52th Merdeka!

This coming Monday we would be celebrating our country's 52th year of independence. So wishing you all...SELAMAT MENYAMBUT HARI KEMERDEKAAN!

Which would also means.................PUBLIC HOLIDAY! Double Yeay!! Insya-Allah we'll be heading back to Seremban. Little Sis is coming back for the weekend. Masa untuk kerahan tenaga! Hahahaha..

What I miss most this time around, is the late Yasmin Ahmad commercial. So far none of the latest commercial really caught my attention. My best pick so far was the one with Tan Hong Ming...

Alrighty, I've got 'special' project for this raya. Should I reveal? Not yet.

My First Ever Food Entry!

Sempena Bulan Ramadan yg mulia, this Mummy mmg rajin masak. Simple-simple dish aje pun. Just enough for two adults and si bam-bam Nazif Irfan.

This is the lauk on Tuesday. Ayam masak merah, Sawi with Egg Tofu( merangkap lauk Nazif), fried tenggiri and samosa.

But then, its not an easy task! Knowing that I've got one assistant tak bertauliah. At one time he would be playing with his Daddy and being angelic. At one split second, he turned into a little monster, clinging at my feet or demand me to carry him! Or he would be 'happily' inspecting every nooks and corners at the kitchen, which includes the dustbin! Hai la anak..

Ni plak on Wednesday, black pepper daging, asparagus and carrot and sardine roll.


Today? I dunno what to cook.

Personal Shopper

Last weekend, we went to pick up our baju rayas at the Tailor in Medan Mara. While Mummy and Tok Mama were doing a little bit of window shopping at Ruang Legar, this was what my boy doing, running around with the baju raya!

Catch me if you can!


Take five kejap!

Mana nak dpt anak baik camni???

My Story of Getting Pregnant - Part VII

It seems that I have been abandoning the installment of my getting pregnant series, hihihi..

Back to the day that I was being operated. If I was not mistaken the date was on 19 November 2006 which was Monday. So on Sunday, Me and hubby admitted ourselves to Pantai Hospital Bangsar. I was told to start fasting from 11 pm onwards.

In the morning before the operation, I was given a tablet to clear up my bowels..adeh I totally forgot the name. And the day before, a nurse came to 'clear' up the 'down area'..Gosh I was totally embarrassed!! I never expected there's another tip, if you gotta admit yourself to the hospital on such cases, or even before going into labor, you should clear up those area yourselves...And I did before I went into labor last time..well that's another story altogether.

Before they sent me down to the OT I was given a jab to make me sort of all that I remembered was me being transferred from one bed to another..I can't count how many. But I did remember being so cold when they placed me on operation table. And then just as the anesthetic mask was placed, I was ZZZZ...

I woke up to sound of my name..and zap my stomach felt the pain! Gosh it was really really felt like somebody has just put knife in it (of course la kan..) . After sometime I was brought back to my room. The day passed with me still being drowsy from the anesthetic bius. I did not eat the whole day and cause my stomach filled with wind..a simple sip of water also made me vomit and it was very painful..just imagine lah..

Alhamdulilah the next day I was able to wake up and after almost two days of not eating, I was eating like a cow..I was given a month of MC..

So? What did the doctor do?

He removed my cyst, repaired my uterus position, cleaned up my fallopian tube from excess fat and lastly sort of cleaned up my uterus by doing D&C.

Welcome Ya Ramadhan Al-Mubarak!

Tomorrow Muslim in Malaysia will begin their fasting month.

Alhamdulilah, blessed to HIM for giving me the opportunity to be able to experience another year Ramadan. Last year I had a baby in tow and this year this baby had already grown into a toddler. Aaaa..time truly flies.

Wishing all my friends Selamat Menyambut Ramadan. May our ibadah this year would be better than last years.

*I really hope I could shed some more kilos this year..

Child’s Education, which way to go?

A chit-chatting during lunch time with some colleagues has brought me thinking about this issue.

“Pagi tadi aku telepon cikgu sekolah anak aku, tanya dia apesal byk sgt homework?”

His child is four years old and went to SR school.

“Kita dulu tadika mana ada homework-homework nih. Byk main-main aje”.

“Anak aku masa awal darjah satu kata mende ni dia dah belajar kat tadika.”

So mothers, what do you think?

I know it’s a hot topic right now. Especially we mothers are now more exposed to various child’s rising method if compared to our ancestors. We want our child to be so-called genius, brilliant and maybe can read as early as two years old. So we exposed our child to flash cards, learning toys, educational DVDs and much other stimulation.

