I seldom talk about my family, especially my two princesses in my blog, unlike most bloggers I observe. Not that I’m not proud of them. I really do, especially when I see their antics, how they progress and how they grow in front of my eyes. Contrary to popular beliefs, I’m actually quite the private person and I would also like my children to stay away from the limelight as much as possible. The photo of them that greets you every time you enter this blog is my way of showing how much I love and adore them. To say that they are the symbols of my pride is an understatement. They’re more than that. Being the protective father, I guess I’m just doing my part to shield them from the outside world.
However, once in a blue moon, I would break away from my apparent “uptight rein” and accord them their rightful mention in this blog and today 1st April 2010 marks a special day for my second daughter Syadiyah Asyura. It might be April Fools Day to many, but to us, we have been honouring this day since 2008 as she celebrates her birthday, and today she turns two. Time sure flies in the blink of an eye. But I’ve never felt the two years have been a waste of time seeing her grow into the cheeky girl that she is and joker of the two apples of my eyes. Between the two, she is closer to me though it has to be said I love both with equal measure. Little wonder, cos she knows how to soften and pacify my heart when I’m angry with them.
Happy 2nd Birthday sweetheart… May Almighty Allah continue to bless you with good health, knowledge and intelligence, as well as being our source of humour and focal point of entertainment when we feel down or tired. May you grow up also to be a good, if not better, Muslimah and Solehah… Ayah, Ibu & Kakak will always love, cherish and treasure you with all our hearts…
