Ramadhan Resolution

Ramadhan Al-Mubarak will come again in 3 days. Normally if few days more to New Year, people will start talking about resolution. Why not we welcome this precious month of Ramadhan with resolutions as well, resolution that InsyaAllah will move us forward in terms of Ibadah and Iman.

In my opinion, resolutions must be realistic and it depends on your situation right now. Is the meaning of Ramadhan is only Bazaar Ramadhan & Solat Terawih? It should be more than that.

Realistic Resolution can be as follows:
  • Spend more time for reciting Al-Quran
  • Perform more Prayers (Solat Sunat)
  • Make more Do'a
  • Give more Sedeqah (Charity in terms of money or food or etc)
  • Take opportunity to revise our deeds, stop doing the bad deeds (sinful)

I call this Realistic Resolution because it can be done. Take for an example reciting Al-Quran, of course it is recommended to at least recite 1 Juz everyday, but knowing our busy life, if we can move from 0 (zero - not doing at all) to at least 1-2 page everyday, I consider that a Realistic Resolution.

Don't understand me wrongly, my point here is, it is better we move a step forward rather that not moving at all. At least we appreciate and treat Ramadhan as a special month, and with the hope that, the improvement that we made through Ramadhan will be Istiqamah (consistent) after the AidilFitri.

Let us try to make a move forward during this Ramadhan, because we never knew whether we can still live for the next Ramadhan.

Photobook Ordered & 5 Weeks Pregnant

First of all, last night I've placed order for our wedding photobook. Alhamdulillah. I picked PixaJoy because my brother just printed a photobook with this company and also it gives out 30% discount eVoucher through its Facebook Page: Expect to received it in 2 weeks time. Can't wait to see it!

Second of all, last week, my wife broke the news that she bought the pregnancy test and tested positive! I'm the happiest man alive. Yesterday, my wife confirmed it by testing again at a clinic. Alhamdulillah. Thanks to the Al-Mighty Allah for His Blessings and Gifts.

My wife registered at this wonderful site called BabyCenter. I registered it too and guess what, I received email as shown below. Cool, this website reminds you about the progress of your baby.

Thanks to Allah swt for His Gifts and Blessings. Semoga kita sentiasa menjadi orang2 yang bersyukur atas segala nikmatNya.

Photobook In Progress

It has been 1 month, 3 weeks & 6 days after our wedding, but I still have not completed our wedding Photobook. Sorry Sayang, I'm doing it almost every night this week. Hopefully can send for printing next week. I'm using Adobe InDesign CS4 for layout and Adobe Photoshop CS4 for editing.

Hmm, regarding the printing company, still have not decided since my brothers are offering their discount coupon for the Photobook printing. Anyhow, anyway, hopefully it gonna look good!

Stay tuned.

Honeymoon Photos


Here are some photos (200++) during our visit to Perth. In short, we really enjoyed our stay there. The temperature is just similar to Malaysia's except the wind is chiller and at night is colder there.

The host for our guesthouse (Jeffry & family) also very nice and quite helpful. We really don't think twice to stay at that guesthouse again if we happen to visit Perth in the future!

Enjoy the photos!!

Here are some videos at the Caversham Wildlife Park:

Can't wait for the next holiday!! But before that need to work hard first!

Take care.

Journey to Perth

Alhamdulillah we've reached Perth. Below is the travel log. Read bottom-up.

View some photos during our stay at my wife's blog: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3

10am: Reached Arcadian Bed & Breakfast. Host Jeffrey is really kind and good. He offered us some cereal and coffee for breakfast while chit chatting about the house and also about Perth.

9.30am: Reached Palms Bed & Breakfast. Supposed we should go to the branch which is nearer to the Warwick Train Station, but we could not find it, endup walking for about half-hour before reaching the place. Luckily, hostess Teresa is kind enough to send us to the other branch which is owned by his brother, Jeffrey.

5.20am (next day): Reached Perth Airport. Can 't really sleep on the plane though. Went thru customs. Luckily we didn't bring any animal. lol.

11.20pm: Boarding the aircraft.

10.04pm: Beep reached LCCT. Alhamdulilah. We reunite again! Now waiting for the boarding time.

9.40pm: Check-in completed. Luggage weigh 13kg. Boarding time will 11.1opm. Beep is on the way to LCCT with the shuttle bus.

9.20pm: Beep managed to take the next train back to Salak Tinggi. Thank you, Sayang! You are the best!! Meanwhile, Pi still queuing at the check-in counter. There are 7 counters open.

9.06pm: Beep reached Putrajaya Sentral with the mission.

9.01pm: Pi reached LCCT.

8.35pm: Reached Salak Tinggi station. We embarked. Still in panic state. The careless Pi suggest that Beep take the next train back to Putrajaya Sentral to take the key.The nice Beep agreed to take the next train back. The plan is she gonna take the train either 9.20pm or 9.50pm from Putrajaya Sentral after retrieving the key. Pi really feel guilty. But, thinking positively, at least there's still time to retrieve the key, instead of breaking the bag. huhu. Pi take the bus to LCCT, Beep take the train. We split.

8.20pm: Train departed from Putrajaya Sentral. Beep asked me whether to open the luggage and take out the sweater. Then suddenly I remembered that the luggage bag key is in the car!! We panicked.

8.12pm: Reached Putrajaya Sentral. We have 8 minutes to run before the next train to LCCT.

7.58pm: All set. We depart from home en route to Putrajaya Sentral, where we gonna take train to Salak Tinggi and take the shuttle bus to LCCT.
