Auntie Yan Face Painting Special: Mother's Day Edition

My dear friend,

It's been a while since we last keep in touch. So how's life getting on? It is not always a bed of roses, I guess. But I hope there are more roses than thorns lying on your mattress ;)

Each passing year, the month of May is something to remember for Auntie Yan. It's the month in which we celebrate our son's birthday every year with gratitude. It is also the month in which we honor all the mothers and all teachers across our homeland, Malaysia.

I hope it's not too late to wish all mothers a Happy Mother's Day, and to all teachers a Happy Teacher's Day.

There are days that our children make us laugh and smile, and there are days that they make us cry. Anyhow, we love them to the bones, even in the afterlife... :)

Let me share some photos of the lovely mothers that Auntie Yan had the opportunity to face paint, just for your eyes only ;)

The month of May 2011 draws its curtain with heartbreaking news.. what would have been a happy month turned out to be a very sad one for us. Last Saturday, 21 May 2011 at about 2.30pm, there was a landslide that occurred at Madrasah At-Taqwa, an orphanage house in Hulu Langat claiming the lives of 16 boys. They gathered there for a nasyid (choir) rehearsal before the fateful event happened.

A full dress rehearsal photo, moments before the fateful landslide taken from here. 16 of them didn't make it. Rest in peace, dear sons.
To the victims' families and friends, our deepest condolences and prayers are with you. Tears cannot wash away our sadness, not even more so yours. May your heart be filled with peace and courage. May you have the strength to move on. Verily, God love them more than we do..

Semoga Allah mencucuri rahmatNya buat yang pergi.... Al-fatihah.
