"Faith" is a fine invention
when Gentlemen can see -
But microscopes are prudent
in an emergency.

Emily Dickinson

Berkata menuju benar

Claudius : My words fly up, my thoughts remain below.
                 Words without thoughts never to heaven go.

sejak akhir-akhir ini, banyak menerima berita kematian; ada yang kenal rapat dan ada juga yang tak pernah bersua muka.

Lalu aku tertanya; bilakah agaknya waktuku?

Tengah malam tadi, isteri kejut. Nak makan pelam muda.


Nasib baik senang cari. 

Buatnya minta durian; jenuh!

As it turned out, it is a baby boy from the ultrasound images. 

We are both happy beyond words. Alhamdulillah.

The trouble is; we have yet to come into a concensus on the name of our next little prince. 

I have few names on my list, and so is my wife; but none of them has the seal of approval from both parties so far.

Mikhail, on the other hand, is too young to vote.

Suggestions, anyone?

Mama, Papa and Abg Mikhail will be waiting for you. :)

Tahun ketiga.

Ad finem Fidelis!

My world is getting 'smaller' , I noticed.

Or is it more focused?

I prefer the latter.

Not quite the life I had in mind years ago, to be honest.

But I am happy this way, thus far.

Happy? I couldn't ask for more. 

But content? We will get there, eventually.

And for that, I will still keep a pair of weary eyes on the horizon,

looking for new adventures,

every single day.
