Bird Connection 2

A tekukur tanah with its chicks
Didn't I write before about my bird connection? Yeah, I think a lot of times, isn't it :)

I used to have a bird pet named Lucky Dog cause it fell from a tree on the day of Chinese New Year and it was the year of a Dog. It brought me good luck, so the name goes. I also wrote about relationship of a bird. Some birds mate for a lifetime. Unlike human being who seldom faithful nor content with just one partner. This is said with real life experiences. Here is the posting :) 

My posting about Bird Connection is here. Please don't get bored. Hehehe...

Other postings about bird.  You may find all these posting interlinked with one another because it's all about great creatures of the sky. I love them!

I saved a few birds in my life. They came to me naturally in my surroundings. Even while I was working in the office. Gosh! Amazing, isn't it! Here is the posting :)

Hang on... last but not least, my favourite all time literature also metaphorically named after a bird, i.e. To Kill a Mocking Bird. An amazing masterpiece by Harper Lee. Marvellous. Highly recommended for everyone to read and learn a few good things in life.  
Two chicks makes me happy!

Many people doubted my special connection with birds. These little creatures are meant to be in my life forever and ever. See it for yourselves. Birds nested on my hanging pots always. And I meant it literally, always. For the past three non-stop years, that is for my latest abode.

Some people do questioned why. Why would a bird nests near my abode or came near me. Well... I can't really answer that. I myself can't really explain why.

The photos here are of Terkukur Tanah. Its a type of pigeon. It is a smaller version of 'Spotted Dove'. They usually play and find food on the ground. Rarely they fly very high from the ground except for this one, it flew all the way to the 5th floor of my apartment.

Everytime these birds nested, everytime I had to revive the plants or change it to a new one. However, I don't really mind. Not a lost at all. It's all about gaining the trust and love of my birds.

I am not a superstitious type. However I believe I have a special connection with this creature. My life's journey often involved them as a companion. I feel blessed. I might not get the love I truly yearn from human being. God compensated it with the love of animals. To earn love and trust from animals are truly a big deal to me.

Thank you buddy :)

My Heart, please be patient

Rain drops at my window
It's coming to a New Year again. The Islamic New Year of Hijri is just around the corner, which is tomorow and soon the Gregorian Calendar follows.

This is a time of reflection for everyone. I definitely always sit back and reassess my life. The goods and the bads. The As and the Fs of my actions. The consequences of my brilliancy and stupidity. Lalalala...
Nobody's perfect :)

Lately, it was like time spent too much on thinking and sleeping with the thoughts. During rainy days, I would just lay on my bed, staring at the raindrops on my windowpane. It makes me think better. I always tell myself just let it be. Go with the flow as God knows what is best for me. 

Sometimes your path crosses with someone which gives meaning into your life. Sometimes even a short encounter can change your whole life. No doubt God makes our lives so mysterious you just can't tell what will happen next. 

I met a lot of people. Strangers and not so strangers who came into my life and give meaning to the moment. One thing I really learned and would gladly share with everyone here is never ever reject anyone who came into your life with good intention. Cherish every moment and make the best of the joy that each other could bring. You wouldn't know what will happen next. Just go with the flow. God knows what's best for you.  

We may not always get what we want in life because God has a different plan for us. The one that we want so badly might not be the right one for us. So be thankful and redha with what God has in store for us. No incident is a coincidence. It's all planned by the One. 

Take care and never give up on love. Mwah! Mwah!

Happy Islamic New Year, 1435 Hijriah

Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Istanbul, Turkey
Wishing all Muslims Happy Islamic New Year 1435 Hijri!

May we all be a better person than we were before. Live life to the fullest. Have no regrets as every experience teaches us something to prepare us for our next journey in life. Be gentle towards all creatures. Thank Allah every morning for the chance to live another day. Appreciate your family and people who love you. Show gratitude by good deeds and lots of love. Last but not least, forgive and ask forgiveness for nobody is perfect.

Take care and may Allah bless you. Mwah! Mwah!

My Birthday Today

This is the most crucial year for me. The big number, the turning point in my life. Today is my birthday. Huhuhu...

Thought I would sit alone being miserable but on the opposite. I was not left alone by my food friends Pava and Jasz who were there in the morning till the night ends. 

I'm blessed with good friendship.

2012 Most Memorable Family History

My beautiful sister in law Aida
Sometimes in our busy days catching up with our own struggle in life, we tend to forget to reminisce how we fare in life. It's been over three years since the passing of my beloved mother. My life had been tumultuous, blown by a tornado, kind of upside down ever since then. Of course, time does heal and with time, we get to continue living in this world. There're so much yet to learn. 

My handsome brother CD
My Mom didn't get the chance to see the wedding of my younger bother CD. He got married in February 2012, nine months after her passing. On his 'Akad Nikah' day (marriage covenant), I could feel my Mom's presence in the Masjid (mosque). I was not alone, my sisters felt it too. It was a surreal and touching moment. We like to think that she gave her blessing and she approved the union. Tears of joy for the occasion as well of tears of longing for our beloved Mom surrounded our families. A moment of quietude to appreciate. We hugged and kissed as the mark of another beautiful memories to cherish in our family history book.   




