The One when I Turned 30.

I've turned T-H-I-R-T-Y and Alhamdulillah, it feels good. I don't feel "old" a bit. Same as I was 16, 18, 21, 25, 28..... yurp, same. Still got the Disney in me. Hehe.

But true! As you get older, it gets quieter. Perhaps, its Ramadhan. Loved ones are occupied with ibadah and chores. Once again, Mum & Ayah has forgotten. As Ayah put it: "16 or 21-years-old, itu baru birthday. After that, jangan sibuk".

Whatever Ayah. I half-agree with you. 30 IS a "Happy Birthday" birthday and I still want that present I asked for. (",)Speaking about birthday present, Tamhid got me a Sony Ericsson G900 from Starhub! Ka-ching*ching Hehehe. Which reminds me, I want to tease him and tell him that I'll take that as my pre-birthday gift.There's still post-birthday. On actual day, early morning, the gift I received was unforgettable and priceless. That physical touch I had.... Most-deserving. It will forever be edged in my memory. Thanks for the Group Hug, Loved Ones.Durrah was squashed in the middle.

What I did on September 18, 2008:

- Rushed to Pergam to get Mum's medicine prescriptions, then rushed to SGH's pharmacy to get what she needed. Mum was slurring again. Signs of Stroke. Rushed back to Pergam as one of the items was her set of jabs, ice-packed. Mummy was being stubborn, insisting that she was fine. She, assuring me, to go ahead with my plans today, as rest is all she needed. With a heavy heart, I went.

- Go Johor and explored Kampung Pandan Bazaar. Too hot and tired to enjoy, but managed to get kain samping and butang-baju-abang-mana-Pah? Couldn't find the right Orange BK for Tamhid. We headed to Tebrau City Jusco to solat and window-shop and ding-ding-ding, we saw the PERFECT Orange BK. $RM100+... cant bargain. Departmental Store oiii.

-Iftar at Black Canyon.

-Headed for Angsana to shop more. Tamhid got himself the latest capal design.(The way he shops, as if its his birthday. *eyes-rolling*)

Sweetness on my 30th Birthday:

- Zilah and Baoling got me Dunkin Donuts!! More sweetness was when, Zilah wanted to send them over even when I was at the other end of Singapore. We picked up at her place instead.

- The Amethysts & Sapphires choired a birthday song conducted by Dila, over the phone.

- The SMSes and well-wishes over at Facebook.

- The birthday cards made by sweet Rushda and cousin Nadhrah.(I want something from Edleen!! A card or her fabulous scrapbooking LO. Hmm, I hope she reads this.)

As planned, goodie bags giveaway this Raya for loved ones at work and close to heart. Looking forward to a great year ahead. Insya Allah. Amin.
