It's back to school again!...and our back to school was very special with the special box which was waiting for us at school from our new friends at Sekolah Kebangsaan Sena School in Malaysia. This box brought very happy Eid memories with the beautiful decorated Eid cards. It opened great discussions about what we did during the days of Eid and how we celebrated it with our families and friends. They also sent us wonderful gifts such as stories, stickers, wallets, and a red box with hearts and flowers.
They gave us the chance to travel to Malaysia while we're sitting in the classroom reading their country brochures: Sarawak, the land of the hornbills and the largest state in the country. Kelantan, cradle of Malay culture, a charming destination with colorful traditions, interesting pastimes and superb handicrafts. Sabah, the land below the wind...the tropical rainforests. Perak, the land of grace with picturesque islands and beaches. Johor, the southern gateway. Terengganu, the gem of the East Coast. Negeri Sembilan, Perlis, Melaka, Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysia's dazzling capital city.
Ms. Muainah Ismail, thank you so much for making our back to school a very special one...and we'll send you cards and Arabic stories soon.
Eid Mubarak to you all with our best wishes from Lebanon!
