happy 1st anniversary!!!

Nov 22nd 09..Our 1st anniversary. Alhamdulillah. It feels like just a blink of eyes. How time goes by so quick till I did not notice that it has been a year I became a wife to beloved Helmi. Oouwh...how I still freshly remember the time when we began to get serious in our relationship. The fights, the sulks, the cries, the pressures, and most importantly the LOVE...Love that led to where we are today. A married young couple learning to appreciate the nature of life and trying to be grateful for what have been destined in our precious life.
There's nothing special on our anniversary. At first we planned to go to Niagara Falls, but due to financial constraint, we surrendered. It had hurt both of us because we're so excited at the very beginning to spend the weekend in romantic getaway. But I know as long as we're together everything will be exciting. So, we decided to watch 2 movies in a row. They were 2012 and Twilight New Moon. But again, luck was not on our side. New Moon was fully booked for 2 days in a row!!!! So, we only watched 2012 and then wondering what we're gonna do next to cherish our day. All of sudden, it came to my mind about having a candle light dinner since we never had one :) It was such a very 'economic' candle-light dinner and yet, the most meaningful dinner I ever had with my beloved hubby. We talked about our bitter sweet memories, the challenges we faced since we're married, and how we dealt with difficult circumstances that have colored most of the path that we gone through. And we pray to Allah that one day, He will make it easy for us and bestow upon us the eternity of love.

I will always remember what Helmi said that night. Not only that night, but the whole day and weekend we spent together. No picture taken as Helmi said it should be private and confidential and he's right. This special day should be kept properly in our heart and nothing will change it forever.

Just a message to Helmi (if u ever read this): Happy 1st Anniversary..May Allah bless our marriage with happiness and with good children..I just want you to know that I'm always happy no matter what happen as long as u're here by my side..and I'm sorry for my weaknesses..You have taught me life..unmaterialistic life with love and courage and blessed from Allah..And I hope you feel the same way too..And I always pray the best for both of us..Amin..

autumn in my heart

hI ALL.. it's been quite long I left my blog with some old stuff..So, since today is sunday, I decided to share a lil bit about my first autumn in Canada..It is amazing with a very beautiful scenery..Subhanallah..Actually, my husband and I don't really have time to go for holiday or 'jalan-jalan makan angin' during this fall season even though I would love to, since my schedule is so packed this term with classes and preparation for my comprehensive exam next term..InsyaAllah..Although we do not have a chance to tour Canada as yet, I insisted to go and get some pictures here in Kitchener-Waterloo again :( to share with our beloved family and friends.
