My kind of labour day

Assalamualaikum wbt..

We all have those days..When you wake up wondering how on earth you're going to make it til the evening. As a working mom, those days may come often  but it's a bit more challenging when you know there is another little person depending on you for food, love and so much more. Well, I'm not gonna elaborate on the people at work. Working mom is no joke, I'm tired almost always and the insomnia that has managed to stick with me for the past week only adds to the fatigue. Last week was especially tiring. I woke up one morning in the hospital with Aulia' to an abnormally early riser after getting only two hours of sleep. Two hours. I seriously felt like my body was going to break into half. It was one of the very few times I wished I had a nanny or anyone who could help me out.

At the same time, I feel so blessed that I have a decent job & good pay. However, sometimes it's hard not to feel like I'm failing my family when I'm too tired to give them a fulfilling day. And it adds to my funk. That's why we've been given a holiday that we called a 'LABOUR DAY'. Yeayy!! More time to rest while hugging my kiddo!

But my husband just knew there was no way in the world I would be able to accomplish anything at home while feeling that way. So... instead of staying at home and sulking in my misery my husband decided that the best thing to do was to fake it. Fake a full nights rest and a peppy spirit. Fake the desire to be up and about and running from here to there after my oh so very active toddler. So fake it we did.

There was a new store that I would love to go. Some outdoor shopping fun. We went to MODVIER in Bangsar, KL. Ahhhh...*Rubbing palms* I finally got a chance to treat myself with lotsa stuff here :) :) They have many collections from famous local brands such as Eiliya, Minaz boutique, Dream Cloud and many more.

I managed to get myself some stuff. I bought a nice pink Bella Ammara tiara jubah, Rico Rinaldi Eiqal skirt, Farah Iskandar halfway Setade skirt and Rina Salleh metal belt. I was thinking to get more stuff especially when they have very nice staffs that are so friendly and hardworking.
The best part was that, I manage to met Sarah Shah Nor- the owner of Modvier. It was so nice to met her in-person. 
After we came back home for Aulia nap, I had one of my productive days. I felt great and Aulia' was the most pleasant little girl ever. Even while going from store to store in the morning. Faking it worked out well for us. Although. a full night rest wouldn't have been too shabby either! :)
Happy Labor Day!

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…
