Pretty good for a word sandwich, no?

Just like what it says, Eid with stethoscope!

Actually long before I came back to UK from summer break, I've already made a mental note on what to wear for Eid this time. Raya haji. Semangat ok! Siap tanya Adam dia bawak baju melayu apa so that we can match.

Turned out we only matched for one thing.

The stethoscope!

Even with that I had to ask him to take a picture with his steths since he's doing psychiatry at the moment, and psych people ain't got time to listen to people's chest. They're only good at listening to the heart (ie what patients have got to say, deep down from the bottom of their heart). Hehe.

No offence to budding psychiatrists out there! (well, me?)

To make it even nicer, we actually didn't get to celebrate Eid together since I'm in Northampton now, and I was too lazy to go back to Leicester for a day just for Eid, nevermind the fact that Leicester is just an hour away. It's like bila makcik jiran sebelah rumah tanya, "tak balik kampung ke raya ni?"

"Tak makcik, malas. Tapi sejam je perjalanan sebenarnya." 

A sacrifice I made for my education and learning. Cannot brain, lol.

But anyways, hope you guys had a good Eid, with the true meaningful message of sacrifice that it brings with. I'm a little bit too far ie detached at the moment I must admit, must step back and find 'the purpose' asap. 

And.. With all that's been going on at Makkah at the moment, al-fatihah, He knows best. May Allah grant the strength and ease the hearts of their loved ones.

Cohabiting: Quick update.

I am so unwell it hurts.

Now now, having disappeared for nearly 2 months and suddenly coming back whinging of being unwell? What have I become? *cries at the corner*

A little life update in general. I'm so swamped with things. Suddenly we are forced to become adults the moment we moved in together. (And I thought having our own place together would be nice and dandy). Haaahhhh.

Nevertheless Alhamdulillah we're settling in quite nicely. The other day Adam called Wan (his nenek) just to update her on stuff when suddenly Wan asked,

"Duduk berdua tu, tak gaduh ke?"

In which Adam replied, "Mana ada gaduh Wan, sayang je."

Kahkah, sweet bakhang. Iyo lah tuu. Apparently quite a few people have been wondering how we're getting on with our cohabitation progress. Even Lin's mom (Lin was my housemate last time, with Nadd) was wondering the same as she knows I pindah rumah to live with Adam.

True enough, while a lot of people around our age were gleaming and beaming and excited (we are, too!) for the big progress in our relationship, the older generation (actually takde lah tua sangat, more like the wiser ones) saw it more of a transition into a completely different world.

Betul wehhh. I think sejak hidup berdua ni kerja I ialah maaaaaasak je. Kalau dulu duduk sorang makan lauk sama 3-4 hari takde hal, sekarang rasa macam, mana boleh, mesti lah nak serve husband yang best best kan.

Camtu ha.

Kan dah geli.

Haha. Still, other than the fact that I have been so unwell since the last few days, Alhamdulillah things are good. They're so good that I don't even have the time to write! (Alasan tak nak kalah).

I'll end this quick note with a little anecdote.

There was a day when Adam and I went to Asda (a hypermarket, equivalent to Tesco and stuff) to buy some groceries and things. We ended up spending more than we should and it made Adam a little unhappy, I guess. He then asked if it's normal for me to spend such amount on groceries.

I thought he sounded accusatory (as he was the one who paid for them) and took it rather bitterly, by saying that I can pay as well, money isn't really an issue. Needless to say, we spent the night being cold to each other, not saying much.

The next morning he saw me taking morning shower and washing my hair (which I rarely do in the morning, too lazy to use hairdryer). He then asked if I wanted to use his hairdryer or mine, I said it didn't matter (rather blatantly, plus the cold tone). Next thing I knew was this.

He actually took the time to set this up, find the extension, plug it in and put the hairdryer there. Of course by the time I saw it he's already left for work, and I was left with a guilt.

It reminds me of this saying,

"Just because somebody doesn't love you the way you want them to, 
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have."

He could choose not to do this, but he did it anyway. This is his way of saying I love you. Like how he does all the laundry once I've left to Northampton. (YES I'M ON OUTBLOCK, AGAIN).

I'm writing this to remind myself in the future, that how simple things can be an act of love. Jangan asyik nak merajuk emo tak tentu hala je, tahu?

Really wanted to show around our new place, but it's not quite done yet, so I'll leave you to the view of my room in Northampton.

This will do for now, haha. Til then!
