The SPM results came out yesterday, and again I was a very proud mum, smiling from ear to ear because another child did me proud again! 🙂
Nukman, no.5 in the family of 6 kids, and the youngest son, started like this:
We felt that his head was too big for him, but then, the Chinese believe that big head means good fortune (?) 🙂 .
He was and still is a bubbly person:
with a calming facial expression too:
He did well in primary school, and never let us down. He was the headboy of his school (though I could not locate any of the pix) and every year I would attend the price-giving ceremony to see him go up the stage to accept his prizes.
Before we knew it he was about to enter the secondary school. By then he was chubbier. Here’s a pic of him at his chubbiest, at his favourite place (Old Trafford) in Nov 2005:
He lost most of his baby fat when he went to a boarding school. Here’s him in 2007:
He’s gone places since then. Here at Gunung Merapi with his 2 other siblings:
We even went close to the Myanmar border (In Mae Sai, Thailand):
Tanah Lot, Bali:
in Seoul last Dec:
And recently to Anak Kratau (Indonesia):
Two years ago he gave me this:
And yesterday he gave me the best so far:
Though I miss the chubby face of the happy go-lucky toddler, I do want him to move ahead and proceed with his life. Like any mother, I am wishing him the best in his future undertakings!
