The Longest Word With Only One Vowel!

The other day during dinner, there was only MyC and me eating our nasi lemak quietly. Always, at times like this, the silence just killed me. My seemingly cool attitude finally faltered when I looked up at MyC and suddenly blurted a taboo question.

Me: Girl...are you ok about Shah Alam?
MyC: *shaking her head* Noooooo....
Me: Mummy too...

And a Kleenex moment ensued. We both cried. Giggled...then cried. Giggled and cried. But nasi lemak tasted even yummeh, so, we ate!

I know, we're a silly mother and daughter bunch but we can't help contained our brief (I hope), sadness when MyC has made up her mind to further her studies in UiTM Shah Alam. We were at first elated when she got a place in KM Pulau Pinang which was, like, ten minutes away from our house. So now it is about time for MyC to be on her own. Six years ago, she was an eager student to do things her way when she enrolled in MRSM Langkawi only to back out when her home-sickness was over-whelming. She lasted only two-weeks there and returned to her old day-school. And from that day onwards we are inseparable. I waited for her on everything and watched her grow before my eyes...

This time, it will be different. This is her calling and she has to be ready...er...mummy too.

Now...if there's anything I needed the most and lots, then it has to be STRENGTHS!


Have a nice weekend, you all!


Lots of love,
Lili

sakit yg paling sakit ialah sakit rindu ... huwaaaa *sambil tumbuk2 lantai*.. wa plak rasa nak nangishh...

I doakan semoga ibu dan anak kuat semangat; perpisahan hanya sementara ... huwaaaa... nak nangish sbb my doter dah tak balik 2 minggu (tapi besok dia balik, hehe..).

Stay strong .. better stock loads of tissue :-)

Lili said...

Akak,

Anak perempuan kan...tentu kita rasa lain sikit.
Anak perempuan = kawan baik kan?
Dulu yang beriya nak duduk asrama pun dia..lepas tu, masuk dua malam mula ler menangis, tak selera makan bagai...hehe! This time I harap dia lebih matang dan bersedia. Kalau tidak, I pindah Shah Alam... huahuahuahua)))

Lili said...

Angelina,

Oh ye ke dah dekat? Tapi MyC macam mummy dia..takut kucing! Anyway, maybe one day, when MyC has settled down comfortably in Uitm, and no more home-sickness, I'll let her visit Sebastian...hehehe

Lili said...

As,

Everyone of us, mothers, will have to go through this phase. And, yes..I dreaded it too!

Good Luck to us! hehe

Lili said...

Salam Zulfadly,

Thanks singgah ke sini dan tinggalkan jejak..hiks!

Keadaan macam ini memang lumrah, tapi itu ler, nak belajar melepaskan anak perempuan yang tak pernah berenggang ni makan masa, memerlukan kesediaan batin dan kesabaran.

I hope I have all that. ;-)

Lili said...

Fa laling!

*Me mishh you..*

Fa, nanti kita sama-sama sedey ye. Psst sedey kita pelik sikit kan kat klabhaus tu...hikhik!

Oldstock said...

Time to let the little bird leave the nest venture out on her own. Life is full of adventures for those with brave hearts.

Lagipun, Shah Alam tu tak lah jauh sangat kan? I'm assuming she's doing Asasi at UiTM... after that kalau dapat pi oversea lagi jauh noo...

Lili said...

Oldstock,

Adeh..berat hati tapi nak buat macam mane? It has to be one person stronger than the other, but in our case we're both so mushy.

Oh yes, she'll be doing Asasi there. I must set in my mind that Shah Alam is near..haha

Mama said...

Salam Lil

Selamat hari ibu

Mama rasakan Mama MyC pindah je ke SA.... tidaklah perpisahan itu terjadi... dan tak payah stock kleenex banyak2. Bagus tak cadangan Mama?
