I Don't Know How To Describe This Video

But you gotta see this. Hehe..

Cute? Sweet?
Bieber Fever. What a phenomenon!


I Love This Song That I Play It Over & Over Again

And the lyrics goes like this…
Have you ever loved someone so much, you’d give an arm for?
Not the expression, no, literally give an arm for?
When they know they’re your heart
And you know you were their armour
And you will destroy anyone who would try to harm ‘her
But what happens when karma, turns right around and bites you?
And everything you stand for, turns on you, despite you?
What happens when you become the main source of her pain?
“Daddy look what I made”, Dad’s gotta go catch a plane
“Daddy where’s Mommy? I can’t find Mommy where is she?”
I don’t know go play Hailie, baby, your Daddy’s busy
Daddy’s writing a song, this song ain’t gonna write itself
I’ll give you one underdog then you gotta swing by yourself
Then turn right around in that song and tell her you love her
And put hands on her mother, who’s a spitting image of her
That’s Slim Shady, yeah baby, Slim Shady’s crazy
Shady made me, but tonight Shady’s rocka-by-baby…

And when I’m gone, just carry on, don’t mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I’m looking down on you smiling
And I didn’t feel a thing, So baby don’t feel no pain
Just smile back
And when I’m gone, just carry on, don’t mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I’m looking down on you smiling
And I didn’t feel a thing, So baby don’t feel no pain
Just smile back…

I keep having this dream, I’m pushin’ Hailie on the swing
She keeps screaming, she don’t want me to sing
“You’re making Mommy cry, why? Why is Mommy crying?”
Baby, Daddy ain’t leaving no more, “Daddy you’re lying
“You always say that, you always say this is the last time
“But you ain’t leaving no more, Daddy you’re mine”
She’s piling boxes in front of the door trying to block it
“Daddy please, Daddy don’t leave, Daddy – no stop it!”
Goes in her pocket, pulls out a tiny necklace locket
It’s got a picture, “this’ll keep you safe Daddy, take it withcha’”
I look up, it’s just me standing in the mirror
These fuckin’ walls must be talking, cuz man I can hear ‘em
They’re saying “You’ve got one more chance to do right” – and it’s tonight
Now go out there and show that you love ‘em before it’s too late
And just as I go to walk out of my bedroom door
It’s turns to a stage, they’re gone, and this spotlight is on
And I’m singing…

Sixty thousand people, all jumping out their seat 
The curtain closes, they’re throwing roses at my feet
I take a bow and thank you all for coming out
They’re screaming so loud, I take one last look at the crowd
I glance down, I don’t believe what I’m seeing
“Daddy it’s me, help Mommy, her wrists are bleeding,”
But baby we’re in Sweden, how did you get to Sweden?
“I followed you Daddy, you told me that you weren’t leavin’
“You lied to me Dad, and now you make Mommy sad
“And I bought you this coin, it says ‘Number One Dad’
“That’s all I wanted, I just want to give you this coin
“I get the point – fine, me and Mommy are going”
But baby wait, “it’s too late Dad, you made the choice
“Now go out there and show ‘em that you love ‘em more than us”
That’s what they want, they want you Marshall, they keep.. screamin’ your name
It’s no wonder you can’t go to sleep, just take another pill
Yeah, I bet you you will. You rap about it, yeah, word, k-keep it real
I hear applause, all this time I couldn’t see
How could it be, that the curtain is closing on me
I turn around, find a gun on the ground, cock it
Put it to my brain and scream “die Shady” and pop it
The sky darkens, my life flashes, the plane that I was supposed to be on crashes and burns to ashes
That’s when I wake up, alarm clock’s ringin’, there’s birds singin’
It’s Spring and Hailie’s outside swinging, I walk right up to Kim and kiss her
Tell her I miss her, Hailie just smiles and winks at her little sister
Almost as if to say..

I know know, sucha lame of me for liking Eminem.  But who cares? I love Slim Shady since the day i heard Stan, when i was still in secondary school. It’s the lyrics makes me crazy over him. I just like rap & hip hop & R&B. Im always impressed by people who really can rap! [have you try rapping? It's not easy to rap you know? You have to really know your words.. try it!]
He’s loving, unique and honest in his song. He wrote so many about his life and how he was brought up and how he don’t want her daughter to have the life he had before. He tried to be the best dad, the number 1 dad for his daughter, Hailie. Hailie is everything to him. I remember once upon a time [when i was still in school, teenage girl], i really really like really really wanted to meet Eminem, to be in his arm and cuddling and and be the queen of his heart. I even hafal all the stuff about him, I watched [of course only from TV, u think my mom would let me go to his concert? hahaha!]/bought every single cd [the original CD tau! tak main lah cetak rompak punye!] & concert vcd of Eminem. Pergh…mmg hard core fan lah mase tu. But bile dah besa sikit, i slow down a bit, thinking that I wont ever gonna meet him face to face, and its far from reality that I’m gonna be his girlfriend, or wife, or the mother of his child… haha! So i move on… And i got a better one, the best husband ever! Who also can rap [in a funny way] about me. LOL~
*Enjoy this song people!


