Yours Truly Birthday

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to Fara.. happy birthday to me!

My birthday was on 20th May and I only have the chance to post about it today. It is also my second daughter Arissa's birthday. She is three years old. Now I feel old as my children's getting bigger. Gosh!

Here's the picture of yours truly on her birthday. Why black and white? So can't see those beautiful ageing (cough) wrinkles. She's never gonna admit she's getting older. Forever 25 at heart she said.


I took a day off on my special day like always. Who wanna work on their birthday anyway? HEHE. I sent my girls to the daycare and my boy to school. I had my breakfast with Mr. Fruitheart near the stall at KWSP Wangsamaju. I needed to submit my application. After sending him to work, I went to the post office to renew my driving license. I didn't know they have upgraded made it like the identification card. So convenient.

I thought of going home after that and plan to go to Ikea. However, Mr. Fruitheart surprised me saying he took half day leave to celebrate. We had lunch at Bangkok House in TTDI. I like the place and always love Thai food. Delicious!

We ordered Som Tam (mango salad), Mr. Fruitheart said it was so-so but I like it. Popia roll for starters. I had tom yam fried rice with chicken and Mr. Fruitheart had fried rice with salted fish. For drinks he had Thai iced coffee and I ordered red ruby, sweet I like.


Birthday presents?


From Mr. Fruitheart.

Below is from my boy. Pen is for me to use when I go to class. How thoughtful.


Thank you Allah for giving me chance to live another day to enjoy this and spend it with my family.

P/S: I am thankful for every wish, gifts and love that I get from everyone.

My Bulging Tummy

I looked at myself lately and I am not happy with my bulging tummy. There are few other parts, but let's focus on that first shall we? I not the type who wears tight shirt or dress, but I can still my tummy. I am not pregnant and not have gained weight, but of all my body parts that I wanted a little bigger is NOT my TUMMY!

I am not dreaming to have a six pack but after three kids, it would be lovely to have a flat tummy like 17 years ago. I don't go to the gym, not exercising, not running on tread mil, not doing anything. Yes, that is the problem. Not doing anything. I just sit there wishing the bulging tummy will go away just like that.. whoooshhhh! Off you go!

I used to do yoga on my own long time ago (3 years ago!). Last only for few weeks. Hangat-hangat tahu ayam! Today I searched for yoga centre in my area TTDI, found few centres and Prana Yoga catches my attention. I told Mr. Fruitheart I think of enrolling myself to yoga class, and he said go for it. I am planning to start after our raya celebration. That is when you ate all the delicious food - rendang, lemang, lontong, ketupat, satay, kuih-muih like there's no tomorrow. And all your friends in FB will post something like this "Ate too much and gained 5KG after fasting month, I need to diet!"

I need to get fit and healthy because my life will be super full - work, family and study. Oh God, please give me high patience and peace of mind. Breath in, breath out.

P/S: We've signed our LO today for the new house we bought in CBJ. Next - S&P.

TAWC: Simple Meals

It was a hassle when you don't have a ready to eat meal at home. I was supposed to cook for our two weeks meal on the first week of May, but too lazy to go into the kitchen. So we bought outside food instead. Plus, Mr. Fruitheart just came back from Norway and we have a lot of catching up to do.

Last Sunday, I spent three hours in the kitchen. Total of six different meals for two weeks, BRAVO FARA!




3 packs of veggies, 3 packs of chicken tomyam, 2 packs of chicken kurma, 2 packs of spicy beef, 2 packs of black pepper beef and 2 packs of masak lemak udang sama kacang buncis. I made make ahead breakfast for Mr. Fruitheart too - chicken and scramble eggs wrap. Since I will be fasting this week, so nine wraps can cover four days of breakfast.

As for my boy, I made him mini pizza using English muffin and pepperoni. He loves it. Even his friends want some of those. My boy told me maybe I can sell them to his friends. A good idea, but I will think of it I said to him.

Girls? They eat what their parents eat. They will have breakfast and lunch at daycare. They love pasta. I can make it this coming weekend.

P/S: Oh my English!

10 Goals for This Week #20 2015 + Update on Last 2 Week's Goals


My days were full of activities for the past weeks. Work has not been that kind too, oh well what else is new. Work will not be less in the upcoming days. Go to work, complete task and go back home. Repeat the same until pay day and spent the money earned wisely. HEHE.

It is still not too late to wish "Happy Mother's Day" to myself and to all mothers out there. This is the first year, I didn't have the chance to say happy mother's day to my beloved mother. It has been 6 months after you left us Mom. I missed you.

Yesterday was a very productive day for me. Cooked for our two weeks meals and cleaned the house. I set my alarm at 6AM, but only started my task at 8AM. It's Sunday, why should you wake up early right?



In the evening, took my children to the park after a month of not stepping their foot there. Unfortunately, the playground is under construction again. It looks like they're building a small hut. My second daughter was frustrated, and lucky there are Giant Bubbles for them to play.

So here are this week's goals:

Mothering/Marriage/Family:
Print out reading materials for boy.
Spend time with boy during study for exam.

Favourite Quote of The Week #19 2015 - Happy Birthday Mom

 
On this day dear mother, you should be 56.

It will be the first year..
We will not be celebrating your birthday,
We will not be celebrating fasting month together,
We will not be celebrating Syawal together,
I will not be able to wish you "Happy Mother's Day",
I will not be able to wish you "Happy Birthday Mama".

You will not be there mother.
I missed you.

Registered Shaklee Member

I have been consuming Shaklee supplements since the end of 2013, after I gave birth to my baby girl. Up until today, Alhamdulillah I am still consuming it and on Monday 27th, I registered as a Shaklee member.
 
I have told my friend whom I registered under her, for a start I would use it for my own. I am not going to do sales. I did plan and dream of becoming an independent distributor one day. I envy my friend who is able to work from home, get a good income by doing home based business. Just not Shaklee, something else too. My friend told me it takes time, planning, courage, and determination to achieve success like what she have today. It takes a lot of hard work. I agree to that. There is no easy money.

I told myself by registering as a member, it will be my first step of being an independent distributor. You have to be comfortable in whatever you do. Mr. Fruitheart and my boy also consuming Shaklee supplement and both of us are using their skin care product too. So far we are satisfied with the product. I bought the deep cleanser on Dec last year and it hasn't finished until today. Will it last last until June? Or end of the year I don't know. Worth the money spent I would say.

I hope one day I can be a successful Shaklee independent distributor. Insyallah. :)
