Bye, Ramadan

Hi everyone (do people even still come here ?? Haha) ! 
We're two days away from Raya and I'm having mixed emotions. Sad that the holy month is coming to an end, but happy I can start eating in broad daylight again haha. 
Earlier this month (Ramadan), I made a set of resolutions that I wanted to follow. Although I didn't manage to stay 100% steadfast, I did try my best and I'm proud of myself anyway. May Allah recognise all our efforts put into gaining closeness towards Him, amin. I took this Ramadan a lot more seriously than all of the other Ramadan's I've gone through, and it's my best Ramadan so far, but I wish I could have done more and I pray that all of us will live another year to witness the month of Ramadan again. 

This coming raya is gonna be a raya of firsts for me ; first time raya pakai tudung, first time raya with my step dad and his family (whom I have grown to love ever since my mum got married to him), first time raya having a car to drive (I can make it to more open houses now yay), first time raya having a camera to take loads and loads of pictures with. Sigh, I'm excited to see how this raya will turn out ! Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah for everything. 

Anyway, since this will be my last post before celebrating Raya, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir & Batin. From the bottom of my heart, I sincerely apologise for everything I may have said or done anything that you dislike / that may cause me to gain dosa, and for that, I beg for forgiveness from all of you. Please let go of any grudges you have against me, as I have of you. We wanna live happily ever after together in Jannah, right ?! 
Let's all forgive each other and pray for one another that none of us will have to look for the ones we have wronged to beg for forgiveness on the Day of Resurrection. 
I hope all of you will have a fantastic time celebrating Raya with your loved ones, insyaAllah. 

Here's a little photo spam of recent events. 
So happy because I got to see Irfan TWICE in the span of 4 days. That's a lot for us cause usually we see each other like.. once in three weeks ? 

On Saturday, I went out for buka with him at Monte's BSC, coffee at Dome and then met his friends at Podgy and The Banker. 
The Fat Baby Ice-cream they sell at Podgy's are the bomb.com. I had the salted caramel one and I was in love. IN LOVE. 





Irfan's mum invited me to join the family for buka puasa at KLGCC last night to celebrate Amilyn's (Irfan's younger sister) birthday and I had a really good time with them. 
I like how well I can get along with his siblings, like not a hint of awkwardness haha. Good sign, good sign. 

I also ate a lot last night. Food kept coming and at first it was just kurma and kuih, then mushroom soup.. then roast beef salad.. then pasta with bacon and salmon bits.. then pizza. I wasn't even done with my pizza when the chicken rolls and lamb racks came. To finish everything off, Crème Brulee and cake for dessert. The creme brulee was TO DIE FOR. So good I swear. I probably gained like 5 kilos from last night's buka alone ! Madness. Food was amazing though. No regrets pigging out hahah. Perfect start to my Raya hols. 


"Can, who do you love more, Kak Izza or Abang ?"
*points at me* hahahahaha









Such an awkward photo hahaha


I forgot to bring my camera hence the grainy photos. I swear, iPhone cameras magically degrade into 1.3 megapixels in low lighting -_- 
But yeah, I had a lovely time with Irfan's family, went back with a happy tummy and here I am the next day typing out this post. 

Hannah is also currently with me, loooove it when she's around. We're gonna terawih later toooo. Sister bonding time !!

  10. You post about islam, but at the same time you post pictures with your boyfriend hugging? Shamed on you

    ReplyDelete

    1. 1. Never said I was the perfect muslim
      2. I like blogging about Islam and I think it can benefit others. I'm learning too.
      3. I know my limits, and I know what I'm doing. We sin differently, and if this is your idea of wanting to tegur or 'give advice'. Shame on you to be honest.
      4. So what are you trying to say, if I wanna post about islam, I can't post pictures with my boyfriend ???
      5. If it bothers you so much, unfollow me. Stop reading my blog.

      Have a nice day ! <3

I think there's no escape from that T.T But you could try googling ways to prevent this from happening, I'm just not sure myself haha. Aw thank you, I miss blogging too !!
