Sweet November and I'm 29.

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Today's my birthday. For some reason, in my mind I'm only turning 25. In reality...I'm 29. But this time, no jokes from me about how I'm 27 again..and definitely I'm freaking out that I'm turning the 'The three series' next year omg!

Really, I'm just so thankful for the wonderful year I had, hopeful for the year ahead, and very grateful for all of the sweet birthday wishes I've gotten from friends, family and even strangers. 


It's been a great day. I got some big birthday hugs (literally from mommy in her message) this morning then got decked out in my favourite color top and matching scarf, and headed to school, feeling pretty darn good...and suddenly the flower man came. 

 My husband secretly send the flower for my birthday knowing that we are 400km far from each other, he must have planned this earlier * sweetness overloaded*. He being the 'old school' kinda person-has no idea of expressing his love to people (especially me!) and never once send me flower since the day we got married. I only got flower twice from him and that was long before we got married. 1st and the 2nd was on my graduation day. 

My friend took me out for lunch treat and surprise me with cake. I ended the day with impromptu visit to the cinema with my 'new bff' at school. It's been a low-key birthday for sure, but that's just because it's on Saturday and I had to complete my conference paper, not because I want to forget about it..and yeah, I missed my baby so much!

As one of my favourite bloggers said " Here's what I think about birthdays: Celebrate them. Plain and simple. Whether you are two or forty-two.  It's not a promotion. It's not a graduation. It's the anniversary of freaking life. And the older I get, the more I'm not okay with hearing people downplay their big day like it's no big deal" Well, she's right, it is a big deal! Yeah, I may be older, but I'm also wiser and my life is more full from all the things I've experienced in my 29 years (not the least of which is the little girl I've acquired along the way). Hubby planned to have more soon! He just said it the night before my birthday. I'm speechless btw. We've been waited for three years for having another one. And now I'm in school again, having the mission of getting my PhD on time. Hopefully. Whatever comes from God, we are thankful for that. And we never stop praying for another miracle in our little family.

This is my sweet November and I always pray it will remain sweet like this forever.

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…
