Why I Choose Modern Cloth Diaper as my Thesis Subject

Been a while since I last wrote about anything other than my darling, precious babies. LOL! I'm also nearing the end of my MBA studies, and fervently hoping that I could graduate by next semester! Initially the plan is to gra…

Letter to My Girls: Khayla (35 months) & Khadeeja (11 months)

Dear precious daughters, This month you both turned a month older - Khayla, 35 months and Khadeeja, 11 months old. I know this sounds cliche but wow, time sure flies fast, right? My angels, This year our lives took a …

Khayla's fun fact #3

This one is not so fun but what the heck. Khayla hates showers. She will do anything to skip this routine. She runs away, cries, dodges, hides and puts up a fight when she's forced to. But once she's in the tub, she's…

Khayla fact #2

Khayla likes to exclaim, 'So how leh?' Occasionally she breaks into incomprehensible Chinese language like, 'zai zhi le !' True facts :p

Khayla fun fact #1

Whenever she gets excited about a new toy / a bottle of milk / an invitation for a car ride / a trip to the playground, she will flap her hands, jump up and down and shout, 'webek2!' That sounds much like a frog croaking …

Dear babies, I am starting this letter with a prayer that you both will always be in Allah's protection as He has protected me at all times. You see my children, today I had a close call of walking into a crime scene, and pro…

Girls, I'm really missing you both right now. Counting the days till I meet you again. I love nothing more than cuddling and snuggling up to you both this weekend. I need you girls this moment to tell me everything is going t…

To my two most favourite little girls in the whole wide world, Almost a year has passed, it's almost unbelievable how much you both have grown since then! This month has been a bittersweet moments for all of us. In my high ho…

Dear Khayla & Khadeeja, Words can't describe how glad I am to chat with you just now. I am so relieved Khadeeja, that you managed to fall asleep so easily and without a fuss. One minute we were saying hi to each other and…

My sweet angels, It's been a busy day as I try to sort out my thesis writing so that it makes more sense. The truth is darlings, I am working at slow speed and I feel really frustrated about it.  My problems aside, how are yo…

Dear Khayla & Khadeeja, Tonight we are back in KL without you girls. I'm so proud and yet sad at the same time that you girls didn't cry when we left. Although adik stretched your hands towards me but when I kissed yo…

Dear Khayla & Khadeeja, 9 more hours to go sweethearts, then we will be reunited Insya Allah. We went shopping and bought a few things to bring back to Bintulu. We did laundry, ironed our clothes, packed our bags and most i…

Dearest Khayla & Khadeeja, Every night the same thing happens - I lie thinking of you two. I play videos of you, thanks to Makyeng and Ngah Bob. I kiss your still images, so in love am I with the two girls who rock my world a…

Dear girls, Once upon a time someone told me that a mother will never forget her children until the Day of Judgement comes. I used to think how is that possible? Surely for a moment she will cease to remember, like when she's…

Dear Khayla & Khadeeja, I hope everything goes well in your life now. It seems that you are enjoying yourself very much with daily trips to the playground and eating out. Counting the days till we meet again sweethearts! Toda…

Dear  Khayla & Khadeeja, How are you darlings? I sure hope you are doing good, happy and thriving in the good hands of Makyeng. Do you miss me? I do, lots and lots. I can't wait for Saturday to come it feels soooo slow! S…

Dearest children, Today marks the 7th day of our separation. Like I said yesterday, it's still very painful for me to take each day in its stride. I am looking forward to meet you girls this weekend, so badly sayang!  My babi…

Letter to My Girls: Khayla (33 Months) & Khadeeja (9 months)

Dear Sweethearts, This year I strove to write a letter to both of you for each month you turned older. I'm sorry that I missed last month's update. It may be trivial to most people but to me, it means that I have lost t…

Kehadapan anak2 mak sayang, Hari ke-6... Rindu mak terhadap Khayla & Khadeeja semakin kuat, cinta. Malam ni mak masih tak boleh tidur, mak masih terbayang2 wajah kalian. Senyum tawa kalian memberi semangat kepada emak. Bila k…

Dear girls, I miss you both. When I go somewhere and I saw girls your age, I start to think about you. Have you eaten? Are you ok? Are you happy? Life feels incomplete without you. I thought I could pretend that my life has been …

Letter Day 4

My dear children, I pray to Allah that you both are in His protection as you and I have always been. It's been a rather laidback day compared to the past few days sweethearts. I've passed my Chapter 1 yesterday, done my C…

Letter Day 3

Dear Khayla & Khadeeja, What are you both up to today? Makyeng sent a few photos which makes me feel happy, but also missing you terribly and even more. Love is weird that way, darlings. I miss you both dearly, but I know…

Assalamualaikum kakak and adik, I trust that you are happy and settling down fine in Bintulu, my sunshine and moonlight. We have passed day 1 but it has been very hard for me. I hope it was not so difficult for you both, but …

Makan-makan Again!

Oops. I thought the makan-makan at Kak Retna's place was the last entry about Raya, but apparently it was not! Out of the blue, hubby decided to host this year's open house at the very last minute, itu pun after Syawal e…
