WEEKENDS ARE ALWAYS OFF

Assalamualaikum,

READING
I tried to bring home the works for my research, but I failed to finish and complete the work before the following week. Since I can't be in front of MY DELL all the time during the weekends, I read a book sent to me by Prof Muhd Kamil Ibrahim, which I received happily last Friday. His signature was on the 1st and the 2nd page. But in the 1st page he had written: Ini buku terakhir dalam simpanan saya. Moga dirahmati Allah sentiasa. Signed, 22/12/10.

It's an honor to receive his book and what he had written made me so excited and very happy... I tried to look for the book at Popular Bookstore and bukuonline.blogspot.com, but they said there are no more copies... (Just...Maybe because I bought 3 of his Travelog Haji book and 1 Travelog Dakwah book and gave them as gifts to my friends... But I didn't mention that to him of course.. hehe.. :) )

I am so glad that I really searched for his book... SubhanalLah, almost every page I marked by folding the right or left corners of the pages. His words are words of wisdom man. The experiences that he shared, Alhamdulillah, made me think and felt so much relieved... :)
(Allah answered my prayer through his book, I believed... Alhamdulillah! Syukur Ya Allah!)

In the 1st chapter, he said that he was inspired by what Tun Mahathir said: "Perkara yang sukar jika dilakukan secara berulang-ulang, berhati-hati atau dengan disiplin yang tinggi, maka setiap orang boleh mencapai kejayaan."
I will share some other contents later insyaAllah...

THE WEEKENDS ARE FOR THE KIDS
Playing, reading, praying, eating, bathing, clean Huzaifah after he poo-poo... Here are just some of the activities. They are growing up so fast!

Habib
Habib is a very adorable son... Very cute boy!!! Chubby!!!
He's talking a lot nowadays.. and always heard him reading and sounding the end of a word.
Every night before they sleep, he's forced to read the doa tidor, doa makan and to recite the Al-Fatihah.. Alhamdulillah, the sound of the words are there eventhough the whole word was not mentioned. hehe

Huzaifah
Huzaifah, reading Iqra' till huruf Da now.. Can recite doa makan, doa tidor, Al-fatihah, Al ikhlas, doa naik kereta, doa keluar tandas...
He's very tall...
He had fever and cough last week, so we brought him to the clinic to take antibiotics. Mujur ubat sedap, senang nak makan! :)
Very playful.. This morning let him play Bob the Builder online and starfall.com.
I just watched him solving the Match A Pair! He can remember where the "1st W" is to match with its pair. (I couldn't entertain him because we were busy closing up our Belanjawan Keluarga 2010... How much we spend every month?!! Astaghfirullahal 'Azim. InsyaAllah... InsyaAllah... 2011 kena azam rendahkan belanja sebulan, boleh ke ek??!! Boleh BOLEh! Malaysia Boleh! ;))

Oklah... Huzaifah suruh buat air teh.. the weekends are for them and families.. so I have to work hard during the weekdays eh?? InsyaAllah!!!
