when a revert tells his story

i was at the dining table last night.. about to have dinner when N1 (my eldest sister) was about to tell this story. she had a chat with her office colleague. a man at the age of 50, a chinese convert.. or he said that he is a revert and not a convert. i dont quite remember how the story began but it went quite like this. N1 thought that he was at his forties.. and he chuckled when said, "hey, i am 10 years more of your age" and N1 was surprised.. when he was asked, when he converted to Islam, he told the story... 
i did not convert, i revert
huh? why did you say that? asked my sister.
because everyone is born a moslem.. only the way that everyone is brought up that puts them in a different beliefs. 
aahh... ok... my sister continues listening with interest.. :)
i wanted to revert earlier, but my dad did not allow me to do so... he said i can convert/revert only after he dies..  so, i dont feel good to revert as my parents have spent a lot and sacrifice for my education. until one day, i fell ill.. of dengue... i was very ill till i said to myself, if i survive this disease.. i will revert to Islam. 

and with God willing, he survived... but he still did not revert... until  he had 2 dreams.. the same one.. that someone came into his dream and asked... 

why didnt you revert? you have promised to if you get well.. 

he woke up... and could not say a thing... and he got the same dream again... and the same person asked him again.. 

that was when he decided to meet up with an ustaz... and revert... and he is happy with his life till now... alhamdulillah... perhaps one day, i can meet with this person :) insyaAllah.

all of us at the dining table..myself, my niece... asked, "so.. did he revert after his dad died??" "hehhe :D no... his dad is still alive" and all of us laughed.. 

i hope i remembered the story well to share this with you... and if its not that accurate, i hope some day, he'll read this and tell me ;)

Pops Eatery Wangsa Maju - my personal review

today was the first time that i did my groceries shopping online. i am a happy mom, wife.. etc.. hahaha :D then lisa said she was hungry and she feels like eating at Pops. we asked joey if he wants to come along.. and as usual, his first choice would be his anime. :p anyway, it was supposed to be my early dinner but i failed miserably... i had half portion of chinese fried rice. okay, here's my review about the restaurant. lisa has been promoting this place to me for a long time. date of visit: 24 Jan 2015location: PoP's Eatery, Lot 28055, Jalan Wangsa Delima, Pusat Bandar Wangsa Maju, Seksyen 5, Wangsa Maju. Tel: 03-4144 3162place & decor: simple and nice looks cosy for lepakking. cleanliness: 9 out of 10. restaurant service: efficient, quite fast. maybe because we were the only customer at that time. we noticed that they have too many workers. they could cut down into half to cut cost :p #justsayingfood: food was yummy... it exceeds my expectation... price: we are okay w…

me ~ iron lady :P

i have been thinking about it for many many years.. when i was much younger.. when i told my mom to have it on, my mom would say, "tak payah cantik2, nanti lupa diri" ... and i remembered that until now.. and i am already a mom. i guess the situation is different now.. i would just say that, "it's expensive sayang.. " which is much easier to swallow :) well anyway... today, i became the iron lady!! hahaha :D LOL... errmm i am also know as 'rimau' in the office so.. what the heck lah.. :P
after talking to lisa... her opinion was i better have it on when she still has hers on... she has 1 more year to go.. :) so somehow last week, i was at the dentist to send joey. to pull out his tooth.. and when we reached there, lisa was supposed to have her appointment.. i took the opportunity to ask more about having braces :) and that saturday, the doct made a .. what was that called aaa... mold of my teeth pattern.. and so, from there, i decided that i am gonna do i…

astro - reconnection

i am typing this post to share with you if, in future you face the same situation like me. i am known as payer for my parents.. hehehe :D simply because i use maybank2u for most of my transactions. it saves time... blah.. blah... not getting paid promoting maybank here! :p anyway, since joey is still on medical leave, he stays at my parents' place. he called me up to ask if my mom has paid the astro bill or not. obviously, not :p since the service has been disconnected!
so as usual, i will do the paying for my mom.. and i need to reconnect the service. normally i would call astro's 1300 number :) but today i learned something new.
