How do you feel being away from the kids?

Yay, my blog finally has a new face (read:theme). A motivation to keep me blogging more frequently, I suppose? ❤

So many things to write.

But today I will write abt my recent outstation.
But not focusing on the 'outstation'.

I have never been away from my kids. Oh, once before when Adib is 6 m.old. An overnight outstation to KL and that was it. So nak dijadikan cerita I had to attend another program in Png for 3 days from 28-30 Mar. Didn't see it coming. Turned out the date was after the school holiday break. So sempat la melayan the kids holiday dulu puas-puas.

Nothing much about the program. My attention was not 100% there though despite the course is so not related to me. I have too many concerns revolving in my mind at the moment especially that Sara has to school and I 'know' her, and Adib needed me when he wanted to sleep because he's still bf-ing, etc etc. So many things.

It feels bad to leave behind your "motherhood" duties to be carried out by others back at home. We were thankful for the help from my mom. Literally, my kids are overly attached to me. Pegi kedai pun I angkut semua tau haha. So knowing them, I admit it's not easy to take care of the 2 kids, with one missing her mom so badly she's easily burst into tears by just looking at her mom's video and messages, and the other one, how can I say abt him. Even tough somehow he still doesn't understand what was going on, but I believe he keeps on wondering "mana mama?", and day by day the answer that he gets is "mama work". And when he heard my voice through calls or video call, he will cry and refused to hung up. So sad. He refused to sleep, tido pun lambat, plus he woke up few times at night. Pastu merengek. And the first day he woke up pretty early which is around 5a.m. Hmm. Unlike kakak, bila mama takde dia boleh pula tido awal. Tapi tido dalam kesedihan. And she managed to wake up early and off to school pun very early. Most of the day she will reached school around 7.15. Hehe. Hebat Sara! Tapi kecundang jua di hari kedua due to fever.
And oh did I mentioned I wrote notes for Sara and leave it to MM to put it in her bags each day? It's another soft side of our little girl. She loves surprises. She values small things. So I made an attempt to write a note for her, to encourage her and sometimes the notes functioned as reminder for her; to suruh drink more water, do work faster etc. And it works! Cuma nya mama penat la oih tiap-tiap hari kena buat notes, 2 times per day pulak tu.

And those 3 freaking days is the most longest period in my life.
I cried almost every night ;(
But managed to watch 2 telemovies- online (Cinta Cupid and Kekasih Elektrik) to kill the time. Hehe.

On Thursday, it was around 4:30 pm when everything was settled and  I drove home.
Can't wait to hug my kids.

So that's the feeling of being away from your family, esp your kids. If you missed them, they surely missed you more. Or so I suppose, haha. Yes, it hurts. But what can we do? What power do we have? Selagi kita tertakluk kepada "Saya.yang.menurut.perintah" hadap je selagi mampu. Work demands. *sigh*
Terpaksa. Tapi kalau tahun ni dapat kursus di "J" lagi opcos I reject! Haha. Oopps!

Now I understand the feeling.
And I will not take my children for granted. Never!
I will cherish every moments I have with my kids, as long as I could.... as long as I live.

I am truly respect and salute those who is in long distance relationship, whom struggling with raising their kids alone and  whom far from their kids.

So to answer the question ↑,
No, I can't.

Pernah juga terfikir, nak pergi honeymoon or cuti with the hubs (or friends) without your kids around. Macam best je kan. Ya la some said what? To claim our 'me time' and whatnot. Mampu ke? Nah. Emotionally I am not. Mungkin boleh but for the time being, it's not my preference. I don't have the courage to chill myself when my kids are not with me. Over kan? This might sound poyo to certain people, but my current blessing yang I mmg bersyukur sangat2 skrg ni is - anak-anak and hubs sentiasa ada depan mata. Walau penat macam mana pun, even though sometimes I almost feel suffocated and I wish I can clone myself, Alhamdulillah. I couldn't be happier.

Sara, Adib, (anak2 mama)
You are my precious.
You are my happiness.

Long overdue post

Blog dah lawa tapi tak update jugak. I don't know what I have been busy with. I think the drive is just not there. Haha.

But I think blogging is still relevant, right. Because I still see people updating their blogs. So you've gotta blog walking read theirs.

Oklah nak update about Adib's 2nd birthday bash and our recent trip to Bukit Tinggi. Rasa rugi pulak kalau tak update. I should keep those memories for us reminisce later on.

1. We celebrated Adib's birthday few days after his exact birth date in Kedah. The little tyke turned 2 on 28th April 2017. I know I know. I still remember when he was still a tiny baby. Now he's almost a toddler.
So I ordered balloons from FB (ni jenuh Google), bought a cake and off we go to Nando's Aman Central to celebrate with our dear little family and my parents. Everything was impromptu, except the balloon lah. It was just a simple one. But Sara and Adib were so happy. Obviously Sara yang paling excited kan. Knowing her, she lov…

Sara & Adib @Cyberview Resort & Spa

And yes we are here! For 2 nights. Pre-book on hotel's website for Superior Chalet but been told during the check-in that Superior chalet is not available at the moment so guess what, our room has been upgraded to Executive Deluxe for no extra charge. How cool was that! Yeah I know I know. Hehe. The room is huge and super nice and it has a four-poster bed. Super like. And our chalet is only few steps away from the pool. Rezeki Adib n Sara. Its Adib's first outing and first hotel stays.
Anyway I am so gonna enjoy our stay here in Cyberview. Had bfast earlier at Verandah Restaurant and strolling around the resort and surveying the pool area. Sara had her 1st round of swimming with MM while I bathed Adib in our room. Later will go to IOI putrajaya for lunch. 
For now, lets cherish the moment and enjoy the photos while i'm joining the kids and hubsy for a nap. Later.
Hope you guys have a splendid school break too. 











Ordinary Spa at Penjara Wanita Kajang

Ordinary ke? Tak lah ordinary sangat. It is just a typical Balinese concept Spa. But what makes it ordinary is the location and the Spa therapist itself. It is the Penjara Wanita Kajang Spa I was mentioning about :)

Went to these spa last week because I need a back massage so badly. Luckily I have an old friend working at Penjara Wanita Kajang as warden. I did asked her the procedure and such. She offered to make a reservation for me instead. Easy peasy :). So, I just went there and waited for her to bring me to the spa.

I did not take photo at the spa (we are allowed to take pictures but I forgot to do so. Excited sangat). It is a beautiful place and the therapists were very nice to us. I had a splendid time and enjoyed the 1 hour full body massage of mine.My therapist was a 30-yrs-old Sulawesi-an and she's also a mother to a 6-yrs-old daughter. 

The price is way too cheaper compared to the common spa. I paid RM40 for full body massage (traditional massage) and the rest are all b…
