Dream Big

After 5 with Santhiya and Mandy

So we're done with Ramadhan and Eid Mubarak. I know the celebration is for the whole month of Syawal but let's face it, by the second or third day itself the spirit has gone and what's left are just some dirty dishes and not to mention a whole lot of empty money packets scattered all over the lawn.

I had quite an okay Ramadhan and the 1st of Syawal was not too bad either. In fact, I was given the greatest gift in the month of Ramadhan. One of my 'oldest' dreams has finally taken into shape and becomes a reality.

I had my first article published!

Isn't that exciting?! I am just so thrilled and although it might seems like nothing to other people...but this is something that I have always wanted to do. It is like the reason why I am even here in the first place.

I hate to be those people who brag and talk about their mediocre achievement because I am not one of them. But I just want to share my excitement and to all my friends who have always been there for me and listening to all my whining ("I hate teaching". "I hate my life". "Why can't I just be a writer" etc etc)this is for all of you.

So people, you don't have to go and visit www.emmagem.com if you don't want to. I'm just saying... Hahah!

P/s: The photos above are all three of us last month during Ramadhan. And as you can tell, I am the only one in the picture who's counting the seconds for the time to break fast. The girls are just there for some good food at Rasa Timur Restaurant.

Song playing inside my head: Madonna's Rain (as suggested by VJ Dom)
