Diha exploring elasticity

Growing up in Malaysian education system, we learn everything on papers, even elasticity is describe on papers and you have to know, memorize  the definition of things and then answer them in exam on paper. Being older and wiser now I realize these are some of the contributing factor of box mind in Malaysian students. We have to realize that human learn through senses and it is because of all these senses that made human special. 

When Allah wants to create prophet Adam PBUH as the' Khalifah ' on Earth, the angels ask why would you want to create creatures that will make destruction while we will always obeys you. Which Allah says I know what you do not know. Once Adam is created Allah taughts him names of things which when he asked the angels ( about the name)they aswered only Allah knows and Allah ask Adam to tell them(angels) which he(prophet Adam) did. 

Amongst scholar they describe these events describe above as the ability of human senses which are not possesed by the angels, the angels are made from lights. They obeys Allah command and they are not created with senses, they do not eat therefor do not know the taste of food, while prophet Adam could, they dont have the sense of smell, touch etc etc to allow them to learn about things in this world like we learn. Therefor the experience of senses is important in learning, we should always incorporate it , most importantly we should understand the aim of learning is to LIVE not to excel in exams.
Ok !!!!! Dah habis merepek.

Today , using whatever I have at home and in the kitchen, I created a simple game for diha to explore elasticity. There are no needs of words , just play and explore, u see a bit of organization in the play, bits of planning. Simple...extremely simple.

Thins i need, elastic band/hair band, bottle organizer/or anything similar.

Hand and fingers coordination to handle the elastic band.

Focus and concerntration.

This is how I will set her do while I go around doing errands letting her deep in her thoughts and activity.

Playdoh but not playdoh

I found this clay toy which is as soft and as good as playdoh but not playdoh and do not cost like playdoh and we had a wonderfull playtime with it.

This whole tube cost RM10 and there is actually so much range of clay toys with these brand. I bought these at Mr DIY.

We made pizza.

Range of fruit and vege's

Uyay and his gun semprot. Hahahahahhahaha

Double cheese burger. As real as fake just like M*D hihihihihi.

Such a simple playtime together. Very satisfying at the same time educational.

Its just that i want to spend time with the kids and do not want them to remember the time together is just for learning and math. The grill time. Lets learning be fun.

Ipoh trip

The weekend after the singapore trip we went on family trip to Ipoh.


Sampai sampai terus mandi air terjun, tapi because anak kecik, we just play at anak sungai missing the massive high waterfall. 

We spend the whole day upon arrival mandi manda , then went to our beautiful 4 bedroom homestay to rest and enjoy family time.

That night we had barbecue and makan makan invitation at my sister's in laws house.

The next day Gunung Lang trip, naik bot and then bagi makan ikan, ooohhh!!! Besar besar ikan!!!

Zohor at Masjid Cina....very very impressive Da'wah strategy, there is so many chinese tourist here.

Siblings and ibu---- happy moments. (P/s emi xde)

It was a wonderfull trip. Dok pulun holiday before start keje.

 ----- planning the next trip---once able to take leave( almaklumla dah start keje sob sob).


Singapore trip

Somewhere in August we went to singapore over the wekends doing some errands.

All set, we drive to JB.

Dah sampai, check in JB hotel and rest.

The next day we went to singapore by bus.

Family pose. In front of the famouse globe, tak masuk pon...x sempat.

We went up the singapore flyer, enjoying the breathtaking view of singapore from the world tallest ferris wheel of 165m .

Then we went across , to the garden by the bay, one of the largest man made garden which Singapore claim to equilibrate the development that was underway. Fair enough.

We went into the flower dome and cloud forest. Lived in vietnam before and enjoying the flower decoration in Ho Chi Minh City during tet, I would say I am not amazed with the flower dome. But it is still beautiful.

Susahnye nak tangkap gambar these kids.

Clouds forest are more awesome, which led me to miss natural waterfall in Malaysia which led us to another trip (next post) to mandi air terjun.

There is the high walkway in it, which we really enjoy. 

Diha got so excited and jumping around on her stroller, tak gayat ke diha.

It was a wonderfull short , and very tiring one day trip which we enjoyed so much.

Diha painting

I found this wonderfull sponge brush to do painting work with diha.



I let her wear her not so favorite Tshirt that I dont mind got stained over he dress, she got so excited. Yeay yeay and jumping around.

Diha all set.

Thats the proof, cant sit still, jumping around while painting!!! Diha utty!!!

Then after diha is done, i let uyay try them.


The red package.

The other day Harith said "Ummi, there is a book van shop coming to school they went round all schools and today they will come to my school. Please give me extra money to buy books ummi"

So I did.

And he came home proudly presenting the craft books he bought, which uyay so love..

They want to do the craft in them. And they choose one simple one.( Coz our studio kids craft room tak siap lagi la)

Thats the instruction.

So we got ourselves a box. So happy and excited, even though its just a simple one, because we have not have much opportunity to do much craft activities now. 

And start painting them.

Diha watching on ....before menyerang...yes yes she will kacau.

Once the colors dried up the next day I help them wrap rope around.

This activities are more on spending times together, working together and helping the boys , read instruction, follows them, and turn them into the real life things.

The boys are always happy seeing the fruit of their work.

Diha play and learn

I love all these colorfull stuff for many great sorting activities and other skills activities. So i got this colorfull cups, colorfull ice cream sticks, colorfull hairbands.
Diha playing stacking, sorting , just give her those things and she work her magic with them.

And i will arrange this simply...and it became another activities.

Love this !
