By The Water #5

"It wonders me, how soon will it be?" Sunny Cloudy by Delude.

Credits to

They sat on the bench by the city park's lake, side by side. The view of the sunset there was stunning. They both mouthed "Subhanallah," almost in sync, but they didn't notice. Nur had been coming here to witness this majestic show of God for quite a while now, but it was Aliff's first time.

They wed just a day ago, and their fingers were still red with inai (henna), and they still couldn't bring themselves to hold eye contact for more than 5 seconds straight at any one time. This was fantastic. Perfect, almost, thought Nur.

Aliff thought back to the incident when they first exchanged words, him stuttering like and idiot just to order a glass of milk. He was glad he remembered to reply her Salaam, or else none of this would have happened. This. Ah, it still makes him smile from ear to ear just by thinking about it.

Nur noticed her husband's sudden smile and gave a puzzled look in his direction. Aliff broke out of his meditation when he noticed his wife's curiosity. He just let out a breathe of a laugh and put his arm around her. Quite awkwardly he did this, but he didn't care anymore. This is my wife, and I love her.

Nur was a little taken aback with this new ground broken by her husband. But in a few moments she got comfortable in his arms and felt safe and secure. She redirected her gaze towards the lake and the sunset. Now it's perfect.


Please take some time to make a prayer for all the Malaysian citizens in Egypt. May they get back to Malaysia safely and soundly.

May peace be upon you.

HAHAHA imma be yet another person yang comment on your video here (gila zalim, tak meletakkan benda di tempat yang sepatutnya, but s'only because i'm suspicious of ytube). anyway kudos dude! i was going bonkers with how semuorg seems to be using 'jew' instead of 'je' like there was one orang saying "bawak jew" on my cousin's wall and i was all WHAT BAWAK YAHUDI WHAAAT =________="

word(!) on the whole thing about how you're supposed to be shortening the words rather than adding more letters, except to make a point id est the usage of multiple a-s in LAAAAAAAAAAAAAME.

ok tu je bye.

Another one:

I'm really not a spelling nazi (honest!), but since everything else about the story is great, I thought you might like to perfect it off. :)
