Happy Malaysia Day - 16 September 2016


Praise be to Allah for the peace and prosperity which He has been channeling our way each day.

It's a public holiday in Malaysia today, as we celebrate Malaysia Day. Ya Huuu!

It's common to miss and appreciate one's own country when one is abroad.

Before I left for Scotland to pursue a Master's degree, N's mother (a dear family friend) supplied me with Lempuk Durian (Durian concentrated preserves) that lasted for a year! My mom who accompanied me in Stirling, used it to add Durian flavor to Bubur Kacang (sweet green beans porridge). We had this Malaysian dessert once a week, or twice during winter. I guess even more frequent than Malaysians at home. Having anything related to Durian when living abroad is one of the cures for homesickness. LOL.

I am reminded of this wonderful memory when N told me her mom Mak Aji made Durian jams this time. Yaay! It's always special because the Durians are from her own orchard in Batu Pahat, Johor.

Life is good!
Alhamdulillahi hamdan yuwafi ni'amahu wayukafi u mazidah.

May Allah grant us Malaysians more wonderful bounties in the coming days and years. Ameen.
