Adventure Honeymoon Day 1

We left house around 11am. Reached LCCT half hour later. My father drove us there. Checked in and waited for our flight at 1.15pm. 1.30pm we flew to Krabi. Yay!

Touchdown at 2.30pm, Malaysian time. No I did not changed my watch to follow Thai time zone. They are behind our time 1 hour only. Then from the airport, we took a cab to Krabi Town where we have to wait 45 minutes for the minibus to arrive. Ughh!! In the middle of nowhere, oh yes we're afraid! Anything can happen. Haha.. yes I am thinking outside the box. We paid RM70 for the minibus to Koh Lanta where we will stay : Cha-Da Beach Resort. For the taxi, we paid RM20. Journey to the Hau Hin Car Ferry took us 1 hour. Lucky it's a straight road and we do feel like we're driving in a countryside in Malaysia. Feels like home but with Thailand signboard.

Then we have to wait for another ferry to the other side of the island, Koh Lanta Noi. 15 mins journey. Then, another ferry to Koh Lanta Yai. It's where the Cha-Da Beach resort located. From the ferry it was 15 mins drive too. We shared the minibus with another 10 people which were all Thai's. They taught Mr. Fruitheart was local people there and started talking in Thai's. Haha.. yeah, people do mistaken him as if he's Chinese.

We reached Cha-Da Beach Resort around 5.45pm and was greeted by the manager Mr. Kung.. Sawadee Krap.. I hope I got it right! Our room number is 6103. He told us our room was upgraded from Silver Suite to Gold Suit FOC!!!! Awesome! Our room is facing the swimming pool which we can jump from the balcony. Super awesome! I love my honeymoon!

We ordered Club Sandwich and Phad-Si-Ew: Fried noodles with chicken for dinner. We were so hungry, skipped our lunch. After that, we took a walk around the resort. It was HUGE! They have 2 huge swimming pool. All the gold suite is facing the main swimming pool, so everyone can jump from the balcony. Hehe.. They also have kids pool, playground and few other villas. However, the beach is not beautiful. Oh well, as long as the room is awesome, I am more than happy. Oopss.. we are more than happy!

P/S: Will update pictures soon!

Three Days After Wedding

Wow!! Finally after sometime I have internet connection. Don't have any phone line here even though I have activated my international roaming. Not sure what I've done wrong. So here's the update after 3 days I'm being Mrs. Nizam.

On 27th Sept, checked out from Concorde Shah Alam around 10am. We skipped breakfast there and went to drive through McD. Reached Gombak and packed Mr. Fruitheart's things and cleared some stuff in his room. Orang bujang lah katakan sebelum tu kan. After lunch, went to Salak Tinggi, washed some clothes, cleared my small man's stuff. Anak bujang lelaki sorang itu mane lah tahu nak mengemas baju kan. Tak tahu lah macam mana nanti tinggal dia 4 hari pergi Krabi. Habis sepah agaknya my room.

After that, went to Giant Nilai to buy some snacks and PS2 games for my small man. Tea break at Oldtown, our favourite place. We had asam laksa and vanilla ice cream for my small man. Back home, packed both our stuff and double checked everything before we left for Krabi. Wohoo!

Marriage from my small man's point of view:
Small Man: Uncle Nizam, mama done with wedding?
Mr. Fruitheart: Yes, done.
Small Man: Emm.. I want baby girl.
Mr. Fruitheart: Don't want baby boy?
Small Man: I want boy and girl.

My handsome little small man!

Just MARRIED!!

Shhh!! Yes I know, all of you would say 'WTH are you doing updating your blog?' One of my friend had warned me, don't forget to changed your status in facebook. While another one said, no need to update blog. Just do whatever married couple do.

My solemnization ceremony was done yesterday, 25th September 2010 at Masjid Sultan Hishamuddin Salak Tinggi. Oh boy I was so nervous, my hands were sweating, and there were zillions baby butterflies in my tummy!! Plus, Mr. Fruitheart was 5 minutes late. I was of course worried. Sharp at 12.00PM, I am officially Mrs. Nizam. Sekali lafaz je OK!


The so long awaited moment for Mr. Fruitheart


At wedding reception, almost over

I can only update these two pictures which were taken on my iPhone (not iPhone 4). Yes, that is one of the hottest stuff now other than my wedding day. After the wedding reception, both of us together with our photographer went to Masjid Shah Alam for our outdoor picture session. It ended around 6PM. Went back to hotel soon after that.

In this entry, I would like to thanked everyone.. my close families and close friends who attended our wedding. Thank you so much for making our day wonderful. I hope everyone have a great time and sorry if there are anything that you don't feel happy about. Last but not least, take care.. will be away on four days honeymoon. Don't miss us! Pictures will be update soon, or if you have facebook you can see all those 'tag' pictures. Adios!

