Ju Zie Stroller Bag~

Sunshine Theme Stroller Bag By Me!

Date: 24-25 June 2011

Yes... It's the weekendsss!! Time to express my creativity - my Jimmy Choo-y! I was super excited to start my project to design and sew my baby's stroller cover. The Quinny Zapp Xtra must be seperated into 2 units upon folding - the frame and the seat. Since the stroller is quite expensive, I must take special care to ensure it will last until my 10th baby, haha! - Hence the idea to cover the seat with a proper bag.

Hasben and I went to Kamdar to purchase 3 meters of orange cloth. I borrowed Mak's sewing machine and sacrificed an unused coverall for the zip and yellow cloth. It took me 1.5 days for my creation to be completed.

Measurement process.

Sewing process.

The bag is too big for the stroller seat!! I felt so dissapointed and spent the rest of the night thinking about the counter measures.

Success!! Some alteration here and there... Walla! Not really cute, ugly even, but it serves its purpose... *smiles*

Me & Baby Stroller!

Crazy Parents-To-Be!

Date: 18 June 2011

Baby shopping can be fun and exciting... but not when you're an undecisive fella! The first thing I wanted to buy for the future Junior was a stroller - since I consider it the most expensive thing, I might as well get it over with.

Mak, me and Hasben went to Mid Valley and walked for nearly 8 hours for Stroller Mission! Waaay before I was even pregnant, I have already decided to buy Quinny brand since it seems travel-friendly... Something I'm still hoping to do even with kids around. Plus, from my eyes, mommies behind the Quinny wheels look a tad bit hotter... Must be because of the futuristic design, hihi.

"Hasben, I want this one!!"

However, Mak advised us to buy a cheaper one - no need to spoil the kid! Unknown to Mak, it is more on spoiling me *winks*. So we bought a McLaren stroller instead... heavier and bulkier... [-_-]"

But we bought this one instead...

That night, I felt like bursting (exageration here) everytime i see the stroller. My mind won't keep still - it starts to plan many things on how to get rid of the new stroller. Hasben knew I was going mad so we decided to go back to Mid Valley and exchange it for my ultimate stroller.

Date: 20 June 2011

It's me again salesgirls of Mothercare! This time we brought along Mama and Baby Rayyan, Hasben's nephew to model the Quinny stroller. I was smiling as if all my troubles have magically evaporated. I felt like a hot momma when I pushed Rayyan. God, I think I need help, haha! The salesgirl blamed Rayyan for the exchange.

Salesgirl: Naughty boy... you want the more expensive one..~

Hasben pushing Rayyan around!

Thank you Rayyan, Cik Ju owes you big, ahaks!

Book: Rachel's Holiday

Author: Marian Keyes


My Synopsis:
Ms Keyes writes about Rachel Welsh, a 27 year old Irish girl working in New York. She takes drugs - a lot - but in her mind, it's just recreational, like a social smoker. It is amusing to explore the mind of an addict, oblivious to her actual condition, and her denials. After being forced to enter a rehab center in Dublin, Rachel starts to see herself from the eyes of her loved ones. She initially thought she was going for a free holiday - jacuzzis, spas, rock stars, and was confused that the situation was far from fun and games.

Lesson Learnt:
I have learnt how an addict's mind works. They do not see the obvious, too consume with their addiction. Ms Keyes had successfully shared with her readers an addict's point of view with her spot on humor, making the story both informative and fun at the same time.

My Last Say:
Superb!! A must must read!

My First Popiah Kecik!

Weekend of Boredom!

Date: 11 June 2011

Life can be a bit slow especially in weekends at Paka. JulieZac is at her parents', my family is so far away in the west coast, and I have only Hasben to listen to my naggings. Just by looking at a durian pic posted by a friend in FB had caused me to crave for them... Yumminess!

Lucky Me! Expensive durian for sale in Paka!

Expensive but Yummy!

