Why Instagram Why..

Have you heard.. Instagram is changing its game. Its not gonna be a chronological anymore. They will follow FB marketing style. Thanks to FB who bought over Instagram (and I’m being cynical here 😏) They will come out with a new algorithm “based on the likelihood you’ll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post” That is what exactly their statement was.

Basically that means we can’t see all our friends on our timeline. It all will be filtered. I don’t like that. I wanna see my friends 😤 Real life friends. What if  other people don’t care about my real life friends and he / she doesn’t get many Likes.. that means I will not get to see his / her Instagram photos. Other people might not care but I care!

Eh emo..

Anyway, there are many petitions going on to protest about what Instagram is doing right now… especially from Instagram-based business company.

On the other hand, I might have caught a new social media bug called “Snapchat” Hahaha.. OMG I’m still 16 deep down inside 🙈 I knew about this yellow-ghost-shape logo has been around for a while but I never bother to check on it..


It functions like Instagram. I can post photos and 10-second-video in a chronological way and it will be deleted after 24hours. Great idea. I like it 😉

How I got trapped into this? It’s because I kinda have this girl crush (see! I told you I’m 16!😘  Hahahha..) with this fitness model. Yeah, I’m really into this fitness thingy right now. I’m struggling to keep motivations sometimes so I follow this girl on Instagram (Her name is Paige Hathaway by the way..) She is so inspiring and humble. Go check her out if you are interested. I don’t want to put her photo on my blog because most of her pictures are “menjolok mata” 🙈 and of course there will be people commenting here and there (It’s just impossible to please everybody anyway..)

Anyway, yeah, I look up at her because of how determined she was to get where she is right now. I pray to Allah to give her hidayah and embrace Islam one day.. InsyaAllah..

OK, back to my Snapchat story.. Yeah, I opened a Snapchat account because I wanna follow this Paige girl. Hahaha.. Just for her! I wanna see how she trains at the gym everyday, what she eats just to inspire me to do the same.

And now… I have fallen into this Snapchat trap! Posting snap videos here and there and it’s kinda addictive.

Ohh, by the way, FB tried to buy Snapchat for 3 billion USD… but Snapchat people refused. Thank you Snapchat! Otherwise FB will dictate what we see on the social media!!

So, who is on Snapchat?

I’m HalinaMY in Snapchat world.. See you there! 😘


What’s Your Body Shape Type?


Remember this quote I put up on my IG

The other day, I was answering some silly quiz on the internet.. It was about body shape and fashion and stuff.. Haha.. I was stressed up doing anaesthesia thingy ok!!

So, one of the question was… What’s your body shape type?

a) hour glass

b) pear

c) apple

d) heart

I don’t think I’m apple-ish or heart-ish, but I’m not sure I’m the hour glass or pear.. ( or even pear-ish hourglass!!) So, who do I asked? He, who sat next to me lah!😉

The unlucky person was my dear hubsy… Hahaha… He was shocked, like in 2 secs I can see the wire inside his brain sparks trying to make connection between all the brain cells! Then he smartly answer.. “Hourglass. No doubt. I confirmed!”

Safe answer. Well done! He checked my tag on his IG page😉


Happy New… Year?!

Tomorrow is the last day of January 2016, people!!

Unbelievable.. how time flies!! I haven’t even wish you Happy New Year and we are already going to February! I hope 2016 has been treating you great so far..

As for me and my family, we are doing great so far. Both of my girls settled down with their new school routines. Bella started at a new kiddy that needs her to wake up at 0630H. The thought of waking her up super early in the morning breaks my heart… but I really need to bring out the tiger mom inside me. She was alright after about a week of adjusting.. I get to send her to school because it starts early enough and she is doing great with the squatting toilet at school. Haha..

Tasha stays at the same previous school. Initially I noticed she doesn’t really enjoy the school as before because Bella is no longer with her. It took time for her to adjust to school without Bella.. Now, she is back to her chatty-sometimes-shy herself..

As for me.. I have a lot on my plate right now. In between my big exam and MyAdinda project coming up really soon, driving here and there sending our children to their schools and other activities and I have been trying to lose weight and balance a healthy lifestyle for my family. Eating clean and gym sessions have been on our regular daily schedule. Now I plan our meals weekly because I really wanna focus on eating the right food. Trying to cut off myself from caffeine is definitely not easy! Haha.. But now I’m hooked on plain organic green tea. Yup.. No coffee and less caffeine!

So far all is working well in 2016! Thank you God! I really should make this blog a priority this year. Hah! Maybe you have heard that for the hundredth time. Hehe..

To be honest, I miss writing here.. and reading your comments. I will try my very best. And above all chaos right now, one thing I want the most… is another baby. Crazy isn’t it.. Must be my illogical biological clock ticking.. Hahaha..

Please doa for us..

I miss all of you.. X

P/S: I still love coffee..

Buhbye Pigmentation!!

Hi all!!

Do you know about this?

The latest product by Zofea Beauty. I just received this one a few weeks ago.. and currently using this in preparation for raya! Haha..

It comes with two different serum and facial soap. One serum is for day time, that is the Brightening Serum Phytocelltec and contains liquorice and vitamin C for brightening effect and sun protection. (Having said that, you still need your sunblock E.V.E.R.Y.D.A.Y!! Do NOT forget that one!!) And Brightening Serum Photo Stem Cell as the night serum, packed with anti-aging products. God please delay my aging process, ameen!

Do I like this serum or not, I like the fact that these serum is absorbed quickly into my skin. Day serum feels lighter than the night serum.. I think the night serum is slightly heavier, probably packed with more contents than the day serum. After all, skin renewal happens at night, so it’s totally understood that night cream is always richer than day serum..

Any one of you tried this before? Please share your experience with me!


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😀 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.
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…

Lately on Barely Supermommy..


There’s too much spam comments on my blog. What do I do? Should I put up approval permission before each comments? (Seriously?) It will be tiring. I don’t have time to approve every single comments..

Any advice? -.-

And thank you for the good response on advertisement blog entry. I will reply to you as soon as I can. Time is just crazy jealous of me. I will, InsyaAllah.. Be patience with me please..

And here’s Tasha being cheeky..

Much love.. X

FB Page

Hi all!!

I haven’t been writing regularly like a good blogger should😀 Well, I never was, anyway.. Since today I’m on my PM shift, that means I clock in at the hospital at 12noon and finish the operation theatre cases until 8pm.. So, I little extra time to spend in front of the computer.Time waits for no woman!!

(That why I need two computers :p)

This is what in front of me, right now.. The blog on big computer and one of the most brilliant app ever created, Omnifocus on the laptop. Seriously, that app helps to keep my life organized! (In case you didn’t know, Organize is my middle name! :D)

Owh, and my Secret White Kawaii Collagen drink!! Yes, that helps me a lot in my skin care department!!

Anyway, I just found out that someone made FB page for both my girls!! Hahah.. Yes, I googled them today! Hahaha..

This is Bella’s..

And this one is Tasha’s…

LoL.. Do they really need a FB page?

Anyway, for those who made it and liking it.. thanks! You are so thoughtful😉

I just think that is cute! Hehe.. I will convey your message to them!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
