My 33rd

Alhamdulillah, last Monday I celebrated my 33rd birthday.

A birthday prayer for myself, which I googled.

Thank you Allah, for giving me another year of life.
Thank you for all the people who remembered me today by sending good wishes.
Thank you for all the experience of this past year;
for times of success which will always be happy memories,
for times of failure which reminded me of my own weakness,
for times of joy when the sun was shining,
for times of sadness which drove me to You.

Forgive me
for the hours I wasted,
for the chances I failed to take,
for the opportunities I missed this past year.
Help me in the days ahead to make this the best year yet,
and through it, with Your blessing and Guidance, to bring good credit to myself,
happiness and pride to my loved ones,
and joy to You.

Of Ringtones

Early this week, the Morning Crew discussed the topic of the ringtones set for your contacts. I am the kind of person who sets ringtones for everyone – my hubby, my family, my circle of friends. It is definitely useful for purposes of identification. The reason of choosing those songs to the group is based on the songs I have on my handphone.

So these are the ringtones set on my handphone :o)

Hubby – Toploader’s Dancing in the Moonlight

Home AD – Faiq singing Mari Mengenal Malaikat

D.U family – Spongebob Squarepants’ final score

Kajang family – Black Eyed Peas’ Mas Que Nada

MGHS friends – Dora The Explorer’s theme

SMDU friends – Maroon 5’s Won’t Go Home Without You

MSM friends – The Simpsons’ theme

UiTM friends – Spongebob Squarepants’ theme

KWP friends – Amazing Race’s Theme

Bosses – Star Wars Imperial March theme

My RnL and DPA friends all have different ring tones which are taken from Sony Ericsson’s tunes selection. My general ringtone is I Dream of Jeannie’s theme and the tune for my sms alert is The Temptations’ Build Me Up Buttercup.

Proud Mom Syndrome

Today is Faiq's kindy open day.

We all went at about 11 a.m.

His teacher said that he has improved a lot. It can be seen from his results. He may not be the best student but he has learned a lot this one year.

I am so proud of him!

Well Done, Faiq Khan!!

Hari Raya and Lantern Festival Celebration at Bintang Damai Kindergarten

Bintang Damai Kindergarten organised a Hari Raya and Lantern Festival celebration on 24 September 2010. Parents were welcomed to bring/donate food so I cooked fried macaroni for the kids. Faiq wore his baju Melayu and since I didn't attend the celebration (it was held on Friday morning) and I sent Faiq quite early, I only got to take a photo of Faiq and Harez.

Later that night, the kids gather again for the Lantern Festival. It was supposed to start at 8 p.m. but working parents arrived after 8.15 p.m. We had some snacks before the teachers requested the children to line up and light their lanterns. I was amazed that there are now battery operated lanterns. Ahhh..the victim of modern technology. I heard Faiq conversing in English with his classmates. Faiq lined up beside Rikshen, and I heard the cutest conversation:

Rikshen: Faiq, you hold my hand so you are my bestfriend.
Faiq: You are my bestfriend too.

As we were about to walk, it started drizzling so what is supposed to be a walk around the taman ended up as a walk around the padang. It started raining very heavily when we finished walking so the teachers had to cancel some activities. We went in the school to allow the children to play before leaving at about 9 p.m.

I had a great time and I bet the other parents and especially the children enjoyed themselves too!

Syawal 1431H With Nina

Took the opportunity to celebrate Syawal with Nina as she came back from Dubai for the festive season.

The first meeting took place at her house. I informed the rest of the Keliwonz about it but since this year's Hari Raya holiday was long, it was understandable that no one else could make it. I went there with my kids and maid as Rafiq had some errands to run. Nina's mom cooked briyani for us, which was absolutely delish. We chatted for about an hour before it was time to leave when the kids got restless.

The second meeting took place at Silver Spoons at Kota Damansara. Shazz, who owns Silver Spoons is also our MSM chums. It's really a wonder how many turned up during an unplanned meet. Initially it was just supposed to be me, Nina & Dina (and Shazz of course) but we were later joined by Zaza and Aden. We ordered a lot and it was funny when Shazz told us that the cooks commented, "How many people are eating? We only see 3 people but the order is a lot!!" Hahaha! So normal for us to be serakah. We exchanged stories and insults and we had so much fun.

Hope to do it again the next time Nina or Nurul return home :o)

To my readers, sudi-sudilah berkunjung ke Silver Spoons at The Strand, Kota Damansara!!

Belated Syawal Pix

That's our Syawal this year. Looking forward for another Syawal next year, insya-Allah.
