PC6028

PC6028 

It's been over a year since my dad left us. The feeling is still the same. Every time I think of him, I can almost feel my heart wrenching. 

It's been very challenging to even write things down. 

Since May 20th 2015, we have learnt to accept the fact that he is indeed at a better place. But not a day passed by without thinking about him. 

One story I wish to have it penned here is about PC6028. It's a Honda 50cc dad bought when he was studying. It was his first property I guess. He loved it so very much. 

Growing up, we all learnt to ride the motorcycle and we use it to move around. It has a very iconic and loud sound. So people will literally know you are approaching from far away. 

I was kinda embarrassed to ride it to school because friends would make fun of it. For that reason, I was not fond of it. (Rebellious teenager I was).

Over the years, the motorcycle ended in a pretty bad shape. Dad keeps repairing it and using it although we have other mode of transportation. 

My brothers are so into bikes and cars so they appreciate it. My elder brother, was the one who really love the motorcycle. He would spend a lot of time, effort and money making sure the motorcycle is useable. 

Anyways, just few months before dad passed on he said to my elder brother that he will give the motorcycle to him as a birthday present. 

After he passed on, my brother sent the motorcycle to the workshop to get it fixed, overhauled and repainted. I think it was end of May. 

On 12th October 2015, the mechanic rang him up and said the motorcycle is completed and he may collect it. Coincidentally, I was in Alor Setar at that point of time, so I went to the workshop to pick it up. 

My heart was flooded with tears when I start the engine. I rode it home. 

Like I said everyone could hear the distinctive sound of the engine so my family got out of the house before I reached home. 

We FaceTime my elder brother to show him the motorcycle. He was very happy, and then he broke down. 

His birthday is 14th October. The motorcycle found his way to my brother just in time for his birthday, just like how dad planned. 

Is it a coincidence?

Photobomb!

Just like everyone, I have a family whatsapp group where we share all sorts of updates, stories, jokes and completely unrelevant stuff. 

Very recently my auntie wished everyone good morning and I replied asking her to send us a selfie. She shared this photo instead:



This could possibly be my very first photobomb! My uncle and nephew was seated next to my auntie but they were completely blocked by me. 

That aside, I find it extremely moving for my aunt to still find this photo memorable, and worth keeping. 

Now, it has become a priceless piece for me too. Reminding me of what simple things could mean, and how blessed I am to have this much love abound me.

Happy Mothers Day!



My mum means the world to me. I love her so very much. I know how much she love her kids and what she would do to make sure we are all ok. 

Growing up I was quite rebellious but time has taught me to appreciate my parents. 

I always feel bad for not spending enough time with my mum so I try to compensate that by speaking to her at least twice a day. It is almost a ritual. 

This coming Ramadhan, I plan to spend a week with my mum. She will be staying with me at my house and I look forward to spending quality time with her. 

Last year was the very first time for my mum to celebrate Ramadhan in Kuala Lumpur instead of our family house in Alor Setar. She was with me the first week and we had a nice time buka puasa, tarawikh and sahur together. It was very memorable and I would like to do it again. 

Maybe the first day we will do simple things at home and then go to the mosque. One of the days I plan to take her to buka puasa somewhere nice. But more importantly I plan to bring her to buka puasa in Shah Alam, so we can go for Tarawikh at Masjid Shah Alam (the blue mosque). I don't know why but it's just something I really would like to do.

My mum is a great cook, and she truly enjoys her time in the kitchen. I look forward to let her have her time in my deserted kitchen (she is already making a list!).

I hope Allah will continue to give me the chance to create many many fond memories with my mum. 

Happy Mother's Day!

AirAsia Airbus A320









Pose!

My colleagues and I had a couple of hours to kill at Bali airport.

We had some nice food, tried some local desserts, delicious chocolates and coffee. 

Me : Guys lets take a photo! 

This was their reaction: 


Ok now we are ready.
