Sweet moments

Yesterday I hit the maximum limit of how much my body can take stress and load until I drop dead on bed, having cold, lost voice. The night before, after having dinner at my beloved friend’s home, her mother gave me a good light massage of my back after hearing me slightly complaining how exhausted I felt. She asked me if I had fever. I said not that I noticed. She felt my body was very warm but I said I didn’t feel it. She was right. When I reached home, I started to experiencing cold symptom. Yes, now I knew that I actually catching cold. Alhamdulillah I manage to curb it and feeling better today.

The load and stress was not so much on my office work. It was actually the moving, cleaning the old house and making sure every single things is not missing based on the list recorded by house agent. Finally, I felt the stress off my shoulder after hand over the key and went through the list with rep from the agent yesterday morning. Thanks for friends who had lend their hand to clean the house and moving some of my belonging to new flat.

Staying in that house for more than 2 years left a lot of memories. Most are sweet memories…. the time when my son and his friend were playing in the rear garden during hot summer and sometimes when we had gathering for raya or makan-makan. I can still recall there is corner for children and also for adult to have their activities.



The rear garden with little apple tree and my tomato planted in several growing bags. Also tomato in dining room. Although I can easily count the number of tomato, it was enough to give me satisfaction to see it growing… not so much to enjoy the fruit of it.

I thank Him for blessing me with this opportunity to experience sweet moments in my life, being able to share my joy with families and friends through this years...

Poor Sweet Red Orchid,

If there's by any chance an indian (mamak style) chicken soup is handy where you are, take it. It'll do good for the cold and fever because of the spices in it.

Take care sweet red orchid.

Maklang, I had been in touch with my lil one every day. If I didn't call then the big man will call me. Insyallah I will recover from cold soon. This time is a very fast recovery. Back hugs to you too..

Demonsinme, Pakistan shop here don't normally have kind of soup & I am staying at ourskirt of town, so no choice. But no worry, I will be fine. Friend live nearly brought food for me at time when I could not even stand on my feet with cold.
