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?

My New Addiction…

Unbelievable… and I’m not talking about handbags!!

For the past few months, 4 months to be exact, I have started to exercise regularly.. When I say regularly, I mean everyday… Sometimes twice a day when I have the time!! The only days I don’t work out is when I’m on call or I had too much exposure to gas at work that made me too sleepy. Hahaha.. The rest of the days.. I’m on!

What makes me change?

I’m under a lot of stress lately and my body mechanism when I’m stressed up is to shop and eat!! Hahahaha.. Sounds familiar? ๐Ÿ˜

I will shop for clothes (because they are generally not as expensive as handbags and shoes..) and I will eat.. and since I eat so much, I have to shop for clothes again because I cannot fit into the clothes that I bought.. and the fact that I can’t fit into my new clothes makes me depressed even more… and it’s a vicious cycle!! It never ends!! ๐Ÿ˜”

Last November, after gaining so much weight, stressed up and my miscarriage.. I decided to change. I know I’m leading a unhealthy lifestyle and by the time I reach fourty.. I probably wouldn’t recognise myself..

So, I decided to change.. It was hard initially.. I was on fire literally for the first two weeks then the spirit went down. My body took time to adapt to my new routine. When I feel like giving up, I still dragged myself to the gym and just go for a brisk walk on the treadmill. Nothing hardcore on my bad gym day but at least I keep myself moving..

After a while, I’m starting to see the results, the numbers on the scale is getting smaller and I can fit into most of my clothes ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป That what drives me!

Now after 4 months, it has become a routine for me to eat clean and exercise everyday, and I feel bad if I skipped a day! Never thought that day would come, eh? ๐Ÿ˜

Check out my gym songsย . No Beyonce, no sweat! Haha..

So, who has been a good girl sticking to your 2016 resolution so far?

๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

I have lost 10 kg in total *insert big round applause here*

Who run the world? Girls!!!

Bag Tree

This is Bella and Tasha’s bag tree.. They are not even entering primary school yet but the amount of their bags.. Haih.. From Frozen to My Little Pony to Didi & Friends!! (Yeah, Didi & Friends is the only Malay cartoon on Astro that they like!! Didi & Friends series sent their merchandise to my girls and they were head over heels over this baby chick Didi!!)

Last weekend, we were out at the mall looking for some stuff for the girls.. and of course, Bella saw the stationery and school bag sections because it’s all in pink!

Slowly she walked towards the bags, and happily choose whatever she likes.. Then she brought the bags (yes.. bags! It was two bags!!!) to her daddy… I was just looking from far. I knew she wouldn’t look for me to buy things because mommy wouldย most likely said no. Haha.. Tiger mom!

I saw her talking to her daddy.. Then I walked towards them, S told me Bella wanted those two bags. Woohooooo young lady, two bags at a time? I told her that she has to donate her other bags for each new bag she bought.

Her jaw dropped!ย Then she said,

“That’s unfair!! Mommy, youย have a lot of handbags too! We are the same. We like handbags!!”

I was speechless.

Hahahahhaha.. I really dunno what to do in that situation. S happily told me after that.. “Bella is you!”

Hurmmm..

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!

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

Phone-less

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, ย feed them lunch, then my husband asked me to rest for a while. I must looked like a real zombie yesterday.. ย 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”

Hahahah..

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 :Dย 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 emergencyย 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!

Hahahaha…

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-ngada๐Ÿ˜‰ As if you don’t know me, S..

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