This is my 365 photography project..


Day 361: A Memento

Day 361 of 365.

A souvenir (from French, for memory), memento or keepsake is an object a traveler brings home for the memories associated with it. (wikipedia)

Please ignore the nyonya (on suar kontot) on your back.

Location: Tesco Seri Alam, last Sunday.


four ten is today

Today is my Queen’s birthday. Happy birthday to your mother from me far far away.

See you all tonight in Skype.

On other notes, I had reminders to turn our clock FORWARD one hour for the official start of day light saving yesterday (Sunday 3rd October 2010) at 2am. But you do not have to do that on your iPhone, laptop, and desktop’s clocks – it will automatically be updated. That means that we have a three-hour time difference between Melbourne and Masai now. Cool.

good luck my dear son

Dear son, wish you luck on your UPSR examination starting today.

Once again, good luck aQi.

my specky children

For the first time, I took my family’s picture during hariraya festival with a tripod. This year’s theme is ‘red’. And that little boy is much easier to manage his pose.

From left: aQi (12), aDm (20), yaasir (3), aTi (18) and aBo (9).

not for rich kids

While jogging in one of lovely afternoon, I found this pre-school registration banner. Maybe they try to limit the class size to the minimum.

Round up my wild lalang

Yesterday I bought the plastic poison weed pump to kill wild ‘lalang’ in my small garden.  Last time I bought the same pump (two months ago) and after using it for a day, I passed it to my father since his metal sprayed pump tank is heavy and always leak.

let her read

She likes to read.

girls’ dormitory

Yesterday morning (Monday), I sent my daughter, aTi (18), to Institut Kemahiran Mara in Jasin, Malacca for college registration. She is taking Sijil Teknologi Lukisan & Rekabentuk (STLR). She will be staying here for the next two years, hopefully.

my mother passed away

My mother passed away last Thursday morning at 7.40am in Pontian Hospital while I was 300 kilometer away.  Innalillah wa-inna ilaihi raji’un – Truly to Allah we belong, and truly to Him shall we return. Alfatihah to Allahyarhamah Hajjah Salamah Binti Haji Tahir.

My mother is sick. It's been couple of months but yesterday was the worst of all. She cannot response anymore. May Allah give her from the abundance of His mercy. Amin Ya Rabbal Alamin.