It's Been Too Long I Haven't Shop

i just hope i can make it there today

The Waiting Game

Hola! No, no, i haven't give birth yet. We're still playing the waiting game. I'm not enjoying the waiting game, this is so stressful for me. I'm in my 37 week now. My official estimated due is on May 15th 2011, so basically i have another 3 more weeks to go. 

Playing the waiting game is not as fun as you thought

The Antenatal Class (Part 2)

Hello there! Sorry for the extended delay for this entry post. I just got the camera from my sis. 

We went for antenatal class which was held at Columbia Asia Puchong at Bandar Puteri at my 34week. It was not bad, very informative for both of us. I won't be delivering my baby here at Columbia Asia though. It was our second option at first [1st option was Naluri Medical Centre]. But we changed our mind recently to Putrajaya Hospital under the FPP scheme [cheaper and more nearer to our house]. We were supposed to go for antenatal class at Putrajaya Hospital; where we registered to deliver our baby but we didn't. The reason is because, the class will only be once a month and ONLY on MONDAY [and ONLY those who registered to deliver their baby there are welcome to participate]. Very exclusive. But the thing is we don't want to waste our annual leave just for the class. So we looked for other options, and lucky us Columbia Asia antenatal class is still ongoing in April on Sunday. So i called them and register. The fees differences are not much, Columbia Asia is RM80/couple and Putrajaya Hospital is RM70/couple. 

What did we get for RM80/couple? We got a goodie bag full with some samples like milk from EnfaMama, some diapers for newborn, lots of pamphlets which contains a very important informations, head pillow for baby, nursing bag, some fancy flash card for baby, and a lot more i can't remember. They also provide breakfast and lunch. We had sandwiches with tea/coffee for breakfast and a plate of fish & chip with cordial drinks and some dessert. Sangat puas hati lah pendek kata.

And the talk were given on : 
-Physiology of normal pregnancy
-The Labor- What every woman should know
-Common problems in newborn
-Epidural anesthesia
-Video show epidural
-Tips to reduce backache during pregnancy
-Breastfeeding technique
-Nursing your baby
-Antenatal exercise 
-Ward tour
*Too bad they didn't show the video of normal birthing and c-sect. But you can still watch it on Youtube though.

Overall, the talk was not bad, i only yawned like a couple of times. It's because i am really sleepy [sleepless night, you know why]  not because i was bored with all the lectures ya? [they will let you ask any question at the end of their lecture] Let me share one of my favourite part from the class. It's called Myth or Fact of Pregnancy.

1.MYTH : When you're pregnant, you should be eating for 2.
  FACT : You should not be eating for 2. Eat like you normally do but change to a healthy  
  meal if you could.Because logically your baby is sooooooooooooo tiny to eat all the second  
  portion of yours. He probably will eat only 1/7 from the foods that you consume.

2. MYTH : It's okay to be fat during pregnancy
    FACT : You should only be gained 15kg MAXIMUM from your ideal weight. Being pregnant 
    is not a PASS for you to be fat and eat every food that you can find in this world. You  
    still have to control your ideal body weight and BMI. This will prevent you to get any 
    'unwanted' disease such as diabetes or high blood pressure during pregnancy.

3. MYTH : DHA is the only nutrient needed for baby's development.
    FACT : DHA is important for baby's brain development. But there's a lot of other nutrient  
    needed such as Choline, Folic Acid and Calcium.

4. MYTH : All milk are the same
    FACT : Not all milk are the same

Now, can you the different between the myth and the fact? 
And this is the suggested daily menu that you can follow once you know that you're pregnant.

Another interesting part is the ward tour. They bring us to see the ward the single bedded and double bedded and also the labor room. 

The labor room is very cozy! Loving it but too bad i'm not gonna give birth here. I wonder how is the labor room in Putrajaya Hospital. Would it be this nice? But according to a friend of mine who went to antenatal class at Putrajaya Hospital, she said that the labor room is nice and cozy too. I will not put high expectation, but hopefully it will be as nice as this or even better. Hehe..

