Booos the Word


Boo. Or Ibu.

A simple word out of a child's mouth that can melt any woman's heart. 

Except my little one uttered those words about 2 months ago @ 21 months and have been doing so every since.. *does the happy dance*

Before this it has always been papa papa papa and I admit, it used to annoy the crap out of me coz I was the one who would wake up at night to put her back to sleep when she cries, I'm the one who she insist carries her when she refuses to sit in the shopping cart when we're out at the groceries store, I'm the one she wants to hold when she wants some comforting while rejecting her papa, yet she would call out her old man from time to time.
I'd sit her down on the bed and teach her to call me 'eeee..booooo' I would go on like a freakin mad woman broken record. This would go on for a few minutes because I believe the more I drilled those glorious words into her tiny head she would eventually say it out loud and all will be good in my world. 5 minutes usually goes by and God knows I would have uttered those word like a hundred times and you know what she would say?

"AABUUU"!!!! and then proceed to giggle away!!

Mad mother: Can you say Eeeee...boooo...ibu

Aulia': Abu!! Abu!!

Yes, even that child mocked me so much that I was starting to think father-daughter were ganging up against me on purpose.

And it didn't help that some people were so proud with the fact that my child was calling out for her father instead of me and even asked me several times why doesn't she call me ibu. 

Honestly how do I even answer that??!

Naturally I said it's because we always teach her at home to call Papa, it's always where's papa, ask papa and she picked it up. As a mother, i'm always in front of her face, so all she needs to do is cry a little and I'm there next to her. 

Silence.

BAH!!

But now it's ibu ibu ibu ibu who's-papa ibu ibu, papa-who ibu ibu ibu to the point of it being overwhelming.

Aulia': aaaaeeee..booo

Not-So-Crazy-Mom-Anymore: Ibu..

Aulia': eeee..booo..

Not-So-Crazy-Mom-Anymore: Ibu..

Aulia': eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee..boo!

Yes and that can go on for a cool 5 minutes. And she sounds the CUTEST when she's calling out for me. No words can describe the feeling!!

Screw what people have to say. Who cares if I wasn't the first parent she called out for. Who damn cares. I'm enjoying every second of this. 

This is the best feeling ever. 

*does the happy happy happpyyy dance again*

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:)
