2011 wrap up.

Hi all !
Linn is taking care of Khayla while I take some time off to give you all a gist on what has happened in my life throughout 2011, like I did last year.
  1. On January 9 this year, Mr. Sunshine and I turned one, Alhamdulillah. My Mr. Sunshine is the best ! :))
  2. I got pregnant (Alhamdulillah) and gained a whopping 16 kgs throughout my pregnancy ! Well I actually found out I was pregnant in December last year but waited after my first trimester to let the cat out of the bag. :)
  3. I turned 27, and as usual Mr Sunshine had some surprises for me. Mr. Sunshine turned 26 this year, and I conveniently forgot to blog about it ! I bought him a HP Pavilion notebook, because his PC was giving him so much trouble. :)
  4. Craved a whole lot of food that weren't available in Terengganu.
  5. The family came over for another visit this year and we had a blast ! ;D
  6. Almost went through a nervous breakdown. Haha.
  7. I made my first curry puff this year ! Hehe.
  8. In June, we found out we were having a baby girl which was due in August. :)
  9. I was warded for a night (and traumatized) due to a fall.
  10. Mr. Sunshine and I had our babymoon in Colmar Tropicale, Bukit Tinggi.
  11. I went through 21 hours of labour and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Dian Khayla on August 13. Alhamdulillah.
  12. The week after my baby was born, I was offered a job as a pharmacist in UiTM, Alhamdulillah.
  13. Marc and Linn got married ! Alhamdulillah. :))
  14. I got my resignation from KKM and pelepasan dengan izin approved yesterday, Alhamdulillah, and will be reporting for duty in UiTM next Tuesday, InshaAllah.

This year, I'm ushering in the year 2012 with my family here in Gombak. Mr. Sunshine is in Terengganu because he has to work tomorrow. I miss him tremendously ! Sobs. :(

May 2012 be a better year for all of us, InshaAllah.
Happy New Year everyone ! :)

Hi, I'm still sad as hell about losing my photos.
Is this a sign that I should quit blogging ? 

Mr. Sunshine says that I'm lucky that I still have my written posts, and to lose them is far worse.
I guess he's right.

Oh well.

i accidentally deleted all my photos !

Hello everyone, hope all of you are having a good day.

I'm currently mourning over the fact that I accidentally deleted ALL my photos which were uploaded on my blog. That's 4 years worth of memories ! So far there's no way of recovering them. *nangis*
I'm not exaggerating when I say I'm devastated.

OK bye.

what i'll miss.

I can't believe that in less than a week's time I'll be saying goodbye to Kuala Berang  ! I am definitely looking forward to being back in my hometown, but I've gotta admit there are a few things about being in Terengganu that I am gonna miss.
  1. The beach - I love the fact that we're just minutes away from the beach. It just takes a drive by the beach to calm my senses. 
  2. Keropok lekor - Trust me, once you've tasted the original keropok lekor from Terengganu, you wouldn't want to even smell the ones back in KL.
  3. Laksam Terengganu - Ahhh, I absolutely love this dish ! I know I am gonna crave this when I get back.
  4. No traffic jam - I guess this goes without saying. 
  5. Short distance from workplace - My current workplace is only a 5-minute walk away from where I stay, which is awesome.
  6. Colleagues and friends - I am gonna miss the people I've gotten to know over here; too many to mention here but there's no doubt that I'll be thinking about every single one of you beautiful souls. Sobs.
I've spent two years of my life here and I've learned so much. Before I came here, I've never even knew the existence of the Hulu Terengganu district !
I shall forever treasure all the memories, the good ones and the bad not so good ones. Thank you Allah for the opportunity to learn to be independent (without relatives nearby) and also for all the good & bad experiences I have been blessed with throughout these 2 years.
To all my friends, colleagues and acquaintances from Terengganu, thank you so much for everything !

Here's to new beginnings. InshaAllah.

dian khayla - 4 months progress report

My baby girl is 4 months old already ! Alhamdulillah, and MashaAllah she never fails to amaze me everyday. Khayla currently weighs 6.3 kgs, Alhamdulillah.

She can hold her head up pretty steadily now, and she tends to turn her head to the right, left, up and down to look at EVERYTHING, hence carrying her is a bit of a challenge these days. She's such a curious little baby !

She's also very easily distracted, she would turn to look the second she hears a sound or sees light. And because of that, breastfeeding is not so easy anymore. She can already use her hands to grasp things and she's putting that to full use by grabbing anything that's in her sight (including my hair, ouch !). She seems to be enjoying putting things into her mouth too.

She would beg (read: cry) for us to carry her around the house when she's bored of lying and rolling on her mattress. Yes, she can roll over from lying on her back to the front too, but that talent still needs a little brushing up. Hehe. She almost gave me a heart attack when she rolled off her mattress onto the carpet yesterday morning !

During the past month, she has stopped taking long naps during the day, like she used to. Even when she's in her cradle - she would have 30 to 45-minutes naps, 3 to 4 times a day. But Alhamdulillah she goes to bed earlier these days, around 2300 hours to midnight, and wakes up once or twice for milk.

She gets tickled when we make funny noises or blow at her tummy and neck. But she's also an expert at staring blankly at us when we try to make her smile/laugh. We call that look the "Whatever!" or "That's not funny, Mummy/Ayah!" look, which looks something like the photo below. Hehe.

I think that's about it for this month's update, I can't wait to discover other surprises Dian Khayla has for Mr. Sunshine and I. :))

and we're packing.

I have been on leave for three weeks now, to finish what's left of my annual leave this year.

I am in the midst of packing up and will be moving out of here by the end of next week, InshaAllah. We have stopped sending Khayla to the babysitter since early this month, making me a temporary SAHM. Mum in-law was here last week, so I had a helping hand in getting most of our stuff into boxes, Alhamdulillah.

There are about 10 boxes so far.

As next week approaches, I am slowly starting to feel a bit pensive. It's gonna be tough being apart from Mr. Sunshine. :'( I can only pray that he gets transferred to KL/Selangor ASAP. Ameen.
I've gotta get my emotions in check because I don't want Mr. Sunshine to get all worried because of me. I've gotta be strong !
It must be even harder for Mr. Sunshine, being away from not only his family, but me (cewah !) & Khayla as well. *nangis*

I have spoken to the person in the Ministry of Health's HR department who is in charge of my pelepasan dengan izin and she is trying to speed up the process. I need to report for duty in UiTM in January, by hook or by crook !

I miss Mr. Sunshine already ! Is this normal ??

I shall go sit in one corner and mope until Khayla wakes up.