Malay Wedding

A little information about Malay Wedding'..
The traditional wedding ceremony is in two parts. The first part is the akad nikah (marriage contract), which is the legal and religious part of the wedding. The second part is the bersanding (enthronement), which is a family celebration.

The adat merisik (asking ceremony, or more literally 'spying custom') is the traditional Malay system for arranging marriages. Nowadays, the man might suggest to his family who he would like them to consider, and it may be that a romantic link already exists between the man and woman. Having decided upon one particular woman, the merisik, or investigation process, takes place. The merisik does not constitute a formal proposal.

The adat bertunang (engagement custom) is normally held at the bride's home.

A Malay wedding proper begins with the akad nikah (marriage contract) ceremony. The groom signs the marriage contract and agrees to provide the bride with a mas kahwin (mahar,literally 'marriage gold' in form of money or goods or anything as requested by the bride).It is opposite to dowry where the mas khawin is paid by the groom to the bride. The mas khawin is a symbol to show that the men is willing and are prepared to build a family with the lady he chose to get married to. The contract signing is done before a religious official and is accompanied by prayer.

If the bersanding is to take place the next day, the couple's hands are dyed with henna during the berinai besar (great henna-ing) ceremony. The bride's hair is also trimmed, eyebrows shaped and make-up applied by a beautician, known as the mak andam. Then the bride puts on her tudung (hijab or headscarf) to cover their hair and a selendang, or embroidered and beaded shawl over that. A crown is also placed on top of the shawl. If the bersanding does not take place on the day following the nikah, these preparation customs are delayed until the bersanding.

The bersanding (enthronement) ceremony begins with the groom's procession with friends, relatives, musicians and people waving bunga manggar (palm blossom) to meet the bride. The main part of the bersanding involves the seating of the bridal couple on a dais and sprinkling them with yellow rice and scented water by family members, relatives and guests as a sign of blessing. Each guest will receive a bunga telur (egg flower), a decorated egg with a fabric flower, as a sign of fertility. The couple are considered royalty for the day, and so various royal customs are performed for them, including musicians playing court music and 'bodyguards' performing a display of pencak silat (traditional Malay martial arts).

After the bersanding ceremony, the wedded couple and their guests attend a celebratory feast called the makan beradab (formal meal). This involves the bride and groom feeding each other sweetened rice. The celebrations are concluded by posing for family photographs.

Yesterday's Wedding Update.. 24 Hour Before

OMG!OMG! Another 24 hour I'm getting married. I should blogged about it yesterday, but I am too super busy and tired.

Yes, I have been cleaning, cooking and driving here and there. Which, in our custom the bride were not allowed to do all that. Older people said it is to avoid something bad happen. But, in my case.. I have to do almost everything myself. I pray hard, nothing bad would happen. So far, alhamdulillah.

I had become a BRIDEZILLA yesterday. First, my father told me the tent will only be up Saturday morning. They thought the wedding will be on Sunday. Excuse me!! That is someone else's wedding. Plus, they said it's raining. My father said it's ok if they wanted to send on Saturday morning. I said NO! I want it by this evening!!!! My father said, what to do.. I told him he should've said, send it today no matter what.

When my father went to service my car, a lorry came with the tent. I said to myself, they must have heard me from far!!!! The power of BRIDEZILLA.. It was already cloudy and soon rain started to pour. They have to stopped for a while.

1st tent



2nd tent
Previously, I had asked my brother to drove me to Secret Recipe to pick up my cake. And right after that went to Auntie Yan's house to pick up the 'hantaran'. The 'sirih junjung' will only be ready Saturday morning. To keep it fresh.

Pheww! At night, I have packed and ironed my dress together with my small man's stuff. I also had put some henna on my fingers and toes. I wanted to do the traditional way but it did not worked. So, I have to use the modern one which is using the henna from tube, with the help of my younger sister.

Yes, I am done for the day.

Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow


Wedding Poem - Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow
by Kit McCallum


Cherished are the memories that
Brought us to this day,
For yesterday, was just a dream ...
A wish to contemplate.

A fantasy where in my mind,
A fleeting glimpse I'd see ...
A vision of the true desires
I longed for endlessly.

And when I dreamed, I did not know
The love I'd feel today;
The height of my true feelings,
And the depths they would portray.

And if I had one wish today,
A simple wish t'would be ...
Is that the love we feel this moment,
Lasts eternally.

Reality has merged now
As you stand here by my side;
And as I join your hand in mine,
My heart does fill with pride.

For as I pledge my love to you,
I see in many ways,
Reflections of my love for you
Are mirrored in your gaze.

And by our presence here today,
And for the love we share,
I thank you for our yesterdays
That brought us to be here.

