New Journey

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying:

A woman may be married for four reasons: for her property, her status. her beauty and her religion, so try to get one who is religious, may your hand be besmeared with dust.

{Chapter 35, Book 8, Number 3457 : Sahih Muslim}

Alhamdulillah, Ive found my match in this man and we sincerely pray and hope for our marriage to last forever...

To all friends who came to our wedding, thank you so very much. It really brought joy to our big day and again, thank you

Special thank you to all vendors who helped me throughout the whole preparation and making it a success.

Holes Inside...

When all that you've tried, leaves nothing but holes inside,
It seems like you're wired, to stay here held in time,
Cos nothing seems to change, oh no.
No nothing's gonna change, at all.
I can see it in your face, the hope has gone astray.

But if you hold tight, shadows will be lost in the light.
Oh cos sometimes, fate and your dreams will collide.
So don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me.

Your feet are stuck, no they cannot move,
Don't tell me that they're glued,
Yeh they're far from.
At home, at ease but give sometime to breathe

When nothing seems to change, oh no.
No nothing's gonna change, at all.
I can see it in your face, the hope has gone away.

But if you hold tight, shadows will be lost in the light.
Oh cos sometimes, fate and your dreams will collide.
So don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me.

But everthing will be ok,
I know that it's so easy to say,
But the pain inside will fade,
Please tell me that you'll stay.

If we hold tight, shadows will be lost in the light.
Oh cos sometimes, fate and your dreams can collide.
So don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me,
Don't walk away from me.

When all that you've tried, leaves nothing but holes inside.

R.I.P Steve Jobs

"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life,"

"Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure -- these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important."

- Steve Jobs

The most shocking news to the world this morning is the demise of the co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs. In mid-2004, Jobs announced to his employees that he had been diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his pancreas. The prognosis for pancreatic cancer is usually very poor; Jobs, however, stated that he had a rare, far less aggressive type known as islet cell neuroendocrine tumor. After initially resisting the idea of conventional medical intervention and embarking on a special diet to thwart the disease, Jobs underwent a pancreaticoduodenectomy (or "Whipple procedure") in July 2004 that appeared to successfully remove the tumor. Jobs apparently did not require nor receive chemotherapy or radiation therapy (source: wikipedia)

From the reading I did this morning, I can only make one conclusion. Steve Jobs never wanted the whole world to know that he is sick. He never wants sympathy. Instead, he fought hard and always be positive about his health condition. At one of the media event he attended, he ended his keynote address with "110/70" referring to his blood pressure, stating that he would not address any further questions about his health condition.

He reminds me so much of my late father-in-law. Similar characteristics, similar class of acts and similar success stories. Arwah abah may not invented iPhone (he used one actually :), but Abah had his own fair shares of great stories. Recently, KLIFF 2011 Award has listed abah as one of the recipients, "The Most Outstanding Performance in Islamic Finance", Mama and Rizhan accepted the award. Abah did tremendous great work in Islamic Finance, creating Malaysia as the biggest hub for Islamic Finance, allowing banks to grow in Islamic industries and many more that I cant even begin to list down.

My heart goes to his family members. May they gather the strength to pursue life with his absence and always be strong.

RIP Steve Jobs

Life, Marriage and challenges...

"Finding the right man for marriage is the second challenge. The first challenge is to be the right woman that a right man wants to marry."

(Taken from A Girl's Say)

15 days to go...

and yah I am not going to talk about my wedding preparation here. Instead it feels right to talk about the preparation to enter marriage.

booTak asked me a question yesterday, "are you ready to get married?"

You might wonder what was my reaction towards that? Some might think that I might throw a fighting scream

"hey, apa soalan ni?

u ingat I tak ready ke?

Kenapa awak fikir macam ni?

This is just not fair to ask me this now"


I didnt...

The first 4 awkward seconds I was just there, keeping it silent and trying to find the right answer only to realise there is no right answer to this question. Your answer wasnt supposed to please your other half, instead the answer should please you and makes you feel comfortable with it.

My answer "Yes, I am ready"

I know in my heart that I am ready for this.

Often we notice nowadays couples who wants to get married are focusing their energy to get the perfect wedding. What we should be focusing actually is to the journey afterwards, the marriage itself. We have to set a goal, an objective so we know the hurdle that we have to go through in the preparation is actually nothing. Greater things awaits us the moment he finally say his lafaz, accepting his responsibility to be the husband and for you to be his wife.

Ive seen one lavish and super cool wedding, and the couple divorced 6 months later. My first reaction was "aiyak, wasted only money spent on the wedding". I wasnt on the right track as well, that moment I should be thinking how frustrating that such a holly ikatan can be broken after only 6 months.

I realise marriage takes even greater effort and challenges than the wedding itself...and I am ready for that. I've found the right man (insyaAllah), now I just have to be the right woman to be with my right man....

Friends Forever

Do you ever has somebody that fits this...

undeniably trustworthy,
incredibly supportive and understanding
fantastic and fabulous
an incredible and wonderful person

That is a Super Friend award

I know I have one...
But she is flying off to UK tonight to pursue her dreams in modeling *NOT*
Pursuing her Masters actually (I hate scholarship)

I've met Annette my entire life. She has been there with me for 10 years already. First met her during our early year in uniten and we have been best friends ever since. I am annette and annette is me. Literaly....

Even her family is mine already, vice versa.

Even after we graduated we were still glued to each other. We worked at the same place, we stayed in the same house and spend weekends together until we got sick of each others and we decided yah we should get a boyfriend.

But even when the both of us are with someone in our life, that never change the fact that we are still best friends. After I had that traumatic experience in uni when I've realised I should never trust girls, I can still trust her, in fact she was the only one whom I put my trust that moment.

Today she is leaving me, leaving us to pursue her dream and some white dudes. I am so glad she has this opportunity to shine and I am glad she no longer has to work on weekends and sometimes at night.

Babe, if you are reading this, please know that you will always have my heart, my thoughts and my sincere prayer for your happiness and success in the English Land. You have been the best person/friend in my life and I thank you for that. It is sad not to have you around during my big day but I know somehow you are hurt too. The thoughts of not having you around to listen to all my crap is unbearable, but this is all for the best and I wish you the best of luck in your life.

Hit on some white dudes for me if you can (as I can no longer do that pfffttt), pls pls pls do travel, and live life to the fullest. Dont be such a nerd (yah, sitting at the front seat of a class is considered nerd) and pls dont listen to linkin park song's while studying; your roommate may hate you for that. Dont play video games in uni (Return of Castle Wolfenstein whatnot is so not cool) and during your free time dont do jigsaw puzzle in your room. Roomies may think you are weird. Hehhehe *peace*. Kick ass in your study okay, I know you will (cough *nerd* cough) and please do remember me. :)

What else...
Hurm yah!
Please dont bring puncher from malaysia and buy your stationaries at Leeds!

I love you babe...
Thank you for being my best friend

I can only do these kind of pose with her...
