lepas je solat asar pada hari jumaat, bertempat di masjid cahaya iman, bandar country homes rawang, berlangsung majlis pernikahan antara zaefrul dan raihana; zaefrul @ epol adalah anak jiran lama kami di taman bidara selayang iaitu putera sulung imam sahak dan kak suriyati manakala raihana @ ana tinggal di pangsapuri las palmas country homes. lepas je majlis pernikahan di masjid, kami dipelawa ke jamuan teh di las palmas .. imam sahak telah menjadi imam bagi solat maghrib di pondok kami

kami telah mempelawa famili abang sahak untuk transit di pondok kami sementara menunggu majlis persandingan yang diadakan pada hari sabtu. kesemua anak menantu hani hadir untuk meraikan mereka dan mengikuti rombongan epol ke majlis persandingan pihak perempuan yang bertemakan merah putih ..

had our breakfast at gazali before leaving to kak faizah abang berahim's house .. sunday 22nd jan, nini is getting engaged to solehin after 2pm and hubby had helped abang berahim to organise the event and with kak faizah, hani was aiding her with the mini pelamin and the hantaran. known as the master of all, kak faizah had done it all alone .. nasi & lauk pauk, laksa siam, (.. and they had only catered kambing golek) hantaran, pelamin and makeup nini was kak faizah's; bravo kakak ..

we, cik san and abang faisal and family had planned to go to port dickson this coming weekends ie saturday 28th .. kak ani abang faisal had invited us to stay in their apartment at ocean view resort which had not been visited for more than 10 years. thus, abang faisal, kak ani, hubby and hani had left to see and clean the place before the children are there. we are trapped in the massive jam all the way from seremban to port dickson. alhamdulillah, tho nobody was there for so many years, the place are not that very bad but lots of mopping and dusting had to be done .. being the gentlemen, both kak ani and hani were asked to go and visit the beach while the guys did the cleaning up ..

we left the apartment before 5pm and had stopped over at kgns club for dinner .. this morning, hubby had left early for golf in lembah beringin, aqeel is still in sleeping zone and aamal & najmi had left to gombak leaving hani and the piles of clothing for laundry .. thank you ALLAH for the sunshine and alhamdulillah for everything

fruitful sunday

the newly weds, aliff and nadia had urged hubby and hani to follow them for house hunting on sunday .. earlier, they were happy to see model houses at the mall and decided to grab it

since we are going for house window shopping (???) at areas away from town, the four of us decided to have nasi kerabu hitam for our brunch at moksu's in kundang .. hubby had drove us to sungai buloh country resort, taman saujana sungai buloh and off to desa coalfields. the newly weds were so eager to see the location of new residential area, taman seri coalfields which to hani, is rather far tho are linked with all the hiways.

both aliff and nadia are not happy with the location of taman seri coalfields and we had stopped over at few residential areas and developers .. before both of them had paid deposit and happy with the double storey linked house in saujana rawang, which is country homes neighborhood; a buyer had to terminate the snp agreement since his loan was not approved and it's a real rezeki to the newly weds since the house will be completed early next year ..

alhamdulillah, aliff and nadia will be near to our pondok and guess, it's easier for us to look after the grandchildren later, insyaallah .. had promised najmi and aamal to enquire on the land price from tanco development since both of them preferred to purchase the land and designed their own residence in country homes rawang later ..

alhamdulillah syukur diatas segala2nya ..

sat 14th jan

after not golfing for the whole of last week, papa left for golf immediately after solat subuh, aqeel is not back for the weekend since he'll be joining his friends to port dickson, aliff and nadia will be arriving after lunch, aamal will be meeting her secondary school friends at 10am since najmi is in campus completing his many many assignments .. and now, hani is home alone at pondokku

normally at this hour, hani will be on the phone bergayut ngan beloved cek but today, had called her as early as 7.30am .. now, she's getting ready cos by 9am nanti, one of ayoh's bestfriend, tok pa@ datuk mustapha muhamad, the minister will be paying him a visit after dengar that ayoh tak sihat. tok pa and ayoh used to be best buddies since they are umno hardcores but ayoh @ cikgu lloh had slowed down after too many commotions in the parti and so due to his age and health factor .. .

just now, cek was saying that there will be around 20 people and she'd not prepared anything heavy for breakfast cos tok pa's entourage will stopped over at rumah cikgu weng @ ismail for nasi dagang and laksam .. cek had only bought desserts such as cream puffs, cakes, karipap and local fruits besides kopi o and teh tarik .. guess now all my adinda adinda will be very busy helping ..

mode - sad

actually hani had made this as a status in the facebook weeks ago .. mode - sad cos all my bling bling kurungs had shrink ..

receiving wedding cards is a pleasure and attending wedding invitations had been our happy events all these while .. cos we will be able to meet people we had not seen for ages, updating the current scenarios and glancing at the new met faces, but lately, it had been a problem cos hani had no proper and beautiful attire to wear. all hani's collection of bling bling kurungs had been three sizes smaller and baju kebaya is beyond buttoned .. had to rush for ready-mades and still had to wait for alteration done

for years, hani was a 45kg lady and during the three full term pregnancies, hani's weight was only around 60 - 65kg but now, my current weight is way exceeding. hani had been on a shopping spree scouting for new jeans and pants; had been queing at the '9 months' shop at the mall for blouses and shirts and luckily, big shabby blouses with tights are in trend ..

