:: ptk, oh ptk ::

i'm not really in a good mood today, despite having good sleep yesterday night.. something bugging my head and my heart, but it's pretty hard for me to say it out loud.. that's a huge change in me, after i got married.. from a head tempered person, who always blast her anger out, to someone who kept things to herself, unless she can't take it anymore.. perhaps, getting married, learning to give and take has given me the chance to learn how to increase my patience level in dealing things..

2 weeks time - PTK.. for those who are not aware of what PTK is, it is an assessment (read:exam) that any civil servant has to sit in assessing the competency level.. manage to get the syllabus yesterday, and i feel like fainting.. the topics to be read are seriously BANYAK GILA.. that i don't know will i have time to complete at least half of the chapter to enable me to pass with flying colours.. with my condition now, i'm taking it easy.. as on the exam day, i'll be in my 35-36 weeks.. anytime for labour.. (takpe tempat exam tuh sebelah hospital jek.. if hubby tak dapat nak pick me up due to his work commitment skali pun, insya Allah, there'll be bunch of people there to send me to the labour room)

so far at this particular moment, i believe that my baby is still in breech posistion.. i still feel free (tak rasa sesak nafas or whatever, except for pain in the lower abdomen).. and i still can tunduk² while writing on my desk without having me to stretch out my hands to pick things up.. even the tummy looks wide.. so, guess i'm right.. if Allah has decided that c-sect is the best for baby and me, i'll take it with redha.. and if Allah has destined me to go through normal labour, i pray that i'll be brave to wave through the challenges and pain to deliver my precious baby.. whatever the mode is, i pray for the best and safety for both me and baby.. aminn..

as for afiq and adib, alhamdulillah, they have grown up to 2 cute toddlers, each with their own distinct characters.. dah tau berebut, dah tau jealous, all that makes my life even more beautiful..

afiq has become so interested in keys, that he managed to shove lil' keys into pad lock.. (i now wonder how long will the stair gates last at my house, since he's very passionate in learning how to open pad locks! should have paste the pic to let u witness his skills..) recently, dia kena gigit nyamuk banyak gila, that when i asked him 'mana gatal?' he'll point his hand out..

adib on the other hand, has started to learn how to kick ball.. dengan jalan ala² angin lintang, he'll kick the ball that is lying on the floor.. have started few words, though it's not too clear.. love to hear azan (so do afiq) that they will put one of their hand at their ears (macam bilal tengah azan).. hoping that they'll grow up as seorang muslim yang sempurna iman, amal, takwa and amalnya to Allah the Al-Mighty.. amin..

as for our third unborn child.. he's now pretty active in mommy's tummy.. i can see my baju bergerak² kena tendang (not only baju, sometimes afiq's hand as well, when afiq fall asleep on my lap).. we haven't arrive at a name yet.. but there're few that has caught my attention.. recently, i've seen a trend of giving names like adam, danish, danial, aisy, etc.. insya Allah, i'll try to avoid those names.. sbb ramai sgt nama tuh.. but above all, i'll make sure that name brings good meaning as it is a doa from parents.. so far, the scan says it's going to be another birdie.. tapi kalau nanti tetiba keluar girl, then, i have to open back the books and baca nama girls pulak..

okay la.. i'm ending my entry now.. enjoy reading.. hope my mood will be better soon..

now putting on my thinking cap : nk pegi ke dak san francisco pizza this noon? yummy, yummy pasta..

:: ramblings from a distracted mind ::

i was pretty unoccupied with work yesterday at the office.. i manage to browse thru some recipe, which i find interesting to try, fruti pizza, since my 2 active boys are so much into fruits.. it looks so yummy yet very healthy.. (am learning from my boys to eat healthier!)

as mentioned before, i'm sending my boys to my in laws' house at the moment since my parents are away in shanghai.. to my amaze, they're enjoying themselves more than i thought! perhaps, the presence of their older cousins especially biggie adam ariff has bring lotsa cheers in their life.. they seem so hyper, eat a lot and yes, mengigau a lot too at night! (that one i tak suka) i feel happy to see them that way, but i think it's pretty impossible to send them to my in laws for a long run, since i need to have at least 2 maids to look after them.. (handling 2 boys yang tengah jalan² ala² angin lintang can be pretty handful!)

