more than any materialistic gains

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Okay, the title of this post isn't the most original title since I stole it from one of Asyraf's caption bahaha but I think we all can start guessing where this post leads right ? 

I think after like spending a lot and I mean, A LOT of time with just my loved ones, I have come to realize that I am so lucky to still have my family & loved ones around. Can you imagine the people without parents or the ones who have lost their siblings or the ones that were left at an orphanage ? Imagine the pain they have to endure.. :( 

So, when I look at my family spending time together or when I'm just lazying around with Asyraf's family, I just start to think, "Alhamdulillah". Pure happiness is really just having your loved ones around. I mean, as much as Chanel, Balenciaga, Prada and all those materialistic things put a big smile on my face, they eventually leave sad remarks on my parents' wallets hahaha ! Having my loved ones around is FOC and it makes me smile too ! I guess there are some things that money can't buy :)

Nadal, I love you just as much, I promise but I couldn't find any nice photos of us ahahaha sorry :p

bringing back the 1920s

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

"Why got no surprise party for me ?" "Eee boy, you're 26 already lah not 6 !"

Was the exact conversation he had with his dad over our Japanese dinner on his birthday bahahaha ! Thinks he's so special... Geez, baby.

Yup, last weekend my family and I threw a surprise birthday party for my one and only with a 1920s theme. It was just a small gathering with some close family friends, his family and a couple of his childhood friends. Risky moved I pulled though because three days before, he had crazy 5 am flights. Having to wake up at 3 am three days in a row, drove both of us nuts ahahaha. I try my level best to wake up and talk to him every time before he departs even if it means I have to set my alarm to ring at 3 am... Sheesh, wonder why I love you so much. I still continue my sleep after he leaves for flight though haha so it probably drove him nuts more that it did to me. I wanted to choke him when he said he felt like he was too tired to come for dinner that night. That guy ah -_-

So, I let the big ma'am, his mum, do all the talking and making sure he shows up hehe. Hope you had fun at all 3 celebrations for you ! Feeling like a lil kid yet ? Haha. Let's pray this is your last birthday single. Who knows if you're lucky enough, next birthday present got wife ? Ok, I won't talk about it until I finish my SPM... *rolls eyes*

Don't expect too much next year though.. Maybe we'll just stay in, get some popcorn and watch all my your favourite movies at home with the whole bunch instead ?

japanese special

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh 

Today, as I've posted on my instagram, is you-know-who's birthday. First ever birthday celebrated together and I hope there will be more to look forward to in the future. 

I hope you enjoyed our Japanese cuisine dinner tonight and I'm glad that I was a part of it. So many things that I would like to say to you but the most important thing is, I'd like you to know how grateful I am we met and making me the happiest I've ever been. I know it's not always going to be a bed of roses but I hope we will always work everything out. May Allah always bless you for making so many people around you so happy. Happy 26th Birthday, my love.

out of date

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh 

2 days of school and I'm not complaining.... yet bahaha. But no, seriously. I am not going to complain. Although I don't have my usual clique as my classmates, it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. Now I'm classmates with people I never even actually talk to but hey, it's always good to meet new people right ? Remember my New Year resolution ? Never to forget ? Mhmm, so far so good. Pftsh it's only been 4 days since 2014 hahaha but I've added a new one on the list. Keeping myself away from social networks during school days. 

Some of you probably think it's ridiculous but it's not ! I haven't been on any of my social networks until yesterday night. Do you know what I discovered ? Without the distraction of having to scroll through my Instagram timeline, retweet tweets on Twitter, watch pointless videos on Youtube, I had too much time to spare in one day ! Though, I do feel a bit outdated... And how did I manage to hold myself back ? I completely disregarded my phone. Switched it off and my parents kept it else where. As much as I hate living without my phone, I can't afford any distraction. Not this year. Big exam means big effort and big sacrifices to achieve huge success, insyaaAllah.

No iPhone to take proper selfie but see ? Still looking as lively as ever #rare

ultimate love

"And [yet], among the people are those who take other than Allah as equals [to Him]. They love them as they [should] love Allah . But those who believe are stronger in love for Allah . And if only they who have wronged would consider [that] when they see the punishment, [they will be certain] that all power belongs to Allah and that Allah is severe in punishment." Quran (2:165)

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Y'know how everyone talks about being in love with Allah SWT is the ultimate love ? No doubt it is. But sometimes, we forget. Not because we purposely want to but also simply because there are some things that bother us or keep us busy in our daily lives. 

And my 2014 resolution ? I hope to never forget. I hope to always be grateful and put my God above all. Although I managed to do a bit of that last year, I hope to keep on doing it and to keep improving. Because there's no one I'd rather live for but Allah SWT. No one I'd rather please but Allah SWT and no one I'd love ultimately but Allah SWT. I pray that we all won't make the same mistakes we did in the past years. We will become better in our ibadah, better in our studies and hopefully be a better human being for the mankind, insyaaAllah.
