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. 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!).
