Mom bestie

Building a close relationship with my 5- year old daughter has been a journey. Don't get me wrong, from the moment I felt those first kicks in my belly I love her fiercely and when I held her in my arms for the very first time, I knew she will have my heart forever.

However, as a parent you quickly learn that while you technically do hold all the control in the parent-child relationship, you really have no control. If your 2-year-old decides it is her life mission to refuse to wear socks and shoes, chances are she will be going shoeless that day.

The terrible twos were beyond terrible and three was in a completely different realm. . . like who came up with 'terrible twos??' Two was NOTHING compared to how terrible age three was.err..and four.

Today, Aulia' and I have a very special bond. We've work through many things and I now better understand her personality and what she needs and she better understand how she should behave and how to communicate in a way that benefits us all. Growth is a miraculous thing. The age of five has been a game changer. Whereas a year ago it was at times like a war zone during the bedtime routine, she now sweetly ask me to carry her up to bed. Some nights I can't hold back my tears of happiness thinking just how far we've come in her five short years. She love me. She really, really, really loved me. And the love I fell in return is so heartbreaking...in the best way possible.

You are mom bestie, darling!
My sweet little Aulia' :)

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…
