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. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  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

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
