MomMe Time?

Hey there... 
As i said earlier... i wished  i could consistently rant here because you know why? no matter how perfect your life is, you still need somebody to share and to talk to... and in my case,i choose to express it here! hahah

I consider writing here as having some ME time. yes, ME time! ME time is actually having to have you spend your time doing what YOU like! When it comes to ME time... I frankly envy those who are single, or even working moms because no matter what... you managed to have your ME time... eh, i bukan benci..cumanya macam ala ala eh syoknya korang... ya maybe some moms might think that i'm creepy sebab i have the opportunity to stay at home and play with the kids while some moms have to spend their 8 to 5 pm daily at the office.. but on a brighter side mommies who work, you at least have the chances to wake up, dress up, lunch with your friends or even if you are lucky you can join ur husband kalau workplace dekat and so on.. while us? the stay-at-home mom (SAHM) have to just deal with laundry, cooking, feeding and playing with the baby that actually don't stop at 5pm... truth be told, i salute those working moms who still handle housechores after office hours..korang memang power..kalau bagi kat i...memang tora tora la jawapnyaaa...





So..yes.. now.. I have two boys who are happily growing up and have no idea how exhausted, tiring yet meaningful their mom was and currently... and for me to have a ME time to macam waiting for a miracle to happen ok!

I'll tell you why!

MAKAN
Before Kahwin / Masa Kerja (BKMK): I enjoyed going out for lunch with my colleagues, sanggup jalan jauh jauh as to explore food and to isi perut.. panas terik pun aku redah ok...kalau rajin, hujung minggu mesti je rajin nak bukak buku resepi and masak itu ini...busuk busuk pun mesti prepare special breakfast for hubs... 

Lepas Ada Anak (LAA): kau nak makan tu ibaratkan kau kena tunggu vip semua settle down tau kat conference atau event yang kau anjurkan... sebab sekarang ni you are talking about two kids,two ok! so if satu dah bangun, satu lagi tido.. then if satu tu teman aku makan kat bawah, yang lagi sorang akan meraung macam kalah bola sepak untuk kau datang and dukung dia (selalunya si Abang lagi over dari Adek).. so bila kau dapat chance untuk makan, kau akan LAHAP.. bukan makan dah... hahaha...ok, buruk lantak? ha...besok dah jadi housewife n a mother tahu la kome!


MANDI
BKMK: Come on lah... you have your own sweet time to mandi, buat concert bagai dalam toilet...boleh main pilih shampoo apa nak pakai, sabun tu jenis sabun buku ke sabun foam ke atau liquid ke...eh ada masa lebih why not scrub? atau fefeeling bawah air panas tu gitu kan..sambil lukis lukis kat cermin guna jari sebab adanya wap dari air panas tu ye dak? cakap je...nak mandi pakai bau stoberi, bluberi, peach eh segala la boleh..takde siapa akan stop...busuk busuk pun 20 minit kau sorang je kannn dalam tu...

LAA: Cerita dia...kalau kau nak enjoy mandi mcm BKMK, kau kena make sure kau bangun awal..lepas subuh atau sebelum subuh tu je kau dah mandi bersuriram ram ram dalam toilet.. kalau tak nanti masa kau mandi nanti ada entiti ketuk pintu bilik kau, pastu bila kau baru je nak layan air panas, kau terdengar si kecik nangihhhhh...time for susu BOnda!!!! haa...pastu bab bau bau sabun ni,,,apa boleh capai je der..pernah aku shower and shampoo pakai Pureen Kids' Head to Toe Apple..kau mampu? waktu aku mandi: Kalau lepas 10 minit tu memang aku dah bersyukur habis la...nak mandi lelama kena tunggu hubs balik after 6pm..dia leh tengokkan bebudak ni...


