happy anniversary, sayang


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
"Dengan menyebut nama Allah Yang Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Penyayang"

Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah.
This in an advance post for my one year anniversary in Sabah. Since I'll be in Pantai Timur this end of November, I decided to post this earlier.

saya sentiasa percaya dengan perancangan Allah. apa pun terjadi. apa pun berlaku pasti ada hikmah.
ada banyak 'kalau' jika kita nak persoalkan tapi siapa kita kan?
Allah yang Maha Besar. bukan kita bukan siapa-siapa.

terlalu banyak Sabah mengajar saya menghargai setiap saat Allah beri udara.
terlalu banyak Sabah mengajar saya erti sebenar kehidupan susah payah mencari makan.
terlalu banyak Sabah mengajar saya pahit manis kehidupan bila jauh daripada keluarga.
terlalu banyak Sabah mengajar saya siapa kawan siapa lawan.

perjalanan dalam kehidupan tak pernah berhenti selagi nyawa yang Allah beri pinjam masih ada.
sama seperti menuntut ilmu.bukan sampai negara China malah jauh lagi sekarang.

alhamdulillah.alhamdulillah.alhamdulillah.
12 months here and I learnt a lot. dunno whether I'll be able to get the same experience elsewhere.
sebab itu kena percaya setiap ketentuan Allah tu ada hikmahnya.
kalau tanya sekarang pun masih tak percaya.
its been a year and too many things happened.

someone text me and asked, "bila nak minta balik?"
tak semudah tu nak balik. emak abah tak panggil balik. nak kata calon suami pun tak ada lagi apatah pula perancangan nak kahwin. memang belum sampai masa Allah nak hantar balik ke semenanjung duduk bawah ketiak emak abah lagi. hantar duduk jauh. belajar berdikari. belajar uruskan kewangan sendiri. belajar uruskan masalah sendiri.

friends are getting married. friends gave birth.
congratulations everyone! trying my best to attend your wedding invitations tapi kadang-kala doa sahaja dapat dikirim. it is not that easy to go back selalu. so please jangan kecil hati kalau yang kawan yang duduk 1013 batu jauhnya ni tak dapat hadir majlis bersejarah kawan-kawan lain.

2014 coming and i'm excited for next year.
can see few important pending tasks waiting but never mind i've another big agenda next year, insyAllah.
received best friends' wedding invitations almost every month next year. february,march and april.

insyAllah semoga Allah mudahkan urusan tahun kedua di Sabah.
insyAllah semoga Allah murahkan rezeki tahun kedua di Sabah.


Happy Anniversary, sayang!



with love,
betty

Winter in Tokyo

Assalamualaikum. Hai there, it has been so long I did not write here. Probably will try to write more frequent this year. (konon azam tahun baru)
We just came back from Tokyo. Not really that baru. 10 days ago and we think that I should write about this trip. In case anyone out there need references on how we survived our trip for nine days.
But, let me tell you something. 1. I am going to write in bahasa rojak (if you feel annoyed reading it please do not read from the start). Well, I saw some netizens commented on FB post bout how someone tulis post pasal "OPAH" using bahasa rojak which I think it is just another desperate attention seekers tactic.
2. This is NOT "You can survive Tokyo under RM 1000" or "Visit Japan for budget only RM300". We do not restrict our budget at all. The cost is not really cheap but we tried our best to minimize the budget. 
So, here you go....

You go girl!

hai there!
it has been so long I did not post anything. I did wrote something but I did not post it. too many things happened. I'm getting older. not only me, you also right?
2016 gonna leave us in few months time. my boss favorite question is, "what  have you achieved this year, Izzati?" apparently, I'm still cracking my head for an answer at least to his question this year.
honestly, I never imagine that I'm gonna be here today. never imagine myself in Sabah for FOUR years. freaking FOUR years! I survived staying 1013 miles away from my parents. despite you know I flew back almost once a month. up to a point people are wondering if I got boyfriend back in Semenanjung. its more than a boyfriend. its my parents! its another long story. need to dedicate one whole post to summarize my 4 years in Sabah.
you know what,  things happen unexpectedly. once I had a very bad heartbroken. I put too much hope in someone. it took me so long till I can completely move on. Libra is very loy…

pesan abah

abah selalu pesan pada kami adik-beradik, dalam hidup ini kita tak akan dapat semua benda ada benda kita kena korbankan untuk dapat yang lain
betul abah. menginjak umur hampir 30 (oh, exaggerate saja), macam-macam ragam manusia boleh nampak. duduk jauh 1013 batu daripada keluarga, siapa sangka hampir 4 tahun dah dekat sini. tengok orang pergi jalan, terus jadi macam budak kecik mengadu dekat abah. dan abah as usual, trying hard to calm me down. "ada benda yang orang tu tak buat, tapi angah buat. sebab tu dia boleh pergi jalan tapi angah tak" too bad future husband. abah already put a higher level of my expectations to men in my heart.
dengan jujur, I spend most of my salary for flight tickets. kan dulu pernah saya coretkan, kalau balik setiap bulan boleh buat mak abah happy, saya akan buat.  bahkan kalau setiap minggu pun mungkin saya sanggup. syurga saya masih lagi di bawah tapak kaki mak. balancing life between work and family is important. I'm learning a lot of things here. to be ind…
