Everyone who follows my Insta posts would know that I’m super busy at work with the Raya madness now. Everyday it’s late nights in the warehouse and the beauty is that the team bonds so much every Ramadan, we pray together, we break fast together, we laugh and sweat and get stressed together. It’s a huge learning curve this year because we were doing so many things at once and we could have done few things better, so definitely this Raya period was an experience we would never forget. Amidst the stress, I managed to sneak in some time to…. BOOK OUR FAMILY HOLIDAY POST-RAYA!!!!
While snapping this photo, I was literally dancing and begging them to at least smile for the camera.
Daniel and Mariam had their first ever school concert the other day and I need to blog about this so they will always remember it. They were both in different classes so they had separate performances so out of the 20 performances there, I stayed the wholeeeee times for TWO short performances. You guys know how excited I am about children… zzzz. -____-” If it weren’t for these two, I wouldn’t have discovered any maternal bone in my body. But anyway, yes, I survived their school concert and clapped for every performance, just to show support to the other kids whose names I don’t know. *bows*
Someone elder said to me the other day; “I don’t understand your generation. Why you people like that ah?”
Defensive, I jumped back and said, “Whatttt!”
“You people are very unhappy and unsatisfied all the time. You want a lot of salary with only a few years experience, you never want to do things outside your scope and you are never excited about anything. Give you benefits and perks also, not happy. Give you increment also not enough even though your work is mediocre. Give you ownership of a project also, and then when things go wrong, you don’t take ownership. What do you people want ah?” – the conversation was longer, but basically this was the gist.
I’m getting more recognised in the public (but really, most are just Daniel and Mariam fans -__-“) but it’s so weird because I’m not a celebrity. I don’t act, I don’t sing, and apart from the reality show, I am not a regular TV personality. I think the people who truly know/recognise me are the ones who have followed my blog from years ago and it’s so nice because you have watched me grow up and read my blog/insta that I wrote from the heart. Even from naughty uni days, you’ve known me and my writings! I like to think that people who know me love me for my real stories and appreciate the fact that I’m not a “celebrity”.
Mornings with my babies are seriously the best. They’re both morning people so they wake up with a smile and Dean and I would tickle them in bed together before all of us get ready for work/school/nap (in Mariam’s usual case… zzzz….). I value my mornings so much so I get really annoyed when people rush me, because I really want to just focus on being a mom in that one hour. Joke with the kids, cuddle them, and most importantly, I always try my best to make sure I’m the one showering them every morning.
