How do we grieve…

It is just surreal.

Honestly, I still can’t compute the fact that my sister is gone. It’s harder to imagine about it when you are thousands of miles away.

Thank you all for your comforting messages and comments, and for all the prayers you’ve sent. We truly appreciate it, and I am sure arwah feels the same about it too.

As for myself, I’ve been keeping myself busy to take my mind off. It took me a whole year to decide what color I want for my bedroom, and apparently, less than 8 hours to get it done. I bought 2 pairs of shoes and 5 tops. Yes, these don’t bring happiness to me, at least not now, but I guess that’s how I handle my grief. I still cry every now and then, especially after prayers, but I am getting better now. I keep thinking about all the things we did together, like queuing up for more than an hour at Baskin Robbins every 31st of any month. Arwah really loves Baskin Robbins, especially the Jamoca Almond Fudge flavor. And how we always make fun of her buying RM 20 pair of shoes, but end up buying like 10 of them because they don’t last that long.

Arwah was the reason I updated this blog. She really loves her nephews and nieces (she was 41 and was never married), and she always pestered me with Aiyu’s update. Try not to update the blog for more than 3 days, for sure she will  text me on MSN, asking for some new entry. Not only that, she was the backbone for Sooyaree’s Closet. She was the one who told me where to shop, what to buy, and most importantly, how to manage. Excel sheet, she was the queen!

Regardless how hard the phase I am going through, I am sure it will be worse for my parents. I think that will be the biggest fear for any parents, for their kids to go before them. But then again, ajal dan maut di tangan tuhan. Everything happens for a reason.

At least she is not in pain anymore Smile

We miss you Kak Long. May you rest in peace, you’ll be in our prayers always.

Kak Huda,

Berair mata saya baca ur post. Bersyukur kak huda sempat jumpa ur sister sebelum dia pergi. Mungkin kenangan terakhir tu boleh dijadikan sebagai pengubat kesedihan hati kak huda. Sabarlah dengan ujian ini. Saya dulu arwah papa saya meninggal (dah 10 tahun) tapi tak ada hari yang saya tak rindukan dia. Kadang sampai terbawa dalam mimpi sebab rindu.

Farah, Mami Little Hero.

Innalillah.. & salam takziah dari K.Sham. Membaca this entry, baru K.Sham teringat.. I used to kirim Hard Rock Cafe fm from arwah. Dia dulu pernah bertugas di Kuwait kan. My husband pernah jumpa dia while she's there. I think this is the "Nurul" yg I used to deal with. Very nice lady tho' kami hanya communicate within the fm community. Even my earliest HRC collection was from her. Going to miss her then.

Be strong dear, Allah lebih sayangkan arwah. Semoga Allah mengampunkan semua dosa dan kesalahan arwah serta agar arwah ditempatkan bersama para solehah di sana.

May she be among those in jannah, stay strong, i know how it feels not being there when your loved ones passed on, the kebumi, the sembahyang jenazah, and all little details you wish to know, you will know little by little, in the future, i was in your place once, no words can describe the feelings. and our deepest condolences to your family especially your parents.
Al Fatihah
