Natgrad dan segalanya

1. Paper for Natgrad submitted. Finally. Alhamdulillah. My first attempt in writing technical paper;i.e conference paper. Have to admit it ain't easy. Ingat senang mcm tulis blog? oh. tulis blog pun tak senang tau. Ok so I finally got the green light from my sv, the Prof. to submit the paper on the 9th Feb. Legaaaa sangat. Now awaiting for the acceptance notification. Kena doa banyak2 ni so that my paper will be accepted and qualified for conference. InshaAllah ada rezeki dapat present paper during Natgrad Conference on 8 & 9 April 2015, right before the due date. Pray for me okay. :)

2. Now that I am in my 3rd trimester (to be exact 30 weeks). 10 weeks to go. InshaAllah. The baby inside is healthy alhamdulillah, kicking actively.

3. Now I am in the midst of pulun ganti puasa. 2 down, 6 more to go. #nangis

4. On another note, Sara skrg ada hobi baru. She likes to write: Alphabet. And started to learn to read. Go go Sara! And she's getting mature too, and clingy, and chatty. Oh anakku. #love

5. List barang baby dah buat. Bought few things. Banyak jugak yg recycle, such as breastpump, tub mandi baby, stroller, baby car seat etc. Ye la kan barang dah ada buat apa nak beli lagi.. plus everything is still in excellent condition. Tak baik membazir kan. hehe. Btw we planned to do some shopping for baju n baby's necessity this week. 30 weeks I think its not too early n not too late, isn't it?

6. Okay till I write again. Let's get back to work.

Let's get back to work, VAIO

Alhamdulillah, I am 25 weeks along and in the best of health. The baby bump is somehow showing and everyone is noticing nowhere to hide hehe.

Sara Hana, she's at school. Alhamdulillah she has progressed a lot now and it is no more difficult to wake her up early in the morning. I like it when she can fit herself into routine. And oh since she is in full day programme, she's now with different classmates but I suppose they are those she likes/adores/close the most even since she was in regular session *wink*

Sara at school Session 2015

Today to remark, my VAIO has started working after fewwwwwwwwwwwwww months of rest. Urgh. I hate to say it. Yes, after a long, so long pause, I have to regain back my determination and motivation to start working on my research. Ohsonangis ok?? And I have new aim and target!!!! To finish simulation on February 2015, and to graduate on September 2015. Yes, 2015 is a tough yet wonderful year. InshaAllah. Now I just have to keep it up and work towards my target. I have to balance and juggle between WORK, STUDY, and FAMILY. Boleh, boleh, mesti boleh! Suhana boleh kan!? Berusaha!!!!!

Well so I have to resume to digging and reading journal and papers so meh kita layan photos of our weekend. :)

Pic from google:
Nak tau motif gambar ni? Sbnrnya nak lunch kat sini on sunday but sampai2 je kedai tutup it's only 1:45 pm I wonder kedai tu mmg tutup ke atau tutup awal sbb org ramai lauk pun dah habis knowing that its sunday kan. We end up eating nasi daun pisang at Al-Salam instead. Ok la but I still wanted to try this, someday, inshaAllah.

Si cantik Sara finally got her long-awaited toys :robocar amber. Priced 59.90 at Aeon

Beli cake @Aeon jugak. Dan seperti biasa tiap2 kali beli kek mesti nak happy birthday blow candle cake cutting etc. :P +Muhamad Mukhlis Ahmad 

Listen here. You will be my BFF until Sep 2015 until both of us graduate ok!! So please bear with me, my dear VAIO

bag raya. yahoo!!

I received this package today. To be exact, just now. Few minutes ago. Yes. :)

Let's dig what's inside. 

Haha. takde la suspen sangat kan. But t'was fast though. I just ordered yesterday, and today, tadaaa here it is, in my arms. hehe. poyo statement. I love the fact that it is big that I can dump everything inside hahaha and it has 2 bags. I so love this bag. I super love this bag. Ye la baru kan.... #eyesrolling

Finally, an update!

Dah berbulan nak update. Tapi ada je obstacle. Internet slow la, no usb cable to transfer photos la, too many works la, bla bla bla. Excuses.

A lot have has been happening since the previous post. Banyaaaak sangat. Sampai I think I have lost the sense of writing, and my skills with 'word' is fading. Teruk sangat. 2014 is almost towards its end and 2015 is approaching. I have a lot, ok like really crucial 'datelines' to achieve in 2015. The two most important yang mesti mesti mestiiiiii tak dapat tidak kena jugak setel by 2015. Hadoi. Pikir pun dah serabut. Dengan research yang verrrrryyyyyyyy slow progress (or should I say not progressing langsung since July?). oi oi master tu kena habis bulan 4 tau??? paling koman pun kalau nak drag viva lambat sikit pun takpe la tapi macam berangan je nak habis bulan 4/2015? Bulan 4 kau dah nak beranak kot! Bila masa nak pulun master bila masa nak pikir beranak and confinement lagi? Pening pening. And oh btw I am 22 weeks along and it felt soooo long sbnrnya kan almost 15 or 16 weeks to go. Takpe takpe anticipate and sabar mama! =D

Ok dah. Enough of it.

Apart of that, Sara si bucuk macam to is like a grown up girl. She's still, petite but she's like terlebih matang dari usia. Ha, amik kau. Dulu dok kata pelakon budak pompuan tu mcm lebih matang dari usia. There goes your dotter. I guess girls are typically like that kot. Cepat matang. 

So, a wrap up of 2014 la kot. Apa2 yang tak sempat nak update dulu... sbb faktor M.a.l.a.s itulah. Yang sebenar-benarnya. No other excuses. 

