of resilience and the one inside :)

Have you ever felt oppressed? By work? By your own feelings? By people close to you? By circumstances? Oh well, I have. 

8 years in the media industry has opened my eyes and exposed me to so many different types of happenings/people/situation. 

Let's talk about people. The actors on this huge media stage. There are people who are genuinely nice to you, people who only need you when they need to get things done, people who step all over you, people who would do favours for you, people who are full of themselves, people who will cut your way, people who are "plain plastic", people who will be there for you when you need help, people who enjoy working with you, people who are kind without any ulterior motives and many many other sort of people. Funny ah this industry. Definitely not for the faint hearted. 

So, I've been doing some reflection this Ramadan to why some things are happening to me. It's God's way of conveying something. If it's meant to be, then it will be. No point feeling oppressed or down about something that He took away because He is fair. 

Basically, I've learnt to be RESILIENT, berdaya tahan.. cheyyyy.. =P




A resilient person does not focus the mind and physical energy on feeling less than others. Orang yang kuat semangat, akan cepat bangkit dari masalah dan terus berusaha ke arah sesuatu yang lebih bermanfaat dan berjaya. 

Jangan buang current dan mengumpat depan belakang cara makcik-makcik quarters la. Seriously. It won't do you any good. Move on, chin up. Bak pesan arwah Nenek saya, "Biar orang buat kita, jangan kita buat orang. Kerana Allah adalah pengadil dan penghukum.". Yup, my late grandma is very Mother Theresa like. She's so selfless and too kind. Always telling me to think good, do good, chill and leave it to God to handle. Now that i'm older, it makes much more sense. 



So true, right? :)

Greater things await. InShaaAllah. 

Anyway... after seeking permission from the husband.. We shall announce the gender of our baby.. I bet some of you are dying to know. Lol. 

Sudahkah anda bersedia, tuan-tuan dan puan-puan?

*JENG JENG JENG*

BOY! 

Heh. 


I have to admit I was a teeny weeny little bit upset when I found out cos naturally you would want a girl after a boy. BUT, the husband consoled me that it's alright. REALLY. Ni kan semua kerja Allah.. There's a reason why He gave us another boy. Maybe we're not ready yet to handle a daughter. As long as the baby inside me is growing healthily, that is all that matters. :)

Oh ya.. Haris being the positive boy that he is said this to me when we told him it's another boy.. 

Me: Haris, you'll be getting another brother...
Haris: Ahhh.. Are you ok with it, Mama? 
Me: Aiyah, I don't know la. Ok lah, I think.... 
Haris: Mama, be positive. At least now, I can be ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS
Me: *slaps forehead*



At that point, I don't know whether to laugh or to cry. SERIOUSLY. 

So yeah, I'm 28 weeks now with another son which means we are pulling off a Beckham. RIGHT. (minus the fact that I don't know if the next one will ever be a girl, EVER. heh) =P





Here's my little family and soon enough, we will add another hero to the empire. InShaaALLAH. 



Please pray for the health of myself and my baby ya. 

That's about it I suppose. Just my random thoughts, as usual. Heh. 

Selamat berpuasa semua! :)
