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…

The Time I was Flying Blue with KLM

About two months ago I came back from a magnificent travel experience to the UK and Paris. I fully intend to write all about it as it was my very first solo trip ever! But this post is not about that per se. I plan to break down the solo trip experience so that it will not be too heavy in one posting. 
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience travelling for the first time with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as they were my chosen carrier to take me on this wonderful journey. 
From the get go, I would say it was not exactly all smooth flowing. My own unfamiliarity and inexperience with them probably contributed to the little bumps along the way but thankfully their customer service team is well trained and equipped to help iron out any hurdles or uncertainties that I faced. 
The booking was unique in its own right. The selection of flight dates, times and class was all standard. Then when it came to payment was when I discovered the first uniqueness, or rather the second …

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 2

I've already had some food in my system, and while it's probably on its way to full digestion now, let's try putting in a half decent blog post.

Like I said, after a long, I believe 2-year hiatus from blogging, I had really thought I would let blogging die a natural death and stop just like that. But as things occur in my life, I find myself itching to write again.
Like today. 
First, during lunch time. 
One of my colleagues, let's call her Kay, told us that Hard Rock Cafe has a pretty good lunch set menu. It comes with a salad, main course and dessert, and a refillable drink for the price of a normal main course. So of course we jumped to it. The moment we got to HRC, it was almost a full house! We were lucky not to have to wait in a queue. Those people probably thought to take advantage of the lunch set too. 
Anyway, there were four main courses offered in the lunch set menu; Chicken Marinara, Chicken Pasta, Hamburger and Grilled Fish. I opted for the Chicken Marina…
