Sangat bz for the last 2 weeks..ambik nafas pun x berapa nak boleh...but now dah free!! hehe boleh buat sesuka hati di ofis :)
We are now in 1430H..new year with new hope! I'm not going to declare any of my resolution here, maklumlah bukan senang nak mencapainya..heheh so better simpan dalam hati aje :P
Anyway, i'd like to congratulate my lil sis for getting 8a's in her PMR. (Good achievement to start your new year!)...and also one of my friend who's just got pregnant ( a new addition of your family this new year - insyaALLAH)
Me also have some something exciting to start this new year ( but can't revealed it now lah..later ok). All in all saya tidak sabar menempuh 1430H dengan sesuatu yang baru (dan menggembirakan gitu...)

What's your toddler doing? At around 19 months, your toddler begins to understand when things don't conform to grownup ideas. She'll laugh at something that's obviously wrong — like calling a giraffe a zebra or calling a brother a sister. (She laughed seeing Pocoyo acted as Superpocoyo). She'll also notice when something isn't quite right, like an eye missing from her stuffed bear or a new stain on the carpet. (yup, she will alert me when her milk spilled 'mama, tupah (read: mama, tumpah)
Although you're probably still understanding less than half of what your toddler says, she's getting a handle on most of the words you use around her. She's also having a vocabulary spurt and putting together pairs of words, like "Me go" or "You put." ( plus: Babah, wetap [read: Babah, wake up], mama, cipat [read: mama, cepat], ish ish ucukkkk [read: ish ish busuk]
As for social development, go slow. Your toddler will get all the stimulation she needs from unstructured play, so steer clear of formal lessons, such as dance or music, until she's at least 3. Play dates give her a chance to play near other children, but don't expect her to truly interact just yet. (Her playdate so far is her favourite kakak Aqish-sampai termimpi2 okeh, suka sangat main ngan atis)
She's such a copycat now. Follow everything u do, anything u say. Staying one whole day in nursery, makes her bringing back quite a lot of new words and new 'behaviour' each day:
Qaisara: Mama, Mama
Me: No reply
Me: No reply
Qaisara: Mama, woi mama! [read in a very high-pitch sound]
And owh, she now has started to appreciate baby, pandai sayang baby (by trying to kiss, hug and play with the baby), eventhough she still refers herself as baby :)
But wait, this is not a hint that she'll be getting one at home to play with ;)
note: takziah to Aisyah, di atas pemergian ayahanda tersayang...semoga rohnya tenang di sana..

1) to pick up Qaisara from nursery
2) to fetch my husband at his office @ KLCC
3) to pick up cupcakes for our cousin's wedding in Keramat
4) to send the cupcakes to our cousin's house @ Taman Melati
5) to have dinner @ their house
So there we go. Hubby was fasting that day, and the moment i reached his office it was about time for iftar. Hubby requested to break his fast @ KLCC, nak makan dekat Manhattan Fish Market katanya..but i said 'kita makan kat rumah aunt Norlia je la, diorang dah masak dah pun...u beli roti dekat petrol pump je la dulu'
We stopped by and got some buns for him. Qaisara requested for her milk and i fed her as usual lah kan. 10 mins later, guess what? She vomitted her milk she drank and habis carseat depan...duhh.We stopped at other petrol station nearby, to clean up all the mess. Poor Sara kena pakai baju yang dia dah pakai during the day...sebab baju tido dah kotor (and we don't have spare shirt)
The journey continued, we reached Kak Chik's house to pick up the cupcakes. Qaisara looked ok..with her baju comot :P. She ate a few kuih raya, and drank some plain water. Half an hour later, off we went to Taman Melati to deliver the cupcakes. Being only about 10 mins in the car, she vomitted again! This time all kuihs and plain water came out...poor baby nangis lagi...plus seluar and tudung mamanya habis kena muntah. And oh, carseat belakang juge ya...
At Taman Melati she vomitted 3 more times, we decided to bring her to doctor. I called her caretaker to check what she ate, or did she fell or did anything happen today? She ate nasi lemak a bit today, the rest is as normal as the other day...hmmmm... was it nasi lemak?
At the clinic , 2 more times: before and after we met the doctor. Thank god x jumpa sesiapa yang dikenali...i was wearing purple-colour office wear with turqoise seluar jogging! Macam *n*o* ok. And final vomit of the day was after she drank plain water on the way back home. All those counted as 8 ? In 4 hours? Oh my....
We reached home at almost 12 AM. She was asleep by then. Lega gila bila dia minum susu twice throughout the night and x muntah lagi...thanks doc for the medicine..
Today she looks ok, hopefully she is ok. Please pray for her ya!
**can't imagine how the scenario would change if we were having our dinner at Manhattan Fish Market..masak mak nak oi

