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. 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!).
