My oh my....it has been a llloooooong time....

Assalamualaikum and Peace upon all of you...

Looks like my blog got loads of sawang here and there..Time for spring cleaning maybe..oh should I call it rainy season...tralalala.....Hihihi...nak buat mcm mana...Malaysia life is really hectic and super duper busy (please counts in time spent in traffic jem)...Since my last writing which took place in February, what I can say is that we had travelled to few interesting places : Melaka, Langkawi, N.9, Rompin-Pahang, Perlis, PD and nearby places. Phewww...When you jalan2, of coz you need to fill up your tummy too...Makan2 is a must ;) we ate the renowned Rompin Undang Galah..Itik salai from Terachi, N.Sembilan...Ice cream potong Melaka..not to be forgotten King of all fruits- The King : Durian pun makin banyak sbb dah hamper musim, rambutan pun dh mula menjenguk..But I am waiting for hitam hitam si tampok manggis...Oh of coz, almost every weekend..there is a list of kenduri that we need to attend..not to mention, other social events such as birthday party, aqiqah, cukur jambul, etc...Hohoho....more and more nasi biryani and nasi minyak in the tummies..So for the upcoming Ramadhan, we can have a break from kenduri..Hihihi....

Life so far so good and great. Alhamdulillah. We are adapting our life here quite well. Huhhuhu...bunyi mcm la duduk lama sgt kat sana tu sampai x reti2 ye nak adapt..hikhikhik...Muhammad is rarely speaks about his place of birth nowadays. Miss Sepet, no concern or may be no memories at all of her birth place.Hihihi...enjoying every moments of their life. Mine? I am still struggling with my post as student and full time house manager. Missing the 2nd kampong..hmmmm...not really...what I miss most is the Carboot!! Hohoho...
I need to continue with what I am doing, so till then...Adios Amigos..ciao..

Kuala Selangor nan indah lagi permai...

Salam Khamis semua.....tadaaaa.....after a long weekend bagi org2 Wilayah n Selangor...tau2 je hari dah masuk hari Khamis...esok Jumaat...lusa weekend lagi..Yabadabedooooo....So korang g mana masa long weekend tu??? Well, al-kisah kami sekeluarga pada Sabtu yg lepas..selepas attended satu wedding kat MAEPS, Mardi..tengah nak keluar dr hall tu..teng teng teng...datang ilham..Jom g PD..tengok 3D museum..Oh okk...N bila keluar je arah Hospital Serdang itu..tetiba...Kuala Selangor kita!!!

Maka ini ler kisah unplanned visit to Kuala Selangor di hari Sabtu nan ceria...Jadi destinasi jalan-jalan xde kereja kami pada hari itu ialah melawat Bandar Lama Selangor/ Ibu negeri Pemerintahan Kesultanan Melayu Selangor nan lalu....Moh kita ke Kota Melawati...Half way guna highway Putrajaya tu and sampai satu part tu kami gunakan jalan kampong.

Perjalanan dari Serdang ke Kuala Selangor mengambil masa kurang dari 1 jam setengah sahaja (itu pun bawa secara santai dan berhenti 2 kali di petrol station). Bertolak dalam jam 12.30 tgh.

Destinasi pilihan: Kota Melawati dan Kelip-Kelip Kuala Selangor (fireflies) yang famous itu.

Cost: Tramp ride/ tourist train dari bawah ke atas bukit ialah RM5 bagi dewasa dan RM3 bagi kanak-kanak berusia 3-12 tahun.

Manakala, bagi satu boat utk fireflies nite time watching experience for 1/2 hour ride on Sungai Selagor di Kampung Kuantan is RM50 per boat. The maximum capacity for boat ride is 4 persons per ride. Boat ni x pakai engine tau, manual ok. Jadi, sungguh gigih abang pendayung mendayung dan beliau sgt peramah dan baik hati..hehehe

Destinasi pertama: Kota Melawati



Ada seorang kanak-kanak riang yang sedang sukaria berlari tanpa menghiraukan seangkatan lotong yang mendominasikan area Kota Melawati itu...

