The Hidden Talent of Mine..

Assalamualaikum w.b.t...

Sometimes, after sustaining a brain tortured from the office, a hidden talent of mine is revealed..I really think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning..Probably because I slept on the wrong side of the bed last night. This pesky wrist pain I'm having right now is kinda making my life a bit difficult. But still, carpal tunnel syndrome or not (Please let it be "not"..) I still am happy because today I did something really great..Something momentous .something I can consider an accomplishment..Something remarkable..Something..worth BLOGGING about..



Today, I PAINTED a woman...
A woman, which describe myself, waiting for her husband to come back from far away place. I would like to name it as INTIZAAR.. an Arabic word, which means "Waiting"..

Okay, shoot me now for making an overly excited over something as menial as amateur primary school students painting..
Painting and art has been one of my hidden talents as a child (Go ahead, smack your forehead with your palm, I like it!)..it used to make me feel so matured, so creative and have so much know-how on arts and stuff. Just like my childhood pride of being able to paint the wall and did collage using the potatoes..or build a barbie doll house using the shoe boxes..Maybe I really am an artist trapped in an engineer's body..whatever...

I used to be so proud of my ability to display all my art works in my old house..up until I was fifteen..So priceless..And guess what? I still am very proud of myself and this "talent" of mine. If only my 'Abah' allowed me showcase this in the Art Gallery..I would have been famous now. 

I believe that all people have talents. Some write good, some draw good, some hug in wonderful way, some take gorgeous pictures, some are really good with kids, some have a lovely voice (those I envy!), some are good talkers, some are good listeners (believe me, that's a great talent!)..

I would in any way encourage Aulia' to appreciate her own talents. I would exposed her to creativity, develop her own taste and her own preferences. Somewhat.... I believes that arts develop the genius brain ever!

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..
B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays.


So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

Girls trip to Sabah

Memorial weekend after I had my HSG test, Mary, Kak Ju, Nini and I got to fly down to KK to spend three blissful days hanging out with our dear friend from uni, Jessica. The five of us studied together in UPM SIX years ago so we decided a reunion was a great excuse for me to ditch the husband and my little girl and have some serious girl-time in Sabah. Lucky for us Jess is an amazing host and planned everything out perfectly.

A few of the highlights were our stay at J Residence, the upside-down house in Tamparuli, Kundasang wet market, Desa Cattle Farm Kundasang, Luanti River Kelah fish spa and Sabah tea farm.

It was so refreshing to be with old friends and enjoy my first trip to north Borneo... and I can officially declare that I have covered most of the states in Malaysia (haven't cover Labuan yet!). yipsss!

My Instagram update for this photo: Waking up to this! -Our stay at J Residence Kundasang, the view is so breathtaking :)
Enjoying my morning view:)
