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.

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..

She is my mother. I always think “What would mama do if she was in my position..”  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 😝

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  you will have moooooore money!”

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

To KB..

I’m writing this from a flying aeroplane, but probably posted this from my hotel room later. I’m currently flying to Kota Bharu for my exam. This year, USM is the host for our exam so all candidates from other universities will be in Kota Bharu USM campus.

I’m flying with Firefly now. Travelling alone… Haven’t done this is a long time!!! After I bought my tickets, Firefly offered me to buy the seat next to me for RM15 for extra space! Owh yay!! I don’t mind extra space. My bag needs a seat too😉

FullSizeRender

Managed to flatlay my seats. Hehe..One for me, one for my bag.. and that pink file is my notes. Didn’t check in, just in case I lose my luggage along my journey. Haha.. Paranoid.

Back to my extra seat story… So, I agreed but Firefly can only confirm the it only about 3 hours before my flight. I received an email earlier today saying that I got the extra seat (Yay!) and I hope I will get another extra seat when coming back to KL on Monday. Any Firefly people here, please gimme the extra seat that I booked, please pretty please😉

Exam is really around the corner.. this coming Sunday and Monday to be exact. Last few weeks have been crazy for me. Sitting for major exam when you have family and working at the same time is not easy. I could have taken this exam long time ago but I got too distracted enjoying my life in my twenties. Really living life to the fullest. Hahahah…

Again, there’s no right or wrong about deciding when do you want to further you study… and there’s nothing wrong about not continuing to study at all. It’s really up to your choice. I have friends who got married and plan for their family later after exam. In my case, the initial plan was to have a baby and then continue study after that… but I loved being a mommy so much so we decided for another one. Hahaha… Seriously.

 So here I am, juggling family, and career. I have to say I’m really lucky because my husband understand what I am doing. He better understand, right… he is a doctor, for God sake! But still, I feel like I didn’t give my 100% for this exam. I know I could have done a lot better in term of preparation, but to be honest, I prefer to play with my children more. I feel like my girls are growing up too fast. We registered B for her Primary 1 school last week! I can’t believe myself either!

 OK, landing Kota Bharu real soon. I probably spend whole day in my hotel room until exam is over. Flying back to KL the night after I finish my last paper on Monday.

 Wish me luck. I need it so bad. I wish you all a great weekend ahead.

I Need Help!

Help..

I can’t take this off..

IMG_0994

Bella decided Tasha has been a good girl and rewarded her with lots and lots of stamps on her legs.. both of her legs!!

I don’t dare to use any harsh soap or detergent obviously because Tasha is still a small kid. The thought of scrubbing it with berus sabut actually crossed my mind but she doesn’t like it even with loofah.

So how?

I only managed to get rid about 50% of it. Hubby said, it’s ok.. the rest will disappear later. But when is later?? When she is 17? Hahaha..

Any advice?

Random Rantings..

I stumbled upon the viral video “Hantaran 15K”

I have to agree that weddings are super expensive nowadays. I may be wrong but only mas kahwin is our right (mine was RM80!! Haha..) If both sides are spending about half of the cost, isn’t it more logical to lower down the hantaran to help ease the burden on your future husband? After all, you are gonna marry him anyway. If he is in debt, you are too! Married, remember?

I found two sides of the story. Not judging anyone. Whatever done is done.

One little note to my girls out there.. Getting married is not about the wedding. It’s about life after marriage. You will realise that your man loves you when he wakes you up for prayers. You will realise that your man loves you when he tells you to solat with him. And that is because what is more important is your afterlife.

Be independent.

And don’t always look for the right person. Be THE right person to find your right person.

I’m sorry if I ever hurt anyone..

Allah knows best.
