Hello September

Assalamualaikum & hi!

We're on the 1st day of September & on the 9th chapter of 2014. 3 months more & hallo 2015! Oh noooo! I'm so not ready for 2015. No, not yet

September is going to be a very busy month. In fact, this morning pun mek dah jonah berlari-lari anak dari Kompleks Mahkamah - Bangunan Mara - Kompleks Mahkamah - Jabatan Insolvensi - Kompleks Mahkamah. Itulah pentingnya court shoes yang selesa supaya mek tidak terbabas semasa berlari-lari anak itu. Alhamdulillah, terbakar banyak kalori including bihun cambo cry-me-a-river pedasnya + nasi kenduri yang mek makan semalam

Ok la. Have a nice day, people! Take care! Jangan nakal-nakal!

P/s: Stress kerja aduyaiii. Lambatnya nak bersara

Merdeka 57

 Selamat Hari Merdeka ke-57, Malaysia

It's been a tough & difficult year for Malaysia. Despite the trials, ups & downs that we've to go through this year, may they be the X factor for us to stay firm in unity regardless of races, religions, social standings & ages

And without our brave forefathers who fought very hard like real gentlemen in order to set our country free from British colonial rule & gain Independence on 31 August 1957, this independence won't be achieved. In fact, nothing can be traded to pay for their sacrifice, blood & tears. Al-Fatihah to them & may Allah reward them with the highest level of Jannah. Amin... 

Praying for a better & awesome future with you! Amin! Merdeka!

The Engagement : The Hantaran

The Sister doing the last minute touch-up to the hantaran, 10/05/2014

Prior to my Engagement, I did a lot of studies on Instagram & on the internet, just to get some ideas of how I want my hantaran to be. I would really love to have fresh flowers as the decoration on the hantaran trays but after considering the factors that they are expensive & won't last long, we opted for artificial flowers instead

Since the theme colour was peach, the artificial flowers we chose were of bright & bold colours, a combination that I totally fond of. The decoration & plastic trays were bought from WS Handricaft, K.Bharu (in front of Pusat Perubatan An-Nisa), the same place where we bought the things for the DIY Engagement mini dais

For the hantaran, A.H & I agreed to exchange gifts/ which we deemed necessary so that we won't go overboard with our budget. Ours were just simple, nothing to boast about really but other people (especially the fiance/fiance-to-be) may have their own preferences when it comes to hantaran

From A.H
  • Ring 
  • Sireh Junjung
  • Bunga Telur 
  • Victoria's Secret Pure Daydream Fragrance Mist, Hand Lotion & Body Wash 
  • 2 pasang kain 
  •  Fruits 
  • Chocolates 
  • Cakes

    From me
    • Ring
    • Sireh Junjung
    • Kain baju melayu putih
    • Sampin
    • Sejadah
    • Red Velvet Cupcakes (I requested for Doctor+Lawyer theme. Hehe!)
    • Chocolates
    • Lup Chup (Thai dessert)

    The Sister did 90% of the hantaran decoration, so she deserves all the credits & thank yous I can't remember how much we spent on all the decoration items but DIY-ing is definitely cheaper than upah orang tolong decorate, especially if it's done by at bridal boutique. But of course bayar mahai, outcome pun should be cantik ayte?

    The Victory of Gaza

    Assalamualaikum !

    After 7 weeks of tears, suffering beyond any word could describe, 2145 syuhada, around 11000 injured, 15670 damaged housing units etc, Gaza has finally tasted its victory! Allahuakbar! :') 

    {وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنصُرُ مَن يَشَاء وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ}
    "Dan pada hari itu bergembiralah orang beriman dengan pertolongan Allah. Dia telah memenangkan sesiapa yang dikehendaki dan Dia adalah yang Maha Berkuasa lagi Maha Mengasihi".

    Can you see the happiness on their faces? It had been so long since the last time they feel such contentment & I pray, may it last forever. Amin! 

    I think it does feel like a dream, especially for the people in Gaza. It sure feels like entering into another phase of life altogether where their lives, rights & freedom are no longer restricted & threatened. Their lives are resumed with hopefully a lot of happy & promising days & years ahead. Alhamdulillah & InsyaAllah!

