A Simple Dress

I found this blue dress and fell in love with it. It comes in a few colours too and the dusky pink is very nice. I was contemplating of buying it but didnt get to do it. And now I am dreaming of it ... Wish I had....
Well..the next time you see something that you like...grab it or you will live to regret it. The best that I could do now is to get it tailored.
Huh ...

Fifth day of Ramadhan

Rained the whole evening,
That didnt dampen my spirits
As I sit and watch the falling rain
Waiting for Iftar
... with roasted chicken and sardines sandwich wrapped in filo.
and that wonderful hot cup of tea

Got a sad news today
The passing of an old classmate's husband
May his soul rest in peace
Al Fatehah.
Life is so fragile.
So lets treasure what we have ...

Went shopping for Eid
Eyes went starry over all the beautiful dresses with all kinds of scarves and shawls.
Riots of colours
Beads and precious stones ...
Embroideries ...

Nice, nice, nice
But when do I wear them ?

Ramadhan Kareem

They were sighting the moon this evening to determine when would Ramadhan starts. As always it is exciting to wait for the announcement on tv. The "Penyimpan Mohor Raja Raja Melayu" only appears twice a year on tv to announce the Ramadhan and Eid. Although we all had thought that it will starts on saturday. Kids were ..oohh and aahhs since they have to attend school another day.

Got in touch with a few old friends today just to catch up on some news. And unfortunately one of them is down with H1N1. She is recovering well and I do hope and pray for her good health. She shared with me a couple of tips to combat the H1N1 first it is green apples, just eat it raw or blend it. Second is dates soaked in coconut juice. And of course drink plenty of warm water.
Stay healthy and stay away from crowded placed.
Ramadhan Kareem !

Finally ... the end !

After Four years I finally managed to look at his pictures and feels nothing.
And it feels just great !


This is the end
Of a beautiful love between two people

Between the stars
Are memories of our love
Of warm sunlit evenings
Leisurely strolls
Down old country lanes
Of Tim Hortons coffee and muffins
A sit in the park
And quiet moments on the balcony

I didnt get to see the apple tree
That you promised to plant

These are gone forever
And I can only
Cherish the memory
And look past the stars
Into eternity
And see
A broken heart
behind a locked door

Your heart is no good
Until it has been broken
At least ten times ...
Love and pain make us human
