Teaching Aulia' some kindness

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Just a few months ago, I gave Aulia's 'Babysitter' advance of RM 300.00. She told me that her son is going for school this year and she needs to pay for his advance fees including sport attires, books and also his 1 year exam fees, and she was short of RM 900.00 What she did was, she sought help from all her 'clients' to see whether they could spare her the RM 300.00 (per person) up front, so she can pay for his school fees first. In return, her clients, do not have to pay for the next month babysit services that she provides to our babies.

Since her service is a necessity anyway AND she' has been looking after Aulia' for many months (I think it's almost a year now), I naturally agreed to help. I do not have plenty of money to part with, but for education sake, I was willing to give her the RM 300.00 in advance.

What a world do we live in when there are still some cynic out there who said I shouldn't have done that?

Don't get me wrong. I know they mean well. I have, afterall, lend quite an amount of money to friends, family, colleagues and even strangers- and sadly I never see them repaying me. Not even acknowledging the fact that they owe me. Or paying me back bit by bit.

What hurts most is when I see them at events or they tweet about their shopping sprees. It's not about the amount lend, it's about the gesture of not repaying back...or being absolutely oblivious to it all that pains or triggers my annoyance.

Ouch!

Worst still is how my Uni's senior who continues to ask for money when she has not even paid for the first money she borrowed 5 years ago!

How lah like that friend??


But despite not getting the money back, I will not lose hope on helping others when they need help. I am just a little bit smarter now- some says "you have to be cruel to be kind"- so by this mantra will I let them learn to manage their finance better. I hope. So no more lending money because I am in my own financial pickle. I mean, who isn't right?

So for babysitter and her son-I shall pray that you will be able to collect that money in time for his fees. Who knows? If one day I can't pay for my legal/ insurance premium maybe Mr. anak babysitter can help me, hoh?

The act of kindness is something I want Aulia' to have. To not grow cynical and to love unconditionally.

#Peace!

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…

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…

Aulia' tindik telinga:)

Assalammualaikum wbt..
Anak dara aku dah lama mintak dok nak pakai subang..alahaii..girly stuff gitu. Dia tengok aku pakai makeup dia pun nak makeup. Tengok pakai lipstick dia pun nak jugak. . . Bulan lepas ni dia tengok ada sorang girl dalam lingkungan umur 4-5 tahun kat mall pakai subang..Dia kata cantik..dia pun nak..

Memang selalu dia buat ayat macam tu kalau nak apa-apa..

"Ibu..cantiknye yang kat telinga dia tu ibu..tengok tu..apa tu? Aulia' rasa Aulia' pun nak la jugak"

Haa gitew..

Aku pun cakap..

"Tu subang. Nak pakai subang, kene tindik telinga dulu. Klau nak tindik, kene tembak dulu telinga sampai berdarah baru boleh pakai subang.."

Aku saja bagi cerita horror sikit kat dia so conversation tu boleh stop kat situ..

Dia pun tenung je aku bila aku sebut "berdarah-darah" tu...agaknya tak berani nak continue cerita lagi. Hahaha.Berjaya!


Ternyata aku salah. Anak aku boleh memorize cerita aku sampai la malam masa nak tidur memang kami akan baca…
