(boy, that sounds so wonderful!)
i am a mother of three boys. 3. THREE. tiga. 3 BOYS. which sounds totally insane 15 years before - but seemed so fulfilling at this moment in my life.
happy mothers day to me!
much has been said about my mak in this blog, so no more sad tales here. instead, i will just honor her in this small mention in my humble blog, totally insignificant as compared to what she had done for me and my sisters.
a mak who was very strict when it comes to making sure we've done our homeworks. a mak who was so cool i could tell her about the crush i had for this cute boy in poetry101 class. a mak so smart she could quote shakespeare. a mak who can make the best ayam masak merah. a mak whose eyes squinted when she laughed at my jokes. a mak who was the best listener - ever.
a mak who is my mak. happy mother's day.

god works in mysterious ways. He took one, but He gave 3 and more in return!
these are the women i go to when i wanna know how to steam fish. i went to them to introduce mr. khairul for the very first time. i call them up to tell them i'm at the hospital doing check-ups. i share news with them. share stories. share updates. most importantly, these are the women i go to when i'm hungry!
these are my 'moms' too.
my mak's sisters - aunty na, mak keh and cik. happy mother's day.

this is the mother who gave birth to her first born, who would soon grow up to be a smooth-talker. he eventually won the heart of this ipoh girl, and rode off into the sunset to a castle built on a rainbow.
thank you to mr. khairul's mom for bringing him up well to notice me as mother to his children. happy mother's day.
