Ignore my previous blog post guys. I totally cheated and went to work for a couple of hours and then picked up kids from school, then went home and spent the whole day with Baby Sarah in my kain batik and socks again don’t worry haha.

But anyway! Something interesting happened when I picked Mariam up from her classroom. There was a BOY, a BOY guys. Not just any boy, but a boy who liked her and she liked him too. IT WAS SO OBVIOUS.

After she put on her shoes and took her bag, she held my hand and we walked towards the exit. The boy (let’s call him STEPAWAYFROMMYDAUGHTERPLEASEBOY) was waiting at the corridor and smiled at her as she walked towards him. I looked at my own daughter who I have changed name to IMGOINGTOTELLDADDY and this girl had the cheek to smile back. Like not just smile guys, GRIN.

cheating confinement

“I’m actually excited for confinement this time, guys. I’m so going to do it properly. I’m going to just chill and watch all the Netflix I want,” I remember saying to Toots and Mimak during pregnancy.

Well, on Day 7 I went to the office (a little detour after Sarah’s doctor’s appointment hehe) and I’ve been out everyday since. Cikyah (my confinement lady, remember her from Mariam’s pantang??) knows how stubborn and naughty I am, so this time round, she brought her suitcase and declared that she was going to stay with me the entire confinement. You should’ve seen the horror on my face… how am I going to sneak out now?!

sarah’s tahnik

Our little family did a tahnik for Sarah to celebrate her one week into this world. We did it for Daniel and Mariam before, and so the tradition continues. It was supposed to be a small do with just immediate family and best friends, but then it somehow ended up with a tent outside, we invited a few more people from the FV management team and we got catering etc… trust a bored lady in pantang to plan a small do hehe.

Sharing some pictures from the day: 

Sarah was put on the floor while our family and friends gathered to witness the tahnik ceremony. A bit of dates and a bit of honey were given to her to symbolise sweetness in her life, followed by more prayers recited by the Ustaz.

For Daniel, I remember blogging asap to announce his birth. For Mariam, I was busy adjusting to having two kids, that I took about a week to announce on my blog.

Third baby?


I’m 24 days late to announce her birth on my blog. *nervous laughter*

If you follow me on Instagram, you’d already know and you’ve seen her updates already. But just pretend to be surprised and congratulate me again ok? Also pretend that you’re seeing this photo for the first time ok….

third trimester woes

September 18, 2018 • 16 comments • 28042 views

I’m usually a cheerful and positive person (still am!) but I’ve gotta be completely honest – these last few weeks of pregnancy are proving to be super letih-licious, just like how it was for Daniel and Mariam’s pregnancy.

First trimester problems are out the door, thank God, but now third trimester problems are here – can’t find a good position to sleep which results in late night Netflix binge and sleep deprivation which results in a groggy wife in the morning which results in snapping at husband which results in #prayforfadza. Haha.
