anak ayah

saya membesar dengan menjadi anak kesayangan ayah.

apa nak semua dapat. tapi tak semestinya tak pernah kena marah. ayah marah lepas tu cepat2 pujuk balik.

my dad and myself macam ada satu unexplained connection. macam kalau saya tiba2 tak sihat, time2 tuhla ayah akan call. macam tahu-tahu je saya sakit.

macam jugak kalau rasa tiba2 nak call ayah, time tuhla dapat tahu ayah tak berapa sihat.

sejak akhir-akhir ni, kelihatan ayah uzur sangat. kurus sangat. makan pon tak berapa lalu.

mata ayah pon dah tahap teruk. kadang2 kabur, kadang tak nampak. sedih bila tengok ayah.

3 years back, mata ayah pon teruk jugak, tapi masih dapat lihat. ayah cakap ayah tahu macam mana muka lica masa kecik. at least dapat jugak ayah nampak masa saya kahwin. dapat jugak ayah jadi wali saya. alhamdulillah.



sedih. sebab sekarang ayah macam tak mengaku ayah tak tahu macam mana muka humaira, muka hana.

lagi sedih sebab there's nothing much i can do except i will try to spend time dengan ayah. nak bawak pergi jalan pon ayah tak interested sangat. tempat baru lagi susah ayah nak move.

kadang2 balik hujung minggu pon ayah banyak berehat kat dalam bilik. penat dengan dialisis lagi.

ah, alangkah baiknya jika tidak berkahwin. boleh duduk dengan ayah. boleh berbakti dekat ayah.

sekarang hanya dapat bawak cucu2 balik ke rumah.

tak tahu kenapa, tapi saya sedih sangat lepas cakap dengan ayah tadi.

main masak - masak : Humaira's Favourite Lasagna

Lasagna is one of Humaira's favourite food. It's so easy to sneak in veges and most of the time she finishes her bowl (I put into small ramekins for her)



This is my first try so I think I need to add more veges like zucchini or mushrooms next time..hmm but i think i need to improve on the meat sauce

very simple recipe...

for the meat sauce u need:-
red onion, garlic, leek, carrot, minced beef (or chicken), chopped tomatoes (i have the canned type, so im using that one), tomato puree, fresh tyhme, olive oil


first step. heat the olive oil, saute onion, leek and carrot. make sure carrot and leek (esp.) soft..saute about 10mins. medium heat ye. then add the garlic , cook for about 1-2 min. set aside.

then brown the minced beef over a high heat.then add everything (all the ingredients above)..bring to boil..reduce the heat and simmer or 30mins until thickened.

for the cheese sauce. u need butter, cornflour, milk, gruyere cheese, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, dijon mustard.


to make the cheese sauce, put the butter, cornflour and milk. medium heat and stirring constantly until sauce comes to boil and thickens. simmer for 1-2mins, remove from heat and stir the mustard and the 3 cheese until smooth.

layer the lasagna ( i use the instant ones sebab pemalas) ..meat sauce and cheese sauce ikut suka hati :P

sprinkle over the parmesan, bake for 30 mins ( since i use small ramekins i only bake 25mins max, most of the time lesser than that ) until golden brown on top.


mummies, cubalah. the cheese sauce mmg sedap. but the meat sauce tu macam ada something yg lacking. original resepi ada balsamic vinegar. ppl commented in my facebook cakap tak boleh guna balsamic vinegar sebab tak halal. i dont know, ive consumed before tapi sebab now dah was-was i stop using it.

i will try again this weekend with some additional ingredients. will let you know the final result.

main masak-masak : nectarines and apples

hai. lama tak update. tiba-tiba nak show off skills memasak .. haha

since hana dah genap 6 bulan..(bulan ogos), i ada cuba-cuba  beberapa resepi..dah ada dapur sendiri ni, takkan taknak biar berasap sikit kan. masak untuk suami kadang2 je sebab tak hebat so cuba-cuba resepi untuk anak-anak je.

