Another routine, another norms

There are things in life which are strange in the beginning before it become norms. For example, for the first 2 decade of my life, without failed, I have always been with my mother during Hari Raya morning.
This however changed as I entered marriage life. Even though my parents and my in-laws resident merely 15 minutes drive from one another, it still caused a great impact on the first time.
I cried like nobody's business in the surau near in-laws before Aidil fitri prayers during the inaugural raya morning without mak :(

As time flies, this has become a routine. I no longer miss mak's absence and mak too has forgotten about how it feels to have me during raya morning.
I am glad that mak now has others to accompany her to the mosque (i.e mua's sister in law, nieces) I, on the other hand is still incapable to attend the raya prayer since the 2 younger kiddies are still too little to 'behave' themselves in the surau.

I am grateful, and I thank my other half for never failed giving me the opportunity to join the annual raya visit routine with the Hosnih's clan. But the visiting group however has now become smaller .. first without my siblings (when come to their spouse's raya turn..) .then the cousins Nonoi and Titi-Puberty tore us apart, they too are in the same shoe, we are now belongs to another family name in-laws. This year group is without them & I miss having them for raya.

Marriage has made us prioritze things differently in life . We have additional role & responsibility towards our other half and in laws. But I have never forgotten about the good times I had with these two gorgeous lady.

The reason I am writing this is because there are posibilities of change to my routine again next year..and I embrace the change positively this round before it too become another norms.
Whatever the routine is going to be, I wish all the people I love are still with me.
Arent we all blessed? Thank you Almighy for having me in this wonderful journey called life.

To Nonoi & Titi. While we have additional role to play (wifey, daughter in law, mum)& mostly now celebrating the festive season & outings with our other half & in laws, let's remind each other (especially me, being the only girl) should we failed to continue performing our duty as a daughter. I truly miss spending time with both of you crazy cousins though...don't you guys ever leave me in your prayer ye...*sebak*

Eid mubarak

Aidilfitri...datang lagi

Day 11th of Ramadhan (alhamdulillah)..the raya preparation begins for some. I've decided it'll be more for the kids this round. 

After sahur bibik pointed out to me 'dik, semua orang ada benda baru untuk hari raya, adik enggak punya apa?'.. I know she wasn't referring to the Baju raya (coz ours has arrived all the way from Jakarta!) but she must be referring to my brother's, mum's  new sofa, new furniture, house repaint, additional units of air conditioned etc...

I wanted to respond to her but I realize that it wasn't necessary. I am just grateful that I still can afford to 'support' my commitments. Cukuplah... I don't have to sweat the small stuff, I don't intend to have open house pun..hihihi (so jangan tanya ye kawan2) Not in 3 years time agaknya. I have prioritize things and even the spoilt staircase fix (wooden panel badly damaged by termites attack) is not in my list.
Nanti lah dulu..

Wait. I sounded so 'emo' today.. ! Ramadhan can be quite an emotional moment.. And I think I know why.. Last ramadhan was a tough one for me.. Syukur alhamdulillah this year was much better (thank you Almighty swt for your blessing) when things are smooth sailing, I'll reminisce how I have survived the rough ride... there has ALWAYS been a silver lining for every dark clouds... It is so damn true. Terima kasih Tuhan... I know I don't deserve this.

I feel blessed this Ramadhan...I still have the people I love around me.. I still have my other half, parents, in laws, kids, brothers (except for Abg Lan in Saudi), nephews, nieces and all. And yes, if this is fated to be my last Ramadhan... Make it my best Ramadhan ever Ya Allah....

P/s bibik: saya tak pregnant la.

I miss you

Owh... How I miss you

I just miss
Having another heart beat inside of me
Another soul accompanying me
When I'm having sleepless night
Talking to you my little sweethearts

I just miss
Having tiny little one in my arms
I pledge to keep them safe from harm
The sweet smell of their ears
Which always bring me to tears

I just miss
Having my babies around me
As they have now grown up
Flawlessly cheer my day
My pillar of strength they are
In their very own way

I am grateful to you the Almighty
For blessing me with these wonderful babies
Every night and day I pray
For You to protect my babies
Bless them, Ya Allah..
Bless them all the way

T@lentcorp-mari pulang ke Malaysia saudara, saudari

"I had never contemplated staying abroad ... Malaysia is home (to me)," says the affable Johan Mahmood Merican. In so many ways, the 37-year-old is the ideal person to be tasked with retaining and drawing talent back to Malaysia. As the recently-appointed head of Talent Corp Malaysia Bhd, that is exactly his mandate.

