Irfan is so focused while watching tv, it becomes 2 pronged – we sometimes use it to sneak out in the morning while his attention is on the tv. On the other hand, when we call for his attention, he doesn’t respond. Sigh 😛
Lunch with girlfriends this time! 🙂 Thanks for the company ladies and its always great to catch up. Surprisingly Gadong area was quite deserted at lunch, I was pleasantly surprised XD Today was my last day at IPA Course and traffic all around has been good to me. First and second day was bad trafficRead more
Day 2 of my IPA Course, had lunch by my lonesome at Taurean Cafe. It was my first time and I was pleasantly surprised with the availability of the Japanese Udon dish. I would expect it at a japanese restaurant, yes but not at a cafe. Japanese Udon is one of my favourite noodle inRead more
Today’s photo was another one from yesterday (yeah I cheated!) as I was too preoccupied to take a photo – my short leave ended and I start work. Fortunately I had a course at Institut Perkhidmatan Awam (IPA) – the local institute for training the public sector. It was an interesting topic! Tools and TechniquesRead more
Dear son, You are so lucky to have such a caring father and companion. At times when I can’t bring you and show you delights of life, the world, your babah is always there. And I am thankful for that.
Living on a house on stilts by the river – I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I love the sounds of the waves, the cool river night air, the beautiful view of sunrise. It may be hot and almost sauna-like during noon, and your car is a walk on the bridge away – should youRead more
Accompanied the husband for errands today. And then off to Mentiri for the afternoon. Trying not to think that work resumes in a few days. Sigh. I was just beginning to enjoy the break.
Irfan’s mess at any given day. He’s getting into more mischief, but getting smarter too – he’s learnt so many words this week.
It used to be easier, getting packages in the mail, but nowadays its a big pain in the bum. Literally. I had to queue for a bit! The system needs to be improved or the enjoyment of new things isn’t just what it used to be. Loving my new pretty lace back case forRead more
Mentiri Sleepover for Day 2 as we have some errands – waiting for the new mattress, and do some cleaning 😀 I ticked off lots of to do things: like getting a hot water pot just for Mentiri – I have been lugging one along everytime we sleepover and sometimes it feels like moving houseRead more
Our first day of leave spent with this little boy, he’s so delighted we’re both home 😉 He’s learning many words nowadays. So much funtimes! He’s so dramatic too! I was wrong about this lens, it does swirly bokeh beautifully too! hee hee. My favourite of all due to the smooth focusing lens. Fujian 35mmRead more
2 February 2014 – Selamat Pengantin Baru to lovely newlyweds Widari & Kyle Isa 🙂 Enjoy married life! ^_~ Que and I also managed to drop by Court Furniture (again) to get the tilam browsing done for Mentiri. I wanted to see my lovely polkadot sofa again! Hehe 😛 Someone want to sponsor me? HehRead more
Today was a productive day. Unpacking newborn clothes from the storeroom, and finding clothes still with tags on! (Err.. thanks to Aunt Lilie, who buys things online and they come super late hee hee)
Parenting for everyone is different and I am experimenting. Telling your toddler no doesn’t work and I wanted to see if punishment will deter him for hitting me. If it was just me – Its ok, but I am concerned if he’d hit his little brother or sister coming soon if he doesn’t start behavingRead more
I love being driven to and from work 😉
Monday brought with it a bright sunny day. Yay! A beautiful sunny day at last after a week of wet weather. Feeling a little cheery – in a few days, my short leave is going to start!
Loving this doorgift from a lovely couple! Thank you, this is an awesome piece of work! My very own pot and its cup. Not everyday you see new and awesome invention like this – hehe!
My downtime on Saturday – most of it spent in the toilet (sorry TMI!) but managed to rest and in the late afternoon, took out my latest arrival in the mail – a silver 35mm f1.7 cmount lens which came with several silver rings (I’ll take a photo of them next time) – which turnRead more
.. or so I thought. I’ve been drinking milk to boost my calcium, on top of that remember to take my iron tablets but after 2 hours of consuming any tea/coffee drinks. I think I’ve eaten something wrong somewhere but my Friday was anything but normal. But life goes on though. So, as the afternoonRead more
It was one of those epic fail moments. We were doing the garbage run and there was a beautiful black and colourful bird, along with the normal burung pipit birds, and I wanted to capture it (the black bird) for my day’s photo. But then: 1. My cmount lens Elitar Anastigmat 75mm was mounted 2. IRead more
Its been a wet and rainy few days and its been getting to me. The gloom and being cooped up and work — still waiting for me. Sufficient to say, I’m feeling the pressure. Sigh. I can’t wait for my short holiday.
My favourite subject. I could photograph you all the time, but then I’d annoy you. But I won’t care anyway 🙂 My Instagram is littered with photos of you, of us, and now, of our son too. The photo below is taken by you, and yes, I love it too. I like to remember thisRead more
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
