I ended 2012 with a family vacation. How I long to write about the trip to Siem Reap, but, my time is occupied with domestic affairs. So much so, I wish to have another escapade, just the way Kamal arranged one fine July. Entering The Club at The Saujana, I was in awe with the existence of such a place in the hectic Klang Valley.

The service was superb, yes. Nevertheless, I was more amazed with the tranquility. A quality that I welcomed for my birthday then. Thank you, Kamal, for the lovely surprise. If I were nowhere to be found the next 24 hours, you know where to search for me.

plei⋅sure noun \plē-zhər\

a form of delight from the freedom provided by the cessation of activities

The word exists only in my mind, undoubtedly. 
The definition is two definitions combined, sourced from Merriam-Webster Online. 

To lounge about with a book and a cup of hot chocolate this morning is an absolute pleisure!

Thank you, Lisa and Joey, for being great sister and brother to Khalish.
The little boy said, "hope to meet both of you again soon", and, of course, "happy birthday, Joey!"

Annual Concert 1

On January 1, 2013, the conversation that Kamal, Khalish, and I had revolved around one topic. School. Today, the boy started well for someone whose first question every single morning throughout 2012 was "is it school holiday yet?"

He was awake at 7:30 a.m, in time for breakfast. Oh, he even insisted to bathe on his own. No resistance for the uniform either. In the car, he conversed with the parents about Lego. 

Only to cling to me when a teacher greeted him at the gate of Tadika Damai Impian (Q-Dees), followed by a river of tears. That dramatic, yes. At the end of the day, when I queried, "was your day with teachers and friends fun?", he chirped, "yes, mommy!"

Which reminded me of the boy's antics during the annual concert last year. The moment he stepped onto the stage, the packed auditorium echoed with laughter. All because of his conflict. Too happy to dance with the classmates, yet too shy to face the audience. Too cute. His confidence grew during the second performance.

Hopefully, his second year in school will be similar to that second performance