But more than this, I vow to you,
My wishes yet to come ...
Tomorrow's dreams and fantasies,
This day that we are one.

Tomorrow's an adventure
That we'll share together now;
Our future's intertwined forever,
Through this holy vow.

I promise to remember
In the future years and days,
The love I feel for you this moment ...
... Dreams fulfilled today.

For in the coming years as we
Move on, and reminisce,
Back to the day I stood with you
And promised with a kiss ...

That blessed are the days that
I have looked into your eyes,
And felt the warmth and love reflect,
The essence of our lives.

Yesterday we dreamed of what might be;
Today we validate our love;
And tomorrow we will cherish the life we have shared as one.

Wedding Rehearsal.. 2 More Days To The Big 'W' Day

I had my wedding rehearsal today at Kelab Shah Alam. Reached the place around 3.30pm. MFIL and Mr. Fruitheart were already there, together with the MC (emcee) and KSA personnel.


Just an image

It went well, and yes I do feel nervous about the real ceremony.

And... it was also my first day of PMS!! Oh boy my mood swing like nobody's business. I hated it myself! So, there was no pictures taken, and my small man a bit naughty. OK enough said. Going for a massage downstairs.

Wedding Update.. 3 More Days To Go

Yippie! Had my facial done this evening. My next door neighbour, Auntie Zaza has facial equipment in her house. So I don't need to go far just climb the fence.. kidding!

Went there at 2pm. She started with massaging my face.. it was so nice.. and very relaxing. Seriously I don't remember when was the last time I had my facial done. She told me I had so many blackheads on my nose. Hehe.. I am so very lazy to clean it *blush*. When she pulled it out, it hurts a bit. She advised me I should do it once a month. Once a month??!! Errr.. I will try.

Later, had my steamed session. I fell asleep.. haha.. and fell asleep again when she put masker on my face. Very nice!! It cost me RM35. My small boy was there 15 minutes before I'm done. He said 'Mom, you're beautiful'. Awww.. I can feel my face is smooth, and no more blackheads.

I planned to pack my clothes later after my facial, but due to the cloudy whether and rain.. I choose to sleep. Hehe.. my body aching not sure why. Could it be because my full moon later?

Wedding Update.. 4 More Days To Go

Finally, I have some free time.. What a tiring day today as well. Early morning, cleaned up the house and went to Secret Recipe to order my wedding cake. Yeap, no Godiva chocolate for Mr. Fruitheart as his 'hantaran'. Maybe after our wedding, we can have our Godiva chocolate OK honey.

After that, I cleaned up my room and living hall. Packed old magazines and newspapers. Vacuum, washed the toilet and mopped the floor. Cooked lunch. Took nap for 1 hour and in the evening went to Nilai to buy some more stuff for the 'hantaran' and dropped by the wedding shop. Took my veil, shoe and I got 2 pillow for me and Mr. Fruitheart. I feel like a superwoman today!

Our frustration about our wedding dress..
Yesterday, after shopping at KLCC we went straight to Pertama Complex to get our dress. It is ready. However, Mr. Fruitheart was really upset and not satisfied at all about his 'baju mealyu'. The shirt was short, the collar was wide, and the pants.... can include my small man in there as well. It made him shorter and plump. Oh dear! It was not done PROPERLY and AWFUL. But.. we still pay for it. I will wait until I see the boss which is my make up artist and complaint to him. I might as well ask for discount and damage cost. I did asked if the design was like that, and the girl said yes. They followed the actual size. Believe me, I think they followed someone else's cutting or made a mistake when measuring it. They've asked if I want to alter. No thank you!

Seriously, we thought if we made our dress with well known designer it was done perfectly, but sadly no. Even my reception dress will only be sent to me on Sunday itself! I know I am beginning to be a BRIDEZILLA soon. Ughhh!! That will be the first and last time for us to go there. No I am not going to tell or suggest my friends (who will actually read this or asked me on my wedding) if they want to know who did my dress. Please find other designer!


This can happen to me!!
Right after that we went to another shop on the same floor, which Mr. Fruitheart made his suit. The tailor also said, it's WORSE!! We made a new 'baju melayu' for him. And, we have to pay extra. We have asked if it can be ready on Friday, lucky enough it can be done. Pheww!

Small Boy Toys

Yesterday was totally a busy day. Spent the whole day outside from early 10am till 10pm. Oh boy we're exhausted. I had to drag my small man along because my father will be going to hospital. Finally my mother was released from the hospital. Around 6pm I got the good news.
While waiting for Mr.Fruitheart to finished work at 6pm, we went to Toy's R Us KLCC. My small man's favourite shop! He was so really excited, when I told him he can choose 2 toys. Yes, as expected he went straight to the Ben 10 section.


