I asked him the other day, what does he likes most about his school and new class?
He said, being the most popular boy in school is what he enjoy most.
Is he really that popular??
You won't believe it, but that's really what's happening now.. He's the most popular boy in school, everyone knows him, simply because he just came back from Germany!
Ok, perhaps, if we are now in huge city like Kuala Lumpur, this is probably nothing, but since we are now in Pekan pahang, not a huge town, so Afeef became too popular.
Afeef enjoyed it very much, but as for me, the low profile, and the kind who love to stay behind the curtain kind of person, I found this quite uncomfortable.
Everyone stares at me whenever I'm there!!!!
Ok, enough of that, so I asked him, what is his favorite subject in school?
He said~~ History, Pendidikan Islam (don't know how this is called in english), Mathematics, and Science!
Wow, what a combination!
He said he kinda enjoy school nowadays, "because he's tooooo Popular" :P
And when I asked, if he ever feels bored in school, for all different subjects compared to DE,
he said, it doesn't matter if certain subject doesn't interest him, he's there in school for the knowledge, so he'll learn them regardless!
I never think the way he does until I've finished University!
Being the typical Malaysian mom before I went to DE, I've always wanted Afeef to be the best in class, the best in school if possible, but, after 4 years in DE, I've learnt a lot, that I realised, it's not number 1 and the best student in class that I'm after, it's the knowledge, and how we apply what we've learned in life, that's what matters.
So I told him, "Don't stress yourself with the competitive behaviour of some people, just go with your own pace, and never forget to pray and make doa everyday."
Not every succesfull people started off good you know.. Hehe..
Afeef may be a bit left behind now, but I believe, he'll really achieve something in the future insyaAllah..
By the way, this is our neighborhood now...
Isn't it nice?
I know I shouldn't be thinking about our home in Kaiserslautern Germany anymore, I'm here now, and it is a very peaceful place, and the kids are adapting well too and they love this new neighborhood.... but still from time to time, I couldn't help myself, those images keep flashing in my head, those moments when I oppened the window and watched the beautiful Spring lights, those beautiful sunsets from our window, those routines....
But, there's always a beautiful sunset that I can always gaze at here too, here in our new neighborhood...
Just as beautiful...
I wouldn't trade anything in this world, not even the kind of life I once had in DE for these positiv changes in my children, they talked about Allah, Rasulullah almost all the time, they've memorized surah so fast...
It made me think, this is the Hikmah of coming back to Malaysia and I don't have to wait long to see it.
So, Life goes on...
Life's Like That...
Till later, Salam...
