Supplies For Dania's New School

We've enrolled Dania for 2 new schools next year; morning sessions at Tadika Perpaduan and afternoon sessions at Sekolah Kafa Ad-deen. Hopefully she won't feel too tired; the morning sessions only last for 3 hours and gives Dania enough time to have her lunch, take a nap and bathe before heading off to her afternoon sessions. However, everything is still on trial as the last thing I want to do is give my little girl a burnout before she even starts regular school. That's should only happen when she starts work. Heh.

Yesterday ibu and myself took Dania to buy her school uniform. We bought her shoes and socks at Bata and her baju kurung and headgear at Mydin. We had to go to Tesco for the kain which we then took to Giant to get them altered (too long). Hmmm...banyak berjalan, belanja pun banyak. I can't believe how much it costs to buy school uniforms nowadays.

This is what we bought yesterday and what I spent on everything.

Two pairs of white school shoes (Bata) = RM23.99 x 2 = RM47.98
Two pairs of socks = RM6.99 x 2 = RM13.98
1 pack of shoe whitening (3 bottles per pack) = RM5.99
Two mini telekung = RM5.90 x 2 = RM 11.80
Two inner head gear (anak tudung) = RM1.50 x 2 = RM3.00
Two baju kurungs = RM8.50 x 2 = RM17.00
Two kain (green) = RM25.90 x 2 = RM51.80
One pair of Disney sunglasses = RM19.90
Total damage = RM171.45

Yeeeeeshh!!! And this is not including the registration fees, transport fees, books, stationary and all those other stuff I had to pay for at the schools. AICARAMBA!!!

OK, so the sunglasses were a reward for being such a great sport. I remember when I was little, I used to grumble and sulk everytime ibu took us to buy new school uniforms. Hmmm, cukup membosankan.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not grumbling about having to pay for all this stuff. It's just that, buying all that stuff, making sure everything fits Dania well, just hits a nerve and makes me realise that my baby girl is no longer a baby anymore.

How time flies!!

Whoa! The thought of all the expenses .... and it's not even for regular school yet. Very exciting to see them off to school for the first time, ya?
