Anak Comel is 17 and 1 Day Old Today

Our daughter turned 17 yesterday. Mixed emotions. She's growing up so fast πŸ˜“. My thoughts yesterday - next year no more buying school uniforms, shoes and books. No more buying stationery, pencil cases and school bags... She's finishing her secondary school. She's ending her 13 years of schooling - 2 years of pre-school, 6 years of primary and 5 years of secondary. Sebak juga... Rasa macam baru semalam we sent her on her first day of pre-school... where both of us, Hubbs and I, shed silent tears as she was led away by her teacher with her looking back at us with worried looks 😒.

Our little family already celebrated anak comel's birthday last week since she's attending the SPM seminar this whole weekend. Yesterday after her seminar at 5.30pm, she spent her birthday with her friends at Grato. Ok lah kan, next year entah ke mana kawan-kawan dia akan sambung belajar. Tak dapat jumpa macam tu dah.
I bought red velvet cake at our favourite bakery yesterday... Potong cak…

Past Days

My little family spent the weekend walking. Very long walks. At malls 😁. I consider the walks as exercise because they added up to more than 10,000 steps per day. Bukan apa, anak comel's birthday is coming up next Friday, but then she'll be attending this SPM camp from Friday till Sunday at school. So, there won't be a celebration for her. That's why we spent the weekend getting her birthday present and just chilling out.

Yesterday we went to MyTown and spent almost the whole day there! I got her to pick her own stuff at Bath & Body Works. She then bought a pair of jeans using her own money. Punyalah persistent tak nak guna allocation Abah dia sebab dia nak something else which obviously costs more πŸ˜….
As usual naik MRT. Mata sedikit bengkak sebab awal lagi!
Hari ni ke IOI City Mall pulak untuk survey the present she wanted her Abah to get her. Then a short stop at Alamanda sebab benda tu tak jumpa pulak di IOI City Mall. Bila dah decide on the item, we had coffee…

Packed Day

Semalam hari yang sangat packed, especially for anak comel. The day started early and our activities ended at almost midnight. Sebab semalam dah keluar dan buat macam-macam, hari ni melepek saja di rumah πŸ˜….

Jam 7 pagi dah keluar rumah. Hantar anak comel ke sekolah dulu untuk graduation day dia. Tahun ni buat di sekolah saja. Parents boleh datang tapi anak comel tak bagi! Oklah, dia nak spend time dengan kawan-kawan dia. Apparently tak ramai pun parents yang datang.
Ini saja gambar yang sempat ambil di rumah sebab kelam-kabut dah lambat! Very nice baju kurung we bought at Bangi Gateway. Harga pun sangat below expectation 😊. With her classmates. Semoga anak-anak ni semua akan dapat keputusan cemerlang untuk SPM nanti InsyaAllah. Doakan ya.
Lepas drop off anak comel, Hubbs and I rushed to KLIA untuk hantar our nephew Abang Hakeem pulak. Last month was his sister Nadheerah, dia pulak ke Southampton, UK. Alhamdulillah sempat jumpa dalam setengah jam sebelum dia boarding. Hakeem ni memang…

Welcome October

It's October. This means the year is coming to the end. I always love the last few months of the year. It just feels a little bit festive and relaxed. But perhaps not so much this year though as anak comel is going to sit for her SPM next month. Lately she stays back at school till 5pm. Sometimes for extra classes, sometimes for her study group. Honestly, it feels really lonely without her around. Sigh... Imagine next year... πŸ˜”

Anyway... I continued my 4th month with CBF. Starting from October, our "ex-classmate" Aqish has become our coach. Kelasss kan? 3 months ago we started our journey together by enrolling in CBF, now she is a certified trainer. Dia memang sangat committed. So far, even though tak se"brutal" Coach Bajie, her classes are OK. First class hari tu dia nervous sikit, semalam dah OK. Tapi a wee bit too lenient. Next week nak request brutal sikitπŸ˜….
Class masih 4 orang. Ada sorang baru join. I like the class small actually. Focused. Minggu lepas …

Happy 47th Hubbs

It's Hubb's birthday today. The day started not so good as he was down with headache and bit of high BP. So we didn't jog today as planned. Must be the satay kambing and daging he had two nights in a row!

We skipped breakfast and headed out for an early lunch, with a stop at the clinic in BBBangi. While Hubbs was in there, anak comel and I went to a bakery nearby to get Hubbs a surprise birthday cake. It was the bakery at Seksyen 4 Tambahan which we ordered anak comel's 6th birthday cake years and years ago. Bakery tu memang agak famous especially that the cakes there are mostly frosted with fresh cream. Tapi lama sangat, sangat tak pergi bakery ni.
Strawberry cake with fresh cream frosting πŸ˜‹. Down the memory lane - the same cake we ordered for anak comel last time. Birthday lunch at Mohd Chan. Amboi... dah dapat ubat, makan tak hengat! Anyway, Happy Birthday dear Hubbs 😘. One of the few places where anak comel makan banyak!
Walaupun dah 2 hari tak jogging, berjaya m…

This Week

Minggu ni agak occupied dalam usaha nak settlekan issue dengan office rental tu. Memang dugaan yang agak besar. Pening duduk tengah-tengah ni. Come to think of it, that's what I always have to do - jadi orang tengah πŸ˜…! Setiap hari doa semoga Allah permudahkan. Alhamdulillah ada sorang staff kat sana yang sangat, sangat membantu. InsyaAllah the issue will be solved soon. Hari ni settlekan close account Unifi. Kena dulukan duit sendiri. Lepas ni nak claim. Entahlah akan dapat atau tidak, dan if ada rezeki nak dapat entah bila. Redha sajalah. Kalau orang tu tak bayar, maknanya bukan rezeki. Semoga Allah berikan yang lebih baik. Nowadays I don't fret over such things anymore.

