New Year

“2011, you’re gonna be beautiful… because I’m gonna make you so!”

That was my Facebook status last year and I think I nailed it. Everything about 2011 was beyond wonderful. Everything.

The year I got one step closer to Forever with the love of my life, the year Kak Lis gave birth to a beautiful baby, the year I challenged myself doing part-time studies, the year I witnessed 5 of my lovely girlfriends tie the knot ..the list goes on and on.

I cannot be any happier leaving 2011 with a new status. 2012, you are going to be as equally filled with fond memories, if not more. I know it’s gonna be a pretty exciting year for me.

Insya’Allah, everything will be perfect to me in 2012. New beginnings await. 🙂

Wish I May, Wish I Might

1) Have my family under one roof. In fact, this has been my biggest dream since young. With my marriage approaching, it’d mean Kak Lis will have to move out in time to come. Still sad over it, even though I know it’s inevitable. The next best thing would be someone in the same flat wanting to sell their house to us. But it’s okay! Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

2) Be less lazy and reduce my level of procrastination. Towards everything, but most importantly, cleaning my room. Ibu always shakes her head and claims that she can’t see the walls in my room (what an exaggeration, the floors maybe, but definitely not walls haha) but yes, I will put in more effort.

Speaking of which, I need to buy a needle for my sewing machine soon. I was in the midst of sewing Elhan’s baju kurung when the needle broke. Very anticlimax because I wanted him to wear it during his cukur rambut ceremony.

I definitely have more but can’t think of the rest at the moment. My mind’s not in the mood to think perhaps ‘cos my leave has already started! Woohoo. Two awesome weeks dedicated to me and my loved ones. Love!

December oh December, please continue to be a brilliant month. 😀

Ho Ho Holiday

11 more days to the end of the year, but it feels as though Sadiq and I just welcomed 2011 by playing with sparklers at East Coast. I still remember how I was half mad at him for cutting short my birthday trip and not wanting to spend NYE overseas, which I thought could have been more fun. He loves Singapore just too much, I reckon. :p

Anyway! I hope this trend of celebrating my birthday overseas continues for as long as possible. Sadiq’s sweet enough to take a short break from work (in case you didn’t know, my fiancé is passionate about his job that he might just work 24/7 if given the opportunity) so this upcoming trip is specially catered to pamper us with spa treatments and whatnot. Most importantly, it’s also to pamper ..me!

2011 was magnificent, just the way I envisioned it to be. 2012 is going to be just as awesome, if not more. Simply perfect! 😀

Two Weeks And One Day

My birthday is in 15 days’ time. Whee! Yes yes, I know I’m a very ‘late’ baby. While people are happily gearing up for the new year, I am excitedly looking forward to the day I turn a year older (and hopefully, wiser).

5 working days away from my splendid leave too; can you imagine the awesome free time that I’ll have to myself!? So darn happy about it. Plus I’ve no school and whatnot so it’ll be perfect.

I love December! 😀

Devotion

Seeing my girlfriends tie the knot one by one the past few weeks makes me happy. Inevitably, I keep thinking about how mine’s gonna be like. Mentel mode alert.

Feels like yesterday that we just got engaged and soon, it’s going to be 9 months to our wedding, insya’Allah. So far, everything’s been wonderful. I don’t know what I have done to deserve someone like Sadiq really. It’s amazing how he makes time for me despite his busy work schedule. Seeing him work hard for the sake of our future is simply heartwarming… 🙂

I still remember our conversation 4 years ago, probably the first about our future. Where things were still grey, our relationship only a few months old and we were probably even too young to think about the unknown.

Look at where we are right now, patience is indeed a virtue…

Observe

“The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And, because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change until we notice how our failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds.”

Let’s open our eyes more, listen more and talk less…
