Tenchuuu for another handbag, betterhalf.  Its never enuf, for any woman huhu 😛

Made my day !

Lombok, bawalah daku pergi….. :)

Salam beautiful readers 🙂

Rindu…#BicaraGili

Bawalah daku pergi…

Kepada hari itu yang masih pagi..

Kepada bayu sepoi dan yang biru

Sayu terharu dan menjadi Aku…

**************************************************

My long due holidays with bee-ef-ef finally took us to Lombok, Indonesia last 26- 29 July 2017, Alhamdulillah.

Friends by fate, location by choice as Allah SWT wills it, brought four of us, alongside with our outburst laughter, tremendous fun, lotsa tasty and fresh food and most importanty our Silaturrahim dan ukhwah, InsyaAllah  🙂

It took me several days to digest the fact that one of my wish list is now ticked 🙂 . It has been made possible with the Rezq from Allah SWT,  and my best buddies.  Thank you Sherry, Ner & Tini.  You guys are the best!

#betterhalfizinkan 😛

Where do I begin?  Perhaps, with the beautiful sights in Lombok ….

#TakKenalMakaTakChenta

#The Benang Kelambu Waterfall/Gili Trawangan Beach/Kuta Lombok Beach

#kenacollagesebabgambarbanyaksangat

#The Rinjani Mountain from the plane/Pantai Setangi &Villa Hantu/Ombak Sunset Gili Trawangan/Benang Kelambu Waterfall

My Lombok travel buddies in random #loveyouguys

another, US 🙂

and, US hehe

I watched in tears (hehe) the fascinating view of the beautiful Sunrise – rising shyly through the Rinjani mountains and Gili Trawangan beach at 6.18 am local time that beautiful sunny morning ….. #love #oneofmybestmoment

Allahuakbar !  Allah Al Basit, Al Azim!!

We are the happy souls.  Alhamdulillah…

#melompatlebihtinggi 😛

Note – I skipped the boat stories but I did it 🙂   A fifteen the most minutes ride from the land to the Island.  *Gili means ‘Island’ –  So, thats why its called Gili Trawangan.

************************************

Nonetheless, my Sunset story was not a success this time, as it was rather a gloomy day at the Ombak Sunset that day @ Thursday, 27 July 2017.  Rezeki di lain kali, InsyaAllah.

Another beautiful shots of Us at @ Gili Trawangan waiting for the sun to go down…

And they say, kalau sampai ke Lombok dan tidak berbuai di Ombak Sunset, mana bisakkkkk… hehe.  so here goes !

#buailajulajuakunakkawenanakrajasingapura hehe

I skipped the fresh fishes/food stories as well as all knew how tasty and fresh the fishes are at par with its reviews 🙂 #musttryikanbaronang yeahh

Kami had dinner at the famous Pasar Malam in Gili Trawangan with mostly orang putihs hehe.

#################

I also skipped the Pearls shopping as another known attractions.  The quality pearls are from the South Sea.  I guess its a MUST if you arrive Lombok 🙂

Got few myself, huhu.

******************************

The Benang Kelambu Waterfall stories is another personal milestone 🙂

#I rode motorbike # I hiked # I paved into the cold water! huhu #toughWeiiii

Us, collaged.

There are actually few signature waterfalls in Lombok – The Tiu Teja, Tiu Umbak to name a few.  But Sherry chose this Benang Kelambu for me which is equally an amazing adventure #sheknowsmetoowell huhu

Thanks babe! #love

*************************

A week had passed now since we voyaged, but we still talked and laughed intensely everytime we chatted or spoke about our recent Lombok adventure.

I pen down here for now, InsyaAllah ada rezeki bertemu dan bertamu lagi.  But before that, I will leave you with some favorite photos in my S8 yeah 🙂

 

#currentfavouritedrink hehe

Oh least but never least, on our last day, Herman, the guide brought us briefly to another Lombok-must-visit – the Kuta Beach Lombok in Bukit Merese.

Some happy pics of US…

#BicaraGili 2

Akan aku dakap kenangan itu …

Lalu berlalu melangkah pergi

Membawa  rinduku kian berat..

Kapan bila sekali lagi berjabat ?  😦  #love

Assalamualaikum… 🙂

Syaza Irdina is 14 :)

Another July born of ours.  Alhamdulillah.

July celebrates Razin Hafizi, Betterhalf and today,  our fourth ace, Syaza Irdina a.k.a Kak Chik (Now she wants to be called Kak Teh pulokkk… oh anak 😛 )

Syaza turns fourteen today 🙂  all grown up dah anak Ibu 🙂

Kalau ikut family tree kami yang kecik, Syaza is the youngest girl in our family. Dan dia amat kuat membebel (macam Ibu la tew) hehe,  she is very hardworking too.  When she set her heart to something, she wants to quickly get it done.  Very focus with her end results.

She cares a lot too.  For her sibs and friends, no doubt about that.   She may be not ‘good’ at showing it, but her actions speak wayy louder than her words..

