Serious businesses coming 2012

I've gone through trials and hardships in 2011. Be it at home with the family or at the office with colleagues, I've been tested one too many times. Alhamdulillah, I've chewed heartily most of the big chunks and now is the time I can sit back, sip my favourite guava flavoured tea and relax. Don't get me wrong. My study is far from end yet. But I've done my part, now I am waiting for feedback from my supervisors. In the mean time, I get to spend some precious moments with the little ones: baby porcupine and the new baby koala. They are the joy of my life, the reason why I continue struggling even when I stumble down and bleed.

Come new year, I see brighter prospects waiting for me. Here are the things I want to see realised this year, InsyaAllah...

1 - To initiate some effort on losing weight and look fabulous again. I've ignored myself these past four years on other more important things in life, now I'd like to have some time for me and me only;

2 - To attend this year's convocation, climb up the stage and receive my scroll. MasyaAllah! After all these years, receiving the scroll with my name on it would be the sweetest moment to cherish;

3 - To concentrate on the paper works and other necesssary documents to establish a business I've put on hold for too long. I hope this is going to be a good year to start the business, InsyaAllah.

4 - To go travelling and see the world as much as I can. As a mattter of fact, my husband has made an arrangement for a family vacation during the first term school holiday. This will be the starting point for more adventurous travels in the future, insyaAllah.

5 - To take care and cater for the needs of my mother, for as long as she lives. I love her so much. Unfortunately I have neglected her for so long. I pray I'll be given a chance to be with her and make her happy.

Allah knows what is best for me. Alhamdulillah, life has been good. InsyaAllah, life will be better this year. Same goes to all my moslem brothers and sisters out there. May we all be successful, in this world and the world hereafter. Ameen.


  1. May Allah make your dreams come true and bless you with everything that is good for you - both in this dunya and in the hereafter.

  2. May Allah aid u to make all your commitments especially looking and catering for your mother which was my favourite. So glad I came across your blog again. I used to have a blog called 'oldskool muslim mama', do u remember? We kept in frequent contact. Your baby must be one or more now. Stay blessed sister!

  3. Ameen to all your wishes sis..
    I love the way you've quoted some of them! :)

  4. Assalamualaikum, sisters...

    @nadia: thank you for your dua, sis. The same goes to you. Ameen.

    @Sanaa Nubiansis: Masya-Allah, sis! Where have you been all this while? I have been searching for you high and low but couldn't find you anywhere. But all praises to Allah, for he answers my duas. You come back and I am soooo happy! Honestly, I was quite worried about you because your last post that I read was on you having trouble to sleep. I hope it has stopped troubling you, sis. My baby is only 9 months old and I am always eager to see him grow up. Please keep in touch, sis. You are always in my duas.

    @nasmira: Thank you, sis. These wishes need a lot of attention and of course hard works, so duas from everyone would definitely make them easier to achieve, insyaAllah. BTW, I love your blog! Take care, sis ;)

  5. Dear Sister Ati

    Inshaa-Allah this year will be a wonderful year for you and I pray with you that Allah Almighty makes it easy for all your wishes and goals to come true. Nothing is impossible with the help of Allah, you have worked so hard, no it is time to see the fruits of your labour. After difficulty does indeed come ease. I hope that you enjoy good time with all your family members and that you have many wonderful adventures in the coming year.

  6. Sister Zarina,

    Thank you for your kind duas. they are so meaningful to me. I am eager for 2012 mainly because I am going to start working again after four years doing nothing else but read books + journals + academic articles + paperworks..... I almost forgot how nice it feels when the sun shine on me. Owh! I was happy then, but I am happier now. SubhanAllah, AlhamduliLlah, Allahuakhbar!

    Sis, I pray you have a wonderful and fruitful 2012 too, InsyaAllah. You willl always be in my duas. Stay well and keep smiling as it brightens the day ;)
