As she sees it… The Munawars.

The Munawars

Last night, Sara showed me these 5 hearts with much excitement. I was too tired and just nodded and smiled. Then I felt no good. Apa punya apak!! Show some interest la next time.

Today she put these 5 hearts on the wall and told me that each of these hearts represent every one of us.

To honor her enthusiasm, I put this picture online. Just in case, I miss this moment again.

Moral : Always show interest to your daughter’s (actually all of your offsprings) piece of arts.

The Core Values of Librarianship

While sorting out old images, I came across with this picture, the core values of Librarianship. These are the blocks and stones that define us… Librarians.

Generally, there are 11 values that each librarian should believe and uphold. These are our commandments; our values; our honour; our codes… our sacred codes. By these lines, every librarian must believe.

  • Access
  • Confidentiality/Privacy
  • Democracy
  • Diversity
  • Education and Lifelong Learning
  • Intellectual Freedom
  • Preservation
  • The Public Good
  • Professionalism
  • Service
  • Social Responsibility

No! I am not going to explain these word by word. Head up to ALA: Core Values of Librarianship to learn more.

Until then.

May you be a learned Person

Adam’s 1st & 2nd Barber Haircut

This was Adam’s 1st Haircut, taken 1 year ago. Nak marah ja. So Abie dia could not go anywhere. Kena duduk tepi dan assist the barber. Nasib baik dengar kata, kalau tidak. Pasti susah. Actually, kalau susah sangat, I did cakap sama barber… “Kasi Botak!”. Nasib baik tidak menjadi kenyataan. Pasti Cik Puan bising nanti.

Below was his second visit to barber’s. Yang ini happy sikit. Tiada marah dan suka hati. Mudah yang ini.
