mom’s day 2009

Happy Mothers day to all of you. For me, this year mother’s day was filled with medicine, cool-fever and soup. yes, the fever started a day after the little caliphs sports day. adoyai…teruk betul la. The kids also have slight flu & cough. Panas sangat kat luar.

Oh ya, hubby & the kids have something for me this moms day. The jade pendant that i’ve been eyeing for months. yeeha..thanks love!

As for myself, i gave my mom a wrist-watch. She’s planning to buy one, so that’s why i bought it for her. Love her sooo much & hope she likes it!

Back to reality, a lot of diseases outbreak for the past 1 month. So, what is your action? Me? Few times a day reminding the kids to wash their hands & foot especially when they are having their meals. And, from now on i will try my best to cook dinner for them. Safe & Save!

It’s just too sweet …

To be with the kids is fun!

On my way back after picking up the kids from school, we passed by a 2 1/2 storey semi-d

Abang : Mummy, ni rumah orang kaya ke?
Me : Ye abang..rumah ni expensive. Orang kaya je boleh beli.

Then we passed by a new 2-storey terrace housing area

Abang : Mummy ni rumah org kaya ke biasa-biasa?
Me : a’ah Biasa-Biasa macam kita jugak…

Abang : Mummy, nanti abang nak belajar pandai2, lepas tu keja pilot, lepas tu boleh jadi kaya ..
Me : Bagus bagus…
Abang : nanti abang bagi mummy duit abang
Me : Takpe la…abang simpan je la duit abang, tak payah bagi mummy..Tapi abang jangan lupa bwk mummy & ayah g holiday.
Adik : Nanti, adik keja jadi kaya…adik bagi mummy ngan ayah syiling banyak2 ok..
Me : Hmmmm…Ok adik..kekekeke ( ni mesti sbb pengaruh bila ayah balik keja, pasti bagi dia duit syiling masuk tabung dia)

Rayyan is becoming more talkative these days. Balik sekolah je, dia mesti cerita what’s happening @ school. Lemme share some of his stories which will make me smile @ work.

1. Mummy, tadi kan masa solat idlan (his brother) tido berdengkur…abang dengar adik krrrkrrrkkrr masa sujud.

2. Mummy, Harris (his bf) hari ni kan bawak spender ayah dia pegi school… This one ha, really made me pecah perut. I wonder how was his teacher reaction .. kakaka

3. Mummy,Haris kan bawak bekal g school. Dia tak bagi pun abang sikit. Tapi bekal abang dia nak, abang kasi je dia… Hari tu kan, abang makan 1 aje nugget sbb haris makan 2, zikri makan 1… kesian anak2 aku. 🙂

4. Kesimpulannye, my son dah boleh jadi reporter, don’t u think so?

I’ve been ignoring the blog for more than a week now. I’m sort of busy with life and family, and let’s don’t talk about work. Everything is so taxing nowadays.

We were at Kuala Tganu last weekend. It’s my 2nd time there, the first time was with my-ex-UPM gang during the trip to Kapas Island (after we completed our degree in 1999).

The journey took us about 8 hours including a short stop in Kuantan and Kemaman. The kids were so restless, excited to reach the place. We stayed along Pantai Batu Burok (weird name, but the place is nice). The kids really enjoyed the stay as the room we stayed is pool-view and it’s 3 minutes walk to the kids park. Location is great as hubby got to settle his work, we could always go wherever we wished.

We went to the famous Pasar Payang & Masjid Kristal, shopped for few pieces of batik silk as they were soooo beautiful, went for a free town bus ride to muzium islam and so much more…Belief it or not, i have’nt got a chance for nasi dagang! But of course i had a lot of keropok lekor & ais krim goreng.

Not to forget, we have a new family member in Hj. Mohshir family. Afiqah Sofeea Aliza was born on 10th February 09 at Ampang Puteri Medical Center weighted 3.15kg . Congratulation Bro & Sis. The boys commented ” mummy, kenapa kakak sara boleh ada baby tp abang tak boleh ada baby? abang nak baby girl” while their hands menggeletek kaki & tangan baby dgn geramnye…. hahaha..not now boys, mummy can only take care of u both as at now. Penat pun tak habis lagi tau!