***********************************

Dear Ja,

You have it all Sayang.   All the good qualities instilled in you, to be successful. Ayah Ibu cuma mendoakan, as always.  InsyaAllah you will be loved, happy and successful in this dunia and hereafter, InsyaAllah !

Our sweet birthday girl, Syaza Irdina 🙂

Happy 14th Birthday Kak Teh 🙂

Let only sky to be your limit tau !

Hope you love your birthday present yeah.  #vanshoes

Happy Birthday again, kesayangan Ibu!

 

Better half celebrates another birthday, Alhamdullilah.

I was back briefly to Kelantan last week visiting our dearest BIL (who ever since our ayah’s passing, has been our source for strength and reference for advice and everything else for all it matters….).  Alhamdulillah, berkat doa dan ukhwah anakanda-anakanda beliau dan ahli keluarga kami yang MasyaAllah ramainya, sahabat-sahabat kami semua yang datang menziarah dan mengirim doa dan ucapan selamat) – Allah SWT,  The Most Merciful has granted him recovery and better health, Syukur Alhamdulillah sangat!

**************************************************************

And that night at my sister’s place, ai membelek-lah album gambar-gambar lama that my sister kept nicely in her bedroom, and  I found this !! .. 🙂

Omaigaddd oh em ji  …. hensemnyaaaaaa hihi  😛

To this man, who I had fallen in love with long long long time and still falling in love everyday – despite all the barricades that we shared, and as I chose the good times over bad, everytime! – I wish you  the HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY EVERRRRR Sayang !!!

#hensemsangatkenajugapost  😛

You are always the better half and keeping me sane, so please count more birthdays with me #doainmysolatselalu…!

Hope you like the present I get you 🙂

Ai belanja you makan ek, when you are back home!  We miss you and have a wonderful day today, Mr bithdayboy #loveblinkblink !

Our Malik Firdaus

Spot my girl Sarah?  Behind her in Green kurta, is Malik Firdaus, our nephew.  He is one of my many anak-anak fruits that is always with us.

He was back briefly for Raya and flew again on third day of Raya.  Few days after he landed, we kidnapped him for Sushi for berbuka puasa.  *Daus in stripe yellow shirt in below photo.

Ibu dedicated this post to you with doa that Allah SWT is always looking after you and keeping you safe and healthy.

You are such a sweet and polite boy.  And its always happy to be around you or having you around.

You are so ahead of most of us in the photo, being  only 15 and almost 10,000 km away from home.  Venturing the Turk land in becoming that someone that all of us dream of!

Stay safe Daus.  We see you around very soon!

Aidil Fitri 2017, our way.

Salam #withlove.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri 2017 Semua!  Maaf Zahir Batin.  Since today dah Aidil Fitri, hari ke 9 – hope you guys had a good and happy raya with your families and loved ones.  Afterall that is what celebration is all about – being with the ones that you love and make you happy 🙂

Layan gambar Hani, betterhalf dan anak-anak dulu la ya 🙂

My five children – Along, Abang Ngah, Kak Lang, Kak Chik and Busu 🙂 .. oh and the cat 😛

The Juniors, again.

My two sons, dunia akhirat, Alhamdulillah 🙂

Cerita-cerita Raya bakal menyusul, InsyaAllah.  Gi beraya dulu ya semua! #teamrayakl

 

Pak Andak & Mak Andak

The two elderly in the photo are Pak Andak and his wife, Mak Andak. Pak Andak is the elder brother to my arwah MIL.

During last 14th June, his sons brought him to KL (he lives in Singapore BTW), to fulfill his wish to visit his arwah sister and BIL’s graves (that would be my FIL and MIL)..

It has been years that we seen him last.  His health is not superb anymore nowadays.  He is slowly starts to forget things that happened around him.  He repeats himself and kept on asking questions that happened so long ago in our history but seemingly somehow fresh in his mind.

It breaks my heart to see him like that…  You see, when I got married 24 years ago to this man (half Singaporean), Pak Andak was one of the first many relatives who happily welcomed me to this new family.  He would travel down on almost all my anak-anak kenduri cukul jambul and on other occasions too.  He would often visit during raya and when we came down to Singapore to visit, it is a MUST to stop at his Yishun place to just eat his famous curry and roti prata.

He laughs a lot.  Not to mention jokes.  He is always happy and jovial.  Always cracking some stories and jokes.

…..But seeing him today – hardly recalling all those occasions that I mentioned above and even having a tough time remembering me and the kids – it just hit me deep 😦   , and he kept on saying that he did not know that my MIL and FIL had passed away…

Oh Pak Andak…   We missed the old you 😦  and your beautiful citation of surah-surah Al Quran…

You – who always teasing me and telling me stuff dulu.

Allah the Al-Mighty is reminding us something here…   – That nothing is permanent here in this duniya.  All will leave us including our own mind.  Sigh…

We wish you good health and long live, Pak Andak !  Only Him knows  things that we don’t…

Hanging tough Pak Andak, InsyaAllah we see you Raya yeah?.
