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 Facebook automatically as well, which could be more convenient because most of the pictures were there.

I was really really pleased when I received my book yesterday! The shipping was super fast! I received the book three days after I submitted it via online.

I took the 1 x 8 x 6 small landscape Imagewrap Hardcover. overall the book just feels like it's really high quality. In hindsight, I think the hardcover that just makes a Photobook seems that much more professional.

Nevertheless, I was quite pleased with the outcome. My particular book (which had close to 40 photos) cost around RM48 to make, so it's by any means cheaper than the original price (RM208) using Groupon Deal. They often have discounts, so you can probably get away with making one for a lot less than full price.
Aulia' was so excited when I showed her the Photobook and she was pointing hub's pictures and calling "Papa" so many times... well, she missed papa though.

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…

TTC Part 8: HSG Test Result

So last week, I did the HSG Test (Hysterosalpingogram) which is fallopian tube patency test. Kenapa buat? Sebab we've been curious about our unexplained infertility for 5 years. After consistently visiting my gynae every month since earlier this year and masih unable to conceive, doctor suggested that I undergo the HSG test to determine the tubal patent. 
Test ni perlu dibuat after period and before you expect your ovulation. In between la kira and make sure you did not BD before the test. So lebih kurang CD10 akak datang untuk buat test. During CD1 lagi dah buat appointment untuk datang pukul berapa and to check whether doctor available atau dia ada operation or what not during that day. 
So masa ni buat kat KPJ Ipoh, datang dengan husband because takut balik nanti tak boleh nak drive sendiri. Terus pegi bahagian Radiology (X Ray) bawa surat from my Gynae. 
Procedure X Ray semua sama you have to take off all your clothes and pakai la the hospital gown, and you need to bring your…
