Crazy finger puppets

I am always looking for new things to entertain and keep Nyla's busy during the weekend.

I bought that lamaze wrist and sensory sock, you know the black and white socks with attached butterfly and bug. Luq love that.

So last weekend we made finger puppets. It kept Ny occupied and mummy is happy helping her paste all the colourful stuffs on the felt. Doing craft is very therapeutic for me.

Things you need:-

1. Colourful felt cut into shapes.
2. Scissors
3. Craft glues
4. mini pom pom
5. Wiggly eyes
6. Pipe cleaners
7. Colourful ribbons

And once they'e done, they become the perfect companion to singing, playing and story telling.

My heart

6 months ago, I would reached my mum place from work, rush to Nyla's room to give her a big hug followed by asking her to scoot inwards the bed just so that I can snuggle in with her. I would ask her how was school, ask about her speech and drama class, asked her what did teacher Jun teach today, did she went to the playground after school with Sabrina and Nichelle, asking what she had for dinner.

That's the routine I had 5 months ago for 5 years.

Now, once I reached my parents place, I would barge in my parents room just to stare at this boy.

Last night, his Kakak march out of her room and said, 'Mummy you don't want to hug me first ker?'

Oh my heart!

Luq's Majlis Kesyukuran

We had Luq's majlis kesyukuran when he was 10 weeks old, a week before puasa.

This time I had fun planning his event. We engaged Little Rizq Chulla. Love it! The pelamin was such a big hit.

This time round we had a really chill majlis, unlike the sister, yang ni relek sikit. No marhaban, no makcik makcik yg I tak kenal. My aunties have the habit of inviting their friend over. hahaha

'Datang lah majlis cucu abang I, datang eh'
'Jah, this one mummy's fren at work, I jemput dia'
'Jah, this one kawan kerja cik ona, dia kenal mak kau, I jemput'

And my parents will always welcome all my auntie's friend with open arms.

Anyway, food was cooked by Datin. I am so blessed to have family members who will chip in food.

'I bikin mee soto'
'I dah ordekan you roti boyan and bubur kacang hijau'
'I sponsor beefsteek'
'I buat pasta and chicken salad'

Alhamdullilah.

We create a kids corner. Angkut Nyla's portable TV and on Despicable me so that mak mak can catch up on their gossip. Bibik bibik also can relek.

I totally forget the existence of this blog.
Here is my jantung hati, Muhd Luq Syaqil.

Happpy belated Raya everyone, Maaf Zahir dan batin.

Gender Neutral

The sistas screamed when I shop for baby L's clothing at Melbourne


'Why you buy gold for baby boy???' 'You need to get more blues!!!!'


'Perangai makcik sei you!!!!'


'Boy cannot wear gold, tak kena'


I look at her husband who was looking so cluelss wearing a black with gold lettering prining on his baju.


Terus senyap....

Little one


I have installed many of those pregnancy apps on my iPhone, and it’s been fun to check in a few times a week and see what baby is up to!

Right now, he  is the size of a large honeydew (43.7cm long from head to heal and weigh around 2kg). My last check up he was around that length and weight. Alhamdullilah. 

Since baby’s sense of movement and ears are fully developed, Baby L can hear me sing and the surah I on-ed from youtube. I always whine to S, 'Baby L ni tak boleh duduk diam' but I secretly love it. It’s the best reminder for me that this is happening and baby is doing alright in there.

Its been 5 years. At time I find myself daydreaming a lot about life with this new little one.  What it will feel like to hold this little new born close to my body and cuddle and sing and love on it all over again like when I was with Ny. Will I be biased, be fair to share the love?

5 years ago, as a new mum, I struggle with many things. It was not a 'boring' phase. It was definitely not easy. She was preterm and at time we need to go down to either KK or polyclinic 3-4 times a week. Her jaundice was terrible. Doctor from KK only gave clearance when she was about 2 months. I struggle with breastfeeding too. From birth to around 1 Month, doc adviced me to stop from breast feeding her due to breast milk jaundice. Not sure what it means, I don't even understand when I Google it. My aunt joked 'Harap (.)(.) berlambak but no susu' sikit pun tak kecik hati, as I was so so determined to breast feed her even if not exclusive. I keep expressing my milk. The pump was my best buddy at that time.

This time round hopefully it will be different. I have pre-prepared all the items. 5 years ago, due to preterm, everybody kalang kabut. Dah terbranak baru nak carik crib, baru nak beli bottle, baru nak jahit bantal. From the labour ward before the insertion of oxytoxin, I remembered instructing my sisters 'Ty, You go take the crib from the seller at Tanah Merah' 'Na, you go mothercare buy the mattress, use this size den go Ikea buy the crib sheet' 'S later you go down kat mothercare buy all the shampoo lah, sabun lah' 'Ayah, you help me take some baby baju from Simei to Hougang, adi dah ketepikan'

IT WAS HECTIC!!!!

I learn my lesson... this time kita settle all first den kita chill and relek....

Happy baking adik! We love you!

Bows for kekasih

Received a whatsapp msg from a bro early this week 'Sis, my wife is crazy about your bows, can I order 5 bows in shades of pink, slightly bigger than ur normal classic bows?' 'Valentine present ker?' 'No lah, just a surprise gift' Settle Bro!  To any wife out there if u receive these set over the zweekend, ur one lucky lady, and I hope u love the bows.
