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 :) :)

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!).
