I'm ALIVE!!!

I'm not making excuses for not blogging for almost 6 months but... Yeah, I am! Hehehe...
 
 
Honestly, it's not that bad but I'd just rather do something else like finishing my THESIS! or SLEEP! when I do have the time than writing my blog. If only I could just say the words or tell the stories and it'll blog itself. Huhuhu...
 
As in everyone else's lives I'm sure, a lot has been going on in ours too. Although, there's nothing out of this world or anything like that that happened, it's just everyday life and Aariz! ;-)
 
Since my last blog entry;
 
- We had Xmas holidays and New Year's in the Coast.
 
- My sister Yan came to visit 2nd week of January, so I finally met dear Eli!
Boys hanging out! ;)
Turns out only the mommies want to take photos! Huhuhu...

No more Eli and Che Yan... :(

- We shaved Aariz's hair. He was called a girl by strangers more than 3 times! Huhuhu..
 
Aariz before haircut.
Aariz halfway through haircut. Yeah, we didn't shave it off all at once. Huhuhu...
All gone!
- Went to Brisbane for a few times and had friends from Brisbane came to visit. :-)
 
- Aariz has yet to talk. He only says Nak (I want) and uses it for everything. We think he does  understand what we're saying and what we do. Like he'll put his cup/plates in the sink, throw rubbish in the bin, etc. And oh he imitates us. A lot! So, we're trying to be very careful not to say and do inappropriate things. Huhuhu... Oh, and Aariz's not putting on that much weight. I'm kinda worried but only when people kept commenting on that fact. Else, I think he's healthy and he'll tell me in his own kinda way when he's hungry which I can ususally tell. I know he's  getting taller though. Hhhmmm...
 
- Linda (our landlady) had a major surgery. So, we kinda helped her around the house for a bit.
 
- I bought a coffee/cappucino maker equipped with a frother for $20! It's tiny and used but I can make my own cafe styled coffee! Woohooo!!! 
 
No more spending $$$ on coffee!! Hehehe...
 - Finally had Aariz sent to a babysitter while I help with my supervisor with teaching. All's good! Phew! ;-)
 
- Mr.Hubby said Goodbye to his hair after almost 2 years!!! Huhuhu..
 
- We just applied for an extension of our current visa. So, we are on bridging visa which means we can't leave Oz until it is approved. Or we can, but risked having problems for when we want to re-enter Oz.
 
See, nothing major. I cannot believe though how time flies although some moments do tend to go on forever. Huhuhu...
 
Hah! I am so over my studies but it won't finish by itself!
I am at the moment feeling guilty for the times not spent with Mr.Hubby and Aariz. Like today; It's Sunday, very nice weather (after a week of non-stop rain!), could have gone to the beach, etc. But no. I am in Uni and I have no idea want they're doing. *sigh*
I know Mr.Hubby's kinda homesick and can't wait to go home but I really wish he's really happy deep down inside. And I truly hope whatever Aariz remembers from these past few years of my crazy life are only great happy memories. Huhuhu...
Well, before I start rambling unnecessarily, I'd better wrap this up and continue with school work! ;-)
 
Fishing along the river! ;-)
 
 Cheers!

Baby sister has a baby. Really???!!!

Whoa!!! Almost 5 months of not blogging?! Well, I tried. There must be almost a dozen of drafts that didn't quiet make it. Hopefully this one does! Ahakss!!! Better make this a quick one! ;-)

As for life goes these past couple of months; A LOT has happened! I supposed it's pretty much the same for everyone else, eh?! Huhuhu...

The highlight and probably what prompted me to get an entry in my blog is... My lil sister had her baby!!! Woohooo!!!! Still can't believe it. Seen photos, talked to my sister on the phone and all, but I really wish I could be there right this moment! *sigh* 
Anyways, CONGRATULATIONS Limah & Naeim!!! So so happy for you both! Alhamdulillah mum & bub (and dad too, i think! hee..) are doing fine. ;-)

GERAMNYEEE!!!! :-) Muhammad Rafiqi - October 30th, 2012.
My sister, Yan also gave birth to her second child; a baby boy. Baby Eli. It's kinda old news but I haven't met the lil guy yet. ;-( I hope to meet him soon though!
 Don't you just love newborn babies?!!!!
Lots of hugs & kisses!!!

Cheers!

Happy birthday, Aariz!

Aariz is one!

Too quick! 
He was born on June 16th at 7.36pm. So, around this time last year, Mr.Hubby, Aariz and I were probably still in the birth suite. Aariz was probably just finished his feed and being cuddled by Mr.Hubby and me getting all stitched up. Feels like it was ages ago and yet I still remember everything like it was yesterday.

Today, we did not have a big birthday party or anything like that. We didn't even planned anything. I personally wasn't so sure if anyone would come anyways. Huhuhu... Yesterday, Mr.Hubby and I prayed our evening prayers together and read the Yassin and some Tahlil/Doa Selamat (Quran citations and prayers); Thanking God for Aariz, his health and everything for the past year and for the years to come. Alhamdulillah, InsyaAllah, Ameen. I made some Pulut Kuning with some boiled quail eggs this morning and Mr.Hubby cooked some beef curry. It has always been a tradition of our family to cook the yellow glutinous rice for special occasions. My late Grandmother would always make it for our birthdays and other celebrations. I didn't bake a cake today. It's just me and Mr.Hubby. Chocolate eclairs tomorrow? Maybe. ;-) We didn't do much today apart from going to the market to get some meat.
2-tier yellow glutinous rice with boiled quail eggs. :-)
One hand...
Two hands...
Hhmmmm... ;-)
Linda gave Aariz an early birthday present yesterday. And this afternoon, Helen, Linda's sister came by and gave her present for Aariz. They both are such lovely people!
Yippeee!!!
Playing with Linda's gift.
Present from Helen...
I rolled the doggie over so he can have a sleep, Mama... ;-)
CikYan texted and called. Thank you for the birthday wish! Our dear friend, Jannah also texted and wished Aariz a happy birthday. Oh, thank you for the wish on Facebook CikLimah!
It's been a month now since Aariz started to walk. And he is walking everywhere, all the time! The only time his not moving about is when his asleep. Well, he does roll over and spin around while his sleeps sometimes. Heh...

Happy birthday, Aariz!

Cheers!
