his and hers

New gadgets and this time to both of us :) The first real smart phone that I like. HTC HD 7 best tapi apps very limited dulu la now macam dah improve. Then I tukar to phone ala kadar je janji boleh WhatsApp, online and take photos ala kadar. Love Android and loving it even more now. Hubby trying to adapt to Android.

 waiting for our turn
spent the day at Pyramid
oh notice Mika is on different shirt..sebab we had to go back that evening to settle hubby's account. Somehow when they switched the sim card, they switched the number as well

So beli phone apa? Samsung Galaxy S3 it is this time. Pebble blue for hubby, marble white for me :)

dinner @Run Forest Run

Had early dinner with the family sebab semua orang pon dah balik from holiday/jalan². Dad from Perth, sister from Istanbul and mom from her hometown..huhuh. We went to Bubba Gump @Citta Mall. Lama sangat tak makan kat sini. Can't remember the last time I had this pon. Time pregnant kan Aariq ke or before that. The thing I like about Citta Mall sebab dia open. Something like The Curve minus the crowd. Paking pon banyak dan senang. Quite number of restaurants also. So if nak makan Chillis tapi tak nak beratur, meh la datang sini. Rasa sama je with other outlets.

 aariq mana ada chance situ la dia nak tarik rambut mika

 tangan macam orang besar

to the barber shop

Plan dah lama nak bawak Aariq shave his head. Mika dulu 7 months dah shave. Patut time baby lagi dah buat kan..tapi kesian sebab Aariq rambut macam halus je. Since Mika needs a hair cut, so bawak la Aariq sekali. At first elok je Aariq duduk atas kerusi tu but after few seconds terus nangis. Takut kot dengan shaver..so result dia ada la part yang tak dapat shave. Balik rumah, amik razor blade konong nak shave part yang tak kena tuh but guess what..of course razor blade dan shaver tak sama kan..so mmg licin la bila shave. Once dah start, kena habiskan..takkan nak bagi tak rata gaks..nasib Aariq cooperate well sebab buat dalam sink. Some pics :)

 badly needs a hair cut
 tadaa...saya la menangis jerit² tadi..sampai pipi pon merah²
 daddy shaving my head
 makan kertas! pantang betul jumpa kertas dia ni

saturday night

That evening balik from the career fair, bawak the kids jalan² ambil angin with their bicycles. Penat sebab the berapa jam berdiri but for them, anything. Plus weather was nice. Then mandikan the kids and put them to sleep as early as we could sebab movie night. That night tengok Snow White and the Huntsman sambil makan Dominos. Lovely. The movie for me..biasa je..probably because of the main actress? hmhm..

 aariq nak kacau abang minum milk
we all semua bersempit-sempit tidur in Mika's room that night
 mika still drinks his milk from the bottle (i dulu sampai 6 yrs old :P)
 fav companion to sleep (i think that one was a gift from my colleague)
 suka buat abang ni
our dinner that night :)

career fair

Went to the career fair on Saturday held at MidValley. Not to look for any job but promoting WK actually :) I've never participate in any of the job fair organised by WK so I thought why not. Hubby and Mika sent me to MV that morning. Reached there at 10am and by then, orang pon dah ramai and the job fair just open to public. Crowd was crazy at around 10.30 - 1pm, memang ramai orang sangat. People kept coming to the booth and we were busy explaining about this and that and managed to collect quite a number of CVs and not to mention application card. Had to stand from 10 till 2.30pm..stand lama, duduk ada la few minutes. Went around to check out other booths but sebab orang terlalu ramai, tak dapat la nak tengok betul². Dah la masa survey around tuh, I was with boss. Boss sporting je, very the cool :)

