lately, there’s one important news i need to read first thing in the morning. and one blog that i need to check daily.
when tun dr. mahathir was hospitalised for his scheduled second bypass surgery (the first one was in 1989), i started keeping abreast of his latest condition. one place to get the updated news is the yahoo mail beta. there’s a local news section in the email homepage and you could always find updated news about tun’s conditions.
another place to get the most updated, first-hand news is of course marina mahathir’s blog, rantingsbymm. i found her blog by accident, through another blog and i have been reading her blog since, to the extent of bookmarking it. i’d check the yahoo news first and then i’d read her blog. even the newspapers quoted her blog entries.
i respect tun and i guess, growing up during his leadership, i cant help but look up to him as a father figure (well, maybe a grandpa figure is more appropriate as he’s the same age as both my grandmas 😉 ).
i cant forget one evening my sis and i met him at the lake nearby our house (he has a bungalow here in cybertown. yes, the biggest one in the area. yes, the one that u can see on the way here from putrajaya. yes, yes, the one besides the school). we were taking a walk when 3 people riding bikes very leisurely passed us. it was tun and his bodyguards (it’s a wild guess but i think they were his bodyguards). and he smiled at us! tun. smiled. at. us!. i was shocked. i couldnt speak at all but i smiled my prettiest smile back. (i’ve passed by many celebrities before but the feeling was different. i didnt feel anything at all. well maybe because they didnt care enough for a smile.) i guess that’s why he’s a great leader. he warms up to anybody. oh, and he wore a red polo shirt.
it was the sweetest moment in my life. (beats my first date with my guy, but dont tell him that ;)).
get well soon tun.

i have found a comprehensive schedule for buka puasa (break fast/iftar) and imsak times at the ever reliable JAKIM website. Click here to see the schedule. It’s a detailed schedule for all the states in Malaysia. just click on the link (for eg, if you live in Melaka then click the Melaka link) and the link will open a timetable of buka puasa and imsak time in a pdf file. if you are looking for kuala lumpur, just scroll down to number 10 under Wilayah Persekutuan and click the Putrajaya link (JAKIM should put a separate link for Kuala Lumpur, for easier search). The buka puasa and imsak times for kl is here: http://www.islam.gov.my/portal/pdf/puasa/putra.pdf
i have also found the timetable for London and Orange & Los Angeles Counties. 😀
*added 13 Sep: for those who lives in
cybertown cyberjaya, you can follow the putrajaya/kuala lumpur schedule.

two more days to fasting month. i can hardly wait.
this year is the first time we will be fasting in our new home in the cybertown, and doing the rounds at the mosque for terawih.
may this year we’ll have a better ramadan.
so we finally made up. (no kissing, mind you ;p )
he text me this morning, “would you still want to marry me?”
so i text back, “would you?”
“of course,” he replied. “but you have to be patient.”
“are you sure you are willing to put up with me?”i asked, just to make sure that he has thoroughly thought about this.
“i’ve been putting up with you for 8 years. doesnt it count for something?”
i sensed a bit irritation so i cut it off.
then i told him about yesterday, in case he forgot. i told him that if i wouldn’t still want to marry him, i wouldn’t take the long journey to kl yesterday, to apologise personally, only to be told to go home. I reached his home at 4, and I was home at cybertown at 5. just imagine being rejected flatly. but i took it. because i knew i deserved it. he deserved to get angry with me. so if it didnt count for something, then it was nothing.
imagine, being turned down by your guy flatly. love is really is hard.
“so are we good?”
“yeah, we are good.”
we fought. about getting married.
i was the one who started it (as always). i finally told him, about this. i know deep down, it was a mistake, telling him, asking him to discuss about it. but i thought, we would never settle the thing if we never get around to discuss about it.
but instead, we fought.
maybe i wasnt patient enough. he told me that i could end our relationship if i want to. maybe he was fed up with me.
but maybe it was really my fault.
i thought, God, marrying is a good thing. but why it’s so hard for us?
i dont know.
i dont know how we would handle this tomorrow. would we kiss and make up?
or…would it be the end?
i dont know if we are going to save our relationship. i want to. i really love him.
but i dont know about him.
