Eid ul-Adha Comes Again..

I haven't been to Mecca.
I have heard stories from those who went there. Interesting stories of religious adventures, self healings and encounters in the Holy Land.. Yup, they have always fascinated me since I was small. You know, like.. ".. I heard the sound of Angel's wings during morning prayer..,".. " I met my late mother or father eye to eye near Ka'aba,"..and "..this very old thin man, with white beard, white jubah with the most serene face you've ever seen sat next to me while praying and in a blink of an eye, he disappeared,"... But that, is not the main purpose to make the journey. Only those who truly understand.. will find what needs to be found in this land full of Barakah..

What is so special about Mecca that pull Muslims all over the world to go there at least once in a lifetime? Well, Hajj is one of the reasons. 

Hajj… Allah made it obligatory for every Muslim male and female to perform it once in a lifetime, provided they have the means and are physically able to do so. It is one of the five pillars of Islam. It was prescribed in the sixth year after the Hijrah, the migration of Messenger (peace be upon him) from Mecca to Madinah. A Muslim who denies the obligatory nature of Hajj becomes a disbeliever. A person who has the ability to make Hajj and does not do so will be accountable on the Day of Judgment.

Allah says:
"Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) to the house (Ka`bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses"
[Surah Al `Imran: 180] 

God willing, I would like to perform Hajj sooner or later. The truth is, I've been wishing to visit Mecca as soon as I have the chance. Right now, I'm trying to save and make as much money as I can to reach my goal. Wish me luck on that :).

In the meantime, let's enjoy the celebration of Eid ul-Adha with thanks to Him for granting us all another day to take a breath on this beautiful little earth.. Yup. We are all so very little... and our life is shorter than we realized... So why don't we enjoy it and do our duties to Him too? After all, at the end.. we're going back to Him.

Take care, all right?

Eid-ul Adha wishes

Adorable Duo

That's what their mothers hope they will be :).
These adorable duo are the daughters of my good friends.

Mothers have so much hope for their kids. More often than not, they hope their kids will have a good if not a better life than theirs. Many kids live up to their hopes.. while others may have let them down in some ways. Well, I suppose... as so many things in life, you can only but hope. You can give so much.. you can take so much. Someday, like little birds.. they'll fly their own wings and explore their own territories.

Owh, by the way.. I came across this blog named THE MEANEST MOM.

I kind of enjoying many moms' experiences through motherhood and hers is one of the coolest. My theory is.. to be a mother, you need to be creative- not necessarily in art! Make Life interesting while your children is growing up and they'll treasure the memories as long as they live. (Since I don't have any children yet, I might as well make up some theories of motherhood..heh) Really- hers was Voted Parent & Child Magazine's Best Mommy Blogger 2009. Now, if you don't have much to do or read, just check out her "funny without being crude" blog :).

Well, I've just finished an order from a huge fan of .. you know which band :)... The BEATLES! This is definitely cool because now you can enjoy my Caricature on the ECO Non Woven Bags. Woohooo! (heh- syok sendirii.. ). Owh, by the way, the price for Caricature is different..please contact me personally for any inquiry.

In this series of EcoBag.. it's quite simple as I focused on the Caricatures in black&white with a touch of Green color.

Here's Paul McCartney with "The Green and Winding Road"

John Lennon with "Let it Be".. I mean, "Let it Green.." 

George Harrison with "Here Comes the Green"

And their awesome drummer, Ringo Starr with "Green Submarine"

Already. Now that you have seen them. I'd like to share a song from one of my Beatles favorite- with animation! :). Enjoy...

Love is Blind..

...Marriage is the Eye-Opener. ~ Pauline Thomason

Happy Wedding Anniversary to all who have celebrated or.. are celebrating or.. will celebrate.. it! I'd like to share a couple of caricatures done for a couple of couples.. who truly celebrate the love they shared.. Aww..

It was fun to make the caricature above because she wanted to incorporate their cat named Grey. Both of them have just celebrated their 1st Wedding Anniversary. This caricature is made into A5 Greeting Card complete with a little wish inside that I designed and printed on another piece of paper. A little bit of collage and glitters going on in front of the Card :).

Here's an old friend of mine with 15 years of marriage and 4.. or is it, 5?.. kids under the belt. Her hubby runs a restaurant in Perth so she travels there now and then. I thought a little koala would be nice for this one. So, I did one. Hehe.  

Last but not least, enjoy this quotation which I found myself smiling when reading it. Teeheehee..

" I love being married. It's so great to find one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life."  ~ Rita Rudner
