Cakap Melayu

Last night, my husband told me.. “Bella doesn’t understand Malay”

and I was like.. “Come on.. That’s ridiculous. She understands Malay! Not so bad you know..”

“But she doesn’t know what mata is!”

Suddenly I feel dizzy…

Then I went to her bedroom.

“Bella, do you know what ‘ainun’ is? It’s a arabic word”

“Eyes, mommy”

“Do you know what is ‘mata’?

She ignored me.. OK that’s it. Who taught her ainun means eyes.. and forgot to teach her it’s also ‘mata’!!

Then I went back to my husband.. “We have to speak Malay to her.. We have no choice..” Hahahaha…

Then I went back to her room..

“Bella.. Tasha, mari tukar baju. Sudah malam, masa untuk tidur”

Hahahaha… what is wrong with my language! But I need to teach her proper Malay language, right? She is only 4 and a half. We still have time before she goes to sekolah kebangsaan… We can do this! Hahaha…



Hi all!!

If you followed me on Instagram, you probably noticed I posted about sending B and T for a ballet trial class about two weeks ago.. We just trying our best to expose them to new stuff, fill up the time and energy and who knows they might have talent in ballet (there’s probably a 0.000005% chance they do!! Hahaha..)

Besides, I was thinking.. if I had to send the girls to ballet every week, might as well I just take up ballet myself!! (My husband literally rolled on the floor laughing at my optimistic & brilliant idea!)

Anyway, that, people.. was to no avail.. Hahaha.. I figured out my girls need ‘fine tuning’. Hahaha.. (and probably me too!)

They are just being kids.. Kids just wanna have fun!

First time seeing the bar on the wall. Not knowing what to do, T climbed it like how she does on the monkey bar.. both hands and legs up on the bar. Hahahaha… She almost gave the ballet teacher a heart attack, the teacher had to run to get her before she falls down.. I wasn’t allowed to be inside so I can only take pictures (and laugh) from the small tiny square window on the door..

This video was recorded from outside the ballet hall, so the noise that you hear is from the other kids playing outside the hall.

See how graceful and elegant my girls are.. Hehe…

The week after the trial, B was accepted to join the class, but T was a little to small and she has to wait until next year.. (that’s very nice of them for not saying T is super active and out of control! Hehehe..)

Anyway, during B’s first proper ballet class.. she confessed that she actually has no interest in ballet. She cried in the class and only finished it halfway..

Now I can confirmed that 0.000005% chance is actually 0%. So ballet now out of the list! And no ballet for mommy too *sad*

Probably I should look for karate class next!


Lets Go To M, Mommy..

Yesterday, Bella told me, “Mommy, lets go to M. I think you, me, daddy and Tasha should go to M”. Alright, this is challenging.. I don’t even know what place is she talking about. So, I asked her some more.. “What’s M?”

“Urrmmm.. It has ice cream and nuggets. All my friends go there..”

Can you guess?

Then I showed her this logo..

“Is this your M, Bella?”

“Yes mommy!! Yesss! You are so smart”

(I like the compliment part!)

Yeah, she is asking me to bring her to McDonald!!

Whoever introduced her to McDonald…


Where’s Mommy?

Mamatuk came to visit her grandchildren at our house. She asked my little T…

Mamatuk : Tasha, where’s daddy?

Tasha : Aeroplane.. (she thinks her daddy is outstation)

Mamatuk : Where’s your mommy?

Tasha : Shopping!


That’s my child there, people!!

Short Getaway : Langkawi

Hi all!!

Hope all of you are doing great! Since next week is a long holiday, Chinese New Year, school break and all.. We decided to go for a quick holiday prior to the long holiday. Less people, less crowded. Haha… We chose Langkawi this time. We wanted to bring the girls to the beach. We have been to PD quite often and since mommy has a long leave (and that is 4 precious days!! Yup, 4 days is long for me!) So we decided to go somewhere a bit far from home.. Langkawi sounds like a good option.

Took the flight (arrived safely alhamdullilah!) and we stayed at Westin Hotel over the weekend. First, when we arrived, we found this in our room..

There were many more size bites chocolate. Tasha ate all! Hahahaha.. Only this one left for photography! And that is Bella’s finger, trying to steal more chocolate before mommy can snap photo! Behind the marzipan (the  white thing is called marzipan, right?) is a super delicious, rich and moist chocolate cake that kept us digging for more. Perfect cake, Westin!! I’m bringing back extra kilos on my thigh because of this cake!!

After cake, what did we do?

Yup, can’t wait for the sun to set. We are already at the beach..

This girl.. just didn’t care about the sun.. as long as she gets to play..

We rented a car from the hotel..

Super cute convertible Mini Cooper to enjoy Langkawi sea breeze! B and T loves it, but of course, there’s a reason it’s called Mini.. because it’s mini in size! Here’s my girls.. lying down in the car…

Legs up, folded! Hahahha..

Since we have very limited time in Langkawi, we chose to go only to two places that we thought the kids might enjoy.. And of course, it has to involve animals! My girls will go gaga when they see animals. First place that we went the next day is the Underwater World.

Bella and Tasha were super excited! They went berserk.. hahaha.. Running here and there, throwing tantrum when we wanted to leave the penguin aquarium. I think they secretly want to live with the penguins..

