I haven’t stopped drinking coffee since being pregnant. In my first pregnancy, I didn’t really feel like coffee but this time around, I just kind of needed it. I limit my intake though. But today it just a coffee kind of day. The day passed by in a blur, full of work stuff and beforeRead more
His delight with bubbles! (This post is entirely done on the iPad mini, including photo import via a Camera Connection Kit, edit photo and writing the content. Awesome possum!)
Late last year I was contemplating a new camera, a compact point-and-shoot with good enough aperture and zoom to be an all-rounder – family functions, travel, artsy bokeh pics and zooming on faraway objects. I saw the Panasonic Lumix LX7 with f1.4. And then the Samsung EX2F, also f1.4. And then, fellow BFFs (that’s shortRead more
Teal is my new favourite colour and I shall declare this year to be the year of Teal goodness >__< The first item to be covered in Teal is this new toy of mine, an iPad Mini. A while back I wanted a tablet of my own. I did a comparison whether iPad is theRead more
I like to pretend its a vampire bite, but it was just a mundane reason. I had my blood drawn for a routine blood test at 28 weeks pregnant – though usually it doesn’t leave a mark afterwards. Only later, when I took off the bandage, I saw this, tiny tiny vampire bite marks. AndRead more
Cruise Vessels maiden voyages are one of our highlights at Ports Department, it means we get to go onboard and visit, pretend for half an hour that we were cruise passsengers from faraway lands. Maiden Voyages are when it’s the vessel’s very first time docking at our port. Boy, was this one very new andRead more
Dear Son, I want to let you play to your hearts content but sometimes the relatives (or maid) stops you from enjoying. Sigh. The balance of life. To balance what I want for you and giving in to relatives. I don’t know what to do. I know one thing, I can’t wait to have ourRead more
1. Reunion a. The act of reuniting. b. The state of being reunited. 2. A gathering of the members of a group who have been separated: a high school reunion. It is also a name of a place! An island in the Indian Ocean, in the Mascarene Islands: an overseas region of France, having been in French possession sinceRead more
Ok, I cheated. This is 4 photos. I couldn’t pick one today so I did 4 😉 This morning was spent lazing about and lots of playing. He was too funny 😉 Around 11+, We left to go to the first wedding function this year. It was hot but it was bearable. Irfan fell asleepRead more
Qadir loves to collect coins. He has dedicated tins for each coin size. We sometimes count (well, he counts and I take photos hehe) and this time there’s a little boy joining in. Oh, there wasn’t much counting after Irfan came in. Tee hee.
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! 🙂
