Reminiscing my final year of being twenties…

Thank you… thank you…

December 2011 is the most hectic birthday month ever, for me. I was excited when we’re about to enter 1st December, which I dunno exactly why. Perhaps becoz Papa had bought my birthday gift in advance. Hahaha…

N a week b4 my bday, our maid left n thus, leave us with a relatively stress situation. So we decided to have our break in KL n stay in any hotel that we want (note: since we got maid, if we were to go to KL n tag her along, we opted to stay in service apartment rather than hotel) n do anything that we want n we kept on saying to ourselves that we can survive. Yupps, we were pretty much in a state of denial. Hahahaha!

The tired abang

We went everywhere. We shopped, had good dine-out and had my pre-bday treat!!! Wink2~~

Pre-Bday treat :)

n the kids had their space to laze around :)

N another hectic birthday week after that as Wan, Mak Ngah n Pak Su came down to Kertih. But they ended up help me out with the chores. Hohohoo!!!!

N Papa recorded a birthday video performed by Iman n Ilham which had really flattered me!!! They stayed up till 12 midnite for this vid, ok! N posted it in FB.

N next morning, Iman refused to go to school coz she wants to get me a birthday cake. So, Pa
pa bought another cake for the birthday girl. N the birthday girl got wishes-after-wishes from her SIL. Hahahaha…

Just nice for all of us. Whole cake will be too much. 

N later that nite Iman cried again, dgn tersedu2 just becoz she wanted a birthday cake too. I said we shared the cake n she said, ‘No, Papa ckp tu kek Ibu’. Hahahahhaa… She still doesn’t understand what birthday actually is. Cute.

N we started to pack for our long vacations, going to north n south. North for a wedding n south for family vacation.  A day b4 the wedding, while Papa spent his time pampering his car, me n the kids followed Atuk n Opah to their orchard for some local fruits. It was great as Atuk took us up to the hill n see the almost half of Ipoh. :)

U can view half of Ipoh from Atuk's Orchard

But we just stayed in the car sbb byk nyamuk. Spoil kids!!! hahahaha

The nx day, my cousins got married n no caterings… yerp, home cooked food. Salute2~~

Busy catching up, with their own activities

We went straight to Seremban after the wedding for our South journey. To south, we went to JPO (wrong planning, we shudnt go on weekends), Wan Teh's n Spore n return home via Mersing. 

Stop for breakfast @ Ayer Keroh

A whole new adventure, new discovery for us. It was a long stretch of journey but it was fun. The kids were happy n wish it didn’t end. But they also glad that they got the chance to meet their playroom again. :)

Another 2 days of school n off for my office's family day.

Boss tecik

N after the event we had our unplanned private birthday party for abang in the playroom. We did some last minute deco n it was splendid. The kids just enjoyed it very much.

I'm turning 2!!

He conquered his cake

N made his own facial scrub ;ppp

We shud be celebrating his bday this weekend in KL but had to cancel it due Papa's 3 weeks assignment. :((( Luckily MakSu is here to help me out. Otherwise, my life will be haywire!!

Other than that, I'm plain happy!!!

See u nx yr!!!

It’s a blessing in disguise

Our maid left. After serving us for a year. She’s pregnant and then she ran away with her husband. Only Allah knows what I felt. Relief, anger, sympathy, sad, happy, u name it. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, for the past 1 week. A lot. N it appears in my dreams, one of the times. I just couldn’t figure out what we did wrong n where. Our relationship was smooth, we respect each other, help each other. If she made mistakes, she apologized, if I made mistakes, I apologized too.
N after a week of disappearance, she sms-ed us saying how sorry she was for leaving us abruptly. N I guessed it’d cleared all the doubt that I have. As what we’d thought, the husband is the culprit. I’m not gonna spoil my mood or even my entry thinking bout it.
She’s such a nice person that I’ve known. She took good care of the house n the kids, when I requested too.
N now she’d left, I never regret for sending the kids to the nursery eventhough she was around to take care of them. I’m not having such a hard time now. It’s just the house chores that I need to deal with, again. (Just feel like bragging to those who'd been saying that my maid just goyang kaki at home coz i send my kids to the nursery. I got my reasons for sending my kids to the nursery, listen to the experts once in a while, will u?)
N now she’d left, I never regret for having her for the past 1 yr. She had done a very good job in making our home in place n now we just need to maintain it.
N now she’d left, I never regret her presence that I’d learnt a lot from her in terms of managing chores n tackling kids.
N now she’d left, I never regret that she’s pregnant. There are some voices whom kinda blaming us for not forcing her to take any contraceptive method. She is so kind n she deserve to have her own kids. I’m happy that she’s pregnant. I really do. At least I’m not carrying the dosa of stopping her to have kids.
N now she’d left, we’d gained back our privacy life.
N now she’d left, we’d had a lot of matured discussion in terms of managing our life, putting everything in place.
N now she’d left, we had more family time. We do chores together, we bathe the kids, co-eating with them, play with them more often than we used to.
The only thing that I regret is the way she left us. I always dreamt of having such a nice farewell. But I don’t blame her. She’s just doing her job as a loyal wife. I blamed the culprit. Blueeeeekk!!
I know she’s not reading this, but I really thank her for what she had done to us. No hard feelings.