i'll be having an important exam in 2 weeks time.. i still have inches of notes to read but less stamina to stay awake at nights to do so.. camana ek?

owh, anyway, lately, i've started to crave lots of things.. which i'm very much trying to curb, as i've been putting few kgs here n there.. (it's not that i'm on diet while pregnant, it's just that i'm trying to watch what i eat, as what i crave are things that are full of fats and high in sugar e.g. ice cream and creamy pastas!) huhu.. my appetite is balooning, and seems that no amount of food could satisfy my hunger.. that is a sign of unnecessary eating, isn't it? (plus i takut tak leh shed off the weight.. i have nos of friends who're still struggling to return to their pre-pregnancy weight) i'm so lucky that i have twin after my first delivery that i managed to shed 19 out of 20 kgs that i've gained.. plus my 'mak bidan' who looks after me during my confinement period is doing pretty good job.. (tuh, my personal opinion la)i follow the pantang larang pretty well (though i at times, behind my mom's back but with hubby's consent had bites of cheese burgers and cupcakes since i'm tired of having the same rice with lauk org bersalin..)

hmm.. dahla kot sampai sini.. anyway, i'm coming into terms that i'll be losing my staff and a colleague (ayuni and reza) pretty soon.. they'll be transfered to the states of their option.. huhu.. but it's okay.. it's for their own goodness and happiness.. i wish both of them the very best of luck in their future.. they're nice people to work with, and after this makin kurang la org kat opis nih yang boleh berhuha huha sama.. huhu..

kay all.. blogging off now.. take care.. da!

:: stupid jokes in the middle of the night ::

chat with my husband this morning on the way to work.. we're not one typical couple who goes mushy-mushy, but rather gila-gila and crack stupid jokes.. that's us, when we're on our own.. just being ourselves.. i believe it's rather hard to believe that this is the way we communicate..

so i asked him, what shall i blog today? and he replied 'yesterday jokes'

so this is his yesterday jokes..

it was at night, after we put both afiq and adib to sleep.. (afiq and adib skang nak manja² dulu with mommy baru tido..)

hubby : yang, how do you spell hubby?

me : (blank)

hubby : i spell hubby this way - h-a-b-i

me : (sakit ati ni) oo okay.. i don't spell it that way.. i eja h-u-b-b-y.. sbb i takut i tersalah spell jadi ba-alif-ba-ya..

hubby : kurang asam! tak pe.. u know if i tersilap eja wife apa jadik? it would be w-i-f-i.. wi-fi..

me : cheh!

hubby : well at least, i didn't spell it this way w-i-v-e-s..

me : hey!! (kena debik sebijik)

and until now i wonder - apa motif laki aku tanya camana aku eja hubby? dia dah takde modal la tuh nak mengenakan aku!

well, anyway, those stupid jokes la yang make our life more colourful.. at least takde la dia tuh soul-less.. though sometimes we both could be hopelessly romantic!

kay dear, this one is for you!

:: penat.. ::

hai everyone.. entries in october seems to be a little bit slower than previous month.. i've been busy here and there (but get nothing done!~that annoys me!)guess, i've to sit in the corner and re-think my strategies so that more could be done as i'm nearing my due date pretty soon..

hubby is back from ukraine after a week long work.. he touched down safely in kl last saturday.. picked him up with the boys at kl sentral (i only have few inches of spacing between my tummy and steering.. so kalau lepas nih dia kena outstation lagi, i don't think i can drive anymore..) have cooked some chicken rice on saturday (read : not that i'm so rajin, but actually trying to be efficient in my housework.. masak satu je and everyone can eat that!) after cooking and lunch, the boys went off for their nap, and the mommy pun amik kesempatan to sleep, and the mommy slept longer than the boys! haha.. talking about overwork!

