Ramadhan 1436 H

Monday, July 20, 2015

I am not the only one who feels like the month seems to pass in a blink of an eye, no?

This year's Ramadhan is very different from the ones I'd experienced in previous years. I had my break fast meals at home with my family every single day, except for the two times that I wasn't able to fast and had dinner with the gfs and kareshi instead, which is also the only time that I met him during the whole month. For the first time in my life, I completed the whole terawih! To think of it, I did more terawihs this year than I ever had for the past 24 years of my life combined. I also enjoyed my Quran classes at the mosque. Most of the time I left the class wondering what took me so long to start reading and understanding this holy book.

I mean it's weird now that I find it a pleasure when I can read a Japanese(hiragana+katakana) book but I can't say the same for the Quran urghblearghhhh #messeduppriorities

I'm not proud to say this but I never really understood why people are so eager for this month and sad when it's gone cos it feels like any other month to me. But this year it was a completely 180 degree change for me and I thank Him for allowing me to experience it all. The last night of Ramadhan was a very very emotional one, something that the twenty year old me had never felt before. I'm also not proud of who I was during my pre-hijab days about two years ago but I hope I'll be an improved version of myself from now on.

May we continue to be at the best of iman even after this beautiful month is over. *wipes tears*

Okay, moving on to happier things now! Apart from all these, another highlight of this month is....

I was totally elated when I saw the new her and my arms immediately reach out for her. Alhamdulillah, so happy for you darling and may He ease this new journey of yours.


Two days before Ramadhan ended, the usual suspects and I celebrated the July babies' birthday. After going all the way to the other end of Singapore just to see my future house(kemarok lolol) and Ira's, we had a surprise at the park nearby. We've been celebrating our birthdays together for more than a decade now and I can't be any more thankful for having every single one of you in my life.

May we all be the best of friends like we are now till the day we have wrinkles tattoo-ed on our foreheads.

Meanwhile, enjoy your Hari Raya guys! Go easy on those rendang and all ya :D
