New Sanctuary

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Alhamdulillah...mum returned home yesterday instead of today. The doctor discharge her earlier than expected. My sibling and I have been exited to have her so close and we often find ourselves gathered around her bed competing of her hugs and kisses. She has dedicated her life to making sure our home is a place filled with love, faith and compassion. As we start this new chapter we are trying to replicate what she has done for all these years. Although I'm sure we will fall short of a lot of things she has set, we are determined to continue to make our home a place where she can relax, recover and continue her journey. 

We are so happy to have her home, but we are still getting accustomed to the new daily routine and all that it entails. We often find ourselves looking at the clocks making sure she receives the correct drug, vitamins and food she needs at the right times. My Abah and younger sister, Dida have been stalwarts in leading these efforts. I'm amazed at their tenderness when working with mum. Seeing my Abah lovingly wipe her mouth has had a profound impact on my sibling and I. We all hope we can emulate the love that mum and Abah have had over the years in our marriages. 

So far I believe that mum is enjoying her new digs. But she's yet ready to welcome any visitor. We have converted the living room into her new sanctuary. So that she can lay in front of the tv and enjoying her favourite ZEE's series drama everyday. We will continue to try and make her as comfortable as possible so she can feel at home and progress. I'm sure the grandkids will all be busy drawing her pictures so they can out them up on her wall and share their love :) :) 

The kids on mum's bed in the living room..looking so happy for their Nani.

This comes at no surprise to those who know her well, but she loves getting towel bath and having her arms and feet rubbed with lotion. I was about to take her latest picture but she didn't allow me coz she said she was looking terrible. Mum doesn't know that we love to see her close her eyes in relaxation as we do our best to pamper her. She always look beautiful.

It is exciting to see her progress and we know this comes as a direct consequences of her hard work of eating the medicine and many prayers by family and friends. The journey is still far from over, but there is no place we would rather nurse her back to health then within the walls of our own home. May Allah SWT grant her a good health and hope she can communicate well like normal again :) :)

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…
