Just one of those quiet nights. Fadza is out watching football with his friends at mamak shop (it’s World Cup season now, wife needs to be understanding #rolleyes) and the kids are fast asleep so I’m just at home enjoying my me time with my laptop.

Selamat Hari Raya and Maaf Zahir Batin, guys!! Hope your Raya has been amazing and you’ve been enjoying the long break. I know I have! First day was the usual – both sides’ houses and conk by evening so tired from all the visits and well, lemang.

It’s nice to see both kids getting more and more interested about the new baby. Daniel keeps asking me when Baby No 3 is going to come out and I keep telling him it’s still going to be a while. He knows the months of the year already so I told him most probably October so he’s marked it on his calendar. Too cute!

Mariam? She looks at her watch (yes she has a watch from Smiggles that has a green monster on it obviously meant for Daniel *rolls eyes*).

“Mommy?”

“Yes, baby girl?”


just like a backpack

I just got back from the gynae and we found out the sex of the baby today!! I want to blog so I remember the day we found out if you had the bird or the bees, baby no 3 🙂

I’ve just passed the 4 month mark and everything is healthy and on track, Alhamdulillah. Been having a lot of work lately with the most stressful time of the year for us – Raya period, travel every week and my energy is drained out, so I was anxious for this checkup. Phewww baby is A-ok and that’s the most important thing. We saw the baby moving around in the scan and I wish we brought Daniel and Mariam along so they could see too. Now Fadza and I are thinking how best to tell them the sex of the baby haha.


no thank you

I still don’t know the sex of Baby No. 3 yet.

My nausea is pretty bad, I’m losing weight that even my collarbones are jutting out, my complexion is so bad now, and my tummy is quite big – so aunties who see me immediately go “Oh, you’re definitely having a girl.” Haha, we shall see! Another Daddy’s girl…. great!

To be honest, since I have a pair already I really don’t have a preference – whatever God wants to gift us! But I do think this new baby will determine the dynamics of my little family moving forward. If we have 2 boys in the family, it’ll be trips to the dinosaur land and scooter parks moving forward, sigh. If we have 2 girls in the family, Mariam will have competition and I worry that she might not like the new baby – although, it could make her more girly and less “I want to wear baju melayu for raya like Daniel and my cousins”…. Either way, it will have an impact on Daniel and Mariam, and I’m nervous to find out to be honest!


i’m pregnant!

Guysssss, remember me? My name is Vivy…. Haha. I’ve been so out of it with blogging but for good reason. Most of you might now via Instagram but it doesn’t feel like I’ve announced it properly until it’s on Proudduck.

I’M PREGNANT!!!!!!

Wow feels so surreal to tick “Being Pregnant” category for this blog post.

Baby No 3 wants to say Hi!

Alhamdulillah 🙂

Unlike the other two (what were their names again), this one is planned and we’ve been trying for a few months until we realised we counted the days wrongly bahahhahaha. #canruncompanybutcannotcountovulationdate