My shift ends at 2.30pm and nervous sebab balik kena naik train. Tak nak susahkan hubby to pick me up all the way to MV, dengan fed highway jam lagi..it's ok. First time naik train alone and it has been ages since the last time I naik KTM. A bit tricky here sebab kena switch train at KL Sentral. Bila benda pelik² ni, terus la rasa blur habis. Dah queue up dah beli tiket kat machine somehow the machine rejected my notes. Semua note I try but no luck. Machine tak accept RM1 ke sebab tak tulis pon RM1 kat situ?! Tapi I try gaks la notes lain. Pastu panic la..queue panjang kat belakang sampai tanya orang belakang..butang cancel mana, butang cancel? Hahaha..noob. Turned out memang machine tuh rosak..haishh..saja je. Before I nak insert ticket tuh I usha dulu orang depan, tengok² orang depan pon blur² plus machine kat MV tuh memang tak function ke eh time nak masuk ke platform tuh..I confident je jalan terus then bila baca..oh platform lagi satu..bukan yang ni..sama la dengan orang depan. Sama² kita patah balik yer. Lepas tuh, semua ok, senang pulak :) just that kena tunggu lama sikit at MV station. Sampai KL Sentral, follow sign board to Pelabuhan Klang je..then dah sampai to platform just nice sebab train baru sampai.

Penat memang penat career fair tapi rasa best sebab new experience. Dapat jumpa ramai orang..imagine ramai giler orang kat KL ni. Cerita kat hubby dia cakap "Kesian, tak pernah jumpa orang ramai²" Cisss..

that unfortunate incident


Woke up early that morning or was it forced to wake up by the kids..hhmmm..early riser la mereka ni. Took the kids out for a morning walk. If before 8am, weather memang best. Sejuk je. Then terasa nak makan nasi lemak makcik..so pergi tahpau with Mika. Today semua orang macam dah sihat, including la bibik (with that bertambah la task dia :p) Actually bukan I yang suruh, dia yang dengan rela hati je pergi lap all the sliding doors, basuh grill dekat luar and also did I mention dia basuhkan my curtain yang bertahun tak pernah basuh..good memang good but what if curtain tuh mmg tak boleh basuh ke apa..ok nvm benda baik, I ok je. My appetite pon dah datang balik, itu sebab beli nasi lemak :P

Lunch with mom, bro and sis dekat Shah Alam and an unfortunate incident happened. We were at this restaurant (nama dirahsiakan) and time ni Aariq duduk dlm high chair tengah makan. Tengah sedap² dia makan, waiter datang bawak my food. My mom dah cakap letak jauh sikit sebab ada baby, tapi dia tak dengar or entah tak alert kot. In the tray ada a bowl of soup. Aariq ni tangan dia cepat..so terus dia tarik bowl tuh. Nasib time dia tarik bowl tuh tak terbalik and bibik cepat² tarik high chair ke belakang. Tapi kena la jari² dia. He screamed and cried..and cepat² basuh tangan. Waiter ni nampak la dia rasa bersalah cakap sorry semua then tolong ambil cucumber sebab tu je benda sejuk yang ada time tuh. Sian Aariq..dan nasib baik kena sikit je and only to his fingers. Dah la baru baik demam kan..then kena pulak sup panas. Muka pon ada lebam² sebab jatuh la, terhantuk la..ganas betul. I teringat one case dulu terbaca kat blog someone anak dia kena sup panas..haish..things happen kan so mesti kena amik extra precaution especially bila ada baby/kids time makan².

My sister is leaving for Istanbul that night..holiday. How nice..tapi without any of us tagging along pon..just her together with this kakak from travel agency yang memang we all kenal since dulu² lagi. They are bringing this group makan angin there..so my sister, assistant la kiranya :) My dad is already in Perth for 5 days leisure trip and my mom ni boleh pulak tak nak ikut my dad. Dia cakap dah pergi dulu...ishh kalau I mesti ikut punya.

 i'm bored..abang is conquering this thing
 aariq dan rakan²..yg kuning tu gigi macam aariq :)
the injured fingers..
dah sampai rumah..ceria pulak
nampak susut dah sebab muntah dan purging