I will add photo later today ya.

Travelling Month

December 08 has been declared as “Bulan Travelling setiap minggu” for family en. PubLo. Mana taknye, lepas habis exam comprehensive we’d been to Awana, Genting. After Genting, kami sekeluarga ke Parit Buntar, Alor Star, Penang, Kuala Kangsar (yeah..ni kampungku ok) & Langkap (of course kena singgah rumah MIL yer..kalau tak nanti dikatakan …. ). Ingatkan minggu ni nak rest pulak, tup tup hubby kata let’s go to PD. Hmmm…nak tak nak ikut kan je la.

Of course time tu hotel full-house sbb school holiday & christmas eve, but itu la padahnye kalau last minute plan. Kalau yg ada pun hotel + surcharge harga yg melampau ada la…which is for me it’s nonsense sbbnye bukan resort ada star pun blh letak harga mcm tu kat PD time2 ni. Lagipun, we all nak stay just 1 night & the kids needs beach+pool while kitorg pulak hunting for sea-food.

So, last sekali we all settle kat Kaynes Resort dan bilik yg ada cuma standard room twin-sharing. Actually we all dah pernah stay kat sini masa Family day family sebelah my father last year. So, we all tau la that the room is quite big la & tempat ni mmg sesuai utk the 2 kids yg gila beach ( but tau la kan pd beach bukannye best pun..) & gile swimming pool ni.

This is Kaynes Resort

Just in-front of the beach with quite large swimming pool

Bila lepas check-in, hubby pun sibuk la g keja..tinggal la me,bibik & the kids. baru nak terlelap, diorg dah jerit…nak g beach! nak g beach!..ahhh…terus bwk beach mat & segala2 equipments diorg utk main pasir, kitorg terus g lepak kat beach…lepas g beach, g pool pulak..lepas dah siap swimming & jacuzzi, pegi balik beach…then masuk balik pool…aktiviti tu berterusan dari pukul 3.30 – 7.30 ptg…bayangkan betapa anak2ku itu penggila beach & pool yer..

p1020639

Rayyan & bibik @ the beach

Malamnye, we all went for seafood hunting kat pasir panjang (sempadan melaka dah)..nyum nyum…sedapnye makan tepi jeti. Budak2 & bibik dah zZZzzz selepas hanya 5 minit kereta bergerak nak g jalan2 carik makan. bila makanan dah siap, they all pun makan macam nak tak nak je..but habis jugak la..

Esoknye, pagi2 lepas breakfast dah g beach lagi! adoi…beach & pool session dr pukul 8 pagi hingga pukul 11.15 pagi. lepas dah mandi semua, kitorg order je makan lunch kat bilik je sbb hubby blom balik from jumpa client dia..then after checkout budak2 dah bising nak naik horse..so, dptla diorg naik horse.

Rayyan dan hobinye

Hari ni pulak Christmas..pagi kitorg mengemas rumah, petang lari gi Ikea (lagi!)..esok ingat nak bawak bibik g shopping, rupanya kena balik Langkap! sbb my FIL admitted kat Hospital Teluk Intan sbb bengkak usus (isit dangerous? ada ke ubat tradisional?) ..hopefully dia cepat recover.Enough la dengan travelling ni en. PubLo ku, minggu depan dah nak start keja..what shall i say? horay ke ayoyoyo???

AidilAdha with the kids

This year, we purposely planned to spend time with the kids. Maklumlah..last week, hubby was away for a week in Pahang while myself busy with the exam thing. So the kids boring je @ home with bibik. The “bestest” thing they had pun just mcD from the new outlet in-front of my house (” ada mcD 24hrs baru bukak sebelah kompleks pkns depan ni…sungguh merbahaya!”).

Ok, what we did last weekend?

Saturday —

After hubby went for her weekend routine, he brought us for early dinner in Chilis KLCC.

After dinner, we rushed to Istana Budaya to watch Sinbad. Rayyan enjoyed the show while Idlan, keresahan yg sungguh ketara sbb dia dah penat..sbb daytime, I brought them to watch Kungfu Panda in Person @ Alamanda.

