Snow Storm & School's Out...

Kids will still be kids, no matter how old they get :-) In fact, we ALL have a bit of the kid in us! They have been visualising snow all the time ..asking me how it looks like & feels like. I'ld always tell them to go to the 'fridge' & scrape off the frost. Coming from all the year round sunshine country, to feel and see the real thing, I guess was too much for them. "Hah...macam nak gghaq punya seronok!" :-) ..
The day continued with a snow storm. The heavy,raging rain kept on pouring & the strong winds kept on beating the windows & glass doors until evening. Our landlord had to work overtime with his ice plough. Pushing the snow & scraping frozen ice at the sides of his tenants' houses & even on the main road. I know its stated in the lease, but shoveling snow is a backbreaking job.. especially for a man as old as him. He is 5 years older than Anna but still strong and healthy.
His secret is eat whatever that doesn't make your stomach or body suffer. But I told him.." ..it must be the olive oil" Yeah..Italians do take that a lot !...he said with a smile. Seing him makes me remember my father...( Allahyarham Hj Zainal Abidin..insya Allah dia di tempatkan bersama orang-orang yang beriman ), because just like our landlord, he is the kind of guy you can depend on whenever you need some kind of help.
