Counting days

Bibik will be leaving soon this coming CNY. There will no longer mem & tuan in the house. 😉 We’d booked our chores. Masing2 need to contribute their time & energy. No more bibik, bibik & bibik.

Lucky that my office is now nearby. I can now go out @ 7.30 and reach office @ 7.50. Terrible traffic when i pass through kg.sg.ramal.dalam. Worst when it’s 15 mins to 8.
Today, my car battery decided to kong @ CoIT parking lot. Actually, i didn’t switched off the lights (on my way back from meeting @ Uniten Library). Planned to go out for lunch with my x-coursemate, then only i realised it’s KONG. What a day……

Double Triple Happiness

Happy No 1
I received an e-mail from GSM last friday, I’d passed all the Comprehensive Exam papers. I’ve finally achieved it Alhamdulillah.

Happy No.2
I’ll start working in a corporate project tomorrow (but maybe next monday la kan sbb nak settle things kat sini dulu). And the good thing is it’s located @ College of IT, Uniten (within my neigbourhood).My wish come true. Alhamdulillah.

Happy No.3
With the new CA6 (cerita ni actually sometimes end of last year..but i was not around kan), there will be some adjustment in salary, not much la kan.But I have extras in pay and I don’t have to pay for the toll & petrol to go to work. Ample parking some more.. If i need to go to Menara TM, i can claim from the Company. Alhamdulillah.

Yeeha!!! I’m so happy now. I have 2 hours extra a day (pegi-balik to TM will take me average 1 hr each way). a week I’ll have 10 hours more.  Precious!Lot’s of things i can do when my office is only 10 mins drive. Syukur syukur..

He refused …

“Mummy, blh tak abg nak school 3 days je..lepas tu holiday 2, then school 3?” That’s Rayyan last night. I said, ” Tak boleh, sbb mummy & ayah work 5, abang & adik pun school 5. Lepas tu kita holiday 2 sama-sama”. He nodded.

This morning,hubby called after sending them to school. Rayyan cried. He want to go back afternoon. Tak nak balik petang. Adeh… His brother relak je. Idlan answered when hubby asked why his brother acted this way ” Tak tau la…nak naik ferry pun dah naik semlm. Hari ni nak cry jugak”. Idlan happy je to be back in school after the weekend.

Seriously, last weekend i felt that Idlan behave positively. Dah kurang dah hypernya. Nak bawak jalan pun senang…No more tantrums @ shopping mall. If i said don’t do that, he’ll adhere to it. But Rayyan was totally opposite. I need to check what makes he changed a lot. Maybe the separation anxiety after holiday ke or is it something wrong with the teacher (sbb dia dah kena tukar kelas 5 years old). But according to internet, there is 1 over 4 kids refuse to go to school at the age of 5-6 & 11-12. Hmm..yg sorg tu la anakku. For Idlan, dia good boy.. Peace Idlan!

More about the kids

I picked the kids in the evening on their 2nd day. It was raining heavily but i managed to be @ TLC on time (5 minutes to 6). There were still many kids at school (maybe sbb flash flood everywhere kan on Tuesday). Rayyan first saw me, Idlan was busy playing with his friends. Teacher called Idlan, and he jumped joyly when he noticed I was at the door. Not so good news from the teacher, Rayyan did’nt eat @ school while Idlan only ate the fried mee we “tapau” for them.

I was so sad. I scolded Rayyan in the car on the way back. He cried when I said he has to eat whatever served @ school! I prepared spaghetti bolognese for dinner as he asked for it. He ate a lot, Idlan too. After dinner, I brought him to Tesco to buy foods that he’ll like to bring to school. In the car, he told me that the chicken served is too big. At home we’ll “koyak-koyak” the ayam to tiny pieces. Padan la dia tanak makan.. anak manja. So, that night before sleep I’d pujuk2 Rayyan  & Idlan to eat @ school. Adik said “Ok mummy”. Rayyan said “makan sikit aje”. Whatever but pls eat.