on sunday, i had an invitation from my BFF : salhana to her open house in putrajaya.. but i can't make it.. instead, i had to go to the hospital visiting my friends (read with s) yang baru bersalin.. it was an old friend of mine - lynn and hubby's friend - faisal.. both dapat baby boy.. it was sucha nice feeling cuddling up the new born baby.. lynn's baby is so handsome and adorable.. ada cheek mole lagi.. cute! izzul - that is what she called her baby.. hmm.. shared their experiences of delivery, and that made my bulu roma stand! haha.. :D (my boss yang anak 9 pun cuak setiap kali bersalin, inikan pulak i yang baru nak masuk2 kali masuk labour room) so far, i believe that my baby still melintang, and i'm approaching week 33.. kalau tak pusing jugak then, i have to go for scheduled c-sect.. kalau schedule c-sect, i'll try to get the day of jumaat sebab hari tu adalah penghulu segala hari for muslims.. (i delivered the boys on friday as well, plus hubby could have long weekend with me in the ward, and save up his annual leave)

today, i have to send my boys to my in laws.. as my parents are away.. the boys seem 'blank' this morning seeing themselves being chauffered to in laws place.. guess they will be having a long day today without naps, sbb ramai friends.. (my nieces and nephew will be there as well).. it's gonna be full house today.. hoping that the boys will behave.. kesian pulak kat my in laws nak handle 5 kids in the house.. :D

kay la.. stop dulu kat sini.. to my dearest hubby, thanx foe the birthday pressie.. :D

take care all.. zai jian!

:: snapshots of raya feast @ btb, jps malaysia ::

opismate with boss

the gediks.. ;D

with kak lang

my triffle

:: a quiet birthday ::

yep, i'm officially 28 yesterday.. it was a quiet celebration, and i thank Allah for giving me the chance to continue breathing, to seek forgiveness and to perform more ibadah to prepare myself for the big day..

hubby texted me all the way long from ukraine.. this is the first time ever we didn't celebrate my birthday together.. i do feel a lil' bit lonely, but with the presence of my boys, it helped to distract me from thinking about it.. wishes kept on pouring in.. facebook and my hp are flooded with calls and messages (yeah, maybe i exaggerate a lil' bit..) but, hey these well wishes made up my day! thank you!

but anyway, afiq and adib didn't sleep well last night.. 12.30am, 2.30am and finally 5.15 am.. they decided to wake up at quarter past 5 in the morning to play! huahuahuahua.. afiq only dozed off before i pushed off to office, while adib, fresh awake pointing here and there.. guess they miss their daddy, coz dib dib kept on uttering dad-dy in the wee hours.. wonder whether hubby miss them too?

okay all.. take good care.. enjoy this simple update from a finally official 28 year old living creature.. :D take care.. TTFN!

:: raya feast at the office ::

had a busy but wonderful day in office today.. it's a yearly raya feast program, where all staff would gather and have good time accompanied by good food.. i believe in this kind of get together program, as it's a way to break the barrier between the profesionals and the supporting staffs..

main food - catered.. nasi minyak, ayam kuzi, daging rendang, dalca and mee rebus, to name a few.. but, my division is well known for it's generous-ness in hosting a feast.. others chip in by sponsoring/bringing it great home made food.. we had roasted lamb with mint sauce, tapai pulut, sate, ketupat sotong, laksa penang, choccy cake, carrot cake, triffle, cocktails, imported lemang from kijal, rendang, naked macaroni, curry puff, pecal, rojak buah.. phew i hope i didn't miss anything! the outcome - full to the brim, that i can hardly walk and talk.. haha..

but despite the crowd, i at times feel lonely.. sobsob.. still missing someone dearly who's in a faraway land.. saturday seems too far..

i'll wait for my colleague to upload the raya pics.. and insya Allah will post up the happy faces in the next entry..

btw, i'm feeling heavier as days past by.. and i'm frequenting the toilet pretty much.. is that a sign to labour????????? baby, baby, please wait for daddy to come home, okay?

:: a lonely week begins ::

my lonely week begins yesterday night.. hubby is off to ukraine for on whole week due to work commitment..

sent him off to kl sentral yesterday night with my bro n mom, as well as afiq and adib.. adib behaved so well.. but afiq, turned extremely cranky after we dropped hubby off.. he cried all the way long from kl sentral back to my mom's place.. and fell asleep while crying with no milk sambil kena dukung ngan mommy.. luckily, he slept thru the night well.. :D

will head to the kitchen today to make some triffle for tomorrow's pot luck and plans to cook some cantonese fried kuey teow as my boys love it so much.. hopfully i'll be well enough to cook, as i have started to feel the pain here and there.. erk.. but still, i plan to bring my boys out.. perhaps to go to the bakery supply shop to grab some piping bags and nozzle.. hehe..

yesterday mom asked me whether i've started packing my 'labour bag'? have i started to pack my new born baby's clothing? i was like.. errr not yet.. partially done.. thanks mom for reminding.. (last time i delivered my babies at 32 turning 33 weeks, and i am now in my 31 weeks of pregnancy).. saba baby saba.. hopefully he'll come out on time, rather than too early.. (u have to be very strong if u delivered a preemie.. )

kay all.. take care..

ps : dear, i miss u..