 
Sorang lagi baru lepas accident, excited tahap gaban terus lari2 n dgn macho nyer jatuh tersungkur n dapatlah cop mohor kat bawah hidung tu...Kids will always be kids, mana reti nak duduk diam kan ;)
 


Kami dengan bakal pewaris Orang Besar Kuala Selangor iaitu Yus..Ni geng Bangi gak ler...Mana2 pun boleh je ajak lepak Kemudians ni..Yus balik kampong, lawat ayah dia...alang2 join lepak skali ler...
Saya pernah menginap semalam di Museum K. Selangor few years back sebelum diorng convert the DO (District Officer) official house into a museum. Selalu balik ikut my bff balik rumah dia..Tapi cukuplah semalam je nak tidur kat situ..yang lain sanggup balik hari jer..hehehe..ni kalau uncle Seeker dengar ni..mesti suka dia...
Ermmm....just imagine the only building with inhabitants on top of the hill was the DO's house..Padang depan Nampak light house dgn pkok2 jurai2 yg beusia ratusan tahun, pandang tepi Nampak hutan, pandang belakang ada batu berdarah...n kalau pandang lebih2...gulp!!! hohoho...But i cant denied the facts that the views are super stunning!! MasyaAllah..terus nampak laut je bila lepak kat balcony rumah/museum tu...Bab malam yg x berapa nak stunning sgt..hehehe..Masa tu, my bff Chah's father was the DO. Family diorng org yg terakhir menginap di rumah tu..selepas diorng moved out, baru ops menaik tarah rumah dilakukan..Maka hasilnya ialah..tadaaaa...nice tourist attraction..Nampak ceria wpun the aura is still lingering there...especially kat belakang museum tu...Hmmmm....




 
oh ye...kereta x dibenarkan bawa ke atas...unless certain vehicles only..Oh kat tepi tu ada mcm2 hawkers jual makanan utk lotong, utk org..n ada sorng pakcik ni jual cendol yg sedap...cendol pandan..leh laaa nak layan sambil lepak kat tepi meriam tu..feeling gitu....

 
Penduduk asal dari dulu lagi kat Kota Melawati- Lotong...
Mereka ini sgt jinak dan x heran dgn org.Berhati-hati kalau bawa makanan.
Jadi x perlu g jauh2 ke Tanjung Bungah, Penang nak tengok diorng ni...hehe..Kota Melawati mmg kampong diorng...


 
Light house......menghadap muara sungai Kuala Selangor yg terus ke laut.  
 







 
dah low batt memasing....

 
Makam sultan-sultan Selangor yang terdahulu. Al-Fatihah...


Lepas settle lawatan kat atas tu, kira lawat pulak rumah Orang Besar Kuala Selangor dkt kaki bukit tu...Ni bakal Datin..hehehe..



Lepas settle minum petang kat rumah ayah Yus, kitorng gerak ke Kampung Kuantan utk makan malam dan solat sekali...Sgt convenient skali, sbbnya Masjid Kampung Kuantan betul-betul bersebelahan dgn Pusat Kelip-Kelip, jadi lepas solat terus zoom ke sana...Sebabkan arahan utk tidak memasang flash ketika berada di kawasan pemuliharaan Sg Selangor, jadi sempat snap gambar MH tengah cuak nak naik boat di malam nan indah itu...Bila korang naik sampan tu, boleh pegang the fireflies tu..tp jangan terlebih rajin nak bawa balik rumah jadikan souvenir lak..tak pasal kena denda RM1000...Jadi lepas settle kami tengok ciptaan Allah yg unik ini...kami pun beransur balik..This time, terus je amik highway dari mula...

Sememangnya Malaysia kita sangat indah dan x kurang daya tarikannya...rata2 yg ada kat Kampung Kuantan tu ialah tourists merata dunia...locals dlm 20% sahaja...Wish list nak tengok kelip2 dah boleh strikeout...yeay!!!

Bertenang setenang air di tasik..

Salam Isnin semua....

Sedar tak sedar, January dah hampir sampai ke penghujungnya. Masa sangat mencemburui kita dan cepat sangat berlalu. Jadi, apa yang kita dh achieve utk bulan pertama 2015? Jeng jeng jeng..Oh ye, ana sebelum masuk 2015 antara impian or wishes yang nak dicapai adalah tingkatkan KeSABARAN dan KeTENANGan..chewah...sebelum ni masa remaja gitu, tersangat la baran.Ouch!! not good ok, ada je yg boleh buat ana melenting n mengamok..so not good, kids please don't do this. Not a good habit after all. huhuhu....Slowly, for the past 10 years I manage to control my tamper and anger. Sekarang ni, bertekad nak menjadi seorang yg super duper COOL and Awesome..apakah cool nyer? hehehe...Pendek kata, panjang x berkata, ana nak jadi seorang Muslimah, Isteri, Ibu dan Sahabat yang sgt SABAR.

To begin with, I am having difficulty to "tenang'kan my little girl iaitu Miss IN yang suka mencabar kesabaran I and the whole family. As for myself too, agak sukar nak tenangkan diri bila deal dgn anak dara sorng ni...Her brother always says, Why can she listen? Why she always wins? Can we put her into time out for behaving badly? hehehe...amboi, MH bunyi mcm org tua ok..Suka ati lu je nak bg time out kat adik sendiri ye..hahaha...

