There is a quiet at the heart of love,
And I have pierced the pain and come to peace.

~ Sara Teasdale ~ (born 8 August 1884)

After my daughter Zulaila, now it's my turn!! Welcome Mr. Varicella Zoster.. I wonder how you knew that I've never been infected by you before... After surviving for more than 30 years...Ish, ish, ish.....

From Wikipedia:
Chickenpox is a highly contagious illness caused by primary infection with varicella zoster virus (VZV). It generally begins with conjunctival and catarrhal symptoms and then characteristic spots appearing in two or three waves, mainly on the body and head rather than the hands and becoming itchy raw pockmarks, small open sores which heal mostly without scarring.

Chickenpox has a 10-21 day incubation period and is spread easily through aerosolized droplets from the nasopharynx of ill individuals or through direct contact with secretions from the rash. Following primary infection there is usually lifelong protective immunity from further episodes of chickenpox.

Chickenpox is rarely fatal, although it is generally more severe in adults than in children. Pregnant women and those with a suppressed immune system are at highest risk of serious complications. The most common late complication of chicken pox is shingles, caused by reactivation of the varicella zoster virus decades after the initial episode of chickenpox.

Mes soeurs et moi (et la petite Aqeela, biensur) sont allees les retrouver a Sg. Wang pour ensuite les emmener a la tour de KL..

"Je t'imagine plus mince...", a dit la maman.. Et oui, c'etait il y a 10 ans.. Et j'ai pris des tonnes de poids depuis..uhuk,uhuk..

A M. et Mme. Chalons, bienvenue en Malaisie.. J'espere que vous avez aime votre sejour.. et a tres bientot!

Aqeela again!


More drawings from Areen...

Here are some drawings by Areen, made some time ago..

of her school friends:

of some 'friendly' animals

Mouse Mousie

We are sending Areen to music lessons.. she has to pop in the middle as the classe already started few months ago.. so, after two(2) evaluation/trial classes, she is accepted. It's a rather excellent music centre as the children are taught the sense of music before really choose an instrument. There are lots of fun and games as not to scare or bore the little ones.. babies as early as new born could start lessons!! So, Aqeela, when is your turn? Attend un peu la, huh?! While waiting, you'll dance over some salsa music with umi, ok chérie? Haha..
