Yes, Anas, my third child, the chubby, mischievous boy with the squeaky voice and loud shrills is now all grown up and well on his way into tertiary education.
Chubby he is not anymore. At 5ft 8 inch, he stands taller than me, that’s for sure.
The long break from school meant that Anas had got the chance to grow his hair long (although the Mem Besar was not THAT amused). But after almost half a year of loitering around at home he was getting a bit bored just sleeping and eating and watching TV.
So, he was kind of looking forward to this whole new experience waiting before him. All accept the fact that he had to crop off his hair, that is.
The whole family went to send him of, including Opah from Ipoh.
We used the chance to hop onto Penang Island to take in some sights. But, apart from the lovely ferry ride, our little excursion around Penang proved to be a bit of a chore as the traffic was just unbearable.
So, all the best at UiTM Bukit Mertajam, Anas, my son.
Work hard and work smart.
We love you very much, and we pray for your every success.
