: : An Iftar of Honor : :

An Iftar of Honor - gila poyo tahap 'cipan'zee!!!

I was particularly touched when my students, Nana and Mamat (brother-and-sister) had kindly invited me to join them for the iftar meal at their house. (..segan pon ada..eh..reti segan ka aku ni? hohoho..rezeki jangan ditolak;p) Since I would be having class with Nana at 5.30pm, I deliberately chose Tuesday. As the class ended an hour before the iftar, I spent the time chit-chatting with the siblings. (..sampai la azan berkumandang menandakan waktu berbuka..hehehe..)

Whoa~ Large servings! The table was literally filled with pretty much all the classic fare; fish head curry, spicy blend tom yam, fish relish, beef tongue stewed in gravy sauce, kangkung belacan, fresh leafy raw herbs (ulam), sambal belacan etc. (..dadah pon ada..eh..dadih la..gila banyak..terasa diriku seperti jin yg kelaparan! hahaha..) Cold and hot drinks as well. (..apa lagik?..makan jangan x makan la aku..hohoho..)

Humangai~ The food was something different, tasty. Fact of the matter, it was the company that made things taste a lot more delicious than they actually are. Excellent food and warm company. (hmm..yg sebenarnya aku ni dah besa sangat dgn family student aku yg ni..bab2 makan ni..dah jd rutin tiap2 kali aku pi ngaja..ada saja..pendek kata..kalau pas class aku x dijamu..x sah!!! kalau class pagi tu memang x makan tengah hari la aku! untung pewot aku..sep duit sungguh..hihiks;p) Alhamdulillah. Thank you Aunty, Nana and Mamat.

P/S: Aunty siap tapau kat aku lagik tau!..kari kepala ikan+tom yam+buboq pulut itam+dadih..nyum2..abes licin sume aku makan! hahaha..

: : What Will I Do? : :

The soundtrack from the Japanese drama "Long Vacation" sung by Natalie Burks from Cagnet.

I'm not really sure of the words to say

If only you knew that I feel this way
I wanna give my heart to you
Show me the way that you want me to

I know for sure there's a place for us
I'm counting the days till I feel your touch
You come to me when I dream at night
When I'm with you it will be so right

If you could see the love in my eyes
You should know that I'm on your side

Ohh ohh ohh
I'd be yours
You'd be mine
Ohh what will I do

: : The Sacred Month : :

"(It was) the month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’aan, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). So whoever of you sights (the crescent on the first night of) the month (of Ramadan i.e. is present at his home), he must observe Sawm (fasts) that month…"
~ [al-Baqarah 2:185]

The much-awaited blessed month of Ramadan is casting its shadow upon us. The time for contemplation and spirituality.

A warm and heartfelt Ramadan wish for my dear ones and everyone. May this special Ramadan of intense prayer bring you the utmost in peace and prosperity.

Don'ts for fasting.

: : My Love Story : :

It has nothing to do with my personal love story. It is a song - made in Bandung! And I just love this song! (lalalala..)

I have probably listened to this song million times and it holds me dearest to the genre. I enjoy its pacing and the vocal styling, of course. Ariel is just melancholy enough! (phewittt!!!)

Kisah Cintaku - Peterpan

Di malam yang sesunyi ini
Aku sendiri
Tiada yang menemani
Akhirnya kini ku sedari
Dia telah pergi
Tinggalkan diriku

Adakah semua kan terulang
Kisah cintaku yang seperti dulu

Hanya dirimu yang ku cinta dan ku kenang
Di dalam hatiku
Takkan pernah hilang

Bayangan dirimu untuk selamanya

Mengapa terjadi
Kepada dirimu

Aku tak percaya kau telah tiada
Haruskah ku pergi tinggalkan dunia

Agar aku dapat berjumpa denganmu

Enjoy my favourite!

: : Rindu Bisu : :

...tak nyenyak lenaku...
...teringatkan dirimu...
...apa salahku...
...dihukum waktu...
...dan kau terus membisu...

...tak lelah diriku...
...menantikan hadirmu...
...melabuhkan rindu...
...hati yang tak tentu pilu...
...air mata dalam sendu...
...gembira jiwa yang palsu...
...senyum tawa yang kaku...

...penantian penuh pengharapan...
...dapatkah lagi ku berdepan...
...harapan tinggal harapan...
...biar lama tetap ku nantikan...

...kau yang ku rindu...
...hanya dirimu...
...kau yang ku rindu...
...tetap ku tunggu...

...aku rindu...
...aku rindu...
...aku rindu kamu...

: : She sells sea-shells on the sea-shore by the sea-side : :

..was my very first time let's-try-to-tackle tricksy tongue twister taught by my thoughtful teacher, Miss Ooi Joo Lin - my primary English teacher. Thank you teacher!

Described as the hardest tongue twister in the English language, my tuition teacher, Mr. Taqi once had the class recite the tongue twister -
: : The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick : :
Taqi's tempting tongue twister truly tangled my tongue!

Enjoy a few other fave tongue twisters of mine!

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
If a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
And chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would
If a woodchuck could chuck wood.

How many cans can a canner can if a canner can can cans?
A canner can can as many cans as a canner can if a canner can can cans.

A big black bug bit a big black bear, made the big black bear bleed blood.

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Did Peter Piper pick a peck of pickled peppers?
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought some butter, but the butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought was bitter. So Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought some better butter to make the bitter butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought better. But instead of the better butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought making the bitter butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought better, the bitter butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought made the better butter Betty Botter (Bettyone) bought bitter!

Get the full effect of tongue twisters with repetition, as quickly as possible, without stumbling or mispronouncing. Practice makes perfect!

P/S: Just sharing an 18-SX rated tongue twister by Lizzy the Lezzy for those who like to twist your tongue!
