award

Award received from n.i., Ms B and Memey Anuar. Since the other 2 are families, I’ll write about Ms B ok? n.i. and Memey Anuar, jangan marah! Hehe.

The rules:

Nyatakan 5 fakta menarik tentang pemberi award ini : Ms B

1. Someone whom I’ve never thought I’d be close friends with. πŸ˜‰
2. A yummy mummy with an adorable daughter.
3. She writes very meaningful entries, complete with hidden meanings – sometimes I need to clarify with her what she actually meant! πŸ˜€
4. Both of us somewhat share the same views on stuffs, eventhough it’s as simple as why would one need to purchase a designer handbag like every week?! *lol* (unless, of course, they have unlimited disposable income… ;))
5. She values her privacy, be it the real world, or the WWW.

p.s. Alamak! Saya ter-tulis dalam bahasa inggeris la… boleh ke?

Setiap blogger mestilah menyatakan 10 fakta atau hobi diri sendiri sebelum memilih penerima award yg seterusnya :

1. Di usiaΒ  30-an baru saya mula bersenam sekerapnya. Ke gym sekurang-kurangnya 2x seminggu dan berenang sekurang-kurangnya 1x seminggu – dengan harapan tahap hormon akan kembali kepada normal, dan kesihatan akan bertambah baik. Kalau dapat kurangkan berat badan alangkah bagusnya!
2. Tidak suka dengan rumah yang semak. Kadang-kala sehingga stress dan penat bagi memastikan semuanya dalam keadaan yang kemas dan teratur.
3. Menggosok gigi 2x sehari, tetapi selalunya pada waktu pagi dan petang. Tidak sebelum tidur! Haha.
4. Memakai braces pada usia 14 tahun – sebelum itu mempunyai sepasang siung macam dracula!
5. Tidak mempunyai tonsil. Melakukan pembedahan pada usia 16 tahun kerana mempunyai masalah dari zaman kanak-kanak lagi.
6. Suka makan nestum. Bukan cair seperti air, tapi pekat macam baby makan! Hanya nestum dan sedikit gula – tanpa susu.
7. Pernah bertukar kerja sebanyak 7 kali (Malaysia dan luar negara), bermula tahun 2000 hingga sekarang.
8. Lagi teruja tengok kedai buku daripada kedai baju-baju/handbag/dsb. Tapi ini tidak bermakna saya hanya shopping buku! πŸ˜›
9. Lagi suka melepak di rumah daripada di kedai-kedai kopi dsb.
10. Walaupun nampak macam pendiam, bila diperlukan dan keadaan memaksa, mulut boleh menjadi sangat laser!

Anda perlu memilih 10 penerima award seterusnye dan describe tentang mereka :

1. Jayne – salah seorang kawan berbangsa cina yang paling rapat! πŸ™‚
2. Rina – seorang doktor di Dublin yang baru mendapat cahaya mata.
3. Ziah – seorang rakan sekolah yang pada saya sangat kewllll!
4. Widie – Skil muziknya sangat impressive! (ni dah malas nak pikir apa perkataan yang sesuai untuk menggantikan impressive :P)
5. eyza – sudah pasti boleh buat tag ini dengan jayanya! πŸ˜€
6. mummy-o – supaya boleh update blog lebih kerap! Haha.
7. miss-cream – sama seperti no. 6 πŸ™‚
8. sharax – rakan ofis yang cool, juga rakan berenang!
9. aan – pencinta korea yang terunggul! sekarang tgh feeling2 winter sonata di korea – sila buat tag bila kembali ke ofis ya? owh, juga rakan berenang!
10. ainil – sama seperti no. 6 dan no. 7!

The New Age

Roses

So I added another 1 to the number yesterday, gracefully! It has been a blessed 31 years,Β  with considerate amount of ups and downs to make me appreciate life, and the people around me, more.

If life had been too easy, some things would be left unappreciated, I’m sure.

If life had been too hard, I might be guilty of putting the blame and leashing out anger and frustration to people who don’t deserve it, including my own self.

Lets just say, the balanced lessons I’ve had in life successfully taught me to appreciate what I already have, instead of what I don’t have.

Thanks for the birthday wish, dear family & friends!

p.s. Just to share a wonderful forwarded email I received today, which I’m sure most of us are guilty of. πŸ™‚

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life. Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: ‘If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for
you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups and were eyeing each others cups.

Now, if life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn’t change. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it.’ Β Don’t let the cups drive you.. Enjoy the coffee instead.

β€œThe happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.”

The Mall Name

The other day, when asked names of family members, Imtiyaz got most of it correct. Except one.

What’s Tok Ibu’s name?

Wan… urmmm… Wan Utama!

Window shopped too much, perhaps?! πŸ˜‰

Mother’s Day

Presented with a shy "Thank you, Mummy!"

Presented with a shy "Thank you, Mummy!"

I had an early celebration at Imtiyaz’s school this year. A medley of English, Malay & Chinese songs from the children and some games to play. The older children even had a cooking demo, and presented their parents with the food they prepared themselves.

Watching him with his friends, and excitedly pointing at me with a proud “that’s my mummy!” made me teary-eyed. And again, I wished he wouldn’t grow up too fast…

Enjoy the video, and to all mums, Happy Mother’s Day!

p.s. can you spot him? πŸ˜‰

Quiet Day In

A 3-day weekend is always welcomed! Apart from a gathering at a friend’s lovely new house, and a dinner with extended families, we managed to have a quiet day in, this time. Mind you, that’s one thing hard to get these days! πŸ™‚

And Imtiyaz kept himself busy completing his hand made Mother’s Day gift! He completed a heart-shaped collage for Tok Ibu (which was already given before I have the chance to snap a pic) and still in the midst of completing a flower-shaped collage for Siti next. He did mentionΒ  Mama Yang too, of course! (though I’m not sure if all he planned would be ready by Mother’s Day)

Hard at work (and yes, as of yesterday, he only completed that particular 1 petal :P)

Ouh, he did slip in his very own version of modern art for Atuk!

The spider web he wanted to give Atuk - and the hair, combination of a non-child-friendly-hairdresser AND child-not-liking-hairdresser-thus-not-sitting-still!

And I am SO looking forward to another 3-day weekend this week! πŸ™‚

p.s. Congratulations to Dydd & Rina on the arrivals of both Baby Aydin & Aidan!
