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.

KOMUJI CAFE sooooo yummy!



Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Do you love Japanese pastry? Well, you have come to the right place. Today, I will be sharing with you about Komuji. I am pretty sure many of you have heard about this pastry heaven! If haven’t don’t worry as I’ll be sharing my experience with all of you in this blogpost.

So, last 2 weeks my daughter and I went to Komuji at Sunway Giza outlet to have a tea time session. We had a good time with Yukiko (always a pleasure to meet her haha), then we also meet Sue Lyn (@bangsarbabe), Ivan (@psylancer) , Kristal and John.  Aiyakkk…. Totally forgotten to take a group pic, its okay next time then!


As we arrived, we check out all of the amazing selection at Komuji. They have so many pastry selection and we spoilt with choices. They have cakes, bread, those with filling those with not, they have spicy one, sweet one and even savoury type of bread. Sofea cant seem to keep her eyes for the yummy looking pastry! P/s: Thanks Yuki for carrying my 15kg baby and make it look effortless haha


Our first delight of the day was an array of Hanjuku Cheese cake. I tried to get sofea to pose but the cake is more pretty interesting than mummy, hence the attention goes to it hahaha. As a mother, I only allow my daughter to consume all natural ingridients becasue I want her digestive system to stay healthy for a long as possible. Which is why I could be selective on what I let her eat. With Komuji, non of that worry me at all as Komuji only use all natural and premium ingredients for all of their product.

Beauty ala French? Introducing The Therapy First Serum by THE FACE SHOP

Sep 13, 2016


Image result for french sea water

Bonjour and Assalamualaikum everyone!
I am happy to be back with a latest skincare review and this time around we are going to get deeper into French beauty. Where it is all derived from the nature. If you have been around following my  humble blog, then it is not a secret that I am a believer when it come to power of nature. Anyway, have you heard of  Thalassotherapy? It is my first time encounter with this word. It is actually from a Greek word which is “Thalassa” meaning sea and it is introduce by Dr. De La Bonardhiere way back in 1867. What is actually mean is the beauty therapy using the sea. Specifically the French salt water from the sea. What makes French salt water so crucial when it comes to beauty? According to the research, when dipped into the sea mineral water, the minerals from the sea absorbed into our epidermis (skin layer) and the process is similar to a discharged battery being charged.

The good news is, scientist found out that the sea water from French contain not 2 not 10 but 100 times more minerals that the renowned European mineral water Evian. How interesting is that?

For Thalassotherapy, blue algae and oligofucellaran is also combined as a trio for amazing skin result. This is because blue algae contained great anti-oxidant properties while Oligofurcellaran helps to retain water inside your skin which act as moisturizing agent.

Visiting my nenek comel

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

That is my nenek. We call her tok. Basically she is sofea’s great granma orang melayu cakap moyang. hehe Beruntung sofea dapat jumpa moyang. Illy dulu masa kecik tak sempat. Belah ayah pun tak sempat. Dapat jumpa atuk belah ayah pun sampai umur 5 ke 6 tahun pastu dia meninggal. Belah maklagi lah pula tak sempat langsung jumpa atuk sebab dia arwah masa mak illy umur belasan tahun. Belah husband illy pun dia cerita macam tu juga lebih kurang. Tak sempat nak jumpa atuk nenek belah pak mertua illy, belah mak mertua rasanya sempat tok yang perempuan jer.

illy sebenarnya jarang dapat jumpa nenek illy ni sebab dia duk kat Kuantan. Punya lah sibuk hal dunia hal kerja sampai nak jumpa setahun 2 kali pun payah. Apa punya cucu lah illy ni kan? Nasib lah teknologi dah berkembang boleh call tanya khabar nak kirim duit pun boleh bank in.. jadi masih boleh kekalkan hubungan walaupun jarang jumpa.  illy selalu rasa bersalah bila tak dapat jumpa spend time dengan nenek illy sebab dia baik n comel. Tapi apa kan daya, harap lepas ni bole buat lebih more trip melawat tok kasi dia happy.

Masa kita sibuk kejar kerjaya, kejar kehidupan di bandar.. our parents, our in laws our sedara mara semua makin tua. Jadi kalau boleh bila ada kesempatan nak spend more time with all of them sebab tak nak menyesal. Haritu before gi rumah nenek illy, sempat tidur umah mak illy 2 malam tapi lupa plak nak ambik gambar haha.. next time lah ambik gambar.
