Childhood & Other funny memories

Have u ever sat there and wished you were a little kid again? Well, pretty much not for me as I love and thank God to bless me with such a beautiful life with smiles and cries I have gone and am going through. The happiness and sadness I have and shall experience will reward me to a greater and mature thinking. The past has gone and now it is the moment to move forward with a little pleasure of looking backward.Whatever it is, here are some of my brief childhoods memories that made me smile close to the heart.

1. When I was a little tot
I was a graceful kid who loved to play “kitchen apparatus” and “babies feeding” toys. Why? Because my dad who is a well-known of his strictness did not allow me to play with sand or soil or any others that he thought might dirt me out!

2. When I was in the primary school
It was the time to play & play! My play timetable:
• Morning: “Tenteng” with Rhod.
• “Rehat”: “Police entry, 1 to jaga, police mati pencuri jaga” with classmates of “Kuning”Noon.
• (While waiting for transport to pick me up): “Main choup tiang” with Rhod & classmates.
• *plus: (in Std. 3 during “Kelas Agama”: “Main sembunyi2”. Will not be back to class until the “Ustazah” call us back).
Also remember, I missed to join the Std 6 trip to … (I can’t remember the place) because my mom who is well-known of her protectiveness did not allow me to go for any school trip.

3. When I was in the secondary school?
Still, it was the play & play time! I think I became more playful when I reached Form 4 even though I was a prefect by that year. What were the “playful” memories?
• F1/F2: Nothing much, except for “meniru” during examination. It was just “sometimes”
• F4: I was caught by “Cikgu Bertugas” to stay in the class, not joining the assembly in the hall. For a prefect to skip assembly was impossible, but that was what I did. The reason was because: The team inc. me was completing the task given by the late Mr. Sia on something related to Environmental Sketch Book competition. What an excuse! One more unforgettable memories: My “gang” & I joint “Pameran Rekacipta” which supposed to be an “invention” (konon), but we end up innovated a so called “mobile periscope” covered with a cartoon wrapping paper. Anyhow the funny part here was about Ned who vomited when she woke up. The reason was: “tahan…*tuuuut*”
• F5: Some of my classmates , my “gang”, & I were punished by “Cikgu Disiplin” for being late to class once “masa rehat” has over. Well, we thought there will be no teacher replaced on that day, so we didn’t care what’s going on in the class. However, since I was a prefect who was holding a “buku laporan pengawas” by that time, I was free from punishment. What a “bohong sunat”! Lots more funny memories lah!

4. When I was in the foundation program: Also kind of a “play & play time”

5. When I was in undergraduate school?
Also “play & play”. I remembered telling my friend about my boredom of being studied for exams that would be held few days after. Then we ended up spent a day & a night at Port Dickson, departed a minute just before the main gate closed (11.59pm) & arrived there searching for hotel at 2.00 am. Hajar was one of the members! One more: A trip to Genting Highland with not much cash in hand. My hubby, myself & 2 other friends (Hajar, you are 1 of them) were gladly travelled without thinking of how to pay the entrance charges + fuel. We ended up “tong-tong” for the RM30 fuel for my RX (just because the tank was empty by the time we reached the top) & entrance charges.

6. When I was in the graduate school? It was not anymore “play & play time”. Hardcore study! *But, never missed the “play” part. Remember most: My friend & I went for “sahur” at Mamak Restaurant, wearing pajamas. It was about to 5.25am, nearly “imsak”, but we kept eating the delicious mee goreng mamak until the waiter said, “Adik, ini masa sudah mau abis” (while pointing the clock on the wall). However, we just replied, “Errr… kitorang punya jam blum masuk waktu lagi”. Whatta!

7. When I was in marriage proposal
I have many male boys befriended with, but not to have relationship except with my hubby. No flirting, no “gedik”, no nothing at all, except for the whole sincere love towards him, my hubby.We set our vision & proceed our mission until today & future.Amin...

Patience is a power of suffering with fortitude. A pleasure is not enjoyable without pain, thus patience is needed in our interim life. To make life perfect, it is not humanity. Life is to accept the moment, neither the past nor the future. Then, with the current stand, think forward.

Yes, that is the brief statement of patience, which is commonly used to console a failed person. So that is the answer of “What should the person do?” Yes, everybody knows that. So what lacks now? It is the “How”! “How should the person goes through it?” Well, the answer lies on the person itself. Nobody is going to take care of it; she herself dealing with it, patching back the broken pieces into one special treat.

I am just a 27 years old lady, comes from a great happy family and sharing lives with a great lovely husband. However, the story I have listened to, the scene I have seen, and the most; the experience I have gone through, are the points I am collecting from, to develop the “patience” I need in my proceeding life.

It is not that easy to deal with this when it comes to your life. If you are facing such a pretty tough torment, you may need a powerful strength to keep you standing. How strong is your strength now? Well that cannot be measured I think, as it is due to the intolerable timing of when does the pain suspend you. Anyhow, whatever it is, you have to be ready. How it can be done? Some of them are:

• Let the sincere tears out as much as you can
• “Istighfar” as much as you can
• Talk to your spouse and/or family and/or friends about it
• Be a good listener of advices from others
• Pray as complete as you can
• Read Quran as far as you can
• Have fun with spouse, family and friends
• Write anything as long as you love to write
• Read more motivational articles
• Have a good rest whenever time limits you for that
• “Tawakkal” and believe God is the almighty

Finally, life is about accepting the present moment. Therefore, patience is the biggest lesson for a person. It is the key of enlightenment because if you do have pain and ensure you practice the patience, you will be rewarded beyond measure. Remember, the good things in life take time...
