Image:2 The good Dr with cute little Maisarah
My nephew, a lecturer at the IIU will be going for his sabbatical for 9 months at a university in Gloucestershire. Dr Alizi will be accompanied by his spouse Fawzia and their 5 children. They are expected to fly off tomorrow night.
The passing of Fall a spectacle of wonder
Of golden hues of Autumn leaves beginning
to give way to the impending cold just ahead
Inclement of a cold stream is new to the kids
They are used to cold showers, a heavy downpour
at worst but an experience of winter’s snow is a novelty
as yet to be seen. Stories of Santa and Christmas
they have heard told but fluffy snow flakes they can only
imagine. They will soon see and feel, it will be fun
A sojourn of a kind. The family we’ve been told
will be putting up at Cheltenham, a walking distance
to the University. The good Dr will be occupied with
a research stint for the duration of stay
The eldest girl Sophia had just sat for our local UPSR exam
here. She has the most to gain. At 12 years of age a window to
many new things are at her bidding in school as well as
outside the school environment. Two of the younger ones
are also expected to be in school being of mandatory
school age. But they may be a tad too little to feel
the impact of a school as yet.
My friend Mo (here) now staying at his son’s in Birmingham
is about an hour’s drive away. It is hoped they will
get around together. It will be reassuring to be
with folks from back home when one is away overseas.
I would wish my nephew and his family the
very best and a wonderful stay away from home.
