My 2014 New Year Resolution

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last year I had my New Year Resolution and I complete almost everything. Here's the review of it.

And here are my 2014 New Year Resolutions! As always, I feel like most of them are achievable! As I said before, this year is more about making me a better mom, wife and daughter.

My 2014 Resolution

1. Get a Canon for myself 
Well, I really need a new camera and take more pictures. 

2. Friday family movie night!
We've been doing this since last few months and we hope we can continue to do it this year. I reminding myself to have Friday family movie night every time so that I didn't drag myself too much on works. 

3. Get involve with my extended family activities
I'm glad that last month my extended families get together for a family day. Most of them are now getting interested to involve with more activities in future. We have set up a group/a forum for discussion and get in touch with each others.

4. Take more pictures
I don't want to miss any moments with my love one. So I need to take up more photos and organize them.

5. Save more money 
In order for me to get a healthy BIG account, I need to save up more than last year. Well, I know there's a lot more coming up ahead, i.e. buying a house, emergencies, life insurance, tolls spikes, yada yada... I can make a long list over here!

6. Take a family vacation
Despite the cost of almost everything increases now, me and my family still need a family vacation. Yes, we work hard. But we play hard too! I planned to visit at least 3 new places this year :)

7. Cook more often
I am obsessed with cooking shows, even though they make everything look so easy when it isn't. So I need to cook more often and try out their recipes or I just need to steal my mom's cook book. 

8. Take Aulia' to zoo
I'm worried that my 3 y/o daughter won't recognized lion! She watched too much cartoons. It's time for her to see those animals in action! haha. 

Also, the joy of having a 3 year old is that they can communicate with you! I asked Aulia' what she wanted to do this year and she gave me a list. All of these are her ideas and I love them all!

Aulia's 2014.

1. Play at the park 

2. Read more books

3. Sing more songs

4. Help Ibu with laundry

5. Art Projects

6. Water Park

7. Grow up (she said it, should be an easy one!)

Do you have any New Year Resolutions? We do them since last year and I am excited to join Aulia' in the fun this year. I will try to be better about doing blog posts this year. Happy New Year everyone!

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…

Preggy Diaries: 2nd Trimester

I am overwhelmed with the people who congratulated us ❤❤

Okay just a short story about our 5 months ultrasound check up. My first "legit" ultrasound was carried out by our gynae in KPJ Ipoh, Dr. Zamzida and nothing seeing our baby's heartbeat the first time felt surreal. It's something like I have been very blessed to have this munch. Dr. Zamzida was very happy we finally succeed to naturally conceived and she pray the best for our journey and the baby. Unfortunately we won't be able to do our monthly check up with her because it would be too far for us to go all the way to and fro Ipoh every month. My husband already decided on where to deliver the baby and whom will be my gynae throughout our 10 months journey. He seems very committed for baby no. 2 😊

We started our monthly maternity check up at 12 weeks with Dr. Zunita at Tunku Azizah Maternity Home, and this is our ultrasound results for 20 weeks check up. Alhamdulillah, the baby heart beat is perfectly nor…
