29th July 2002 ... that's the day we'd been waiting for .. a newborn girl was on her way out to this world .. not thru the normal channel ... she came thru the cutting of my ' belly ' ... C-section !!
29th July 2010 ... today ... she's 8 years old .
Happy 8th Birthday Mimi !!
I've been searching for her birthday present for a couple of days but still didn't buy anything since I don't know what to get for her . Yesterday while chatting with her I asked her what she wanted for her birthday ..
"Anything . " she said .
" Then I'll buy you a pencil . " I said .
" I don't want a pencil . " she replied .
" Then what do you want ? " I was hoping for her answer ..
" I want a LAPTOP ! "
Oh no ... oh boy .... I shouldn't have asked ....
Then last night before going to bed I said to Mimi ..
" Tahun ni tak payah bagi hadiahlah . "
" Tahun depan bagi 2 hadiah . " she said dengan selambanya ... hahahaha .
Anyhow ... All the best of luck to my youngest daughter....
Happy Birthday Mimi !!
Mama loves you forever .

I still remember 2 months ago as I was searching for korean seaweed at one of the hypermarkets in Kuantan , a lady customer who was beside me asked : " Berapa kilo boleh beli gula ni ? " I then replied " Saya tak tau . " I am not a regulat sugar user , 1 kg sugar can last up to 3 months in a glass jar in my kitchen . No one favours sweet hot tea/coffee/milo etc . So, we can live without coarse sugar . However , I pity those who sell kuih-muih and other food which contains sugar because they have to get special letter stating they are sellers who need more sugar than 2kg per person per trip to the shop .
Then , all of a sudden the price of coarse sugar increased with the increase of petrol . I don't remember the current sugar selling price but is has increased . So surprise ( actually tak surprise pun ) right there and then , sugar is abundant and everywhere to be found , no more 2kg / person . Shopkeepers smile broadly selling sugar as they are now getting more profits from the hike in sugar price ..........
That's coarse sugar ....
Even though I am not a sugar ' addict ' , I am a high sugar level carrier in my blood ... in other words I am a diabetic patient . It's been 8 years now that I take glucopage 850mg pills twice daily to control my sugar level . I have to refrain myself from drinking sweet drinks and have to avoid eating sweet food including starchy rice , noodles and other malay delicacies . Very hard to discipline myself since being a diabetic person I tend to favour sweet food and once in a while I'm craving for those icing and ice-cream, feeling like it's such a great pleasure to taste those cream from heavenly sweety shops .
I have tried so many other alternative medicines and herbs but ... I think the greatest cure could only be secured from ME , MY BODY , MY STRONG DETERMINATION .... I myself know what my body could eat and drink .. hopefully by writing this entry I'll be a strong person with a better self discipline to help myself avoiding those sweet but dangerous food from circulating in my blood vessels InsyaAllah .
That's all folks ...... sugar and sugar level .......... bye for now !!

Today's blog is about the stinky durian which Kijal is said to grow and produce the best durian since ages .
Yesterday , we decided to go to Kijal old town / village to taste the fresh durian right from the durian stall along the roadside . We chose the one opposite the Petronas petrol station and oh boy... parked our car and straight to the stall and just like any other food stalls , a table and a few chairs were ready for us ... we started with 3 medium sized durians and one more and more and more and a bit later Zaid , Azra and Umair joined us and a few more durians were cut open by the kakak seller ... so so soooo yummyyy .... and to my surprise when the kakak mentioned the price for 12 yummy but stinky durians was only RM20 ... and when I said ... " RM 20 aje ." she then said " Kalau nak bayar lebih boleh aje . " .... hahahaha ... for me it's very very cheap and next week I plan to go there again InsyaAllah.
The stinky durian is of course the KIng of Fruit but I just can't eat too much since my blood pressure can't tolerate the gas from the stinky durian .
Got back and checked my bp and ... wwoowww ..... I was flat feeling so aching all over my body and felt like all my energy was all absorbed by the stinky durian ......
Stinky but Yummy !!!

