I started 2005 with myself grounded at home for confinement period. And yes, alhamdulillah idlan was safely delivered at SJMC on friday, 10th dec 2004. Though i was on c-sect because the baby was breech, and confinement period was quite tense and tiry for i couldnt move around at ease due to the pain, im so grateful for having pruzz, the greatest hubby on earth and my mom aka umi to accompany and help me throughout the period. First few weeks was tough, i was bed ridden on the first day, the next day i could already stand and moved with my body halfly bended, the following days things got easier and again the credits shd go to my hubby, he was the one who mandikan idlan, changed diapers, etc etc...and he was truly good at it tho it was his first time :) Luv u!!!
Days flied with us having new responsibilities, being the mother and father to a little cute baby. Not an easy job for first timers like us, definitely there were flaws here n there, but alhamdulillah we can coped with that. But dugaan Allah tiada sape yg tahu..we fret when he was diagnosed having pnuemonia at 7mo. I was on leave for a week, plus a few more days on mc (courtesy of the doc yg baik hati) to take care of him. The anxiety that we had that time, hanya tuhan yg mengerti. And i guess our prayers were heard...he recovered and till now he grows as a healthy little boy, no more major illness except the normal flu yg sekali-kala dtg bertandang :) At current stage, he can already stand on his own, meniti from one end to another, climb the stairs (i guess he just figured out that the stairs are interesting enough for him to play with :p) till upstairs dgn lajunya, but lucky enough for me he didnt notice that apart from climbing he can also descend the stairs! And the cheeky part about him, he likes to imitate some of the things that either me or hubby did. When we chat and laugh over something, suddenly he laughs as if he understands us, we clap hands he also claps, abah tampar peha mama he also tampar me but mind u the intensity was much higher sbb tgn dia kocik kan, abah buat2 batuk dia pon ikut batuk, abah sembur dia sembur, ask to show hands for salam he also salam and cium tgn kita with the saliva, etc etc....the list is too long to be written over here but ya allah, thank u so much for giving us the opportunity to witness all these things. It was indeed such a great experience that no one can trade it off with anything.
Career wise, well i got nothing to be impressed upon to share with u, overall things going well in 1090, i develop some of the skills of which i hardly used when i was in finance before. Good relationship was established with 'some' of the customers, bad ones still do not exist lucky me :p, negotiating over things that usually of not in the interest of the customer, well am also good at it..now that they should know they're not always in the 'RIGHT' postition. My beloved hubby alhamdulillah settled his master already, so moving on next to c0mplete his journals and later, the phd. As for myself, i didnt intend to pursue, no doubt i had difficulties to decide but after thinking and digging every single views i have, yes i've decided not to. Not in this very short term but who knows i might continue when i reach 30 years old...hehe iyola tuh :p I've no specific reason, not that i'm afraid to face all the challenges or obstacles awaits ahead, ntahla, the determination is not there. I dont want things to be running halfway like before, so better dont than quit in the middle. Well maybe am not ready to sacrifice the time that i have now, lazying around with the family every weekends, tgk tv, tgk movie, shower the utmost attention and love i can give to idlan and hubby, bla bla bla....byknyer alasan aku eh?? hmm i just try to be honest to myself :) So to my dear frens out there (specifically aini and julie), my very best wishes to the both of u, may u all fulfill and complete the course wth flying colours! Aku tumpang gembira utk korang jela ok!
Moving on to the new year, i've already marked my calendar for our jalan2 habis duit activities! Yes am sure there'll be lots of fun waiting ahead, but of course i have to forgo something in order to get something, nothing is free in this real world we're living in right? My cuti my money...ohhhh i keep on looking and calculating and organizing my budget, though sounds pathetic but hey, i need to do proper arrangement so that i can go for the holidays with complete peace of mind kan...hehehe
And hopefully we can move in to our very new/own house next year...though it's not our dream house and it's not that BIG compared to others, it still mean a lot to us because we're forking our very own hard earned money to buy it :) but to move in means another sum of cashflows going out kan? hehe pening pening tp takper, still have time to save and save....
Since there're so many forecasted cashflows already parked in our book, we've decide to apply some cost cutting activities next yr, maybe i shd say our azam taun baru kot hehe...so rank top of the list are:
- no more unnecessary weekend outing to shopping malls (right now i can say almost every weekend we gonna have shopping trip either sat or sunday)
- cut daily expenses by preparing breakfast, both for me n hubby (that requires strength and will to be able to wake up early and cook not only for idlan's meal but also us :p)
- to be in control not to buy soooo many new clothes/other things for idlan (this only apply to me)
The second item works well for the past 2 days, hope we can maintain and sustain the rest of the activities for our own good.
So allow me to wish you all HEPPY NEW YEAR! May the year 2006 shines your life with prosperity, good health, happiness, and more.....thanks to all my visitors, am welcoming any comments/opinions on anything. Nice knowing u all, be it in reality or thru webbie. God bless us........amin.
