I still haven't spoken to MrNordin about that. Malas.
But I have spoken to him lah, about other things. Dia pun tak tanya, so let's just leave it as it is for now.
Despite my anguish, there are some good news from the children's front. Nab***, my eldest stepdaughter, has just received an offer to do Finance in UiTM Shah Alam. She did well in her matrics and will now pursue a degree of her first choice. She's leaving this Sunday.
Nad***, my second stepdaughter, is first in class for her mid-term exam. She's in Form 5. We went to collect her report card this morning and when her teacher told me that she's got No. 1, I almost shed tears. I was so proud of her. She was smiling away, but MrNordin remained calm. He must be very proud of her daughter too, but men being men, kena lah maintain macho, kan?
In a while, I have to go back to school to collect the "anak teruna" punya report card. He's in Form 2. Yang ini, ada leceh sikit. Results dia selalu sama je... sederhana. Malam tadi Baba dia dah tanya, "Is there any surprise tomorrow?" He said, "You'll see..." Baba dia tanya lagi, "What do you mean?" Dia jawab, "Yes, there's a surprise, Baba..." "Good or bad?", the father asked again. He said, "Bad surprise."
Bad surprise ni yang tak suka nak dengar. Because of that, we're gonna pick up his report card much later. I'm sure he doesn't mind waiting since he knows he's gonna get a lashing from his father anyhow. Boys.. they are so different from the girls!
