We had the same photo taken last year on the same day, at the same spot, with the same giddiness. Only I was mightily trying to battle some nasty morning sickness, averse to the smell of rendang, with a baby kicking in my tummy. This time, there’s rendang in my tummy, with a baby kicking on my lap.

Salaam Aidilfitri, maaf zahir dan batin, from the three of us. :-)

 My Tumblr site is 4 today! I remember being in the earlier days of dating my then-fiancee-now-husband that involved a lot of poetry writing day and night when I first signed up for Tumblr. 

Today, we are a family of three. :-) β€οΈπŸ’•

 I am finding it hard to “snap happy” now with all the tragedy, sadness, loss of lives, cruelty and political agenda going on with the world now. I am so angry and sad all at the same time.


May there be peace. May there be humanity. May there be kindness. May He guide us.

 I have always been a perfectionist. I used to carry around with me a hope of one really perfect moment that will come after a long day. A really perfect moment; almost as if I was planning it, the way perfectionists do.

I have not stopped hoping. But I do not count solely on it now. I learn (or at most, trying to) now that the really short bursts of smile-worthy moments I wasn’t prepared for in between a hectic day - no matter how little, no matter how short, and indefinitely unplanned - are worth celebrating. Maybe these little unplanned moments are, without me realizing it, what I was hoping for. Imperfect, but perfectly reminding me to live in the moment and celebrate the present.
