:: simple update ::

5 hari lagi, and i'll start working again. dan routine biasa selepas pantang and sebelum kerja is to check the wardrobe for baju2 yang masih muat.. selongkar shoe rack check kasut ok lagi ke tidak, and selalunyyyaaa kena beli baru, sebab dah 1 tahun x pakai kasut, surely the kasut will brittle to bits and tersgt la tidak presentable utk ke office.

i haven't hit the weighing scale yet. rasanya dah turun 1 kg, tapi tuh mungkin impian semata-mata. berserah & tawakkal jek. :)

yesterday, OH took leave and we gave a visit to the school that i intended to send my kids to. it was my kindy before, and i am a firm believer that, that kindy has given me a good head start in my schooling years, and i want my children to benefit from that too. so insya Allah, if everything goes according to plan, the kids will hit the school ground early next year, insya Allah.

btw, OH has asked me, whether i wanted to experience the life of an expatriate. ntah a bang oiiiiii. i'm sucha greedy person, that i want all. i don't want to take unpaid leave, but at the same time, i want the kids to be near to their father. cemana???

sampai bila la nak kena dilema cam gini.

:: tawakkal je la ::

dah lama tak bersiaran. i was so busy past few days, with aqiqah preppy and sort. syukur, majlis berjalan baik, makan pun cukup.

aidin dah selamat dibotakkan lepas kenduri. my hubby and i kerjakan kepala dia for almost 1.5 hr! yep, aidin banyak rambut. :D alhamdulillah. bulat jek kepala skang, and dah ada sign dah pun rambut baru tumbuh.

in less than a week time, i'll be hitting the office again. runsing pikir hal anak2. i have a maid, but my maid is pretty hopeless. but i still need her to look after my kids. nasib kontrak dia dah nak habis. some may ask, napa tak hanto jek balik? kalau la budget bukan soalnya, aku dah lama berhentikan!! quitting job is also not an option, walaupun pada hakikatnya, aku nih bukan la career minded sangat pun! but i need a backup plan if anything bad happen to the family. at least ada cushion.

tawakkal jek la......

:: sungguh ku tak mahu! ::

OH is away in Miri. syukur for it's only for a day. alhamdulillah, kids behaved well yesterday night. it is the first night ever, i was alone handling all three kids.and knowing the elder two, putting them to sleep sometimes need a little bit of force. they used to be good sleeper, sleeping @ 8.30pm, but nowadays, 10.00pm would be a lucky day for us. perhaps, sebab tido dekat rumah atok & wan dia, makes them a little hyper. and sleeping @ 10, means i have to multitask, breastfeeding aidin, and doa recital as well as story telling @ the same time. (i skipped the story telling yesterday, as i was very unwell)

i have few things that i plan to do before i start working back. but time seems so tight, that i don't know where to squeeze my planned activities. tgk la cemana.

kay la peeps. takde idea sgt nak tulis blog ini hari. hazy mind, mode malas on sebab terkenang in a week time dah nak start keja balik. sungguh ku tak mahuuuuu!

:: 44 hari ::

it has been a busy week for me, that i can't find anytime to write. insya Allah, we'll be hosting kenduri aqiqah and cukur jambul for my lil' aidin upcoming weekend. i'm trying to keep it simple.

aidin is 44 days old today, marking my last day of confinement. weight lost is not too good. tak pe la.. slow-slow.. (nasib baik aku tak suka pakai kebaya!! :) at least that's something that can make me smile!)

anyway, we were (or i was) actually thinking of planning something nice end of may, as we're hitting our 7th year of marriage. malangnyaaaaaaa, baru jek terbayang2 nak gi jenjalan, skali semalam OH kata dia MAYBE kene pegi turkmen. nyampah tul! selalu kena gi on some significant dates, and during long weekends. i guess that's the'slimming package' that he got for me la suppose.. huhu.

on other notes, meh dengar cerita afiq adib.

:: scene 1 ::

location : my room at mom's

it was sleeping time. we've been teaching the kids to recite du'a before sleep, and will then treat them to bedtime story. i won't start telling the story if they don't recite the du'a. with aidin presence, i normally at the same time get aidin to change his diapers before putting him to a good night sleep, with his brothers around him.

afiq : aidin, baca doa dulu. kalau tak bace, apik tak nak cerita.

amboiiii. he really sounds like his mommy!

:: scene 2 ::

location : living room

adib : hello. (while picking up the phone)

and he goes on like this..

pshhh.. pshhh.. pshhh.. (kunun2 cakap omputih!)


lawak la budak berdua nih.. and skang makin payah nak suruh tido. i just simply don't know where does their energy come from! it takes both of us to put them to sleep.

