Gembira


Ada orang menangis, bila gembira. 
Ada orang ketawa, bila gembira. 

Tapi apa sebenarnya yang buat kita gembira?

Skor 4.0 dalam exam?
Mengolok kawan yang jatuh di tandas?
Tolong makcik angkat barang sambil melintas jalan?
Makan durian Musang King sampai sendawa?

Alang call last few weeks. 
Dia sedih tak dapat buat mak abah gembira. 

So, I asked her how you define gembira?
How mak abah define gembira?

For me,
Jika balik every month tu dapat buat mak abah gembira, saya akan balik. 
Jika minta transfer tu dapat buat mak abah gembira, saya akan minta. 
Jika kahwin tu dapat buat mak abah gembira, saya akan kahwin. 

Cuma, belum rezeki saya untuk balik duduk dengan mak abah. Belum sampai jodoh saya untuk kahwin. 

Its different when it comes to her situation. 
Dia ada dekat rumah every single day. Tolong mak basuh pinggan. Tolong abah angkat baju. 
Macamana desperatenya saya nak duduk rumah! Nak buat semua benda untuk gembirakan mak abah. Jealous! 
Cari makna gembira dalam kehidupan seharian kita. 
Setiap aspek kehidupan ada terselit kegembiraan. 

Jauh dari mak abah. Allah uji dengan macam-macam. 
Hari-hari saya balik kerja tak mampu nak tolong itu ini buat mak abah gembira. 
Mak abah tak ada depan mata saya. 
Hanya mampu call bila malam nak laporkan aktiviti harian dengan mereka. 
Hari-hari, cukup untuk saya buat kawan-kawan gembira. Cukup saya buat pak guard dekat apartment tersenyum. Cukup saya buat pesakit tersenyum. 
Itu makna gembira bagi hari-hari saya. 

Dan, 
bersyukurlah setiap masa bila Allah bagi kita peluang untuk buat mak abah kita gembira. 
Sementara mereka masih ada. Sementara kita masih bernyawa. 



Lots of 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....
Flight ticket One fine day, my housemate said she wants to go somewhere cold to cel…

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…
