After 4 Wonderful Years..

19 September yang lepas genaplah 4 tahun status saya sebagai isteri…Now with 2 kids…Dania Saffiya-3yrs,and Muhammad Nadzim Muhaimim- 1yr 10 months..
I would like to jot down some memories of each of the family members…

This year I enter the 3rd year of being a contract staf at KL.(sighhh..bile la nk dpt tetap ni..)My contract will end on 22nd November 2007,already apply for another year.
At work my team has been added another 3 assistant officer or assistant technician.Plus F11& F14 made our team the biggest team in our department. Being a leader of total of 13 staf is not an easy task,furthermore 60% of them is above of my own age (between 35-45 yrs old).
When at home I am a mother,a chef and a maid.Everyday I’m trying to be a better mom.In our daily routine, I actually paksa or training myself to cook for my husband and our kids.Its neither that we’ve never eat outside food nor my cooking is superb,but I’m trying to avoid of being dependant to outside food,plus they add a lot of msg (monosodium glutamate) to make the food tastier.I also believe that ‘ada berkat for air tangan seorang ibu’.
I got one property-a car-.From the very 1st day I enter uni I always dream to buy a car to make my life easy.If u know my uni,it has the biggest land for education. Plus my new faculty is so far from my college.Thus, I only afford buying a car on august 2005,the 1st mpv model for perodua.Now it had turn 2 yrs on last august.

He changed his work once, now 2nd year in an oil n gas company. Previous job at one of the Telekom Contractors for about 5 yrs. I hope he enjoyed working at the current place.I could car pool with him everyday.Though now hes been calling to another interview at another oil n gas company.I’m not so happy coz the company technical office is at cyberjaya.If got the offer then I have to drive alone from Cheras to KL (huh xsuka..xsuka) or should we consider buying a new property in Gombak as agreed.
At home he is the one who have to ‘layan’ the kids while I cook.He will change their nappies,feed them and bring them to sleep.
His wira is now turning to 7 year this year.Monthly installment is finished and I’m not allowing him to change into his dream car..hahaha..not now dear..
The only thing that I still regret is until now we cant perform our solat berjemaah.We are busy with our own multi task and I hope soon when the kids are bigger we could perform the solat together.

Dania Saffiya
The eldest,the kakak she called her own self.From born till now,she love to cry.She will cry to the top of her lung if she wants our attention.In another words..kuat mengamuk…
Walk at 13 months, memorise ABC-Z,1-10 at 16 months.Now her vocabs are really suprising me.She speaks well..meaning that xdelah pelat..sometimes mcm org tua pulak.
She would remember almost everything she saw.I’m surprised that she even still remember the warm water from telaga air panas in langkawi during our visit last march.
Since last june she already can get rid of the diapers/disposable nappies.I only put her diapers if she falls asleep.
Latest, she refused to drink her formula milk,starting to slow down with formula made her ate a lot.

Muhammad Nadzim Muhaimim
His nenek gombak would called him ‘Muhammad’.I & Hubby called nadzim..or ajim..or emim..or muhaimim..or adik.
Now love to follow her kakak..every single words or actions.He can memorise ABC, 1-10..but malas.But I can see he really love coloring.He will lay down coloring or more to conteng the coloring book.
Walking at 14 months and now try to improve his vocabs.he seems a bit ‘pelat’.Would speaks half of the word we spoke to him.For example..we said..Bukakla…he said..ukak..aa…Compared to his kakak…its easy to handle him from born till now.He is not the type of night feeding babies like her kakak. After his last milk on 9pm, he will sleep till I put him at the nursery at 6.30am every morning. He was a chubby baby before, now losing and maintaining the weight and become taller.

Four of us after 4 wonderful years..:D

Changing Plan

Eversince the DNA test is confirmed nurin’s, I ‘m stuck of thinking about my kids, where should I send Dania n Nadzim for primary school?
It seems that KL is no more a safety place to grow up.
One minute you get carried away,might regret you till death.

The earlier plan is to send Dania to CBN and Nadzim to St John. It will be easy for me to pick them after school.For sekolah agama I choose to send them either at masjid Negara or masjid jln duta.
I would sacrifice my lunch time then,just to make my kids will be well educate.

But now most probably the whole plan will change. I’m so worry of schooling them here in KL. What if I‘m late to pick them? say if I attend meeting or else or worse..stuck in jammed.

My mom proposed to sent them to sekolah agama al amin.Just 5 minutes walk from her house.The school is private Islamic school.Nak lagi mahal anta ke IIS.Pun dekat situ jugak.
The fees really doesn’t bother me.InsyaAllah we will find the damnest way to save some money in order to make sure my kids is educated.

