You know who would be the hardest person to throw a surprise party for? Me.

I am the clingiest person ever so it was very hard for my assistant Iman to plan my party in the office. I told her many times not to throw anything big and I hate surprises etc etc, so I thought she had it clear that I didn’t want any celebration. But she secretly planned it with Dean and the girls in the office, and I had no idea how! Because she’s with me ALL THE TIME, and I use her phone to message people or take photos, so that was the biggest challenge. So in the end, I found out how they managed to pull it off. They created a secret group chat for my party and named it “Health & Wellness” .

Remember when I blogged about the KL dUCk and how excited I was about it? Obviously I thought the world of it, but little did I know it was going to be one of dUCk’s signature scarves. We became known for it and so many inspired versions are out in the market now, but we couldn’t be prouder because we started it first and people knew that. The patriotism that is being spread now is just amazing, and that’s pretty cool.

Since the debut, we’ve not only come up with another city skyline (Singapore), but we’ve also released other colours of the KL dUCk. But never pink. Pink is our bestselling colour, but I just felt like I needed to hold on to it… reserve pink for something special, whatever it could be, I had no idea yet at the time.

Long weekends are amazing. I didn’t say that 3 years ago when it was just Dean and I, but now it’s simply amazing the extra time I get with the kids and how I cherish that so much.

We took them out as usual and this time they got tricycles! Well, actually we just wanted to buy for Mariam, but Daniel just won’t stop whining and pushing Mariam off. So….

At this moment, I thank God we don’t have 6 kids. Haha.

How did my life get so blessed? Sigh.

But really, guys, I’ve learned that life is what you make of it. If you’re a grateful person, the biggest or the smallest things in life will make you feel content. Don’t wait for others to love you, instead love them first without expecting anything back. Don’t compare yourself to others, instead work with what you have and build happiness in that. Don’t be jealous of others, instead be happy for that fellow sister/brother. Be at peace within you, love your family, think good of others, and life will suddenly be so beautiful.

Woohoo 2nd blogpost in 2 days! I’m staying true to my resolution to blog more! 

So you guys know I’m obsessed with clothes and handbags and shoes… I’m just like any girl, really… plus a few more tops and pants and shoes… I always tell Dean “You knew what you were marrying,” whenever he complains hehe.

Anyway, just recently I’ve developed a new love for make-up! As you read from my previous post, I want to groom myself better. I always believe a woman needs to take care of her appearance, and not look selekeh. There’s just no excuse! It’s just whether you’re rajin or not.

how we celebrated the new year

Hellowwwww 2017!

How was everyone’s new year celebration yesterday? This was ours:

Hehe. Dean and I were going to go down to see the fireworks, there’s a little corner in the courtyard that can see the fireworks clearly. Last year, we stayed up with Daniel and he watched them for the first time. This year, both kids couldn’t be bothered. Haha. So Dean and I waited till a little before midnight, then we heard a bunch of noise from there. “Oh no, there are so many people there, all look like young kids,” I looked from the balcony.
