Baby Eat Right

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..

Aulia' has been running bad flu and cough this week so I decided to stay home a lil. Coz sick baby = one cranky fussy pot. She was literally like a walking bomb-throwing tantrums, crying and heck, even a simple instruction to pick up her toys would send her into a foul frenzy. I am worried that it was the start of her Terrible TERRIBLE Twos. But her pead said it's expected of sick kids who are on meds- they get easily irritable. OKIE- then how come the parent is getting irritated too??! But am happy to report she's back to her normal self,which include being EXTRA clingy!

So today I decided to cook something healthy for her to uplift her immunization level after a bad flu recovery.
Errr but still no idea on what to cook. sheeshh!!

Someone once said cooking is like need to put in the right stuff in order to yield the right end results otherwise you risk ruining your experiment. Hehe! I know its such a sh** thing to compare the likes of cooking to freaking science and if you're a scientist who spent years cracking your skull doing experiments and studying oh so hard to be called one-you would hate the sentence with a vengeance, haha!

Anyhos, since I have a fully stocked up fridge, I turned my experiment into a delicious food for Aulia'..yumss.
Checked these out:

Chop half onions and 2 clove garlic with some half chopped carrots, potatoes, chicken meatball, dried touchu and broccoli. I wanted to invent new stuff on my cooking so I added in the San Remo's spirals spaghetti together with all the other ingredients. 
In a pot, I fried the onions and garlic with my favorite 'sup punjut' -Puteri, using a lil olive oil, add in half tablespoon salt and fry again. Add in some chopped potatoes and carrots and fry until brown. Then pour some water into the pot, add in the remaining ingredients. Stir until soup are coated with the spices and ingredient's aroma..  :) :) 

Definitely not more than 30 minutes- Aulia's lunch is ready! A very comforting plate of hot rice and lace with yummy vege soup. 
Easy peasy lunch, just when I thought Aulia' would run the opposite direction, she sat down and ate it all. No fuss. No trying to convince her to eat it. Meanwhile I am impressed how I've used practically everything in the fridge into a weekend's cooking :) :)
Just before she ate her lunch, I insist her to eat the seedless grapes-great source of Vitamin C, even there may be no solid evidence it can cure the cold, but its antioxidant properties can't hurt. And to your knowledge, I washed the fruits and the veges for her soup with Pigeon's liquid safely cleans your baby toy, fruits and vegetables and it made from 100% food grade (edible) ingredients:) No worries, its gentle on skin. Smile smile:) :)

And now with another long weekend around, you bet I'll be cooking even more:)

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…

Hans birth story

After nine long months, no wait, after ten long months we finally get to hold our baby boy in our arms and announce his arrival to our family and friends.
It was Tuesday, 2nd January 2018 I was at 40+1 weeks pregnant. I had a stressful week prior. A lot was going on with family, getting ready for A's primary school, trying to get ready for the baby and also nesting like a crazy woman! I was in a complete organising, cleaning frenzy, with my victim being the kitchen.

A few weeks before I went into labour I had been experiencing what I thought were Braxton Hicks contractions (with Aulia' I was induced which is very intense from the start so I assumed these contraction couldn't be pre-labour as it wasn't too painful). The Braxton Hicks continued over a couple of weeks and then nearly to new year I was very nervous the baby did not show any signs to come out. I can't really explain exactly how I felt, but I was ridiculously emotional. Most of the days I was crying my …
