.: Sisterhood :.


On several occasions, I will have the urge to make this post, but I’ll drop it off at the last minute simply because I wasn’t sure how to start it. *besides rambling baloney*

Throughout the course of my ramblings, I have gotten to know some of my commentators on a personal scale, in which the topics of discussion range from intellectual to should I say gibberish bits through email, Facebook and the blog. Insha’Allah I’ll meet-up with Sister Shahnaz when I pop over to Singapore later this year. *still in the works* I had promised Miss Unique that within 5 years time, I hope to be able to visit her in Saudi, Anisa gave a holler that she is alright with me bunking at her place *I’ll squish those mangy monsters for you* and as for Farhana, it’s really our little secret, is it not? *coughs* And there may be a truckload of other sisters that I may have left out, so do forgive me if I did.

Hence, I may just do a backpacker’s trip when I’m 30 to visit the lovely sisters. Provided I am still unattached. Or I can always lug the other half in the baggage carrier. I’m sure he won’t mind. He married me, did he not? :P *coughs .. Farhana … coughs ... coughs ... coughs*

To the brothers, I don’t have any plans yet. It does seem really odd if I were to travel half-way across the world just to see you. But if I do, nah … then again … nah … well, it might happen therefore bully for me.

Funny how in the real world, I’m mostly surrounded by brothers *WHY??? WHY???* and in the virtual realm; I come across these beautiful sisters. *and more brothers ... aih~* It’s only a matter of merging it together, bringing out the best of both worlds I guess.

For the silent readers, you can interact with me if you want. Although I am selective in friends, it doesn’t mean I will wipe out any possibilities of expanding my social network for the benefit of forging respectable relationships, and empowering knowledge.

To get the ball rolling, I’m Hajar. Born in Singapore, and been staying in Malaysia close to 20 years. *I am not 20 and I was born in the south-western part of Singapore … so technically, I AM A SOUTHERNER!* I hold a Bachelors Hons in Multimedia, but I’m really not doing much in that area these days. Please do not ask me questions related to IT as I am able to genuinely exhibit complete ignorance by now. Yes, I wear spectacles full time. Born as a Muslim, I reverted *as in trying to be a good practicing Muslim* after returning from Hajj in Jan 2008. Presently, I can be found in Kuala Lumpur and this is not a marriage vitae.

Hey, it didn’t turn out that bad.

Assalamualaikum dear Hajar,
Yes... you rambles so much that I like them a lot because they are quite informative sometimes soulful.
And don't forget to backpack to Kota Bharu too. If not I'm not going to forgive you... hehe just kidding.
And thanks for the brief vitae. Now I know that we have almost a same background in studies and also "not doing much in that area these days". Since I already have your no, insya-Allah I'd love to meet you when I' in KL again maybe in August.

In this day and age the online and the offline world are encrouching on one another. The proliferation of new media is offering new opportunities and ways for people to interact. The online would world is another way for people to form a community and I guess this is what you have found. :)

Kakchik :: Wa'alaikum'as'salam. Soulful eh? Interesting. :)

Insha'Allah! I'll definitely notify you if I'm anywhere there. ^^

Cool~ Just ring me up or text me. :)

Nadia :: Thank you sis!!! :)

Ms.Unique :: It most certainly can!

Yeah. ^^ Surprise, surprise eh? But I'm Malaysian now. At least for now. :P

Business-related stuff.

Hajar Zamzam Ismail :: Likewise. :) Somehow, I doubt I'll ever go to the States, but one can never know.

Gabriel Mirza :: Why does this sound like a dissertation abstract ... ? J/K.

Point taken. Succinctly, lies the bridge to reduce the communication gaps and obliterate substantial barriers.

So I added myself and hope you haven't been feeling slighted all this time sweetie.

Makan places is A MUST! It's quite pathetic I can only recall several places.

i.e. Orchard Road *my family optician is @ the Promenade, God knows whether the uncle is still there*... uhh ... ermm ... Sentosa, S'pore Zoo, Jurong Birdpark ; the typical tourist locations. :P