1. Alhamdulillah Sara managed to cope and suits herself well to her school environment. For first 2 days je dia mcm sikit2 nangis. Pastu ok dah. Bila berkawan dialah juara. Hehe. Well, I guess BBIM was a great choice indeed for a start. And knowing her potential and partiality, kami percaya we did a wise decision sending her to bbim.  She managed to mix well with other kids, make friends, know how to make friend, develop interests (she loves colors), learn how to learn, build respect and most importantly she gains her confidence. Kalau dulu Sara ni mmg pemalu sangat sangat. Skrg dah ok. Siap ada bestfriend dah tau. Hehe. Btw, Alhamdulillah, nampaknya sel-sel otak berhubung dengan baik. Mama and ayah pray for nothing but the best for you dunia dan akhirat sayang. Always remember that!

2. Tahun ni we didn't managed to hit any extravagant place for holiday. Cuti-cuti malaysia je. Blame the hormones. Pegi mane je kan. Recently was Hello Kitty Town JB (we went there twice d. Thanks to the hugeeeeee fan of Hello Kitty), pastu mane lagi eh? Eh eh mcm tak boleh recall je pegi mana. Rasanya ada holiday tapi dekat-dekat je la. And thats it. Takpelah nanti ingat I'll write on another post. 

3. InshaAllah, we are expecting a second baby in April 2015. The early pregnancy was disaster, down with severe morning sickness. Asyik muntah letih angin. I barely did nothing at home. Alhamdulillah by month 5 its getting better. Doa-doakan lah both of us sihat and selamat towards the delivery date. Amin.

4. Benda yang paling guilty nak mention. Master research. As you know I am on 50-50 mode. Coursework and research. Done with subjects. Alhamdulillah managed to get 4-flat for 2 consecutive semesters. Skrg ni mode research terumbang ambing. Sebenarnya I have clear mission and picture of what I am doing it is just that I have no time and no courage to focus on it. Kejap2 kena buat itu, kena buat ini. Last2 my simulation jadi macam rumah tak siap. Abandoned. Sedih tau. And guilty sangat. I really hope I can, at least do something before beranak ni. And on schedule pun my last semester is April 2015. Tak pun at least boleh finish master in 2015 pun ok dah. Planning dan cita-cita tu ada, ok la kan. Tapi...... execution hampeh! :(

5. Sebenarnya ada keje ni. I have to get it over and done with kerja-kerja di ofis sebelum new semester starts and start teaching. Ok lah till then. I end with the latest pic of Sara taken on December 2014. She is 4 and she's so bubbly. And cantik! Love you sayang!!!

With love,

first day at school: after school

We picked her up around 12. Her face looks like she just cried. A little gloomy face i could tell. Mengadu kat ayah sambil nangis: "sara tak dapat main kat luar, tak dapat main masak2 pun". Laaa ingatkan tak suka school, rupanya sedih sbb takde mainan. Hehe such a cheeky girl. The aunty told me she did cry a little as they finished the doa after dhuha most probably when she noticed we weren't there. But after that she was fine. And another sobs masa nak balik when she saw everyone is hurrying to go out from school she might be afraid of being left out. So cute. Takpe la you will get used to it soon Sara, and i am sure you will be better tomorrow sbb bila dalam kereta when she was okey the story-telling started and she keeps on talking about her school what she did and what she ate and stuffs. And yes she looks happy she even said she wants to go to school again, tomorrow. Siap suruh mama cepat2 basuh uniform. Thats mama's n ayah's girl!

Ok till then. She's sleeping now and we'll see tmrw on 2nd day at school entry insha Allah. 

Jom kita tgk wajah Sara after school.

Its school day!!

Here we go. School it is. Sara woke up at 7:15 am, bathe, had breakfast and off we sent her to her new school. It was great. She didnt cry a bit even when we left. She behaves very well. She have got all the courages and i can tell she loves her new school and friends. She's so keen to going to school that she refused to wear her baju, insist on wearing the uniform. Fortunately she gets her uniform as soon as she registered and she wear it right away! Punya la excited kan. But she still as usual, malu2 but the good thing is she could cope. 
Ya Allah syukur sangat for making things easier for her, and for us. Alhamdulillah. I hope these will remain throughout days and weeks and months and years of her schooling period. Insha Allah Sara is a bright girl we have faith in you, young lady :)

Sara is going to school tmrw!!

Yeah it is. She's going to BBIM tmrw. 4.8.2014, a remarkable date for us. It is going to be her very first day at kindie. Insha Allah. Ya Allah honestly I still don't believe it my daughter is going to enter a new phase in her life; school and it is our new phase too, being the parents. It is a brand new experience i am having jitters inside me over the week. We intentionally took for a visit to the school to excite her, to constantly telling her that she is going to the school soon, very soon. 

A mixed feeling. The worries, excitement, overwhelmed, happy, everything's mixed up and its barely explained. *tap on my back*

Ya Allah pls pls pls i pray to you pls ease everything for our Sara Hana on her first day and days ahead at school. Grant her with all the courage, happiness, motivation, excitement in the world. I pray to you for her safety, and protection from any form of harm. amin ya rabbal'alamin.

I hope she will be fine.
I believe she will be fine.
I know she will be fine.
She will definitely have a great time. Surely verily.
Insha Allah.

And i hope i will be fine too.

Sara meets upin & ipin :)

We (mama & Sara) bumped into upin & ipin during outing at Aeon Mahkota Cheras yesterday. Well, Sara used to say she wanted to salam upin ipin but nah, upin ipin was right here in front of us but she chickened out and refused to stay *lol*. That's typically her btw ;P
