Fallen

Assalamualaikum,

How could you not know that you're falling for someone?
How could you not know that you have fallen for someone?
If you didn't know, then how would you fall?

I think it is merely a 'surprise' that you could fall in love with certain someone. Before that you don't know that you could fall in love with that person - given that he or she is totally out from your world - until your path intersect and you fall in love ^____^ Before that you don't know that you could love that someone, no matter what is the background...

Sometime we're too absorbed into our typical network and we believe that we would not fit with others. The truth is, we refuse to step out from our comfort zone and learn about others... And we are too afraid to open up ourselves. How would you know you'll never fit with someone you never talk or spend your time with...? It's almost not fair.

I am following Jung Yonghwa/Park Shinhye's latest drama "You've Fallen for Me" and they just aired the 7th episode. The 7th episode was said to be the turning point where Lee Shin (Yonghwa) realized his feeling for Kyuwon (Shinhye), who is on the contrary, trying to forget her feeling towards Shin. A cute yet typical twisted tale [Not that I have concern at all :p] Shin and Kyuwon is from a very different set of group. Kyuwon was utterly oblivious of Shin's presence despite his popularity and Shin obviously "hates ugly women". Well, Kyuwon is far from being ugly, but she is for sure not a stylish person.

Open your eyes and open your heart. Don't deny what you feel inside. The person you are looking for might be the one least expected. Give chance to other people to get to know you and do not break a heart.

*** I always wonder about it my self... Maybe he is the guy who never look at me or return my smile :p Hahahahaha. Allah is The All Knowing~ ***

Wassalam.

Food and Love

Assalamualaikum,

I don't know what will happen throughout the day, but a slice of cake and good songs (Korean dramas OST :p) makes a better Tuesday morning. As am eating the cake given by my co-worker, I realized that food might be the best way to express love, care, thought and appreciation... and everything nice, of course.

For me cooking is not only an act of mixing up the ingredients and make something edible out of the recipe. Anybody who can read and follow instruction (or lucky enough to get everything right) can make something edible -- I know I can. Hahaha. But foods have soul, won't you agree with me? Don't we all sometime miss or crave for particular food made by specific person...

I remember watching a drama/film on television about a chef. She is a bright and cheerful chef who cooks delicious food. But one day a guy break her heart and make her sad. Ironically, starting from that moment everything she cooked turn out to be disastrous -- as sad as her feeling.

If you cook merely with good ingredients and skill, your food will only be ingredients and skill. But if you cook with love and sincerity, you put up effort to make it works, and you put your attention to give the best, it will make a huge different. It will be more than just food. For example, a simple dish that a mother cook for her family. It might not be the best meal, but to we that's the best, ever. Even Jamie Oliver could not beat it ^____^

Let's cook with love... and please share it with me. Hehehe :)

Wassalam.

Sumayyah

Assalamualaikum,

Her name is Nur Sumayyah Nur Imaan binti Tun Hafidzul Hakim. A mouthful, yes. It seems like she's trying to beat up Nurul Shuhada Nurul Ain :p Hahaha. She added up the joy to our family. We can't promise her wealth, we can't promise her fame, we can't promise that life would be easy on her. But one thing for sure, we would try our best to nourish her with all the love in the world, InshaAllah. May Sumayyah grow up to be the light as the Sumayyah...

When a friend asked whose baby is this, for a split second I wish I can say that she is mine ^_____^

Wassalam.

Sumayyah
by Hijjaz

Dalam diri selembut sutra
Kau miliki iman yang teguh
Kau nyalakan obor agama dirimu bak lentera
Dibelenggu jahiliah kau tempuh dengan berani
Walau pun jasadmu milik tuan
Tetapi hatimu milik Tuhan

Padang pasir menjadi saksi ketabahan keluarga itu
Tika suami dan anak dibaring mengadap mentari
Disuruh memilih iman atau kekufuran
Samar jahiliah atau sinaran akidah

Sabarlah keluarga Yasir
Bagimu syurga disana
Dan kau pun tegar memilih syurga
Walau terpaksa mengorban nyawa
Lalu tombak yang tajam menikam
Jasadmu yang tiada bermaya
Namun iman didadamu sedikit tidak berubah

Darahmu menjadi sumbu pelita iman
Sumayyah kaulah lambang wanita solehah
Tangan yang disangka lembut menghayun buaian
Mengoncang dunia mencipta sejarah

Sumayyah kau dibunuh di dunia sementara
Untuk hidup disyurga yang selama-lamanya
Kaulah wanita terbaik
Sebaik manusia
Namamu tetap menjadi sejarah

Welcome Baby Girl

Assalamualaikum,

Alhamdulillah, my sister in law, Isma, give birth to a lovely baby girl early this morning. I haven't got the chance to meet the princess, yet, but I know she's lovely ^____^ Well, we were expecting a baby boy, because the parents 'feel' like it, but Allah have better plan and He give them another baby girl. Boy or girl, she'll be loved dearly. Ya Allah, semoga bayi ini membesar menjadi Srikandi yang melestarikan agamaMU. Amiin~

I purposely postpone coming back to Penang yesterday, hoping that I can meet the baby. But I guess she really doesn't want to share her birthday with Harper Seven Beckham. So Mak Long needs to wait few days more. Sigh. I feel like driving back to Taiping this evening, but I am not feeling well. Thus, I have decided to get a proper rest and get well by this Friday. There's no point meeting a baby in this condition. I don't want her to get what I am having~

Wassalam.

Ayat

Assalamualaikum,

Teringat satu cerita dari zaman sekolah. Cerita ni diceritakan oleh Ustazah dalam kelas Pendidikan Islam. Timbulnya cerita berkaitan dengan topik hari tersebut - pasal ayat Makiyyah dan ayat Madaniyyah.

Lebih kurang cerita Ustazah:

Ada 2 keluarga yang hidup berjiran. Mula-mulanya baik, tapi kemudiannya ada perselihan faham sikit. Jadi hubungan yang saling baik dah bertukar jadi saling benci. Kemudian keluarga A buat la satu majlis bacaan Yassin, sebagai satu ikhtiar berkenaan hubungan yang tegang tu. Keluarga B ni pun buat jugak majlis bacaan Yassin, untuk counter attack semula bacaan Yassin keluarga A.

Allah Maha Tahu...

Allah jangan luput dari hati.

Rasulullah jangan luput dari hati.

Al-Quran jadikan panduan utama.

Akhlak Rasulullah jadikan idola.

Bila bercermin, cermin semua yang Allah dah pinjamkan untuk dunia fana ni... Tanya diri, sanggup ke pulang ke pangkuan Dia dalam keadaan macam ni~

Wassalam.

Being Grateful

Assalamualaikum,

"Don't be sad. You can't have everything."
Somehow, the phrase I wrote in my 2011 planner seems to speak the other way: "Be happiest for the smallest you have". That is to be grateful.

Times were spent to worry and we all know that most of the thing that falls in the worry list is unnecessary. We worry about family, friends, career, spouse, exs, past and future, life and death, etc. We use the 4W1H to almost everything - finding holes and gap, pointing to what's less and missing. Then, somewhere between the lines we find way to blame ourselves. Maybe we are not good enough, maybe we did not put much effort, and maybe we did it the wrong way, maybe and more maybe.

What is left in an ungrateful being?
An empty soul.

Wassalam.
