Came back from my Syamail class and I found this note on my bed.
Kids and their note!! 🙂
Today is one of the days that I love about my life as a homemaker, so much. Early in the morning, all standard house chores were completely done and meals for the day were ready. Very efficient!
I am still in my birthday mood. These are presents I received from two of my close cousins and two of my best mommies friends.
At this age, I’m a little bit apprehensive or shy when people give me presents on my birthday. Their prayers and wishes for me are sufficient. But of course if they insist, I accept them with open heart and gracefully.
The reason I completed all my daily routines early today, was because, I had a date with one of my MQG sisters. Once in a while, I repeat, once in a while, we treated ourselves with “expensive” breakfast. We, as a full-time homemakers, having these kind of breakfast is a bonus.
At first, our intention of meeting was just to have breakfast and chill at Causeway Point for some window shopping. Somehow, somewhere during our conversations, the thought of going elsewhere was brought up by truly yours. So from Causeway Point, we dashed to Bugis Junction and Takashimaya.
As I mentioned earlier that I am still in my birthday mood, every year on my birthday, I make a point to buy a birthday gift from me to me. I just feel that I deserve to reward myself, hence the gift. So this year, I dragged my friend all the way to Takashimaya to get this…
If this little thing can make me happy, why not?
After the expedition, sitting down to have lunch and drink were definitely necessary.
That is why I LOVE being a homemaker. Alhamdulillah!
Tonight’s event was truly amazing and eye-opening. Allah really gives hidayah to those that HE choose.
Qasidah group Al-Mawlid from Malaysia are formerly a group of singing artistes. Somehow Allah bless them with hidayah and now they expressed their love for Allah and Rasulullah S.A.W through their voices by forming a qasidah group. MasyaAllah!!
They were there at Masjid Ahmad Ibrahim to share their experiences in finding the true path. Al Habib Hussain Bin Najib Al-Hadad was also there to grace the event. And of course, the qasidahs and beatings of the darbuuka, hadrah & bass gong by Anak-Anak Cinta Rasul and Ashabul Mustofa were awesome!
Right after the majlis, Hubby and I sneaked in for a short while to have our very late dinner at JB. 😀
I was still having migraine this morning. But not as bad as yesterday. Since Hubby already applied for leave to bring us out, we brought the kids for a swim at Sengkang Swimming Complex.
The weather in the morning was extremely hot. I kept on reminding my kids to swim under the shade. But being them, they insisted to glide down the slides lots of times. Under Hubby’s supervision, I let them be.
I was quite upset actually as we did not have the chance to bring the kids for a short holiday, not even for a trip to JB. The kids’ schedules for this school holiday were really hectic. This week is the last week of school holiday, and they still need to come back to school.
On a lighter note, Hubby and I are in the midst of clearing our storeroom. We threw lots and lots of unwanted things, some even we had no idea where they came from. As I’m typing this, Hubby is painting the storeroom. Hopefully by tomorrow we can have a more organize storeroom with no “rubbish” items in it.
I did it again.
Not updating for such a long time.
I’ve been so busy the past weeks and did not know what to blog about to begin with.
Today, something motivated me to update somehow. My second daughter reads my blog. I saw her reading just now. She has been reading all my past posts all these while and enjoying it. She loves the way I write. Nothing outstanding to me, but it means the world to her, especially when I wrote about her and our family members.
So there you go. If this do not push me enough, I don’t know what will.
I’ll try to be independent as much as possible when Hubby is not in town, in terms of going to places. I foresee that Hubby will be travelling very often, and I do not want to be stuck at home, going nowhere, just because he’s not here to drive me around. I need to be fair to my children. It’s not that I’m against the idea of staying home, but IF they stay home, their companion will be either the TV, PC, Ipad and handphones. So they need to go out.
Like today, all of us went out, even though not together. My KSS sisters and brothers came for a visit, to bring Afrina and Affandy to a Selawat Session at Ustaz Shafi’s house at JB. Afiqah and I had to stay behind as Afiqah could not afford to be absent from her tuition.
At the same time, my KSS sisters actually wanted to take a look at my new kitchen. Haha! They even took picture with R E D…. 🙂
They were all dressed up in black for the Selawat session. If it’s not because of Afiqah’s tuition, I would dress like them and join them.
But nevertheless, I had fun with Afiqah today. After her tuition, we watched the movie “Mirror Mirror”.
She said she loves it when only the two of us go out. No interruptions. I get what you mean, girl. I feel you, too. But I still miss my two other muchkins. 🙂 Err….three actually, including Hubby.
I have been waiting for this to become reality for such a long time. After for more than a month of waiting, it’s finally ready.
My dream kitchen, and it’s R E D.
I would be lying if I said that I am not thrilled. This means so much for a homemaker like me. This is where I gleefully or sometimes reluctantly prepare the meals for the family. This is the most important part of the house, at least to me. After lot of thoughts and endless discussions, I finally succeeded in persuading Hubby about having a new kitchen.
For more than a month we bought meals from outside, it felt so good to start slogging myself in the kitchen again. The first meal that I prepared and special request from my children, Tom Yam Fried Rice! They ate like they never had a decent meal before. Each of them had second servings. This fried rice may be easy or nothing to others, but it’s my children’s favourite dish of all, so seeing them finished up gave me a satisfaction.
Oh, I baked too. It’s White Chocolate Chip Cupcakes. With my little Assistant-Chef assisting me in baking, it made my job easier.
I did it again. Neglecting my blog. I didn’t mean to, actually. I have so much to share and write. But I just could not make myself to log in. My bad.
I keep on reminding myself that I have to be consistent in updating. If not, might as well I close this blog.
But I can’t do that. This is the place where I can voice out my thoughts. So….hopefully this blog will not be neglected again.
It’s raining right now as I’m typing this. Love this kind of weather. Don’t care about the damp laundry. Right now I just want to enjoy this beautiful weather.
As I was reading the timeline in twitter, I came across this picture. MasyaAllah! Imagine circulating (tawaf) the Ka’bah in the rain. I want to feel it…
