Festival Pengantin Malaysia

In Shah Alam, Dewan Raja Muda Musa, Kompleks Belia. It is a three day festival showcasing decorations from various participants, wedding caterers, wedding card designers e.g Image Creative Studios, Berkat DN Enterprise, Kumpulan Segi Seri, Mahligai Impian and not to forget Acik Catering (A business owned by my brother in law and his family).




There was a fashion show highlighting the latest wedding gowns and new designs as well. By the way, the best part was when Black Mentor performed three songs in the afternoon. Everyone enjoyed...........

Be Grateful

While waiting for  our turn in Klinik Haiwan Yap yesterday, a lady and her son came in bringing along two kittens with them.  Apparently, they claimed that the cute little kittens were found abandoned by the roadside. Alhamdulillah they were blessed when found by such a  kindhearted family who is really concerned and sincere. Hopefully many more will have compassion and sympathy towards  Allah's creatures, In shaa Allah. .......

By the way, it is not about the kittens that touched my heart, but her son. I didn't realise in the beginning until I noticed something was not right with him.

May I share my conversation with him while waiting for his mother being consulted by Dr. Yap.

Me : Siapa nama adik?
       : Amirul.

Me : Umur Amirul berapa tahun?

Amirul : 4 tak 3 tahun. (Looking at Amirul I was surprised with his answer coz he appeared to be at least 17 years of age :) ).

Me       : Amirul tak pegi sekolah ke?
Amirul : dah habis sekolah.
Me      : Oh umur 3 tahun tapi dah habis sekolah ye. Lepas tu buat apa.
Amirul : Ikut ayah gi wepair(repair) keta. Keluar tayar masuk tayar. Ayah keja wepair keta.

Then both of us went into the room full with cats including Casey. There were SEVEN altogether...

Me     : Amirul kira ada berapa ekor kucing semua dlm. bilik ni.

He started to count and answered,

Amirul : Ada 21 ekor sume, hi hi.....(Such a sincere respond and proudly claiming he counted them right).

Syakira and Hasya smiled at each other. I was right.  After a while his mom came out and she claimed to me, "Anak saya ni memang bising sebab dia ni OKU, tulah hyper sangat".

That moment was really meaningful. Amirul, such a jovial but a  less fortunate person. Nevertheless he is full of love, caring and concerned towards animals. We could see from his expressions and actions. As for his mother, I sincerely respect her as a  very strong person. Despite the fact that she is raising a less fortunate son who needs special care and attention, she is still willing to look after the abandoned kittens, sending them to the vet to ensure they are fit and healthy. I pray for their happiness and blessings from Allah.

A reminder to me, my kids and to all that we should  always be thankful, appreciate  and grateful to Allah for the blessings rendered to us......

"Look up to one who is greater in piety so you strive to be like him and look upon one who is below you in material status so that you may be thankful to Allah's Grace".In Shaa Allah.

What was wrong with me? It shouldn't have happened if I did not turn back.The old folks used to remind us " kalau dah mulakan perjalanan jangan patah balik tak baik". It happened  last Thursday morning when Haziq wanted to attend his Co curriculum in school early in the mornig. It was fine at first but on our way he left something and insisted me to turn back. I did but not realising Casey our dearest cat was behind the car. Couldn't believe it and I unintentionally hit him!!

Seing Casey struggling for few seconds was never my dream. He was really writhing in pain when a neighbour passed by and claimed to us "he will die"....

Casey di dalam pejalanan ke klinik selepas kejadian.

I might sound crazy but to see him suffering makes me feel guilty. If only arwah is still around. Arwah Hanif adored him so much, in fact everyone does and will be my loyal mate listening to me especially during my grievances. As though he understands and responded well everytime talking to him.

Hurriedly brought him to the nearest vet and it was claimed Casey was hit seriously and the accident affected the whole nerve system.  It is a 50 50 chances, may lead him to coma or total paralysed. I can't believe it and the worst part is that I was the person who caused everything. Its only a cat but Casey means a lot. The day he was admitted and after listening to the explanation, both of us (Hasya and me) were extremely upset. It happened just like that in seconds but unfortunately Casey has to suffer for his entire life. How I wish.... and if only.....

It has been two days. When we visited Casey yesterday and the moment we entered the room he was responding and making noise. I really hope and pray for miracles. Allah is great and we're still hoping Casey will recover, one day........

Life's Like That

It has been almost a month that I last updated the blog.  Too occupied. Things which were compiled and submitted in order to the respective parties (govt. dept. and private sectors) are now pending. The processes are very complicated , time consuming which I personally think very annoying and to some I extent I feel they are purposely treating you unfairly. Unless if you are the Pn. Sri or Datin or maybe a well known celebrities or even someone who holds a title, then I am very certain their experiences are just like fairy tales.
Once everything is in order I wish to share the experiences with everyone especially single moms with no title just like me.

 Being alone for almost eight months allow me to see things differently.  No matter how strong you are trying to prove to your kids and others, I must admit that sometimes you are lying to yourself. Yes, as time goes by people are judging and supporting. A very cliche approach, "Ni dah ok ni , sabar banyak banyak semua ni ada hikmah. U kena fikir ada orang tu lagi susah suami meninggal tiba tiba , duit tak ada. U ni kira untungla sangatkan. Apa nak risau rumah, rezeki untuk ank ada, tak ada masalah, Bersyukur ajalah" Well thats about it..... thanks anyway . I must agree and I must feel gifted in a way ( if that's the best way to say it). Its kind of a relief when you share and listen to those who are in the same boat instead. Its not about not being thankful but its about feelings and different challenges. A friend of my sister apparently took seven years to accept it, and no doubt she was left with good health and wealth and she is a professor. In fact I think her children had settled down. In a way a person can only understands the true feelings when she experiences herself....

A person with a single title or to be more precise Ms. "J" is also an issue. You are always misjudged in every aspect as though you are a very dangerous creature to all wives out there. This is the fact although you are just a simple person.....(kalau Cik Ta tu lainla kan)
As life goes on you face different challenges and surroundings.

Hope to continue in my next post:)