And we found that many child centers and pre-school that promote different methods like Montessori, Shicida, Kumon, to named a few. And the fees for this type of school of course; it’s quite mind-blowing. They even had tests. And pre-school nowadays even have parents teachers day where report card were given.

But come seven years old and these children attend the public school. Here, mostly they will go through again some of the things that they already learned in their pre-school. Will their ‘geniuses’ can grow more or will they shrink? I know children get easily bored and this may cause them to not pay attention in the class.

What if my seven year old son who used to love school hates it now?

What if my seven year old son who used to be brilliant in pre-school now has bad results in his exam?

The many ifs.

And then come the many Should I do this? Or Should I do that?

'Take my hand and show me the right way, Mommy'

Ahhh..the joy of motherhood. I should have expected that. :)

Gugu Gaga..

What happens when you saw extra RM in your account?

As usual, hati ni meronta2 nak shopping, and you have such a long list in your mind.

Niat baik..
Should I buy some books?
Should I change my laptop? ( Ni kes lama tak beli2 lagi)..

I think I want to buy expensive toys utk Nazif..
I think I want that rm 300 shoes..(mahal weiii..)

And suddenly..
Oh My perfume is nearly zero..
Oh Nak kena bayar this cukai..
Oh I have to pay for raya clothes, cookies etc..etc..

In the end, the money gone with the wind...

Have you ever found yourself in this situation?

Our Weekend...with UCU

Was spent at JB. Went for little Sis Convocation.

At first we were a bit reluctant to attend, with all the H1NI thing-y and plus we had little children that tagged along too..but then when we think back..kesian la plak kan. And so off we went but with a strategy of course!

We only met at the parking lot and straight away to shoot picture at photo Pesta2 whatsoever, no mingling with unnecessary crowd. Only my parents were at the Grand Hall and they were provided with mask. I was armed with instant sanitizer, wet tissues and of course medicine on stand by.

Two sisters with 'Gurdix' pose..hehehe..once in a blue moon berposing

All of your niece and nephews wishes you CONGRATULATIONS UCU!!

Other than that, we just spent at the hotel room. So it was sorta short vacation for us.

14 Months Young

Nazif is 14 months today!

My, my my.. my baby has grown up so much:

  • Eating time with him is now quite a challenge. In a good way, he started to eat on his own. He likes to use his hand to squash his food..sometimes he even wanted to feed me instead of Mummy feeding him. The outcome? Its a MESS!
  • Very good in 'house-keeping'. Everything in a container will be gracefully poured by him!
  • Knows his tummy and tongue! When we said Mana perut? He will 'selak' his clothes and show his tummy!
  • Oh, my son is quite vain I tell you! When he sees himself in the mirror he will gaze and smile to himself..hahaha..
  • He understood some instructions too.. like pass Mummy the book, come to Mummy, go and kiss Daddy..
  • More vocabulary like phissss for fish, op jatuh, tatak for kakak..
  • Oh..what else? He recognize a round shape so far, so that will be the first block he'll took when playing with shape sorter.
  • He is so into books! Yeay..He would pick up his book, bring to me or his daddy and asked us to read to him.

Learning through Singing

My son loves me singing..hehehe of course la kan. And we know that we can easily remembered song's lyrics if compared to remembering or understanding say for example Periodic Table of Elements. Or if Malaysian students refer to as Jadual Berkala..(pergghh bagi cth baik punya)..

So as usual this morning, instead of just pointing and telling Nazif to trees, cats and birds; this song suddenly popped in my mind..

Tanya sama pokok apa sebab goyang,
Nanti jawab pokok angin yang goncang,
Tanya sama angin apa sebab goncang,
Nanti jawab angin tanyalah awan.

Awan nanti kata aku kandung air,
Sampai tempat sejuk aku pun cair,
Tengok dalam air nampak bayang-bayang,
Campak satu batu bayang pun hilang.

Well as usual, this Mommy pun nyanyi la..siap dgn action lagi..through this song my baby can learn why tree moves, what makes it move and so on..

Nazif was so excited!

Yeay..I Rock!..Hahaha..Masuk lift tekan sendiri.

This is so alarming..

So its confirmed, I was on PMS on my last post. I've got visit from Miss Flo ..

Aaahh..the number of death toll for H1N1 was alarming..I'm kinda paranoid too..and since yesterday Nazif was coughing..I've got to see the doctor today..

