17 Happy years and more to come..AMIN

22 August 2010...

Dear darling,
Happy Anniversary and love you loads!

Remember the day when you came over with 100 and more relatives to mum's house. I rasa you came with about 20 cars tailing you.....You all berkumpul di Shell kat Greenwood kan?
That was hari akad nikah kita..I yang tunngu di atas, takut sangat..takut, berdebar-debar and all kinds of feeling ada. I was dead worried kalau I would not be a good wife, not able to give you kiddos and etc etc..tapi I believe that is all in the heart of orang nak bernikah la kan..

Now, hah! kita ada 3 Alhady's yang very manja, smart and inteligent in their own way.

Love you darling

Psst psst : sat na, I nak upload gambag..

When you are too busy, always remember the "The Mayonnaise Jar and Two Cups of Coffee"

I first read about this many years ago, masa kerja di Paramount lagi..rasanya masa tu of of my office buddies sent it to all in the office. Eversince then, I have a copy of it pin to my board and my heart.

When you are too busy, always remember the "The Mayonnaise Jar and Two Cups of Coffee"

When things in your lives seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee.
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous "yes."

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

"Now," said the professor as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

The golf balls are the important things--your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions--and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.

The sand is everything else--the small stuff. "If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

"Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first--the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked.

It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."

Salam to all,

Coq Kodok - 1st Day of Ramadhan..

It was a public holiday for us in Kedah..everybody was home.

Siang hari was mengemas and monitoring the kids buat homework but then tengahari I dah sakit kepala as I did not sleep lepas sahur tadi..
Petang was basically cooking time and the best part of it as Syed was in the kitchen menyakat I as usual.

I buat coq kodok, he commented and ask, "Why is the coq kodok so hitam?
I answered, "alaa....ikut kulit I.." dgn nada malas nak melayan..
Him being his usual self said, " kenpa tak leh ikut kulit I atau kulit anak-anak??"
Panas gak la hati dengar tapi I terus mati kutu and I just let it be..

FYI, the coq kodok hitam tu la yg habis awal! so what's ur menu?

A quick break - HATYAI, SIAM

Me and Hubby darling

It was our 1st experince..kami memang tak pernah ke Hatyai as hubby kata not safe. I'm not sure what change his mind tapi I was very happy.

We went with Zihan and Zarul, a lovely couple whom we met through Princess..anak dia and Aja are classmates and we have been friends eversince then.

Zihan and Zarul

We did not drive up there tapi decided to leave our car at Bukit Kayu HItam and then naik van masuk ke Siam. Imigresen proses was quick and tak ada hassle pun. About 10 minutes je. Org pun tak ramai, mungkin it was Friday and still early..about 9.45am.

The journey was about an hour and by 11am we dah check in ke hotel.. then we went makan kat kedai nama apa ntah, and it was our 1st time naik tut-tut.

The tut-tut nampak macam 'laih' je tapi the 10 of us boleh muat dalam tu..the uncle who drive us there is a Malaysian who have stayed there for more thn 10 years.

Then kami g Robinson and Market. Robinson was like any other shopping complex in Malaysia tapi the MARKET was the best..

Lepas tu, we the adults g urut gila and dead chep. RM25 for one hour foot massage.

Malam g Shop lagi depan hotel after makan di Hamid..

Pagi esok, g shop lagi di Market tapi just the 5 of us. Habis segala lorong kami masuk and banyak nya barang! Communication tak la susah sangat..The traders understand simple english but my kids were giggling away to their ascent.
The collection of shoes...

The selection of fruits..

The selection of jeans..

Posing with one of the selection..

Jalan lagi...

At about 1pm, the van which drove us in to Siam, came to pick us back..

By 3.30pm, I was already in the house in Sungai Petani doing my laundry..ha ha

A very quick and not so expensivee getaway..Syukur


Its the final day..
As in the morning ada lagi 60 'products' on display and mine was one of it.

Yang lebih tensed is that at 3pm is the closing ceremony. Results would be released by then and the juding team have basically one hour to deliberate everything. Memang penat and kind of hectic la.

