All Things Eight…

i was tagged! gosh! this is my first tag in years. i won’t brag about any longer. let’s get it on!!!

8 Things I’m Passionate About
1. My Husband : i don’t think i can live without him. he’s always there for me, though things get very tough at times but he doesn’t give up. i love him.
2. My baby : here’s one little girl who got me up on my feet all the time. i can’t sit down to rest even a bit. but i love her, of cos. she has been a terribly cute baby, thank heaven. i wouldn’t trade her with any other babies. 🙂
3. Internet : when i’m not working, i’ll tie myself around the laptop and surf the net or blog or whatever it is. sometimes i feel like the internet is my life. i can’t seem to survive a day without surfing for at least 30 minutes.
4. Career : i have been a preschool teacher for 8 years now. i love children and i love the fact that they are so innocent and so forgiving. sometimes, i think the whole world should learn about forgiveness from kids. they’re the best at this.
5. Writing : it has been my long time ambition, to publish a book. i like to write love stories in Malay, my native language. i tried to write English stories but i just think that they sound funny. maybe i should try, once i have done with the current one that i’m doing.
6. Travel : i don’t care where the destination is, as long as i get to tire myself walking on foreign lands, streets and roads. i finally get to go somewhere next month with Hubby and his friends. won’t be bringing baby, she’s too young.
7. Peace : i hope the whole world will settle down anytime soon. PLEASE!!! i hate to see wars in poor, suffering countries. I HATE IT!!! why can’t people just live in peace?
8. Family : oh my god! i can’t believe i almost left them out. i’m proud that we’re VERY VERY close to each other. everyone included my extended family. we basically know each other from a to z.

8 Things I’d Like To Do Before I Die

2. i want to grow old and grey before i leave this world.
3. to at least have 3 kids.
4. to see my little Fateha grow up and get married. though she has health problems, i hope things will be sunny for her.
