Canteen Day


Khadijah reminded me since last week that tomorrow is her canteen day. Is canteen day a new phenomenon? I cannot remember ever having canteen day during my primary and secondary school days. I think Canteen Day is only peculiar to Malaysia just like school fetes in England.


Well, Khadijah dropped the bomb yesterday ---- she has to bring something to school tomorrow to sell...So have to knock off early from work today and buy stuff for her muffins (this was decided this morning whilst driving her to her tuition class). It's the easiest to do. To buy ready made ones will be cheating, ain't it?


Aaah...the joy of being parents!

Me too, I never heard anything called canteen day back then.. something new I believe... or is it the same concept as pasaria?? Aahhh.. I got confused now.. So you making muffins for them, eh?? Coollll!!!

Dad of Four said...

Xis - Mm...now I remember. Pasaria's INDEED the predecessor. How can I forget the blue, yellow, pink and green coupons...My schools (secondary and primary) never had one though!

I'm not making muffins..Supervising more like it...Kitchen is never my territory since I tied the knot. LOL!

So...watever happens in that kitchen, I hope it doesn't conjure up any new spells :)...with the craze of Harry Potter still in the air.

Don't forget the pics to be posted here ok.

Indeed: the joy of being parents! When kids assigned duties, the parents go crazy too! LOL.. Hope the muffins were a hit!

Dad of Four said...

Mior - Yup! Just called her....Seems like no one's interested in her muffins!

D - Yah..running around like a headless chicken!

I have been making cards (with proverbs and fav tv characters) for the last few yrs for canteen day. LAst yr dapat collect RM700. This yr tak buat byk so dapat RM400 aje.

Nak naik gila with the cutting and laminating..... hehe but suka tgk the glow in the children's faces bila nampak the cards.

Dad of Four said...

Helena - I'm sure your kids tolong kan..Otherwise can be quite yedious...Sure sakit pinggang pas tu!

Zai - Yummy...sambal ikan bilis sandwiches. I think that's what I want for dinner tonight!

pasaria?

in my school it was called hari kantin.. and yeah with those blue, yeloow red and white coupons that we had to 'jajan' to neighbors and parents/siblings.

Dad of Four said...

Famil - Pasaria was the era of J Mizan, Halil Chik and the like. You younger ppl know it as Hari Kantin! But the coupons and the "jajans" I'm sure sama ja!! Thanks for dropping by!

on my mind certainly constantly
