12 December

12 December - yep, today is my birthday. I am officially 38 and I am not shy to announce it. Age is just a number. I am thrilled to have lived yet another year & I am thankful for everything.

I am thankful for my wonderful family & I am thankful for awsome friends like you whom I have met thru blogging.

....and I am thankful to my dearest hubby for these advanced birthday gifts... (love you honey .. muaaaah)

12 December - yep, today is also my elder sister's birthday.

Nope, we are not twins. Our birthday falls exactly on the same date but on a different year. To my dearest sister Nainey, I wish you a very happy birthday & many happy returns. Let the happiness be there in the year that's about to start - happiness in your thoughts and happiness in your heart. May God bless you abundantly & fulfill your dreams.

Salam Aidil Adha

Hari Isnin nanti, semua umat Islam di seluruh dunia akan menyambut Aidil Adha. I bet ramai yang akan balik kampung because of the long holiday.

Apa motif gambar Sapi ini?

... sebab sapi lah yang selalu berdebar-debar bila tiba Aidil Adha

Anyway, here is a quick note to wish all my muslim readers and friends - Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha. To those yang balik kampung, I wish you all a safe journey and enjoy your holiday.

Icing on the cake

Wake up extra early today to put icing on the cake. Nobody ordered any cake, just that I’ve promised hubby a few days ago that I’ll bake him a cake for him to bring to the office.

No fancy decoration, just plain cream cheese icing. Should be ok just for them to makan-makan selepas breakfast nasi lemak di Krishna. When I’m done however, I notice that the cake is too plain. Then I teringat Whimsy and her life size doll, I have something similar but smaller ..Nah …Whimsy, what do you think?

Or would you prefer this? Which also remind me that I have not done any shopping for Christmas present. Aiya….

Our GM is on the way to the airport now; he is off to somewhere for a looooooong break with his family. I wish him safe journey, selamat bergumbira.

Doesn’t mean that the rats are free though.. the CEO will be coming in anytime now. Ooops… which also mean that I have to sign out now, nanti teropot pula blogging during office hours.

Have a nice day everyone. Will visit your blog later today.

My weekend

Went for a hair makeover on Saturday. Traumatized of the outcome, therefore not going to post any picture of the new hairstyle. Baked these muffins to ease my trauma.

The girls wanted a small Christmas Tree for their room, so went shopping for one on Sunday. Done with the shopping hubby treated us for lunch at Grace Point . It was a bit early when we arrived, so most of the stalls are still closed. Had no choice but to order food from the Mee stall.

I asked my daughters if they want to follow me to the washroom while waiting for the food, but they prefer to be with their dad. When I came back, my daughter asks ...

Aby : Lama juga mum..
Me : Ya, I took these …..

well... just want to share with you the clean and cosy washroom area...

So what did we had for lunch?

fish ball mee for the girls ...

mee basah for hubby

..and mamak mee for me

... sent the girls home and went for photography outing with hubby. Sorry, will only share you the pic next time, cos if I share it with you now, then I will have nothing to blog later. LOL.

...thats how I spend my weekend. What about you?

Caught in a jam

Caught in a jam .. again!

Just when I started to feel real bored, I saw a nice view through the window. Being caught in this jam is not bad afterall... Took my Nikon S210 from my handbag ...snap, snap...

"The image could have been better if you had taken it with your DSLR camera", hubby said.

But I always give the same excuse. "Its big, I cannot put it inside my handbag. Maybe next time, one of these days..."

Happy Friday everyone, enjoy your weekend.

...the therapy

Friday : 20 November @ 12.30 p.m
I wish I can say TGIF, but those are customer's files that demand urgent action. Pening my head. I need some therapy ....badly.

@ 1.00 p.m
headed for lunch at Kenny Rogers 1Borneo with my 3 girlfriends. Sedap-sedap makan muffin, sempat lagi dorang kena telefon boss for some figures - well it was our company's Board Meeting in KL so ..... understand

@06.05 p.m
when I left the office, I did not bother to clear the mess, tutup computer jak. Aduh .. sakit kepala!

