Will we ever be ready????




My girl is not a little girl anymore ..

I guess not!!!


My eldest girl Is going to start work less than a month's time. It's her time to join the "real world" out there .. Joining the adult world.


I still remember her first day of kindy when I was worried leaving her in the care of total strangers ..


I still remember her first day of school when I was kicked with reality that my little girl is not so little anymore ..


I still remember her first day of secondary when for a FLEETING second I felt old ..


I still remember her first day of University, when she finally has to leave home and stay with friends and fend for herself and few extra seconds of feeling old ..


I still remember her "Ibu, I am 21 years old already, I can do it" when I worry incessantly about her driving around and doing stuff ..


And now she is legitimately an adult, will start to work and earn her keeps and be responsible for a lot more things .. And I confess, for a FULL MINUTE I felt old ..


These are the phases that we have to go thru and it comes whether or not you like it and I guess we will never be ready to let them go at any stage of their life, but let go we will and accompany them with nothing but the best wishes in the world that they find what they are looking for and that they will face the challenges that will be upon them and hoping that they will know, no matter what we will be there for them ..


So dearest kakak, congratulations on your appointment .. I am so proud of you, and always remember you always have me to turn to for anything and everything that you need or will ever need ..


I know you will go out there and do your best and here is to a wonderful new beginning .. Just know that there will be bumps along the way, challenges, and lots of other stuff, but I am confident that you will be able to weather it through !!


Just be you. And remember, you are a wonderful person with a wonderful big heart, and a beautiful one too .. dont let anyone tell you different !


Love you till my last breath ..

Since I cant run ...... horsey is in the cards

I have not ran in a looooong time but my passion for it is still there .. I still look in envy at people running on the road and wishing I was with them.

I have to postpone my knee ops to a later date since I cant find a suitable time to be immobilised for 2 weeks straight .. might have to wait till Azam has another long break from school. Puasa was the best month to do it, but with Thibault around, I decided to not do it.

Now that I am left with only swimming and occasional brisk walk, I decided to check out the horse place nearby my house here in Johor. Read about it in the papers sometime back and since its TB's last few days with us, decided to bring him for a ride and also to check out the place.

It was a nice place, located deep in Kg Plentong Baru .. big ranch and 13 healthy horses! They take in students from as early as 8 years old!

Its my first time ever on a grown horse, the first time was daunting because its so high up lol but after awhile with coaching I got comfortable. First lesson is just to get a feel of the horse, to get your rhythm on the horse and to learn how to "navigate" the horse ..It was a fun an hour for all of us. 

Attached some pictures for you to enjoy .. and you can bet I am going to sign up for classes :)
