Lesson beyond classroom

(This entry was meant to be posted months ago.)

Hehe, I borrowed the slogan of Genius Aulad.

Learning should not be restricted to only inside a classroom. It can happen anywhere – at your home, in the garden, in a shopping mall (if you’re a shopaholic who spend most of the time in a shopping mall, eheh!).. even in the toilet!!

Rayyann’s lesson at our backyard 🙂

One fine evening in early of May 2011, while Dzul was happily snoozing in the bed.. hehe..

"What do I need to do now.. hmm.."

She still needed to be wrapped out as it was slightly cold. It wasn’t fully summer yet. That’s why..

Ciao!

Waktu ini, saya mencoret dari Itali.

Menghadiri kongres selama 5 hari di Florence. 5 hari merantau sendirian. 5 hari menimba ilmu dan pengalaman. 5 hari juga menyimpan rindu pada sang suami dan sang anak.

Barangkali hal berjauhan ni perkara biasa bagi sesetengah orang. Tapi saya tak biasa.

Apapun, bukan hal itu yang saya nak tekankan dalam coretan kali ini. Hari ini, sekadar nak bercerita tentang perjalanan ke Florence tempoh hari (14 Julai).

Di Frankfurt

Bertolak dari Birmingham, transit di Frankfurt selama 3 1/2 jam mengikut jadual. Pertama kali menjejakkan kaki di Jerman. Airportnya sibuk juga. Barangkali sebab waktu siang pun. Terfikir untuk solat di situ sementara waktu terluang banyak, instead of jamak taakhir. Anggarannya akan terjumpa ‘multifaith prayer room’ seperti di airport UK. Paling teruk, solat di celah yang sedikit sunyi. Tetapi, alhamdulillah, Allah ketemukan dengan papan tanda ‘Muslim prayer room’.

Alhamdulillah, setinggi-tinggi syukur. Musolla agak selesa, walaupun ruang untuk wanita kecil, tetapi untuk lelaki lebih kurang sebesar musolla di Portland Building di UoN. Ada ruang wuduk untuk wanita di situ. Maka tak perlu saya menapak ke tandas untuk mengangkat hadas kecil.

Quran dengan terjemahan pelbagai bahasa turut disediakan

When the sun is shining bright…

You know we hardly get sunshine in this country, regardless of season. And what’s more in the winter.
So, on Saturday 12 February, once we knew that they forecasted the weather would be sunny, we grabbed the chance to bathe ourselves with the sunshine. We were in dire need to topping up the vitamin D, so that the calcium digested from the food we consumed could be absorb optimum-ly (is there such word?)

Oh, I forgot to mention earlier, we went to Attenborough Nature Reserve near Beeston. It was the second time for both Dzul & I, and the first for Rayyann.

Bila orang jawa buat nasi kerabu ;)

Dah lama tak buat entry tentang makanan 😉

Alhamdulillah, hari Isnin baru2 ni melepaskan keinginan nak makan nasi kerabu. Perancangan awalnya nak masak waktu weekend, tapi Allah itu kan Maha Berkuasa.. dah kami sekeluarga jatuh sakit, terpaksala ditangguhkan. Dan perancangan Allah tu memang yang sebaik2nya. Menu hujung minggu jadi menu istimewa sempena anniversary 🙂 Continue reading

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)

Ar-Ruum: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..)

Just for you.. on your birthday

My dearest Sayang…

Happy birthday, Sayang!

On this day, I pray to Allah..

May He bless you with His Kindness and Generosity

From my warmest heart, these wishes are for you..

Gempur Wira!

Baru2 ni kawan2 Srikandi sibuk memuat naik gambar2 zaman sekolah.. terutamanya gambar PKBM(L).. di FB. Bila dah di’tag’, secara tak langsung terjumpa semula kenalan dari EC (or MSAB) yang sama2 digabungkan untuk perbarisan TATU hari kebangsaan 1998 peringkat negeri Johor. This one former EC student, I had known him better than anybody else in his team since we both participated in the sailing program of KLD Tunas Samudera in 1997, together with Azah Bot from my school and another student from EC.
