The sound of home.


Me, Nadd and Abil were screaming our lungs out in the kitchen playing some rock kapak songs while aimlessly going through our notes trying hard not to flip the kitchen table out of stress and annoyance of the endless exam revisions - when suddenly I made a dangerous decision to play this song on the iPad.

And ended up crying. 

People, messing about with your own emotions when the exam is just around the corner and you have no flights tickets whatsoever to look forward to is the next stupidest thing you can do other than making denial trip out of town (in which case, you have to be really smart to be that stupid). 

Scratch the cheap desperate attempts to get over the first love, this song (or rather, Bryan Adams) always reminds me of my Ayah and Ummi. It's their song. And pretty much everytime I listen to this song and (Everything I Do) I Do It for You - I'd pause and flinch.

Things smell like home - sambal belacan, asam pedas, you name it, that's pretty usual.



But this, 

is the sound of home.

The great lunch.


Ayam goreng kunyit, sup sayur pak choi with telur, sambal belacan.

Probably my best lunch since I can remember.

Clouds.

Only miss the sun when it starts to snow"

My two boys.



One's growing up, another's growing old.


Time --- it's the fleeting moments that matter.

Cut the rope.




Dan sesungguhnya Kami telah mengulang-ulangi bagi manusia dalam Al Qur’an ini bermacam-macam perumpamaan. Dan manusia adalah makhluk yang paling banyak membantah.
[Al Kahf: 54]





Dan manusia adalah makhluk yang paling banyak membantah.

Undying love.

For the two most beautiful women I've ever known..

This one goes to my very own mum in Sarawak.. I LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH! 



And this one's for my MIL in KL! Or should I say.. Selangor?

Oh well at first I wasn't sure if I should buy her flowers. I'm guessing that flowers aren't really her thing, so I went for the chocolate instead. And I made the right choice yay!


Anywhoo, I looooooove the fact that both the flowers and chocolate are in pink and purple. Tooooo much love!

Dear mums, I love you two sooooo much that I pray everyday you're showered with His blessings and all the happiness in the world! And may He look after you like how you've been looking after us for the past 22 years, and another forever more to come.

"The greatest gift that a mother can give is life."

Thank you for the undying love. 
I couldn't be more blessed.

A heart to fix.

It's that moment again. I'm slumped.

Meanwhile I'll leave you with this beautiful zikr, while I'm busy fixing my heart.


"Those who believe, and whose hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah, verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest. 

[Ar-Ra'd: 28]

Of dissertation and life updates.

Tuesday 30th April
Done with my own version of disso. Thought I could take a deep breath and chill, so I decided to have some pre-submission celebration at Yo! Sushi. I just wanted to try their Mega Katsu Curry and Nadd has been craving for sushi since Easter break. So to Sushi we Yoooooo!


Wednesday 1st May
I was struggling to finalise my dissertation after Afif gave the last feedback on my dissertation at 11pm. Free 40 minutes lecture, just what I needed on the night before submission. Not too bad though, since it's always good to have second (or third, fourth) opinion. So there was, another sleepless night in wrapping things up. Mind you, I'm not the type of person who can easily stay up. I go to bed at about 10-ish every night, so staying up til 3am is reeeeally not my thing. Nevertheless I had something to keep me awake that night. 

The warning.


At 1am, all my devices was making some weird sounds. Even the iPod down in the most bottom drawer (I couldn't even remember when did I enable the WiFi!). Turned out it was the reminder for tomorrow's submission at 4pm. How nice. Just what I needed when I was cracking my head going around PubMed lookin for some nice research to make my disso look clever. Meehhh. 

Thursday 2nd May
I wasn't done with the disso at least until 10am. AND I REALLY NEEDED TO GO TO MED SCHOOL TO PRINT IT OUT BY 11AM OR THERE'D BE A MASSIVE QUEUE OF PEOPLE WANTING TO PRINT THEIR DISSO. Panic attack. Alhamdulillah. Got it done and printed. Only to find out there were spelling and punctuation errors I missed (mostly spacing stuff). So I had to amend it there, at school, and print it all over again. Total cost of two copies of disso, plus major re-printing for the minor spacing errors - almost £10, not bad ey.


ALLAHUAKBAR! 

Went to submit it at Student Support Office with Nadd. And submitted it online in Turnitin after much drama in deciding what to name our files. Lol. Oh well yes me and Nadd were in this whole disso journey thing all the way. And I am so thankful for that. Nadd was saying, "As much as we are destructive to each other, we know that we have each other's support too." Couldn't be any truer. Because we really could be destructive to each other. Lol.

Met Aisyah and Ajwad on our way out. Just had to take pictures with them. JUST HAD TO.


Because we were all in purple. Unintentionally. Hikhiks.

And went for a nice celebration. Oh well it's just some lunch lol. But boy it never felt this gooood.


Calzone and some Moroccan murtabak. Lunch date for two, yes please.

Earlier that night I was tweeting oh how I miss Tsara, and this was what I got the next day.


"Doakan adik ipar you." Lol she couldn't be any comel-er than this.

All the best for IB strong ones!

Friday 3rd May
Went for another post-submisison celebration. Actually me and Nadd have had sooooo many celebration that we lost track. The pre-bukak sekolah celeb, pre-submission celeb, post-submission celeb (and that was twice, I think?) Lol. Hedonisme sungguh.

So here's to another post-celebration celebration! This time with Abil.


Lamb chop sizzlers.


Talapia sizzlers (how kampung could it be?)

Saturday 4th May
A day of drama! Lol. The first time I ever did livetweet. Lol I still can't get over it. Probably will put in in another entry (or not cause I've said that waaaaay too many time and still haven't done it). Heh. But anyway.. 


Mommy got you boy!