Anything for you

I wanna watch tv but mika is busy conquering it. Dah promise kat dia if dia pandai pass motion at toilet without the toilet trainer we are going to put a tv at his room. Now dia boleh pass motion at the toilet but he still needs the toilet trainer for assistance. Salah ajar ke? maybe things would be easier without that..hmm..entah. Not that tmpt lain got no tv but the best port kat atas ni je. So if mika got his own tv tambah lagi satu port best la kat atas :) cepat la mika..mommy sanggup belikan tv for u as long as u know how to pass motion without the assistance of the toilet trainer dah. Tinggi sungguh promise but yes anything

quiet saturday

Was supposed to go for a wedding last Saturday tapi the kids kan macam baru nak baik..so not a wise move to go anywhere plus wedding was held at Muar. If dekat lagi boleh la pergi. I don’t want to leave with a heavy heart so hubby pon cakap, no need to go. Kesian dia la sebab kena drive alone and he was dragging himself to go kot.

Actually I wasn’t feeling that well myself. Friday after work perut rasa semacam. I did not even take dinner sebab perut macam tak sedap. Mesti jangkit dengan budak² ni. So I slept early that night. Saturday morning pon tak lalu nak breakfast. Makan sikit sangat and bibik pon macam sakit perut gaks. Tuh sebab I was reluctant to go sebab bibik pon was unweell takkan la I nak tinggalkan Aariq alone with her.

By lunch time, I bawak Mika keluar sebab dah rasa sihat sikit. Brought him to Giant je sebab dia nak main dekat playground. Mika Alhamdulillah, recovering well. Pass motion pon dah normal. Next we went to tahpau ayam penyet and back home. Panas sangat dekat luar. Tunggu hubby balik and gosh, without him memang macam incomplete. Bawak the kids keluar petang tu and we went to McD, Subang. Out of all places..one sebab nak yang senang. 2nd sebab nak yang ada air-cond. The kids main dekat playground, Aariq more like crawling around. Quiet Saturday for us that day but good to be out with the kids.

 i'm lovin' it! (sebab dapat toy abang)

zharief aariq is 10 months old!

As mentioned earlier, budak ni dah pon 10 months and fall sick pulak on the day. Still Alhamdulillah and hope for many months to go. Aariq ni jenis jarang demam compare to Mika masa kecik. Pergi clinic pon boleh kira berapa kali and when the nurse tanya semlm, dia ada allergic dengan any medicine tak, I sampai kena fikir japs sebab as far as I know, I pernah bagi dia flu and fever med je, that's all. Hopefully antibody remain kuat yer (macam Mommy :P).

At 10 months, he is still standing with support, banyak dah jalan compare to crawling. Selagi ada benda dia boleh pegang, he will try to walk. Gigi masih empat but now ada tanda² gatal gusi yang ketara, dengan asyik nak gigit je. Could be the reason why dia demam gaks? He can imitate pegang phone then macam hello tapi letak kat mulut maybe sebab selalu nampak I on speaker mode kot, then bila tanya where's elmo..dia pergi to the book shelf and pick that elmo. Bila suruh sayang, pandai dah kiss. Pandai tengok cartoon, I mean dia boleh follow song la. If ada song, tangan pon clap² then swing² konon follow the rhythm.

Favourite hobby adalah buli Mika. Tarik rambut, tarik telinga, pegang mata, pegang hidung..naik atas badan Mika, rebut barang dengan Mika..semua ke arah-arah buat Mika. Ada one time tuh Mika geram, dia tolak adik dia ke belakang..nasib jatuh atas wooden floor tapi still sakit la. Dia suka tengok orang makan then bila tak dapat makan, mula la mengamuk. Hari tu I bagi rasa dia biskut suji, bagi sikit je la..then tak bagi dah. Mengamuk sampai nangis² sebab nak lagi. Oh one more hobby, suka baling remote² ke bawah sofa, then bila nak baling tuh, dia akan tutup mata and shake his head..konon macam aaa..noooo..(tapi tangan buat gaks). So cute, nanti if ada masa I record. Panjat² tuh hobi gaks sekarang. Sikit lagi nak pandai panjat sofa..so after this kena block sofa pulak.

