bye bye 2011

another 2 days before the year 2011 bading us good bye and welcoming the new year 2012 .. really pray that this new year will be a better year for all of us ..

december 2010 - hubby and hani were very busy preparing for our only daughter, aamal's wedding whereas our youngest son, aqeel is struggling for his spm exam and aliff, our eldest son secured a stable job and had introdeuced us to his girlfriend .. alhamdulillah those episodes had turned out to be the beginning of a good and prosperous year to all of us ..

after their honeymoon in hongkong, aamal had decided to quit her hectic job and stayed home for a while. aqeel went to driving classes before the spm results are announced and aliff & nadia had tied their engagement in march and the wedding is scheduled to be in october 2011, currently nadia is a medical officer in seremban and both of yhem commute from nadia's residence in puchong ..

all this while, aqeel wants to be a pilot and he'd accumulated articles about pilot academies and their very expensive fees ... once the spm result is announced and after much persuasion, aqeel had opted to do foundation in business management at msu in shah alam and stayed in the hostel. tho being the youngest in the family, aqeel had shown a very high leadership quality and chosen to be the student leader for foundation students. alhamdulillah, aqeel had scored in his first term exam ..

najmi was back to the shore and aamal had done some part time job as photographer here and there. most of the time, aamal is managing anas easkey, the popular photographer in malaysia. in july 2011, najmi had decided to take a break from his job and enroliing for a full time one year master programme in akademi laut malaysia (ALAM), melaka, he is only back during weekends. now, aamal had secured a full time job in one of the production house in setapak and most of the working days, she'll be in sri gombak, her mom-in-law's house ..

aliff and nadia had really worked hard for their wedding which is just seven months after the engagement. her mom being away in saudi arabia and elder sister in the southern region, nadia had excelled in her sole preparation whilst completing her housemanship in hkl. exact dates and venues are then confirmed and all of us are looking forward for the event. we had decided to hold just a small reception for the groom side and had scouted for halls, alas we had confirmed to hold the majlis menyambut menantu in mokhdar resort which was previously known as duta plams resort .. alhamdulillah, majlis pernikahan selamat dilangsungkan di masjid terapung puchong perdana pada pagi sabtu 15hb oktober dengan mas kawen rm300 dan wang hantaran sebanyak rm20111. majlis resepsi sebelah pengantin perempuan telah diadakan dengan meriahnya pada sebelah malam di taman tasik putrajaya. pada malam sabtu minggu berikutnya, 22hb oktober sekali lagi keluarga nadia telah membuat majlis kenduri di kampungnya, masjid tanah melaka di mana kedua2 pengantin telah diarak menggunakan tandu diiringi dengan percikan bunga api. pihak kami telah mengundang kurang dari 500 orang jemputan ke majlis menyambut menantu pada hari sabtu berikutnya, 29hb oktober ke mokhdar resort country homes rawang. seminggu kemudian, kami telah menjamu laksa dan nasi daging korban di rumah ayah di pasir mas kelantan sempena majlis memperkenalkan menantu menantu kami kat kampung ... all the photos ada kat hani's facebook albums ..

since being a pensioner, hani had not been visiting klinik dr jamil in tasik puteri and guess it's a good sign .. medical checkup is normally done and alhamdulillah, both hubby and hani had not been suffering from any major hypertension, diabetise and heart problem. hani's migraine had subsided but am on the lower level of blood pressure. hubby is a smoker since 13 and he had avoided many appointments ..

dearest ayoh

haji abdullah daud @ cekgu lloh, 80 is hani's mentor and he is my beloved father who had devoted all his time, money and energy to his seven children. jumaat 25 nov lalu setelah mengambil air sembanhyang untuk ke masjid bagi menunaikan sembahyang jumaat, ayoh telah jatuh terduduk yang menyebabkan tulang belakangnya patah dan retak ... rumah ayoh dikampung telah diupgrade where the bathrooms are fully tiled and so are the floorings .. semasa kejadian, ayoh had closed the room door and noone realised that ayoh was in there till ayu, youngest sister noticed that his car was still under the porch at 1.30pm ..

ayu had shouted to cek who was bathing her father (hani's grand father is 107 years and staying with mum) upon opening the door and ayoh was there flat on his hips and groaning in pain. ayoh could not move his body but trying to mumble something ... ayu had texted all of us in kl asking what to do next ..

