My first dinars!!
Alhamdulillah, ada rezeki anak-anak. Rezeki maknya? Tungguuu!!!
It all started when I bought my bling-bling from Habib last April/May. Salesman kat situ kept on coaxing us to buy gold coins or gold bars as investment, which I did not at that point of time. Acik baru beli gelang time tu, no more provision for gold. Since then, I got some info from the net and asked around. Thing is, the more I know, the keener I got to buy more gold!! Scary huh? When I voiced out my intention to my inlaws, sokongan padu you all! For one thing, orang pantai timur (with exception of orang Pahang), memang suka beli emas kan. Even TokBak (my FIL) pun menyuarakan sokongan. TokMi (MIL) suruh belikan Athirah gelang. Hok tu Mi kena bagitau Adi (Tebby's nama manja amongst his family. He has other panggilan but let's not dwell on that heh heh) Bulan depan saya dah tak kerja Mi.
Then it was Adam's birthday. Ever heard of Dinar Kelantan? As the name suggests, cuma banyak di Kelantan and some places outside Kelantan. And it's selling like hot cakes as well. Mintak kawan yang balik kampung belikan, takde rezeki. Mungkin bukan jodoh Adam dengan orang Kelantan.. eh... Dinar Kelantan.. Determined I was, cari jugak another name of Dinar. Found a few, Public Dinar, Dinar Sirih Emas (kalau tak silap), from Nubex pun ada but somehow I bought mine (er the kids' actually) from Public Dinar.
Yesterday I bought two 1 Dinars. One for Kakak, another for Adam. Adam has celebrated his 2nd birthday 11th May while Kakak will be 9 in August, which is not too far away. Balik tu Tebby tanya apsal tak beli 3 since we have 3 kids (3 at the moment.. statement apakah ini??). I said Iman's birthday is in November, lama lagi. Pastu fikir balik, emas makin lama makin mahal. Why not just buy now when I still have some dough? Terus beli sekeping lagi.
The agent came and delivered the first 2 coins right to my office lobby. Got some more discounts (cukuplah nak makan nasi ayam sama fresh orange heh heh) and free item. Nasib tak baik, free item takde stok. Ada sarung tapi takde isi. It was dirham sebenarnya.
Kakak's and Adam's. Labelled so when the time comes and cukup syarat, I know how much for zakat.
When he delivered another coin today, he came right in front of my office lobby and bawak sekali 1 dirham as promised. Terima kasih Master Jamal. Semoga murah rezeki anda dan saya jua.

To my children, Kakak, Iman dan Adik, I don't have much of things to give. I do have love with no boundaries, with no conditions for all of you. As for things, this is something small I started for each of you.
