Suatu Minggu Berkurung Hijau Serindit

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. This is a classic example of a situation where you're stuck at coming up with a title to your blog post, rings any bell? Well, I meant to write about a few weeks back when I went to visit a best friend who had delivered her 5th daughter in Subang Jaya. 

I made a point of paying a visit in between my hectic day and ended up donning the same baju kurung till 9.30pm from as early as 9.30am. Pheww... what a record!

I couldn't help feeling the same ache each time seeing newborns, but yeah.. Don't be sad, Nai.. Focus on the blessings!

I pray hard that my friend would get the boy she's been craving for since the last 12 years or so. With 1 boy and 5 daughters, she's still trying to get another boy. Please grant her wish, dear Allah..! 
And mine.

Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue.

Assalamu'alaikum. I've been donning cotton baju kurungs for the past weekdays, kinda 'Theme of The Week' gitiewww. Must be the weather, I suppose, that I felt very comfortable wearing English cottons day in day out. Otherwise I wouldn't have determinedly dressed against the heat temperature in KL where it's either forever sunny or raining or somewhere in between. December until February would be the most cotton-friendly months, in a way. 

Of all my cotton collections, not that I have many, but enough to make necessary comparison, I have always loved this red roses print very, very much. It has never failed by far to make me feel pleased at myself and somewhat feminine to bits. Hurmm, self satisfaction, which is very lame to most people. LOL.

See the file beside me? It was pink as well, but of course. We have pink and yellow tones at the office, with syari'e matters in pink and other matters in yellow. I went to the KL Syariah Court that day merely for an offi…

Ikea's Algot System

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. This time of the year I decided to carry on with the legacy of finding storage solutions and since loads of things have been duly resolved for the past year, there are more rooms to focus on inner wardrobes. Entered Ikea Secondary clothes storage. Let's see what I bought, shall we?

This Algot secondary drawer system was just what I needed and more, which left me smiling ever so broadly. Perfect in so many ways, including the below RM100 price. 

Except for one thing: The frame was a little 2 inches extra from the existing wardrobe's width, which meant that I couldn't place it vertically as it was supposed to be. So, I had no choice but to place it horizontally instead. This also meant that I ended up stacking the extra frame I had bought for my husband's wardrobe to cater for my clothes (now that I couldn't hang most of them due to lack of hanging space). 

So how on earth to access those clothes in such placement you might ask. Well, it's a si…

Kerana Dirimu Begitu Berharga: Suatu Monolog Petang Jumaat

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. Hari yang indah jangan disia-siakan dengan bergundah gulana, buang masa je. Dendam terindah adalah mencipta ruang kebahagiaan kepada diri sendiri dan orang-orang yang tersayang. Yang tahu menilai dan mahu menghargainya. Itu hutang kita yang perlu sentiasa dibayar selagi jasad masih bernyawa. Hutang darah dan air mata.

Belajarlah menyayangi diri sendiri dan menerima apa adanya. Usah dikejar hijaunya rumput di laman orang lantaran dangkalnya akal dan kecamuknya emosi. Lebih baik menyiram kembang mewangi di laman sendiri. 

Terasa sungguh bosan dan muak dengan keadaan, itu lumrah sebuah kehidupan. Ambil masa bertenang dan mengenali diri, lambat pun tak mengapa. Janji ada tindakan proaktif dan bukan cuma berpeluk tubuh menunggu bulan jatuh ke riba. 

Jom kita menggapai pelangi dengan mencorakkan ukiran sendiri.

Pandas, Lawyers & Monochrome World

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. This is funny but I think we're sharing the same world with pandas, LOL. Anyways, what a great thing to do with your lovely colleagues after a lousy encounter with some people. I definitely wouldn't trade it with anything at all, really and I would always try not to take it for granted either. In this world of war and hypocrites swarming over the place, true friends are meant to be cherished even more ~ it's not even an option to begin with. Here are some pictures taken at Publika Mall worth sharing with you guys:




They had these cute little pandas, 1600 to be exact at the lobby and people were lining up to pay and get inside the compound to take pictures with the pandas eventhough they were not even real ones! LOL. We thought they were so cute yes, but didn't wanna pay a dime so we just sat and minded our own business, taking turn to snap our own pictures. Worked just fine. 

Much better than taking selfies, right? Yeah, that was the previous day aft…

Kau Bawak Batu Ke Dalam Beg, Perempuan?

Image
Assalamu'alaikum. Itu terjemahan kasar daripada tajuk "What's In My Bag" ya, kawan-kawan sekalian. Meh sini tengok perempuan tuan punya blog Tak Pe Je gendong apa kat bahu dia, meh. Dah kenapa dahi kau berkerut bebenor cik kak, panas ya? Siapa suruh selfie tengah-tengah panas, sila redah penuh pasrah la makanya. 

Pantang jumpa Daiso, mesti nak masuk walaupun tawaf satu round. Sebab? Saje carik menda-menda comel yang boleh buat tambah koleksi 'My Small Organizers'. Tempat sejuk haruslah muka takde kerut kekdahnya. Selfie lagi.

Ok. Nampak tu senyuman yang terukir sambil tangan menampung handbag? Habit, kawan-kawan, setelah berkurun lama kurahsiakan cintaku padanya. Heheh. Habit yang sekian lama duk tampung bawak handbag berat sampai bila bawak handbag tak berat pon tetap kekdahnya nak menampung jugak seolah-olah.

Jadi amenda dalam beg kau tu, perempuan? Soklan cepu gangsa yang selalu ditanya-tanya lagi. Takde la banyak sangat sebenarnya. Cukup la untuk kehidupan s…

Forever Seventeen

Assalamu'alaikum. May 2015 bring us joy and happiness, that's what we hope and pray for. It's January and things are looking up, despite the post-flood dilemma in the East-Coast. Life goes on, after all...
Last Tuesday I had a major blast meeting 4 of my high school friends at Ikea's Food Court, reason being we would wander about doing some shopping afterwards. Time flew like bullet train that day it seemed, to our dismay. What a wonderful destress session it was! 

When we were together, nothing else would matter. Only us.

Laughed like nobody's business, but of course!

We have been that way since teenagers, much to others' wonders. We were match made in Heaven, so Heaven Knows! 

It's been a while since all of us met, I mean ALL of us. Every single one of us. But due to time and place contraints, it wouldn't be easy to make it happen. 

One of us couldn't make it that day, despite the fact that she had confirmed her attendance in our closed whatsapp group t…
