Birthday Highlights

Sunday, March 17, 2019

My fav month is here!

Danna and I had a bit of a scare with Mini at the hospital on the first day of the month, but thankfully it was nothing serious and I get to enjoy the rest of the days leading to my *ehem*18th birthday.



Sweet colleagues who sang me a birthday song in the staff room and bought me cupcakes!



Gift and a card from my darling neighbour. The surprised me at the doorstep with a birthday song and I was so inappropriately dressed lolz


Surprise from Danna. 


Oh he also surprised me with a one night stay at Sofitel City Centre. I love that man so very much 



There's also a surprise from my P2 kiddos. No wonder they have been acting so strange the whole week, rupenye they have were up to something. & that something is really so sweet, I wasn't expecting it, especially the presents. Also look what Danna gave me as a birthday pressie 

So that sums up my birthday week. I cannot be more grateful for these wonderful people in my life and the blessings He has bestowed upon me. I may not have all I have but I believe I do have all I ever need. Alhamdulillah, All praise to Allah.

Mini's Milestones : 17 Months

Saturday, March 9, 2019



Mini is 17 months old now!

The previous month was filled with plenty of 'first' experiences. No milestone updates, just some of my favourite pictures of Mini doing the things she loves and being all happy :)


At the zoo! Mini was not at all excited to see the animals she has been seeing in her storybooks. (she can say the names and sounds of more than ten animals now!) She was a lot more excited to see the water area, no surprise there.


The last time she has not walk yet, so it was both exciting and exhausting to see her running around.


This girl pantang nampak water, or as she calls them "bubbles"


First experience with fireworks. Unlike Mama, Mini was not feeling it. Her expression says it all.


We learned there's a playground at T1 the day we sent my sis off at the airport for her solo trip. Mini loved the space so much cos it's huge and empty, Mama loves it cos right at the viewing deck and most importantly, free :p

 
Playdates with Alisha. 


What happens when I say "Take picture!!" Mini will automatically stand in front of a wall and pose.

Confirm plus chop anak mak, this one :p

Fun at Fanpekka

Friday, March 1, 2019

Danna and I are frequent visitors to Aeon Mall Tebrau City at JB since our dating days. From catching a movie to splurging on their yummy food and doing groceries shopping, there's just so many reasons to love that place. Recently, we found another reason to keep coming back.

 & that is....
 

F A N P E K K A 

The perfect, magical indoor playground for all kids, and adults with inner kids within them... like me :D

Mini got in for free cos she's under the age of two. So we paid RM20 (RM10 for each adult) for unlimited hours of play. Yes that's right.. U N L I M I T E D play for RM20! Worth it or whutz!

Do take note that unlike the indoor playgrounds I've been to in SG, this one here requires some form of identification to prove your child's age. So we passed her passport for verification.

Also, socks is a must have! We didn't have one when we first came so we had to purchase one at RM6. Unfortunately the size was too big for Mini, so we had to find one at Mothercare.


View from the "Castle" The place is huge gaiseeeeee.

We've been here twice so Imma post pictures from both visits, so you'll see some pictures where Mini looks like this...


At exactly twelve months old. & some pictures looking like this:


At seventeen months old.

Gone were the days where the headband stays longer than a minute on her head lol

Mini's Milestone : 16 Month

Friday, February 8, 2019

Yes I've changed the title under #Miniupdate! Sound a lot better now, yessss?


My baby is now 16 months old!

So many things happened last month, sometimes I just can't believe my baby is all grown up. She can now follow simple instructions (e.g. "Take tissue." and "Wipe your mouth!") She's also a lot more independent now that she wants to do things by herself (like feeding, undress and putting on her shoes) SIGHPIE

As usual, we start with my fav pictures of Mini for the past month.


Mini's fifth flight. To Bali, blogged here.

Her obsession with mirror continues lol



Also her obsession with accompanying Mama in the toilet lololol


It was the Dec holidays period so we spent a lot of time going out...


She gets so excited every time she sees the playground.


Meeting good old friends...


Visiting the farm..


 & of course playdates! Lots and lots of em!


The day we brought Mini out in a stroller after sooo long.
For the first time we didn't use the Tula at all.


