Assalamualaikum! To night in the wee hours of the morning we are going to the North (Kedah) by car. In Arabic we say, " Nahnu sanazhab ila Khodah bissayaroh fi haza lail" He, he, he. Itulah bahasa arab yang saya dah belajar sikit-sikit.
The main reason we are going north this time is to visit the family of my husband's distant cousins who had passed away last week. When we heard that somebody passed away we will say, " Innalillahi wainnailaihi rojiuun!" which means " From Allah we come and to Him we go back!"
So tonight we are going just the two of us ie my husband and I. We could not take the others because we are also going to fetch an extra helper who's giong to help us in the kitchen preparing food for the students. The two maids that I have now would not be able to cope with the workload. This is part of the preparation to accommodate the increasing number of intake for year 08 for our school.
The other preparation is that we have rennovated the present hostel for the boys and we have rented another building for the girls' hostel. I could forsee that I would be busy helping my husband to manage the school. So I have decided to teach the students English only. New teachers will be joining us, including maths and science teacher, Bahasa Melayu and History teacher and an Ustazah for the Quranic subjects. At the moment we already have three ustaz and 1 ustazah full time, and 4 part-time teachers. We hope to give the best to our students in every aspect.
