Erny’s Baby Shower

At PiecesByRaeesa Anonymous meeting..

“Hi, I’m Halina. I’m addicted to PBR’s clothes..”

Hehehehehe…

Not just me, I found out that a few of my colleagues are also PBR addicts.

We are… up to the extend that the owner of PBR becomes our good friend!

One of my colleagues, senior during UKM days organised a baby shower for Erny and the attendees are all PBR-fanatic doctors!! She is expecting a baby boy and her due date is today!!! (Check out the ribbon on her belly! Haha)

Probably you know these beautiful ladies..

(Lt-Rt : Syahrizan, Joanna, Halina, Erny, Tahirah, Anne)

We had so much fun, played games…

 

Yup, one of it is to finish this Ribena drink from the bottle. OMG that was NOT easy. We were given the smallest teats and it took forever to finish the drink! Hahaha.. I don’t dare to show you the video because my friends will kill me if I put it up here! Hehehe..

And we also had exam!!

Nah.. It wasn’t an exam but being a nerd coming from medical school, this is just typical competitive trait. We just have to answer all the questions CORRECTLY!! Hahah.. It was just some jumbled up words that we have to rearrange.. and some questions on nursery rhymes… (JE!! But we are just kiasu!!) Hahaha..

Anyway, by the time I’m writing this.. Erny still hasn’t delivered yet..

Wishing you a safe delivery, Erny.. so I can get the baju that I tempah cepat! Haha..

We love you!

Balleri-NOT

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!

I think.. He forgot about it!

I think my husband forgot our anniversary!

It’s today.. our 5th year wedding anniversary.. OMG! It’s only 5 years and he has forgotten?? Hahahahaha…

Up until third year I received flowers, 4th year I got a wish.. and 5th year.. forgotten?

I wished him “Happy Anniversary, S” early this morning before he left for work.. and suddenly I saw his face turning white a little with his jaw dropping on the floor… Hahaha.. Maybe not enough blood flow going to the head because he got a shock not remembering the wedding anniversary..!

Can’t help but laugh about it.. I guess this is real life marriage. We women remembering date and all the tiny details and the men.. they somehow keeps forgetting! Hahahha…

Last night I was awake from my sleep at around 4am, I heard him snoring.. I don’t know why I am not irritated with his snores. In fact, I feel blessed because I know he is still beside me, alive. Allah has given another day for us to be together.

Thank you Allah for this life, this man, these children..

I pray for rahmat and barakah in our marriage. I pray for good health, happiness, patience and wealth in our family.

I pray for our children, may they be a solehah, pious and obedient.

And I thank all of you for your well wishes all these while..

Alhamdulillah…

Planning and Planners

Believe it or not.. It’s already October.

Fuhhh… Time really flies, huh.. But do you know what that means?

That means we are almost at the end of the year..

 End of the year means new planner!! (or organizer or diary!! Whatever you call it!) Yay!!

Yup, that is my guilty pleasure.. (besides handbags and shoes! Hahahah..)

*wink*

I’m into planners.. well, to start with, I love planning.. I’m a type of person that likes to have everything planned, written on a paper and sometimes spontaneous things can irritate me.. Haha… I have all sorts of list. Check list, shopping list, books-I-want-to-read list, bag-wishlist, recipe-to-try list.. you name it!! And the joy of ticking the check boxes… Hehe.. I know it sounds silly.. but it makes me happy :)

Speaking about planners, I have tried many kind of planners for the past years.. I’ve tried Filofax, Erin Condren, MTN.. and I love it all!

Top most is my beloved Filofax’s The Original Organiser, middle one in my MTN Blue Edition and bottom most is the Erin Condren Life Planner.. Why I have so many planners? That is because I was trying to find which one suits me the most.. I’m busy ruling my kingdom, remember? Haha..

This is my Erin Condren for 2015 which I am using for home management and family stuff.. I had the cover personalised with our family name.. Muszaphar’s Family. All family members’ schedules are here. I know there’s only 4 of us (hehehehehe..) but it is so much fun to see all organised and written down nicely.. When is my oncall day, hubsy has to be around at home… When he is outstation, I can’t be oncall… Then comes the girls’  schedule. They have morning school, iqra’ school, swimming practise, Kumon, piano lessons… We, the parents (aka the driver) have to keep track you know! Hahaha.. And house chores.. not the routine ones.. the one that you do 4 monthly or 6 monthly.. like flip the bedroom mattress, or deep cleaning the freezer…. OMG who can remember that if it’s not written down? And the most important thing.. BILLS checklist!! See! Ruling a kingdom is not easy! Haha…

So, what this mommy gotta do now?

Buy a new planner for 2016!!

Hehehehe..

I have decided to continue using Erin Condren Life Planner for 2016. Just ordered mine and I found out that they have this free shipping at the value of USD9.95 until October 31, 2015. The cost for them to ship to Malaysia via Fedex is USD19.95. Since the sale is on, it will only cost us about USD10!! Big saving considering our Ringgit value is not too good nowadays.. (but this mommy still gotta plan, right?)

Check out http://www.erincondren.com for more info..

Happy planning!!

P/s: This is not a sponsored post. I’m just spreading the joy and happiness of planning and shopping! ;)

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…

Grrrrrr…..

Behind a Successful Woman…

Still in raya mode..?

Me no.. First day of raya, we decided to stay in and sleep..

Hahahah.. seriously. Sleep. That’s all. Meaningful.

Day 2 raya, I was already back at work..

Today, day 3 raya…

I’m oncall tomorrow, so today I have to vacuum, mop, laundry, ironing and the list goes on and on and on..

Have you heard the old saying…

Behind a successful man, there’s a woman..

But do you know..

Behind a successful woman, there’s a (reliable) maid!!

Trust me!

Hahah..

My beloved Kak Yah is probably having fun enjoying beautiful scenery in Ireland.. I heard she went shopping at Kildare Village.. Have fun Kak Yah!!

Yes I mean it!

And.. on top of these house chores.. Bella and Tasha keeps following me around, they are like my tails.. Talking tails!! Haha.. The girls really drives me crazy but I love them to bits!! They probably think I’m mad because I hug, tickle and kiss them after all the screaming scene.. Sometimes, even I myself think I’m mad.. Hehe..

OK, gotta go back to work. TTYL

New Work Station!

I’m maid-less right now!!

The kakak who stays with me is currently in Dublin. Yup, you got it right.. She is in Dublin, Ireland visiting my sister who gave birth about two weeks ago.. (We have a boy in the family… finally!! Hello Alfie!!)

So, here I am… like headless chicken running around. Haha… I just finished my Intensive Course which was … pretty intense! So much to catch up with work, study, house chores, family, hamsters…

Here’s my new work station.. No more proper table with book racks.. Hahahahah.. My new work station is at the laundry area near the kitchen.. I do laundry, fold, ironing, shop online, pay bills, read notes while folding clothes here!

Hahahaha…

A woman gotta do what a woman gotta do, right!

It’s the weekend and that was my first batch laundry. More to come, that means the pile is gonna grow.. Hehe… Wish me luck!

I need coffee now…
