She turns TWO!!

Stale story! Tidak apa la kan.. Just for my record! Hihihi..

My daughter, Ryanna Adrilea turns 2yo on 14th July. We love you always and forever girl!!!

Simple celebration by us at home. 

Same like previous year, I ordered the cake from my ex-collegue
One day, wish to order cake from Cath!
The cake was actually fell down from the seat when hubby brake the car!!
Sakit nya hati time tu!
Sorry Ryanna! Mummy fault!!

The birthday girl!

telur merah - tatap!!



Ryanna's milestone as at to date :

Her pick up words : 
Mummy - em-mi
Daddy - di
Mummy tua - uh-a
Koko (Rayyan) - tho-tho
Uncle - en-no (uncle's name instead!)
Susu - tsu-tsu
Sakit - du-du

The rest, she only able to pick up the end syllable i.e takut - kut, motor - to, kereta - ta... 

At least, she is better than Rayyan. Rayyan only able to converse at his age of 3! 

Ryanna is very cute, active, independent, good mood most of the time, enjoys catchy songs, dance, currently loves to watch Elmo, Ultraman and those series with kids. 

She often makes those cute actions and mimics to make us laugh especially when we are scolding her. Terus tidak jadi marah! Haihhh.. 

One thing bout Ryanna, she knows how to balance her body when she is bout to fall down. Macam dia kasi brake badan or kepala dia. Unlike Rayyan, kalau jatuh, jatuh terus. Hmm.. 

She loves her koko! She is very happy when koko is around. She duplicates whatever koko does! *faint* Tapi, kalau gaduh, tidak mau kalah!! 

Her milestones from newborn to 1yr, click here.

Perhaps I just upload a video of them in my next entry! ^_^

Till then, happy merdeka to all of you!

Ceritera Raya - Cameron Lagi!!

Two weeks before Raya, my uncle (at Gombak) came out with a last minute plan! To go for 1 nite vacay at Cameron on 2nd Syawal!

I was like "Cameron again??!!"... since we went there on CNY this year plus it was kinda nightmare juga coz of the congested road over there during peak season.

Yet... tidak sampai hati mau reject. Coz they  never been there before. So, was hoping for us to guide them. 

Luckily we managed to find vacant 3-rooms apartment. I was hoping to stay somewhere nearby the Berinchang nite market. But, all were fully booked. We have no choice but to stay at Rose Apartment, Kea Farm.

So, on 2 Syawal, we departed at 7.30am from home. My uncle waiting for us at Giant Gombak. Highway was smooth. Hubby speed sampai 160km/h! Uncle pun ikut juga!! Astaga!

We stopped by at... not sure which R&R.. and tapau KFC!! We heard that most of the Muslim's restaurant is closed. Restoran harapan - kedai mamak! Which will be very crowd and slow-service!

We reached Kea Farm before 1pm but only able to check-in after 2.30pm. And yes, mmg penuh dengan kereta di atas sana!! Supposed 10minutes drive journey turned 2hours!! *faint*

Oh ya.. wonder how many we are?

Our car - 4 adult + 2 child
Uncle's car - 5 adult + 5 child + 1 infant

Meriah kan??? Apa tidak, book apartment terussss!!! Hahahahah.. 

Ok.. sila cuci mata anda...

Rose Apartment + the view from balcony + living hall
Rental @ RM450/nite
Contact En Zainal 0194242178

Upon arrival, first thing first.. EAT!!! Semua kelaparan tahap dewa dewi! 

C Rayyan paling happy kalau jumpa tangga!
C Ryanna ada bestfriend! Lepak di balcony lagi!! Hehehe

Later that day, after eat and rest... we decided to hang out. Since mom wanna watch her taiwan drama (sempat lagik!!) and the other adults wanna nap, so only four of us - me, hubby, my uncle and her wife went out. Sorry kids, you need to stay too! Hehehhee.. 
At one of the strawberry farm. Unfortunately, the farm was closed. Kedai souvenir saja buka.
Notice my hubby's happy face? Happy coz he does not have to drive!

When we came out from the farm, we could see cars are queueing from the top hill!
So, we headed to the nite market. Need to hunt foods for dinner.
Tapi, hujan la pula time bejalan2 di pasar malam!! Tepaksa la juga beli payung! Haisss...

Malam... rehat2 and main2 sama the kids - lil cousins!!

The  next day...

Breakfast at mamak's restaurant. Service mmg super slow!!!

Giant fruits - Tempat wajib singgah!!
Notice my uncle menyusun anak utk begambar?? LOL

Cactus!!

