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.

I just want to use this opportunity to wish my family and friends, both old and new friends, a peaceful and joyous year to come. Those of you who know me well, know that I take my wishes and dreams VERY seriously:) They are sparks of imagination that remind me of the true celebration of life..FAMILY and LOVE!
I hope this coming year brings all of you closer to your needs and dreams.I purposely say needs instead of wishes because over the years I have come to realize that our needs are the 'real' wishes that we long for..wishes that are invisible to us until one day they serensipitously appear in front of our eyes. I promise myself that I'll keep a look out for them.

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:)
