Iftar Jamaei

Assalamualaikum & Ramadhan kareem!

Just a short update before my bed time. Fuhh! Last update was on the 15th day of Ramadhan & today, there's a week left before Eid. Gelabah pulak rasa nak Raya ini. Adakah kerana tahun ini giliran beraya di kampung A.H?

So far, I had had only 2 iftar out. One with the Firm clan at Sri Chengmai Restaurant on 22/06/2016 & the 2nd one was with my friend, Ira at Nando's, AEON Mall this evening. Sebagai peminat tegar nasi, haruslah memilih restautant yang menghidangkan nasi kerana apalah ertinya berbuka puasa tanpa makanan ruji itu bukan?

The tomyam was the bomb! And also the daging phed phai!

This was definitely not we had for iftar. Ni kira moreh ala kadar. Lols!

Can't remember the last time I went to Nando's but mannn, that extra hot peri-peri!

Sejak sudah berumahtangga 1 tahun 4 bulan yang lepas, macam kurang sikit aktiviti berbuka di luar bersama-sama rakan-rakan. Is this what we call as 'sindrom mak-mak' although I haven't had the rizq to become a mak yet? (InsyaAllah one day!) You know, when you find comfort to break your fast with your loved ones at home, taking your own sweet time ratah ayam masak pedas & have glasses of water pahtu tersadai di atas kerusi like a Muslimah version of whale?

Puasa Day 15

Assalamualaikum & ramadhan kareem day 15!

How's puasa so far? Alhamdulillah, so far sis puasa penuh lagi. Lols! Oh, I haven't had any final Raya theme yet! Should I be worried now since when it comes to buying baju Raya, I'm quite a choosy one. Nak yang murah but cantik #cheapskate #menyatutseruanRosmah. I think paying RM199 for a pair of baju kurung is quite ridiculous unless the material is A+ punya quality. Will be paying Jalan Tar a visit this Friday dengan misi membeli baju raya RM50 per pair. Adakah sis mampu?

Akhir kalam, terimalah gambar wefie kami berdua sempena bulan Ramadhan yang mulia ini

A.H & his beloved kopiah hijau which he's been keeping it since foreverr!. The kopiah has probably been to more countries than I did. Ishkk! Tak menahan sis nengoknya

Selamat berpuasa everyone! May Allah swt accept our good deeds, ibadah & sadaqah. InsyaAllah!

Ramadhan Kareem Day 9

Assalamualaikum & ramadhan kareem day 9!

Our Firm's working hours during Ramadhan
We love our Boss for being so generous & memahami golongan wanita yang bekerjaya who need to be home early. Thank you Encik D!

 09/06/2016. YamYam with her favourite Papa Su
A.H took a 3-day leave & went back to his hometown to puasa with his Family. Due to work commitment (I'm still on the probation period at the Firm, hence don't think it's appropriate to take leave yet), I didn't tag along & oh manggg, sunyinya puasa without him. The photos above were taken on the Thursday morning before he left for KL

Dari sudut pandangan kasut sebelah kanan sis. Lols! Looking so serious whilst driving home from work akibat panggilan tilam yang maha kuat

While others were having Iftar, my 7 month-old niece, Maryam had to sit on her rocker & watch nursery rhymes on Youtube like a Lady Boss. Lols! Just look at that cute innocent face! Haih! Geramlah YamYam ni!

Papa Su being a professional bibik to Abam Umar & YamYam. Lols! 

 13/06/2016. AEON Mall Kota Bharu
Love the concept & decor. Bak kata A.H, "Cantik ni kalau buat kat rumah". That guy's imagination, kemainn. Fuhh!

