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…


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!


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



Hi all!!

Hopefully all of you are doing great beating Tuesday blues after a long weekend break! In my case, nothing new, I had to work over the weekend and coming back to work today.. oncall! By 9am today, I had 5 of my colleagues telling me that I look tired. Haha.. No worries, all fixed after my cup of coffee. Coffee is definitely my magic drug!

Anyway, that’s not my point.. I just wanna tell you what happened yesterday… Besides it was Merdeka day, I was post call. Had a bad ICU call the night before.. So when I came back home, finished some housechores, bathe my girls, did some Kumon worksheet with B,  feed them lunch, then my husband asked me to rest for a while. I must looked like a real zombie yesterday..  Haha..

My girls know they can play with ipad or phone only during the weekends. Tasha took my phone to watch her favourite kids story app. I was too tired to bother where did she went with the phone.

Guess where did she go?

She went to the bathroom, decided to flood the bathtub with water and the last thing my husband heard was Tasha screaming out loud because her diaper was burst filled up with water…. Kahkahkah!

OMG! I was glad nothing happened to her because she was alone in the bathroom and bathtub was almost full. I had a mini heart attack when I saw the water in the bathtub and thinking about when could have happened to her. Great great relief! Thanks to her burst diaper, she got scared. Hehe…

Owh.. and I forgot to mention, my phone was found next to the bathtub.. Wet!

I quickly googled “my iphone dropped into water, help”


So, the acute management for this kind of situation is..

#1 dry the iPhone with towel

#2 take out the sim card

#3 do NOT use hairdryer to blow dry the iPhone – almost.. almost did this! I was soo tempted!

#4 keep the iPhone is a ziplock bag full of rice. Apparently the rice will absorb the moisture from the phone.

#5 Check back after 3 days!

Hahahahaha.. yes, at least 3 days!

I don’t have 3 days! And I’m oncall today. I just can’t.. My husband called his Apple guy who somehow always have solutions to our Apple issues.. He opened up my phone, and tadaaaa.. it was full with water!

Currently my phone is still comatose and admitted to Apple ICU. I’m oncall today and I’m phoneless. I feel quite stressed up because I feel like I have no contact with the world.. you know, the instagram, whatsapp.. usual stuff :D I’m writing this from the hospital computer. and I have been writing emails to my husband too. Hahahaha..

The iPhone surgeon will update the condition of my phone this evening. Wish me luck. Whoever needs to post emergency orthopaedic case to me, please call OT straight.. Haha..

Have a nice day!


First Oncall

Last Sunday was my first time in UMMC. Obstetric theatre to be exact. It was only my day two going into the theatre and I was already oncall. First four days in UMMC was the orientation days.. (Yup, we were so disorientated, UM and UMMC is so big and we are so lost!) Then Friday was day one in OT, Saturday is a public holiday and Sunday my first oncall day!


But thats how we roll. To be honest, despite all the experience of working, moving to a new place and unfamiliarity with the system definitely stressed me up. I forgot where the maternity building is, I had to google Gloria Jeans UM to find the building. All I can remember is the coffee place! My goodness!

After hours of stressing up for no reason, S brought B and T to the hospital to visit mommy.. There’s a playground next to maternity building so they can play there. Tasha had too much fun. She refused to stay still, all I get is this blurry pictures of her busy playing…

And that’s B, eating dinner with mommy. Yup we had a picnic at the playground.

Their laughter definitely cheered me up. Now no more stress. Hahahaha..

S said I mengada-ngada ;) As if you don’t know me, S..

Owh, and guess what.. I’m oncall again today. But feeling much much better!


Hello UMMC!

Hi all!!

Guess what.. I’m starting my old new life, as a student! But this time, even worse, working and studying at the same time. *insert cry here* .. as if my plate is not full enough.

I’ve moved to UMMC to further my study. This is my first week, orientation week to be exact, hence the extra time to write to all of you ;) So far, it has all been great. The distance from home, the colleagues, the choice of food thats available inside and around hospital (if I had the time to go and eat! ;) ), coffee place (yup, that’s a criteria for a good hospital!)..

But the toughest of all is to fight for parking spot!! Hahaha… common issues in all government hospital I guess. The parking area is probably 1km away from the faculty. I’m saying goodbye to my heels. Hello flat shoes and owh.. Umbrella! Hahah.. I can’t believe I actually googled “pretty umbrella” and believe me there’s quite a number of pretty umbrella out there. All my life I only knew my dad’s golf umbrella! :D

Another solution to my parking problem is to get my husband to send me to work! Great! He can drop me at the hospital before going to work, and fetch me later in the evening. You know.. with the bike.. so we can be like the couple in that 80’s movie… Ali Setan!! Hahaha…

Gosh! So many new things going on with my life right now. I’m adjusting to it.. What I know for sure.. I miss this bunch from Selayang Hospital. That place is more that a work place to me. Selayang Anaesthesia Department is like my second family..

