Time Flies

It feels only a few days ago I gave birth to my darling lil baby... (I can still feel the labour pain till now... Hahaha !!!) and this 26th, he turns 1 year old already. How time rocketed these days... He's been such a bundle of joy and having a baby at an older age taught u so many things especially patience which I lack of at times... I am thankful for having the privilege of taking and caring for my son cos I am retired now from the crappy work force !!! I see him grows on a daily basis, I see him develops, I see him changes... He has tantrums but manageable ones !!!

I thank GOD for giving me the opportunity to be a Mommy !!! Alhamdulillah...

Keeping Fit

In my pursue of healthy living, I have been wanting to join a gymnasium that is quite decent but with BIG name... Hahaha !!! Image purposes lah ni !!! Most of the gyms I knew then were so far away being the nearest in KLCC, yes that Fitness First. But then I thought, why should I join a gym that I have to drive all the way, paying toll, waste my fuel and of course paying for the parking that would cost me a bomb most definitely !!! So, I hold that idea for the longest time I think... Then in between I got to do free exercises like jogging in my neighbourhood or swimming while holidaying. Hubby has been thinking of getting bicycles for both of us, that too has not been materialised since we came back from Mumbai which was in 2007 but he got himself a 1000cc motorbike though early this year... Hmmmm.....

Oh yes... back to the gym story, today for the first time I went to Wangsawalk Mall in Wangsa Maju to check out the place (Mall is overstatement...cos it's only 2 story building shopping complex). Oh yes... I dragged my lil son and my maid along which my original plan was to buy groceries in Cold Storage. Then I saw the gym's promo booth and while trying to locate where I could get 1 brochure for myself I was approached by Adeline, its membership consultant. I told her my baby napping time was due so she better explain to me in a jiffy. Well... after a few minutes of explanation especially the monetary part, I was satisfied then I signed up at last....

Come to think of it, I used to pay RM150.00/month for a twice weekly mat pilates class. So, I thought this is really a better deal since I can use the gym equipment, attend all the classes (if time and body permit) and no restriction on no of days.... I paid RM337.00 when I signed up which include its processing fee and 1st and last month fees of RM238.00. Monthly I only need to pay RM119.00. Good thing about Celebrity Fitness Gym, they provide you towels when u come. So, you don't have to bring 1 from home.... Phew !!! Oh yes... since it's new, they also waived the Joining Fee of RM500.00, which I reckon it is very costly. Exit fee is RM400.00, which is fair enough.

OK now... I must find that motivation to attend the classes or simply getting fit at the gym. Perhaps I need a few new gymwears too !!! Hahaha.... Will check out at Pavilion tomorrow when I go there to pick up my new shoes at Cole Haan... Hehehe. Now I have excuses to buy gymwears ya.... I must look like a celebrity since I am going to a Celebrity Fitness Gym.... What a joke !!!

Nursing Bra

U know what... I just discovered that JUSCO has varieties of Nursing Bra, so many designs and colors. Wow !!! What is even great about their Bras is the prices which starts from only RM19.00 if I am not mistaken. They are pretty decent looking, good cotton and comfortable to wear. I got one myself last week and have no regret purchasing it. They even have them wired and unwired. I used to get a few from Triumph and Marks & Spencer, Triumph's bra gets loose after a while, at least mine, the gap seems to open up and could be seen if I wear a white tshirt. And my boobs are an average sized boobs of 34 only... Perhaps, I will go and get a few more this week !!!

Post Raya

Well.... It's over and done with. What awaits us next are the open houses and many delicious and not to be missed dishes. There goes my DIET !!! Ah... what the heck, it's once a year....

Raya for me this year is more meaningful as it was the First Raya for my lil son too !!! Yes... he received duit Raya and I must say it's a welcome change cos previous years, I will be the one who "menghulur", and still is, but this year, I got to receive duit Raya on my son's behalf !!! As usual, he would want to chew the packet once he received it....

I believe everyone is back - grounded with work and the usual routine huh ??? That's life and it's REAL !!!

Eid Mubarak....


