Raya - Day 1

Mari membuat entry raya..agak belated..but well..let’s just do it anyway. I think I'll post day by day punya entry takde la cramp 1 post dengan gambar bagai

How was your raya? Raya this year memang sangat different compared to previous years..

2007 – Raya as a WIFE
2008 – Raya as a WIFE and 6 months PREGGIE
2009 – Raya as a WIFE and a MOMMY to a 9 month old
2010 - ??????

So each raya memang different and has its own agenda. Now ada baby, dia la priority. Preparation, travel, sleeping arrangement, packing semua pon kena think about Mika. Baju raya all out for him (ADIDAS shoes dia tak muat dah okay! takpe, simpan for next one :P), this year also dapat participate in collecting duit raya..for Mika of course!

Malam raya and 1st raya at Bkt Mahkota, PIL’s house. Dah 3 tahun raya first day at hubby’s..tengok la next year tukar plan pulak ke (nak ajak Tok Mak Bahau raya kat Subang next year).

Before siap, sempat la amik angin pagi kat luar rumah and tolong prepare apa yang patut and also siap kan Mika while hubby off for solat Aidilfitri. This year I missed to perform the solat. Everyone ada except for my other SIL yang datang in the afternoon. So we ate first and postponed our sessi bermaaf-maafan and photo session to afternoon.

bersiap or more like bersilat for me

Petang, kami pulang ke rumah..home sweet home :) I kena pack balik baju² sebab macam banyak jer for 3 days trip, barang² Mika pon kena pack balik..siap buat checklist okay..yer la 1st time budak kecik ni nak travel, mesti kena prepare bagai kan..bath tub, kettle dia pon I bawak sebab nak pergi rumah orang belum tentu ada kelengkapan semua so bawak la selagi muat.

Mikhail at 9 months

Mika turend 9 months on the 1st Raya itself. As usual, will briefly update on what he can do so far..9 months already?? 3 more months to 1 yr old my baby boy ni..

Let see his “achievements” at 9 months:
  • Dah boleh diri with support, pegang something like meja, sofa and jalan ke kanan dan ke kiri and also boleh bengkokkan lutut macam cangkung..according to BabyCenter, it's not easy to master this skill :P
  • Boleh jugak tatih² dengan dia but kejap² lar
  • Boleh cakap few syllabus like “nanak, tatata, mmmmmaaa”
  • If dia nak nampak something, dia akan point to that thing and macam bunyi² sikit
  • Suka menari to the songs in PHDC..especially Dibo the Gift Dragon, Higglytown Heroes, Little Einsteins..those yang ada lagu and with bright pictures..dia suka lar
  • Sangat suka attention..bila orang ramai angkat, layan dia..dia suka lar but bile takde orang layan, merengek je..kena ajar to behave ni
  • Dah pandai mintak² makanan orang..pergi dekat sambil telan air liur and tengok je orang makan tu
  • Suka kacau kucing! Owh kitten lar..kucing besar dia macam pegang² macam tuh jer
  • Dah tau fan kat mana, kucing mana, pastu buat “Hello” sambil pegang barang letak kat tepi telinga konon cam telephone lar..then tahu bagi barang kat orang bila cakap “Give to Mommy/Daddy/etc”
  • Owh jatuh tak payah la cakap berapa kali dah..ada one time tuh jatuh tersembam sebab tangan salah budget masa merangkak..darah gusi depan dia..sikit jer lar..then pagi before jatuh tuh jatuh katil lagi! Dia golek² dan jatuh nasib ada bolster bawah dia..hai..ni belum panjat² lagi..ada tak jual protective gear for baby? Rasa nak beli helmet dengan segala protector lar for Mika
  • Dah banyak gigi! Gigi atas ada 4..gigi bawah maybe naik lagi 2..and ada tanda2 gatal gusi untuk gigi² lain pula
  • Owh Mika pandai kiss..tapi bila dia kiss dia macam gigit..tapi gigit tak sakit lar..
  • Suka sangat baling barang² ke bawah..if dlm cot ke dalam kereta ke..suka baling ke bawah..if amik balik dia akan buat lagi dan lagi
  • Suka main pintu..if dapat, suka tutup kuat²..takut nye terkepit jari..must buy safety kits ni
  • When Mika is around, neither Mommy nor his Daddy can sit still..penat mengejar budak kecik ni
  • Aksi berani dia, suka berdiri dan lepaskan tangan..cam balancing..tapi nanti akan jatuh terduduk lar sebab tak kuat lagi kan..so kena standby belakang dia especially kat hard surface
  • Conclusion, banyak la benda dia boleh buat dah sekarang, Alhamdulillah. Hope everything goes well with him..membesar dengan sihat dan kuat and jadi someone besar nanti, InsyaAllah
Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir Batin..
and happy 9 months old to me!

