Semangat Kejiranan (or not!)

Mumsie baru balik from our neighbours' house for iftar. The family who lives directly behind our house memang friendly giler. The husband is a Chinese convert. A doctor. The wife was also some kind of doctor but is no longer working full time, i think. I memang respect kat this couple. I believe that they live a wholesome life.

When the invitation came yesterday i thought they've invited a whole house of anak2 yatim for buka puasa. Rupanya, they and a bunch of their friends (consisting of their current and old neighbours) has adopted, or rather sponsored, a few boys from a rumah anak yatim in Perak. The boys has been spending the school holidays with their respective foster families and due to go back to Perak tomorrow.

I ni sebenarnya nak cerita that I am not and has never been a good neighbour. Another trait I got from Bapak, i think. I'm the kind of person yang balik rumah terus masuk and never come out to lepak2 outside. I don't do any gardening, to begin with and I'm not interested in the so-called fresh air...So...i hardly know my neighbours...Actually many of them pun macam i jugak. Hardly can be seen outside their houses except when they were getting groceries out of the car! But I'm lucky, I suppose. I have very good and friendly immediate neighbours. Sesekali they come over simply to say hello...I ni, tunggu depa jemput for khenduri barulah i pegi rumah diorang! hehe..tak perlah, i think. As long as hubungan silaturrahim tu dah wujud..betul tak?

Abah, on the other a very good neighbour! Tu lah...Tuhan tu Maha Kaya..pasang-pasang kan kita dengan orang yang boleh balancekan our lives....Alhamdulillaaaaahhhhh....

Hobi: Tangkap Gambar

Just want to share with you, since I'm in the mood, the products of my latest no particular order...

like bapak...i love taking pictures for as long as i can remember...bapak bought me my first camera - a Yashica - when i went to UK for my studies and i've not looked back. Late last year, i bought a DSLR - and i enjoy taking pictures even more!

Unfortunately, unlike bapak..i don't have the patience of sending the pictures for printing so all of the pictures i've taken are kept in various files in all of my laptops and computers!! (chewah...macam lah i ada banyak computer!).

Of course, zaman bapak dulu, we were still using kenalah print kalau nak tengok gambar-gambar tu...but the thing about bapak was that he will take time to susun alll the photos in nice albums...he'll date the albums and categorize them...

Zaman sekarang kan kita dah pakai memory card....and anak bapak sorang ni tak de kosa nak print gambar and susun susun...i just love to take pictures and then syok sendiri depan computer!

Selamat Berpuasa...

Not too late to wish all my friends and family a good Ramadhan, kan?! Baru 5 Ramadhan hari ni...

Hope you guys are having a good Ramadhan thus far...moga semua sihat dalam menjalani ibadah puasa and all the extra ibadah of sembahyang terawih and mengaji Quran...and preparing lovely dishes for the family (ni pun I'm sure di kira ibadah juga!)

Mumsie is having a relatively easier time this year...mungkin sebab anak2 dah biasa berpuasa and more importantly, I have a maid. A reliable one, so far. Plus, Ramadhan has not really started for me, yet. hehe...

What have i been feeding the family? Macam-macam! hehe...first 2 days of Ramadhan, since it was a weekend...i masak lah...masak nasi with all the favourite lauks of orang-orang yang berpuasa - Abah, KakNgah and Sarah as well as MakSU. We even did some baking. Chocolate chip cookies and a butter cake! I realized whilst baking that anak-anak I dah besar...dah boleh harap kat dapur! I only needed to put the ingredients together...they did everything else!! Alhamdulillaaahhh ...

But since Monday Abah ordered me to get food from the Putrajaya Bazaar Ramadhan...dia nak nasi kerabu laaa...nasi beryani laaa...anak2 nak nasi ayam laaa...roti john since Mumsie tak puasa, he said i should make the trips to the Bazaar...okeylaaa...bagi chan. Tapi i told them that once i start puasa i am not willing to go through the jam and heat and ramai orang to go get food!! I would rather cook at home!

Esok our neighbour ajak berbuka and terawih kat rumah dia. Apparently they are inviting some anak yatim to their house and they want us to join them. So sweet, kan?! So, I'm looking forward to that...

Well...i hope you're having a good time as we are!!