Spot the difference lol

Video : Umrah highlights

Wednesday, February 6, 2019


I've been getting a number of DMs on my Instagram and emails how it's like performing Umrah with a baby. I would love to share all about it here but I really don't have the luxury of time to write a proper post and publish it as soon as possible.For the time being, you can check out this short video of my trip. No lie, putting this video together made me very emotional. To say that I miss Mekkah and Madinah is really an understatement. There's never a day since I returned from the Holy Land that I don't think about my experience there and missing every single day of it.  :(

Bali and a Baby

Saturday, January 26, 2019

Back in September, I randomly asked Danna if he would like to go for a short vacation after we return from our Umrah. We immediately made a list off places-with-less-than-3-hours-flight and within minutes we decided on a beach vacay. Later we found great deal with SQ so we thought yes it's a sign from God that we deserve this vacay so we made the booking right away teeheee.  So fast. So random. So impromptu. & the place we've choosen is.........

BALI (as if the title is not obvious enough lol)

Danna bought an Osmo Pocket at the Departure Hall. (yet another random and impromptu decision!) We've already packed our Fujifilm camera and Go Pro Hero Black for the trip, so I thought with this new camera, we will have lotsssss and lotsssss of pictures right?


If you've been reading this blog since it started (is there even any? bahaha) then you've probably read about my first trip to Bali, blogged here. Just like the last time, I was plan-less. Only had the hotel and driver booked, and everything else is just us going with the flow.

Very bold for someone travelling with a baby, eh?

For our accommodation, we would love to stay in a villa but the ones we prefer are either damn ulu or mad expensive. So we chose The Haven Bali located at Seminyak. & of cos I just have to get a suite!


Pics from Agoda

Some pictures and highlights of the trip!





GOJEK.

My friends rave about this app whenever they're in Bali so of cos we just have to try it out too. We ordered our dinner every single night and the best thing is that it's super cheap. That also applies to their car rides. Initially we intended to use our car driver's service for all five days that we were in Bali but we ditch him for Gojek. heh.

KINTAMANI

We had a three hours car ride to Kintamani just to have lunch with this view. Honestly I don't think it's worth it at all cos 1) it rained 2) FLIES EVERYWHERE 3) I ended up not eating/enjoying much and.....


4) this girl vomited not once, not twice but thrice on our way here! On my brand new white pants T_T

We stopped over a wholesale shop to get this top for four bucks.

BALI SWING

Hands down the best part of the trip! Even thou I almost piss in my pants as soon as I sat on the swing lol 

PANDAWA BEACH


Probably the cleanest and most beautiful beach we've seen in Bali. Used to be a secret beach but now it's open to public with an entrance fee. We did nothing here but sleep on the beach bench cos the weather is just cray crayyyy.


Mini's first buggy ride! 
Off to the beach located just minutes away from our hotel. 


Also spent the entire time sleeping at the beach bench! Sia-sia book suite room lol


This was when we walked all the way from Kuta Beach to our hotel in Seminyak cos we want to avoid the mad traffic. Mini was sleeping through out the 4km walk phewwww


In a nutshell, both Danna and I agreed that Bali wasn't as enjoyable this time round with a baby in tow. But would we have done otherwise? Definitely not. Mini totally enjoy her time in Bali and that's all that matters for us!

Looking forward to our next vacay......probably in 5 year's time when Mini's old enough and don't need us to carry her around anymore HAHA.

Mini's Milestone : 15 Months

Saturday, January 5, 2019



I thought I would have more than enough time to work on this entry right after I got back from Bali but I was wrong. I used to think being a SAHM is such an easy peasy job and I will have all the time in the world to do anything I want once the baby is asleep. Again, so wrong. SO VERY WRONG -___-

Now that I'm back to work, a part of me is missing the precious 24/7 time I have with my baby but the other half of me is just glad I can finally have a break from her. I mean, just look at this.........


:'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''')

Anyhoots! Favourite highlights of Mini at 14 months!


Where we spent a lot of our time at during the hols - playground bawah block!
Lol at her grumpy cat expression. Like father like daughter lah this one!


With her BFFs at Aufa's first birthday party. Witnessed Khayla's first few steps!

& of course, hands down the best highlight from previous month goes to.........
