THEY WILL ASK thee as to what they should spend on others. Say: "Whatever of your wealth you spend shall [first] be for your parents, and for the near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer; and whatever good you do, verily, God has full knowledge thereof." - Al-Baqarah (2:215)

Goodbye 1429/2008... Hello 1430/2009!

Hi there people! Am back from my break although right now am still suffering from the kendafect syndrome. The symptoms? Tiredness and body aches, especially the calves and the thighs.

What? You've never heard of the kendafect syndrome?! Okay then, it's actually short for "kenduri-after-effects".  :)

My nephew's wedding was held my parent's kampong house here in Ipoh, and so I have been rather busy myself although I am not the mak pengantin. I had expected to get back to my normal mode by now, but looks like I still need a few more days to recharge myself. I know it is this time of the year (school will reopen soon) that my PLHIV clients require help for their children's schooling needs, as a matter of fact a few of them have already contacted me for that. I promised them I'd get back to them by next week.

Anyway, we're already in 1430 Hijrah and it will be 2009 very soon. My wish for 1430 and 2009 is for the world to be more peaceful and for all of us to live in harmony. It doesn't appear to be that way with the latest happenings throughout the world, but I can always hope.

Now, allow me to find the cure to my kendafect syndrome before 2009 arrives. Till then, here's wishing everyone a wonderful and happy year ahead!

Komen Pak Malim, kucing ray yg alim.

Selamat Menyambut Awal Muharram, kata Pak Malim sambil memakai kain ihram. Burrrp! Aaaah. Kenyang, kan, dapat makan kenduri sana-sini, kata Pak Malim sambil berenang di Tasik Chini.

Pi Bani, salam maal hijrah and a happy new year! I have not had a kendafect syndrome for some time.
Have fun recuperating.

Pi Bani said...

Pak Malim,
Masa kenduri hari tu banyak kucing yang datang mengendeng, kata Pi Bani sambil makan rendang dendeng. Tapi bab pantun depa tak pandai, kata keldai. Yang depa tau, asyik kata "Mau! Mau! Mau!" kata Pi Bani sambil makan buah limau.


Kak Teh,
Sayang-sayang mama you pun dah besar panjang kan? Tunggu ajelah, tak lama lagi you too may get the kendafect syndrome.


Salam Ma'al Hijrah 1430 and Happy New Year 2009 to both of you.

Kak Pi, banyak benar ye kenduri? hahaha :D
Orang kata time time macam ni, takut nak tengok alat timbang berat tu :P

Pi Bani said...

Akmal,
Attend banyak kenduri tak jadi hal... dah biasa buat - pandai2lah budget makan sikit-sikit for each kenduri. Bab naik berat badan tu, tak payah kenduri pun dia naik... :) Kendafect syndrome ni happens only when you're organising the kenduri. Letih!!!
