Trip to Penang

Assalamualaikum wbt..


I think this is the week of pure relaxation and indeed is a WONDERFUL week! We had a two weeks holiday last month and took a road trip from Ipoh to Penang. We left out on the 5th day of Eid around 4pm. The drive went really well. Aulia' slept most of it and we didn't hit much traffic. When we got there, we all got settled in and just hung out! Aulia' had hard time going down for bed. Wednesday we hit the beach at Batu Feringghi. It was so nice being right on the beach because Aulia' lasted all of maybe 30 mins, haha! She ate the sand, which drove me nuts! We only took her back out there two more times before deciding it was just too much work for 15- 30 minutes of fun. We brought her to Penang public pool and she LOVED the pool though. She floated around and kicked her little legs. Hubby and I had a blast and didn't complain once that we were not spending all day on the beach. After had breakfast on Thursday, we hit the Penang Hill and got T-shirt for Aulia'. Those were the two must dos on my list while we were there. We went out for ice-cream twice. Hubby met his Uni mate and his wife while strolling at Penang Hill. Its really nice to bump into an old friend after 6 years of graduation. We also went to Gurney drive hawker center to have the infamous pasemboq and Balik Pulau for durian. Our visit to Botanical Garden was awesome coz Aulia' can watch the monkeys in less than 1 meter away! We first ride on the tram and went for one round, then took a slow walk up to the sloppy hill where tram doesn't go through.


We decided to come back on Friday instead of Saturday like everyone else which was a great decision. We had done laundry through out the week so we only had one load when we got home,SCORE! We were all unpacked and relaxing by Sunday afternoon which was great. We went for grocery shopping in the evening and we relaxed some more. Perfect way to end a vacation!

Here is a big photo dump from the week.

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…

TTC Part 8: HSG Test Result

So last week, I did the HSG Test (Hysterosalpingogram) which is fallopian tube patency test. Kenapa buat? Sebab we've been curious about our unexplained infertility for 5 years. After consistently visiting my gynae every month since earlier this year and masih unable to conceive, doctor suggested that I undergo the HSG test to determine the tubal patent. 
Test ni perlu dibuat after period and before you expect your ovulation. In between la kira and make sure you did not BD before the test. So lebih kurang CD10 akak datang untuk buat test. During CD1 lagi dah buat appointment untuk datang pukul berapa and to check whether doctor available atau dia ada operation or what not during that day. 
So masa ni buat kat KPJ Ipoh, datang dengan husband because takut balik nanti tak boleh nak drive sendiri. Terus pegi bahagian Radiology (X Ray) bawa surat from my Gynae. 
Procedure X Ray semua sama you have to take off all your clothes and pakai la the hospital gown, and you need to bring your…
