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.
Haha..
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…

Kantoi!!

I rarely follow my hubsy whenever he has a talk or event but I’ve seen the videos and I know the the story by heart. Last week, was the UKM in Space event held where 3 other astronauts from Japan, Germany and Russia came down to join the event. It was a success, alhamdullilah.

UKM put up the video of the opening event on Youtube. I was excited to watch it.. but.. guess what I found…

Hahaha..

“but don’t tell my wife that..”

Sorry baby.. caught red handed this time!!

Now I know!!

Hahahhaha…

It’s a long video, if you have the time, go see a short video presentation recorded from ISS slotted during my hubby’s speech. It’s just breath taking. I cried first time I saw the video. I wanna go to space too!!!

What’s In My Bag..

I went to Putrajaya this morning but when I reached there, I got lost because I didn’t see the sign boards, it was raining heavily and my vision while driving was very poor. Suddenly I was near PICC (Hahaha.. nope, I wasn’t supposed to go there!) Called up hubs for help.. then he asked me to switch on my Waze.. I was like.. duhhh.. why didn’t I think of that earlier :D

Anyway, when I reached the place that I wanted to go, it was still raining.. I needed an umbrella. Unfortunately, I left mine at home.. (why oh why..) the only umbrella that I have in my car way B’s Pororo umbrella. Hahaha.. I can’t go to government office in Pororo umbrella right? ;) So, there I was, stucked in my car while waiting for the rain to stop…

I was bored..

So, I did this video… I wanted to try this new app.. Hyperlapse where I can speed up the video faster..

Check this out.. Its called.. “what’s in my bag..”

I use Gin&Jacqie handbag organiser to make sure my bag doesn’t look or feel like a black hole. I’m a freak when it comes to organising stuff. Haha.. You can get yours here.

I have to have my note book. I have all this note taking apps what not on my phone but sometimes I just want to be traditional. Writing down ideas / my to-do / to-buy list is still the best. I got that note book from MPH. It comes with a very good advice from the bad girl next door.. Marilyn Monroe. She said.. “It’s better to be ridiculous than to be boring” ;D

Then, my card holder where I keep whatever cards I have, like membership cards, or discount cards.. And the pen.. Of course no point having a notebook without a pen.. and lipstick. My favourite lipstick brand is NARS. I have moved on from all these Israelis supporting products. I just don’t have the heart to buy anything that supports them. Even my trustworthy SKII. Yes, I am that fanatic. Geezzzz..

Moving on to sunglasses. Must have but rarely wears it. Haha.. and my Macbook compact mirror!! ;) Hubsy saw that one online and he ordered one for me!! So thoughtful ;) Haha.. And of course, my green reusable foldable groceries bag. Just in case if I need to go for emergency groceries shopping, I can help safe the world by not using plastic bag!! Yup, keep the world green for our children!! Haha..

On the inside, facial tissue, purse and iPad Mini.. I keep many books in my iPad Mini. Easy to read and carry around..

So, there you go.. What’s In My Bag..

What’s in yours??

Take care..

PD Ostrich Farm

Remember I posted this up on my Instagram?

Last weekend was super fun!!

My husband insisted we go for a quick holiday. The girls needed a break from the city life!! Hahaha.. yeah, right! So, we decided to go for a short getaway in PD. 

When we arrived there, my husband asked me to check out this place called “PD Ostrich Farm”. I was like…”Seriously there’s ostrich in PD?” So, I googled…
It was nearby to the hotel that we stayed, somewhere in Teluk Kemang.. After checked in, changed the girls diapers, then off we go to the ostrich farm…
My first impression..
“Hmmm… they could do better with the deco. Let’s give it a chance first..”
This place looks like kampung houses style, but with deco here and there. It gives you the kampung vibes.. Nice for a change..
We were greeted by ducks and geese (in a gated area, of course!!) and goats!! (I proudly fed the goat myself with my own bare hands!! That was part of my proud moment of the day!!)
Then there was also baby chicks and ducklings in their houses.. Oh my God… Bella went “Mommy, mommy I want baby chick!!” she actually wanted to bring it back!! She promised she will feed it, bathe it and sleep with the baby chick!! Hahaha… Dream on, Bella ;) And Tasha, as usual, she’s quite cool and calm..
There was also donkeys which were trained to take photograph with visitors. That means, they won’t kick you with their hind legs when you come near them ;)
That’s T watching the guy bathing the donkey..
And check this out!!! Haha..
She must have gotten it from her mommy!!
Except that Tasha looks super cool and mommy looks like chicken! Haha..
If you’re wondering where’s Bella..
That’s her favourite…
Too much of drama when we wanted to go home. She actually wanted to stay with the animals there.. Haha.. Don’t even think about it… balik!!
Is it worth going? Yes, it’s good for children.. very educational. And they get to pet and play with the animals. Much better than seeing on Youtube!!
How do you find it.. Go google PD Ostrich Farm!

I’m so blessed. Alhamdulillah..
