I shouldn't have complain

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..

Five months ago when my husband decide to leave me, err..I mean,work away from home,I told myself our situation was only temporary and I'd see him soon. I told myself the quantity of time we spent together didn't matter as much as the quality of time we created. Five months ago I may have been a bit of a raging dumb arse.
A month later I decided I want quantity of time over quality. Because, frankly, I'm tired of solo parenting 15 months old baby while working and coming home late at night. Which happen about every other night.
The upside to my husband's continual and seemingly perpetual absence is that I'm saving a truckload of money on razor blades. Personal grooming has flown out the window I tell you. My glass is always half full by the way. Still, I'd rather have him home, zoned out beside me watching How I Met Your Mother or lost to the PS world of football game where he has his own personal footballer whatever! I'm petty and selfish that way..I shouldn't complain really. I mean I just saw him few weeks ago. For 48 hours...
You know what he did in those forty-eight hours? Nothing fun, I can assure you. he cleaned the toilet, sorted through the rubble of laundry, vacuum the carpets and getting the new cooking gas since the last one run out for the last two months!

Then he had to go back to work. His job is robbing me of my gloating privileges.
Never mind that it allows us to put food on the table, a roof over our head and a lappy for me to whine to the internet. 
So when my husband called tonight to tell me he'd be home next week, I was a little giddy. I started to mentally prepare a hunny-do list to hand him the moment he walked through the door.  His presence would mean I wouldn't have to be responsible for getting Aulia's diaper change, the garbage would get taken to the dump,and I could sleep on freshly laundered sheets.

"umm, don't get too excited there sayang..I'm only home for 2 days. And then I am gone again."
I mentally tabulated the amount of time I'll have spent with him before I actually get to see him for a whole day again.
"Ya I know, I'm sorry."
There is no reason for him to apologize,not really. We're lucky he has stable employment and we're even luckier that we have managed to remember that we still like each other through all the absence :)
But still, 2 days does not leave a lot of time to scratch things off the hunny-do list..

"Okay, I'll make it up to you. I'll get you a galaxy tablet next week"

em..good idea B..Nice reward. get me one please! Can't wait..
Its true that I've become very exhausted these days..I scrubbed counter tops, I vacuumed, I did the laundry, I dusted. Forget the gym, I felt like it was a workout on its own..but serious I shouldn't have complain (What  have i become omg...) After that I spending time again with Aulia'.Life pretty awesome at the moment!

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. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  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

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
