Hey uols. I finally decided to update my blog again eh? Sorry, I tried so hard to finish the earlier story, but just couldn't. No reason, I just couldn't. Maybe some other times when I gather enough courage OK?
Well, raya is OK, considering that we celebrated raya this year here in Bangi. I mean, everyone I consider family were here and for that I was truly blessed. Except that.. for the fact that.. we're short of one member. And.. my newly renovated home! Lots of stories about this one but I'm gonna tell you about that some other time.
I actually wanna tell you something I did for Fahim today. Well, I promised him this since early this year (probably last year - I can't really remember though). I promised him I'd buy him a new pet, since Tembun was given to a family friend 2 years ago. And on our last trip to Warta.. for birthday preparation and such, lalu lagi kedai pet tu. And I (again) promise to buy him a tortoise in a week, and he's been counting days like crazy. This was due last Sunday :-(
Being a bad mother I am, I only bought them tortoise today - two of them. And he's so happy. And that makes me super happy.
Walking out of the shop towards my car, he's already picking up names for them. Don't ask me, I don't know why or how he chose the names : Iyoshi (maybe this is the wrong spelling but I swear this is how he pronounced it the first time, and every other times) and Ian. I cracked my brain to remember any cartoon characters with those names but nothing. Iyoshi is so... asian? and Ian is like the name of some Hollywood actor. I really have no idea.. this boy surprised me!
The truth is, I never wanted him to have any pet, for the time being. He can't even put his shirt on properly, let alone taking care of a pet. That was why I've been holding to the idea for so long.. but seeing his determination kind of blew me away. He was persistent, to the point of annoying the hell out of me, but everything he said to me every time this whole pet thing came out was.. so sweet but so mature for a 6 year old to say.
So I gave up. He won.
I bought him his second pets - Iyoshi and Ian.
