All my life I have always dreamt of meeting a girl of my dreams. A girl when I see her, I will hold her in my arms and kiss her without any hessitation.
The first woman in my life that loves me, was my mother. She will hold me in her arms and kiss me, but she is not the girl in my dreams.
Then came my sister Jeni. There were times when I held her and kiss her I guess, but she's not the girl of my dreams.
Then another sister came along, Lina. I can remember much more of her when she was a baby because I was then much older. I did hold her in my arms, I did carry her around and I did kiss her, but then she is not the girl in my dreams.
As time passes by I naturally got interested in girls and had some girlfriends, but none of them are the girl of my dreams.
One fine day I got married to my wife Faridah. I love her very much and she's been a wonderfull wife and we have three children, all boys. I thought this is the one girl I have been dreaming of all these years, but no, she's not.
I kept on wondering when and where am I going to find this girl of my dreams. Years went by and I am getting older and older. I thought I might just give up and forget about it.
Then my eldest son Jon got married to a pretty young lady Rin. I thought, 'Could this young lady be the girl in my dreams?" No, no, no, she is not the one.
One day, I was at the Maternity Ward in a Medical Centre. My wife and all my children was present too. We were in the waiting room, when all of sudden, my son Jon, came busting through the door crying out, "It's a girl." I can see the gleam in his face as he came and hug me.
Me, my wife and our two other boys were so happy.
After delivery the nurse washed the baby and later the baby was handed over to the mother. We all went inside, and for the first time I set my eyes on this beautiful baby girl. I picked her up and kiss her and say my prayers to 'Allah, swt'. In my heart a voice cried out, "Thank you Allah for this 'heaven sent', this beautifull baby girl , this girl, the girl I have been dreaming all my life, she's finally here, with me, I'll love her till the end of my days ."
I am your Grandad and you will always be my pretty baby Eriqa, the girl of my dreams.

Who is azyze gomez?

Anyways, here is Eriqa's website

hopefully I'll find some time to update everyone on both of my girls' progress, through the site.

Ellena will share a page on Eriqa's website, she's too young to have her own (can't produce any publishable digital content yet.... so instead I'll put up her pics)

and Lina Mastura, if you read this, just want to congratulate you on the 7As.... go read my comments on your dad's blog

everyone else,.... we miss you all... really miss all the family ... blogging is like a sad substitute.

love to all, and a happy new year!