cek had called din, ana's hubby, another sister who's staying not far from cek's house to help ayoh since lan, aya's hubby was at work. lepas solat jumaat, din came and so was the tukang urut ... upon receiving the message from ayu, dearest darling had asked hani to go home with the earliest flight on saturday and hani was at ayoh's bed for 2 weeks ..

being the eldest, hani had persuaded ayoh to go for full medical checkup and the x-ray had showed that the 4th spinal bone patah and ada serpihan. cekgu lloh refused to be warded and we had brought him home .. he's into the normal and traditional medicine until his another appointment on the 3rd jan 2012

alhamdulillah, cekgu lloh had been better tho his movements are still limited and with the aid of a squared cane @ tongkat kaki empat, he's now able to go to the toilet and tv hall ... alhamdulillah ALLAH

bestie ..

dearest hubby had presented hani with an ipad2 middle of the year ie before ramadhan this year .. initially hani was not that happy cos am expecting for a jewelley set, konon nak buat basahan kat rumah ... a gift is still a gift, so terpaksa accept

the whole of ramadhan, the ipad banyak digunakan untuk bacaan alquran but most of the games being downloaded are more for papa and aqeel .. normally hani will only be using the ipad for facebooking .. by the way, aliff & nadia as well as aamal & najmi has their own ipad2 ...

as time passed, guess the ipad has been hani's bestie cos it's very handy and user friendly. putera puteriku had downloaded hani's kind of games such as scrable and tetris. had been spending hours and hours of hani's freetime with it and ... tq so much dearest darling for the gift

alhamdulillah dan syukur kepada mu YA ALLAH .. tepat pukul 10 pagi sabtu 15hb oktober 2011 di masjid puchong perdana, putera sulungku aliff firdaus, 26 telah selamat dinikahkan dengan buah hatinya khairunnadiah kamaruzzaman, 26 dengan sekali lafaz dan mas kahwin sebanyak rm300 ..

pihak kami telah membawa 7 dulang hantaran yang terdiri dari sirih junjung, cincin dan wang hantaran, IPad & persalinan kain, kek berbentuk sangkar burung, beg & kasut serta perfume & toileteries. pihak perempuan telah membalas dengan 9 dulang termasuk tepak sirih, quran, kek yang berbentuk topi, baju kemeja, PS3, jam & cincin, toileteries, shades. we'd chosen shades of gold and off white as our theme and the bride had chosen purple/lilac as theirs ..

majlis telah berjalan dengan lancar dan sempurna, pihak perempuan telah menghidangkan nasi lemak dan mee hoon goreng di samping kuih muih di perkarangan masjid. we'd left the mosque around 12 noon heading to the transit house, a semi-d in precint 11, putrajaya for the nite's wedding reception ..

around 3pm saturday, heavy rain and wind started blowing and hani really pray that the night's function is not jeopardized ...

mode : panic

really pray that the akad nikah, reception for both sides will be smooth sailing and as planned. today is exactly 10 days before hani's eldest son, aliff will be tying his knot to nadia and now, hani is in panic mode .. hani's feeling is totally different from aamal, our only daughter's wedding a year ago

guess hani's feeling will be normalised after the akad nikah this saturday. being a mom to a guy, hani really pray aliff will perform his best to his wife, show full responsibility, gives her maximum care, tender her with the deepest love and financially secure her. most women do not always ask for expensive gifts and presents, we only wish for happiness and happily ever after ..

aliff and nadia will be solemnized in masjid puchong before the reception at putrajaya lakeside. the following saturday we'll be in melaka for another reception to nadia's kampung folks. then, we'll be having majlis menyambut menantu in country homes rawang before another small reception in pasir mas .. logistic had to be arranged and it's rather taxing

to all married couples, new and old just remember "sabar sabar and sabar" ..

p/s : pn haslina, in case u r reading this post, ani had been waiting for your house address cos ani had lost the contact number "pls call me" ..

syawal's last weekend

it was a very busy weekend for our family since on friday, we'd received few phone calls from old friends saying that they'll be dropping over on saturday. with everybody around, we'd decided to cook nasi kebuli, ayam goreng berempah, dalca daging tetel and sambal tomato as well as nasi impit and kuah kacang. aqeel had helped hani in baking 2 butter cakes and aamal had cooked jelly. with najmi as his assistant, papa had cooked 5 kilos of nasi kebuli and hani had prepared the dalca ..

