Happenings....

Nov. 7th. 2006..baby Fariz Azim arrived to Ritz and Aida ~ 3.64kg. Congratulations !! Also heard Rawyah had her baby also a boy 3 days earlier. Pending delivery anytime this 2 weeks will be Shakiroh and Ustazah Aida..both expecting their 5th child.

Nov. 15th. evening, Azlan went to pick-up our new car..Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd. 4.7 Litre the color is Metallic Gray. This after contemplating very, very hard on how, what and when we should get a 2nd. car. Finally..after going up and down the list of pro's and cons' and which type of car..we settled for the above. Not too big..not too small..brand new so insyaállah less headache with maintenance...hopefully we can keep up the steam to get it cleaned often..Till today, still haven't figured out many of the gadgets that it has...anyway..it sure is a good feeling... alhamdulillah...

Hannah had soccer match this evening...yay..her team won 5-1. She was the goalie..specifically she told us that the "1"passed thru' Eva when she was manning the goal while she managed to save all the attacks within her time. The season will be till end of Dec'06.

Nov. 16th...had lunch at Ana & Mat Shah's house..just managed to bring the Banana cake.. it was abit dry..got to adjust the moisture content next time around. As usual..ana had her table full...laksam, laksa Johor, mee rebus or udang of sorts, nasi dagang, nasi impit, soup daging..she is an established cook. Whatever her äir tangan"are, sure will have that tastiness... I wish I can have that ease of whipping whatever come to mind instead of pondering and planning before it finally materialized...

In the evening..another öpen house"at Azli & Kamisah home, again mee rebus, nasi dagang, nasi impit..the raya fare..mind you..kamisah makes her own noodles or mee....usually during all these get togethers there are bound to be incidences...not with 2 MJ's as we keep our distances since we cannot agree to look eye to eye it's better to keep apart.. but rather with someone else.. either i am being overly sensitive or the whole thing is just a spur of the moment thing meaning..I just had to butt in and correct the info being relayed..I was met with a raised eyebrow..the chagrin probably due to me saying that the info was actually found printed in the day's paper and slightly different in nature that what is being said...but ada betul juga kata orang melayu...cakap siang pandang2, cakap malam dengar2... most likely it means take a pause when we want to say something and make sure whatever it is will not have added MSG to make it taste better... but being human sometimes we want to be the know it all...or source of information or the one people will seek out...frankly...if so..make sure the info is up-to-date... accuracy is important as we do not know what mistake can lead us to inconveniences later on....
Otherwise..it was a wonderful evening..this is the only time we have the chance to meet and catch up with each other... kesian hosts...sampai midnite baru guests start to leave...

Nov. 17th...Azlan and I drop by baby Fariz home to get a glimpse of the cutsie baby boy..cair hati rasanya..bertuah daddy dan ibu Fariz....diberi makan lagi..malu2 kucing je sebenarnya.. Firdaus buat roti canai from scratch so got to taste that..next ada juga ketupat palas that his grandmother made.. hai..kena kuat kan resolve nak achieve more culinary skills...

Nov. 18th...today after the chat with Gee..start masak for lunch... Ayam masak asam with some daun limau purut and kantan put in...again ikan merah masak kicap...and for tea..mee hoon goreng... well the energy last for quite some time..

On the way to pick-up Hannah and Zayd from English tuition..almost run-over some lady joggers... it was dark and I had looked right first and than left and almost step on my accelerator before I heard the scream... I wonder how was it that I did not see her the first time..her clothes were dark and the light outside was dark..I was absentminded rushing for time..nearly jumped out of my skin when I heard the scream..why she should cross over infront of the car I was not sure..I remember from long time ago I was taught and I also taught my kids...NEVER to cross in front of a vehicle and in between vehicle or even the back of the vehicle..sometimes the driver sees a blind spot and it's too bad..if he/she did not see us crossing.. It was scary but I hope the lady remembers the incidence and be more careful when she jogs in the evening and as for me...should I look right first and than left and right again before moving??? Alhamdulilah nothing untowards happen and may Allah will shower us his protection always...

So...tomorrow another day begins...As for tonite..can we clear our heart and forgive everyone before we close our eyes for sleep ??? Will someday relay the story behind this missive... got to go find it again..the story happens during Rasullah saw time when he pointed out a man entering the mosque to the sahabahs saying that the man is for sure promised a place in heaven...

To forgive and forget....