She was having high-fever on and off a week before raya, when the red thingy popped out, baru la kitorg tahu what makes her so cranky and uncomfy...
Malam raya: still in the mood for fireworks
Raya Day 1: The only decent pic of her, for the rest asyik nangis aje
The day Measles popped out
1) To give her coconut drink: no red spot hidden inside the body, all must out!
2) To not expose her to rain, this will lead to something worse (as they said lah)
3) No chicken, beef, seafood
4) No jalan raya
5) No etc
Unfortunately, babah couldn't stand the rule no 4. And the results, we keep kena marah everytime we go raya. Tension tul lah. Tension betul dgn babah. Sit still, no one shout at us. The end. Later still we can go raya...Grrrrrrr
On the 5th of raya...no more reddish body over Qaisara...so kira dah baiklah. Her nenek melaka was so kind-hearted that she prepared a green-colour paste to be applied to her body..Utk buang miang and sejukkan badan yang gatal, katanya.

I'm grateful to the One, as now her airways is not as sensitive as previous time. Her immunity gets stronger each and every day...no more nebulising session, yeay!
Am happy and glad to see her growing up in front of me. I bet, pejam celik pejam celik, kompom dah turn to anak dara anak aku niii..

First and foremost, Ahlan Wasahlan Ya Ramadhan..telah tiba juga bulan yang ditunggu2 umat Islam sedunia...semoga kita masing-masing memanfaatkan kesempatan yang ada ini, mengumpul pahala sebanyak yang boleh.
I found this upon my reading:
Do'a malaikat Jibril menjelang Ramadhan
"Ya Allah tolong abaikan puasa ummat Muhammad, apabila sebelum memasuki bulan Ramadhan dia tidak melakukan hal-hal yang berikut:
* Tidak memohon maaf terlebih dahulu kepada kedua orang tuanya (jika masih ada);
* Tidak berma'afan terlebih dahulu antara suami isteri;
* Tidak bermaafan terlebih dahulu dengan orang-orang sekitarnya.
Maka Rasulullah pun mengatakan Amiin sebanyak 3 kali. Dapatkah kita bayangkan, yang berdo'a adalah Malaikat dan yang meng-amiinkan adalah Rasullullah dan para sahabat, dan dilakukan pada hari Jumaat.
So saya ingin memohon ampun dan maaf, seandainya ada salah dan silap dan semoga kita sama2 mendapat kelebihan di bulan yang berkat ini...

Your Kisses Are Medium-Hot
Your kisses are definitely sexy, but you're not about to make anyone gasp for air.
You take it slow and steady... and you ramp things up when you get the right signals.
Your kissing style is adaptable and adept. And people who kiss you love it!