@ 08.30 p.m
it was raining cats and dogs. Hubby and I decided to bring the kids out for dinner.

Makan di Grace Point - hubby had fried fish and I makan the ginger chicken - yummy.

The kids and their kakak penjaga seperti biasa makan nasi ayam.

Saturday 21 November @ 10.00 a.m
Breakfast di Krishna Asia City. Nasi lemak sudah habis, so hubby had chapati while the girls and I makan roti bakar saja.

Lepas makan, we drove all the way to Kota Belud. Wah.. banyak nya sapi dan kambing di tepi jalan. Pusing-pusing kampung but nothing caught the attention of hubby's camera, so we drove back. (.. kami teda turun pun dari kereta)

@01.30 p.m
on the way home singgah for lunch at Gayang Seafood. Oder this 3 jak, takut ndak habis.

@09.15 p.m - baked these cakes for Jovena.

...blueberry cheese cake for her daugher Hannah


carrot cheese cake for Hannah, Ian and Isaac. November Birthday, she told me.

Sunday 23 November @ 12.00 p.m
... tempted to buy a bag at Elaiza. Not as expensive as the sapi in Kota Belud lah, probably, just half the price of the kambing, but suddenly I came to my senses, so tidak jadi.

..... had lunch at RCH instead.

Argh.... tomorrow is Monday, I still have those many paperwork waiting for me .. but I hope tomorrow will be a better week.

Still around ..

Yeah, I am still around. Just that I am so much like this bird....

Terkurung di dalam sangkar. My time now is very much dedicated to work, work and more work. ...oh how depressing!
Honestly, I wish that I no longer need to remain in this cage.

I apologize for not being able to visit your blog lately as I am still struggling to finish up whatever is due before I take my leave in December. I miss reading your stories thats for sure, but always know that you are all very near to my heart.

On a lighter note, our boss treated us to a fulsome lunch on Monday. Green Lobster, Coral Trout, Flower Crab, Prawns are just some of it. See, big kan the lobster?

Lobster butter sauce. Pics taken before the lobster head kena kasi jadi soup. We had 2 of this lobster untuk 13 orang makan.

Not really interested to take pictures of the rest of the food sebab sibuk mau makan. Took this lobster pic sebab mau lawan gambar butter crab Fabmom.

While I was enjoying the lobster ....

Boss: Nes, nanti you settle bill ya..
Me : Boss?
Boss: Nanti you claim la, next week kan gaji dah.
Me : Hmmm...

...nah, that remind me that I have to submit my claim by tomorrow. How much? RM1,398.17 for Monday lunch. Ada lagi claim lain yang resitnya masih belum jumpa. Uwaaaaa....

We had a small Raya makan-makan untuk jiran tetangga during the recent Depavali Holiday. My jirans are ALL non muslims, so every year hubby and I would normally have a special open house just for them.

Not so many food lah. 4 types yang ini :

dan ada kelupis dan nasi impit yang ndak sempat di ambil gambar.

... since we have not celebrated Aryssa’s 1 year old Birthday, hubby and I thought that it would be nice, if we can prepare a cake for her to cut on the same day. I have not baked for sooo long. Kemalasan mem bake selepas lama berehat tu masih belum hilang actually. But since its for my daughter, I kuatkan juga semangat tu.

It was already late when I finished baking the cake. And memang I feel extremely tired. So I told hubby that I am going to sleep for a while and decorate the cake later. I must have overslept, cause when I woke up, it was already 6.00 am the next day. The day that I am supposed to have my open house. Adoiiii, macam mana ni??. I rushed to the kitchen only to find this ….

I smile from ear to ear. Fantastic! My hubby sudah siap mendecorate kan kek tu. Oh thank you, thank you my love. Chantique kan?

... ok lah, itu ja yang I can think of today. My mind is not cooperating well. Nanti lagi ya...

I feel great!

I apologize for the lack of update. It has been a tough week for me ever since I came back from my KL trip. Challenging, exhausting, draining, and all the synonyms that you can think of lah. But I feel much better now…

See this beautiful roses? Hubby surprised me with these on Tuesday.

