Announcing the Arrival of baby Shania Amani ..

21 st March 2009 around 2 pm at Shah Alam Medical Centre, saw our best friends Shahrul and Surini welcoming their little princess, baby Shania Amani bt Shahrul Izham.

She was a stunner and guessing from that statement, she got her looks from her mama...alhamdulillah. But, undeniably her nose is from Shahrul. Well, you win some, you lose some...hehehe. Whatever it is, "she is gorgeous" as Amru might say.

She came out a healthy 3.16 kgs and 54 cms long.

Shahrul jokingly said that they had to do the op due to her head following Shahrul's head size...(ikut kepala papa Shahrul lah kot).

Not forgetting to mention, the clan that came by to see baby Shania for the first time. There were Suraya & Razlan (plus Nana & Yaya..both are getting more gorgeous each time we see them), Wafi, Zul & Maz (minus Zareef & Zara...get well soon baby Zara), Fatihatul, Amru, Masri & Rozilawati and last but not least Faizal & Mas.

Well, here are a couple of pictures of Shania Amani that I grabbed from our friend's camera.


Shania all cuddled up...

A picture of innocence...

Tanggungjawab dan Erti Seorang Suami

Kali ini, posting saya mungkin sedikit berat dari selalunya. Ini hanya sedikit pencarian tentang apa ertinya bergelar seorang suami.

Kebelakangan ini, tanggungjawab dan erti memegang amanah ini asyik bermain di minda. Lebih2 lagi menjelang hari pernikahan. Mampukah saya? Itulah yang paling banyak di tanya pada diri sendiri.

Mungkin teman/tunang kita memperlekehkan tanggungjawab kita sebagai bakal suami, tetapi itu hanyalah suatu pendapat. Reaksi kita pada pandangan teman/tunang kita itu? Hanyalah senyum dan menerimanya sebagai gurauan. Mesti di ingati kesabaran dan bertolak ansur adalah antara elemen penting dalam mencapai kebahagiaan rumahtangga.

Akhirnya, di bawah ini sedikit research and huraian yg telah saya buat sejak bertunang pada 14 December 2008 :
Mereka yang sudi berkongsi ilmu ataupun ada komen2 yang membina, amat di hargai.

Sunnatullah dan Syariatullah
Memahami syariatullah , iaitu segala hukum hakam yang termaktub di dalam quran dan hadis. Seorang suami juga, perlu memahami sunnatullah seorang wanita (isteri), yang Allah jadikannya lain dari dirinya. Seorang wanita, sifatnya lain sifat seorang lelaki,pelengkap dirinya, maka perlu difahami akan hakikat seorang wanita yang perasaannya lebih halus dari dirinya.
*Syariatullah pada seorang suami kepada isteri :
Nafkah zahir - tempat tinggal, makan minum .
Nafkah batin - merasa selamat dibawah naungan suaminya, tempat berteduh bagi dirinya, tempat tumpuan kasih sayang , tempat kemesraan dan segala yang berkait rapat dengan perasaan. Inilah hak-hak kejiwaan yang perlu dimainkan peranan oleh seorang suami kepada isterinya.
Seorang suami perlu juga melihat dunia kekeluargaan dari sudut pandang seorang isteri. Kerana seorang wanita punyai pandangan yang berbeza dari seorang lelaki. Kombinasi pandangannya dan isteri memainkan peranan dalam menjamin keutuhan dan keharmonian keluarga.
Kombinasi antara pengetahuan tentang syariatullah dan kefahaman terhadap sunnatullah , insyaallah, akan melahirkan keluarga yang penyejuk di mata penawar di hati, bahagia di dunia cemerlang di akhirat.
Uswah Hasanah
Seorang suami merupakan suri tauladan untuk keluarganya. Segala tindak-tanduknya menjadi perhatian seisi keluarganya. Anak-anak lebih mudah meniru apa yang dibuat berbanding mendengar apa yang diucap oleh ayahnya. Seorang isteri juga lebih mudah mengikut apabila suaminya lebih perihatin terhadap dirinya juga perasaannya.
Seorang suami merupakan pemimpin bagi keluarganya. Jadikan diri contoh terbaik di dalam keluarga.
Amanah (Tanggungjawab)

