down memory lane...

wedding day 19th.march 1989.......20years ago...

i'm happy to share..the greatest moments of my life...i'll celebrating my 20th.anniversary tomorrow..19th.March...may it lasts forever....besides all the tears and sorrow ..i do have a Great and Wonderful life...thank you , sayang.. happy anniversary...!
do mind me..i don't really write and don't know how to...but really feel like writing today...just feel like sharing the moments of my life with all of you out there....

i have known my love hubby...years before we got married...we were actually course-mate..(ITM at that time..)...i fell in love with my course-mate...we started dating towards the end of our studies...and i fell in love with him since..and everyday of my life!...hard to describe 'him' but whenever i look at my boys...there's him inside of each of them....especially his smiles...all my boys have his smiles...

we got married in a very simple ceremony... we were still studying at that time...preparing ourselves before we went to Japan..(Look East Policy programme...thumbs up to Tun Mahathir for such a brilliant ideas)....consist of 2 parts...6 months in Malaysia to learn Japanese language and 6 months in Japan for on-job training...

we came back in nov 89...and i was a pregnant lady...5 months...yup! Aliff was made in Japan....i thanked Allah for giving me... a mild morning sickness...i even climbed Mount Fuji during my first month....of course he didn't know..sshhhh!..did told him....when we reached down....or else..i'm sure he will stop me from climbing...!

when i was there..i ate raw fish ..'daaaa..like i have a choice'.... and fruits everyday...i love apples and pineapples....everytime i passed the fruit stall...and believe me... the smells just like Famous Amos....just can't help it...the pineapples were soooooooo sweet and juicy...as a result for consuming alot of apples and pineapples...Aliff has a beautiful skin...no skin problems at all...
when he was 15...he started to worry...friends start calling him name just because he got nice skin and no pimples....but now he's 19...he is glad that finally got pimples..!!!

"..moral of the story.....eat alot of fruits during pregnancy..ok ladies..!!!"

well....i quit working in 1995..when i have the third son Azeem...life was hectic at that time...travelled from Klang to KL everyday...after sending me to the bus stop..he will travel back to Banting....sending my boys to his parents' house...every working day...6 am from home and reached home after 8 pm.....purghhh it was tiring!!!!

i do have maid before but decided to send them home...having a good maid is a bonus but surrounding will spoil them.....when they start demanding and show faces...send them home...

being a fulltime housewife was not an easy task...i was lost at first...then as time goes by..everything starts falling into a right place....then i started .....quilting, patchwork, smocking, making boxes and so on and on....until today.....

my special thanks to my love hubby for supporting me all the way...to MakOnem (my sifu)
for giving me a chance and believing in me...eventho' she knew that i've never hold a needle before....sometime i wonder...why she always has a confidence in me....to Aunty Ani for bringing back the patchwork fever from US...she went for classes there....and for all we know...we have a small group of quilters......A.Ani, A.Bardot, A.Noy, my two sister in-laws Liza and Dona, cousin Ila..(prof. to be), Yan, Hajarul and Datin Azlin, a friend Linda and last but not least..my mother in-law (finishing her hand-quilting..queen size xegon quilt) and no to forget my neighbouring friends..Oli Tuang..(N.Zealander), Fatimah..(dr. to be), Puspa..(to bad she shifted to Puchong), Shiela and Zayana..(Aliff's friend..)... well ladies....thank you for the great moments that we have and still sharing.....

and to all uncles..especially to Uncle Om..who always said..."aida..u took a wrong course.."..i take it as a compliment .. thanks....i'm proud to tell...Uncle Om was one of the interior designer that involved and designed the royal rooms' renovations...in Istana Negara..( Almarhum Sultan of Selangor as Agung)

and my sons Aliff,Aiqal,Azeem & Adam for being a great supporters..all the way boys!!!

and to my sisters and sister in-law (Long, Ngah, De-bea, Adik, Kak Kay) my brothers, nephews ,nieces and my lil'princess Zahra...thank you so very much...for the surpports and always being there for me....love u all..!

and now i have all of u ..my bloggers friend...million of thanks for sharing..! i'm praying ...may all of us... have a wonderful..beautiful..great life ahead of us..
