Fasting for the First Time

Ramadhan Mubarak, everyone!

How was your first day of Ramadhan? Mine was excellent as it marked the day my first-born fasted for the first time. He woke up for sahoor, performed his five times solah for the day, and went to the masjid for Taraweeh.

Yes, he is a big kid now. How time flies.

The best part of the day was seeing him took that first sip of water during iftar. It is true what the Prophet (peace be upon him) says in his hadith:

“The fasting person has two occasions for joy…”

And today, I saw in my son's eyes the first occasion of joy the Prophet (peace be upon him) describes. Subhanallah.

Peperiksaan Pertengahan Tahun

Daanish is half-way through his Year 1 mid-year examination. So far, he's done with 9 papers and there are 4 more coming within the next 2 days. The examination covers 7 subjects and includes everything they've learned since the beginning of the year.

We've been going through all the materials for the exams with him and honestly, they're nothing like what you and I experienced in the early 90's. They are tough!

I know for certain that my son will sail through this rather tough week, but not without a little extra efforts from him and a little push from us.

"How were the tests, Abang?"
"Okay", he answered.
"Do you think you can get 100?"
"Yes!" replied confidently.

Well, I guess he'll do just fine, in shaa Allah.

Ayra Cycles

I complained in a post about how Ayra refused to cycle even after we entertained her request for a new bicycle.

Well, I am happy to report that today, Ayra finally cycles all by herself! It is definitely a day to remember and marks a significant milestone in her life.

Good job, princess! We are so proud of you.

Love, Ayra

When we came home from work today, Ayra presented a Mother's Day gift she handmade at school for my wife. She followed the exact instruction her teacher gave. She said:

You hug, kiss and give the flower. Happy Mother's Day!

It was the most adorable thing!

We Love Staycation!

Last weekend, for Mother's Day we decided to have a staycation at our favorite hotel in KL. It's a good thing my dad works for Starwood because paying for a two-night stay at Le Méridien wouldn't be such an easy decision to make if we're there "just for the fun of it".

Daanish had been begging for us to take him to see the marine animals because he's been reading so much about them lately. So, that Saturday morning, we took the train to Ampang Park, walked to le Petit Dotty's for a quick breakfast, and then straight to Aquaria KLCC. We were their first visitors for that day.

Aquaria has had a few improvements from the last time we visited. We were impressed and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Sharks, turtles, giant octopus, stingrays, eels, isopod, piranhas; It felt like we were in Daanish's books!

We then hurried back to the hotel [because we were afraid it was gonna rain] for some fun times at the pool. We ended up spending almost 3 whole hours there and only got out of the water when our tummies started growling. It is so convenient that Nu Sentral is just next door. And that's how we got hooked on 4Fingers chicken.

The next morning, before we checked-out, we took another dip (more like a splash, really) in the pool. It's slowly becoming a ritual every time we stay at a hotel. So is asking for a late check-out.
The Author

Irwan started blogging at the age of 21, when he was still in the States finishing his degree in Chemical Engineering. In 2006, he returned to his hometown to work in the oil and gas industry.

He married his college sweetheart in 2010 and they were blessed with two beautiful children. They now live in a suburb in their cosy little house.

Irwan is a self-taught blog designer. It fits his passion well as he is into both Art and Math. It also explains why he is a little introverted. He is an engineer by day and a full-time husband and father by night.

This blog is about how he spends his days with the people he loves. One day, when his children are old enough, he'd like to show it to them and reminisce.