    Umar At 10 Months Old

    26/08/2014 - Accompanying Umar enjoying the strong wind at the veranda
    He was shouting, laughing, clapping & fefeeling, thus the I-am-not-ready-yet faces of him
    No longer bayi mesra kamera. Tsk!

    My nephew, Umar will turn 11 months old on 01/09, Alhamdulillah. Sebagai ibu saudara yang penyayang serta awesome, haruslah turut serta dalam mengemaskini perkembangan Umar:

    • From a sleeping-all-day-long to a hardly-can-sit-still-who-now-has-7-teeth baby, Umar definitely has grown up well bagaikan juara! Alhamdulillah. Oh not to forget, has been causing everyone's arms sore from his weight. Kesian Tok Ma & Tok Abah sakit-sakit pinggang & bahu dukung Umar. A bony little man this guy 

    • Umar hasn't started walking but he's now at the stage where he likes to hold on to something & walk while holding to it. Apakah term yang sesuai untuk itu? Maafin, Mama Sue belum install any baby apps on hp, maka vocabulary Mama Sue agak terhad. He has its own style of crawling. Crawling sambil tangan macam marching gitu. It's usually when he's excited

    • Umar also likes to jump. Instead of "Tatih! Tatih! Tatih! *while us holding on his hands*, he will jump instead. Jump sambil menjerit keriangan. Dengan badan beliau yang berat itu, mengah juga kami dibuatnya. Forget about exercise, we've 11kg dumb bell here who will laugh at loud almost at anything, even at the sound of people sneeze

    • Dari segi hiburan, Umar isn't a gadget obsessed but he lovesssss watching zikir on Astro Oasis so much. So much so that he will become cranky if we don't bring him upstairs to watch it in the evening & he will sit quietly in amazed in front of tv macam tak pernah tengok walhal dari umur 3 bulan kot tengok? Beriman betul Umar ini, adakah bakal menjejaki langkah Abinya menjadi pelajar KISAS kelak?

    • Umar loves food. His breakfast will usually be laksam lemak. Amboi kemainnn! Nasib baik dok kat Kelate, you can buy laksam anywhere. Cer duduk kat KL, makan biskut Ruskies je la awak Umar. He also loves munching on biskut keras yang orang selalu cicah air kopi tu. Biskut kering ke namanya yang orang selalu jual ikut gram tu. Mama Sue berharap awak akan tawaduk selamanya macam ni Umar & tidak berpaling kepada biskut yang mahal seperti Famous Amos suatu hari nanti

    • Umar loves cat tapi dia geli-geli. He will laugh when either Boboy or Tommy comes approaching him. Tapi tak boleh biar macam tu je sebab end up, Umar will squeeze them like how he squeezes his bantal busuk. Bahaya kerana dikhuatiri bakal menyumbang kepada penderaan haiwan peliharaan

    • His Ummi recently brought him a mini motorcycle (not battery operated). A few incidents happened in the first few weeks sebab masa tu beliau tak reti lagi balance badan; motor fell onto him while his trying to turun, motor terbabas etc. It was funny actually but of course I had to restrain myself from laughing. Hahah! But now beliau sudah pandai riding his mini motorcycle persis racer kategori 1 tahun ke bawah. Juga digunakan sebagai umpan untuk beliau duduk diam semasa Tok Ma suapkan makanan
    •  Tok Ma has recently taught Umar how to high-5 & he will plant a kiss on cheek when we say 'Umar, sayang'. Sayang = kiss. Ni pun ajaran Tok Ma. Tapi Umar will only sayang when he's in a good mood. Kalau beliau malas layan, beliau akan tepuk muka kita instead T_T

    • Bath time is Umar's favourite. Sekali dengan kita sekali lencun sebab beliau akan hempap bambam dalam air hingga menghasilkan gelombang air mencurah-curah keluar dari basin mandi. Love rain & akan membebel atau mintak nak tengok hujan during raining. A.H recently bought him a mini pool & Umar telah mandi dengan riang gembira sampai demam the next day. Hehe!

    • Umar talks a lot but of course in a language only he can understand. A few days ago, we managed to hear it said 'Abah! Abah!'. Pandai bodek Tok Abah, mentang-mentang nak pujuk bawak jalan-jalan. Oh, his voice is also loud! No doubt he inherits that from his Ummi -.-'