Happy 9 months old Ahmad Mikhail Haris..
mommy & daddy love you..as always :)

it has been 4 years

hari ni genap 4 tahun arwah my Tok Bah, Tengku Syed Nordin left us. Tok Bah, since you left us, hari Raya macam tak berapa nak meriah and the first few years kehilangan Tok Bah, kita orang sampai terfikir..tak raya pon takpe..sama jer tiap² tahun.

Selalu nya the day before raya, arwah Tok Bah rajin sangat cari kayu api and perahkan santan untuk masak redang dan dia akan kejutkan semua orang tolong masak. Masa arwah Tok Bah ada pon semua masak sekali then baru bagi² unlike now masak asing² and tak guna kayu api dah..pakai gas saja. Pastu time masak² tuh, my cousins and I selalu akan take turn jaga api then arwah Tok Bah suka je nak kacau kita orang masak (he was such a great entertainer). Then my sister and I kalau balik kampung mesti nak tido rumah my aunt together with our cousins. Arwah Tok Bah sanggup jalan (ada la selang 10 buah rumah camtuh) tolong hantarkan sahur for us anak dara yang bermalam kat situ. Arwah Tok Bah paling suka bila orang ramai kat rumah dia..time tuh la dia akan sibuk² join, cuit kita orang and join kita orang makan kat dapur borak² walaupon dia dah makan. Dia sangat suka layan cucu² dia yang sungguh badut dan kecoh² ni memang kita orang sangat dimanjakan..sakit jer pegi kat Tok Bah, nak lepak² jer pegi kat Tok Bah..then arwah Tok Bah sangat jaga anak cucu dia sampai mesti spraykan bilik each time nak tido masa balik kampung. ..we miss u Tok Bah! *al-Fatihah*

Iftar @Eisha's

Went to Eisha’s house for yearly buka puasa event with the gurls last Saturday. Her place is not too far from mine which is located at USJ 17. All of us live nearby actually, dah move out from our parents’ place pon still prefer to stay in Subang area. Reached around 6.45PM and Ereen was already there together with Eisha’s housemate, Zach and of course Eisha herself. Some of the dishes we brought were Ikan Keli Masak Sambal, Gulai Telur Masak Lemak, Ayam Golek, Tauhu Sumbat, Paru sambal, Sayur Kacang Panjang, Telur Asin and Kentang sambal..owh semua pon beli, satu je Eisha masak :P:P Faz brought Shepherd Pie and pie sangat sedaaaapppp!! yang ni K's mom buat..Faz, kita nak lagiii!

Ape daddy cakap ngan Mika tuh..duduk senyap jer
while waiting for the rest to arrive..
bagi budak kecik ni makan dulu 



Then around 7 Faz arrived and Erin arrived just in time for buka and this year we had 2 new additions to the group. Actually 3 but Ereen did not bring her son along, tunggu besar sikit yer..Irene being the eldest, she’s going to be 2 yrs old this November acted like kakak to dear Mika. but biasa la kids, ada time tuh tak ok jugak..so rebut², gaduh², normal la kan. Bella, Erin’s second daughter still small, soon to be 3 months old same age with Thaqif. Owh both were born in June

mommies and babies.. 
time ni ereen kena balik coz thaqif was crying non stop so she decided to check on him first..anak, mesti la panic kan 
"daddddyyyy.." 


Being us, memang la havoc rumah Eisha tuh, dengan layan anak masing² lagi..Mika suka la dapat attention from all the hot aunts..suka je dia kena angkat sume. He behaved well too..tak meragam pon..siap jerit excited lagi..thanks Mika! Kami beralih tempat ke Eisha's room and continue to kecoh² there and the babies came with us too..the partners, they lepak at the hall makan apa yang patut :)

 comel kan this pic?
Irene selamba je share pillow with Mika and even tolong pegangkan botol Mika and as you can see, Mika don't mind at all 
amik pic lagi

Hubby pon sporting je we all lepak², amik pics and jaga Mika while his wifey sibuk kecoh². Thanks hubby! actually thanks to our partners, daddy Joe and daddy Lan who took over the kids well..so basically I enjoyed the night and I am sure the gurls did too. best dapat jumpa everyone, but now sebab dah tak single, have to leave early..so very limited time nak borak². if tak dulu sure sampai midnite tak habis²..so life is changing, we are entering different phase of life..but one thing remains for sure..we are going to be friends forever! Ni quote dari Eisha’s from FB album.. “Good to have you girls ere!! with the new editions to the group..expecting more next year so eija and ereen, starts processing..erin, awak take a break dulu..and fahz, gotta start planning..hehe..love you all!! Muax!” well Eisha, we’ll see what next year has to offer ;)
Mika dah ngantuk eh?
US!


the daddies yang sporting!