tried a few and yg i post ni (more coming soon!) one of hana's favourite!

nectarines and apples.



ini memang ikut resepi annabel karmel. easy peasy. sedap. dan campak2 je.

mula2 beli apples, nectarines and butter.

dalam resepi suruh pakai epal hijau. tapi saya takde epal hijau. pakai apa yang ada. better use unsalted butter tapi hanya ada buttercup je dalam fridge. nectarines ada banyak jenis. kaler putih la kaler kuning la. sejujurnya saya tidak pernah makan nectarines sebelum ini, so first time guna, beli yang jenis isi putih (sebab murah sikit, heh)


lepas tu buang kulit and ambil isi (nectarines & apples). dalam resepi ada letak couple of spoon of apple juice. itupon i takde dalam fridge. apa yang anda boleh buat, potong epal macam biasa (cubes/ chopped or buat la apa shj, just make sure skin off) letak dalam blender letak air sikit...blend sikit so dapat la "apple juice" tu sikit. hehehe

panaskan kuali, letak butter sikit (sikit je, taknak rasa "buttery" sgt), letak epal dan "apple juice" yang dah di blend.

lepas tu boleh letak nectarines.


kacau kacau kacau.

hm...boleh tunggu sampai nectarines and apples tu hancur..






medium heat saje sebab taknak sampai apples and nectarines tu mcm "terkaramel".....

lepas tu boleh blend or kalau baby anda dah besar sikit die boleh kunyah2...


verdict: sedap, manis. my advice, pilih epal dan nectarine yg macam dah masak sikit...


cubalah!

uh hello?

hello. ah nampaknya blog ni macam dah bersawang. lama jugak tak menjenguk blog orang lain. ada yang dah kahwin. ada yang dah beranak. ada yang dah beli rumah. dan ada juga yang masih tahap sama. untuk saya, semuanya sama sahaja. kehidupan sebagai seorang isteri, anak dan mummy ni tak pernah sama. sama ada terlalu happy. atau terlalu penat.

betul kata orang, rezeki tu dalam macam2 bentuk.

anak masih dua. dua-dua sihat. dua-dua membesar dengan jayanya. alhamdulillah.

ah, rasanya macam dah kena start balik memblog ni. nak cari masa nak blog tu agak mencabar. heh.

till then, adios.

eh sebelum tu, meh tepek gambar humaira paling latest.





lepas ni nak tulis apa pulak ye?

"how is it having two kids?"

Ok let see..

1. So far pergi mana2 still ok. we just make sure Humaira had enough sleep before leaving and Hana is sleeping before we leave. i can foresee that we need another stroller but not now...as for now, going out with these two girls still manageable. phew!

2.Nasib baik im staying with the in laws. Whether they help to feed Humaira or my Husband. as for Hana, she accepts both breasts and bottle . PHew! No nipple confusing. Ah I hope that stays forver, babygirl.

3.Bedtime. Both sleep through the night. Alhamdulillah.

So far so good kan? okay i have to stop now. Hana and Humaira dah bangun.

syukur

a friend of mine had a baby a week ago. and the baby dies.

ah can you imagine? carrying a baby in your womb for 9 months and then a week later the baby gone? just like that. it made me realize how lucky i was. i had a smooth pregnancy..and the labour wasnt that long!. alhamdulillah.

our paychecks not that high. we dont drive fancy cars. but true, rezeki tu ada di mana2. for my case, both my girls are my rezeki generator.