Anyway, back to the story of Little Popiah. After being offered a popiah simpul inti serunding by an offismate, I was determined to make my very first popiah kecik. Hasben helped out and we ended up with popiah inti sadin with really ugly shapes! Haha! It shows how boredom can spark 'creative' innovations!

My first try - I don't know how to simpul it!! The ugliest popiah in the world!

I successfully simpul-ed the popiah but it's huge!

To make life easy, I decided to just fold it.

Hasben's attempt - popiah gulung medium sized.

Giant triangle popiah - more like samosa - from Hasben!!

Our final design - little triangle popiah. Cute and yummy! SUCCESS!!

Me & Recycling!!

Save The World, One Plastic Bottle at a Time!

From my observation during my travels, developed countries are more rigorously adopting environmental friendly ways to avoid the usage of plastic bags and polystyrene, and perfoming other means to preserve a clean environment for their future generations. Malaysia, being a developing country, from my point of view, is still concentrating hard on city developments, education and sports.


However, we are getting there... With the implementation of no plastic bags on Saturdays, Malaysians are doing their part on making our country a cleaner place. Although some are still prefering to pay 20cents per plastic bag! - Oh, come on people!!


Our recycling system is also not very well established. However, instead of asking what the government can do for the environment, let's ask ourselves, what can WE do for the environment! I am sure others have done more but for me, my duty as a common housewife is to collect all plastic bottles and old newspapers and magazines.


Hasben's duty as a common househusband is to send these collected items to our local recycling center. It is not something fun and easy to do - Hasben complains that the recycling center is dirty and may puncture his car tyres.


But we are trying our best... and we get RM3 for our months of efforts! YEAYY!!


So guys, find out where the nearest recycling center is and start turning rubbish into Ringgits!! *Winks*

Precast U-Drain

Date of Construction: October - December 2010

A 10-year-old trapezoidal monsoon drain was found cracked and damaged.

Damaged trapezoidal drain


From visual observation, defect may be caused by:

  1. Differential soil settlement below and on the sides of the trapezoidal drain. This causes drain structure to move unevenly. Results in crack of drain.
  2. Through these cracks, water seepages occur. The flow loosens and erodes the soil that supports the drain. Settlement increases with time.
Recommendation: To reconstruct the monsoon drain using precast U-drain.
Advantages:
1. Precast – quality of work can be controlled.
2. Shorter duration of work completion - faster speed of construction.
3. U-shape of drain requires less working space thus will not affect trenches and piping.
4. Drain also acts as retaining wall – provides soil stability from lateral movements.
Disadvantages:
1. Higher cost by 3.6% as compared to in-situ re-construction of trapezoidal drain.
80% completion

100% Completion

Goodbye Atok Jani

Date: 28 May 2011
Time: 7.11 PM

"Kak.. Atok dah meninggal," Dad WhatsApp-ed me. We did see it coming as the whole family gathered at Hospital Sultanah Aminah, Johor Bahru for nearly 2 days after receiving a message from the hospital that my grandfather was in a coma and may never wake up. He suffered from diabetes and had a serious asthma problem since I can remember.

Atok and Nenek - The Youngsters.

A few weeks back, neighbours forced and sent him to the hospital as they noticed that his skin problem was getting serious. He was not the hospital-type-man, a common thing amongst old men I guess. They performed surgery on his skin and just 1 week ago, my Pak Su said that he was recovering and could not wait to leave the hospital.

2 Jan 2011 - The last time I visited Atok in Kulai.

I am not sure how he ended up in a coma, something about choking while eating and asthma thingy... But we all know, when Allah says it's your time, the reason is really insignificant.

Pak Su by Atok's resting place. 

Eid-Fitr 2006 - Mom hugging her dad.

7 Jan 2010 - Atok attending his first and apparently the only wedding of his many granchildren, me.

May Allah bless his soul, forgive his sins, and place him in heaven. Al-Fatihah.
