Welcome 2012 and Primary One blues....

Well, not such a good start to 2012 as I was down with a gastric flu on 1.1.2012, probably due to some uncleanliness food that I've taken on the last day of 2011. Took a MC yesterday and only back to work today. And, it was a really a long weekend for me, though lots of work waiting for me to clear today.

I was with my family in Sutera Mall to witness the countdown to 2012 and that place was really crowded as all of us were anxiously waiting for the fireworks.

My favourite pic of the night :)
After all the celebrations, and with my gastric flu, the reality of life slowly crept back to my life as well as my wife's as we are in the blues of preparing our first kid for primary one. My wifey was especially worried whether that lad knew his way to his school bus, to his class and back home. She was calling the school bus uncle and checking all the details with his teacher during the orientation on Monday. Like any parents, she was there today on the first day, guiding him especially buying food in the canteen. I thought of taking leave but then I have been away from work for awhile, thus I ended up a little jittery at work, wondering how was he doing in school, besides enduring the long hours due to the school bus. Thank God it seems allright, as he gave me a loud 'OK' when he's back home.

Well, it's a rite of passage for his start to life long education and also for us parents, who started sending our kid to school for the first time. Welcome, 2012!!