guess at hani's age where the metabolic rate is at freezing point, the eating apetite is not a problem and you can easily buy what you wannna eat are the main factors of who i am today. our family can easily popped into the restaurants that served black pepper steak, roasted chicken, grilled salmon, lamb and chicken chops, spaghetti, and lasagna ..

we will always go to restaurants that served good nasi beriani, nasi arab and nasi bukhara with kurma kambing and always on looked out for chinese muslim shops which sell delicious rice set and yummy noodles. capati, tose and roti canai will normally be our breakfast menu with teh tarik or nescafe at mamak stalls. sate besar and sate kajang is so good to be missed too ..

lately, hani had been commuting on monthly basis visiting cek and ayoh back home in kelantan and alhamdulillah, we had discovered many restaurants that sell delicious nasi dagang, nasi kerabu, laksa and laksam besides the best ayam percik in town. hani still has the sweet tooth and buah tanjung, akok and puddings are still my must have desserts ..

penning down all hani's favourite food made me realise that our crave for good and delicious food is the main contributor for hani's physical size change. had been jogging three times a week at the lake, on the exercise bike for 20 mins a day and sleeping in hani's infra red sauna set for half and hour three times a week will only help to sustain the current weight. since the last few years, if time and situation permits, hani had been fasting every monday and thursday but dearest hubby had always spoilt me since he'll be bringing hani to good restaurants for berbuka puasa ...

besides changing the whole wardrobe, hani will try best to be able to wear my beautiful bling bling collections and organza kebaya2 again .. alas, alhamdulillah the medical tests results show that hani is fit and fine, no medicines needed ...

the desk top had corrupted and the laptops had been away with the kids, hani had no choice but to be addicted to the usage of the ipad2, tho the application is rather limited but it had stolen away most of hani's free time ..

postings on the blog had been via the ipad and thus, no photos can be pasted since it takes longer hours to mingle with it, thus for a moment hani is only able to write the happenings without any illustrations hahaha .. actually, those who had been hani's friends on fb is able to browse the albums ..

more and more games had been uploaded and hani had been rather addicted to it .. will be spending of hours with sudoku, scrabble, tetris and many more, except when there are invitations for makan2 and jalan2; what a way to spend time alone in the home sweet home

for this new year's resolution, hani had wished that "terjemahan alquran dapat dikhatam, difahami dan dihayati" insyaallah ..

syukur ..

as usual hani will be calling cek around 8am every day .. today, thursday 050112 for the first time after ayoh sakit last november, he's there to pick up the phone which is located at the old wing of pondok cek. alhamdulillah, it shows that ayoh is now able to walk around the house tho with the help of the tongkat ..

setelah bertanya khabar and asking for cek's where about, ayoh did say "terima kasih banyak2, ani dah jaga ayoh semasa ayoh tengah sakit sangat2. tak sangka ani dapat angkat ayoh sorang2" ... hani's voice had changed and with tears on hani's cheek, hani had just managed to mumble "tak dok gaponye banding ngan pengorbanan yang ayoh dah buat untuk kami selama nii" ..

nobody heard the phone conversation since hubby had left for work but to hani, it's the best jingle heard over the years .. terima kasih YA ALLAH diatas semuanya

hello 2012

hani was rather busy on the last day of 2011 cos it's fakhril and sayidah's wedding; fakhril is the second son of kak faizah and abang ibrahim, one of hani's best buddy in country homes. we had marhaban in the morning before ketibaan pengantin but by 3pm, both hubby and hani were exhausted and we went back to home sweet home .. najmi, aamal and aqeel went home earlier

sunday 010112 - we had planned for saad's family day at mak icah's residence where the host had prepared bbq lamb and chicken and the rest of the siblings will be on potluck. hani had informed that we'll be bringing spaghetti. aliff came back alone cos nadia was on call and hubby had left after subuh for golf. with aliff who's looking for winter clothing, hani went to jaya jusco to have our breakfast as well as buying ingredients for spaghetti .. once papa was back and the spaghetti cooked, we left to mak icah's place. mak, mami and mak ngah & family were there besides the host. there's plenty of food and abang tom had bought durian for dessert .. we left mak icah's residence after maghrib

monday 020112 - aqeel had followed abang back to hostel and they left our pondok after having cempedak goreng since nadia will be back from work around 10am. with aamal and najmi, we decided to go to cholo cholo resort and spa in ulu kali which belongs to lokman hakim's family ie lilo's husband. lilo was aamal's college mate and we'd missed their wedding last november since hani was back to,pasir mas. the resort is so beautiful, serene and tranquil. we had our feet in the hotspring before both hubby and hani had the full body massage at the spa. we had a fun time with lilo and hubby and had left the resort almost by maghrib. lots of fruits were along the roadside and hubby had stopped over to buy very fresh and cheap durian and manggis .. insyaallah we'll be visiting lilo again
