Jejak Kasih : My long lost cousin

I just don’t really know where to begin. No words can describe how I felt at the moment. Abg Rashid is my cousin. I don’t really know him because when I was growing up , he was studying in the States. After a while he became the long lost cousin. Somehow the communication between him and his family was disconnected. And that was 22 years ago.  I am not really sure the detail of the story.

To make the long story short, Facebook has made it possible for Abg Rashid to be found! Amazing! Some facts about the reunion.
* Abg Rashid’s friend found Kak Dada (Abg Rashid’s sister) on facebook
* they communicated just to make sure they were talking about the same person
* Kak Dada got Abg Rashid phone no. She called him for the first time and the rest was history
* the news spread via phone and facebook among the cousins
* all the family members were so excited with the news.
* After that Abg Rashid got his own facebook (he doesn’t have one before this)
* I added him and communicated for the first time with him via facebook chat. We’ve been chatting a lot since that day.
Amazingly he remembered me! His memories are surprisingly good.
* His sister and his mother planned to see him in November. Arrangement was made and.. this is what happened..
* They meet for the first time and the family here in Malaysia can witness it too!

* Pertemuan yang sangat menyentuh hati
* It brings tears to my eyes
* I can’t wait to meet him next year
* the video was edited by my other cousin Faizal

Saturday morning starts a bit late for me. Oh boy I was feeling so sick since last night. I really hope this cough and this flue will go away soon. My sleeps was disturbed by this annoying ringing—that phone did stop ringing –who would called this late at night. Luckily my cough medicine kick in and I doze off into my zzzland.
Some announcement I would like to make. Ayu and Amir is finally engaged! I am so happy for them.

I am really glad they choose me to be apart of their important day. I’ll do what I can to prepare her mentally, emotionally and spiritually till the big day. It can be overwhelm sometimes if you wanted to do it all yourself.

day 329:P365 ~~ gratitude for abeautifulmess

Well, my 30 days of gratitude project is almost over and I cannot end this project without giving thank to the blog and artist who inspired me all these years. She is elsie and abeautifulmess is her blog. I’ve been following her for more than two years and I really like her art and her outlook on life.

Black Friday: sales every where in digi world

Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.[citation needed] On this day many U.S. retailers open very early, often at 5 a.m., and offer promotional sales to kick off the shopping season. Because Thanksgiving always falls on the fourth Thursday in November in the United States, the day after occurs between the 23rd and the 29th of November.” source wikipedia

day 327:Project 365~~~ gratitude for my hands

Today is day 327 of 365. I just can’t believe it! It really has been a blast for me. Love every moment of it.

“Of course there are so many parts to choose from. It could be your eyes for what they take in or your legs for where they take you. It may even be a part that doesn't work quite right but it may be a springboard for finding gratitude for in other ways. Please share a big or little gratitude for a big or little part of your body today.” ideas from 30daysofgratitude.org

So today, I would like to be thankful for my hands. With them I can do so many things – blogging, texting, cooking, cleaning, touching,. I know my life would not be the same without it!

10 things : small things that make my day

Sometimes it is a good idea to keep a list of things that brings you joy. We seldom forget about the little things that makes us happy and content on a daily basis. Life itself is a bliss. We just have to stop focusing on what other people have and focus more on what we do have. Here go my lists!
1) this layout: 4 Simple Goals

4simplegoals-web

2) this TV Show: Desperate Housewives 
Watching all of these people with their own little secrets and their own problems, makes mine seems so small. I love that they add Vanessa William to the cast.

3) this social networking : Twitter ---> currently I am obsessed  with it.

4) this blog: color me katie–> I love the eyecandy at this blog
image
5) this song: “Insya Allah” by Maher Zain

 

6) and this song: What a girl wants

7) this book: Twilight–> Still love this.

8) this toy: Canon 50D 
I could always find a reason to fall in love with this camera all over again.
