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.


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:)
