Raya 2016

Selamat Hari Raya

Maaf Zahir & Batin.. Hope I’m not too late!
Anyway, hope everybody is enjoying their Syawal and open houses and puasa 6 and catching up with family and friends!

Ours was great to our likings. We had a quiet raya time after a hectic Ramadhan. Raya morning.. we missed solat sunat. B decided to have diarrhoea that morning! Poor girl, she was just quiet and resting. Very unlike herself. The moment we arrived the masjid, we saw the masjid was filled up to the staircase and already on tahiyat akhir. So, yeah… We will try again next year insyaAllah..

Went straight to my MIL’s after that, whacked raya food, salam-salam mintak maaf, collected duit raya for my girls and then straight to my parents house in Seremban. We left KL quite early, before noon and traffic was good. My brother from Dublin is back for raya. So there was three of us celebrating raya this year, missing my sister and her family in Dublin. We are back in KL by dinner time and it’s time to pack!!

Langkawi here we come!!

In Langkawi, we stayed at Ombak Villa of Langkawi Lagoon. OMG that place is like heaven… The water villa was ah-may-zing!!! We decided to spend our first day there just sleep and do nothing.. Hehe..

My two girls are definitely animal lovers. They really enjoy petting animals and playing with them. B is already asking us whether she can have her own farm.. I almost fainted. Can’t believed I’m raising a farm-girl! Hahhahah…

A must visit for us.. is the Langkawi Wildlife Park.

This is our second time here. They allowed their visitors to feed and play with the animals. B got the chance to feed the crocodiles during our previous visit because we were there during their feeding time.

B was busy feeding the rabbits while T fishing at the fish pond. Maybe we can have a farm in few years time. Hehe..

New thing we tried this time… Horse riding!! Tasha is a big fan of horses (and dinosaurs!) She loves to collect all sort of horses (and dinosaurs!) figurines. Since she is big enough, daddy decided to bring the girls (and mommy) for horse riding..

IMG_2484

The place is called Perdana Stable, somewhere nearby Telaga Tujuh. B and T were really looking forward to it, mommy on the other hand, got a little too scared but too shy to show it to them. Hahahah..

B & T super ready for their horses!!

Mommy bagi salam dulu to my horse. Hahaha.. Somehow my husband has this talent which able him to take my photo at my worst moment! Haha..

We signed up for a 15 minutes horse ride which equals to 3 hours of mommy’s time! I was hoping no horse avalaible for me but the possibility is quite slim since there were about 50 horses there. Haih…

It was pretty scary initially. It’s all about balancing… The girls who took me around (who hold my horse so it will not run and freak me out) was good. I’m pretty calm with her around. She told me that the horse can sense fear. Hahaha.. (My horse’s name is Anteriana btw..) Why Anteriana why.. I keep telling myself to keep calm, malu if I freaked out in front of my girls. Hahaha.. We went around the stable area, some jungle that made me feels like Arwen the Elves from Lord of The Rings!

Yup… that is Liv Tyler as Arwen in LOTR! Hahahahaha… I was already speaking the elves language but my husband doesnt understand me (in my imagination, he is Gandalf ๐Ÿ˜…!!)

B and T were pretty cool. T was soooo cool she was busy trying to pluck leaves from the trees above her. OMG young lady, hold on tight to your horse, please. My husband, he knows how to ride a horse so, no big deal for him..

IMG_2643

Surprisingly, it was not bad at all. I knew I like it the moment I got that elves feeling. Haha.. My girls loved it so my husband booked another session the next day. This time, for 1 hour and they will bring us to the beach. Yay!! I can be elves again!!

The second time we went, it was all good. I loved it! T was a little too calm until she fell asleep on her horse. B loves it. Now she wants a farm with horses. Huh..

Anyway, it was a fun experience for all of us. If you asked me to do this again. Yes, I would. Would I go for proper horse riding class? Maybe not. My plate is pretty full for now, but if my girls were interested, yes I would allow them…

#instagramhusband

I’m on a mission!!

Mission #1 To take lots of OOTD [#drhalinalookbook] for MyAdinda

Mission #2 To turn my husband into #instagramhusband

Hehe.. who else gonna help me with my OOTD, right? He is the only one available for me 24/7. Besides, he promised to do anything and everything for me. Well, he didn’t exactly say that but that’s what marriage is all about, right? Haha..

