Few more days, my daughter Yanna will arrive home, InsyaAllah! Yanna comes back almost every year. She had saved the money for the tickets. Well, not all of it, I had to cotribute some. Yanna is very thrifty and also knows how to earn some pocket money. Her clasmates are international and they would ask from her Malaysian made telekung, tudung etc and her Malaysians friends (not in same school as she) love the stockings from the former Russian territories.( That's where she could earn a few RMs? ) When she comes back to Malaysia, she would buy gifts for her friends and ustazah. Her favourite gifts to her ustazah would be all colors of our malaysian made ball pens. They loved the gifts and she could afford such gifts! Yes, Yanna would be arriving on the 15th August and Lia would be arriving on her birthday i.e few days later than Yanna! ( Lia had requested for her birthday cake to be brought to the airport!) So I am waiting for few more days for the child who was always on my lap, and my 'Pendant' to come home safely. For Lia , do your exam well first, do not get diverted by the thoughts of coming home. As for Yanna pack properly your luggage so that you don't have to quarrel with the Egyptian authorities at the airport! Welcome Home!
