Kota Bharu: Missing you

I'm wishing anyone, Muslim, who drops by here to read my ramblings, a blessed and memorable Eid-ul-Fitr.    Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri untuk semua. :)

I can still remember that wonderful feeling, waking up at dawn, looking out the window, seeing a different city....a strange, wonderful feeling... for reasons unknown to me, I feel at ease, I feel serene... macamlah dah selalu sangat duduk Kota Bharu yang sangat jauh daripada Johor Bahru tu.  Then I will watch tv... then do my subuh prayers then sambung tengok tv semula. Ada juga terbangun in the middle of the night.. pun rasa best, tenteram could be because it is an Islamic city...soothing and peaceful aje bila kat sana, Alhamdulillah.

Then selera makan pun sentiasa okay je.. since the menus were quite different than the ones we southerners selalu makan..tu yang bertambah best tu.  Our last nite there, we had dinner at Glaila restaurant, right in the middle of KB.  Yang paling I ingat dan suka ialah Kari Ayam Hijau.. so far belum pernah jumpa lauk tu di JB ni.  Super-delicious!  

There are many, many things I love about Kota Bahru.

Kota Bahru, I miss you....

Kota Bharu : I'm in love

Guess it's a bit late but never too late to wish everyone Salam Ramadhan and may you have a blessed time in this holy month.  And welcoming the month of Syawal with arms wide open although beginning to feel sad that Ramadhan is coming to an end....there's nothing like the magic of this holy month.

Kota Bharu.  Verdict? I'm in love. With the city. The food. Oh, not the heat, though.  Yang geram tu ore Kelate semua putih melepak despite the blinding heat... mana aci cam gini...

But yes, I'm in love with Kota Bharu.  Nanti-nanti kalau ada masa, will write a lil bit more on the beloved city of mine.. yes, I think I luv Kota Bharu right after Johor Bahru.  The city has a personality and a touch of its own.

Proud to say here that I am now familiar with the main roads of the city of KB.  Jalan Sultanah Zainab, Jalan Kebun Sultan, Jalan Telipot, Jalan Hamzah, Jalan Gajah Mati, Jalan Kuala Krai, Jalan Hospital, Jalan Pengkalan Chepa, Jalan Sultan Ibrahim... and lots more.  Stayed at the luvly Grand Riverview Hotel, with a view of the river.

Later, uccay.  Once again, I LOVE KOTA BHARU. :)

Kota Bharu: Looking forward...

Dalam bulan May ni saya akan ke Kota Bharu, untuk attend majlis perkahwinan cousin saya di sana.  Tak sabar rasanya nak ke sana, walaupun perjalanan agak jauh.  Cuba-cuba juga survey Firefly, tapi tak ada yang bertepatan dengan date wedding tu.  SIL saya pun nak ke sana dan bawa my nieces... maka sebab itulah dia lagilah perlukan flight, tak convenient travel dengan kids sejauh itu.  Kenapa Firefly? Sebab, Firefly alone has direct flights JB-KB....  senang kan direct flight.. saya memang cukup pantang transit-transit ni.  Sebab? My blood is made of mercury... memang jenis tak sabar.  No matter what, cukup excited nak ke Kota Bharu.  Dah lama sangat tak ke sana.  Antara tempat yang saya nak jengah ialah Pasar Besar Siti Khadijah.  Suka betul merayau-rayau, tengok apa yang patut... surely different from Pasar Larkin.  Uccay, nanti saya update lagi :)

Baucar Buku 1 Malaysia

My highest and endless appreciation to the Government of Malaysia and to our Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak on the allocation and gift of the RM200 Baucar Buku 1 Malaysia to the students of the higher learning institution like myself.

I spent RM 100 last night on items related to my studies, of course.  Have another RM 100 to spend. :)

Praise be to Allah.  May Allah bless us all.

On that 11-11-11....

Yet another blessing, another heartwarming gift for me, for all of us indeed ....

Meet Afrin Farhana Mohd. Firdaus, born of the proud parents Firdaus & Ayati.  Entered this world precisely at 5:26 a.m, November 11, 2011.

And guess, who is the happiest? None other than Afrin's Big Sis, the much loved Anis Farissa....Allah bless you both, Darlings... Kakak, I'm truly happy to see your face, when your long awaited sis is now by your side :)

And that makes three Jedi Younglings now.... Anis (Firdaus), Iman (Fahmy) and Afrin (Firdaus).
