MCO Day 224

CMCO for Selangor has been extended until 9 November. Two more weeks. Cases are alarmingly high nowadays. Nilai - the place that we thought would be safe for us to go shopping is now placed under CMCO too. Well, not that we could go but the first place we would run to when CMCO is lifted. Seems like there is no running away from Covid-19.Pagi tadi beranikan diri keluar dengan anak comel. I dah set nak bawak dia buat allergy test dekat Poliklinik UKM di Seksyen 15. Her ketumbit has returned and has become frequent this couple of months. After much research, I found that perhaps there is a link between her eczema and the eye infections. In order to know what she's allergic to, she needs to take an allergy test. Yang ni blood test sahaja. Ada yang lagi comprehensive but we do this first. Hopefully we'll find out what exactly that has been bothering her since she was a baby. Insyaallah. Resultnya next week.The fantasy rom-com Tale of the Nine Tailed is now the favourite K-drama of…

MCO Day 217

Things look really scary nowadays. Number of Covid-19 cases are very high. MySejahtera app has been showing reported cases within 1km radius from our home constantly for the past 2 weeks. Tak sure rumah mana or siapa. There are rumours circulating that red zone areas might be placed under lockdown. Allah... minta dijauhkan. Ever since the PKPB started memang tak ke mana-mana sangat pun. Masalahnya suasana keliling macam tak berapa nak PKPB. Budak-budak dok merayap naik basikal ramai-ramai dengan selamba. Geram juga ni... Tak apa. Kita jaga diri sendiri. Insyaallah. Yang pasti, Hubbs sekarang work from home. Alhamdulillah, kurang satu perkara nak fikir setiap hari.Semalam birthday anak comel. Yang ke 19! Dah besau sangat dah anak I ni. Tapi rasa macam budak-budak lagi. Pagi semalam dia ada exam pagi. Last paper for the semester. Hubbs and I sempat ke Seksyen 4 belikan dia birthday cake sementara dia ambil exam.  Habis exam, turun dah ready pizza for lunch. Hubbs punyalah nak cover line …

The Day Before CMCO / PKPB

Covid-19 cases have skyrocketed lately. Besides Sabah and Kedah, Selangor is heavily affected as well. The numbers might not be as high as the other 2 states, but the scattered cases are worrisome. It was announced yesterday that the whole of Selangor will be placed under PKPB starting after mid-night today. Honestly, never saw this coming. But then, I guess it's the only way since people are damn too selfish these days. Especially after the Sabah election. No words can describe how disappointed the general public is seeing the Covid-19 cases go up each day. And half of the cases are contributed to the election. Yang paling menyakitkan hati is the cases originated from politicians and the likes who came back from Sabah and have no sense of responsibility to quarantine themselves. Entahlah... penatlah!Anyway... a lot has happened these past 2 weeks. Yup, a very long time of not updating. Hubbs celebrated his birthday on the 30th last month. It was a working day. Since nak keluar di…

MCO Day 195

Oh no... Covid-19 cases have gone up again. Masalahnya dah merebak ke banyak negeri di Semenanjung. Hari ni saja Selangor ada 11 new cases. Memang tak keluar rumah lah macam ni. Haisshhh... baru plan nak beli groceries... Please be extra careful.Semalam sempat berjumpa dengan rakan-rakan sebaya. Dah masuk umur sama dengan dia orang barulah boleh dipanggil "rakan sebaya". Kalau tak mati-mati tak nak mengaku! Oleh kerana akak korang ni selalu jadi committee reunion lah, surprise birthday lah, maka sebarang usaha untuk plan birthday surprise untuk I tidak mungkin akan berjaya 😁. So, kawan-kawan baik I ni organise picnic potluck. Senang cerita. Lokasi - Taman Tasik Shah Alam. Alhamdulillah semalam cuaca sangat baik walaupun semalamnya hujan seharian. Mas awal-awal dah bagitau - kalau hujan, picnic Alam Impian kat rumah dia! Yang hadir. Seperti biasa, Shake sampai lambat. Ada penambahan kali ni, Syiqot datang. Food mewah atas saprah tu - shepard's pie, spaghetti olio, agar-ag…

MCO Day 189

Let's see... it was my birthday last Sunday. My 49th! Oh my, I am so tua already. Syukur Alhamdulillah masih dipanjangkan umur. Dah tua-tua ni ada anak-anak sedara yang baik hati celebrate birthday. Masyaallah... semoga mereka semua murah rezeki dan dibawah lindungan Allah setiap masa. Izzat dan Ekin jemput datang rumah baru. Dah lama teringin nak pergi sebab dengar cerita ada court badminton bagai. Waahhh... memang best. Rasa nak je bawak raket badminton dan bat pingpong pergi sana tiap-tiap hujung minggu! Red velvet cake hasil carian Izzul dan Ati. Every year I would wonder. There are 365 days in a year. Dah kenapa nak birthdate sama? 😄 Cantik deko rumah Izzat dan Ekin ni. Masa ni semua kekenyangan makan nasi tomato, lasagna dan birthday cake!
Terima kasih semua!
I finished making the batik sling bag on Saturday. Selesai saja... Alhamdulillah... Hilang terus stress! Dapat siapkan dengan jayanya. Pagi tadi settle post. The lady who ordered was so happy and thanked me sebab layan perm…

MCO Day 182

Last Sunday was my arwah mother's birthday. And the day she was buried. It's been one year already. I do miss her. Terribly at times. One thing about me is that my parents always come into my dreams. Not the kind of dreams that people say have meaning or something like that. They are just there in my dreams. Participating in my dreams. Like a few days ago I dreamed of scrutinizing something and my father was beside me making some comments. That kind of dream. No message whatsoever. But I will wake up with a smile. It always feels like meeting again after a long, long time. Since on Sunday, my Abang Ben was back, I planned a small makan-makan with Izzul. Alhamdulillah... Ini kerja Izzul dan Atie 😍. Lots of September babies in the family. Izzat was on the 10th while my Abang Ben on 14th. Yang kecik tu memang kerja dia tiup lilin! Kali ni ice cream cake... Tengah "shopping" baju dan skirt! I've been busy with sewing projects these few days. Hari ni take a break lepas se…

MCO Day 173

My second attempt at making that double zip wristlet also failed. Haisshhh... it's not really the technique. It's the materials used. Tak ikut arahan dan specification. Kali ni hampir jadi. Tinggal stitch that last round to bind the bag together. Tapi bulky sangat. My sewing machine refused to cooperate. Instead of using the suggested interfacing, I guna yang tebal sikit. Memang tak lepas lah. Dah nak siap dah! Kalau dapat sew around this memang dah jadi. Apakan daya. Campak masuk tong sampah akhirnya. Malas nak salvage.
So I told that nice lady that I couldn't make the wristlet she wanted. But if she still wants me to make her a wristlet like the old one but according to the size she wanted, I'm more than willing. She said yes and picked the fabric she liked. I finished making the bag just now but it's a test bag because it's been so, so long since I made a bag. Seperti biasa, terlebih pandai, I missed one layer of inner fabric. Tapi memang I buat ni untuk warm …
