She is Mobile!!

Daria's already crawling. CRAWLING!! It took her 2 days to learn to sit and a few days after that, she was moving backwards on all fours. A few days after that, she was moving forward.

Now that she's mobile, I've become very anal about the cleanliness of the floor. Fortunately bibik is the same, so she sweeps and mops the kitchen floor every morning.

I can't believe my little baby is growing up so fast. Soon she'll be walking and then running. Soon she'll wean off the breast and there won't be anymore special "us time" for me and Daria. It's not fair...I'm suppose to enjoy her baby months for much longer.

Does this make me want to have another baby soon?





Hah!!! NO!!!

Last Minute .....As Usual

It's 2.33am and I'm still up doing this stupid ERM thingy. Of course, it's due tomorrow, so tonight...pulun sampai siap!! What should have taken me 2 hours tops has turned into 5 hours and clock still ticking, thanks to my intermittent internet connection. Plus this stupid page keeps time outing, eventhough I stay on.

Grrrr...good thing I slept in the evening. Tido asar pun, tido asar la. Janji esok pagi tak ngantuk. Uwwaaaa...I start work again tomorrow after a whole week off.

Can I have another week please???

**Editted: In the end, I had to do the test 3 times (the max amount). My last attempt was the highest score...salah satu je. Lantak ko la labu....dapat 5 ke pun MAPS in the end? Kuangkuangkuang...

Alih2 kena tangkap ngan achik aku (adik ibu), kena ugut nak bagitau ayah aku...tobat!! Quit cold turkey!! Hahaha..tapi lepas tu, time tensen exam kat Vandy, ada jugak la aku isap gak.

A Week Off

At my in laws for Raya Haji. The weather is mighty hot today. I have a headache due to lack of sleep. Poor Daria still has her cough, plus her nose is now blocked up. I can imagine the discomfort she's in. Her medication doesn't seem to be working. I think we'll need to take her back to the clinic for a follow up check up, maybe take some gas to relieve her stuffiness.

I was on leave the whole of this week, eventhough my boss did sms me to ask whether I could cut it short. Our tender evaluation and presentation has finally gotten the result and eventhough the vendor selected was not what we suggested, I just could not bring myself to care anymore. What else is new, heh? Let the work commence when I get back next week. It's gonna be nose to the grind until we launch next year. Even now there's email flying around saying that all leave applications have been frozen..yeah, right!! You want your staff to work non-stop?! Come on, give us the benefit of the doubt to arrange our leave so it won't interfere with work. Surely not everyone is going on leave on the same time.

The kids had fun at the hotel with my parents. Poor Daria couldn't swim in the pool due to her cough so had to be content to watch from the side. She was an angel most of the time, only crying when it was time to take her medicine and when she was tired.

Great, it's started raining. I guess the heat was a sign that it was going to rain this afternoon. God, I hope it rains long. I'm ready to strip naked and lounge around nude if the heat doesn't stop soon. Argghh, I think it's best I go take a bath instead. Latersss...

Updates On The Kids

I could bitch and moan about work until no end, so enough of that. Let's talk about the kids for now.

Dania is on her last week of school. Already she's asking "which hotel are we going to stay in for the holidays?" Mak ai..good thing my parents have planned such an outing for next week. 4 days at *location undisclosed*...just lounging around, playing at the pool and NOT thinking about work (if that is possible).

Dina, on the other hand, only finishes school mid December. So for next week's holiday outing, she'll have to cut classes. Good thing she's done with her finals already, only waiting for her concert on the 5th.

Daria...she's sitting up by herself already!! That baby is growing up way too quickly. Hubby shaved her head (again!!) but her hair is starting to grow back already. Yesterday we took her to get her Hep B shots and she weighs 9kg!! That's an additional 0.6kg from last month. Pergh...semangat anak ibu!! Too bad she now has a cough, thanks to Dina for sharing. Hopefully the cough will pass soon. I think this is the first time she's been sick. I would like to think that breast milk rules!!

I'll post up more pictures of the kids soon. I need to take a quick nap. Lepas ni, sesi nak kena marah lagi...uwaaaa..

It's a Damn Marathon Baby

I'm tired. So tired. We're nearly at the finish line but I just have no energy to make this final sprint. Part of me wants to just roll over and accept whatever decision is made. Part of me thinks..after 3 years doing this damn project...to let go now....

Our final battle begins and ends on the 20th. Que Sera, Sera...

Wisdom

Not the kind that I'm full of. Heh! I'm talking about this damn tooth that's trying to come out.


Dah tua bangka pun ada gigi nak tumbuh lagi?!

It started last Thursday. I woke up and noticed my right cheek was slightly swollen. I couldn't feel anything and when I tried to look inside, whatever was causing the swelling was too far back.

On Friday, the swelling had significantly increased. Plus, I had started to feel some pain. I couldn't brush my back teeth without hitting the soft spot. By lunch time, the swelling had also started to throb so I took half day off to go to the dentist. Since hubby was working in Cyber, I took the ERL there and he met me at the station.

