"Selamat Bercuti" and those who are back to work, "Selamat Bertugas". As for myself, I'll be back to work, tomorrow. Hari ni, anak - anak dah mula bersekolah agama dan tadika. Tapi sekolah kebangsaan masih lagi bercuti. Talking about holidays, unlike some of those blogger friends who went balik kampung, but I didn't go balik kampung. Not even for Cuti- Cuti Malaysia. Don't wanna get stuck in the jam at the highway, actually!
Masa aku pegi Cuti - Cuti Malaysia ke Utara tahun lepas, my kids got a new experience. An experience that your kids don't easily get if you are living in town. It's true when looking at my kids. My husband's relative lives in the kampung and he does all the kerja kampung. So, when we visited him and his family during the long school holidays, I caught my kids were looking at a container with questions lingering in their mind. They were questioning each other and I pretended not to notice them.
Then, one of my kids came and asked, "Mama, ada ular banyak la dalam bekas tu!". But I know, they are referring to the ell or orang Melayu panggil ' belut'. Since, they didn't know what it is actually called, so they called it 'ular', maybe because of the size, shape that resemble as 'ular'. Tapi bila dah diterangkan fakta yang sebenarnya, tentang apa yang dilihat oleh mereka tu, barulah mereka faham. Faham akan apa yang dilihat itu bukanlah ular tetapi belut yang boleh dimakan. That is what I called, learning from experience. Kalau tak balik kampung, tak jumpa belut, pasti tak tau apa namanya, dan mungkin mereka akan panggil belut tu sebagai ular!
