Eid 2014 Celebration: Forgiving & family photo session

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Walillah hil Hamd!

Syukur Alhamdulillah! I managed to perform my Aidilfitri prayers with my husband's family at a Masjid nearby our homestay in Jitra, Kedah. We went back to Ipoh on Saturday (two days before Eid) and we drove to Jitra on the next day. My husband's Tok Wan is staying in Kodiang Kedah but we only managed to get the homestay in Jitra. The traffic was congested all the way from Kuala Lumpur when we went back to Ipoh but Alhamdulillah it was clear all the way to the north the day before Eid. I bet many people have arrived to their respective hometown on Saturday.

The masjid was quite packed and overflowing with worshipers but I still managed to make it to the inner hall with my SIL. The prayers went smoothly and I enjoyed my visit to the masjid on the morning of raya. Alhamdulillah!

After prayers we went back to our homestay and had breakfast together. It is a tradition that we seek for forgiveness from the elders before visiting our relatives. I assumed that this year Raya is a special one to my husband's family since their lil brother (not so little actually) who studied overseas came back home for good after graduating.

Everyone looking so dapper and stylish in their Baju Raya outfit..and this is our freestyle family pose of the year, Hehe!



The forgiving session...

We then headed to Tok Wan's house in Kodiang and visited my husband's side relatives until evening.

Guess who's the most excited one that get to collect her Duit Raya and being pampered by the unties, uncles and her grandparents...

I bet you can.
Well, this little makcik get to collect her duit raya more than we do when we were young. Mom is jelly melly!

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:)
