The Sweet and the Bitter Chocolate in the Family

Deena had an assignment to do from her English Year 3 textbook. She had to build a house out of shoe boxes. However, we were unable to find three shoeboxes. We ended up using handphone boxes that we got from Azhar's friend's shop.

I am not good in arts and handicrafts, so Azhar had to do with with Deena.

The 'Fieldworks' Software

Salam all, I had a wonderful four days (2 - 5 March) workshop on the 'Fieldworks' software. It is a software for people who are into lexicology and also concordance. We had people from SiL, USA to explain the software. It is very good for those who are interested to learn another language and if you want to make a dictionary too. I'm not into linguistic but I am into discourse analysis (written) and the concordance part is interesting.

Another thing about the course - definately the food. Every time I attend a course, I will surely eat more than usual - morning tea, lunch, and evening tea. We had nasi briyani, nasi minyak, soto, roti jala, kari kambing and many others.