Wow! So many too choose

This one.. or this one?
After about 15 minutes of deciding, comparing, and looking.

P/S: Boys!

Chicken Soup of The Day

As mentioned on previous entry, I have prepared chicken soup for my beloved mother. Ummpphh! The taste is good! Puji masakan sendiri pulak. No one try it yet.


Done cooking in 1 hour time. Phew! Got to run here and there today, so I cooked early. Plus, my younger sister start her school in the afternoon and I don't expect her to cook. She could burn down the kitchen.

Above statement has been in the draft for 1 day. I was really busy preparing things for my wedding stuff. So, my parents had tried it. And they said yummy.. delicious. You actually know how to cook. Of course, it's just that I am a bit lazy.

I Will Remember This

My mother had stayed in the hospital for 8 days now. She is getting better, however the doctor said they still need to monitor her blood flow. I have been told she can go home tomorrow but it depends on her blood test result. Hopefully, the test is good enough so she can go home.

I used to have this scary, sick tummy and cannot stand the medicine smell whenever I went to hospital. Surprisingly, I did not have all that now. That's amazing and good news. Maybe because I know I am strong and have to be strong for my mother. While I was there, one side I saw a mother who was taking care of her daughter. I am not sure what her sickness is. On the other side, a daughter who fell asleep while taking care of her mother who is 78 years old. All sort of sick people I can see there, with their families around. I know, no one likes to be sick. I will remember that, I can too fell sick one day.. and thinking about it.. who will take care of me? My small man? Mr. Fruitheart? Or my mother? My sister? I don't know.

'A mother can take care of her 10 children, but not all 10 of them can take care of their only mother.' Heard it many times, and yes it happens. So tomorrow morning, I am planning to cook chicken soup for my mother.

I remember reading this somewhere long time ago, 'Ingat 5 perkara sebelum 5 perkara' (remember 5 things before another 5 things).
1. Ingat sihat sebelum sakit. (healthy before you're sick)
2. Ingat muda sebelum tua. (young before you're old)
3. Ingat kaya sebelum miskin (rich before you're poor)
4. Ingat lapang sebelum sempit. (free before you don't have time left)
5. Ingat hidup sebelum mati. (life before death)

Wedding Proposal

Interesting title huh? Hehe.. I'm sure there are a lot of unique ways for a man to propose right. The normal and famous of all (in my opinion) would be, giving flowers/gifts to the woman with ring of course, get down on your knee and popped the question 'Will you marry me?'. Hmm.. sounds old fashion? But I think that's the way you can see the woman's face clearly, her first impression, her eyes glowing and the biggest smile. However, that happens if she says YES.


Can a couple who are getting married in few days, get a wedding proposal? I mean of course from the man she's going to get married. Well, she didn't exactly get 'Will you marry me?' question or situation stuff like that. Haha.. why on earth am I thinking about it now? Well I just watched 'The Proposal'. I know, Mr. Fruitheart would give me the look and smile, right honey?

Mama.. I'm Tired



Syahmie: Mama, I'm tired. Need to go to sleep.
Mama: Tired buat ape?
Syahmie: Syahmie pegi hospital tengok nenek. Syahmie tak tido pun petang tadi mama.
Mama: Kalau mama sakit, Syahmie jage mama kat hospital tak?
Syahmie: Aah, Syahmie jage mama.

Ater 5 minutes, he already asleep. With his blue teddy bear and blue smelly blankie ;P Yes, that's my boy!

Last Day of..

It's Friday again peeps!! Another 8 days to get married, wow! I am nervous and excited hehe.. My son's alergies also getting better, still has few red marks here and there. And my mother is getting better too! Thank you Allah, and thank you all for your prayers. Appreciate it much.

After this, there are few things which I did almost everyday and soon I won't be doing it.. err.. I think.

No more spending nearly RM300 per month on travel expenses for ERL and LRT. Phew! Can allocate it for other expenses. Mr. Fruitheart will send/pick me up to/from work. And no more stucked with stinky people, or have to walked half hour everyday.

My beloved car, Spectra will no longer be parked at the ERL parking lot for more than 8 hours. Will give it to my father to take care of it. He said he will paint it black. Up to you dear father, it's yours.


Image credit to Google

Mr. Fruitheart no longer need to drive back home to Gombak after dropping me. Sometimes he reached his house nearly 1AM. Poor Mr. Fruitheart. After 25th September no need to that anymore honey, you can sleep at my house.

Hmm.. wonder what else ..?? Oh not to forget, after this.. I have to do more on house chores. There's one big man, one small man and myself things I need to do. Oh boy! Apart from cooking, washing, ironing, cleaning, folding clothes, taking care of those two man.. hmm.. what else? And soon, if God's will another one small soon.. if it's a boy.. then I have 3 heroes! Haha.. my life is so happening.

