Officially a Full Time Working Mum Or Not?


The Mummy

Since adulthood, whenever you catch up with long-time-no-see friends or relatives, one of the questions they confirm will ask is so what are you doing now? As in where are you working? For the past couple of years, my answer has always been “Oh I work for myself, you know… digital and social media kinda […]

The Girl Who Doesn’t Smile Turns Five


The Baby

My first born turns 5 today! The quiet princess who is otherwise known as “the girl who doesn’t smile”, a title given to her by other kids. It’s not true that she doesn’t smile, she just doesn’t smile all the time! Ayra since young has been the shy girl who’s afraid to express herself when with […]

Things My Three Year Old Is Teaching Me


The Baby No. 2

Zara officially turns three today. Flashback to the day she was planned to come into this world (few weeks before she was due because of placenta previa) – the c-section procedure where you can hear and feel everything happening in the bright and cold operation room, that first cry of joy, the first touch with […]

Ayra The Funtastic Four


Featured, The Baby

Everyday I look at you, with 100% focus, I see a different you. You have grown so so much and I am asking myself where has my little Ayra gone. Your words, your actions, the way you scream and cry, the way you interact with your toys bringing them to life and how you can […]

Zara The Terrific Two


Featured, The Baby No. 2

That day when I walked out from the kitchen with your huge rainbow cake, that smile on your face lighted from within you, that precious moment I wished I had captured it on video or photo. That sweet innocent delighted smile witnessed by myself and your grandma, I wish I will never ever forget. Now […]

Terrible Two Even More Terrible with Number Two


The Baby No. 2

Oh boy! I don’t know where or how to begin recording this core memory of ours with our number two. With Zara turning two next month, we are already feeling the strain and exhaustion from guiding her to learn to understand herself, expressing herself, controlling her emotions and knowing what’s right and wrong, what’s acceptable […]

Oh so cute! Where did she get the perms?


The Baby

A question I get ALL the time when Ayra was between 9 to 20 months young. Whenever we bring her out and some aunties will comment how cute her curls are and asked where we brought her for the perm. My eyes were rolled too many times.  When it was long enough, we had her […]

Ayra is THREE! Her first celebration at Playgroup


The Baby

Three years ago, this little baby popped out of me after more than 20 hours of wait. And now she’s 3! Growing up to become a very fine lady, ever so shy and gentle (except times when she’s lacking in sleep). Her first celebration this year was with her sister’s 1st birthday gathering at home […]

Zara is One!


The Baby No. 2

I love you more than you know. I miss you so much everyday. I missed more than half of your first growing up years. I am going to make up for it from now forward. We are going to spend more time together. I promise. See how much you have grown in your first year!

With her fast forward development (according to the Kid’s health booklet development progress), she will be running around […]

Baby Zara from 1 to 5 months


The Baby No. 2

Our second precious girl has grown so much over 5 months, from a tiny baby who grew almost double in size from birth in 3 months. She can hardly fit into her elder sister’s clothes from the 6 to 12 months range! She needs lose pants and t-shirts as Zara has got chunky arms and […]

First full movie at the Cinema!


Let's Go Out!, The Baby

Today Ayra watched and enjoyed her 1st movie in the cinema! Before that I was trying hard to get her to have a nap before we head out but this girl is too stubborn. Ended up with no nap and we were in GV to catch Despicable Me 2 (otherwise known as “Nana” by the […]

Vaccination Completed!


All Posts, The Baby

Yesterday Ayra had her final two doses of vaccination at the polyclinic. This itself I consider a milestone to remember. I went through all the jabs with her at the polyclinic and I’ve to say that she is one brave girl. Comparing her with other babies I witnessed at the clinic, she didn’t cry as […]
