30 Minit Ustaz Don Menelusuri Hidup di Birmingham dan Glasgow

Salam semua,

Last night TV Al Hijrah broadcasted this Program namely "30 Minit Ustaz Don Menelusuri Hidup di Birmingham dan Glasgow "

Yes. He came to Glasgow last month and alhamdulillah we listened to his talk about Akhlak Rasulullah. Our families in Malaysia were so excited to watch in case they see us. Mr Amien was in this show acted as a 'Tuan Rumah' welcoming  Ustaz Don and crew in Glasgow. I didn't see the show actually however I bet he is handsome as always .=)

Ustaz Don & co were in Glasgow for 3 nights and Hawa offered her house for Ustaz Don & family (his son, Don Mustaffa is soooo adorable!) to stay (Hawa's house just opposite my house) while Hawa and family stayed temporarily in our house. In these three days we were were giving an opportunity to host our special guests especially we always gather during dinner time in our house.

As 3 days observation, in my personal opinion, what I can say about Ustaz Don is he is very friendly, always smile and sopan santun. Even though he has very strict and full time table he always try to fulfill others wishes. Everyday somebody will come purposely to visit Ustaz Don in person and he always treat them nicely. During dinner time he will always let everyone eat and when everyone went home, then he will start eating. That what I remembered about him within 3 days.

Thank you Allah for giving us opportunity to meet this young talented ustaz. May Allah SWT always bless and protect him and his family.








and my eldest sister managed to captured photo list of our names as sekalung budi from TV al Hijrah.. =) TQ TV Al Hijrah



Till then,

XOXO

Throwback : Spring Day Out ---> Head of Ayr Farm

Salam all,

Spring is my personal favourite month. Maryam was born in this season. You will know spring is finally here when daffodil started to bloom, then followed by cherry blossoms. Personally I love spring because it reminiscing  the first day I went home after gave birth to Maryam.

Blooming cherry blossoms

So this year Mr Amien organized one day trip to Head of Ayr Farm. About 7 families joined and we received discount on tickets that we purchased. Save money (^_^). Head of Ayr Farm is combination of mini zoo and huge play ground. Quite plenty of animals including camel! We spent one day there enjoying bright sunny day. Overall we were so happy! (^_^)

Throwback : Maryam started to go to pre-school nursery

Salam semua,

For today, I will update about Maryam's nursery. We started sending her to the nursery last year in August. She got a placement at Haghill Nursery Class for a part time afternoon session (1pm-4pm). Normally Mr Amien and I will take turn to send and fetch her to/ from school. Maryam also loves to cycle to school if the weather is bright and sunny. Overall I can say she is really enjoying her school time. She alway draws/paints a picture and bring back to me. According her teacher (during Parent-Teacher meeting), Maryam loves playdoh, jigsaw puzzles and lego. Perhaps she has a talent to be a successful skyscraper engineer in the future like her babah. InshaAllah (^_^). However she is a bit shy especially in a large group. Her teacher told us that she would like to help Maryam to develop her confidence for the next six month progress.

Another update is now she speaks Scottish with me. Sometimes I barely understand what she said and will ask her to explain. hehe. kind of funny. I speak Malay to her so that she will be familiar with Malay words while Mr Amien speaks English. Everyday, I will try not to miss asking her what she did at school so that she knows that I care. I also always ask who is her friend that she played with just to ensure that she is not lonely/antisocial. Being a parent is o challenging I can say. Luckily I have Mr Amien who is really fatherly to Maryam. One of my sources to be a better parent is Mr Amien. He always teach me about children psychology that I always forget. Here some photos of Maryam in her nursery. (^_^)









Till then,
XOXO

Throwback : Maryam's 4th birthday celebration

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim..
Salam to all,

After more than 2 years being idle, today I will try to write my blog again. (^_^)
Update bout myself? hopefully by this year I can finish my PhD. InshaAllah. Going back for good after that? I guess not as Mr Amien is currently doing his PhD in Glasgow Caledonian University. More stories to share with you..however I will begin with Maryam's 4th birthday celebration. Oh dear.. Maryam is 4 years already. Can't believe how time flies so fast..

To save budget, everything is DIY. From cooking, baking (not really.hihi..Wini made this yummy chocolate cake for Maryam's birthday), decorating etc. Been very hectic and busy, luckily I had assistants like Wini, Hawa and also our masterchef imported all the way from Sunderland, CT,  to come and help me.

Overall, the event was successful despite Mr Amien was sick that time. Both of us were knocked out early as 9pm while Ct, Hawa and Wini still had to entertain other guests. hihi. TQ3x..

And the most happiest person is Maryam! She was very happy playing with her friends. Telling everyone that she is four now. She is absolutely my little anak dara now :) Here some photos I want to share.













Till then..


XOXO
