Farewell Lunch & FV at Bangsar Village

Went to BV to treat Shila a farewell lunch because she's leaving the company by end of this month. Why BVII, because ada 2 peminar tegar FV which are shila herself and Ira nak cuci2 mata.

Then we went to BV1 because ada yang nak beli chatime. Lalu Dash cafe terjebak pulok tgk all the pies and desserts yang tempting. Maka tapau lah 1 untuk tidak mengeciwakan anak tekak.

Bawak Qeeb and Zafeer pegi potong rambut last weekend. Qeeb was really cool because he knew that he will be rewarded with lolipop after siap potong rambut. While little Zafeer, baru pasang cover jer dah nanges menjejeh2. Kesiann....but rambut dah panjang ler dik! Dia pon asik tarik2 rimas jer biler panas.

Photobooks Collection

At the moment, i'm loving my Lifebuuk collection. It's actually 4R prints in one stack of 50pcs in one album with cool covers.

Lifebuuk Collection

They have 3 different covers every month to choose from. Each photo is also can be detached if you wish to tampal kat tempat lain or bagi to any one else.

When i uploaded above pic at instagram, some of my friends were asking camne rupa dalam book tuh. So here it is. If you cannot view it here, you may check out my Flickr account directly.

Qeeb's 3rd and 4th Day at School

On 3rd day of school we only went to check out on Qeeb during his lunch break because that morning bawak Zafeer gi appointment at HTAR. He didn't ate his bekal roti sangat. Dok main2 ngan kitowang sementara tunggu bell ring. So everything was considered normal.

On 4th day, i already started working. Cuma mampu bekalkan doa for Qeeb that everything will be ok at school. But rasa nak gugur jantung biler balik tuh he told me that someone took his money from his shirt's pocket. Oh nooooo ada kaki buli ker! Nih yang lomah nih takot dia kene aim jer pasnie. I wanted to ask his teacher but Qeeb tak bagi. But to get all the details from him pon susah. He did cerita that he still has another rm2 and he managed to buy nasik goreng and teh o ais cuma tak sempat nak abeskan because dah abes time rehat. He saw the boy who took his money and used it to buy a drink. Perghhh memang lah slumber giler. Kesian muka Qeeb cam down time dia citer tuh because that one ringgit was supposed to be his savings money.

I really hope that this is just a one time incident and Qeeb will not hide anything just to avoid my over dramatic response. Smoga dia dapat get along well with his new classmates and other schoolmates so that he'll enjoy his school.

Qeeb's 2nd Day at School

On 2nd day i waited for Qeeb at the school canteen. Melilau carik dia then baru lah nampak. He already started eating his bekal roti sambil diri because tak cukup space nak duduk. Which is a good sign, at least dia tak tunggu melangut. He insisted to buy air kotak milo again which costed rm2! Mahallll. I wanted to stock up air kotak milo kat umah Jeeb tak bagi plak because tanak jadik a must have item.

Biler tgk sesi jual beli little people ngan orang canteen memang sumpah kiut, termasuk lah Qeeb! Ada yang pegang wallet susah nak tarik kluar duit, ada yang beratur tapik lepas tuh cakap tak bawak duit, ada yang main hulur jer sumer duit. Tengok peniaga canteen sumer pon penyabar and very helpful.

Time balik plak i waited at Gate yang dah diconfirmed by the van driver. Saw the van driver pegi collect the kids kat canteen. Biler sumer turun, no sign of Qeeb. Mana pulakkkk budak neh! When i was about to go and find him, i saw him baru sampai kat tangga berpeloh2. He said he went to the other gate where the van driver dropped him time sampai skolah siang tadik, and he forgot to wait at the canteen. Alahaiiii abam Qeeb! At least he didn't cry panic kat gate sana tuh and trus cecepat gi gate lagik satu. His hands were so cold at that time, must be so damn nervous takot kene tinggal. Brave boy, may Allah always keep you safe and protect you from any harm.

Anyways, we are contemplating to sign him up for Dual Language Programme (DLP). But in the end we agreed anyway. I hope tak perlulah sampai nak kene tuition bagai. Way too early for that.

Qeeb's 1st day at School

Qeeb's first day at school which was supposed to be calm jadik chaotic at last minute. Sampai umah tok wan he wanted to eat chocolate cake. Ok, since i don't want him to risk kotoq kan baju skolah, i took it off. When i was about to pakai kan him balik the baju i saw ada chocolate cake bersepai kat lantai. Distractionnnnnnnnnnnnnnn! Time tuh lar the school van arrived.

