Oh My Goodness

Kalahkan orang perempuan.

A sunday ,cheerful chirpy birds outside

Even on a Sunday I bangun awal.hmmm..Just cant sleep in.Need to clean up a lil bit before getting ready to go and see MoM and Dad.Both lil one and hubby is still snoring away.
I had a very fulfilling dream last night.I did some charity work.Hmm I've been wanting to do good with orhphans sampai termimpi mimpi.I think I should do more.By giving more,teaching lil one to understand how the orphans live.To teach lil one that not everyone in this world is lucky to have both sets of parents alive.The hardwork to succeed in life without having both parents around.The sacrifices this lil orphans face.
I think that should be a good thing for our lil ones to learn.
Hmm and I also dreamt of a long time friend who I havent seen for a long long time.Wonder how things are going along with her.

I ordered these to bring to the open house

She just showered and now getting ready.She smell so good.

Why is it that once a month we ladies have to feel like this?I dont like this feeling but I feel good writing about it.To let it out at least I'm not containing it inside.Yep,anyone who doesnt go thru monthly PMSdont understand it.
I feel like nothing is right.I blame it on hormones.
Ok take a deep breath,think positive..
Do positive things..For example dejunking?
I managed to clear out Lil one's bookshelf.I've thrown away all the workbook for the year.
I put all the exam papers in a big file makcuweena gave.So when it come for Year 6 exam,She can go thru all the files year by year.

Reality check

. If you can't find what you need within minutes, it's time for a reality check.

2. Get everyone in your family on the decluttering/organizing bandwagon.

3. If the countertop or table surface isn't visible, take action ASAP.

4. Establish a specific place for the things you use every day — hooks for keys, a basket for catalogs, etc.

5. Always give the living room a quick pickup before bedtime.

6. Be relentless in tossing out papers — newspapers, magazines, junk mail.

7. Make lists of household staples, with their expiration dates, so you'll know what you really need.

8. Every time you bring something new into the house, try to make sure something old goes out.

9. On a regular basis, deal with your garbage gremlins, such as grocery bags, takeout containers, chipped drinking glasses, soap shards, dead batteries, rubber bands, and dried-up pens.

10. If you aren't using it, get rid of it!
Go back to Stain Buster
Go back to 30-Minute Clutter Solution

I'm going to switch on the lights coz its dark already.I am going to sleep early tonight but dont know how early.
Lil one will have to sleep early too.Well she sleeps early everyday except for when we have things to do and places to go during weekends.
I think I'll do the rest of the laundry tomorrow.

cleaning the store room

I cleaned up upstairs and came down made pasta for lil one when she comes back,Then I thought what should I do now,so I opened the store room. 2 luggage inside there,opened them up.Put in the clean laundry inside there..So that bag is ready to go..for wherever we're going anytime.
Now I'm taking a break.Listening to jazz.
Thinking of making bubur ikan today.
The mood is gloomy outside.
Hope it rains.

no i dont want to

I have so much to do but I am totally not in the mood to do any cleaning ,housework or whatever that has to do with the house.Can ah like that?
I got a text from T that her sister is the happiest woman on earth today because she's expecting a boy due in Jan or Feb after having 3 girls.Good for her:)
I am upstairs,looking and peeking in the family room.It need to be straightened up but that can wait...My feet and hands doesnt wanna go there yet.
Ha ha I know I'm lazy today.
Can i just jump into bed and do nothing?hihi

Normal routine

I was like a zombie for a couple of days.Napping tak kira masa...Today I woke up feeling better.But wished I can sleep in.hihi...Went downstairs make susu for my lil one and nescafe for me.Hubby wouldnt want his coffee cold by the time he wakes up so no coffee for him yet.
I told myself I need to be positive today.I choose to be.
No pms or anything will change that.Well,hopefully

Other Chores: A Simple System
Besides cleaning your house, you probably have other chores you need to do on a weekly basis. It’s good to get a weekly routine going as your simple system, so you never forget to do them and you know when you have to do what.

