Old but GOLD

Tonight, I went through my old pictures, recently recovered from my crashed Macbook, and memories start to fly in. This and that. It makes me sob a little, but you know what? I just told myself, deep down I am still the same person I was that many years ago. Always the curious, always the crazy and of course, always the passionate one. Yes, the travel bit never stops, but it took a different path now that I have my little one. For what it is worth, I would not change for the world! Remember that.

Behold 2016!

I never knew I could access my blog via my laptop! I'm so happy. I do think 2016 will be such a good luck to me as I actually considering to continue writing. The thing is, I may wanna close this blog and start a new one which is more focused on things that I like, rather than a mumbo jumbo of things that even you find it hard to find. Anyways, I haven't fully make that commitment. I will make the announcement. I'm thinking of a lifestyle blog for my 2016 hobby. We shall see!

Motherhood talk

When it comes to feeding your baby, you have three choices: breastfeeding, formula milk or mixed the two. I chose the former. Little did I know it is a hard work! I admire those who were able to nurse their baby until 2 years old, especially when you have a full time job. I have my support group at work and a cousin who is an advocate for this. From them, I believe this is possible! Sometimes I do have that thought of would not it be easier to give formula milk, especially when you are out and about. That thoughts lingers in my head for quite a bit. I guess I was looking for a shortcut, but who wouldn't? For now, I'm trying my best. But between that long minutes (it seems so!!) of pumping and nursing, I do find a silver lining that is I get some time for myself :)

To go there

I can only dream for now but hey, it is a long time dream of mine to travel to these places. It seems some of my friends are going to these places and that makes me all jelly belly! I better make a bucket wish list of the places I dream to go so that I can stare at it and day dream over and over. LOL

In no particular order:
1. Santorini, Greece
2. Patagonia, Chile
3. Croatia
4. Switzerland
5. Alaska
6. Zanzibar, Tanzania
7. Serengeti, Tanzania
8. Jordan

I still have that 7 wonders of the world checklist going on...

One fine day eh?? Imma work hard from now on 😁

Must write me blog!

Back in those days, I blogged at night until at one point, I don't mind sleeping late! Not to mention, I had to wake up at 5.30am daily as I lived rather far from KLCC and commuting took time. Anyways, days turned into months, I moved to a closer to work condominium with a bunch of crazee awesome housemates. What cut the frap is the internet connection to my Celcom broadband was so poor! That kills the mood; thus, you no longer see frequent posts after March 2011. Then, to top that off, I accidently deleted my email as the author of this blog...I really don't know I was doing that until it happened. Now, I can only blog via phone. Sigh. Ok, thats my tell tale. My point here is, I have so many things I feel like writing but time and space is putting me on hold. I wish for that long nights I don't mind spending again. Anyways, I want to make a point of keeping this blog. It has been with me since 2007 and I shared a lot here. My late uncle once told me, "write a blog, it will be your diary. When you are old, this is your safekeeping of all the memories you had 'cause you may forget it already." You know, now that he left us all, I think was he said is true, because I can still read his writings and remember his stories. Even in his old days when he had stroke and incapable of doing things on his own, he had left something for people to read and know about him. I guess to a certain degree, yes it holds true. 

So here again, I'm telling myself...make some time to pen down things here. I may not have readers as much as I used to do, but it's okay. It serves for me :) 

Selamat Hari Raya & Maaf Zahir Batin from me and my family (including my crying baby) ❤️

p/s: I look mak-mak now

Life, as we know it

There will come a day when you will be like me, a wife and a mother. A day that has showed me what it meant to love and be loved. How come somebody so small have so much love in their heart? I never cease to believe in that. It was never a smooth ride, but the sweet ending is always a blessing. 

But the heart wants what it wants. It mellows down to the slightest heart ache, let alone to tears. Day in and day out, I remind myself that you don't know how strong you are until being strong is the only option. 

Family comes first, even for the most successful wife and mother. 

The secret to success is always rather vague. We define what it means and by all means be grateful it happened to us. Above all that, Allah is watching us and He has His best interest in us. Be that person our heart has set to be. I am determined to that. Dreams follow me wherever I go, it is just a matter of time. I can't be wishing for 25hours a day, no?

On struggles

Each one of us have our own struggles. To say one do not understand you is unfair 'cause you'll never know what is behind every smile you see. Let alone to understand their struggle, give it big or small.

Chalkart fan

I have a thing for chalkart, apparently. Though I have always take a sneak peak at this form of art, I have never tried doing it myself until week! I wanted it for my wedding but I could not find time to sit down and practise my handlettering. 
So yeah, after drawing inspirations from others, this is what I came up with. Right now, I still in the phase of doodling our name with lots of hearts in between. Sounds so high school, isn't it? I hope to do more. I'm using black ink so there is no room for mistake. It is okay 'cause ot is my favourite pen that I got from Dollarama years ago. Well, sounds like I need to practise more and be more creative! Cheerios!

2013 to 2014

And so 2014 began a month ago. It has yet to draw itself to me and I have not reserve myself for any big plans so far. Oh, perhaps moving into a new place is a big deal. Ah, yes yes. It is. As excited as I am planning for house renovation and finding house decor ideas constantly, I cannot escape the fact that we are living just us after this. I wonder how different that will be for me!

Above all, 2013 has set a great note for me. I felt I have accomplished amazing things last year and being married topped the list! Perhaps it will forever top the list. On a side note, I think being husband and wife have pros and cons as you two begin to adapt to each other. Fights and occasional merajuk seem less likely these days; and since my MIL is still the ma'am of the kitchen, I get to feel overjoy whenever I get the chance to cook for them.

I am praying for great news in 2014.

p/s: I miss writing my blog; though I am considering creating a new blog since has a lot of spam comments. Luckily, I get to approve the true comments and not let spammers rule the comment box.

The Vow

The Vow

If you tell me seven years ago that I'll be marrying Syahir, I would not believe you. But time took it on us, separating us and reuniting us again four years later, only to make us one. Since then, there is no looking back for me and I cherish every day I spent with you.

Today, I'm yours and I will forever be yours. 
With all the love in my heart, I promise to be your forever loving wife, through thick and thin together until death separates us this time. I want to be the best in everything for you, the best mother to our children, the best chit chat buddy, the best partner in crime, the best traveling companion and yes, forever your best friend. 

Above all, I have met that certain someone whom I can share all my love with and who would listen patiently to me every single time. 

For that, I am eternally grateful to have met you, Syahir. 
May we be forever until Jannah.

I Love You.