On Sunday–

me & hubby went back to gombak after some cleaning @ home. Bila dah pass budak2 & bibik @ my mom hse, we sneaked out to IKEA. Ramai orang..but we managed to buy what we need…maklumlah, nak re-organize the house to be more praktikal sbb me dah nak jadi maid in 1 mth time..

On Monday aka AidilAdha —

hujan hujan….tak sempat pun nak g sembahyang raya..lambat bangun huhuhu…After the kids went to the surau menonton aktiviti sembelih lembu, we went to my friend house in Subang Bistari. She cooked nasi kuning Sandakan…sedap!!

From Subang Bistari, then we started our mini-holiday. Trip to genting in 2008! Nasib baik stay kat awana, risau gak musim2 tanah runtuh ni kan…After checked-in we took the free shuttle to Genting Skyway. Since outside hujan, kabus..sejuk..so, the kids dpt la main kat First World Indoor Park. Yang tak tahan tu nak queue…pergh..long queue. After they all puas hati & penat, we went back & reached Awana @ 11 pm.

We woke up early the next morning, went for the buffet breakfast where I enjoyed my food so much..hehe.. Then we jumped into the swimming pool..huha..boleh tak diorg pasang the hot water tu slow je..menggigil ..after about 1/2 hour, baru la diorg bukak kuat skit..best je dpt rendam2 dalam jacuzzi.. ;O After swimming, we all balik bilik & tido tido tunggu masa check-out…Habis sudah cuti2 AidilAdha kami

…. Next week, cuti2 utara pula.. 😉

Negeri Di Bawah Bayu …

I am so happy today.

I managed to purchased the flight tickets to Kota Kinabalu July next year. Mmg our plan to go back to KK utk melihat semula tempat2 lama..for me masa sekolah2 dulu, as for hubby masa honeymoon dulu…

The AA promo is really a great deal. Only RM248 for 4 of us. Best kan.

Gotta inform my sabahans friends about the news…Wish I can meet them.

Too much things in my plan, Mt. Kinabalu, Poring, Nexus, Gayana ecoresort, pasar ikan, pasar filipin … uhuh…tak sabar

Anybody wanna tag along? Grab your ticket..quick!

Final Decision

scary plak bila i type that title. But actually it’s true, few weeks back my bibik has started “curik-curik ayam buat kerja”. So, there’s a signal to me that something is not right. I asked her what happen, she’s sick or what. Ya ya…she’s homesick. Then She asked if she can return home earlier than what she supposed to. I told her I will discussed with hubby first.

You know what hubby said ” Yes. Bulan depan balik”. Me like ” Ha? cannot! matai la den…”But then discussion went on further. Think about pros and cons and other things, we decided to send her back 2nd week of January. But when we informed her, then she requested to stay till Rayyan 5th Birthday (19/01)..Hmm..means, nanti ada double celebration la kan..Happy Birthday Abang and Bye Bye Bibik…Ok gak. So will need to hunt for her flight tickets..no problem punya..

So 2009 is coming. Totally new year for me. As a wife, Full-time mother and Full-time worker … pergh. berat gak kan. Tapi bila buat the timetable sbb nak divide the chores with hubby..rasa mcm ok plak. Tp pasti ada slack la kan..(tp ada bibik pun sama gak ada slacknye kan).

The Kids? they will stay in TLC after school (day care + enrichment class). We felt that is ok sbb

  1. Yang jaga semua teacher2 TLC jugak..so, means takde problem for Rayyan. Hopefully Idlan too.
  2. Tak payah risau2 pasal the transportation and so on.
  3. The kids will be more independent (MY wish)
  4. I can start my slimming session for free (ahaks..kena buat kerja rumah)

Although bibik is going back end of January, we’ll start sending the kids whole day at TLC early January. So bibik will spend her time gosok all the baju kerja (for 2/3 months confirm ada..) , Kemas2 all my house (all the rooms especially her room) and also start packing up. Kena keep my house thing simple aje supaya senang when I’m handling it alone. All unwanted things will be taken out from this house (bagi aja la sapa2…tak kuasa dah nak menyimpan brg2).

