Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!


Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Innocent Love

Today,
I'm laughing the clouds away,
I hear what the flowers say,
And drink every drop of rain,
And I see,
Places that I have been,
In ways that I've never seen,
My side of the grass is green,
Ooh I can't believe that it's so simple,
It feels so natural to me,

If this is love,
Then love is easy,
It's the easiest thing to do,
If this is love,
Then love completes me,
Cause it feels like I've been missing you,
A simple equation,
With no complications,
To leave you confused,
If this is love, love, love,
Hmm it's the easiest thing to do...
("Love is Easy" by McFly)


Assalamualaikum,

As a young girl, I find it amusing when Mak and her sisters (my aunts) would giggle like high school teenagers over their childhood love stories. It is always with the cousin or playmate they know all their life. When I started to have favorite cousins or playmate, I assume that's how they felt. But then when I begin to see the world through more serious lenses, what was…

Ayah dan Ibu...

Assalamualaikum,
Hari ni aku menangis menonton video ini.


Video tersebut berobjektif memperkenalkan MedicMesir, but I just can't help to read between the lines. And came the tears.
Dalam menjadi manusia, wujud masa-masa jahil di mana aku berasa malu dengan perkaitan yang ada dalam kehidupan aku. Aku pernah malu mempunyai ibu bapa dan keluarga yang menjadi diri mereka dan berada di tahap yang mampu mereka capai. Aku berasa tidak setaraf. Aku berasa 'dirahmati' dengan kepintaran dan kebolehan di tahap yang berbeza.
Dan hari aku tersedar dari kejahilan tersebut adalah hari yang paling memalukan dalam hidup aku. Itu adalah hari aku paling kecewa dengan diri sendiri. Hari aku yang paling bodoh. Hina sungguh diri aku sebagai seorang anak yang malu terhadap ibu bapa dan keluarga sendiri.
Mana ada ibu bapa yang tidak berkorban dan tidak buat habis baik untuk anak-anak mereka. Semua yang bernama ibu bapa, semua yang keadaan mindanya berada di tahap keibu bapaan, akan buat habis baik. Se…

Umar

Assalamualaikum, Alhamdulillah. Namanya Muhammad Umar Hidayat bin Tun Hafidzul Hakim. Lahir lewat petang Ahad 12 Mei 2013, Hari Ibu. Kata adik ipar dalam SMS pada malamnya: "Mak Long dah tau ke baby dah lahir? Kali ni betul-betul Muhammad". Hahaha. Maklumlah, masa Sumayyah sudah salah sangka. Sampaikan Moochi tak mesra dengan Mak Long akibat dipanggil 'Muhammad' ketika dalam kandungan.
Umar
"Panggil Umar. Sorry Haffizzatul Aini Aton :)" Begitu tag adikku pagi seterusnya, sempena memperkenalkan Umar di Facebook.
Umar. I reserve this one name for my son. "Dah agak dah. No problem. Aku tetap akan namakan anak aku Umar :p" balas aku. Kecewa? Not to that extend. Memang kami berdua suka kepada Saidina Umar R.A. Dan memang telah disebut-sebut hajatnya menamakan (andai anak lelaki) Umar. My Umar will be next!
"Papa Kimi dah ambil nama anak Mak Long. Jadi Umar ni Mak Long yang punya", kataku berseloroh dengan Hakimi. Naif Hakimi menjawab: "Kimi takta…

Final Bouquet

Assalamualaikum,
Delayed post; original posting date: 15 -21 April 2013
In "The Wedding Planner" Mary (J.Lo) said that if you can't wed, you planned them. As for me, if I am not the bride, I can always be the bridesmaid. True enough, in 3 years I have been a bridesmaid for 7 times. 27 Dressess much? Hahaha. I find myself unable to say no to the brides and I do jokes about being a bridesmaid for 27 times; but I never thought it could reach this integer.
Thus, before another 20 -- On a bright sunny 13th of April, wearing a beautiful peplum dress, surrounded by family and friends, on a day where everybody is happy, with the scent of fresh flowers floating in the air, while I walked the 7th bride to the her dais -- this bridesmaid decide that it is time to retire. I 'catch' my final bouquet. I actually love the wedding songs!
Why now? Let's see... Firstly, because I believe I have walked every possible bride on their wedding day. There shouldn't be any bride who …

Touchdown!