So today Friday 17th September, is my last day of work before my 2 weeks holiday. Yippie yay! Currently, there's not much request and I don't feel like doing it. Even though I've done almost 70.. haha. Oh well, as my Fruitheart said. I still have time to update my blog even I have loads of work. Multitasking honey.

I might update from time to time. See you all soon.. it could be tomorrow I update the blog.. or later.

I'm Getting Married.. In 10 Days!

Wow! I am really getting married in 10 days!!!!! Just had to share. But at this very moment, I could not feel the excitement. Where could it be??

All I want now is my mother to recover soon, so she can look how happy her daughter is on the day she get married.


I have decided I will no longer worry about guest count, yes some has confirmed their RSVP and some not. Oh well.. And the next thing I am worried is the DRESS! I suppose a little nerves are to be expected at this point, and oh yea.. panic as well. I know we'll be just fine, everything will. I know I'll be getting butterflies in my stomach soon. It’s a happy nervous feeling. Anyone know what I’m talking about?

I am just hoping that everything turns out the way I have dreamed that it would.

My Mother

Another day at the hospital. Now my mother has been admitted to Columbia Hospital, Seremban. My father decided to take her to another private hospital for further checkup.

It's half hour drive from my house to the hospital. Dr. William is the doc in charge. He's nice although at certain point I lose my patience because they're hmm.. a bit slow. Oh boy, I really need to learn how to control my temper huh?

Currently my sister is taking care of my mother. Doc said her blood not flowing normally and her heart beat is sometimes slow sometimes fast. Her blood circulation is not normal and could not pump to her head. Doc had given her powerful medicine and she now can walk, but slowly. Thanks to the doc in fisio lab. Hopefully she recovers soon.

Second and Third Day Raya Update

Wow! Looking at the entry title, I can see how extremely busy I am on these two days. Not just busy, super tired too. Went to relatives houses and cooking and cleaning, washing.

So many plans had to be cancelled. On second day of raya, we planned to go to MFIL house. Early morning, Mr. Fruitheart said his uncle passed away. So, we just went to my auntie house at Cheras. On that day itself, my mother had headache like migrain and she cannot move her left leg. She got another injection to ease the pain when we brought her to the nearest clinic in Pandan Indah. What a day!

Yesterday, the plan was for Mr. Fruitheart visiting my house. Since my mother was admitted to the hospital, it had to be cancelled again. What frustrates me was the way the doc doing their job. My mother was there from 11am and only around 5pm he examined her. WTH??!! Oh yes, my father was so very the furious. I think that's how doctors in government hospitals do their work is it? Slow? Or too much patients to handle? or.. ahhh whatever. Enough said.

P/S: Kita hanya merancang, Allah yang menentukan segalanya.. redha dengan ketentuannya.

Nasi Marshmelllow

On first day of raya.. I think it's a mixed of too much of nickelodeon, playhouse disney, cartoon network and he likes the nasi impit.

Syahmie: Mama, ade nasi marshmellow tak?
Mama: Haa? Nasi marshmellow? What is that?
Syahmie: Nasi yang color putih macam nenek potong yang bentuk square tu.
Mama: Nasi impit, bukan nasi marshmellow.

According to him, nasi marshmellow = nasi impit
P/S: Nasi impit memang sedap!

First Day Of Eidulfitri 1431H

Syukur alhamdulillah, today is the first day of Eidulfitri which is celebrated throughout the Muslim World. Syawal, is the tenth month of the Lunar Islamic calendar. It is a month of celebration after one month of fasting during Ramadhan.

So, my update for the first day.
The night before Hari Raya, my siblings and I were busy preparing 'kuah satay' and 'sayur lodeh'. My mother already cooked 'rendang daging' and 'ketupat'. All those dishes were common and must have food on Hari Raya. Other than that are 'lontong', 'ketupat palas' (Mr Fruitheart please do take note, not 'ketupat balas'), and of course 'kuih raya'.


First time I made it by myself, yay me!
Around 10am, we headed to my auntie's house in Dengkil. However, we did not reached our destination because suddenly my mother had stomach ache. We had to cancel our raya tour, and headed to nearby clinic. She was sweating and holding her stomach. Doc said she might have got gastric and she gave her one injection to ease the pain. And oh boy she had been given 5 types of pills. After that we went straight back home.

Not long after that, my aunties, uncles and grandma from my mother's side came. Lucky we were at home at that time.


I was so exhausted.tired.com hehe.. fell asleep while watching TV until 6PM. So now here I am, in front of the PC updating my blog. Normally, no one will come to visit us at night. So I can 'lepak' in front of the tv till midnight. And Mr. Fruitheart, he told me he's still at his relatives house. Fuhhh.. too much of everything he said. Give him a chance right? Hehe.. starting Monday next week, triple workout honey.