aliff and aqeel had swept and cleaned the exterior pathway since we'll be serving the food outside whereas the rest of us are busy cooking inside. we'd served hot fried chicken, and aamal & najmi had volunteered to fry the chicken as and when needed, it's really a tedious job indeed .. by 12 noon all food is ready to be served

mak icah and elise were the first to arrive followed by kak melini and the family. the late yusliza's family, dropped by on the way to another friend's house and by noon, the pondok was full of laughter and giggling ..

by 8.30 sunday morning, with aqeel we'd left to jasin melaka since hubby's cousins held a wedding reception and many family members were there. kak long had brought mak to meet her relatives and mak looked so happy and cheerful. after 12 noon, we'd left to kesang where papa had visited few of his cousins ..

we'd left jasin and heading to batu 9 cheras where hani's colleague aziz and wifey, zakiah called for the doa selamat since they'll be leaving to perfom hajj this thursday. had met few sms clans there and we'd promised pn zaiton to be at her residence then ..

balik kampung 160911

alhamdulillah lately we managed to balik kampung on a monthly basis since ayoh @ cekgu lloh's condition is not that good .. family from kelantan is not coming to aliff's wedding since it is not school holidays, it's proper if aliff is back home to see ayoh & cek and seek their blessings ..

with aliff on the wheel, we left home sweet home at 12 midnite via kuala lipis - gua musang route and had reached cek's house around 6 am and the traffic is not as heavy as the festive season. that thursday night, only aqeel is at home since he'd planned with his friends and aamal & najmi is putting a night in gombak

had called kak tengku, hani's immediate neighbour who's also back in kota bharu upon reaching rumah cek since we'd planned to go to pekan mundok, thailand's border after more than 25 years. we'd crossed the border via sampan and it only cost a dollar each. initially, hani was rather afraid upon looking at our askar on our malayaland and the soldadu thai on their land but with an entourage of 15 members, the feeling was gone seconds later ..

we'd placed orders for aliff's door gifts the last time we're home and just in time to collect them; were rather disappointed cos the gifts are not ready and we'd to wait for another 3 weeks, hence we'd decided to buy anything on the shelve ..

cek's house which is still in renovation mode is almost complete except for the small touchups here and there and at last, cek is able to have a peace of mind and some time on her own; poor cek has to bear with all the mess and the workers for more than half a year ..

my mom, cek is taking care of her father, tok yasin who is almost 100 years old is looking too frail with only bones and skin, his memory had deteriorate and so is his hearing. most of the time, atok is seen sleeping except for makan time .. didoakan yang terbaik buat atokku and to cek who'd been so patient with her father's kerenah, hani salute and tabik spring ..

had managed to visit cousin haiqal in pasir pekan, poksu ki's eldest boy who managed to secure MARA scholarship to do mechanical engineering in ireland and haiqal had left malayaland yesterday. all the best to haiqal and welcome to the engineers club ..

immediately after solat subuh sunday morning, we'd left rumah cek and had stopped at restaurant tepi sungai in tanah merah for breakfast and had taken gua musang - cameron highland for out route home. we'd stopped for more than an hour to have our brunch and feel the cold wind blowing in cameron highland and the place is so serene and tranquil, alhamdulillah cos masih dapat menikmati keindahan alam .. around 2.30pm, we'd reached our pondok and aamal had packed us lunch

nukilan ..

yesterday, hani had been browsing my old writings in nukilanhani .. and was very happy to read it back cos it rekindled back the old memories, especially when there's the day and date

most of hani's writings is about us, hani's family and those who are just around hani .. and indeed, hani is not suprised since those days, our avtivities are merely makan makan and jalan jalan .. besides my collection of best and beautiful quotes

before using the new blog format, hani is so eager to upload photos but currently, guess it's not that user friendly and demanding more of hani's time, hani just stop by to pen few sentences before it's filled with spider webs .. and to hani's silent readers ( know of few ..) tq so much and can add hani at the fb since many photos are uploaded ..

guess a good writer has all the advantages ... hani is writing just for fun and a memoir to my anak cucu

beautiful quotes ..