:: anticipated : boring weekend ::

am not looking forward for upcoming weekend..

reason being :
will be left alone with the boys at my mom's place coz husband will be away in ukraine tonight till upcoming saturday..

outcome :

1. have to stay at my mom's place for the whole week.. have to pack and repack my stuffs..
2. unable to attend aiman's birthday bash, which i've been looking forward to..
3. no special weekend outing..
4. lonely birthday celebration.. huhu.. tak bestnya..

hm.. hopefully this would be the last outstation thingy that he needs to do for this year.. since my due date is getting nearer, and i'm afraid of being in the labour room alone without him.. aiyoo.. manyak takut oo..

have plenty of jamuan raya at other division in the office this week.. but i've attended none.. coz, i'm just too lazy to walk... it's pretty far, and i'll definitely get tired..

have i told u that i'm a fan of TARA (the amazing race asia)? i didn't get the chance to enjoy the show for two weeks in row already (not even the replay for last week's!) smalam, afiq meragam.. i guess he misses his 'nenek' aka my mommy's maid who went back for a month and a half holiday, attending his son's wedding.. yang kelakarnya, my mom's maid pun nangis², called my mom's place for 3 times already, and she can't sleep for a night coz he misses my afiq.. hopefully, afiq will overcome his cembengness fast.. sian sangat tengok..

anyway, i've been guilty for not wishing my best buddies on time for their birthdays.. and i'd like to make it up for them..

nadiah, yaya and nana dearie..

HAPPY 28th BIRTHDAY! sorry for i lewat wish.. there shouldn't be any reason for being late.. sorry sesangat.. hope u girls had a blast!

and to my friends, who'll be celebrating their birthday in coming days, adzra, ajax, shawn, who else?? err.....

happy birthday in advance!

ps: october mmg selalu cam gini.. happening.. ramai sgt among my good friends yang lahir in oct.. :D

:: of nothing and everything ::

sleepy head - i am..

afiq and adib didn't sleep well last night.. constantly woke up throughout the nights.. i'm not sure what's the problem.. pretty sure adib was having his colic night yesterday.. while afiq - perhaps, he just played too much in the days that he kept on mengigau last night..

hubby don't feel well.. he sent me off to office, and returned home to visit the dr.. good luck to your dear, in your quest for 'the golden seal'.. but i believe, he's in need of a good rest.. he has gone through sucha hectic month last ramadhan..

i'm due for grocery shopping.. and i have to stock up on fruits especially.. afiq and adib love fruits so so much.. yesterday afiq belasah 3 biji strawberry at one go, and crying for more.. tapi dah habis.. sian dia.. papaya pun dah habis, so do pisang.. so, kena la cari more and more fruits.. (teringat masa afiq kemaruk makan cherries.. he just can't stop!)

next week ada raya feast in the office.. have to bring some triffle for the party.. i can't afford to bake any pie this year.. next year, maybe..

kay readers.. hope u enjoy this short, brief entry.. have a good day.. salam..

:: a hectic weekend ::

it was sucha tiring but happening weekend.. plenty of openhouse invitations, etc..

we were supposed to be at afiq hassan's house on saturday evening, and yes we have started our journey, but we ended up being in ikea instead of afiq's house.. all due to extra heavy rain.. we patah balik masa dah sampai kota damansara, and we were trapped in heavy traffic due to flood kat sunway damansara.. adeh.. both afiq and adib dah mengamuk² dalam keta cakap 'mamam, mamam' - means they want to eat.. so we decided to stop at ikea, bought some food that i think they can eat, but ended up in mommy's and daddy's mouth coz they were distracted with the kiddies area.. saba jek la..

