Imagination

Assalamualaikum wbt..

"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will." ~ George Bernard Shaw


I knew when I was a little kid, I had so much passion on arts and that's how I expressed my emotions and turn it into so many things. I made a barbie doll house from a shoe boxes and my bedroom wallpaper from potatoes collage! I think it's really fun and there are no barriers. You can make anything and express out your feelings onto a canvas or whatever medium. 

I realized my daughter get plenty of exposure to pop-cultures arts for her age range: "Dora the Explorer", "Gwiyomi", pop music, movies, and the like. Yet, my old school inner-say that my child also need to learn about and appreciate fine arts, like visual art at museums, theater, and more. She also need an outlet for her own creativity with opportunity to make art, like arts and crafts, painting and drawing, just like what I did when I was younger. 

I bought a set of washable fingerpaints watercolor and a set of drawing block from Toys R'us for Aulia' last month. I got it all on special price for stars membership club card. When we get back home, I introduced her with red, yellow, blue and green colors. She was so excited and had a blast playing with the colors. One color ended up being mixed with another colors, and she painted worms, flowers, eyes..basically and endless source of fun if you're creative enough to think of it.  It pretty funny I can say. 

I truly hope she never lose that creativity and imagination, and just plain joy in the simplest things that many would take for granted. It's wonderful to watch her mind works. 

Everything that is an arts experience for a child is a way of opening a door to a broader world :) :)

SuperMokh The Musical

Assalamualaikum wbt..


I never was a fan of any sports and to be honest I never knew who SuperMokh is. I only heard his name Mohktar Dahari, a legendary football player but really, I don't know the story behind him until yesterday. 

I received a text message from the husband earlier yesterday inviting me to watch a musical show at Istana Budaya. pfft kenapa tak cakap awal! It was Friday and I'm wearing casual but hubby said it was okay. I had something to finish up yesterday so we didn't make it to go back home and changed. The show started at 8.30 pm. We performed Maghrib prayers at the office and drove to Istana Budaya. We managed to have dinner before we entered the hall, or else we sure lapar until midnight!  



Our tickets was sponsored by SP Setia which was the main sponsors of the musical. The role of  Supermokh was played by rock singer and actor Awie and his wife's role Datin Tengu Zarina was played by Maya Karin. It was an energetic performances by all the casts including Dina Nazir (Eravengers), Rashidi Ishak and Douglas Lim. The music arrangement was equally splendid. We was amazed by the props they used for the musical show, it was all well designed and the lightings added noticeable value to this performance. The choreographic was wonderful and we had enjoyed every single scenes of SuperMokh's personal life in this musical show. Hats off to Hans Isaac, Harith Iskander and their team for an excellent efforts of making this musical show a success and most importantly inspire the younger generations about Malaysia's legendary football players. 

To SP Setia, thank you for sponsoring our tickets :)

He was married to Tengku Zarina Tengku Ibrahim and has 3 childrens.  In the late 80s, he was diagnosed with motor neuron disease (MND), and went to London with Zarina to cure his condition. After three years of battling the disease, he died from it in July 1991 at the age of 37.

I turned 28

Assalamualaikum wbt..

*Gosh, I'm old....*

To be honest, I was not looking forward to my birthday and definitely was not looking forward to turning another year older without achieving anything. Ever since after I hit 25, I wasn't very excited about entering my late 20's. Early 20's were awesome. I told my husband I didn't want any celebration, because we had too much going on. So we were going with that. But my mom never forgets my birthday and surprise me every single year. She put my birthday present on the table and was expecting me to come back early that day. She hugs me and wished happy birthday. In fact, I should thank my mom because what I am today is only because of her. I love you mom. 


 Thanks mom for the present :)

The husband insisted that we go out for movie that night, and I am never going to say no to that of course! We went to watch a movie together with my mom and our little one!


This week marked the first day of the first month in Islamic Calender. Hubby told that we need to come back early from office for end of year and new year du'a recital. We get to pray together and it was a nice feeling when your little one has come to understand some of the moves we did when performing Solah. Alhamdulillah!



I hope this year is more about making me a better mom, wife and daughter. I hope that in a year's time my wish list will be closer to fulfillment than it is now.

It's not okay to interfere when I discipline my child

Assalamualaikum wbt..

One of my new pet peeves now that I'm a mother is simply how annoying other parents can be. Let's not deny it, that even idiots can be parents and it's a sick notion sometimes when people who really deserve to be parents aren't given that opportunity while someone who can't differentiate right from wrong gets to pro-create one too many times and create more kids who become just like them making it a never ending cycle. 

Prior to having Aulia', if I saw a parent doing something un-parent like (whatever the heck that means) then to be honest, I wouldn't give a rat's asses coz I didn't have any experience of being a mother so it's not like I know better (though sometimes it's just plain common sense). But I didn't care coz I could just skip along..

But now that I am, haaaaah *rub hands* I can give my 2 cents opinion. Because I know in that exact situation, I would have react differently! And don't deny it, as a mother, we're somewhat critical about how others raise their kids, how others 'mother'-whether you subconsciously do it or not. Of course there's no denying that at the end of the day it's their child so they can do whatever the hell they want, just that it bothers me when such parents take a calculative approach that somehow affects your child. 

Anyho, one of my BIGGEST pet peeve is when a parent feed their baby with junk foods and soft drinks!! It makes me BOIL because not only is that idiotic parent refraining their own flesh and blood from getting good healthy food; like hello have you ever thought of getting your child the good nutritious and minerals from eating vegetables and drink plain water??...it makes me even more mad when they think it's okay to feed MY CHILD to that unhealthy foods and drinks!! Kids easily attracted and addicted to those junk food. Plain simple.

It really is a selfish act and I REALLY cannot understand why they do what they do. Ignorant? Typical tak apa attitude? Saja-saja nak bagi rasa? Perhaps a common answer would be- I don't want my child to throw tantrum in front of other people and attracts the whole world attention.  Well then..DISCIPLINE THEM or better still, don't exposed them to those unhealthy food. And I'm NOT okay when other people trying to interfere when I discipline my own child.  And I rather let her throw her tantrum in front of other people just because I don't let her taste those junks foods. There is no need to offer my child with soft drinks, lollipops and sweets. But admit it, it really is that type of attitude that make them lax towards others.

Call me paranoid but hey, I don't exactly fancy entertaining junk food addicted toddler just because some inconsiderate asshole thought it was okay to let my child to taste a little bit of the soft drink/ junk food. I rather let my child cry of not having the lollipops at the mall than becoming a junk food addicted child.
