Daddy's last chance to dukung anak. He's more emotional I think. :)
To be used forever!
Text and exercise books, nyaris siap dibalut.
Planner/Calendar for 2011 school year.
Not officially yet, coz that's gonna happen on Monday ni, but it feels like it's today sebab dah orientasi and siap kena buat assessment test bagai. No, Umaira didn't cry at all (or just yet). No, she wasn't running to me whenever she feels insecure in class. No, she didn't look lost at all! Don't know why I was expecting the "worse", so Alhamdulillah sesangat she was a-okay! But sedetik tadi rasa sebak, when the HM announced the kids need to line-up according to their class (she's in 1 Setia) and the teacher will walk them to class for the assessment. Satu, I thought I'd be the one walking her to class and dua, WHAT TEST lah?? Rupa2nya they want to see which kids need extra attention, kot takleh baca lagi etc... Oh, okay. I think she did okay coz she wasn't pulled out of the class.
Yang kurang bestnya, none of her kindy mates are in her class. Me and Zieda, Alia Alyssa's mom were quite disappointed, but the good side of it their classes are nearby and they are going back with Aunty Carol sesama.
Pictures from school today are up on FB http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=265533&id=548779721&l=2956084ca3. Check it out!
Disebabkan the Malaysian football team menang besau last nite in Jakarta for the second (heh?) final of the Suzuki Cup, our beloved PM announce esok cuti. Rasanya dah lama gila Malaysia tak cuti mengejut2 macam ni. Dulu ada lah jugak, masa menang badminton then esoknya cuti bagai. Baguslah jugak tomorrow is public holiday, then I dont need to burn my AL. Was planning to take half day pun coz Umaira's orientation is tomorrow morning. Can't wait! Nak tahu dia masuk Darjah 1 apakah? Kiasu sama sebab I havent written anything on her books. But Daddy beat me to her names, siap tempah chop with her name bagai! Bagus! Bab tu Daddy memang cekap, I love u lah! Another thing to celebrate today is... Mummy's meeting my old buddies from sekolah menengah dulu haaa. One I have met this time last year, she's moved to Sri Lanka to teach and live with hubby yang rupa2nya orang London ya. We used to have sleepovers every week when we were close. Rasanya Papa dah tak larat2 nak berulang from TTDI to Dsara Jaya tu. And another friend who is now a tauke ladang kambing u ols! Senang Mummy nak buat aqiqah lepas ni dah tahu mana nak cari punca. Betul tak my fwen??? *hint baik punya* Yang syioknya the tauke ladang tu I haven't met since I last left SMP Sri Aman, yang duduk Sri Lanka tu dah jumpa few times (she said Daddy is good looking, biar benar???), like whenever she comes back to visit her family here. Dan lebih syiok, one of my interns is actually her cousin. Super small world!! Now the cousin is in NY sambung belajar (Miss you Aliaa). Lots of catching up to do today, mesti ni compare berat siapa lagi berat hahahahah...Layan je lah... Pengajaran: Be good friends to your classmates, and they will be your friends forever! The satisfaction of no long-lost friendship is sangat berbaloi ya anak2...
The holiday was fine, we hit the beach, played in the pool, mummy also swam macam baby paus (haha)... Sekarang suma tengah gelap terbakar, layan je lah... Prep for school/ Umaira - baju sekolah dah, tinggal satu lagi lencana. kasut sekolah dah, stokin dah, "kiwi" kasut sekolah (donno why Daddy panggil kapur kasut tu kiwi, ikh!), tshirt and track bottom dah, beg skolah dapat advance, bulan tiga nun masa bday dia so leh pakai secara rasminya. stationaries pun setel. Tinggal nak check bottle tumbler and bekas makanan pakai jek yang beli kat Ikea ittew. Prep for school/ Ulfa - Dah register, terbang ribanan uang. Dah dapat beg sekolah and uniforms. Ada ke principal tu ingat I am just gonna use Umaira's old school outfit, aiyor, so unfair. And, Ulfa is going to learn Mandarin for the next two years. Tapi bila pikirkan balik, kang masuk sekolah rendah tak guna plak Mandarin tu... How ek?
