Good Job Ian!

Papa has been wanting Ian to have superb confidence in front of other people. This is key soft skills to have and hope it will help him later in his life. For this purpose, Papa has registered Ian with Johan Kids Speaking Academy. It was a 10-week session with a finale at Evolve Concept Mall in Subang Jaya. It was a bummer that Papa couldn't watch Ian in action at the finale due to him attending a Board Meeting in Cape Town, South Africa. Ian practiced really hard as there are prizes for top 5 best orators.

Public speaking is not really Ian's cup of tea, but he certainly had that confidence. One of the things that he did for 800 roblox points.

Eating Watermelon Alone!

Mama did not cook any dinner and she didn't even bother to cook anything for Papa yesterday, but Papa felt hungry, so Papa ended up eating the big water melon that he bought at Hero Supermarket alone. I guess she leveraged on the loophole that it is NOT an obligation for a wife to cook for the husband. I guess Papa needs to be bigger than that. But the right remains with Papa to ask her to cook as it falls under the definition of "mentaati suami". But Papa just can't be bothered. He just wanted to be alone and focus on his work (Bumblebee).

The thing is Papa feel alone and has always felt alone. A man who no longer expects anything from his wife, even anything on his birthdays.

Something happened yesterday. Papa tried to remind Mama on how to be smart on time management so that you wouldn't waste time going to the supermarket twice or weekly just to buy things that you have overlooked to buy the week before. You should plan yourself better so that you can make use of your limited 24hour time better. She didn't accept it. She tried to play on other issues. She prefers to remain unenlightened and kept her current ways. She is as stubborn as they come.

Papa already "pasrah".. Let her hanyut in her own way.. There is nothing Papa can do anymore to help or it will backfire on Papa.

This boy is just like Papa.. trying to eat the whole watermelon without fully cutting it.

Alone in Sudan..

It was a big task ahead of Papa as soon as he landed in Khartoum, Sudan last Tuesday. Nevertheless he felt confident that he would be able to get through whatever is going to come his way. It was also a new experience for him getting an M&A project to Completion. Being acutely aware of this, he took all precautions necessary to make sure things would go smoothly. He and his team arrived two days early to make sure things are ok particularly on the documentations. It was the most stressful next few days and he felt alone. Even Mama was not there for Papa. To cut story short, the transaction was concluded successfully.

He made friends and felt closer to his business counterparts. Now that everything is almost over, he already thinking about leaving for home. He just can't wait to see me and Jarip at home because we know that he loves us so much.
