My Favorite Subjects At School And Why I Loved Them

I had great times at elementary and junior high school. It felt like time flew so fast. Unlike those times, I didn't enjoy my high school times. However, I had some favorite subjects regardless of which level I studied in. Here are my favorite subjects at school and why I loved them.

Yes. I fell in love with science since in elementary school. It started when I read the text book about our planet and its surrounding. Planet Earth, the solar system, constellation and so on. I remember I went outside one night and pointed to the sky and said, "I know that. That's the Southern Cross," as my father accompanied me.

Not only astronomy, I liked biology as well. I was astonished to know how great those scientists were. I hardly imagined how they could describe organisms very specific with simple and limited tools. I admired how detail they drew and wrote their findings. They even collected their research into thick books!

Although I was not (and I'm still not) good at physics and chemistry but I do respect and admire them up to now.

If I could, I would learn many foreign languages at school. But, too bad, there was only English.
I love English so much. I like to read books in English as well as watching TV program in English. I'm not an expert, I'm just an amateur.

Back to my times at school, I always got good grade for English from Junior High to High School. English wasn't taught in elementary schools at the moment. To me, English was full of fun. While many of my class mates had difficulty with it, I never had bad experience with English but some killer teachers.

I fell in love with history, especially world history, when I studied it in High School. I think it was the teacher who drove me that. She taught the subject very interestingly. I never had such teacher before. She explained the World War I and II thoroughly. She opened my mind that the reason over something is important and that's the key to every situation in this world.

I think the biggest I got from my history teacher is the understanding. Nothing stands alone in this world. There must be some connections between one event and the others.

Well, those are my favorite subjects at school and why I loved them. Do you like science, English and history too? Or do you have other subjects that you loved at school? Please, do tell me.

Beautiful Hijabs From Hidden Pearls [A Review]

Last December I went home to Jogja for a holiday with my family. It was an end-of-semester holiday actually and I spent most of the days with my kids while my husband came later. We stayed at my mom's house which used to be the place I live through my younger years. Coming home and enjoy the atmosphere of romanticism of the past is always wonderful. I took my sons to places I'd like them to see so that they can learn something new. And they would be able to get to know their mom better. I showed them my high school, the local library I used to go, even my elementary school reports. L O L.Related article: Living In A Small Town and How I Feel About ItOn that beautiful morning I took a walk with my sons to local fisheries where they can see ponds and paddy fields. I put my pink batik dress and a Plain Deluxe Hijab from Hidden Pearls on. The hijab covered me beautifully. Even my mom asked me about it. Alhamdulillaah *smile* The hijab is soft, smooth, looks expensive and non see-th…

Purity And Prayer: An Islamic Children Rhyming Picture Book

In my younger years I once loved listening to nasheed (Islamic songs). Many songs I listened and memorized from groups of male to female nasheed group. I even handled a group of nasheed during my college years about 20 years ago. The rise of Islamic living was about to blossom at the moment. Hijabis had been started to appear here and there in campus.
Nasheed changed the way I spent my time. The guilty feeling of listening to music became smaller. I don't listen to music anymore now (gonna tell you later about it insha Allah) but nasheed was one good choice for me.
What I liked the most from nasheed is the rhyme. I am quite an auditory learner so I found rhyming is so much fun. It is more fun when comes to learning something. Kindergartens learn things through songs and rhymes as well.
What about learning Islam through rhymes? I have a great news! Book publisher, Prolance, has released a book called Purity & Prayer: Rhyming Picture Book of Sacred Rulings by Ameena Bint Abdir …

Bringing My One-Year-Old Son to Masjid for the First Time

On that fajr time, my first and second son opened the door to go to masjid for fajr salah. Suddenly my one-year-old son cried. He wanted to go with his brothers. I refused his wish, worrying he might be bothering other people by his cries or screams. But, my husband suggested me to bring him. So I walked to masjid with my son in my arms.

I entered the masjid, standing behind some ladies doing their qabliyah fajr salah, waiting for the iqamah. I chose the second row which was the last row of the ladies' area. I still held my son in my arms and he seemed to enjoy the moment.

The salah began. I was lucky there was only a lady at the left meaning that I wasn't in the middle of the row. I was afraid that my son would cry or something because he often did that everytime I do salah at home. I don't know why he behaves like that. Is this mukena (salah cloth) frightenes him? Or is it my flat expression during salah makes him scary?

At masjid I did the takbiratul ihram with one han…
