2022, I won something - Idemitsu Sepak Takraw League Selfie Contest

Guess i should write on the beauty of 2022. Its day 41 of 2022 and to be honest, i think i have a lot to share. If it is not in social networking (cos Im just like that), I will share with the person who are closed to me. Just now, I had my two hours session with my parents. Sharing my daily life, my achievement, and of cos some juicy stories :D.

By the way, today, for the first time after many many many years, i get to taste a mini prize giving ceremony. Tho it was not a big gift, but kakak sangat happy. 

I joined a selfie contest organized by Astro Arena in conjunction with Sepak Takraw League a week back. Coincidently, few weeks back, we went to visit my sister's house in Sendayan and they turn on the tv and that time, it was a live sepak takraw match. So dari tengok begitu-begitu sahaja, my husband now becomes a STL fan with 90% of our Astro air time is on Arena. 

So to cut it short, we invited our friends to come over to our house last week and again, we watched the STL together. and mind you. rumah kami memang meriah tengok STL. While watching, the tv host shared on the selfie competition and quickly we just snap our photo together.

And the rest is history. I mean the history is - I was announced as one of the winners :). 

They wanted to come over and interview us and hand in the prizes. and of cos, i pushed Mr. Husband to represent me hahahaha. Initially, I planned for both my husband and our friend Izani to be in that interview session, but Arena just wanted to feature one person. so begitulah.. Really sorry Izani. 

I scheduled the session on Thursday and the best part, the host, Alice and ATM's player, Ude came over. So while they busy preparing my husband, 


let me have a photo session with them first.

We forced Emir to follow us tho he knows nothing about sepak takraw. budak ni kan skema :D

Credit goes to my husband because he is just so natural during the interview session.

Before they left, kami ambillah gambar bersama. We have made to understand that the video will be uploaded on their youtube channel (Astro Arena) next Tuesday.

and yeah, he said, kene ambik gambar dengan Alice, barulah gambar boleh viral sikit -- ya rite...

and we won this.. Alhamdulillah

After 2 years: Its good to be back

Since Covid exist, I decided to stay with my father. Mom is still working in Brunei, hence Baba no longer has a freedom to visit Mama in Brunei. I remember during the first phase of MCO, we were eager to catch the latest news of covid cases. They said blessing in disguise, honestly all of us pickup a new hobby. Still remember during the first phase? Gardenia sold as a hotcake, gone in a split second and suddenly, not that we know, we can even bake our homemade bread. I myself, expanded my cooking skills. During Ramadhan in 2020, i managed to cook a different set of kuih muih as dessert for berbuka. From kuih koci, tepung gomak, seri muka, currypuff, you just named it. Some was a success and of cos some was a disaster. :) 

this is only a fraction what i've cooked during MCO 

Then, hubby took over the kitchen for at least a month. Gosh, he can really cook. Macam macam. Tauhu bergedil, rendang, perut, hati. I shared all posts via my instastory and it seems like we open our own restaurant at our house with us as the only customers :p.

sate pun hubby masak

Anyway, 2021 is over, I am still staying at my father's crib. Baba now alhamdulillah, with Mama in Brunei since last December (after almost two years staying apart). Living for two years at my father's house, tho it was my house back then, but honestly you cant seem to do what you can do :).  I understand my father discomfort feeling when we conquered half of the space downstairs to place all my kerepeks and Shopee stocks. But you see, I still have to earn a living and at the same time to take care of my father. And i failed to balance it. 

kerepek yang i jual dan bermacam-macam lagi. just hit to my shopee ya. "babymombuddy"

I thanked Baba for not making a big fuss for the mess that we did. Of cos, he is sometimes. but most of the time he tolerated with us. Alhamdulillah.

So fast forward, last 3 nights we have moved to our house after two years. Gosh two years seems a famous number now. It was a sudden decision. All started when we went to Nilai for Emir's dental appointment (will blog insyaAllah), when suddenly husband bought 6 packs of lambs. Haish.. He wanted to invite our family friends to come over at my father's house, but i changed the decision as i think this will be the best time to restart our "life".

-lamb yang kami hidang-

Of cos the house is in a big mess. Dusty masyaAllah. In the span of two hours, we managed to mop and clean the house, boleh lah untuk orang datang.. Glad we did. Else it will never happen ... 

First family to arrive

Orang kata tetamu itu rezeki. Moga rumah ini sentiasa berada dalam keberkatan.

Yes. We invited two families to our house. Of cos the usual suspect. No cooking was done. We bought Nasi Arab, oranges and grilled the lamb. Ija bought us satay. Wah lah.. 

You know what i love the most? With guests coming over, I can used my plates - and washed and washed and washed until it cleans. Seronok... I think i was the only host who keep reminded the guests "ok ini pinggan orang besar, ini pinggan budak kecik" Forgive me hahaha. Biasalah mak mak you have this one set pinggan yang you sayang gile tapi nak jamu jugak. I have one lol.. 

can you imagine, this tiny house received guests after two years

Another exciting part, one of the family overnight at our house. Again was a challenge sebab bantal tak cukup, toto takde, berhabuk pulak tu.. aduhai.. alhamdulillah mereka sangat memahami :) sayanggg depa..

The next morning, our guests, cooked Nasi Lemak for us.. Bak kata tiktok "korang ada tetamu, tetamu masak untuk korang, tak ada, lemahh" hahaha joke ok :) 


For the kids, tak lain tak bukan, the best thing they like our house because of tadaaaa...

Swimmingg timeeee

Before they went back, managed to eat Yee Sang with them... 

Alhamdulillah, all i can say, it is good to be back at your own crib. Tho it is small, it is still yours..

Should i blog regularly?

My first post in 2022. 

Alhamdulillah, alive and kicking. 

By the way, I have just transferred to the new department effective 1 December 2021. Honestly, I am honored to be in this department, a lot of things to learn but so far, I am blessed with the helpful colleagues around. 

Ok aside of work, starting my 2022, i really wanted to update my life story on a daily basis. Sharing what I have experienced through out the day because you know, 10 years down the road later, you will enjoy to read your journey at this time. 

But the problem is, I am lazy to blog, but i love to write on my instastory. But (sorry another BUT), I dont really like to share my personal to my colleague, bosses or relatives hahaha.. No, no, no, dont get me wrong, I dont have any sour relationship with them, its just that, when you meet them, you know, they know you more but pretend to be -- i dont know you -- :p Get it? And the sad part, you do not know anything about them. 

Anyway, on the 1st of January 2022, i had a road trip with my husband and my son to Ipoh, and celebrating the 12 midnight on the highway. 

It was definitely an impromptu decision, never in our plan we are going anywhere. Well, I have shared the same story in my instastory, so i just wanna share some photos here.