Borong la apa2 yg patut sblm balik KL!

One thing kalau ramai budak, susah mau bergerak. So, this time tidak banyak jalan. Just singgah and one person turun beli apa2 yg patut. Yang lain tunggu dalam kereta saja!

Phewww... Don't think will visit Cameron in few years time! Other destinations pls!! Hihihi...

Ceritera 1 Syawal 2012

Hi ppl!! Am back from 1 week Raya break! Macam tidak pandai cukup2 bercuti kan! Padahal baru start masuk ofis! Hehehehe...

Straight to the point!

Tema Raya thn ni : Purple!!

Well, it was either purple or maroon. I got both colours tailored by Cath. Thanks Cath! I love your workmanship so very much!!

No, I didn't buy the kain purposely for Raya. Those kain were from Hubby during his trip to Bangkok and the other kain was from my ex-colleague during her trip to Phnom Penh! So, yang lain have to follow mummy's colour! Heheheh... Since most of them punya baju terbeli warna purple, so yeah.. purple-ling Raya la this year!

Standard 'tour' on 1 Syawal if we are not going back KK for Raya will be home-Sentul-Gombak..  

Comel kan mereka! Hehehe..

Us with mom and bro!

Family photo
Ini saja kuih raya saya tahun ni!  Taruh dalam basket sinang mau angkut! Heheheh

So after photo session at home, we headed to Sentul, sibling-in-law's house. FIL is there too. Unfortunately, MIL is in KK. She went back a week before Raya due to urgent matter.

@ Sentul


Hubby's sibling + Ayah

Next, Gombak-my uncle's house. As usual, the food at my uncle's house never fails to satisfy us!! The wife is really good in cooking!

House Painting!!

The idea of hse painting has been ‘there’ ever since we moved to our current house. I remember the previous tenant told us that they never paint the hse since they moved in (5 years ago!). And I have strong feelings that the house never been painted since day 1. From neighbor, we know that the apartments were completed in 1997. You do the Maths. *roll eyes*

Since Raya is just round the corner, hubby and I decided to proceed with the paintings last weekend. We bought the cheap-unbranded-water based paints seja. Rumah org lain jg kan! Hihihih.. 2 pails colours and 1 pail white. They cost us RM35/pail.

The idea was to finish the painting in a day which was Saturday. Alaaa… paint the living hall (+dining area) and perhaps kitchen (half top) only and not the entire house. Hubby gets his friends (2 persons) to help out. Kasih upah murah2. Hehehhee… while me, mom and the kids jalan2.

It turned out that hubby and friends only managed to complete 50% of the works. Ntah la apa masalah. Bnyk strategi konon! Or is it rehat yang bnyk! *sigh*

The 50% done painting!

We’ll definitely not going to bring the kids out again on the next day. Penat sudah kaki bejalan satu hari! Sepa suruh dorang lambat2 cat rmh.

So, yesterday, we all just stayed at home while hubby and friends finish their painting! With us around, cepat seja kerja dorang. Teda suara borak2 pula tu! Hahahaha…


Jaga!! Ada boss monitor!!

Upon completion, naaa… sibuk la kami kemas rmh!!! Aduiiii… body aching!!

Thanks Rayyan and Ryanna!
Padahal c Rayyan tolong dlm 5 minit seja. c Ryanna pula main air!! Adoiii!!


Mcm tadika bilang c hubby! *ignore*
To be honest, regretted the blue! Hmm.. tepa la..

Next mission (yang ntah bila akan tercapai), to paint our bedroom!!

Psstt.. mau raya sdh owh!! Tiba2 semangat raya! Tapi ntah kenapa tiada mood beli kuih raya!! Huhuhuh..

Meet Ups

I actually seldom hang around with friends. Maybe because hubby and I used to 'tail' each other since the very first day! Moreover, I am a stay-at-home person.

Nowadays, as much as I want to lepak with friends, I'll think of my mom who is getting tired day by day to take care of my kids, especially my daughter! She is just very active girl!! I'll talk bout Ryanna/Lily/E'ee next round ya.

Somehow, I managed to meet up with some friends before the fasting month and before I start work! Sorry kids, mommy needs a break! Heee...

Meet Up #1

Lunch with my ex-colleague, Lina. She's like a sister to me. She resigned from my current company a week before my wedding. So, for the past 5 years, we'll have lunch like once a year just to catch up stories. And we'll normally meet up when I wanna hand her our famous Kuih Cincin whenever I come back from KK. Heheheh...