I’m a bit worry of if they finish primary, then to secondary,they are not selected to enter any boarding school (the government).macam..ohh da gi private so next step private lah..where I want them to enter any of the boarding school.Tak kisah to MRSM ke Seri puteri ke..sekolah sains ke…

So just now I chatted with my old asrama mate…Shes a cbner..huh bangga betul dia dgr nak anta ke cbn…(nasib bbgs da jauh mazrah…:P)
She is now a teacher at one of the MRSM.She said that I can sent them to private and apply for boarding school for secondary.(referring MRSM).It is because MRSM is Semi Govermnt.Besides, she said that one her student is ex-sekolah al amin gombak.siap puji lagi akhlak bagus…

Well I still need to discuss with hubby for this matter. Actually we did agree to buy our 2nd house at gombak, just couldn’t find the right house yet. The one that fit our budget since hubby decide to keep the current house.
Heh maybe all of u think I’m too advance..ok Dania is just 3 yrs old. Why too much worries..?Tak apa lah kan…huh??The next 3 years pun kejap je tuu…

Alfatihah utk Nurin

Pagi semalam semasa dalam perjalanan ke ofis, saya mendengar radio KLfm,bersama2 ustaz wan sohor bani leman membacakan alfatihah agar nurin segera ditemui.tak sangka…tghri tu nurin benar2 disahkan mati..

Terkejut dengan penemuan mayat bdk ppuan dalam beg beberapa hari lepas,smalam lagi terkejut bila polis umumkan dna bdk tu match dengan ibu bapa nurin jazlin yang hilang genap sebulan semalam.
Sebagai seorang ibu dapat saya rasakan betapa hampa..geram..kesal dan marah pada penjenayah yg melakukannya.
Kalo ikutkan hati mau saja kita seksa penjenayah tu sampai mati..sebagaimana yang telah dia lakukan pada org lain…
Betapa tidak..keadaan si kecil yang tidak berdaya..mati dalam keadaan yang sungguh terseksa…zalim sungguh manusia…

Zaman sekarang sungguh mencabar betul nk membesarkan anak..dengan kesihatan..maupun keselamatannya...sungguhpun mereka hanya berada di sekitar kawasan rumah sendiri…
Buat adik nurin…alfatihah..semoga berbahagia di sana menemui Pencipta yg Maha Esa…
Buat keluarga en jazimin…banyak2 kan bersabar…dan tabah..ini dugaan yang maha hebat.InsyaAllah nurin sedang menunggu kalian di pintu syurga…….

Life isnt complete if...

Been tagged by liasari..

Life isn’t complete if I don’t get to:

  • i would kiss hubby’s hand and he kiss my forehead before went to work.
  • Surfing,blogging and uploading some pictures to pcm,blog or fotopages.
  • Reading online newspaper..utusan/berita harian.
  • Hug n kiss my kids when we reach home.
  • Cook!!..i must make sure that at least I cook ½ or ¾ of a week.
  • Off to tesco for weekly shopping for groceries.
  • Once or twice a week my lunch time would be spent either at sogo or jln tar.heh window shopping tau!!...
  • Walking..i love to walk.Its the only exercise I did.Tak kisah walk to the masjid jamek lrt, then from klcc station up to the 1st floor of isetan. Not to mention walk thru sogo/jln tar for window shopping I did.In fact dulu2..masa skolah rendah..i used to walk to sekolah agama..and during uni time..i used to walk from kolej kelima to fakulti veterinar to attend classes..(lbh kurang sama jarak 31/2 padang bola)
  • Adding my wishlist for my house.I wonder when my house will be full furnish and nicely decorate.

Blueberry Cake

Is my birthday cake this year.saje nk tukar.normally hubby would buy choc moist cake for us.Yesterday my hubby n I on leave.Lepak2 rumah..masak..masak..but hubby pulak ada assignmt kena siapkan.So my ever workholic hubby just sit infront his laptop until 3pm.uhh..ingat cuti boleh dating2 dua org..Petang lepas asar baru we all went to jusco,beli kek..balik potong n mkn with our kids.. :D

Nasi Ayam, Family Gathering

My 1st attempt to make Nasi ayam was on last saturday.The Nasi,ayam,kicap was nice.But the sambal somehow masam sket..so next time i know what to add..whats not.

On sunday we attend to family gathering at the old atuk's house at gombak.The purpose of having this gathering..biasalahh..kenduri tahlil utk arwah.Lama jugak x jumpa all my cousins..huhu nama saje duduk kt gombak..tapi mmg jarang jumpa..raya lah sekali je..

Sedara mara saya almost everywhere in KL.I think yang paling jauh pun at Petaling Jaya.Kalo dulu-dulu masa raya,rumah atuklah paling meriah.Memang x kering tangan nenek buat air n basuh pinggan.