# when you were 15 years old, i said i love you .. you blushed, you look down and smile ..
when you were 20 years old, i said i love you .. you put your head on my shoulder and hold my hand, afraid that i might disappear ..
when you were 25 years old, i said i love you .. you prepare breakfast and serve it in front of me, and kiss my forehead and said "you better be quick, it's gonna be late .."
when you were 30 years old, i said i love you .. u said "if you really love me, please come back early after work .."

# when you are tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you

# you get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself

# people pay more attention to what you do that what you say

# doing what we like is freedom, liking what what we do is happiness

# freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better

# everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it

# a beautiful life does not just happen .. it is build daily in humility, sacrifice and love

# the result of anger is more painful than the reason of anger

# life is simple, it's just not easy ..

# map out your future, but do it in pencil

# he that dares not venture must not complain of ill luck

# use your stumbling blocks as stepping stones

# you may not be perfect in many things, but many things cannot be perfect without you

# don't trust too much, don't love too much, don't hope too much ..cos that too much can hurt you too much

# you'll not meet the right person, until you let go the wrong one .. you'll never reach happiness, until you set free all the tears .. you'll never taste freedom, until you open your mind for others .. you'll never feel people's pain, until you witness their struggle ..

wedding preparation

alhamdulillah, within a period of 10 months, we are getting 2 new members to the family and a most welcome to najmi yahya, who's with us since december 2010 and insyaallah in october 2011, khairunnadiah kamaruzzaman will be part of zakaria saat's (zs) clan ..

as a mum and overseeing the whole process, hani noticed that there's a vast difference in the wedding preparation between the bride and groom side. for aamal's wedding, we'd decided to hold the event back in our pondok and many small touches were done much earlier. as the host, many events had to be planned such as the berinai, marhaban, nikah and the reception as well as the bertandang to the man's side. for all events, different caterers and door gifts were chosen ..

as for aliff, only a small reception for majlis menyambut menantu (bertandang) are planned and we'd decided to hold it at 'piasa' in country homes resort. the theme, caterer and door gifts had been identified and taken care. before the majlis akad nikah which is to be held at masjid putrajaya, hani had decided to play host for kelas fardhu ain and doa selamat by datin nik noraini. well, the door gifts for this event had not been chosen yet ..

really pray that aliff and nadia's wedding will be a smooth sailing event .. and all the children will live happily ever after in sakeenah and rahmah

salam eid fitri

another apology for keeping this blog full with spiderwebs .. guess it's not too late to wish all friends (silent / openly) selamat hariraya aidilfitri maaf zahir dan batin ..

for another 2nd consecutive year, we're not celebrating our hariraya in kelantan since papa wanted to be with mak who's not that fine. insyaallah, we'll be home during the eid adha ie: after aliff and nadia's wedding reception. hubby and hani had flew back for a week during the nuzul quran holidays .. it's so good to be with cek and ayoh for iftar and solat terawih

plenty of hariraya photos were uploaded in hani's facebook; as usual the first day is occupied with visiting family members and they came visiting us on the second day ..

ramadhan - alhamdulillah

time flies so fast ... today is already the 10th ramadhan

alhamdulillah, despite of aqeel and najmi only coming back over the weekends, everyday the whole family is breaking fast at home sweet home. normally hani had not been doing lots of cooking but for the fasting month, a little effort is put in. the menu for the day is decided after hubby comes back from work which is around 4 or 5; papa will always buy what he wants and hani's job is just to complement for the additional dishes ..

alhamdulillah, this year hani is blessed since for the first time in 3 years of staying home, hani managed to lead the tadarus quran among closest friends. my only daughter, aamal who'd resigned from work recently is able to be one of them; it's really a bless since hani had been longing for aamal to recite quran and perform solat tarawih kat masjid as she'd been so busy and hectic since college days and uncertain working hours .. all this while, hani had been reciting the quran alone back home and before ramadhan, we decided to form a small group among closest friends to check on our readings. actually a bigger group of muslimah bertadarus kat masjid but hani was begged to do at home ..

