..agitation and lethargy..

..I have not been blogging lately..lethargy sets in after a while....the political scene contributed in a small way in that I am in a constant state of agitation...but there are no excuses for inaction...and there are  much that I would like to write about...whilst favorite subject is polygamy, there are other things that have affected me  and had left a deep impression...must be my trip to Makkah late last year...it has changed me without me realising it...I looked inward more...not that I like much what I saw, but I accept my flaws and weaknesses...and try to overcome them...I have become more forgiving with people..more so with my children...though there were times I still blew my top, I tried to keep them short...

..physically I am not too bad..waist at 30 inches and weighing in at 60 kilos..bp under controlled and no other known diseases detected...of course, given half a chance, I would like to grow back my teeth...but there are certain plus points in being edentulous...you avoid hard food, indirectly resting your stomach...

..financially, of course, I would like to have more money...but then, who wouldn't....I am still paying for the foolishness of youth, but its ok...those little things kept me agile..for no matter your age, you need agility to balance your finance...

..looking at my children, I have nothing much to brag about..to my mind they will not shake the world...but I am happy with them all the same...and proud, too...they have chosen their partners, careers and their path in life and, as in every one else, there are ups and there are lows...and to my mind, they are coping well..not all turned out they way we want them to be or they way they want to them to be...as in my forth daughter, Ebok...

..Ebok with her two children, eldest sister and pakmat, at
her second chance..her engagement...
who married immediately after  her graduation...I said no, but she said yes...two children later, she said no..and she was lucky...the boy/husband divorced her...and now she is busy with her second try at marriage..and I said learn your lesson well, for not everyone are blessed with second chances..

It is short, sweet and philosophical. Like you, at this stage in life I sit back and deliver a few words of advice here and there hoping all around is well. Our best lesson in life was not from 'menara gading' but what we did right and wrong. Am I right, Pakmat?

Sometimes one needs to fall and suffer the breaks and bruises a few times before one is able to cruise along :)

What can I say - Kelantan politics memang sokmo2 interesting.
