salams dari seremban,
as i turned away from the surburbia of petaling jaya and flee away oncall as a daughter to my parents,
i get a weekend birthday away in the next door state of negeri sembilan.
two days after my official 23 years of life on this mother earth,
i am writing in how i have had a very meaningful day on the 18th october this yr.
it rendered me speechless many of a times.
i guess a talkative n bubbly person when too shocked or way pass their happy threshold,
they are thrown off the grid of words.
i turn one kind of giggly.
Well as an ustaz once said on ikim, the capacity of words from the mouth, is too scarce to describe the feelings of the heart.
the heart holds things too complex tht the mind cant digest into words.
i textd Bestie Mimi at the end of the day,
"I couldnt ask for more."
Since I was a little child,
as being the only child.
birthdays have always. always been a huge thing.
(well not as huge as ballroom dances and big posters plastered on walls--but big enuf for a lil girl like me)
i have finally learnt the essence of quality trumping over quantity
not saying tht i havent been aware of this before.
an not saying i am new to this concept either.
as my mom says,
"masa mama dulu xpernah ade cake"
added with eka's call,
"i noe how big birthdays are to u,unlik me,"
they understood how googoogaga i go over birthdays.
terima kaseh mama n eka :*
thank u Allah for waking me up in the middle of the night to pickup eka's call.
as i anticipated it all thru the day.
but wen i heard her sore throat,
i just got worried,
and doa she gets well really soon!
even tyra pun wasnt really well these past few days :((
there was another person tht was so eager to wish me these past few weeks,
but wen the tym came,
but I have finally felt the sweetness of bersyukur.
i noe there was a hikmah.
and u cant imagine how much happier i feel wen my birthday passed and i never got the wish :))
all those so called "fun" "crazy" tings tht i always dambakan (ohkayh,melayu bombastic)
i have finally come to peace tht those things arent necessary,
just lik my blogpost header.
*a gift is not necessary for ur survival*
so thank u for making me understand tht!
so all in all,
the Best gift of the day was,
gift of feeling kesyukuran.
Lahaw la wala quwatabillah hil aliyyilazim :))
i feel just so overjoyed,
even though the :"curse" of my birthday had befallen.
wat "curse" u ask?
it is a "curse" that on my birthday,
banyak CLASS! n confirm therell b a presentation.
its always a busy day.
i think i noe y.
because Allah noes tht i love being kept busy.
i kinda die of nothingness,
and RARELY get bored in nothingness, (as u wud noe,refering to lesser bloposts compared to my younger days)
thank u bestie tyra for being the first to ajak me out for my birthday treat. :))
and cant wait for bi's lunch treat too! hehe!
|lunchgang and i!|
thank u lunchgang for bringing me out proper for a lunch!
a lunch lik non other at my fav spot!!!
cos i noe some of u guys rnt really a big fans of sushi.
thank u classmates for singing me as usual at a surprise.
okayh. the list of thank yous can go on and on.
lets just say,
my birthday just isnt quite over yet.
bcos everyday u are rebirth.
rejuvenated and sculptured into a better muslimah daily insyaAllah :)
besides im already off busy-in with a seminar tomoro.

and save my energy for this evenings drive back to pj. :)
thank u everyone.
even if u dint read ur name here,
u have to noe,
u r insyaAllah in my doas.
and tht is all i can give u all back in return for ur beautiful wishes and tots with me on the day 23 yrs ago, i was born.
the day i cried out loud to the world,
n i teared back again the end of the day,
23 yrs later.
