Breaking News

With 2012 right round the corner, Farid my eldest son, pleasantly surprised me with his decision to get married. Nak awal tahun pulak tu !!

I was dazed with conflicting ideas regarding his wedding preparations. Mana tidaknya... my Mum with her flamboyant ideas of 'this and that' (in full agreement with my Dad!) ; Faiz pulak nak buat yang simple (which I know would sync with my in-laws) ; Yasmin ada idea-ideanya yang tersendiri for a "Wow" wedding ; Kaled, my anak angkat and wedding planner, with his plans ; Ani, my sister hinting about a trip to Bandung to shop for stuff .... tinggal Firdaus jer yang belum join in to present his ideas!

Ini belum lagi mengambil kira plans pihak 'sebelah sana' - which we have yet to meet for the first time! Baru dok pilih tarikh yang convenient to visit Kartina's Dad in KL and her family in Butterworth.

It's amazing - sehari dua yang lepas, myself and anak-anak sibuk bincang about having a "House Warming" khenduri sempena berpindah ke rumah baru. Now, topik house warming pun dah pegi ntah ke mana dah ! Tenggelam terus!

My 2012 year is definitely starting with full swing in anticipation of the upcoming wedding.

Semoga Allah memberi kesihatan serta kekuatan untuk kami mengendalikan majlis perkahwinan ini sebaik mungkin, insyaAllah.

My Birthday Present

I went to sleep last night with a smile on my face.... and was already awake by 5am this morning... fresh, alert and happy... fondly remembering the ‘surprise gift’ with gladness.

Life is full of special days -- one right after the other... holidays, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays etc. Along the way, we collect fond memories of the past and remembering the ‘not-so-good’ ones as well.

To Farid, Kartina, Faris, Yasmin and Firdaus who took the time to select, as well as burnt-out their pockets..... Thank You from the bottom of my heart for remembering my birthday and getting me this special gift.

Change Of Address

Adventures, especially into new territory, are scary!

I am feeling nervous about moving to my new house....

This is like a new life-changing event :-
New surroundings...
new neighbors...
plenty of adjustments to be made beyond my comfort zone...
away from what has been familiar and comfortable.

My closest buddies have been slowly injecting new ideas and I must say, my mind feels fresh from the new way I look at things! We need new opportunities to feed the creativity of our souls and we need new adventures for our personal growth. Thanks to them, I have discovered new parts of myself. How great is that?? ( I like !! ).

My three children have totally moved all their belongings to their respective rooms, unpacked and have been staying there for the past few nights. My sister came back over the weekend and have stayed there too. Tinggal myself and Faiz jer yang masih belum berkemas sebab we've been too busy managing and getting other parts of the house ready.

Yasmin asked me, "Mama, when are you going to move all your clothes here?" to which I replied "Ha? what baju? no worries! ... just a phonecall and my bajussssss will be sent over from the boutique at Queensbay to fill up my new wardrobe!" She freaked out!!! muahahahaha... eh! tak! taaak!... Mama melawak jer!Free Orkut and My Space animated emotions Graphics Glitters

(eemmm... kalau betul betul, tak boleh ke? ok! ok!.. sabaq sat!)


... am looking forward to do some baking... u know... stuff like pizza, pies, scones, lasagne... for my Dry Kitchen freezer storage. Lapar nanti, just pop it few minutes into the oven and ...

Buat sementara ni, kitorang belum pick a suitable date to have a House Warming Kenduri. No rush actually...

This Sunday (11th), there'll be a "Getting To Know Your Neighbours Get-together Dinner". Looking forward to meet our new neighbours and hope all goes well.
