Almost Blind, by NAK

Almost half a year ago, I saved this note written by Nouman Ali Khan on his Facebook wall. I can’t remember the exact time, it’s either during Ramadan or slightly before. When I read it the first time, .. I cried. I thought, wow, it was such an honest piece of writing. A note he was writing in the middle

12 years

Alhamdulillah, this November we celebrate our 12th anniversary. Definitely not a short time and I wish we still have many years of togetherness to come. Aamiin. 12 years! Where has the time gone? 12 years and I still couldn’t write words of love 🙂 The truth is I’m not even sure if love is what makes us survive the marriage up

Tokyo Bay Skyline

Let’s just say, I was lucky that by chance, my husband and his team got rooms at Hilt0n Tokyo Odaiba for their three weeks stay in Tokyo. A bit surprised because initially I had thought he would stay somewhere in central with all the hustle and bustle that characterise Tokyo. As we always stayed in Shinjuku every time we had

on a race

I remember those days, not so long ago, where I could miss obligatory prayers without much guilt. Countless dzuhur and maghrib prayers had been neglected, usually during weekend. Also, I remember at time where I used to shamefully approve my own self to do jama’ shalat ( combined two obligatory prayers in a time) very so often, and yes before you

THE SNOWY DAY

[ 24 January, 2017] First instalment of 2017 Japan Trip series. Let me start with telling you that this was my first time to experience this much of snow. And as any first experience is supposed to be, it was truly memorable. It was magical. Well, I was a bit worried at first because I went solo for a day

a change of heart

Have you ever felt your life was too good that you kept wondering what had you done to deserve such blessings? I have. And the feeling had been a trigger for what I call as a change of heart.  Last year, to me, my life was brilliant and good things kept being thrown on my lap and dreams kept coming

U P D A T E

I have been doing major cleaning on my social media accounts these past months. More precisely, deleting MANY photos and unfollowing some useless instagram accounts. The easiest is my Facebook account as it’s been so so many years I’ve only used the platform to connect with groups of friends and to share useful articles. I had had it secured with maximum

Papa

Innalillahi wa inna ilaihi rojiun. Nine days after he passed away, it still feels surreal. There’re still some moments when reality has hit me hard and I’ve realised he’s gone forever. He was 65. His health had been deteriorating for the last one year. Moreover after my brother’s wedding early this year. Did I mention on previous post that my brother
