Love for the One and Only

Rapuh

Detik waktu terus berjalan
Berhias gelap dan terang
Suka dan duka tangis dan tawa
Tergores bagai lukisan
Seribu mimpi
Sejuta sepi 
Hadir bagai teman sejati
Di antara lelahnya jiwa
Dalam resah dan airmata
Kupersembahkan kepadaMU 
Yang terindah dalam hidupku

Meski ku rapuh dalam langkah
Kadang tak setia kepadaMU
Namun cinta dalam jiwa hanyalah padaMU
Maafkanlah bila hati tak sempurna mencintaiMU
Dalam dada ku harap hanya diriMU yang bertakhta


Maafkanlah bila hati tak sempurna mencintaiMU
Dalam dada ku harap hanya diriMU yang bertakhta
Meski ku rapuh dalam langkah
Kadang tak setia kepadaMU
Namun cinta dalam jiwa hanyalah padaMU
Maafkanlah bila hati tak sempurna mencintaiMU
Dalam dada ku harap hanya diriMU yang bertakhta

Detik waktu terus berlalu 
Semua berakhir padaMU

Ya Allah, please forgive me...
I wish I could love You the way You have loved me..
I will try everyday..

Things to Smile About

"There is beauty in truth, even if it's painful. Those who lie, twist life so that it looks tasty to the lazy,
brilliant to the ignorant, and powerful to the weak. But lies only strengthen our defects. They don't teach anything, help anything, fix anything or cure anything. Nor do they develop one's character, one's mind, one's heart or one's soul..." ~ Jose N. Harris





And I got it all in one day!!

Owwh, and of course, there is the king of my heart, the reason I smile.

Have a good week ahead...

Hari Rindu Akif

"I hope you never hear those words...Your son. He died. They are different than other words. 
They are too big to fit in your ears. They belong to some strange , heavy, powerful language  that pounds away at the side of your head, a wrecking ball coming at you again and again, until finally, the words crack a hole large enough to fit inside your brain. And in so doing, they split you apart"

Like I said, some days are better than others.

Today is not one of those days.

I miss my Akif.

I desperately want what I cannot have.

I would have given up everything I have to have him here with me.

But no matter what I do, no matter how many tears I shed...even when those tears turn to blood, all I have are my dreams and a grave to remember him by.

So today is not a good day.

AKU, KAU dan DIA

"There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person. 
They are you, your private joys and sorrows, and you can never tell them.
You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them ~ Greta Garbo

Yesterday, after kissing Airiel to bits and tucking Airiel into bed, I went to watch this movie at my laptop.


Its a super sweet effort by Pierre Andre!

Summary - Mia lost her fiance, Han in a tragic accident. A year after his death, she still mourns for him. After going through an accident herself, she wakes up and strikes up a friendship with Eizlan, who makes her smile again. But can she get over Han? Can she let go of her past to give Eizlan a chance? Watch to find out readers...

A quote from the movie really struck me:-

"Cinta, adapun sukar dimengertikan...bukanlah sekadar lafaz. Tersembunyi di sebalik topeng niat yang merasakannya. Kerana wujud cinta sinar segala kesedihan. Umpama mati dalam nikmat hidup. Bebas dari belenggu nafsu. Wujud bercinta bagaikan tiada wujud. Tatkala manusia mengurakan kesesatan. Wajah bertemu wajah. Tersenyum manis pencinta sejati. Lebur dalam pelukan damai sang kekasih. Sayang, tidak akan ada yang berubah, belajar menerima apa yang didepan kita sebelum terlambat...."

So unrealistic but so darn sweet!!!! This was what Han said to Mia in a dream when Mia was conflicted about her feelings for Eizlan and her guilt for being happy with him as she till loves Han so much.

Such is life...

Alright readers...carry on! A traffic jam awaits me.. hehehe

Reading List 2013 [Part 2] - Ari Series

Hey readers,

Monday already ehh? Work awaits but hey, always time for a short post.

I am so excited to share these books I have read with you.




You know what makes these books so exciting? Greek mythology is in it. You know how much I love Greek mythology!

I read the Illiad a million times. Ok, ok lets not get too excited. Give it a read will you. It kind of shows Athena in a bad light, but as you will see by the end of the 2nd book, there is a reason to her madness...

Oh, for those who want to know what Ari means, it is short for Aristanae...pretty name ehh?


Alright readers. Have a good week ahead! I feel good about his week!

Name Dropping

"Ada teratak di hujung kampung, bawah cermin kopak ada kotak
Tersembunyi dalamnya ada tempurung, sembunyi bawahnya katak melalak"


Those who know me from high school would know that that's were I became antisocial. Those who know me from my uni days would know that I was antisocial then. I rarely spoke and was walking around with my headphones everywhere. Those who know me now would know that I am STILL antisocial and yes I still do walk around with earphones everywhere.

I rarely attend events of high school mates or unimates and even at work unless it is absolutely compulsory (and even then, my colleagues drag me to it), because I just get uncomfortable at these kind of things. If my mates (be it high school, uni or work) want to tell me things, I listen. If they want to ask for my help, I go out of my way to do it. If they ask for my advice, I will give it and you can bet that they are going to hear what they NEED to hear as opposed to what they want to hear. Because you know what? That is what FRIENDS do. There should be no other reason.