So if you still hesitating whether you should participate the antenatal class or not, i'd say go for it! Especially to the first time parents [ade jugak yang tengah pregnant anak kedua dan ketiga join this class].  At least you get the idea on how you should handle yourself and your wife(for husband) and your baby.  Don't ever think this class is a burden, enjoy it! You wont  be regret. Trust me  :)

Sotong Goreng Kunyit

Hello everyone. I'm going to share with you guys a simple recipe. Sotong Goreng Kunyit. One of my favourite dish. Hehe. I know a lot of you already know how to make this, but there are some people yang tak tahu langsung nak masak okay? So this is for you guys out there, yang baru nak belajar2 masak.

Sotong Goreng Kunyit. Ni bukan gambar hiasan. 

Bahan-bahan :
- 4-5 ekor sotong  (potong bulat2 macam dalam gambar tu.kalau sotong kecik2 tambahlah lagi beberapa ekor)
-1 biji bawang besar
-2 ulas bawang putih
-2-3 biji cili api (kalau nk rase lagi pedas2 tambah lah ikut suka)
-3 sudu kecil kunyit (terpulang kalau suka banyak, letak banyak)
-garam secukup rasa
-Nampla beberapa titik. (stok ikan)
-daun bawang,daun sup untuk hiasan.

Cara-cara :
1. Mula-mula basuh sotong bersih-bersih dan potong. Kemudian rebus sotong tersebut untuk keringkan airnya. Supaya nanti bile masak tak meletup-letup, sebab sotong banyak air.

2. Lepas dah kering dan bau sotong dah naik. Matikan api. Lepas tu masukkan sotong dalam bekas lain untuk garam kunyitkan sehingga rata.

3. Kemudian panaskan minyak dalam kuali. Lepas dah panas, boleh masukkan bawang putih, bawang besar dan cili api tadi. Tumis sampai naik bau.

4. Setelah naik bau, masukkan sotong yang telah digaram kunyitkan tadi ke dalam kuali bersama-sama dengan   bahan yg telah ditumis.

5. Kuatkan api dalam 2-3 minit untuk bagi sotong garing, lepas tu titikkan Nampla. (3-4 titik pon dah cukup) . Lepas tu kecil kan api, gaul lagi semua hingga rata selama beberapa minit.

6. Dah masak, tutup api. Masukkan ke dalam pinggan. Lepas tu potong lah daun bawang dan daun sup, tabur kan atas hidangan tadi.

7. Hidangkan nasi, makan lah ape lagi.

Simple isn't it? Happy cooking!   :) 


Aladdin Chinese Muslim Restaurant

As usual, everyday we have a problem making decision on what to eat for dinner, since i'm not cooking anymore nowadays. A bit hard for me to move fast as i was before around the kitchen. But once in a while i will try my best to cook, but i'm too slow now to even walk from the sink to fridge. 

So last night, since both of us have no idea on what to eat i suddenly think of begedel and paru goreng from Sari Ratu. I love their begedel, that's the only reason i keep on coming there. But K don't know what to eat at Sari Ratu. I try not to be selfish, so i let him choose. He suggested Ayam Penyet, but i don't feel like eating Ayam Penyet last night. And the list goes on. Being a very lovely husband he brought me to Sari Ratu in Kelana Jaya (the nicest branch according to him compared to Bandar Puteri or Subang or Ampang). Unfortunately for me, the begedel was all finish! Urrghhh...How come?? Stress betul mak tau.. 

So off we went to find another place for dinner. It was 9.30PM already that time. And I am starving+ frustrate. As we drove pass the Sari Ratu suddenly we saw a restaurant called Aladdin, Chinese Muslim Restaurant. Because i was starving and both of us were very sleepy, so we decided to give it a try and hopefully it's not closing yet. Luckily their business hour is from 11am - 10.30pm. As we reached inside the restaurant, there were only  2 customers plus us. So you can imagine how quiet it is with Celion Dion song as the background music accompanied us. We chose the non-smoking section. The decoration is nice, there's a chinese set round table for like 10 people and also the normal table with marble top. We don't know what to order because there's too many choices. We just ordered 2 dishes, dried butter chicken and garlic khailan with lychee and ice water for the drinks. Once the foods arrived i quickly took picture of it, and suddenly the waitress came to us and said "sorry miss, no photos of our food and drink". I was like wth?? like i'm stealing your recipe through the photos, idiot! But i manage to take a couple of photos though. We paid for the food okay? The food was not nice. I mean i can cook way better than that. Even the khailan, i think kedai awe kelate masak lagi sedap lah weh! Seriously spoil our mood. K already started making faces. And i tried to cover my face expression cuz i dun wanna be rude. 

