8th Anniversary

It’s our 8th anniversary today.

Hubby stayed at home for half day, looking after our eldest who had just undergone his ‘khatan’ and unfortunately got complications barely 1 hour after the klamp procedure. Idlan is recuperating now, at my mom’s.

Me off to work as usual after a straight four-day leave. It’s moving towards the year-end and the works are just too taxing and everything is becoming super urgent right now. The system is not stable and keep on going intermittent, went down every now n then..bagus la tuh!!

We were supposed to be on leave today, our initial plan was to watch Ombak Rindu or any movie, have a proper lunch together and probably do some window shopping before picking up the kids at 630pm. I have planned to make a special cake for him over the weekend.

But Allah has a better plan for us.

Marriage is not only about love, but tolerating and understanding each other roles and responsibilities, prioritizing certain things and not to think about one self only. We’ve been together in this journey for 8 good years, went through the sweat and tears, joy and laugh, everything, together.

I miss my hb, miss my eldest who for the first time separating with us (until this coming weekend), miss my cheeky n naughty firas, and my lovely ammar. But still I need to be in the office.

Happy 8th Anniversary Yang…thank you for everything.
Love you now n forever.
May Allah bless our marriage, and that we’ll always be guided with iman and akal in whatever we’re doing.

Hubby texted me yesterday confirming that he has fixed for Idlan to undergo 'berkhatan' this coming Friday at 3pm. He requested me to take half day, to accompany our eldest and sort of giving moral support throughout the procedure.

Idlan was all ok with the news. For the past few weeks we kept on asking whether he is ready for khatan or not this year. Initially he said 'no', what more with Firas shouting and telling 'firas takmo sunat firas takootttt' everytime we brought up the khatan issue. But recently upon listening to his friends' stories that has went thru the khatan, he came to us and said 'ok'.

Just now i had lunch with my usual colleagues at our pantry and tell them about the khatan story. They (the men) said khatan is one of the biggest event in any men's life apart from akad nikah. Probably we can equate this with women and labour, isnt it?

Ok so now i got the point why hubby wanted me to take half day leave :)

Btw, it's 9th Dec on Friday, and 10th is his born day. Celebrate besday dgn bersunat la nih!

Sored nipples

I'm now on Bepanthen cream every now n then. Both my nip*les cracked n sored quite badly. I guess it's due to ammar's style of latching yg ganaz n suke memain. I'm now nursing my 3rd child and this was actually my first time experiencing sored nip*les...before this cuma dgr keluhan org lain huhu

Kind of fobia when it comes to nursing time these days. Few times i shouted to him n he cried. Sori sayang but mama just couldnt help it. Sakit sesangat!!

Double birthday celebration

A fruitful, and lovely weekend indeed.

We (i.e. me and SIL) threw out an ad-hoc plan to have a join birthday celebration for the kids. It was a pre-celebration for Idlan since his birthdate is actually on the 10 of Dec, while for my niece Hana, it was a post-birthday celebration (29 Nov). Had the celebration at my bro's place in Ampang. A close-knit gathering among the family members only, but we truly had a good time chit-chatting and sharing stories. Most importantly, i'd say the kids had a blast time throughout the evening. Gegak-gempita rumah abang...my mom said "ni lah rupanya kalo ade anak ramai..kecoh satu rumah :p

I planned to make a DFCC on Friday night, but a migraine attack since evening made me go to bed very early. Woke up at 4.30am with a heavy head still, and straight away went to kitchen to start baking. This cake was quite 'leceh' since it involves few steps and i knew i'm gonna take a long time to finish up the whole cake (what with ammar being around...arghh byk dugaan!).

here goes the large DFCC (1.7kg) with maltesers! Sanggup stop by at Shell just to buy those maltesers :p Made the cake at 4.30am, and only finish up at 11am (lama kan!).

This is a large buttercake made by my SIL, frosted with non-dairy whipped cream. I like the color combination, very beautiful! i can see hana really loved her cake, when we arrived at her house she kept on telling us "kite ade kek angry bird!!!". Then Firas uttered back "kite ade kek coklat bulat-bulat!!" Hahaha kids being kids, they must've been very excited when it comes to birthday thingy.

Those are calleabout dark choc button. mahal giler okes, no joke :p

the line-ups

my SIL made fried spiral pasta and mee rebus. Me brought over nothing except the cake isk isk blame it to the migrain! The mee rebus was so delish that hubby gave me a hint 'awak kena buat jugak nih'. So i asked my SIL for the recipe and guess what, she used the instant mee rebus paste rupanye...brand Adami. Sila cari ok..serius sedap, umi pun puji sedap :)

cake-cutting time!! My SIL's cake is very tall while mine is very short haha malu malu!
