I came as one of the designers vip guest, but I helped my way backstage and just loved seeing the collections and models getting ready and rehearsing their walk!:) Kudos to the organizers, crew, designers, and sponsors for organizing a great event. Btw mind the date on the photos, obviously the camera was a bit confused there:p

Forever Grateful.

I haven't been in the best of health these past 5 days and I had an exam on Sunday. So it was a tough one.

When you become independant, working away from home and being sick, you start to remember how amazing it was when you always had your mom by your side to take care of you. I know I'm turning 24 this year, but I have to admit, when I got home over the weekend, I constantly craved for my mom's attention and she looked after me just the way she did the last 23 years of my life. Eventhough I knew she didn't have to, since I'm a grown adult. But, she did. Words just can't describe how that made me feel. I started crying when she hugged me and took some iced-water to pour on my head. A mother's love is unconditional. It made me realize, no matter how old I get, or no matter how 'independant' I claim to be, I will always need my Ummi.

One day if my Ummi no longer has the strength to take care of her family, I hope and pray that I will always be there for her and give her the love and affection that she had for me. Ameen.

"If you tell your brother his faults privately, then you have carried out your responsibility well, but if you tell him his faults in public, then you have stripped him naked in front of people."- Imam Shafi

Recap of 2011.

Just a recap of the most memorable things that happened in 2011=)

1.The Little Tea-Party with Hana Tajima. This was when I really started to know all these lovely ladies on a personal level and realy clicked.
2. Impromptu Family Vacation to Jakarta and Bandung. It was the perfect escape from work and a great excuse to have fun and be closer to my family. Not to mention experiencing the beauty of Allah's creation in yet another foreign land.

3. Starting my masters studies in UPM.

4. Making my first appearance on live television. It wasn't anything big but my whole family was in front of the TV watching and that was such a sweet memory for me:)

5. Teaching this particular batch of students and seeing them perform well in my class was one of the greatest feelings i could never have experienced elsewhere.

6. Having awesome bestfriends since school who have always been there for me. You know who you are! 

7. Being engaged and to soon be married to the one and only man I fell in love with.  :')

Bismillah. 2012. May Allah bless us with His mercy, love, and guidance to face the challenges of yet another new year. And may we grow stronger, better Muslims, Insyallah. Ameen.
