Homey turns Five

Friday, April 30, 2021

This date five years ago, Danna and I collected the keys to our very first matrimonial home sweet home. Wooohooo time flies!

Since it's a kinda special milestone for me, I was thinking of having a family photoshoot at home but  Danna wasn't excited about the idea so we scrapped that bleurgh. But gotta thank him tho for taking these pretty photos of our home. Makes me realise it looks quite nothing like how it was when we first moved in. Danna and I are big fans of styling the whole house every few weeks so we're always having different vibes for the house. In fact, the day after these photos were taken, we had some frames up on the walls and curtains installed in the living room. DK why it took us so long to decide on that curtains tho cos we love the homely vibe soOoOooOo much!

Looking back, I'm very thankful things didn't go as we had planned some six years back cos everything ended up much better than that. I still remember the night at Danna's office where we applied for our unit on the HDB website. We actually drew lots to choose which location we want LOL I know I question our decision making too. Anyhoo, I was not expecting the location we are in now cos it's so far from my parents' place. But we agreed on it anyway.

Then come the unit selection day, the unit we were hoping to secure wasn't available. So there we were, right in front of the officer, just tikam-tikam any house that we see from the list.No research, nothing! Once again, I can't believe we did that. 

Turns out this unit that we "tikam-tikam" is indeed the best. Mini's school is just conveniently located downstairs and my workplace, which is also Mini's future primary school, is literally just beside it. Danna is also able to WFH easily since he can tap on the school's WIFI cos yeap that's just how close we are to the school. We are just one bus stop away from our favourite place to lepak - Changi Aiport! 

And most of all, the number one reason we find it hard to let go of this place, I must say it's our neighbours. Some of you may know how close we are with our next-door neighbour, we're practically like a family.

Alhamdullilah, all's good.

And this brings us to the next question; to sell the house or NOT.
Nope, this time round, we better weigh the pros and cons and not just main tikam-tikam ah hahahaha

A Decade in a Nutshell

Saturday, March 6, 2021

Today marks my final day in my 20s. 
Yessss, gonna be welcoming my 30 tomorrow!

I remember when I was younger and telling myself  I’ll never be one of those people who make a big deal stressing out when they turn 30. But for the past few days as my birthday's looming around the corner, I don’t know why I’m bothered by the thought of entering a new phase of adulthood. Scary? Kinda. Somehow it feels like a milestone I’m just not ready to acknowledge. Or a goodbye forever to my youth.

Yup I know,  age is just a number, but sometimes I feel it’s a number that is representing to me how much I’ve fallen short of who I thought I’d be. Don't get me wrong, I am absolutely loving my life right now. My family, friends (mostly the same throughout my 20s!), my home sweet home and my job. It's just that some days it seems like there's always room for improvement. Or something greater.

But I digress. The point of today's post is to look back at the past decade and celebrate the highlights of every year. I must say it’s been a great 10 years. I have grown in every way possible this past decade 🤍

So we turned four years today! 
Some days it feels like we've been married for decades, but most days this feels like it was just yesterday.  


Danna and I had a simple celebration just the two of us, which is all I need really.  Having a kid really makes it hard for us to spend some time together cos besides work, it's that guilt of having fun without our Mini. lol. We paid ASAP & CO a visit, absolutely loving everything about that place. Definitely coming back for more couple time here.

Here's to 4ever & happily ever after dear Danna. Thank you for being my number one cheerleader and supporting me in everything I do. I'm forever so thankful to have you in my life. May He continue to bless our marriage and strengthen our Iman too. I love you, so much!

Mini's 3rd Birthday Party

Thursday, October 29, 2020

Super belated post here but it's better late than neverrrrrrr!

Mini has been bugging me for a birthday party since the day she learns what a birthday party is and how she gets to do all the things she absolutely love. Like blowing the candle, having cakes and sweets and most importantly...receiving presents! (Thanks to the Cocomelon birthday video she loves sooo much!) The theme was decided by her since the start of the year(ok more like ME who decided on the theme and she just said yes to it. Good girl :p) but as you know, Covid-19 happened and just like our all travel plans for this year (UGHHH!!), the dream party is totally ruin T_T

 On the bright side, it's a good thing Mini's birthday does not fall during the CB period, so at least we can still have a celebration at home and invite a few of our loved ones over! 

The dessert table. Ordered too much for a party of less than twenty attendees :p 
Also, loving the party bags and decorations I got from Shopee. Cheap cheap, good good!

Pavlova from @pavlorisya. Unicorn full spread biscoff basque cheesecake from @lovetowhisk. Premium tarts and cream puffs from @linzdalicious. ALL SO YUUUUUMZZ.

Aiyoh these three look exactly like their fathers ok! 100% CTRL C CTRL Z one! All looking like grumpy cats here but trust me when I say this is the BEST shot out of the 30298 ones we took of them. Pretty sure all moms can relate to this, lol. May the three of you grow up to be just as close as your mamas. 

BFF for life!

She loved the attention so much, she didn't let us stop singing the birthday song LOL.

Love you two! Also, this is the only best shot out of the 12739 pictures of us we took that day lol.
Y uno want to look at the camera Mini?!
