The first time I watched this video in Astro Oasis, I was touched. It make me realised that only Him we love and believe in. To all my Muslim friends, relatives, brothers and sisters, Salam Aidil Adha to all of you.

19 Nov is UPSR result day dan alhamdulillah, Danial berjaya mendapat 5A. Alhamdulillah again! Satu lagi sejarah dicipta oleh anak-anak aku. In 2005, Awin scored 5As. Now Danial pulak. Aku sangat2 bersyukur kepada Allah SWT.
Frankly speaking, aku tak expect Danial akan dapat 5A. Sampaikan lagi setengah jam result nak keluar, aku masih prepare diri aku untuk 4A1B, B is BM of course (macamlah aku yg ambil exam). Masa aku dapat tahu 51 students dapat 5A, jauh di sudut hati aku, biarlah orang ke 51 tu Danial. Tapi hati ini masih kuat mengatakan 4A1B. Sebabnya Danial tak serius in study walaupun according to his class teacher, dia pay attention, hard working in class. Danial betul-betul all-out waktu trial start...But still I've my doubt.
Tapi aku tak henti2 berdoa pada Allah... siang malam. Only God knows. In fact from the day one he sat for the exam sampailah ke final day, aku buat solat hajat for every each paper serentak dengan time exam start. Time tu plak second week of Ramadhan. Dan aku yakin doa hambaNya yang berpuasa tidak akan ditolak, InsyaAllah.
Hilang rasa malu menangis depan kawan2.
Danial with his new look.
Habis saja exam, Danial kata dia bernazar nak botakkan kepala macam Mawi kalau dapat 5A. Dia pernah kena panggil dengan cikgu disiplin sebab rambut panjang but when he explained about the nazar, cikgu tu terus tak kacau dia.
The Proud Family!
Nampak tak betapa lebarnya senyuman aku! We all proud of you, Danial. (Sayangnya Awin tak ada to celebrate this moment. Sure dia bangga sebab adiknya ikut jejak langkah dia). Hubby dah janji nak bagi RM50 for each A. Atuk and nenek dah standby dengan suprise for Danial. Angah, dah janji nak bawa dia keluar makan-makan to celebrate. Pak Yan pulak, "Danial boleh minta apa saja". Iqah, "Nanti Acu amik cuti, kita keluar KL then pilihlah nak apa pun. "Pak Wan pulak, on hold dulu sebab masih busy dengan his new born baby. Me? Secret!
The next morning, I received a phone call from Pn. Limah, salah seorang orang kuat PASTI. She said, PASTI nak bagi award for their ex-student yang score 5As in UPSR this year. Then only I remember, dulu Danial tadika di PASTI. That was 6 years ago! But they still keep track of their student's achievement. Tak sangka.
Siapa sangka.... from standard 1 until standard 5, Danial was in 1st class, Kelas Fitrah, always dapat good score. Suddenly dia 'tercampak' ke kelas ketiga utk standard 6. I was soooo disappointed at that time. Tuhan aje yang tahu. Tapi aku tak salahkan dia. Masa Danial standard 5, dia sibuk jadi wakil sekolah dalam xtvt koko. Selalu tak masuk kelas. Orang sibuk belajar, dia pulak berpanas berhujan kat tengah padang mewakili sekolah. At that time eventhough I was worried, I tried to ignore the feeling bcoz I wanted his achievement in cocuriculum to support his UPSR result later.
Then, bila dia masuk kelas 6 Cekal, I was depressed. Walaupun 6Cekal is the third best class, but I want him to be in 6Fitrah or at least 6Amanah, the second best class. I was so depressed sampaikan aku jumpa Pn. Noraini, Penolong Kanan at that time. She said something yang menyedarkan aku, "Tak semestinya student kelas ketiga tak boleh score 5As dan belum tentu students kelas pertama boleh score 5As."
And it's true! Danial from third class get 5As and some of his friends from first class only managed to score 4A 1B! YESSS! He beats them all!
Best Achievement In Class Year 6 for 9 subjects.
So, the moral of the story is.... always have faith in our kid's ability no matter what. Here I would like to deliver our special thank you to all his teachers esp. Pn. Thava ( class & Math's Tchr ), Pn. Aspalela (BM Tchr), Pn. Rosieyanti (Science Tchr) & Sir Yusof ( Eng Tchr).
Tak lupa kepada Sir Yusri & Pn. Nori (personal Eng Tutor), Pn. Haslina & Pn. Salwati (personal Science Tutor). Hanya Allah saja yang mampu membalas jasa serta ilmu yang kalian curahkan.
On the same day, Affiq also received his award. He got second place in class. We all proud of you, my dear.
Aku tak sangka Affiq can score good result for final exam, sebabnya I was so busy paying attention to Danial's exam. Affiq pun sama macam Danial, last minute all-out. When I addressed my concern to daughter Awin, she said "Ibu, budak lelaki memang macam tu. They play first, then study at the same time!".
Best Achievement In Class Year 5.
Affiq promised me 'hat trick' for UPSR next year! Kebetulan, malam tu, Masjid Saujana Utama is open for public for the first time. Malam tu selain solat pertama berjemaah di masjid baru, majlis bacaan yaasin & solat hajat juga diadakan. Jadi kami ambil kesempatan untuk meraikan kejayaan anak2 di masjid baru. It's totally out of tradition...

