Selamat Ulangtahun buat Ibuku

Khas buat ibu mertuaku,
Puan Hajjah Rasilah Abu Bakar,

Selamat menyambut ulang-tahun yang ke-55. Emak dah macam emak saya sendiri, bahkan saya kadangkala rasa Na cemburu kerana Emak seolah-olah melayan saya dengan cukup istimewa.

Bilakah agaknya Na boleh buat laksa, mee sungai (istilah cucu-cucu Emak), kari, nasi dan mee goreng sesedap yang Emak buat. Tapi Emak bukan sekadar tukang masak yang hebat, hinggakan Abah selalu bergurau boleh berniaga di pasar Ramadhan. Sumbangan Emak melangkaui semuanya.

Yang saya tahu, kami semua beruntung kerana Emak adalah Emak.

bila kita berkahwin kita berkahwin kepada 2 perkahwinan
1) antara kita dan isteri
2) kahwinkan antara dua keluarga

Emak mertua adalah emak kita juga syurga di bawah tapak kaki ibu

From Othman Abu Bakar, Executive Producer of The Edge, who is the brother of Rizal Hashim's mother-in-law, Hajjah Rasilah Abu Bakar.

Rizal, as your uncle, I am proud of your mother-in-law, for she epitomises the best mother and sister a person could ever have.

Successfully taking care of six younger siblings at an early age was not only a mean feat to achieve but also a reflection of her mental strength as a person.

Life was hard for the family in the 60s, but she made it less painful for us by taking good care of a sick brother (that's me), and four other younger siblings aged between 1 and 6.

Later as a mother, she honed her skills to be a "perfect" mother to her five children. She has produced a UK-trained medical doctor, a UK-trained graduate teacher (your wife), a young logistics professional with MISC Logistics (now in Turkmenistan), a junior civil engineer with UEM Builders, and soon a university undergraduate.

Only Allah s.w.t can repay her good deeds. Take good care of your mother-in-law, Rizal.

Your "Media" Uncle

To my media uncle,

A touching tribute to your sister.

God-Willing, I will take good care of your sister, as good as you have taken good care of your parents.

While this is not a forum to polish apples, Na and her siblings feel you are the living example of a real and true filial son.

Sdra Rizal,

Apa juga insan yang bergelar Ibu akan sentiasa menjadi tempat kita bernaung - samada ibu kandung mahupun ibu mertua. Selagi hayat dikandung badan, hormatilah dan sayangilah dia. Tiada yang lebih mengerti dari kasih sayang seorang ibu. Salam saya kepada ibu mertua anda!

Datuk Mat,

Terima kasih kerana sudi singgah.

Ya benar, terutama bagi yatim piatu macam saya. Keluarga mertualah tempat saya menumpang kasih.

Tahniah atas kemenangan Man U tempoh hari!

Salute to Pak Ndak & Abg Rizal,

You guys have put Mak on a well-deserved place in her life. On behalf of my other siblings we are proud to know that our Mak has been accorded great respect from the guys we consider our mentors. We always remember Mak as the cornerstone of our family because she is the bond, the tie that we always cling on to.

I still remember she kept all my exam results from Abah just to ensure that I was not scolded for my bad results. I always believe that she had provided us with good diet. Her combination of love and attention gave us the strength to pursue our goals and dreams to such an extent that she was the one who advised me to forget about being a teacher because she believed I could be a successful person in a different field.

To my media uncle and brother-in-law blogger, let us doa for Mak’s well being for the rest of her life.

Sayang from us in Turkmenistan,

Azam & Risya