Hubby told me that Rayyan cried at school yesterday while having lunch. His teacher said  he wanted to go home. hmmm… And today, I promised to call him at school. He missed me la! And he missed my cooking too! Argh…does this mean I need to prepare lunch & break for them. Supermom to be kena tabah selalu kan… sob sob.sob..

The Boys in 2009

We’d moved the kids from our room on 010109. Rayyan was very excited to sleep on his own, while Idlan felt so sad to sleep without us. Hubby finally decided on this as bibik is going off & I’m back to work, he felt the need to re-organize. There we were with shifting furnitures, organizing things, getting rid with the un-necessary & old items and lots more. Hubby really loves this chores (yes, he’s very organize & fussy hubby). As he’s strength is in this, he did most of the things while i was the one who did the shopping part (my strength, ya my strength).

I sewed the malmon curtain, believe it or not!

The wardrobe yg sesuai with their heights..easy for mummy kan

First morning was the first day i need to go to work (poor me!). Woke up at 6 and found Idlan was in-front of the door (our room). He sat there and as soon as he saw me, he started crying..”mummy, kenapa ayah tak tido bilik adik? ” waa…pity him. But i asked hubby to shift to his the kids room la (for a while that morning).

Driving was a breeze when lots of people were still on leave. Arrived MenaraTM in 20 minutes drive, hubby called me and told me that the kids had themselved showered on their own (attached bathroom)…he said “tatau nak ckp rasa apa, sedih pun ada, happy pun ada..wahahaha” And Rayyan bathed his brother…so cute, I’ved missed this part of them growing up..huhuhu..

050109 — The kids started their schooling days. They were too excited. Had been asking for weeks. Hubby sent them to TLC as i felt that it’s not right la for me to take leave on my 2nd day of work kan. Though Rayyan was in TLC last year, but this time they had to stay for whole day! The thing’s that worried me was on the eating part. Rayyan is a picky eater, fussy and lots more .He’ll eat a lot if only it’s satisfy his criteria (too many tau!). Last year, he brought food from home & he never eat school food. Takpe jugak sbb until afternoon, but how if full day?

Idlan & Rayyan were so happy @ school. No tears, always playing with friends (Rayyans’ friends are my friend too — Idlan). Back from school, they’re two happy kids eagerly chit chatting with me until mid night. They ate lunch that the school served & I was more than happy to hear that ” mummy, ayam dia sedap sangat..rice dia color yellow”. But they just drank 1 bottles of milk @ school (normally it’s about 4-5 bottles from noon to evening). Hmmm, I’ll need to see the milk intake pattern @ school but i’d ensure that they had their bottled milk once they wake up, 1 glass of low fat milk, heavy breakfast before they go to school. Every night & morning we need to remind them, eat break fast @ home & lunch served @ school!

Welcome 2009

2nd January 09 — Back to office! Came with a lot of positive perceptions & motivations. Wish that i will be able to face the challenges in 2009 … working & maid less (soon to be). wish me luck 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.

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???

Yoga ..Haram?

The top story nowadays, Yoga is haram for muslim according to fatwa.

For me, a lot of things is also haram, but still people didn’t care to bother about it kan.

Tunjuk aurat — haram,  minum arak — haram, makan khinzir — haram,  berzina — haram, berjudi — haram, Yoga — haram

i got a lot of e-mail from friends about yoga is haram (maybe because they know i was practicing before), they’re forwading all the fatwa, reasoning and etc.. where up till making me wanna vomit blood

Hey people out there, I was once practicing yoga…but not doing it at all when the fatwa is out. Because i know, nobody can challenge a fatwa. The council will be responsible for what they’d decided. so, just follow the ruling la kan…if u like it &  u still wanna continue it, up to you la …as for me, I’ve left yoga and continue with the alternatives… pilates & belly dancing & exercising .. ..

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.