Salam Ramadhan 2009 from us!

weird dream

I woke up today with this weird feeling. Why? It was because of last night's dream. The dream took place at the wedding hall where I held my reception last time and also at a condo like area. There were familiar faces around including that particular one. In the first part of the dream, I was sort of watching a video of my wedding (must got to do with this). My hubby and I were walking down the aisle and there was this familiar face was standing behind us and acted like a bodyguard (supposed to be best man, I think). The weird thing is or should I say funny, hmhm..when the camera was not focused on him, he acted like he was mad with the whole wedding thingy and about to run amok and so wanted to kill the bride & groom. Then once the camera was on him, he turned into this sweet gentleman and even smiled..weird!! okay, whatever.

The second incident took place at a condo. According to the people there, the residents of the condo have been attacked with this virus that turned people into zombie (again, it relates to this! note to self: must not watch too many movie like this) The people who lived on the top floor came into contact with the virus first and it then spread to residents who lived on levels below. I was like witnessing the incident from some other place. I have contact with one of the residents there and he/she told me that one by one has been attacked and next was his/her turn and the line went dead. I called my hubby and asked him to come and accompany me and there were police, army everywhere only that the police and army were not Malaysians, more like US ones (just like the movies..:P) then "my hubby" came and when I said "hubby", he did not resemble my hubby at all! What happen??!! Who the hell is that guy?? Owh now I remember, that guy was the same guy at the wedding..okay, confuse. Pffttt..whatever!

happy birthday abah dearest & toothache

Hello! How was your weekend? Hope you had a great one. I’m writing this on Monday which is a public holiday for Selangor but not for my office! Plus there’s nothing much to do at the office and fasting month + free = BORING!

Last Saturday was my dad’s birthday and we were supposed to have a cake cutting session later that night but Mika was unwell and cranky the whole day. One of his upper teeth was giving him a whole lot of pain and made him very uncomfortable. He had difficulty in eating, swallowing and when he tried to drink his milk; he refused as the teat of the bottle will touch his teeth and that made it even more painful. Alternatively, fed him using spoon or syringe and he did slept after break fast for 1 hour or so but around 9, he woke up and cried and just wanted to be held. He must be hungry & sleepy and feeding him using spoon/syringe did not satisfy him at all and made him more cranky.
As a first time mom and since everything is new to me, I need advises from friends and did some research around but when the methods applied come to no success, guess the best solution would be a visit to the doctor and off we went to the clinic.

Hubby was unavailable that night as he got to work (I am close to ask him to take half day leave or something, as at some point, I felt so helpless and tired of having to take care of Mika alone, true my parents and siblings are around but Mika still wants me no matter what and I really need hubby to be with me). I am lucky enough as my parents live nearby and I know that they are always there to help with this and that and I truly appreciate it but it would be better if hubby is around. So you know why I always in Subang when hubby is on PM shift? (easy for me, easy for them). Back to the story, when we were at the clinic, Mika was calmed and not like when he was at home. He even made the effort to ‘talk’ to the lovely doc and waved goodbye to her upon exit. Doc prescribed numb ointment for his teeth. At home, I rubbed the ointment at his teeth and like magic he was able to drink his milk and slept soundly till 5.30AM. Alhamdulillah.

On Sunday, he was feeling much better and less cranky but he still refused to eat porridge (or was it because it is not delicious at all..LOL). I think he prefers the porridge to be finer and soupy food so he can easily swallow without having to munch. I gave him Heinz Apricot Rice Pudding, some orange juice with no sugar, Farley Rusk mixed with milk and few spoons of Nestle brown rice. Milk was given during the meals and so far so good. We broke fast at my mum’s and had the cake cutting session. Happy Birthday, Abah!!

Hubby took the day off, meaning he won’t have to work at night, yeay! Left for PH around 8.30PM and I guess Mika is back to himself, active and he even jumped up and down in his cot and wanted to play when it was already past his bedtime. I’m happy when Mika is happy. So now he got 4 teeth and yes, this is only the beginning. More teeth to come and I heard that molar teeth are the most painful than the rest? Even adults feel the pain with our wisdom tooth and baby?? InsyaAllah, only HIM knows best.

Quite sad to leave him at the babysitter this morning but Mommy got to work. Since today is a public holiday, only he and a 2-yr-old girl are around. I’m sure he will receive full attention from the babysitter and family :)

cake sedap! regret pulak makan sikit je 
budak kecik ni teruja tengok lilin masa we all nyalakan lilin tuh
*ignore me pls, tengah balance snap pic one hand, carry Mika one hand*
"can I have a bit of the cake mommy? please?"

pantang nampak i tau dia ni 
Happy Birthday Tok Bah! 
"nak turun nak turun, i want mommy.."