It's Nadia's idea to watch a movie @One Utama on Saturday nite. It was a last minute plan. We agreed not to watch English movie this time. We watched Pisau Cukur! Don't laugh, yeah. Sometimes, we need to support our local movies too. Pisau Cukur by Redfilms is not a bad film after all. If you dont watch The Making, you wouldnt know that the film was not made on a luxury cruise ship.
Coincidentally the four of us wear black blouse and blue jeans! We had fun. Please do not talk bad or gossiping about us! Of course we went out with our hubby's consent. Then, on our way home, we laughed at ourselves for watching Malay movies!

Last Saturday, we all went to 1 Utama. Hajat dihati nak bawa anak2 tengok 2012 yang dah released but all shows for that day dah full. Show for the next day pulak, yang available ialah 12:30am and onwards! Bila tengok barisan panjang yang bengkang-bengkok macam ular, tak sanggup pulak rasanya nak beratur. Tunggulah bila 'pisang goreng' dah sejuk nanti...
FYI, background 'scenery' tu hanya sebahagian.
We went to Subway for dinner... hubby is craving for sandwiches. So the whole family had sandwich for dinner, saja tukar selera. But the size of sandwich ni kenyangnya sama macam makan nasi. That's for me, I'm not sure about them!
Kena letak napkin kat dada or else....
"Mommy will get angry".
Aksi2 terlampau selepas perut kenyang.
But I bet they will ask for more after this.
Ini baru 1st round.
As I said earlier, sandwich takkan cukup. We ordered Pretzel about half an hour after sandwich. Our favourites... sweet sour onion & cinnamon sugar.
This is our favourite 'pot'. Mesti singgah MPH to look for reading materials. Tapi MPH ni tak buat sale. Yang tengah buat sale gila2 is MPH The Cova. Salenya berbaloi2...