then on sunday, together with my parents in law, we attended my FIL's office raya gath, held in saloma's bistro, jalan ampang.. being afraid that my sons will go cranky, i make sure they had their lunch before my PIL fetc us up at home.. afiq especially enjoyed the lunch so much (they love kurma to bits, that mommy has to learn how to cook one, as mommy is not a fan of kurma).. manage to cook their 3 days food supply (so that my mom is at her free mind not to think of what to cook for my sons) - kurma daging, chinese fried rice (my sons love nasi goreng) and nasi ayam (simple version with soup).. lepas jek masak, rushed to feed afiq and get the maid to feed adib sbb adib mangun lambat sket from his morning nap.. while i siap² and manage to be ready before PIL sampai.. (talking about time management - i've been extremely excellent yesterday)..

head for saloma's bistro.. can't really enjoy the food, sbb adib macam not in good mood.. thought we could leave early, but then, due to FIL's work commitment, he needs to wait for the arrival of Tengku Mahkota Pahang.. we only pushed off from saloma at half past 3.. adib selamat tido, and afiq fell asleep in the car on my lappie.. sampai umah, terus rush solat zohor + asar.. dapat plak sms dari my old best buddy, lela nak dtg umah beraya.. rushed down to cook something for her.. masak simple jek, macaroni goreng sbb barang semua dah almost siap di prepare oleh maid.. i baru jek tumis bawang, lela pun sampai.. makan2 lepak2 borak2 with lela since the boys still tido (flattened out i guess) for 3 hours! they only woke up at half past 6..

directly after maghrib, head to my mom's, as she told me that dia dah masak mee kari.. MIL plak masak nasi dagang.. since tadi ptg dah ngan PIL, we went to my mom's and had curry mee, while hubby lepas tuh tapau nasi dagang later from MIL.. (selamat duit makan for monday.. hehe).. fater the scrumptious dinner, we head home at around 10pm, and i by then dah lalok2 sambil sakit badan.. hubby dengan baik hati urut my back, yeay and then went to sleep.. what a day!

today rasa macam malas gila nak pegi ofis, since most probably hubby won't be around next weekend.. (i still hope the kapal delays, so that he don't need to be away sbb hubby's visa dah nak expire) kalau delay lagi, (i should be able to know by today or tomorrow), bley lerr pegi bday party aiman (mas's son).. hehe..

okay all, ari nih i hope i could start my revision, as i'll be having an important exam early next month.. i've to start early since i'm afraid that my body can't take the stress.. hope i'll pass with flying colours so that i don't need to resit the paper.. :D

kay yea.. take care all.. TTFN!

:: from a fuzzy mind & 'almost well' body ::

my mind is wandering around.. my body is in the office, but my mind, my soul - elsewhere.. i've been pretty lazy in the office lately.. perhaps, raya mood, medical leave, long annual leave has resulted in this laziness of mine..

anyway, i'm thinking of what to do tomorrow, since hubby will be around in KL.. (alhamdulillah, his meeting in turkmenistan is postponed and he need not to attend the meeting - meaning : we could spend time together.. sbb kalau tak he'll be away for dingdongdingdong 10 days from home since lepas tuh kena continue pegi ukraine.. lega.. i can't imagine myself handling two boys for that long alone..) i want to cook something nice in MY OWN KITCHEN but at the same time, i want to go out with the boys and the man of the house.. i definitely can't do both, as my energy is pretty limited, and i'm getting heavier.. moving around and heavy works are not my mantra anymore.. i guess we're into simple cuisine this weekend which the boys and the man love a lot - cantonese fried noodles..

next, my office will be hosting a raya party.. as usual kena bawak something to eat.. my normal/requested dishes were normally shepherd pie.. but i'm just too lazy to do that this year, that i might just offer myself to make triffle.. senang kelije.. since i most probably have to prepare the dishes at mommy's place, i would very much want to avoid the oven, as the oven hari tuh dah hangitkan my cheese topping masa buat lasagna..

have plenty of openhouse invitations.. three coming up this weekend - papa's office invitation - this year round they host it in saloma's, afiq hassan's in shah alam and kak nurul's in pjaya..) i've got the date mixed up, have to rely on hubby to make necessary arrangement (macam cancel jek plan masak nih).. most probably have to turn down mastura's invitation to her son's first birthday party (bersalah sangat and rugi sangat rasa) as hubby maybe takde at that time..