SHOPPING
BKMK:Dunia ini ana yang punya...caakap je nak apa...ambik, bayor. kalau nak tatap produk lelama kat Watsons or Guardian pun takpe...tu memang hobi sampinganku... hahaha

LAA: Kau jangan berangan derrrrr.... kau beli apa yg patut je... sebab apa anak anak dah ikut...kejap ada la budak kata nak ni..nak tu... kan? pastu lagi sorang merengek sebab tak nak duduk dalam stroller...ahhhhh kau rasaaaaaaaa??  selalunya aku macam fed up jadi aku buat list barang, and get hubs to buy... beserta dengan gambor sebenar kat Whatssap.. bukan apa! kaum lelaki ni jenis straight forward kau tau... kau suruh dia beli facial wash Safi misalnya..kalau kau tak bgtau dia yg mana, and dia bawak balik benda yg bukan kau nak...aku rasa memang boleh jadi World War tu! 


SOCIAL MEDIA
BKMK: Kau boleh je ada masa nak post selfie, atau bila pergi makan.. ada plak satu kegigihan dan inspirasi untuk tangkap gambar makanan yang kau makan..and paling sweet skali bila you always post pictures of you and hubs..indahnya doniaaaaa

LAA: hahahahaha....I dont even have much time to focus on my socmed as my eldest is always 'Mama Look, Mama Look' selagi aku tak pandang selagi tu la dia bunyi macam burung kakak tua...but nevermind la..he's always cute to me...heheh..and yes, gambar pun dah tentu la gambar anak anak yang kita post kan...sampai ada satu time tu..hubs kata 'Gambar kita dah tak banyak kan.'... haih,,,sayu pulok hati ni!


As for now rasanya ni je i can think of... banyak lagi sebenarnya... kalau ada masa aku sambung lagi okayyyyy :D

Yet i am glad that at least writing here is how i spend my ME time! Blessed! :D

Belated Raya Aidil Fitri 2017

Salams... 

It is now August and soon, Aidiladha is coming real soon! But here I am, updating my Raya 2017 moments with you here :D 

Well.. where should i start ye? Okay.. this year is to celebrate raya in Putrajaya as hello? follow the rotation ok? supaya aman makmur and nobody injured dengan any periuk belanga or mercun pop pop yang dibaling kerana tak puas hati nak rayo rumah mak sendiri..hahaha! 

As usual, when it's time to celebrate Raya in Putrajaya... we always have my MIL's siblings from Johor and Melaka to come over and celebrate with us here... I am so very much thankful because I love to have so many people celebrating raya..because ye lah RAYA kot! takkan nak sendu pintu kereta sedan sorang sorang kat tepi katil and dengar lagu raya thinking that it must be sedih when you can choose to be happy, kan? I mean.. life is about choices and making decisions... so choose lah happy..kenapa nak choose tak happy ye dak? :D 

So, this year... my hubs and his brothers requested for this kak min to prepare shell out dishes...haih...sebab kuasa viral kan...jadi akak pun menurut perintah la ye.. and i am glad that everyone enjoys it.. syukur, suka ok! :D 

Bila dah raya tu....dah semestinya nak tangkap gambar kan... so yes, my husband memang sejenis yang bila ramai orang baru lahhhh dia nak keluarkan kemera dia yang sebenarnya canggih but he prefers to simpan dibalik almari baju di hari hari biasa.. mampu jah? ha... dah member nak keluarkan kamera bagai... ahkak pun kena la posing.. bukan posing tapi plan and prepare la diri untuk posing.. :D 

For those who are close to me, i mean those who really know me, like pernah sembang
 and lepak and kira kenal lah (*kau ingat kau pemes ke tuan blog*), akan tahu yang I CANNOT WEAR MAKE UP! yes, i cannot! why? sebab keringat ku yang memang sekejap je boleh memenuhi aquarium 10litre... so akak rasa elok la i just dab some baby powder, eyeliner and lipbalm, or kalau nak glamour sikit.. letak la liptip... akak bukan tak pernah mencoba untuk menjadi seorang hijabista, tapi setiap kali percubaan akak, akan end up sebagai habislanak.. huhu 

So yes.. bila bergambar ni... memang seronok..tapi beb bila kau ada anak kecik...pergh...seronok dia beronok ronok sebab time tu la kau nak posing, time tu la anak kau tak nak let go botol dia .. time kau tengok kamera, time tu lah dia nangis nangis atau 'tertido'... and anak anak aku tak terkecuali dari benda ni semua ok.. 