These are just part of them, more family members not in the picture.. Selayang people.. I know you miss me too… or maybe not! Wahahahahha..

Wish me luck!



Boycott Israel!!

This is the least we can do for them…

Somebody suggested me an app on the phone called “Buycott”. It’s so easy to use, you can choose any campaign that you are interested in..

I chose this one and another campaign to boycott Israel.. You just have to scan the barcode of the product that you want to check..

Then after few seconds, you’ll get this!

Taddaaa.. and you’ll put the product back on the shelf because you are NOT buying this!! ;)

There are sooooo many products that produced / supported by Israel. The Israelis control probably 70% on the world economy!! That is probably almost half of our household product. Not many of us gets the chances to physically be in Palestine to help them, but most of us, have the purchasing power of our household!! We are the ones who does the groceries shopping! And that means we have the power to BOYCOTT Israel!!

Yes, we do!!

If you’re wondering how to search for this.. just type “BuyCott” in the app store and look for this one..

Again and again, I want to put this up in my blog the product list by the Israelis. There are so many of them, if not all, if we can contribute some, that would be good. But I believe there’s always other options for each of their products.. ALWAYS!! The choice is yours!

These are the list of products by Nestle (Yes, only Nestle!!) Say goodbye to Milo ladies.. there’s always Vico! Nope, I have no share with Vico company!! I’m also looking for other options.

Forget Maggi mee!! They are one of the contributors under Nestle. Other options  for us are Ruski (made in Malaysia, Ruski Tomyam is my personal favourite!!) there’s also Mi Sedap (yang memang sedan!) and many more. As long as it’s not Maggi… Please. We don’t want to kill another Palestinians!! Nauzubillah..

Sorry Starbucks! Farewell. I’ll do fine with my Chatime!! Haha.. I’m not sure about The Coffee Bean and San Francisco Coffee. I haven;t found any evidence to support that they supported Israel. So, I guess if you must drink expensive coffee, there are still other options.. Haha..

And this bottle of coke… not a regular coke!! Check out the “shadow missile”. Yes, It’s a missile that used to kill other people!! And that includes Coke Light and Pepsi too!! Alternative? Well, I guess it’s a good thing also not to drink soda drinks at all, too much sugar!! :D 

And McD.. I believe many of us are aware of this. I noticed McD is relatively empty these days.. Well done!! Lets keep this up!!

Last week, there were rumours saying that Israelis already losing 40 billion from boycott campaign around the world.

People around the world are boycotting Israel for humanitarian causes! They kill civilians. It is genocide. In Malay term.. Israel nak hapuskan bangsa Palestine!!

If you still think it’s ok not to boycott their product. There’s some serious damage to your brain. So far, for the past 29 days of massacre, 1831 Palestinians were killed and 9400 injured! And most of them were children.

Look at this list of products under L’oreal.

I believe we must have one of products on our dressing table. Let’s stop buying all these! We always have other options like Chanel (woohoooo!!) and NARS! Do you know P&G also is one of Israel products?

Say buhbye to Febreze mommies.. from now on, all will be manually sental!! Hahaha…

Please, please, please, I beg you to do your part. Together we can do this. So many options out there. Besides, this is the time for us to start looking at our own product. Or maybe like Tun M’s idea years ago.. “Dasar Pandang Ke Timur” Cheewahhh… I feel so clever saying something like that! Hahaha… Let’s start support locals.. like this one..

Confirm tak support Israel!! ;)

Sorry I get too emotional writing about this. I have so much hatred for the zionist. Lets support Gaza!


P/s: Pictures are mine and some images from Google!

Is It Time?

OK mommies..
Let’s just straight to the point..
How soon do you wait for no 3?
I’m just curious. I wanted to have as many children as I can.. InsyaAllah but I think Bella and Tasha still needs attention in term of educating and managing them..
Tasha is 15 months now and B is turning 3 years old in 3 months time.
At home, my husband and I managed the girls ourselves even we have a kakak staying with us to help. And these two toddlers are quiet a handful. Bathing, feeding and play time really taking a lot of time. Night time is spent playing with them.. building blocks, pretend cooking, flash cards, play doctor and watching Doc McStuffin (hahah.. must teach them early!!) I haven’t watch Glee for soooo long! Hahaha.. American Idol? Forget it.. too much commitment!!
Imagine when I’m away and my husband doing this on his own..
(God, I’m so thankful for him!!)1-photo 1
This is what happened when I leave them with daddy..
All sorts of adventures.. Hahaha..
And now Tasha is at the stage where she wants to feed herself. The mess after meal is like..
*I have no word for it!*
and I keep telling myself “she’s learning.. let her learn..” over and over again.. Haha..
And if we leave them alone, they will definitely look for us.. There’s no where to hide at home. It’s like they have GPS tracking to look for us!! Trust them to stuff their face behind the glass door until we come and get them..
So, how long do you wait?
What’s your experience with having 3 children (and two hands to hold all three!) Haha..