A good boy and a bit more on the quieter side tapi tangan jalan. Mika kan jenis bising², dia macam opposite sikit well for now la. Dah kenal orang dan dah boleh nak orang gaks. Her aunts semua suka la dah dapat pegang Aariq compare time dulu². He can say "dadadada" bila suruh cakap "daddy", "mammmm" for makan and hello ada bunyi cam "ooooo" sikit. Mommy..takde nil lagi. Minum milk masih tak pandai nak pegang bottle sendiri, manja ni. Suka naik his bicycle petang² or pagi² and I can see that he's more on the observant type..could it be 2nd child syndrome? Overall he is doing well and Alhamdulillah for this precious gift. Happy 10 month old, Aariq. Love you so much!

get well soon Aariq

The day Aariq turned 10 month old was the day we had to bring him to ER. 10 months ago at about the same time, we welcomed this baby boy and exactly 10 months later, he decided to check out his place of birth :) Reason because dia start muntah² at about midnight, then few more times after that and last one lepas minum milk at 4 plus (just like Mika). So at 5, we all bangun termasuk la abang Mika yang busybody and get ready to go to the hospital. Sebab dah pernah admit kan Mika dulu, this time I decide nak pack barang² yang patut..sampai 2 bag! Just in case. Made our way to the hospital at about 6am, pesan kat bibik to wash the bedsheets (again), mop atas and also masakkan porridge Aariq. At ER, doc check and told us, virus infection (same case like Mika). Told you before that this thing is contagious so mesti dapat from abang la ni. Benda nak jadi kan. Doc said not to worry much coz he seems fine and nurse masukkan vomit medicine kat bawah tuh and ask us to monitor him at home. If dia keep on vomiting, tak nak makan apa², bring him back to the hospital. So monitor la dia whole day semlm. Good boy tak vomit dah but feverish sikit. Mika on the other hand dah almost a week tak pergi school. Belum fully recover sebab few times pergi toilet but doc said it’s normal la and will go on for few days. That evening, Aariq got visitors from her aunt Zira, Tok Bah and of course la my mom yang all the time around. Last time when they were still in Subang pon sanggup datang all the way to visit Mika each time Mika fall sick. Extended family pon ada tanya about Aariq and when Mika was admitted last time, rajin datang visit. Family, sayang kamu semua! Oh thanks to the friends yang wish and all at FB :) Please pray for speedy recovery and 100% sihat yer for the two kiddos.

get well soon Mika


Sunday at around midnight (dah masuk Monday la time ni), Mika terjaga then dia macam tak sedap badan. End up dia muntah atas tilam..banyak pulak tuh. That Sunday afternoon memang dia makan banyak, rice (sampai 2 kali tambah bibik cakap), biscuits pastu minum air sirap la, milo ada gaks kot. So terpaksa la tengah² malam tuh I rendam bedsheet semua. Hubby mandikan dia then put on new PJ for him. Sebab tilam dah kotor, hubby bawak dia tidur at hall and about 4 dia mintak milk. Right after dia minum, muntah lagi. I lupa pulak..tummy upset + milk is not a good combination. 2nd time muntah tak seteruk the 1st one but dia cakap la sakit perut. Hubby and I teman dia tidur dekat hall sampai la pagi. Breakfast makan toast sikit je + milo O. Kebetulan memang school dia cuti sebab concert that day, so no need to skip school but I took EL. Hubby...dia work from home..anytime pon boleh. How good is that?

We brought him to our fav clinic at Subang and doc prescribed vomit, colic and fever medicines sebab Mika a bit warmish. In the car, dia muntah lagi but dalam plastic bag la, memang bawak siap². Dia lembik je that morning + afternoon but bila petang dah active sikit just that still cakap sakit perut la. Doc cakap it’s a virus dan banyak case dah sekarang. Kids muntah², sakit perut. Can be contagious too, so doc cakap beware sebab parents pon boleh kena. Now that I have another kid, memang kena beware sangat but sometimes benda nak jadi kan, control macam mana pon, kena gaks. So extra precaution je la.

