Good preventive action from Amirul Widad’s daycare. This is good and prevention is better than cure.
Indirectly, Im telling myself that Amirul & Widad will be ok and will be in the pink of health under their supervision and care. Although, Widad has frequent flu
Its because the daycare is just in front of my house, I saw they have housekeeping day for 2days in row. They even wash Widad’s doldol. Bersih and wangi jer doldol Widad .