I was so darned furious when someone told me I had a twitter account, because you  know what, I don't have one. I hate twitter, I hate instagram (no offence to whoever who swears by it, this is just me being antisocial) and I literally fell of my chair when a friend suggested I go on keek (yes there is such a thing) because I thought she was swearing at me.

This blog and FB is a place where I can share with my readers about where to eat, where to shop, where to find support groups for worthy causes (like Palestine) and support groups for diseases like Akif's hydrops. It's where I vent. It keeps me sane. It is perhaps the only place where I can truly speak without speaking (get my drift?). Because I love writing. Its a passion, its an obsession. It makes me happy. It gives me perspective. When I read back the posts I wrote, I remember how I was, how things were. It is to make me always remember who I am.

I do not appreciate it when my unimates, workmates, high school mates or total strangers drop my name around and spread stories that are just untrue about me. I mean, what the heck? I am sort of used to my relatives doing it yeah, but let's not go there shall we?

I am not a damned celebrity, or a socialite and it boggles my mind that anybody would want to talk about me, much less claim to know details of my life.

Please people, we are not in high school anymore, we are not in university anymore. We are in our thirties and have families. Stop acting like children. Stop talking about people or things you do not understand. If you got nothing nice or true to say, then SHUT UP. If you have something to say about ME, then you might as well say it to my face and see how I respond. Henti-hentikanlah boleh?

And if you hear something from someone who heard it from someone who heard it from someone else, you know what that is called? Its called a RUMOUR...chances of it being accurate are what? ZERO. Do you really believe everything you hear?

Perangai org Melayu yg takde keje lain sungguh. And you wonder why I choose to work here. The less Malays the better (pun intended). Mulut mcm haram.

Seperti kata aku semalam, aku tak kisah. Banyak pahala aku. Ignore aje. But you can be sure as hell that I don't take crap lying down ok? Hence this post.

Online Shopping - Telekung

Hey readers,

Just bought this beautiful telekung.


This is from the online shop Kain Sulam and Jubah.

Isn't it beautiful?

I spend a lot on bags and clothes and stuff, so why not splurge a little for such an important piece of attire untuk jumpa Tuhan 5 kali sehari? Betul tak?

I plan to put a telekung in all the cars so kalau tgh travel ke apa senang nak singgah masjid or something like that untuk sembahyang.

Ok, work awaits.

Bye!!!

Chomey, Authentic Kelantanese Cuisine, The Curve

Hello readers,

Confinement is over, I am back at work so it is only fair to start posts on my food escapades once more.

Yesterday, my little family somehow ended up at the Curve and husband wanted to look for a place to have breakfast.

We ended up at Chomey, and true to its name, the decor was cute. White and Green (my fave colours).

We ordered these:-







Total damage came up to RM72 which is definitely cheaper than Kelantan Delights k? And I actually liked the nasi kerabu here better. Ohh, and they threw in free dessert, some durian thing which I couldn't eat sebab nenda says itu kena pantang lama.

Give it all a try will you?

Yumms

Peace

What is peace really?

Is it living in a country where there is no war? And yet I am sure my Aisha was at peace in her heart in war torn Gaza till the day she passed away.

Is it living in a situation where you have mounds of cash at your disposal? And yet I see people sweeping rubbish on the streets smiling, not beset by troubles with frown on their faces like the faces I see in my office everyday in their 1 thousand ringgit immaculately pressed Hugo Boss shirts and Ferragamo shoes.

Is it living knowing that you are loved by the people whom you love? But which one of us are ever truly loved and truly loves in return? More often than not love is the cause of our misery is it not? the chain that binds us and torments our dreams and memories?

I am going to be 30 this year and more than anything, I want to just live my life in peace...

I want to wake up to see Airiel's face - pray 5 times a day - go to work and be appreciated for what I do - go home and see Airiel's face - sleep with a kiss from Airiel -  buy my fave bags, shoes and clothes when I feel like it - take vacations - do things on my bucket list - hang out with my girls - hang out with my best friend - and go to sleep without having nasty nightmares.

That to me is inner peace.

I want to live my life free from drama, from pain and from constant turbulence.

This is my life and I want to live it in the best way possible.

I am still trying to figure out what is the best way...

Mama Misses You...


“You’ll get over it…” It’s the clich├ęs that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don’t get over it because ‘it” is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never loses. How could it? The particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made anodyne by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no-one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?” 


Akif oh Akif....

Tenanglah dirimu dalam kedamaian...


Mama dilanda rindu yang tiada ubatnya...

Gotta Love em Bags!


“The only obsession everyone wants: 'love.' People think that in falling in love they make themselves whole? The Platonic union of souls? I think otherwise. I think you're whole before you begin. And the love fractures you. You're whole, and then you're cracked open. ” ― Philip Roth


I am blogging from the office!

Wahaha, I am back and man, I have to admit that its good to be back after 4 and a half months away from the office.

I have been very very naughty and bought me some bags.


And that is not the end of it yet.

Nenda is going to Italy. And I cannot pass up the chance to ask her to buy a ton of Longchamp bags for me. Despite my love for all these different type of bags, I usually end up using my beloved Longchamp. Spacious, durable and light.

Huhu. Alright everyone, work awaits!
