Belated New Year Dinner as Lilie was away during our New Year Lunch on 1/1 🙂 This was Pondok Seri Wangi, Gadong.
Everyone’s going supersize in my family, me included! I recently upgraded to a Note II from SIII and the size difference still amazes me. While showing the phone during dinner, it sparked off a conversation and my mother turned out to want to upgrade too and my brother wants a phone with a bigger capacityRead more
3 days to go and we are in the 3rd trimester! Time flies. Everyday I love feeling you kick around and tell your Babah to feel it too. I think its your way of saying Hello to us 🙂 I can’t wait to meet you!
This is our daily lives, constantly connected to the internet. I’d love to be disconnected sometimes, and learn things by looking it up in a book, not instantly google it. I’m guilty of that too much. Look up a movie synopsis, an answer to any question I might have, or how I might relieve Irfan’sRead more
Every 8 January, I wish my Maktab Sains schoolmates Happy Anniversary. I don’t remember what triggered it. Perhaps I came across our Yearbook and read an article about our first day of Orientation on that date. I certainly didn’t remember it in the beggining. Only in the last 5 years, maybe? Because I know IRead more
When I took this photo, I had an entirely different blogpost written out in my mind, but later that evening, I re-wrote it. Everyday life and chores becomes different coloured flags in your perception. Red flag! Or Green flag (or green light) .. however there are times you want to wave that white flag ofRead more
Today after lunch and insisting to the husband that we go have the car washed, I browsed a bit of Facebook and as usual, stories from ViralNova caught my eye and this was one of them. A girl at 18 left her hometown and volunteered to help in Uganda and 3 years later, adoptedRead more
Our adventures together.
I printed out photos from Instagram – what a trip down memory lane! – to make a mini photobook. These were 9 images on 1 A4 sheet paper.. they become really tiny once cut. Will share the end result soon!
Sometimes I don’t know where to put my thoughts into, there’s too many tabs. I have an idea that may be relevant to more than 1 topic, where do I put them? I end up putting it in my purple “scribble anything” journal.. Perhaps we all do this too often in our lives too. Compartmentalize,Read more
Irfan’s teething again and he’s grumpy and cranky and becomes so attached, he won’t let me out of his sight. Get well soon, achy baby!
Dear son, You’re growing up so fast. Please don’t. I want to cherish every moment slowly. You look so grown up here, my heartstrings just pulled tight. Soon you’ll be a teenager lounging watching TV just like this. I wish for time to slow..
Outside Anekarasa, Kiulap For 1/1 this time we had lunch with my family, as last year we had a pool bouncer at husband’s 🙂 When choosing the photo of the day, I went “awkward body pose” and “meh, should’ve taken more photos”. And then I figured, this is the reality of us, and I remindRead more
Be more organized – Allocate the time to plan things, do them and not be distracted. This applies to work, home, blog, photography editing, projects.. Learn something new – A new language or course or skill .. like crochet or knitting. Live simply – Time to declutter and have less stuff. Spend more time withRead more
What favourite old thing? My wallet and the bokeh of course! 🙂
Photos of infant Irfan in newborn size cloth diaper and m size all in one cloth diaper. And the bottom ones are one of incoming one size pocket diaper we will be trying soon Irfan is a heavy night wetter that both of us have to check him every 3 hours to ensure that hisRead more
Dear Son, There is nothing sweeter than the feeling of tiny legs wrapping around your thigh or an arm around your elbow. I long to sleep next to your warmth for always. You love to tuck your hands inside the space between us. We have been cosleeping on and off since your birth. Sometimes you’reRead more
Playing with the Oly + cmount lens again. Its a little soft because I’m impatient and focusing manually takes a while and a still subject and/or a steady hand/arm, since you are rocking back and forth to get the subject sharper and not rotating the lens ring. Earlier this month I was contemplating on gettingRead more

The area has a lot of interesting shops that caters for kids as well as adults, including: supermarket FreshCo located in the basement coffee outlets Le Kaffa, Gloria Jeans Cafe restaurants All Seasons, Warong Penyet various food &beverages AuntieRead more
Dear Son, You are eating and sleeping a lot nowadays. Not to mention being very very naughty! We are trying our best to tire you out so you’ll sleep through the night and not wake up in the wee morning too. Your favourite thing to do is grab my hand and pull me to whateverRead more
Wishing all who celebrate a Merry Merry XMas .., a photo by lisadragon on Flickr.
My father’s spelling 😉
This was an entry I posted in a wordpress.com blog made sometime in April 2012. So last night as I was driving us for grocery and errands, I asked you about a songname and started humming it. It was an old song, and a rock song at that so of course you knew it immediately.Read more
Irfan’s favourite toys now are dinosaurs. It was horses a few short months ago!
