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.

Glad you're back blogging and painting. Who is Fauziah Ahmad?

Pak Zawi said...

Salam Wan,
Fauziah Ahmad was a fellow blogger. I can't recall her blog but she is very popular among the lady bloggers. She passed away due to breast cancer. Unlike Raden Galoh, she had kept her ailment to herself until her demise. May he soul RIP.

Pak Zawi said...

Wan, Sorry I got it mixed up. She was the late Ruby Ahmad

GUiKP said...

You mean Ruby Ahmad.

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Dear Pok Wie,
I started reading (silently) when someone kelate maghi asked me in Sydney: have you read LAISI. Was quite upset when you went silent. Now, alhamdulillah and welcome back to blogosphere. purrrr.....meow!

Pak Zawi said...

Cat,
Wow! Somebody asked that of you? I am blushing. Thanks Cat, now I am even more inspired to carry on posting knowing many people out there are silently reading my blog.

welcome back :)

Oldstock said...

Welcome back Pok Wie. Good to know you are still painting and gardening. Maybe one day I buy another of your masterpiece. And perhaps if I do get to make a trip to Kelantan, I can taste the fresh home-grown veges...

Oldstock said...

Sorry Pok Wie, lupa nak tambah... I have an idea in my response to your comment in my blog.

resident.wangsamaju said...

resident.wangsamaju from KL is still around! haha.
Your writings reminds me of Hemingway, and thankfully you are back!

Pak Zawi said...

Tommy,
It is really heart warming to know you people are still following LAISI. I will be making new posts for you.

Pak Zawi said...

edelweiss,
Thank you. Cuti sekolah nanti tak balik Pasir Mas?

Pak Zawi said...

Oldstock,
My Masterpieces eh? I am so happy uou like them. You are most welcome to visit Kelantan and Pasir Mas. I am more than willing to serve you with my own cooking of fresh vegetables plus my signature fish dish. How about 'siakap masak sweet sour' for you? All of my family members like them.
I will visit your site this instance.

Pak Zawi said...

resident.wangsamaju,
I am glad that you are still around too. I will make a reciprocal visit to wangsamaju soon hehehe.

Welcome back, Abang Zawi! We have missed you! Gardening and spending quality time with your grandchildren are good for you -- growing things makes one feel alive and hopeful again. I can empathise with your temporary lack of enthusiasm and energy. Just take your time to come back to blogging and FB -- no pressure. Understand that you have friends here who care about you.

Pak Zawi said...

Ee Lynn,
Thank you for the understanding. It was just one of the phases. Hopefully i will not go through it again. Thank you for being my friend.

sripekan said...

Pak Zawi said...

Sripekan,

AWANG said...

Pak Zawi, I'm glad your are back.

Uncle said...

Welcome back Pak Zawi. Dah lama sangat dok tunggu!

Pak Zawi said...

Awang,
Thank you. Sometimes it needs some effort to get back to normalcy. I hope it will continue to be as enthusiastic as ever.

Pak Zawi said...

Uncle (Mohd Shahir),
Terima kasih kerana mengunjung.
Masa Pak Zawi buat Umrah baru ni dok perhati mana la satu hotel tempat Shahir kerja dulu.

Zendra-Maria said...

A wise decision Pak Zawi. I looked at my blog-roll this morning and found that a lot of the blogs have been dormant for months. I'm still considering whether to unlist them hehehe... Blogging is part of ourselves that we leave for posterity but now people prefer to leave snippets on Facebook rather than go full-fledged blogging. Anyway I'm looking forward to read of your adventures again.

Pak Zawi said...

Zen,
Yes it is facebook that distracted most of us from blogging. Anyway we have our own reasons for blogging, so we just slog on even though there is nobody to read it.

YieBody said...

Aku ingat mu tak nulih atas 2 sebab:
1. Fatiah ngaju.
2. Mu tak isap rokok.
Aku tak nulih sebab kedua2 sebab.
He..He.He..

Pak Zawi said...

Yiebody,
Aku nak gi Amanputra pada 29hb ni. Mari kita minum kopi kat Puchong.

Zabs said...

Salam Zawi,

Glad to hear from you again.

Berisman said...

Welcome back to blogging,my friend!

hi zawi... welcome back... i do understand your laziness... it is the same with me... i resist writing for some time and then record something on facebook... even sometimes too lazy to go for a golf game... ~chia

Pak Zawi said...

Chia, thank you for coming. I guess the same thing happens to others too. As a golfer you felt lazy to go golfing sometimes? It is news to me. May be after reaching the plateau of the game it gets boring. But in golf there are many side attractions that can spur you on.

Pak Zawi said...

Zabs,
Thank you for coming.

Pak Zawi said...

Pak Adib,
I have been silently following your posts.

Gurindam Jiwa said...

Welcome. Yes, I'm blaming Facebook, too, huahaha...

Pak Zawi said...

Mazlae, c FBan'tblame FB but ourselves hehehehele.
