The misery of loneliness...

When I am writing this topic, Fuad is not around because he has to work and earn money for the family and he will only reach home at midnight. Yes. I am alone but I am not lonely.

There are two terms that are quite similar in pronunciation but noticeable difference between the meanings; Aloneness and loneliness. Alone is to be by oneself. You may or might not feel lonely when you are alone and the only important condition is there is no one else around you. To be lonely, is to suffer the feelings of loneliness, to want people, social contact, and yet be unable to get any. Given this fact, it is quite possible to feel lonely when you are alone, and it is also to feel lonely when you are not alone.

Meanwhile, we can separate loneliness into two other types which is the ‘state of loneliness’ and ‘trait loneliness’. State of loneliness is more generated because of the environment rather than the person. For example a person feels loneliness because he cannot go out to play football since it’s raining heavily outside. On the other hand, trait loneliness is generated from the person and they tend to feel lonely most of the time. So regardless of the situation or circumstance when you ever think about it, you are still lonely.

It has been a month since the King of Pop died and the cause of his death is still under a shroud of controversy. Michael’s sister La Toya stated that Michael was the ‘loneliest man in the world’ with no real friends and isolated from his family at the time of his death. So this is another piece of evidence implying that wealth and fame are not everything in this world and it is not a guarantee of a happy life. His loneliness had drove him to become the ghost of himself as he was continuously changing his appearance from 1980’s as like Michael was searching for a new and better look all the time.

Do you know that once we found the right person, entered the right relationship which is marriage our loneliness would also fade away? We do not need one thousand people; we just need one special and correct person. The particular person who can be called as an attachment figure gives us a sense of security and reassurance us to face the world once again. Huh. How magical life is, isn’t it? :-)

Hence, for those who are experiencing loneliness there are things that you can do. Maybe you can get a pet or can strengthen your existing relationships or start to find your Mr Right or Ms Future Wife. For those who already have people in their live, maybe you can get to know one another better and enjoy the existing friendship with your friends. Oh, please get yourself involved in activities since it can create or expand your circle of friends and combat your loneliness.

So here I would love to share the lyrics of Michael Jackson’s late song ‘Chilhood’ and hope we will be able to understand more what Michael had tried to tell us from his lonely heart.

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for the world that I come from
'Cause I've been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart...
No one understands me

They view it as such strange eccentricities...
'Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me...

People say I'm not okay
'Cause I love such elementary things...
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the ChildhoodI've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?

People say I'm strange that way
'Cause I love such elementary things,I
t's been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like fantastical stories to share
The dreams I would dare, watch me fly...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me.
The painful youth I've had

Have you seen my Childhood

If you are still feeling all alone---> God has the cure. He loves you. Find Him. ;-)

A joyful July

Fuad is doing preparation for his presentation tomorrow morning and I made a decision to stay awake until he finishes doing the power point slides. I love being a wife since I have a full time partner in my life and also in my room.

Oh yes. I just redecorated our room last week when I have had spare time. I changed the carpet to a bigger one so that it occupies half of the tiles in our room. Magically, even though it was just a small modification to the older one but it has changed a lot the atmosphere of our room now. Yes. We like it a lot! The carpet is so big and thick when unexpectedly we slept jadedly on it yesterday as both of us were hopelessly tired from our hectic weekend programme. Surprisingly, it was comfortable enough since we slept in a good snoring melody sounds till morning.

Since for the past two weeks back I have experienced so many good memories that I could not explain it here. It’s a priceless moment to meet again my best friend in university and spent one whole day with her in a trip to Genting. I was overjoyed and thrilled to go back to the place where we used to have fun and released stress while studying in university. And once again we went to the same place with the same reason and gladly for this time we made a big achievement for ourselves. Both of us had dream for a long time to try the ‘ Space Shot’ ride. It is like a big and tall tower in Genting and everyone who had come there would try it at least once in a lifetime. And this time, finally when we are in the age of 24 we made a promise to try it; and thank God we made it and proved ourselves we are not chicken. :-)

This is my last week as a full time housewife when next week I will start working. It seems like you will be reading different and more adventurous stories in times ahead. I can’t wait to experience that and I am hoping I will still have plenty of times to write and share it with my readers. Insya Alllah.

