About Me

My photo
I am married to my loving husband for more than 38 years now. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children, until 11 years ago when I lost my youngest son. Since then my life is forever altered but yet unbroken....

Sunset and sunrise...

“A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it..."

We slept late last night after cleaning up the mess in the living room.

Today we decided to drive to Mersing, Johor and drive along the coastal roads of Pahang and Terengganu. We stayed a few nights at the small chalets and admired the sunset and sunrise from the serene beaches.

Like a Disaster Movie...

"Live with no excuses and love with no regrets..."

We convoyed in 10 cars and visited relatives as far as Kundang Ulu and Felda Bukit Serampang. We also visited the graves of our nenek and moyang and listened to Atok Abah narrating stories of the famous and not so famous great, great grand-parents.

We reached our Putramas apartment late after midnight and got a shock of our lives! The whole wall in our living room collapsed, destroying my precious terrarium and the side table. Luckily the TV and TV table escaped unscathed.

It may take a while to get the wall repaired. We may want to leave the wall as it is.

Hik hik.. Menitik air mata…

Hari Raya Eidul-fitri...

"Sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you are down, will be the one who helps you get up..."

We went to Mesjid Wilayah for the solat eidul-fitri. I cooked the kuah lodeh after the prayer and packed some to be brought back to Melaka later. This year, hubby's family gathering was at Zin’s place and we brought satay for pot-luck. As usual we had photography sessions after the makan-makan. By the time we drove back to Melaka it was late evening and we were among the last to arrive.

After a heavy dinner with all of the siblings, nephews, nieces and grand-children, we went to the chalets and rested early. For tomorrow, we are going berhari-raya to our uncles and aunties houses in Melaka and Johor.
