PadaMu Kubersujud

The surau I once related the plight of is now operational for the daily and Terawih prayers, thanks to all the beautiful Samaritans like you. Everytime we make our presence there I would have you in my thoughts and in my prayers, to thank The Almighty for allowing me the opportunity to get to know the kind souls who have contributed to the building of the Surau. Thank you so much for helping us make space for these foreheads to rest, for these knees to kneel, for these palms to place in the direction of the Kiblat.

Ramadhan thus far has been quiet. The first week was smooth sailing, the kids were strong and we thronged the surau hand in hand together. There were times when they skipped their short distance there with tummy so full you could actually hear the sound of the unsettled glasses of water downed during iftar. The second week however, both of them had viral fever which lasted for about a week in high temperature. The third week I was down with it too. But alhamdulillah all of us have recently recovered and hope to finish the remaining of Ramadhan in strength and good spirit.

Orders of cakes alhamdulillah came in steady rows. Many participated in the charity drive and that kept us on the road to look for Rumah2 kebajikan which needed the extra cheer. Amongst the chosen houses were Rumah anak2 Yatim Darul Izzah in Bangi, Rumah Anak2 Yatim, dan ibu tunggal Nur Hikmah Kajang, Rumah anak yatim Subang Jaya, Taman Seri Harapan(OKU) Cheras and Rumah Seri Puteri Cheras. Thank you so much Afiza, Aishah, Anis, Dr. Mariam, Mai and Murni for participating. It was a pleasure to deliver the little cakes on your behalf.

The hampers below were ordered by friends. I am not so much known for my packing skill let alone decorating and arranging flower skills but I hope these were acceptable in design and effort. Thank you Mai for the endless support and Pak Arip for the trust.

I have cookies and some cakes now to make for close friends and relatives before Ramadhan draws to a close. My apologies for not updating as much and for not uploading the pictures of your cakes here. InsyaAllah will try to feature them in their best shots soon.

Till then, have a pleasant weekend with your family folks. We will be very busy doing some cleaning, wiping and washing these two days to usher the new month of Syawal.

Woohooo! Banyak nya kipas nak lap and tingkap nak cuci.