CD and his bride Aida
In my struggle to cope with my loneliness, life's struggle and personal issues, I didn't record down another important episode in our family history prior to this wedding, i.e. the wedding of our father. Yes, he got himself a new wife. Urghhh...

I didn't bother to write a post about this episode because I was against it earlier on. I can't accept the fact that my father had the heart to remarry after my Mom. How could he replace her! It's out of my intellect to think how easy it was for a man to forget his deceased wife! It got even worst when he decided to do it so hastily, about five months after my Mom's passing. 

However, as time goes by, and with much turmoil and major misunderstanding with the step mother, finally we could really say that we began to love her. She was not really a bad person. Our father needed her in order to live longer. She takes good care of him and we could not ask for more. 

Additionally, we got ourselves four step siblings from her previous marriage. They are a cool young bunch. They never interfere with our ways and they are adapting very well to our family culture. So I have nothing to complain. Surprisingly, we do look alike. Nobody could tell that we are from a different mother. 

February 2012 - one for the album. Still not a complete family photo though.

Life is full of the unexpected. Life is full of surprises. YES. Sometimes I hate surprises. Well... We planned but Allah is the Master Planner. Allah knows what's best for us. I shall reserve my rebellious nature in matters of religion. We might be in pain, we might be in vain. Nevertheless, surely there will be sunshine after the rain. 

Smile :)

Roses of Venezuela - Hidden beauty in Perdana Botanical Garden, KL

Rose of Venezuela is the name of a beautiful flowering tree that grows in Tropical America and famously grown in many parts of Asia as well. I love the flowers as it was vibrant in colour and unique unlike any other that you have ever seen before. Easiest way to sight this beautiful tree in Malaysia is go to Perdana Botanical Garden or formerly known as The Lake Garden Kuala Lumpur. You can see it aplenty along one of the walkways.

As you walk along the Perdana Botanical Garden in Kuala Lumpur, ensure to enjoy the beauty of each plants especially the trees. You may see that there are varieties of shape, colour, height and splendour. Nature has its beauty displayed for the eyes to feast upon. It calms down your nerve by just contemplating on nature's wonder.  

The real flowers, i.e. the one intact on the tree, I have not taken. I went there often in September but didn't think of writing it here. The photos were taken by chance because I saw a squirrel plucking one of the flowers. It shocked me to realise that the squirrels love eating Rose of Venezuela! 

As I went back home, I did research on these multiple flowers in a flower, only then I know that although it does not have any scent as an attraction factor, it does produce some kind of a sweet nectar that is appealing to the bees, birds including squirrels. No wonder lah :)

The fallen flowers.
This is the culprit. The flower eater. Squirrels love the sweet nectar of these flowers
My best friend taking a brisk walk ahead of yours truly :)
Can be seen the Roses of Venezuela trees lining up the walkway.
It was a nice walk down the pathway in the evening of September before the sun goes down in Perdana Botanical Garden. I love it there because it's the only place in KL that you could forget the stress of life in the concrete jungle and yet the concrete jungle is just nearby beside it. 

Well, have to get back to that shape for my December trip to para... para... paradise.

Children of 21st Century

Little Rafael. Makes me happy.
Who doesn't love children. I adore children. Love them babies in regardless of human's or animals'. All babies are cute to me because they have something grown ups haven't, i.e. the purity and innocence of life. It shows the greatness of our Creator. May Allah bless all babies in this world.

21st century kids knows technology
Inseparable sibling
,
Cousins. They made my heart sing <3 br="">

Birthdays make children happy

Friendship develops at an early age. Look how cute they are!

Children of the 21st century are born with technology. The moment they could see the world, they are surrounded by it. I was born in the 70s. That seems so old. Sigh... Yeah some more counting days to my birthday in October. Huhuhu... This is the reason why I was called to write this posting.

Looking at people with family makes me kind of want to have one my own. However, I have led an adventurous life very few would dare to follow. A rebel by nature and live-life-to-the-fullest is my motto. Well, I thought I would have stopped before I reached my 40th birthday. Well... seems unlikely, now it's only a few days away. Yes I dare to admit that I do not look like my age. No one can tell if they don't know where I'm coming from. Hehehe... I'm blessed with youthful glow, freckle and wrinkle-free complexion. Thank Allah for that. 

Hmmm... back to the topic of children. I'm blessed in a way that all my nieces and nephews love me. I adore each and everyone of them. Sometimes it feels like my heart would burst just by looking at them. They made me want to hug and kiss and smile and happy. It's magical and beautiful moments with children. 

I wonder if I would be able to be a mother one day. 
I wonder if I could be a good mother.
I wonder, I wonder... endlessly.

The biological clock is ticking at yet I am still hoping. Lalala... Amin to my own thoughts.

I am scared of October

Children's craft from dried plants and seeds


Huhuhu... I am scared of the coming month of October. It'll either make me or break me.

