Month of Birthdays…

December is a special month for my family. At least six of us celebrate our birthdays and for two of us, our wedding anniversaries. The best part is that my daughter has the honour of kicking the month off on the 1st while her father ends it off today, the last day of the year, to go along with my wedding anniversary. We’ve had a few mini celebrations so I’m just gonna upload them for your viewing pleasure beginning with Syahindah Adawiyah‘s.

My two princesses…

Syahindah posing with her gift given to her by Uncle Ezaad & Aunty Julie. Thank you both for the lovely present. The couple celebrated their 4th wedding anniversary on 3rd December

My firstborn is now three years of age and will be attending nursery school next week…

Then we had a celebration for my nephew Eshaan at his home on 12th December. The theme of the party was Thomas & Friends. The food was simply awesome. A pity I had to check my calorie intake.

The two cousins born just 8 days apart…

My younger sister, Nurul, celebrated her 21st birthday (7th December) by holidaying in Dubai with my elder sister, Farah. Below is a somewhat embarrassing situation for the latter when we celebrated her 34th birthday (18th December) at F.I.S.H on 20th December 2009. The mastermind was of course the one seated to her left. But it was all in good-natured fun.

We did not get to celebrate my dad’s birthday on Christmas Day and the weekend that followed due to a wedding that he needed to help out and Hari Asyura. I dunno what’s in store for mine today, but I don’t care if we celebrate or not cos it’s just another day to remind me that I’m a step closer to my grave. Every living day is a blessing on its own as I love and cherish every family member, friend or colleague that I have. Material stuff are bonuses, if any. At least we have the fireworks at Marina Bay to look forward to and the “Bagaikan Sakti” concert on Friday at the Esplanade. I thank you Allah for 31 years of my life and I hope you would continue to grant me more good health, wealth and sustenance plus your blessings for the family, Insya Allah

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my wife for 4 wonderful years of marriage. We’re not perfect and we do quarrel from time to time but without patience and tolerance from one another, I don’t think this would ever work. I love you lots sweetheart and with each passing year, it grows even more…

2009 has been a relatively good year for me, even though I spent the last quarter living like a single parent, no thanks to wifey’s never-ending work commitments and of course my dear uncle’s heart condition which put a lot of things in perspective. I’m pleased to announce that as of yesterday, he is now discharged from the hospital and recovering at home. On behalf of Uncle Dollah‘s family, we thank you for all your endless support, words of encouragement and prayers rendered.

Still on the topic of football, the highlight of the year for me had to be meeting my favourite team in the flesh during their pre-season trip to Kuala Lumpur in July, staying at the same hotel as them and bumping into some of the players in the lifts and at the gym. Best of all, I’ve got to take a photograph with the grand daddy of them all, who shares the same birthday as me. Happy 68th Birthday to you Sir Alex Ferguson!!! May you continue to guide the team in good health and spirit. I will never forget my meeting with you and how nice you were even when your minders were not. By wishing me well and calling me “son”, that was definitely the highlight of my trip…

Well-known on RIA 89.7FM as a controversial and sensational critic able to invoke thought-provoking and sometimes, fiery responses from fellow listeners. Have since evolved into a distinguished blogger of reputable claim with takes on the Malay entertainment industry and football-related matters. Brutally honest and believes in only reporting the truth as I see, hear or experience it. Self-styled critic who does not mince his words and is definitely a non-conformist.
