Alhamdulillah, big fat of congratulations to my TESL classmate Imran and wife for the birth of their cute unnamed prince (yet!). It was a long journey way back to 2010 when both of them decided to get married at 19 years old, such a major shock to all of us! There were wild accusations about them too which were never bothered; even some of our lecturers in IPG really protested his decision but he went on! Now fate does step in; nearly two years later this cute baby made such a sweet slow motion entrance to clear up social misjudgments on how the society used to hate the idea of early marriages.
|Proud TESL Grandpa and Grandma ;)|
This is the first TESL baby in our TESL community; the Grandpa and Grandma are both TESLians and I am his proud uncle. I have waited for too long to call myself an "uncle" so I am going to brag about it forever. I promise that I would be the best and handsomest uncle to this baby; insyaallah be a good son to your parents and the pious one to Allah okay?
Just a gentle reminder to my first "anak saudara"...life is going to be so difficult; sometimes you wish that you were never born at all. Your childhood is precious so embrace that because 24 hours never seem to be enough for a day. When you grow older...you are going to fall in love with someone just like your parents and most of the time you are just going to hurt yourself. Keep your head up boy; I am your uncle, still single and the best part of my life...I survived!
And when you are an adult dear, you are going to be busy growing up that you forgot your parents are growing older. Please be reminded to visit or call them more often...I have a thousand reason to tell you that. I know the hurdles that your parents have gone through even though most of the time I play-pretend to never give a damn but somehow I cared.
So sorry dear...this is just an emotional blog post and surely not a great welcoming note for you to the world. I am just grooming you because the best part of your life is yet to come...I am your uncle and I know better ;)