as for solat tarawih dibulan ramadhan, as always hani is so eager to be at the mosque; disamping dapat menunaikan kewajipan, hani dapat bertemu kembali dengan makcik2 dan teman2 dari taman yang berdekatan country homes yang akan datang bertarawih dimasjid. ramai kenalan2 baru akan hani jumpai. memandangkan tahun nii, masjid country homes hanya mengadakan solat tarawih sebanyak 8 rakaat sahaja di mana selepas 4 rakaat akan dimanafaatkan dengan tazkirah yang disampaikan oleh penceramah2 jemputan, banyak ilmu2 dan pengetahuan dapat ditimba dan dihayati .. alhamdulillah

sekali lagi, kami tidak dapat menyambut raya di kelantan memandangkan keadaan mak yang tidak mengizinkan, hubby and hani will be flying to pasir mas on the 17th august ie: nuzul quran for 5 days dan dapatlah kami berjumpa dengan cek dan ayah di kampung. really pray that the renovation work is completed since hani's sister, aya had decided to add another 3 rooms and a hall to the existing cek's house. insyaallah, kami akan meluangkan masa untuk menziarah atok, aunties and uncles disamping adinda2. yeah, craving for delicious and yummy kelantanese food, we'll be going round buying and eating ccolek after tarawih in pasir mas nanti .. alhamdulillah

guess after raya puasa nati, we'll be busy with aliff and nadia's wedding preparation and as of now, wedding cards are already with us .. alhamdulillah

terlalu banyak nikmat yang kami kecapi tetapi terlalu sedikit aku membalas jasa2MU .. Ya ALLAH, masukkanlah aku kedalam golongan yang bersyukur dan mendapat rahmatMU ..

salam dearest

it'd been more than a month since hani penned something down. so sorry for the incompetence and bad time management ..

actually for the month of june, we were tied up with nik hafiz and shazana's wedding; hafiz is the son of our immediate neighbour abang khalid and kak tengku rahama and shaza hails from seremban. we were in seremban for majlis akad nikah and bersanding and managed to visit hani's perintis colleague, noran who is recuperating from her illness. a week later, majlis menyambut menantu was held in rawang and hani and family were quite busy with the reception.

my mum-in-law was with us during the weekends and we were so happy to see mak laughing and giggling over p.ramlee's movies on tv. mak is almost her normal self despite some small hiccups here and there ..

aqeel had registered in MSU and he's enrolling the Foundation in Business Management. for this first year, aqeel stayed in the hostel and will be back after class on friday. really pray that aqeel will excel in his studies despite being the student leader for the foundation course ..

early july recently, hani's son-in-law, najmi had pursued his master degree in ALAM melaka for a year and he'll be back every weekend and aamal, who had resigned from her work is still commuting between gombak and rawang; still no sign of hani being a grandma yet, heheehe ..

preparation for aliff's wedding is progressing slowly and we'd confirmed the venue for the reception. the majlis nikah and bersanding for nadia's will be held on saturday 15th october in putrajaya lakeside and a small majlis menyambut menantu will be held on the 29th october at mokhdar resort (formally known as duta palms) in country homes rawang. really pray that all the receptions will be smooth sailing ..

beloved ..

with papa and aqeel, hani had been at home sweet home in pasir mas during the labor day visiting beloved cek & ayoh who'd not been that fine .. was so happy cos both of them had recovered slowly

cek's house is still under renovation cos aya, younger sister had decided to add another 2 more rooms besides another one hall to the house. we'd discussed on the new interior of the house and on hani's small contribution to cek's house.

another sister, ana had bought us dinner at azma's restaurant in pasir pekan, the food was so delicious and yummy especially the nasi kerabu, nasi dagang, laksam and kuih muih tradisional. all of us then left to visit our youngest uncle, poksu ki & family who's staying somewhere near. poksu & family had just been back from a-3-year working stint in labuan sabah and they'd brought along 2 new cars, the new honda accord and toyota wish ..

tho we're there for only 2 days, hani was so happy cos had managed to present small gifts to both cek & ayoh for mother's day ..

