Funny Talk

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Aulia' will be 19 m/o next month and she's very chatty! Its been so entertaining to watch her learn languages and the funny talks she's made along the way.

Last night we were playing with her Babydoll and she was saying "Bebe, dodo! dodo! dodo! mamam.??emmm daaaaap!" and it continues with another babbling which I don't really understand.

I was puzzled for a moment before I realized she was telling me her "baby' wants milk and the cookies she was eating earlier.  I gave her the right words and we continued on. Then Hubby join in and this time she told my husband that she was "getting a little busy with her baby", once I explained what she meant, he told her that she was actually want to get the milk fed to her babydoll.





Aulia' ran and get her milk bottle and fed to her Babydoll..  and she starts humming and singing her own songs. omg! She learn the languages so effortlessly that the mistakes are here today and gone tomorrow, it really amazing to watch as her little brains learn. I'm sure all babies develop at their own rate, but we still expect her to achieve milestones at a certain time. So when Aulia' starts to babble, we slowly teach her how to pronounce each words correctly. She'll probably not understand them all and she's likely to mispronounce and mix up what she says (often adorably so). We skipped the baby talk and instead, expand on what she says to help her build the words.

To support her language learning, we just  talk, talk and talk some more! We describe what we're seeing and doing. We took her to places (the stores, parks, library etc) where she can see new things- and hear new words. We singing songs and read books.. My mom said that we have to respond warmly ad enthusiastically to Aulia's attempst to communicate- she'll be thrilled when she gets her point across!

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:)
