Back To Blogging

I have decided to continue blogging after a long layoff. My last post was on 7th. December 2010. Until this morning I thought it was the last and I would cease to post any new post and would let the site be dormant for as long as I was in no mood to continue blogging again.
There is nothing specific that made me lay off from posting a new post. The only reason that immediately comes to mind is laziness, the lack of enthusiasm, lack of interest as so many other bloggers who can be considered as my peers has passed on or has vanished from the blogosphere without any parting post. The demise of Captain Yusoff Ahmad of The Ancient Mariner, Ruby Ahmad, Dalilah Tamrin's One Breast Bouncing and now Zaharan Razak of 'I' of the Storm is lying a comatose in a hoispital somewhere in Trengganu, and several other bloggers such as Mat Salo of Borneo Blues and The Pirate of Pulau Kapas with his blog Capt's Longhouse has all gone quiet, the blogosphere that I was comfortable in becomes lonely and desolate. Slowly I too went quiet.
Now I am waking up. I have a life to live and share whatever I have to share with my family and friends via this blog. This blog will continue to be the life within me. This blog will only die when I die.
After two weeks of soul searching in the holy lands of Medina and Mecca, I thought I would come back rejuvenated. My life should have been alive on the day I set foot on Malaysian soil again. Alas it was not to be and it took me a full month to begin.
Beside making new post again, I will begin painting again. There are a couple of painting which I promised to do for my friends and family but I have yet to fulfill their request. Namely Pakpayne with the almost finished Traditional Fishing Boat, HJ Angus for his Sunrise at KB's Waterfront, a painting for my son Azrin and daughter Azini since both of them has just moved in into their new homes.
One activity which I didn't stop was gardening. I did manage to clear a small patch on the vacant land in front of my house and I planted some chilli plants, some kangkong and some angled loofah. All of them are bearing now while the kangkong has been providing me with an endless stream of fresh green vegetables.
Since the last posting in December I have been blessed with two grandsons. First to come was Razeen Ilham the son who is 4 months old and he is the fourth child for my son Azrin and Yanie while Airil Hafizi is almost two month old son of my son Azuan and Ijjah. Their coming to this world was a joyous occasion which deserved a post on my blog at least as a matter of records. Unfortunately they came at a time when I just wasn't in the mood to write anything.
With this post, I hope to be back to my normal self and continue to do what I used to do before, sharing the joy of life with my family and friends.


  1. Welcome back, Zawi!

    And congratulations on your new datuk-ship ;)

    I know what you're saying about not being able to blog. I have been in that 'mood' for a while now, and also gave up blogging for a bit. Now, I mostly post funny bits, and youtube videos, only once in a while, being moved to write. I don't know how long this will last, but I'm hanging in there lah.

    Thanks to reading about your painting, and seeing your work, I was encouraged to start painting myself. And I put up almost all the stuff I've done on a blog - blunders as well as those that I like. It is a good hobby, and it takes my mind off other stuff.

    Life is a cycle. It has its ups and downs. I pray for more ups than downs, but sometimes, my prayers aren't answered! Hahahah! Hang in there, buddy. You are not alone.

  2. Pat,
    Thanks God I did post this at this second site cos otherwise you may not have seen the post as I am trying to keep my other site (the old LAISI alive and let this site die a natural death.
    Well it is nice to know that you too have gone through the phase and we can always prop up each other to carry on slogging as long as we still have the capacity.
    Since you are also a painter I suggest that we exchange our work as I would love to have a piece of your work on my wall. Painting is definitely something we can do to divert our mind from the troubles that our society is facing. Politics is one of the things that is ruining our life now. How I sometimes wish I would wake up one day and find out that some of our leaders are not with us anymore.
    Yes I will hang on here and you do likewise OK?

  3. Hi Zawi, how you doin', my friend.
    long time no see.
    How's the wife, family.
    Give your Mrs my best regards....tell her, 'tu budak cina dari Toronto say hello'. ha ha.

    Hows the paintings coming along.
    Sold many? keep it up, are good.
    You keep well, and stay young.
    Best regards.

  4. Lee,
    It is so good to see you here.
    We are doing fine just that I had been too lazy to surf and make new postings. I had not been painting much the past one year and i beginning to pick up the brushes again.
    Best regards from both of us to you and your wife too.

  5. Dear Pak Zawi

    I am certainly glad you are back to blogging. Malaysian cyberspace needs sharp thinkers like you to lead the way. You are really blessed in so many ways and I hope you can illuminate our minds with your input.

    Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts in my blog. It is really great to hear from you again. I will surely swing by again.

    Take care and have a great weekend with your loving family!


  6. Assalamu'alaikum PAK ZAWI
    Lama tak ketemu. Api memblog kini memang tak panas. Namun, seperti Pak Zawi, tak akan terus menghilangkan diri. Looking forward to reading your coming entries.

  7. Terima kasih kerana sudi membaca hasil blog saya.

  8. Hi Mister Zawi
    I was glad to read that you will continue blogging because you are a source of infos on all things Kelantanese. I am a Singaporean and I really love Kelanatanese food and kueh kueh. You should update your food category with new pics and locations. In Singapore we have many food from many countries but you will not find any Kelantanese food here. My guess is most Singaporean do not have a sweet tooth.

  9. Hi Zawi, how you doin'? Just dropped by say hello.
    You keep well, my friend.
    Best regards.

  10. Telah berlabur tirai Syaaban menjelma pula Ramadhan.
    Saya ucapkan moga berjaya menunaikan puasa dengan Jayanya.
    My best regards.

  11. thank you so much. fosbobetr good Archive