If you are travelling like us, plan your journey and prepare your checklist especially when travelling with a baby and kids. Oh yes.... do not forget to pack that nice Baju Raya and Kueh Raya also.....

Last but not least, safe journey everyone !!!

Tuesday, September 8, 2009


Ahhh..... I still have loads to upload and sell, but yet I am so lazy to do it. Is it me or is it my surroundings ??? My baby should motivate me actually since he's up and about all the time... But I guess I am running out of energy !!!

Perhaps after Raya I will upload more but there would be a lot of baby's stuff actually !!! Look out for Bumble Bee breastfeeding pillow (moonshape pillow), Avent Manual Breast Pump, few baby's clothes etc etc.... there are all pre-loved items which are still in great conditions !!!

My camera was sent to a service centre yesterday at last but they can't promise that I could get it before Raya.... Ah well.... there goes 1st Raya for my baby without a camera !!! However, we still have the handphones or even siblings' cameras !!!

I have lived my life to taste "hidup merantau" from the age of 18 cos I was one of the lucky ones to be awarded a scholoarship to study abroad after my SPM. Yes it was tough but it's kind of fun as well when you go down that memory lanes which were full of stories, be it sad and great, so nostalgic.... But then again, nothing actually prepares u for living away from home except yourself... How u blend in with your surroundings and how fast u adapt to its lifestyle.... Ahhh... those fond memories during my Uni days !!!

But then again, it opens your eyes when u get to live in a another country where its population for one state almost equivalent of Malaysia's population. Imagine the city that is so crowded, noisy, dusty etc etc.... Poverty rate is so high, people made pedestrian pathways as their homes.... So sad... but it's the truth and living in Mumbai, India has made me realised that no where in the world could substitute home - MALAYSIA !!! U can take India in a small dose, but too large u may go bonkers !!! Hahaha....

This is Bambam my darling cat !!! It's his 15th birthday today.... Yes people, long life !!! He used to have a partner, Pebbles but she died in 2005 due to lymphoma. Cats do get cancer....

Along the way, they produced few kittens but I didn't keep any.... It takes a lot to keep a pet, not just money but time as well. Bambam used to be neglected cos I don't have time to deal with him as I was equally busy with my lil son. I only manage to feed him in the morning and evening, then clear his litter box. Now I pass that duty to my maid.... Ahhhhh.....

He's a home bound cat.... I am too scared to let him out and mix with the strays (no offence ya stray cats.....) !!! Stray cats carry a lot of germs, be careful when touching them and always wash your hands after that. But I do let Bambam out once in a while within the compound of the house for some fresh air.

My Maid

My new maid Sri was sent to me Friday Nite by the agent.... My first impression, she's a bit slow but better than the cleverer ones !!! So, I must be very patient dealing with her as to teach her what to do and all.... This is her 1st time in Malaysia after she divorced her husband who went to marry her good friend... Alahai !!! Then, 1st thing I told her, focus, sincere, don't lie and work hard. Not so mean right ???

The next morning I had my long overdue hair and nails appointment... yes, the silver hairs are so visible and my dry ends beyond repair !!! We were off to my usual salon and were there for almost 3 hours !!! My lil son was so cranky but somehow, he is OK with this maid even she's very new in the household. I don't know, maybe babies have better instincts ???

While we were away, my husband became Magnum PI lah at home and went through her things... which nothing much. She came with a small bag that could pass for my toiletries bag !!! Very minimal clothes I can tell ya....

After we were done at the salon, gotta rush home amidst the traffic along MRR2 from Ampang, then off to Tg Karang for an Aqiqah. Of course, by the time we got there what was left is just food. Hahaha.... On the way back, we stopped by at the Fishmarket in Pasir Penambang, Kuala Selangor. Oh my.... looking at the freshest goods there, u would want to buy them all. Imagine, XL King Prawns were sold at RM43/kilo only. Of course being prawns lover, I grabbed some lah kan.... Bought some fish also that were so shiny and so very fresh.... Now that I have a maid, I can start cooking again daily....