humaira is so me. she reminds of me. she's my mini me. sometimes i wish she has asri's chracter. my husband is very patient. i wish she follow that trait but no. she screams. and yes, she bites. but i love her no matter what.  she loves gymboree. no i havent sign her up yet. last week we went to bangsar village and she saw the gymboree she was literally running and say yeay. and when she realized we werent going to that place..abes..buat scene. i think the owner recognizes asri and asri walked off cepat2. yes i plan to send her there soon. soon? i dont know how soon is soon. heh

her vocab has grown tremendously. she can say abah. meme. mak. cino. acap. ginger. grey. angah. as. atuk. rice. nose. eyes. adik hana. okay and she call herself gegirl. she loves cats. she loveessss dogs. she loves park. she enjoys outdoor activities. she loves shoes and bags. (told ya, she's me) we havent potty train hr yet but whenever she wants to shishi or yak yak she will say the word. sometimes when she farts pon die cakap yak yak. ha ha.and she loves her adik. (sometimes)

baby hana pulak is such a sweetheart. i can say, its very easy to take care of her. and its so easy to bring her to the mall. not fussy at all. ah, i hope that stays forever. did i mention she is a valentine baby? now, we've got a reason to celebrate the day! haha

ive only have like three weeks left before going back to the office. gah, we havent decide where to send baby hana yet. we've got couple of places to choose. there are pros and cons. we just need extra time to think.

never in my wild dreams i thought i will have two babies in less than three years. fast or fertile or whatever you called that- i think both of my girls are the best gifts i could have asked for.  syukur sangat :)


precious

time really flies when we are having a goood time. i didnt enjoy my confinement..but am not complaining either. i get to go out. i get to go to bsc (almost every week) confinement was pretty okay basically...and of course i didnt get my shape back--but who cares? i still have few days left -ive lost count already

i tell you what. having a baby and another baby (humaira still a baby haha) memang penat. super penat. alhamdulillah im staying with the in laws and they helpppp a lot. cant imagine living with these two girls later dekat rumah sendiri.

i miss my blog. got tons of stories to share. will try to find time.

Humaira & Hana

maid, helper, etc

there this one indon lady who wants to work for me. as a maid. i dont mind paying her a lot because my baby likes her. the best part is, sekarang ni humaira happy betul sampai dekat nursery. so i dont have to worry leaving her at the nursery sampai pukul 8 pon. she eats well, plays well, sleeps well. bad part is.. well, my baby suka sangat dengan indon ni.

oh well.

so we have officially berpindah di rumah baru. rumah dah lama siap. rumah dah lama di deco. now after a while we decided to sleep at the house. tapi hujung minggu sahaja.. hahaha. ala, lepas abes pantang, kitaorg will move for good, insyaallah.

so having a stranger in the house tak best. i dont get to do what i love to do. i dont like other people to do the laundry. my tekak cannot accept makanan tak sedap. and if i were to hire her, i cannot tinggalkan her with my babies dekat rumah. my house to my workplace memang jaaaaaauhh.

but humaira likes her a lot. so i get to do stuff i like at my own house. baking. cleaning, gardening - eh tak. but then whats the purpose of having a maid if im the one yang buat kerja segala. welll, apparently i need a maid to jaga my babies kejap2 je.

suami is not keen having a maid in our house also (yeah, although he's so used having one at his parents house). if only we stay in kl, i think no trouble kot.

so far, i still okay lagi. my husband helps a lot- he cleans the house. he takes care of humaira while mummy is busy doing something else- sleeping for eg.  now that im so sarat, kadang2 termengah2 masak (yes, i cook ladies!- finally)

pasal baby no 2, we still havent decide nak mintak siapa jaga nanti. we have checked few known places yg boleh jaga infant and ya allah, price macam nak masuk school mahal je. but if thats the only choice, we have to bear with it.. humaira punye nursery pon dah almost 850 including ot and all. oh anak2, no new car for us this year. and this place we checked cost around 1.3k per month. faints. there goes my salary...perhaps i need to find a housewife or a babysitter yang nak jaga baby.....

husband, i think we need to find a second house already. that is closer to our workplace.....

hello, blog!

ahhh... sekejap je masa berlalu. tuptaptuptap. humaira lahir. pastu dah besar. pastu mummy pregnant lagi. pastu now mummy dah 33 weeks. if baby decide to pop out at 37th week (macam humaira)..then er,, tinggal less than 4 week to go. errrr...that fast?

