Red Nose Day

Hari ini malas sungguh nak ke universiti. Selalunya memang hari Jumaat I'm off to the universiti. Berehat-rehat di rumah. Malam semalam sibuk ke enam-enam anak mencari baju-baju merah untuk dipakai ke sekolah. Yes, today they will be celebrating the red nose day in their schools. Setiap mereka membeli sebiji hidung merah berharga 1 pound.

Tujuan kutipan duit bagi red nose ini ialah untuk memberi derma kepada mereka yang tidak bernasib baik di Afrika dan juga di UK sendiri. Organized by Comic Relief, British charity organisation that was founded in the United Kingdom in 1985 by the comedy scriptwriter Richard Curtis in response to famine in Ethiopia.


Selain membeli hidung merah, ada juga aktiviti lain. Habeebah membuat kek dan biskut di sekolah untuk jualan dan hari ini membawa beberapa pence untuk membeli kek dan biskut buatan sendiri. See..schools here are about playing unlike us in Malaysia, our students study real hard in order to get as much A's as possible. That's what I'm afraid of, will my children get A's when we're in Malaysia in few years time..?

So many trips being organized by the schools. Last few week, Habeebah has gone to Leicester for the Shakepeare's play and Zahraa' will be going to York next week to find more about the Viking history. And unfortunately, Qutub and Iman have missed the Paris trip. Kami juga yang belum ke mana-mana lagi..
