Aulia's New Gadget

Assalamualaikum wbt..

When Ipad/ Tab was launched and everyone was seen carrying it around, I never really understood the craze about it. Now I am what you call a technie noob. Same goes with my husband. I don't care much for gadgets, and neither do they care for me. I also don't understand the fuss about having the latest phone and so forth. I might admire it for a while and wish I had one but I can never bring myself to splurge that much on a tool that might get lost/stolen or be completely under utilized due to my noob-ness, heh. So when most of the time people talk about the latest gadget or parade their latest 'canggih' phone I completely blank out hide my crappy BB old phone  and just equate their love for gadgets akin to my love for shoes? Except I think my love for shoes is a cheaper hobby than theirs, hahah!. 

Now I am no fan of getting my child addicted to such gadgets either. I think its plain bad when kids are shoved with their parents Tab/Ipad when they go to the malls. I've seen it countless of times. My child however is your old school kinda brat who ENJOYS going to the bookstore. I kid you not, the immense happiness she gets walking in a bookstore is beyond me. Aulia' loves flipping through books and when we go to the store she says "book book !" Too cute.






There was one time we took her to Borders and she almost cried when the cashier took her book away to key it into the system. I wont have any complains if she turns out to be a little bookworm coz I remember finishing up a thick novel in just one day!!I was so into my book that nothing else mattered. That's the power of a good book.

While I'm glad my daughter enjoys picking up and holding a book, I also know we need to keep up with times. Besides, some apps for children are actually quite beneficial and would be a good tool for Aulia'. Of course limiting her time on it is also essential- so ibu and papa can hog it :)

So now we are proud owners of the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 although the husband was acting like a little boy by warning me not to hog it to myself. He got further irritated when I told him I wanted to buy a HOT PINK cover for it. . Smile smile!!

To date its mostly filled with a few games for Ibu and alotsa of kiddie LEARNING apps for Aulia'. Some of the learning materials are actually quite good and little one seems attentive so far, repeating words and learning about animals.For the past 2 months I've spent teaching her these things and she has since picked up more words. Her favourite so far is this Elmo teaching tool and of course Pocoyo series!! That kid just LOVES her Pocoyo cartoon with her favourites character being Pato, the duck. But still Aulia' called it 'Titi'..

Dear Ibu &Papa thank you for this Galaxy Tab!! I can now access to Pocoyo whenever I want!


That said, we're limiting the use of the Tab only to home usage. And it doesn't help that every time Ibu buy an app,papa would received notifications from the Bank that something was charged to his credit card. But oh wells, I've been blaming it on his daughter's apps thus far so we'll see how long this can carry on.. coz papa seems very generous when it comes to his baby girl.Don't they all?  :) :)

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:)