As I was writing this, I am almost finished reading a book written by Ustaz Hasrizal “Aku terima Nikahnya”. There is one chapter in his book, where he has written about how challenging life is back home in Malaysia compared to living abroad.
He was reminiscing about the quality time he had with his family during their stay in UK and Scotland in comparison to the life in “tanahairku’. This post is about T@lencopr and life Malaysia.
“ It’s almost 9.00pm there and you are still in the office?” asked my brother who called me all the way from middle east. Yes, life is not a bed of roses and I had to carry the guilt conscience with me every day to them…”them” are referring to my children and my parents. I owe them big time! I carry the title “mother” with me, yes, Roles & Responsibility Roles=Mother, Responsibility=Work (?) *sigh*

Friends living abroad have time to walk in a park, travel to other countries for holiday, showered themselves with branded item (since income ratio is still affordable to purchase the luxury stuff) and many more. On the other hand, I have always console myself by saying…I have my parents less than 5 minutes drive, asam laksa few blocks away, sunny weather all year round and teh tarik round the clock!

T@lentcorp aims for drawing talent Malaysians to balik kampung, to serve our nation as we strive together to collectively make it a better place for all. They even established a special package programme for them and following are the latest :-

1) An optional Flat Tax Rate of 15% for Employment Income for five (5) years.
2) Tax Exemption for all personal effects brought into Malaysia.
3) 2 locally assembled/manufactured Completely-Knocked-Down (CKDs) vehicles tax-free.
4) Foreign spouse/children given Permanent Resident (PR) status within six (6) months upon submission of complete application to Immigration Department of Malaysia.
5) Foreign born children or children already studying in an international stream overseas are allowed to enroll in any international school of choice in Malaysia.

Whoa…!!! after all the ‘luxury’ life abroad, the government even created a welcoming pack for our expat friends.

T@lentcorp has identified that 3 buckets that attracts Malaysian working abroad :-

a) economic (higher pay),

b) professional development

c) macro-issues such as public transport, education for their children and all that.

Looks like people like us who have been loyal to the country has to work even harder to compete with this expats once their are back....

Reference to Item (3) - Abang Lan, we are looking forward for the X6 itu.

This I promise you!

Never have I curse in my life. Yes, one of my big 'pantang' is cursing (mencarut). Honestly, I just couldn't even re-quote it alternate to it would be spelling the word out. An example:-

"OMG she actually said ba-alif-ba-ya tadi!".

As I have reach my late 30s (mak aii! tua nya aku!) I do not recall cursing people intentionally (unintentionally ada ke? jika ada saya minta maaf). InsyAllah I will carry this value to my grave..(bukan susah sangat pun, right?) You will hear words like 'mangkuk' once in a while from me but when I overheard my eldest telling the younger sister "You idiot, dumb!"..phuh, makcik rasa macam nak makan orang!

Mintak maaf, I just cant tolerate people who bad mouthing or cursing. I am far from perfect myself but it's not that hard refraining yourself from spitting those dirty words out. Don't make it a habit. Preventing verbal violence is everyone's duty. We should start with ourself, kan?

I will learn to deal with the jibe of ill mannered people who would blindingly make obvious comments about other people or even me.
So my son... MANNERS MATTERS! Ibu doakan anak2 ibu dilindungiNya selalu dan dijauhkan dari perkara yang tidak baik, insyaAllah.

To my sisters....

Dedicated to my sisters (you know who you are), this too shall pass, insyaAllah

Into each life
A little rain must fall sometimes
It help us to appreciate the bright sunshine
and creates colourful rainbows for all
But what if it pours and pours without restraint?
Causing countless suffering and endless pain?
That is the time to learn
The virtue of patience
and always believe
Allah is always with us

My prayer with you girls.
