Baby, let's talk about babies

Babies... have I mentioned before how earlier this year I had a yearning to have a baby? Yep, my maternal instincts was on an unusual high that point that I told Alphatin, 'Can I skip the marriage part and just have a baby without a daddy?'

Crazy, I know especially coz of religious reasons and I don't have any suicidal thoughts in my brain. Haha! But I think it's normal at times for one to suddenly feel like a baby would make life more meaningful. The only difference in this case is, I didn't want to get married (at the moment when the thought came on), and I didn't think I need anyone to "help" me get the baby (if you know what I mean). I would've been glad to just get preggers on my own (clinically done) or even to just adopt. But of course I'm not totally insane. Although I did give it some thought, especially on how to get a child that's my own without having a baby-daddy or having to get married, I do realise that financially any baby I would have would not be super-duper happy or laden with the comforts I had as a child in my current state of affairs.

So... baby project for me is on hold till the next pang, which I hope would be when I actually have a husband or just about to be married. Thanks!

But talking about babies wasn't to end there... As it turns out, my sister Buffy and BIL got preggers in early July of this year. I'm gonna be an aunt again!! So I might not have a baby of my own but my sister, InsyaAllah, will have one of her own come February 2012. Wheeee!!! A baby in the house again.

And not only that, I also found out mid-Ramadhan that one of my besties, Alphatin and her hubby-bubby Jasper are expecting as well! WOW!! Am just so stoked for these people. Good things usually come to those who wait and deserve it. I am so glad that these wonderful people are going to be blessed with one of the many gifts in life by Allah Almighty. Alhamdulillah...

I hope when it is my turn, I'd be just as lucky. InsyaAllah... I suppose all that urge to have a baby didn't go all to waste since two of the people I love in this world will be getting one of their own soon. It'll be great for sure!

p/s: Makbed also got a bouncing baby boy this year, who I have not met yet. But MASYAALLAH... he is GORGEOUS just like his big sister and momma. <3

Life After... Pt 1

Call it a wake-up call. Call it an epiphany. Call it therapy. Call it what you will. But as I was wallowing in my sorrows as 1st November 2017 began, and knowing that in 24 days I was going to meet my 34th birthday without my beloved Dad for the very first time, I thought to myself that I need to do this for my own healing.
Yes, I lost my Dad this year. He left to be with Allah at exactly half of this year, on 16th June 2017. When 2017 started I honestly thought it would be a great year. I went on my solo trip, I was on probation for a promotion at work, I was going to the gym, my family was in good health, everyone was happy. It was a great start of the year.
Then like the 2004 Tsunami, my whole world and life unexpectedly came tumbling upside down and inside out. All of a sudden my family had crises. *Note the plural form of the word "crisis"* And it started on a rather fine day on 28th April.
I was on edge that day as I did my colleague's wedding makeup. Part of me screa…

Life After... Pt4

"I want to see the trees."
Those were his last words to me on 26th May 2017. The day when we discovered Mum's cancer, the day Dad did his darnedest during physio at his bed just to get on the wheelchair, the day we took him for a little walk around the ward, the day before the 1st of Ramadhan... The day he had a stroke.
We would never hear his voice again after that day until Allah called him home on 16th June 2017, 21st Ramadhan 1438H. 
There were a few things that he wanted, which I failed to fulfill. For breakfast the day he was first brought to the hospital in Ipoh, he had told me he wanted fresh milk from Salim's Restaurant - I'm sure with 3 teaspoons of sugar for that perfect taste. While he was in the ward, he wanted some Miso soup from Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant, but logistically it was hard to get to the nearest Rakuzen and I only got him some Miso soup from Sushi Zanmai. He wanted some jelly when he was sitting on the wheelchair - I told him we would b…

Life After... Pt 2

Dad was admitted in the ICU on the morning of 30th April. He had a severe case of pneumonia (and no one knew how things escalated so quickly to acute pneumonia save for Allah). When we first arrived at the Accident & Emergency, the attending physician who is a Cardiologist specially assigned by a friend’s father as the Director of the hospital, explained that all they needed to do was to give Dad antibiotics and nebulizer. Dad was supposed to be in the ICU for three days for monitoring and treatment, and it was expected that he would be right as rain. Although the Doctor did say that there was a possibility that Dad may be intubated just to help him recover better. I didn’t know it then but it turned out that “intubated” meant Dad would be sedated. So when he was wheeled to his bay at the ICU and suddenly the Doctor said there was a complication, I felt an awful feeling at the pit of my stomach. Dad’s case was much more complex than a normal pneumonia case would be because he was …
