Our princess, Sarah Kamilia is 16!

As March approaches every year, Ibu will have this headache.

What to get you.  As you grew a year older, Ibu dah ran out of idea dah.

So, usually your lil sister, Syaza will be my eyes and ears – of what you want.

Nonetheless, on top of what your birthday present is, here is a little something that I wrote, coming straight from heart, from Ibu to Sarah.

Dear Sarah,

sarah_2017

Everytime Ibu look at you, I see myself in you.  Seemingly hard as a rock, but truth is, your heart is like the soft jelly 🙂  Tears hardly rolls down your cheek, but sometimes Ibu sees your worry and sadness thru your eyes.

Wellll, mayyy beee Ibu cries a bit more than you do, but deep down I know you have so much love for everyone around you as you worry for almost everyone.  Even a stranger or a cat !

You just love too much.  But that is you.  Being the middle child probably taught you that sharing can be sweet and magical – as love is spread through sharing.

In return, your lil cousins love you the most.  That I am sure.  They bugged you.  They bullied you.  Yet they hugged and kissed you, the most 🙂

Your heart my be small, but Allah in all His Greatness, gives you so much space to love so much and so many, Alhamdulillah.

Dear Sarah,

Ibu once told you that ‘Sarah’ means happiness.  ‘Sarah’ is joy.  And whoever named Sarah, they just love to laugh.  And I think that is very true.  You have the loudest laugh in our home, not too mention your burp (oopsie).

And, even Ibu does not say it often or mocked you when you laughed out loud, but truth is Ibu loves it.  It makes me very happy to see you smiling and laughing away everytime.  I pray for you to have a happy life, always and forever.

Sarah kesayangan Ibu,

You are 16 this year.  You have outgrown my lap dah.  Well, just the lap yeah? Never my heart?  Please always know that in your heart.

You will always be my little Sarah that I love so much.  Who I probably scolded the most (sigh) but who is also always and will stand tall and strong next to me.  For that, Ibu thank you. Xixi!

As today is your birthday, you are off-lah from your routine chores at home hehe 😛

Just go and have fun.  Hope we will find you a present that you truly want for this year, yeah?

So, take care of yourself always, Sayang.  Study hard and smart.  I know in my heart, you will be okay and successful in both this dunia and hereafter, InsyaAllah.

Ya Allah Ar-Rahman,

Today is Sarah’s 16th birthday.  Kasih dan Rahmati lah anakanda kami.  Jadikan dia insan solehah di dunia dan di akhirat.

Amin Amin YRA.

Happy Birthday dear Princess!! and as your birthday present comes bit early, enjoy selfie-ing ya ! 🙂

Happy Birthday Kak Yong! You are officially 11 :)

We sang a birthday song yesterday, a day early to celebrate Kak Yong Damia Qaisarah bt Nasrul Rizal’s birthday (amboi complete hehe).

You actually turns 11 today on March 6, Kak Yong!  Alhamdulillah…

We had such a good time kan? With complete battalion of the dangdut gangs huhu and Mc Donalds could never go wrong for birthday celebrations, I supposed.

Nanti Ibu upload gambar lagi as Kak Sarah updates me.

damia11

Damia Qaisarah who we fondly called Kak Yong is the eldest child to my SIL, Awa.

Damia is like our very own.  She grows up right in front of our very own eyes (me and your beloved Pak Lang).  Every single second of your growing up years…

And Ibu must say this – yes being a child, have still have your tantrums, but you have outgrown your age Sayang.  Being the eldest, you are very responsible and loving, towards your sibs especially.  And helpful too with Mommy, I am sure Mommy and Daddy appreciate it very much.  May be they do not tell you often enough, but trust me, they do!

Ibu am very sure as years passed, you will be the daughter all mothers dream of, InsyaAllah.

Continue to be kind Sayang.  Ibu doakan Kak Yong terus cemerlang dan berjaya dalam hidup Kak Yong.  May Allah Ar Rahim protects you from all evilness in this world and look after you always.

If one day when you are all grown up and successful and stumbled into Ibu’s blog, please always know in your heart that, Ibu loves you very much.  You are like my very own.

Have a good day today Kak Yong ya,  (6 March) being a 11 year old. hehe

Go and have funnnn 🙂 and happy birthday again.

(Note to Kak Sarah – thank you for baking the cake for the Damia).  You are the best.

Happy 15th Birthday Along Adam

Adam is another my anak fruit.  Jarang upload gambar dia rasanya ke sini.

alongadam2017

So here goes, a birthday shout and song to Adam bin Abu Sufian, who arwah Atuk fondly called Adam Saja.  Why?

Well, he is named ‘just’ Adam.  So, Atuk tambah la, ‘saja’ to add more words to his name agaknya.  Atuk was wise 🙂

Al fatihah to Arwah Atuk and Nenek.

And as you turned 15 yesterday, always count your blessings Sayang ya, surrounded by so many love and joy.

Be a good boy ok and study hard.  Ibu loves you.

Hope you had fun!

Girls outing and its Arisya Birthday

arisyabday

12 February is my anak fruit’s birthday.  Arisya Sufiya Abu Sufiyan turns 13.  Alhamdulillah.

I have too many anak-anak fruits from hubs side, Alhamdulillah.  And Arisya is always a sweetheart.  She is very kind and sweet.  Always there, with us.

Arisya also is pursuing her studies in MRSM Pontian in 2017.  It will be hard to see her after this.  So as she was back briefly during the weekend last, Ibu took all the girls to McD.

Girls outing katanya… hehe 🙂

To Arisya, happy birthday sayang.  Ibu doa kan Sya pandai menjaga diri dan cerita selalu.

Terus suksess di sekolah baru ya. InsyaAllah Allah SWT will take care of you always.

My eldest son is 19, Alhamdulillah !

11 November 2016.  You are 19 this year Abang Ngah, Alhamdulillah.  Everyday both Ayah and Ibu wake up thanking Allah The Mighty for giving us you.

Before this entry goes any further, Ayah and Ibu want to wish you Happy Birthday.  Doa kami berdua buat kamu dan adik-beradik kamu tidak pernah di satu waktu solat kami lupakan.  Nama-nama kamu selalu kami perdengarkan agar Allah SWT tidak akan pernah lupa anak-anak kami.  Agar Allah SWT memberikan kamu semua rahmat dah hidayahNya.  Agar dijauhkan dari segala kesusahan dan musibah dunia dan mendapat segala keberkatan di akhirat nanti, InsyaAllahh.

Dan InsyaAllah, Allah SWT terangkan hati kamu menghadapi pelajaran dan kehidupan kamu.  Dan seterusnya menjadi insan yang berguna kepada diri kamu, keluarga kamu, bangsa dan agama mu Sayang.

It is such a wonderful thing to Ibu especially that you are officially 19 now. Everytime Ibu looks at  you, I see my baby boy who came crying to my lap on than wonderful evening of 11 November 1997.  You weighed 3.4 then I thought I was pushing out a lorry hehe.

You have brought so much joy and happiness to my life, sayang.  To Ibu especially and Ayah of course, and all of us in our big family.  Your arwah Nenek Timah adored you till the end of her breath, Subhanallah.

You have a too kind of a heart, that sometimes Ibu has to remind you of boundaries.  Yes kindness will go a long way in your life, but its a cruel world out there sayang – be a kind and a smart man instead ok!

I know now that your adik-adik will be just fine. and kakak too – with you around.

I know you will take care and love them, just as much you love Ibu and Ayah.

So happy birthday again, go and have so much of fun today!

My handsome boy at 19 🙂
