Mee Siam Kuah

Yesterday, Iqram cameback crying from school...when I asked him why, he said his teacher didnt choose him to be the class monitor...I said never mind lah...maybe next term it will be his turn..then he said..'not fairlah ma!!!'last term also I didnt get ...' then he started crying again..aiyoh...he kept on crying for the next 20 minutes.. when I tried to explain or comfort him, he will pause for a while then when I finish talking, he will continue crying...

Then I keep on talking to him, saying that to be a monitor, you must be good in your behaviour and must prove to your teacher that you are a good boy ,very helpful and smart too...while explaining, I just cant help myself laughing to his 'sadness' cause it just so he cries he tries to talk which I totally dont understand what he is trying to tell me.....haha..
Anyway after a cold shower, he began to cool down and start disturbing are kids..
