When I became a mom..

Assalamualaikum wbt..

On the daily I get slapped in the face with the epiphany that I'm a mom..woah! It feels so surreal to me at times. I mean, I still fell like a kid trying to figure this world out-not perfectly put together, know-it-all mom, I expected myself to be.

But being a mom isn't about the success you achieve in life. And it's not about having the laundry put away and making home-cooked meals. And it sure as hell isn't about having it all figured out.

It's about love. Period.

When I became a mom, I learn the true meaning of love. Being a mom opens up a chamber of my heart that I didn't know existed. It puts my world in perspective and teaches me the true meaning of life. Family. Hope. Love.

Some aspects of my life before becoming a mother were better. Easier. But I don't think I really lived until I was a mom. Because now I'm not just living for me-I'm living for them. I don't just have the weight of one life on my shoulders. I have the weight of more. And I feel stronger than ever. Empowered. I'm doing exactly what I'm meant to be doing. Maybe every day isn't great and maybe I still have a ton to learn, but that may just be the best thing about being a mom. It provides you with the greatest opportunity for growth and development and learning imaginable. Not to mention the rewards. The simple rewards- the smile, the laughter, the "I love you's"-they far outweigh any rough mom moment. 

I don't have much figured out. I change my mind daily on my hopes and my dreams. Even just deciding what to make for dinner throws me for a loop. But the defining in my life- the one thing I am certain of and exceptionally proud of it this:

I'm a super hero, super mak- I'm a mom.
And I wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING.

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 TicketPro.com 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…
