happy new year 2017

so i'd like to jot down a few lines on the first page of 2017's book. haven't really into this tradition of making the first day of january such a celebration since the past few years, because to me it's just another day and just happens to be the first one. yes i used to blog 'happy new year 20XX' and blah blah, that's all.

i just felt a bit different this year. was it because most people on facebook that i know celebrated new year and posted something online? or maybe because i've secretly declared that i wanted to be more active on social media which prompted me to join the bandwagon, i think so too..

last night, we went out for a dinner as aaqilah repeatedly mentioned we should go to see fireworks, or at least be at somewhere happenings because it's new year. we just told her that was something we haven't done in years. it's almost sounded like a pleading, at least we should go to citta mall she said. since natalia and apparently sufi too were having a mild diarrhea hence we decided it's better not to divert anywhere after dinner. too bad no fireworks display could be seen from subang bestari.

so i thought, it's not really about the first day of january or the moment 12 midnight struck but at least i wanted to give them the feel and opportunity being at those busy places once in a while. probably celebrating new year will be one of those that they'll remember experiencing when they're kids. ain't that something nice to have?

let's start one shall we, i'll post any celebration photos next time on social media, be it on instagram or fb or my own blog :)

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something. So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” ― Neil Gaiman


lagaknya reunion band

It's been a while, and here we meet again in the month of december 2016. there's only 1 song and will always be associated with my december. don't know why but it's like december anthem, very melancholic and bit hopeful..

where do i begin after on hiatus for more than 2 years. a break which i initially thought for days or weeks, and it became 2 years? life and routines have finally caught up with us, and blogging was no longer a must. last post featured a 9 month old sufi and she's turning 3 in a month. aaqilah is already a big 10 year old, natalia now 7 is the one who enjoys school so much.

i've got so many to share here but let me start all over again slowly and steadily, i hope.

bismillah, here for another journey


tieks or tula?

Saturday, October 18, 2014

If, let say you have an option between the following two, which one do you choose and why

A pair of tieks - obviously a very indulging pair of flats which i've been drooling for quite some time huhu can't find it in any shops, you have to buy it online http://tieks.com

design - oh yes.
functionality - can't say as i don't own one, never tested before.
price wise - pricey :(

Happy first day of fall! A much welcomed change after this L.A. heatwave :) #Tieks #FirstDayOfFall

never ever imagined that i'd go ga ga over another baby carrier after baby bjorn. bought in 2006 when aaqilah was less than 3 months, it served us obediently. we've been tru thick and thin over the years, from aaqilah to natalia, to our nephews and nieces and now sufi. to me baby bjorn is like the ultimate baby carrier, until i tested tula last week. since i've already had a baby carrier, i don't really bother about getting a new one. however, ssc or soft structured carrier was hailed as a better carrier because of it's ergonomic  design and very natural to your little ones. when i put sufi inside, the extra weights i felt when carrying her with baby bjorn seems disappeared. more importantly i could carry her at the back and we both still look very cute with it haha

Tula best 👍 tq aunty @theshyshy Model: #wisesufi Photo by: @theanum

design - oh yes
functionality - oh yes yess
price wise - pricey ;(

drools, more droollssss

i guess sufi won this time haha


a better person

You are your own product.

I've read it somewhere, but it didn't really struck me until I heard on radio this morning. The fact that Sarimah the deejay completed her degree, got her martial arts thingy which I think on instructor level, she's also a pilates instructor certified etc etc made me realized that there's so much more in the world that you can learn, invest, be good at and make a living, who knows.

I am an IT person. People may say that I could do other part time IT stuffs such as website, coding, hard core programming but for me IT is my main source of income aka 9-6 job at the moment. Coming back home I have three kids to attend, and after dinner either I cook or buy from kedai, all energy left is for putting Sufi to sleep. Laptop is left untouched beside me. No more codes or even games which I could bear to stare at, not even lay my fingers on.

What else apart from IT skills? I guess I have baking. Baking is my other passion, but to be honest I can't stand baking 24-7 too. I learn baking from books (when you buy there some investments), youtube and by experiments since young. I went to classes as well but couldn't afford to go many, so I'm a bit picky about which ones is more suitable to attend. Some skills you need learn from a master, some you can train and build over time. Alhamdulillah so far baking is part of my financial aids and one of my future investments.

However, I have started to obsess with exercises and work-outs such as yoga, zumba and cardio classes quite recently. i still swim whenever i can. I've started yoga in 2011 and was pretty amazed at my own capability. I really liked zumba when I first went to the class until I thought I should be a zumba instructor in order to do zumba like everyday hahaha but where do i begin to get certified? whenever i see new shoplots area, i thought, what if i invested in a studio? not only that you lead a healthy lifestyle but probably you'll have more time to roam free :)

the other skill that i've always dreamed long time ago is learning foreign language. not only learning but i want to be fluent and able to converse like speaking english. back then when taking japanese during uni days, i did well and really enjoyed the whole experience. for me, learning new languages is way easier than computer languages hahahaha many years ago, i used to self-taught myself basic french and italians which i demonstrated in front of o.h and left him in awe. such a joy and victorious! when taking classes, it's a commitment but a good opportunity to meet people and build network.

as i am listing down the mentioned above, funds and time won't allow me to achieve all at once. but i guess i can do one by one, by setting up a short-term goal. at least until end of the year, i should be able do this or at a certain level of something. more realistic and manageable put less pressure on myself hence they're doable. the most important thing is to never give up and never think that it's too late for everything. there's always a start for something to begin.

pray hard and work smart, insyaAllah. later play hard :)


peminat sukan

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

sebagai peminat sukan agak tegar, so far 2014 ni banyak membuat aku senyum melebar. mana taknya, see the following list:

  • tennis - always top in my list. rafa nadal won his 9th french open, NINE titles ye. dengan itu dia still the no.1 player in atp rankings, cuma gap in points takdela banyak mana. vamos rafa!
  • golf - ok, aku tengok golf sekali-sekala, kalau nak borak golf sikit-sikit tu bolehlah but not the technical terms and stuffs ok. cerita sweet tu, bubba watson won his second Masters after the first one in 2012. kenapa aku suka dia despite his attitude yang tak berapa disukai tu? senang, he's a lefty :)
  • basketball - the only spurs i support, which is san antonio spurs. menang nba final semalam weh :)
  • football - juventus is a serie a champion for the straight 3rd times. the more important one, sekarang kan tengah world cup. dengan winning streaks yang aku sokong so far, adakah italia akan muncul juara? hahaahhaha apa punya superstitious laaa ni. anyhow, forza italia!!
nak terus senyum, wimbledon is starting next week. us open in august.
