Speckyme, Mummy..!

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. Junior is now a specky himself. Oh My...! And he really likes it, well at least for now. He chose his own frame, which appeared to be very 'grown-up' in the first place, as opposed to my optometrist's and my suggestions. I let him choose what he wanted, as usual but personally I couldn't say I didn't like what he chose. Looks nice on him!

Judging from his power prescription, his eyesight has suffered for quite some time but he had been hiding it from us. He started to tell me that he couldn't see what the teachers wrote on the white-board last week only when he had swapped place in the classroom with another boy with poor vision. I guess if he still occupies his usual table at the front row, even he wouldn't  know about his poor vision, let alone his mummy! 

I started to wear glasses at thirteen and my boy at TEN! As I was feeling low and troubled, there was another kid at the optician with his mom and he turned out to be NINE. Looking a…

Juma'ah Barakah ~ The Circle in Blacks

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. It's otherwise a good Friday, apart from mourning the tragedy Malaysians have to endure for MH17 and MH370. We in this monochrome circle have been so used to donning black outfits, so nothing weird about the color at all, at all. But some of us really don't have better things to do other than complaining and making stupid remarks over the government's decision to promote wearing black outfits to show our mourning today. How shallow. How lame. How insensitive. Of all the things that happened they chose to show their stupidity instead. Kesian..
I mean, why don't they go barking at those in Saudi Arabia who wear only blacks? Or to Lim Kok Wing University, which is much much nearer ~ the corporate color is black and the staffs will have to wear only blacks every freaking day? And since when Islam disallows Muslims to wear blacks as a sign of mourning? Or obligates them to ONLY wear WHITES, for that matter? Adoi...!


They of course might never heard of a …

A Piece of Me Taken Away. Sway..

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. A lot of things have happened that I think I've lost most of myself. May be it's just a phase of transition or may be even emotional turmoil, who knows? But I really have got to get myself together again and move forward. The sooner the better. What's wrong, you might wonder. Well, nothing much.. I just had a miscarriage again after one year and a half, that's why. I can't even begin to tell how strange this thing has made me feel, but let's just say I feel N.U.M.B if that's even the word best to describe it. But you know what? I've done every single thing imaginable to take care of myself and the baby in my womb. Bed rest? Yep, even that. But God obviously had another plan for me, the one that I'm yet to figure out. In the meantime, keep breathing is what I intend to do. 
One thing to make things much easier is to keep myself occupied with loads of works, so yesterday I began doing just that. After resting for 2 straight week…

Embrace Monday We Shall

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. Weekend's over, too bad. Time to work our heads off tomorrow just yet again. Be glad we have works to do, on a positive note. How about one sweet smile now, lovelies? Hurmm.. That's more like it!

Together we shall welcome Monday, insya Allah. Take care!

Hidung McD dan Ayah lagu Mawi

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. Hari tu balik Temerloh aku tengah emosional dalam kereta. Jap-jap tu la ada lagu Ayah dalam radio, oh sungguh baik dia punya timing! Apa lagi kan, pecah la segala empangan. Aku ni kalau dah start nangis susah nak berenti, brek semua tak makan. Main lalu je. Laju pulak tu. Hidung dah merah macam McD yang korang pakat boikot tu. Dah la pakai tudung kuning, kan? Untung la korang yang masih ada ayah.. Buat la sehabis baik, korang. Jangan tunggu mampu baru nak kasi hadiah mahal-mahal. Dah mampu esok, belum tentu ayah masih ada. Takpun, buatnya kita yang pegi dulu, lagi putih mata..! 

Kalau pun kita tak kena angin dengan depa, abaikan aje.. Baik buruk pun, itulah je ayah kita. Takde galang gantinya dah. Ayah orang lain baik macamana pun, tetap tak sama dengan ayah sendiri. Kita ni jahat macamana pun depa tetap sayangkan kita walaupun mulut depa penuh dengan kata-kata amarah. Topeng je tu semua. Dalam hati, depa sayang sangat kat kita. Tu la pon sebab depa marah.. Kalau …

Eid To Eid One Year Round

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. Last Eid ul Fitri I didn't get to wear exactly two of my new clothes for I chose to leave them behind to be worn in KL. Well, at least that was the actual plan but it just didn't happen. Then throughout the year I bought a few new sarees and sent them to the tailor as usual, only to end up wearing one of them for my cousin's wedding. Entered the lycra maxi dresses. Practical-wise, I began to quickly prefer them over trickier modern kurungs, understandably. So I decided to 'marinate' the eid outfits together with the new sarees until this very Syawal, which was by all means unprecedented, to say the least. 
However, I did send another two different sarees exclusively for this raya and made them into a modern kurung and a kebaya. The modern kurung I did wear as planned on the 1st day of Syawal 1435H Monday 28th July 2014. Heheh. The kebaya I still contemplate either to wear or marinate one year round. Anyways, let's just cross the bridge when…