:: between happy and frustrated ::

we had aidin checked last thursday. he is progressing well, though he's not out of jaundice 100%. but his jaundice is not alarming, so nothing to be worried of. aidin has gained a total of 1.16kg, making him a 3.76kg baby now.

afiq and adib is getting more receptive towards lil aidin, much to what i've been hoping for. they're getting more attentive, and their lil hands help mommy a lot with lil aidin. syukur Allah, syukur for this happiness that You give me and family.

on other note, my 'slimming' program hasn't clock in good result, much to my dissapointment, after following a pretty rigid food intake and pantang rituals. i only lost 7kgs, after 36 days. and my current weight is not 57kg, it's 58.8!!ayoooooo!

kay la peeps. only a short update today.

ps 1 - it touches my heart yesterday when afiq said this to me, "cian anak mommy takde nenek." (nenek refers to maid). guess he misses his nanny so much!

ps 2 - aidin was crying, and afiq came and stood beside him, asking lil aidin, "aidin nak apa?" alahai.. very brotherly!

ps 3 - it took me more than half an hour to post this update. dua kali pit stop!

:: it's all about the kids ::

afiq and adib's sleeping pattern has gone haywire lately. before this, they used to doze off at around 8.30 to 9.30pm, but nowadays their awake time has gone up to 12.00 midnight! it's not that we didn't put them to sleep, but it seems that there are too many things that they want to do at atuk and wan's house.

selalunya, bila nak tido, i'll start by switching off the lights, susu and then baca doa. after doa, they'll ask for a bedtime story which always revolved around thomas and friends characters. and they want the same silly story that mommy out of the blue created for them every night.

and yesterday, sleeping time gone up to 12.00 midnight, aidin was not sleeping well, thanks to the phlegm. he was in between sleep and crying till 3.00am roughly. fuh. but amazingly, i didn't had any headache today, and i just simply wonder where does the energy comes from.

on a lighter mode, afiq and adib is getting cheekier day by day. here goes some scenes:-

:: scene 1 ::

place : mommy's room at mak's

adib was about to sleep. snugging comfortably under mommy's duvet while drinking his milk on our bed. adib inherited mommy's way of sleeping - sleeping on side and at the edge of the bed. :P afiq keeps on disturbing adib, that cause adib to burst out.

adib : jangan kacau adib!!!
afiq : kacau sket aje....

afiq continued to kacau till i and OH can't help it but laughed our heart out.

:: scene 2 ::

place : mak's family area

i was having my morning massage with the akak bidan when afiq woke up. it was monday, a day after his favourite nenek (maid) went back for good.

afiq : mommy, afiq tak nak nenek siti (my maid), afiq nak nenek tuti (mak's maid)
me : kan nenek tuti dah balik indon. nanti nenek baru afiq sampai.
afiq : mommy, bola nenek baru afiq nak sampai?
me : nenek baru dah kat station, tapi kapal terbang belum sampai lagi. nanti kalau kapal terbang dah sampai, mommy suruh nenek tuh datang cepat sikit.
afiq : afiq tak nak cepat sikit. afiq nak cepat banyak.
me & akak bidan : (gelak besar)


:: scene 3 ::

place : mak's living room

mommy : adib, mommy nak candy.. (sambil buat muka sedih gila)
adib : cian mommy tak de candy
mommy : napa adib tak beli candy kat mommy?
adib : nanti siang kita beli kay?

(sebijik cara aku cakap bila nak pujuk adib. how fast kids immitate!)

okay la peeps. i haven't upload yet the items yang i nak let go. it's afiq and adib's winter jacket and winter pants that we bought the other day masa pegi UK. pumpkin patch, very good condition, and only worn masa pegi UK trip - 2 weeks. jacket tuh lebih sesuai untuk mild winter - say 10 degrees and above. ada 2 pieces available for both item, satu size 3 tahun, satu size 2 tahun (my twin tak sama besar). kalau ada sesapa yang berminat nak have a look just drop me your email add and i can email u the pics. i'll try to load it asap la dalam blog.

:: Announcement ::

i have few afiq and adib's pre-loved item to let go. insya Allah, i'll post it up asap.

:: jumbled up entry ::

aidin is having his noon nap, n i'm actually very sleepy. but i just miss my blog that i decided to give my sleep a let go. aidin is practically mommy's koala bear. good night sleep is almost non existence. 2 hours max is pretty good already. and not forgetting my twins still asked for milk in the middle of the night. tapi bak kata my old buddy, aju, who has twin boys and a girl (only a year apart), life without the kids would mean nothing. so true, indeed!

12 days to go before merdeka. i can't wait to see the world! (owh, and that reminds me to renew my driving license.) baru perasan lesen dah mati 2 months ago! hehe. i can't wait to drive around. i can't wait to bring my kids to enjoy the park.

afiq is coping well, despite his favourite nenek (maid) dah takde. he cried his lung out (of course) when we sent her off, and keep on looking for her once in a while. but syukur, there's no sign of demam or what so ever. alhamdulillah.

lama pulak tak cerita pasal the kids vocab kan? this one is pretty catchy. i was having my morning massage with the mak bidan (or akak bidan more likely) when he woke up. he came by and sat beside me. suddenly, dia amek something and hold it up like a microphone, sambil jerit "ALUM COLA". it took me a great one day to discover what he's trying to say, till my phone 'azan' (auto azan bila masuk waktu solat). now i get it. it is the verse of "tunaikanlah solat" rupanya. adoi afiq.. comel beno bunyi!

okay la peeps. my entry is so caca marba. author not in a good mood la. take care yeah!

ps - sekali sekala, teringat pada arwah amin.