Oh ya, I did noticed this year so many people wearing purple. Talking about 'baju raya', only my son's 'baju melayu' is ready. The tailor couldn't make my parents and my siblings clothes on time. Oh well, all of us still have other 'baju raya' so we just wear it.

Raya this year is not that happening. First my second sister Diba went to her hubby's village to celebrate raya. It's their first time celebration as husband and wife. Secondly, my father worked on the night before 'raya' and only home in the afternoon. Such a workaholic. He already went to work just now, and will be back in the morning.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir dan Batin to all.

Bad Service - First And Last

I was so frustrated today! Oleh kerana tempat tinggal kite orang ada gangguan bekalan air, maka my mother tidak memasak hari ini. So, we decided to 'buka puasa' at one of the tomyam shop near Inti College, Nilai.

We reached there around 6.45PM and only 3 couples were there before us. After we found our table, then came the waiter. He took our order, and later I can see that lots of people coming in. My small man is really extremely hungry. And dia membebel marah-marah cakap lambat. *sigh* Bukannya puasa pun. I ignored him, saying that the food will arrive soon. Bersabar!


Jam dah pukul 7.15PM, still no drinks or food. Haaaa?? I know, I will be getting angry real soon. My brother muka dah monyok. My small man, lagi lah.. haih.. At last, the waiter came with ice cold water for us to break fasting. That's all. Seriously, takkan lah diorang tak boleh prepare air dulu? Bukan minta air susah nak di buat pun, sirap, milo and air suam. Duh!!!!!! Langsung tak ada kurma, service memang OUT!



Hidangan sampai pukul 7.45PM. Terus makan. Lapar sungguh. Rasa macam nak makan orang yang serve tu pun ada gak. Nasib baik, my father tak ada sekali.. if not dah tentu kena marah. Memang tak ada sistem langsung, sampai salah bagi order. Orang order makanan lain, makanan lain yang sampai. Ada juga 4, 5 orang yang datang then balik. Tak mampu menunggu lama.

That's it, itu lah first and last I makan di situ. No more after this. Overall, food is ok. Nasib baik tak charge mahal. Dugaan.

Who's Turn Is It Anyway

Hari Raya mood has conquered me.. HELP!!?? I am still working, this coming Friday only I will be on leave.. Rasa lambat betul nak pukul 4.30 petang ni. Boleh pulak, suddenly terbau rendang!! Siapa lah yang pegi panaskan lauk dia kat pantry office ni.. *grrrrrrrr.. menggoda iman betul!

Early morning pun ERL tak ramai orang, same goes with LRT. Ramai yang dah mula bercuti since last Friday. Seronok kan orang nak balik kampung jauh-jauh ni. Talking about balik kampung, pagi tadi dalam ERL ada lah se'group' akak-akak ni dok bercerita. Sakan ok! Satu ERL boleh dengar gelak tawa, imagine pepagi dah riuh rendah. Masing-masing bercerita turn nak balik ke kampung siapa, suami or isteri. Hehe.. kelakar pulak bila di ingatkan balik conversation akak-akak tu.

Mana tak nya, even yang duduk senegeri pun tetap bergaduh jugak nak balik rumah parents siapa dulu. Takkan tiap-tiap tahun nak balik rumah parents suami kan, tahu lah ada kuasa veto. Pulak tu, si isteri boleh ugut.. tak nak masak.. aduh! Akak-akak oitt, I jenuh menahan ketawa ok! Tak nak cakap banyak-banyak melebih di blog, mane tahu my turn pula nanti berebut juga kan. Hehe.. Al kisah.

Ok, entry masih lagi dengan bahasa rojak.. BI and BM. Jangan ada yang ambil tindakan tatabahasa to me sudah hik hik.. Masih lagi di bulan Ramadhan, hari ke 26.. 4 hari lagi nak raya. Yay! Yay! Tu dia mama seronok mengalahkan Adzreza Syahmie. Oh and 20 more days to my big day.

InsyaAllah, raya tahun ini jatuh pada hari Jumaat 10hb September. Ok, we story sikit pasal nak raya ni.

Baju raya.. this year I didn't have any new one. Only for me small man. Purple lagi you, handsome anak mama nanti. I akan dapat baju raya merangkap baju nikah nanti kan, jadi allocation sudah pergi ke situ. The price, don't ask. Still not done yet.

Kuih raya.. My favourite is tart nenas. This year, sadly no tart nenas for me huk huk. Oleh kerana budget sudah pergi ke big day itu, maka ayahanda yang membeli kuih raya. My mother memang tak larat dah membuat kuih, dulu masa muda-muda cewahhh.. rajin jugak lah kan. Sekarang ni main tunjuk dan bayar saja. Selain kuih raya mesti ada juga kerepek. Kerepek pisang, kerepek pedas, kerepek bawang.. and the list goes on.