But the problem is..the clinic now was so packed to the brimmed..kalo dr luar nmpk mcm funfair..and the waiting list was like forever! The strategy?

1. Daddy registered, Mummy and Nazif remains in the car.
2. Dah dpt nombor, go back home..have our dinner, change clothes..yada..yada..
3. Let's say after two hours had passed, then go to the clinic, hopefully our turn dah nak dkt.

Luckily the clinic was near to our home..

Being in the clinic itself was spooky..from being healthy pun boleh rasa sakit..And now I carried this everywhere..

To put mask on my boy? It would covered his whole face plak..any other way to cover his mouth and nose other than using hanky or tissue?

My Story of Getting Pregnant - Part VI

Still at my installation of getting pregnant journey..dah macam Star Wars punya installation hehe..Well now onto my 6th part.

So, we stopped seeing the specialist for a while and tried our luck with alternative methods. And we also kept our time busy by planning for our new home.

We moved into our new pad around August 2006.

Before that around June, I’ve met with my cousin who had similar experience like we do, but now she’s pregnant with her second child. She had treatment with the infamous Doctor H.A. and was immediately pregnant after a month she went for operation. She had the same condition like me –Retroverted uterus..and Alhamdulillah she had successfully conceived. Based on that, I finally mentally prepared myself to meet the doctor..A MAN.

So, after raya in 2006 we set an appointment to consult the doctor. First time upon seeing him, we truly felt comfortable. He's just like atuk2 type, very soft spoken and professional. During the check up which was the V-J-J scanning..not the ultrasound yer..there's always a female nurse that accompanied him, and my source of strength...hehe..siap pegang tangan nurse tuh..again the tip..please relax yourself.

And upon checking my condition, he suggested for an operation to be carried out. That’s because with the condition that I am in, I’m prone to develop endometriosis and it looked like it started to build up already. So, before it got worst, we better prevent it! And with that we sat and discuss for the date immediately.

The date for the operation was set two weeks from the day that we met. No delay delaying..

Op Jatuh!

That's what my little boy would say every time he tripped, or something falls!

Ah sungguh comel lagi cute!..hahaha..its normal aight for mothers to feel this way..alangkan other childrens buat pun comel , what more if its your own flesh and blood..

Gosh..I can't believe its Friday..yeay!!

For this weekend I'll be having some ME time at last! After much postponed here and tomorrow I'll be having some relaxing facial treatment with an extra body treatment as the birthday gift from the SS. So..Daddy enjoy your daddy-son day tomorrow,eh! Mummy will off to lala land for a few hours!

Remember Me This Way..

This song brought back the memory of my final year in secondary school. This song was famously dedicated among friends that were about to leave the school at that time. So it was very fehlong2 one at that time...hahaha..

Oh our batch that we called ourselves G78 even had our own song..mana eh lyrics tu..later2 I 'll search for it..

I heard this song when I went for breakfast at one of the kopitiam near to my house last week..

Jordan Hill - Remember Me This Way

Every now and then
We find a special friend
Who never lets us down
Who understands it all
Reaches out each time you fall
You're the best friend that I've found
I know you can't stay
A part of you will never ever go away
Your heart will stay

* I'll make a wish for you
And hope it will come true
That life would just be kind
To such a gentle mind
If you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way
Remember me this way
Hmm……….. this way

I don't need eyes to see
The love you bring to me
No matter where I go
And I know that you'll be there
Forever more apart of time, you're everywhere
I'll always cares
(Repeat *)

And I'll be right behind your shoulder watching you
I'll be standing by your side and all you do
And I won't ever leave
As long as you believe
You just believe
(Repeat *)
Nak tau lagu cemana? En Google kan ada!

The Clown of Mummy's heart

Look at my little boy! Getting all playful and active...mmg nak tergelak dibuatnya..

The weekend was spent with lots of activities. It started in Friday ( its my day!), where I got to spend the whole day with my dear hubby..

On Saturday, we did the house-cleaning session..and just loiter around the house.

On Sunday, went for shopping at Ikea. Need to shop for storage to cater for this boy's toys yg dah overflow in the basket. And also shopped for storage rack to organize the store room..One thing for sure, we CANNOT bring Nazif anymore for this kind of shopping trip! Its tiring when Nazif refused to sit in his stroller and refused to be held. Instead he wanted to run and walk freely on his own!! Penat okeh! Maybe sooner or later I had to opt for those kind of restraining chain..huhu..Luckily we had extra pair of hands that day when my sis-in-law tagged along..dapatle mummy and daddy pilih2 barang..