Sedih je rasa sbb keadaan sangat2 berlainan...time raya rumah atuk sunyi sepi.Sekarang yg duduk situ Paksu n family.Rumah tu atuk kata utk Paksu n Mak.Mak pulak dah beli tanah lain dan buat rumah.

Sedih sbb everytime ke rumah tu teringat arwah nenek.Kalo cuti skolah,mmg kami 3 org duduk lepak umah nenek.seberang jalan je dari rumah kami yang lama.masa tu 3 org lg adik blom lahir..Ingat lagi..kalo time makan nenek akan ambil besen sederhana besar..letak nasi,lauk utk cucu2 dia makan.dia suap sendiri..berebut2 kami mcm anak burung.selain kami anak pak anjang pun ada 2-3 org yg lebih kurang sebaya kami.itulah 'berkat' air tangan dia sampai sekarang kami x pernah lupakan nenek..

Setiap hari kalo masuk maghrib mesti nenek panggil saya ke surau bersama-sama.Lepas isyak baru balik.Kalo di surau ada kuliah ke apa..nenek lah org nya yg akan susun kuih muih yg dibawa..susun cawan2 dlm dulang.keesokkannya kalo kena time cuti..saya lah org yg di ajak utk cuci pinggan mangkuk yg da pakai tu.

Kalo duduk2 depan tv..nenek suka tgk cerita arab.everytime kluar subtitle mesti nenek suruh bacakan.Saya x pasti kenapa..mugkin sbb nenek malas nk pakai cermin mata or dia x boleh baca rumi.kalo tulisan jawi dia boleh baca.

atuk pulak org nye serius sket.dulu2 dia ada kedai runcit.tp da tua xde dah.
atuk kalo baring2 suka cucu2 dia cabut uban..kiralah..sehelai 1 sen..dapat 10 helai..dpt lah 10sen..tp selalunya atuk akan bg lebih upahnya...:)

Masa tua atuk dia gemar berkebun.dia ada tanah kebun di sepang dan di jenderam.masa tu rasa jauh sgt nak pegi.kalo atuk ada lg skang mesti dia sronok.highway melingkar2 ke sana.tanah kt sepang tu pun kalo dinilai dah berjuta2 harga nya.
pendek kata seronok kalo melepak kat rumah nenek..haha lg satu kalo saya gi mandi sungai.mak sure marah giler.tp nenek backing giler..uhuh cucu dia yg sorang ni jgn dimarah...hehehe..sebut pasal sungai biasanya nenek dan mak anjang akan masuk ke dlm ladang estate..utk basuh kain kat sungai..at least 2x seminggu.jgn terkejut sbb sungai nya bersih sebersih2nya.langsung xde pencemaran.nk minum direct pun boleh.air sungai jernih..sampai nampak anak ikan yang berkeliaran.skang ni kawasan tu dah xde...dah buat UIA..sungai2 pun dah dialih arah.
kat rumah bukan xde mesin basuh..tp seronok kot membasuh di sungai..air bersih..mengalir..disamping tu mandi skali...syokkk..

kalo diimbas mmg byk yg nak dicerita..x muat blog ni...

insyaAllah bila2 dlm bulan pose ni saya akan pergi ke kubur arwah nenek dan atuk.aktiviti biasa saya dgn pakcik saya..membersihkan kubur sambil membaca ayat2 suci.dah kawen ni ada sekali dua x dpt pergi..maklumlah..anak lg..kerja rumah lg..

ini gamba masa gathering on sunday..dah uzur rumah nenek..

Dania's Birthday Bash

Ok..about dania’s birthday bash…
Kali ni buat birthday party..1st time jemput kwn2 online…Biasanya jemput immediate family saje.
Ada 3 acara actually hari tu.Pagi marhaban cukur jambul anak buah,tghri kenduri nk pose.Mak mmg biasa buat kenduri ni.Petang baru birthday dania.
Majlis berlansung lancar pada pagi..then tghri ok lg…sampai kol 2.30 tiba2 mak sibuk2 nasi habis..kelam kabut masak yang baru.
Dalam hati saya da risau.nnt kwn2 yg datang petang sure terperangkap dlm ramai2 jemputan yg lewat ni.Actually lps tghri kenduri tahlil n doa selamat tu,selesai saje org surau dan masjid, family adik ipar datang.(I thought je the immediate family..but yg dtg mcm satu kampong saje).
Untuk petang kami tempah sate, char kuehtiaw,kuih muih,roti jala.
Pada saya sume x kena aritu..1st nasi x cukup utk tghri..2nd org sate lupa nk letak timun n nasi himpit..3rd roti jala mak kluarkn utk org marhaban pagi tu…so sampai petang da abis.Nasibla ada kuih2 lain.Kalo u all nk tahu..saya x mkn pun aritu.Pagi tu mkn nasi sejuk n lauk sambal smalam.Maghrib baru sentuh nasi n lauk udang tempoyak.Tgh sibuk2 mcm tu mmg x lalu nk mkn.
Sate langsung x rasa..yg rasa charkuehtiaw tu je sket2…

