Today... isn't the best day

Today is turning out to be a rather crap-tastic day. Maybe it's just the cosmic way of balancing such excitement that's been happening and happening soon. Either way, it's sucking to high heaven.

Today I woke up for Sahor (fasting again) with a sniffle and a cough. Soon after my nose was blocked entirely and sleep became elusive until a while after. The alarm clock to get up for work couldn't go off soon enough; just when I was drifting into a dreamless slumber.

Today I went to work and the sniffles and cough continued on. Throat feeling raw but was too excited to think about it. Tomorrow is Eclipse movie premier!

Today loads of crap people tried to make life a total misery for me at work. Felt angry at the world and just wanted to go home and hide away.

Today I made THAT call to know the impending decision. It wasn't good news.

Today I burst into tears the moment I spoke to my parents. It wasn't pretty and I felt shattered to the core of my existence. Mum and Dad told me to never lose faith and God knows my hearts of hearts.

Today I decided I need a break and stopped tweeting my thoughts. I need to take a break from seeking and never finding. I needed a break for just two days.

Today a friend's tweet struck a cord. I'm sorry if I'm that. I didn't think you'd notice if I went and did my own thing with my own friends. They're not all new. Most of them are as old as ever long before I even knew you. And sorry if this is self-righteous of me. It's probably not even about me but I'm sensitive now so forgive me.

Today my eyes are all puffy and raw. Today I'm a mess. But tomorrow promises lots of bright future. Let's hope I bounce back soon.

Life After... Pt 1

Call it a wake-up call. Call it an epiphany. Call it therapy. Call it what you will. But as I was wallowing in my sorrows as 1st November 2017 began, and knowing that in 24 days I was going to meet my 34th birthday without my beloved Dad for the very first time, I thought to myself that I need to do this for my own healing.
Yes, I lost my Dad this year. He left to be with Allah at exactly half of this year, on 16th June 2017. When 2017 started I honestly thought it would be a great year. I went on my solo trip, I was on probation for a promotion at work, I was going to the gym, my family was in good health, everyone was happy. It was a great start of the year.
Then like the 2004 Tsunami, my whole world and life unexpectedly came tumbling upside down and inside out. All of a sudden my family had crises. *Note the plural form of the word "crisis"* And it started on a rather fine day on 28th April.
I was on edge that day as I did my colleague's wedding makeup. Part of me screa…

Life After... Pt4

"I want to see the trees."
Those were his last words to me on 26th May 2017. The day when we discovered Mum's cancer, the day Dad did his darnedest during physio at his bed just to get on the wheelchair, the day we took him for a little walk around the ward, the day before the 1st of Ramadhan... The day he had a stroke.
We would never hear his voice again after that day until Allah called him home on 16th June 2017, 21st Ramadhan 1438H. 
There were a few things that he wanted, which I failed to fulfill. For breakfast the day he was first brought to the hospital in Ipoh, he had told me he wanted fresh milk from Salim's Restaurant - I'm sure with 3 teaspoons of sugar for that perfect taste. While he was in the ward, he wanted some Miso soup from Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant, but logistically it was hard to get to the nearest Rakuzen and I only got him some Miso soup from Sushi Zanmai. He wanted some jelly when he was sitting on the wheelchair - I told him we would b…

Life After... Pt 2

Dad was admitted in the ICU on the morning of 30th April. He had a severe case of pneumonia (and no one knew how things escalated so quickly to acute pneumonia save for Allah). When we first arrived at the Accident & Emergency, the attending physician who is a Cardiologist specially assigned by a friend’s father as the Director of the hospital, explained that all they needed to do was to give Dad antibiotics and nebulizer. Dad was supposed to be in the ICU for three days for monitoring and treatment, and it was expected that he would be right as rain. Although the Doctor did say that there was a possibility that Dad may be intubated just to help him recover better. I didn’t know it then but it turned out that “intubated” meant Dad would be sedated. So when he was wheeled to his bay at the ICU and suddenly the Doctor said there was a complication, I felt an awful feeling at the pit of my stomach. Dad’s case was much more complex than a normal pneumonia case would be because he was …
