After about 1 1/2 years here, we are finally heading home next week. So many good memories here! I am sad to leave, of course. But my heart yearns to go back. It has been too long since we left home. It is time for us to get a job, take care of our parents and siblings, and eventually, to start our very own family.

I have thousands of photos to post and so many things to blog about. I promise to force myself to blog again! I know I don't have many readers (probably because I've been hiding my blog URL from everyone he he) but it feels good to type them down, for memory's sake.

Life's good, alhamdulillah. I hope the same goes for you too! 

KL, wait for us!

52 weeks of 2016 concludes in 5 minutes.

2016 has been a wonderful year, one of the most memorable one. The highlight of the year was when I submitted my thesis and passed!

All praises to Allah.

Our 1.5 years of honeymoon is coming to an end. Time to face the actual adult world.

Onto better, bigger, greater things in 2017 in shaa Allah.

A part of me badly wants a child. I am so ready to have a baby I can call my own.

A part of me is still not ready to divide my attention and time to Hilmi. He is all I want to focus on now. It's been close to a year and I can never have enough time with him.

Hilmi, on the other hand is keen with the whole idea of having a baby, although he's not realllyyy in a rush for one. 

"Saya okay je, just tak puas honeymoon lagi lah"

Perhaps it is best to not over or under expect it. We will just wait and see.

I have been staying at the library from 10 to 10 on weekdays, that I decided to take a break on weekends. So I set up my workspace downstairs at home and by downstairs, I mean on the couch. Zero productivity. (Who am I kidding? It's weekend and on the couch.)

It was Sunday and we usually go out on Sunday mornings. Hilmi suggested for us to go to a nearby car-boot sale. So I closed the lid of my laptop halfway, put it aside and off we went.

By afternoon, we reached home. I wanted to lie down for a while before preparing lunch. And then it happened. As I was lying down on the couch, the back of my head hit the corner of the laptop, hard. I felt a sharp pain.

Hilmi was just right next to me and asked if I was okay. It hurts really bad, you guys. I wanted to cry. But I always try not to in front of Hilmi.

He asked me again "does it hurt?" that I could not help it but to wail like a baby. I nodded and cried at the same time. I think he got panicked because he has never seen me crying because of physical injury. He rubbed the back of my head and checked if it was bleeding. Thankfully it was not.

I stopped sobbing after 3 mins and immediately said "well that was embarrassing. I was such a baby".

That's how I got the huge bump on the back of my head.
