When my husband asked..

whether I want a Canon or Nikon DSLR for my birthday yesterday, I was so flattered.. nope.. my heart was jumping all over the place first, and then only I flattered.

I didn’t realized he took my comment the other day quite seriously. I did mention of buying a new camera, just for my own satisfaction in capturing scenes and moments.

But I just said, no. “That’s okay. Don’t think it’s a necessity for now”.

Kasihan pada suami. He has already sacrificed a lot, especially his salary. I know it’s part of his duty as a husband, to provide for his family. Although I think he can afford to buy the camera for me, but never mind. That money is better spend for something more meaningful.. and who knows we might need that money for something really important some day. He has a lot to buy for himself after all.

And as if I can’t afford to buy one for myself. Pfftt!!.. But for the same reason as above, I’m quite reluctant. To be honest, I have one Kenwood mixer in my Lazada cart, waiting to be cashed out. Still thinking should I or should I not. It’s already on sale. But again, it’s just a luxury that can wait. After all, I’m not baking for a living.

I have to say, before I started working, I had this thought that when I start to have my own money, I can buy whatever I can. But apparently, it is not that simple (unless you get 0.5M for your salary per month). You will think more about your loved ones, your responsibility, your future.. everything! It’s not that bad though. It’s something that makes you become more mature, and more responsible.

So, few things to highlight today:

  1. Bertimbangrasalah sesama suami isteri.
  2. Suami saya romantik dengan caranya yang tersendiri 😉
  3. Berjimat cermat selagi ada. (chewah!)

Anyway, I’m officially 34 years old yesterday. 6 more years before I hit that 40 mark, the age that could determine where you’re heading in life.. insyaAllah if Allah permits me to live that long.


3 years of fun, 3 tahun penuh kesyukuran

19 Oct 2010, cold Tuesday morning.

Dzul had just parked the car. We came out of the car and together we walked to the bus stop to take the free bus service to QMC. While walking, I reached out my hand to him.. nak bersalam.. and at once we said

“Happy Anniversary!”😀


Alhamdulillah.. it’s been 3 years now.. since the day we tied the knot, made a vow to become each others’ companion for life. 3 years of fun & happiness, 3 years of mostly ups than downs.. Alhamdulillah.. syukur, syukur..

I truly believe that we both are not the perfect people in this world.. but I’m glad we, with Allah’s permission, complement each other.

The journey of this relationship has been so wonderful so far, and I could only pray to Allah to make it lasts forever. To make it lasts as Ibu & Ayah’s, Bapak & Mama’s..

There were times when we stumbled, but that’s what life is, and we just moved on and learnt from it.

In the first year of us being husband and wife, I had a miscarriage. Despair we were, but Allah The Beknoweth.Alhamdulillah. Allah had given us more time together, just the two of us to know each other better.. to prepare ourselves to become better parents, to equip ourselves with the knowledge.. as well as more time to honeymoon 😉 Allahu akbar!!

We were blessed with our first child in our second year of marriage. Hamdan lillah.. a beautiful girl named Nur Rayyann. MasyaAllah.. Our highest gratitude unto Him for this blessing. Mungkin berkat doa Ibu waktu tunaikan haji juga. Anyway, Allah had tested us once again when we had to be separated from Rayyann for few months. But there’s always a hikmah in every event of our lives.

When I compared how I was before I got married and how I am now, I could not be more thankful that I’m blessed with a married life, blessed with the experience of motherhood, blessed with a wonderful family. I’m glad to say that this marriage has given me a peace of mind.

وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦۤ أَنۡ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنۡ أَنفُسِكُمۡ أَزۡوَٲجً۬ا لِّتَسۡكُنُوٓاْ إِلَيۡهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيۡنَڪُم مَّوَدَّةً۬ وَرَحۡمَةً‌ۚ إِنَّ فِى ذَٲلِكَ لَأَيَـٰتٍ۬ لِّقَوۡمٍ۬ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquillity with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts); verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. (21)


Guess I could just go on and on about how I blessed I am, and I still don’t think it would be enough for what I’ve had up to this day.

Anyway, for my beloved husband..

I thank Allah that I found you. I thank Allah that you’re my husband, my companion, my soulmate, my bestest friend, my shoulder to cry on, my smile when I’m happy.. you bring out the best in me, you lift me up when I’m down.. you’re everything to me. MasyaAllah.. 🙂 Let us be like Rasulullah s.a.w and Aisyah r.a… as understanding as them, as faithful as them, as romantic as them. InsyaAllah..

(coincidentally, this is my 100th post.. after years.. hehe..)