Kad raya.. rasanya tahun ini tokey kedai kad raya tak dapat banyak duit. Mana tak nya, semua gune facebook and twitter je. Tak caya? To those who have facebook should know. Habis di tag sana sini. Lepas tu siap boleh tambah gambar sendiri. Haa, kad raya kertas tu ada ke orang nak buat macam tu? Tak ada kan?? Tu namanya, kebijaksanaan menggunakan teknologi terkini. Kad raya online namanya.



Sampul duit raya.. ini sudah menjadi salah satu yang wajib. Yang paling seronok ialah kanak-kanak berumur 12 tahun ke bawah. 13 tahun ke atas pun ada gak dapat duit raya kan, tapi kalau dapat tu ala-ala malu tapi mahu gitu. I do remember when I was 20 I do get it ok. Haha.. was mistaken because they said I looked like 15.. awww.. yeah young! Now, my turn to give duit raya. Tapi tahun ini, sorry yea kanak-kanak, tiada duit raya from Auntie Fara. Boleh mintak kat Atok Awie dengan Nenek Nah. Oh yea, Auntie Diba, Auntie Idah and Uncle Pesot also can provide duit raya hehe..



Ziarah dari rumah ke rumah.. Ini pun menjadi tradisi dari dulu. Bila cuti hari raya je yang selalunye boleh melawat saudara mara di kampung dan juga di bandar kan. Sambil melawat sambil makan. Sebab tu ada yang boleh naik berat badan sampai 5KG. Ehem.. attention to Mr. Fruitheart, beringat bila makan tu yea. Jangan semua masuk dalam mulut tak de tapis-tapis. Boleh nampak tummy and seluar kahwin nanti kene alter pulak.

Oh lupa nak include, sembahyang di pagi raya.. lepas itu melawat kubur insan tersayang yang telah kembali ke rahmatullah. Masuk tahun ini, dah 6 tahun arwah adik pergi. Semoga rohnya di cucuri rahmat.. amin. Lepas tu, agenda (eh macam tak sesuai je perkataan tu) saling bermaafan sesama ahli keluarga. Haa.. this part, kene standby tisu. Confirm nangis! Sebak syahdu tau.

Lagu raya.. memang lagu popular sejak dari dulu sampai sekarang. Lagu sekarang memang tak boleh lawan lah lagu macam senarai di bawah hehe..
Suasana Hari Raya (Sharifah Aini)
Selamat Hari Raya (Ahmad Jais)
Selamat Hari Raya (Fazidah Joned)
Menjelang Hari Raya (D.J. Dave)
Balik Kampung (Sudirman)
Pulanglah (Aishah)
Selamat Hari Raya (Saloma)
Seloka Hari Raya (Uji Rashid & Hail Amir)
Bila Takbir Bergema (Rafeah Buang)

Selamat Berhari Raya (Rahimah Rahim)
Satu Hari Di Hari Raya (M.Nasir)
Dendang Perantau (P.Ramlee)
Dari Jauh Ku Mohon Maaf (Sudirman)
Cahaya AidilFitri (Black Dog Bone)

Overall, Hari Raya Puasa is a joyous occasion for Muslims. Seronoknye nak raya!

Dam Dam Dum.. Bunyi Mercun

Sudah 25 hari umat Islam berada di bulan Ramadhan. Syukur alhamdulillah, masih lagi dapat menunaikan ibadat puasa di bulan mulia ini. InsyaAllah, bertemu lagi di Ramadhan akan datang.

Awal petang tadi sibuk 'make over' my blog. Nak tukar backgound, rasa macam agak boring dengan layout yang ada. Sibuk cari yang berkenan di hati, sudahnya berterabur semua widgets.. hehe. After few hours, got the one I want but still not satisfied. Lepas bangun dari nap, login back to blog. Hmm.. nahh.. still don't like it. So, tukar balik ke layout background asal. What to do, I heart this layout more than others. (at the moment)

Sambil ber'blogging' dengar juga riuh anak-anak makcik sebelah main mercun dan bunga api. Berdentam dentum. Wah, sakan korang ye berlawan-lawan dengan orang taman sebelah nampak. Jangan sampai ada yang putus jari sudah. Nasib baik me small man bukan jenis yang suka main bunga api or mercun tu. He's afraid!! Tak macho langsung anak mama. Dah tidur pun dia. Kepenatan main lego (buat kereta).

Intai dibalik tingkap, seronok tengok budak-budak kecik tu main bunga api. Haih.. teringin ke?? Ada lah sikit-sikit kan. Mengimbau kembali memori masa umur 12 tahun main bunga api dengan anak jiran sebelah, sampai terbakar kain mak dia. Melompat masuk dalam kain. Kelakar sungguh! Sekarang, silap hari bulan masuk dalam my kain pulak nanti.. oopss!


