One Hundred Forty Nine

This morning, Syafiq came close to me, and said something very romantic. He was almost whispering.

"Baca sajak ke?" I asked. Knowing from the beginning it was actually a song.

He was taken aback and retracted, "Kuasamlah Jaja ni! Tahulah suara kita tak sedap."

I burst into laughter. He further said, half merajuk, "Kita ni asyik dikelilingi orang yang suka bahan kita je."

One Hundred Twenty Eight

I've been given a luxury of time hence there was a lot of time spent on thinking of things that may seem nonsensical to others.

I blurted out a question to my darling husband on our way to his football match last night.

"What do you want people to associate you with?"

"A successful business."

I nodded silently. Smiled, impressed.

"Okay name three. Two more, please."

"Hmm... being helpful." Oh yes. He is really helpful. Very helpful to the effect that he'd abandon me in the middle of the night to help his friends out. I nodded again.

"Last one?"

"Husajdhasj ijahhadsnazura." The sound of a superbike engine interrupted so I couldn't hear properly. But I knew he was also mumbling."

"Come again?"

"Husband Ijah Ajura."


One Hundred Forty Seven

I realise that people left for various reasons. For knowledge and experience, for a greener pastures, better opportunities, heart mending and the list goes on.

I realise that people left and it's entirely natural to do so.

This piece of writing is a dedication for a little sister I've known for a long time. We may stay apart but you are always close to my heart.

Here's a short poem for you who's leaving (again) today...

Why do people have to leave

When smiles exchanged
When strings attached
When love blossomed

Why do people have to leave...

One Hundred Forty Six

Feeling a bit mellow today. Something I haven't got to feel for quite some times. Accompanied by an interesting book, silence and a little bit of boredom.

It's post Aidiladha today and half of me wants to drag me to stroll at a mall while the other half is asking for my mercy to take a nap.

It's also post birthday celebration and I'm feeling loved.

Also struggling lately especially with my worsening skin condition. It gets very itchy sometimes and acne has become a real problem to me now. Even girlfriend is surprised someone our age (well that's me) could be suffering from this, which sounds pretty impossible to us.

That's some updates. I'm giving in to evening nap finally.
