Happiness in a cake

We went back to Malacca to attend my brother in law's Masters convocation. He took Masters in Engineering and flew back from Sabah on biweekly basis to attend the classes. Alhamdulillah, his efforts paid off handsomely.

Then the kids gobbled up the cakes made by my sister in law, in a magic pan.

Fateh, eating his cake like it is the main dish of the day.

Fawwaz with the finished up chocolate cake. Yummy! It was soft and chocolatey.

Azad, my nephew after eating the cake.

Simple happiness in a cake ^_^

Syukur itu indah, Aida

Ibn Qayyim menulis, "Kedudukan redha itu lebih tinggi daripada sabar. Kedudukan syukur itu lebih tinggi daripada redha."

Ramai orang boleh sabar apabila musibah menimpanya. Namun sukar redha selepas apa yang menimpanya dengan selalu mengenangkan kenangan yang pahit itu.

Mungkin ramai orang boleh redha dengan apa yang telah menimpa mereka. Namun mereka belum tentu boleh bersyukur dengan apa yang telah mereka kecapi hari ini.

Aidiladha retreat

Before Aidiladha, we went for a retreat. Booked One World Hotel Junior Suite and spent the night there. It was our first city retreat. Thanks to Ummimon for recommending this to us. I would highly recommend this hotel, even though it was on the higher price bracket per night.

And the plus point is One Utama shopping complex is just a walk away from the hotel.

A refreshing retreat indeed before we were back for Aidiladha on Tuesday.
We even went to Ikea to buy some things as requested by my sisters and mom.

The kids enjoying their dinner at Pancake World, situated in One Utama.
The swimming pool at One World Hotel. Love the pool. And this retreat is actually to bring the kids to enjoy some relaxing time before their exam.
Fateh loves to self pose. This was before checking out at Ikea.
The things that we bought. Oh my, it has been ages that I remembered I went to Ikea.
Fawwaz and Fahri waiting for mummy to search for the elusive rack.
Alhamdulillah, family time well spent.

Tazkirah semalam: Khadijah r.a.

Aida:
Soalan?

Umur Khadijah sebenarnya masa kahwin ngan Rasulullah saw berapa?
Ada orang argue bukan 40 tahun tapi Khadijah sebaya nabi?

En. Suami:
Biasa pendapat 40… tapi mmg ada kata muda lagi.

Soalan balik… apa faedahnya tahu umur dia berapa??? Yg penting usaha dia dalam perjuangkan islam, pengorbanan harta kepada perjuangan Rasulullah. Tu yg paling utama.

Tambahan lagi sebagai contoh:
Cuma dalam surah al kahfi….
Allah sebut… mereka agak ada 7, 9 11 org dalam gua tu…. Tapi Allah tak beritahu berapa (hanya Allah yang tahu berapa)

Kat ayat tu, Allah nak cakap org ni dok sibuk nak tau berapa org padahal bukan itu isi yang Allah nak cerita kat manusia. Yg nak cerita org muda yg bangsawan sanggup tinggalkan kemewahan untuk berada di landasan yg betul…. sekian

Muzium Kesenian Islam

Oh gosh, Blogger has been slow in uploading pictures that this is the only picture that I can upload for the moment.

In fact, this was one of the trips way back like in September to Muzium Kesenian Islam.

Reason being; there was a special exhibition on Hajj organised by Tabung Haji, that we were so excited to reminiscence some old memories, way back in 2006/07.

I have snapped a few pictures on our trip. We saw old passports, and learned how the older jemaah went for their Hajj.

But please do bear the slowness of the picture uploading. Quite a nightmare.

The above picture was the library inside the museum. No one was around and the kids enjoyed themselves.