Weekdays mcm ok..But weekend mcm out sikit. Sbb apa? Hubby confirm akan busy di park. So I need to train the kids supaya blh tolong when it comes to major kemas rumah on weekends. Ok la jugak rasanya. Rayyan dan 5 YO, Idlan turning 4.

So how long tak ada maid ni? see la.. Try 1 year, But actually aimed for 2 years. Ngam2 ada baby (kalau ada la kan)..then only I ‘ll need hubby to get another one for me. Geram gak bila mula2 hubby kata, so takde maid nanti, kalau ada baby kita hantar balik kampung. Hei, baik tak yah beranak kalau senang2 je nak pass anak balik kampung kan…Get me a new maid or senang cerita, we’ll think about that when the time comes.

==Y E A Y…….. PHUKET WILL BE OUR LAST JUSTTHE2OFUS TRIP FOR NOW ….hehehe==

Wawa & Mona : Finally aku akan join kelab korg (tiada maid beranak 2)..tips please!

Meniti Hari Tanpa Hubby

Rayyan is now having a right-ear-infection. It’s just too bad to see him suffering from the pain. Kesian, sampai fever strike him. For the past 4 days, we had been visiting Az-zahrah everyday. And this evening  is Yesterday was the appointment with ENT Specialist. Hopefully everything will be ok.

Hmm..what i can recall from the visit to the ENT?

— His ear was flushed…semua kotoran degil keluar..banyak.

— We all view his “saluran telinga” kat tv… erk.siap bulu2 halus pun nampak

— No swimming for 3 weeks

— Next visit will be on Monday.

— hmmm..mummy kata doctor tu hensem la..muahahaa…

**************************

Finally yesterday the PeterPan complete their work in my house. So, no more tiring days waiting for them. Nak tido susah, nak terlentang pun susah…seksa

I’d celebrated it with Ana, my current partner in crime (partner yg lalu dah jadi budak baik). Ended up in Subang Parade for lunch and shopping. Looking for nice baju for cousin (hubby) wedding but tak jumpa yg within budget (semua over the budget..subang parade la katakan). But I bought back something…will paste the photo later

picture302

comel x? terpedaya bila termasuk kedai berjenama yg menjual byk kasut plastik ini..but betul la, best pulak..

*****************************

Tomorrow  Today, hubby will be back. Yeay!! Need to pick him up at KL Sentral sbb after that nak pegi dating tengok Quantum of Solace. Dari myself drive down to KLIA, better drive to KL kan..blh cilok2 g tempat lain..;)

I’m bored..though I have a lot to read..keke

Serious, takde kelas = takde semangat nak study. demn kan..Last week & this 2 days my weekdays abis dengan menjaga kontraktor indo aka ex-member peterpan nih..hehe..

So, what I did now is more to websurfing, online shopping ke online window shopping? carik resepi. Mcm biasa..desert yg dirasakan sedap dan mampu untuk ku buat. Betul. I like to cook. Tp I limit my time to the max of  45minutes at the kitchen setiap kali masak. Kenapa? Sbb kalau lebih 45 minit tu, I tgh continues with eating. kekeke

Di kala ini jugak, my garden dah ada rumput yg menghijau bersama 3 batang pokok (bunga?). Dah lama dreamt of a mini garden, tp everytime hubby tried to tanam rumput (mutiara la..golf la.) semuanya fail.This one pun berjaya ditanam dan menghijau sbb panggil cina tanamkan..hahaha..mengelat. So, sekrg my evening time dipenuhi dengan aktiviti gardening…new thing, new thing…

My house? sama aja..takde perubahan. Mcmmana kami masuk, minor2 reno..mcm itu la sampai hari ini. Cuma daily cleaning and maintenance la..kalau tak serupa hidup dlm sarang labah2 plak. But bila pegi Macy Warehse sale 2 minggu lepas, mmg tempting tau tengok sofa, bar stool ..but sabar sabar…org tak banyak mana pun dlm rumah ni nak duduk..gatalz je lebih..