Muka akak dah tak kuasa nak pujuk dah after attempt ke 10654759 belas juta kali suruh dia senyum :D 


Ha.. yang ni dah picture perfect...tapi...nampak tu?asal tu tudung tetibe tukar warna? KERINGAT!!!! haih



Tu bab bergambar.. and when it comes to food, you won't be enjoying much as asalkan makan je sebab you kena bersiap sedia nak p kejar anak u and at the same time you want to feed the baby.. :D

Haih,, whatever it is, this is going to be such memorable for me...and kids, when you grow up.. you will know that you guys have given me so much fun! :D 

So...here's a picture that would be appropriate la kan for the album :D Selamat Hari Raya from Us : Yasmin. Raqeeb, Rauf and Hafiz :D




I am back and...

Salam everyone...
Greetings and hello~

This has been way such hiatus for me to get back the groove and keep sharing here... other than procrastinating, I have to say that being a homemaker and a mom full time has stolen  most of my time there... things like laundry, cooking, feeding, playing with the boys (*yes, I have now 2 boys with me - the first one is 29 months-old while the youngest one is going to be 5 months old at the end of this month)..

Things have changed rapidly.. in a way that I had never had any thoughts thinking about how tough life would be to put away your career, your passion but to focus on your children and do what's best for them...and you never know you will be developing new things that you can never imagine developing!

At first I thought that it's not necessary for me to share what I experienced here but thinking about  how roller coaster my life is right now - well not to say later it will not be any more... i know, very well that this journey has just started.. i figure, "hey why not for me to share it here? Well, not only to those who follow my blog, but for MY kids.yes, they need to  know the many of colours they have contributed in my life and also my husband's".. 

Therefore... please watch this space for more ups and down adventures with me... and perhaps i just need to make it clear that this is my playground... so i write what i write la ok? don't be emo, don't be too judgemental.. like what old people always say... things happen for reasons, and never think that everyone who shares the same shoe has the same heart. eh?





:)

Love,
Min

Raya 2016

Salam!

Yes, orang dah masuk bulan baru, even nak masuk Raya Haji dah soon but gatal nak update pasal Raya Aidilfitri 2016.

Our theme is YELLOW. Entah kenapa encik somi kata nak warna kuning? aku layankan aje lah....


One for the record. Oh ya, ARW tu tengah emo sebab gigi nak tumbuh sekali 2. Anak orang lain salam je orang dipagi raya, tapi anak aku dengan skema nye menampor semua orang yang nak carry dia atau even cuba dekat dengan dia... And ended siapa yang perlukan simen nak ratakan muka tu? Of course Bonda and Abi dia.. hahahah :D Takpe lah anak, nasib baik la orang faham... kalau tak idok ler kamu dapat duit raya ye!



Just feel like making a COMEBACK: Kes Beranak Dolu

Salam and Hello!

Lama nyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee tak update anything here! I just realised that it was such a long time since I shared things here! So, baru baru ni saje terlintas nak bukak blog address ni (*kot la ada terdelete ke atas sebab owner malas and sangat kekura nak type kan*), I still receive such hits by viewers! Thank youu! 

So, Here I am.. making a comeback because I know the life that we live is only once and we need to cherish every moment in life.. :)

But before I start with updating about life and moving forward to start afresh with mah belog, I really need to make things clear about my previous birthing story okay? Since I have been receiving tons of personal emails asking me about the cost of delivery in Tropicana Medical Centre, I guess it would be fair for me to just share it here... okay? I am sorry and apologize that I am not able to reply email sorang sorang walapun some people can just say 'Ek eleh, copy je lah dari sent items and then hantor le balik".. A'ah mak cik, betul sangat... tapi that's not me.. I do think everyone deserve a good treatment kan? But again, I am sorry and I am not able to reply one by one.. but I will only share with you details here ok? 

Just to share that when I gave birth to my firstborn, it was before GST. Therefore, I can't give you any specific amount now as the best suggestion is to get the information straight from the hospital.. hehe! Don't worry, they are all very friendly and approachable ok? :) 

So during my time, the cost of normal delivery starts from RM3K and maximum is RM5K, while c-sect starts from RM5K to tak sure berapa.. but please take note that this is only for the delivery charge, ya? the nursery charge is different, tak silap i starting from RM1k. So, dari situ you guys can estimate la around berapa ye dak?

