Ramadhan Al-Mubarak

Salam Ramadhan.. bulan yang penuh dengan keberkatan!  We've passed the half-month mark a couple of days ago.  Syukur alhamdulillah, Uya has managed to fast throughout except for 1 day where she had an injection at school.  Nurse suruh makan ubat tahan sakit - so terbatal lah puasa.  I didn't expect for her to be this committed and larat puasa considering the fact that last year she only managed to fully fast for 1 day!  But perhaps her cousins' past year's achievement is motivating her to get through the day.  Apa2 pun, I kept telling her this (the hunger & thirst) must've been what the unfortunate felt (we recalled our visit to Kolkata where many people live on the street! isk!) - and on a daily basis some more, with probably no food even during waktu berbuka. Fasting is really a blessing coz at the end of the day, it made you realize how lucky you are to have food on the table and feel the nikmat makan waktu berbuka puasa.  MasyaAllah..

Anyway, this weekend we're staying put in Melaka.  For the past 2 weekends we've been going back to Ipoh & Putrajaya to break fast with family and friends.  But 3rd week in a row?  Maybe not.  Plus I really need to sort out my old clothes/spring clean my closets.  Terlampau banyak baju!  Uya's also.  She's growing out of her pants/jeans/dress so fast!  So need to get new sets for her (baju raya lah tu).  Talking about baju raya, this year I don't quite feel the need to splurge especially coz on 3rd raya we're going on a family trip to Penang.  Teluk Bahang to be specific.. and the activities that we have in mind does not involve traditional baju kurung lah!  I can't wait to go on the trip coz it's been a while when all of our family members are in town.  Fortunately this year, my youngest brother (whom everyone calls Adik - hence nickname 'Pak Su Adik') came back from UK and we'll get to celebrate raya together soon, insyaAllah :)

Have a blessed Ramadhan, everyone!  It's leaving us soon.. so lets grab the chance to do good as best as we can.  Semoga semua amalan baik kita di bulan ini diberkatiNya.  Amin..