At 10pm, as we eat  the waitress ask us whether we want to add-on any dish, and we politely said, "no thanks, all set". Dan-dan tu jugak semua pekerja macam kelam kabut kemas kedai, angkat segala utensil,sapu sampah, tutup pintu kedai, bising-bising habis. Nak makan pon tak senang. They wrote outside the door business hour til 1030pm, but that time only 10pm. How rude! It's like they want to halau us. I feel very angry! Seriously they need to learn some courtesy. But i keep eating slowly like nothing happen around me.

These is what we ordered.Garlic Khailan + Dried Butter Chicken. RM50.00. And the food tasted like ****. Kalau sedap takpe jugak, puas hati. Ini jauh panggang dari api.

That's it. The first and the last lah we're going there. No wonder no one ever recommend us to eat there. And i  tried google about them this morning, found some bad review as well. Especially regarding the 'No photos on food and drinks' according to them their food and drinks are very sensitive. LOL! Now, what to eat for dinner tonight? Sigh~

Apa Ada Pada Nama?

I wanna share with you guys, my experience after participating the antenatal class in Columbia Asia Hospital Puchong, but my camera which have photos from the class is with my sister now. So i can't share much. I hope i can get it soon and share it here. Sabaq sikit na? 

I am now 35 week pregnant. Another 5 more weeks to go. Honestly, i can't stand it anymore, i just hope and wish and pray that my lil' prince will make his grand arrival like 2 or 3 weeks earlier from the estimated due which is May 15th. Went for a check up last week, baby is now 2.4kg and healthy. Took some blood test and MGTT (test where i have to drink a packet of sugar,which is extremely sweet that i cried swallowing it) because my mom have diabetese so i need to go for this test. Will get the result on our next check up. Hopefully i'm 'clean'. 

So yeah, only 5 more weeks to go. Preparation is like 80% done. Bought the essentials stuff, standby some essentials in the car in case of emergency and called the urut lady, what else? oh we haven't buy his bath basin,nail clipper,nappy cream yet. Hopefully we can get it within this week. We planned to decorate a nursery room for him, but it didn't go well as the plan, too busy on the weekends. But will get it set eventually   :)

We have a name for him already. Keep calling that name since the fourth month. K have a thing for names. He wants it to be meaningful. No urban or mat salleh name for our kids. At first i told him, "let's name him Isaac son of Abraham". I love that name. Been berangan to call my own son Isaac. He asked me "what's the meaning of Isaac?". Told him it is an English name for Isa son of Prophet Ibrahim.(Well actually it's originated from Hebrew meaning 'he will laugh'.)It's kinda a good meaning though for Hebrew. Unfortunately K didn't like it. Then i proposed another name, which is Mikhael one of our Angels name. He likes it, but when we 'looked' around us, there's alot of Mikhael now. So na'ah, we keep looking and we found a couple of name that we both like. We want to keep it simple and as short as we can. Because you know if you have a long name like for example, Muhammad Ayden Hood Harith bin Mohd Azri, eventually he'll be call only Ayden, or maybe Hood, or Aris, or maybe Mat. Right? So we are trying to make it as short and simple as we can, but meaningful. 

Since the widespread of Western culture throughout the world, it has become customary amongst Muslims not to take into cognisance the meaning of the name when naming a child.  Naming a child with a beautiful and honourable name is very important. The Prophet always chose names with good and beautiful meanings, even telling people to change their names if they had unpleasant meanings.Nowadays many people chose to name their kids with urban name to keep up with the trend like, Alexander for Iskandar, Isaac for Isa, Abraham for Ibrahim or Iman Noel taken after Emanuelle. Well as long as it has a good meaning, to each his own. 

**tapi kalau name panjang dan bermakna pun, last2 panggil edy,ery,zal,epul,ira,lya,mat saje. takde makne jugak an an?? ..  TOO EACH HIS OWN


My Very Own family

I want to be like this can? 
(baru pregnant sekali dah tak tahan and merungut mcm2, camane nak ade big family nih?)

The Antenatal Class

We went for the antenatal class last 2 weeks at Columbia Asia Hospital. Will update about it soon.
