Magnifying your ibadah in Ramadhan

How would I rate my ibadah performance this time around? I would give a scale of 5 over 10 (sobs). I feel that I have not spent that much time on Ramadhan. I do the usual things, reading the Quran and performing my tarawikh at home.

I love the fact that during Ramadhan, my family is with me at home for buka puasa. Except for the 2 oldest boys in the family, they have been breaking their fast at the surau and perform their tarawikh over there.

Anyhow, Fateh's drama of not fasting only lasted in the first day of Ramadhan. Thus, he has been fasting non stop since Day 2.

My cookie baking plan has been abandoned for the moment, because I don't know whether we are able to bake cookies in the last weekend of Ramadhan (hehehe, my bad).

We will be celebrating Raya at my grandma's next week. So, if this is my last post during Ramadhan (yes I know I am a very bad blogger) may you have a blessed Ramadhan and let us magnify our ibadah in the last 10 days of Ramadhan.

Dr Tawfeeq advised us to keep doing on charity like giving RM100 per day towards the end of Ramadhan. Such a simple and practical advise. And I do hope the sadaqah deeds will be done on daily basis in the last 10 days of Ramadhan.

Ballonimal Land

Went to IPC @ Damansara to view the balloons a day before Ramadhan. I was impressed with the team who assembled the balloon. Look at how they even have variety of greens for the leaves.

Even though the space is quite small and limited, the kids enjoyed the balloons on display.

Hence, the pictures below for memory safekeeping.

Ramadhan 2016

Ramadhan kali ini, Fateh sudah mula belajar berpuasa. Alhamdulillah, disebabkan cuti sekolah minggu kedua adalah minggu pertama puasa, maka anak-anak dapat sesuaikan diri untuk berpuasa dengan selesa di rumah.

Hari pertama, Isnin lepas, Fateh sempat berpuasa sehingga 2 petang. Dek kerana dia kurang makan, maka rugi juga dia berbuka pabila sudah separuh hari. Dia hanya mengalas perut dengan sekeping roti dan beberapa keping biskut.

Lantas, hari kedua membuahkan hasil. Fateh berjaya puasa penuh, insya Allah sehingga hari ini. Moga-moga dia terus istiqamah minggu hadapan, apabila sesi persekolahan bermula semula.

We have a historian in the making

Fahri requested for a trip to A Famosa.

We were (literally) shocked, since we know that this is such an unusual request that we keep asking, "Betul ke nak pergi A Famosa?"

And he said that he wanted to go there. Because we went to visit historical places, only Fahri and Faiq were with us. Well, you know that your other kids are not interested, hehehe..

We also climbed the St. Paul's Hill. This trip satisfied Fahri's curiosity, thus it was nice fulfilling his request.

Faiq, look at the camera!!!
