Hello, Beach!

Assalamualaikum wbt..

When we were down at the beach last weekend, we had an amazing day, it just wasn't enough time. I told hubby that next year, we should go down for a long weekend and spend 3 full days out on the beach instead of just one (or maybe half!). He totally shocked me by suggesting that we should plan to come down in July when we had Raya holiday, which I hadn't even considered. This is a big deal coming from someone who never bring me for a beach holiday . 

Hello, BEACH!!
Honestly, we have been so incredibly lucky with amazing beach trips- great weather, home cooked foods, tidal pools that are perfect for the kid, lots of fun with the in-laws, and even some relaxing sun tanning with my MIL, heehaa! Not to mention, photos out the wazoo.
 
 

Aulia' spent several hours in the water and had her fair share of chattering teeth and blue lips after playing in the water for a while. She enjoyed playing with the sand with her aunt and uncle. I have to beg her to sit still for a picture. I told her that one day she'll be glad I made her do it so she'll have pictures to remember me, and know that I was actually a part of all of these fabulous memories she's making.

Short vacation can be tough because you really have time to settle and soak in all the fun, and it's time to leave. But the fact it was 33 degree and hot weather in the afternoon made the goodbye a little easier. But on top of all, we had such an amazing time that I think we're even planning to do another trip in July when we have Raya holiday and make it an extra long weekend. Can't wait! But until then, bye beach!


(And thanks for the shells..and a car full of sand.)

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:)