New Maid

Finally, the agent told me that a new maid is coming this Friday.... a sheer relieve but then again I am anxious too.. Anxious in the sense that I hope history doesn't repeat. I am thinking of drafting a KPI for this new maid but then again, she might be overstress with the high expectation I have in mind.... Terus gila pulak nanti. Hahaha.... Siapa yang susah, me again !!!

I guess I can't expect much of this maid right ??? But I have to learn from the previous maid that I can't be too nice and tolerance anymore.... that is just me !!! Simply TOO NICE.... I was brought up that way...and I can't help it !!!

One thing for sure... she can't have her own handphone cos it will be the source of all the problems later, and that was what happened to the previous maid. Then I heard lots of stories as well, these maids sometimes would bring "funny stuff" with them when they are new here... if u know what I meant.... Aiyoh !!!

Anyway, I will take it at my own stride lah with this new maid, at least I could rest a little more... She can take care of Aqil for a while, so Aqil would not fall off the bed again !!! Yes... he fell off our bed of more than 2 ft high for the second time last week. He had his left eye blue black eye pea... can pass for Fergie's back up dancer.... The bruise is still there today but diminishing well. Thank GOD for that.... His 1st fall, I panic like mad, took him to Gleneagles, the MO that assessed Aqil also had his daughter fell off their bed... Oh OK.... doctor's baby also fell off bed !!! I was quite relieved lah then.... Last Monday, within a few seconds, BUMP.... he's on the floor again. This time he cried longer.... Waited till hubby got home from work, then off we went to see our GP only this time... She assessed Aqil thoroughly (FOC tau....), then gave him a clean bill of health... Just watch out for sympthoms like vomitting and passing out.... if any baby or child for that matter had a fall, immediately take him/her to A&E !!!! Don't wait ya....

Me being a new Mommy, there are so many things I have to learn and put to practice at the same time.... but mind u, certain things are definitely based on mommy's instincts !!!! Kelebihan seorang wanita..... Yeay !!!

Handphone story

I am happier cos my handphone is finally repaired, more of replacing its LCD which cost me RM280.00. But my camera is yet to be repaired.... hubby is thinking of D90 but then again we are not so much into photography but nothing wrong investing in great camera right ????

Thinking of uploading some more stuff, but I don't seem to have enough minutes to shoot the pics. Lil son is so up and about during the days that limit my movement doing own things... Above all, he is such a joy !!!!

Friday, July 10, 2009

Sad Story

First the my handphone !!! Yes, the handphone needs repair too. Worst cos its LCD shattered !!! Huhuhu.... Can't see a damn thing .... Poor me. And that will cost me a bomb.... That is more the reason why I set up my own blog to sell stuff - to support my ever increasing expenses. A lot of times, things happened so untimely. Now I am using my old handphone (1st generation 3G Nokia 6680) - it has no USB. The only manner I could transfer the pics thru bluetooth but I need to top up lil baby's pre-paid first !!! Ahhhhhhh.......

OK enough of my sighing over things......

Weekend in Historic Melaka

Our trip to Melaka was very joyful cos it coincided with my birthday and my good friend son's (Adam) birthday as well. Actually we have been celebrating our birthdays together every year since he's small, now he's 11 already.... how time flies huh !!!

We took the river cruise and discovered fascinating sites of Melaka that I never known before. I must say the State Govt had done very well in sprucing up the river and turned it into a tourist attraction. I do hope they could maintain it though... the cruise isn't expensive at RM10.00 for Adult and RM5.00 for children above 4... The ride was 45 minutes long that took us a total of 9km journey to and fro... Not bad ha.....

A Melaka trip will not be completed without a short journey to Serkam Pantai for its grilled seafood.... Yummy !!! That must be the climax of our trip.....

My Weekly Story....

My camera is yet to be repaired, thus, no new upload for now. However, I'll try to do so next week when a temp maid is here till I get a permanent maid who is apparently still in the rural area of Surabaya.... Hopefully, this one is more focus on her intention of coming to Malaysia, the land of plenty !!! That's why we have way too many PATI which include my old maid....

I had lunch at Tony Roma's today, an old darling friend treated me for birthday lunch - so called. Hahaha.... And tomorrow we are off to the Historical City of Melaka for a weekend getaway, ya... kononnye birthday celebration but more for my buddy's son who shares the same bday as I am and we have been celebrating it together for yonks....

