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..


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..


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…


Inspire & Desire



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



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!


The Birth of MyAdinda

I used to play Fashion Design World game on my iPhone.. You know, where I get to open my own boutique, make clothes, shoes and accessories. Hehehe.. I was really into that game. I even woke up at 3am just to check on my boutique! Hahahah… I know, a thirty-something still playing that kind of game!! *facepalm*

Then I stopped, it started to make sense that I’m a slave to the game. LoL.

But now, the game comes into reality. Me and my friends are working on MyAdinda. An online shopping portal for modest fashion. Oh my.. I can’t believe the amount of work and energy that I have to put into it! Hahahah.. Much more than the game!! Part of our team is in Dublin, Ireland and they are working on bringing European designers to MyAdinda and starting to run  a warehouse based in Europe so we can cater the modest fashion market there (with less shipping cost of course!) And part of us are here based in KL.


Alhamdulillah, we have Mariah Idrissi, H&M’s first hijab model collaborating with us so far and more to come InsyaAllah..

Today, MyAdinda is two weeks old! We are still learning, improving and expanding. If you are a potential vendor interested in expending your business, you can email us at enquiry@myadinda.com

If you are just like me who loves to shop… you can find us at www.myadinda.com

Please ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป our FB page. Follow us on our Instagram and Twitter.

Gosh! My Fashion Design World game is finally becoming real! Hahaha.. Dream big!!

P/S: Expect to see OOTD on my IG from now on! ๐Ÿ˜


A Little Project..

Recently I have been involved with a little project with a few friends of mine. I really can’t wait to reveal it to all of you.. But of course I’m not allowed to as yet๐Ÿ˜‰

Still working on it!

Yup, as if I don’t have enough on my plate..

But really… this is my hobby, passion and interest.. (besides anaesthesia of course!)

I really hope this will work. May Allah give me and my team strength and patience to make this work..

Here’s a little hint…

I really like that name..

I hope you like it too..

Will update you!


Deepavali 2010

Deepavali 2010 is special to me.. That was about one month plus after we got married.. It was somewhere in early November..
In my lifetime, I never had any headache before. Trust me.. Never! But a week before Deepavali.. I started to have headache.. morning, day and night.. and crazy mood swing (How can a newly wed has mood swing?? I was supposed to be in honeymoon phase!!)

Then I started to think.. what could possibly when wrong.. like some brain pathology, or some viral infection.. some hormonal imbalance.. I already made a checklist to rule out my illness, until my colleague told me to do Urine Pregnancy Test..

I gulped! Is that possible? It has only been a month?? So, I went to the pharmacy, and I bought like 5 different brand of UPT!! Hahahha.. I just wanna make sure thereโ€™s no false positive happening here!! 5!! For Godsake!! Hahahhaโ€ฆ And no, I didnโ€™t tell my new husband yet.. I was scared!!

Deepavali morning, I was on call..

(Come to think about it, Iโ€™m always on call on Deepavali!! Today pun on call!!)

Woke up early, according to my gynaecology knowledge, urine for pregnancy test has to be done early in the morning.. First urine in the morning because that is when the beta HCG hormone is at its highest level in the urine.. I drank glasses of water to get the system running๐Ÿ˜‰ Hehe..

So, to the toilet I goโ€ฆ First time peeing on the stick!! Woohooo… Of course I didnโ€™t manage to complete all 5 sticks!! Hahahah.. Only 1. Geezzzzz..

I closed my eyes, no actually I peeped with one eye.. it took a while for the blue line to come out.. First line is out. Then there was a faint second line. I fainted for 3 seconds! Two lines.. two lines.. two lines.. Breathe Halina breatheโ€ฆ This is huge. I better breathe.. It was surreal. Then I get ready to work.. I was on call remember. Hubsy was already awake. He was in front of the computer reading news. I told himโ€ฆ โ€œI think I’m pregnantโ€ and showed him the stick that I peed on. (Haha.. cleaned of course!!) I think his jaw literally droppedโ€ฆ and the rest is history..

Here we are.. 4 years later..

Blessed..Photo credit to Rashidee Azmanย 


Happy Deepavali to all who celebrating.. Wishing you a wealthy, prosperous and delightful Deepavali. Happy holiday to the rest!!


Tasha Is 1!!


Time really flies. Tasha is one year old today..

MasyaAllah, God gave us this cheerful, bubbly little girl to our family. I have no words to describe my feelings towards this little angel. When we first had Bella, I thought I have given my all to her. All my love that I have inside me, all for Bella. Before Tasha was born, I was worried I could not give Tasha as much love as I had for Bella.. simply because I have given all to B!! To my surprise, I was wrong.. the love just grow and grow and grow.. and I equally love these two girls so much, not even an ounce less between these two.


I guess that what mommies do, right?

To love..

Happy birthday Tasha!!

I love you more than you ever know..


The Laid-Back and The Clean-Obsessed!

Another outing day..

This time the girls get to enjoy the beach!!

We were in PD yesterday evening. It was just a day trip. We drove down to PD after lunch and already back in KL by 7pm. Both grandparents came and join us together with their cousins. We had real fun, we brought food from home, with tikar.. had our teatime under the tree. It’s just so nice to be together with the family enjoying the nature..

To our surprise, we gotta know Tasha is such a laid-back child. She loves running around (ok, not really running but walking..) with her barefoot enjoying the sand. She just sit on the sand and started to play with it (and that includes putting it in her mouth!! Haha..)

That one definitely she got it from her daddy!!

She doesn’t even bother the sand in between her toes. She loves it!!

And that’s her enjoying the waves and wet sand on her own. No drama at all!!

And Bella, on the other hand… is a clean-obsessed!! (Like mommy!! Hahah..)

She wanted to build a sand castle but doesn’t want her hands to get dirty. Haha.. I had to sit down with her and slowly make her touch the sand and explain to her it’s ok that her hand is dirty. It takes time but towards the end, she’s getting better at it!

And to get her into the water, is another episode of drama. Maybe the waves scares her. She’s only convinced to go into the water when I told her the sea is just a huge swimming pool.. Hahahha.. It’s true isn’t it??

And she believes me!!

Owh, and my sister (Dr Hamizah) is back in KL for her maternity leave. She gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last September, Rhea Aireen, now 3 months old. Here she is with her babatok..

Check out her thigh!! Yummehhh!!!

It was definitely a memorable day for all of us.ย Since we had too much fun.. and Bella needs more beach-training (hehe..) we definitely gonna do this more often!!๐Ÿ˜‰