27th anniversary ..

this year, it was on tuesday and the kids had decided to celebrate our 27th anniversary at fullhouse giza sunway. najmi had finally arrived home after a 3-month stint in labuan and the next day, is nadia's 26th birthday ..

we were there at 8.30pm and the food ordered was awesome, tq so much najmi. we'd received a set of 4 mugs and bowls from nadia & aliff whereas najmi & aamal had presented mama with chocolates and a carton of cigarettes to mr mama ..

thanks ALLAH for giving me the best despite of small hiccups here and there .. the birth of aliff, aamal & aqeel and seeing them grow to become who they are now is really the joyous moment ..

and to darling dearest, pls stay the way you are cos the inner you had really tied hani down .. insyaallah there will be more glorious and golden anniversaries to celebrate

friends ..

am praying that all hani's friends are in the finest of health and strong wealth. this list will be expanded from time to time and insyaallah, this page will always be edited as and when is necessary ..

guess all of us feel the same when dealing with friends .. the longer we know someone, the closer we feel tho we hardly meet and see them ..
  • zakiah ismail - we were classmates in the primaries (year 1 to year 6) before hani left to be in boarding school. being from the same kampung, we tend to cross path once a while till recently, hani was informed she's battling with bone cancer. during hani's short trip back home recently, tried to visit her but she was admitted in husm and no visitors allowed .. praying that 'mek' yah (our clan's nickname) banyak2 bersabar dan tabah menghadapi segalanya
  • rohaya abdullah - we are distant cousins but were together in boarding school and used to share beautiful and sweet memories. aya is now happily married and staying far away from us, the clans. we hardly see each other except for family functions and raya celebrations and do really pray that she's as healthy as ever ..
  • aznoran mohd noor - another distant cousin and we grew up together in the boarding school. noran is a successful engineer before she suffered from a disease. now, noran is still recuperating in her home sweet home in seremban. berdoa agar noran pulih dan sembuh macam sediakala ..
  • naimah othman - known as naim and hailed from kuching sarawak, we were dormates in asrama kenanga itm shah alam during our 1st year diploma. we were from different faculty where naim did insurance and hani was in the engineering. we were closed buddies besides azizah ahmad (food technology) and musirah muhamad (accountancy). all of us went our own ways upon graduating and had never crossed path .. till recently, we managed to meet and rekindled our friendship and sad to know that naim is still alone despite of being so 'hot' in her younger days
  • yati - hani didn't really know her full name since we just get acquainted recently. actually yati is the wife to hani's clan, asri muda. soon, they will be leaving to sudan since asri had sworn in to be the malaysian ambassador. tho we'd just met, hani feels that she's just one of us since we clicked immediately. bon voyage to yati & asri and insyaallah, we'll pay you all a visit one day ..

salam salam salam

it'd been a while since nukilan hani was revisited .. nothing and no one is to be blamed except own self since hani is very occupied with 'mim aliff lam sin' MALAS ..

guess hani had been increasing few inches on the waist size and the mind is preoccupied with what's cooking had slower down the activities ..
  • had not been going out for jogging since december 2010
  • had not been on the treadmill since it's now in state of 'major fault'
  • had been baking at least 2 cakes a week - aqeel's home and he loves to eat
  • likes to cook lunch and dinner cos now so lazy to go out for simpler meals
  • been couch potato for hours in front of tv
  • spending more hours on fb

before things get more worst, hani had to change my lifestyle and looking forward to wear a beautiful kebaya on aliff's wedding, inshaallah this coming october .. wish me luck dear friends

aliff is already engaged ..

saturday, 5th march 2011 at 9pm, hani's eldest aliff firdaus was officially engaged to dr khairun nadia kamaruzzaman in desa impiana puchong prima and inshaallah the wedding will be held before hari raya haji this year ..

the entourage from country homes rawang had stopped over at mak ngah's residence in mutiara indah puchong perdana where we'd performed aour maghrib prayers. only the uncles, aunties and cousins mengiringi aliff dengan membawa 5 dulang iringan dan sebentuk cincin merisik; ours was in orange whereas nadia had given us 7 trays with fresh roses and daisies .. tq so much to dearest sister-in-law, kak liza who'd produced beautiful and creative hantaran ..

nadia was so radiant and beautiful in rose pink kebaya labuh and aliff was handosme in the matching baju melayu .. pihak perempuan telah diwakili oleh pak long nadia, datuk abdul aziz whereas en mustaffa had represented aliff .. setelah doa dibacakan oleh imam hanif, kami dijemput untuk menikmati nasi beriani dan kuih muih di tepi kolam renang ..

