.: Mellow grandeur :.


Delicate enclosure.


My brother took me out for a ride in his first set of wheels. I was about 11 years old. 

Me: "Look bro! It's the Eiffel Tower!"
Bro: "Silly little girl ... that's the electric transmission tower. :)"
Me: "You're no fun!"

Several years down the road as I was standing in front of the Eiffel Tower at the Champ de Mars, my brother sneaked behind my back and said ...


"Why are you admiring that electric transmission tower? :)" 


Amazing how that memory triggered when I visited a replica of the Eiffel Tower in Shenzhen, China.

Along with other memories. :)

Assalamualaikum Hajar. I can sense the closeness of your relationship with your brother. Happy and healthy relationship among siblings is crumbling nowadays.

Kak Chik :: Wa'alaikum'as'salam.

Honestly speaking, we have grown apart over the years and yes, gaps exist everywhere. It takes effort to bridge the distance.

Alhamdulillah we are still on good terms. May it stay that way, Insha'Allah. :)

Adib :: Yeah. :)

Mutmai'naa :: Some memories aren't meant to be forgotten. Welcome to the blog sis! :)

Lisa B :: It was intentional. Thank you Lisa. :)

Ms.Unique :: I'll feature the real deal if I can find them in my southern home.

The teasing days are long gone. He doesn't scruff-up my hair anymore [o-hail hijabs!] neither does he deliberately annoy me. However, he's still the ever-protective brother that will wallop anyone that brings me trouble. :)

Tempus fugit...

... Carpe diem.

These two Latin phrases are like brother and sister.
They always go together.
Just like you and your brother! Ha ha
