hand me downs....

not being the first born, my son had been made to use so many hand me downs of his sisters since he was born....not his or his sister's fault. oh well...when i bought newborn stuffs for my girl, i very well had all that thought of. i bought unisex stuffs..the prints and colors. very minimal girly and pinky stuff. even the bath tubs are brown and peach. babies toys are mostly unisex anyway.

as they grew older, we had no choice but to get all gender specific clothings and nowadays even the toys are getting gender specific. so, we have stopped the hand me downs for my son except that i like this romper i got from a french boutique which was designed for girls. i could not resist but to put in on my son.

pool time....

i have been letting my children play with water.... at the shower, plastic pool and even sit by the sink to ensure that they eat their meal... i don't know how else to make them eat. i don't think it is a good idea... definitely freaks out my mother in law and my mum for fear they would catch a cold. so far, so good. thank god for that.

it is time to get a bigger pool to accomodate my two pool lovers. these are some of their pics in the plastic pool... they sure had a good time splashing....

my first Board Tender Committee Meeting

this morning, i attended my first board tender committee meeting, as a member that is, for a subsidiary company. my immediate superior is away in china so i replaced her for the meeting.

i rushed to the meeting, not wanting to be late and thank god, i wasn't. the meeting was chaired by an old but very wise and powerful looking man... he looked so familiar. i looked at the attendance sheet and saw his name, Dato' Yusof Ibrahim.... oh, he was on the Board for the subsidiary i used to work 11 years ago.

on one of the papers presented, he looked at me and said, 'yes Cik Puan, what does Procurement (Division) say? i went beserk...what do i say? it was quite a complicated subject being discussed. do we allow certain decision to be made? i commented on it (didn't feel inteligent saying whatever i said). based on my comments, he made a decision...

i can still hear him say.... if you have made rules and you bend them, you will not command respect anymore....

it was a nice feeling to be in this meeting.... i can now look forward to many similar meetings.

what i badly need.....

i really need a couple things for myself and i have been procrastinating looking for them or getting them. they are:

a few pairs of new baju kurungs - i have loads of unsewn material that need stitching. i have sent them to ipoh for my mother to find me a tailor. right now, i am waiting for them to get sewn.

a few pairs of office wears - i wondered the other day what had happened to all my office wear? it appears like i am running out of them. then, i realised that i had been pregnant for 2 years in a row and therefore, all my office wear were maternity apparels. and i can't fit into my old office wear either because my waist had expanded due to the pregnancies or i dont look nice wearing them due to my not so flat anymore tummy. therefore, i resort to my baju kurungs nowadays which make me look much older. and i dont like that. should i be preggers again so that i could wear all my elegant looking maternity office wears, hmmmm... i don't think so!!!

a new pair of court shoes - since i only wear either snowfly or hush puppies which are not on sale most of the times.....i have yet to make time and get onto it.

a new pair of spectacles - this is on urgent basis. my husband gave me an england optical voucher and i hope i will not let it expire.

a new hand phone - i can't afford the one that i really like....so, i have to wait!!!

a refill for my compact powder - i have not gone to a mall in months to get my estee powder refil.... i am adamant about using only estee...

hahhahhaha my list above is what my brain tells me... wanna know what my hearts tells me?!!!

tun razak musical....

i have been so bogged down with motherhood that i hardly have time of my own for anything at all....

a cousin of mine sent me an sms about noon to tell me that he has some tickets and asked me if i was interested in tun razak musical at istana budaya... and my darling husband surprised me by saying, 'i will take care of the children, you go'!!! wow, was that really him? so, me and my sister in law grabbed the opportunity.

i love the theatre.... it brings me back to the core of me, my passion for literature. it is as if literature runs in my blood.... my school days and university days...









breaking fast....

my son amazes me all the time…though, he has yet to speak, he has other ways of communicating to us his wants and likes and passions (he is passionate about his mummy all the time).

One of the things that he likes nowadays is to sit at the dining table during breaking fast and point at what he wants....

my first shoes....

my darling son has just got his first pair of shoes.

he is now into his 16th month. he had started walking for sometime but his steps were still wobbly. i tried a pair of slippers on him but the slipper on his left foot kept slipping off so i thought he wasn't ready yet. i wanted him barefoot so that his leg and feet muscles get stronger. i assume he would then be a steadier walker.

well, i think he is now.... he still looks wobbly a bit with the shoes on.... may be he would get used to walking in his new shoes....

what ramadhan holds for me....

it has been slightly over a week that the muslims had embraced the holy month of ramadhan...

for me, ramadhan means renewing efforts to offer the complete 5 times obligatory prayers and reciting the Quran with the hope that the efforts would sustained until the next ramadhan arrives. i try so hard to ensure that the ramadhan would mean much more than just being hungry.

this year, i added a new resolution which is to abstain myself from wasting food...had been quite successful at it. aside from that, i hope to achieve certain things and i think writing it down would help me to be more focused.

- i hope to be attain Allah's Blessings through my deeds...

- i hope to be the role model to my children...

- i hope to be diligent in teaching my children and providing them with opportunities that would help them with the learning process.

- i hope to be successful at being a mother, wife, home-maker, daughter and career woman.

- i hope to have a successful marriage (and not drive each other crazy)!!!!

and etc, etc and etc.....

re-reading my entry, i realised that there are so much that i have to work on. may be i should set my KPIs against the above and re-assess my achievement each ramadhan before i renew or add on to my list of resolutions....



salam ramadhan to everyone and may the month of ramadhan brings a deeper meaning to all of us.
