Nisfu Sya'ban

Today, in a modest way we celebrate Nisful Sya’ban. And today coincides with our third child’s (stress on ‘child’) 39th birthday, just twelve months to forty - not making the two of us any younger, though. Somewhere he may be celebrating the day with his other half and their ‘three Charlie’s angels’. With love we wish him and his family all the best.

Berkhidmat kernaa Tuhan untuk kemanusiaan

Happy birthday to your son. How nice that his birthday coincides with the holy event.

Happy 39th birthday to your third child.
A majlis kesyukuran would be in order for the parent of the birthday boy ;))

Dear Pak Cik,
Strangely enough we always take it that the child is always there in our beloved children. We unwittingly volunteered our opinions on them when they are already individuals with their own idiosyncrasies. Many Happy Returns to your beloved son. Semoga sentiasa direstui ALLAH SWT dengan kemuliaan dan kesihatan yang baik!


P/S I still see the child in my eldest, born on Sept 03, 1972 (about the same time)

Mulim year is like Chinese, lunar. This year's coincidence will not happen again for many years in future. We often double-check on Cinese calender when we talk about moon-sighting etc.

Ayah Wang,
Tak payah lah buat majlis apa apa. Makan nasi biasa dengan ikang singgang pun jadilah!

It was the same year, 1972. That being your eldest is a good indication how much younger you are to me - almost a generation!

Dear Pakcik,
Your mention of ikang singgang woke me up. Hmm...
ikang singgang, daging pacok
cekak pinggang, mulut becok

eh eh....berpantun dua kerat pula ambe. har har har *evil laughs*

Dear Pak Cik,
I had always believed my form of salutation to you as Pak Cik is most apt and appropriate. Now it's confirmed!

Al-Manar said...


Penat penat gi mmancing
Ikang singgang ccuri kuching

Ambil penyapu ketuk ppala -- ha ha puah hati.

Kalau rindu sangat hendak makan balik Terengganulah.

Dear Hank

I thought in blogsphere there should not be too much fuss over protocol.

Salaam dan Selamat berpuasa.