Berjaya potong rambut kat salun kena charge RM10! Pernah sekali tu, main terjah jek potong without asking, tup2 bil kena RM20 seorang kenit kot. Gilalah! Tak potong pendek sangat coz I still want the hair to be tied to school, rambut depan pun biar panjang.
Ulfa nampak sad je, tapi sebenarnya she loves her hair shorter. :)
Bukan sebab it's Xmas tapi sebab inilah last chance to go for our family holiday before the girls start school, which is kira2 seminggu from now. Huhuuuhuhuhuhuu...And when the new calendar starts, I will be super busy with photo shoots. Like gila2 punya. But before all the craziness begin, I shall totally rest and relax this weekend. We are going to Port Dickson!! Yeayyy!! Dah lama tak pergi situ, sebab tak jumpa hotel sesuwai. This time bawak my parents lepak Avillion Admiral Cove. I hope it's a nice place. Sebab memang nak terbongkang siang malam, sama ada tepi pool atau atas katil. Ni namanya meng-pauskan badan. Haha!
Tengah sangap. One of those days when you have things to do but no real motivation to actually do it. Layan blog lah jap. Dah lama pun tak hapdet. Today masuk opis, donno why and how we were talking about lipsticks. So I showed them mine. Memang pelik tapi benar, my lipsticks will look as below lepas dah beberapa kali pakai. Bentuknya melekuk di tengah. It's my signature. Nak kata bibir tebal macam Angelina Jolie idakla kan, tapi itulahnya. Memang jadi gitu. Jadi no issues lah kalau lipstick hilang kan, leh trace punya hehehehe... Sapa plak nak curi lipstick kan?
Also, tolong Beauty Editor jadi guinea pig. Dulu we tried Juvanex reramai, kononnya utk detoks lah. I was so disciplined woooh masa tu. Memang habislah, tapi tidaklah kurus pun hehehehe... Nak kata membuang baik punya pun idaklah seperti kengkawan lain. Nak sihat punya pasal, belasah jek lah. Manalah tahu ada kawasan dalaman yang berkeladak sudah berjaya dicuci. This time around, she got the below. Some fish collagen thingy yang katanya leh cantikkan kulit. Haaaaa... Apa lagi, jom cuba reramai! Mengikut arahannya, leh tuang terus serbuk tu dalam mulut and telan macam biasa, or bancuh ngn jus. Ikh, mana plak nak cari jus kat opis ni kan (malas nak turun speedmart la pulok!). So sudah tuang kat sudu dulu, rasa lah dulu serbuknya. Manalah tahu pahit melingau atau manis menjenging (serius tak tau apa maknanya, but you know what I mean). Ok gak rasanya, bermakna boleh layanlah. So sudah dapat dua pek setiap perisa utk ditest minggu Krismas ini. Ngeh ngeh ngeh... Kalau tak cantik jugak tak tau la kan...
I am home, got MC today. Ingatnya nak tidur tapi dah makan ubat, tak rasa ngantuk plak. Idung tetap tersumbat, plus it's just too noisy to sleep. Not because the kids are making much noise. Ada plak orang nak check gas bagai. Apa kes? Tau sangat nak menjual barang. Nasib baik I am home today so leh halau ngan muka annoyed. Taknaklah strangers masuk rumah, scary k! Called Daddy, dia suh call security to get rid of them. Kalau kita perlu baru panggil, napa sibuk2 nak datang jual barang. I agree. Been so busy. December memang busy month saban tahun. What with FFF Awards nak kena help pull together and selang beberapa hari kena ngadap Xmas Party opis plak. Memang body screaming for rest. Dah kena batuk kering seminggu, ditambah pulak jadi social second hand smoker during the awards tu, memang it got worse lah. I miss my teh ais, nescafe ais apa saja yang ada ais kat belakang lah! And most of all, I miss my kids. Dah few days balik lambat, memang tak sempurna nak mulakan hari without snuggling them to bits and pieces. Daddy tu pun miss la jugak, tapi itu senang jek nak disempurnakan...ahaks! And highlight for Xmas party - I won the uMama Warm massager! It can't top the iPad that our office manager won but nevertheless it's not a coffee maker or some less-worthy gadget that I wont be able to use langsung. And the MJ Cucumber perfume *faints and dream of heaven* Sungguh sodap!!! Tapi Mummy masih mengharap dapat beli the MJ Daisy again. That is favourite any day. Oklah, this is getting boooorrriiinnggg...Nak try hold up the eyes untill lunch then zzz the day away.
