To the one I love... Let's grow old together

Let's grow old together... beginning with today.
Let's work slowly with each other and build a relationship that we can both enjoy being a part of.

Let's share love and understand that neither of us is perfect; we are both subject to human frailties.
Let's hold each other close and whisper though the night--pledging our love, honoring our commitment.

Let's encourage each other to pursue our dreams, even when we're weary from trying.
Let's expect the best that we both have to give and still love when we fall short of our expectations.

Let's be friends and respect each other's individual personality and give one another room to grow.
Let's be candid with each other and point out strengths and weaknesses.

Let's understand each other's personal philosophy, even if we don't agree.
Let's lie awake long into the night sharing our innermost secrets.

Let's be friends as well as lovers.
Let's laugh at time and plan with each other and wonder how we ever got along without this love we've found.

Let's never take for granted these moments that we've shared, but always be reminded of how intensely we have learned to live, how completely we have learned to love.
Let's grow old together... and look back on life and smile.

Ramadhan Al-Mubarak

Alhamdulillah, Ramadhan arrives again. Selamat Menyambut Ramadhan Al-Mubharak to all muslimin and muslimat. May this month brings you abudence of barakah and peace.

Saturday, I planned to stop by at the office before going to Masjid India. However, around 10, I have throbbing headache. Took pills and took a nap for an hour. When I woke up, although the pain reduced but it was still there. Called my team saying I won't be in. Aida texted me to remind me about the kain they chose for my wedding dress. Called the shop at BSC to make appointment.

Keluar rumah - hujan and it's the eve of Hari Kebangsaan. So quite few keta on the road. Reached BSC 3-ish. Met Alice there. She was about to go home after done her shopping. Showed me where Harrits Galleria is. Saw their pick but loved the other one which is on the display. The colour is nice with nice beads the only thing is, the pattern is horizontal. Mak ni kan dah comel..nak pakai belang horizontal pulak... bertambah2 lah kecomelannya. Told the lady to hold and if I'm interested I'll stop by either Saturday or Sunday.

Sampai Jalan TAR - masya Allah. Orang dgn keta macam semut. Tents for Ramadhan Bazaar dah naik. Dropped Kak Chik kat masjid and terus gi cari parking. Have to settle for parking at the hotel nearby coz few roads are closed. Sigh..memang menyusahkan. Stopped for lunch first sebab tak jamah apa2 lagi since morning. Then the mission to find the material for wedding dress started with Jakel - zilch, Euro Moda - zilch, Harrits Galleria again - only the one that I chosen earlier is the nicest, Biwanis - bammm!!! Found it! Did some calculation ... x+y+z-*-****%%$#@. Pening! Ambik je lah. Alhamdulillah..semua baju for 3 occassions dah ada. Suddenly I realized, the headache is gone. Waaaah! Macam magic!

Yesterday, I have small family gathering at my Bukit Rimau house. After a long chat with cik abang, I fell asleep close to 7 am. However, at 9 am, I was awaken by a phone call from the guard house. Azmir and family arrived! And..I have to cook nasi lemak!!! Kelam kabut makcik pagi tu... Nasib baik a night before I bought Mc D nuggets and french fries. Sekurang2nya adalah appertiser for them to eat.

Samihah below was trying to get my attention while I'm cooking. Her cheek luka dek kena gigit dengan her sepupu who is 2 months older than her. Brutal! Mangsa dera Kg Baru!

Honey called again while I was cooking. Kesian abang I sorang ni. Kempunan dia nak makan nasi lemak. Tak pe bang ye, sabar. Nanti2 kita masakkan untuk awak, ok?

Utk org yg tak dapat makan tu...jamu mata je lah ye..... he he he.. or rather..ho ho ho..

After cooking, tak sempat makan, terus gi the Curve for project mencantikkan diri. But agak hampeh! Then after grabbed a quick bite terus gi Masjid India sekali lagi untuk cari bahan berkat, bunga telur and kad jemputan. Walaupun gerimis, biarpun manusia teramatlah ramainya, walaupun parking sikit punya jauh, namun mak gagahkan kaki ke destinasiku..Semua House!!! Ha ha.. Bought almost 80% what I came here for and more, including 1000 goodie bags. Ada ka diorang tak nak antar kat keta? Punya kellas customer service dia.. So sapa yg nak beli kat Sayang You tu..tak yah la beli banyak2 unless you're parking at Semua House coz according to them the rule is they will only help to carry your stuff only within Semua House complex.