semoga ikatan kekeluargaan yang terjalin akan berkekalan buat selamanya .. amin amin amin

al fatihah ..

at 1 pm on friday 25th february 2011, pn sabariah ahmad, 44 years old and wife to hani's cousin, ismajuri ismail had passed away in johor bharu hospital after almost 2-years battling with cancer. she'd left behind 3 small boys, izzat 8, irfan 6 and iman 3 years old ..

we had visited her few times in putrajaya hospital before she decided to be with her family in johor .. al fatihah dan semoga roh beliau bersama orang2 yang beriman

old friends meet ..

again, another overdue posting for february ..

credit to facebook since it'd helped us to get acquainted with old friends again .. after more than 3o years, hani was able to meet pn musirah who majored in accounting, pn azizah who'd done food technology and cik naimah, focusing in insurance and hani, with my electrical engineering way year 1979 .. we were dorm mates in our first year at asrama kenanga itm shah alam .. since then, we went our ways and had not crossed path, till we meet again on the 16th february in subang parade ..

naimah or well known as naim had came all the way from kuching sarawak and staying put at mus's residence in kota damansara and btw, mus who's now also a full time housewife had just been back from a 3-year stint in vietnam. zah is still working in the food industry and residing in subang jaya .. our good, naughty and mischievous young days were reflected back, lots of giggling and laughing had prolonged our lunch and everybody was so eager for updates .. we then retreat to zah's house before waiting for hubby to fetch us and called it a day ..

mus and naim had then decided to come over to hani's pondok the next day and it's a pity since zah couldn't make it cos she's working .. despite of the long silence, we'd not changed much except for the physical sizes and till we meet again dear all .. take care

renungan di pagi ahad



Jika kamu memancing ikan.... Setelah ikan itu terlekat di mata kail, hendaklah kamu mengambil ikan itu.... Janganlah sesekali kamu LEPASKAN ia semula ke dalam air begitu saja.... Karena ia akan SAKIT oleh kerana bisanya ketajaman mata kailmu dan mungkin ia akan MENDERITA selagi ia masih hidup.

Begitulah juga ......... Setelah kamu memberi banyak PENGHARAPAN kepada seseorang... Setelah ia mulai MENYAYANGIMU hendaklah kamu MENJAGA hatinya.... Janganlah sesekali kamu meninggalkannya begitu saja.... Kerana dia akan TERLUKA oleh kenangan bersamamu dan mungkin TIDAK dapat MELUPAKAN segalanya selagi dia mengingatmu....

Jika kamu menadah air biarlah berpada, jangan terlalu mengharap pada takungannya dan janganlah menganggap ia begitu teguh.... cukuplah sekadar keperluanmu.... Apabila sekali ia retak.... tentu sukar untuk kamu menambalnya semula.... Akhirnya ia dibuang.... Sedangkan jika kamu cuba memperbaikinya mungkin ia masih dapat dipergunakan lagi....

Begitu juga jika kamu memiliki seseorang, TERIMALAH seadanya.... Janganlah kamu terlalu mengaguminya dan janganlah kamu menganggapnya begitu istimewa.... Anggaplah dia manusia biasa. Apabila sekali dia melakukan KESILAPAN bukan mudah bagi kamu untuk menerimanya.... akhirnya kamu KECEWA dan meninggalkannya. Sedangkan jika kamu MEMAAFKANNYA boleh jadi hubungan kamu akan TERUS hingga ke akhirnya....

Jika kamu telah memiliki sepinggan nasi... yang kamu pasti baik untuk dirimu. Mengenyangkan. Berkhasiat. Mengapa kamu berlengah, cuba mencari makanan yang lain.. Terlalu ingin mengejar kelezatan. Kelak, nasi itu akan basi dan kamu tidak boleh memakannya. Kamu akan menyesal.

Begitu juga jika kamu telah bertemu dengan seorang insan..... yang pasti membawa KEBAIKAN kepada dirimu. MENYAYANGIMU... MENGASIHIMU... Mengapa kamu berlengah, cuba MEMBANDINGKANNYA dengan yang lain. Terlalu mengejar kesempurnaan. Kelak, kamu akan KEHILANGANNYA apabila dia menjadi milik orang ain Kamu juga yang akan MENYESAL....
