Gifts for my beautiful mom

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Mothers Day is one of my favorite days of the year! As a daughter I love the chance to show my own mom how much I appreciate her. As a mom myself, mothers day reminds me of the birth of my own baby girl. Whether you are a mom, daughter, or both, we LOVE getting gifts that express just how special we are to everyone in the family. I remember always wanting to either give something or do something special for my mom on mother's day and it didn't matter what it was, she was always so thankful. She has 4 children and we all try to honor her in some way on this very special day of the year. I know, being a mom can often be hard, stressful, tiring and scary. At the same time, it's also the most rewarding job out there, worth every moment I can assure you. No doubt.

I've been thinking so hard what would be my mom's favorite since she's been staying mostly at home after her surgery earlier this year. She must be bored staying at home, watching her faves series on the television, house chores, cooking..yes, my mom still cook while she's at home..its been her all time favorite-feeding her family with her home cooked meal. The only time she can release her stiffness with all the house chore is when she's in her bath tub soaking herself with the warm water. It must be heaven for her since she's been  decorating her own bathroom with her favorite color (green), beadboard wallpaper, used the stylish baskets, jars and cups as functional decor accents. She even had a small fish vivarium jar thingy in her bathroom. So her bathroom more or less had become like a mini garden with the small pot of curry leaves that spread the good smells of it. I always loves my mom bathroom and her hot shower even more!

The Body Shop had been my all time favorite so I'm thinking to indulge my mom with a personalize gift from the new spring summer gift collection.

I choosed the Olive oil bath set which consist of Olive shower gel, Olive body scrub, Olive soap, Bath Pom Pom Green and Beautifying Oil Moringa. All these aroma and smells are sensory overload and I bet my mom love it!

To my mom:

You have lived your life for love of friends & family,
Neither asking or nor wanting a return,
Your day became a sunlit homily,
With other's joy your joy and main concern.
When 4 of us were ill, you also became sick,
When we were cut, you too, began to bleed.
Of our oil lamp you was the wick,
Drawing your bright flame for our need.
Some say that such behavior out of date,
That self-fulfillment is the way to grace.
But mom, without much voice, then chose your fate,
Finding greater truth in an embrace.
You lives on in the sparkle in our eyes,
Laughing, quiet, gentle, loving, wise.
I shall pray that Allah swt grant you the highest Jannah. Amin!

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…

The Hi5 Concert in Malaysia

Assalamualaikum wbt..
My little girl was so giddy about the Hi5 concert in Malaysia since we bought the tickets couple of months ago. She keep saying she's gonna dance along with the Hi5 songs with her friends in front of the stage. We bought the concert tickets via online at and the concert is held for one week until before the xmas.  One ticket for Aulia' at the Mosh Pit area costs about RM 283 while another two tickets for hubby and myself costs about RM 113 per person.

We came a bit earlier than the show at KLPAC after having our lunch at home and we visited the lobby area and bought  Hi5 souvenir for Aulia'.

The show started at 2.30 p.m. and as soon as the kids heard the entrance announcement, they all are on their feet ready to rock the concert.
Chatterbox or known as "Chats" first appearance and the kids been screaming all the time when it all started including my little one. We can see her excitedly jumping around from our seat above the mo…

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…