To keep my mind off the problem, I turn to workouts πŸ’ͺ. Hari Selasa gigih pergi jogging dulu 5K then pergi CBF class. You know what happened? Sehari tergolek. Penat gila! Not going to do that again! I jenis yang kalau penat, I can't sleep. Adrenaline rush kot. So, melepek je walaupun mengantuk dan penat. …

Express Birthday Cake

Since Ies plan nak ke rumah Mas petang semalam, I pun sibuk nak tumpang. Bukan apa, memang nak sangat deliver tote bags tu. Nak jumpa weekdays sekarang dah payah sikit sebab masing-masing anak nak exam. Lepas lunch terus Hubbs hantar ke TBS. Jumpa Ies dan Jay di Station LRT Bandar Tun Razak dan lepas tu ke Alam Impian. 
Sampai saja rumah Mas, terus ke dapur. Ada surprise rupanya 😍. Bila tau I jadi pergi rumah dia, kelam-kabut dia buat carrot cake. Suam-suam lagi cakenya! Cake suam lagi tak boleh letak frosting cream cheese 😁. Muka tak puas hati. Tak nak potong cake sebab tak da cream! Siap kena marah dengan Jay - cepatlah Niza aku nak makan kek ni! Tak mo, nak cream jugak! Ok la, ok la, Mas letak frosting kat 4 penjuru! Barulah boleh potong πŸ˜†. Inilah kawan-kawan pengubat jiwa 😍
Lama juga kat rumah Mas. Sampai "tuan tanah" balik. Macam-macam cerita sempat keluar. Rasanya tak habis lagi tu! Once in a while you need to meet up with your good friends. Especially I yang for t…

Happy 47 Years & 1 Day

Happy 47 Years and 1 Day birthday! That was the wish I got from an old friend today 😁. Yup, it was my born day yesterday. And I read somewhere, apparently, the reformasi movement was officially started on 20 September. Good date huh!

Anyway... it was a nice day, albeit I had to go on this errand to settle that tenant's problem😑. I started with CBF class in the morning. Makin hari makin menyeksakan kelas CBF ni! Semalam asyik planks. Macam-macam jenis planks. Sampai terjelepuk masing-masing kat tepi dinding πŸ˜…. But then, menyumpah masa workout saja. Dah habis workout memang rasa best gila. Semua happy-happy wish coach - OK Coach, TQ, jumpa minggu depan!
Managed to get the 4th badge. 3rd badge tak dapat.
Sebenarnya, after that the day was just like any other day. Except that at home I got numerous wishes, hugs and kisses from anak comel and Hubbs throughout the day 😘. It was middle of the week, trial SPM month, so any celebration is postponed.  Tapi lunch tadi melayan budak yang …

Feeling Better

I'm feeling much better today. Tetap berdoa semoga urusan dipermudahkan. Tapi hati manusia ni lain. Kita ni elakkan sangat buat benda yang Allah murka, tapi ada orang rasa benda tu biasa saja. Tak apalah. Redha. Serah pada Allah. Dengan semangat waja, hari ni awal pagi dah keluar jogging. Pusing retention pond saja. Agak ramai kat sana pagi tadi. Bagus sebenarnya jogging kat situ. Tak ada asap kenderaan.
This is worthy to be noted. 46mins today! Waaahhh... akak suka, akak suka 😎. And I'm back on track! Ceeewahh! As usual, lepas bakar lemak kita ganti dengan lemak baru πŸ‘.
I'm half way through with the tote bag. Nampak macam OK.  Experiment menjadi πŸ’ͺ.
Dan sambil-sambil buat tote bag, dapat pulak idea nak buat skirt for my workouts. Selalu pergi Sports Direct memang belek-belek tennis skirt tapi harga macam mahal lah pulak. Ingat nak pakai masa pergi kelas untuk tutup sikit my Reebok workout pants. Lagi dua yang I ada memang I beli yang skirt pants tu. Just that one. Palin…

Selamat Hari Malaysia

Tomorrow is Hari Malaysia. So, Monday is a holiday. Bulan ni memang bulan cuti. Hubbs switched his leave. He worked on Wednesday and took the rest of the week off. Itulah sebab steps challenge I dah jauh ketinggalan!

I also missed the 100k badge. These few days hati tak berapa best sebab problem dengan office tenancy tu. Nak pergi jogging pun malas. After a few sleepless nights, today I finally made peace with myself. Lepas buat solat taubat, I'm leaving everything to Allah swt. Perancangan DIA tentunya lebih baik. Kalau I susah sekarang, Insyaallah kesenangan akan datang nanti. Susah disebabkan oleh orang lain itu namanya dianiaya. Dan doa orang yang dianiaya Insyaallah makbul.

Anyway, jogging petang tadi berjaya buat hati rasa OK sikit 😎  
Alhamdulillah these few days rezeki murah. Walaupun belum pick up barang dia, I got payment for the palazzo and pajamas from Nazri. Macam tau-tau je I tengah pokai 😁. I also finished making the lunch bag. Pun dah dapat payment tadi. Tuesday …
