The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.

Late Delivery !!!

hi there..
such a late post..
eid mubarak had passed for about 3weeks
and now, here i put some memories of it...
1 syawal was on 30 August 2011..
it was such a nostalgic eid
where we made lemang (made of glutinous rice and coconut milk and cooked in a hollowed bamboo stick lined with banana leaves in order to prevent the rice from sticking to the bamboo),
ketupat (made from rice that has been wrapped in a woven palm leaf pouch and boiled. As the rice cooks, the grains expand to fill the pouch and the rice becomes compressed )
and all my cousins gathered in my grandma house..
it was havoc and the feelings were different
it was awesome..
guys took care of foods that on fire
while girls did the house cleaning
accompanied by raya songs and babies...
it was exhausted...
even we were hungry as we were fasting,
but the joy and laughter made it fantastic

all my handsome and hardworking cousins..
they enjoyed their work..
they even went to Jeram for refreshment

at night
in cik pui house for Takbir

Takbir at mine
while waiting the others

in cik Ju's
understanding the real meaning of Raya with lil bunger =)

my family
before rushing to my grandparents'

there was a birthday party
it was izz's

with the birthday boy..

when the guys in action...
they asked for many shoots!!

in front of my late grandma house
reminiscing good old days

We all grow up with the weight of history on us.
Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains
as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies.
