Zafeer was too sleepy and started getting cranky at that time padahal dia dok practise nyanyi birthday song since Qeeb's birthday. Teremenung dia tgk cake tuh.

GLC Lunch @ San Francisco Coffee

Cuti hari tuh dapat laa selit lunch date with my geng GLC. Lepas hantar Qeeb ke school rushed ke KL, terasa jauh jugak perjalanan walaupon bukan peak hour but it took me 40 minutes to reach KLCC.

Lunch with GLC @ KLCC

By the time i was there, Mas and D dah abes makan. Since i already ate with Qeeb, i ordered coffee sahaja.

Shara bagi some souvenirs from her vacay - bracelet and pouch. Which iols trus pakai hehe. Then Shara and Mas gerak balik office.

Disebabkan buku GLC again tak dapat dikesan and besides dah nak masuk new year, so we invested a new one. Nak pilih seketol pon susah, dah berkenan buku tuh ada rosak kat cover lah, kemek lah.

Then we settled down kat cafe atas Kinokunia - O'Coffee Club Xpress. It was nice, because takde orang sangat. But somehow we felt like we were in a library, lol!

Qeeb's 7th Birthday @ School

After exam week, i sent party packs and a cake to Qeeb's school. Coincidentally, his classmate also having birthday dekat2.

Naqeeb’s 7th Birthday

Dolu dia tak suker and specifically mentioned to me NO CAKE at kindy/ preschool. This year most prolly will be the first and last laaa nak treat classmates. Next year dah standard 2, cam too big dah nak celebrate kat skolah. I just wanted to see his facial expression biler kengkawan nyanyi birthday song....hahaha malu2. Glad cikgu dia tolong amikkan gambar and sent it over.

Qeeb chose these 2 cars as his birthday present. Every year tak penah dia pilih lain dari keta. Takleh sebarang kereta plak tuh. So bagi dia pilih sendiri yang dia suker senang.

5 Days of SAHM

5 days of mandatory leave. Experiencing how other SAHM does it. And oh boy different kind of stressful indeed. Itupon main cheat because Zafeer still hantar ke rumah tok wan. The main objective is to be around for Qeeb because it's an exam week. If i'm working, sampai rumah dah malam. So tinggal less than 2 hours jer to buat revision. He will be too tired and sleepy so there's no point of forcing him to study dah.

Day 1 - 30 Oct
First day of exam and also Qeeb's birthday. After buat revision sket in the morning. Send him off to school. Dia ada paper BM1, BM2 and Pendidikan Kesihatan. Then me and Jeeb went for a movie date (he also took 1 day leave). It's been a while since we last watch a movie! Sukeeee dapat tgk catchThor Ragnarok. Bebaloi2.  Balik picked up Qeeb from school, straight pegi rumah TokWan to pickup Zafeer.

Day 2 - 31 Oct
Second day of exam. Paper English 1, English 2 and Pendidikan Muzik. After dropped him off, i went to get a haircut. Then pegi dental appointment plak. Balik rumah susun Qeeb's party pack sket. Then gi pick him up kat school. Suka laa dia dapat balik rumah and main2 dolu. Lepas tuh gi amik Zafeer kat rumah Tok Wan but stucked lama sket because ada visitors.

Day 3 - 1 Nov
Third day of exam. Subjects quite heavy, ada Maths1, Maths2 and Pendidikan Islam. Pagi tuh gigih gak ler wat last minute revision but dia dah takde mood. Hohhhh stress sungguh. Dah memang masuk mode redha jelah. We went to have lunch at KFCand dropped him off kat school. Then im off to KLCC to have lunch with the GLC babes. It was already lunch hour, im already late and it took 44mins to drive there. Balik trus singgah Popular to buy Qeeb's art stuff for  his Pendidikan Seni paper. Malam tuh practise what to draw campor drama2 of course.

Day 4 - 2 Nov
Hohhh kejap jer dah day 4 and i haven't kemas my wardrobe and shelf and sumer lahh! But on the bright side it is the last day of exam! Yeehaaaa. No more revision night, no more bebel and pep talk. We had lunch at McD plak before send him off to school. Haha see banyak SAHM cheat kan sbb tak masak. Then gi Bank Rakyat to tukar debit card. But seriously their service is super slow. My number was tens away but sejam tunggu pon tak lepas. Slow giler so i gave up. They should consider to do it online and just post the debit card to their customer. Dapat laa kemas sket book shelf, filing. Text books pon nak kene return to school next Monday so i have to bungkus siap2.

Day 5 - 3 Nov
Last day of cutiiiiii!!! Pagi2 hantar both kiddos to Tok Wan's house so i can concentrate to sort baju for recycle. By noon dah sorted out 4 bags but headache strikes in plak. Then nak kene hantar party pack to Qeeb's school. Since i'm alone have to strategize how to carry everything from the house into a car (campor skali 2 paperbags full of baju for donation) and into the classroom (together with birthday cake).

Gi beli paper plates, collect cake and delivered everything by 3.30pm. Gi stabak just because i need a coffee and that was the nearest. Then i did the unplanned, gi massage kat Singgahsana. I just found out about the place time potong rambut hari tuh. Not exactly the best but dapat laaa kluarkan segala angin sampai berlawan2 burp dengan masseuse tuh.

That's the end of my cuti!

Qeeb's 7th Birthday

It's Naqeeb's birthday on 30th October. I've been flooding the same photos kat FB and instagram hak hak. But this blog always deserves more photos.

Naqeeb’s 7th Birthday

We collected the cake one day earlier from le Choutte Macaron. The initial plan was to celebrate on Monday, on his birth date itself. But after a few thoughts, why not just celebrate one day earlier since most of family members were around.

Naqeeb’s 7th Birthday

Had a quick lunch at Vivo while waiting for Kekami to join us.

Petang tuh amik gambar sket kat rumah first. I just need few good shots in calm mode. So i have more photos to choose from to masukkan dalam photobook.

Theme decor campor sukati. Backdrop star wars, tapik cake Roblox.

Naqeeb’s 7th Birthday

Yang bestnyer time collect this cake, Qeeb excitedly pointed out ada Roblox cake inside the chiller. Since i don't know much about Roblox, i don't know which cake he was referring to. He didn't know it was his. When the guy took it out nak masukkan dalam box, i said 'It's yours, Qeeb!' trus muka control malu-malu suka. Sebaik laaa dia recognized it's Roblox. We trusted Farhad's skill bab2 decorate the cake nie, so we let him surprise us.

Naqeeb’s 7th Birthday

To my dearest Qeeb,
My heart swelled with pride and relief as you were gaining the skills you needed to survive in this world. But of course i'm also (always) worried of many more milestones to come.
The milestones from here are less defined - wisdom, courage, discernment and more. There are no checklists. It’s no longer about knowing how to sit or stand, but when to sit or stand. It’s no longer about knowing how to walk, but where to walk. It’s no longer about knowing how to talk, but which words to use. 
Insya Allah. May you grow as a good Muslim and beautiful inside out.
Love, Mama
