About Me

I am married to my loving husband for more than 37 years now. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children, until 10 years ago when I lost my youngest son. Since then my life is forever altered but yet unbroken....

(MITEC new building, seen from Sri Putramas 22nd floor)

Since we moved into our Bidara House we make a point to spend at least a night in a week at our Sri Putramas apartment.

From the 22nd floor of our apartment we have been following the development of the The new Matrade Exhibition and Convention Centre. The new convention centre has the shape of a rubber seed and will be linked to the existing Menara Matrade.

The MITEC is expected to be completed by the middle of 2016. But now it is already August and they are still working hard around the clock.

Silent Sunset

Sunset is a pretty thing, 
so bathed in mystery,
And yet it is the saddest thing, 
when drenched with memory,

Sodden sunset soak the tears,
That fall so endlessly,
Silent sunset take my hand, 
and bring me down with thee...

Still bearing fruits...


"Count your rainbows, not your thunderstorms..."

(Old durian trees)
(A good harvest)

The durian season is in full swing.

Two weeks ago when hubby visited our kebun in Sungai Rambai the fruits were still unripe and gave no indication of dropping. But since last week, they have started harvesting. The harvest it quite bountiful so we shared some with siblings and relatives in our kampung.

These few days, I am going to indulge in durian feast.Contrary to popular belief, durian is not harmful to our health. In fact, this king of fruits has good monounsaturated fats that can actually lower cholesterol levels and moderate high blood pressure.

Regardless, durian must be consumed with moderation as it is also high in calories and carbohydrates.

Raya gathering at Datin Maheran's...

True Friend

© Ashley Campbell 

A friend is like a star that twinkles and glows
Or maybe like the ocean that gently flows
A friend is like gold that you should treasure 
And take care of forever and ever

A friend is like an angel that is there to guide you
A friend is someone you can trust out of a few
A friend is more than one in a million 
They are one in a ca-zillion
And you, my friend, are very special

Salam Eidil-Fitri...


"May Allah accept our good deeds, forgive our transgression..." 

(Second day of Raya in Melaka)

In every shared smiles and laughter
In every prayers answered...
In every opportunity that comes our way
May Allah bless us greatly...

Eid Mubarak!
