Favourite Quote of The Week #39

Ya Allah Ya Tuhan Kami, Andai Kau berkenan limpahkanlah kepada kami Cinta yang Kau jadikan pengikat rindu, Rasulullah dan Khadijah Al-Qubra yang Kau jadikan penghias keluarga Nabi-Mu yang suci.
Ya Tuhanku Yang Maha Pengasih Andai semua itu tak layak bagi kami, maka cukuplah permohonan kami dengan redha-Mu, Jadikanlah kami suami isteri yang saling mencintai di kala dekat dan jauh, saling menjaga kehormatan di kala jauh, saling menghibur di kala duka, saling mengingat di kala bahagia, saling mendoakan dalam kebaikan dan ketakwaan, saling menyempurnakan dalam peribadatan.
Ya Tuhanku Yang Maha Penyayang, Sempurnakanlah kebahagiaan kami dengan menjadikan perkahwinan kami ini sebagai ibadah kepada-Mu, dan bukti pengikutan dan cinta kami kepada sunnah Rasul-Mu, Sesungguhnya Kaulah Yang Maha Pemurah Lagi Maha Penyayang. Amin Ya Rabbal Alamin.

Homeschool, Reading and Learning

I had this note in my iPhone for what I need to do the next day. Since I am pregnant, I do need this note.. no I can't paste sticky note on my forehead right? That would be weird.

I found out kiddo had a little bit trouble in creating his own sentences. Usually with his Bahasa Malaysia homework. And he always asked me how to do it and I can see the frustration on his face. I haven't seen how he did it for English. I asked myself, how can I help him? Give him more books to read? Make more sentences? OK, I know this is just an excuse.. due to my current condition, I am not much of a help to keep an eye on his studies. I feel so bad and blame myself for not being a good teacher to my own son.

So I was searching the Internet 'how to read for kids, how to improve your Bahasa Malaysia' and so many other hows. I came across these 2 websites when I searched for phonics techniques www.adikbijak.com and www.readnetwork.com. When kiddo was in kindergarten his teacher taught him rea…

Me and My Third Trimester

Third trimester? That means baby going to come out soon. OK now that makes me scared. "Ala anak dah nak masuk 3, nak takut apa. Orang dah berpengalaman. Sekali teran je dah keluar. Sakit sikit je." Biasa dengar? Hello? Excuse me. Every pregnancy is different. And I am the type of no matter how many times I've gone through it, I AM STILL AFRAID!

I am on my 28 weeks. Today, the babybump application told me this:
Baby Size - 14.8 in chinese cabbage
Baby Weight - 2.25 lb

Feeling Like a Punching Bag?
The little one growing in your belly is getting stronger, and his strength, combined with the increasing size of your uterus, may cause you some pain or discomfort. Your uterus is pressing against your organs, and when your baby occasionally moves, he may bump or poke them, causing you to feel sharp, stabbing pains or pressure under your ribs. This pain, although unpleasant, is not uncommon. The best treatment is to lie down or switch positions until baby is down for the count, and yo…

Finding Helper / Maid Part II

Continuing our story with finding helper.

For your info yes we do searched registered agency here and there. We have been provided with the amount we have to pay and the profile. On one of the day, I stumbled upon an advert Pembantu Asal Jawa while searching for helper.

To be honest, the way the person posted the advert caught my eye and attention. Manis sangat! I sent an email to prt_indon@yahoo.com. Few minutes later I received a reply together with profile of candidates and the price. Only RM2800 and of course I got blinded! I keep on telling myself, where would you get RM2800?? All were asking for RM7-12K. Gosh! This is way too cheap. Way way way too cheap. I told Mr. Fruitheart and he called the number provided in the email +6287722261674.

Yes, it was Indonesian mobile number.

The person who answered it was soft spoken and speak Indonesian language. At one point we did asked ourselves again, is this for real? I even did a checked on the Internet by using keyword prt indon and yes the…

Favourite Jokes of The Week #36

This is not a quote or poem which like usual post I did every Thursday. Something I find truly hilarious and funny!

Little Girl on a Plane – Anonymous

A California congressman was seated next to a little girl on the flight to D.C. When the politician turned to her and said, 'Let’s talk. I’ve heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.'

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and asked, ‘What would you like to talk about?’

‘Oh, I don’t know,’ said the congressman. ‘How about nuclear power?’ and he grins.

'OK,' she said.

‘That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?’

The politician, now visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, thinks about it and says, ‘Hmmm, I have no id…

Me The Huge Preggy Mommy

Me and myself at 27 weeks. I gained 3KG! Now my weight is 59. OMG! My doc said, 'You ate a lot eh?' Errr.. it was not me doc, it was the baby in my tummy. She loved western food. Especially spaghetti and mashed potato with cheese. HEHE.


P/S: I feel heavy and walks like a penguin. Sometimes I do feel like a giant polar bear. HUGE! :(

Finding Helper / Maid

I thought we would never have to deal with maid and domestic helper issue. Boy I was so wrong. Baby girl's babysitter is unwell and has to go for operation. Her last day with the babysitter was last month. Of course I am sad and so did Makcik Aishah (my friend's mother). She cried when she said.. "Kesian Arissa, nenek tak boleh jaga dah. Nenek sayang Arissa ni. Senang jaga dia. Baik je." (Pity Arissa, grandma is not well to take of you. I love you. It was not hard to take care of you. Such a good girl). Teary eyes.

So me and Mr. Fruitheart have been hunting for helper since last two weeks. I can say it was such a tiring process, the hassle and trouble we've gone thru makes us stress! Of course we've read the news everywhere about runaway maids, the procedure and so on. And now we're experiencing it.

We asked around for contact and some friends suggest us few agencies. Yes, the price is so damn expensive as we know it. We asked for profile and we did shortli…