Actually, she is a good girl but she has a very strong will characther in each everything she wants to do. Pendek kata, kalau nak pakai kasut pun boleh jadi isu la bila berdepan dgn Miss IN ni. Kita bagi dia pakai selipar, dia keluarkan kasut. N for sure, she will say "Tak Nak" before I can even finish the whole sentence..hohoho...other than using reverse psychology to entice her with our choices. The success rate will be 50-50. As usual, she wins and Me got stress and kokooo...hahaha...She is a witty girl. I should give her the freedom to choose. But in certain ways, I do give her the choice. But in some other ways, when its involving safety, I need to take charge as an adult. For instance, she hates it so much when we hold her hands in the public areas. 2 years old don't want to hold your hands and want to walk on her own. Roaming freely without any restriction? Scary kan??? Especially in Malaysia..in the BolehLand...A big NO there and end up A Drama Minggu Ini cap mak and anak in a shopping mall..

Even if we place her in her stroller and buckle her up, she manages to free herself. Headache! Jadi, I need to restraint  my anger and have inner peace to take control of the situation and eventually take charge of the super savvy Miss IN. Through reading from many sources. I put into practice these few steps which works wonderfully for me:

1. Stay Calm - try to use right breathing techniques.

2. Don't show facial discomfort or anger expression in front of her. Try 'hard' to smile and look cool ;)  

3. Ask her, what bothers her in the first place. Let her explains first.

4. Using calm and strict tone voice when you explain. Give her reasonable reason if you do not agree with her choice. No shouting and screaming from the parents.

5. If she insists, firmly stick to your decision.

6. If she starts her tantrums, I normally recite Al-Fatihah slowly to her while hugging her (but not to tight) until her anger subside. If she persists, last option is to bring her to toilet. N I take wudhu' together with her..If it outside the house, I will keep on hugging her until she is ok.

7. Last option is to remind her, she will get time out treatment if she fails to listen to the final reminder (depends on the surroundings too).

8. Once the drama subsides and she is calm, time to explain it to her on her behaviors and the reasoning behind the act.

Fuhh....in the beginning, it was really hard for me to practice those steps. It took a hell of a lot of patience for me to handle the 'drama'. Alhamdulillah...slowly, she knows that that she is not the little boss anymore.. MH also happier nowadays because he got the deserved attention which has always been plundered by his sweet little sister.

Ok la... saje tepek gambo kami ber3 utk semua....



Us at MAEPS, MAHA 2014... feeling ala2 mcm kat tepi pantai. Walhal tengah jalan...akekeke...

2015 sudah....

Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera semua...

Hampir sebulan juga, saya x mencoretkan apa-apa penulisan dalam blog ni. Bulan December 2014, for me banyak meninggalkan kesan yg mendalam dalam hati dan sanubari hingga ke lubuk hati. Just wanna jote down two occasions that truly made me thinking on the oneself existence in this world.

1. Maria Zain...

Upon hearing the news on the 28th December, 2014, I was reeling back onto my Uniten days. Back then when she was my study mate, group mate and my bowling partner for Uniten. So many things came into my mind. It took me one whole day to digest the news and Redha that she was no longer with us but she was called back by Our Mighty Creator as her time was up. Though, we had not had a chance to meet physically since her wedding. But we were always had our conversations done in FB. Thanks to the technology the ukhwah can be maintained and continued. I am impressed with her strong- willed to be a fulltime housewife and turned down the high salary pays to look after her family. Before she came to the UK, we had conversations almost everyday as she was preparing her family for the new journey there. She was pregnant with the No. 5 during that time. She loved to call her kids using number. Hehehe...easier. Said her.

In the UK, she loved to update her kids' activities in FB, which was against her earlier principles of public exposure through FB. Maria herself was a photo shy. Almost everyday, she updated her kids' photo and their antics. Luckily she did that. She had so many things in her plate and she made it looked effortlessly. Being a wife, a mother of 5 and international freelance author. She homeschooled all of her kids!! 

She is no longer with us. But her writings will stay forever. May Allah (SWT) count her writings as an on-going charity of beneficial knowledge and have mercy on her, accept her good deeds and grant her the highest ranks of Jannah. Ameen. Al- Fatihah..

2. Flood in Pantai Timur....

I cant help myself from crying when I looked at the aftermath of the flood. May Allah show His Mercy to us...Innalillah....

Pada dia... masalah dia lah terberat..ini I category kan sebagai problems competition..hehehe..new term ok...korang ada pernah jumpa tak set-set manusia macam ni?