Prof Zaliha, Campus Director came to support the event, syukur alhamdulillah.

 The VIP for the event was Prof Suhaimi and during his speech he said, SYABAS to the committee memeber for such an event, I was at the top of the world..

Thanks Prof Suhaimi..

Major hiccups tak ada, tapi the minor ones is expected la kan..mana ada event yg great perfect. tapi that will be tabled masa post morten as it avoid doing the same thing for next IID event..

To all my team, Thanks very much for the committment. I really appreciate the effort and frankly, for such a big event like this, selalunya perlukan 60 people to work behid the scene tapi on that day itself, ada about 30 aje..

To PM Dr Maznah, she has been there througout the event supporting us on all matters.m Many thanks to you..

Syukur, the file can now be closed.

Good BYE IID KEDAH 2010...Lega and seronok

IID KEDAH 2010 - 28th JULY 2010..

I couldn't sleep..pukul 4 dah terkebil2 atas katil..I tossed left and right..ish, tak leh gak nak tidur..At 4.30pm, I gave up and just went downstairs. Masak air, make coffee and then terus masak soup for kids' lunch.

At 7am, left the house as usual as Syed need to hantar Princess to school. I reached SP INN at about 7.15am and Shamsul was there already..I went to the ballroom to cehck on the set up..Thank ALLAH, syukur sangat2, the booth were set up very nice and FUHH!, lega gila.

Then sorang2 my friends sampai and we work hand in hand to tampal2 the setting at the booth. Settle all within minutes and then participants came in and the SESSIONS BEGINS!

I was nervous, and gabra..tapi alhamdulillah things went very smoothly..SYUKUR.
1. Judges were there to evaluate the products and ideas.
2. School childres came in and out to see the products..

There were 121 products from 3 different catogories ( A, B or C), and each has its subcategories which was either Innovation, Invention and Design.
A was for the University Students
B was for School students
C was for the professionals

On the 1st day, ada 60 products which was on displayed and we had judges who were in the group of 3 who went around to evaluate. The judges were both from the universities and also from the industries.

At first, ballroom tu macam sunyi aje pasal tak ada spectators, tapi as it approach 11am, nah kau! Students from St Theresa datang kat 60 org, then ada few students from Sekolah Sg Layar, and many more from other schools which I don't know sekolah mana. Tiba-tiba I rasa the ballroom jadi kecik lak..ramainya orang and nak jalan pun tak leh..tapi stukur gila. The crowd was there till about 5pm..

The day went off smoothly..

IID KEDAH 2010..starts with 27th July 2010..set up day

The last meeting to discuss on the many many tiny weeny things was held the Tue before between days, I would either get help from Syazliati, Hidayah and many others..tapi these ladies were up and down as they were both the Secretariat and also the Vice Chair for registration..2 orang lagi yg selalu dok communicate with are Ustaz Fauzi and also Sufi..

The day before the event, we had our rehersal at SP INN..tengahari tu I dah sakit kepala...I seek permission from Dr Maznah to leave early as kepala dah berdenyut2..I jenis yg tak makan panadol, tak suka ubat tapi this time around, I was rummaging through the kotak ubat dalam fridge to cari choice la..Had one and then g cari bantal as to rest. First time in mylife, I silent my handphone masa bukan kelas. I just need half an hour sleep, or else rasa nak muntah semua cukup. 4.30pm woke up, siap and then head up to SP INN..

The hall was bare, only the sofa's and the chairs were there but my BOOTH was still nowhere around..tak semput ke..adoi. Nak nangis pun ada, tapi Diauddin kata relax kak, it's on the way..

We had our rehersal, did the final set up and stayed there until 8.30pm. Kawan-kawan from the registratiom team came to set up the docs, so did the team from penghakiman. The camera experts, T Zahira was there and was clicking her camera at all directions.I was dead lucky as the whole team was very committed.

28th Julay was THE day for us and everyone promised to be early as we need to put up the labels on the booth. Nak letak hari n, the booth pun tak sampai2 lagi. I left SP INN with heavy heart as tak nampak the booth!

Malam tu tidur tak lena!