Menjadi seorang suami merupakan amanah besar yang dipikul bagi seorang lelaki. Bila berjayanya akad nikah, maka seorang lelaki memikul tanggungjawab seorang wanita yang sebelumnya berada di bawah tanggungan ayahnya, kini berada di bawah tanggungannya. Didikan, agama, nafkah dan sebagainya yang ditanggung oleh seorang ayah.
Perkataan amanah ini perlulah selalu diletakkan di dalam minda bahawa bukan perkara kecil dalam membina daulah islamiyah yang terkecil dalam masyarakat,iaitu keluarga. Ilmu memainkan peranan dalam menjalankan amanah sebagai suami, dan juga amanah apabila sudah bergelar seorang ayah.
Matlamat
Seorang suami atau ayah atau lelaki, perlulah punyai matlamat kemanakah hala tuju yang ingin dibawa olehnya dalam kehidupan berkeluarga ini. Sama ada ke syurga atau ke neraka?..Mahu memberikan kemewahan dunia yang sementara dan berpoya-poya selagi nyawa masih ada? Mahu menjadikan anak-anak dan isteri sebagai perhiasan dunia semata atau sehingga ke dalam syurga? Jika mahu dibawa ke syurga, bagaimana caranya, apakah sudah ada?
Matlamat ini perlulah disematkan seboleh-boleh sebelum perkahwinan dilangsungkan , atau selepas bergelar suami. Jika sudah terlajak, masih boleh diperbetulkan matlamat ini, selagi nyawa dikandung badan.
Istiqamah
Dalam menjalankan tanggungjawab sebagai suami, sifat istiqamah atau berterusan dalam melakukan amalan sangat-sangat menjadi titik penting dalam menjaga keharmonian dan juga kesan didikan kepada isi keluarga. Jika seorang suami atau ayah, tidak istiqamah dalam perbuatannya, manakan mungkin dia akan menjadi uswah (ikutan) terbaik bagi isteri dan anak-anaknya.
Didikan seroang ayah / suami yang dalam tegasnya terselit didikan, dalam garangnya punyai asuhan dan dalam tuturnya penuh dengan kemesraan. Semuanya perlulah dalam kadar yang berterusan. Didikan kepada anak-anak dan isteri jika tiada sifat istiqamah ini, boleh runtuh sebuah instiusi keluarga.
Kesimpulan

S - Sunnatullah & Syaratullah
U - Uswah hasanah
A - Amanah
M - Matlamat
I - Istiqamah
Sama-sama kita mengambil pengajaran. Buat teman-teman yang bakal melangsungkan perkahwinan pada cuti musim panas ni, moga Allah luaskan pintu rezeki buat kalian, dan dikurniakan zuriat yang soleh lagi solehah dan sebagai pengganti risalah Islam di hari kemudian.
(Haih, tengah-tengah malam boleh fikir pasal ni….Sudah layakkah saya??…Anda pula bagaimana?..tepuk dada, tanya iman. Sama-sama muhasabah diri.Jangan difikir tentang hidup berkeluarga jika hanya mahu hidup berdua, tetapi fikirkan juga yang ketiga dan seterusnya.

Man Utd 1 - Liverpool 4

Wow!! Man Utd 1 - Liverpool 4

Last Saturday, was the darkest day in my life as a Man Utd fan. After the game, I prayed hard and begged for forgiveness from god for my past sins as I taught it might be the end of the world.
That's only way to explain this mauling at the hands of the Kop.

The Red Devils just basically had an off day & were very tired after a tiring battle against a tough Inter Milan side that really gave United a fight. Vidic even intentionally had himself sent off because of tiredness. Poor Vidic.

Whereas, Real Madrid rolled over for Liverpool in their Champs League tie & gave the Kop an easy 4-0 win.
United scored first through a Ronaldo penalty after Park Ji Sung was viciously brought down by Reina. It was an obvious red card for Reina but the ref gave Liverpool a gift. Figures.

Then, Vidic due to tiredness gave Torres a clear path to Utd's goal before half time. Vidic just let the ball fall to Torres' feet to score. 1-1.

Start of the 2nd half, it was another gift to Liverpool by the ref. Clumsy Gerrard tripped himself up but as Evra was near by, so the ref judged Evra brought him down. 2 -1.

Then, Vidic got himself sent off (due to being tired) and Aurelio scored from the free kick. 3 -1.

Finally, Dossena scored after coming on as a substitute. This is when you know that this was a United gift to Liverpool. Maybe it was one of the Liverpool's player's birthday.

A battle was lost, but the war is still there to be won.
So, this Manchester United fan is not worried at all.

GLORY GLORY MAN UTD!!!

Quintuple Dream is Alive for the Red Devils..

Last night saw the best football club on the planet, Manchester United kept the dream alive to sweep all in front of them by beating Inter Milan 2-0 in the return leg at Old Trafford. Goals from Vidic (4 mins) and Ronaldo (49 mins).

