Salam Ramadhan 1430H

Ramadhann is here again. I like Ramadhan because I don't have to think what to eat for breakfast, and lunch. The only think is what to cook for iftar and sahur. I like the tarawikh also because it is a once a year affair. This year I try to start from the first day. So far for the last 3 days I am good. Haven't skip it yet. InsyaAllah, I am trying to do it as much as I could.

There are only 4 of us in the house who are fasting. Hubby, me, Ayin and Syia. My mak doesn't fast this year. She is getting quite weak now. Hardly walk or move anywhere now. She spends most of her time in bed. She even eat in the bedroom. The only place she walks to is the bathroom which is only 3 or 4 steps away.

I think she is on her way to become senile (nyanyok). Although she recognises people but many things escape her memories. Solat time is always out. We need to tell her what prayer she is performing and how many rakaat that is. You tell her just 2 minutes away, and she will be asking you again what is she performing. She also need to be bathed as well. It is like going back to become a child once again. For now, I don't have to feed her but I wonder if she will need to be fed later on.

When she is like this, I can see the attitude of my siblings. Who really care for her and who doesn't. Who comes and visit who hardly ask about her. Even those who come and visit may not even spend time to talk to her, just making sure that they show their face. The only regular one is my younger sister. She is here almost every week.

With the ramadhan already starting, I am also thinking of the Aidilfitri. This year is another year which I can't contribute financialy towards the expenses for the aidilfitri. It is a big burden on my husband because the relatives who comes to our house every year is mine. Hardly anyone from his side comes, so he is spending on my behalf. I don't know how long it's going to be anyway.

To all my Muslim friends out there
Salam Ramadhan, may this Ramadhan be the best for all of us.

Of Spam And Article Writing


Dah lama AN tak jenguk blog sendiri ni. Tengok-tengok spam berlambak-lambak lah pulak. Kalau joget lambak tu meriah lah jugak kan. Ni entah apa-apa yang di tulis semuanya dalam foreign language (foreign to me at least).

Kat mana? Kat komen box di last entry lah. Padan muka AN lah sebab lama tak sapu sawang kat blog ni. Habis berabuk dah ni.

I am still writing but not into blogspot. No! No! I don't have any other blog right now. Maybe I will some day when I gather enough knowledge on how to sell affiliate products through blogs. OMG!!! AN ni tak habis lagi berangan lah tu hehehehe. I am sure I can hear small little voices out there mocking me.

Well, my principle is, IT'S FREE TO DREAM and don't you dare to take that away from me.

Coming back about writing. I have been putting my writing skill into something beneficial. I am writing for a local person, a young enough chap to be my son (but he calls me "Kakak" you!!!! hehehe) with articles writing. He pays me of course but not very much lah. I can't get rich by writing for people anyhow. That's as much I have discovered. Right now I have produced almost 30 short articles for him. By doing so I am learning his method of making money on the internet.

Now AN wants to dream again --- Now writing for people. Later write for my own affiliate blogs. Then maybe an ebook or even a hard copy. Imagine a title like "A Millionaire Makcik Blogger"

I told you it's free to dream!!!.

So keep on dreaming people. It keeps your imagination alive.

Salam and thanks for keep on coming even when I have not been very attentive to you all of you.
