Salam Aidilfitri 2012

Assalammualaikum and Hi there!

We’ve reached the 27th Ramadhan today. Alhamdulillah. We’re definitely just a few days away from Syawal as it is celebrated to mark the end of the Holy month of Ramadhan and it’s a time to rejoice for successfully observing the fasting month itself. But as we celebrate, let us not forget the less fortunate as well.

Insya Allah, we’ll be celebrating raya this year in Johor and later in Pahang. Gonna leave the big city tomorrow night right after terawih.

To all Muslim, beloved families, friends, colleagues and bloggers,

  • Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir & Batin.
  • Drive carefully!
  • Eat moderately, eat liberally and eat generously during Raya.
  • Happy holidays to all.

Raya wishes 2012

Lil’ Hero – A’fif Rayyan & A’kif Hayyan

Salam everyone,

Our beloved nephew – A’fif Rayyan and A’kif Hayyan. Basically, they’re brothers and a son of my younger SIL. A’fif is way talkative nowadays where he just reached 3 years old and he questioned us with a lot of things which we couldn’t answer indirectly. Tough! Way too tough! And A’kif is a little boy, ermm i mean tough lil’ boy. I hardly heard him crying. We even brought him to a waterfall and he laughed happily like a 3-5 years old boy! A’kif dearie, you are just a few months la sayang. He didnt scared of anything i guess and he adapt to peoples and surrounding easily.

These days, A’fif loves to share things with me. He always make up stories telling me this and that while he was on my lap. Asked me to play around with him and many mores. The first words which always came out from his mouth is shouting and yelling by calling me “Mak Longgggggggggggg!!!”.

I remembered a few funny conversation with him:
Case 1
A’fif : Kenapa ada benda hitam kat mata Pak Long
Hubby : Its “tahi lalat” la A’fif
A’fif : Huh? Tahi lalat? Kenapa plak lalat nak e ek dalam mata Pak Long? Jadi, dia
        kencing jugak la dalam mata Pak Long? Kalau kencing jadi aper?
Hubby : LOL! (Speechless at the same time)

Case 2
It happen when we’re collecting durian at dusun recently in Tangkak.
A’fif : Pak Long, pagi-pagi makan durian ni Pak Long dah gosok gigi ke belum?
Hubby : Dah lar. Mandi je belum.
A’fif : Huh? Belum mandi? Mana boleh makan?
Hubby : Sapa kata tak boleh makan? Baru syok makan durian tak mandi pagi lagik.
A’fif : Mak Long, Pak Long tue dah la tak mandi, kuat makan durian plak tue. Kita
       tinggal je dia sini duk dengan Atok tue.
Me    : La, kenapa plak nak tinggal plak Pak Long kat sini? Sian dia.
A’fif : Ye la, Pak Long slalu cakap kat A’fif kalau A’fif macam2 (naughty), tak
        boleh nie la tue lar. Kita kurung je Pak Long dalam pondok tue.
Me    : LOL! (Dendam jugak budak nie kat Pak Long dia. Sbb Pak Long slalu ugut dia
       kalau degil. Ugut kena tinggal lar aper lar)

Love them soo much!

Presenting A’fif Rayyan,

See how he react in just less than 5 minutes while having breakfast at Village Park Uptwon Damansara!

And this is both of them crashing into my beds early in the morning with a lots of talcum powder in the face.

Bye Bye 2011 & Welcome 2012

Salam everyone,

I was watching this New Year’s Eve movie starring Hillary Swank, Josh Dhumel, Jon Bon Jovi, Katherine Heighl, Halle Berry and a few others big names in the film industry! I’m stumbled across the Claire Morgan (played by Hillary Swank) speech just before the New Year’s eve and the ball drops which its found to be soo sweet and meaningful to all of us,

It’s suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne
And celebrate the new year
To stop and reflect on the year that has gone by
To remember both our triumphs and our missteps
Our promises made and broken
The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures
Or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt
Coz that is what new years is all about
Getting another chance
A chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more
And stop worrying about what if and start embracing what would be
So when that ball drops at midnight and it will drop
Let’s remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other
And not just tonight but all year long
“.