Meet Up #2

Finally, after I think 5 mths from the first quick-hi at Amcorp Mall, Tunung and I mananged to arranged for hang out! Yep, it was our day! Not just lepak and makan, but we sukat the Times Square for 5 hours! Yet, it was not enough!! Hahahaha... We share almost the same life-stories. Share the almost the same taste on fashion. And yes.. we are looking forward to sukat other places again SOON!!   After Raya kio Tunung!! :)


Meet Up #3

Lunch with Nora. She is Sabahan blogger-friend that I known for, errrr... since 2009! Since our offices is just nearby, we'll sometimes have lunch together. We even went to SPA together July last year. Groupon's voucher ba! I didn't blog about it coz all pictures were blurry!! *sigh*  Btw, if you guys are looking for 2-rooms apartment to rent for vacay, you may contact her!



Meet up #4

This one is special case. Hehehe.. She was my ex-colleague too. She only worked for a year with my company. But, we managed to get along. Maybe coz we always share bout business stuff. Uisehh!! And she is very simple and sempoi person! The reason behind the meet up was actually I wanna passed her some selling stuff. Hahahahah... 


So, that's about it..  Hoping for more meet ups in future! *finger crossed*

Rayyan & 1st Semester (4yo)

A stale story! Since it's already in my draft, might as well kasih publish! Heheheeh...

When I was informed that Rayyan will be sitting for an exam for his 1st semester I was very worried. He doesn't even know how to spell and write his name (3yrs old sdh baru dia pandai ckp!), how can he sits for exam??

Teacher explained to me that there won't be writing exam for 4 yo pupils. More to padankan, bulatkan, warnakan.. I was kinda relief to hear that.

Then I realise that my purpose for sending Rayyan to kindie as early as 4yo is to improve his speaking skill. Am not going to put him under stress for As. Of coz it would be great if he doing well in exam. So I still helped him doing some revisions.

During the exam week, I noticed that Rayyan was slightly exhausted compare to his normal classes hours. After school, makan + nenen terus tertidur! Mesti dia penat jawab soalan kan. Kesiannnn betul..

The report card's day was held a week before semester break. Nervous juga la.

The 6yo pupils performed songs before the announcement follow by prize giving for Top 3 students from each class of 4yo, 5yo and 6yo.

Hubby and I were so happy when Rayyan's name was announced as the Top 2 student in his class!! 5 orang ja dalam class dia tapi semua girl!

Malu-malu dia kena panggil ambil hadiah! Hahaha

Rayyan being the only 'kumbang' in his class

With Ifa - Rayyan's best friend
Rayyan 1st Sem result! Terrer math mcm mumy dia! Hihihihi...

Hope he can performs better in the next semester! And yes his speaking skills is improving day by day! Siok bercerita sama budak2 tapi selalu ada soalan "kenapa"! Huhuhu..

Keep it up Rayyan! We are very proud of you!

No More Sexytary!

First and foremost, tepuk tangan for our Hero, Dato Lee Chong Wei! An awesome match indeed! Despite Silver, you still won GOLD for us!! Congrats Dato!!

So, it’s my 4th day working today! Yup, am no more the Secretary for my dear Datuk. In early June, the HR sorts of asking for my ‘permission’ before they hire new Secretary to replace me. For 9 months, a colleague has been assisting me and Datuk. Thanks Jamie!

All this while, she will be the one replacing me whenever I was on leave, mc, maternity leave, etc.. In fact, she replaced all the previous Secretary who does not stay long with Datuk. She has been working for 17 years with the Company. It’s her 1st job after SPM!! Phewww… Of coz she knows Datuk very well and yes she is the best ‘replacement’ person.

Unfortunately, she has finally served her notice of resignation and her last day of work was a week before end of July. I think she is trying to conceive. Good Luck Jamie!! Heeeee…

We had a farewell dinner for her at Restoran Nelayan Titiwangsa before fasting month starts. And yes we enjoyed the dinner very much.


With Jamie (center) and Mr Wong (ex-colleague)


All of us!

There are other photos too but due to mouse problem.. malas la!! Grrrrr...


Oya, why I can’t be Datuk’s Secretary anymore??! Coz working with Datuk could be super stress sometimes. And it’s not good for my recovery process! At the moment, I will be handling our Company website! Learning new things! Yeahhh… Again, thanks to Datuk and Company for the concern!

Actually, another colleague who in-charge of this website thingy has left. So, am taking over her tasks. We are in the midst of revamping our websites. I’ll be the ‘runner’ between the subsi and our web designer. Nampak senang kan! So yeah... No more sexytary! Heehehehehe...

Happy working anyway!
