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. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  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

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
