Hi Jumaah Mubarakah to all..
Bumped into this when I was browsing through my friend's tumblr :
We are so busy growing up that we forget our parents are growing old too
Whoever made this quote. I'd like to say thank you. It's been a good reminder to me. And its true you know. It got me thinking that things actually were so different 10 years ago than it is now. My parents were different back then than now of course---fashion wise..., hihi.. okay maybe I havent been that sensitive towards the change in my parents yet but I have realized that my grandmother has changed. A lot. Just within these few years.
I can see that she's getting old real fast.
My grandmother used to be the Queen. I used the word Queen just now not to say that she's laid back and she gets all the "dayang" to massage her, manicure, pedicure etc. Thats what Princesses (moi) do. :P . Just kidding.. The word "Queen" just now is to indicate that she is in control of herself and her surroundings.
She was in control of her house. The kitchen was her sanctuary. Oh,She loves cooking! She used to cook all sorts of dishes in one day. With appetizers, course meals, desserts...and they're all sugary and full of fat....*yummm*.. And she has this routine you know, in the morning, she'll wake up, bring all the ingredients to cook for lunch out of the fridge, drink coffee + biscuits (her 1st breakfast), read quran, wash up, have her real breakfast at about 8.30 a.m while watching tv, prepare lunch, read quran and magazines and watch RTM1, by 12 lunch is ready but we can only eat at 12.30/1 p.m, she drinks her tea, by 2.30 she'll watch telenovela on NTV7 (one telenovela has like bout 200 episodes..prrrggh), takes a nap for bout 30 mins, by 4-5 she'll open her closet and fold her baju. 6 oclock she'll read today's papers and play this chinese marble game. Maghrib, dinner, watch the news, watch TV, read quran, turn on radio and sleep.
That was her routine then. Now she has already forgotten alot. So, things have change a lot too. She doesn't seem to care about the changes, but I do. I feel sad. :( . Maybe because since young I was closest to her but when I was studying in Uni I was a bit away and now that I'm back and she's staying with me I get to see these changes happening in front of me and it really makes me realize how old she has become.
Same goes with my gramma on my moms side too. When she lost her front tooth while eating, I literally cried. :__( . My youngest sister think that I overreacted but lets just ignore her shall we...
Nothing wrong from being old . But you understand me right?
I love my gramma :*
Can everyone do me a favor and read surah AlFatihah for both my grandfathers who has passed away? And for my grand aunt too? And for my baby cousin Muhammad as well? Thank you.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAH.. I just heard my gramma screamed "APA NI? MAKIN BANYAK JE HARI HARI!! " looooooooooooollllll - thats her complaining to my sister about the amount of medicine shes taking this morning. <3 .="." amount="amount" be.="be." but="but" can="can" drama="drama" everyday="everyday" everyone="everyone" house="house" how="how" in="in" its="its" know="know" my="my" p="p" queen="queen" same="same" the="the" you="you">
