hi nabil!!
i'm one of ur silent reader..love to read ur blog!!
anyway, from what i read, i can feel that u really like (or luf) hanis more than a friend...
maybe hanis yg terlalu memilih kot..anyway, mcm u ckp, kalu ade jodoh x ke mana..
and i'll always pray that both of u will be together someday :)
