The return of awesomeness!

                           My favourite panda in the whole wide world

My family and I have eagerly been waiting for the return of The Dragon Warrior , Po. Last weekend, we made it to the movie theatre to watch Kung Fu Panda sequel. Well, what's my verdict??? Yep, totally brilliant. PIXAR should be worried because DREAMWORKS is finally catching up from strength to strength. This movie is totally funny. I have always loved Jack Black. I think he is so..... talented.

The star studded voice talents really made the film a success. The ending of the movie suggests that there's another sequel coming. Simply awesome!!!

                               The usual suspects! He..he..he..

Older and wiser

Now that I'm older and wiser, I realise that:

  1. It is better to forgive, forget and move on. Don't hold grudges, they are not good for you.

2.     standing on a pair of high heels for a few hours can kill me!!
3.     unconditional love is the best love, ever!!
4.    a compliment from my other half can really make my day.
5.      your children's favourite tv programmes will be your favourites too!
6.      a few strands of grey hair give you the privilege to give free advice.
7.      not all in-fashion clothes make you look good.
8.      nothing beats reading a good novel while drinking a cup of hot milo.
9.      patience is really a virtue.  It defines who we are.

All the world is a birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.

Yesterday was my eldest child's birthday. Hazim is 13 years old now. I managed to dig up an old poem I wrote for him when he was 3 months old.

God's Gift
Thank you for entering our lives
for brighten up our days
your dimples make us forget our fear
and watching you smile
make the hearts grow warmer

A face so pure and true
may it stay the same way too.
 Thank you again.........
we love you and always do. 

                          Ummi and Abah, 1998

    Hazim's birthday cake

Hazim, just remember this; God gave us the gift of life. It is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.
My prayers for you always. May Allah bestow upon you love, a blessed life filled with barakah. Love you, Hazim!!

Family's Day Out

Sometimes grocery shopping is such a chore! The long queue, the crowd and the colourful characters you meet at the the store can really get on your nerves. However, last weekend was really a fun time for my family and I.

                                         fooling around at Focus Point

                                          brothers goofing around

                                         getting my hand hennaed

                                         Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?

 A famous person once said," Do all things with love". I think he's right!

Simple Pleasures

Some pleasures are inexpensive yet satisfying and therapeutic:

                                   looking at my newly bought flower plant

celebrating Mother's Day

                                           dinner with family

                                          eating out with your loved ones

                                          jogging during the weekends

There are many ways to dissolve stress. You just need to find out what makes you happy.
