Sultan Johor Passed Away..

Well.... the last time I updated my blog was on 19th January 2010... and today.. it is already 30th January 2010... 1 more day to go and we will be in the month of February...yeayyy! it is my birthday month... huhuhuhu.. getting another year older!!!


Talking about getting older and about life, death.... my beloved Sultan of Johor died peacefully on Friday, 22nd January 2010. That Friday.. it was raining so heavily as if the world was crying & mourning for our great loss.... and he was laid to rest on Saturday, 23rd January 2010...


On the day he was laid to rest.. the day was so bright... the sun shone as if giving a final farewell and respect to a great leader. I was brought up in Johor under his reign and have been so proud being a Johorean eversince and still does... the last time that I remembered a death in the royal family was when I was in primary school... quite a long time ago...


I was there at Istana Besar on that sunny Saturday.... giving him a final farewell and respect... it was a sad day for the people of Johore.... Praying that the Almighty ALLAH bless his soul.


That day was the best experience for me as that was the day I saw all the great Sultans & leaders put aside their pride to give their final respect to my Sultan.... they walked the 3KM road all the way from Istana Besar to Makam Mahmoodiah under the hot sun!... I was so proud to be able to walk with them all the way... My hubby & I walked with Pak Lah & lovely Tun Jean.... the feeling was so unimaginable.... I was so proud of my Sultans & my leaders.... they really showed that they can be humble, caring & down-to-earth too.

So... all the people in Johore were mourning for 7 consecutive days starting from 22nd January onwards. Yesterday was the 7th & the last day.. but for the royalties... they will be mourning for 40 days. My hubby is one of the Johore's royalties... so I am still deciding whether to mourn for 7 days or to continue till 40 days???...

Anyway... I managed to capture some moments on the day my beloved Sultan was laid to rest....

This was the time when we had to wait before the door to the Istana Besar opened for the people to pay their last respect to Almarhum....

How it was on the sunny Saturday....

Hukum Karma??... Ker hukum Korma???

Sebelum tuh.. it has been quite a while since i'm writing in this blog of mine....after celebrating the new year.. I was hoping that all things that might happen in the coming days will be good but alas... we can only hope & only ALLAH knows what is in store for us...

There are lots of ups and downs in my life... and one of them is to know that my son Memen is sick.... he has thalasemia.. a GENETIC blood disorder.... but there are people who bluntly said that it was my Karma because of my sin.... herrrmmm.. who are they to judge me that way???

When a GENETIC sickness happened.. didn't we have to blame our previous genes??... that is perhaps the father or the mother or the grandparents??... and these so-called people mcm x sedar jer... Memen is part of their gene as well... so.. they are to be blame too rite??..huh!.. hukum karma konon.... ngko tuh buddhist ker??? dok percaya hukum karma???

Apapun.. sebagai seorang Muslim.. aku terima semuanya dengan penuh keredhaan.. ALLAH tidak akan menguji makhlukNya andainya makhluk itu tiada kudrat untuk menghadapinya. ALLAH tahu aku kuat dan tabah untuk melalui dugaan dan ujianNya... aku bersyukur kerana dipilih melalui ujianNya... Alhamdulillah.. ia mendekatkan aku kepadaNya....

Whatever it is.. to those people yg ckp aku nih wicked.... look! Aku cuma menegakkan apa yg benar... kalau ngko perlu nak benci aku sbb melakukan Amal Makruf Nahi Munkar.. then nasib lah... x perlu lah aku nak panjangkan apa kebendanya yg berlaku tuh.. karang x pasal2... perang sabil lagi!!!... bukan aku nak cakap aku nih baik sangat.. yes.. aku juga pernah jahat dan pernah melakukan dosa... tapi dosa aku dengan ALLAH dan kepadaNya aku memohon keampunan.

The most important thing is.. who we are at the end of our life.... and itu yang sedang aku lakukan.. untuk menjadi insan yang mulia dan sentiasa mendapat rahmat ALLAH di akhir hidup ku....

Kalau ngkau nak terus jadi setan.. it's up to you!!!!!!!! aku x campur..faham!!!!!!!!!!!

Dan mungkin telah ditakdirkan aku dgn ngkau akan perang sabil dan kemudian putus hubungan supaya aku x terus jadi setan mcm ngkau!!!!... Alhamdulillah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010!!!

Yeaaayyyy!!!..... good bye 2009!! Welcome 2010!!!!!!!!!!!!

So.. tinggal lah segala yang pahit manis dalam tahun 2009 sebagai kenangan....... apa pun aku bersyukur kerana masih bernafas untuk menikmati satu lagi tahun yang baru....

Azam aku tahun ini????... herrrrmmmm..... aku berazam nak berjimat-cermat, kumpul duit banyak2... majukan bisnes.... dan if possible... to stay in tip-top health tahun nih. 2009... menyaksikan aku menghabiskan "MC" aku yang sebanyak 14 hari tuh... x termasuk 10 hari hospitalisation.... huhuhuhu... mmg sejarah betul tahun 2009 nih sebab sepanjang kerjaya aku.. x pernah lagi aku MC sampai habis eligibility aku.... adeehhhhh!!!.. terasa mcm teruk benar prestasi kerja aku untuk tahun 2009.. tapi apa pun... alhamdulillah sebab masih dpt bonus walaupun x sebanyak yg aku expect... ekekekek....

Tapi yang pasti.. 2010 akan menyaksikan aku lebih menjaga kesihatan aku laaa... lagipun.. dah "season".. ekekekek.. mcm enjin kereta lama... nak kena overhaul nih...muahahahahahah

But.. last nite... I celebrated new year @ home jer.... malas nak keluar sebab jalan jammed giler... ada roadblock... so daripada buang masa dan letih x semena-mena.. baik lepak kat umah ajer.... bukan x leh tgk fireworks....

Tepat jam 12 tgh mlm tadi.... berdentam dentum bunyi bunga api.... kitaorang watched the fireworks from our window.... ada 3 fireworks yang clear sgt we all dpt tgk... satu shot from The Zon Regency Hotel... satu from Sembawang, Singapore and satu from Senibong!!!... yang belakang apartment we all.. mmg ler x dpt tgk.. cuma dengar bunyi jer.... meriah sungguh!!!!!!
And the fireworks are so beautiful!!!!!!

Joey plak ckp... this year hebat betul.. rasa mcm kat Baghdad!!.. apa daaa abah!!!!!!!

Apapun... HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
