Getting back to my gardening

I'm so happy today cause after 1 month struggling to finish up all the assignments given to me, today I am free to get back to doing everything that I enjoy to do. Besides continuing with Herbalife, I've been waiting for the free time to take care of my pots and plants.
Here is the side of my house where I arranged my pots. Actually my parents helped with the sunshade just to cool my plants from direct sunlight.

A swing for my kids, especially for Afrina, bought from Ikea, hanged by my father.

Ok, this orchid (I don't know the type) is first time blooming in my garden. Actually it was given by my mom-in-law. She is an orchids fan. I've been taking care of some of her orchid collections for nearly a year, and now the flower is starting to come out.

I have some fruits tree also. This mango tree is planted in front of my house. Since it has been raining lately, the tree is growing very well.

We have another mango tree outside our fence, just starting to grow.

We have also a big 'cili padi' tree. Since I'm not so much fan of hot and spicy food, we always give the chillies to friends at work, and bring back to our parents. Actually we have 'kacang botol' trees also at our back fence, but today I took it all down coz the small white bugs are destroying the tree. Hopefully it will grow back later. For the chillies tree, I have to spray some garlic juice everyday to keep the bugs away.

So today I managed to put fertilizer on all my pots and orchids. I enjoy doing this, but stopped spending money on pots and new plants coz I think we have had enough plants for the house. Maybe I should invest to build 'Edible Garden' in my home like what I saw Datin Jeanne did it Putrajaya in the paper today.

Hopefully when we have enough money to renovate the house, we can build pergola at the side for my hanging pots, and build pots rack, and maybe a little pool with fishes...hmmm...better update my wishlist.

My Brother's engagement ceremony

My 4th brother got engaged last Sunday, 8 March 2009. We call him Erry, well his real name is Ariff Aswad. His fiance's name is Ina.(Not sure the real name).

I'm actually the eldest from 7 siblings. Me and my younger brother already married and got 2 pairs of kids each. My 3rd brother is still single and available hehe...
So here are some pictures from the engagement ceremony.

So here are some pictures from the ceremony. As usual, I have to control my kids during the discussion part as they were trying to scream and running around. Finally, my husband took them to stay in the car.

The food was very nice and delicious. There were sup tulang, ikan semilang masak cili, telur itik masak lemak, some vegetables, fruits, ulams and kuih bakar. Everybody liked the dishes, and there are a lot of people during the lunch time.

And here are some pictures of me, husband and kids. Not manage to get more pictures, but overall very happy with the ceremony and very happy for my brother.

I need to retire my part-time job

I've been struggling to finish up a lot of assignments during this month. Not mine, though. I'm helping some people to finish up their degrees, by doing assignments for them. In return, they'll pay me for the number of assignments that I do for them.

I've targeted to finish everything by end of February. It turned out that after I've finish most of it, more people are contacting me for more copies of assignments. It turns out that I have to do more than 10 assignments for this semester. Can you believe it?

No need for me to tell which University and who are the people involved. What pushed me to post here is their attitude with the assignments. Here are some of the reasons why they ask me to do for them.

1. Not enough time
2. Cannot answer the hard questions
3. Malas nak fikir, nak struggle only for exams and finals.

And when I try to reject, guess what are some of the remarks they made:
1. So easy one...Why you don't want to do it? (Why didn' u do it yourself if it is easy?)
2. Please do it for me, got 2 more weeks to finish. Still got a lot of time. I cannot do it myself, not enough time (Duhhh...)

And when i try to put some price to these late comers, this is their comments:
Why so expensive? i can provide paper and binding. (With total less than RM10?- Come on..why you're trying to find me at last minute?)

Then,after I agree to take just one more, someone send me sms.

Mr A :Can I give ur number to my fren? He want u to do assignment for him too.
Me : cannot take anymore
Mr A : What reason i should give to my friend? Kesian dia.
Me : Up to you.
Mr A : I ckp u nak jaga anak ye.
Me : ???!!!! (whatever)

I'm retyring for next semester (hopefully).
