Raya Quickie : Forgive and Forget

12:15:00 AM

Eid Mubarak! Selamat Hari Raya to all of you, maaf zahir dan batin . In the spirit of Eid al-Fitr, if I have offended or hurt any of you in any way, I am truly sorry. Whoever reads this, I hope you'll forgive me for any wrongdoings that I've committed against you.

How many times have we said maaf zahir dan batin (I'm not really sure how to translate it other than to apologize for intentional and unintentional wrong doings). This had me thinking and as I was pondering about this, I had a chat with some of my colleagues and asked a random question to my twitter friends today.

"What if we have forgiven someone but
we just couldn't forget even when
we have tried our hardest to do so?
Does it still count?"

The conclusion from the many feedback that I received was that it does. Because forgiving and forgetting are two entirely different things. I will keep that in mind.

To my lovely loyal readers I apologise for the lack of updates, especially during the times that I've been extremely busy. Believe me, I didn't do it on purpose. I also apologise to those who have persistently requested me to come up with a hijab tutorial video. For the time being I don't think I can come up with one yet, but there are a lot of very useful hijab tutorial videos you can find out there especially on youtube!

I am also sorry for not being able to reply to your comments, emails and messages as much as I would like to. But I always enjoy reading the comments. At least I know that someone out there is reading this blog. Haha. I've made friends with a few people from here and its another way of interacting isn't it. On my side, I wish there's some way for me to reply straight from the blackberry, instead of having to wait til I get home after work to go online, by which time I'd already be too tired and usually end up dozing off. It's easier for me to reply and interact on my twitter account because I can reply straight from my phone. So add me up. I will try and make an effort to reply to the comments, emails and messages more.

So anyway, below are some low resolution photos taken from my blackberry during Raya. Will post up real photos soon.
