He so fascinated by the light coming through the window. As adult we might just ignore it, but to him it is such a mystery and a magical thing altogether. This little boy has taught me a lot of lesson. Small things do matter too mama. See it from a different view. Open your heart and you can see magic unfolds in front of you everyday!

Today is your day

DSC_9366resize

Dear sweet boy of mine,

Today is an extra special day for you. It’s because today is your day, my baby. Today you reached one year old. How amazing and awesome is that. I am so in love and happy to see that you have grown to a very healthy baby boy.

Khaled, you started calling mama and babah when you were nine months old. It was such a joyful moment for us. Your favourite television show is babytv and how you loved to dance when they play out the “It’s today your special day” song. You clapped your hands to show how excited you are to me and babah. Your favourite biscuit is Jacob Weetameal. You like to drink plain water every time and also mama’s milk. Your favorite fruit is of course banana. You can have plenty of them at one go. Bath time is your favorite time of the day. If I let you be, you can spend your entire day in the water. You are a water baby. Sometimes you get naugthy and you crawled slowly to the toilet without us noticing and after that nenek will have a shock of her life to see you in there grinning widely. But don’t worry, the toilet now is always locked and can only be opened by adults.

Oh baby, I love everything about you. I love how sweet your mouth smells after each meal. I love your crazy hair when you wake up in the morning. I love your chubby legs. I can kiss them  all day long and still not be satisfied. I thank Allah for all the blessings and pray that you will always be under his protection.

Life Unscripted

This mother and daughter portrait session was so much fun. Nik (the mom) and her baby girl Jasmin, were so gorgeous and very natural. I told Nik just to relax and enjoy the moment with her daughter. No stiff poses, no fake smiles and don’t look at my camera, I told her. I need you to be you. And for Jasmin, well, let her do whatever she wants. Let her be real.

So here it is, I love this session so much. There is nothing quite like the bond between a mother and a daughter. A very special out of this world kinda bond.  I hope that 20 years from now, Nik and Jasmin would be able to look back and remember these joyous moments together. I hope that when Jasmin is all grown up and have a children of her own, she can always look back at the portraits and recall the special bond that they shared. Because you see, in the mother’s eyes,  a child is always a child, no matter how big or how old they are.

I am grateful to be there to capture the endless joyful moments. Moments that are so pure and unscripted.

Remember

When you are surrounded by your loved ones, eating good food and sipping hot coffee, you easily lost track of the time. Suddenly it dawned on you that today, is the best day ever in your life. And why? You get to celebrate your birthday with your family once again and for that, I am deeply grateful.

Secretly I wished that day would never ended.

Some people are worth melting for…

The theme for Arlia and Ariana birthday was from the movie “Frozen” and what a  better way to end a party with a dip in the pool. What a blast those kids had and I bet the mamas also had so much fun.

Happy Birthday Arlia and Ariana! Enjoy the photos.

I will be celebrating my 40th birthday tomorrow. Absolutely feeling very fabulous!

Here’s a few list of things that I’ve learned and gathered throughout my life. Nothing fancy, just wanted to share it with you guys.

Remember that it’s OK to not be OK. Nobody is perfect. Seek help from someone you trust and never stop believing that something good will come your way. Never stop praying and make dua to Allah to fulfill your wishes. But, if you did not get what you wished for, then stay positive. There must be a reason for everything. Only Allah is the best planner. Allah Azza Wajal says “And it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know”. (2:216, Al-Quran)

Solat 5 times a day is extremely important. Every inch of your body and soul craves that link to the Almighty.

I learned through my first marriage that you cannot expect people to change. You can only change yourself to become a better person. Do it for your sake. Not for anybody else. When you are happy, everybody around you will feel the positive energy that you’re sending. Your day will be much brighter and pleasant.

There’s a reason why you have two ears and only one mouth. Use it wisely.

Remain humble.

Your mind is very powerful tool. You can do anything you want just as long as you believe in yourself. You can Qatam Al-Quran, you can drop a few kilos to get healthy, you can quit sugar, you can run that marathon, you can leave an abusive relationship, you can quit smoking and what not. You can do just about anything if you put your mind to it. The key word here is BELIEVE in yourself. No excuses. Allah will not Change the Condition of a People until They Change Themselves.

Not everybody will like you and that’s OK. You don’t need to please everybody.

There’s no such thing as soul mate, you need to work everyday to strengthen your relationship with your spouse. Communication is very important. You need to tell them what you feel. Never suffer in silence. Life is too short.

After the divorce, I thought my life would end, but it didn’t. I fell in love again.

During confinement period, please listen to your mom when she said “Not to drink that ice water”. You will thank her when you reach your forties.

Kiss your kids goodnight every night. Kiss your wife/husband goodnight every night. You might not wake up to tell them you love them the next morning.

Have time for yourself even if it’s only for a few hours every week. Take a walk alone. Learn to quiet your mind and enjoy the scenery.

Learn to forgive yourself and others too. You’ll sleep better.

Keep it simple.

You don’t need to wear makeup if you don’t feel like it. You are beautiful just the way you are.

Appreciate the things you have even though you don’t have that much.

Life in Black and White

My little boy, always on the move, always on the lookout for tiny adventures. He doesn’t need to go far. He has everything he needs in the bedroom. It’s just like a big playground to him. What lurks behind the curtain? He can stare at them with his wide eyes, full of amusement. What’s there beneath the pillow? Everything screams joy and excitement to him. Oh how wonderful life is at his age. My lovely little boy, you fill my heart with so much love. You kept me on my feet most of the hour but I can never really get bored with you. I look forward to more tiny adventures with you my precious boy.

…till we meet again

DSC_7917resize

No words can describe the sadness. I felt numb, sad and angry at the same time. Angry because they were innocent people. Sad that their lives was cut short. Numb, I don’t understand the purpose of killing another human being. Why? Why do you have to rob one’s happiness? How could they? This is mad. My tears flow as they were transported to the van, patiently waiting for them. Personally, I don’t know any of them. But I can feel it. I feel the lost. Watching the mother helplessly crying to her departed son, a small boy crying asking to see his mother for the last time. These are all torturing. Ya Allah, we beg for your mercy. Ya Allah, we beg for your forgiveness.  Ya Allah, please ease their burden.

Al-Fatihah…till we meet again my brothers and sisters.