Masa ni kak js da sampai..kesian diorg sbb terperangkap tgh2 ramai org tu.Nak ajak masuk dlm, dlm pun penuh dgn family adik ipar.family kami duduk kt dapur je..hahaha..
Lepas tu watie n family..erin n family…nina n family..phira n family pun sampai.
Then officemate,hazren, izan,fitri..ayu n family..
Kawan-kawan hubby pun dtg gak time ni..Soh Hong n family,Thessla,Harilee n family..

Agak2 keadaan dah reda sket..dlm kol 4.30 baru keluarkan birthday kek..
Kali ni ada theme..sesame street..kek dania pulak bentuk muka elmo.Punya lah suka dia tgk kek tu.Kek shida yg buatkan.we all amek the nite b4.bila sampai rumah mak, dania terus mintak potong..hehehhe
Time potong kek..masa ni kak js n family da balik..so diorg x dpt tgk.The rest dapatlah jugak.
Dalam kol 5 lebih...masa ni forummer dgn officemate dah balik..barulah muncul zam dgn shiem n family masing2..
Dalam kol 6 camtu jemputan sume balik..tinggal officemate hubby..diorg borak2..officemate dia yg sorang ni mmg kaki borak..
Kepada kengkawan sume…mintak maaf la sbb majlis x teratur..insyaAllah lps ni on December utk nadzim..hopefully much more better.Kali ni buat di cheras.saya tgh berkobar2 nak masak sendiri kali ni.macam x puas je tempah tp hasilnye x seberapa..
Dah plan nk buat mee kari n nasi goreng cina..but don’t be surprised kalo menu nye bertukar nanti..hehehe.InsyaAllah guys…wait 4 the invitations ye…

My Birthday Present

I know I should write about dania's birthday bash last week..but couldnt help writing this entry coz I'm so excited..sgt2 teruja..
When September comes..there are 2 important that should or mandatory have to be remembered..that are..my birthday on 9th and our annivesary on 19th.
For the past 3 years..the celebration is in a simple or minimum situation.For the 1st year, I was in confinement days.So my husband only bought a nice choc moist cake after the days.2nd year,I was heavily pregnant my 2nd child.We only celebrate a nice lunch at TGI Fridays.Itupun pegi hari Jumaat,and I had to lepak there alone almost 1 hour coz hubby went to Friday's prayer.
The 3rd one..at this time we had move to our very own house.There's so much things need to be settled and my husband just move into a new job.We had to postpone the celebration until Mac 2007.We went to Langkawi,had a restful vacation and at this time hubby bought me 1 set of vision and 1 complete set of corning ware.This, he said considered as the present.hehe..
So the 4th one this year, what did i got?
Hint 1# (at MIL house)
hubby: dekat semua house ada Habib tak?
hubby:takdela tgk dlm paper ada sales up to 40%
me:ohh sales tu..kdg2 depend pada outlet..
Hint 2# (next day at my mom's house)
hubby:jomla kluar kejap..beli ketam (actually dania demam panas..nak buatkn sup)
me:ehh nape gi sini..gi giant la (dia ikut jln gi jusco pulak)

when we reached jusco, hubby went straight to habib.eh..eh mamat ni..At habib ada a few couples yg tgh tgk the jewelleries.We hubby asked the items that he saw on the paper.I'm not interested on those items..but i'm more interested in 'other' items..such as the bracelet,bangles and the diamond rings.hahaha.
When hubby asked me to choose..I'm just like..uuhhh betul ke husband aku ni.There is a bracelet and a diamond ring that get my attention but at the end I asked him to go to habib at alamanda for more choices..

That night, after we reached home, and I finished unpack everything..suddenly my husband said he wants to go out.to the Habib Merdeka sales at ampang..whatttt???
FYI..the sales only started on 10pm onwards..I dont know the closing time, but suprisingly the oulet mmg kena serbu.I can hear bising sgt when he called me asking me, what did i want.
I think hes back at around 12++pm..I cant remember..too sleepy.Open the door and sleep back.
That morning he showed me what did he bought for me.after 55% he got the present that fit his budget.If u know my husband, he is the type of wants to make sure that every single cent he spent is worth.That's why when he did buy me this nice white-gold-diamond ring,makes me soo excited..hehe..i'm so happy :D
