Short escapade in the city



It's our usual annual hideout.

PNB Perdana Hotel & Suites near KLCC. Because it is nearer to husband's office, and he has been working over the weekend and on public holiday, some more!

Just got back from my brother in law's kenduri yesterday, and decided we need a short break.

The kids has not been anywhere during their school holiday, except for Melaka - because of my school reunion and kenduri.

I have been entertaining the kids for a while now, feel like single handedly won the mommy of 5 battle! HAHA!

Kisah sedekah

Motor di pejabat suami sudah hilang dicuri beberapa minggu lepas.

Tengahari semalam, encik suami telah bersedekah hanya RM20 untuk seorang makcik yang tidak punya duit untuk memohon sumbangan anaknya yang sakit tenat.

Dalam jam 3 petang, encik suami mendapat panggilan motor beliau dijumpai dan pesalah laku telah dikesan.

Alhamdulillah.

Nokia 6


To replace my kaput phone. Mujur dah balik modal Redmi Note 3.

And when people asked, I can proudly say I own a Nokia. That's how rare the phone is nowadays.

Thanks Encik Firdaus for choosing a budget phone for me. Cukuplah nak buat call dengan messaging.

At least the camera is OK compared to Redmi.

6S girls silver jubilee reunion @ Jibby East @ 25.11

Just one month + of planning, because we were so excited when we saw what Faryna did for her school reunion - just girls reunion.

Hence, decided on the theme - pastel blue, pink and cream
Set up the team - Faryna, Hasniza, Mimi, Ayin and myself

Attendance - 12 people, but oh my, we went all out for the reunion.

Mimi was in charge of the decoration. And they decided to include bunga kantan.

Nyza was coming late, hence no picture of her during the early stage.

Love everyone putting the effort to be on point with the colour theme.

Missing Faryna (she arrived from Ipoh) and cannot join our gathering

With Eda, it seems that majority of us are wearing pink shawls.

25 years after school

Gift exchange - requested for a bouquet. Thanks Elle!

Everyone looking happy

Love you Mimi! Thanks for the awesome decoration

Told ya Mimi go for the extra mile

And we had Instax picture as well, yeay!

Well, we did went all out with our reunion aight?

And lastly, Pandan Gula Melaka cake decorated again by Mimi! An all rounder event planner

Dino Fun Run @ 26.11.2017





Fun run with the whole family.

Benarnya berat sebab nak pikul Faiq sambil jalan/lari dekat 4 km.

Organiser quite disorganised, hence the delay in the run, and in fact it was a mess during the medal collection.

Ok, lain kali tak boleh bawa Faiq masa run. Penat pikul.

Tahniah anak-anak

Menemani anak saudaraku, Afif Syafi untuk keputusan UPSR beliau. Macam biasalah anak saudaraku ni, no display of emotion. Tahniah juga la ye! Tu pun makcik dia kena paksa ambil gambar

Petang sambung sini pula, alhamdulillah anak-anak di Sekolah KAFA Al-Iman dapat anugerah. Sekolah agama ni sangat santai, tengah nak ambil anugerah, guru pula kena cari anak murid yang nak menerima anugerah. Anak-anak nak datang makan je sebenarnya, boleh?

Fateh pun nak datang sekolah agama sebab nak main dengan kawan-kawan. Ekspresi muka sama je dengan sepupunya si Afif.. hahahah

Spot Faiq!

Final year in Taska Sri Ayu, sad news for a long serving nursery/kindergarten for my kids.

The principal was our nursery teacher when we were small.

Next year will be under new management, Tadika PASTI.

Kita ni jangan berlebih daripada tok guru yang arif perihal agama

Alahai, bukannya saya bijak pun.

Umpama menentang hukum Allah, macam Aini cakap jangan la pula ada saham. Saham akhirat ni

Yg pergi vote tu, dah ambil port sokong. So saham akhiratmu di mana?

Engkau hendak mengiyakan sesuatu yang bertentangan ajaran agama?

Cerdik pandai tapi bab agama maaf cakap la, saya pun kurang bab agama. Tapi kita ada akal Allah nak bagi.

Jangan ingat kau buat tu betul, kalau kau validate dia, will it be a joke? Kawan siap cakap it will be a big laugh to all.

Kau nak menangis atau nak ketawa kat akhirat?

Nanti depa bagi alasan, we cannot judge. Hukuman dia antara Allah.

Selemah-lemah iman kita ni di tahap mana.

Aku dah tegur, sudah. Jangan kata aku tak tegur.

Harry Potter & The Philosopher's Stone in Concert

We purchased the tickets months ago. Because the concert should be in July, hence it was postponed.
Four months later, we were here at KLCC Plenary Hall last Saturday.
 
