1. 3rd April is the birthday of my youngest sister, Nur Atiqah…a 16th year –old- teenager now, Dik Tiq (we love to call her that name since she was small)or Mak Ucu (the name my babies adress her), is striving hard in MRSM Beseri to achieve her ambition as a Muslim orthopaedic surgeon…why orthopaedic? Atiqah had undergone a major operation when she was three to reconstruct her femoral joint due to congenital defect. That motivate her to be an orthopaedic surgeon one day..
Despite her condition, she traveled alot, representing the state in the National Marching Competition, debate, jamboree and such. At the age of 12, she was even nominated as the best Platoon Commander of the state. For 15 years of her life, she hardly parted away from the family…always be the 'mama' child…yet, she has chosen to study in one of the most renowned college in the country after getting flying colours result for her PMR…no more Astro, no more waking up late, no more lingering-around-doing nothing…Happy birthday, adik…Kak Yoi doakan hanya yang terbaik untuk adik…I'm always proud of you, adik...
A soft hearted person, it always been a great pleasure to her spending time with Itqan and Ijlal...always a hard-working sister...her talent as a baby-sitter flows naturally within her..she was in Form 2 when I gave birth to Ijlal but at that age she had been a great help of assiting me going through my confinement phase...thank you adik...I never know whether I can do the same to you when your time comes...will always love you...

2. 7th April...is also a birthdate of my other sister...Ija...now completing her Engineering Degree in UiTM main campus...Ija, is my closest sister...a stubborn-headed person, yet got soft heart...Her fondness of children is hardly hidden despite her 'brutal' appearance...tough girl, huh? After completing her Diploma in Engineering, she chose to gain experience for three years as an engineer assisstant...the job made her an active commuter between north and south Peninsular Malaysia...she shared a lot of things with me...still remember, 8 years ago both of us went back-packing to Kelantan...just to feel the scent of Islamic state during fasting season...Happy 25th birthday Mak Ija...bila nak suruh Jun Xiang masuk meminang? Huhuhu...
Loving Mak Ija with baby Itqan...
3. 16th April...is my day...I was born 27 years ago in Hospital Seremban at 5.30a.m...Minutes before azan Subuh...old folks said, babies born at Subuh always have cool and patient characteristics...really? haha...maybe in some aspect...
The first 'person' to sms me was my own Bank...haha...I received the message from BIMB early morning...the message sounded BIMB wishes you a very happy birthday 16th April 2008... The best thing ever happened on that day was receiving birthday wishes from my fellow students...that morning, the moment I passed by a group of students they shouted out 'Cikgu, happy birthday!' how touching...some even made the effort to meet me personally just to wish that 3-word-sentence.
Ada lagi I simpan gambar masa final year kat HUSM dulu...
tu tengah working on my final year project...
analysing antimicrobial properties of honey kelulut...
Among my collegues, Kak Alia, my Head of Department was the first to wish coz she shares the same birthdate with me...thanks for the nice gift, I love that book so much...Happy Birthday to you too...thank you guys...for remembering this small, unimportant date...
It was 7.59 am when I received a message from hubby, "Sayang, selamat hari lahir yg ke-27!! ...we dined at Restoran Jejantas, Sg. Buloh on the way back to our home...thank you, hubby for the nice dinner treat...the best gift he had ever given me was to give me a whole nite rest by taking care after Itqan and Ijlal...thanks again, sayang...
See...that's why April is always close to my heart...2 of my sisters shared the same birthmonth with me...what can I say...in some way we also shared the same characteristics....
