Happy Mother's Day

Mai, thank you so so much for the order. Appreciate the gesture more than you will ever know.

Every year when mother's day makes its presence, I seldom let myself go and enjoy the day. But most of the time, I worry if I have been the best I could be to my kids. The more I think, the more horrible I feel. Sometimes I feel they deserve better.

I wrote this poem a long time ago in 2007. Just thought it is apt for me to share again with you today.

What makes a good mother? I am often bothered by this question.
Especially after feeling guilty of punishing my children.
Does a good mother only listen and never whack?
Does she reserve herself to only watch and never smack?
Does she only whisper and never shout?
Does she only believe and never doubt?

A good mother is all that is good and bad.
She is in for the happy times and also the sad,
She may be stern at the same time understanding.
She can be strict and yet compromising.
She is serious and silly all together.
She is full of tears and overflowing with laughter.

Am I a good mother? That is a question I will always ask.
Especially when I am bothered,
If I have carried well this god given task.


Happy Mother's Day especially to Hajjah Fatimah Azizah and to all mothers out there.

Hi whiz...

I don't know who you are, except for the fact that you make and sell delicious, to-drool-over treats, as well as being a mum, sister and wife (based on your entries).

I don't even know why I come here to visit. But when I think about it, I guess it's the way you write about things... such heartfelt pieces that makes me wonder what kind of person you really are in the offline world.

In other words, I like to to read what you write. (And I also like to drool over your yummy pics). Keep going, akak :)
