Birthday Preparation: Part 1


Okay. Don't ask me why I disappeared. I know it's been almost 3 years. But the reason is so cliche, I am busy. Haha. And please bear with me since I'm a little bit rusty in writing after all these years.

So moving forward, this post is wholly dedicated on the preparation of my daughters' birthday. For those of you who missed the latest news, yes, I am now a mother of two adorable and cheeky little girls.

Anyway, back to the story. I have been planning to host a birthday do for my girls since early this year. The girls were born in February and July respectively, so I thought a joined celebration between the two months would be great.

The birthday theme will be Wild Wild West / Cowboy / Western, whatever you might want to call it. Being a very detailed me, I spent quite some time searching for vendors and looking for a venue. Both me and my husband have a big family and most of them stayed around Klang Valley, so the number of guests will definitely exceeds 50 pax. Finding a place that can accommodate my guests is crucial too seeing that we have to oversee the budget as well.

After painfully scouting around, I decided to settle at Nando's Citta Mall. The restaurant is very near to my workplace so I can easily pop by whenever I have things to discuss with the Restaurant Manager. They have the usual menu with bottomless beverages (yeay!), Plus, the restaurant decoration fits my theme. They can even accommodate my 60 guests and that's just great.

As for the candy table, I tried to avoid all those hard candy, chocolates and snacks and asked my vendor to change the menu so both kids and adults can enjoy it too. I might as well changed the name to dessert table instead. This is where I wanted to put the birthday cakes and it will be the prominent point during the kids' cake cutting session. Here's what I have in mind:

I wanted the table to be simple and rustic at the same time, with lots of brown and a bit of blue and red. I hope the vendor can pull it off according to my liking.

I shall share my next ideas on my next post, so that'll keep me writing (no reasons to disappear anymore!). Vendors and their contacts will be revealed after the party so I can justify whether they are worth for hire to or not.

How to: Build Online Webshop

There's a lot of online shopping websites out there. For an avid shopper like me, buying things online is like a normal routine and I do have some websites which I frequent to whenever I had the sudden urge to browse around. However, I do stick to some ground rules before I decided to purchase anything, just to be on the safe side. This applies especially to new online shopping websites, which had multiply day by day.

Of course we had many choices out there, an eye for shopping is good and so does good ethic in deciding finesse and bad. If I stumbled upon a suspicious looking websites, where everything looks so basic and unappealing, I immediately had doubts and reverted from buying anything from them even though what they offered is something that is IN or perhaps, cheap.

From this view, we can conclude that a fancy and nice looking website is essential in attracting more customers to come to your online shop and it's a bonus if they came out with some purchases. You can set up your online webshop with a free blog host, for example the ever so popular Blogger. But isn't it way cooler and proper if you have an established website for your online shop?

With low payment from as low as rm399 per year, is the host provider for you to build online webshop, with its easy to use shopping cart system. The best part is, there's no hidden charges or fees. Whatever you see on the price list, that's it. To make you happy, the cost is only RM1.10 per day. Take this: setup fee is included in the price as well. Okay, double good!

If you have very little knowledge in IT or had no idea on how to build your own webshop, fret not. The system installed is very easy to use. You can fully utilize its simple application and design templates in order to set up your webshop. If you're still clueless and need to ask around, you can always e-mail them at or contact them at +6016-7280-857.

Saying this, you can always consider if you're looking for an easy solution to build your online webshop. You can always upgrade your website whenever you're business is expanding. A good website for your webshop potrays a whole fine look of your growing business. Good luck!

Super Long Hiatus

I missed blogging! Oh my, I have been extremely busy and maybe too lazy to even write a post. Elly, tolong rajin sikit ye next time. Butttttt, you can always catch me in action on Instagram. :)

I'm doing great, and so does Aisyah who will be 4 months this weekend. Time flies so fast. The next thing I know, she's able to laugh, smile and even coo now. The best thing ever of being a mom. Heh.

