My First Jubah

Weehooo!

It took me a week, but I finally completed my first jubah. With Spotlight having a massive sale, I spent $13 on a 3 meter cotton fabric and $1 on the ribbon. If the finished work was a disaster, I wouldn't feel too bad about chucking it in the bin. But it turned out alright...

I traced my favourite jubah, the one Mak bought from Mecca, and basically just copy-pasted the design and size. Added the zipper for BFing.


Had Kimi took a photo of me in our lawn. The little man had proven useful as I do not have to use a timer. Pssttt... Trying out my Gucci sunnies while I'm at it...


Am a horrible model - but hey, since no one in their right mind is going to hire me, I might as well hire myself [^_^]'

Marble Cake - Rainbow Version

I know what all the healthy-eating-mommies are thinking: Look at all those colours! It's bad, bad, bad!


I must agree but I got the food colourings for free, hand-me-downs from fellow Malaysians. Might as well put them to good use.


I followed the recipe from my favourite site: www.taste.com and was actually impressed with myself for trying a recipe with a difficulty level of "Capable Cooks". I usually go for the "Easy"s.


Hasben and Kimi loved it and this means a lot. As a cook, I admit that I am well below par. I ALWAYS make something that I THOUGHT was superb, only to be met by disappointed eaters.

"I made something special today~ Hurry up everyone, come and grab your mushroom soup/frozen strawberry yogurt/buah melaka/apam balik/mac and cheese/mash potato~ Confirm yummy!" Hasben would shut his eyes and wiggle his shoulders while Kimi would yell and cry "Not tasty!!!"

So in the end, I alone had to finish up the "syok sendiri food". How annoying!

I Really Need a Shower

I really really do... But it is not easy. Something as basic as cleaning oneself is now a luxury to have. Like for instance, yesterday, I just had it with smelling like a dude from a construction site...

Baby was cranky and sleepy and screaming. So the top priority was to bounce him to sleep. Yesss! Success! But I barely made it to the bathroom door...

"Ibu, Kimi hungry, pancake pleaseeeee~~~~" said the toddler. Before he starts making more noise, which will lead to screaming baby, I made a super fast (horrid looking) pancake, served with choco topping, just in time for baby to wake up and cry his lungs out. So again, I bounced baby to sleep. Tip toed into the bathroom, brushed my teeth...

"Ibu....~~~ water!!!" The decibel (dB) was just right to wake baby up as I can hear him crying through the door. Filled bottle with water, bounced baby to sleep, ran into the shower...

Bliss... 3 seconds later, could it be possible? "Uwaaa uwaaaa" was drowned by the drizzling sound of the shower. So I sped up the bathing process and nearly flew right out of the bathroom.

Baby still unsettled until he drank (milk) himself to sleep:


Hmm... At least I smell better than before. Can't complain. Now let's imagine how life would be with 3 kiddos...
