I loved to be called Huslina, and will use it as my initial wherever I go. Many people addressed me as Nana, as what my family has been calling me since I was little (notice that common name in my family; nonoi, nana, titi, nini etc). Comes marriage many female would put their hubby’s initial as part of their identity i.e Sara Mia, Faizah Shaari (jangan marah). In the end, when our body laid to rest we will be “bin” or “Binti” to our mother i.e Huslina Binti Nasuha..
It becomes a trend nowdays that people love to name their children uniquely, in my family we would came across names like Kasih, Farell, Isaac and the new addition Sofie Isabella. A cousin even name her daughter Sofia Zara Ashzuin (beautiful but mouthful, belum include Binti lagi!).,but they call her Piah, which is not even one third of her own name!
When I gave birth to my third child, my other half adored the name Mikael Hazeem so much and was already broadcast the name to everyone upon the baby’s arrival. (Note that the name Mikael is originate from Mikhail, one of the messenger. Then Hazeem, originally comes from Hazim, which means “resolute”)
There were lot of arguments from our parents on the name especially Mikael being inappropriate as I read in one of the book. I can see hubby’s disappointment upon returning from the Registration Office and unhappily said “dah bagi nama Muhammad Hazim..”.
A name given comes with a doa, a prayer for every parents. Be it Muhammad Haziq, Nazurah and Muhammad Hazim; their presence is truly a blessed and my prayer is for them to also resemble the meaning of their names. To my Nazri, it is not too late for Mikhail (if not Natasha) , insyaAllah.
p/s: My name is the only one in the family without meaning

Relationship requires lots of effort, one may say, but to me loves comes naturally. It is not a physical attachment but a unity of two soul (phuh!! macam Dr Love!) During the teenage years, I saw many hearts were broken badly (mine included, ha ha..).. then as I grew older, I realize that there is still a lot of heartache too.. What valued most in a relationship is not measured by diamond rings or flowers… but trust..
Marriages is supposed to be a sacred thing, It’s so sad to see how a marriages collapsed and the reason given simply due “irreconcilable differences”.. or the existence of a third person.
I’m neither a romantic person nor a mushy mushy wifey.. I valued every hand holding initiated by my other half and even a line of text message expressing his feelings to me is enough to make my heart melt.. (and of course I value them because it is special and one will only do it to their none other than loved ones).
Love is warm, when it’s new
Love is sweet, when it’s true
Never look for your partner’s mistakes; if you keep on judging them, you have no time to love them. I’m neither a good lover nor a perfect partner. As I have passed a decade in my marriage, I realized that learning process is still on going and there is no such thing as one “graduated” in marriage.
I have passed through the first decade of marriage and I am looking forward to spend the rest of my life with my partner and children.
To my hubby,
A very much belated “Happy 10th Annivesary”.. (It may be 10 months overdue but it came from the bottom of my heart).Terima kasih for letting me to be a part of your life..and for the wonderful thing throughout our marriage. Please forgive me for not able to be a good wife and a good companion. May Allah swt bless us all eternally
p/s: Remember there is a saying in Malay “Cinta tak semestinya bersatu”..? so you decide who to remain and your heart as there are many people walks in and out of your life.