and apprently baby is bigger than humaira. i remeber masa pregnantkan humaira dulu, dekat 36minggu pon die masih 2 kilo. pastu keluar 2.49kilo. tapi takpe, whether my baby big or small, chubby or not chubby asalkan cukup sifat, sihat...alhamdulillah....

so, let see, we have booked her baby cot. its small. apprently abah wants her daughter to have bigger cot- ala, yg boleh tukar jadi bed tu..butttt, i said no..sebab that is expensive, and we never know whether this baby wants to sleep alone ke tak (or in real case, ehem mummy). so we bought a cheap one first..so kalau she's ok with it, we will get a bigger and better one for our house.

ive found my makcik confinement. but cannot book lama. so i need to find another makcik confinement. got lots of names (thanks to zura!)..and i can feel im gonna love my confinement nanti...ha ha ha...so yeah, im looking forward to this one. nasib baik my makcik confinement not into jamu.. she's all into fresh stuff...so i think shouldnt be any problem because, i dont eat jamu. will share her info kalau i happen to like her :)

baju baby. yes, finally husband agreed to get some new clothes although baju humaira banyak gileeeeee. but like i said i have trouble with butang romper tu. ade ke patut za altera nak charge rm10/button. gilo ke ape. so probably minggu ni nak cekidaud pertama complex..mana tahu ada yg boleh buat dan murah.. and last week beli baju baby.. phew, banyak jugak beli...

ramai yg tanya, so masa confinement nanti humaira stay dekat rumah ke.. oh no, i still send her to nursery. clearly, she loves the nursery. the place, nothing fancy..but i think she loves the kids there. so as long as she's happy, im happy. lagipun..kasilah mummy bermesra dengan baby kan.. hahaha.. okayla, actually i dont mind having her kat rumah, just takut nanti tak cukup masa je nak entertain humaira. sejak berjalan ni..aktif sungguh...

so...apart from that, takdelah cerita menarik.. nanti ade masa will share cerita kitaorg gi zoo negara, gi farm in the city... tgkla, kalau ada masa...

till then, have a wonderful wednesday everyone :)

prepping for baby no 2

my first pregnancy was a breeze- I would never have known I was pregnant! however I am 22 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby, and this pregnancy has been completely opposite.

I'm still sick. still coughing. flu. one week ok. another week not ok. now not ok. this drives me crazy. everytime pergi hospital check blood..and dr said im completely fine except for normal flu. duhh

ahhh..on the happy side,  husband said that we need to start "sourcing" for new stuff for baby no 2!

humaira punye baju banyak sgt...so i think pakai baju kakak gegirl balik shouldnt be a problem. will add some but tunggu waktu sale (ah mothercare sale starts today. yums)

few things that i need for baby no #2

1. baby cot.
yes you read me. i need baby cot. i can't handle two babies on my bed. humaira is so used sleeping in between and sangat lasak! king bed memang dah tak jadi jadi king dah. so, i need to train baby no#2 sleeping alone. (okay im such a bad mummy)

2. introducing formula milk
again you read me. i know im such a bad mother for baby no 2. i know the importance of mummy's milk. i fully support breastfeeding. if only i pass the tandem technique i will continue to bf baby no 2. or else she needs to take fm as well. (bad bad mummy)

3. stroller
i need that donkey! duhh but bugaboo wont be in my list. so expensive lah. boleh lepas beli handbag celine tu. haha. but yeah i need double stroller tapi bukan phil and ted. or else, ill just buy a cheap ones macam mclaren yg travel tu. surprisingly sekarang ni, humaira suka sangat duduk & tidur dalam stroller die. like she knows someone is going to replace her place!

4. maid
yes i need young, well trained maid. the one with uniforms. usually kalau kita jalan2 kat klcc ke bsc ke we will find these maids ..ha ha. i just found out that we need to pay at least 15k to that agency to have that kind of maid. gila kan. hahaha. if only money grows on trees.

that's all for now.
