PLAY-DOH GIVEAWAY | Come and join the fun! |

Oct 11, 2016



Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

I am so happy that you are reading my blog today as I will be sharing an awesome product and also hosting a giveaway towards the end of this post. Before we get into that, allow me to introduce Sofea’s new favorite learning tools. There will be two products which are the Play-Doh Shape and Learn Textures and Tools, and also the Play-Doh Rainbow Starter Pack.  My daughter was beyond ecstatic when I brought it home for unboxing.

See? Told ya.. which is why I used the word wonder ecstatic. Wonder where she learned such an expressive reaction LOL!

I don’t think Play-Doh needs further introduction as it is a renowned brand when it comes to children’s development assistance. You may already know that I am quite picky when it comes to Sofea’s surrounding and that include anything she touches. The main reason why I trusted Play-Doh is because Play-Doh compound is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-allergenic. Basically it is a mixture of three main ingredients - water, salt and flour. It does NOT contain peanuts, peanut oil, or any milk by-product.

Anyway, do you know that Play-Doh is celebrating their 60th anniversary not only in Malaysia, but every part of the world? Congrats to that!! I still remember when I was a child, receiving a Play-Doh from my parents was one of the best gifts I have ever gotten. Haha like seriously, are you feeling me?

Hence, the anxiety. The thing about me, I dont like uncertainty, I like it when everything is well planned it would be great if I have the ittinerary to everything. But life is all about uncertainty hahhaha so how? padan muka right?

As per my recent plan is to go for Kimporo Postnatal Centre. Then my husband advised me to opt for malay traditional approach for postnatal care instead. I followed his advice, after all he wanted the best for me. Anyway, we are still contemplating on which centre to go as the one that provide malay traditional care are very limited. I have done some research about it, maybe I’ll share what I found then consolidate it for you for future reference. Also did a research about mid-wife or care lady during confinement I’ll do the comparison table soon.

Pregnancy Massage Date with Hubby

Oct 3, 2016


WhatsApp Image 2016-10-03 at 21.20.51


Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Today illy nak share pasal pergi dating dengan my hubby aritu hehe.. gedik tul gi dating pun nak cerita kan? Nak document my pregnancy moment sebenarnya pastu nak appreciate my husband. Pastu nak share dengan korang pasal kat mana best buat prenatal massage. Masa sofea dulu illy y=ada buat prenatal massage kat villa manja and juga kat urban retreat. Kali ni pregnant anak no 2, husband tertibe baik hati nak belanja gi urban retreat. Illy pun apa lagi??? Dengar jer massage terus YABE DA BEDUUUUUUUUUUUU!!

Perkahwinan ni banyak naik turun, kami pun banyak belajar dan banyak buat salah masa mula kahwin dulu. Process nak sesuai kan diri lah kate kan. Then, we figure out penting nya dating walaupun dah kahwin banyak tahun. Walaupun orang kata gedik ke or mengada ke tapi sebenarnya bagi kami penting dating walaupun dah kahwin. Sebab itu lah masa kita nak spend time dengan pasangan. Ingat balik kenangan dulu, to make our relationship stronger. Insya Allah.

Sebab relationship ni dia macam jaga kebun, kena siram hari- hari kena jaga bagi perhatian baru tumbuh mekar and stronger. Kalau masa mula jer excited pastu lama nanti mati la semua pokok tu kan? Cerita macam puluh tahun kahwin. Bukan nak tunjuk pandai, just nak share apa yang berhasil buat kami mana tau bagi inspirasi dan boleh motivate married couple yang lain. Siapa lagi yang nak jaga masjid kita kalau bukan kita sendiri, betul tak?

Burger Bakar Abang Burn Review

Oct 1, 2016

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Sajer lah nak share pengalaman kami gi makan kedai burger bakar abang burn kat shah alam. Rasa macam pernah viral pasal burger bakar dorang ni tapi kami ni jenis yang kalau tengah hit sangat tu kami tunggu slow down skit baru gi try. Bukan apa tak larat nak bersesak.

Recently kami pergi la merasa. Kedai yag kami pergi located kat shah alam seksyen 7. Punya lah banyak berubah shah alam compare dengan 12 years ago. Dulu illy ambik diploma microbiology kat uitm shah alam. Masa tu lengang takda jakel lah, ict lah apa semua. Sekarang ni kawasan tu dah sangat membangun.

Tapi ni nak citer tak susah cari parking walaupun kawasan dia happening. Kami pun sampai dah tengah malam juga dalam 10 lebih. So, orang dah kurang skit dah lega.
Tak sure plak kedai ni tutup pukul berapa tapi tengok masa kami nak gerak tu still ramai lagi datang makan. Jadi maybe dorang tutup lewat lah kot.

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

How are you? I am so glad you are reading my blog today. Just like to share my pregnancy and life update. The last time I talked about my second pregnancy was during this post. Where I shared about our rough plan for this second pregnancy and so fourth. The amazing thing about life is could be so unpredictable that might involve changes of plan haha..

Giving Birth Hospital Selection

As mentioned in earlier blogpost, I was planning to keep my option open on where to give birth. To be completely honest, I managed to convince my husband to bring me for check up at goverment clinic to open up the red book. My intention was to help my husband not to spend a fortune for my giving birth process as I understand and see with my own eyes how hard he worked. I dont want him to pour all the money away just for the sake of my comfort. After all, I do heard of many good experiences at govement  hospital. Let’s just cut it short by saying, i tried to convince him. The thing is, as we proceed to the goverment clinic there is quite number of procedures that we are not very comfortable with. So, easier to say my husband decided for me to proceed my check up and giving birth plan with our previous doc from Tropicana Hospital instead.

The main reason, we are already very used to the doctor and the hospital enviroment plus it is near to our home compared to the rest of hospital. Not that I am complaining, I am grateful to have a loving husband who put my comfort as priorities even it means that he have to work hard to pay for it. I will always appreciate it.