lupa nak cerita.. yesterday we went out to look for the boys' new rides.. balik² jek dah half past seven.. normally they dah doze off.. but yesterday, upon seeing their new rides, they both get too excited, that they play with their toys till we settle our isyak.. haha.. changed their cloth 4 times just for the nights - peluh, basah, air liur meleleh (adib is drooling a lot.. gigi dia banyak gila nak kuar.. more than 5 i think at one go!) got the pics, tapi lupa pulak nak bawak memory card nak upload.. cute gila..

before ending, i've an announcemment to make.. big day coming up in 11 days.. somebody is getting older.. huhu.. but she will probably has to celebrate only with her kids around.. huhu.. sedey.. most probably there won't be any nice dinner out like last year.. last year siap double celebration lagi, lunchy munchy with hubby, dinner sponsored by father in law.. tata 27, welcome 28.. erk.. 28.. takpe.. takpe.. masih angka 2 kat depan.. ;) since he'll be missing 'her' birthday this year, he must definitely make it up kan? kan? kan? ngehngeh.. :D

TTFN! zai jian!

:: on medical leave ::

feeling not so good lately.. am on medical leave for two days already.. yesterday dengan selamba badak mintak MC, ari nih hubby advise to rest at home.. pagi tadi pun terlajak subuh.. yesterday dah dapat one round of massage, feels better, but does not last long.. perhaps salah sendiri semalam masa tido, posture badan tak berapa betul.. huhu..

had my monthly A&C yesterday as usual, and dr kata my baby is in breech position.. melintang.. he asked my delivery preferences.. bravely i said, 'if i can do normal, normal la..' huhu.. :D tapi bils dah scan kata breech, dia pun kata kalau breech tak bley buat apa la.. kena c-ect jugak..i actually tak kisah sgt method of delivery, as long as my baby and i are safe..

anyway, later that evening, me n hubby went to jusco to look for a ride for my boys.. but the choices were so limited, that we decided to look at another shop.. i was pretty hungry yesterday evening, so we headed to kopitiam.. had curry me with orange yoghurt smoothie, (i had to resist my temptation to indulge in the classic kopi o) and hubby had his normal toast and cham.. the food was fine, but i think they should step up their services quality, cause it was damn slow (i finished a bowl of curry mee and yet the toast tak sampai lagi atas table)..

what else.. owh, i tried this fish spa thingy yesterday.. haha.. i shrieked out the moment i dipped my feet in.. serious geli.. (read : i mmg tak tahan org geli my kaki, so imagine small fishes biting your feet).. i almost gave up, tapi mengenangkan duit dah bayo, so i proceed.. and to my amusement, i love it at the end of the session.. my skin feels so much better.. and i'm coming back for more! hehe.. masa tgh enjoy the spa thing, i met a long lost friend, whom i knew by the name of fauziah aka gee.. she was my classmate for a short period, before we were separated.. i can't really remember bila i satu kelas ngan dia.. i almost didn't recognize her, since she had long (read - very long) hair before.. and yes, she looks much prettier yesterday, that i thought i was looking at a model.. :D

made some triffle today for hubby to bring to his office sbb ada potluck.. alhamdulillah, my first trial went out well.. took the recipe from chef hanieliza.. it was easy, fool proof and worth a try.. i alter it a bit to my liking.. adib love it so much.. :D

apa lagi ek nak share.. takde dah rasanya.. take good care all.. watch what u eat! ;)

:: seriously bored ::

seriously, i'm bored at the office.. have nothing to do, yet still need to be in the office.. how nice would it be if i could just slip off back to home sweet home and cuddled up with my two boys.. (adib has been sleeping with me for the past two nights, and afiq has left his cot for quite sometime, and he seems to enjoy the borderless matress on the floor so much) it's raining pretty heavily outside and i do feel my eyelids are getting heavier as time passed by by.. (yet, time for punch out is still a long way to go!)

big things coming up this month, next month and a month after.. bro is getting engaged with a malacan girl this month, have an exam to sit the next month and new addition to the family coming up the month after.. pretty exciting (but i do hope the R&D people could speed up their research and find a solution to a painless labour.. hehe.. seriously TAKUT! they have more or less 2 and half months to go to find a solution - should the baby decide to follow the date precisely)..