He gave me a hug, a kiss and said: I love you so very much, Mama.
Being the sensitive person that I am, my tears fell like the morning rain. He touched my heart more than he knows…

To my dear hubby, I can only say these...

As the years go by, I stop and think about all the memories we've made, the good times we've shared and the love between us that keeps growing. You are not only my husband, but my best friend and soul mate. You are a blessing from above. I thank you for all the things that you've done for me and the kids. I love you Dad ... more than words, more than life. I'm forever grateful for your love and proud to be your wife.

... aaah.. I feel great! ..and I wish you all the same.

Wednesday, October 22, 2008


Glad to be home.
Can't say that I’m dog-tired, cos then I have to find a picture of a dog to replace this…

Thanks for dropping by today, but I am still cat-tired. I’ll share with you stories of my KL trip when I feel much better.

Happy Birthday Little Girl!

Aleeya turned 6 last Sunday - 12 October.

We did not have any celebration at home because she insists to celebrate her birthday with friends at Tadika. "Just a simple one mummy & can kah Boy the clown come? Please, please, please … mummy please ....."
.. and well I agreed.

It was simple indeed ….. only Happy Meals for the children and teachers. Boy the Clown was not reachable so we engaged the McDonald mascot to entertain the children.

Notice the small cakes? No, I did not bake them…I am still extremely lazy to bake so I bought 2 small cakes from Strawberry. Why two cakes? Because one is with Hello Kitty icing image to match her Hello Kitty earring and the other one is with Princess image as she loves playing Princess at home. matter how many birthdays come and go,
you'll always be our little girl.
Happy 6th. Birthday Aleeya Batrisyia.
We love you,... much.

The Wedding

...and I attended the 10.10 wedding.

Look at the pics, its all purple.
As the couple entered the hall, the violinist played a beautiful song and then there were bubbles everywhere...& confetti filled the stage..

.. Chantique!

The newlyweds, my cousin Maker and his wife Christine @ten-ten.

and of course yours truly ..

....nothing special, just a plain pink dress, .. but because the boutique gave me 60% discount for the dress, I just feel like showing it off to you. LOL.

Friday, October 10, 2008


Yes..yes.. I am back to work and I have bunch of stuff to do in the office, but honestly... I am still very much in a holiday mood. Thank God its Friday so I can layan my mood.

Oh but today is 10.10, I will be attending my cousin’s wedding tonight. They chose 10.10 because the bride’s birthday is today – 10.10. .. and guess what? Her nickname is ten-ten. I was at their place last night for the final preparation…, they prepared 10 cakes. Serba sepuluh? Hmm.. I hope they will not get carried away with the number 10 and decide to do the cake cutting ceremony at 10.10 tonite. Theme color for the wedding is purple. So most of the cousins will be in purple tonite, but I am allergic to purple, so I’ll just wear pink. Want to show off my pink dress here, but I haven’t got the time to snap snap. So next time lah.

My post will be incomplete without any photo, so I’ll share these ...

Meet Papai, our long hair cat. We bought him from a Clinic when he was just 6 months old. He is already 4 1/2 years old now. Look at his big mouth ... Naughty Cat!

Happy Friday everyone. Have a nice weekend.

Salam Aidilfitri

4 more days to Hari Raya.

Kalau ada sumur di ladang
boleh kita menumpang mandi,
kalau tidak ada sumur,
mandi aja di kamar mandi.
Kalau ada khilaf yang ku perbuat,
baik di sengaja ataupun tidak,
mohon dimaapin yaa..

Perhaps this is a lil bit early, but since I don’t know if I will be able to blog again di saat-saat akhir, so I would like to take this opportunity to wish all Muslim friends and readers – Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri Maaf Zahir & Batin, the non Muslims, ....selamat bercuti.

Faith makes all things possible.
Hope makes all things work.
Love makes all things beautiful.
May you have all of the three.
Salam Aidilfitri & hope you will have a great and safe holiday!
