:: Knock knock, Mr. Syawal is on his way! ::

This gonna be my 4th Syawal without abah and mak, sedihnya... When syawal comes, i definitely will reminisce all sweet raya moments when i was with them. "Tay cepat mandi, tolong mak hidang biskut raya...kejap lagi abah pergi sembahyang raya, balik karang kawan2 masjid dia mesti nak terus beraya rumah ni. Tak siap hidang karang, abah awak tu bising..." Then i answered "Awal lagi la mak, ha'ah la mak ek, abah tu pagi raya mesti kepoh, bising sekali...tiap-tiap kali pagi raya mesti nak bising-bising, kenapa arr mak? Orang relax arr..." Mak answered with her hand busy stiring the rendang "Dah perangai abah awak memang begitu tiap pagi raya kalau kita lambat hidang, cuba semua dah hidang, tersengih-sengih sampai ke telinga dia" And now, i do miss abah punya bising-bising tu...really miss his smiley face..really miss all of it. Then really miss my mak's instruction early raya morning. Ishh.. my tears streaked my face already...

A must have menu during first raya when i was with them :

1. Nasi Hujan Panas
2. Ayam Masak Merah
3. Rendang Daging
4. Lemang

Type of kuih which my mak always prepared during raya :

1. Kuih gunting
2. Kuih siput
3. Maruku

I try not to drool on it, but it is something impossible to do so. Everytime  when i think of it, sure terliur dan sedih. Because i won't be able to get the chance anymore. Air tangan mak lain dengan air tangan aku... lain betul rasa (walaupun sedap aku masak tapi tetap tak sama like my mak) Sempat pulak aku puji diri sendiri dalam sedih2!

Evergreen script by mak when she talked about her kuih - "kuih aku jugak yang korang sedap makan, telan... kuih yang korang beli apa ke nama london almond, love chocolate apa entah...bukannya sedap mana. Kuih aku jugak yang korang telan berbalang-balang" 

Mak..apa yang mak cakap tu semuanya betul, now orang rindu gila nak makan kuih2 tradisional mak tu! Kalau buat sendiri tak sama rasa, kalau beli lagi la tak sama rasanya mak... Ya ALLAH Ya Khabir... I miss my mom so much...

Back to abah's story celebrating Syawal, famous quote by him - "Cantik tak tay, baju melayu baru abah? Mesti la cantik...tengok smart je abah pakai" sendiri tanya sendiri jawab ye abah! Terbayang-bayang abah senyum depan cermin dengan baju melayu baru. Ya ALLAH Ya Khabir... I really miss my abah...

And raya without abah and mak, it will never be the same like before. There is always a huge square box of emptiness in my soul and my heart... although i am happy with my family. Hanya ALLAH saja yang tahu. Ok, don't be sad... I don't wanna be sad, but i am sad..because today is my abah's birthday... orang hadiahkan Al Fatihah untuk abah banyak-banyak!

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri
Minal Aidil Wal Fa Izin

Maaf, Zahir dan Batin semua!

:: Please Stay With Me, Mr Happiness ::

~Please stay with me Mr Happiness... and don't go!~

When you see something that breaks your heart, what would you do?

When something snatches your happiness, what would you do?

Are you gonna weep on it for years or you gonna find a way to get back the happiness?

CERTAIN THINGS ARE EASIER SAID THAN DONE. I know it... and it is true right until something unpredictable happened in your life, you are speechless. And all the things you have said before, now you find it so hard to do. The truth is we don't know how terrible the thing is, until it snaps on your face. Ouchh.. it is hurt!

"I'll never break your heart, I'll never make you cry"

If only the words could guarantee all the promises made... I am sure there would be no unhappy chapter in someone's life at all. But like rules are meant to be broken, same goes to promises. Well, sometimes all the promises are not meant to be exactly like what it was nailed in agreement. It's all made by human, which by nature…

:: Am I climbing on the bandwagon? ::

I was sitting in my room with frustrated tears wetting on my cheek. First time feeling like a recluse for a moment in my life. I can't believe that happened. And too bad i can't do anything! I just can't. I was stunned, petrified... just like a stupid stubble over there! I am sorry for letting you through everything alone that time, i am so sorry.. so sorry because i was too scared.
Being in idyllic life for years, i thank you ALLAH for that...Amin. And i do hope i will live in this kinda life for another 100 years (masih adakah aku lagi?). I am saying this when i saw something that totally vice versa. Some people is lucky to have such an idyllic days in life, some may be not. When i am happy, i forgot there is someone unhappy. There is someone who suffered for years just to see the loved ones live the life without turmoil. I started to question myself again and again. Was this sacrifice? Can we call this sacrifice? A noble sacrifice might be? Or is this a person with nobl…

:: When something is unforgiven... ::

.... that is wrong. We forgive and forget... this is right, true. But it's difficult thing to do. I have been thru this situation before. 'You're forgiven!' whereas inside, only He knows what is actually you feel. When something bad happens in our life, it hurts you badly and it leaves big scar inside... and things that hurt you, it's like it stuck in your brain 24/7. How could we call it - it's forgiven! Maybe thru your lips, it's forgiven but how about your heart? Does your mouth and heart braces together?

I am not Canon - delighting you always!

Sometimes i have right to feel hurt. I am kinda person who loves to see people around me happy for what i am doing. Delighting people around me everytime when they are with me. But like i said, I am not Canon. I treat people around me the best i could and until i almost forgot something... : Sometimes, no matter how best you treat someone, they will never treat you back the same way. I agree. Regardless you best fri…
