First it ok?

The sun is shinning so bright,
It makes me feel all right,
the moon is lighting in the night,
it a sign for night-night...
The stars are twinkling in the skies,
Dancing and making rhymes for my lullabies.

I love the tranquil night,
As I close my eyes very tight,
I can feel myself safe and snug,
Especially when I sleep alone in the dim light.

Fairytale is my bedtime story.
Reading by my daddy.
Hugs and kisses mummy,
Hugs and kisses daddy...

mummy said, sleep tight baby,
and daddy said, dun let the bed bug bites dearie..

Muahh..Night night...

What I should not do...

I can spot a few things I should not do when I did my preparation for the arrival of Baby Haris. If just I can turn back time, I will mend all these for a better way..

1. Buying cot - I should invest some more money on the cot bed instead of baby cot. The cot bed is bigger than baby cot and you can change it to a bed when your baby is growing up. The cot bed normally suitable until the age of the baby is 6 years old.

2. Buying clothes - I should not buy too many clothes for my bbay since baby is growing up fast. At the age of 9 months old, Haris has 3 large of plastic bags of unfit clothes.

3. Buying sterilizer n bottles - I should not bought it earlier. Until now, Haris refuses to use a bottle.

Hmm.. I have plenty to list down but suddenly, I just could not recall them.hmm..

to be continued..

unspeakable mind and thought

My half occupied mind and heart make me feel uneasy and tired. I am tired to keep thinking of what if, what is, what this and etc. Part of my heart says, maybe it is the time to mend the condition but the rest of it says what is the consequences of this and that.

I do not know. I really do not know. What do I want? Am I doing the right thing here? I do not know..

'Whatever will be, will be..
The future is not ours to see..'

Backdated entry on his birthday..10042010

April 10th 2010 is Am's birthday. This time it is so special simply because we celebrated it with Haris's presence. We just had our simple meal at Pizza Hut. This year, there was no special preparation and surprise since I had so little time to prepare for everything. For a gift, I just gave him some money to buy something that he really liked and he chose to buy a PDA phone or should I say iphone? I do not know much about gadget thingies, Just asked me about designer handbags so I shall know in detail. hehehe..

To my dear husband, Happy birthday to you. I hope this year may bring you happiness, success, well-being and everything. Just so you know, Haris and I love you so damn much and we are always proud of you.

Papa et Hubby, when everything seems dull and cliche, you always there for me and otherwise..

I love you..n Haris loves you too..

My baby favourite food's recipe

Being a mum is not as easy as ABC. One of the challenging tasks as a mum for me is, to satisfy my baby's taste bud. When he reached eight months old, he turned to be a very picky eater. Sometimes he likes the regular food that he used to have, but on the other day he just dislikes it. So, I have to be creative to tackle this problem. I surfed in the Internet to find a very good baby's food recipe but I am very lazy to try them, until one fine day, I bought my monthly must have magazine, Mother & Baby, I got a freebie book from Annabel Karmel. She is one of the guru for the baby's food recipe. I love most of the recipes because it easy peasy to prepare in a little time.

One of the recipe that I used to cook for my baby is, Beef or chicken with vegetable puree.


-1tbs cooking oil.
-1 onion , finely chopped.
-100g beef or chicken.
-150g carrots
-1 medium size of potato. finely chopped.

How to cook?
-Heat the cooking oil in a saucepan and add the onion and saute for 2 minutes.
-Add the meat or chicken and keep stirring.
-Add all the vegetables and water until covered the ingredients in the saucepan. Do not pun so much water, the quantity just enough to cover the meats n vegies.
-simmer and out on the lid for 15 minutes or until all the ingredientes are cooked.
-Once it cooked, blend it very well.

Voila..Do not add salt into the baby's food.

That guy...

I dedicated these humble pie words for my other half. The one who is always there for me. Always walk in my life when the whole world walks out of me.. I love you so much,Darling...

As tranquil as the night
I see you deep in slumber
Peaceful and serene
Your breathing so calming
And as I looked at you sleeping
My heart lurched out for you
Cause I never notice anymore
And it's not that I don't love you
For that is a thought far from true
I do, I do cherish you
Deep from my bottomless heart
High as the highest mountain can reach
We started out as two
My love for you, and you me too,
And now we are three
And for this, I thank you.

A day trip to Jehay Castle

Last saturday, we had a chance to visit Jehay castle as we planned a few weeks earlier. Actually, we went to visit it once but due to various wrong infos from internet, we ended up back home without having a chance to visit the castle.

Jehay castle is located in a small village called, Amay. The journey time takes an hour by bus from Liege city center. The entrance fee is Euro 5 per person. Trust me, the castle is wonderful, with a huge garden laying in front of the castle and it worth for every single penny that we paid. This castle is dating back 300 years old and they preserve most of the original stuffs like before. Just imagine, they still hanging an old curtain and the age of the curtain is 300 years old.

The huge garden just so lovely to view. We could not waste the beauty of the garden by not having a photoshoot! I just took loads of photos and I was impressed by how lovely the pics are with the garden's background.

How I wish I will have a house with a garden like this in the future..Well, stop dreaming, Nurul!

Giving in?

Have we as a mum ever think of giving in when the condition is tensed? Why I said so? Ok I just want to give this for example. I was sleep training Haris by not giving him night time feeding so frequent. It just because he has the solid food thrice a day and breast milk just before dozing off to slumberland.

For nine months old baby, he should sleep through by now but it par beyond to happen for Haris. He keeps waking up in the middle of the night and he does not know how to settle himself in bed. He just too depending on breast.

To change the condition for a better night sleep pattern, I decided to reduce the amount of night feeding gradually. Before starting the training he was asking for milk every two hours. Just imagine how bad his habit was, about depending too much on breast.

When I started the plan last week, it was horrible! At first, he just cried out for almost 30 minutes and I just about to give in. But, I knew, I must firm and had a strong determination if I want my plan to success. After a couple of nights, the condition is getting ok and now, he is still waking up for night feeding but not as frequent as before.

Mother's Day

This year I had a chance to celebrate Mothering Day. The first time ever for me as a mum. Nothing special, just a simple celebration we had. My hubby just blew up three ballons that had Mother's Day word printed on them. I just had a quick photoshot at home with Haris. The photoshot that we did not plan at all, but the pics turned out ok, I guess..

Happy Mother's day to all and I could not thank God enough for giving me a chance to be a mum...
