LiL-baby ....

*click pic for larger view*...pesanan dari penaja...

for those yang haven't heard the news...i'm back in Malays1a
it had been nearly 3 weeks since i'm back home...
had been really busy catching up on things. banyak nak cite just don’t have the time to really sit down and write.
managed to spend remaining ShawaL face-stuffing and attending open house invitations. Attended Alia's Convocation Day, aLia's convocation dinner and Adli's birthday celebration.

ooH ya.. i've started working again but it's not like i'm doing this for a long term's more of like "landing a helping hand" rather than working as most of my "working" hour normally starts at 11:30 and ends as early as 4 ke..or bile i feel like it. The boss have agreed on having "flexi-hours" and more of "coordination, training all the newbie & attending meetings" kindda work routine. Less design work. me likeY.

Hubby is still in saud1..bahr1n to be exact. Hopefully he'll be back soon in Abu dhab1.Pity him.. bored sesorang kat saud1. Really hoping that he'll get his leave approved once he's back in abu dhab1. REally hope for him to be around during the delivery.

Had my regulaR baby check uP's healthy. as of today i'm 30 weeks 5 days. I'll be lying if i said that i'm not worried at all about the delivery. Been having cold feet every time pikir pasal bersalin...Praying really hard for an easy delivery and a perfectly healthy and fit baby.Insya-Allah.Pls pray for me..

~jUst can't resist to post the baby's piC~
soRRy..mama is verY excited...

Hussin managed to pull of a great suprise b'day dinner for his beloved wife doya. The b'day girl was in much suprise indeed, flowers...cakes.. anuar zaiN singing in the background GuCCi handbag as her b'day gift from her beloved hubby..numerous gifts..surrounded by close friends and family..good food..good ambience..what more can a birthday girl ask for?

house WarMinG...

*click on piCs for bigger view*

~the fOod~

~the guests~

~the kids~

~the Tuan Umah~

Huh...LEga...aLhamdulillah iT all went really well...

WE had our kenduri doa selamat & House warming last friday at villa no 2. Kalifah bin Zayed CitY. the earlier planned baca yasin & solat jemaah was shifted to after Isya as most of the guest sampai slightly late.. ade yang siap sesat sampai ke airport dah. Almaklumlah..Umah tUan umah nih kat UlU sikiT.

we served Mandhi dajaj and lamb, Home Cooked "CurrY mamaK", french loaf, kueh raye (yang penat aku usung dari malaysia), fruits and soft cookies. Ample food. Thanks to hubby yang sanggup gi mina port fetch the mandhi.

ade yang can't make it as they have plans and some of them still tak balik beraya lagi but Insya-Allah Hubby will be doing some sort of barbeque once he's back from saudi nanti. As for now i'm happy that everything was done up nicely.

Oh Ya.. surprisingly yours truly will be back in Malaysia soon. Surprised? tak yah cakap korang, aku pun still tak percaya lagi. Yup..both hubby and me have decided that it might be a better option that i have the baby in Malaysia. Since Hubby will not be around for nearly a month starting Wednesday, and nearing the delivery nanti he'll be going somewhere else lagi.. so due to his absence's the best that i'm back in Malaysia.

macam sesuke hati aje main ke sana ke sini- macam biskot chipsmore tak ingat perot dah makin beso, but this might be the last of it as I’m in my 7th month dah and by right dah tak boley nak fly. Hopefully it's for the best.Insya-Allah

*stiLL having mixed feelings about leaving*

buTton popping session- AbU dhabi version..

~mandhi anyone?~

~the chocolat galler~

~tunggu nak terkam mandhi~

~the "mandhi Place"~

as it's nearing my 7th month of pregnancy, mY appetite seems to be catching up on pace. the only thing that worries me is that i don't think it's adding any pounds to my weight...tummy getting bigger- definitely and i can now fit into my miki preggie pants (finally). i'm making full use of those preggie cloths as tinggal lagi 2 bulan aje pun nak bergaya ngan baju pregnant (Insya-Allah). For people back home yang worry i don't eat and can't adapt to the food here .. worry no more.. This preggie mummY is munching her way all through out the day.

Had my first encounter with the most talked about "mandhi" last week. lebih kurang macam nasik beriani gam just that it's served in dulangs instead of plates (suitable for big eaters). As for the rest of the food's easy peasy to please my taste buds. theY do have Chilis here Hubby says- fOod that you call home.surprisingly you find so much comfort in chilis.It does bring back good memories of all the chilis trip that we had back home.

as for coffee place, there're bunch of it here. There's this coffee and chocolate place in marina called "The Cholate GalleR" where it reminds me of janie...the whole place is having a combination of orange and white. a bit tOOo "Finding nemO" for me but janie would adore this place and since we haven't establish our net-connection at home.. i've been making frequent trips to "the galler" as they have wifi and the CluB sandwich is good.

the house that is Slowly becoming a HOME..

~boxes here..boxes there...boxes everywhere..~

I must say I haven’t been spending that much $$ in my life compared to the last few days here. We took the opportunity of the Long raye holidays to settlekan barang2 rumah. Went furniture hunting, beli barang dapur, beli some home deco stuff and have to admit that it’s really pricey here and inefficient. Bayangkan … it will take us another 3 weeks to get our purchased items delivered from 1kea.. and the electrical goods pulak took a solid 2 weeks to be delivered. oNe thing that annoys us here..suke hati diorang aje nak deliver bile barang tuh, our mattress was delivered at 10:30 at night semalam and they don’t have the courtesy to call in advance and advise you when they are coming lak tuh.

The house is very cozy and spacious. Alhamdulillah, even tough belom sumer barang dah sampai.. a few more batches of delivery yet to come but the house is slowly becoming a HOME…

the One with sleepless raya night...

~ ketupatku~

~posing raya yang wajib*poyo*~

~raye di perantauan * sedih...waaaaa*~

~preggie mama posing raye~

~ raya iN mafraQ~

mY chaotic raya preparation started when we got the news that Abu dhab1 raya sehari awaL from MAlaysia, mase tuh it was about 9 o'clock malaM..still kat airport nak hantar kawan hubby balik beraye dikampung. It was nearly 1 o'clock when we left carr3fore after beli2 barang for raya preparation. Kul 12 baru nak start carik daging nak buat rendang. Due to time constraiN..hubby decided just to prepare soto & ketupat palas instead. It was really tiring as at 5am i'm still wide awake dok anyam ketupat palas. Ishk..ishK..ishk... missed solat raya as sini solat raya awal...slightly after subuh. But Alhamdulillah everything went well. The alst0m boys came down all the way from duBai and we managed to meet up at azman's house in mafraq.later part of the nite we had a small makan2 session at Du's place. The ketupat palas was a big hit not to mention the soto as well *berbaloi tak tido satu malam*

This year i celebrated my 1st raya as a wife disamping hubby terchenta and away from family kat m'sia. Sad ? definately... but i have to say that there are certain things in life we have to forgo and be out of our comfort zone once in a while. As for me, i must admit that it was difficult but have to make the best out of it. Alhamdulillah.. both of us are slowly adapting life here. FoR all our familY and friends.. selamat hari raye..maaf zahir & batin from afaR.