Di mataku kau begitu indah
Kau membuat diriku akan selalu memujamu
Di setiap langkahku ku kan
selalu memikirkan dirimu
Tak bisa ku bayangkan
Hidupku tanpa cintamu
Janganlah kau tinggalkan diriku
tak kan mampu menghadapi semua
Hanya bersamamu ku akan bisa
Kau adalah darahku
Kau adalah jantungku
Kau adalah hidup ku lengkapi diriku oh sayang engkau begitu sempurna
Kau genggam tanganku saat diriku lemah dan terjatuh kau bisikkan dan hapus semua sesalku
Janganlah kau tinggalkan diriku
tak kan mampu menghadapi semua
Hanya bersamamu ku akan bisa
Kau adalah darahku
Kau adalah jantungku
Kau adalah hidup ku lengkapi diriku oh sayang engkau begitu sempurna .. sempurna
Sayangku engkau begitu sempurna.. sempurna.. sempurna..

This activity was started on 2005, celebrating Aisyah's day...we did melalak 1 mlm kat karaoke, and got the chance to accompany her lingerie(s) shopping. Kelaka la time tu sbb most of us tak kawen lagi...Then, continue pulak with my party mid of 2006, held somewhere @ Sg Apa ntah nama dia (Miah, help dah lupeee) Best giler enjoying our BBQ sambil mandi2 sungai and having hair spa...besttt, mmg best..especially bila part knowledge sharing tu. I still remember, Faryna nye lamb sangat sedapp..dgn jagung bakar Aisyah lagi..*droool* And the most interesting part was we were freely to gossip and gossip without the presence of our boipren/hubby/fiance. Tapi cuak siot since Aisyah was pregnant that time, and siap boleh cramp masa mandi sungai huuu thank god, nothing happened.
Bachelorette (episode: lenot) was antara yang sadis..timing cam ok..tp last2 sikit je join..(yang tak tahan bride-to-be siap balik awal tu sbb kena pergi hospital ON CALL. Last2 tinggal kitorg je mandi pantai huuuuu. Resulting hotel room@PD tu jadi cam kosong je..still, we enjoyed ourself even though without the bride to be hehehehe
So for Harizah's one..a very memorable picnic@KLCC park, followed by body massage, foot spa, hair spa..pergh rasa macam princess. Stripper pon ade...Qaisara, Aqish and Dania volunteered themselves to replace the absent stripper (Nafis yang demam). Adala show sikit2 dlm bath tub *winks* Lupa lagi..we (read: aisyah n miah) did karaoke all night long. Enjoy siot!
All of all, yang paling best is when we can gather, and share all stories, nasihat2..and yang paling best flash back cerita zaman sekolah!
So who's party next eh?

-will kiss me (or anybody) when i (anybody) say sayang (mama/doll/anybody)
-will cium tangan if you say salam
-will dance when listening to the songs
-loves pocoyo and thomas n friends so much
-will clap her hands when she is happy

Yiha 2~We've gotten our house key!

Sorry peeps for not writing quite a long time..tak ada masa laa..Ok, mana mahu mula ye?
1) Jalan2 Kuantan
Kuantan Trip was organized by my hubby’s colleague. It’s kinda get-to-know-each-other-more event, basically our family and his other 2 friend’s family. Dunno what is so best about Kuantan that makes them deciding this place to go. Very the non-cuti2 Malaysia...but hey, ok la jugak sebenarnya Kuantan ni...ada nice beach (read=Swiss Garden Resort n Spa@Pantai Balok Beach), yummy (and damn cheap) seafood and ada Kuantan Parade n Berjaya Megamall hehe...
......the most important thing is: it's only me, hubby and Qaisara in a hotel room!
Only 3 of us, yeay!
This is our very2 first time 3 gether..selalunya mesti with Qaisara's Atuk/Nenek/Auntie's companion.Qaisara was really enjoying herself at the beach for the first time! So excited she was, but unfortunately x boleh mandi pool/beach sebab selesema.
Happy Sandy Time!
A week after Jalan2 Kuantan, kitorg pegi pulak ke Phuket..pity little Qaisara kena tinggal. Personally i think Phuket is not suitable for baby at the age of Qaisara bcoz:
1) The weather is hot (me sunburn, siap mengelupas2 kulit)
2) Baby still can't enjoy Thai Massage (which we really feeeeell it!)
3) I don't think baby can stay at the beach from the sun rise, until almost 12 PM (which we really can)
4) Tak romantikla bawak Qaisara..(give us some sweet time together eh baby)
3) Qaisara’s First Year
She turned 1 on 8th of April. She ate a lot sampai tergolek2 penat on that day, claimed the caretaker@the nursery. My baby..tapi sekarang semakin manja..tak boleh berenggang langsung dengan her babah and mama. Why eh? Bukan dah besar lagi 'macho' ke?
A week before her birthday was really a drama..Mula2 fever, and then bronchiolitis again: being the worst ever in her 1st year of life. Need to be nebulised every 3 hours resulting her mama EL lagi for 2 days. Thank god Qaisara's paeds was really helpful (siap bagi nebulizer machine lagi, so Qaisara doesn't need to be admitted) Alhamdulillah after 1 week, she recovered.
Her first birthday bash was held at her nursery. It was a simple celebration only, since Qaisara pun tak reti appreciate lagi the celebration. Tapi mama and babah telah berjaya membuat goodie bag Qaisara with her favourite cartoon on it. Sangat gigih melipat sampai pukul 2 pagi ok..
..........and her face at the back
Cake cutting with mama n babah
Dah tido...ngantuk rupanya
more pics will be uploaded @ my flickr