The tie got to a flying start with Vidic scroing in the 4th minute from a Giggs corner. Mourinho mentioned in an interview that he has watched 50 dvds of the Serbian's goals but it was a waste of time it seems as Vidic scored with an intelligent header to beat Julio Cesar at the far post.

United were guilty of showboating after the goal by giving the ball away with flicks, backheels and passes to empty spaces. This gave Inter a chance to crawl back into the tie.

Inter's front two of Ibra & Balotelli were guilty missing chances at the other hand.

Second half started like in the first. Utd in search of the 2nd goal and they succeeded with a Ronaldo header from a well worked move. Giggs turned back time with a mazy run and passed to Rooney who hit a peach of a cross for Ronaldo to head home from close range.

The Inter players started to show their frustration with tackles and physical contacts.

In the end, the score board showed United have come through their italian test and on the verge of creating history.

Bring on the Liver-fools!!!

GLORY GLORY MAN UTD!!!

Sensasi......Couples News....

Retak......

Sekali lagi pasangan popular in di lihat bersama2 di satu majlis babyshower, tapi kali ini mungkin muncul keretakan pada hubungan setahun jagung ini.

Mereka pada awal nya kelihatan mesra bersama. Tetapi pada akhir majlis semakin kelihatan ketegangan di muka Qariena.

boisanerd.blogspot.com akan membawa perkembangan perhubungan ini. Ini adalah kali kedua munculnya pasangan ini setelah pertama kali muncul bersama 2 minggu yang lalu di Mont Kiara.


The One at Shahrul & Surini's Babyshower

Babyshowers. The first thing that comes to mind is a group of moms and girlfriends getting together, exchanging stories, gossiping, having tea and crumpets (kat M'sia ada ke crumpets?) and exchanging gifts.

So, last Sunday, Shahrul had a babyshower for his expecting wife (due in 2 weeks) Surini. All the Shah Alam clan and other suspects converge at Shahrul's for this babyshower.

But I have a fishy feeling that it was just an excuse for our latest craze....CRANIUM!!! Jazdee didnt want me to team up with him for a silly reason.....because I have a blog. That's weak bro..weak.....hehehe.
When I told him that Zul also has a blog, he said "Zul punya lain, intellectual punya blog.."..then we laughed...wakakaka....

Well, boisanerd was grouped with Shahrul, Lukman, adik iya and Su. No prizes on guessing who were the champs...hehehe....

The whole babyshower affair was fun and it was a good excuse for the guys and gals to hang out, catchup and be closer aka merapatkan silaturrahim...

Last note, wishing and praying for the safe arrival of Shahrul's and Surini's princess and also for Surini's having her delivery safe and smoothly.



Mazlan & DeannaSu & Anidz
Food.....nyam nyam....uurrpp
Makan dulu...
Jazdee baru sampai....
Kak Long & Su....
Zul, Maz, Su & Shahrul...
The real reason for the babyshower...hahahaha....
Camel? Cow? Ostrich? laaaa.....peacock rupanya....apa daaa...
Baby's first handphone.....she got 2 some more...
The WHOLE CLAN.........say cheese everybody!!!!!!

Watchmen : An Intriguing Artwork

Never have I seen as many people walk out of a movie as I saw during a Saturday showing of “Watchmen.”
The dude that sat beside me I think slept halfway the movie (well..I heard him snoring). A couple in front of me kept asking each other whats going on, who is who and whether to walk out and why is that man blue and was this scene happening now or did these events happen in the past and, holy crap, why are we now on Mars; eventually, they gave up and laughed their way through the exit doors. (And they were not shooshed.)

My fiancee, shifted uncomfortably with every splatter of brain; she sank lower into her seat at the arrival of a nude Dr. Manhattan’s fully exposed Little Dr. Manhattan then insists (really insists) that we haul our asses out of cinema 7 rightly after the fairly explicit sex between Night Owl and Silk Spectre in the back of the Owl Mobile – or whatever it’s called. (The movie is rated 18SX.)

It’s hard to say exactly when the trickle became an exodus – but maybe a quarter of the theater walked.
Indeed, it appears this phenomenon is not unique to our showing at One Utama, but also other cinemas in Klang Valley.
I just felt that it was a just waste of a perfect Saturday evening..and also 20 bucks...down the drain I tell you....shiisshh
But, I think I wont mind taking another showing of the movie, but this time I should go alone. It is indeed an intriguing movie. Your mind is active from start til end.

