Search 29

11 May 2005

It is 6.48 am. My sixth and youngest child is sleeping behind me. My husband is teaching my fifth child to read al-Qur'an (mengaji). It is his hobby and will always be. My hobbies are writing with a lot of breaks, surfing the Internet, writing and replying e-mails, cooking, gardening, and designing. I also collect rocks - raw granite, batu sungai, some of the stuff mentioned in the Table of Periodic Elements (sulphur, gold, aluminium, etc) and some of their compounds (iron pyrite, etc) and things of the ancient world (fossils, petrified wood, etc).

It is 7.07 am. I am listening to the news on TV1 which covers the bombing in Myanmar, draft of the Putrajaya Declaration on women, NAM, UMNO leaders, etc.

The 29th search is to scrutinise the UKM Malay Civilization (ATMA) website at for update. I had registered to use the site. I had accessed and printed the webpage on 3 May 2005. This is a new site launched by YB Dato' Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim, Ministry of Arts, Culture and Heritage on 31 January 2005.
