Aftermath

The haze is getting from bad to worst. I guess the gloominess and suffocation brought by it reflects the state of the heart. My mother is no longer around. This thought keeps repeating itself inside my head over and over. Truthfully, I have "redha" since that last day I took care of her about 1 year and half a month ago. But reality is a totally different thing.

Visited her grave on the next day. Since I didn't have the chance or time to prepare bunga rampai, which seems to be my task when such event happens, I made some.
Kasi make-up sikit... My father's too!
Anyway, speaking of haze, anak comel sent me a message on Saturday at around 8pm, saying she's not well and if she can come home. We thought of driving down straight away but she said it's OK. She didn't want to "susahkan" both of us. So we went to fetch her early  Sunday morning. Salam tangan saja dah rasa panas. Dia demam dan selsema. The haze was really bad there. After going to panel c…

Selamat Jalan Mak...

My beloved mother passed away yesterday, Thursday 12 September, at 11.47pm. She has been hospitalised at Serdang Hospital for the past 2 weeks plus. She was buried today, Friday 13 September, at around 11am. Today is her 81st birthday.

I didn't get to be with her at her last. Received call from my SIL Azah at 11.42pm, straight away got ready, rushed out, made a U-turn back to fetch my Angah, and on the way just as we passed Southville exit, received call from my Abang Ben informing that my mother has left us.

My mother passed on a most auspicious night. And she was buried on a most auspicious day. I am certain her end was husnul khatimah. She left peacefully. When I reached her hospital bed at around 12.40am, she was already cleaned up, the tubes removed. And her face looked so... the only word I can find is cute. So comel. Round healthy face, fair and calm with this little mischievous look brought by her lips. She's just sleeping, I said to myself. When I kissed her forehead,…

New Month

It's already September. Time sure flies when you have nothing much to do! Let's see...

First, my sewing. I have not touched my sewing machine in like more than a week. That's a long time for me. Bukan tak ada project. Ada. Entahlah, punyalah malas pulak. I actually have this fabric to be made into a palazzo for anak comel. Masa dia balik last 2 weeks, I saw that the black palazzo I made her macam dah lusuh sikit. So we went to Gio and bought her new fabric. She wanted exactly like the one I made earlier. And since I dah pandai jahit side pockets, add pockets. Tapi, sampai hari ni masih elok lagi kain tu terlipat!

I also promised to make her a zip pouch for her pencil case. Nasib yang sama juga. Godek-godek kain dalam box, jumpa yang sesuai. Ada je tu kat atas meja πŸ˜….

But then, last week I actually spent the time studying (theory dulu). I enrolled in kelas jahit telekung. As usual, it's an online class. Menarik juga jahit telekung ek? First project pastinya untuk anak …

Sambal Menyambal

Hari ni ialah hari Sambal Garing Che Nor πŸ˜…. Ha ah, I ni agent. Dah jadi agent dekat 2-3 tahun kot. Tak lah aktif sangat. Biasanya sebulan satu kotak saja. Maintain requirement jadi agent. Pagi tadi pergi restock di kedai regular di Bukit Mahkota. Sebenarnya lambat sikit daripada biasa. Tapi alhamdulillah, habis juga. Terus kosong kotak kat rumah ni😊.

Pagi semalam, lepas Subuh check phone, waaahhh... ada payment ke PayPal. Ada orang beli sambal garing kat eBay. Jadinya, lepas restock tadi, pegi beli FlexiPack International envelope untuk pos sambal satu bekas ke US. Satu bekas saja. Tapi setelah pengalaman pos 5 bekas sambal beberapa bulan lepas, I dah study betul-betul semua charges dan make sure ada profit. Bukan apa, dulu menjual di eBay biasanya orang beli satu barang saja. Tapi bila kena orang beli 5 barang terus, barulah tau seksa juga πŸ˜….

Just nak share kot la ada yang nak menjual di eBay, these are the changes you need to consider when you sell:
1. Fees to PayPal - percentage…

Try to Stay Active

It's been quite a good month in terms of fitness. My fitness diary showed I exercised at least once a week (2 weeks of such by going to CBF class). For the rest of the weeks, one CBF class plus either hiking or jogging. This week paling rajin - one CBF class and 2 jogging sessions. Walaupun weight masih static, at least rasa sihat sikit πŸ˜….
 This morning berjaya jogging bawah 50mins. Kena selalu jogging macam dulu lah. My merdeka exercise shot. Punya panjang rumput kat tepi jalan ni! Yeayyy... berjaya menghabiskan August challenge pagi tadi. Esok start challenge baru. I downloaded another fitness app - Book Doc. It's actually teleconsulting app but has this Activ feature with virtual steps challenge. Boleh sync dengan Garmin atau Samsung Health. So far I dah dapat silver medals for Petron and Giant steps challenge. Ada hadiah okay. So, download lah and start walking😎.

Home is the Place

See... I spend so much time at home, I don't have any idea for a title anymore πŸ˜…. Around the house nowadays...
 I went to Ecco a couple of weeks ago and bought this. Because it's cheap. And because we don't seem to get the chance to visit nurseries around this area. So I tried putting this fertilizer at our trees.  Three days later, look what we found at our mango tree! Alhamdulillah... And... our lime tree too! Pokok limau ni dah berbulan tak berbuah.
Try it. Tak sure lah sebab memang bagus fertilizer tu or it's coincidence pokok-pokok tu keluar bunga! But then, I letak kat our lemon tree... masih hampa!
 Pokok pisang tanduk ni pun dah berbuah. Alhamdulillah... Ini ialah pokok petai ya tuan-tuan dan puan-puan. Ha ah, I beli kat MAHA. Entah kenapa I beli pokok ni pun tak tau! Tapi lepas alih ke pasu baru, dan setelah hidup segan mati tak mahu selama hampir 2 minggu, dia OK balik. Hopefully sihat dan subur. My other fruit trees - durian belanda dan avocado tak menjadi.…

Belajar Tajwid

Belajar tajwid ialah life-long learning. Dulu-dulu kat sekolah agama belajar, sekarang ni bila belajar semula barulah macam - "Oooo... baru faham!" πŸ˜…. Dan I memang really recommend classes Ustaz Asraff sebab methodologi dia lain sikit. Starting bulan September, kelas tajwid online siri ke 2 akan bermula. Alhamdulillah I masuk yang siri 1. Sekarang dah tamat tapi I saja yang belum habis kelas πŸ˜…. Insyaallah... sikit saja lagi ni!
