Today I...




Some random things about the last day of 2013

* I am enjoying my day off from work. Come to think of it I don’t think I ever work on the last day of the year
* I am making a personal goals to make two Project Life album in 2014. One will be a hardcopy version and the other one would be a digital version
* I am still making some last minute shopping before new year comes
* I am still nursing my baby boy. I need to start weaning him off very slowly because he get very stubborn when it comes to nursing
* I already have my word for 2014
* I still have a lot of photos to process, backup and prepare for 2014
* I plan to join project 365 for 2014
* I enrolled my kids at a nearby class
* I ate durian with my kids. It was the best durian ever!
* I am wondering why I haven't had enough rest even though I'm on vacation
* I am disappointed with the movie"Ular" - somehow all the characters lack soul and I didn't feel sad or disappointed when they died

12 posts of 2013 // A year in review

I had such an amazing year. So many things happening behind the scene which some them I shared in this blog and some are too personal to share here. Overall I can feel that I am growing as a person and as a human being. I feel more content and I know what I want and I am thankful for what I have.

1. This year as always, on the first January 2013, we took a family photo shoot at KLCC. This time Hanif is with us

4. Things that was on my mind most of the time this year. I just realise that this year I didn’t blog much about anything random like I used to. I intend to blog more post randomly just because I think it was fun to read things that are totally random

5. I participate in 30 days of lists for March, September and December  in 2013. I just love documenting my life in a list. It’s fun, easy and absolutely no wrong way of doing it

6. No matter how frustrated and depressed I was this year, I try to focus may energy and mind to little things that makes me happy. Somehow these things magically lift up my mood and spirit tremendously.

10. Without realising it I have a toddler in the house. Living with a toddler is so much fun and deciphering a toddler language really require focus and attention. I am enjoying every moment of it.

11. I made another Ramadan Photo daily prompt this year and it is still super fun. I am thinking of making this a yearly project. I also made a Ramadan Goals as a way for me to focus and cross things off my lists.

12. I was super duper excited that this year I got a chance to meet and hear Jay Jay sang live in front of me. It was such an amazing feeling and it brought a lot of beautiful memories from my childhood.

I hope that 2014 will be great and amazing. I want to write more next year either on my blog or in my journal. Not all of the things can be captured on photos, some you have to write it down. Hope you had a great 2013. See you in 2014

Boba everywhere

It has been more than a year since I decided to buy boba baby carrier. It was the best investment I have ever made when it comes to baby's gadget.
Now more than a year later, boba baby carrier, my baby and me have been every where. It is such a portable, comfortable and convenient baby carrier ever. I am loving it and I highly recommend this brand. It can carry your baby either on the front or on your back and it can carry up to 20 kg.

Here were a few places I have carried or other family member have carried my baby using boba baby carrier.

Right now, my baby's weight is about 10kg and it is still bearable to carry him around. I can see that we will keep using boba baby carrier beyond his second birthday.

It's the last Friday of 2013

Wow! What a great year?! It is definitely a roller coaster ride for me.
My life took a different turn this year. I am sure glad and happy for all the good and the great things that happened in my life so far. The things that I thought would never happen, happened and I am still pinching myself to make sure that this is not a dream.


Right now, as I am typing this post, I am listening to the sound of waves and the children laughing in the pool. The weather is great for swimming, not too hot and not too cold. I am having a vacation with my family, away from our normal life and away from work. It's just nice to wake up early in the morning not have to worry about getting to the meeting room on time.

* some photos from our trip to Gua Niah, Miri, Sarawak








I just can't imagine how people can live in a dark cave and feel safe. It was a little bit scary for me. I imagine this place like a cave I once visit when I was in the States, with lights and safe passage. Boy was I wrong! It was a challenging journey.


And this is the view from where I sat and journal early in the morning.


I am feeling a little bit sad to leave 2013. I am so looking forward to a great year in 2014. I am hoping that I can put behind all those "scary" times and live my life as I am suppose to, with my family (complete).

#thursday3 // 26.12.2013

It's thursday and it's time for another Thursday Three selfie project.

"Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done."excerpt from http://rukristin.com

HERE IS MY PHOTO AND FACTS FOR THE WEEK


1. I am on a long vacation leave with my family. I don't really care where I am as long as I am with my family.
2. My first trip to Gua Niah, Miri, Sarawak. It was such an adventure for us, town folks. If only I was 5 years younger, I might walk till the end of the cave.
3. I am feeling a little bit nostalgic. Somehow this road trip brings back the memories when we were younger, traveling across the United States to visit each other.

Follow along each week using the hashtag #thursday3 dan taged me @hanizeyecandy. I want to see your selfie and read about you.

4 Simple Goals : An update

4simplegoals2013

At the end of October, I shared with you my 4 Simple Goals before 2014. I have every bit of intention of checking things off my lists by the end of they year.

I am glad that I put doing Insanity workout program on the lists, other wise I might not have started the program at all. I am currently on week five and six. Originally I planned to finished with this program by the end of the year but I am taking at least one week off this week because we will be on our family vacation.

For my number 3 and 4 goals, comes hand in hand. I did managed to print out lots of photos and do fun project together with my daughter. We are making a smash book of our random 2013 photos. It is so much fun when you share the same interest as your daughter.

Ever since I realized that my coupon codes expired on February 2014, I have been putting this project on hold. I intend to continue making the book after I get back from my vacation. I might be able to finish them at least by the first week of January and have them printed out before end of January.