Here’s a sample weekly routine:

* Monday: Yardwork
* Tuesday: Clean car
* Wednesday: Pay bills, update financial software
* Thursday: Errands, groceries
* Friday: Laundry
* Saturday: Clean house, put away laundry
* Sunday: Family Day

Benefits of a Minimalist Home
I could probably go on for awhile about this, but let me just list a few key benefits:

1. Less stressful. Clutter is a form of visual distraction, and everything in our vision pulls at our attention at least a little. The less clutter, the less visual stress we have. A minimalist home is calming.
2. More appealing. Think about photos of homes that are cluttered, and photos of minimalist homes. The ones with almost nothing in them except some beautiful furniture, some nice artwork, and a very few pretty decorations, are the ones that appeal to most of us. You can make your home more appealing by making it more minimalist.
3. Easier to clean. It’s hard to clean a whole bunch of objects, or to sweep or vacuum around a bunch of furniture. The more stuff you have, the more you have to keep clean, and the more complicated it is to clean around the stuff. Think about how easy it is to clean an empty room compared to one with 50 objects in it. That’s an extr…
# Declutter for 15 minutes every day. It’s amazing how much you can get through if you just do it in small increments like this.
# Don’t allow things into the house in the first place. Whether you’ve begun decluttering the living space, or you’ve just completed it, stop bringing in new stuff NOW. Even if that’s ALL you do and don’t start decluttering immediately, if you can only establish one habit at a time, establish the no-more-stuff habit first. This way, when you do get to decluttering the existing stuff, you’ve already stopped making it worse. Think of bailing out a boat with a hole in it. You can bail and bail, but it won’t do anything for the leak.
# Donate stuff you’re decluttering, so you don’t feel bad about wasting it.
# Create a Joe’s Goals chart with decluttering on it — either daily, or 3 times a week. Check off the days when you declutter, and you’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment.
# Start at the corner by the door and move your way around the room, doing the superfi…

Reminder for me....

Giving unwanted things to others will not only mean you're doing your bit for charity or get you in others' good books, it will rid you of junk you wouldn't otherwise part with. Charity shops are always looking for clothes, gifts and unwanted items. And if you give to friends and family you can always ask for it back!

So do you really need 2 copies of the same book, that old tea-set and all those socks that don't match? Go through everything with a fine tooth-comb and be ruthless! Remember that all that stuff you don't use is only taking up valuable space.

Clean out your cupboards
Don't hoard old clothes. If you only have a teeny wardrobe, change your summer and winter clothes over twice a year. Anything that's old, bobbly, or beyond repair goes in the bin! And there's no point in keeping things that are too small or cheap tops that might have been fashionable once but were only ever going to last you six months.

Recycle
It's not only good for the …

We rushed

Lil one had her spaghetti with tomato and cheese(Instant) for breakfast with her milk of course.I had my nescafe and Maggi sedap..Yep cant help it,hungry!!!
Rushed and sent her off.Paid for her character shoes..$$65 .Yep everything costs money!!!Next year have to change her dance attire..hmmm..
I'm in the kitchen right now, not wanting to do any cleaning or anything for that matter.
Headache is building up.Had my pain killer coz Its gonna be a long long day.We have a reception to attend this evening.I dont want to be feeling and looking like a zombie.
We came back at 3 am last night.Hubby and his siblings had fun talking about them growing up.Ya since now we have a new addition to the family ,he listens and asked so many questions.
Hubby is buying rojak and cendol .Yay.

Down memory lane

Hubby came home and picked us up at about 9 pm .We were supposed to go dinner then my sister in law told us that she masak already so we went there to eat dinner.After a while,the other sister in law came.So we sat at the dining table and chatted for hours.Hubbby started bukak cerita about zaman him growing up.How naughty he was.He was onced spike with a chilli by his late mom because he started cursing.That time he was 4.Hmmm..
And when he was about 8 or 9 years old,he nearly burnt his late mom's house and till today even after 5 years she died,she didnt find out why or how the fire broke out.
Lil one was busy playing with her cousins .Not even once she came to look for me to ask this and that.
When we were about to leave at 3am,she didnt want to go home..She simply adore those times.

Hubby is snoring away and I'm falling asleep as I type this.

Whats for dinner tonight?

I dont know because I just messaged hubby saying that I didnt cook anything today.I am too lazy to cook today.He said ..."hmmm" hihi

Coretan ku hari ni and Marls must be wondering why I'm writing in Malay...ha ha

I went out to develop some pictures to make my collage.
Spent about more that I budgeted for.
Then I went to La cucur to buy a few kuih and ended up paying for so much more.Never go to a food stall when you're hungry.I should know that by now.
It looks like its going to rain outside.
I need to start doing housework at about 4.30 pm and then wash some laundry.
This morning at the nikah session,Everything went fine.
We were late as usual though.And I made hubby apologized for his actions before I yang kena bambu...
OkDOkee...Hopefully this Sunday jadi jumpa my sisters and kazens.Lama tak hang out

Slept early

Last night and then at 1.47 am I woke up feeling hungry.
Went downstairs to look for food and terperangkap tengok Rachel Ray n Martha Stewart.
Got back upstairs and trying to fall back asleep

A pretty Dress

The lady delivered it to my house today.Its so sweet.