It's wet season. Kalau di negara 4 musim, it's already winter. But Malaysia only have 2 seasons, wet and dry. Nowdays, the weather is so unpredictable... nak outing pun susah. Anak2 pun tak boleh buat outdoor xtvt. Pity them.
During dry & hot season, we will normally turn on our air-cond. But what would you do if it's wet season, non stop raining the whole day? For some people, that's not a problem at all. But to me, it's a problem. Want to know why? I dont like cold. So this is what I do to solve my problem.
To make sure I'm not too cold, I'll eat durian.... a lot! Mujurlah gerai durian tak jauh. I dont buy from gerai durian near to club house tu... mahal & tasteless. I buy from gerai dekat Anggerik 11. Cheap (6 for RM10), delicious and sweet! Malam tu, dapat tidur lena sebab tak rasa sejuk sangat, syoknya!
Time ni tengah hujan, we all 'berkelah' kat wakaf. Kopek semua durian and makan! Mujur anak2 pun hantu durian macam aku. The father tak makan durian, so dia beli nasi kukus berlauk yang panas. Nasi yang panas di waktu hujan turun, nampak sungguh tempting! Kalau non-stop hujan macam ni, jawabnya non-stop la aku makan durian. Bestnya!

We... me, Nadia, Kak K, Yani and Shikin, planned this surprise bday party for Azidah and Wan at Nadia's. It's not a party actually, cuma majlis kecil utk meraikan bday kawan2 jer. Alhamdulillah, surprise tu menjadi walaupun Wan dari tengah hari tak berganjak dari rumah Nadia. So our plan starts a bit late la jugak.
Azi happy but Wan is still in shock.
Bang Bang Boom!
Azi's bday was on Syawal, kami tak dapat nak celebrate sebab time tu semuanya bz dengan open house sana sini. Bday Wan pulak is on triple 1 one (fikirlah sendiri date tu). So we all decided to celebrate sekaligus.
Char kuetiau and agar-agar.
Above ialah menu yang aku prepare but there's more foods yang diprepare oleh kawan2 lain. Such as roti jala by Kak K, cupcakes and drinks by Nadia, bread caramel by Yani and fruits by Shikin.
From R-L: Kak K, Shikin and her kids, Azi, Nadia, Me and Wan. Yani was not in the pic bcoz she's the photographer of the day. Sori Yani, I forgot to bring my tripod... again.
Birthday girls dengan hadiah masing2. Azi dengan stainless steel yang diidamkan and Wan dengan cake stand. Hope you like it, girls.

Now is the season of Sehati Berdansa 3 @Astro Ria. As most of us know, Sehati Berdansa is a reality TV show of the couple dancing competition and only married couple can participate esp if you are an artist, public figure or personality. My vote goes to Sazzy and Nazril, of course.
Song: Aku Rindu.
But the above couple here is merely friends who are trying to enjoy life. For this Sehati Berdansa, their choreographer is Teacher Sal. 'Badan Kebajikan' represented by them is En. Armstrong, Q-dees Saujana Utama!
Song: Wooly Bully.
Here, you can watch them 'dance till death'. The best part is you dont have to waste your money to vote for them. It's FOC!
8th Nov 2009... Finally the day I had been waiting for arrived! It's Qme's concert and graduation last weekend. This is our last kindy concert.
Qme wasn't smiling a lot and
we suspected he was nervous.
Qme received his scroll from The Principal, Teacher Emy.
Wooly Bully is the song.
"Qme, ibu tak tau pun Qme pandai menari."
p/s: will upload the video later....

It has been quite a while since my last update. Aku busy dengan segala macam hal... kid's exam, friend's invitation, family matters, jenguk Awin @boarding school, etc. Itulah dunia aku. Sometimes, terlalu leka melayan tuntutan orang lain, sampaikan terlupa akan tuntutan untuk diri sendiri. Aku dah lama tak buat sauna & massage, dah lama tak attend gym class, entah bila kali terakhir aku buat facial, aku pun tak pasti, apatah lagi shopping alone. Arghhh! I miss all that!
Bila berpeluang berborak dengan mak over the phone, cuba meluahkan segala kesibukan, mak pasti cakap, "Itulah pengorbanan seorang ibu and you are so lucky to be a mother." I guess it's true. Memang aku bertuah, I'm surrounded by a loving, caring husband and 5 wonderful kids... alhamdulillah. I must appreciate every single moment while I'm still here. Who knows, esok lusa my 'time' comes. I want to be the best for them. InsyaAllah...