However, for the current price I am so sorry that I do not know what's the range like... hehe!


I hope this gives some ideas and estimation la berapa agak agak now ek? 


Okay then, to the viewers who are with me because of my crazy babbles, I can never thank you enough. But for those who stopped by to know the cost of my delivery. this is is the best that I can help...okay? hehe! 

Have a great day!



That's me and Dr Arifah - once upon a time :) at 36weeksbuyong

Never Underestimate Natural Remedies..

Assalamualaikum.. 

As a mom.. Definitely I want the best for my child.. Lately, ARW asyik batuk, selsema.. Don't know what went wrong.. Was it because of the formula milk? Was it because of the orang orang tua said that he is growing up and so developing new habit/skills? Entah lah nak.. Kalau bawak kat doktor, mesti dia kata Viral Fever.. Macam ada kat satu hospital I went earlier this year.. The MO leh cakap "budak demam takde kena  mengena dengan tumbuh gigi.. Ni semua viral fever"- walhal memang masa tu ARW nk tumbuh sekali 4 gigi oi! Tapi siapalah aku untuk melawan doctor? Kan kans.. Redho sajeeee! 

So.. Berbalik pada recently.. Last week was truly challenging tau.. ARW is not well.. Hubs pulak ckp "Bagi dia makan ubat".. Ok, akur and bagi. 

Tapi after a few days tengok keadaanN ARW sama je.. I was like? Kenapa eh? Kata dah bagi makan ubat batuk.. Mesti lah boleh heal kan? 

Masuk third day dia on ubat tu, that's it..i decided to go all natural.. Lantak la orang nak kata I degil ke ape.. Tapi I do think that the meds were too much for him and it's time for me to not depend on the ubat only...

So.. Hasil research at google and conversations with experienced moms, aku nekad nak buat these to my baby; lemon bathing, calit kunyit kat batang hidung, wap/stim dalam toilet, stim breathing with garlic and olive oil, and last but not least to tampal honey wraps kat chest ARW memalam masa dia tido! 

Tau, sedar je orang kata I ni gila and berani je nak buat kan.. Tapi i doa and tawakkal kat Allah.. Alhamdulillah, wothin three days of treatment.. ARW is recovering.. And up til today, dia ada batuk skit skit je..  Jadi jangan pandang rendah tau! :) 

Nanti kalau i ada masa, i will write down the steps that I have taken for the natural remedies for ARW okayyyy :) 

Remember, some medicines are harmful for the kids.. It may not be seen now, but who knows in the future? Wallahualam!

#akunakkurus: progress :)

Salam :) 

I have mentioned in my previous post that there will no longer be empty vessel.. Dah tak nak cakap je habuk pun takde kan? 

So yes, I am determined to have a healthy lifestyle.. At the moment, jumlah pengurangan berat tak banyak, tapi I can feel the difference in the shape, contour of the body.. Waist is slightly, or very slightly small.. Chin's double chins is not really round now.. Haha! 

What have i been doing? I did not cut down my rice, noodles or pasta.. No! i kena makan, kalau tak makan where to gain energy kan? :) tapi quantity tu berpada pls!
 


I am now practising healthy lifestyle as much as I could.. Saying no to fast food bukan mudah ye tapi percaya lah, those are the factor that hinders weight loss.. 

My best friend now is my water bottle. The least i drink daily is 2.5 litre.. Aiming for more actually as it helps to burn calories more when you workout, urinate and so on..and, i am trying very hard to cut down my sugar intake.. Huhu nightmare lah benda manis nii

Exercise routine ni lahh yang den lomah tapi kalau makan tak exercise pun tak boleh.. Jadinya at the moment I am focusing on workouts like bicycle crunches, planks, squats and lot of jumping - fun to do would be star jump! 

Next, nak cuba lari lari pulak..
Kalau tak boleh, kita jalan laju kan.. Hehe.. Who's with me? Chaiyok!!
