Syaaban oh Syaaban~

Last sunday, I went to learn reading the Quran. Actually I know how to read but this class is for adult, so basically perfecting the Quran reading. I went to this class with my father-in-law and seems like it was decided that this class will be commencing every Sunday night.

It was fun and educational though. Ugama school ended like years ago but going to this class, I get a whiff of my old times in Ugama school. He he such memories huh~! I thought it was just going to be like reading and correcting, reading and correcting but hey, it was more than that.

The Ustaz (teacher) actually teaches us some of the basic Tajwid (correct reading method) and gives us some good hints and information on reading some words that require 'dengung'. I feel a bit liberated though, cause I used to be very good at this and now I'm a bit lost and forgotten some of the rules and stuff.

Alhamdulillah, the class went on from 8.15pm until 10.00pm. Thanks 'bapa' for giving me a chance to join this class. Its a very good activity and ensures my well-being. Hopefully for the upcoming ramadhan, I will be able to read Quran more smoothly and properly, Amin~!

ps: kena baca gak sorang-sorang depan semua hehe, segan gak tapi best :)

The first step towards fatherhood~!

Well let me start where it began, one morning of 23rd June, my wife woke me up and without saying much, she showed me this. Then I was filled with joy that I can't express with my sleepy face. The first thing came to my mind was "Alhamdulillah, I can't believe it". Lots of my friends are having problems conceiving a child. Even one of my friend actually adopted since the wait is too long. As for me, Allah Maha Kaya, I'm thankful!

This morning, we went for an Ultra-Trans-Vaginal thingy. Little did I expect to see anything much since it's just that my wife only less than 2 months pregnant. But oh boy! I wasn't expecting this. You see, I can see the foetus already and the umbilical cord. It's there! My baby is there, visible!! I feel a rush of happiness looking at my own growing child. I'm almost in tears. It's now 100% confirmed that I'm going to be a dad.

There's more! The doctor said that if we are lucky enough, we could hear its heartbeat. Yes, it has a heartbeat. Then, there it is, around 170 beats per minute... it is the most beautiful sound one could ever hear. At this point, I'm in tears. Something that is mine and in about 7 months, its gonna be there, right in front of my face and in my arms. The doctors predicted the arrival of our baby on 1st March 2011. My god! I can't wait. Oh yeah, it's just a single foetus, so no twins for now :p huhu

"Ya Allah, selamatkanlah diriku, selamatkanlah isteriku dan selamatkanlah anak didalam kandungan isteriku, hanya kepada Mu kami mampu berserah dan kepada Mu juga kami akan kembali"

ps: I'm so filled with emotions right now......

Owh the sweet road~

Today, I missed my mum and dad. So, I went home quickly after sending my wife to work and take a shower. Put on my work cloth and went straight to my parent's house. I don't know why I feel so giddy and happy that morning. As if, for once, my head feels a bit light.
Well, to make long story short, talk to my dad, bla bla bla, yada yada yada... tadaa~! poof! I finally got the phone that I have been wanting for so long. HTC Legend~! Wait, don't ask too many things about it yet, I haven't used it wildly hu hu. Tomorrow, need to buy a soft case for my new baby HTC. Anyway, enjoy~
ps: oh, I got a new laptop that come along with it, thanks DAD~!!!

Sugar sugar honey honey~

Sugar oh sugar!! Why are you such an enemy to my health? Why oh why? You taste so good, you makes me want you more and more each day. Now I have to see you less often. Arrgghh! Equal just does not taste the same though it brings a better health value.

But nevermind, my lovely wife is sweeter than you. She cooks a much better healthy food which require less or no sugar at all. Gonna miss you sugar but I miss my health more~! He he he

ps: to those sugar-lover out there, better stop before it stops first... [apa yg aku merepek nih!]

Dinner @ Istana Nurul Iman~

Last night we went to Istana Nurul Iman on invitation to Majlis Bersantap bersama KDYMM. We arrived at the palace around 7.30pm but on arrival, there are many other people who arrived already at the venue.

The table was set nicely and it was filled with cutlery, plates and stuff. Before the dinner starts, only two kinds of juices were served and having some experiences on drinks, I bet they serve the no added sugar juices, way to go! :D

The food menu was nicely done, simple but tasteful. The menu was slightly damped due to the wet fan. But hey, it's all good~

At last the food was served, dinner started. The served: Beef Pesamah, Lamb Curry, Chicken Kurma, Fish Fillet in Coconut Gravy, Prawn Kapitan, Sauteed Mixed Vegetables (the best one), Pulao Rice and White Rice. And the dessert: Green Tea Semi Freddo with Sweet Sour Layered Cake (very sweet and delicious).

Since it's already 9pm and we haven't eaten since lunch, there is no time to waste, we start to dig in. Told my wife let's eat slow and steady, but instead, we eat without even saying a word [lapar banar tah sudah he he], look at that, all to ourselves~

His Majesty walks really fast, so my camera is not set to take fast movement pictures, basically of all the pictures I've taken, this is the best one hu hu too bad~

Malaysian ex-Prime Minister was also there.

ps: back home around 11.30pm, what a night but fun~!

Off to Clinic~

Got doctor's appointment today and it was a nice warm day (not that hot!). The queue was a bit long but not depressing. I went to the reception and got to see the result of my blood test 2 weeks ago. My blood sugar level has dropped from 9 to 7. I was surprised! I did it he he, I'm sure my wife will be so proud of me. The doctor checked my blood pressure and it is back to normal. My uric acid was a bit high around 478H. It has not changed since my last check up. But it should subside now since my gout nearly gone :D

The doctor said I should watch what I eat now and do some regular exercise, and yeah I will doc!! :) Having gout is NOT fun... seriously. With my baby coming along, daddy has to get real healthy *blush*...... anyway, off to work now, school will end early today due to "Solat Jemaah" in conjuction with the Sultan's birthday. Daulat Kebawah Duli Tuan Patik~!

ps: malam ni ada tusyen, rehat tia karang! ahahahaha...........

What a day....

Oh my god~! how many of these things left for me to mark?? No matter how much I have done, there is still many left. Is there any way for us to be more effective than this? The thing is, if we don't give the kids these works, they wouldn't be learning anything. But if we give it, it takes lots of our time to assess it. I though SPN suppose to make it easy. It was said before, for SPN... "teacher will do less marking".... and I was like.. yeaaaaah right!! Continuous assessment baby!! No such thing as less marking hahahahaha....~

Went to a bit of grocery shopping last time, bought some stuff for making my wife special "shepherd's pie" requested humbly by my good friend "fajar de cruz". I was so bored while waiting on the counter and look what I did.. ahaha.. I arrange the groceries.. yes ladies n gentlemen, thats how long we waited.. kekeke.. by the way, the shepherd pie was superb! hehe..

ps: can't eat much pie, gout nanti! hehe

Serenity Beach~

Went to Muara beach last sunday... the end of a nice long weekend (friday till sunday). So many to think about especially finances. I have to say, its rather neck-choking but I'm sure god has better intention. Mesti sabar dan redha!

I have to say, the cool breeze from the sea has some calming effect and I keep looking at how far the sea goes... it seems endless, but when I think straight ahead, there's should be Singapore and West Malaysia.... there's another life going on the other side of the sea.

Keep on praying to Allah~ "Berikanlah ketenangan pada diri hambaMu yang lemah ini, luaskan lah rezeki kami yang hanya mampu berserah kepadaMu, amin~!"

ps: sabarlah wahai saudara-saudara Brunei ku, insyaAllah, kesempitan kitani ani, ada rahmatnya nanti... amin~
