For another presentation at the symposium in nearby local uni, the time limit is too short…10 minutes. I had to condense my material and encourage the audience to read my paper or ask me questions…Meeting some professors and new lecturer at that uni as part of networking is very enjoyable to me. We could exchange our experience on our research area. While during workshop at Mariot Putrajaya, exchanging knowledge and expertise between our organization, Australian research organization, local uni expertise and local company expertise is also a good one. But at the end of the day, brain so drain out…so much new knowledge to be digested especially in the area of which not within my expertise. Nevertheless it is fun since everyone is learning from each other.
Within my area of expertise/experience on that particular subject matter, apparently I was the only one who still around in the company. Others who had been involved in this project up to the implementation stage are no more in the company. They had found their way out…majority to the land of desert…Arabian desert… the pert is so irresistible… Me? Still want to stick around… as long as I can still fit into the environment… and still be around the circle of family… being away to other land is not my preference right now… I been long enough for quite sometimes..
Now back to baby matters. I thought I had given up on that since my other half is not so into it even though the lil man is quite persistent in persuading his papa. It is all started with my lil man been on stage voluntarily for some Disney magic performance sometime ago. My cousins and their kids were there. I didn’t join them as the VIP tickets were limited. I let both lil man and big man to join the performance. And me…stay home doing my cores. The story I heard was that my lil man was really enjoyed being on stage to participate on the show. He was so very confident and full of enjoyment. One picture was captured to reflect the whole story…
A week after that event, my cousin called me to ask if lil man would want to be in another show…a different show. He agreed and we proceeded with that…but a load of story to describe the outcome of that junior showmanship competition. Not that we wish him to win, but the fact that he had the dilemma within him… The dilemma of not being up close and personal to this baby…. It is quite an emotional story if no one knows the real story behind it. Maybe I will blog about this later if I could describe it with words. Nevertheless the event comes out to be memorable one for lil man and for us all. After that event, this baby is just like his own sibling. Surprisingly, never did I have known, big man is also fond of this baby. Now, the 5 month old baby becomes part of our family. The moment of separation will be hard later on. We might end up continuously taking care of this baby, if both lil and big man find it hard to detach from this lil one. This is our new baby….
Her name is Candy, named by lil man, a combination of her parent’s name. Brown tabby white Persian (If I correctly described it). She is a new addition o our family. Candy help to balance tantrum that lil man have due to his high functioning asperger syndrome autistic character. That is the story of our new baby.
Will be back… Selamat hari raya aidil adha to everyone.
