, denying the reality of life. Dream becomes the safest haven to procrastinate for some and fail to acknowledge the fact that time waits for no man.

For me these past few primordial months had been quite a hectic phase of life, trying to reconfigure the next course of my divine journey and set my next epic life voyage on the right track. Numerous brainstorming sessions and past-midnight mind-bending exercise lately had burdened the tiny little organ in my head. Too much pressure and lateral squeezing searching for elusive ideas had reduced that special organ into a pea-size object. The brain however, undaunted by sheer exhaustion rebound and sprung back to its normal size after some heavy indulgence with nasi lemak and teh tarik the next morning.

At the same time, all of a sudden and out from no where, school holiday came knocking on the door sooner than I'd expected. I feel as if it was yesterday I sent my eldest son to his college and yet now the college had sent him back home to spend his ample time overindulged himself in some of the forbidden activities that were considered a taboo while in the college. Playstation is one of them. In a way though, it is good for him to let some steam off after spending few months in his smelly dormitory - just like my brain when it constipated.

It is this time of the year, we as a parent feel very contented and happy to see the house is full again with cheerfull souls and lively spirits. The constant shouting and laughter among the siblings merely add more color to the environment. The only problem however is to decide how to make their time spent more productive and less routine each days, while at the same time not to eliminate the element of fun. Some activities did not go according to plan and some had to be re-planned.

One thing I am quite sure of, as long as the kids are well-fed and I don't forget to pay the ASTRO subscription, they won't complain very much.

DrSam said...

CAHAYA,
Rancangan tergendala buat sementara waktu. pusing-pusing kat area Kl dan kawasan sewaktu dengannya aje.

JohnJenin,
That was the original plan le pakcik. But other things cropped up and I have to postpone the trip to other convenient time.

Doc,

Wah, ramai yer balik bercuti:) Dulu kami juga begitu, cuti sekolah penuhlah rumah ayah.Kini ayah saya terbalik, dia pula yang pergi bercuti waktu cuti sekolah ke rumah cucu-cucunya :)
Esok siap nak turun ke Putrajaya nak tengok belon udara panas dengan cucu katanya!

DrSam said...

aliff muhammad,
Salam. Betul tu. Bila dah beranak pinak ni, dah ayahanda pun dah lama pencen, kerap juga mereka datang menjenguk cucu-cucu mereka di KL.

Belon Panas...bagus tu! Saya tengok website ada beberapa belon yang menarik dan unik tahun ni.

madam gold said...

True enough Doc...astro bill kena update,play station must be functioning and one more thing broadband line kena ok...no complaint..
So kita pun kena negotiatelah...they do their schoolwork first...then we allow them all to this techno...

DrSam said...

madam gold,
kids are getting very good at negotiation skill these days. Kalah UN negotiator. These days they have many-many things to bargain with us.

Faisal Admar said...

drooling drooling.

my eyes wide opened at nasi lemak and teh tarik.

i don't know why i can easily attract to food rather than anything :P

tomorrow gotta get them!

mizzyN said...

school holidays is the time to laze around and not care about school. So Dr, you are definitely on the right track by making sure the flow of astro and food is smoooth. Happy holiday to the family.

DrSam said...

xiinam,
bergurau senda itu amalan mulia :)

Selamat bercuti cikgu!

yohteh,
dok ghot cchetong sunggoh bandor KT...jeng sokmo kalu musing cuti. Roti cicoh jeng sekaya sedap sunggoh yohteh!

Faisal Admar,
I can understand your fascination on food especially after a night workout in badminton court and a hot shower.

mizzyN,
The kids apparently managed to 'polarise' me as well with their lazy attitude during this school holiday. And food...sinful indulgence :)

@xiM said...

speaking of which,baru teringat astro bulan 3 masih belum bayar..haha

timne really fly
time wait for no man..

Zendra-Maria said...

Savour the moment, Dinda... one fine day you might wake up and realise that you're back to just two of you... which is not too bad either :)

Sir Pök Déng said...

Yeah, as long as Astro is working fine, they won't complain. Still remember their tag line, "macam-macam ada!"

I wonder where had the old man in the advertisement gone. Yes, time flies. They do have wings to tell their everyday chores to the Almighty.

full of love's house.. bestnye..

Temuk said...

Hi Dr Sam
Cuti sekolah gives us the opportunity to be closer with our loved ones. Cuti sekolah semasa kanak-kanak di kampung, pening tak tahu nak buat apa. Then as a papa, headache came, planning what to do with the kids during their school break, every session/year. And now as a grandpa, there's headache too, thinking of what to do with the grandchildren when they come over during the cuti sekolah. And certain plans would certainly require some RM$. Salam bahagia!

DrSam said...

@xim,
now I should collect some commission from Astro for reminding our blogger friends to pay their dues :)

Zendra-Maria,
I am Kanda...I am...savoring these sweet moments till the day my house become a nest for two love-birds.

Sir Pok Deng,
I too sometimes got mesmerized and intoxicated by the varieties of eye-catchy programs in ASTRO.

macam-maca adaaa...

laki cikgu kimia,
rumahku syurgaku :)

DrSam said...

Temuk,
Glad to hear and learn from your valuable experience. Good for me to prepare mentally when I reach that golden years. Thank you en. Temuk.

Fly said...

DrSam said...

Fly,
Salam cikgu Fly. Cuti sekolah tak kemana ke?

Faisal Admar said...

astro or internet? :D

LiFe Is BeAuTifUl LyRiC said...

Sekejap jer first quarter dah nak abes..
I like cuti sekolah.. boleh keluar lambat sikit gi keje sbb jalan tak jam..

DrSam said...

Faisal Admar,
I think both have their fair share to my kids liking.

Life is beautiful lyric,
pergi kerja boleh buat stail F1!