So did you notice an unusual number of walkouts at your screening? Or was the audience riveted? Howling in laughter? Snickering? Or stone silent and still, wrapped up in the story? Let me know.

Kari Kepala Ikan Kampung Attap

This is one of the most talked about fish curry head @ kari kepala ikan places in KL. It is located smack right in the middle of metropolitan KL at Jalan Kampung Attap, under a few trees next to its original restaurant.

Seeing the crowd there, you know you're in the right place to satisfy your kari kepala ikan cravings.
Parking spots would be limited but when you got the munchies for good curry head fish, a man will do what a men gotta do. Trust me.

There were 9 of us. We started ordering the usual....drinks (my personal fav teh o ais limau @ ice lemon tea), white rice, honey fried chicken, chili bawang, squid curry and finally 2 curry head fish. Yup....2 heads!!!

While waiting for the food to come, I had a starter. Yep, these kinda places also have starters.

Starter...

Then, the food started coming,

Here is a close up of the fish head before it being devoured by 9 hungry guys,

Second head,
The squid curry is also a must have. I recommend it. Alang2 nak makan kepala ikan.

Squid curry

The other food compliments the fish head & squid curry very well.
Cili Bawang @ Green Chilies and Onions Mix

Cili bawang. Its mixture of green chillies, onions, soy sauce and lime. It makes the experience more enjoyable.

Ayam Goreng Madu @ Honey Fried Chicken

Finally, whats left of the curry head,


You dont need to go for the "makan berhidang" style like we did, you can choose to have it the
nasi campur style.
Whatever style you want to have it, you'll be promised a lasting dining experience.

Another thing to add, toss away the spoon and fork. Go in with both hands. More kick to it. Believe me. But just be prepared having your hands smelling of curry for the next couple of days. I take it as a momento of a wonderful dining experience. Hmm...nice.

The price if you're having the curry fish head would be a little expensive. But RM 25 (approx.) for 2 persons serving I think is reasonable.

Give it a shot and lemme know you're own experience.

The Last Evacuation Drill....

In a large multinational company..............

A fire alarm rang at 4 PM in a large office when almost all employees were in office (approx 5000). As usual the entire office was evacuated within 3 mins & all employees gathered outside the office in the designated area waiting for further announcement.


"The good news is, the building is not on fire..."

The Security Officer in charge made the following announcement:

"Dear employees - with sincere regret I have been asked to announce that for many of you it will be your last evacuation drill. Due to the recession the company is laying off almost 50% of its employees. So when this announcement finishes, I ask all of you to move back into the building and if your swipe card does not work then it means you have been laid off in which case you will not be allowed inside and all your belongings will be couriered to you by tomorrow".


"The Company has used this innovative approach as we didn't want to fill up the email box with lay-off mails and good bye mails in thousands & also to avoid any fight inside the office and the consequent security issue for all staff".



"Hope you have had a rewarding career with us and all the best ahead".


"Please move back in & try your luck".

The one when we had Shahrul's Birthday lunch at Ole' Ole' Bali

Yesterday the Shah Alam clan got together and celebrated Shahrul's birthday, albeit a belated one. Better late than never bro..Happy Birthday!!

Got to use the GPS on my new E71..chewah...got there on time w/out facing the usual jam... Yg pelik sikit tu, suara GPS tu selalunya perempuan tapi this time lak pulak...oohh..Amru rupanya...

The usual suspects were the b'day boy Shahrul, Surini (the glowing mum to be), boisanerd (bo), Wafi, Amrufm, Zul & Maz plus Zareef and baby Zara, Suraya with her girls Qariena & Qamilia, Faizal & Mas.

The venue was Ole' Ole' Bali at Solaris Mont Kiara (near Hartamas, dekat2 Haji Don). A new place for the clan but surely we will come again. The price is a lil' bit expensive something like Chili's or TGIF, but let me assure you, its worth it.

Replicating the Balinese food and surroundings, it is very cosy and chill especially after a long week. I had the Siap Mepanggang which was BBQ roasted chicken with yellow rice and mixed veggies. To wash down the food, I had the Ice Blended Pulut Itam which is a first for me.

Next time around, I will get the Ole' Ole Bali Trio which would be more ideal for a two-prong attack, Azhani & me.

The quietness of Ole' Ole' was broken by our chatter but hell, thats how we roll. The kiddies enjoyed themselves especially Zareef & Qariena. Little Zara and Qamilia enjoyed watching their older siblings.

Well, I'll let the pictures do the talking...
