First Date On First January, First Day of The Year.


First Date On First January, First Day of The Year 2023.  |  Muka surat pertama tahun 2023 yang lepas huda tak nak lepaskan peluang cipta memori indah untuk di kenang. Alhamdulillah, bila kita kenang kembali nikmat, ruang dan peluang yang Allah pinjamkan kita akan jadi lebih bersyukur. So everyday take time untuk "count your blessing". 


Okay, walau hari ni dah masuk 2 weeks January, huda baru sempat nak tulis moment our 1st dating. Penting ke dating dengan suami sendiri?

Bagi huda, in a week, huda akan cuba spend quality time dating like old days. Ambil peluang time anak-anak ke sekolah, dan huda boleh fokus hanya pada yang satu, iaitu suami tersayang, kunci ke syurga nan abadi. 

Okay, nak share sikitlah facts kenapa dating sangat penting dalam married life. Korang baca jer lah yer, malas pulak rasa nak translate , copy paste jer ni..hehe.. 

W. Bradford Wilcox and Jeffrey Dew highlight five reasons why date nights have strong correlations to healthy marriages: date nights provide opportunities for communication, novelty, eros, strengthening commitment, and de-stressing.

Communication: The importance of good communication is obvious. We have all experienced the consequences of poor communication with our spouse. Often times, it leads to unnecessary arguments or awkward tension. Poor communication will almost always lead to mismanaged expectations, which in turn lead to disappointment. These negative feelings will slowly pull you apart. Dating throughout marriage will combat these kinds of miscues.

Novelty: Date nights help create new experiences in relationships that have fallen into the mundane ruts that we naturally gravitate to as creatures of habit. If you find yourself stuck in the same routine every day, a date night can be something you will look forward to all week. If you plan a creative date, you will also create fun memories together that you can cherish later on. Either way, date nights will make your future, and your past, better.

Eros: The “spark” and novelty of date nights contribute to the eros – romantic love – aspect of relationships and can make you feel like you’ve just started dating each other all over again. Who doesn’t want to feel those butterflies you felt when you first started dating? Planning consistent dates with your husband or wife will help you fall in love with each other all over again week after week.

Commitment: By opening up to each other on dates, spouses build strong bonds that solidify their commitment to each other. This is important for the inevitable hard times that hit us all. When either of you are at your low point, will you have each other to pull you back up? How strong is your emotional bond with each other? If it needs some improvement, then odds are you aren’t dating each other enough.

De-stressing: Lastly, who doesn’t need stress relief every once in a while? Date nights are fun! Your spouse isn’t just there for you for the tough times, but for enjoyable times too. Relax together. Enjoy each other. Make memories together during well thought-out date nights. You will never regret the time you put in planning a creative date instead of watching the next episode of a show you watch too much

First Date On First January, First Day of The Year.  



Settle hantar anak-anak ke sekolah, suami ajak naik bukit puteri area depan pasar payang. Sadly, under renovation. So kami decided pergi breakfast jer lah di food court area pasar payang.  Niat hati nak makan laksa penang, tapi belum siap lagi. Yang ada laksam. makan jer la. 


Syok amik gambar, sampai handphone jatuh kuah laksam. Huhu, kenangan sungguh 1 Januari 2023 ni..

Settle makan, kami gerak ke library, sebab kena settle kan kerja sikit.

 

Petang lepas zuhur, check out dari library dan pergi lunch date di KTCC. Teringin nak makan ayam korea so kami dine in Daebak Chickeng. 



Habis lunch date, jalan-jalan window shopping sekejap dan terus pergi pick up The Arifs. 

Alhamdullilah, dapat spend quality time as married couple. Semoga cinta yang Allah pinjamkan untuk kami di dunia ini berkekalan sehingga ke syurga. Amin...
