Wishing dat the Almighty grants us da chance and strength to sail smoothly throughout dis much awaited month.

I pray dat Allah will accepts our fasting, prayers and qyiam. May we be among those who are saved on da day of judgement. May da prophet (pbuh) be proud of having us part of his ummah. I pray dat we are among those who preach and follow.

May we have a wonderful Ramadhan, and are able to make the most of it. Ameen.

The Romper Story

There’s always a two sides for every story.

Mommy’s Story

There’s a reason why I put Eryna in this i-don’t-sleep-nobody-sleep-romper today.

Eryna’s having a trouble & restless night yesterday & drag me along with it. Put her to sleep at around 9pm and she woke up around 12midnight for nursing. Then at 1am, she woke up crying; “uwaaaaa” for about 2minutes or so (eyes closed), left me wondering why.. Then again at 245am..slap me right on my face is what she did! Then offer her for nursing but seems like still contently-full but just wanted to ‘talk’ just for a few minutes…Me with sleepy eyes, half-awake-half-sleeping, just layan ajer la…then again at 430am...this time for nursing but wont go to sleep after dat,keep me awake with her for around 5mins..then suddenly cries, again left me wondering why…clad her in blanket in case she’s cold or something..but still cries..hug her a bit..pat her cute bum for a minute or so, then finally went to sleep until 730am…Finally! I woke up around 640am....’alamak haven’t performed subuh prayer!’…then continue back to sleep until 730am..Bath Eryna at 9am..searching the romper I bought 2months ago & dressed her with it as a reminder that I’m still sleepy from the previous night!

Eryna’s Story

There’s a reason why mommy put me in this romper today.

I think it’s because purple suits me really well. Look how cute I look in this romper! :) I sleep around 9pm yest nite & feeling hungry at 12midnight. Luckily mommy is always ready to provide me with my favourite milk..Yummy! I dream about abah taking picture of me at 1am..oh how I hate the camera! Uwaaa..Even in my dream i don’t like it…For about 2mins, finally abah take the camera out from my face..Only then I can continue to sleep..Suddenly remember I haven’t told mommy about my day at nursery today..Mommy wake-up! Slap! Erkkk..”Sorry, didn’t mean to slap on ur face. I was actually aiming for your shoulder but my aiming’s a bit off…anyway..u know…story…story…story…thank u mommy for listening..lets go to sleep now..i can see u are already half-asleep”…I’m hungry again at 430am…mommy I want my milk now…woke up at 730...what a great night!

Oppss my bad..There’s three sides in this story..

Abah’s Story

There’s a reason why Eryna’s wearing her purple-romper today. It’s because mommy spent almost RM30 buying it online 2months ago & end-up it’s way to big for her & have to wait until today only can wear it.Hmm..heard Eryna cries last night..Sokay mommy will nurse her…continue sleep…zzzz...Hmmm..izit Eryna ‘talking’ last night? zzzzzzz…woke up at 6am…hmmmm….what a great night!

p/s- Sorry for the blurry always, from my crappy phone..*wink*

Sugar oh Sugar

With all these chaotic-news-rumors dat sugar is depleting; a few friends asked me:

Friend1 : Yani, dh ada stok gula blm?
Friend2 : Eh, dkt Minat, Poh Lye, seme gula dh abis..better beli cepat2..
Friend3 : Sy ada extra 5kg gula, Yani nk tk?

I sincerely thanks all my friends for their concerns..

Answer1 : Ye dh ada, satu kilo enough la..
Answer2 : Xpe dh ada sekilo kt umah, cukup la..
Answer3 : Xpe, yani ngan hubby kt umah makin nasik, xmakan gula..(No, I'm not being sarcastic, ok..I'm juz joking with dis dear friend of mine)

Da truth is, sugar does not really play an important role in my almost-non-existent-daily-cooking-mission..But if somebody comes to me screaming "cili padi is depleting" or "cabai kering is depleting" or "santan is depleting"; then it's a lot of different story..If dat is da case, I would probably be da first one running to da nearest store to stock up a pile..

But if it is sugar, here are a few points to further strengthen my argument:

  1. 3in1-instant-quick-no hastle-milo-nescafe-horlick-tea-policy. (somebody might say "such a waste of money la buying 3in1"..Yeah right. As if 1teabag per cup or 1 pot of tea for only 2persons is such a saver..duh..)
  2. Sweet drinks? Always a no-sugar-needed cordial.
  3. Eryna's meal? no salt, NO SUGAR, no MSG, no added flavor for 2yrs.
  4. Cakes? Unfortunately I dont bake cakes. Well, at least not NOW. I cant really say for future though. I might enhance my cooking skills, who noes?
  5. Cookies for Hari Raya? As if I have da time (read: I'm juz plain lazy, dats it..*wink*). Plus I'm fulfilling my social responsibility by helping hidden-talent-entrepreneurs out there by spending my money on their very delicious home-bake cookies.
Well, all been said, my occasional use of sugar is juz 2-3 table spoons for whatever it is I'm cooking for dinner/lunch for da day to "bangkitkan rasa manis lauk" is what my grandma always told me..which is not really much rite? So when question asked is "does sugar depleting really have an impact on me?"

Sadly NO (well, not really)... :)

Fabric Hunting

*shooh*shooh*…can u see dusts everywhere here in my blog?

Been a bit bz lately with i-dunno-wut-stuff....Well, juz an update on my baju-raya-hunting-expedition..been searching online (since the H1N1 influenza thing, I'm a bit reserved to bring Eryna to where it's crowded with people) for a cotton fabric, as suggested by my dear friend Jeri, to make a baju kurung or smocking dress for dearie lil Eryna..I know it's not even Ramadhan yet, but believe it or not, it's hard to find even 1 tailor who's willing to take 'tempahan' for baju kurung...have to act fast people!

Anyway, found & bought a nice (in my opinion) Japanese cotton fabric for dear Eryna which is pretty darn expensive! I dunno dat cotton fabric can cost dat much! But I just fell in love with it at first sight, so decided to let the shopowner robbed me blindly *sigh*..

Then went fabric-sightseeing again & found these designer fabrics which is so damn gorgeous!!! It will surely cost me bones & limbs, but how can I resist?!? Cant help myself from ordering Amy Butler Lotus , Heather Bailey Freshcut, Anna Maria Chocolate Lollipop & Tanya Whelan Ava Rose collection for both Eryna & my dear self..(I just noe my dear hubby will kill me knowing dat I spent on fabric again!) Well, dunno whether it will still be in stock or not…just thinking bout the design make me excited..yay!!

Juz have a look at all these designer sure will make u drool..
