Tia's 8th year..

It's the 25th day of Ramadan and it is also your birthday Tia! Happy birthday Tia!!

So last year, you didn't really get to roam the school as much as you wanted. Just so you know, I was worried that by the end of the 3rd semester 2021/22, when asked which you prefer between face-to-face and online, you picked online as your first choice. Mi-mi pray that you will change back to your original love for physical school.

For the past one year, with online school and so those Miyam, you actually helped me a lot in engaging with Miyam. Each time when she had her 30 minutes online class session, you helped me out to set up everything for her. Thank you for that Tia.

You have always been carefree and high-spirited. We all notice that you are a fast learner. It is a good thing. Then again, my worry is because, you learn to play more new games too. 😅😅 It's not that I don't want to not let you play.. it is just that I don't like to see you or Cheche, or Koko to be caught up with too much games.

Tia, this is a photo of you and your resolution for 2022. I want you to know that I am proud that you are able to come out with thoughtful azam. Yes Tia, you are a thoughtful daughter. Mi-mi pray that you will be able to give your very best to work on your azam. 😻

In case the future you are wondering, why the number 2.. well.. hehe.. I shall leave that to you asking the future me about that item. 😋😋

Between you and Cheche-Koko, things have somewhat changed now that you are able to play the game they are playing, reading comics they are reading, enjoying the memes they love.. so yeah.. alhamdulillah. 

Continue to be good and do good Tia. We love ya!

Going places...

As many has heard it, there's a beautiful Malay proverb that goes " Jauh perjalanan, Luas pengalaman ". In my superficial way of translating it into English, it will be something like "as you go places, you'll understand more" I suppose. Please forgive me for doing it no justice.. :P To be honest, in the beginning, when I had the opportunity to learn the clever Malay proverbs, I find it very difficult to grasp as well as to put the 'chosen' wordings and the meaning side by side. For example, why does it say " Harapkan pagar, Pagar yang makan padi " when I have never seen a paddy field with fences surrounding it. Fighting against my ignorance, I remember how I just memorise most of these proverbs together with it 'stated' meaning just to ensure that I pass the BM test despite the fact that I find it hard to accept the relevance behind some of the quotes. But because I realised that my brain didn't work very well in memorising


I remember talking to a colleague about life and kids in which she stated that at times, she felt like wanting to be away from all her kids, wanting to drop everything and just leave. Knowing her, I was very surprised. She is the kind of a sweet mother who gives it all to her kids. I know for sure she adores all her children. Then came the covid. The term "burn-out" was used much too often. With everything reached out mostly through the network and from home, working time became hay-wire. I thought I could relate to what my colleague had once shared with me.  As I am typing this, the only sound I could hear right now are the tapping sound of the keyboard, some bird's singing voice from time to time, the trickling water drop from the fish tank as the water flowing from its pump and the soft swirling sound from the rotating fan. Yes, the house is too quiet. This is how a Sunday morning would be when we are all at home. I usually allow them to sleep in.. I didn't plan to

Faraid in Islam - is it fair?

The first time I mentioned the term " faraid " or inheritance in this blog was when Jia asked me 'that' question ( click here  to read about 'that' question). 😅 It was, however, just a brief mention.. When I recall back, I remember attending one talk where it was mentioned of a hadith which stated that " faraid " will be the first knowledge (' ilm ) that will be 'removed' from that face of this earth when the time finally comes. That statement really stuck in my head. I knew I have read it in the Qur'an and I am confident that Allah will preserve the al-Qur'an. So my brain was asking - how can this be? How is it even possible especially when it is in the Protected and Sacred Book? My mistake was to stow the questions away. I didn't remember asking the speaker nor looking into it. A few years later, a young man knocked on my 'opened' office door (yup, I have always preferred to open my office door). He requested a few

Quick Post..

Hmm... I finally managed to retrieve my lost photos from my HTC phone. Browsing through the folders, I found this. A sketch drew by Jia after it was confirmed that I lost the baby.  "New baby sister" My heart started to ache. I could so remember where was I and how Jia blurted out those words when she handed me the sketch. It was too vivid. But when I think of the burden and pain of the mothers in Palestine and Syria who lost not a single child but much more, immediately I knew that my 'trial' is nothing when compared to their lost. SubhanaAllah.. Alhamdulillah.. AllahuAkbar.. May Allah reward them with a better favour. Allahumma Aamiin... #prayforgaza #prayforsyria
