Aulia' being girly with BBluvsme

Assalamualaikum wbt..

I somehow forgot to update about this but a few months back, my darling girl decided to become girly by embracing her dresses, hair accessories and all things girly. I'm not sure if its just a phase but I'm happy nevertheless. Let the shopping begin!! I've seriously not bought her any dresses in a LONG time okie.

There was a time where she rejected her dresses and would scream whenever I try to put on anything remotely girly on her. In the end, we resorted to mostly two piece clothes and worst still, she would insist on picking out what she wanted to wear and that would be mostly t-shirts, clothes used for home!
Dressing her up then was truly a nightmare. Now I know how my parents must have felt when I was in high school and only wanted to wear baggy clothes like a boy. After I hit Uni and transformed into being more feminine, all I ever wanted to wear were a more appropriate clothes and back then I was a mere size XS/S so whenever I tried on clothes I would pray they would not be loose but NOW, I pray they would not be tight just so to hide my fats so yes now I'm back to baggy clothes. Circle of life and story of my life eh. Please tell me you can relate!

I digress.

So you cannot tell how it was a total 'yeehaa' moment when she actually let me put on the hair clip on her and let it stay on her head!

Animal print hair clip in Pink and Black from Girls

This was taken right after she woke up on the morning during the weekend. I tied her hair up with 2 clips at the side and it stayed on for longgg time until we went out for lunch that is. Can't have em all but at least she's happy with Ibu touching and playing with her hair now. I cannot believe how grown up she looks as well, sigh.


Orange top & Animal Print Skirt from BBluvsme

Dressy dressy baby girl she is not! But I can also sense that she prefers less complicated dresses that are light and airy. This girl's turning out to be quite the carefree hipster soul if you ask me. But I seriously fall in love with the cute animal prints on her skirt tho.


Moving on...


I came across this awesome pink top with flowers on the shoulder when I was browsing at bbluvsme. I stole some time off and actually grabbed it before it sold out! So how comfy she is?! I got her to model it as soon as she woke up. Usually it's no easy task since Ms Grumples needs time to cool off but she immediately obliged.


Again the animal print. What do you think? A bit too much or totally effin unique? Le sigh, if only I could work as a buyer in a kiddie store. I think that would bring me so much joy.

I'm also loving this 18 months and over age now. As a baby, Aulia' wasn't the easiest baby to manage with her constant restless-ness and fussiness but now, it's safe to say that she is MUCH more manageable now that she understand things a whole lot better i.e., wearing dresses and styling. Just a month ago my mom was saying how much Aulia' has grown up and I couldn't agree more!  She certainly can express herself (occasionally she goes off tangent and cries so I ask her to TELL Ibu what you want instead of crying away and it works) so it's easier for us to do a lot of things like hang out longer in the mall or attend to errands with baby in tow.
This week we'll be attending her third swimming class together *finger crossed* she will be well behaved and enjoys herself!

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:)