13/06/2016. Char Kuew Tiau Timur, Kubang Kerian
A.H had a dream a few days ago about char kuew tiau (Lols! Random gile mimpi pasal food) which eventually led to eating at this one kedai near our house yang char kuew tiau dia sedappp! Pahtu, ada tea beng madu pulak tu. According to him, the best char kuew tiau that he ever tasted was from this one cafe in Auckland. Nasib baik Husband kite ni bukan yang jenis yang mengidam terukkan? Don't worry guys, he isn't pregnant :P

Here are some of A.H & yours trully's fun facts about Ramadhan. Wahh, retis pun bukan semua ada peluang masuk majalah Mangga dengan heading sebegini tahu? Tajuk fun facts pulak tu. Huh!
  • This is the 2nd time A.H & yours truly celebrating Ramadhan together after the first one in July last year. Alhamdulillah
  • A.H doesn't eat nasik for Sahur. He only has Gardenia bread yang RM0.80 sebungkus tu + dates + mineral water then off he goes back to sleep. While yours truly usually have cereal + fresh milk or warm milo + Jacob's weetameal crackers. Kalau makan nasik pun, kena make sure ade sambal yang kaw-kaw pedasnya. As for the Parents, wajib nasik
  •  We don't like to go to bazar ramadhonnn. I only singgah bazar ramadhan or gerai-gerai on my way home only if I had to buy something. Tu pun baru sekali
  • We haven't decided on the Raya theme colour. Thinking of pale yellow or pale pink + white
  • Dah nama pun belum decide on theme colour, baju Raya pun haruslah belum ada
  • We'll be celebrating Raya at A.H's paternal kampung this year yakniiiiiiii... Pantai Tanjung Puteri, Melaka! Alamak, Melaka accent kite belum benau-benau polished ni. The last time I went there, I had some difficulties to understand what the makcik-makcik were talking about. Stress benau kite (couldn't think of another perkataan Melaka other than benau. Nampak tak betapa teruk benau penguasaan bahasau Melaka kite?)
Malah doh ehh nak sambung. To be continued whenever I'm rajin. Lols! I'm actually waiting for A.H who had a locum slot tonight. Lepas ni baru nak terawikh together. Ya, at 10.48 pm pun masih belum terawikh & people keep wondering why I've eye bags T_T

Ramadhan kareem once again, everyone! Prophet Muhammad saw said, "The dua of the fasting person is answered" (Sahih al-Bukhari)

A Cheap DIY Wall Decor Project

Assalamualaikum & hallo! Ramadhan kareem day 5!

My room at the Firm I'm working at now is definitely bigger than the one I had at the previous Firm. I always wanted my own room with a big window glass where I can get enough supply of sunshine/sunlight & I can see the clear blue sky. Oh, and also with calming view!

As always, Allah swt ArRahman ArRahim has always been so generous & He has answered my duas. Albeit without no sight of big trees except the home landscape rumah Dato' across the road depan office still, this is way better than being stuck in a narrow room without no view kan? Alhamdulillah. I love the natural sunlight so much that I purposely don't switch on the light in my room. I mean who needs the bulb light when I can get to enjoy the natural light foc like this


And as usual, I'll constantly keep changing the arrangement of things around me, be it the arrangement of the furniture in the bedroom or the bendo-bendo cerotek aka the decor on my table at the office. Nak buat major furniture arrangement at the office macam melampau sangat kan dah la separated dengan bilik boss by a glass window jah kehkehkeh but sis buat la sedaya yang termampu.

12/04/2016. Day 7 at the new Firm. 


If you haven't noticed, the wall is yellow & grey painted. Hence, the reason why I've been trying to be minimal as possible with the decor sebab this is yellow dude. Yellow + white = yes, but yellow + pink = non non!

Anyhow, after about 2 months & a half, I think I can't stand any longer seeing the wall is left untouched & undecorated. Ingat nak bawak Ikea wall mirror yang kerawang-kerawang tu that I have one at home but macam over sangat kan tetibe nak drill dinding office bagai. 

So, I opted for this cheap DIY wall decor project which involved:
  • A4 paper
  • Printable images downloaded from chicfetti
  • Black sellotape
  • Scissors
  • And a bit of creativity + passion. Gitteww!


09/06/2015. The incomplete cheap DIY wall decor project

A bit senget la sellotape tu & kertas pun dah kerenyuk-kerenyuk here & there hmmmmm but senget & kerenyuk-kerenyuk are a kind of art alright? It's nothing much pun actually but ok lah daripada tak ada. Been planning to add another one with ALLAH MUHAMMAD or BISMILLAH or AYATUL KURSI but I haven't found the nicest downloadable & free one(s) online

Sekian. Ramadhan kareem once again & may Allah swt accept our deeds & ibadah. Amin ya rabbal alamin
