The Unveiling of Montessorimum.com

January 10, 2007

It has been 2 weeks since I got my domain and I have been working on it for almost a week, since the link was and is stil so slow, that’s why I took so long to work on it.

I really cant wait anymore, as I have not much posting here since last week. Here come’s the opening ceremony of my new blog. There are still some final details that I’m looking into and I guess it still isn’t that stable (maybe because the link is slow???) , anyway here is it … my new blog hosted in my own domain…

VOILA!!!

http://www.montessorimum.com/

My old posts will still be remained here while I figure out a way to export it to my own domain.

Just realize on the 29th Dec 2006, my blog was ranked 94th on the blog of the day for wordpress.com

Ha..didn’t think I can even make it into the 100th. Motivate me to blog more….but mean time will still concentrate blogging here…till the link is up and the speed of accessing the net is back to normal… I will move my direction to my own domain which I’ve decided to temporary abadone it at the moment…as no point wasting time working on it and get frustrated each time I try.


Feasting Through To Welcome The New Year

January 3, 2007

The past weekend we have been feasting through to welcome the new year (didn’t take any pictures of the food!). Gone back to Subang on Saturday afternoon. Had dinner at Sudu Restaurant at Hilton KL.

Sunday night, new year’s eve. Dinner at Rasa Sayang Restaurant at Eastin Hotel, PJ. Had sharks fin soup, Lap Mei Rice, Goose feet with sea cucumber and mushroom and other dishes… This is the night I started dating my hubby 6 years ago, we became a couple after some crazy drinking session at Bangsar. 🙂

Sunday afternoon, I also managed to go dating with hubby. We went to the cinema to catch a movie without the kids. It has been such a long time since we last went dating.

After dinner we went back to SIL’s house to countdown. It’s the family tradition to have something sweet at the strike of 12 midnite to welcome the new year. As to symbolize having a sweet and good year ahead. We popped champange and had choc. Pity can’t see any fire work at SIL’s place. The kids stayed up late that night.

Brought my parents out for lunch @Sushi King Tesco on Monday morning.

After dinner @Bangsar, we went to Le Meridian to have our dessert and enjoy the live band. They were out of cakes at Le Meridian, so we have to “tar pau” from Hilton to Le Meridian as there’s no live band in Hilton that night. Both WH and JS having a good time dancing to the music….I think they will be a dancing kaki when they reach their teens.

First Day Of School

January 3, 2007

JS started her new school term today.

We have been doing lots of prepotaries due to this.  We have brought her to the school no less than 5 times ever since we have decided on which school to sent her, and I had made many trips with her on the route to the school. We talked alot about school, what to expect and what she will do.  I even made up some stories on what fun activities she will get to do in school but not at home, but again I realize the more I talked about, the more anxious she feels. If I neglect the topic at all, it will be too traumatized for her to adapt to the change. Moderation is still the key. For the past few weeks, there were a few times she just cried out of the blue. She would go ” mummy, I love you so much. I miss you alot” , I know how she feels. The seperation anxiety. She’s anxious of leaving me and attend school. Schooling to her seems to be another milestone, because we have been talking about it alot. I told her if she loves me , then she have to do me proud instead of crying and give me a hard time. I told her she has to be brave and bold so that she can be teacher’s assistant/class monitor. (One thing I learned is that as parents, we should not exagerate how fun schooling will be, because once the child started school and real life set in and doesn’t meet up to his/her expectation, he/she will be very dissapointed and lost trust in their parents).

Yesterday I got her to pack her school bag , asked her what snack she wants to bring along and got her to prepare it. She packed a small soft toys in the school bag ( her security blanket) , a family photo (she wanted me to print a bigger size one, but I get her to use back the one she brought to school last year), she had got hubby’s and my phone number with her.  Brought her to cut her hair and also bring out the uniform and get the maid to iron it.  We slept early last night, and when I put her to bed, she sobbed.  All I could do is again to give her alot of reassurance.

Put her to sleep early, but she kept talking and crying, only doozed off at 10.30pm. Woke up early myself at 6.30am, I’m not an early bird, more of a late owl. Have to get use to this routine. JS cried once I woke woke up at 7am, saying that she doesn’t want to go to school. Gave a bottle of milk and then clean her up and changed her. When I put on the uniform on her, she cried even harder. We left home at 7.30am. She cried all her way to school, but once there she’s alright.

There’s no formal class today. More of a registration day for parents to pay up and school ends early at 10am and it’s not compulsory to stay, nevertheless, I let JS stayed there and I went to do my marketing. Picked her up at 10am, and she was happy, running about playing. I had paid up front last month. RM30 for registration, enrolment + uniform + first month school fees…altogether paid RM630.  The montly fees is RM150. Lucky got SIL#1 sponsored JS’s schooling. Used back the old school bag and stationaries, and no need to buy new shoes as they are required to take off their shoes in school, save up a bit on that.

After my marketing, I sent WH to the Montessori school near our house, just to check if their playgroup has started. We stayed for an hour, and WH refused to go home. He wants to go school very much. He’s a very quiet observant boy and he’s bolder than his sister. He can concentrate quite well on working with the materials. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough headcount to start the play group. The school needed a teacher. I was very tempted and keen to take up the offer, but I can’t commit myself because I need to chauffeur JS to and from school. I wish I can make better arrangement on JS’s transportation to school, then I can take up the offer as a Montessori teacher and put what I ‘ve learned in practice.

After school, JS and me chatted alot. She said she’s happy and having fun at school and she has made me proud by not crying. Yes indeed I’m proud of her behaviour today at school, she didn’t cry at all and she went to play by herself quite fast and didn’t cling to me as she would do usually, but I know she hasn’t totally settle in, as she still can’t make up her mind and told me she wanted to stay home tomorrow but the next instant she would say I can come home to cook lunch for her after that only pick her up from school. However I can see that overall she’s happy today (maybe there’s no formal class yet, what she did today was just play). I hope very soon she will develop a sense of belonging to her school and make some friends.  The mixture of difference races of students and also teachers is quite balance, which make JS feel more at ease.

Geram Geram

January 2, 2007

I have registered for a new domain for almost a week already. I thought I can start working on there…but heck…until now i still can’t get much of it done. Cant even post my first post there….Yeeee…so geram.

Really a wrong timing to get it done and it doesn’t seem to be a good start for a new year for me. I hate the slow access ….. I know many people suffered due to the earthquake, people facing more problem than I do for not able to access to the net….but without it , it’s also getting into my nerves….. Hell…I want to work on my own domain… I want to set up my “new home”…. what I have done to my new home is 0%…. sucks
