The yearly tradition, this kinda entry usually will be posted in December. Since I have been eventful lately, hence the entry will only be posted as fast as I can finish writing this. As it may seem, the New Year have come with a good deed. In Sha Allah semoga Allah permudahkan segalanya. I have turned 32 on the 31st, and yes ironically, the next day I am officially 33 already. Time flies.
Life has been much meaningful. I have learned and earned lots of good things in 2012. Indeed. The most memorable thing I shall learn by heart for the year will be;
Yours truly had officially become a ‘syok sendiri’ party planner in April 2012. Well, what can I say? That is my passion. During the kids’ birthday I am officially the party planner. Kudos to yours truly. The cost was not even nearly half to the previous years when I’ve engaged a party planner. As been mentioned thousand times earlier, I have started the grounding at the end of 2011. No matter how people been talking, it was way too early, according to them. Nevertheless, for me, being done all things by myself, and tied up with my job on weekdays and been busy over the weekend, yes i’ve made the right decision to starts early. And yes, no doubt, I am proud of myself. And the good feedbacks from friends made me anticipated. Kidding me not, there’s friends requested me to be a party planner for their kids’ birthday by now. and yes, a few event had been successfully triumph over by yours truly. Alhamdulillah.
May 2012 marked the 5th year of our marriage. The 5 years of sharing the ups & down. The 5 years of learning to accommodate all the shortcomings.
In July 2012, I went to being-ME conference. It was a one day event. My very first time attending such conference. I dont know why I’d decided to go. Was it becoz my bestie asked me to, or was it because of myself. Of which i cannot answer. Nevertheless i thanked her for opening my eyes to be there at such conference. It was actually a conference from sisters to sisters, in depth.
Being able to attend this kind of get-together with all Muslimah sisters remind me of how life is sweet. Everybody is looking after everybody else. I remember, after our Asar prayer on Saturday, my bestie hugged me and uttered “I’ve just pray for you vee” and she cried. And now, her prayers did come true. And i’ve just so speechless to say a word. Only God knows how I love her so much. Unconditionally. I know I can’t get anyone to replace her in my whole life. As much as i cried when she get married, I felt the same during the conference, to know that we love each other a lot.
Being-ME, changed my perception of life and love. Of which, one day, I hope I will change my whole life. For a better life ahead.
My other half turned not a year older but a year wiser on 25 July 2012! We love u to bits pa!
Where we love is home – home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.
Alhamdulillah. Our Slice of Heaven On Earth had been through a minor renovation in August 2012. A new flooring, a wallpaper, and a few other minor renovations here and there. As expected, i love them all to bits. It’s not only a new look, but it is where our heart will remains.
Hitch also have officially move to a new home in Wangsa Melawati in August 2012. A small pit stop for my other half. After a while of having his own office at home, the Hitch new office is now in operation. A small doa selamat and yassin recital was well thought-out by a small group of his close friends and mil’s family. Alhamdulillah.
In September 2012, I have changed, for good. A hijabista I am. We changed because of life, because of desperation, because of the funniest of things and even because of God. No matter what are the grounds, change is the law of life. Undeniably. Life needs to vary. For good obviously. Myself, for instance. It didn’t take me long before I realised, i need to change. My determination to change was indeed without waiting any longer. I’ve told my other half and he was so pleased with my intention and supported me all the way. This is the new me. My first ever picture taken as a truly hijabista.
October has been my munchkin 2nd year’s concert! She did well. A class performance of ‘bad girl’ from Rihanna. She was indeed happy with her princess-alike attire.
November was a memorable indeed for me. It was my first time ever watching a malay drama series. Seriously. After more than 20 years i think? I don’t intend to watch this initially. I was by chance watching an episode which happened to be a scene in Mekah. MasyaAllah indahnya kota Mekah. I was amazed, like seriously. Semoga Tuhan permudahkan rezeki kami sekeluarga ke sana. Ameen.
The series will end in less than 2 weeks time. And i doubt i can have any other ample time like this, to watch any other series.
December was the final month of the year. We hosted a potluck party on the 31/12 celebrating New Year and yours truly’s birthday. It was a small event. Only good friends were attended. Even though my besties couldn’t make it, but I know deep down inside we are remembering each other for the moments we had spent. Alhamdulillah. I am age gracefully. Thanks Allah swt.
And yes, last but not least, a new baby was born in December too. My other half’s new toy. Envy I was, as I always love the auspicious style of RR. And I am, still driving the black tenggiling until he told me, it’s time to change. Which dunno when.
Dear Allah, i want to take a minute,
not to ask for anything from You, but simply to say Thank You, for all i have.
2013, please be good to me, my family and all my friends surrounds me. Aamiin Ya Rabbal Alamin.
