Krispy Kreme Joy Run

Our first run, definitely not the last. 5 km at Universiti Malaya. We even had to climb 2 hills for the track (and one of the hills was really really really testing my endurance).

I reached first, but Fawwaz had blisters (thus, my husband was waiting for him. Personal time to finish the 5 km run was 42 minutes.

What keep me going was, I saw a pakcik ran without wearing the shoes (tabiklah pakcik!). I even had to catch my breath at few checkpoints (with 4 colour station - hence it was called Larian Spektra) and had a drink halfway through the course.

One guy was carrying his baby using a baby carrier *oh wow*. And we already was short of breath and feel tired just a few minutes running (well, that explains that we are really not fit *reality check*).

Nevertheless, it was a lot of fun. Food sponsors are - Krispy Kreme (glazed donuts!), 100 Plus, Gardenia, Indocafe and even Slurpee!!!

There was a free photo booth, but I think we were just too tired to wait in lines.

Hence, the pictures after the run.

We had the opportunity to attend the talks by Dr Zakir Naik at Stadium Bukit Jalil. It was a sold out event, and the tickets are actually free.My husband mentioned about his talk last week, thus I was glad we went to this talk.

The event started at 5 p.m., Dr Zakir Naik's slot is only at 9 p.m. Since we need to rush back because we asked my parents in laws for a few hours to look for our 5 kids, we were there from 5 p.m. till 7 p.m. It was raining cats and dogs when we reached there. And the surau was overspilled with people waiting for their turn for Asar prayers.

Yes, we miss the talk by Dr Zakir Naik. But, we heard a collection of talks delivered by his son, and some of the Muslim reverts.

People come in thousands. In fact, my husband's friend said the event lasted till 3 a.m.

Alhamdulillah. And I am grateful that even though I was hesitant at first to go, since all the seats were sold out (main stadium), we managed to secure seats to the next stadium.

Happy belated birthday my dear Fahri

Dear Fahri,

I know that you questioned why you were born in April, rather than November or December like your brothers and sister.

I love you, nevertheless. Please be yourself. I love that you have your father and your grandfather (both sides) to look to for always going to the mosque or musolla.

Thanks for always helping me, but you always make fun of your brothers.

May you grow to be the man that will always do everything for the rewards of the Hereafter, like your father.