I love to say this to cheer myself everyday ‘the gift of life unwraps itself through time; all we need to do is sit back and enjoy its contents’. Yes. I am so optimistic about life so that I can smile when I wake up every day in the morning. Oh dear sunshine please brighten up my days and darling happiness please find me and make my days as colourful as always.

Oh..Fuad is calling me saying “ sayang..it’s time to sleep”. It’s a wrap for today. Good night!

We came, We learned, We enjoyed

A trip to the most historical city in Malaysia ----->> Melaka. The trip was on ..wait a minute..let me check on my calendar..ahaks..on the 4th and 5th July 2009. I know it’s a bit of an outdated news ..:D

What I like most about this trip is both of us did a last minute plan. All these time, we have planned to have a long vacation to Langkawi Island since the very last time we visited the place was during our primary school and everybody was talking about the new Langkawi, with its modern sophisticated look. I crazily want to go there as I have missed the trip on early this year when my whole bunch of JB family went there. I suggested to hubby and he agreed but the problem is being a doctor you have to be prepared to sacrifice your time and that means your holiday too!!

Hence, when there was oblige wedding ceremony to attend which take place in Umbai, Melaka, he ecstatically recommended us to take this chance and stay for a night in Melaka. I was thrilled to this idea indeed! Notwithstanding the fact that we would stay only for a night, it is better off than staying listlessly in our house during weekend.

So after helping here and there and not forgetting to be the instant wedding assistant photographer, we said goodbye to everyone and shoot to the city of Melaka to book a hotel. Have I mentioned that we have not made any hotel reservation yet before making the decision to spend our weekend in Melaka??? Yes, the answer is NO and that was the most brilliant plan that I could think of. (It means sarcastic in a polite manner) The result; we had to go to EVERY hotels ever existed in Melaka. Money had to put aside as priority went to finding a place to stay a night.

Arrrghhh..Melaka seems like a Las Vegas city during weekend, crowded with loads of people from around the world. Hubby suggested if there’s no room at all we could stay at his grandmother’s house situated in Klebang, Melaka which is 30 minutes driving from the city. Meanwhile, deeply in my heart I wanted to spend the best of our time together with no interruption from familiar faces. Hence finally after a tiring but yet amazing hotel exploration around Melaka we managed to find one room at Orchid Hotel situated in the heart of that city. There’s only one room left for us; ‘studio suite’. With no hesitation we agreed upon the gift rewarded to us after a tired walk. (Yes, we did walk since it’s faster than driving).

So the rest are left untold but the pictures could maybe explain everything. (The truth is I am feeling a bit dizzy to continue writing.) Hope you will enjoy watching us posing like school students enjoying their very first school trip.

P/s: I should bring along my book on our next vacation to jolt down hubby’s never ending explanation on history, places etc, but definitely I learned a lot on our history from this trip and it made me appreciate more of the freedom that we gain today:-) .

As a gentle reminder I would like to remind all readers that this is a continuation of my previous entry. I am highly appreciated for the responds I received from the readers whom I adore very much. I have reached home in KL on Sunday evening. Everything is back to reality again. (At JB home I was pampered like a queen!)To Uswah, I haven’t seen you for a while. You must been busy adapting with your new schedule I bet. ;-)

Ok. Let us get back to the main story here. I have told you yesterday that I was lost in my own world due to the reason of having no book at all to read. As I was feeling better today, I went happily to the MPH bookstore to find the Melissa Hill’s book. Oh God, it’s a bad day to shop I guess. They received lots of new book racks and they were doing a small renovation for the shop. Meanwhile I could not delay any further the exhilaration of going inside the shop and grab my book! I asked the girl who was standing at the cashier counter whether it is safe for me to go inside. She replied with a sweet smile. I got the meaning and cheerfully tried to find the book.

Ermm.. There’s still one problem. The books were everywhere. Some were still inside the boxes, some were left dumped on the floor (pity to the books..:( ), and some were on the racks unorganised that made me almost impossible to find my book! I spent circa half an hour to make few rounds at the shop when suddenly..I mean suddenly...I saw Melissa Hill ‘Before I Forget’ on the corner of one rack at the back of the shop. Pheww..Alhamdulillah.. Gladly when I was queuing to pay the book, the girl who helped out to look for the book whispered to me ‘You are lucky. It was the only and the last one of Melissa Hill’s book that we have right now. Hope you enjoy reading it’

Ngeeeeee.....Happy!! Problem solved!