Aisyah at 3 months, weighing 6.4kg

Newsflash! I'm so not in the mood to work now. Yes, I woke up every morning loathing my job. I know I should be thankful to have sturdy monthly income but work is no fun now. Everything has changed since I was transferred to another department. People are different there and that includes my superiors. I work in a government agency and you know how the typical Malays work. Banyaknye kaki bodek and tukang sebok! I was on half-paid and unpaid leave for almost 4 months during my pregnancy days. Reasons being, I wasn't feeling well and most of the time, I just need a break from all these suck-ups.

I just came back from my 3 months maternity leave early this month. And guess what, on the second week of working itself I have started my strikes with a collection of MCs and emergencies. I know they were talking behind my back all these while but, do I look like I care? I suddenly have this strong urge to resign and stay at home looking after my baby. I have to force myself and drag my ass out of the bed everyday to go to work. Please, please, please... I just want to be a stay at home mum. I will be much happier just doing house chores.

Hopefully it'll come true, one of these days.

Now, I really need a vacation to relax and reward myself. This year has been kinda awful to me, but not on the arrival of Aisyah. That's an exception. Now... a trip out of Malaysia would be awesome, with a baby. Hmmmm that's challenging but surely an experience. Hong Kong, maybe? Wheeeeeeeeee!

Majlis Aqiqah Aisyah Lily

Last Saturday, we hosted an Aqiqah ceremony for Aisyah. It's actually a combined ceremony with my sister since Aisyah and her baby boy were just one month apart from their birth date. Plus, my dad decided to pay for all three kambing golek so there, we saved up a lot. Thank you so much Abah!

The ceremony was  more to families and relatives only and we had fun of course, but.... there was a MAJOR incident, thanks to the caterer which left us feeling all pissed off. And some hiccups here and there too from other vendor. Will blog about it later in another post. Above all, we were glad knowing that all guests left the ceremony with their stomach fully loaded. Wheeeeeee!

Ok, enough babbling now let's jump to the pictures. Just a few only tho since we were too busy to even remember to snap. Official photos from our photographer are still in the process.

Aisyah was somehow fascinated with her cradle and the flower ball.

Mommy and Daddy camwhoring before the ceremony kicks off. The theme for the ceremony is purple  and blue but since most of our attire are still at the laundrette, we decided to wear our Nikah outfit. Surprisingly yes, I can still fit in it! Yeay-ness!

Marhaban group yang paling best everrrrrrrrr sumpah tak tipu! Nak nangis rasa huwaaaaaaaaa!

In the middle of berzanji, we as usual were busy taking pictures. 

I will reveal the contacts and write a review on each vendor involved for this ceremony. No transparency, I will write based on what has happened to us. Hahaha kontroversi sangattttttt so stay tuned!

By the way, Aisyah turned 2 months old today! A healthy baby girl, Mak and Abah love you sooooooooo much! Nanti kita pergi cucuk ye.. kahkahkah!

Post Raya Updates

Everybody's been writing about their Raya story. How was mine? It was okay. Aisyah (and her Mommy) just barely passed the confinement stage so we can't celebrate much because what she did was just sleeping, crying and waking up to feed. And I had engorgement on the first and second day of Raya, so it was no fun at all when visiting our relatives.

This was the first time I spent my Raya with my husband's side and at our own house too. The mood to decorate the house has subsided since I've settled that part much much much earlier. I was quite excited to actually try on new recipes and made my own kuih raya tho. These were made on the day before Raya. Gigih sangat! Hehe.

The dual colored, super soft Biskut Susu.

The favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies. This was gone in 5 days because me and husband kept munching on them. Ohhhh sugar high!

Oh, a  family picture during the first day raya, taken at my FIL's kampung in Sabak Bernam. I didn't have proper kampung or kampung house to relate to so that explains why I was uber excited to balik kampung to a real kampung house. But since I was in pain, (thanks to the engorgement!) the mood for pictures was gone and we managed to briefly pose just for the sake of Raya.

Pardon Aisyah's outfit. Her blue Raya dress was spoiled with spills plus it was hot during half of the day so we decided to change her to something much comfortable.

So how was your Raya?
