[PHOTO-LOG] Little Us

To keep things posted even when I'm super tired or busy, I'm just gonna post random photos in my phone and talk about them.


Me and Mommy. She said that my dad bought her the dress. Which is one in few. I think it's really pretty. I love this picture.

Me holding Fikah (cousin), Alham (cousin) and Naim.

Naim and baby Nadzmi. They were so cute!
Nadzmi embracing baby Nadzrin.

I took these photos when I was cleaning the boxes from our old house that was infested by 'anai-anai'. Many of the pictures were destroyed.

They never made it online. ^^

This is like, debut photos of me and my brothers when we were small. Where are these cute kids now? I miss them so much.

Jungle Roadtrip with ayah's Pajero.
We traveled so much. We went to Singapore a couple of times, and I love it when we'd go into the jungle for camping! My dad was in this 4x4 thing with his Pajero and we'll go deep into the jungle and cross the rivers, and yes, we got to see wild animals!

In Singapore. Naim at the back, while ayah is holding baby Nadzmi. I remember that dress so much. I look like Nazneen!

Nadzmi loves the little Nadzrin so much.It feels really weird that I don't remember seeing these two kid talking to each other nicely when they were growing up.

Our twin brothers, Nassry (2nd) and Nadzry (1st).

Baby Nasuha (last boy) and me being the eldest with six little brothers.

Back Then

Life was so much simple. Everything was enough. It was never about the material stuff. I don't remember asking my parents about what I want, because I always had this idea in my head that, "No, we can't afford that," I don't feel bad about things. I always make-do with what I have.

Having a barbie-doll is even a great luxury. No, I never had one. I played with them at my cousin's place, or back in Kedah at my grandparents' when we go back for Raya. Most of the toys were bought by my auntie.

Even Dutch Lady's Strawberry Milk was something that I really-really crave for and I never really asked my mom to get me one. Now my mom bought 6-pack of them, and they're always inside the fridge (no, I don't drink them since they're not for me ^^). I'm not the type of kid that will cry at the store and scream on the floor for not getting what I want. My sisters are.

Maybe that's a bad way on how to educate your kids by telling them that, "You can't always get what you want," which is putting a strain of their dreams and capability.

Maybe, "The world is in your hand, you can have everything you want if you work for it, nothing is impossible," is a way better saying that one should tell their kids.

I'm not a parent, just a big sister to 6 boys and 3 girls.

I miss having us not growing up. I miss playing together and go on trips.

We were so dear to each other. When we were little, we spend so much time together that it's so hard for me to swallow that we're really drifting apart nowadays.

I should cherish the time. I still have 3 beautiful little girls with me now.
