Happy Mother's Day / Selamat Hari Ibu!

One of the good things about working at home, is the fact that you can potentially spend the most of your time with your own mother! No longer your relation with your mother during your busy adult years revolves only around a monthly deposit to your mother's bank account, but you can physically attend to her care at home. All of us at Pajamanation Malaysia would like to wish all mothers who homemake, homework, homestay or work anywhere, Happy Mother's Day! "Ibu... Engkaulah Ratu Hatiku..." (Mother, You're the Queen of my Heart!)

The following are the notable quotes on "mothers":-

A father may turn his back on his child; brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies; husbands may desert their wives and wives their husbands. But a mother's love endures through all; in good repute, in bad repute, in the face of the world's condemnation, a mother still loves on, and still hopes that her child may turn from his evil ways, and repent; still she remembers the infant smiles that once filled her bosom with rapture, the merry laugh, the joyful shout of his childhood, the opening promise of his youth; and she can never be brought to think him all unworthy. - Washington Irving

"M" is for the million things she gave me,
means only that she's growing old,
is for the tears she shed to save me,
is for her heart of purest gold;
is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
means right, and right she'll always be,

Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"
A word that means the world to me.

Howard Johnson (c. 1915)