Balik je from clinic, buat laundry and kebetulan weather panas, so 3 rounds la machine the bedsheets and all. Bibik mop semua kat atas and by evening, no more smell dah. Bedsheets semua bau wangi sangat :) I pon buat light arrangement at Mika's room sebab nak masukkan tilam besar. Used to be in my room and Mika sleep on that but dah alang² clean up tuh, masukkan dalam bilik Mika for temporary.

 looks like someone is over excited!
 
 tarik pampers pulak
 oooo..abang's hairrrrr
ok dapat tarik rambut abang..yeay!

Tuesday tak pergi school sebab doc pon cakap better rest at home. No more vomiting but pergi toilet pulak 4-5 kali. Today pon I cuti kan dia jugak, nak monitor dia. Mika pulak cakap nak pergi school nak swimming but tak payah la. Rest je sayang. Semalam dan hari ni, all of them are at my mom’s. Speedy recovery Mika!

even the little one is excited about it


This was taken about a week ago. Masa ni ipad elok je lagi. Memang jadi rebutan la for the two brothers. Yang kecik pon pandai nak rebut, macam faham je kamu kan? Anyways, I think last Thursday kot, Mika bawak turun ipad masa nak gi school then I dengar ada bunyi jatuh. I dah suspect ipad but ingat cam oh normal la tuh. Dah sampai office hubby tanya if time I guna semalam battery mmg takde dah ke sebab on then blank je. I cakap la memang percentage kurang but takde la low. So hubby charge dia cakap tak keluar apa tapi ada sound. Bila I balik mmg confirm blank je. Tanya bibik then bibik cakap dia dekat belakang Mika bawak Aariq turun, then tak sempat nak sambut Mika dah baling..ada la 3 stairs macam tuh. Dah sampai bawah Mika baling lagi atas sofa and the ipad landed atas carpet. Budak ni tak rasa bersalah pon. Yer la dia tak faham lagi kot, not even 4 yrs old. So nak cakap banyak² pon dia bukan tahu meaning value and all. Haihhh...tak pasal² kena hantar repair..if hantar repair cam half the price of the new one and that is just an estimation. Warranty takde dah coz dah 1 yr. If la we are getting another one, this time kena beli casing yang boleh protect from jatuh, scratch and all.

open house @mom's

Hello. This post is long overdue and again, backtracking it to the actual date. Senang nak refer. Dulu masa rumah Subang, almost every year my mom akan buat makan² and invite her friends and dad's dan we all akan tag along nak invite our friends. Since rumah baru ni, ada la 2 kali before this dah buat makan² ajak friends and relatives, so masa raya that day, my sister nak ajak her friends over. Mom said I can invite my friends too, even asked hubby to invite his friends but majority memang my sister la sebab dia yang organise. My in laws all tak dapat datang. Sedih la jugak sebab thought boleh gather sebab every raya, it's either my parents pergi rumah derang or they will come, either way to meet. But it's ok, baru lagi jumpa time wedding my cousin hari tu.

My friends..I ajak tak ramai pon and it was on very the last minute notice I tell you. Eh, sincere tau ajak cuma tuh la, sebab bukan I yang organise kan..tak beriya sangat :) It was held on a Sunday and for sure la orang dah ada plan lain kan if ajak pon on Friday. I was given the 1 - 3pm slot dan dengan I sendiri datang that slot je. Bertuah betul kan? Tapi bibik was there the whole day, so tak la rasa bersalah tak tolong apa². Mika pulak boleh mengamuk tak tentu pasal time my friend, Erin was there. Apa ntah tak kena..by actually this was just the day before this happened. Maybe dah tak sedap badan kot. The girls only Faz and Erin could attend..but tuh pon more than enough :) After 3, I balik rumah dulu and rest and back to mom's house in the evening sebab food sangat banyak, dinner dulu la plus my cousins and aunt datang that evening