So, today he helped me with the camera..

OK cantik.. it would be nice kalau nampak kaki..

Yup, almost there, S…

Tasha pulak photobombed this picture..

And from the back…

SONY DSC

Not bad at all!! Hehe..

This gorgeous Medhuri Saree from KupadioKL is available on MyAdindaย . This is one of KupadioKL’s Raya collection. The colours is gorgeous. The beadings is too pretty and the sleeves comes with a zipper. Yup, that is important for raya because we still have to do the dishes even it’s raya, right?? My advise is, if you don’t mind the curves, stick to your own size but if you prefer a slightly loose version, get one size bigger. I’m wearing L size.

This pretty dress is currently on 10% discount hereย only until today midnight! Discount also applicable for other KupadioKL Raya collection!

OK, gotta do more OOTD. Happy shopping!!

Inspire & Desire

This!

IMG_0112

Soon… InsyaAllah.. This is his favourite smell ๐Ÿ˜˜ (minus that chanel logo.. obviously this is not the final photo but I’m just too excited ๐Ÿ™ˆ)

Currently we are looking for agents/distributor all around Malaysia to work with us. You can find more details on this FB page. There is also an event soon, Meet-and-Greet with the Entrepreneur before launching of this perfume. Details again on that FB page link above.

And.. and.. and….. takkan dia je kan… I pun nak jugak ย ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Tadaaaaa…

This is the smell that I chose. It is refreshing, bubbly, flirty and it makes me happy ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

And I promise you it is not the smell of coffee although I would love to do that. Hahaha..

Top notes are more of fruity, citrusy smell. Middle notes are a little flowery.. Jasmine to be exact, thanks to Coco Chanel for that lesson and the base is cedar, a little musky I would say…

Why Desire?

It’s about desire for success, being independent and strong but yet feminine at the same time.

Why Inspire?

I guess you have to ask my husband at the Meet-and-Greet the Entrepreneur session soon. So, to all who is interested, please kindly visit this FB page for more info.

Have a nice day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I have to admit I am not a perfect mother. Sometimes I refused to spend time with my kids because I was too tired, even when I tried, I fell asleep during our play time. Sometimes I raised my voice to them when they were making mess even when I knew it was part of their learning process. Sometimes I ignored them because they asked me “why mommy?” for the seventeenth time in a row. Sometimes I fell asleep before them when I was supposed to be reading their bedtime story.

I am guilty of not spending enough time with them. I am guilty of raising my voice to them. I am guilty of not being the angel for them like I was supposed to be.

[Matching mommy-daughter tops from KupadioKL. Both available here.ย ]

I have a lot of flaws… but somehow my girls still think I am the best mommy in the world. My girls were the one who taught me how to be a mother. It is tough. It doesn’t come with manual instruction. I just have to learn to do it with my instinct. The instinct that every mothers were blessed with. That is the magic of being a mommy. After almost 5 years being a mommy, I am still learning and trying to be a better person for them. I believe that is motherhood.

Every time I want to do something, one person will come to my mind..

IMG_1206

She is my mother. I always think “What would mama do if she was in my position..” ย She is just so inspiring. The more I think about her, the more I know how much she had sacrifice for us when we were growing up.

Today, I would like to wish my maa, umi and all mommies out there a Happy Mother’s Day.

I love you, maa..

And if you are asking me whether I am having breakfast in bed served by my girls today, the answer is no. I’m oncall. I am not even spending time with them at home. Guilty as charged. But I brought the cards that Bella and Tasha drew for me to work today! Less guilt now ๐Ÿ˜

Enjoy your Mother’s Day!

The Logic of a 3 Year Old

IMG_1316

This cheeky girl… really has her own way of stealing her mommy’s heart. Always smiling and teasing and really turning my world upside down (read: crazehhhh!)

Last week, she asked me whether I bought a present for for like the day before that… Trying to be sensible, I said “Mommy can’t be buying you present everyday. Mommy will run out of money, then we don’t have money to buy food and clothes”

Then this 3 year old girl innocently said… “Mommy, maybe you should buy new money. Then ย you will have moooooore money!”

How I wish this life is a simple like that..
