..the new year, same old..




.there is always this thing about new years..it adds a year to your age..you looked at children of yesterdays, and see how adult they have become, leading their own life with their mate and children..and yet, not too long ago they were on your knees, making baby noises...and pakmat will be 67 in 3 months time...if this is progress, than it is..no time for dreams...just a leisurely savouring of regrets...things you should have and should not have done..the roads you should have taken...words that lingered on tongue but not uttered...and words said that should not have been said...everything becomes like a furry ball, rolling along the sand..

...neil diamond echoes in my mind...every girl will be a woman...as with every boy...

.,.happy new year.......

Can I wish you happy new year and stay young always? Diiringi salaam mesra daripada yang lebih tua.

Assalamualaikum Pak Mat
Selamat kembali dengan Haji Mabrur
Membaca coretan Pak Mat ketika menunaikan haji amat mencuit jiwa. Tak kurang... Malah mungkin lebih baik dari catatan travelogue Prof Kamil
Saya sarankan catatan Pak Mat dilanjutkan. Boleh dijadikan panduan kepada kami yang masih tercari-cari. Catatan begini bagi saya lebih mengesankan
Selamat berblog
Salam tahun baru 2012. Moga tahun mendatang kita sentiasa dibawah keredhaan Allah jua. Amin

Salaam Pak Mat
Happy New Year... Just last night we celebrated my mom in law's 66th birthday. It's not the celebration or the presents, but the gift of togetherness is what she cherished.
I hope 2012 will be as interesting, of not better for you Tuan Haji.

Salam tahun baru sahabat.. May The new year brings you and yours Allah's pleasure and Maghfirah..

Lemparkanlah kekesalan yang bersarang dihati jauh jauh.. Kerana tidak pantas kekesalan meniti fikiran orang orang yang yaqin akan keampunan dan kemaafan dari AlGhafoorurRaheem..
