His precious clinging hand in mine...

Little Hands at age 13 months old

My little hands play patty-cake
They peek-a-boo and wave...
They catch me while I learn to walk
And splash me as I bathe...

My little hands reach up to you
For hugs before I sleep...
And fold together when I pray
The God my soul to keep...

My little hands are tiny now
But yours will serve to guide me...
And when I'm grown I'll still reach out
And know you're right beside me.

A note from a daughter to her parents..

The dim light and the cloudy night changed my lovely day to melancholy night. I feel like missing..missing my dearly parents so much especially my mum. Thinking about the thousands distance apart never make me feel better. When I was on holiday back home in January, I still remember when the first time we met up at Kota Bharu airport after four years apart. My heart throbbed to watch them ageing. How time flies, I left them when I still their sole daughter, and after four years I came back as a mum. Bringing a grandchild to them.

My parents expression just speechless. My dad kept staring straight on my face for quite sometimes. He took his ageing pause and kept studying his beloved daughter face. When I asked him why he looked at me like that, and the answer he gave me was, he almost forgot how my face was. In his memories, I was at age 28 years old. The age when I flew out from his nest to built my own life with my newly wed husband. Left alone my mum expression. We bursted into tears and hugged one another tightly.

One month was like one week. It has never been enough to spend such a little time with the family. Though I still appreciate it. From time to time, I received a bad news, the news about decease. Until now, I still keeping my fingers crossed so that none of my closed family will be leaving me for good before I have a chance to help them out. Especially my emak and ayah. I know I am a lucky person to have a husband and my own flesh and blood, Haris in this foreign land to accompany me and thanks God for my boy boisterous attitude that sometimes will cheer me up. Nevertheless, the lonely feeling comes and goes parallel with the time. I am a human being after all. Sigh!

Luckily for me to still have parents. Even though sometimes I just too stubborn to appreciate them in the best way I have to, but God still giving me chances to serve them before it is too late. Truthfully, I do not know how much time left for me to do so.Sigh!

In this world, parents are the most sincere person to their kids!

InsyaAllah, one fine day the moment will come. The time when we will back for good and we will be gathered as one happy family like we were before...InsyaAllah.

~Ibu, kau ampunilah dosaku,andainya aku pernah menghiris hatimu..restumu yang amat aku harapkan kerana disitu letak syurgaku...those lyric keeps reverberating in my head and it is really meaningful indeed!~ Ya Allah..ko kasihanilah ibubapaku sebagai mana mereka menyayangi aku...amin ya rabbal alamin~

Ya Allah..ko kasihanilah ibubapaku sebagai mana mereka menyayangi aku...amin ya rabbal alamin~

Bath time

Is there any competitions for splash time? If yes, haris wants to join them...hehehhee

souvenier from Volendam

When we visited Volendam, I mentioned about the photo's taken in traditional dutch costume at one of the studio overthere. Here is the pic. The image is not good enough since this photo has taken on the photo itself.

At Quick burger on the last sunday. Early evening treat by papa after mumma and Haris complained about 'boredom'.

Hmm..I was thinking and planning about booking an outdoor shooting for us as a family. I found a very talented photographer and perhaps will book the session in September, after fasting month..InsyaAllah.

learning by heart and rote

By this age, I can say Haris learns by heart and rote to memorize something so that he can repeat all things without thinking, like we an adult do. Haris understands and catches up many words tremendously. I tried a couple of times to test him with the vocab.

Let's say when I said ball-he gave me the ball, when I said cuddly, he gave me his blue cuddly blanket and when I said kiss, he smoothed all over my face.

And sometimes when we are going out, I will say - Haris and mama are going out. So, even though he was in the midst of playing, he will come over to me and said 'mumma mumma mumma'. So I will brace him in my arms while putting clothes on. I will keep talking to him like, clothes on, into pram and going out. He was so happy with that! Such a brilliant baby. Nevertheless, when he was playing with papa, and I disturbed him by saying 'mumma', he will look at me with his cheeky face and he chose to say papa. Notty okay!

It's ok baby..the most important thing is, you know how to say mama already!
...It just you like watching me mad everytime you said papa..

Ooeuwww the birds

Just ask him 'where is the birds?' and he will give this look while saying euwwwww...and looking for the birds happily!

At age one year old

Mumma and baby

Mumma and baby...I was meant to say a big baby!