Most of people who surround me was like, really celebrating the results of our General Election. Hubby and in-laws stayed up until 4AM waiting for the results (sorryla wa nak tunggu, dah penat standby kat spr siangnya tuu). I wake up in the morning with a very big surprise: witnessing 5 states now being taken by the opponents..yeah indeed a big surprise (kudos!)
I don't want to comment much on this, because i don't really care that much..i just wish:
1) Free toll
2) 1.92 per litre of fuel, and no other increasing figure on the metre!
3) A totally free education and medication
To you who have power now, please please please prove it to us that you guys can do it and help us. And lastly, to you guys who ' kalau potong jari gerenti darah kaler biru':
This is not the time for emotions. We must regroup and not lash out at anyone. Chaiyo!

Well for me it depends on the owner itself. Anyway, it's your blog: so suka hatila nak buat apa pun kan? I blog for fun, (sebab tu selalu x update heee). Some people blog for business (marketing strategies), some people blog to share their opinion n to voice out their concerns, to share with public what their life are like, what they do everyday bla bla..some blogs give good tips on cooking, babycare, grooming, health-concious, politics and so on
Just now i browsed one regular blog i visited, and i can smell 'a war' there. Hmmm..should i say perang mulut or somethin? When readers/visitors comment something that may hurt the bloggers, start la berbalas2 comment which bila baca merah jugela telinga and (or) muka...
Well, face the music..you open your blog to public and expect everybody to compliment, to say oh i agree with you, or to say what a good writing you have done! Of course that won't happen. Sebab ramai manusia dimuka bumi jenis yang hasad dengki n asyik x puas hati je tgk org lain bergembira..biasala tu kan..
Sebab tu ada ramai jugak blogger yang restrict the access only to invited readers aje..so boleh la dia control the readers. Hmmm comment pun boleh tapis dulu sebelum being viewed inside the blog. That sounds more practical, aite? So bloggers yang open the blog to public? Why should you be so offensive when it comes to things like this? it's the risk, and of course you have way to settle it. Restrict aje access..Biar padan muka org yg comment jahat2 tu x dpt baca lg heee. Sometimes i feel sympathy for them, but actually it's you to decide how it should be managed.
Morale of the story, selamba badak aje la...klu nk ramai org baca (and comment) your blog, open it to public, or else restrict aje access.
note: saya menghabiskan masa standby di satu tempat and have to stay here till 12am, national interest punya reason la konon..tu yg merapu ni..bosan! me want to go home!!!!!

