being a mrs love

lucky number 8


If you haven’t puked enough from my cheesy insta feed, let me tell you that Dean and I had our 8-year anniversary yesterday. Not the wedding one (some people actually thought that…) but you know… the scandalous lovebudding-flowersbooming-sunshining-birdssinging kind of anniversary. Our very first date together was 8 years ago – remember the movie he brought me to that I had to pay for my own ticket? Yeah, that romantic anniversary.

I’ll keep the presents secret between the two of us, but for lunch I took him to Tanzini. Food wasn’t great but it was just nice to be together. We had meetings and a presentation during the day, but we made sure we kept the important meals free so we could be together. For dinner, he surprised me with Nobu which just opened btw and I couldn’t be happier! We used to go all the time in London, sharing dessert romantically and finally now we can relive those days without actually having to go on a 13-hour flight. We laughed the night away and almost forgot to pick Daniel up from my mom’s. Hehe.

I also got him this little mini cake. Paid a visit to Gateauxlicious’s kitchen to steal some of Asma’s rejected pile (cos that’s smarter than actually buying one, Dean is so lucky…) and found this. I carefully wrote the number 8 and a little heart next to it just for my man of 8 years.

“Awwww, thank you baby! Did you make this?” Dean’s reaction when I gave it to him.

Did I make this… why do people even bother asking.

Ignoring the question, I went, “Look at the icing! I wrote that myself,” I beamed proudly.

“Yeah I see that. 8 for 8 years! And….”

“A heart. That’s a heart.”

beautiful morning

So one beautiful morning in London, I woke up earlier thinking I could get some alone time downstairs in the garden area. Had my laptop with me, ready to do some surfing, blogging and possibly some reading. Birds were chirping, sun was shining but just kind of kissing lightly not harshly, and the weather was so perfect I could just wear a sweater out and not freeze to death.

Not a few minutes later, I heard a familiar tone of footsteps behind me. And there they were, my beautiful son and my handsome husband, out to play in the garden too. Daniel came to me and hugged my legs on the bench where I was perched. My “me” plan was cut short but I didn’t mind it one bit. Dear Allah swt, thank You for all the blessings You have given me, especially this small little son of mine…. and I guess the handsome husband doesn’t hurt either. Hehe.

How does your calendar look like this next 2 months? For me, every weekend, there’s a wedding!! Love is definitely in the air and I’m feeling the love… you know, in between minor heartburns and pregnancy nausea. Hehe.

Three of my good friends are getting married soon and I can’t be happier for them. Today, I spent some time at one of their houses helping her and her mom make the wedding door gifts. Fold the tulle, cut the tulle into a perfect moon shape, wrap it around the beautiful crystal bowl with a majestic-looking chocolate egg in it, and finally tie a perfectly neat ribbon around it. It was extremely therapeutic and if all doesn’t go well with FV or dUCk, I think I’d make an awesome tulle-cutter. Bahahaha. But I’m serious, I actually think I have a talent in cutting things, guys.  It was perfectly straight!

So anyway, with all these weddings happening around me, I couldn’t think of a better top to wear to best show my support.

If you’re a stressed bridezilla, then my advice is… it’s not too late to cancel! Hahaha ok joking joking. You’ve made deposits for most of the things anyway, so too late there. Ok JOKING AGAIN. Seriously, Barakallah to you and may God shower your future marriage with nothing but love and happiness and more of His blessings.

weekend at the golf club

Sponsored Post

KLGCC is a special place. It’s where my family has our usual weekend breakfast, it’s where our favourite restaurants are, and it’s a place I used to go as a child to watch my dad practise his golf. And the most special of all, it’s the place where my dad gave me away to the love of my life, on my wedding day.


One thing about this place is that it’s just so breathtakingly beautiful. The greenery, the poolside, the food, just that you have to make sure no golf balls come flying your way!

So I was thrilled to find out that one of the coolest family fun events is about to happen THIS WEEKEND there; the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia 2014 event.

Ok fine, so it didn’t catch my attention because of the golfing part. Hehe. I mean, I’m sure it’s pretty amazing to line up 75 top female golf players in the world in one place, and even cooler to watch them win one of the biggest prize money in Asia…. if you’re a golfer, that is.

But meeee… I’m into hawker food!! And that’s exactly what they will have there… AND LOTS MORE.

So this isn’t just a golf tournament. This is a whole weekend of family fun and all for a good cause towards Cancer Research Initiatives Foundation (CARIF) as proceeds will go to this organisation.

being a mom


So my girlfriends came over today to gush over Daniel. Daniel was not amused with the 6 pairs of girly eyes staring at him. He’s still the same clingy child, hugging my leg and burying his face into my neck in crowded places. But once he warms up and just observes a little longer, he starts to say things and if you’re lucky he’ll even comb your hair. -___-“ Oh my manly son.

My friends were teaching Daniel eyes, nose, mouth, etc. And tickling his tummy and he loved it. Whenever I enunciate with him and try to get him to repeat after me, he usually has his moods. Some days he will oblige and say “Door” and “Fish” and “Mickey” and whatever I tell him to repeat. But there are days when he just looks at me and tilts his head sideways with a big smile… then he twirls. And I wonder why people think he’s a girl.

Anyway, they were telling about this baby that famous blogger XiaXue has who is soooo smart and can finish your sentences and everything. Blood rushed to my head. What do you mean he can finish your sentences, what genius baby is this?! Apparently she’s a super hands-on mom who reads to the baby and talks to the baby until he can pick up stuff really quickly. He even says Hippopotamus. Daniel can’t even say Dog.

“But guys look, Daniel can eat by himself,” I pointed out as my son smears cupcake icing all over his mouth. “See, so smart too!”

They nodded politely.

“But you know, all babies are different. So whatever, I’ll let Daniel grow in his own time….”

 As soon as they left, I turned to Daniel and held him by the shoulders.

“Ok Daniel, let’s do this,” I say seriously. “HIP-PO-PO-TA-MUS. Go on, say it. It’s not that hard. Come on…. HIP-PO-PO-TA-MUS.”

What does he do?

He tilts his head and twirls.

Ok fine, so first day fail. Sokay guys, gimme a week or so. I’ll get Daniel to even spell the word. *rolls sleeves, cracks knuckles*


Boooo, but I just want to chase the pigeons in the park!
