Mum Health Progress

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Mum completed her 1st week of medication like a champ! As we anticipated it brought back many familiar and unfriendly memories for her. Instead of being negative about more medication I started calling it her 'vitamin' as a more positive spin. We're trying to take it day-by-day and week-by-week. It almost a month now since she falls sick!

So far she's doing great considering the usual side effects. She cannot eat. She can't control her bladder. If you've had the same problems, you know that it may take days or weeks after your last infusion to feel even the slightest bit of normal again. By her 2nd week she was feeling the pep back in her step. 

After spending over 2 weeks in HKL it is now time for us to go home. Friday we will be discharged and will return home. We have been blessed to been able to spend the time here with talented and dedicated doctors, therapist and nurses. Its not that I don't missed them, just hoping my mum won't have to come back here again. 

Mum medical issues with her fever, digestive system and blood cells seem to be doing okay. She is becoming more and more alert and talkative (not all understood) and can communicate pretty very well through yes, no and head nods. I asked her if she was ready to go home and she said yes. While coming home brings it own set of concern, I feel good that this is what is best for my mum :) :) :)



Hoping you'll getting better and better mum. Love you!

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:)
