..looking back..

..Auji, just before leaving for Kolej Matriculasi Johor..
..having gone beyond dreams, you do not plan  ahead of a  decade when you are already 67....but you have memories..and hindsight may make you rue those foolish and foolhardy deeds...but if I am asked whether I would still be a polygamist, and marry those women whom I had married, I cannot truthfully answer...but being made in the mould that I am, in all honesty I would answer, 'Yes,' to the the first and second...as to the third, maybe I should not have...but life is not about rewindable reels...

. ...to pakmat, it is always about numbers....and today, I watched my first daughter from my second marriage, Auji, walked confidently towards me in her mother's high-heels...she is my 8th daughter... it was her second day as a relief teacher and her first high-heels...she looked adult beyond her years, whilst clutching a pile of books...

...having only obtained a CGPA of 3.05, she is awaiting entrance into any university that would accepts her..she is still unsure of what she wants to be...but not teaching...the kids are too unruly...maybe a marine biologist...and I smiled...learned how to swim first...

...and stay away from others husbands...no matter how they swim..

Pakmat, the last sentence is a very sound advice indeed. But in today's world anything could happens.

Have a nice day.

Salam Tuan Hj,

Good Luck to Auji - hopefully she'll find a place that she likes doing something that she loves. Oh yes, definitely not teaching ... she'll grow old before it's her time ;)

And as for the last part, que sera sera. Live and learn, sometimes the hard way.