S is a certified diver. He used to dive a lot and he knows so much about sea creatures. All types of sharks, anemone and all these funny funny looking fish, he knows. Hopefully B and T will follow him, rather than mommy (who goes to the beach, lie down but avoiding the sun while sipping my pina colada, hahaha..)

The next place we went was the Wildlife Park.. Awesome place to bring the kids.

Bella trying to feed the crocodile with daddy’s help.. See, see.. B is pushing the chicken tied to the rope to feed that crocodile (with daddy’s help, of course!)

And that is her again… pretending to be brave to feed the hornbill. OK, she didn’t feed the hornbill. Daddy did it. Hahaha.. 

This one. the girls did it themselves. Vege buffet for the rabbits!

Check this out…

The normal peacock and the albino peacock!! Subhanallah, they are beautiful! Guess what, these two breeds mate.. (not exactly these two, these are male peacock. Just in case you didn’t know, in animal kingdom, always the male one is more attractive to lure the female) and they produce this..

OK, this is a female mix breed of those two above. Check out the colour!! The royal blue.. I’m so inspire for my baju raya this year!! Yup, inspired by a mixed breed peacock!! Hahahaha..

Hah!! There you go… I was probably a peacock in my previous life! Hahaha.. (the previous life part, is just a joke, just in case you want to argue with me! :p)

There goes our one whole day, spending times with animals. B and T had fun. If you get the chance, bring your children to visit these places. I’m sure they will love it and there’s a lot to learn even for us, adults!

Till then, happy holiday and Happy Chinese New Year to all celebrating.


Barely Supermommy Update!!

Hi all!! OMG January 2015 is almost over! Believe it or not!! And Hi again.. I’m back! After two exams in December and last week. I’m back here. Writing. Missing all of you!! I hope 2015 is treating you well.
After almost 3 months of disappearing, I have a lot to tell. OK, maybe not all.. Only the important once ;)
First, we start with Little Big Sister, Bella.. She’s 3 and a half now. And she just started Kumon. Haha.. Yes, we are that kiasu. Our plan is to grab as much opportunity as we can in her first seven years of life because the brain develops the most during these first seven years. These years are crucial. So, we send her Kumon and Mandarin class after school. Alhamdullilah, she loves it! She loves it so much wanting to go to class everyday, last week, she cried wanting to go to Kumon class. OMG! Haha..
*P/S : we have no share with Kumon company!
You know how Kumon gives worksheet to do everyday at home. I get the concept. Learning is a continuous process. So, me and husband both taking turns to teach her. The worksheet is fun and functional, it has pictures and puzzles and dot-to-dot games. Bella thinks its a game. Haha.. But no more outing at night for us unless B finishes her worksheet :p
She’s also back to swimming, getting better with her kicking. Don’t get me started on Tasha, always trying to jump in the pool. Occasionally gives mommy mini heart attack. Alhamdulillah she is so active!!
Tasha just celebrated her second birthday on January 19. She is two! MasyaAllah how times flies. I still remember how small she was, born underweight, stayed in NICU for two weeks. Look at her now! Climbing and jumping everywhere!! Her personality really reflects her name “Natasha” which means strong. I’m so grateful to Allah for blessing her with good health. She started schooling as well. She goes to same school with Bella.
Check out Tasha’s eyes in the photo above! So funny and big!! Hahah..
Her first day at school, her daddy sent both of them. At the gate, she ran into the school and did not turn back!! Not even a hand wave. I’m quite sure she has been eyeing Bella’s school for quite sometimes… Hahaha..
I’m not sure whether her daddy feel sad or proud at that time :D
Remember my husband put up on his FB about B and T wanting kittens? We wanted to rent kittens for them, just for the school holiday! Hahahha.. The response was amazing. But we decided to start with baby chics first!! So we bought three baby chics for pasar in Jalan Pudu and brought them home. B and T went crazy about the baby chics! The moment they woke up, first question was..”Where’s my baby chics?”
The baby chics lasted for 5 days in our house, then we gave them away because they poo poo too much :D
Me, aka mommy, was super busy with exams. My kind-hearted husband brought the girls away to PD for half a week just to give me time alone at home to study. Yes, I studied, that lasted for 3 days, then I drove to PD to stay with them. Haha.. I’m such a clingy mommy!
S, aka my husband, was so supportive, he took care of the girls.. and bake cake for me for my birthday. He made it with my two girls. Well… I admit it wasn’t the best cake ever but the effort is priceless. Made with love! Even I think my job as his assistant is more tiring than him baking the cake :D He will go.. “Can you get me the spatula”, “Where’s the butter”, “Alamak bowl pecah”, “Can you heat the oven”, “Kacau kan ni buleh?” and at the same time I have to make sure my girls doesn’t dip their hand into the mixer.
Few weeks ago, he had photoshoot with the girls for S26 (the milk, just in case if you didn’t know :p) Mommy wasn’t allowed to come because I’m such a distractor!! Hahahha… The girls will go “Mommy, look at me! Look at me!” all the time and they are not gonna finish the photoshoot session. Haha..
Then S, sent me this…
OMG I freaked out!! Why are they touching my girls face!! But knowing Bella who loves to play with my make up, she would have enjoyed that. Hahaha…
Have you seen the S26’s video of FB. Check it out here. When I look at Bella in this video, I feel like she is so small, like little kid and now.. Can you just pls stop growing girls…