Anyway.... to all of ya... have the greatest weekend ya... I know I would at Avillion Legacy Melaka.

Salam n Cheers

Hi All....

I am going to JB following my hubby for his work commitment but at the same time "balik kampung" to my parents'. Will not be online for 3 days but will check emails on Friday...

Till then....take care all....

Friday, June 12, 2009


Today I sold a blouse which my customer came over and collected it. But she ended up going home with two other pieces..... (those pieces which I have yet to upload in the blog). Knowing me, with the broken camera (no time to send for repair yet) and a lil boy who needs attention all the time, I can't find enough time to do things on my own....

Anyway, to Eda..... thank you very much for being my 1st customer !!! And pleasure knowing u...

More to come

Hi Ladies...

I have 3 pairs of sunnies which I have to upload yet !!! Yes... they are all mine and used a few times. Why ??? Because I normally have a few at one time to match my attire and where I go then.. Hahaha !! And now I decided to sell them off, to have enough money in order to get that TOM FORD's pair. But then again, TF's specs are quite heavy, at least to me, compared to the one that I have now. Believe it or not.... I have ONLY one pair that I put on everywhere I go, it's light and protects my eyes !!!

Why the delay ??? My lil Olympus decided to be OFF MODE and need urgent attention from a camera shop very soon. So, I have to rely on my 3.2mp camera handphone of mine. OK lah... it does the job.

Just wait huh.... n keep visiting !!!

Days of our lives....

It has been almost 3 weeks I am without a maid... then I came across a paper report that a maid ran away from her abusive employer of 3 years !!! What ???? 3 years....???? How can a human being could stand the abuses, beatings, hot water pourings etc etc for 3 years ??? I just can't comprehend that... and here I am, with an ex-maid who I treated so nicely, can't even do work as I expected to be. I know they are humans so they are not perfect but then again, a maid has to do what a maid has to do lah kan.... cleaning, dusting, washing, keeping the house spotless at all times etc etc.... She was lucky cos I am a stay at home Mommy, so I take care of my lil clingy angle.

Now.... I have this part time maid who comes fullday on Saturday n Thursday to help me cleaning the house till I get my replacement which I am uncertain when !!! The agent keeps telling me "a few coming this week" but I have yet to see even one being sent to me.... shall I change the agent? What about the fees I have paid ??? Adoiii....

My husband on the other hand has a lot of pity on me but not of help that much. For instance, last Saturday, I had this private party at a friend's house, left my son with him cos he was asleep already. Alahai.... as I was chewing my sirloin steak, I saw 6 missed calls from him. There goes my party.... he came later to bring my son over to join the party... till almost midnight. What a nite that was..... however, I couldn't let my hair down lah....

This is a story of an older Mommy of one... If my friends read this, they will laugh.

It's not that I am complaining so much but life has been pretty topsy turvy this past 2 weeks after I sacked my "up to no good" maid of 5 months. My 6 months old lil hero been so clingy on me which resulted not much can be done when he's up and about. What more, he doesn't nap that long to allow me to complete house chores at one go.... collectively this hero of mine only naps for 2 hours je.... Aiyoh !!!

I m kind of very strained n goofed but I manage somehow. I guess women are given that extra strength to multitasking...

Thus, I do apologise to the ladies that emailed me earlier.... only today I managed to reply. Some businesswoman lah me.....

I do have a few more stuff to be uploaded but I just couldn't slot the time... huhuhu

Happy Mom's Day

Years back I wouldn't really know the feeling of celebrating Mother's Day, but now I am a mom, it's kind of difficult to describe that wholesome feeling !!! Thot I share this.....

Before I was a Mom

I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.

I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.

I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom -

I had never been puked on.

Pooped on.

Chewed on.

Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.

I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom

I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests.

Or give shots.

I never looked into teary eyes and cried.

I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.

I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom

I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down.

I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.

I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.

I never knew that I could love someone so much.

I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom -

I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.

I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.

I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.

I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom -

I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.

I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache,

the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.

I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.
