360

Assalamaualaikum wbt..

It feels like my mind is being pulled 360 directions lately. In one week's time we went from 33 degree weather to 26 degrees  and to 33 again! and you'll know that monsoon is coming up. Maybe this has something to do with craving change in multiple areas of my life. Maybe this why I can't seem to focus on one task long enough to make any good progress in a sitting. Today I'm feeling the urge to sort through my thoughts-to clean things up in my mind a bit.


  • My daughter turns two two month from yesterday. So crazy! I still see her as such a baby, but she's really not anymore. I'm dying for her to start talking better. She's super late in her words and it's frustrating for both of us sometimes. I can't believe it's past time for me to start thinking about planning a 2nd birthday party!


  • I feel myself approaching a turning point- a fork in the road. I've spent the last decade growing up. Instead of using all of it to explore who I am, I finished school, got married, and started popping out baby. No regret. Yes, there will be more babies (at least one, I hope!) but there will also be more time spent dream dabbling and getting comfortable in my own skin. I want to delve a little deeper in to baking and cooking, try my hand at selling something online, and maybe even experience being a SAHM before my firstborn heads off to kindergarten. I'm sick of always wondering "what if".
  • The last 3 nights have been hell. For some reason I've been an insomniac even though I am painfully exhausted and want nothing more than to sleep. And then when I finally do drift off, Aulia' has a night terror (screaming, crying, kicking, fun times). I am so. dang. tired. Maybe tonight will be the night. How the heck did I survive Aulia' first year of life until she FINALLY slept through the night? Seems like such a distant memory.
  • I have a serious love-hate relationship with social media. One day I can't get enough of it, and the next I just want to kill all things technology and pretend it ever existed. Sometimes all of it just gives me a headache and I feel like I can't keep up. Anyone else?
  • Monsoonal affective disorder. Blah..Sunny day was a super productive time for me. I stayed up late into the evenings entertaining my little one and writing. Now? Now I can barely keep my eyes open and my brain focused past 10pm. I seriously don't know how I'm going to make it through the next 3 months until December. I need a happy light recommendation!

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!).
