Cinco de Mayo

Below is a selfie picture taken by GiLoCatur's eldest child, Fikri, using his smart phone on Saturday, 3rd May 2014. The venue where the picture was taken is the lobby of UiTM Shah Alam Hotel. The occasion is birthday celebration dinner of GiLoCatur's only daughter, Anis Fariha.

GiLoCatur just realized and remembered that actually GiLoCatur had taken a selfie picture a decade ago. Where GiLoCatur took the selfie photo? Believe it or not, it was in Sydney in March 2004 when GiLoCatur was going outstation overseas. Since GiLoCatur was outstation to Sydney alone, GiLoCatur had to take photos by own self. What camera did GiLoCatur use? Sony Mavica

GiLoCatur was in Sydney, 27th March 2004

Back to Anis Fariha.

Why this entry is titled "Cinco de Mayo"?

"Cinco de Mayo" is a Spanish language. It means fifth of May. Anis was born on fifth of May sixteen years ago in Shah Alam. Thus, "Cinco de Mayo" is the birth date of Anis. Since this year it falls on Monday, GiLoCatur and family have to celebrate it early for Anis which is on Saturday, 3rd of May.

my beloved daughter ANIS FARIHA!  

May Allah be with you at every step you take,
May Allah guide you in each decision you make,
May Allah help you when life gets rough,
May Allah Bless you with more than enough,
May Allah protect you when you fall,
May Allah hear you when you call,
May Allah sooth your heart when you don't understand,
May you always be in Allah's loving Hand.. Ameen

How time flies. Look at below pictures. One was taken in 2007 when Anis was 9 years old. The other was taken this year, 2014, after seven years.