The dentist took one look at my swollen face and made a bet, "I'm pretty sure it's your wisdom tooth."

She was right. Apparently the tooth had just started to break the gums and food had gotten trapped within. Since I couldn't brush that far back, the leftover food caused the swelling and apparently some pus.

Pus!! In my mouth!!!

Hubby is sooo gonna want to french kiss me after this.

The doctor couldn't do much, not until the swelling had subsided so she prescribed me some painkillers (I love!!) and some antibiotic (low dosage since I'm still breastfeeding). If the swelling hasn't subsided in a week, then she might recommend to do some minor surgery.

Surgery!! In my mouth!!!

I so did not sign up for this. *Sigh*.

48

That's the number of minutes I got to spend with my kids these past days. 48 minutes out of 72 hours. That's 48 minutes out of 4320 which equals to 2%.

2%!!!

Yesterday I was really worn out. Believe it or not, when I arrived at the office, I took an hour and slept in the car to recharge. Even then when I walked in the office, I was still groggy from fatigue plus other matters that I no need to mention here. Luckily I only had to be on standby for the meeting and not actually have to attend it. So for once, I got to go home on time. The best part was, when I reached home, Dania asked me, "Ibu, didn't you got o work today?"

Yep, having me come home at 12pm had become the norm for the kids. So seeing me walk in the door at 7pm was cause for celebration. I made them stay up for as long as they could on a school night and just cuddled up with them in front of the TV.

It's during times like this I wonder if my decision to be a FTWM is the right thing for my kids. But this is just seasonal. Let's hope the all the havoc and hard work pays out and things can settle back to normal.

When All She Wants Is Her Mother

Last weekend the family went back to Melaka for a wedding and my SIL's boy's 1st birthday. It was the first time we went back without bibik. Bibik gave reason to stay behind and take care of the laundry that had piled up so high due to it raining everyday. I was fine with the idea since it was only for one day anyway.

We arrived in Melaka around 12pm and went straight to the wedding for lunch. Daria was such a darling; even in the hot weather, she was smiling all the way. The food was good and the crowd was almost non-existent, so we all gobbled down happily. After filling our tummies, we headed back to my in-laws.

Around 5pm, I put Daria down for a nap and then headed to Carref00re with hubby to buy some groceries. As we were on our way back, my MIL called; Daria was crying...no, screaming her lungs out. Apparently when she woke up, she got confused and when she couldn't find me, she freaked out and started crying.

When we arrived at our in-laws, my MIL was carrying Daria and trying to console her. Clad only in a towel, my poor girl was beside herself. When she saw me, she grabbed me and held on for life. It took me 30 minutes to quiet her down and stop her crying.

Until yesterday, she wouldn't let me out of her sight. When her grandma or aunts tried to carry her, she would start crying and searching for me.

Dear Daria. Please don't fret. I would never leave you eventhough I can not always be there physically for you.

David vs Goliath

A meager manager up against a VP in a heated meeting. 10 people talking at once, trying to make their point. Results of 3 months of hard work, looked down on by the vultures above.

Result? Everyone came out bloody and tired...with no clear winner.

Another round proceeds tonight..with more nights to come.

Let's get ready to rumble!!!!

Purest of Pain

This song used to be one of my favorites during Uni years. At that time, I was dating hubby and my room mates can stand witness to the fact, we sometimes had a turbulent relationship.

Everytime we had one of our fights, I would sit in my room, switch off all the lights and listen to this song over and over again. Talk about torturing yourself!!!

But I still love this song for its lyrics and beautiful melody.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giJyPTQG9Cg

*Youtube wouldn't let me embed the video here so just follow the link


Sorry didn't mean to call you but I couldn't fight it
I guess I was weak, couldn't even hide it
And so I surrendered, just to hear your voice.

Don't know how many times I said I'm gonna live without you,
And maybe someone else is standing there beside you,
But there's something, baby that you need to know.

That deep inside me, I feel like I'm dying.
I have to see you,It's all that I'm asking.

Chorus:
Baby, give me back my fantasy.
The courage that I need to live,The air that I breathe.
Living without you, my world's become so empty.
The days are so cold and lonely
And each night I taste the purest of pain.

I wish I could tell you I'm feeling better everyday
That it didn't hurt when you walked away
But to tell that truth I can't find my way

And deep inside me, I feel like I'm dying.
I have to see you, It's all that I'm asking.

Baby, give me back my fantasy.
The courage that I need to live,The air that I breathe.
Living without you, my world's become so empty.
The days are so cold and lonely
And each night I taste the purest of pain.

Baby, give me back my fantasy.
The courage that I need to live,The air that I breathe.
Living without you, my world's become so empty.
The days are so cold, lonely
And each night I taste the purest of pain.

I'm sorry I didn't mean to call you but I couldn't fight it.
I guess I was weak, couldn't even hide it
And so I surrendered just to hear your voice.