Found quite a number of people wearing robes, holding wands and hats.

The music was performed by National Symphony Orchestra. The show lasted more than 3 hours, since the film was shown on the big screen. And the orchestra played all the music inside the film.

The music was seamless, astounding and they really deserve the ovation from the audience.

Everyone is a Harry Potter fan, including the head conductor. Even the emcee is one, and we know from the way she talked about Harry Potter - it seems that everyone in the hall knows about Harry Potter (in depth).

Alas, we didn't win the tickets to Japan (for a trip to Unversal Studio).
We enjoyed ourselves very much. The performance was magical. It was worth the wait.

Pandai je tambah-tambah cuti umum sendiri.

Dear self

Please do remember to be yourself. You used to laugh freely, and read book non stop. You used to be homely and be content with it.

Do not be too harsh on yourself. It hurts to think that you are not at par with someone else. Do remember your struggle for many years, and how you overcome it.

Do remember that you have good life and beautiful memories, and surrounded by many wonderful people.

Even though you are a mom, please do not feel let down by your own lackness as a mom. It's ok not to clean your house on daily basis. It's ok that sometimes you feel that you cannot balance work and family. It's ok to eat out, even though people might judge you. Your family is your blessing.

You are not a supermom. You cannot juggle everything at once. Even for work, you cannot prove to yourself that you need to finish the task faster.

Dear self, please be kind to yourself. Please be yourself. Please be yourself.

Pick up a book to read - you used to be an avid reader. Do meet up with your friends often. Spend times with yourself. Please laze around. Share secrets with your sisters. Buy flowers, just because.

For the past months, or few weeks, I have been contemplating whether I need a change in my work environment. I am feeling that I am being complacent nowadays, and can complete tasks in hand with minimal amount of time. I was able to predict my boss's expectation and outline, hence, there were quite a few offers coming in.

The first offer came last 2 months, which I seriously considers.

And then, there has been some shift of tasks - not current, but future tasks. I was selected to be in this new team, and this week has been considered training with consultants hired by my company. I get to select who I will be working with (my teammates) and this is the most crucial part for my decision to take up the challenge.

The team need senior managers and expert in their field to oversee project managers and solution consultants.

Hence, the selection of the team was through HR and suggested by the top management. I am honoured to be chosen.

And this path is what I needed right now for my career diversity and progression.

Terima kasih kawan

Terima kasih

Sebutir beras tidak dibazirkan
Sekasar pasir di tepian pantai
Selembut seurat benang sutera

Terima kasih

Seluas padang hijau disulam padi
Serelung langit tinggi berombak
Sejauh lautan bahtera belayar

Terima kasih kawan

Untuk baja budi yang kau sangka kecil
Dari hatimu yang besar

Let us make du'a for them.

Was affected by the fire that razed the tahfiz school yesterday. Husband came back home and he said he cannot see the image of the students, it reminds him of his sister's case. The resemblence was quite eerie.

And then Aini shared this;

Kita serahkan urusan yg kita tak tahu kpd yg Maha Mengetahui. Yg kita tahu (undang-undang, peraturan keselamatan dsb.), kita perlu ikut. Namun begitu, ignorantia juris non excusat.

Ajal maut sudah ditentukan. Tanda-tanda akhir zaman juga ada dinyatakan. Setiap perkara perlu kita perhati dan fikir berpandukan ilmu dan mereka yg ahli dlm ilmu masing-masing.

Kak Za, UMP
Let us make du'a for them.

I wonder how our life will end?

Antara salah satu sebab saya suka program #neckslimfit ni, sebab diasingkan group antara lelaki dan perempuan. Jadi aurat anda lebih terjaga, dan kami menghormati privasi peserta.

Ada peserta yang berpurdah, dan tidak mahu menunjukkan mukanya. Ya, kami faham dan menghormati permintaannya.

Ada peserta yang suami tidak bagi sekiranya kumpulan #neckslimfit ini bercampur antara lelaki dan perempuan, disebabkan masalah aurat dan keterbukaan untuk bertanya tanpa segan silu.

Yang bestnya, jurulatih kami orang perempuan. Krew pun sama jantina. Kan senang gitu

Jujurnya, saya boleh kata, saya boleh bilang dengan jari berapa kali saya bersenam di luar rumah, antara sebab kerana susah juga nak jaga aurat sebab kadang-kadang bila berjogging, mungkin ada masa tudung terangkat.

Semua senaman yang jurulatih bagi saya lakukan di rumah. Sudah lebih setahun bersenam di rumah tanpa alasan perlu ke luar rumah.

Senang, kan? Yang penting privasi saya terjaga.

Aida
