Family Dine Together-2012 Wrap up

Assalamualaikum wbt.. Yesterday we had a  bit of family get-together. Since we had a birthday girl (my youngest sista) in the house, so we decided to celebrate her 13th birthday (Well, we're not really celebrating with cakes, candles or balloon but just a makan-makan on my treat). We dined at a restaurant in Pandan Perdana, Cheras. We try very hard to have everyone together for dinner today. This is something that has been very important to Mak and Abah . There are nights when we were not home, but we all know that eating together is just the norm in our family. Eating dinner together brings everyone together for not only a meal, but also time to re-connect with each other. A table full of children ~ toddlers, teenager to adults~makes for some interesting meals sometimes. But we love it and fell it is such an important time of our day. My big family:) My Lil munchkin:) Mak Abah :) Ainaa' making cute face:) My sister and her husband, Nina an

So what's next for 2013??

Assalamualaikum wbt.. The year 2012 is over in a mere 4 days and 2013 is about to arrive. Starting this year, I have decided to start a little tradition; having a list of resolution/ things to achieve every year (yeah, like I never did before!). Guess it's never too late so here goes nothing: 1) Lose Weight 2013 will see me have the awesome body I once had (I mean before delivering Aulia'). Oh yea! 2) Attempt New Look This year I figured, at some point, a physical change would be nice. Right? Oh mommies out something for your husband! 3) Embrace Change with open arms A toughie coz me hate change but me arms shall try to open for it, even is it's just a tiny embrace. 4) Travel smart and travel more Must learn not to buy items just because they're super cheap, visit more places and fulfil travel list for 2013. Amin:) 5) Save wisely I should have a healthy BIG account and save up more...I must save up at least RM2000/m. 6) A New Job

Like Mother Like Daughter:)

Assalamualaikum wbt.. Psychologists and researchers call mother and daughter shopping " consumer socialization". We mom's call it 'retail therapy', 'girl time', and 'bonding'. There's one thing that's amazing about having a girl. If you love to shop and get pampered,then there's nothing better than spending day together. This past weekend, we got the chance to explore KL city together and did all the things we love to do in a weekend. I LOVE shoes. No doubt about that. I would happily accept any kind of shoes. Our adventure started out in Paradigm Mall at Zara. One thing I loved about Year End Sales, it always seems to evoke a bright happy feeling inside me. Even the baby feel hippie-ish this season. We manage to get ourself ZARA Trafaluc Fall Winter 2012 collections. Best we enjoy these precious moments before she turns into an annoying teenager who demands for a more expensive shoes and papa would be like 'Like

My Very First Family Photobook:)

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. As 2012 came to an end, I decided to compile the many 'best photos of my family' into a Photobook.  I had a wonderful time putting my little family of three into a chronology where hubby and I had a pre-wedding photoshoot, then we got married & honeymoon, I got pregnant and the day Aulia' was born. I'm a sentimental sucker who just can't let go of any memories. With this Photobook, I've gotten all compiled!  I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the wonderfully simple user interface.  The online program is set out to look just like the book. I just uploaded my pictures and then it automatically creates a beautiful book for me. I spent about 2 days whipping up this book since I was so busy with work I only manage to do this early morning before office hour. I did some minor tweaks and readjusting after auto-generating a book. I uploaded my photos from my computer and this application allow pictures to be uploaded from

Dear Aulia'

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Happy 16-months old Aulia' sayang.. It has been a challenging month! You started the month with getting sick from the flu shot, which lingered for about a week. Then you developed a cough. Alhamdulillah , we got past all that without too much trouble and you gradually got better over the next week. Unfortunately, the virus messed with all of my sleep schedules. Ibu have been sleep-deprived for over two weeks now, and this somehow seems worse then when you were a newborn! But Alhamdulillah , you are back on track to being my good sleeper now though : ) Your language development definitely changed this month. Instead of just saying words here and there, you often try to engage in whole conversations with us.  Of course, it's all jibberish but you go on for a few minutes and use inflection, gestures and body language. Ibu sure wish Ibu could understand what you are saying! But Papa was so excited that now you can talk, he called us almost every

Renewing passport Online-Made my Life Easier!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. I'm flying off soon from Malaysia for work and I realized my passport has only less than 6 months validity which essentially means that I cannot use it anymore to travel overseas. I have heard about online passport renewal with myIMMs  so I tried to apply for a new passport online today. I must say that I'm still pretty impressed with the entire process. To my surprise, the whole entire process took me less than 1 hour including uploading my passport size photo, payment via credit card and printing the receipt. I had a 2 years passport renewal which cost me about RM 100. I have to key in my credit card details and then submit. Once the payment gone through, I'm done. There was a column in the form for me to choose where to collect my passport, and I opted to collect from Kajang immigration Office since they opened on Saturday! It was really hassle free to do it almost everything online. What I need to do now is that to bring along my old

Breaking Dawn Part II

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. After a long wait, I finally get to watch my favourite movie ever, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II-The epic finale. Ever since Part I ended, I was really curious to see how Part II will ended. I loved the Part I where Edward and Bella went for honeymoon. A must watch movie for a married couple! Hubby was never a fan of Twilight Saga but he'll definitely lend his ears to my story every time I finished reading the novel. Hub is a good listener though (Who's hubby doesn't anyway!). This time he promised me for a movie date.  So we went on Sunday night since I'm taking A.L on Monday, and Tuesday is a public holiday..yeay!.  The best part is that,I cried when there was some flash back of memories of Edward and Bella's love story since they first met in high school. Then they fall in love, Jacob turns out to be a werewolf, the love triangle between Edward,Bella and Jacob, and then Edward and Bella got married.  Called me

Romantic Candle Light Dinner@ Teeq Brasserie

Assalamualaikum w.b.t... Its my second wedding anniversary on 27th November and I want to make this moment a special one to my my dearest hubby since he's been working so hard and were not home most of the time. We didn't manage to get to spend much time together last month so today, we made a point to celebrate our anniversary with candle lights. and music. Last minutes, with God's will we managed to spend time just the two of us on our special date despite all the hurdles that come on our way...only Him know how thankful I was for that. Feel like ages since we last spent time together or going on a date! We had our Anniversary dinner at Teeq Brasserie at the rooftop of Lot 10 Star Hill. I did fall in love with the place.It had the most romantic setting and if there ever was one restaurant to impress someone, Teeq Brasserie has the ambience to melt any heart. It definitely did melt this fussy heart. The entrance itself was impressive, you walk up the stairs to ge

Pregnancy Test

Assalamualaikum w.b.t... I was hesitant to post this but it's what's on my heart and mind today, so here it goes.. I'm not pregnant. I know, a lot of people aren't and it's a strange thing to say. But I'm not pregnant. This weighs on my heart like a ton of bricks and it makes me sad. Every minutes. Getting pregnant with Aulia' was really easy. My delivery was tough but it was successful. After almost 24 hours of labour, I had a happy, healthy baby and I survived. What more could I ask for? I assumed having another one would be easy. I had these pregnancy symptoms for the last couples of weeks. I felt nausea and constantly vomiting in the morning..just the exact symptoms when I first had Aulia'..but I am not where I thought I would be. I thought that I would be announcing on Facebook, planning for my anatomy scan and excited to make Aulia' a big sister. So I had myself a pregnancy test.. Well, I'm a bit dissapointed wit