At the mean time, I have all collections from Tony Parson’s book. You should buy and read them. He’s extremely brilliant in putting words to make it as beautiful as always, the stories were consistently moving in all books and the characters were at all times amazing. I wish I could do the same to Melissa Hill’s as I only have three from her overall books. One thing that I like most about her books is you can’t put it down and it will keep you turning the pages until the very end. It feels like riding a rollercoaster or better than that!! *wink*wink*

After that, I headed to one of the shoe shop. I always wanted and love to wear comfort shoes. For the time being, I have a black Pierre Cardin shoes which I wear almost the time. It was a gift from hubby. I will wear it during formal function or when I like to (It’s flexible comfort!). On the other hand, if I want to be more feminine, I will wear my white Hush Puppies shoes. It was also a gift from hubby. It’s a wedge heel design hence even though it’s quite high it could still support my overall weight. If I want to go to mamak stall, market or to be more specific to be more casual I would put on my brown Scholl sandal. The design is simple and simplicity is the best. Hence, I always dream to have one good sporty shoe because the one that I have now is not too comfort while wearing it. Today I bought Nike shoes. It’s black and I think it’s gorgeous.

So, I am proudly to declare that I only have 4 pairs of shoes. If you happen to meet me, don’t forget to see which shoes I am wearing on that day!

See you again. I have a date with Ms Hill. ;-) ( Dismiss with a polite smile) !!

Book Maniac

I live with story books throughout my life. People who are close to me will realise this. It is a must for me to bring along my story books whenever I go. I know this will make your head think twice on this matter. I don’t blame you. My husband when he first saw me carry my books on our first honeymoon was shocked to death to see me enjoying my books more than the scenery of the beautiful landscape of Lanjut. As far as I could remember, it all started when I was 6 years old when I could spell the words well. I would imagine myself to be part of the story and read it under my bed that later on brought me to wear an eyeglass.

Books have become part of my daily routine just like bathing, eating and brushing teeth. I could not live a day without it

I have finished out reading my very last story book ‘The Last to Know by Melissa Hill’ on last 3 days and I feel completely lost now. I was in my hometown Johor Bahru during weekend and the bookstore in JB do not have Melissa Hill’s or even Tony Parson’s books. I just planned to buy a new one today but sadly I am not in my best health hence I fill in my day at the moment by reading few of my favourite blogs. Oh, thanks to the technology! It helps me to lighten up my day =)

Hope I will get better soon and buy the next book on my top of the list; ‘Before I Forget-by Melissa Hill’

Health Awareness

According to the World Health Organization 60 years ago, they defined health as ‘a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing’. Guess what? By this barometer description to define human health, I could say approximate 95% human being around globe could be said to be unhealthy for most of their lives. Today, health is considered as a subjective awareness of wellbeing. And of course, as all of us know ,the prerequisites for wellbeing are still sufficient amounts of healthy food and physical activity and adequate amounts of sleep, as well as a healthy environment and good social relationship or to be specific ; the choice of circle of friends.

There is completely no doubt that regular physical activity is good for our health. Sports, in particular can improve overall fitness, stimulate body metabolism, and reduce stress from a tiring working day, and prevent cardiovascular diseases. (Dr Fuad helped me a lot to create bombastic medical terms this time.) Some types of sport, however, have very slight health benefits but have a high risk injury such as boxing, hang-gliding (flying fox) and surprisingly football! Other sporting activities can result in damaged muscles and joints if practised without proper training and instruction. Hence it is important to have a professional certified practitioner who could supervise, monitor and at the same time instruct us to follow the right way during the training session. We have to be mindful of the most frequent injuries are to muscles and these often pass unnoticed at first.

On the previous early of June I made myself registered to an aerobic class. I was so thrilled to do the exercise as during student life we were pampered by the facilities provided by the university and I made a full used of it. When I was young I made friend with lots of boys and I was getting used to having an energetic healthy life as sport is the medium approach to fulfil it. Alhamdulillah I am so lucky to have a brilliant instructor who can teach me a combination of physical exercise with a dance movement which I love so much. I have a basic dance skill which I learned at my primary school. I was an active student who loved arts and dancing performances were my best memory ever that could be captured during my childhood time. For this reason, by taking this aerobic class is such an opportunity of a life time! I could not resist it when I first saw the business card of the owner of the studio when my husband handed it to me.