Qeeb's Standard 1 Orientation Day

So kalut nak pakai kan him the shirt, socks and shoes. Luckily he already used to naik van so i just asked him to cecepat naik van because i don't like to keep people waiting. Tak sempat nak hug him and what not. Dah naik van we waited him plak kat rumah Hamzah because tau the van will pickup Hamzah there. Nampak Hamzah pakai tag baru tingat i put everything inside the folder sure Qeeb tak pasan, dang! Tetiba leh imagine aper yang chekgu commented "murid ker bag yang nak pakai tag tuh sbb simpan dalam bag"

Sempat lah waved kat Qeeb yang dalam van time tuh. Then konon nak intercepted kat school gate but dah nak start school dia tak sampai2 lagik. We waited for almost 1 hour there to make sure we did not missed him. Jeeb went to check out at the dewan but having difficulties because the teachers were very strict of allowing the parents to hang out and bersidai kat dewan. Dapat called the school van driver, rupanyer dia dropped off the kids kat gate lain! Whatttt?! Hangen kejap because tak dapat intercept Qeeb nak kluar kan the tag. Plus i don't know whether he really dah ada dalam dewan or not. Redha jelah anggap dia dah masuk because he already familiar with the school compound.

Negative thoughts really drained my energy! Lets focus on positivity cheq oiii! Baru benda kecik jaa (ekceli banyak campor benda lain skali yang tak kene mengene). Tak sempat nak fefeeling anak sulung masuk darjah 1, tak sempat nak amik gambar and tambah sebakul warnings and pesanan.

During his recess time, kitowang jenguk ler nak tgk how he handle process membeli kat canteen, where to sit, etc. He had bekal nasik goreng plus pocket money rm2 dengan pesanan penaja ada balance simpan dalam tabung. He did not want to eat the nasik goreng, instead he bought sosej rm1 and air kotak milo rm2 (i had to top up lagik singgit). So abes trus rm3 on day 1. Besok kita cuba lagik!

These photos were taken during orientation & briefing day.

Qeeb's Standard 1 Orientation Day

 While the parents dengar taklimat kat dewan, the kids went to the assigned classes to sit for assessment test.

2016 Brief Summary

2016 
2016 in a glance. A lot of beautiful and interesting memories to keep. 
  • 172 blog posts for 2016. Not bad eh! I guess smangat nak amik gambar helps. Pat myself on the shoulder. 
  • My highest traffic blog entry was GLC meetup @ SA with more than 3K pageviews. It was a one time hit, lol! 
  • I also got some of my photos printed on Lifebuuk. I love their monthly covers! Photobook takes so much time to siapkan. So this will do!
Lifebuuk Collection
  • We moved into our own home. Our casa. Our little space to roam freely. 
  • Breastfed Zafeer till he was 10 months old. I wish it can be longer but production turns low because he suddenly lost interest and bit me when i kept forcing him. So ocayyyy i got the hint.
  • Zafeer turns 1 yo. His birthday entry here.
  • Qeeb turns 6yo and his birthday entry here. Finished his preschool years and going to primary school next year.
  • Jeeb resigned from his company at Sentral. That means i have to drive alone. I missed the borak2 session and what i missed most was having the chance to take a nap while he drives :P
  • The monster theme i made for Qeeb's 3rd birthday party got repinned for 737 times at Pinterest! Last i check it is now at 773. 

  • One of my wish list was to masak for the family. Even though tak variety, but improving the basic first. Hopkos, nak masak for guests still segan. The noxxa and grill that i bought tuh ada laa jugak pakai and tak kutip habuk smata heheh.
  • Planner helps me to remember things, checklist helps me to do things. So it's important that i love my organizer, with fancy colorful pens and stickers to ensure i fully utilize it (good excuses to buy more stationery). Zafeer was a busy boy this year with quite a number of appointments, and we managed to attend all (takde kes terlupa or terlajak) and pleased everyone in HTAR and KK.
  • My sort of moleskine notebook almost full! Wpon takde time sangat nak update, but somehow i managed to fill up all the pages. I just realized i started the book in Nov 2015, peneman stress time kat HTAR. I even drew the room layout with all the beds and the name of ibu2 preemie yang bersilih ganti. 
Notes in notebook

  • Tempat percutian paling jauh was Bukit Tinggi. Thanks to few company events this year so rasa laa meriah sket like gathering at Janda Baik, family day at Sunway Lagoon, Star Wars movie at IOI.
  • We lost aunty Rose this year. May Allah blessed soul. Al-Fatihah.
  • Career wise, i joined a new team this year, learning new stuff, meeting new people, attended different kinds of meeting. It was interesting. But (there's always a but)...i felt uncertain for next year. Lets just hope for the best, if it does not work out, then it's time to move on.
HELLO 2017
Semoga Allah permudahkan semua urusan kita semua, insya Allah.

...and The Clock Struck 12 - Happy New Year!
