I am waiting for hubby to reach home (now at 12.40am) after his flight slightly delayed, trying very hard to keep my eyes open and perhaps composing a new post for my blog.

But this girl....
who insists to stay awake waiting for her father, could not stop talking..... aaaarrrgghhh heavy conversation in the middle of the night arrrrgghhhh

among her questions (for the other questions, i just nod and say "ye...ye") 1- kenapa semua kawan erina berbeza dari erina? 2- nescaya tu apa?

okey... I could not recall the earlier questions .... not paying enough attention in this drowsy state....

masterchef australia season 5

Image
YES!!!!!! A new season of MasterChef Australia....

The only MasterChef version that have varieties of contestants... it feels like a worldwide version of MasterChef as there are contestants with background of east asia, india, china, south east asia, italy and of course australia. This have make the food prepared in MasterChef consists influence from those countries which make the show very worth to watch and follow. You do not believe me?? You can watch the show Masterchef Australia season 5 which now showing at Lifetime, Astro Channel 709, at 7pm and 11pm every weekdays or perhaps you can get the recipe here.

But what I like most about MasterChef Australia is their 3 judges. Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston. Not only they are very qualified (have restaurants, cooking awards and write cookbooks) but their manner while judging is very loveable. They always pushing the contestants to be at their best in a very good manner. And their bantering with each other is quite f…

Sunnah2 nabi yang mudah diamalkan

Hasil dari tazkirah pagi di IKIM FM Sunnah-sunnah nabi yang mudah untuk diamalkan:1- membaca bismillah sebelum memulakan semua benda... Nak duduk pun elok baca bismillah2- memberi salam kepada semua orang... Walaupun kita tak kenal orang tersebut3- senyum itu sedekah4- mengclearkan apa sahaja yg menjd halangan dlm perjalanan... Contoh buang sampah yg berada di tgh jlnSenang je kan nak dpt pahala lebih :)

so loooonnnnnggggg not writing on this blog
as usual have been very busy in living my life and have to sacrifice the little time for myself to sit down pondering about the life and write it down in this blog.
I have learned a lot during my 'hibernation mode' that I think it would be worth sharing with all of you:

1- whatever you have learnt, you should take action on or be 'nike' 
( just do it) 

2- whatever other great people teach you... only you yourself can implement those tips/idea into your life

for example: if you like/save/hashtag those exercise picture, you would not ever be fit or thinner unless you do those exercises yourself... this is a reminder for myself ;p

3- must seek the positive from all the situations even though it requires hardwork

and.... the most important lesson of all time....

4-allah is the best planner (borrow my colleague's advice
)





kids do say the darnest thing

cara pemikiran budak2 adalah suci murni... dan selalunya adalah sangat lurus... so sometimes in a way it becomes funny to us, the adults.

thus, the below is the collection  from my kids

Situasi aiman &; erina bergaduh dlm kereta
Aiman: erina ni buat abg naik angin lah
Me: aiman ni tau ke makna naik angin?
Aiman: kesabaran hilang, kemarahan muncul

***************************************************************

During dinner 
Aiman: ibu, aiman xleh nak buka mulut besar.... Ada benda ( sambil tunjuk dlm pipi) 
Me: oh... Ulser... Nanti minum air kosong bnyk2
Aiman: tapi aiman takleh nak mengaum....
Me: mengaum???? Nganga lah... 
Hahaha

one day, i was going to be back from office late than usual, so i called the kids and said that probably i would be back by 9pm or 10pm. However there were some disruptions and the work only finished by 11pm, so when i call them again:

Healthy work habits

Image
Taken from here but it makes me wondering.... why they always said the best breakfast is yogurt or cereal or muesli... why it must be only those western breakfast is good? why not malaysian food? nasi lemak should be okay if we only take it once in a while, right? whats wrong if we have dim sum, chee chor fun, tosai or kuih apam for breakfast? those imported cereal or muesli are very expensive and it is really not good for local economy///

Healthy work habits By SU-ANN CHIEN
suann.chien@leaderonomics.com The stereotypical work day starts from 9am and ends at 5pm officially, but in reality, most employees enter the office while the sky is still dark and leave only after it gets dark again. An ILO expert on working hours was quoted in BBC’s 2012 article “Who works the longest hours…

Money money money is certainly not a monkey business

The summary of what I read here with the full article below.

1- 55% - Essential Account (whatever that we NEED to pay)
2- 15% - Emergency Account (but I have read somewhere the best benchmark is 6 months of cost of living but probably 3 months is much more easier to be prepared)
3- 10% - Golden Goose Account(passive income)
4- 10% - Education Account ( I always miss this out)
5- 10% - Fun Account( we must live happily)


So do you manage your money this way for now?

this year raya was celebrated moderately... as both of us (hubby and I) was swarmed with work during Ramadan and before Ramadan and after Ramadan...hahahha it means all the time...

luckily I have bought 'kain' baju kurung wayyyy before Ramadan so less hassle during Ramadan shopping spree. I purposely do the same set of baju kurung for both daughters and myself... bila lagi nak jd kumpulan nasyid kan... as usual, I requested my MIL to sew our baju kurungs and as usual because we are family, our order will always be the last one to be completed... heheh however this year Erina have developed an effective strategy by sitting beside her grandmother and kept asking "Nenek dah jahit baju raya Erina ke?" hahaha then Nenek become soft hearted and directly sew her baju kurung... and then Zahira just standing beside nenek and buat muka comel so Nenek pun buat baju dia jugak hahahhaha... kesian my MIL ;p
this year we spent the first raya at my mom's house. as usual, malam r…

Ramadhan is already near the end... oh how I will miss it... hopefully we can meet again with the next Ramadhan...  Anyway, the upcoming Raya also means a long holiday for some, so please take the necessary precaution measures to have your home and belongings safe as per article below...

And do not forget to recite Ayatul Qursi while locking your doors as we tawakkal to Allah to safeguard the house. That is what I have practiced all this while. You can check about the benefits here.

Okey here is the article on how to safeguard your house which I take from The Star