Left Jalan TAR around 6 plus. Honey called while I was driving..he bought a speaker to ensure his voice is crispier..haaha.. Apa2 lah sayang.. asalkan bahagia. So sepanjang jalan from Ampang to Bukit Rimau I was entertained by him with all kind of songs from Broery. Siap ada cadangan why don't we sing during our reception... Mintak maaf lah nyah... Tak kuasa makkkkk!!!

Sampai rumah, solat asar and maghrib and terus buat projek bunga telur. Kak Cik pula siapkan the ones yang nak kasi family kat Singapore.

Cantik you...! Rasa sayang nak kasi kat orang..hahahah. Boleh macam tu? Lepas siap 10 cucuk, mata dah berat. Terlelap, nyah! Adoss. Luckily honey called around 3 am, bangun solat isyak and teraweeh before bersahur.

Check out the bunga telur yg begitu indah itew... Talentednya I....

Hari ni..orang lain kat rumah rilek2.. Kita kena kerja. So hasilnya... bertenet la dulu!!!

New Addition to Zakaria's Family

Alhamdulillah, my sister in-law has given birth to a daughter, Sahilatur Rizqi, adding the number of nieces that I have and the number of grand daughters for my dad to 4. Okay..tak lama lagi boleh buat netball team! Also, Huda, the wife of my second brother, Azmir is also expecting. She is hoping that she'll get a son this time. Apa-apa sajalah Huda... asalkan selamat. Whatever it is, abah already has two grandsons ha ha ha! Kalah lagi! Apa ni? How to be the most favourite menantu!??!!

Last weekend was kinda hectic. Amatlah memenatkan. Luckily, Azmir drove. Nak kena bayar duit minyak and toll pun, lantak lah. Asalkan tak penat badan. Reached abah's house around 10 am. Rizqi's hair has already gone by then. As an official Labu Labi of Zakaria's house, Kak Chik, my youngest sister and I proceeded to cook for lunch. Kak Chik with her famous nasi goreng and I cooked sambal sotong, masak lemak ayam and sayur kobis.

Ustaz and his wife arrived untuk pecah mulut Rizqi later. Served them pulut and kari daging.

After cooking, terus pengsan. Mama woke me up around 3 pm because my mom's youngest brother is about to leave. Salam with them and terus kena paksa jadi pengapit to go to kenduri. Since one of them is my old childhood's friend, Kak Not, mak pegi je lah nyah. Pakai baju pink lagi, nyah. Baju tu actually for bertandang tapi mak dah tak dak baju kat Kulim ni. So, hantam sajalah..

Kak Not's daughter dah besar panjang. Exact replica of her masa dia kecik2 dulu. So good to catch up with old friend. Since she got married, memang tak pernah berjumpa. Plus, sebab member ni pernah introducekan dengan mamat ni yang later become my stalker, terus mak keep low profile. Better end up with someone who love you more? True to certain extent, but not someone who already plan what to do after we got married even before I know how he looks like. Adooi! Antara kes2 Edisi Siasat mak....

After Kak Not's house, accompanied mama to her friend's house. Jumpak kawan lama dia pulak. So apa lagi... bukak buku sejarah la. There, met Zulkifli Zain and his wife Normala Omar. Mama is so excited that Normala and Zulkifli salam us before they left. Apa saja, ma.....

Reached home, I felt like eating my masak lemak ayam. Guess what... 1 ekor ayam mak masak..satu ketul pun tak de. Toncet pun tak tinggal. Pelahap la pulak adik2 aku ni.... Kak Chik who just arrived with abah after sending Idi back to his school also dissapointed. Rupa2nya si Man and Mir punya kerja. Patutla muka pun berminyak! Tak de rasa bersalah langsung... toyeee je. Umur dah tua bangka pun tak berubah2 lagi.

That night we are preparing for kenduri aqiqah. Men semua makan kat masjid. Only family members and all the ladies datang makan kat rumah. Sodaaaap. Funny thing is Samihah and Aeisyah so afraid of vacuum cleaner. Muka sorang2 fobia. At one time, both of them ended up crying on my lap. Check out their faces (tapi apasal Mir pun buat muka fobia? Over!):

After that, photo session among siblings - trying to give the best side profile. All hands down to Mir. Mana boleh lawan kecomelan dia tu..!!!! Want to know what happened to Aeisyah? Takut sangat sampai tertidur terus. Kesiaaan.

After kenduri, mak pengsan. Cik abang telefon pun antara sedar dgn tak sedar je. Sorry ye honey...

Esoknya we left for KL around 3pm. Hujan sepanjang jalan. Azmir bawak keta... Huda, Kak Chik, Samihah and me??? Apa lagi ? ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