My Kids? Rayyan dah nak cuti sekolah. next year Idlan will join his abang. Finally decided to continue kat TLC though ada byk dugaan sebelum nak decide tu (transport la mainly). Dah survey this area punya tadika..hmm..no comment! But seriously, byk sgt kriteria kot yg telah ditetapkan oleh pihak2 tertentu dlm rumah ni..hehehe..

Hubby? Ini boss banyak bz. Tak nak comment la nanti allowance kena cut.

Bibik? Sekarang dia dah pandai masak..habis semua resepi my mom and myself ada copy kat buku pink (buku resepi dia). Padan la mem makin hari makin tem***.

I want to jot this down

When I graduated in 1999, I made a promised to myself. I wanted to do my second degree before reaching 30. As I knew that I’m bonded with my company for the good 6 years, I was hoping that the company will sponsor me for it. Hubby kept on reminding me to further my studies, so as my mom & dad. But I always told them…tunggu dulu la ye.

Well time flies so fast that I need to struggle with my married life. And then my responsibilities doubled when I was gifted with the two adorable kids. The days fly even faster.

End of 2006 also (that time tina was off to further her study), I suddenly realized that oh no..I’m reaching 30 in just a few months time, and I had owed myself something. Yes, It’s Master degree. I told hubby & my parents about it. And they supported me. Alhamdulillah. Feeling that the kids were big enough to play together and with lots of hopes that they will understand, I’d did my own research on the available courses. I made up my mind and applied for a course in Graduate School of Management of UPM.

GSM accepted my application. And I had prepared enough saving for the fees coz I knew I’ll not be extending my bond with the company. During that time, I was having a tough time at work. Not just work but the environment made me even worst. Struggling with the project, vendor and also all of the reports just made me felt so damn terrible. Back from work I had to rush to school. And when I got home @ 10.30-11.00pm, the kids were still awoke waiting for me to layan them…Argh…Tiring, Tension and kesian, and all sort of feelings..

It became worst when on weekend, hubby got to handle his business at the park while I need to complete the assignments/works (either at home / school / office). The kids were looking so dull, they had to stay at home and hoping that somebody will bring them to anywhere…I was so sad to see them in that condition, mcm anak takde bapak&mak, just bibik around to layan them..

One night when I was about to sleep after a tiring day (work& school), hubby whispered to me.. “ mummy, can you just stop working for a while? Apply for leave” And I replied, I want to try first..I’d promised my Mr.FBI (My SM) that I’ll try to handle it. He said, “Pls decide on the priority..work, family, study…I can support & the family insyaallah…but of course tak la dpt nak mewah2 sgt..If u agree, applied for leave ya..”

That night, I really can’t sleep. I’m thinking about my job. Then My family.Then my Study. I was pinned in between…to decide for the better.I woke up early and rushed to work. When I’m at work, I had no time to think about that…But few days after, I had the urged to submit the letter to apply for No-Pay-Study-Leave for a good 1 year 3 months. And I’m so thankful to Allah, as it went of smoothly…I dunno…How I did it..I became a full-time student and a at-home mother within 3 weeks time. Alhamdulillah.

And now, I had done with all the lectures, assignments and etc. Just another exam in the month of December. I really appreciate all the support from hubby, family and friends. At first I don’t felt too secure. I didn’t really know what to expect. And at times, I did expect the worst. But Allah is always there..Giving us light…Alhamdulillah

But I knew hubby had done too much…It’s not easy to satisfy me. But he did it…I got everything from him …Lots of love, Lots of vacations (local and overseas as of Asia la kan..) , shopping expenses and etc. I know I can’t afford to pay him the amount of $$$ he spent, just that I can only afford to give him more love, attention and care. I dream of a second degree while he dream of a business. And we tried our very best to support each other…Dear, I love you soooo….Let’s have fun @ Phuket…Just the two of Us…Leaving the kids at home…hehehee….

Hubby who managed to turn hobby into $$$..Luv ya!

Us on our trip to Phuket last May..yeh yeh..going again in Nov!
