A's first day in Primary School [Standard 2]

We wished school holiday wouldn't come to an end, but before we knew it, the first day of school had arrived! Aulia' first day of school was yesterday. She went to Standard 2 this year and I took one whole day leave to accompany her from the religious school (KAFA)  to National school. Last year she went all alone without us to Standard 1 and that's break my heart. Lucky our parents could send her to her very first 'big school'. This year, we have a one year old boy and her standard two sister! This mama can't figure out HOW her kids grew up so fast!


This year brought so many changes for Aulia' and Hans. Surprisingly, they adjusted well to all the changes. I can't honestly say that I love our new normal, but it's a work in progress!

Aulia' started Standard 2 this year, which just seems crazy to even say. We both have to wake up over a full hour earlier than everyone else, while it's still dark outside. My alarm goes off at 6, her alarm goes…

Bye 2018

It's the last day of 2018, and I can't help but reminisce! Just like any other year, it had ups and downs, but for the most part, it was a great year for my family. I know I say it every single year at this time, but this year FLEW BY! 
We ended the year with everybody we love still in our lives, truly blessed! Yes, there were difficult moments, but the years was filled with so much love, happiness, and lasting memories! 2018 was an exciting year for us especially when we welcome the member of our little family. 
Here are the biggest moments of 2018... 

Hans birth story

After nine long months, no wait, after ten long months we finally get to hold our baby boy in our arms and announce his arrival to our family and friends.
It was Tuesday, 2nd January 2018 I was at 40+1 weeks pregnant. I had a stressful week prior. A lot was going on with family, getting ready for A's primary school, trying to get ready for the baby and also nesting like a crazy woman! I was in a complete organising, cleaning frenzy, with my victim being the kitchen.

A few weeks before I went into labour I had been experiencing what I thought were Braxton Hicks contractions (with Aulia' I was induced which is very intense from the start so I assumed these contraction couldn't be pre-labour as it wasn't too painful). The Braxton Hicks continued over a couple of weeks and then nearly to new year I was very nervous the baby did not show any signs to come out. I can't really explain exactly how I felt, but I was ridiculously emotional. Most of the days I was crying my …

Preggy Diaries: 3rd Trimester #BabyH

Hello third trimester!
The last part of my pregnancy journey! I cannot believe how fast this has flown especially compared to my first time with Aulia'! This last trimester has flown just as fast as the entire pregnancy! I have definitely found myself slowing down a lot more these last few weeks. I also has taken 2 weeks off from work just to rest and do lots of walking (to the mall!). I am currently at 40 weeks and I have gained 11 kgs which I'm super happy with! Baby H in tummy weight about 3.2 kgs. No stretch marks so far. I am a lot bigger (bump-wise) than I was with A so I feel as though I might get lucky. If not who cares I will have another gorgeous person in my life!I used virgin coconut oil on my belly each night. Flawless! 😉
My mind has been quite busy lately trying to get organised for our new house, Aulia' getting into standard 1, and a baby so it can all get a bit much but feeling very blessed. My anxiety is always heightened during pregnancy which I acknowl…

Aulia' Brainybunch Graduation

My sweet girl finally graduated from Kindergarten, what a year! I was so involved with her class this year and attended the PTM every quarter and saw her making very good progress each semester. Yes, rasa nak nangis sebab anak dah besar. Let's just say between me and my husband it was a good thing we had Kleenex on hand! I know people scoff about all the "graduation" ceremonies, but I think it's important to mark the passage of milestones, especially when the child is moving on to a different school. Aulia' is going to standard 1 next year. They grow up so quickly that it's nice to take an hour to reflect on the past year, how much your little one has change and grown and how much is yet to come. I must say, the teachers in Brainybunch ttdi has done a very good job in nurturing them. 


Aulia' my darling, you will always be wonderful, you will always be brave, you will always be beautiful, you will always be intelligent, you will always be strong, you will…

Preggy Diaries: 2nd Trimester

I am overwhelmed with the people who congratulated us ❤❤

Okay just a short story about our 5 months ultrasound check up. My first "legit" ultrasound was carried out by our gynae in KPJ Ipoh, Dr. Zamzida and nothing seeing our baby's heartbeat the first time felt surreal. It's something like I have been very blessed to have this munch. Dr. Zamzida was very happy we finally succeed to naturally conceived and she pray the best for our journey and the baby. Unfortunately we won't be able to do our monthly check up with her because it would be too far for us to go all the way to and fro Ipoh every month. My husband already decided on where to deliver the baby and whom will be my gynae throughout our 10 months journey. He seems very committed for baby no. 2 😊

We started our monthly maternity check up at 12 weeks with Dr. Zunita at Tunku Azizah Maternity Home, and this is our ultrasound results for 20 weeks check up. Alhamdulillah, the baby heart beat is perfectly nor…

We are Pregnant!

Disclaimer: I have keep this in my draft for so long, somehow decided to keep it a secret because we haven't meet the gynae and check the baby's heartbeat yet when we had the pre-test at home. But since it's official, I am posting it now. All I can say is-All praise to Allah. We are finally pregnant! 💖

If you have been reading my blog, it's not a secret that we're TTC since last year. Our original plan is to try another 6 months after my HSG test. Been on medication for few months after my HSG and egg (ovum) monitorings, spending money to buy meds, monthly check up and ultrasounds has gotten us so exhausted and we finally decided to stay out of TTC business for some times until this year.

Last April, during my girls trip to Acheh with Aulia', I felt this kind of having butterflies in my stomach. Later during the trip, I felt seasick from travelling via the speed boat and snorkeling (Little that I know it was a morning sickness!). But it wasn't so serious s…