Di kesempatan ini, I would like to apologize to my children cause Mummy's been so busy with upcoming events at work. Tomorrow is the Cosmo Fun Fearless Fabs awards, and tak nyempat2 la lepas tu ada opis punya krismas parti plak dah. Kalau takat pi parti duduk makan2, senyum2, renyih2 dapat hadiah and balik sedap jugak. But noooo...we have to prepare some sort of gig for the party. And the theme that our team got this year is GLEE! (goli den!) and somehow, and very crooked-ly, we got Anita Sarawak while the rest dapat Beyonce lah, Madonna lah, Lady Gaga lah. Apa kena mengena Kak Nita with Glee ni?? Tapi takpe, we must always take new things as a challenge (ingat tu anak2), so we're cooking up something really special that would blow the hats off the CEO. Ko pepandai bagi tema pelik2 kan, u sure will get a pelik gig from us. Bring it on!!
One of those months when we need to do collective shoots for a few issues. My schedule becomes really packed, but once it's done and accomplished memang puas hatilah!
This was during an important Cosmo Cover Star campaign shoot. We shot 10 Cosmo girls and readers will get a chance to vote for the best cover pics. Nampak kasut hitam kat atas tu. The crazy shoes I bought tapi tak mampu nak pakai coz it's so tinggi! So dah jadi ala ala kasut wakaf for shoots. Whenever any of the talents takde super high heels, memang I will standby with this. Cian my Aldo.
Rapunzel! Bila masuk bulan baru, Umaira mesti tanya "bila nak November?" Coz we can't wait to watch one of the best Disney movies ever! Memang sangat best, the girls enjoyed it (Umaira nak jadi Rapunzel, Ulfa nak jadi the Queen coz she loves her green-grey eyes. Daddy tak pasal2 jadi Maximus, and Mummy? Jadi the little girls yang tolong braid rambut Rapunzel, apakah? Umar plak jadi the King tak pasal2 hehehehe...)
Gediks tak? I bought these for the upcoming FFF event. Tak pasal2 Umar buat jadi his toy phone. Sudah tentu menelefon Mummy lah tu. Haihhh...
Inilahnya the infamouse rat I have been updating on FB about. I told you it's HUGE!!! Dan akhirnya it surrendered into our trap sebab lapar rasanya. Who can say no to ikan tenggiri masin heh? Us at POGH! Inconjunction with tok Baba and tok Mama's 34th anniversary. Lepak sini dua malam, barulah puas...
And yes, we just had to make Mama n Baba jump for the cameras kan? And they are so sporting to actually do it. Love you mama n papa... :)
The anniversary dinner at the CarouselCafe. Flowers bought by Daddy. So cun!
On the way to the pool. Motif gambar ni? Nampak tak padang sekangkang kera yang depa tengah pijak tu? That's where this company had an event here, no tent, and about the same time I took this picture. One of the hotest event I ever attended! Kalau tau depa nak jemur media, mak pakai bikini jek wahahahahaa...
We love the pool walaupun frankly, none of my kids can actually swim. That's why mereka ada bodyguard peribadi in the pool, tak lain tak bukan Daddy tersayang lah hehehehe... And tak pasal2 Daddy juga jadi life guard kat situ sebab ada budak kecik ni nyaris lemas, Daddy sempat tarik.
And oh, Umaira went to the dentist pagi semalam. Memang Mummy berdebar2 drama gitu coz for sure she's going to go thru a traumatic experience. She was excited to go sebab last time she was at a dentist, she only had a check-up. Kali ini, memang can't escape cabut EMPAT (ya, empat) of gigi susu dia yang dah reput, to make way to her gigi kekal. Orang lain kat klinik tu punyalah puji kata Umaira brave sbb nampak rilek jek masuk bilik doctor. Half way, she was already screaming and running around the room, and keluar dari situ, Daddy kena dukung. Sian baby Mummy. On the way balik, nampak okay skit, so Mummy pun tanya "Nak gi OU tak?" Boleh dia angguk!! Bertuah betul. Untungnya cabut gigi ni, dapat izin doktor untuk makan ice cream siang dan malam, so that's what we gave her. You are indeed a brave girl, Umaira!
