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.

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…

The Hi5 Concert in Malaysia

Assalamualaikum wbt..
My little girl was so giddy about the Hi5 concert in Malaysia since we bought the tickets couple of months ago. She keep saying she's gonna dance along with the Hi5 songs with her friends in front of the stage. We bought the concert tickets via online at and the concert is held for one week until before the xmas.  One ticket for Aulia' at the Mosh Pit area costs about RM 283 while another two tickets for hubby and myself costs about RM 113 per person.

We came a bit earlier than the show at KLPAC after having our lunch at home and we visited the lobby area and bought  Hi5 souvenir for Aulia'.

The show started at 2.30 p.m. and as soon as the kids heard the entrance announcement, they all are on their feet ready to rock the concert.
Chatterbox or known as "Chats" first appearance and the kids been screaming all the time when it all started including my little one. We can see her excitedly jumping around from our seat above the mo…

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…