 siapa yang pakai tudung hitam tuh..well..biar la rahsia :P
 manja tok mi..alololo
 with jiran lama dekat Subang dulu

weekend project

Usually during weekend, memang selalu go out for breakfast. This time bawak Aariq sekali. The night before, I suruh hubby tarik tilam and we all semua tidur at hall depan tv. Rasa best pulak. Should do it more often. Normally if tidur ramai² macam ni time² holiday or balik kampung je. So once it a while buat dekat rumah sendiri on a weekend night best gaks.

the small one sibuk explore sana sini
mika without ipad..(will update in another entry on this)
 aariq suka makan, semua pon nak

Mika's Annual Concert 2012

Lama dah tunggu Mika nak perform at his school's concert ni..sebab dah practice dari bulan² lepas. Lagi excited sebab he was chosen by his teacher together with his classmate to give a short welcome speech before the performance. Kena dance to a Mexican dance and lagu dia yang Asereje, Las Ketchup. Quite catchy kan? Bila 4 yrs old aka babies of Real Kids, buat terus semua macam comel giler!

The concert was held at this SRJK school in USJ 1 and the kids kena be there by 3.30pm. Concert starts at 4.30pm. Kiasu or not I don't care. I want a nice view and memang kebetulan ada je seat kosong depan stage tapi tak dapat reserve seats for my parents and sister sebab first front rows memang penuh dah. Bukan Mika sorang je bawak atok, nenek..macam ramai je bawak :P and Mika is one lucky boy sebab ramai datang to give him support. Thanks to my parents and sister for coming! Mika happy sangat bila nampak kamu semua. Auditorium besar so banyak sangat tempat and view pon ok. Hebat sekolah ni ada auditorium besar macam ni. Tak bawak Aariq sebab leceh kot..nanti dia bising² dan Aariq ni pon bukan la jenis tahu duduk diam, asyik nak gerak je. 2X5 abang dia gaks.

Kan dalam movie ke apa bila ada scene parents touching² bila tengok performance anak, now I understand that feeling. Cuma masih bertahan la takde la sebak keluar air mata ke apa..just touching dan of course proud with him. The kids..what can I say, semua nya comel especiall the 4 yrs old. Eeeeee..macam mana teacher derang leh tahan eh tengok the kids everyday? Rasa nak picit² je. Mika tuh pon selalu je kena picit/gigit dengan mommy dia. One thing for sure memang respect the kids sebab boleh ingat step and all. Ada this one dance performed by 6 yrs old, susah sangat but they did it well!

 mana Mika?
 all of Real Kids, PH with their teachers
 mika and his friend, rachel giving a welcome speech
"dear parents. my name is Rachel/Mikhail. Now we are going to perform a Mexican dance. Sit back and enjoy our dance"

I admit time dia nak cakap ni both hubby and I nervous sgt sebab tengok kids lain bagi speech cam hebat je..siap berdialog bagai..but then they are 5&6 yrs old kot :P tanya Mika takut tak, dia cakap tak..good job Mika! you really made us proud of you. Harap sampai besar la macam ni. Actually ada delay 2 mins macam tuh, sebab just before they are about to perform, time tu the previous group tengah perform, I saw Mika kat tepi langsir tuh bisik something to his teacher. I dapat tangkap dia nak pergi toilet. Berlari la teacher dia bawak pergi toilet..so announcer tuh kena delay2 kan the event. Dut betul la Mika ni

 in action
 do that dance!
 mika rajin cerita so I basically know his friends
as in tahu la ni siapa that one siapa
 alololo..kecik² ni boleh la macam ni, dah besar macam ni siap kamu
 with his class teacher, Teacher Sarah and teacher Susan, admin
 supporters
die hard fans! lol

It was a nice memorable moment and only happened once in his lifetime as a 4 yr old la..good job Mika, love you soooooo muccchhh!!
