So we’re already 23 days in 2013.

I still haven’t figured out or map out how my 2013 gonna look like…

I even planned my leave and trainings just recently. Whereby others have it done in Dec 2012…

But, one thing for sure, whatever awaits me in 2013 and beyond – “Khair, insyaAllah” 🙂 coz Allah knows best!

Khair, insyaAllah. Khair, insyaAllah – will be my ‘mantra’ always…

P/s: there’s a story behind “Khair, insyaAllah” told by Fira (ouh I miss her a lot!) Moaybe i’ll update it in other post.

— “Khair” means ‘good’, ‘baik’


It’s been 435 days since i last edit my wishlist (or goals in life?)….

I never had one before.. Thanks to a friend to actually remind me to have one.. The rationale is for us to see it and work to achieve those wishes..

Honestly, I don’t buy it in the first place. It’s like for me, it will be just a list.. And I will never achieve those..

Today, I re-open the list… I have achieved a few (maybe 2 or 3)… Alhamdulillah.. And it strikes me that nothing in this world is impossible. It may sound impossible, but, if we tried, and pray and ask from Allah… InsyaAllah we’ll get what’s BEST for us…

Your Lord said: “Pray to Me, and I will accept your prayers. Surely those who wax too proud to worship Me shall enter Hell, utterly abased.” [Surah Ghafir 40:60]


When talked about ‘rizq’ or rezeki, we (especially me!) tend to look it as in the forms of money or materials. (i.e. big house, big car, promotions…)
Then there are also…

  • Health
  • Children
  • A good day in the office
  • Senses
  •  Happy family
  •  Etc….

Yes, those are rizq from Allah (too!) for us here, in this world..

But then, Allah is the MOST Generous, He also provides us with rizq that benefits us for Akhirah:

  •  Allah allows you wake up at night for Tahajudd
  •  Able to catch congregation prayers in the office surau (especially for the ladies)
  •  Opportunities to gain Islamic Knowledge
  •  Time & Energy for dakwah and charity
  •  Allah tests you only for you to get closer to Him
  •  And please, do add more to it..

So people, when there’s opportunity to increase your Akhirah’s shares, please grab those.. Those are rizq from Allah… He may not increase our wealth in this Dunya, but insyaAllah in Akhirah =)

And for all the rizq for the dunya that he provides us, cherish it, use it wisely..use it to the benefits of Ummah..and for Akhirah…

Lastly…Always..Always BE THANKFUL to ALLAH…

“O Allah! Assist me in remembering You, in thanking You, and in worshiping You in the best of manners”
[Sahih Ahmad 5:245, Sahih abu Dawud 2:86, an-Nasa’i]

p/s: Alhamdulillah… my two Murabbi safely delivered two cute babies last week.. May they become a soleh and solehah caliph of Allah.. Ameen =)


I’ve added new page up  there – quickLinks.

couldn’t find a catchy word for it….ahah..

it provides links to my previous posts on food/recipes, and i’m sharing my “BG” notes insyaAllah..

on the “BG” notes…

it is actually an initiative (well not really an initiative…perasan je) started when i ‘m sharing the notes with izyan noor when she was in Brussels..

but due to the fact i’m so lazy to switch on the  laptop (yes, i’m that lazy..coz it’s heavy and big) only managed to type a few..

in need of the new iPad or Asus zenbook..  😛 (anyone so baik to buy me one? eheh)

anyways, insyaAllah, i’ll try to add more as we go along, please make Dua for me to stay istiqamah in doing this..

this way, i’m actually revising what i’ve learnt, and insyaAllah, to practice them as well..

have a blessed, safe, and great week ahead =)

When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our answers were things like astronaut, president, or in my case-princess.

When we were ten, they asked again and we answered – rock star, cowboy, or in my case, gold medalist. But now that we’ve grown up, they want a serious answer. Well, how ’bout this: who the hell knows?!

This isn’t the time to make hard and fast decisions, its time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere chill. Fall in love – a lot. Major in philosophy ’cause there’s no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind. Then change it again, because nothing is permanent – Jessica’s graduation speech from Twilight Eclipse

this is going to be a quite boring, long post..ahah.. if you click “more”.. bear with it..