-Bekerja gigih supaya dapat naik pangkat hehe
Of health and beauty:
-Managed to get my ideal weight, but now again: underweight :((

What has not been achieved:
-Muka yang cantik dan licin. Uncontrollable acne during my pregnancy, causing the 'comot'-est face i have now. And no facial treatment until now. Poor me. it's true.
What to achieve:
-To gain weight
-Facial treatment-go away acne!
-To get rid of the stretch mark.
Wah banyak nye. Mampukah? Good luck to me
--12 Muharam 1429
Wednesday, January 09, 2008
MUHARAM adalah bulan pertama dalam tahun Islam (Hijrah). Sebelum Rasulullah berhijrah dari Makkah ke Yathrib, kiraan bulan dibuat mengikut tahun Masihi. Hijrah Rasulullah memberi kesan besar kepada Islam sama ada dari sudut dakwah Rasulullah, ukhuwwah dan syiar Islam itu sendiri.
Pada asasnya, Muharam membawa maksud 'diharamkan' atau 'dipantang', iaitu Allah SWT melarang melakukan peperangan atau pertumpahan darah. Namun demikian larangan ini ditamatkan setelah pembukaan Makkah (Al Baqarah: 91). Sejak pemansuhan itu, umat Islam boleh melaksanakan tugas dan ibadat harian tanpa terikat lagi dengan larangan berkenaan.
Peristiwa-peristiwa penting di bulan Muharam:
1 Muharam - Khalifah Umar Al-Khattab mula membuat penetapan kiraan bulan dalam Hijrah.
10 Muharam - Dinamakan juga hari 'Asyura'. Pada hari itu banyak terjadi peristiwa penting yang mencerminkan kegemilangan bagi perjuangan yang gigih dan tabah bagi menegakkan keadilah dan kebenaran:
- Nabi Adam bertaubat kepada Allah.
- Nabi Idris diangkat oleh Allah ke langit.
- Nabi Nuh diselamatkan Allah keluar dari perahunya sesudah bumi ditenggelamkan selama enam bulan.
- Nabi Ibrahim diselamatkan Allah dari pembakaran Raja Namrud.
- Allah menurunkan kitab Taurat kepada Nabi Musa.
- Nabi Yusuf dibebaskan dari penjara.
- Penglihatan Nabi Yaakob yang kabur dipulihkkan Allah.
- Nabi Ayub dipulihkan Allah dari penyakit kulit yang dideritainya.
- Nabi Yunus selamat keluar dari perut ikan paus setelah berada di dalamnya selama 40 hari 40 malam.
- Laut Merah terbelah dua untuk menyelamatkan Nabi Musa dan pengikutnya dari tentera Firaun.
- Kesalahan Nabi Daud diampuni Allah.
- Nabi Sulaiman dikurniakan Allah kerajaan yang besar.
- Hari pertama Allah menciptakan alam.
- Hari Pertama Allah menurunkan rahmat.
- Hari pertama Allah menurunkan hujan.
- Allah menjadikan 'Arasy.
- Allah menjadikan Luh Mahfuz.
- Allah menjadikan alam.
- Allah menjadikan Malaikat Jibril.
- Nabi Isa diangkat ke langit.
Doa Akhir Tahun dibaca 3 kali pada akhir waktu Asar atau sebelum masuk waktu Maghrib pada akhir bulan Zulhijjah. Sesiapa yang membaca doa ini, Syaitan berkata:
"Kesusahan bagiku dan sia-sia lah pekerjaanku menggoda anak Adam pada setahun ini dan Allah binasakan aku satu saat jua. Dengan sebab membaca doa ini, Allah ampunkan dosanya setahun"
Tidak lupa juga berdoa meraikan kedatangan 1429H:
Doa Awal Tahun dibaca 3 kali selepas maghrib pada malam satu Muharram. Sesiapa yang membaca doa ini, Syaitan berkata:
"Telah amanlah anak Adam ini daripada godaan pada tahun ini kerana Allah telah mewakilkan dua Malaikat memeliharanya daripada fitnah Syaitan"