I wokeup.I slept very early lastnight coz tak cukup tido the night before.I am lazing a bit before getting up buat susu and kopi for us.
I have a very long list of things to do today.

Nak malam dah

Weather: Bad but nice
Time: 18.02
Location: Kitchen

Last night hubby and I chit chat about people.Life.Our beliefs.I felt better after that coz at daytime yesterday I felt so angry and sad .
We exchange ideas about what we think,what we feel, how we solve issues,How good things and bad things happens..How we resolve them.
We also talked about how as a person we dont judge others.
We learn a lot from each other.I like having talks with him.

Today I'm posting a lot

I'm frying fish and later on making sambal telur,Teringat pulak bin masak sambal telur first day buka hari tu she said:)
Nasi dah masak.
I'm going to buy vege afterwards to goreng.
I'm so tired....Not enough sleep .Last night I watched that "Nelson Mendela" True story till late.
It was a good movie.Loved it.

Good Good

Ehem ehem:)

When I woke up from my nap

Image
When you look around you you see people are still in the raya mood,I saw a group of working woman,dressing up in their baju kurungs,all pretty and nice.

If you cant take it dont read it.

I believe whatever goes around comes around.Today I witnessed something that shouldnt come out from someone's mouth.I didnt like what I heard because I believe in the saying.Whatever goes around comes around Kita hidup in this world,tak baik berfikiran buruk on others.No matter what,we dont judge people .And even if we still insist on judging,people change.Life is a very long cycle.Ada hari senang,ada hari susah.Ada hari masa muda,perangai pun naik minyak..and bila dah tua sedar diri.

This morning I dengar ada orang kata zaman sekarang kalau wanita berkerja,ada yang tak ada masa nak jaga suami
.I dont agree 100 percent.Whatever choices you make in life,either married or not its your choice and live with it.Marriage is about making things work ,Giving and taking...Theres no one way about it.I am a proud stay at home mom.I do my part,semana I mampu and I also ask help from hubby with work around the house.That is how our marriage works.This is the way it is.Eventhough he penat kerja,I…

Monday Blues...

I bangun terkejut again.Luckily it was just 7 am.Rushed downstairs made coffee and susu and kejut them up.But still lambat today...chis.Told lil one "You think its your daddy's school is it?" Can go lambat all the time?
hmM ACTUALLY its always Daddy yang lambat.
Nevermind, try to do better tomorrow.
Final Exam Final Exam

Went to bank in all duit raya .Puas hati .So that wont terpakai.
Right now I'm surfing for a while and at about 10 need to run errands.
Update
2.28pm
I went out to print some raya pictures.Best ,I'm so into gambars.After that went to the cd shop,browsed thru a bit and bought a few cd's
Now its raining outside and I'm jumping into the shower.Rasa so malas with the weather like this.But we have to be at mummy's afterwards,so better be fresh la kan.

Going to sil house

For Raya...

Yesterday 4/10

Yesterday 4th Raya we wanted to go beraya to Hubby's aunts place.But his aunt took his uncle to the hospital.Some complications.
We ended up at the twin towers,we shopped.Ha ha!!
After finishing all that hubby asked me to call mummy and I asked mummy who's around and she said no babies,just orang besar.So i said we'll be coming la coz if the babies were in the house susah coz I'm not well and its contagius.So we went there only Aunts and Uncles were there.We ate laksa and many more things......
Lil one had a good time eating ice cream after ice cream.
Lama jugak lepak sana.

4th day raya

I am still sick

Second Day of Raya

I am sitting down at the ngopi area of mak's house.Weather is good.We're munching on biskut Raya,having coffee and ciggies...
Lil one went beraya with Atok and Wan.Went to collect duit raya as well.
We're going out for Laksa in a while.

Hari Raya

Its a lovely day in the kampung with the feeling of Hari Raya.I love coming back here for Hari Raya,coz the feeling is there...Last year we celebrated in Kl and the atmosphere was differeng.
This morning woke up had to get hubby up for Raya Prayers.Well as usual he doesnt wanna get up kan.Made him coffee and pujuk him up.After quite sometime baru he nak bangun.
Ayah and Mak,Brother in law and nephews and hubby went for Raya prayers and I got the lil one ready with her new green baju kebaya.She was so excited to wear them.
After that my 2 sisters and I lepaked and sembang in the kitchen.How this year our 2 cousins with their babies celebrating their first raya and how we're not celebrating together this year.
We mula mula memang ingat nak balik one night aje but then ayah is not so well,his neck is still in pain.Kesian pulak kat dia kalau raya ni cucu cucu dia tak ada lama dengan dia kan?
I know how different it feels for my 2 cousins to feel coz we have been celebrating our Raya's …
