40 Minutes To 26...

Hi there,
As I am typing this while barely being able to see into the tiny screen of my (borrowed) Blackberry, I am trying to find the words to express how I feel about turning a year older. Last year I did a similar post but it wasn`t published (which was soooo ironic since it was the year my age turned into my fave number and it was the best birthday ever!).

I remember feeling that I was entering my prime age. I felt powerful, like I was about to conquer the world! The prevoius year to that I did a post as well about how I felt about entering my 24th year (unwillingly). So here it is, how do I feel about turning 26? Well, on one hand I feel like I am really old. I feel like it is now time to really be serious, a time to start thinking about being investments, to buy or not to buy a house, etc.

At the same time however, it kind of feels unimportant as well. As if I had much more important things to do than watch the clock strike midnight to make me officially a year older. I hope that makes sense. Anyway, age aside I hope that my 26th year will be a good one. InsyaAllah, Amin.

This is all for now. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

P/S: I am currently sick with a runny nose (I haven`t been able to smell anything for the past 3 days) and a nasty cough. Not a very auspicious begining but I`m optimistic. Hehe.. Oh, and I apologise in advace for any horrendous typos that I might have made.

New Job, Sophie's Care And Running Around Like A Headless Chicken..

Hi there!
Those of you who are my friend on Facebook or follow me on Twitter would most probably know by now that I am currently working at a new hotel in the city. It's still a baby really, barely 6 months old with lots of improvements to be made but still, so far so good.

I had looked for a nursery for Sophie before I started work. I decided to send her to a nursery less then 10 minutes away. Even though I had quite a few issues with the place I didn't really have a choice because that was the nearest to my apartment. After registering her and paying RM520 inclusive of one time only registration fee, my aunt offered to take care of her. Bingung sy sekejap... (@,@)

On one hand I would prefer my own relative to care for her. On the other hand I've already paid the fees. Aduih... In the end I called the nursery's administrator and said that I would like to extend her enrollment for a month and she agreed.

Although I could have made things easier for myself by just sending Sophie off in the mornings and letting my aunt give her both her morning and evening bath, I decided to bathe her in the morning before going to work. I feel that it give us a bit of bonding time together since I will be away from her so much. After all, she is still so young. Takut pula dia lupa sy ni or get confused on which one is her Mama Na'udzubillah.

So in the morning I would wake up at 5.15am to give Sophie her early morning feed (she is my alarm) and after burping her I would get everything that could only be prepared in the morning ready. By 6am I would wake her and give her a bath (sometimes this has to be extended to 6.30am. By the time I get her dressed it would already be 6.30am or 7.00am. Its time for me to bathe, put on my makeup and work clothes.

I try to leave my house by 7.30am, send Sophie to my aunt's place, pesan apa yang patut, drive off to work while aiming to arrive by 8.15am because my punch in machine is 10 minutes early (I start work at 8.30am). Memang I'm in a time crunch everyday ni. Kalo dulu I get a taste of what it's like to be a stay at home mom, now I'm experiencing the working mom like. Kudos and respect for all working moms out there for sure. Ini belum lagi anak sudah besar sikit and malas mo bangun early in the morning. Sigh!

Whatever it is I'm thankful to have a job and my daughter so I will do whatever it takes to make things work. That's all for now, Cheers!

Hello there,
Am just testing to see if I could blog through my (borrowed) BB. Hehe.. The function is so different (qwerty keypad) that I  find myself tapping on the screen as if it is a touch screen like my htc. Hahaha... Silly me...

Anyway, this is all for now.. Enjoy your Sunday...

P/S: Sophie is growing so fast! Tomorrow she will be getting her 3rd month jab yang kaw2 punya.. Huhuhu...
