kawin present

some extra wedding money = a toyota sewing machine-though not the same model. i just snatched an almost look alike machine from google.

huhu. i am simply not a jewelery person, and they cannot provide the same excitement for its harder to lose this big thing! i was eyeing for another brand but had to wait for a week for that. a week is too long.

also, during nikah i got a watch instead of a ring. its your wedding; why not get what you love eh?

i was saying to husband, this is like a playstation for me. cant wait to make a right mess in his room with fabrics.

its 2 weeks tomorrow post-wedding.woa. that quick? the preparation for wedding felt so slow, with all the suspense and drama almost killing me.
am adjusting to a new place, new roommate, and housemates (mama, papa, oren, and...balqis the naughty niece) yes i am staying with my in laws for the time being- something some find interesting to know how its going.
so far so good!

some days i even get breakfast ready, and most of the time i get back from work dinner is ready too. hah! i do feel quite embarassed for not using the kitchen just yet. in all honesty i'm excited at the prospect of serving husband something (most likely burnt) to eat. just havent got round to adjusting how and when is appropriate to use the kitchen! sleeping habit from singlehood-waking up 10 minutes before naik kereta time is hard to change. this morning it was quite a big feat for me to wake up at 7.35!

im trying to chip in with the house chores-we'll see how it goes! very grateful that in-laws are not scrunitizing me 24-7.they are pretty laid back people. and husband have developed a habit that needs to be kicked out immediately.
sleeping excessively. we would plan to clean the room, watch a movie, upload our pictures, cook, go to classes. yet we'd end up sleeping after isya', usually after talking and entertaining Balqis who will go home at 8 ish or 9 ish.
then we wake up and say 'whatt we didnt get anything done-again! and ok see you tonight!' time just flyy.

i was nervous before marriage, but once you are in it, you learn to adjust accordingly. and i see now marriage is a good opportunity for you to become better Muslims inshaAllah, because your life doesn't revolve around you anymore.

as this is my first proper commitment to someone, i find it an exhilarating experience. yesterday i looked at this guy, this stranger i've come to know and love within the last few months and think 'wow. he'll be there, inshaAllah till the end of my life.'

the angel speaks

When making d'ua for someone the angel will reply
'O Allah, provide him/her with something better.'

i see a tiny light flickering with work. hoorah!

wee editors are like little elves. we look at the smallest things. we are not seen.and when we do a good job we go home singing.


Dont forget to praise the Lord and make dua a lot during this special 10 days before Eid. It is such blessed timing beloved by Allah, the Prophet and his companions.The companions would say takbeer loudly-so as to proclaim their faith, and as an act of worship during this time. and they would increase their ibadaah during this time.

May Allah bless you, whoever you are and grant you hidayaah. May Allah grant you jannah.ameen.

right timing!

i was and probably still am visibly stressed.

a friend passed me a memo-

'don't be upset. everything will be better.'

thanks Allah; you know how much I needed that.

oh kindy

Overheard an Indian teacher at a dominantly Chinese kindy speaking Manglish like her 4 year old students.

She has been overpowered by the little monsters and didn't even see it coming.

The danger of TESL is your students slang might just be caught by you.

Next thing you know, you're saying 'how are you ahhh' and 'why is your hair so messy aahhh'.

teacher aahhh, get serious!

wah 12 days left. time felt so slow before. and now it seems so fast.

i still have few invitations to send, and looking forward for a week off soon.

meanwhile- the work just keep rolling in. whoaa. sometimes my eyes just glazed over them-they seemed like a big blur to me esp. now its closer to the wedding.hee.

next week i will take 2 days off starting thursday so i can pamper my hair- my rare indulgence once in a while. i wont do all the mandi bunga stuff. johnson's johnson has been good enough ay ay!

i wonder if i will cry or choke during nikah..hmm..

may Allah make it easy..