Dear Allah...
Please be gentle, for this life is difficult to handle
Every passing memories... I feel it deeply with worries
Will I have a chance, in this borrowed world of evanescence.

Dear Allah...
Please fill my heart with hope, so I could cope
My time is passing, thinking what am I missing
The gentleness, of wholesomeness.

Dear Allah...
Please have mercy, for I want to be happy
Please point that cupid's arrow, to appease my sorrow
I want to love and be loved
Again and stop right there... Amin.

September Counting to December

Unique real plants for sales during Putrajaya Floria Exhibition 2013


Today I had an accident. My most beloved car, the only thing that I have, my bumblebee got hit from the back by an old van unintentionally during a massive jam. My spirit was down. So low I feel like crying. In fact tears are dropping while writing this.

It should be a happy day not a gloomy day. But my heart felt so heavy since a few days back. Heavier today after the accident.

Months without anything to write. I am guilty for abandoning the blog I so loved. The hiatus was essential for my struggling with life and unhappiness.

I have come to a breaking point in my life. A turning point actually. Everything has been reaped away from me. I don't know what else I should lose in this evanescence life in order for me to experience ultimate happiness. It's just too hard.

Please Allah, have mercy upon me.

A new hope has come. I am counting this month September to December. I am leaving it to fate. Where it shall lead me  this time? Seriously I have no idea.

HOPE FOR THE BEST IN DECEMBER. I WANT TO SMILE AGAIN IN DECEMBER.

Soursop as natural remedy to cancer

Facebook is now the new news channel. One can really save a lot of time from flipping through papers and watching the TV to now the latest happenings of the world. It feels like, we  have positively progressing towards closing in the  physical distance of the world.

News travel with a click of a mouse or by the touch of smartphones. How marvellous  Facebook to me is the best thing that has ever happened in social media. Blog now comes second in my list. Oh well... But still blogging is most fulfilling as I could write endlessly.

Now back to facebook. Things people share everyday are amazing stuffs sometimes. Of course I do have those annoying friends who keep on updating their thoughts and activities every few seconds that drives people insane but still I don't really mind it. If that's what makes them sane, then by all means go ahead, be insane all they like. Many a time, facebook made my day by just reading statuses of friends, exchanging comments or by reading updates from pages that I 'liked'.

For me, my facebook usage is mainly to update myself of latest news, keeping in touch with friends that matters and in researching of trends to be useful for my work. Not so much in Sharing my personal stuffs. Scary. I am glad that I'm mature enough to know the harmful side of Facebook .

Today, I am inspired to write this posting because of information I've found in Facebook about cancer. Ever since my Mom died off cervical cancer, anything about cancer will trigger some kind of sadness in me. So I read this information about the natural cure of cancer. It can bdr found from soursop fruit and tree. In Asia this fruit is called 'durian belanda'. One of the tastiest fruits ever to my taste buds . I like this fruits a lot. Couldn't believe that it has a remedial effect to cancer cells.

It makes me sad that I didn't know it earlier. A lot of things came to light only after the passing of my Mom. Sigh....

Well, no matter, if this soursop really is good to anyone else, by all means, please give it a try. Read the article about it here.

Posting this via my smart phone. Will polish it later with pictures. Meantime, take care of your health.

The Importance of education

Here I am on Chinese New Year day, alone. How I missed my old career in the hospitality line. I will be the busiest sosial butterfly doing lohsang the whole month of the New Year. But now my path has changed. I am on another road for some reasons.

Education line is also something I am passionate about. I believe in the importance of education to every human being. It seperates us from one another. Education can change lives from being ignorance to being learned. It helps us to become a better decision maker. Most importantly, it creates our pathway to a career and accumulation or wealth. Now that sums it all.

Most people thought that education can only be had from schools. Well part of it is true but not in totality. I believe that a person must at least complete his/her formal education to a minimum level of a first college degree. Later he/she can choose to either continue to a post graduate studies to be a specialist in his/her chosen career. However, education means knowledge that it should be in balance between academic and a life's degree or a life's lessons. Only then, you get to be a fully functional human being on your way to succeses.

Of course there're lots of successful people out there who are non-formally educated but surely along the way, they educated themselves via other means. For instance, knowledge of survival  using other people's strengths and skills to work things out for you. A good life lesson will enable a person to compensate his/her weaknesses. Good reading habit could make a person a learned human being no less that a graduate person.

This is just my random thoughts of today.

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Mandarin Oranges, Ang Pau and Firecrackers. Wishing all Chinese the best of celebration with friends and family. Mwah! Mwah!

Starting the Engine of 2013

To commemorate the importance of 2013, I kicked start the year by attending a live performance of 27th Anugerah Juara Lagu 2013 in Stadium Putra, Bukit Jalil last Sunday. It turned out to be fun and exciting. More than the expected. Happy :-*

One thing obvious about Malaysia is that it has many good singers. Amazing voices and exquisite performances.

New Year 2013

Great New Year celebration. First with family and second with my best friend in KL. I had a very simple celebration as usual. Just music and lots of people dancing together. I am relieved and almost with feelings of liberation that 2012 has closed its curtain. Now is time to move forward.