" Bagi pihak keluarga Dalillah Tamrin saya ingin memaklumkan arwah baru sahaja meninggal harap dapat maklumkan kepada yang lain dan maafkan segala kesalahannya .. "
I was shivering while reading that sms and after paying the toll I said to myself " I have to stop for a while . "..... I stopped my car by the roadside and read the sms again and again and just couldn't believe what I was reading ... I was almost there to meet up with her but she's then no longer alive ... as I continued driving my tears rolled down my cheeks and I couldn't stop crying .... so many questions arose from my heart ... let me alone know what those questions were as it's between me and the Al Mighty Allah .. Oh Allah , please forgive me ., only YOU knew how I felt at that sad moment ...
We then together with Falizah's friend ( she's from KL ) headed towards Dalilah's Mom's house in Labohan Dagang , Banting .Aas we reached her mom's house I could feel the sadness all around .. Not long after that jenazah Dalilah arrived from the hospital . She was placed on the bed and I had my first and last chance to meet up with her and I kissed her cheeks and I whispered to her who was lying still , not a single move anymore ...
" Akak sayang Dalilah , semoga syurga buat Dalillah di sana .... kita jumpa lagi di sana nanti InsyaAllah . "....
That was it .. I stopped right there and my tears came running down from my eyes and there I was sobbing and sobbing in tears .... her face was so calm, peaceful and so clean as if she was sleeping .
We waited until the ' kafan' process finished and didn't wait for the burial since it was almost 4pm .
I've known Dalillah thru blogsphere and made contact with her once in a while but now it's all over ... she's no longer to be seen in blogs world and FB ... a very strong woman she was .. fighting her illness till the end ..
May she rest in peace and may Allah grant her with Paradise , InsyaAllah .
Al Fatihah .
This particular song lyric was written by Dalillah a few months ago .....

Love for a grandchild is infinity ... the simplest example ... Mimi the Maksu can only drink 2 small bottles of Vitagen perday ( since more than 2 is considered spending more money per month on Vitagen ) but my grandson Umair can drink as many bottle as he likes per day ... can't decline his request to have Vitagen at any time of the day ... hurrmmmm... so that's it .. I love my grandson more than I can say ....

It's Saturday again , still has no plan for today but we had a great time yesterday in Kuantan but I'm not gonna blog about it ... it's lots of fun hanging around and shopping .
Today's post is about people that sometimes come into our life without we expected to be close to them but at the same time those people do not feel okay to us as time goes by ..., I am sure all of us have experienced this uneasy feeling towards our new friends when they started to act weirdly and only talking to us when they feel right to them , I hate these kind of people ...
Well , it's life people say and so it is ... have to hang on ... or ... may be hang up ... put a stop to them ... sounds cruel ..... I might just push the stop button ... or give them another chance ....

Then the other night Maya saw the same CRV parked just outside our fence but we didn't dare to ask....
Then last night at 3 am I was out to get into my car to fetch Maya coming back from KL , there he was again in the same CRV and parked right in front of my house . When I was about to get into my car , I saw the driver moved his hands meaning he was awoke at that wee hours . When we came back a few minutes later , he was still there .. at 5 am I slid open the windows curtains and the CRV was gone ....
Just wonder .....
- who is that man ??
- why is he there ?
- Is he a spy ??? To spy on who ???
We'll see tonite .... Is he here again ??? Very very mystery .......
The first one that I encountered was a makcik wearing kain sarong and baju kurung Kedah and this makcik always wanders around the village and once I saw her urinating standing on the roadside ..... mmmmmm .
The second one was the Pakcik Plastic ( I wrote about him in one of my entries ) . This afternoon I saw him crossing the main road in the middle of the town with many more plastics wrapped around his body .
The third one I saw today was a young man wearing white jubah and kopiah together with a cloth on his head and also zikr beads in his hands . All of a sudden ke raised his hands by the roadside and started preaching to no one near him . He continued preaching by facing the sky .
3 persons in one same area .. I can't think of how many other people with the same 'sickness' can be found all over the country and in this entire world ... pity, pity very pity......

Today , I lost another good friend Mariam Osman due to prolonged coughing ...
I've been friends for almost 17 years with both of them . They were both very very gentle and humble . I regard both of them as my elder sisters as they were always giving me advice , to keep my deeds and faith just to Allah .
May Allah grant them with paradise , Ameen .
Al fatihah ...... goodbye my friends !!

Actually I didn't watch a single game this time around .. didn't really care about WC , my interest in soccer has faded away , don't know why ..
Anyhow, I' m so so glad it's all over . I hate to see people stay up just for the sake of football .. I hete toread here and there about football . . . all talking about football as if there's no story other than football .. but , my number ONE hatred is when many become slaves of that silly Paul the Octopus .. syirik is everywhere just because of an octopus .. people gamble everywhere , betting game after game .. .
Soooooo ... it's all over now ... let's get back to work !!
Waka waka .. eeee ... waka waka .. if I dance this song everyday , I'll be slim and sexy like Shakira ..hahahaha .
