Second Day of Ramadan - Trials And Rising Above Challenges

First day of fasting came and went. We survived it without any hassle. Life does go as usual, albeit a wee bit differently.

Waking up at 5.00am to cook pre-dawn meal for instance. Zaini was marvelous and actually cooked our first sahur of Ramadan. Raimie wanted to eat fried rice and that was what he got. Brown rice fried rice. Chewy. ;)

Massive traffic jam experienced on Wednesday. Yeah, yeah... blame it all on us rushing back after work to break fast at home.

The boys got a bit of shock earlier.
This red car banged into Zaini's car somewhere along Jalan Bangsar. The lady was pretty much shaken. Raimie too. Poor boy. Good thing no one was hurt.

The car will be in a workshop this weekend "recuperating".

That's one small trial for us during this holy month.

With trials, one should rise above the occasion, tackling any challenges headlong and come out stronger.

As does this guy, Ray. A fellow Malaysian. Running in the legendary Leadville Trail 100 soon.

  15. Rise above the occasion...and come out stronger. Thanks Lina. I really really needed someone to remind me of this. :)
    Hope Zaini's car come out as good as new. Kalau bab kereta2 ni tak kira berapa umur kereta, mesti rasa hmppfff kan. Dugaan.
    Oh malam tadi berapa km? ;)

    1. I hope the car OK cepat. Rumah ni ada satu keta je, so bila takde oh suffernya.

      Malam tadi kunun nak buat 26K. Then Zaini ckp, buat 26K time lari dgn sabun lah. Then ingat nak buat 23K but si anak time I baru finish 11K, duduk kat balcony tanya "mama habis pukul berapa?" and he wanted to wait for me before going off to bed.

      So run dpt diskaun jadi 18+ aje sbb anak tunggu (konon nya lah.) Tapi bila balik, anak dah tertidur atas katil, with lights on. Penat tunggu Mama tak habis habis lari. And I felt kinda guilty about it.

      Dilemma seorang ibu. uhukhuk