Assalamualaikum,
Suddenly all spinning wheels come to a halt. At least for now. The hardest part has ended. Phew. Cue in Iron Man Three's "Battle Finale"! Usain Bolt poses! Winning dance! Princess-in-hanbok pose, breathe properly and smile sweetly... "Alhamdulillah, we made it alive".
In my tired mind, that was how the moment celebrated yesterday. The last part doesn’t really fit the theme song, the princess-in-hanbok. I just don't care. Hahaha.
We're only half way through everything. But we sure have covered the 20-80 part. Like I said, the hardest part has ended. I believe that if we can survive that part, we can survive the whole deal.

Winning Personality
Somehow, in between sleepless nights, weird dreams, extended working hours and excessive tasks, I feel like my newly altered personality can't win …

Busy Me

Assalamualaikum,
19:00, at office. I am super busy. After this I can’t say I want to be a writer anymore - I surprise myself with this statement! Writing is super fun when I am doing it for my own self. It is super not fun when I am doing it to meet other people’s deadline. Pffttt. Oh I am not inspired to write, but picture speaks. Enjoy.

Biasa Yang Luar Biasa

Sebenarnya kita tak perlukan seseorang yang sempurna atau luar biasa di samping kita... Cukup sekadar seseorang yang biasa-biasa; yang menjadikan dunia luar biasa dengan kebaikan dalam dirinya. Yes, I truly believe that. Kita manusia mempunyai pelbagai permintaan; kemahuan. We always have something to add to the ever growing list. Hakikatnya apa yang kita benar-benar mahu pada akhirnya adalah apa yang kita perlu. Jangan buang masa mengejar kemahuan. Cukuplah apa yang kita perlu.

Love is a Secret

“To somebody, love is like medals or trophies, the result of a victory to boast of. To somebody, love is the process of waiting endlessly on for the other person, which turns into true feeling. To that woman, love is a secret she cannot allow to be exposed, not even to herself.” - Go Dok Mi; Flower Boys Next Door

Twenty Nine: Older and Wiser

Assalamualaikum,
Alhamdulillah. It is a week after my 29th birthday. Syukur kepada Allah. Tiada Tuhan yang disembah melainkan Allah dan Muhammad SAW adalah pesuruh Allah. Doaku, seperti yang diriwayatkan oleh al-Tabarani yang telah diajarkan oleh Rasulullah kepada seorang lelaki: "Ya Allah, aku memohon daripadaMU jiwa yang tenang, beriman dengan pertemuan denganMU, redha dengan ketentuanMU dan berasa cukup dengan pemberianMU". Semoga setiap nafas yang tersisa adalah nafas yang mentauhidkan Allah; sehingga hujung nyawa... Amiin Ya Rabb, Amiin Ya Rabb, Amiin Ya Rabb.

This is my 29th birthday. I know each birthday is special, but birthdays are not supposed to be remembered only by celebration, wishes and cake. So to make a difference, I had a birthday mission. Alhamdulillah, the mission was successfully accomplished! It was nothing big, but was very satisfying. I didn't get normal bi…

13 Days to 29!

Assalamualaikum,
1 Januari 2013. Satu lagi tahun bermula mengikut kalendar masihi. Masih baru, tapi ini bukan tahun pertama aku tidak menyambut tahun baru masihi. Jadi tiada sambutan, tiada azam. Semua itu telah dinekadkan 1 Muharram yang lalu. Dalam fikiran cuma ada dua perkara. Pertamanya, terlupa nak beli planner tahun 2013. Bukanlah penting memandangkan aku bukanlah manusia yang sibuk sangat. Cuma dah jadi kebiasaan untuk ada planner. Kedua, usia akan beranjak dalam tempoh 13 hari. Berkira-kira untuk buat kek hari lahir sendiri untuk usia yang ke-29… Tapi menurut pengalaman, macam takkan menjadi macam kek Ben10 tahun lepas. Hahaha *wink* Kepada yang memerlukan satu titik permulaan, hari ini salah satu darinya. Garisan adalah titik-titik yang bersambung - mulakan sesuatu yang baik, bina garisan yang membawa ke arah positif dan semestinya garisan yang membawa makna yang dapat dikongsikan bersama.
Nota: Happy birthday to Achik; my favorite aunty! XOXO~
Wassalam.