Jangan jadi begini yea

For The Rest Of My Life



Suddenly.. I'm feeling all lovey dovey. I've been watching videos on you tube and found something that captures my heart. Nice song with sweet words. Ahh.. I fell in love. A very beautiful nice song by Maher Zain.


I praise Allah for sending me you my love
You found me home and sail with me
And I'm here with you
Now let me let you know
You've opened my heart
I was always thinking that love was wrong
But everything was changed when you came along ooooo
And there's a couple words I want to say

For the rest of my life
I'll be with you
I'll stay by your side
Honest and true
Till the end of my time
I'll be loving you… loving you

For the rest of my life
Thru days and nights
I'll thank Allah
For open my eyes
Now and forever I.. I'll be there for you

I know that deep in my heart
I feel so blessed when I think of you
And I ask Allah to bless all we do
You're my wife and my friend and my strength
And I pray we're together in Jannah
Now I find myself I feel so strong
Yes! Every thing was changed when you came along ooooo
And there's a couple of words I want to say

I know that deep in my heart

Now that you're here in front of me
I strongly feel love
I strongly feel love
And I have no doubt
And I'm singing loud that I'll love you eternally

Hari Raya Mood On Friday



Entry kali ini nak campur aduk BI ngan BM. Haa jadi rojak. Seriously, I need to sharpen my English back, and I know if my late teacher read this, she will say 'Your grammar is as bad as your hair'.. Oh well teacher.. Have left school so many years ago. So Mr Honey dear, buy me more books pleaseeeeeeeeeeee.

Leher sakit, mesti salah tido malam semalam. Kerja? Oh yes, It's FRIDAY! Oleh kerana lagi 6 hari nak raya, badan dan jemari saja rajin. Kepala hati semua dah pergi vacation. Boleh gitu kan? Pulak tu dengar lagu raya Dendang Perantau, Satu Hari Di Hari Raya.. What? Puasa tak cukup tak boleh raya? Says who?? Don't care, nak raya jugak.

Tapi ada sikit sedih jugak la, sebab tak de kampung... sob sob. Orang lain seronok nak balik kampung kan. I think it has been 15 years, tak merasa jalan jauh balik kampung. Dulu menetap di Penang and Kedah boleh lah kan. Naik keretapi, bas.. wah seronok-seronok. Hehe.. Sekarang ni, hmm.. kampungku rumahku jua. Tahun depan, boleh lah balik kampung di Gombak. Kalau dari Salak Tinggi, mau sejam jugak lah nak sampai Gombak termasuk tol ngan jem. Hehe.. kene cabut undi tak Mr. Fruitheart?

~♪♫~ Satu Hari Di Hari Raya
Aku menangis tanda gembira
Aku menangis tanda kucinta kepadanya ~♪♫~

Zakat Fitrah

Zakat fitrah adalah zakat yang dikeluarkan khusus pada bulan Ramadhan atau paling lambat sebelum selesainya salat Idul Fitri. Setiap individu muslim yang berkemampuan wajib membayar zakat jenis ini.
(credit to http://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zakat_Fitrah)

Petang selama, lepas balik dari kerja.. singgah di bazaar Ramadhan Salak Tinggi. Memang tiap-tiap tahun orang yang sama akan duduk di booth zakat tu and tempat yang sama juga. Nasib baik tak ramai orang, so tak perlu beratur panjang macam orang beli murtabak.

Tahun ni, kena bayar zakat RM14. Satu untuk myself, and satu untuk my small man. Tak sampai 5 minit pun, dah selesai. Syukur alhamdulillah, tanggungjawab bayar zakat selesai.

She Feels, She Says

There are times it's not always lovey dovey and mushy. Not everything is perfect and romantic all the time. Have had tough times and differences too, but not knowing when actually it could hurt the most.

Wonder where it goes when we used to talked about everything. Why do I feel that we are not now? Maybe I think and wonder too much.


She's not good with words,
She feels all she did was a OK,
She think it is a teasing joke she could play,
She don't know why she typed all this when..
She actually has to say it in front,
She could not hold the tears,
She would remain silent,
Knowing it might get worse.

What hurt the most?
Knowing the one you love hurt because of you.

She just remembered,
In love there are times when we are too happy,
There are days we will feel low.

September

Time sure flies by so fast. It's already September, and yes I am still counting days. Another 24 days until the big day and 8 more days to celebrate 'Hari Raya'.

Nothing more to update about the 'counting days' thing. No juicy gossips too. Wednesday, it's the day either you want to be productive or most likely think about the weekend all times.
