I wake up about 5 am to prepare for the subuh prayers and the sunat night prayers if there's time.( Sometimes Pak Haji is up much earlier) Then do the sunat fajr and the subuh prayers. After subuh read a few pages of the Quran. Then have a little breakfast. Then I walk down the hill to the school with the students (girls). While walking briskly we say the zikir in low tone ( Subhanallah, Walhamdulillah, Walaiallaha illaallahu wallahu Akbar!). In about 10 minutes we reach the school gate. The girls cross the road into the school compound. When I see that they are safely in, I walk a little further down the road towards the Pasar. By then my son will pick me up to deposit me at the pasar. I will have about 1 hour to do my marketing. My husband or son will pick me up from the pasar about 8.30 am.
Then I will sit down for breakfast with Pak Haji while glancing at the papers. Meantime the maids have prepared the ingredients for the students makan to be served at 10.30 break.(eg today the menu is Mee Goreng). When the maid announced that the igredients are ready, I will go into the kitchen to cook the item on the menu for the day. Having done that I will get dress up for school to teach the students Bahasa Melayu or English. I have an hour of classes everyday from Monday to Thursday.
After class, we (Pak Haji and I) will go out to do purchasing, banking, pay bills etc. Then come back for lunch, check E-mails, pray, rest and take a nap 3-4 pm. Wake up, check the food preparation for tea and dinner. At night Pak Haji and I usually knocked out early! Sometimes we wake up again by 11 pm. Pak Haji will go out to the hostel to check on the boys or to met out punishment if there's any wrong-doings by the boys earlier during the day. I checked on the girls and then we sleep again by 12.30 after the late News.
Friday is my rest day! I am at leisure especially when the all the boys and men go to the mosque for Friday Prayers. Saturday is my marketing day for bulk purcase at Pasar Besar Klang while Sunday is my purchasing day at the Giant Supermarket. Sometimes we feel very tired but Pak Haji and I are both happy doing this job. Syukur Alhamdulillah!
Oh! It's now time for my Beauty sleep ! Bye....