still, i'm pretty worried about my future.. hubby is unsure yet on his contract status for the on going project.. i do hope he'll return back to his line department rather than continue being in the project team.. as if he continues, that means, we have to live apart (really apart okay, bukannye setakat within m'sia) for the next two years, which i believe and foresee tough life ahead raising up 3 young boys all by own.. until he come home and tell me straight at my face that he'll return to his line baru la hati i senang..

what else nak story, this time raya, i didn't make any cookies or whatsoever.. i have no time for it.. but still kuih raya belambak2 kat rumah, thanc to the hampers, mom, grandmom and ever trusted friend suraya for her lovely kuih.. i definitely recommend her crispy almond cornflake cookies.. seriously, delicious!

clock is ticking so slowly.. i can't wait to get home! argh!

:: raya entry ::

i was about to update my settigs today when i suddenly realized that i've entered my 100th entry in this blog.. wah, very the very productive! yeay!

so anyway, i hope it's still not too late to wish everyone salam eid mubarrak.. and maaf zahir batin.. i've just returned back from kampung visiting my grandmom aka wan in negeri sembilan last friday..

my raya journey started on the last day of Ramadhan.. we pushed off back to n9 on tuesday, after subuh prayer, with the hope that the boys will be asleep in the car, as it's still early.. but i guess, the boys are too smart that they could smell the flowers along the journey.. they decided to wake up pretty early that day, and stayed awake throughout the journey! but then, since we started the journey pretty early, it was a smooth one despite the berebut-ness between the boys to sit on mommy's lap in the car.. arrived in n9 at around 8.30am, and i get the boys to bath and have their cereal for brekkie..

i don't know why, but almost every year, i'll have this syndrome.. on the very the last day of fasting, i'll feel extra tried and extra tak larat.. as early as 9.30 am, my hands are shaking, tahan lapar.. but then since it was the last day of Ramadhan, i kuatkan iman and semangat to continue fasting, and alhamdulillah, i manage to complete my fast! hehe.. so tahun nih 30 days of puasa! yeay! (i don't want to add any more days to jumlah puasa yang tak habis ganti tahun lepas)

we had a short tahlil session before bukak pose.. afiq and adib behaved so well, that the tahlil was not disturbed by them.. bagus anak mommy (actually they enjoyed ayat² quran so much, that i would recommend to all new mommies to put ayat² quran on play from day 1 they were born..)

first day raya was a simple occassion.. for the first time ever, after 9 years (as per uncle's memory) mom's family were all there to celebrate raya together.. FULL HOUSE! we had family photo session, but both me and hubby didn't get to go anywhere - thanx to afiq and adib.. they put on baju melayu this year, but it didn't last long.. by noon dah merengek², guess it was too hot for them though mommy had tried her best to look for comfy material for them to wear.. we're all in yellow this year..

second day raya was spent at my dad's side.. managed to visit 3 houses, before adib decided to go cranky and fell asleep.. it was so hot, that i myself can't take it.. gave afiq a bath in the noon, and he decided to stay put in the water and doesn't want to come out! sekejap jek kat dad's side, by half past three, my dad dah ajak balik my mom's side coz he himself can't take the heat.. we head back to my mom's side (which is 20-30 mins driving) and spent the night there..

third day raya - we were supposed to head back to kl early in the morning, as per initial plan since hubby needs to pack up for ukraine, but alhamdulillah, his trip (again) was cancelled and he'll only need to be there by mid month (which probably means he'll miss my 28th birthday).. only head back to kl after asar, (sbbnya we didn't want to miss the ikan bakar and all the seafood) haha.. yummy!

simple, brief raya - but enjoyable though i fell sick on raya eve.. diserang viral fever, and till date tak 100% baik pun.. afiq and adib still belum berjalan, but adib has stepped up a lil' bit further from afiq.. guess they enjoyed crawling more than walking since lagi laju and they can kejar² each other.. bila la agaknya nak dapat kaki kan?

guess that's all on raya entry.. enjoy my 101th entry! take care, and watch your diet closely!

p/s : i loss weight.. don't know whether the scale is faulty or it's a fact?