It is a muslimah aerobic class therefore we do not have to cover the aurah as in public place. It’s one of the reason I joined it because it give freedom to my body to move unreservedly without being worried of the existence of male creature. The main reason of joining aerobic class is not to make myself become as light as feather but to gain a healthy body and live a healthy life. I am not a big fan of skinny body type since forever but as long as I have a good body proportion it is more than enough for me.

So friends, you don’t have to belong to a sports club to be fit. Even gentle physical exercise is healthy if practised daily. Maybe just 30 minutes a day of climbing stairs, brisk walking, and swimming or cycling have beneficial effects on our blood pressure, pulse rate and blood vessels. Since cardiovascular diseases are the most common causes of death in industrialised countries such as Malaysia, the effect of regular exercise is to prolong life. Because physical activity stimulates the metabolism, it reduces the risk of contracting other diseases and improves generate fitness and quality of life, especially as people age.

Even though you have not include to start exercise in your ‘what-to-do-list’ in your New Year resolution, believe me there is no reason for an excuse because our body is the greatest gift from God and we will be asked in the hereafter on how we used it. Thus stop making excuses and start exercise NOW! :PP

My hectic weekend

Phew..My last weekend was totally packed with lots of activities from early morning of Saturday till Sunday evening. My parents with my youngest brother came by and stayed at one of the hotel in Kuala Lumpur since my old man had a job need to be done during two whole days. At the same time cousins of my husband’s side were the guest of the house for 2 nights as there were a wedding reception of my hubby’s cousin, Akob on Saturday and Friday. I assume you can imagine how busy I was during my weekend. =) But one way or another I was extremely delighted to speed up the time to welcome my parents and provide them with special treats in terms of good quality time.

On the day upon my dad’s arrival he called to let me know they have safely arrived while hubby suggested joining them breakfast at the hotel where they were staying. I smiled joyfully. =0 Dad reminded us to come before 8:30 am where in his world; punctuality plays a vital aspect of his life whereas I am still behind him regarding time management. We could only arrived 15 minutes before 9am and I was trying my best to hide behind the pillar of the lobby hotel when finally my mom could see me playing hide and seek with her. Gosh!! Blame the alarm clock please... Daddy’s face is always not at his best when he is hungry and I perfectly contributed to ruin his mood on early Saturday. Daddy...I am truly sorry.. =(((

As the foods started to fill in into his stomach, dad’s mood slowly changed to its normal condition. Thank God! Hubby and I then rushed back to Setiawangsa home without mommy coming along us as she claimed she had some works need to be submitted on Monday. The three of us including my youngest brother Hafiz went to a Wangsa Maju Mosque to catch up with the solemnization ceremony. It was a simple and quick one.

My little Hafiz requested to his big ‘brother’ Fuad to bring him to Petrosains in KLCC and he granted the wish. Circa 1pm off we drove to KLCC. The little one was excited during the 4 hours venture in Petrosains because hubby treated him like a prince junior. =) It was exactly my fifth trip to Petrosains and I believe after having our own kids we shall visit again Petrosains in future. Even though we were tremendously exhausted but we had a great time together.

We had a dinner at the Lala Restaurant at Jln Raja Muda in Kampung Baru as a special treat from hubby to his in-laws. My parents will never miss out to have dinner at this restaurant whenever they come to Kuala Lumpur. It reminisce back the memories we had with my late grandmother who loved to eat the foods served here. It’s quite expensive but definitely worth for your money. ;-)

The next morning I woke up at 5:30am and I could not sleep back afterwards. Lesson I’ve learned; Never repeat the same mistake twice. We managed to arrive approximate at 8am on Sunday and daddy greeted us at hotel lobby with a great satisfaction face. We made sure we eat well today as it’s the last of the breakfast sponsorship by mom and dad for two days in a row at that hotel. Weehuuu..Thanks a lot to both of you.

Around 12:30 pm all the family members of hubby’s side have already gathered at home and we arrived at the bride’s place at 1pm. We tried to eat as fast as possible as mommy and daddy wanted to pay a visit to abah and ummi at 3 pm. Mom and dad then came by when finally at 4:30pm they drove back to JB.

I am tired but in all honesty I am happy. Please come again mommy and daddy and lighten up my weekend once more.
